This printer...is awful...

Amazon Customer, Amazon
3 June 2014
  • Summary: We bought it a billion years ago and have hardly ever used it because it just effing sucks. It won't print unless both black cartridges are full (BOTH!!! EVEN WHEN ONE IS FULL!!!) and if one is almost empty you accidentally print off a 70 page packet missing every other paragraph.

No stars.

Greg, Amazon
25 March 2014
  • Summary: Do you like aggravation? Do you hate money, time, and the feeling of not being frustrated? Then this is the printer for you. The ink problems have been discussed by others, but know that even if money is no object to you and you have your own infinite well of ink cartridges that this printer is...

Epson WorkForce... the gold standard for personal use injet all-in-ones.

M. Garvey, Amazon
20 February 2014
  • Summary: I work in IT so I am frequently asked to shop technology for people. This particular printer I purchased for my mother-in-law who just retired. For what you get and for what you pay for it, you really can't beat these printers.

Terrible

James, Amazon
13 December 2013
  • Summary: It requires all 5 ink cartridges to be inserted in order to work (can't have just one black in, you need two). It eats up ink extremely fast. Epson has lost my confidence.

Almost as good as not owning a printer at all

George Haskell, Amazon
5 December 2013
  • Summary: Anytime I want to spend a couple of hours feeling frustrated and unproductive, I can always try to use my Workforce 520. I am an average kind of user. I expect that using a printer ought to be kind of like driving a car: after a bit of training I expect to put the key in, start it up and drive.

DOES NOT WORK WITH APPLE, and maybe not with anything else either

Lesly Buer, Amazon
5 December 2013
  • Summary: This is the worst printer. I have to turn it on and off between every single print job for it to work. Plus, the scanning is just awful. It creates HUGE documents (like 10MB), when other scanners turn the same product into 150 KB.

Most expensive free printer I've ever had

Marisa G "m.g.", Amazon
20 November 2013
  • Summary: This printer "runs out" of ink way too often to be work it. I've had this printer for 3 years and I've replaced the ink countless times. We weren't even using it for almost a year because I refused to keep spending money on ink. Don't even consider buying it.

Piece of JUNK

Maurice, Amazon
11 July 2013
  • Summary: I have had this printer for about a year. This thing goes through ink like nothing I have ever had in the past and I have owned HP, EPSON, BROTHER AND ETC. If one ink level is low, it will not let you print.

JUNK JUNK JUNK

Scott Walmsley "Moptop", Amazon
31 January 2013
  • Summary: Although the print quality of this machine is quite good, it does no good whatsoever if the paper will not feed. After spending almost $60. on new ink cartridges the printer will not accept the paper no matter what type it is.

High-maintenance paperweight

Indiana Joe, Amazon
28 January 2013
  • Summary: Pros: Scan and print quality were excellent when it worked. Networking was easy to set up and very reliable. Worked well with both Android and iOS using the iprint app. Cons: I got two years of light use out of it before the head went south and I started getting two pages between cleanings.
