Summary: I just got this printer so I cannot claim how durable it is yet, but from what I can tell- it is easy to use, fast, and seems sturdy. I have owned two all-in-one printers in the past and they have been flimsier and more complicated (and eventually had many mechanical complications as well).
Summary: I left the company of the hapless sheep who stick with HP because they are 'HP'. Got tired of one color of ink running out and having to replace them all. I went to Epson printers a long time ago and have been very happy with my decision.
Summary: My wife is a quilter and likes to attach a written history cloth label on the back of the her quilts. The Epson WorkForce 40 was selected because it was wireless and appeared to be ably to print on cloth. Happily it did print on the cloth flawlessly and has become my wife's primary printer.
Summary: Okay...let's get this out of the way. Printers today are, well...consumable. Yep. You read that right. They're basically consumable, disposable loss-leaders designed for 1 sole purpose, and it isn't printing. It's to sell overpriced, under-performing ink to the masses.
Summary: Not worth the non-discounted price. Good value at the discounted price.
Pros: * Fast printing * Excellent image quality * Wireless is convenient
Cons: * From what I found in my short search, the configuration tools are Windows-only. I had to pull out the ol' dual-boot to get it up and running. * This thing is VIOLENT. It prints fast, but it prints loud and hard.
Summary: I have used a fair number of inkjet printers, both home/personal models and office models, from Lexmark, HP, and Epson for about 20 years. I gave up on the HPs early because most of them are designed to roll the paper sharply over a roller, which causes me problems with the card stock and some label...
Summary: Something to be aware of when using ink jet printers... I think I left the printer on for too long and dried up the ink. It still registered there was plenty of ink left, but it just wouldn't print right. Tried running the head cleaning and alignment several times with little to no effect.
Pros: I don't care too much about print quality, but it seems to print images well. I really enjoy the wireless capability, but I guess wireless printers are becoming more common now anyhow.
Cons: Had a little trouble following the wireless network install. I'm not too keen on the setup utility. It works though, so it's not that big a deal. The print head movement is a little loud, and causes the printer to shake a lot. Definitely a good idea to keep the printer on a solid surface.
