Why is there no zero star or worse rating? This scam product would deserve it

Amazon Customer, Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: The printer "uses" ink even though the muzzle did not let a single drip through. I hoped to clean the black nozzle by printing large black boxes. Well, the paper stayed nicely white but the ink was "out" after a few pages and the printer refused to continue without having the cartridge replaced. [...

Cheap, but have fun spending $$$$$ on ink!!!

Coretana, Amazon
20 February 2009
  • Summary: I bought this a few years ago because I thought it had decent reviews, but little did I know! The photo printing leaves something to be desired, it was grainy and ugly, I've seen better on cheaper printers (this was around $200 when I bought it). The absolute worst part that just embitters me is the fact that the ink comes in the normal 6-color separation, and they run out at different times, even in grayscale!!!

The Worst Printer I Have Ever Owned

John H. Meyer, Amazon
10 May 2008
  • Summary: I was in the desktop publishing business in the 1980s. Companies sent us their printers for evaluation. Since that time I have used or reviewed dozens of printers. Two years ago, a client gave me the Epson R260 so I could print on inkjet-printable DVDs that I was delivering to him. The one piece of good news is that, when it works, the Epson R260 makes beautiful prints on DVD discs. That is the ONLY good news. In every other respect, this is a horrible printer.

Horrible Product

R. Lehrer, Amazon
14 April 2008
  • Summary: This product is a racket. Not only does it eat up ink at an incredibly fast speed when printing black and white word docs or photos but it won't let you print in black and white if one of the color ink cartridges is empty. I am continually buying ink for this printer, and if you're like me and print a lot of black and white documents you'll be very unpleasantly surprised when you're color ink gets eaten up by black and white prints.

prints nice but uses too much expensive ink

S. Kane, Amazon
11 April 2008
  • Summary: If you've been reading the reviews, then you've started to notice a pattern: pros: 1. great print quality. 2. can print on disc media. 3. good paper handling (i.e. handles thicker paper stock). cons: 1. ink is very expensive and this printer uses lots of it. 2. heads clog and require head cleaning/priming which consumes additional ink (even for heads that aren't clogged). 3. printer is physically large. 4. the printer is loud when it is printing. 5.

Epson has scammed it's customers again

Schroeder (Cult Movies Magazine), Amazon
7 April 2008
  • Summary: Do not buy this printer!!!! This printer will not accept ANY generic ink, it will only accept ORIGINAL EPSON INK. This refers to the Model Epson Stylus Photo R260 made after May of 2007. How low can a company go by doing this? Oh i forgot, it's Epson. I have researched this & thousands have had the same complaint. This printer eats up ink like crazy also!! Any chance it gets to clean it self, initialize etc it will do & in doing so it eats up the ink like crazy.
