Summary: We have previously owned other printers and prefer the Epson. Memory cards are placed directly into the printer and can be viewed without ever connecting to the computer. Copying and scanning make this printer hard to beat. It's hard to tell which is an original. I've never counted pages copied but I know I can trust my printer to get the most out of the ink purchased.
Summary: I've had an HP Officejet that I was using and got tired of smudged ink. Went looking for an Epson because of the type of ink they provide. Ran across this company that does Epson with a Continuous Ink Supply installed. Greatest purchase I ever made. Excellent photo quality printing on photo paper. Great color on plain paper. NO smudging. Vivid color on iron on T-shirt transfers. Best of all . . .
Summary: I set my printer defaults to print with black ink only. Funny thing is all of my color cartridges ran out at the same time as my black ink. Strange that I never printed a page in color yet I ran out of ink. I bought more black thinking if I print only in black it would work. NOPE ALL INK NEEDS TO BE AVAILABLE! even if only printing text or b&w. Truth be told, the printer with it's first set of ink is now cheaper than buying a full set of new ink cartridges.
Summary: With the money you'll spend in toner within the first year you could buy a high end laser printer and get toner cheap on e-bay. Everytime my wife calls me to pick up toner on the way home from work, my shoulders tense up.
Summary: The printing was great! Photos were spectacular! -But- It was so noisy you could hear it print throughout the whole house. After Printing about 15 pages, (mostly black& White) the cartridges showed half empty. It wastes more ink starting up than printing. The store would take it back IF I replaced all the ink cartridges, more than half the price of the printer. I contacted EPSON, no response until almost a month a half after I bought it.
