Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best printer i have ever had and it's been a few! Got this about one month ago and it's had a work out prints very nice and the bulk ink supply will pay for the extra money spent on it fast! The only thing I don't like is paper capacity wish it would hold a full ream but can live with that short coming. You will not be disappointed with money spent on this one will save you in ink prices in the long run very cheap to refill the ink supply compared to some of the others its a keeper!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not last long Right out of the box, the printer worked great. It is noisy but worked great. After first tank refill with Epson ink, the print head plugged. Maybe it could have been repaired but downtime in a one printer office costs a lot of money, so it was tossed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great printer I just bought this printer after my dad bought one. I was spending a lot of money for ink cartridges and this printer will save me money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Prints great Photo Paper handling is poor, could not update software called help desk told to try latter. Paper tray seems to be poorly made. When printing it waste a sheet of paper some times also will print code on paper. Display information is small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features - Cost Effective This printer is very nice on the pocket book regarding consumables - Ink. It is nice to directly view the ink level in each tank. Thus far the ink levels are doing well. The automatic two sided printing works well and color copies look like the originals. Setup was not as straight forward as I had expected and with a minimal amount of wireless experience I had to call for assistance. Time was taken to walk me through every aspect of the setup and now the printer is humming along beautifully. Let's face it, it's not a laser printer but for a color inkjet the economy is what I was looking for and the results are very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREATEST PRINTER EVER!!! This Eco Tank printer is the best printer ever created. I love the fact that I don't have to purchase ink cartridges any more & that I can refill the ink tanks as I need to. This printer is greatly efficient at printing, making copies, faxes, and scanning documents. It is very easy to operate & even plays a nice melody when it is turned on to let you know it's working. I'm overly ecstatic about this printer & would highly recommend it to one & all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like all the different things Set up on this printer was more time consuming then prior printers we use by I feel the extra time and effort were truly worth the sweat and fret.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great Product, but a Few Bugs I bought this a month ago and soon after discovered that the control panel was not near as easy to utilize as the simpler and cheaper Epsom all-in-one printer that I previously owned. Using the tiny LCD screen with the arrow buttons is not at all intuitive. I could not master it. It was very frustrating. I made a special trip into Best Buy where I purchased it and their Geek Squad could do nothing to help -- except to recommend that I call tech support at Epsom.com. The technician whom I got on the phone was able to walk me through finding the settings I needed. At least it moved me beyond the roadblock. I still am not satisfied, however. The entire control panel needs developing further. And it needs to be able to copy multiple double-sided copies, which it cannot.
