Don't buy if you are mostly going to print in black.

Summary: This printer is a real rip off if you mostly print in black. It runs out of color ink, and even with a nice full black cartridge, and a print job that is only black text it will flat out refuse to print until you spend $$$ on color cartridges you don't want or need.
Summary: The functionality is fine....it's the cost of the printer cartridges that do not last any time at all. And if one of the cartridges runs low, the printer will not print at all even if you're not using that color...and there are 4 cartridges.
Summary: Based on the Amazon reviews, I ordered this printer...and I have been so disappointed. First, it is a very noisy printer. (I use Brothers elsewhere in the house and that's my comparison.) Second, I was never able to install it wirelessly. Finally, it jams constantly.
Summary: Okay, I want to make a couple of points for anyone considering buying this printer. The printer works about as well as you could expect for the price, though it constantly runs out of ink with only moderate use, even the so-called high capacity black ink cartridge - by the way, in the printer...
Summary: We've had this printer for over a year, and this thing decides when it wants to work. As of right now, we have no been able to use the wireless print function for over a month. I have a Macbook and my boyfriend's laptop operates on Windows.
Summary: This printer is a huge disappointment. I've had numerous Epson products over the last 20 years and this is a real low point. The quality is very poor and the promised performance is a myth. The printer is almost totally made of plastic. It is flimsy and lacks s feel of substance.
Summary: I have had so many printers over the years, I have lost count. Expensive.. to inexpensive. And this one is just a POS. Seriously. I do enjoy the scanner feature, it's nice to make copies as well. But I have NEVER had a printer that jammed so often. It's a nightmare.
Summary: First, Epson lies: you may only need to replace the ink color cartridge that's empty, but regardless of color, it will not print if it reads ANY cartridge as empty. Even if you need only to print black; if, for example, yellow is empty, it won't print.
