Summary: Worked well enough when it printed. Then it ran out of black ink and because it took me a little while to replace, I had to clean the heads. This is where my troubles began. I did the nozzle clean/check routine once, which showed that one of my black ink heads was clogged.
Big fan of high-end Epson printers. But the C120 is plain awful.

Summary: My experience with high-end photo quality Epson printers has been very positive. Too bad Epson's quality did not carry over to their consumer grade products. Not only is this printer slow with mediocre print quality, it also sucks ink like a sponge.
Summary: I am giving this printer 2 stars because the print quality is actually decent. However, as others have said, it is NOT economical. The ink runs out fast and it is expensive. One of my biggest problems with this printer is how it forces you to buy colored ink even if you don't need it.
Summary: total waste of money.. it says my ink is low/out in the cartridges when there is clearly ink left to use.. it wont recognize the generic cartridges i got for it and the ink is really expensive ... seems to jam easily ..
Ink is overpriced Watch out, no longer recognizes refill cartridges!

Summary: The problem with Epson is the high cost of printing -- over 2x the cost/page compared to Canon, HP, others (ref. Consumer Reports). Note ink refill is about the price of the printer -- a marketing trick!
