A nightmare!

Bernard A. Au "rotor242", Amazon
8 June 2010
  • 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.

Terrible piece of garbage!

Hayley Mackenzie Murphy, Amazon
24 January 2010
  • 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.

hard to use, high maintenance, expensive clunker

Chas, Amazon
27 February 2009
  • 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.

Did not last

Gdaddy, Amazon
7 May 2008
  • 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.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER

  • Summary: Do not buy this printer unless you want headaches and want to waste your time. Epson has a problem and needs to do something about it.
  • Pros: It does print very nice pictures, when and IF it is working right.
  • Cons: Wastes ink. Piddle with it to print. Ink heads dry out or clog constantly.
