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.

Ink Hog. Print stops when there's a near empty cartridge.

mim, Amazon
8 January 2013
  • Summary: Of all the color printers I've owned, this is the first one that stops you from printing if one cartridge empties. Even if you're printing black and white, but a color cartridge is out, you can't print black & white. It happens way too often, even when you don't print much color.

Wireless connection doesn't work properly

Dr. R, Amazon
20 December 2012
  • Summary: If you use the wireless option, your computer will incorrectly report that the printer is offline or not turned on. The printer will be on and you can see that it is on. You can even use the scanner and fax when the computer incorrectly report that its offline.

A bit cheap and an ink glutton

Berel Frankl, Amazon
16 April 2011
  • Summary: The materials (primarily plastic) are cheap and poorly molded. Many parts are hard to adjust or move. The paper feed is undependable and often just doesn't work correctly. This printer consumes ink like a glutton at a free all-you-can-eat buffet.

A great way to get you to buy ink cartridges

T. Simons, Amazon
16 February 2011
  • Summary: This printer's a great way to get you to buy extremely expensive ink cartridges -- if you buy from Epson, you'll end up paying about $50 per set of cartridges (1 black, 1 red, 1 yellow, 1 blue), or about $35 for the three color cartridges / $15 for a black-ink cartridge.
