Summary: I purchased the Epson XP-800 for my daughters school work. They both have MAC computers and wanted wireless for their convenience. After only having this printer less than 6 months, it suddenly stopped printing black ink. I cleaned the heads several times and purchased all new ink cartilage x5 ($100) hoping this would fix the problem. Went to Epson support and continued to clean the heads, etc. as they instructed. Did it help? No.
Summary: I bought this printer 1.5 months ago and already have two problems. One problem related to the printer cannot recognize the ink cartridges (even though they are made by Epson). Epson has to resend me a brand new set of cartridges. Another problem is related to the Black ink cartridges not working. The time I have spent to investigate the problems is much longer that the time which I can actually used the printer. It has been a very frustrating experience so far.
Summary: This printer is the 2nd. one I've had. Had to exchange the first one in less than a week, would not print black. Now the exchanged 2nd one will not print text, nor photos. This is the first time I have purchased an Epson and my last. It eats ink!!! It won't print photos without lines! It is less than a month old! Seems like I purchased a LEMON two times in a row!!!
Summary: I have had nothing but problems with this printer. The ink cartridges do not last long. You cannot print in black if any other ink cartridge is out of ink. It just keeps beeping at you to fix it. It has a tray that moves in and out when printing something. I am just waiting for the gears on that thing to break. Luckily I received this as a gift, so I did not spend any of my own money. I would NOT recommend.
Summary: Love the speed. That's all I love. This thing drinks ink like there's no tomorrow. At least when it actually recognizes a new ink cartridge. I can usually count on twenty minutes of testing and cleaning every time I change a cartridge--which is pretty frequently due to the aforementioned drinking problem. I'm ready to call it quits on this 2-month old purchase as I am spending a fortune on ink and lost time. No more Epson printers for me.
