Summary: a very very cheap printer that proves the old adage, you get what you pay for. The print nozzles have to be cleaned EVERY time you want to use it. It normally takes about ten sheets of paper and two to three hours of cursing and swearing at the thing to print one simple black and white text document. Oh, and if you happen to run out of yellow ink, forget about printing anything in black and white cos it won't work without all four cartridges full.
Summary: I have had this printer about a year and its probably the most frustrating piece of hardware I have ever bought. Its noisy, takes ages to start up printing and does not pull in A4 paper correctly all the time. The main problem however is with the ink cartridges. They dont last long at all, and if one colour one runs out (even though you can hear ink in it if you shake it) it wont print black and white.
Summary: I had an epson years ago with my first computer. It was rubbish. I moved onto a fantastic Hewlett Packard PSC and it gave me fantastic service for nearly 10 years! Amazing! I would have had it fixed, but in today's throw-away-society nobody will actually fix printers any more. So I bought the Epson SX100, giving Epson a chance again, mainly due to the price, and the relative cheapness of compatible ink. You get what you pay for.
Summary: Had this printer a couple of years. The ink cartridges don't seem to last long and often sound like there's still ink left in them when they have supposedly expired. You have to follow on screen instructions to change EACH cartridge one at a time, so you have to go through the whole process for each cartridge separately. Then it gets temperamental and doesn't "recognise" the ink cartridges or they are "incompatible" with the printer.
Summary: This printer is worth throwing in the bin as soon as you have brought it. I got one to replace my old lexmark Z615 and have had nothing but trouble from it. Dont be fooled by the cheap ink ideas epson have thier ink cartrides are so small you can only print a pathetic amount of pages with them before they run out, and if any of the other colours run out it wont let you print - even if the document is black and white.
Summary: This printer just drinks ink like water, I am sure it indicates that ink is needed when there is probably ink in the cartridges and whatever you do it then refuses to print. If you are out of black ink it won't print in colour either. If any of the colour cartridges are too low, it won't print in black. I reckon it prints about 20 pages before it gives up and wants more ink which is very expensive. The quality of the printing is fine and the scanning function is good.
Summary: I bought this printer about a year ago, and my review would be "great initially" "rubbish after a few months". Reason being, I hardly print anything and when I do come to print, there's never any ink in the cartridges, not because I use the ink to print, but because the printer seems to drink the ink for fun.
Summary: Initially I was very pleased. Cheap good quality printer that seemed to work well, so much so that I bought one for my father too. Having used it for a few months I decided I could no longer cope with it. Almost impossible to load paper successfully. Declined to print because an EPSON cartridge was 'empty' despite determining it was still half full after shaking to hear that the cartridge still had liquid in it.
Summary: I never write reviews but i hate this printer so much that i think others should be warned. So whats wrong with it? -it is huge....biggest printer i have ever seen -very loud -incredibly slow -jams a lot so please do not buy this printer!
Summary: Don't waste your hard earned money on this printer! Initially, apart from it being very noisy, all appeared well. Print quality was acceptable and the scanner did a reasonable job. However, I have had it long enough to know that it uses unacceptable quantities of ink which is both frustrating and very expensive to keep replacing the cartridges. I am about to ditch it as the recently purchased black ink cartridge has used over half its ink and has only printed 17 pages.
