Summary: THe seller was great... no issues.. I bought the unit to use up a supply of ink before I buy another brand of printer... Epson works great IF IF you use it all the time, if you let it sit for a week...GOOD LUCK... Once the ink starts to dry out you either scrap the printer or attempt to get it clean and running again.. On line I find a lot of similar disgusted former epson users.. I just scrapped 3 repeat 3 units, 1-C60,2 C84,s because they would not clean and print..
Summary: I just wanted to write a review for my ol' CX6400. I purchased mine back in 2003, and this week in 2010, it finally gave up the ghost. For 7 years (7!!), this printer was my handy workhorse- printing, copying, scanning, doing everything I asked of it, and never once did it ever give me any problems. Sure, we had a few smudgy prints here and there, and towards the last month it was working, it was starting to get a little wonky, but man. Think of it.
Summary: I had the ink carts for this printer in advance and the printer price was low. Well, I've already written my review, to wit: I won't be back to eBay since the printer has no manual,no software and is useless to me. I can't download software from Epson which requires an administrator level password which I don't have. I have to recycle (toss!) this printer and I only can be burned once, so EBay? Never again.
Dead printhead equal dead Epson Stylus CX6400..stay away!

Summary: This printer stopped working after 18 mos and I could not get EPSON to get the problem fixed under warranty. They reported that the printhead needed to be replaced (by me of course) because I chose to use non standard ink cartridges (non EPSON). It only printed in cyan and would not use the black or magenta inks even after replacing with only EPSON cartridges. I am so disappointed in this purchase! I will not purchase another EPSON again!
Summary: As stated by many many people who bought this printer. The print head is rubbish. I've owned this printer for a little less than 2yrs now. And, while it printed fantastically when new, it has now fallen victim to the clogged print head problem that is well documented on the internet. I recently changed ink cartridges and performed the head cleaning multiple times, but the printer will not longer print black at all, and yellow and cyan are spotty at best.
Summary: I bought my first Epson CX6400 because I liked the idea of individual ink color cartridges. After owning the HP printer, which by the way was a good printer too, I needed the option of changing empty cartridges of the cyan more often than any other color. I also was looking for a all-in-one. I used the CX6400 for all my printing, brochures 2000 a year, business cards, statements, pictures, all kinds of copies and printouts. It was truly a workhorse.
Summary: I was very satisfied with my CX6400 when I first bought it. After having to constantly buy ink, and get these continuous pop up messages reminding me to buy more ink, and then finally buy more ink just to have the printer quit printing !!! I am fed up with Epson. There was a class action lawsuit about Epson's not printing and forcing you to buy more ink when the ink tanks were low (not even out of ink). The resolution? They would give you $20 worth of ink.
Summary: This is an annoying piece of equipment designed solely to force you to buy more ink catridges. Point being, even though you want to just make a black and white copy, or print black and white, if one of the color cartridges is empty the whole machine shuts down until you get the new color cartridge you really don't need. Ha ha! I'm sure some VP of marketing got a bonus for this idea.
