Excerpt: the epson sx 130 is an absolute pain. It never workes right, it is hard to install-and-print, it robs you of your money and it makes your life extremely difficult by forcing you to buy ink on sunday evenings (when every ink shop is closed) right before your deadline simply because it demands you...
Summary: I bought an Epson SX130 in December 2011. I found it continually temperamental but persevered with it as my usage was very light and intermittent. The quality of the output was dismal after the Canon I had previously used for a number o years.
Excerpt: I usually buy printers based on the price tag since I am not too much of a tech wiz. This printer surprised me since i managed to get it for only 30 pounds and the ink was not too expensive either. Well, all was going well with the printer, no problems whatsoever with it, until it ran out of ink.
Excerpt: I have brought this printer after my old printer suddenly stopped working. I paid around £30 for it as I was on a tight budget. The size of the printer is pretty small. It fits under my computer desk very easily without any problems.
Summary: the printer arrived quickly and it was fairly easy to install but after few printing it stopped working and now every time i have to print something i need to uninstall and reinstall the software... luckily the scanner, which is the one we needed more, seems to work properly... fingers crossed!
Summary: Strike that title: this is a dysfunctional printer. It is without question the worst printer I have ever owned. It is absurdly noisy and slow. Its output, particularly black, is rubbish, even with brand-new cartridges.
Summary: I bought the Epson Stylus SX130 a year ago. At about £30 it was cheap but met a need - albeit slowly - for a home printer. For the first couple of months I used Epson's notoriously expensive inks that I purchased with the SX130.
Summary: I took this to university. I don't print often but in 1 year I went through a ridiculous amount of ink. It does not recognise 'compatible' ink only the genuine ridiculously expensive stuff. If you so much as even touch the printer the paper feed decides to not work.
