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 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'm only writing the negative review simply bc the 3rd party I purchased this from through Amazon totally scammed me. Do not purchase products from The Tech Guys. Totally left me hanging and if it wasn't from the protection the the A-Z guarantee I would have been out $1645 Buyer bewarned. On the flip side, this printer is perfect for printing screen printing separations using wasatch rip software.
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: 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.
Epson's always clog and cost you money - what a bunch of crooks.

Summary: I am a pro who owned a 4000, a 7600, and now a 4800. Do not buy an Epson. They are the biggest clogging machines I have ever seen/owned. If you don't use them for a day, it will clog. I just ran 7, yes7! cleaning cycles and it's still clogged - Epson loves this because it consumes gobs of ink, which is where they make their money. If it's running well and performs an auto clean, it will clog after it. Turn the auto clean off, and surprise, it runs anyway..
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!
Summary: This is the second Epson all in one printer we've owned. We owned HP deskjets until purchasing our first Epson. We needed the scan feature, and thought it would be cool to have a new printer so we opted for our first all in one from Epson. Well it worked fine out of the box, then the ink ran out. We replaced the cartridges and the printer wouldn't print. We cleaned the heads several times only to use up the ink, and it still wouldn't print.
