Summary: Have had 2 previous epson all in one printers that lasted 5 years plus each but this machine (workforce 845) was a total waste of money. Started mulfunctioning after a year. Did not live up to expectations or what epson drummed it up to be.
Pros: looks good
Cons: not economical on ink. paper jam issues when there is no paper jam. lots of technical issues. cheap construction
Summary: If you are printing documents with pictures in them I do not recommend you get this printer. I did see this issue in other reviews for this printer. I based my decision on the overall 4 star rating, the majority of ratings for this printer did not mention picture issues.
Pros: It's ok, prints text fine, easy enough to setup. I like the big screen.
Cons: When printing pictures embedded in a word document it prints lines in the pictures on quality print. Big 1/4 inch lines on normal print.
Summary: All in all, I would not recommend this printer unless you are only using plain paper.
Pros: Easy on ink and quiet operation.
Cons: Printer keeps jamming when trying to print Avery business card stock. Front of the card will print fine but the back is off line. When using plain paper it is fine. Printer will also jam with card stock.
Wanted to like it, but flimsy and eventually broke

Summary: I researched and researched. On the stats, this Epson 845 seemed liked the best, so I bought it. 1.5 months into owning it, the bottom paper tray stopped feeding paper. This ended up being a blessing in disguise (thanks to J&R Music whom I bought it through via Amazon).
Summary: After my HP OfficeJet died after 6 1/2 years, I began doing an in-depth analysis of all mid-range All-In-Ones multi-function printers that met my wish list. There was a tie between the Epson Workforce 875, the Canon Pixma line of AIO's, and the HP AIO's.
Summary: " The 845 was easy to set up, but has some compatibility issues with Macs. Everything went great with the wireless set up, but I had to connect the 845 to the Mac with a USB cable to allow scanning to the Mac. I can't print pdf files. The 845 simply cancels the print job citing a Library Error.
