STAY AWAY FROM EPSON
Mark Hamilton, Amazon

Summary: Epson products are cheap and work for 12 months, then the wheels fall off. Replacement parts are more than the original printer. I am never buying EPSON products again (and I have a wide range).
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.

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!
If you are looking for a home laser printer ... BUY THIS

Summary: We did lots of research before we bought this laser printer and it really paid off; this was exactly what we hoped it would be. It is definitely larger than a basic desk printer so plan head for a location. It was easy to set-up and install on our 4 computer home network. We regularly use the print, fax and copy functions and all work smoothly with very good quality output.
Summary: ** Update August 25, 2007 -- just wanted to say it's been four months and I still LOVE LOVE LOVE my printer. I literally hug it every day. ** OK, so I have only owned this for two days, but so far my experiences have been as follows: 1. Ordered overnight from The Epson Store. Total with overnight shipping was $619.95, a total deal. 2. Arrived as promised, packed very securely.
Summary: i have a small biz with three macs and one windows machine. the epson is the FOURTH printer we have tried in the last few months. we need to network our printer and i wanted to give everyone the ability to scan to their computers. i tried the HP multifuntion 8410 and a cannon printer (not networked, but shared). THE HP STINKS.. what a piece of garbage. the cannon was OK, but didnt really do what we wanted AND the print quality is crappy.
Summary: I purchased an CX11NF for about $750... I am very pleased with the speed and crispness of the printer and copier functions. CNET claims this printer has less than good black text quality. I don't agree... the text is VERY sharp. 5 years ago a printer of this quality would have cost $8000 from Xerox. If you could even have gotten it. Two nits: 1) fax functionality has some bugs in that it rarely picks up the shared line when you are talking on the phone.
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.
