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.
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.
Pros: Occasionally printed an image that didn't suck.
Cons: 1st one died after printing about 10 sheets of paper. 2 months later a new one arrived on warranty. Since then it has been a never ending cycle of costly ink cartridges and failed print heads, and sporadic connectivity issues.
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.
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.
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.
