Good quality but would never buy if had to do over
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This printer is good quality - however I would never buy it if I could do this over! This printer seriously makes me crazy! One it is not as easy to use and figure out as the HP printer that we have, two you can not go to the store and have your ink cartridges refilled for A LOT LOT less on the Epson cartridges - which makes it cost a lot more to keep up with printing, and my BIGGEST COMPLAINT with this printer is that if one color of ink runs out it stops printing,...
Summary: I really loved this product for about a week. Then I started having problems with the black ink not printing. I did everything I could think of to do, cleaned the nozzles via the clean nozzle function on the printer maintenance menu, alignment, etc. ...to no avail. So I went online in search of an answer and found that many, many people had the same problem. They offerred alot of suggestions on how to resolve this problem.
Pros: Fast set up Fax and scan easy to use Print quality acceptable
Cons: Ink very expensive Requires you to replace color ink cartridge even if you only want to print in black or scan Forces you to buy Epson new ink cartridges, not refilled cartridges Very loud Paper tray flimsy and awkward location

Pros: Epson was good about sending me a new (actually refurbished) replacement when I couldn't get it to print. I'm glad I registered the printer after I purchased it a little over a year ago.
Cons: The worst is that everytime I send a document to print, the delay is so long that I resend it, thinking it must not have gone through. I can't tell you how many times I've printed out a document twice because of the delay.
Pros: Decent scanner and copier. Print quality is acceptable, but not great. Wireless is a nice feature to have, but we have not used it.
Cons: Very noisy when printing. Ink usage seems excessive especially considering the print quality is not stellar; even the High Performance cartridges do not last very long. When one ink cartridge runs out, printer will not not work, even black & white
"Terrible paper feed & ink issues. I've had 3 in a year!"

Pros: Epson service is good, too bad their product is probematic.
Cons: Product is unreliable and plagued with issues. First a paper feed problem, then the replacement unit came with an ink issue and did not recognize the cartridges. The replacement units are refubished models and take over a week to arrive.
Pros: Quick and decent printing once the priter is warmed up.
Cons: VERY noisy paper feeder. Once any of the ink cartridges run out, the printer stops. A color cartridge can run out, and you cannot even print a black and white page. You cannot even Fax or copy anything.
