Tiny, expensive ink cartridges and short product life


I can't believe Epson released this printer to the marketplace. I was constantly buying and replacing cartridges and every time I did this, it took several minutes. Since there are six cartridges and they all hold a tiny amount of ink, I felt like...

Reads cards, prints nice photos

6 tiny cartridges = constantly replacing cartridges. If even 1 COLOR cartridge is empty, it won't print at all, not even text. Once, I was printing several dozen pages and I had to replace all six ink cartridges. Then it died, barely used

Consumer review by:

Disapointing print quality


I like the theory of the machine, but the printing is probably the main reason I bought it. I use the expensive Claria ink, so know that my problem is not that! So, I have to say that would not very enthusiastically reccomend this machine.

Good scanning and great ability to use my camera's memory card. Loads all my photos directly into my computer

Colored prints or graphics are muddy, not the correct colors, and major dark lines run through the graphics. The text often has black lines running through it. It requires that I clean the heads a couple times a week for just decent graphics

Don't buy this printer without a protection plan.


I must have gotten a lemon when I purchased this printer cause it did not work out for me. I had nothing but problems with this printer. I just wanted something to print out my photos and this was not the printer for the job. I will never purchase an...

I bought this at Best buy at a very reasonable price. The big mistake was I did not add the protection plan when I purchased it

After changing ink cartridges for the 1st time using genuine epson ink, photos printed out terrible.Nothing but problems there after.Always saying paper jam when turned on. Unable to print black & white copies if any of the other cartridges are empty

Would not recommend!!


worked well for first 11 months

Have had the printer for about 11months now and it looks nice on my desk but unfortunately all it is doing is collecting dust. Keep getting paper jams with the thing, it will cost me more to fix than just to replace sooooooooo off to the store I go

Consumer review by:

Streaky photos, fair print quality


I would not purchase again, and I have certainly discovered what I don't want in a printer.

Was recommended as "best for the price

The photos streak and the ink is slow to dry. The overall print quality of the printer is fair. The printer is set up to ensure that you "BUY" ink. You cannot print in black and white if any color is low. Expensive ink, no off brands

Photo & cd/dvd great-cd/dvd's DO NOT smudge..??


It a great printer but as I said before the ink is expensive to replace & even if 1 or ur 5 color cartridges is empty & ur blask is still full u cannot print in just B/W. That's Epson wanting to make money. I don't understand the cd/dvd smudging...

I think this printer has excellent printing especially for photos & cd/dvds. It prints perfectly on 'PRINTABLE' cd/dvd's. Ink has NEVER smudged on the 500 or so i've printed

A bit loud. Ink is approx $11 per cartridge & it uses 6 cartridges & unlike HP, Epson doen't give many specials or incentives. Biggest annoyance is that u cannot print in B/W if even just 1 color cartridge is empty because Epson wants to make mon

Consumer review by:

Fast printer.


Excellent product with the advantage of Claria ink.

Excellent photo's from this machine

Manual could be better

Consumer review by:

Great Photos, expensive ink, skip this product.


Don't buy, you can order prints off the internet cheaper. Epsons ink prices have gone up so much their printers are no longer worth the money. Look for other options. Updated on May 14, 2009

Great photo printing quality

I could only print 220 4x6, or 55 8x10 images on one batch of ink. This cost $1.45 per 8x10

Nice All in one Printer


worth the money

Prints are beautiful, fast printing

ink doesn't last long, expensive ink

Consumer review by:

A fairly decent all-in-one. Prints good quality photos


Overal I am pleased with the RX595. I can quickly take out my SD card from my camera, plug it into the printer without turning on my PC and do prints. The interface is somewhat similar to a print station at Wal-mart, in other words easy to use. Color...

Prints good quality photos on photo paper ; Easy to use interfact built into the printer with LCD screen ; Scanner/copier ; Prints fairly fast while maintaining quality ; Can plugs into computer ; Prints pics directly off memory card

Bulky in size ; Have problems using Epson scan (allows me to use it just as a scanner for my computer) ; Ink is pricey ; Chip build into the cartrages prevents refills
