TERRIBLE

vett66rob, CNET
18 September 2014
  • Summary: Would not connect via wireless unless connected by USB during that session.  NEVER printed any text adjacent to any thing with color in it.    Customer service dragged support along until the warranty was expired then simply said,"oh, you should have sent this in for repair."  Even though there was record of several calls about the problems they have now washed their hands of the device.  I'm out - No Epson EVER.
  • Pros: scanned
  • Cons: unreliable printer

If I could give you 0 stars I would, just because you are money grubbing jerkwads.

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: If I could give you 0 stars I would, just because you are money grubbing jerkwads. Turns out, after reinstalling a printer driver on one of my systems, it updated the printer so now I can't use my non-epson ink cartridges. Funny, they hadn't broken the printer in the 2 years I have had it up til now, despite the new warning from the jerkwads (Epson) that says "Epson recommends the genuine Epson cartridges listed above.

Very Disappointed

Chris Holdorf, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: We have had a lot of trouble with this printer. We have used it with two desktops running Windows and a Macbook Pro. All 3 units have had trouble printing. None of them can scan. After much frustration, it was eventually hardwired to one of the desktops. On the few occasions that we have gotten something to scan, the colors have been inaccurate. We have been using this printer about 18 months, and we hate it.

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.

Dual-Scanning via Auto-Doc Feeder doesn't work - it's Junk: 2 units, 2 failures

Bill_G, Amazon
1 December 2012
  • Summary: Length:: 1:55 Mins People will have different experiences based upon how they want to use this printer/scanner/copier. I have an Epson WorkForce 610, which has been very good and that's why I tried the WF-845. I bought this unit for the dual-sided scanning & printing capability. This is my second unit and I have yet to get it to work and it's because of the fundamentally poor design of the automatic document feeder (ADF), which you'll understand if you watch the video I...

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

Amazon Customer, 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.
