Epson Stylus C62
Color inkjet printer, max. 5760x720 dpi, works Perfectly
Recommended Driver: gutenprint (Home page)
Generic Instructions: CUPS, no spooler


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


4-ink home printer with a high resolution (Epson claims 5760x720 dpi), parallel and USB port.

Supported by Gimp-Print 4.2.2 or newer (use it as a C60 with older Gimp-Print versions). The output quality is excellent, nearly as good as the quality of the Epson Stylus Photo (6-ink) printers.

As this printer has only a minimum ink droplet size of 4pl 5760x720 dpi will not give a visibly better output quality as 2880x720 dpi. So this printer can be rated as "Perfectly" working also if its 5760x720 dpi mode (if it is really implemented in the hardware) is not supported by Gimp-Print.

But Gimp-Print allows to print with this printer in 2880x1440 dpi and 1440x1440 dpi. So it is at least possible to print with the same amount of pixels per square meter as Epson promises.
