    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk Printer does not allow you to print from black ink only. When color ink runs out it forces you to go buy more ink even though you may have a full black ink cartridge and vice versa. What a piece of junk!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Utter Rubbish I went through all the settings and alignment options for vertical and horizontal on this printer and every print it made from my computer came out with bright pink lines across the entire image on every image I printed to test the settings. I don't recommend Epson.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Printer Slow to print. I don't like the touch screen arrow feature options. Older model more user friendly.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This printer changed my views on Epson I have had Epson printers it seems like forever. This model has changed my thoughts on Epson quality. It is a ink eater and has never performed like expected. Will be looking for a better printer in the future.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Improved functions I bought this about a month ago after the frustration of trying to replace a failed older Epson model (scanner would scan only top half of page) and finding the consumer reviews on any model, Epson or other manufacturers, were pathetically poor indicating consumers expect better reliability, ease of setup and use. My conclusion after reviewing all models of all manufacturers and the reviews posted on each, was that the industry needs to improve their research and development to produce printers to meet consumer expectations. The manufacture that does so should quickly find themselves the industry leader as there is so much unhappiness voiced in all the consumer reviews of any manufacturer. I held off buying a new printer for many months using my droid phone's camera to take pic and sent to computer to print as a document to bypass failed scan problem. I could only compromise on this model because it had a key pad to keep it less cumbersome to use rather than handling another device (cell phone) to printout documents. Printer devices are becoming so complicated and complex that there needs to be better optional prompts and popups helps to assist users in navigating through the steps and processes available rather than having to explore them by trial and error wasting time and paper! This is my third consecutive Epson printer, keeping my fingers crossed it serves me well!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and handy for personal use. I think you need to make the instructions readable on the computer screen. It is hard for older people to set up from the copier screen.

    6 Replacement cartridge yields are based on ISO/IEC 24711 tests in Default Mode printing continuously. Replacement cartridge photo yields are based on the ISO/IEC 29102 photo yield standard. Cartridge yields vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or predominantly with one ink color. All ink colors are used for printing and printer maintenance, and all colors have to be installed for printing. For print quality, part of the ink from the included cartridges is used for printer startup and a variable amount of ink remains in the cartridges after the “replace cartridge” signal.
