Junk, Trash, Terrible, C. R. A. P. No other word for it.

Tt71, Amazon
1 December 2013
  • Summary: If I could give this printer no stars I would. It has been nothing but a disappointment from day one. It is a piece of crap and the cost of the ink in comparison to the printer is absurd. The printing is slow, text clarity is fair at best, graphics/images are not any better and the amount of ink you go through is amazing.

ink costs are entirely unacceptable

a reader "_a_reader", Amazon
19 December 2010
  • Summary: I cannot believe how quickly this ran out of ink. This is a printer that I simply cannot afford to use. My next printer will not be an Epson. The print quality is ok - nothing to comment on either way, really. But, having paid for this printer, I am going to replace it with another one, because I just can't afford this.

highway robbery, by epson

kimber, Amazon
16 November 2010
  • Summary: If I'd had any idea that they'd rigged this printer to be *completely unable to print* when even one of their 4 separate ink cartridges (3 color, 1 "black") is out of ink, I would never have purchased the printer, and I'm now forced to waste all kinds of ink in order to dispose of the equipment (likely through a window).

beyond poor

kith1956, Ebay

  • Summary: this is the worst printer i have ever owned. it should be outlawed that unless all cartridges are in and have ink, the printer will not work even you do an advance set up and specify black ink only. i can' get beyond that. it doesn't matter that it can scan, fax, or make popcord, it can't even print without hassle and a lot of cash to keep purchasing those cartridges.

Worst Printer EVER

J.E. "lovesbooks", Amazon
16 December 2007
  • Summary: Since I bought this printer brand new, I probably should have waited until the product reviews came out. Everything works fine except the printer, which is the reason I use it most often. The photo and print quality are good, but it goes through ink too fast and when you run out, FORGET IT! You might as well throw the whole thing out. It won't register the new cartridge even though it's the correct one.

Terrible printer

Savvy Consumer, Amazon
26 September 2007
  • Summary: This printer gulps through ink and when you run out, you cannot print anything else until the cartridge is replaced. The scan quality is marginal at best. Receipts and other non-traditional media are problematic for this scanner. Online support for this Epson model on their website has not been available or 'down' the last 2 times that I have tried to access it. I just replaced my black cartridge and the printer only printed in color.

Ink ripoff - just too much

  • Summary: Yup, if it wasn't for the ink glitch, I will be giving it better... Because of it, this product doesn't even deserve to have one star!

Item arrived covered with blue slime

M. Shikibu, Amazon
5 July 2007
  • Summary: I just received this item, used, and when I took it out of the box, the ink cartridge had broken and the whole item was covered in a blue slime. I put it back in the box and emailed the shipper. Hopefully they'll send me a call tag to have it picked up, and charge back my credit card. I don't know whether it works or not, but it shouldn't be shipped with the ink cartridge in the machine.

Wow. Complete and utter WASTE of money.

K. Lee "kaylee", Amazon
23 January 2007
  • Summary: I had this printer for about two months before it started flaking out on me. I got it for [...] after rebate, and it's one of the worst purchases I have ever made. Don't get me wrong, it copies and scans wonderfully. But its primary function is to print - but it fails here. I depend on good ink quality for shipping labels, resumes, academic papers - and ink splotches started appearing, gaps on the printout that repeated head cleaning and maintenance could not fix.
