Summary: I ordered this thinking used good I expect the thing to work good my mistake a printer this old will always have issues. I kept getting error after error I figured a few of them out the first was scanner error tried to find a solution found the lock unlock toggle has to be wiggled back and forth.
Summary: Note: Seller shipped item quickly and it was as described -- I knew what I was getting. Seller is good. The customer for whom I bought this was adamant about having this exact device. She had a previous printer just like it, had the money, and said "I don't want to learn anything new.
Summary: Some five or six years ago or more I acquired this Epson RX500 Printer. Being somewhat naive, I was influenced by their commercials touting "colorfast ink."

Summary: I've owned this multi-function for about two years. Negatives: tremendous ink consumption, expensive epson cartidges, poor function knock-of cartridges, poor quality print in color and B/W, copy function produces yellow copies after much time, paper and document feed often miss-feed (terrible for...
Summary: I have owned this printer for several years but have only recently come to the realization that thing uses excessive ink. I know that it is not using that much ink to print the one black and white sheet per day that I have been printing.
Summary: I've had this printer for a few years now and have never had any luck with it. I've tried EPSON ink and generic ink. Both are terrible and expensive. I can't get a decent photo - never have. I have done every maintenance trick and tool available, and I cannot get it to print text decently.
