Summary: If you like to use lots of ink cleaning your nozzles whenever you don't use the printer for a few days this is the printer for you. You can expect to spend about 40.00 just for black ink replacements and because the head cleaning takes a great deal of ink everytime you will need to buy more ink than you would if you used a printer that didn't clog so much. I bought this on the recommendation of someone and wish that I hadn't.
Summary: First negative: There is a light buzzing noise that occurs after printing something. Its get quite annoying after a while. Second: Although I just printed out several files in which the black came out just fine I am getting a notice that the black is out and I must replace. It will not let me print out anything else until i replace the black ink. Maybey not the biggest negatives but if i could go back I wouldnt purchase it again.
Summary: The quality of the printer is good but compared to same quantum of printing on my hp 9800, i was required to change my ink every week...and the ink is very expensive and requires five cartridges which cannot be refilled (maybe there is a way but the label indicates otherwise and the two companies that normally refill my ink says it cannot be done). Not an economical buy but really a strain on my pocket. The replacement cartridges were more than the cost of the printer!
Summary: This printer might be inexpensive but the ink is not, and you will go through a lot of it... quicker than usual! Add to that the amount of ink you go through trying to unclog the heads, which happens pretty often. I wish I hadn't bought this printer.
Beware of the Epson Workforce 1100 Printer - Ink Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

Summary: Greetings Everyone, It has been six months since I got this Epson Workforce 1100 printer and I'm ready to pack it up, drive to an Epson Store, and return it by smashing it down on their front door step. You remember that Discount Tire commercial where the old lady returns a tire through the store's front window, well that is my feeling now with my Epson 1100 after six months of use.
Summary: First, be aware that the Workforce 1100 is a four-color printer, not a photo printer, and none of my comments reflect any expectation that it should produce output that looks like a photo printer. I expressly buy four-color printers so as to best simulate the four-color offset printing processes (i.e.: a printing press) which the art I create in Adobe Illustrator will eventually be reproduced as.
