Broke after warranty, and low use - 100 prints


I only printed 50-100 sheets of paper in past 2 years, and now it doesn't work. My previous Epson printer worked for 5 years. I was happy with it, which is why I bought this one. I have lost faith in this product and don't plan to buy another Epson.

Quiet, smooth, good scans. Print quality good. Good customer support. Gave me ink refills when I told them of inaccurate "out of ink" messages. Customer service offered me $40.00 towards buying new printer

Paper feeder stopped working. Tech support could not fix over phone. Also stopped working when ink supply was low. Message said ink is empty when it isn't

Excellent value, allows use of low cost substitute ink cartridges


When shopping for an all-in-one this time I decided to put the greatest emphasis on ink costs, and specifically the ability to use inexpensive substitute cartridges sold online, eg ebay. With little effort I found I could buy 8 cartridges (2 ea...

Great output with substitute ink cartridges- $3 each on line

Draft mode is a little faint

There Are Much Better Printers Out There


I was looking for an affordable all-in-one machine when I bought this unit. I was initially impressed with their Durabrite ink that was supposed to resist water and last a lot longer than other ink. Photo print quality was not real impressive, but...

Decent print quality; decent scanner

SLOW; ink cartridges dry up quickly and don't last long

Good All-in-One for a Student


This is my first all is one and has been great, the print quality is great, as is the speed. When I'm late for a class it doesn't take long to get that term paper printed out in a couple of minutes. That is providing the paper feed is working well,...

Fast printing, scanning and copying

Issues with paper feed, no double sided printing

So long Canon, Hello Epson!


I handed down my beloved Canon i475d to me son because I needed scanning capabilites and Canon just didn't have a model that could compete with the Epson. I decided I could live without a memory card reader since I can get an add-on reader fairly cheap...

Smooth design, easy scanning, pc-free features, price

Pict-Bridge port is biased, no memory card slots

About this printer


(1)When I got this item, the box already had some damage. I don't know is there any damage to the printer or scanner. Who should I complain to? (2)Moreover, I think the scanner should have a lock for it, that will be safer!!(3)The Epson printer have...

(1)The ink inside, there is no expire date. I have no idea how long it can use. (2)Moreover, the couple inside already expire. That's why I worry aboud the ink will dry pretty soon. (3)The biggest problem that when I printting, the ink head moves to...

I don't recommand to buy this one

Same as other reviews...


Pic quality could be better, but what do you expect? I haven't seen it this good on an all-in-one that's less than $xxx... Will check back in another month or so... after I've gotten to use the printer a while.

This printer is great so far. The ink dries almost instantly on everything including photos. The quality is good, too. Ink cartridges are easily accessed and installed, and the setup was quick (maybe 10 min - I spent most of that time climbing...

Kinda loud, but not bad... slightly louder than some I've seen... a little louder than I would like, but not enough to REALLY bother me. Also, make sure that you get the USB cable when you get the printer. It doesn't come with it

This is a great all around printer scanner. Only difference between this and cx4800 is card reader but everbody has those anyway

Bought two of these for office ; great little units. Outstanding picture printing in durabrite inks. Love them also have 7800 at home and very happy with all 3 units. Going to buy another one for office as well. Able to use AM ink carts without any...

somewhat slow intial page print
