Summary: I was shopping between the Epson Stylus 625 and an HP 3050. I've always had HPs so I thought I'd make a switch to see if Epson could be better after my last HP of 5 years finally broke down. Reviews for both products were similar in their highs and lows but the Epson stood out for two reasons: 1) The color ink is separated into three cartridges, so you don't have to spend a lot of money on the entire color cartridge if you happen to print with a lot blue inks, you can...
Summary: Awesome printer for the money, and Epson ink cartridges are among the cheapest. Not great for photos, but super fast, and super easy to set up wireless printing. On OS X Lion it was as easy as, connecting the printer to wireless network, and it automatically downloads the driver and utilities.
Great home printer but setup software has issues...

Summary: If you are looking for a basic home printer that will print the kids homework assignments, pictures, and don't need a lot of the heavy-duty processing power that you expect from your printer at work, this is an excellent cost-effective choice. It detects and connects easily to home wireless networks -- you would think this would be a given but my last home printer ...
Summary: I just got the printer this afternoon and spent around 1 hour to make it work in both of my laptops(one is Win7 Home SP1 and the other is Mac OS X). And here is the problem list and the workaround: 1. I can not install the software without errors. I tried to install the software in my windows laptop(Win7 Home Premier SP1), and two tries, two failure.
Summary: This printer replaced an HP Photosmart All-in-One printer that was only a few months old which is now in the trash. I'm happy to say this printer actually works right out of the box and does what Epson says it does. I've only had the printer for a couple of days so far and haven't tested all of the features as of yet, I will be updating this review as certain features are tested.
Summary: This seems to be a very nice printer for limited home use. I would buy it again and recommend it, despite some serious software problems I encountered. Pros: Scans, copies and prints both sides of the paper, if you want. Excellent print and glossy photo quality; scanner provides 24 bit color resolution in the 250 dpi range (up to 17 MB for 8.5 x 11 inch sheet, before compaction); USB or wireless/wired network capability with standby power usage of only about 4 watts.
Great, compact all in one - as long as it installs.

Summary: Print! 2 sided? OK, not really. If this is 2-sided printing, then ANY printer can print 2 sided. How does this machine print on both sides, you ask? First, it prints the first page. Then it pops open a little window telling you to take the paper that just printed, rotate it 180 degrees, and put it back into the paper tray. Then click "resume." Double sided...yes. "Automatic 2 sided printing?" That's called false advertising.
Summary: This is more of an FYI and not a review. I gave it 4/5 stars from the store demo I watched. I mostly got it for the wireless network scanning. So when I bought it, I tried to set it up without ink. NO good. So I contact Epson. Turns out that the printer will not operate for any feature if the ink is not installed or even worse, if the ink is installed but empty!
Summary: First, I like Epson printers. I have owned at least 5 models in recent years. My last printer was an Epson Workforce 610. I like the "Amazon" price of the printer very much. Much cheaper than Epson Home. I like the size of this printer over the 610 also. I also like the paper loading tray over the previous model(s). The paper is "hidden" in a tray on the bottom rather than loading upright from the rear. Print cartridges can be found cheaper on Amazon.
