Summary: My all time favorite printer. Get the ciss ink systems that people are selling and print away. If you use it daily, don't ever turn it off. That way it doesn't go through the cleaning cycles so the waste ink thing never gets full and never requires a reset.
Summary: I have had this printer for two years. The print quality is excellent but the paper handling is terrible. From day 1 I had problems feeding paper, paper jams, tray issues. I have tried many different brands and types of paper with no luck. Last night I finally gave up, unplugged the printer and am now shopping for a new one. Ugh!
Summary: These printers are like the androids in Blade Runner. They have a fixed life programmed into their code. In other words, Epson has built a fixed lifetime into their Artisan printers, and once they reach it the software inside kills the printer for good. More specifically, Epson has installed a counter in the machine that counts something caled "Waste Ink" (don't ask - it's a LONG story), and once a certain count has been reached, the software permanently disables the...
Summary: This printer was purchased to serve as a general document printer and an above quality, casual photo printer. i never printed a photo i would share on photo paper.

It printed non-color documents clearly, but finally the paper jammed so badly, and so often, that I simply unplugged it and tossed it in the trash.
Great all-in-one unit for home business and family.

Summary: This is our second. We go through a lot of prints over the year for our home business as well as college, junior high and elementary school work. Having years of graphic design experience, I demand a lot of my printers and scanners. The prints are better than anything I was ever able to get with film and the ability to control the images is way better than taking it to Costco or anywhere else. The scanner also rivals most stand alone scanners.
Excellent product. Was the last one at Adorama and got a great price

Summary: I bought this product because I read an excellent review from this printer, better than the 837. Pros: really like it because prints fast in B&W and color, scans pretty fast even with 1200 ppi resolutions, it's smooth and silent, doesn't vibrate like other printers, prints both sides (a little slower than expected), but overall I think it's a smart shop.
