When it works its great... WHEN it works.

Summary: This machine is the most frustrating piece of equipment Ive ever owned. Ive had it for over a year and the thing just randomly doesn't like to feed paper or scan despite doing it a moment before. Not to mention that it no longer likes to print any documents from any application like photoshop or illustrator and the card reader randomly shuts off causing any memory cards in there to give off improper device removal errors.
Summary: This printer has never worked correctly from the time of purchase. I bought it in 2005 and have had nothing but continuous issues. The print nozzles get stuck all of the time - I have had problems where I have cleaned the nozzles replaced the ink and it will go through the motions of printing, but then the paper comes out with no ink. I don't even use it that frequently. Now, the it will not feed paper.
Summary: The negative scanner will chop photos randomly, if it scans them at all. Usually it won't recognize that there is anything on the scanner at all and when switched to normal mode it scans part of the negative tray...lovely. I had some of these same issues with an Epson flatbed/negative scanner years ago, seems like they're sending out the same crappy and bugged software. I think this will be the last Epson product I own.
Summary: I will never buy another Epson printer as long as I live. The printer has a mind of it's own and tells you when it's "out of ink" even when the ink cartridge is half-full and won't let you print anything else until you replace it... and the ink cartridges are EXPENSIVE! If that weren't bad enough, our printer flat out STOPPED WORKING after 18 months of use!!!
Summary: While this printer does do a beautiful job printing in vivid color, the paper feed is a nightmare. This is my 3rd replacement or refurbished printer Epson support has sent me. All have this problem!!! The first one I purchased at Costco and after a week or so of printing, it pulled near 25 sheets at once and broke something. The 2nd replacement did the same. This 3rd one has me SEEING RED as it too is messing up on paper feed and alignment.
Summary: This is an absolute piece of junk. Do not buy. I usually have high tolerances for non-perfect equipment but this is going way too far. My biggest complaint? YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING WITHOUT ALL INKS BEING AVAILABLE! This doesn't sound bad initially since its a printer and all but realize this means you can't print in B&W only if you're out of color. You can't print only in blues if the red is out. You can't do anything.
Summary: I did a great deal of research approximately 2 years ago when I bought this printer, and at the time, I thought I'd made a good decision, especially considering I paid $320.00. I was getting it for my fiancée's greeting card program, as she loves to design and print cards for special events in our families and at our church (birthdays, anniversaries, sympathy, also flyers, business cards, address labels, etc.
Summary: This is a nightmare! It won't DO ANYTHING WITHOUT INK. I mean, it won't SCAN. The ink is sooo expensive. It is a HOG! Constant error messages regarding ink. The black ink tank alone was $20.75 (multiply that by 5 for all the cartridges). Don't buy this printer. Go with HP, or something else, anything else!
Summary: This is my third RX620. My first two LCD panels went out while it was still under warranty thank goodness. It was a very painful experience at the time but now I am having new and more frustrating problems. I would have to say that I was mostly pleased with the prints with my PC but I have switched over to a Mac and now my prints are just plain junk.
Summary: Don't waste your money on this piece of junk. The print heads on mine are clogged and I have gone through several sets of ink cartridges while running the "clean heads" cycle over and over as instructed by Epson Technical Support. As other reviewers have noted, this printer is an ink hog. The short time it actually worked it went through the ink cartridges like they were nothing.
