Doesn't print at all if one of four cartridges is low.

Summary: Will not print at all if any of the cartridges are low. Absolute trash. One lonely perk: installation of software on Mac is easy and the printer profile features make gathering info easy. Since the printer doesn't work, the perk's perkiness is moot.
Will never buy another Epson printer after going through the 3800 and 4800!

Summary: Do NOT buy these products! When I bought my current PC, I got a CX3800 with it. Wasn't but a year or so into having it and three sets of cartridges later that I realized what a piece of crap I had. Like everyone else, my heads all clogged up and then I "drained" another set of cartridges trying to clean them. Finally had enough, so I called "customer service" and after going through the headache of dealing with them, they finally sent me my current piece of crap CX4800.
EPSON will steal your money with this awful machine. Customer service is WORST, DO NOT BUY EPSON!!!

Summary: This is the second EPSON product I buy. I didn't learn my lesson the first time. First printer stopped working, customer service told me to buy another one and they would give me a great discount. I got another model, newer and what I thought would be a better model, WRONG!!! After only a year or more this printer is NOT working anymore. Keeps giving me an E message for ERROR.
Summary: I am also one who has to maintain this printer in a lab for students. Sometimes I think the thing is possessed. It doesn't even work by the adage garbage in garbage out. Sometimes it will randomly kick out a full sheet of paper with nothing on it. Sometimes it will print half of an image.
Summary: I read most of the one star reviews, and my review is the same as theirs. Same problems as everyone else. Ink runs out ($40 to replace) like I am printing tons of pages, and I just replaced the black ink because it told me it ran out- and now it won't print black and white documents because the three color cartridges are "empty" Bull! BUY ANOTHER BRAND EPSON=GARBAGE!!! This is the third Epson printer I have had issues with. They DID replace one for free, but come on.
Summary: I hardly use the printer, but it seemed everytime I wanted to use it it asked for Ink. I bought 2 packs worth $30 each in last 1 year and I hardly printed 15-20 pages, I don't know what to say, but i'm going to put it for Trash next Wednesday...
Summary: OK.. I am not a photo professional so probably the quality of the prints is top of the line. But for a regular guy who has to babysit one of these in a school lab I find it to be a source of constant frustration. It is very finicky with how to load different sizes of paper. It works slowly, it buzzes, clicks and whirs and generates lots of errors. It needs 8 different cartridges of very expensive ink (over $70 each, OEM) at all times.
Summary: This printer broke before I could refill the ink. My sister had one and it did the same thing. I now have a Brother Laser All-in-one and the HP Photosmart 2700 and no problems. Epson quality is very poor. Stick with Brother, Samsung, or HP.
Summary: This printer seemed ok for a few months, then the first ink cartridge ran out. Found out that you could not print with any empty ink cartridges. That doesn't sound too bad until you hear this: I NEVER printed a color picture on this printer, yet after about 9 months, ALL THREE color cartridges ran out of ink. Even though I had a brand new black cartridge, I could not print even in black and white!
