Overpriced, short shelf life, just not worth it

Terrence Leip, Amazon
22 May 2012
  • Summary: Ink is very expensive and produces far fewer pictures than claimed and if you let it sit for a few weeks, the heads get clogged up and require many, many cleanings, which all use up lots of ink. My Epson all in one printer does almost as good w/out the cost and waste. Save your money.

Unless you plan to use it weekly - don't buy it.

Tracie Claiborne, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought a Dash and loved the quality of the pictures, HOWEVER, since I only use it once a month or so, the print heads dry up on a regular basis. I have to run 6-8 cleaning cycles every time to clean the machine and now, it will no longer work.

Need a printer? Keep looking.

UCS308, Amazon
6 January 2008
  • Summary: If you want to pay $7.45 per 4x6 print for the first 20 you make, then this is the printer for you. Additional 4x6 prints will cost you $0.75 each. I am a photographer with several of Epson's Professional Printers so when it came to selecting a family printer that we could use to print snaps, Epson...

Crooked pictures and black blobs make for unacceptable printing

Doesn't last long

Josee Turner, Amazon
6 January 2008
  • Summary: I liked this printer at first. The quality is very good. I had to clean the heads everytime, and that wasted ink. Still, I liked the convenience. After about two years, the printer displayed an error that the print pack had to be replaced.

Too expensive to use.

  • Summary: We have stopped using this machine as the refills are expensive and not readily available locally in stores. We wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Bad Printer With Bad Support

Jeff D M, Amazon
6 January 2008
  • Summary: I received this product and it didn't work. OK, fine, that happens. Here's the problem - I called Epson support, and after 45 minutes and a whole ink cartridge they confirmed that it didn't work and offered to replace it, my BRAND NEW printer that didn't work, with a REFURBISHED printer.

A Waste of Money

No Ansel Adams, Amazon
6 January 2008
  • Summary: The first 40 prints were as advertised -- beautiful quality. However, after the printer sat unused for three months, the nozzles became clogged and now no amount of cleaning works. I've changed the cartridge and used up 10 sheets of paper for test pattern prints -- all without improvement.

Lousy product, even worse customer service

K.S., Amazon
6 January 2008
  • Summary: I received this as a gift with high expectations and could not have been more disappointed. While the photos it prints turn out relatively nice, it took 5 CARTRIDGES to make merely 35 prints. (You are supposed to be able to make about 100 with each cartridge).
