corporate greed technology

Al L., Amazon
29 May 2014
  • Summary: I own the XP-310 Epson printer, not this model. However, there is some corporate greed technology in the XP-310 that is most likely in all of their printers. I actually really liked my Epson printer until it came time to replace the ink cartridges.

Great printer. DO NOT 'upgrade' to the artisan 50 from this printer

g. johnston "g. johnston", Amazon
11 April 2014
  • Summary: Epson will tell you that the Artisan 50 is a newer version of the R280. It is simply a crappier version. In fact, 'crappier' does not begin to explain how horrible the Artisan 50 is. The R280 is a wonderful printer, stick with this model.

Item not as advertised

Mike Greene, Amazon
28 December 2013
  • Summary: Although the item was advertised and listed as new, it is/was not new. The outside showed fairly extreme signs of use and the installed ink cartridges were almost completely expended - i.e., less than 10 percent remaining. No way to tell if these were the originally-installed cartridges.

Aviod like the plague

chris cameron, Amazon
9 March 2013
  • Summary: PIECE OF JUNK. It uses six ink cartridges and if you are running low of a color like cyan it will not print black and white. I am in a jam and just trying to print a simple document and Epson will not let me print unless I buy a new Cyan cartridge.

FLAWLESS

Peter, Amazon
10 December 2012
  • Summary: This printer is a god. If you need high quality color prints on a WHOLE MESS of mediums (PVC card, CD, etc) this is the printer for you. If using for creating personal ID badges, the pigment ink adheres to special inkjet PVC cards and makes them virtually waterproof.

No one honored warranty

Robert A. Zelkovsky, Amazon
11 August 2012
  • Summary: I have used Epson for many years, usually reliable. I bought this printer from Amazon but through a third party. I did not know this was a discontinued item. Six months later product failed and no one will honor warranty. I am stuck buying a new printer.

Good Printer

Marie Daniels, Amazon
2 February 2012
  • Summary: I've read a lot of negative reviews on this product and don't understand why. I bought the Epson R280 from Amazon on September 2010 and its still working great. People need to understand that printers do different things and as such this one is great for printing on DVD's & CD's.

Nice printer. Works perfectly.

Kenneth Marcum "Harley Man", Amazon
12 January 2012
  • Summary: Wow, a lot of one star reviews. Sorry to those folks for their trouble. I have nothing bad to say about this photo printer. We've had it since 2008 and have had no problems with it what-so-ever. Four years and still going strong!! It produces sharp, top quality pictures if you use top quality paper.

DO NOT BUY!!! SAVE MONEY AND HEADACHES!

Shefeline, Amazon
2 November 2011
  • Summary: Worst printer ever!!! After barely 2 months of very occasional and light use, it stopped recognizing as original the ink cartridges IT CAME WITH (obviously original Epson, which were working just fine last week). None of them are empty as I hardly used the printer.
