Excerpt: While I have relied on an Epson 1280 for many years, it was now time to upgrade my office to something with better performance. So far, this printer has proven to be very fast, while the documents are sharp and clear. I immediatley experimented with MS Word and PDF documents, and both documents arrived without delay (my old printer took time.
Huge savings in a high color print volume environment!
31 December 2013
Summary: Installed this printer over 1.5 years ago at a school that does a large volume of color prints on a daily basis. This took the place of 5 smaller HP desktop inkjets, ink costs have dropped around 70% annually! The printer is quiet and very fast, jams are rare and the high capacity cartridges last 6-7 months. Has printed over 20,000 pages with no quality issues at all.
Summary: This printer worked well for first 300 prints Printer took one day off and third day did not get any prints out. cradle was moving but nothing printed on paper as it came out. Very disappointed thereafter, tried troubleshooting Display read "Printer error Restart Printer" till today Wasted money and time.
Summary: We're printing approx 25,000 pages a week and replaced older lasers with these Epsons. After purchasing the first B-510 we purchased two more (to decrease the printing times). All after all I can say that these printers are working extremely economic if used with refillable inks and extremely reliable if used with 24lb (90gr/m2) paper. Paper with 20 or (worse) 18lb caused a lot of paper jams... Printing speed full color is approx 10 to 12 sheets per minute.
Summary: I've been a home-based employee for 3 1/2 years now, and previously had been using HP printers in my home office... first the Deskjet 6940dt, then the Officejet Pro 8000. Both were dual-tray, auto-duplex units and had their pros and cons. The 6940 was not a robust machine, with limited ink and paper capacity, and slow speed. The 8000 was very cranky at times, rebooting (which takes a good 2-3 minutes) after every power blip or after several heavy jobs.
Summary: Mac users be ready for frustration. This printer did not come with a cable or driver for operation. After five days of back and forth with Epson I am sending the printer back to Amazon. Amazon failed to note that this product is not equipped with either printer or driver.
