More jam than paper

Matt McOwen, Amazon
19 February 2013
  • 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!

Do a Web Search: Epson Artisan Printer Pad Error

The Virginian, Amazon
8 February 2013
  • 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...

The Worst Printer

Star, Amazon
4 November 2011
  • Summary: This is absolutely the worst printer I have ever had, and now after having it for only a year, it is no longer functioning. I purchased this printer because I read great reviews for it, but beware if a review is written after using a printer only for a couple days or weeks. You can't really know how the printer performs in such a short time period.

Big Disappointment

Dave, Amazon
14 September 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this after seeing a number of very positive reviews on photo quality and a pretty good price - I should have read closer. This printer has well documented problems with recognizing ink cartridges. My experience: I set it up per directions and installed all ink cartridges. The front panel status screen tells me that it can't recognize any of them. I re-seat them all with no change.

Poor quality prints

MIKE H, Amazon
29 August 2011
  • Summary: I wanted to upgrade from my HP PSC 2410 Photosmart printer since it does not print well on 3.5 x 5" card stock. After reading all of the positive reviews for the Epson Artisan 835 on Amazon, I decided to purchase the printer. Unfortunately, it did not live up to my expectations. The good: - The printer does very well with 3.5 x 5" card stock. - Epson technical support is very friendly. They even sent me some free ink for the trouble.
