SLOW, expensive ink, but good quality

JBob, Amazon
27 November 2012
  • Summary: The print quality is good on this machines, it just takes forever to print something. When you turn it on and try to print something it takes a least a full minute maybe longer to warm up before it even starts printing. If you are printing a detailed color job, it then takes a long time to print. For simple black ink jobs, once it is warmed up it is pretty quick. No wireless printing capabilities built in, and difficult to install the drivers if you don't have the disk.

Uses too much ink

bookbuyer, Amazon
1 December 2010
  • Summary: I've had this printer for a couple years and it works but it seems like I'm constantly out of ink and I rarely print things. It runs through black ink very quickly. I also runs through the color cartridges suprisingly fast even though I never print photos or things with much color.

not very efficient

somewhere in utah, Amazon
17 April 2008
  • Summary: We've had this printer for almost 2 years. The scanner works great I can't complain about that. The ink is expensive and if you try to refill the cartriges the printer prints out lines and does weird stuff. The paper feeder is horrible. It can't sense where the paper is very good and just makes a really loud noise until you move the paper to a perfect spot. This printer is annoying.

Fine, when it allows you to print

Deanne O., Amazon
12 December 2007
  • Summary: We've been pretty happy with the scanning on this printer, and the printing, when it allows you to do so. We've done photos and documents and, to my untrained eye, they all look pretty good. However, like other users, I find that I simply am unable to print when, for example, I am out of cyan ink and I simply want to print a black and white document. I feel terrible because this is only about a year old, but we're going to have to throw it out.

I'll Never Buy and Epson Again

Michael J. Miller "derrmill", Amazon
13 August 2007
  • Summary: I bought this printer to so I'd have an all in one and save the desk space and I really regret getting rid of my old Canon scanner and HP printer. The old canon scanned with one press of a button, this one takes a few too many steps and the scanning interface isn't as friendly as canon's I am constantly running out of ink, this Epson has the shortest ink life I've ever seen in a printer. And when one color runs out, the printer won't work at all. It is very frustrating.

awful product, worse customer support

Nathan Alexander, Amazon
18 July 2007
  • Summary: I have had nothing but trouble with epson all-in-one, save the first couple months after purchase. Photo printing has always been marginal, but recently I purchased ink cartridges from epson, and now the colors will not print. I have done everything they recommend, and sadly I have been left to an answer of "we are sorry this happened." That does not give me any faith in Epson nor the products they sell. Never again will I buy from Epson.

spend a little bit more

Steven J. Rager "rage_72", Amazon
25 February 2007
  • Summary: For a few bucks more you can get a decent 3 in 1 from HP that will probably work better than this. I thought it was cool that instead of one multi-colored print cartridge (cyan, yellow, & magenta) it had separate cart's, but the down side is that they don't hold much ink and when you run out of one color you are done printing until you replace it (i.e. if you're out of yellow, you can't print a black text document). There are 2 things that really bother me. 1.

Paper doesn't feed properly

robin brown, Amazon
18 November 2006
  • Summary: A fine printer- if you don't mind constantly standing over it and sheperding each page of paper into the machine. The automatic feeding works very poorly.

Save money on the printer...spend it on the ink

habblie, Amazon
4 November 2006
  • Summary: Great print/scan/copy quality. Smooth lines and blending and the ink doesn't smudge easily. But be prepared to spend a FORTUNE on ink. I have a small home business, so I use it more than the average user, but not a whole lot. In the six weeks I had it I have gone through two ink cartridges, $40 worth. I printed about 800 pages. If you want awesome prints with a good looking printer that is cheap and easy to use, this is your machine.

I love it except...

amo4k, Amazon
16 April 2006
  • Summary: I love everything about my Epson CX 3810 printer except just a couple things. 1. It will not scan text and convert them to word documents. It makes a picture of everything. Great for photos and creating pdf files, but not so great when you need to scan a text document and edit it. 2. It flies through the ink. I've bought two replacement black cartridges and one each of all the colors in the last six months.
