Summary: TOTAL RIP-OFF. I PRINTED FOUR SHEETS OF PAPER IN 2 MONTHS (I RARELY PRINT ANYTHING) AND 2 OF THE COLOR CARTRIAGES WHERE OUT AND IT WON'T PRINT UNTIL YOU REPLACE THE CARTRIAGE(S) EVEN THOUGH THE BLACK WAS FULL. BEWARE!! YOU CAN SPEND A FORTUNE IN INK 'CAUSE SOMETIMES YOU MAY MAKE A MISTAKE OR FOR A NUMBER OF OTHER REASON HAVE TO REPRINT AND FIND OUT YOUR TO LOW ON YELLOW ECT... NOW YOU GOT ANOTHER PROBLEM THAT COST MONEY TO SOLVE.
They are legitimately trying to steal from you with this printer

Summary: I don't understand if Epson thought that consumers would be really pleased with their system of ink replacement, or maybe just hoped that they could get away with literally stealing from you for as long as possible. Maybe somewhere a very sad, begrudging computer engineer is pounding his head on his desk after his management tells him: "We've decided you should make it use a little bit of color ink for every black and white page, because we think this will allow us to...
Summary: Well, the printer/scanner itself is great, but OH MY GOD, how does it go through ink just sitting there? I have a single ream of paper still half full and i have replaces every ink cartridge TWICE!! I have not printed ONE SINGLE picture with it in over 8 mths either. DON'T BUY IT!!!!! Ink will cost you arms and legs!
Summary: i HAVE TO AGREE with eventing that was said before me. I only print maybe 20-25 pages a year and I have to replace the ink every year. I have never seen any printer use so much ink. The printers I have in the past last years without replacing the ink. The printer quality is no better than another printer. I would not buy this product. The only thing I have to say that good about this one is the scan works.
Summary: I'll add myself to the list of unhappy customers. This printer won't allow you to print unless you have all cartridges loaded. Want to print just black & white and your cyan is out? too bad. won't do it. Ok so maybe you never print color, you should be able to print black & white forever. wrong. A little bit of color is used to print even if it's just black & white. It's a shame because i like Epson printers. But they just lost a customer forever.
