Summary: This printer has frustrated me more than almost anything else I can think of. While admittedly, it usually prints what I want printed, anything with color in has light bars/streaks across it. And, the WORST feature of this printer is that it flat out refuses to print anything if it gets the notion that any of the ink cartridges is low. And YOU GET NO ADVANCE WARNING. Aside from that, the scanner works very well. I have used it a lot and have been quite happy with it.
Summary: I purchased my Epson CX7000F at a discount when a OfficeMax was closing. It a good thing becasue if i would have paid full price i would have really been angry to know how quickly the ink runs out. That is not the most frustrating part. That would be that you can't print in black ink only if any of the other cartridges are empty. Good thing i dont print much becasue i would have thrown this peice of junk in the trash already. I do not recommend purchasing this printer.
Summary: I purchased this printer from Office Max and have regretted it ever since. Epson should be ashamed for not pulling it from the market immediately. This printer somehow manages to internally vaporize ink. Once the printer is out of ink it will not do ANYTHING! It will not scan or fax or function at all until you replace all of the cartridges. Don't even consider buying one of these!
Never Ever Buy Epson Printer Please, Let It Be Dying!

Summary: Trust me, I know how trick the Epson company used in printer. They design driver with ink level decreasing since your first installing. If you're unfortunate to reinstall ink cartridge when you encounter erro message again and again, your cartridge would not give mercy to decrease down to lower level again and again. It's really a bad experience I've ever met.
Summary: I got Brand new INKs original Epson. Y replace all of them, Black and all the Color. CLeaned up the Header about 6 times cause it never worked and after that, i have to change AGAIN the blue color, and the rest are at 50%. I sent an Email to Epson Complaining about this situation. Lets see what do they answer. this Might be the last time in my life that i buy a Epson Product. My last hope is their Costumer Service, if they response in a good way, i could stay with them.
Summary: I've had this printer for almost two years now, and I've used it off and on since. Just today, however, it whined for me to replace the cyan cartridge even though I was trying to copy a black and white paper. After several attempts to to get around the persistent whinging by pressing "Cancel", "Setup", etc., I finally looked on Epson's website to see what was going on. Reading the FAQ for this printer revealed quite surprising information.
Summary: If I could rate this negative stars I would. Absolutely the worst printer/piece of office equipment I've EVER owned or worked with (and I've worked with a lot). 1) It either will not print or it jams. I'd say my jam to print ration is 50:1. Staggeringly awful odds when the main function of a printer is to, you know, print. This is by far my biggest gripe, as it is not even performing its most basic of functions. 2) ...if it even responds at all.
Summary: I got this printer for free when I bought a new laptop. It seemed like an excellent deal-getting it for free. NOT SO! I have to replace the ink cartridges CONSTANTLY (all FOUR of them even though I almost never print in color). I spend so much in ink cartridges that I'm going to buy a whole new printer and am confident that I will SAVE money doing so.
Worst printer ever! I have a hard time even giving it ONE star!

Summary: I've had this printer for a little less than a year. Did not like it from about week 2. It only faxes when it feels like it. Now it won't even print (I researched on the web and saw numerous people with the same problem). I says there is a paper jam-yet no paper stuck in it! The cover for copying falls off on a regular basis. The ink runs out constantly and is pricey! Epson customer service sucks! I will NEVER buy another Epson!
Summary: Wow, I am very glad I am not the only one having problems with this. For starters, they have the wrong drivers on the website for this printer. Go straight to Gutenprint. Just google it. Had to wait through 2 hours customer service with someone I couldn't understand from epson to be told it was a problem with my operating system (mac).
