Summary: Worst printer I have ever owned. Error messages every time I changed one of the FIVE ink cartridges. Plus, if one ink cartridge is out of ink the printer will not work. You cannot print or scan (even to your computer-which uses zero ink) until the ink cartridge is replaced. Horrible!!
Summary: I purchased one of these a little over a year ago and while it was an ink gobbler (as stated in many other reviews) it worked fine for almost 8 months. Then one day, I couldn't get anything to print in black. I went through all of the diagnostic procedures in the user guide, but none of these resolved the problem. I even tried replacing the black ink cartridge - still no luck. I then decided to call Epson support for assistance with the problem.
Summary: The first few months with this printer were fine. Six months after we purchased it with minimal use (printing 2x's/day max) it's having issues reading the ink cartridges. It stopped printing at one point for weeks on end. Finally got it working again and it wants the barely used color cartridges replaced because it's not able to read the sensors. We regret all the money we've put into ink cartridges for this printer. We will never purchase another Epson product again.
Summary: This printer never worked properly - the print heads constantly clog and need cleaning, which then drains about 10% of the ink per clean and then doesn't work anyway Changing the ink (with genuine Epson ink) can still generate errors and the printer doesn't recognize the cartridge and refuses to do anything making you get another new ink cartridge!!
Excerpt: We've only had this printer for 6 months and we are replacing it already. We use it for personal printing- a decent amount of color documents, but not a ton of photos. I feel like we go through ink faster than I can blink. After the sample cartridges were gone we started having issues with the black cartridge and the printer not recognizing it. The printer will not print if any one of the 5 cartridges are out- so not even black & white printing.
Pros: Easy to Use
Cons: Does Not Meet Expectations, Quality, ink cartridges
Summary: Stopped working after 6 months of very light use. Does not print if any of the ink colors are low even if your printing project does not require the ink color that is low. This might be great for ink sales but is not helpful when you need to get a project done. I will be going back to HP!
Summary: This is my first review on any product. This printer was so terrible, I felt this review was a must! I purchased this product in June of 2015. By November customer service had replaced it three times. After the initial ink from the manufacturer runs out the printer no longer prints black. I used only the correct Epson-600 ink cartridges. I did all the proper head cleaning/alignments.
If I was as bad at breathing as this printer is at printing, I would have been dead forty years ago

Summary: Similar issues to Curt. Roughly every 100 pages something goes wrong, partial printouts or ink cartridge fails or something else. And you can't print black and white only unless you have each type of color cartridge, and there are quite a few. Really disappointing because there's a lot to like here if it didn't fail in its primary function.
Summary: This printer EATS ink...worse yet, Epson electronically chips the ink cartridges to indicate they are over well before they really are. You cannot shake the cartridge and re-install...once the chip shows the cartridge is over, that's it! ALSO it would not allow me to print black and white if my cyan is over! WTF?! This printer is designed to lure you in with great features then shake you down on ink. I replaced my black ink it seems after 100 pages 2x!
Summary: This printer lasted about eight months and quit printing. Customer service had me do several cartridge cleaning cycles which emptied two large capacity black ink cartridges and all the color cartridges. Epson sent a replacement (refurbished) printer new ink cartridges which did not work when a test page was printed (almost no black print and spotty cyan) right out of the box.
