thanks alot for the replies...terry do you like the cx4800 and are you satisfied with the way it prints and transfers..and anyone else that owns this printer how does it work for you......the doc
I've had the CX4800 for about 7 weeks. It gets used daily for business printing and is my backup t-shirt printer. Maybe 20 - 40 full pages per day.

I only bought the CX4800 because I knew I wasn't going to put a bulk ink system on this printer and it was only $20 more than the C88.

Uses same inks as C88, etc. So ink will cost less (versus 6-colors). I like that if I run out of ink I can get ink easily. I order at buy.com right now and if you get the value-pack you also get 50 free sheets of 4x6 paper (plus free shipping).

Scanner is just as good as my older stand-alone. The camera flash card download to my computer was really fast and easy. B/W or color copier is handy.

I don't expect this printer to last more than a year, but if it does...that's great.

Per reading reviews...this model was not a lemon (other CX's were).

Also, there's a Y group "Epson_Printers" in case anyone wants to get into technical stuff, tweaks, fixing your own, cleaning.

The only downside is seems to eat up ink really fast. I'm blowing through 2 blacks for every color. I seem like I'm changing carts all the time. I have an older Epson 900 that has bigger carts...so guess I've been spoil for nearly 10 years (that's how long my 900s have been chugging away).

If you are using any kind of graphics software,there usually is an option to "mirror" in the software besides the Epson printer software.

Some transfer papers...especially the opaques for dark shirts you print the image normally (as in do not mirror). So read the directions;)

if i scan a picture and then print that picture on transfer paper will it come out on the garment the same way the picture is taken or do i have to mirror the image somehow and if so does the epson cx4800 have a way of doing that......i went to buy one today and the sales rep did not give me much info on the subject...soooo...i decided to ask the experts b/4 i buy....thanks the doc
