    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Printer Ever Used So many barriers to just printing a simple black and white page that I will never buy one again
    Date published: 2022-06-18
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I bought this and not only is it excessively lengthy to install compared to HP or cannon where you download simple software that they tell you and then boom your scanning and printing. With Epson you have to go to support search your printer tell it to download then a series of turning on and off the printer. There is no reliable way to use the document feeder it constantly say paperjam. I was able to remove one of the sensor tabs and it now feeds. There is no reliable app that scans it they all lose your work or say the printer is busy. Someone at epson software development has no clue what they are doing or how to satisfy customers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to set up and use. Was a great buy for the price. Easy to set up. Just take your time. Prints fast for a home printer. All in all really enjoy this product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of Money If you run out of one color (Magenta, Cayan or Yellow) you can not print AT ALL even if the Black cartridge is 100% full. Such a waste. Loss of productivity is crazy.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from WORST PRINTER I HAVE EVER USED I purchased this printer a few months ago. I set it up, it worked fine for about 31 days. After that I have to run a maintenance cleaning before EVERY USE. I mean, its an inconvenience, but not a big deal. Well I ended up printing about 30 pages of black and white documents, add in the 4 maintenance cleaning scans, and I had to replace the black ink cartridge. Ok, not a big deal, I just assumed the cartridge that came with the printer was bad. Then I printed 4-5 pages of color. NOW I HAVE TO REPLACE ALL OF THE COLORED INK AND IT WONT EVEN LET ME PRINT IN BLACK AND WHITE. This is a terrible product. I keep having issues. I keep having to do maintenance. For the amount of time I have to spend fixing the thing, I might as well be transferring the information to stone tablets.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Failure I despise this printer for the fact it runs through ink like nobody's business and when I have something important to print oh, guess one of the ink cartridges our out so got to replace the whole thing. Guess you don't have a spare today. Well not to say the interface is made so bad there's no option for any other color even if you didn't care for its quality. So overall mostly and would not recommend buying.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too expensive for printing photos!! I've had this printer for over a year and it has cost me a fortune in ink. I have likely paid 12 times the purchase price in ink in the last twelve months. I print photos occasionally but have a boxful of empty cartridges to recycle from printing just a few.

    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.
