Summary: the printer had previously been used and still had quick dial numbers in the memory. Although I bought the machine to scan document- the interface program for scanning is ok. But the scanner itself keeps jamming, not sure if this is the reason that the previous users got rid of it- but it is such a pain--otherwise it would be a good scanner with printer.
Excerpt: "I bought this printer after my previous one broke, we was initially looking for a wireless one but as this one was on offer for a good price, the extra money was not worth it. The printer itself is very quiet and prints out documents quickly, but can be slower when it comes to printing out full coloured images. The two different scanning options is very handy, I tend to scan or photocopy multiply pages at ones so i find the scanner on top which ...
Summary: Astoundingly it does not auto-sense whether the item is on the glass or on the ADF, unlike the excellent Brothers for example. - this is really teeedious, as the instructions do not highlight this defect. Also of course no network connection, but then it's CHEEP CHEEP !
Summary: Avoid this printer. It's noisy, slow and determined to frustate at every turn. Randomnly refuses to accept ink cartidges from other manufacturers and refuses to print if any cartridge requires replacement, even if only black & white is required. However, scanner and fax functions are fair.
Summary: Epson stylus office box305fw After using it a few times it refused to recognize the black ink, though it had before, I changed it for another one but still no good.my last Epson printer was very good but this one is a load of crap.
Summary: I bought this product on the strength of reviews I had read. I am really glad I did. The installation and set up were very straight forward including the fax facility. The print quality is excellent whether printing, scanning or copying. The scan speed is roughly double that of my previous stand alone scanner. The printer and copier are also quicker than my previous Epson machine despite the higher print quality.
Summary: Very happy with the quality of print. Speed is slower than the Laser I am used to but its good as inkjets go. Cant get the scanner to work at the moment but I think that is more of a problem with my computer needing to download the driver from the web (which is easy to do)because my disk drive is broken. Need a technical whizz to fix.
Summary: Printer is large, slow and noisy. But worked OK for about 14 months, then began misssing lines, smudging print etc. I had only used it for about 20 pages/month so it printed about 280 pages only! Hopeless after sales discussions with Epson "It's out of guarantee....nothing we can do.....suggest you return for £60+ repair. etc" Answer: Buy an HP! They last longer.
