Summary: Actually didn't buy from Amazon. Got a better deal at the time from Viking. The printer gives outstanding colour and mono output. It is ENORMOUS compared to a colour inkjet and it takes a while for colour images to come out when doing a one-off (cos each individual colour cartridge has to rotate).
Summary: I bought our first Epson C1100n in 2007 after a lot of research and replaced it with a USB only C1100 in 2009 after we got a printer cartridge jammed and needed to print some marketing material urgently.
Summary: Print quality is good - though the colours sometimes lack the brilliance of other manufacturers colour laser output. Consummables are expensive in standard retail outlets, but can be found much cheaper on Ebay.
Summary: Arrived within a day, after a couple of weeks a message started to appear advising a service was required (E511) called Amazon who gave me contact details for Epson Technical Support who talked us through the query which related to the photoconductor and the problem was resolved immediately.
Summary: Bought the Epson to replace a worn out HP colour laser, sad that it's cheaper to buy a new printer than have bought the HP replacement parts! Chose the Epson based on low price, speed and lower consumables cost.
Summary: This is a replacement of the same model which worked well for 5 years. In the end it developed an 'error B door open' and the door was not open. I had to buy the same model because I had spent nearly £200 on tonners.
Good print quality but disappointingly expensive and difficult to maintain

Summary: This is a big, heavy printer and so not good if you have to carry it upstairs etc. In addition it hogs space on any surface you put it upon. The packaging is also very unwieldy. It is a pig to try to fit the cartridges and their replacements.
Summary: Yes it's BIG, yes it's noisy and, yes, it's ugly. But my God the results more than make up for it. Bought it as it was cheaper to buy this and a couple of reams of decent recyled laid paper to produce letter heads than to buy some from a high street printer. The quality is superb.
Summary: I've had this for over 2 years now, the print quality is top notch. Better than a £600 Dell colour laser that the office has. Can print quite decent photos, about magazine quality not quite up to inkjet quality. The toner lasts for ages, but do cost a fortune to replace.
