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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: Previous to the CX5800F, I had the CX5400 which had a great scanner. It scanned not only flat images from paper, but images in 3D (for instance jewelry, pottery, bottles and jars, what have you) which I need for my work as a magazine layout artist. When the printer part of the 5400 died after less than 2 years, Epson was not able to fix or troubleshoot it, and invited me to buy a new unit under the Epson Loyalty program at a discount.
