WHAT A PIECE OF JUNK!

Bill Carner "Bill Carner", Amazon
19 March 2015
  • Summary: I used an Epson 4800 at work for several years - only because the university wouldn't buy a different brand. It burned through ink like there was hole in the back of it spewing ink onto the wall...and the heads CLOGGED all the time, so I had burn through more ink to clear them if the printer sat idle for as little time as a week.

I had a great printer for 4 months

Destroya, Amazon
29 January 2015
  • Summary: I would give this zero starts if I could. I will never ever buy an Epson product again. I am screaming to anyone who will listen to avoid this corrupt company and all their products. There is clearly an issue with the 4900/7900/9900 printers regarding clogged heads. I am sure Epson knows about this and yet they do nothing. I had a great printer for 4 months, then got sent another one to replace it and then another and then another. 4 printers all died within a year.

Don't waste your money

Adorama
14 December 2014
  • Excerpt: Don't waste your money. The print heads clog pretty much where they feel like it. You will waste ink like Epson planned it that way. You can spend days trying to clean the heads. Support will give you a few things to do that don't work very well. You can get them on the phone at least.If it prints, the prints look great.

Worst printer I've ever owned

Vance, Amazon
19 November 2014
  • Summary: I've had the same problem as most of the Amazon reviewers of this printer. Gradual clogging of the print heads in spite of my printing regularly. In the end the unit I owned failed - not worth getting it repaired (which would include buying a whole new ink set at about $1000). Worst printer I've ever owned. I now have a 120 lb paperweight.

A lemon of a printer

A-Jump Books, Amazon
8 June 2014
  • Summary: Terminal clogs on multiple inks. I have other Epson printers that are fine, including a 9890. The 4900 is expensive, has a huge footprint for a 17" printer, and is useless. Don't buy this printer. Your options are to get a 3880, or, if you need roll paper capabilities, step up to a 7890 or 7900.

A drag

Paul, Amazon
1 June 2014
  • Summary: I was initially happy with the quality of prints coming out of this printer. Unfortunately, as so many other reviewers have stated, the heads clog, and despite multiple cleanings and cleaning methods there is no apparent solution to that problem thus rendering the printer useless, and Epson will do nothing to support the people who paid good money for this piece of junk-they should be ashamed.

Clog clog clog clog clog clog clog.

Precision Pixel Studios, LLC, Amazon
8 May 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this printer at least two years ago. I have wasted far more ink (and time) with efforts of unclogging the nozzles than I have with actual photo or art prints. I have friends with this same printer who have had the same clog-fest experience. Stay away from this junk. I feel foolish for falling for the marketing gimmick stating that clogs are a thing of the past.

Great Quality But No Longevity

Stephen Tosterud, Amazon
15 April 2014
  • Summary: Like so many other people, it was difficult to keep my printer from clogging. Now the heads are clogged and service is required. The cost to repair would be almost as much as I paid for the unit. My 4900 is now a huge, heavy paperweight. It didn't even work long enough to drain any of the ink wells - I've never had to purchase replacement ink, and since it doesn't print at all any more, I never will.
