Summary: While the printer looks to be in good shape, I've used 10 cartridges within the first 3 days. It used up the intitial five I put in within the first day and I had to put in five more cartridges within the next two days. The colors print but the black does not. Just frustrated.
Summary: Epson has introduced self-sabotage chips to their machines if you use anything but OEM cartridges. The non-OEM cartridges don't work in my machine anymore. Not only that, this blasted thing wastes so much ink it's incredible.
Summary: After not using my Epson c120 for a while, I replaced all cartridges and tried to print. I had to clean the heads to get the colors to print, but the blacks never printed. In total, I cleaned the heads 5 times.
Summary: The printer works fine as long as all of the ink cartridges are full, but you can't print a black and white text document with two full black ink cartridges if any one of the color cartridges are empty.
Summary: I've used Epson printers for years but, after the C120, I doubt I'll buy an Epson again. I was given this machine by a friend who had good luck with it. But after investing $ 44 in ink (the two black cartridges were empty) I had to clean the printer heads about four times until the printing was far...
Summary: I was just going to post this very comment! I've owned several Epson printers throughout the years and have always loved them to death - having had to replace those little workhorses periodically. The all-time favorite for me was the old 640. This is BY FAR the worst printer I have ever used.
Summary: The Epson C120's been terrible for me! When any one of its tiny capacity ink cartridge empties, you'll be replacing *all of them* within a day or so, low or not. It's a great software design (if you're selling ink, that is). And good luck getting good print quality for very long.
Summary: Got this printer brand new in sealed box from a store liquidation sale for $21. Got two black replacement cartridges for $12. When I installed and tried to print, I got a "replace ink cartridge" message. It was showing that two of the brand new sealed cartridges were empty.
Summary: I have owned the C120 for 2 months-- Problems; refused to share in a network, Epson refused help Will not print a punched [3 hole] paper. Epson did not include this info in specs, but told me so, when I complained just plain noisy Have not changed to 3rd party cartridges yet--expect problems, though...
Summary: I would not consider this printer under any circumstance. It will not operate if any one of the 5 cartridges are empty. It holds two black and three colors. Epson should be ashamed of themselves. All they care about is selling ink.
