Total junk, run fast away from Epson and buy an HP.
29 July 2013
Summary: I bought this printer brand new. It immediately said the ink level is low, and to replace noted cartridge(s). There is no way it could have run out of ink in such a short time with so little use. Furthermore, if even just one of the cartridges is low, it not only won't let you print in other colors or black/white, but it disables the whole machine so you cannot scan or copy either until you buy more cartridges!
Excerpt: The Epson Artisan 800 was sold as the best printer since the handheld calculator - print quality, picture quality, wireless capability, flatbed scanner..... Sounds too good to be true? Well it is. Reality rears its ugly head: the printer ROARS through ink - and I'm talking ridiculous amounts of ink. The picture quality is fair, but only if you use Epson papers. Kodak papers print out a grainy browish mess.
Excerpt: I had this printer for a little over a year when it stopped working completely. An error message came up about a paper jam, which was cleared, but the error would not go away. After doing some research online, I found this had happened to a LOT of other people. Obviously a defect with the printer. When I contacted Epson, they informed me the warranty was only one year. I would have to pay to ship it to a repair center, pay to have it repaired, and pay to have it...
Summary: MY WORST NIGHTMARE!! I have a house in San Antonio, but live in Mexico City, i bought this product and opened until i arrived to Mexico, It didn't work, i lost $144.00usd, i couldn't print a single page. this happens when you buy refurbished products. The Surpised was when i went to BEST BUY and found a EPSON ARTISAN 810 and it was at 170.00usd only 26 usd more. Know i hope to get my money back, or they replaced the product for me.
Summary: If you are reading this, then I suspect like me you are the type to thoroughly research a product like the Artisan 800 before buying. I can save you from expending any further time. Do not buy this printer.
The first Artisan 800 arrived and right out of the box was printing blank pages.
