British website posts review of Epson's latest printer, which is to be sold in the USA as the Stylus Photo 1280...
The Computer Darkroom website, run by Ian Lyons in the UK, has posted a review of Epson's latest printer, alternately known as the Stylus Photo 1290 or 1280 (depending on where in the world you are...) Ian finds plenty to like about the printer, but in the end doesn't feel it is worth it for most users of the current Stylus Photo 1270 printer to upgrade to the new model:
"Contrary to what some of you reading this review may have thought, I do believe the 1290/80 is an improvement over the Photo 1270. It is not the earth shattering improvement that was the 1270 over the 1200, which may explain why there was no really big hurrah at their launch. If it were software, it would be considered a "dot" release." For more on the changes in the new printer and how it fares in use, read Ian's full review...
