Epson Stylus C84.

member74162, Ebay
8 November 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this printer,because the C84 I was using was flashing a message stating that,operating life of the computer had expired. The item I purchased was to replace this unit. It never worked,and in days I junked it. It was listed as replaced stock from NASA offices. I have since purchased an Epson R280,and it works fine. The ability to warn the user that a unit is about to malfunction,raises many questions.

Good when new, but don't buy used

maintman50, Ebay

  • Summary: I owned a brand new one and the photo quality was exellent, but when the print heads get plugged you mught as well throw the whole printer away. I wouldn't believe any one who is selling a used one because they do print very well or they wouldn't be selling it. Unless you can see it print stay away from used ones. The ink is very expensive, but then again it prints some beautiful pictures.

Pile of Junk - AVOID -

Jacob N. Messinger "Prof Jake", Amazon
12 July 2007
  • Summary: Out of the 4 of these that we bought ALL 4 DIED within a year. It seems once that jam 1 time, they always complain of no ink even when you put new ink in. I later read about a class action suit against them specific to this problem. We could have gotten some small $ back, but it wasn't worth it. We threw em away. Also, please ignore the 1 5 star review below this one. The guy can't even spell ca(r)tridge, and we WERE using only Epson cartridges.

Ink sucking, nozzle clogging crap!

skibaja, Ebay
3 May 2007
  • Summary: I'm on my second C84, first replaced under warranty. You CAN'T print black only...sucks all colors printing black. Computer chips on the ink carts calculate of prints runs then shut down, indicating "empty" when 60% full. Major INK HOG: it will use 1/3 of a cart performing head-cleaning... which it does at every start-up. You will have to run a head clean 2-3 times every time you use it. Epson Tech Support - a JOKE! DO NOT BUY THIS HUNK OF CRAP!!!

ink hog

Eric "Eric", Amazon

  • Summary: This printer uses far too much ink, won't print when any cartridges are empty, and as others have noted, will indicate that cartrdiges are empty when they still have ink in them. A total ripoff.

Piece of JUNK!

mtatusov, Ebay
10 November 2006
  • Summary: I got this printer to use for school. Most things are online these days so my printing was pretty minimal. I'd say I printed about 10-20 pages per month. This piece of junk went through two black cartridges ($30 a piece) and then quit printing completely. No amount of cleaning or alligning would fix the problem. I have no warranty or receipt because it was a gift. Total use time: about 8mo.

  • Summary: This printer worked fine for about 3-4 months. Then it just stopped printing. No amount of head cleaning would fix it. I also beleive the ink is excessively priced. Save your money.

Absolute Piece of JUNK! DO NOT BUY!

C. Jebe, Amazon
21 April 2006
  • Summary: I've had the printer a little over 2 years now and have replaced all the ink cartridges at least 4 times (and I hardly ever print photos on this machine, just basic documents with a few color graphics here and there). It sucks ink like there's no tomorrow. I also just bought a brand new black ink cartridge because it told me I was out of ink-so I installed it, and now the black ink will not print at all!

JUNK!!!! - Too bad there is no option for zero stars

S. Murphy, Amazon
16 April 2006
  • Summary: Same story as many of the other reviewers. I am a graphics professional, I know how to care for my printers. Thankfully, we received this printer for free with the purchase of a Mac powerbook. It's been a year-and-a-half, maybe two years... now the print heads are clogged and won't be cleaned. Avoid this printer unless you're into buying a new one every 18-24 months. Sure, the quality is good while it lasts. IT DOESN'T LAST VERY LONG.
