Garbage do not purchase

P F Petley, Amazon
20 December 2012
  • Summary: Arrived fine but I had just moved into a new home so I didn't set it up for 30 days, only to discovery print quality was terrible. Epson send a replacement with the exact same problem and with a small black ink cartridge instead of the full size one I got when I purchased it. It's noisy, slow, wifi barely works. Honestly it's going in the trash.

Good printer, bad complicated software

Kervin, Amazon
15 November 2012
  • Summary: Things were working well until the wireless connection mysteriously stopped working. Instead of having a simple printer driver that sends print jobs to the printer Epson opted to have *several* processes that need special permissions on the firewall. If I had known I would not have bought this printer. My printer connects to the network just find and so does the computer but now none of them can speak to each other.

Good specs poor quality control

Ron, Amazon
3 November 2012
  • Summary: The specs and reviews on this printer were generally very good. Unfortunately the printer was defective out of the box, never had an opportunity to see how it worked. Returned the printer the next day and received immediate credit from Amazon. Subsequently purchased a Brother with about the same features which is working as advertised.

I would give it zero stars if Amazon would let me

Ms. S. R. Bowers "greenpenhostage", Amazon
26 September 2012
  • Summary: This printer is known in our office as the spawn of satan. It was a nightmare to set up, it ended up taking an IT guy two trips to get it sorted. It connected to the first computer in the office fine and then refused to connect to any other computer, except to print test sheets. The scanner doesn't work, the whole thing freezes up and god forbid you ask it to print anything; the accompanying beeping and bellyaching as it claims incorrect paper sizes and paper jams that...

DON'T Buy this Printer

OREGONCHART, Staples
30 August 2012
  • Excerpt: I tried to print some business cards on this printer using Avery business card blanks purchased at Staples. It consistently jammed in spite of anything I tried. I wrote to Epson Customer service and received the following reply: hank you for contacting Epson regarding your Epson WorkForce 845. I do apologize if you are having some difficulties making the printer feed and print on your card stock paper.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use
  • Cons: Jams Easily

Product Okay, Epson Customer Support Awful

auntie karen, Amazon
9 August 2012
  • Summary: We upgraded from a Canon all in one to this Epson all in one -- even though Canon had an excellent customer loyalty program. The Epson was priced well for its functionality, speed, etc. Although the copying function worked fine from the get-go, we were not able to wirelessy scan PDFs to the PC, using the printer key pad. I tried to solve the problem by going to the Epson website (support.epson.com), but the website was down.

Programmed to Die at 20,000 pages

MaestroMan "maestro", Amazon
16 June 2012
  • Summary: IMPORTANT PLEASE READ THIS PEOPLE! After a few months of using this printer in the household, I started receiving error messages about my waste inkpad reaching the end of its service life. Finally, I couldn't exit the menu and all it does now is flash its buttons everywhere. The waste ink pad is where the ink that is used for non-printing tasks, such as ink head cleaning and borderless printing, is placed -- into an absorbent rag or sponge that holds the ink.

Terrible design flaw!

scballou, Staples
19 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Originally bought this for an artistic (photographer/graphic designer) Mac user. Printer scans nicely but it only scans and copies certain sizes (legal & letter). If you go beyond a traditional letter or legal size paper, you're just SOL. Returned it!
  • Pros: Compact Design, Fast Print Time, Quality scan image
  • Cons: Can't scan from printer, Flimsy Construction, Jams Easily, Unreliable
