Beware non compatible ink cartridges

Anthony Mott, Amazon
12 May 2013
  • 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.

Will never buy another Epson printer.

  • Summary: Not very happy with this printer it worked OK for the first couple of weeks but then the yellow ink was patchy so unable to print green and orange as the yellow does not flow correctly I have run 3 cleaning cycles which has helped but still far from right.This is my third Epson printer and they have all developed the same problem, when will I ever learn??

more than disappointed

redkite, Amazon
6 February 2013
  • Summary: After 5 months with no problems, we changed two of the colour cartridges and the printer has never worked since. 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.

Many many connection issues

Paul McCarthy, Amazon
5 February 2013
  • 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.

Will not scan to PDF

MacNab Lives, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: Neat little printer, but software malfunction after three weeks which means it will no longer scan to PDF. Gives incorrect error messages (for example, "connect computer" when computer is connected) then forces scan process through installed software rather than the control panel on the unit, and will only generate JPEG scans. If you ever need to scan documents, don't touch this with a bargepole.

consider the after costs when buying an Epson

K. P. Borley "Little-bit-of-bread-and-no-cheese", Amazon
4 November 2012
  • 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. Often questions like "how long will my ink last and how much will it cost to replace it ?" are forgotten.

Do not buy

Jon - N Wales, Amazon
8 September 2012
  • Summary: I am normally a pretty positive person - and as far as technical equipment is concerned - patient and reasonable competent. However, I have never had as many problems with an item of hardware as I have had with this product. The problems lie with the ink cartridges and the printer suddenly deciding that it does not recognise them. It is not limited to a colour either. One minute printing ok - the next the printer suddenly decides it does not like a particular cartridge.

Epson SX445w

Phil1970, Amazon
8 September 2012
  • Summary: Bought this for my daughter who is about to go off to university, thinking that it would be a good all round device, albeit for infrequent use. I am bitterly disappointed with this product! Firstly, it was difficult to set up in ad-hoc wireless connection mode. The wireless wizard connected easily to home network via access point but no obvious connection mode for ad hoc.
