Summary: The ink refills are exorbitant in cost and Epson makes it impossible to use generic ink. I HATE THIS PRINTER because of the high ink cost. I'm ditching it and getting one that can use cheap[er] ink. Otherwise, the printer functioned very well.
Summary: I bought this printer because of the ability to print double sided pages and for printing pictures. The double-sided printing feature worked for about 100 pages then started to jam every time I selected that feature. The printing is not high quality. You can't print more than 3 pages at a time, and you can only print one picture at a time from the port on the front of the unit. This was a waste of money.
Cons: Have never been able to get consistent wi-fi connection to print from any of our computers...works first day and then that's it. Ink is EXPENSIVE and doesn't go far. Cannot install new driver(s) for Lion.
Summary: This printer prints clear, crisp images. However, the scan tool doesn't scan colors accurately. It is an elaborate process to change the settings and the one-button scanning is no longer an option if you want the color settings to be anything other than the factory presets. In addition, the printer will, for no apparent reason, stop "talking" with all the other computers in the house. The wifi feature, while convenient when it works, is a nuisance most of the time.
Summary: I spent 7 hours trying to set up this printer. I am pretty tech savvy. After 5 hours, trying to set it up on 2 Windows laptops and 1 Macbook pro, I could not get the printer to talk to the computers. I downloaded all the lates drivers also. My wirelss network is pretty standard and is working fine. I called Epson support. They were nice but useless. I think the software for making wireless conection in the printer must be defective. I am returing this all-in -one.
Summary: I've had an HP PhotoSmart C5280 for about three years, and I figured that I could either buy my next two ink refills, or just buy another printer that had more of the features I wanted. I've been pretty happy with this printer so far. I haven't used all of its features yet, but I immediately tried out the big differences to make sure this would be a winner for me.
