Summary: The printer can do a great job but it has one FATAL FLAW and one annoying flaw. FATAL FLAW: Often, with PDF files, it will starting printing total gibberish. There seems to be little pattern to it, but if you just resend the print job it may or may not print it correctly.
Best printer I have ever owned.I will probably never own anything but epson
13 January 2012
Summary: Great printer. It is fast and has stunning color but that stunning color takes a lot of ink. Continuous ink systems are available at reasonable prices. They dramatically decrease the cost of ink. This printer is so good that I am on my third one. I have worn out two of them.
Summary: The printer goes thru ink like crazy and has a very short life span. After 2 years, I received a prompt that the ink pads were at the end of their cycle and to contact Epson. I went to the Epson website and they state: All Epson consumer ink jet products have a finite life span due to component wear...
Summary: This printer drinks ink!!!!! I own this printer almost two years now. In the beginning it was beautiful!! IT prints excellant photos!!! Regular printing is iffy. Prints beautiful when it prints properly. You don't get many pages and you have to replace INK!
Summary: This printer uses ink to clean the heads every time I print a page. Expect to buy and replace all the ink cartridges every month, even if you are only printing a dozen pages of mostly black text each month.
Summary: I've had the Artisan 700 printer for about a year and a half. Most of my printing is not of photos, although I did recently print numerous 6 x 4's from my digital camera. The photos came out better than any other printer I've used when printing photos.
Summary: I have owned an Epson Artisan 700 for a year and a half, and I'm very disappointed in the quality and longevity of the machine. It prints fine. Actually, it is a great printer. It just grinds to a halt when it has the slightest problem, which is often. It eats up ink like you would not believe.
Summary: I have had a number of printers over the years and this one comes in dead last. We replaced the Canon that was annoying us with this one, spending a bit more figuring we were going to get some quality. What a poorly designed hunk of junk.
Summary: Very good printer, good print quality. Copy function works well. My wife uses it in a very low volume manner. Beware, though. This printer DEVOURS ink, and so far, haven't been able to figure out a way to tell it to continue printing when it thinks the cartridge is empty. It simply refuses.
Summary: I have had the Artisan 700 for probably a year and it has been nothing but trouble. I decided to finally write this review after it rejected a non-Epson black ink cartridge today (one that's supposed to work with it), causing me to waste another half a day having to run out to buy another cartridge.
