The most frustrating printer I've ever purchased

KC, Amazon
5 May 2007
  • Summary: Sure, the quality of the prints are great and the ability to print onto CDs/DVDs is awesome - *IF* you can get the printer to feed the CD/DVD tray or good quality paper. I purchased this printer about 8 months ago and it started acting up after the first few months... now it's a giant, frustrating paperweight - Sitting on my desk, mocking me. It's not like I don't feed it plenty (and I mean PLENTY) of ink whenever it's hungry. Ungrateful little printer...

This printer sucks

Robert Levitt, Amazon
30 April 2007
  • Summary: I had the R220 and it was better then the 340. With the 340 the CD/DVD tray sticks. If I don't push it in myself it will get stuck and give me an error. Don't buy this printer.

Okay on printing directly on DVD/CD so far

T. K. K. HO, Amazon
23 November 2006
  • Summary: When you're planning to print directly onto DVD/CD, open the cover and watch where you're pushing that DVD/CD tray into. There's this very fragile and thin piece of clear plastic at the leading end of the DVD/CD tray. If you insert the tray all the way to where the arrow is, the clear plastic actually sit completely under the roller. If you are not careful, over time you might bend or damage the clear plastic.

Difficult to load CDs and DVDs without error.

Barrie G. Britton, Amazon
5 October 2006
  • Summary: I bought the R340 to print CDs and DVDs only. If the disc loads correctly, the printer does a magnificent job, but as several other useres have noted, getting it to load is an arduous undertaking. The trick for proper loading is this: after you send the CD/DVD print file to the printer, the feed mechanism will push the tray back out about a quarter of an inch.

Disappointing junk

Ad Girl, Amazon
24 August 2006
  • Summary: I have owned and loved Epson printers for over 10 years. They have all printed amazingly well, on anything I asked them and held up extremely well, except for my last one, the C86 which died after 13 months. However the R340 is an enormous disappointment. It no longer prints well on many types of stock that the other Epsons did - including certain types of coated stock or photo paper.

  • Summary: Ein Gebrauchtgerät wurde mit Software geliefert. Mit Farbdruck bin ich zufrieden gewesen. Also, für den Farbdruck würde ich "1a" bewerten. Weil es Gebrauchtgerät war, sollte Druckerkopf gecheckt werden.
