This stupid printer won't let you print B&W if a color cartridge is out of ink

Summary: This printer works well and better than HP printers I have owned, but WARNING - this printer uses four ink cartridges, and they refuse to let you continue printing BLACK & WHITE if one of the color cartridges is low.
Summary: Bought one over the holidays. Tried to set it up on my WiFi network -- the 645 did not see it. Called Tech Support, was told that they do not guarantee connectivity beyond 30ft, but recommend 15-20ft. Huh? What's the point of WiFi then?

Summary: One thing often overlooked when buying a printer is the cost of keeping the thing going once purchased. Research is done, reviews are read, and naturally the focus is on the quality of print, functions, reliability, etc.
Summary: This is a piece of junk. First, it's huge and second, it is incredibly unreliable. Sometimes it will work over wi-fi, other times it won't and there's really no way to tell. The scanner feeder is also useless. Honestly, this is worthless and we're throwing it (and the $120 we spent on it) away.
Summary: Epson literature says it is a fax, but after two months of working with Tech Support, they now say it is guaranteed to work only with a "Pulse" Analog phone systems, not Digital, not FIOS, and not tone. This is outrageous!!!
Summary: Was decent when it worked, but now after owning it for only 3months, it constantly reports auto doc feed jams, errors communicating with the computer for scans (no problem for printing), and prints blank sheets of paper when making photocopies.
Summary: The actual print quality is decent. Epson's software is absolutely terrible. The printer shows offline in Windows 7 when connected to my WiFi network; I've had to install the printer drivers several times; scanning to a computer does not work reliably--again it says the printer is not found.
Summary: I purchased an Epson 645 about 3 weeks ago after a bad run in with an brand new HP All-in-one that would print half pages and then just quit. The Epson 645 had a very easy to setup and prints from my iPhone and iPad and iMac without any wireless signal problems.
Summary: Shopper Beware. The workforce series overall are good devices if all you are doing is printing on normal copy paper weight, ie the paper's thickness. These printers will not work with papers heaver than a 24lb wight. Paper weight is an indication of paper's thickness.
