What a piece of garbage.

J. Kee, Amazon
10 January 2016
  • Summary: Stops working completely when an ink cartridge is empty. You can not even send a fax. What a piece of garbage.

One Star

sobchak, Amazon
16 February 2015
  • Summary: Ink very expensive and doesn't last long, but the real issue is constant paper jams. Frustrating. Quite literally, the worst printer I have ever owned (and I've owned a lot). Getting a perverse pleasure out of shopping for a new printer and removing all Epson products from the search.

Disapointed....

voitel, Amazon
29 November 2014
  • Summary: I bought this printer about two+ years ago. About a year ago my laptop could not print to the printer. I tried everything: reinstalling drivers, resetting printer... everything. As of today, my second computer also cannot print to this printer.

  • Summary: I loved this printer when I first received it however 2 months ago it stopped printing. It copies paper the light goes on and it sounds and the paper moves as if printing but it will not print. I went on the Epson web site and they could not help me.

NEVER BUY EPSON

Andrew, Amazon
2 October 2013
  • Summary: Ink is expensive, and I want an alternative to Epson ink. I tried injecting new ink, but the printer knows you are using the same cartridge and rejects it. Then, I bought ink from another vendor, and it worked for a good while, but then the printer somehow caught on that they weren't Epson products...

Will Not Print without Color

B-PAX, Amazon
11 August 2013
  • Summary: This printer has been a nightmare since I purchased it two years ago. I've been able to print about 10 documents on it over the past two+ years. I'm very disappointed with Epson and this will be the last time I ever use them.

Finally tried an Epson

debbie ellis, Amazon
25 January 2013
  • Summary: After using HP printers and all-in-ones, I thought I'd venture out and try an Epson. I had heard from co-workers and also read online about how wonderful Epson printers were, especially at printing photos. So I bought the Epson WorkForce 840.

Not reliable. Look for other options.

AlexTheGreat1, Amazon
17 October 2012
  • Summary: I don't do that much printing, so I just wanted something reliable for light printing and scanning. This is not it. Super temperamental when printing documents that are 10+ pages. Scanning basically sucks. It'll scan, but it takes forever to show up. Overall, it kind of blows.

JUNK JUNK JUNK NOT FOR USE WITH MACS!!!

The Vid Pro, Amazon
20 July 2012
  • Summary: We are a video production house and use 6 Epson printers of various models. This 840 has been nothing but trouble from day one. Doesn't recognize genuine epson cartridges. Freezes up in the middle of the print. Shuts itself off and then reboots. All for no rhyme or reason. Purely at random times.

Only prints one size of enveloe

Larry L., Newegg
20 December 2011
  • Pros: Lots of nice integrated features.
  • Cons: It was my fault that I didn't notice its fatal flaw: it only prints size #10 envelopes.
