ink cartridge issues

L. R. in So Cal, Amazon
1 June 2013
  • Summary: I doubt I will ever buy another Epson product again. There are too many issues with ink cartridges needing replacement after very little time or useage on my CX4800. Also hate the sneaky and annoying little feature that stops you from printing or copying anything in black and white even if you have...

Consistently poor color quality

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 April 2011
  • 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.

Fair quality, but not economical

DutchFSU, Amazon
16 November 2009
  • Summary: We have owned this printer for a few years now. We print occasionally at best, and my wife prints a few photos and high quality stuff here and there. But we seem to tear through ink pretty frequently. And just today I had to replace all three color inks when they were still half full.

Either print or copy...

Meredith L. Ciaburri, Amazon
23 September 2009
  • Summary: My Epson CX4800 gets stuck on Copy mode and then can not go back into Printer mode. It will be plugged into the computer and just doesn't recognize the USB connection. When you can get it to work, the print quality is good (but slow). Copier quality is good, but only have two options: color or b&w.

print head clogs

garyd, Amazon
20 September 2009
  • 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. It would have been cheaper to buy another printer

EPSON name is synonymous with greed. Troublesome Printer!

I. M. ForTruth, Amazon
20 September 2009
  • 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.

Ink sucker

Amazon Customer, Amazon
13 September 2007
  • Summary: Good looking output, and a inexpensive printer...but by the time you keep it fed, it is not inexpensive. The ink ends up costing you more than the money you saved...

wouldn't suggest this

A. Kaligotla, Amazon
29 June 2007
  • Summary: the scanner works really good...but if you do not use the printer for a while, it says you are out of ink and have to replace the cartridges...not a really good 'all-in-one'!

Printing and ink causes nightmares after frequent use. Scanner is the only quality thing about this product.

Cathryn E. Craig, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • Summary: I've had this printer for nearly two years. The photo quality prints I did for class were lovely at first, but they started to get streaky and I had to clean the head a lot. The ink is a nightmare and runs out very quickly and is not worth the price to replace!

I regret buying this.

S. A. Farley, Amazon
29 January 2007
  • 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.
