Epson Stylus C42 Review


 Epson's Stylus C42 UX is an inkjet printer introduced in 2002 and largely representative of inkjet technology of the early 2000s. Compared to newer models it's slow, lacks the clarity of newer multi-ink models, suffers from a handful of design points that will likely frustrate more than they please, and cannot be easily recommended eight years since its release. 


 The C42 UX measures 16.7" by 18.1" by 10.9" and weighs 6.3 lbs with its ink cartridges installed, making it easy to place alongside other equipment on most pieces of furniture and easy for the home user to transport when necessary. 

The printer produces black pages at a speed of approximately 12 pages per minute and color pages at a speed of approximately 5.5 pages per minute. It is also rated to produce 4" by 6" photos at a speed of 2:04 or less and 8" by 10" photos in 4:55 or less. The printer has a minimum ink droplet size of 6 picoliters.
The printer has a maximum paper width of 9.5" and a maximum printable area of 8.26" by 10.76". It supports printing to Letter, Legal, Half-letter, Executive, and user defined sizes between 3.5" by 3.5" and 8.5" by 44". 
The printer supports printing to plain bond paper, photo paper, premium glossy photo paper, premium bright white paper, high quality ink jet paper, matte paper heavyweight, double-sided matte paper, photo quality ink jet paper and cars, photo quality glossy film, photo quality self-adhesive sheets, glossy photo paper and cards, photo stickers, iron-on cool peel transfer paper, inkjet transparencies, and banner paper. It also supports standard envelopes in plain, bond, and air mail paper. Its maximum paper thickness is .27mm. 
The printer is rated to hold 100 sheets or 10 envelopes of paper, standard for models like this one. Users looking to print more than this on a regular basis will likely want to consider a personal laser printer instead.


 The printer produces images at a maximum resoution of 2880 by 720 optimized dots per inch on certain media types, which has been doubled by newer inkjet printers intended for similar markets. 

The printer uses a 4-color (CMYK) micro pieza inkjet system to print images and text. Newer printers offer more sophisticated multi-cartridge systems for both black and color inks, allowing for users to replace only the colors being used regularly (as opposed to the entire cartridge, as has to be done on a printer like this where all color inks are stored in the same cartridge). 
The printer's monochrome head has 48 nozzles on it, and each color cartridge has 15 nozzles per color, well under what's offered by either newer or more professional inkjet printers.
The printer includes only a USB port for connectivity. Many newer printers offer wireless printing, Bluetooth printing, printing from remote devices, or at least built-in network support, all of which would have to be achieved through workarounds and printer sharing, as well as additional hardware, if you want something similar from this model. 
Many users complain about this printer's loud noise, relatively low print quality, and incredibly brief ink cartridge life, as well as its tendency to clog if it goes unused for any substantive period of time, requiring external cleaning solutions and time-consuming maintenance. Given that this printer is now out of manufacture, testing the printer before purchasing it used is crucial, as it may very well have serious issues with actually delivering and drying ink onto a printed page. 
Epson does not make drivers for Windows versions beyond XP or for Mac OS X versions beyond 10.1.5 available (it is compatible with Mac OS 8 and Mac OS 9 if needed), likely making additional solutions needed in order to ensure compatibility with newer systems.
