Summary: The "compatible" ink cartridges gave poor print quality - everything came out in pink. This brand new printer required specialist cleaning before it could be used and Epson cartridges had to be purchased.

Summary: One thing often overlooked when buying a printer is the cost of keeping the thing going once purchased. Research is done, reviews are read, and naturally the focus is on the quality of print, functions, reliability, etc.
Summary: I bought one of these Epson 445 printers after reading reviews, I should not have bothered, the first one would print text but not photos, they were either blured or smudged, I returned it and was given another one, this one went through the set up OK and then switched OFF, no matter what I (or the...
Summary: Very disappointing all round. Printer arrived and it all looked very nice and cool. HOWEVER: the black ink ran out within about a week (and I'm not a heavy user) and then the software begain to go crazy.

After reading up online we discovered there is an ink blockage which we have not been able to clear despite following instructions twice. The printer is useless now. £50+ wasted.
Summary: I am growing tired of the connection issues that I continually encounter with this printer. I have had many other printers and they have all worked fine, however, I am very dissatisfied with Epson's product. I will be replacing the Epson printer with a printer from another manufacturer ASAP.
Summary: I bought an Epson Sylus SX445W and regret doing so. At first it worked without any problems. That quickly changed. The black ink cartridge which came with printer ran out soon after I purchased the printer. It did so even though I hadn't printed very many documents.
This printer doesn't deserve the one star I have given it.

Summary: Ever since I bought this printer it has been trouble. The ink cartridges that came with it were ok, no problem, but when a colour one ran out I didn't bother replacing it as I don't print much in colour. The printer won't work if one cartridge is empty.
