Summary: I had to pay a technician to set up the wireless for me after wasting a day trying to do it myself. The ink replacements are extremely over priced, it's cheaper to buy a new printer !. I wish I never wasted my money on it.
Summary: Started off great, but now is causing me grief! I have just finished work on my latest Album (I am a band) and just before my first run of CD were due to be printed the black ink blocked up. SO I changed the colour scheme of the album cover. NOW the light cyan has blocked as well! I have used an entire set of ink cartridges trying to unblock it, NOT A CHEAP THING TO DO!!!!! This printer is stalling the release of my album!!!! NOT HAPPY!
"Looks great, quite quick and quality print on photos....when it's working..."

Summary: Haviing owned Epson printers previously I expected the same reliability I had experienced with previous models when purchasing the TX700W. I've been sorely disappointed. The printer started out well and I was really pleased with print quality and speed - however all too soon the nozzle blockages became a regular occurrence.
Pros: Great design, good quality photo prints
Cons: Constant nozzle blockages, greedy ink consumption and expensive ink
Summary: Avoid this printer, its rubbish. The ink cartridges are wayyy over priced, and half the time the printer doesnt even recognise them!!!! The wireless function is utter rubbish too. Will not be buying a printer from epson ever again after this fiasco.
Summary: Terrible. I have had it now for nearly 12 months, and had constant problems where it cannot pick up a4 photo paper from out of the tray. If you try and "help" it by pushing the paper forward in the tray with your fingers, you might find that it works 1/5 times. Do it for a few prints and you will take the skin off your knuckles doing this however. On the rare occasions you can get it to print on this photo paper, it does a good job as far as print quality goes.
Pros: excellent scanner
Cons: Paper feed is rubbish, cannot feed A4 photo paper. Avoid this absolute rubbish printer like the plague
