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? For the record: I had a KODAK ESP 9250 in the exact same spot that worked flawlessly over wireless (exactly 39 ft and one very thin drywall away from the VERIZON router).

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. Often questions like "how long will my ink last and how much will it cost to replace it ?" are forgotten.
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. If it were up to my husband we would throw it off our roof, but I think we'll just leave it in the garbage.
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!!! This warning should be in BOLD PRINT in all Amazon Ads Epson WorkForce 645 Wireless All-in-One Color Inkjet Printer, Copier, Scanner, Fax (C11CB86201) . SEE EPSON RESPONSE: = Thank you for your response.
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: 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. But the printer I purchased had one big hiccup. It had horizontal banding on everything no matter how many times I cleaned the print heads and aligned the nozzles.
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. Although the company touts the various sizes of paper the printer will handle it does not mention its very narrow range of paper weight.
Summary: " I have had difficulty getting it to run like my last printer/fax machine.I am thinking of boxing it back up and taking it back to the store from which I purchased the machine.I have not been happy with the fax for which we purchased the machine.It either won't answer or the phone won't work because of it.
