A great printer with a variety of features which gets used daily in our house

Excerpt: Last year my husband and I invested in an Apple iMac and part of the deal included a discount price on the Epson Stylus SX600FW. As it was the best option for WiFi connection to our iMac we made the decision to buy it, even though at about £130 it was considerably more expensive than the other printers on offer. Its wireless function to the iMac (which is in another room) is brilliant and we have never had any problems with the connection.
Summary: Very few electronics products make my wife say say "Wow that was money well spent", but this 'printer' did. I can't do half stars, otherwise this would have been 4.5, not 4. I configured the printer to our main desktop PC and wireless 802.11g router (tip passed on from another internet reviewer: Always select WIRELESS ONLY during installation, it makes life easier), which took a good 10 minutes, and required hooking the printer up to the router first, but that's fairly...
Summary: I bought this printer a couple of weeks ago. Set-up was very easy. A word of caution on the wireless set-up, though, as it requires a connection to the wireless modem, which in my case involved some logistic juggling as my wireless router is in a closet down the hall! Print quality is very good, and I was pleasantly surprised by the printer speed. The on screen interface is intuitive and easy to use. My only complaint is that ink use seems rather high.
Excerpt: "For a while i have been needing a wireless printer make it easier since i bought my laptop everytime i needed to print i had to start-up my desktop pc.Anyway when i was looking on the internet this was the cheapest WIFI printer i could find at the time was about £89 about 3 months ago i see it is now about £150 when looking at the reviews about it there was one's saying they had to call in an i.t technician and another saying complex to set-up, and ...
Pros: low priced for what it can do,fast printing
Cons: very noisy when starting printing,a bit bulky
Get it! Even with a FAX that maybe you don't want - or can't get working, it is a must for

Excerpt: Bought this today because the features and functions are so rich that for the price (£97) it was an absolute bargain. You can even print your own paper with narrow or wide fient or maths squared paper. It was a doddle to set up on the network (I have wired it in rather than use wireless although wireless is there as an option. The printer and scanner plus PCless copying is great and so far all seems to have worked well.
Summary: Good quality print and works wirelessly from a router which is some distance away. I have no need for the fax facility but it's there if required. Only criticism is that I found it a little difficult to set up, but I'm no techy. A good buy.
Summary: Had this printer for a couple of months now. So far, so good! It was relatively easy to install. However, we did have problems getting the fax to work. We ended up having to add a filter to the fax line which resolved the problem. Print quality/speed is very good and its easy to use - just make sure you read the instruction manual properly. Its also a very nice looking piece of equipment.
