Summary: This is my long term usage report, I've had the printer for 2 years now. The printer does what it's supposed to do but you have to work with it. I have had worse experience with other inkjet printers in the past but I would still not describe this one as a positive one.
Regardless of how I followed the directions to get better dolor, streaks

Summary: Worked flawlessly for 8 months and then all went down hill. Regardless of how I followed the directions to get better dolor, streaks, odd colors and wasted ink made this a bad purchase. If it would have lasted longer (at least 2 years) I would have been satisfied.
Summary: The function set of this printer is very nice, and the "footprint" is compact. The CD/DVD print & envelope print functions work well with the exception that the prompting is a little involved. The included software works well .
Summary: This is the 3rd one of these I've had. Epson finally sent me a NEW one this time instead of the re-furbished ones they usually send out for replacement printers. I'm hoping they have fixed the ink distribution system in the newer one.
Summary: When my XP-350 works, it produces very good quality photo prints - crisp, good color & detail. Text quality has not been as crisp as my other brand all-in-one printer. Unfortunately within the last 6 months I have had to return 2 XP-350s to Epson for replacement.

Wastes Ink, Print Head clogs irretrievably; otherwise a decent All in One

Summary: This All in one is worth at least 4 stars when it works. Print Heads continually need to have the Cleaning a Cycle performed. Not clear to me if this is a problem with the hardware or with the 277 ink which is unique to this printer and the XP-950.
Excerpt: Not as user friendly as my previous non-Epson. To print envelopes you have to empty the paper feeder and adjust feed guides. Not required with previous printer. Also doesn't print USPS address bar codes. Other functions are also more complicated. I don't understand why they designed it this way.
Summary: (Initial review Feb, 2014) Bought new. Initially promising given rather intuitive touchscreen. Not much good to say after that. Printer worked well for only one month, but required re-boots frequently. Now the machine is entirely unresponsive. Lights blinking but the LCD screen is entirely blank.
