Summary: Print quality is decent. Scans look good and I love that I can scan large documents. Ubuntu support is questionable. I have not figured out printing to 11x17 paper yet. I am currently choosing A3 paper size, which does not fill the whole page, and is not aligned correctly and sometimes runs off the page. I really hope they improve their linux and Ubuntu support!
Summary: This printer will run out of ink mid job and doesn't hold the place but spits out an a3 half printed page. If it runs out of every color in a day you could waste 4 A3 pages per day. They are not cheap, the inks are not cheap either. Not a happy customer.
No Plain Paper Option for borderles11x17/13x19size
23 September 2013
Summary: WORK FORCE is a misnomer. I can not print my drawings on plain paper in Landscape or portrait mode for 11"x17" or 13"x19" size. This is the WORK FORCE for me. Even iYOGI the tech people could not help.
Summary: I have to say that this printer has been a pretty big disappointment for me. I'm unable to print on anything but photo paper and regular copy paper. I've attempted to print on 6 x4 card stock and it jams every time. I've also attempted to scan and save documents, but get an error message and am directed to close the print window and start again. This has proven futile--have yet to save a scanned document. I thought maybe the driver was old, but no, driver is up to date.
Summary: I really like the machine but it uses too much ink. I go through ink at my job at least every other month. It seams like I am always out of ink. I purchased a Workforce pro WP-4540 previously to this one. I loved that machine and I only needed ink 2x per year. It leaked yellow ink which I found out later was a common problem with that machine. It only lasted 2 years. I don't think I would purchase another epson unless it really had good reviews.
Summary: This is an affordable, wide format with nice quality print. No complaints there. Complaint 1. To print envelopes and different sized papers, you must remove the paper tray, and remove all existing paper. There is no feeding slot or other alternative way to insert paper. This is something I would expect from any printer. Complaint 2. This printer jams EASILY--and sometimes insists there is a paper jam, even when there isn't one.
