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. I have had to replace ink regularly due to error messages only to find the cartridges are still full of ink. Additionally, the cartridges block up the print head and the printer does not function correctly.
Excerpt: The Epson SX515W is an All-in-One multi function printer that has the usual print, scan and photocopy facilities. The printer itself looks fairly sturdy with a carbon fibre style design in Black/Grey on the scanner lid and side control panel, with standard Black plastic down the front and sides. As with a lot of cheaper Epson printers, it only has a vertical rear paper feed which tends to lead to more problems than a front horizontal feed tray.
I paid £10 for this and for the price it isnt bad but it may be worth paying that extra £20 or more.

Excerpt: I bought this product for my grandmother as a birthday present, as she isn't great on computers but she isn't a complete technophobe. I thought as the printer is wireless it would be ideal for my nan as she could just press print from her laptop and it would work anywere in the house. The printer worked fine for about 3 or 4 months but when it came to changing the black ink cartridge the problems all started.
Good printer and nice value, but ink doesn't last long

Summary: It is a very nice printer. It looks nice and is a fair size. Its functions of printing scanning and reading memory card etc. are all great. It works really well and prints very quickly. Thats the good things. On the other hand however i feel that the value for money of this product is ruined by the fact that the ink runs out very quickly. I think it would be worth spending the extra money on a printer that had longer lasting ink.
