Summary: Can you say "Don't forget to use all your new ink cartridges to TRY to clear the CLOG?" I now know Epson's customer service stinks. I give up on their less than stellar inks and going to say hello to a non-Epson printer. I am NOT the kind who wants to get out my tools and service this think like a roadside mechanic. Ain't happenin', I'm just sayin'.
Summary: I bought this printer to use in my screen printing shop. It is compatible with software that is essential for burning good screens. The software also allows you to run max black ( run black in all 5 slots) and draws from them all equally resulting in no wasted ink. Bottom line is I was happy to have found this printer on eBay and would have done it again in a heartbeat!
Summary: What a nice printer. It handles all of my small office print needs with its wide format. The main reason I purchased this printer is that there are CIS systems available for it. The CIS are exterrnal bottles that are connected via tubes to the ink cartridges. I use the pigment in as it does not smear when dry. My printing costs are so low that I print everything I care to. Not the case if I weer paying regular price for ink.
Summary: Beware!! This printer works for a short time, then the black stops working & needs Ink head cleaning. In the ink head cleaning you can use a whole cartridge of magenta, cyan or yellow getting the black to work. And it is worse if you miss 3 days of printing, you will use all the ink up in head cleaning just getting it print anything. I have had this printer for 5 months & we have used 8 complete sets of ink cartridges. I am averaging 15 sheets of paper/ 5 days a week.
Summary: I purchased this for my wife to do 12 X 12 scrapbook pages on and it is excellent for that use. There are a lot of great CD's with borders and paterns to use for page layout on Ebay. It also prints text very fast. It will accept non oem carts and ink just buy from a well respected source as poor ink will give unusable photos.
Summary: For the 35 minutes or so that this printer actually functioned it made nice prints. But print heads inexplicably (and repeatedly) jammed. Clearing them involves pumping extra ink through them, so ink cartridges vanished before my very eyes. I finally gave up and replaced it with an HP 7000 Wide Format machine, which is everything this piece of junk is not. Avoid this printer at all costs.
Summary: From time to time I have a need for a large format, 11X17, color printer. In all fairness I am not a fan of any inkjet printer because of the cost of the cartridges and the maintenance required when not used often enough. Prior to buying the Work Force 1100 I had an HP to do the same job. It was okay but at the time I thought it ran through too much ink and HP has notoriously bad drivers for a 64 bit operating system.
