Summary: As many of the other recent reviewers, I bought this as a replacement for the exact same all-in-one printer that I have had in a relative's house for many years. The one I received was brand new, in a factory sealed box, and I am very happy with it. It is a great old printer, very durable and should last a long time. One Caveat: if you're buying this as brand new, it's probably "new old stock" and the ink tanks may be dry. I knew that and had no issue with it.
Summary: I bought this as a replacement for the exact same printer that I'd had for six years. Very happy with it. The old one just quit, it had been through quite a lot, homework, copying of homework and many other papers, I also design graphics for product labels, and printed many vinyl labels through this printer with no problem, high quality too. Not to mention photos as well. Highly recommend it. Only thing is be prepared, it's big, takes a lot of space, but worth it.
Best printer at the lower end price level...love it!

Summary: I bought this printer because it was very affordable and does everything. It has been excellent, especially the scanner which I use a lot. The software that came with the printer easily installs. My only complaint is that the printer will not print if the color cartridges are empty, will not print black alone, but will mix colors to make black if the black cartridge is empty...strange?! I always order cartridges from Epson, they arrive promptly.
Summary: I have had this printer for 8 years and has always worked great it just died and I am happy that I am able to purchase one here on this site and I can't wait till it gets here as one was not available locally for me. Mine did not use a lot of ink either. I have recommended this printer to all my friends who went out bought it and they also love it.
Summary: After faulty MFC-210C and blurry MP450, I bought this printer. I am very happy with this. All functions are simple and to my utmost satisfaction. The first day, I printed 25 glossy letter photos and they are all vry good. So tried all other brands before Epson but No other can beet Epson for color photo printing. I am just wondering now why I wasted my money and time on other brands.
Summary: Works well. It prints how I expected it to for a low priced printer. I picked it up at a local Staples for $59.95 after rebates and it does everything I wanted it to. I love having the scanner and with seperate inks, it saves me a lot of money on refills. I liked the software that came with it and it is easy to use to me. Epson is a great company and this is a great printer.
Summary: Just bought and installed it , installation was a breeze. Ran my first print , good print results and extremetly quiet while printing. Scanned a picture and it scanned perfect with great results but it was bit slow and the software lets you save in various formats like PDF JPEG TIFF. Love the single button copy feature but a bit slow though. Can't expect more for that price. Overall 5 stars, just wish the inks were a bit cheaper. Very happy with my purchase.
