INK prices are OUTRAGEOUSLY EXPENSIVE. A new printer cost less.
11 July 2012
Summary: Pros: - Convenient WiFi. - Compact, Very good and clear design. Cons: - Can buy a NEW printer for the price of color INK (not including Black). - INK prices are Outrageous. Epson sells only the primary colors for just under $50.00 dollars- Black cost extra $18.00 to $20.00 dollars. OUTRAGEOUS. - Cartridges are smaller with less INK.
Summary: This printer does a good job for it's price, but be VERY careful on buying ink, as this printer will not accept the high volume inks, they fit just fine, but the printer just says undetectable ink, so a high volume 3 pack was almost the cost of the printer, asd since it was installed, I had to throw it away. So lessoned learned, cheap printers make you buy lots of ink. they get your money one way or another.
Summary: I am a novice so didn't know wireless meant you had to have wireless service. I don't so cant use it as a printer. I have made lots of copies but am told the ink will be expensive and that's not good news. I was stressed buying this and computer...was a big debt for me and my budget but wheelchair had been down 5 months and couldn't get to library computer.
Epson Stylus NX430 doesn't work with our HP computer
24 April 2012
Summary: We cannot get this printer to work with our HP computer, but it works with our Mac. I would give it 5 stars if we just had a Mac. The seller initially said we could not return it. They said we need to contact Epson first. I think Epson might take it back.

Summary: Just hooked it up today; initial thoughts. "Small?" At least 30% larger than the HP it replaces. Noise -- a little noisier than the old HP. When setting up "language," those with old, fat fingers be very careful!! I slipped and made it FRENCH -- and you have to go up to the web to get instructions to undo that -- but you can only get to the web page AFTER you load the software CD.
Summary: I bought this printer not even a month ago, I had to print out 17 pages (black & white) and already it says my black printer ink needs to be replaced, prior to this I hardly printed anything at all. I am having a horrible time scanning 35 mm photos as the ratio is horribly off-makes everyone look as if they've gained 20 pounds in every single picture, just spent 2 hrs trying to find a way to set the ratio & it's nowhere to be found, why it slightly stretches photos out I...
poor support, won't print black if color ink is low
30 March 2012
Summary: the negatives first: - Big ink eater. - Awful support. - Won't print anything when color is low I am unable to print a simple form in black ink - just because the red-yellow-blue color inks are low. All I want to do is select "temporarily disable color printing" - which is a neat option for when the color ink is low, and all you need is black. But the manual and directions on the screen, online and on the printer are maddeningly incomplete.
Summary: "At fifty-nine-ninety-nine from Of**ce D**ot, this little printer is a good value, but a bit short on features (ya get what ya pay for...). It was an easy install on 2 Macbooks running Leopard, and pretty straightforward on my iMac running Snow Leopard. It took a full 2 hours to get my Mac Mini, running Lion, set up with the drivers. Just Work! at it. Very convenient to print from the iPad 2 (ios 5.01).
