Summary: this is one of the worst decision I have made , very expensive told one thing get it home does not do the one thing I bought it for, very poor setup instructions on line does not answer questions.
Excerpt: 1. does not print, 2. feeds multiple blank pages between printed pages. 3. will print 2 to 3 pages then put out up to 15 blank pages. 4. does not pull paper 5. pulls paper 1/4 way then stops The most frustrating printer we have ever owned. You must hit the paper feed button after each blank page to continue with printing. 1 star only because when it finally prints it is beautiful.
Excerpt: I had bought this printer because of the alleged versatility and was disappointed. I consider it a lemon. If I print anything other than 24 lb bond paper, the paper feeder balks every 2-3 sheets and spits out a blank. I wanted the printer primarily to print small batches of post cards. Followed the directions found on the Epson creative website to the letter. The printer does not cooperate and the Epson tech support has no knowledge of their own website suggestions.
Cons: Excessive Self-diagnosis, Paper Feeder Is Skittish, Too much ink used, Unreliable
Excerpt: I purchased this due to great reviews, but was very dispapointed when it arrived. This thing is HUGE, which wouldn't be a deal breaker by itself, but worth mentioning. I also purchased it for the wireless capabilities, but it does not come with the neccesary cables to initiat the setup process so you can use it wirelessly. Yes, you need cables that it does not come with so you can use it without cables : (.
Cons: Had To Purchase A Cable, Hard Setup, Hard To Use, Large Footprint, Slow Print Time, Tech Support Not Helpful
Summary: I am an Apple dealer and I purchased one of these units for myself directly from the Epson online store to do some poster and over-sized photo printing. I have now been shipped three printers and every one of them have arrived damaged. It has now been a month and I still don't have a working printer. It has been years since I have recommended Epson's products to my customers because they have always been such quirky pieces of equipment as opposed to HP's products.
Summary: I bought this printer for graphic printing, not for photos, and I print on matte paper, so I don't need the gloss optimizer, but there isn't any way for me to opt out of using that, as far as I can tell. My print settings and printer dialogue box do not look like the one in the booklet and that option isn't given.
