Do not waste your time

Summary: Epson have a connectivity issue with the BT modem/ wifi, (and one other modem, can't remember the name sorry), and it most certainly applies to this product. The issue resolves around the channel of the router/ wifi, usually 1 or 11 as default - Epson finally admitted this needs to be at 5 or 6.
Summary: Had this printer for 1 year and 10 months and it has been a problem from early on. Here is a list of what I have experienced...... Often states paper jammed when it isn't. When scanning, it crops top and a side edge of scan, making the scan a different size from the item being scanned.
Summary: This printer has lasted less than 17 months. Just suddenly started to turn itself off before its finished starting up. So only lasted a few months after guarantees out. It has only been used in a home environment. Therefore not a good buy
Summary: The printer is still within its warranty period so at least I have not wasted the printer cost. However, I have wasted a lot of time which was spent on trying to make it work, the hassle of needing to send it back and I'm out of pocket on tens of pounds spent on print cartridges. Approx.

Summary: Have always been a loyal HP fan. And, I confess, usually bought at the cheaper end of the range ie £40-£50. But I run a bit of home office these days, plus REALLY like to print good colour photos at home, so decided to splash out.
Summary: I`ve had various printers of different makes and this has to be at the top for the worst. Just putting the paper in is a nightmare and I don`t do photo`s but use lots of gloss paper and the photo tray gets in the way. Then the noise it makes is unbelieveable.
Summary: Do not buy this printer. I like you read the reviews thinking I was going to get a great printer to replace my Epson R320 Photo that has given me years of service with relatively little problems. So when I received this printer I thought yet more years of trouble free printing.
Summary: Bought this as a replacement to my Epson R285 cause its waste ink tank had filled up preventing me from using it. I now wish I hadn't bothered. I have had no end of trouble trying to print double sided 190gsm photo paper.
Summary: I purchased this from Amazon to replace an earlier failing Epson which had given me good service, just as those Epsons before had. The new printer worked well for a week or so, then started to need constant and repeated inkhead cleaning and nozzle checks. I was replacing inks like nobody's business.
