Excerpt: Before we had our all singing, all dancing all in one printer, we had just a cheap, bog standard printer. We kept this one when we upgraded our printer as it was still in good condition, we just wanted a better printer.
Pros: Prints black/white well, easy to use, cheap and reliable
A printer that cannot recognise ink cartridges, hmmm!

Excerpt: The Epson Stylus S21 is stylish and also compact. It is a great printer for producing professional-quality documents and it also prints photos. This printer is also incredibly cost-effective as it has four separate ink cartridges and so you only need to replace the one that's run out instead of some...
Pros: When it prints, it prints to a good quality
Cons: As reliable as an Alfa Romeo . . . without the hefty price tag .
Excerpt: Epson S21 .Absolute rubbish from day one. never again Every time power is removed it fails to recognise an ink cartridge or two or says the ink has run out. This has happened lots of time and has cost me a fortune Very unlikely I would say for the ink to coincidentally run out just at that time .
No problem in 19 months, until today! Used it yesterday!

Excerpt: I bought my printer on 21 Nov 2009 and sod's law.....it conked out today! Power to the printer, (tested with Avo) no indicating lights on! Leads tested ok, 'power on' switch feels ok, tested printer direct to mains ...zilch.
Excerpt: The worst printer I ever came across. Epson advertises that it has the cheapest ink around, but they only last ten minutes. To make matters worse you can't print in black and white if you're out of any coloured ink, and it constantly claims that genuine ink cartages are not, and this can happen even...
Excerpt: I understand that some people may have had no trouble with this printer. I have had the same problem, continuously. I am furious. When the printer worked, it was fine. It was very temporemental and stopped recognising compatible ink - even though it had worked for a month. So I bought original ink.
Excerpt: Epson Stylus S21 Sometimes, the saying 'you get what you pay for' really does ring true, and in the case of this printer, this is exactly true. Although not eye-wateringly cheap, it certainly beats the price of many printers coming in at around £40 give or take depending upon where you buy it from.
Excerpt: Did what everyone else says here. Worked for a bit and then fails to recognise its own cartridges. Rubbish product and I wished I had read the reviews before I purchased it. I used to like Epson printers, but will never buy another.
