Summary: This printer did a good job of printing photos, scanning and copying for about six months. Then it received a paper jam error with NO paper inside. Did the basic fixes as recommended from various forums such as blowing compressed air on the sensor, trying new paper and turning the printer upside down and gently shaking with no result.
Summary: It suck badly. Every week or so the print quality goes to hell. There are blank lines across the letters, font 5+, cause it didn't print that part. So you need to clean the nozzel and realign the headers. Doing the clean and realignment kill ink levels! I don't even use this printer that often! I use it like once a month or sporatically.
Summary: The Epson Stylus CX7800 All in One Inkjet Printer we just purchased doesn't work right. It leaves black lines on the paper. The seller was very dishonest. When you copy a photo it won't print black ink. It turns out purple, & all sorts of other colors.It's not cycling properly.It also leaves black splotches on the copies.I rate this at very,very poor. We went through Ebay with everything. Seller refused to refund us the full amount, till we got ebay involved.
CX7800 - overpriced with some serious performance problems

Summary: I am presently looking for a printer to replace the CX7800 and am appalled to see what they are presently selling for....I got mine at Sam's for $69.99 about 3 or 4 years ago. I liked the separate ink tanks because my grandchildren love to print stuff so I use lots of ink. Right out of the box it refused to print a whole page - would print 1/4 or 1/2, then cut off the rest. Lots of banding problems, scanned documents have a big black bar right down the middle.
Summary: I've had this printer fro 2.5 years and, if I could, I would throw it out the window. Every time I try to print it makes weird noises and refuses to print. When it finally does print it leaves huge smudges of ink all over the paper so that you have to print again, wasting time, money, ink, and paper. When it does print, it prints ok, but still has blotches on the paper. DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER, IT IS SUCH A WASTE!!
Summary: I have found that this printer gets paper jams quite often. Then it jams and you get a code for service. Clearing the jam does not help when you get the service code. Have not had the copier very long. There have also been other print problems (partial characters printed, partial color or more than one color on characters. I had another Epsen printer (a model before this one) and it had exactly the same problems.
Unreliable, lots of crashes, lousy product support.

Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER UNLESS YOU LOVE MISERY. I bought my first CX7800 a year ago. It never worked properly. It frequently crashed in mid-task. The scanner was especially problematic, it never printed full-page color at any resolution without crashing in midstream. I wrestled with Epson Tech Support for 9 months. I did everything they told me to do, including replacing both the USB cable and my USB ports.
Summary: My first Epson Stylus the print heads went out 2 weeks before the warranty ran out (fortunately for me). Tech Support (my dime) was real helpful, sent me out a replacement Fed Ex and they didn't want the old one returned to them. Because I only had a couple of weeks on the warranty, they explained that the warranty on the replacement would only be good for 30 days and they suggested I buy an extended warranty for $25, which I did.
Summary: I bought one of these in March '06, and it was dead by August. The replacement that the store gave me in August died in December. The store no longer sells the printer, so I got a refund. The quality of the prints was fine, but the problem was that the paper would not feed through the machine. It would pull the paper through on one side but not the other, resulting in constant paper jams. Extremely frustrating.
