Summary: I was just given this printer as a gift. It only had the power cord, so I thought it would connect with my laptop wirelessly. It won't. It didn't come with a USB cable it needs to connect to the computer to be able to print. It's just a worthless hunk of expensive plastic without that cord and I can't find the stupid thing anywhere online. Go with something better. UPDATE! I just got my cord today and plugged it in. Luckily it made the printer work.
Summary: Purchased this unit because I had great luck with my old one. I also had over $80 in ink cartridges for this unit. Unfortunately, I received this, hooked it up and haven't been able to get it to work. Had a computer techy friend of mine look at it and he said he can't find the problem. Keeps telling us there is a paper jam when there is not one.
Summary: Despite very good print performance and quality for the price range, this printer does not last. After less than 2 years of light but regular usage, one change of ink, and less than a single ream of paper, the print head failed. Epson's only answer - Buy another Epson! I don't think so.
Summary: Purchased this printer about a year ago to replace an old HP deskjet. Here'a my experience. Installation was easy. Even worked well with Linux. First 30 or so pages came out great (albeit extremely slow). I was happy with the printer for about 1 week. Then the problems started. The ink cartridges are quite small, and run out quickly. And as everyone knows, ink can be quite costly. Epson is no exception. Also, the print heads seem to get dirty very easily.
Summary: This is my fourth inkjet printer (2 HPs, a Canon and now this Epson)...and the worst I've had. Here are the things that are wrong: Paper loads in the back and is difficult to get loaded quickly and easily...so if you run out of paper during a print job it's a real pain. Goes through ink very quickly. Cartridges are $$ If one of the color inks (the unit has FOUR ink cartridges) runs out, you can't print at all...not even just in black and white.
Summary: I recently purchased the Epson Stylus C66 printer for my personal home use. However, the paper would not feed into the printer. It would pull to the left and jam in the feed repeatedly. I did get it to print a couple sheets but the paper had to positioned exactly to feed through straight. Needless to say, I returned the Epson because the paper jamming was making the printer useless. I have never been a big fan of the top loading printer and now I know why.
I knew it was a cheap printer, but it still fell short.

Summary: I simply bought this cheap printer to print the occasional Word document and web-page. Unfortunately, it can't even do that. From day one it has printed with streaks and banding - despite nozzle-cleaning and other maintenance operations. The paper does not feed through the printer straight - it will consistenly print inconsistently - lines of text will be skewed and forget trying to print anything with precision (like an Avery label-sheet for example) because the printer...
