Summary: The first thing that struck me was that although it clearly said Epson SX515W on the box, the manual was for the SX510 and nothing in it even mentioned the SX515W, which I found slightly off-putting! I also found the instructions in the user guide (including the setup guide) very poor indeed. However, after selecting Quiet Mode in the printer preferences, I did not find the printer noisy at all. In fact, I thought it seemed considerably quieter than my Epson R220.
Summary: The printer is an excellent bit of kit but the WiFi set-up was something else on Windows 7. Firstly there are no instructions for Windows 7 but I followed the Wi-Fi instructions enclosed for Windows Vista. I got as far as section 2 and number 9 and that was when the problems started. I got a message saying Epson Net setup has stopped working and then any further instructions disappeared off my computer and I'm left thinking, 'Now what?'.
Summary: Pleased with printing however I'm disappointed with the paper feed. The feeder is almost vertical and lightweight paper falls forward thus often producing a paper feed error after switching on. I've wasted a considerable amount of paper as a result of having to bin one sheet every time I switch the printer on. A little bit noisy but print quality and speed are good.
EPSON Stylus SX515W - stylish, capable but not perfect
8 November 2009
Excerpt: "...I decided to purchase the Epson SX515W as it looked good, had all the features I wanted and was a good price. == Installation == The salesman advised me to set it up on the desktop initially as it would be hard wired via USB. If you hear this don't let it put you off. The set-up works fine even if you have a single laptop but you must ensure the printer is connected to it via USB when the initial printer setup is carried out. Anyhow, I set ...
Pros: Stylish, fast printing, quality output, good range of functions
Summary: I bought the Epson SX515W to replace my previous Epson inkjet after 5 years reliable service. It does everying scan, copies, prints to a high resolution. I am delighted with it. The only downside is the inkjet cartridges - the initial set I used seemed to run out quite quickly but I understand this is because ink is used to charge the print heads and the next set should last longer.
Summary: I bought this printer from a high street store starting with Ar and ending with gos, at the same price. Thought I'd share a quick review. You can by the SX200 without wifi for half the price, and the specs seem roughly the same, so basically you're paying double for the wi-fi aspect. Is it worth it? In a word, maybe. More on that later. However, the printer itself looks great, and was very easy to set up.
Painless wireless networking straight out of the box.

Excerpt: "The old printer was an Epson DX6000 and had served us well, but had networking became an issue when the number of PCs in the household grew exponentially. Vista seemed to create more problems, and it just didn't like one laptop in particular, returning a paper jam message whenever the laptop was attached via USB. The inkjets became clogged, and no amount of squirting ink through would clear them completely. If only the jets could be removed for cleaning, ...
Excerpt: grande stampante in tutto e per tutto, facile da usare e molto semplice, con un display molto chiaro, non necessita neanche di un pc per stampare delle foto da chiavetta usb o scheda di memoria sd o che sia. l'unica pecca che ho trovato è l'utilizzo con i vari sistemi operativi, se la usi con il cavetto usb non c'è nessun problema, però se vuoi usarla con il wifi, allora ecco l'insorgere dei seguenti problemi che con windows xp per usare lo scanner ...
Pros: ottime stampe
Cons: costo cartucce eccessivo, problemi wifi con windows 7ultimate

Summary: Im heutigen Bericht geht es um meinen Multifunktionsdrucker SX515W aus dem Hause Epson, der durch seine vielseitige Verwendung hervorsticht. Erst mal muss ich sagen, das ich mir diesen Drucker kaufen musste, weil mein alter Epson leider den Geist aufgegeben hat und da ich mit Epson immer sehr gute Erfahrungen gemacht habe, holte ich mir wieder einen von dieser Firma.
