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: 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 used this printer for years. At first I noticed several instances of poor quality color reproduction and was disappointed that what I saw on my screen never quite managed to get on paper. Images lost their vibrancy and were simply dulled and somewhat grayed. I noticed this would occur wether I used the all-too expensive Epson ink or generic ink. It was not a major issue for me back then so I tolerated it.
Summary: This printer has been a major disappointment. While the cost for the features seemed great, the ink runs out quickly and printer heads need to be cleaned frequently, thus using even more quickly. The print quality is just plain sad. Photos? Forget it. Even documents do not print with crisp, clean fonts. It's slow, too. I'll avoid pigment ink printers in the future.

Excerpt: Personalmente adquire una impresora de este tipo me parecio excelente en la impresion, pero a la hora de imprimir presenta demasiados problemas cuando se le da la orden de impresion, pues comienza a enviar demasiados mensajes de error: como atasco de papel, papel torcido, falta de tinta de determinado color , el papel no coincide con las medidas . etc...
