Dies soon... Good while alive.

Amazon
16 March 2007
  • Summary: I have had my Epson Stylus C86 since Feb. 2005. (About 2 years) However, suddenly it refuses to print. All the printer does is spit out blank sheets of white paper with no black text. After replacing ink cartridges and spending a lot of money, I am going to switch.

Nothing But Trouble ...

J. Jacobs, Amazon
2 October 2006
  • Summary: I had to exchange my C86 w/Epson within 9 months. No matter what they had me do to try and 'fix' my problem, it still wouldn't print correctly. I've had the replacement for less than 6 months and the heads are clogged!

Printed great until . . .

  • 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.

Won't print in B&W unless you buy color ink

Kristy A. Sketeris, Amazon
9 November 2005
  • Summary: I had generally been very happy with this printer, until I discovered that it won't print in black & white unless your three color cartridges are also filled. There is no override for this "feature".

My Epson Experience - BEWARE!

prodesma, Amazon
29 October 2005
  • Summary: I would strongly urge anybody that is considering an Epson printer to be cautious. Although I certainly do not EXPECT your experience to be the same as mine, as an active consumer I wish to convey my frustrations with Epson care/service/support.

  • Summary: Printer worked great at first, but ink clogged in the printer heads. Cleaning couldn't fix it, so Epson sent me a new one. Same thing happened to the new one, heads clogged again.

Spotty photo performance

KAZMAN, Amazon
31 August 2005
  • Summary: This printer works well sometimes if you use the costly Durabrite paper. Its nozzles clog frequently and Epson's drivers for Mac OS X are horrible. If you're patient enough and are willing to go through lots of supplies, this printer is capable of making good prints.

Not a good choice for infrequent users.

library beader, Amazon
7 February 2005
  • Summary: Epson's DuraBrite inks print beautifully, I have to admit, and the printer itself is quiet and fast. However, the reasonable price and colorfast pigment inks are offset by horrendous clogging problems and high usage for the (really not effective) print head cleaning cycles.

  • Excerpt: Ich habe den Drucker vor ca. 3 Jahren gekauft und nach einem Jahr entsorgt, da der Tintenverbrauch sehr hoch war (v.a. durch das ständige Reinigen der Patronen). Zunächst hatte ich keine Probleme, doch als ich den Drucker länger als ein- bis zwei Wochen nicht gebraucht habe, waren die Patronen...
