Summary: This is a very good printer. I bought it because I need to print a lot of documents for my job and I thought this printer would be a good one since I am familiar with the Epson brand. I would highly recommend this product.
Summary: i should state upfront that the reason i bought this printer is because i already owned one. my nephew needed a printer and i have a love/hate (mostly hate) thing going with this printer. but it can be turned into a great printer. understand that the printer as sold is a pos in the ink cartridge department. it does have four cartridges, which i consider superior to multiple colors in one tiny cartridge. and i believe a home printer should cost less than $50.
Summary: You can buy the generic ink on e-bay which is much cheaper. I have tried other brand of printers and I found Epson is easier to used. I was very happy that Epson ink can be used on other brand of Epson printer. This was great for me because my old one broke and discontinue. I was so worry that I would have to toss the ink away. I did research and it turn out ink can be used with other Epson printer. This is why I love and will only buy Epson Printer.
Summary: Really nice (and fast) printing for both text and pictures. Ink gets quite expensive if you use Epson Inks. For 3-4 years now I have been using replacment cartridges from "InkFactory.com", that "auto-reset" when they reach about 10% - 20% full. I get much much better "milage" from my ink because it uses "all" the ink in the cartridge. You just have to monitor your printouts because when a cartridge runs out of ink it will only be noticeable in the printed page.
