Excerpt: I bought this printer purely on the basis that there are cheap ink cartridges available for it. The scanning is easy and the print quality is great. However when using compatible ink cartridges, there are often ink compatibility error messages.

Excerpt: Epson Stylus SX515 inkjet all in one wireless printer The layout of this all-in-one device is pretty conventional. The whole model is as black in colour as black can be with the scanner lid having a decorative pattern of grey dots adorning it.
Excerpt: The Epson SX515W is an All-in-One multi function printer that has the usual print, scan and photocopy facilities.
