Summary: I found this on sale at another retailer and thought it was a great buy. Under $50 for a printer and a scanner sounded too good to be true. It is. It won't take any ink other than the brand specific due to a microchip on the ink cartridges themselves. Because of this, you have to pay almost another $50 every time it runs out of ink - which is a lot. I've run out of ink after as little as 30 pages being printed.
Summary: I wish I had never bothered to get this printer. I rarely print at home but when I do, it's a overwhelming pain in the rear. If it's not the ink levels (I got a whopping 50 total pages out this last set), it's the paper. Occasionally the printer will decide to grab every single sheet in the loader and attempts to shove it through at once.
Summary: This is the absolute worst piece of technology I've ever purchased, and it has absolutely no redeeming qualities. It's so bad, in fact, that I will never, ever purchase another Epson product and will strive to make it known to all friends and family to never, ever buy any Epson products. I seriously cannot believe that a major printer manufacturer made this hunk of junk.
I'd rather draw what I need printed before using this.

Summary: I purchased this item for $30 on a price drop at target. I am glad to not have paid full price. It broke down on me after replacing ink cartridges. Customer service could not get it to work and sent me a new one. New one broke down for the same reason. Wireless connection is terrible. It is also hard to connect initially to your wifi. I wouldn't buy this for a dollar.
Summary: This would be a really good product if it worked. The scanner is nice but I have problems with the ink cartridges. There are 4 cartridges and they are really hard to take out and replace. It also seems like they don't work unless you put new ones in all at the same time. You think it'd be cheaper having 4 cartridges and just being able to replace 1 at a time when you need to but that's not the case.
Summary: Great printer! I always love Epson printers and this one was perfect and a great price. This was a new printer unopened product and set up was a breeze with my new MacAir. Automatic download of software and worked immediately. Comparable to other printers of this caliber with good clear photo quality printing. at $69 it is a great price for what would be an expensive investment if bought at a retail store. Also it was delivered within 3 days. Excellent turn around time.
Summary: I'm ready to have an Office Space moment with this printer. There is not one redeeming quality to this crappy printer. You need all ink cartridges to print, cyan, magenta, etc. even if you are trying to print in black ink only. The wireless printing functionality is a joke- NEVER works. Print quality sucks. It's super slow to print stuff out.
Summary: I should have known when I picked up this little gem at Target for 30 bucks on sale that it would be junk. But I needed a printer and I was short on cash. My last printer was a brother and it lasted 12 years! I have used 50 or so different printers over the last five years so I have a frame of reference, and I knew better. All went well in the beginning. It seemed like a great printer. Then we had to get another PC.
Summary: My sis is going to college and needed a printer. She bought an Epson Stylus NX230. Pros: The scanner is kinda slow and medium definition, but it seems to work ok when the printer doesn't get confused and make the lights flash. Cons: It'll print about a dozen pages and then you have to replace the ink cartridges. If you get the super expensive cartridges you might get two dozen pages. You constantly have to run the cleaner to get rid of the stripes.
Summary: This is a horrible printer. The ink cartridges are ridiculously expensive, and they don't last very long, even with quality paper. You're supposed to be able to replace one color at a time, but if you replace one cartridge, the printer suddenly doesn't recognize any of the others, and you have to replace the others, too. The alignment constantly goes off and the nozzles get clogged, and need to be cleaned constantly (wasting even more ink).
