Summary: I've had this printer for a long time and have much to say, but will keep it simple. If you are a photographer like me, over time you will be disappointed with this printer. It starts out great, but quickly fades. It scans well, copies well and prints well.
Summary: This worked fine for about two years. But then it started not detecting the ink cartridge and would require me to reinsert the cartridges. Then recently he print head got clogged to the point where all the colors had streaks. When I tried the print head cleaning it did not improve.
No drivers for new mac OS 10.5 on non-intel machines!
26 August 2008
Summary: I have a G5 mac that worked fine with the printer using OS 10.3. I just upgraded to the new Leopard OS 10.5 and now the cx8400 won't print at all. It just keeps spitting out sheet after sheet of blank paper till the bin is empty!
Summary: The ink units for epson printers get smaller with each generation. The color ink for this printer will last for only about 20 pages! That is 20 pages of color print for 3 units of about $15 apiece- that is a rip off of major size. The picture quality is great.
