Summary: I have had this printer for a year or so and just recently the black ink cartridge ran out (colors were fine because I never use them, and refuse to pay the crazy amount for 5 different color cartridges). Anyway, long story short, even though my printer is set in Black Ink Only mode, it REFUSES to let me print anything whatsoever because one of the color cartridges is too low. What a ripoff.
Summary: If you like a printer that has to think for about 5 minutes before printing out a job (all the while making an annoying series of noises), than this is the printer for you. Another irritating feature is that if you run out of yellow ink, it won't allow you to print, even though what you're printing is black and white and doesn't involve any use of yellow ink. Speaking for myself, I'd rather have a printer that didn't feel the need to make decisions for me.
Summary: I could not believe it when I read other reviews, that the printer will refuse to print Black & white if one of the 5 color cartridges runs out of ink. All of my other printers (HP, Samsung, Lexmark) will print B&W even if the color ink runs out. And because there's 5 color inks, I frequently have 1 of them run out, and the printer will not use just the black ink cartridge to print B&W.
Summary: I ordered this and was provide a anticipated delivery date. After the anticipated date went by, I sent an inquiry email to find out when it was going to ship. I had to write three time over two weeks to secure a reply. I did redceive the product and it was packaged in a very poor way. Internal printer was damaged. Luckily I was able to retro fit with my old printer. ALso the printer heads were all clogged and needed to be cleaned.
Summary: I own one I got it for Free when I bought My Camera...Yeah. It may have good features, BUT it doesn't do anything very well. The photos aren't worth the money you spend on the paper you print it on. Yeah. Plus it is SOOOOOOOOOOO SLOOOOOOWWWWWWWW[...] even when just printing a black text on on like a word document. In Addition, *ALWAYS CHECK HOW MUCH IT COSTS TO BUY THE INK CARTRIDGES!* To refill all the colors PLUS just 1 black. For Prices on Refills go to... [...
My first review ever -- because this product is truly the worst of the worst

Summary: Here's the scenario. Late at night trying to print a DVD label for a gift for a friend flying to Europe in the morning. Just loaded new black ink cartridge that had run empty - Epson cartridge, not a knock-off. Other colors are low but show 10%. Repeated attempts to print, but no black ink coming out, even though the maintenance utility shows a full cartridge. Use Epson's on-line troublshooter; no options for my scenario. Useless.
Summary: I bought this printer to replace my Epson 890 which I've used for over five years with no problems. I wanted a printer that printed on DVD's. It worked alright for one month and then jammed and never worked again. Other people have complained about this same problem so it's some type of defect in the design. I've had to go back to my old 890. Most of the new Epson printers cost more than $100 for a full set of ink cartridges which is crazy for a consumer model printer.
Summary: The photo prints are good, but the first set of ink cartidges ran out quickly. I had no idea that a new pack of cartridges runs about $70!!! 3 packs will cost more than the price of the printer! I tried 3rd party cartridges and the printer refuses to use them. I'm disappointed with Epson's high ink costs and forced lock in. I plan to NEVER purchase another Epson product again.
Summary: after just less than a year this printer is calling for ink. replaced all ink w no help still has the red ink light on and will not print. call epson support. "our next rep will answer your call in 49 min." bull tried everything, reinstall sw.
