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: My ebay purchase was new, so no problems there, the printer works well, and i love the wireless network, now the kids can print without turning on the main computer located in my room, the wife and I now have peace, well kinda.
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: This printer functions exactly as advertised. The size and look of the printer fits any modern decor, from the office to the den. Setup requires the use of a USB cable, which is thoughtfully provided in the package. Setup is straightforward and operation is slick. Definately worth the price.
