1 Year Has Not Broken & That's The ONLY Good Thing

Summary: I have had this unit for a year, got it for $50 and it has not broken yet so that is good. However, the ink is a rip off. $12 and about 12 pages for that price. Ditto the complaint that once you are out of any ink, it won't let you print anything B & W. Really annoying.
Summary: I feel that to get the most out of this printer you must modify the install settings, turn on fast printing and adjust the quality to what you need. I installed inkowl refillable cartridges and it has saved me a fortune as epson cartridges are very expensive.
Summary: - Needs ink constantly - Needs to have its nozzles cleaned every time I use it. - Won't print black if I'm missing color ink. Or something -- won't do a nozzle clean anyway. I put it on greyscale and that seemed to work for printing. - Feeds multiple pages or doesn't recognize you have paper loaded.
Summary: As another reviewer did, I bought this printer on sale at Fry's for $25 bucks. I needed a cheap printer for work because I did not want to walk over to a different room every time I printed something. I was looking at the cheapest Canon and Lexmark as well. The Epson has a scanner, so I got it.
Summary: I have an Epson NX430 which is great. The Epson NX130 is far from great - it a total money eater. It won't print properly and then I have to clean the printer heads which uses up a lot of ink. I'm having to do this all the time, sometimes several times in one go to get it working.
