Summary: I bought the Epson Stylus CX4200 because my own stopped printing. I couldn't use a new printer because the OS on my Mac wouldn't accept a new printer, and I couldn't upgrade my system. The Epson Stylus prints beautifully, but when copying there is a line on the left side of the paper. I might be able to remedy that if I really took the time to troubleshoot. Hopefully, this one will work until my next new computer purchase.
Summary: Reason for purchase: The printer that I had was an Epson ActionLaser 1400. A particularly archaic piece of machinery. That printer lasted my family and me quite a long time (and a few States). In other words, I figure that Epson is a pretty decent [printer] company. All of that said, I really didn't want a common (cheap) Lexmark. I'm not entirely sure what all that I like about this printer. From what I came from, anything was pretty much worth it.
Summary: I ourchased this printer mainly because the replacement ink cartridges are the least expensive of any other printer on the market. I was ablt to purchase this printer for about the samer money as it would cost me to replace the cartridges on my pervious printer. I pruchased an Epson for my winter residence in Florida for the same reason.
Summary: Read many reviews before buying as I do with everything. Based on editor and user reviews this seemed to be the best printer to replace my other Epsons which were getting old and unreliable. I had the Epson 600, 700 and 750 for my previous professional photography work which at the time were great but the technology of the new printers (in this case an -all in one-) makes my new work 100% easier and much faster (not to mention much much quieter).
Summary: I like that the epson printers have been around awhile and have a good website and free help. It is also easy to find inexpensive to find ink online for them too. Look at inkblvd.com, if you sign up for their email, they will send you coupons also.
Summary: This is not the best printer or is it expensive. For the price, it does everything well. It prints very good, what I expect from an epson. Ink should not be a problem if you find some deals online. Great printer for the money.
Summary: The printer is a good value for the money. I love that all the ink cartridges are individual. You only have to change the colors that you need. It was fairly easy to set everything up. Though I did need to call Epson b/c the set-up disk that came with the printer was not working properly. But the tech support at Epson was wonderful. And they walked me through step by step of what I had to do.
