Summary: This is the third one of these I have had and ordered it to try to use some of the inks I had left from my last one. Sadly this didn't work either and after long protracted communications with the seller I had to send it back for a refund.
Summary: Please be warned do not buy this printer !! it will jam your paperwork, the head will need cleaning every 8-10 pages, if you want to print photos it is even worse. I had to give this 1 star because that is the minimum - even 1 star is being kind to this printer !! as you can tell I am very unhappy with the product, 5 months old an already "repaired" twice, and still does not work.
Summary: I bought this item based on very positive reviews and was impressed at how cheap it was, for what appeared to be a good, modern colour printer, which has WIFI. In the few months that I have had this, it has been out of action most of the time for one reason or another. I have had to change most of the cartridges at least once in six months- on extremely rare usage, and each time a colour cartridge goes, the printer refuses to operate- so you cannot print even if you only...
Summary: Having used HP printers in my home studio-office for the last ten years without a hitch, I opted to try an Epson when my last HP suddenly broke down after two years for no conceivable reason. Reviews on Amazon seemed generally good, and I thought I would give it a go - for light home use, how wrong can you go, I wondered. The BX305FW was simple enough to install, but good lord, the trouble I've had with it since then....
Summary: Arrived on time, well packaged & that's where the good news stops. The fax option takes up a large amount of its talent & yet is obsolete. But the printing is by far the worse I've ever seen. To me, it seems alot of the thought & money was spent in the fax option & then no time or real effort to produce good printing quality. Even after head alignment & nozzle cleaning the banding and colour was just awful.
Summary: I bought this printer in mid April 2012 & to date (mid May) it is still not working properly. I have spent money/time phoning/emailing Epson with little luck - every time they solve one problem this causes another. I have resigned myself (& told Epson) to not having the Wireless or Fax working as the printer is now working with a USB connection printing text, photographs & scanning fine. Epson service is appalling. Do not buy this product.
Summary: My advice to anyone looking for a new printer is not to buy this one. It was a big mistake. The printer will tell you there's a paper jam when it contains no paper. It will tell you the ink cartridges are empty just after you put new ones in and it is slow and noisy. Do not buy this printer.
Summary: i bought this printer from pc world (first mistake) it was fine for 3 months not used much ink very expensive then all of a suden for no reason it developed a scanner fault when turning on and wiped all setting on it when i tried finding the wireless net work it did find it bare in mind its right next to the router and i have 6 over wifi product that have no problem then when i turned it off and back on again it makes a loud noise and when let u go any further and says...
Summary: Ich bin sehr enttäuscht von Amazon. In der Beschreibung steht, dass der Drucker OHP Folien drucken kann. Nachdem ich mit Epson kontakt aufgenommen habe, weil es nicht fuktioniert hat, habe ich erfahren dass dieser Drucker (Office BX 305 FW) überhaupt KEINE Folien drucken kann. Also ACHTUNG, die Beschreibung von Amazon ist schlichtweg falsch. Ansich ist der Drucker ganz ok.
