The copy sensitivity of this tool is also very impressive with the scan quality being generally pleasing. Just like any other tool however, this printer also has its downside. It lacks an automatic document feeder which is a good feature to have in a typical printer. Its printing speed of 10.8 pages per minute is very slow even when in draft mode, and in the normal mode, the speed is only 1.7 pages per minute for both color and monochrome. Drivers available for this tool include the Epson Scan which directly controls all scanner features giving professional quality results. This can be accessed from any application that supports the TWAIN standard. The Epson EasyPrintModule is also available. It is the easiest way to print directly and there is no need to select print settings from the printer driver because it is embedded right into the software's print screen. EasyPrint is available with Windows 98/Me/2000/XP and Mac OS x 10.2 or later versions. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and EPSON CX5900/CX6000/DX6000 errors before installing any driver updates.
