The budget ink-jet printer market is filled with models that promise a lot in exchange for modest sums these days: fast printing times, laser-sharp text prints, quick drying inks, multiple media output, memory card readers, etc. The Epson C120 falls in the under $70 category, but brings some impressive features (and quirks) to the budget home business and family printer category.
The exterior of the Epson C120 is a handsome shiny black enclosure with a modest footprint in it's non-use closed form. The plastic itself is a bit thinner than we'd prefer, but that's the norm in the price range. One thing we didn't like was how easy it was to mar the pristine shiny case with fingerprints, but that's because we're neat freaks. If you purchase a C120, be sure to keep a non-smudging cloth around. Beauty takes some upkeep.
