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.
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'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.
Pros: Great prints! I was thrilled with the 1400 for the 1st several months I owned it. I read others' reviews that it used too much ink. For me it was worth it & I stocked up on ink & Epson paper b/c I really enjoyed the results.
Cons: The "paper sensor" wore out after about 5 months, during which I printed about 100 photos. Epson has sent 2 replacements each with their own problems. Bottom line, I can't print photos because I have an Epson printer.
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.
