Summary: I've used quite a few printers in my time and the quality of this one has been by far the best. Both the scanning and printing of this printer are pretty good in my opinion, in particular the scanner. I'm often having to scan pencil sketches in to my PC and have gotten used to having to go over them all in a fine liner. However, with this printer this is no longer the case.
Summary: Multifunction Printer?? That's a laugh! I've had the DX 6000 for a while now and although I hardly use it it's not really a printer at all it's only any good as a photocopier! it copies pictures and text alright, but if you try'n print out a page from your computer it fails to pick up the light coloured inks which in most cases happens to be the prices! and the amount of ink it uses is ridiculace.
Do not buy this printer if you don't want lots of hassle

Summary: Hello, I'm normally too busy to write reviews but I decided to offer this review in order to spear hassle and waste of money and time to anyone who is considering buying this printer. I had it for two years and in the beginning it was fine. It did the job. The most problematic area is the ink cartridge. It won't just accept one colour that has gone down, but it won't register that you've put a new cartage in unless you change the rest 3 colours.
Summary: I wanted just a general purpose ink jet to perform infrequent printing. Fits my needs since I dont expect a budget multifunction machine to print 1000's of full colour photos on a single set of cartridges. Ink jets use ink, live with it. In 18 months, I'm on my second set of cartridges nad the device works as required, not too noisy and I love the fact I can use it as a photocopier and the card reader comes in very handy too.
Summary: I have to say that when I read reviews it always winds me up when there are obviously finicky people reviewing them that like to moan about everything. However I have to say - I'm not usually one to moan but this printer has been a complete drain on financies AND caused no end of frustration. For starters I'm a computer programmer - so I know about computers so it's not that I've set it up incorrectly...
Summary: i do not know what all the wingeing is about i have had this printer for 8 months yes it does use ink but compared to the lexmark it does not use as much, basicly you get what you pay for i bought this as a basic printer scanner and thats what i got can't fault it for what i payed If you want more from a printer then pay the price and stop whingeing.
Summary: If all you need is an easy to operate printer/scanner/colour copier, then look no further than Epson's excellent DX6000. There may be better printers, faster scanners and more accurate photo-copiers on the market, but I defy you to find a better one for around £60! I can also confirm that Epson are one of the few machines that take compatible cartridges (around half to two thirds of the price of the genuine article) and the use of these won't necesarily invalidate the...
