Great for 3 Months

Meeee, Amazon
30 October 2013
  • Summary: I thought hey I'll just spend some extra $$$ and get a printer that will last a lifetime. That's a joke. There is no such thing anymore. Scanner is amazing but the printing deteriorated so rapidly until eventually it stopped printing at all. Tried all of the onboard cleaning options to no avail. Even went and bought a new set of ink, waste of money... I suggest you look elsewhere for a printer.

Inconsistent paper feed issues

connie T. Herrell, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: I do not like this printer. It does not easily take paper changes. You must use the awkward and slow interface on the tiny screen to assign paper changes, as well as in your application program. Unreliable. However, if you're just printing on regular paper (definitely NOT thicker paper) it will do just fine. The wireless connection works consistently. I ended up giving this to my children for their school projects and they are pleased with it's performance.

Horrible

Matthew J. Hodgkins, Amazon
21 March 2013
  • Summary: Pretty good when it worked but after JUST ONE YEAR it will not do ANYTHING because it says there's a paper jam and there's not! I bought it to print on CDs/DVDs and it won't do any of that because of a 'paper jam' that isn't there! Of course Epson won't do anything to replace it. Don't recommend this product or Epson.

13 days out of warrantee

  • Summary: Buying it from BestBuy, 1 year + 13 days after purchase, the master board was fried and 13 days out of warrantee. Upon assessing the cost for repairs, spending another $39, I learned it would cost $247 to repair (originally costing $149 + tax).

DO NOT BUY IF YOU WANT TO PRINT ON CARDSTOCK

Lynn saylor, Amazon
11 February 2012
  • Summary: We bought this printer last summer when we wanted to upgrade to a wireless printer. We selected this model because it had good reviews and had multiple color cartridges and would more efficiently use ink. This printer does many things well. It prints well over wireless. It prints pictures wonderfully. BUT even set on the thick paper setting, it is an effort in frustration to print on cardstock. (And sadly, I need to do this often!

Don't buy!

J. A. Topps, Amazon
24 January 2011
  • Summary: I've had this printer (the 700) for 27 1/4 months. Suddenly a message pops up saying "the ink pads are nearing the end of their service life. Contact EPSON support." Quite a shock to know there are ink pads that run out of service life in such a short time. The support page offers this advice: "Epson recommends replacing the printer, but if you want to continue using it, Epson recommends having the printer serviced at an Epson Customer Care Center.
