Epson MJ 8000C
Color inkjet printer, max. 1440x720 dpi, works Perfectly
Recommended Driver: gutenprint (Home page)
Generic Instructions: CUPS, no spooler


Printer supports direct text printing with the 'us-ascii' charset.


Japanese version of the Epson Stylus Color 3000.

Old reports for the Epson Stylus Color 3000:

Using the stcolor drivers, max resolution is 360dpi. Most other features are working, though. Epson sends a RIP module with the windows drivers that is a PS to ESC P/2 converter. I bought the printer expecting it to have native PS but it doesn't.

Should work quite well with the stp gimp-print driver. Someone let me know if it qualifies for perfect. (The gimp-print folks say that it does; good enough for me).

Consumables/Refills: 4 separate ink cartridges
