Nice Idea, But...
23 August 2011
Summary: After researching color laser machines thoroughly, I purchased this unit in 2006 because I wanted to pitch my separate peripherals including inkjets (tired of ink heads drying out from nonuse) in favor of quality color laser AIO. One of the reasons I bought this unit was because of PC Magazine's recommendation over the then HP Color LaserJet 2840. I wasn't disappointed, at least, not initially.
Summary: This is a great printer for the number of features for the money. I only wish it could scan to email instead of requiring that you use their Epson scan application. Push scan only works for a small number of licenses that they send with the unit. Most smaller printers now days support wireless directly and also scan to email without any additional software required so it is a bummer that this unit can't do it.
printer WILL NOT OPERATE WITHOUT $250 REPLACEMENT PHOTOCONDUCTOR!

Summary: printer WILL NOT OPERATE WITHOUT $250 REPLACEMENT PHOTOCONDUCTOR! and have fun trying to buy the photoconductor locally, because it's not sold anywhere in the greater Phoenix AZ area. basically, this printer has become the elephant in the room in my office. it's just taking up space and collecting dust!
Summary: Epson dropped this line, probably due to the ink lawsuit that they lost. It has amazing color at normal settings. People always ask if I tore the prints out of a book. If you are looking for a photo printer, it is merely OK. I bought it because I had a son and daughter in high school. I was feeding my inkjet every week. The page estimate per cartridge runs true to claims based on the % of color on each page.
Summary: I have owned this printer for over a year, and it has definitely been the best printer I have ever owned. 2 Macs and 1 PC, all interface seamlessly through a Linksys wireless router. BEAUTIFUL color prints, excellent black text (don't believe CNET!). I got this at Costco for about $550 after trying all of the other (cheaper) all-in-one lasers they had. Yes, it is expensive, but for the quality you get, I consider it a BARGAIN.
Summary: I use this for a small law office, its print quality and speed are quite good, though black and white text is slightly thin and the colors can band a little on some jobs, HP might be slightly better, though print quality is strong all around. Fax and scanning work well. It is a bit noisy, and its easy to spill toner when installing, which is then pretty tough to clean.
The most frustrating experience I have ever had with electronics

Summary: I continue to have problems with this printer. I am so frustrated with it that I have shifted my printing to my old HP AIO monochrome laser printer. When I print, the Epson prints a small line at the top of each page and continues printing multiple pages, even when the document is but one (1) page.
Macintosh users -- this is a wonderful workhorse of a machine

Summary: We have two networked Macs, and our Epson Aculaser is a dream. We've had this all-in-one printer/copier/scanner/faxer for over a year, more like two. We were one of the early purchasers, bought one when it first came out. We use our CX11NF all the time for printing, copying, scanning. The printer portion is perfect for Macs. It coordinates with our Macs very well, which is hard to find in this world of M$ Windows, giving us no headaches.
Summary: Granted I've not had it long (Nov 2007), but this is a wonderful printer. No problems yet and the photo and graphic quality blows others in it's price range away! (Memo to self: I will never ever buy a Brother product again after experiencing the awesomeness of Epson). Text is crisp and clean and super fast ~25ppm The setup was easy but time consuming (mostly moving furniture to fit this beheamoth, and carefully removing all the packing and tape and inserting the toner...
