Epson is a joke buy Canon unless you need the CD TRAY
15 January 2013
Summary: The Devils at Epson are being revealed! This little joker has lots of profit potential for Epson, since it has "chips in the ink" to make the printer have fits if you don't bleed $$$$ into it to keep it clean & running . (LOOK UP SPIKE CLEANING FOR YOUR MODEL) also learn to "reset" your ink cart with the SECRET RESET pin hole hidden on each cartridge. Look on Youtube for this info, before chucking them. The CD tray gets "bent" up so buy a new one occasionall.
Summary: Produces excellent photo prints when using Epson ink and paper. I just hope I can get near that quality with generics because it is pointless to spend so much on Epson's inks and paper when you can get your prints so much cheaper at a photo lab. If you've got plenty of money to burn, you'll be happy with the results you get from this printer. My advice, though, would be to find something that consumes less ink.
Summary: I bought this printer on 14th December. It is January 7th and already out of ink. I've printed less than 50 text pages and about 5 photos although the photos are excellent. Everytime I print something it cleans the heads and the indicated tank level drops by about 10%. All six of the tanks have dropped by the same amount so its not from printing. Do I spend $120 on the larger inks so that it has clean heads for a whole month or find a different printer?
