Not a single decent print

lgramlich, CNET
30 May 2013
  • Summary: Waste of money and time. Haven't printed ONE good photo in over 2 years now. Searching online for help is an endless loop of non-information.
  • Pros: Holds down the table well. Good for stacking paperwork on. Would probably work well as a paperweight or doorstop. Quiet since I never use it.
  • Cons: Colors come out both wrong and hyper-saturated, despite monitor calibration. Ink monitor takes about a week to recognize when a cartridge has been replaced. Not only are prints bad, the expensive ink ensures that they're pricey, too.

A banding nightmare

Alan, Amazon
9 November 2011
  • Summary: I had high hope for this printer but turns out no amount of head cleaning and realignment can resolve the horizontal banding which gets worse toward both ends of every photo paper. I looked up the service manual which states it is a known problem and the top 1.58in and the bottom 1.7in of any page is affected. Such design should never enter production. Totally unacceptable for photo printing.

INK !!!!!

Chuck, Amazon
1 January 2011
  • Summary: I have this product. The Ink level magically goes down even if you dont use it. Once one of the magical ink levels hits zero ... your printer is useless. EVEN if you want to print text black and white and have plenty of black ink. If you dont have color ink levels above zero you can not print PERIOD. INK LEVEL go down without use. I have a FULL black ink. I have not been able to print in black and white because of the color ink. I did not by the color ink.

Do NOT buy this printer

David O'Brien, Amazon
4 September 2010
  • Summary: I've owned this printer for over a year and it has given me nothing but problems. Not sure where to start. You have to run the head cleaner ALL the time. If it sits idle for a week or more it will spit out bad quality, misaligned prints. You have to always run the head cleaner to get anything decent. and this uses up ink. INK!!! I have spend HUNDREDS in ink on this thing. It is amazing, I feel like I just do a few prints and suddenly it is blinking and wants ink again.

Epson 1400 - a piece of Junk

John D. Kinne "JdK", Amazon
21 August 2010
  • Summary: I was very happy with the Epson 1400 for the 1st several months I owned it. In spite of the expensive inks I was getting wonderful results, and really enjoyed the large 13"x19" prints. The printer had an easy life, I printed about 100 photos with it. I use a Canon for documents. Unfortunately at the beginning of this month, the 1400's lights began blinking and the printer stopped printing.

Constant banding troubles - infuriating & pricey!

Her Royal Majesty "hot to dance", Amazon
30 May 2010
  • Summary: Granted, the Epson 1400 makes nice prints, it is a rare occurrence for me. After hours of head cleaning, test printing, running copies that appear w banding the Utility finally demands a replacement cartridge. I had 4 cartridges that were at various levels of low. To save time I could've just replaced them all but the Utility was telling me I could make 70 more similar copies.

Bad, Bad,Terrible customer service

Devon Johnston "Artist - Photographer", Amazon
15 November 2009
  • Summary: I've had this printer for a year now. I have bought Epson Ink Jet printers ever since the first one came out, and the quality and amount of ink needed has gotten worse with each new generation. I would presume greed has taken over and it is more about money than quality. I find myself using it less and less as I can barely print ten pictures before I'm looking at buying new ink jet cartridges.

DON"T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY

Melisa H. Pierce, Amazon
17 January 2009
  • Summary: This printer was such a disappointment. I returned the Epson 1400 because the quality was awful and I couldn't get the colors right no matter what adjustments I did. I have always been a fan of HP but I had read reviews for the 1400 and got it instead. What a disappointment. I returned it and bought the HP 8550 and it is best purchase I have made since my Nikon D50. I printed a borderless 13x19 and the quality is better than anything I have had professionally printed.
