Summary: Epson is facing a class action suit in LA Superior Court. Seriously, check it out. You may be due some money. I recently got notice of this by mail from a law firm. Good!! this product stinks! The civil suit revolves around fraudulant ink cartridge performance. Ive owned two of these turkeys.
Summary: This is my third Epson, and with its untimely death I've finally accepted the painful truth: Epson printers produce wonderful results... WHILE THEY WORK. And, unfortunately, they don't work for long. There's a reason Epson is no longer the #1 printer maker.
Summary: I have been through three C86 printers under warrenty all having the same problem clogged head assembly. Cleaned, replaced and ran self tests until the cows did come home and the swell tech support of course stated the obvious " Since it is not under warrenty I can reccomend a service site you can...
Summary: I bought this printer and it printed great (good graphics, crisp text) until it started running low on ink. And then everything other reviewers mentioned happened. I bought new and expensive Epson ink (directly from Epson) and it stopped printing.

Summary: I, like other reviewers, have had problems with these printers. They work fine at first, but eventually stop printing certain colours. I bought two, both developed identical problems, one will not print magenta at all and only prints a partial nozzle pattern in yellow.
Summary: Truly this is a junk printer. I wrote a prior review on how you might extend its life but today it failed for good. It would not recognize the ink. Read a review that was posted that a class action suit is being filed for the ink part. Good.
Summary: We had 5 of these printers and 20 of it's predecessor the C82. Every single one has had the same problem. Eventually it stops printing certain colors. Head cleaning, new cartridges, and manually trying to clean the inside has left us with nothing but piles of junk that we now have to pay to have...
