EPSON name is synonymous with greed. Troublesome Printer!

Summary: WHEN it prints it prints beautifully. But rarely does it print at all because one or more of the ink jets is clogged. In fact every Epson printer I've had is a nightmare for this reason. I've had this printer about 6 years and commonly when anyone asks me to print something out my response is usually, "it's not working now.
Summary: This was not new but looks to well taken care of. It prints, scans and copies like a new one and that's all I wanted. After buying ink for my old one it died within 2 pages of replacing the ink so finding one was the problem. Having 7 black and 4 of each of the other three colors I needed to find one of these so as not to just throw the ink away. If this lasts a year I'm happy and then buy new.
Summary: Great printer but do not let the print heads dry out. I had to let me printer set for a few months without using it due to a medical problem. I have have to buy new ink for all eight colors twice trying to clean the heads.
Summary: I've got one of these in a studio I run part time. I've gone through many many 100 foot rolls of 10" and 16" over the years and have hardly had a hiccup out of the printer. The only time I had a problem was user error, I had the wrong paper type selected and got some nasty horizontal banding in the prints. The ink tanks might be spendy but they last a long time. This is a very efficient printer. I will be looking to add one to my personal studio later this year.
Summary: this printer was original equiptment for my pc. I found this will print anything a normal houshold needs it is so easy to refill that my wife can do it it will tell you what kind of paper you should be using.
