Summary: This is a great printer. We have another one just like it. It arrived quickly and in "like new" condition. Set up was easy. The USB cable supplied with it didn't work. When we switched it for a new cable, it worked fine. Prints perfectly.
Summary: Please ignore all the reviews complaining about ink and ink priming. Some people never do read the info included with the gadgets they buy... These printers are shipped with a full set of cartridges, so you can set them up... But these printers do have hoses that have to get filled with ink, The First Time They Are Used. This takes a significant amount of ink... But once the printer hoses are primed, they never have to be again...
Summary: I have already evaluated the product I received. All ink cartridges were empty not full as indicated in the advertisement. Except for delays in indicating the level of ink, the printer works well. I bought this one to replace my original CX 8400 because it burned out. I find that this predator is a stout performer and serves my purposes well. That is why I chose to replace it with the same model as I had originally.
Summary: everything works as promised but the ink that is supplied with the unit is a joke. I havn't printed 25 sheets (mostly all b/w) and indicator for ink levels shows almost empty at this time. I find out now to purchase new ink will cost almost as much as I paid for the printer. I hope when I order new ink they hold more ink then was supplied with the printer.
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: We have owned a few all in ones and this one is the best. Our old one would print fuzzy the first time you printed even if you had just printed the day before. The pictures come out great. If you only use it rarely then the ink may dry up but I have not had that problem yet. My only complaint is that the paper does not like to be put in sometimes but once it does it rarely has a misfeed (our old one miss fed if you put in more than 5 sheets.
Excellent Print Quality but yes, it does drink ink

Summary: The Good: Print Quality! I have been very surprised and impressed with the photo print quality of this printer. If you use the proper paper, you really CAN get lab-comparable results! I dabble in some photography and belong to some clubs here and there, some of which have ongoing competitions.
