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.
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.
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.
Summary: I bought an Epson Workforce 520 for my office. I like it so much that I bought one for home, too. There seemed to be a lot to recommend it. Installation, including wireless set-up, was pretty easy. It makes pretty good copies. In black-and-white draft mode, it prints really quickly.
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.
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.
