    Rated 3 out of 5 by from great features I bought the all in one epson, the manual did not provide enough info, the disk was not helpful. I have to setup scan to WSD every time I want to scan something, will not scan to computer or flash drive. It is frustrating. Feel like taking it back to the store

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This company withholds information. I print in black and white. Every once in a while, something I print will have a little color, and I inadvertently use color, but not intentionally. I was not made aware, at the time of purchase, that Epson would require that I buy blue, red, or yellow to print in black. This information is tucked away in the FAQ section, and somewhere in the owner's manual, but not on the box. Not provided prior to purchase so that an educated purchase decision can be made. It's extortion! The printer won't work print in black and white, it won't work at all, if you don't buy color ink! That's theft.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I purchased this printer at my local Office Depot and I have to tell you that I am so HAPPY I did.Not only was it easy to set up but the prints so far are GREAT!I took one of my pup and printed a couple coloring pages and also a couple things last night and I have barely seen a drop in ink.This is regular printer paper so I can't wait to see how it does on other mediums. SO GLAD I FOUND IT!!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from good and bad I love the scanning and color copies - great for pictures! However, the ink for this printer runs out really fast and I've had to throw away multiple brand new ink cartridges because my printer will not accept them! such a waste of money!! I bought the printer on sale and it would probably be less expensive to just buy a new printer than keep buying ink for it. Not to mention, when I do get my ink to work, it's only good for 20-30 pages, plus it is VERY hard to find! So even though the scanner is great, it is just not worth it if you're going to be printing anything off this printer.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from AWFUL I purchased last night at a walmart in hammonton New jersey. I set up tonight, following the directions to a T(I have a biology degree so I Im sure I did it correctly). This is the first product I ever wrote a review about. This thing is complete trash. I wouldnt even give if my worst enemy needed a fraud passport and I was hoping he would fail, he wouldnt even be able to print a blank sheet. My printer doesnt even recognize the paper in front of its face. When I attempt to calibrate something inside moves(not the paper roller tray) and then it beeps and says no paper in the tray. This is a awful product and I now know why I pay for quality products. Thanks for ruining my camping trip with this(I needed a map)!!! Should have just ordered a real printer online a week ago. DO NOT BUY THIS!!! Legit my first product reviewed ever. I am sure this will be deleted but if you do get a chance to review know that I am 100% serious. DO NOT BUY THIS!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from You’ve been warned!! DO NOT BUY!!! DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER!!!! You have been warned. I just spent an hour fighting Epson to replace this printer with no resolve. I had to prepay for the replacement of this printer under warranty. I’m so incredibly upset right now. I had this printer for an hour when it failed to print correctly. Returned it to the store. Second printer was of but not great and I dealt with it but now, 6 months later I have to do a head cleaning every single time I use it even if it’s been a few days! This causes it to suck through ink!! The company was unwavering with willingness to help me so they have lost my business and I’ll make sure that it won’t happen to someone else!!!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from you MUST buy color ink to print in black and white this printer WILL NOT print in only black and white if you run out of color ink. I just spoke to an Epson representative about this, and the printer is designed so it CANNOT print in black and white without color ink. AVOID this company at all costs. Use HP, Canon, Brother, or any other company. AVOID EPSON.

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.
