Epson STYLUS CX3500


The CX3500 distinguishes itself by having four individual ink cartridges rather than one black and one tri-colour. Its ink uses Epson's DuraBrite tech...

Individual ink cartridges, quiet, great print quality

No card reader or PictBridge support, long scan time

A great all-rounder for those on a budget.

easy to use


I bought this 3-in-one Epson STYLUS CX3500 printer three years ago. Mostly it is used at home and I found it is very appropriate for home application. This machine can print, scan and photocopy. The speed is not very high but enough for...

easy to print, copy and scan ; high quality of scanning

the four ink-jets must be working together, any one is insufficient, need to replace

Overall this is a cheap printer that provides average quality printing however for a colour printer it is quite affordable and the scanner function is very useful as well.

It is easy to use and the document scanner is good for making copies of documents and throwing out lots of paperwork.

The sensors on the ink cartridges and the printer are often inaccurate. Sometimes it would tell me that the printer was out of ink and I take the ink out and shake it and it is still near full. This is a fault which is annoying because if it thinks one...

I hate this product. It's a complete waste of money. We hadn't had this much trouble with our old 15-year-old HP printer which still works to this day.

The scanner is meager.

We hardly ever use our 3-year-old epson printer. Now all of a sudden it won't power up. @#$#@%!!! And the ink cartridges are a rip off!

A total scam and a waste of money. Buy another brand.

Scans good.

It's an ink SCAM! The cartridges are expensive and have a chip that arbitrarily decides the cartridge is empty even if it isn't. I only did about 40 pages and hardly any color; the color cartridges seem full, but it says the color is empty and won't...

Consumer review by: jlee.grubb (



I have used Epson printers for a long time with great results. This last purchase has left me VERY disappointed with Epson and will put me off from buying any more products from them for some time. BTW as soon as these last color cartridges are...

Easy to use, software had no glitchs, scans and prints are pretty good quality. Generally a good compact all-in-one for size and function.

This is an ink scam! I have been through 3 sets of color ink cartridges for 4 pages of color prints. Even if you print w/only the b/w setting it "uses" up color ink. The last "empty" cartridges I pulled out sounded (by shaking) just as full as the new...
