Ink cartridges.

rynait, Ebay
3 January 2008
  • Summary: I had been relying on an manufacturer that supplied me sponge-type refillable cartridges and their inks (for refilling) for about 3 years. To my disappointment they announced they had reformulated their ink. I believe in mixing ink formulation is "bad" for printer. Typically would be easier to clean out the existing refillable cartridge, but cartridge have sponge, which means a lot of effort and money (for cleaner) to clean ink out.

  • Summary: I would not buy this product again. This product looks good and is advertised as a good reliable inexpensive printer. It seems to have a very short usable life. It was a mistake to purchase it in the first place.

  • Summary: Ink too expensive because the printer refuses to print when one cartridge is maxed out (it counts the letters, evidently)I filled mine with 3 full colored ink cartridges, and the ink went down the same rate as the black, even though I never printed color.

Epson CX5200 a pile of JUNK

tuetsu, Ciao
19 September 2007
  • Excerpt: You have probably read the earlier reviews telling you how good the Epson CX5200 is for printing and scanning, but just wait till your 12 month warranty runs out and thats when the fun will begin. This printer is gauranteed to break after 1 year. Just Google "Epson CX5200 error" and you will find tons of complaints for this printer.
  • Pros: If you are intending of buying a new printer every year then buy the Epson CX5200
  • Cons: So many problems with this printer  .  Just Google "Epson CX5200 error" and read for youself .

Disappointing Print Outs

missyk, Ciao
3 November 2006
  • Excerpt: I have had my CX5200 for a couple of years now. For the first six months I was very happy with the quality of the prints it produced but then it started to deteriorate and now (despite going through the easy to use head cleaning procedure) it is only fit for printing out very rough reference pages and I seldom try to print in colour as this is always poor quality.
  • Pros: All in One
  • Cons: Expensive cartridges

Fantastic scanner, photocopier + printer All-In-1!

  • Excerpt: I have been using my Epson Stylus CX5200 for over two years, and I want to write about what good quality print-outs I get from it. It produces such good results, when scanning and photocopying documents, that friends always comment, 'Wow, your printer's really good'. My printer not only prints, but scans and photocopies too. Anything I photocopy, even photos, come out very nicely Background The printer cost about £150.
  • Pros: Fantastic print quality of photos  +  documents, both printed, and scanned ones !
  • Cons: Expensive ink cartridges
