Excerpt: This is a great printer/ scanner combo, the only problem is I hardly ever get to use it. You need 4 ink cartridges for it run (cyan, magenta, yellow, and of course black) and if one cartridge runs out of ink the machine will not work at all. So your constantly buying and replacing ink.
Can't print black and white if one of the color cartridges needs

Excerpt: The Epson printer has quality printing but if I just want to print a letter in black and white why do I need to have all the colored cartridges with ink in them. I don't print a lot of color pages but I keep running out of Yellow. Gets frusrtrating when you need to get out a letter and you have to run out to buy a color cartridge.
Excerpt: I bought the Epson Stylus cx7400 at a ok price not to costy but not so cheap. At first, the first few months it was great and it printed perfect but then it started messing up and wasting alot of ink. I don't know if you guys know but u need to purchase the ink cartriges seperate for each color in that is about twelve buck each. Its a good deal at first but its not a reliable printer at all it really satrts messing up wish it had stayed working like when i first got it.
Excerpt: I have used the Epson Stylus CX7400 for almost two years now, and have been very happy with it. I am a home user that mostly uses the printer to print rebate forms and coupons and occasional documents. I do not use the printer for photo printing: hey they have professional printing services for that, which actually work out to cheaper than printing at home. The scanner quality is pretty good even for scanning photos and such.
Excerpt: My husband and I purchased this all-in-one printer to replace my previous printer. We found that purchasing this printer was less expensive than purchasing the ink for the old printer. This printer is good because it copies, scans and prints nicely. It is much quieter than my old printers and prints faster as well. The only drawback is that if you run out of one color ink you will not be able to print anything at all until you replace the empty cartridge.
Excerpt: I use this printer to print good quality documents and photos. It comes out crisp and clean. Fast printer for the most part (documents are fast, slow if you are doing photos with high quality output). It's great that you can scan and copy as well, but can only do one page at a time. It's really easy to copy a document and to scan it. I have a hard time when I try to print on small cardstock to do invitations or cards. I also have trouble with thicker papers.
Excerpt: I was excited to get this printer because it had a scanner and copier. I actually do us these features a lot, and with this printer, it's pretty easy to do. Prints come out nice with good color, however, it uses a ton of ink. When you turn it on, it uses some ink from the cartridge to clean itself, and this must waste a lot of ink.
Excerpt: I got the Epson CX7400 printer in a package when I purchased a second computer for my kids to use. It just happened that about a week before my beloved Cannon printer stopped working because I needed a new print head. This Epson printer works okay. I am a room mom for my sons class and I am often printing 26 copies of the same document. It seems I can never get through all 26 copies without getting an error at least twice during the process.
