Selling a product without the key to unlock after the warranty expires. Same as selling an automobile without the keys, operates until it reaches the out of warranty time locking the owner out being subjected to take to one of its service places holding the keys. Failure for the owner to repair his own purchased property (Printer ET2550). The law has already been argued and ruled, is mandatory to make parts available to consumer for 10 years after a major product is no longer produced. Epson has broken the law, including lemon law. Has to refund the cost.
Epson 820 cartridges - forced replacement: I was looking for the simplest desktop printer I could find as I use the printer very infrequently. Set up was reasonable verging towards difficult. What infuriated me was that after several months it declared that the cartridges were empty, which of course they weren't. Having replaced them and used very occasionally in the course of the next few months the printer then threw up an error (0x81 if I remember correctly). This led me down a path of various website scams and attempts to update the software. Eventually discovered it was just a paper jam! Why on earth couldn't they say that?
Print quality was lousy so went through the setup process, cleaned heads etc. Print quality improved somewhat and It reported ink cartridges fine. I reseated them anyway. Guess what?!? It is now telling me again that I should replace the cartridges and refuses to proceed. I am absolutely infuriated with the time I have spent trying to use this product over the past year. I will NEVER buy another Epson product as long as I live!
O man where to begin? Well is you already know all printers have problems. All printers are very special at that where you always have to call customer service. But here is the problem with Epson. They have hire a bunch of sassy girls that feel that they are better than you have they will treat you that way. I have call 12 time at this point for one little problem that it can be solve really easily, but guess what? These girls turn this little problem in to a huge problem and you waste like 1 hour doing a bunch stuff and guess what, your problem was never fix, and why you may ask well at this point is everyone else and one thing they always make sure is that you feel dumb and you tell them things like maybe the problem is x or y but they remind you that you are dumb and they are the expert and you are just a person, well two hours later guess what the problem was. It was (x). I have been saying that for two hours but they don't listen. Worst customer service ever.
Besides being the very loudest printer (2750 Series) I've ever owned, I absolutely am disgusted by a copy/machine that holds your print jobs hostage because a unnecessary color cartridge is empty. Here I am 11:00 PM with a morning deadline and unable to print a B&W copy I need because the printer wants a magenta color cartridge. Buying a new printer and it won't be because this printer broke and it won't be an Epson.
I bought Epson wf 3640 June last year from Target, paid cash and did not keep the receipt. Now less than a year printer stopped working and Epson would not take a responsibility and I lost $300 buying this junk. I did some research and many people having the same problem especially with error code 97. Be aware of this company when you need a printer.

I don't like it when the Epson printer runs out of a color ink and it won't let you print, even if only in black and white, but the black ink is fine.
I recently purchased Epson XP-830 to replace a previous Epson printer. I sincerely love the printer. I appreciate the fact that it uses separate ink cartridges for each color. Copies are sharp and color photos are outstanding. I have used several brands of printers, but feel Epson provides the best quality.
Epson is difficult to operate. Had to reinstall drivers download the icon unplug & restart computer many times. Complicated unless you use the machine every day. Not user friendly.
The Epson ink cartridges are costly and even if you only print black and white, you still need the color cartridges or else it won't print right. That's the downfall.
The color isn't very defined... Plus it runs out of ink too often. Would not recommend you purchase a Epson printer. The ink is hard to find also. I like Canon much better.
I've owned several other brands from HP to Canon, the Epson 525 is my favorite. The ink has grown higher than when I first purchased my unit, but it will work well with generic/refill inks so I still rate it high as an all-in-one.
This printer is easy to set up and to print from your PC using Wi-Fi. I have had this printer for a while and have had no problems with it. The only drawback may be that the printer heads need cleaning a lot but this is easy to do.
I have had most other brand of printers, and found that Epson by far is the best printer brand. Epson lasts the longest, is very easy to use, and is just better than the others.
I got Epson because it has a separate film tray. It was also very easy to set up. The ink is cheap and it’s dependable as well. My only complaint is that it's slow.
My model is the Epson Workforce. I've had it for about 4 years. It’s inexpensive, good quality printing, very reliable. My only complaint though is the replacement cartridges are pretty expensive.
So far, the Epson WF-3640 works great. Good quality, prints fast and the document feeder is very useful. However, it uses up ink fast and always need to buy refills that are not cheap.
Have 3 Epson printer, fax, scanner combos. Reliable, great quality, and when I need customer service they are great. If they can't fix it (only has happen once in 5 years) they replace it. The Epsons are easy to use and cartridges easy to install.
I like the Epson printer but the cost of ink is outrageous. No matter where you get it, it is almost 50.00, that is crazy. Also, it is easily jammed even when there is no paper. I enjoy the printers, but after they break they're worth nothing. You cannot even recycle the thing, it sits in the landfills.
The Epson printer I bought to replace my old one. I chose it because of the reasonable price but I found it to be more than what I expected. It is very easy to use... puts out quality printing and is an excellent printer for its price. Overall the best I've ever had. It also includes Wi-Fi which I always use now from my android phone. Very convenient for me.
Have had 2 Epson in the last 7 years & the only reason I got another one is that the older is out of date for the times... I buy the OEM ink off of eBay for quite a bit less than the original. Works on Android/Chrome/Anything Google can Scan to Cloud/Print from email. Lots & lots of options, always works great. The old one is in the closet still working as a backup.
No matter how many times I clean the ink heads or change the ink, I have streaks of black ink in various places (never the same on each page). Pictures have heavier streaks of black ink which destroys the picture. Ink does not last long enough. Never have sales or discounts on ink cartridges and all stores do not carry Epson ink. Does hook up with WiFi easily but I will be going back to HP first chance I get.
Epson is the best printer that I have ever owned. I have had it for several years and have not had a problem with it. It is easy to use, printer is easy to load, it does not seem to use much ink. Cartridges are easy to change as well.
This printer uses ink really fast. The print quality is awful, you constantly need to align it and clean the heads. Cartridges not easy to get. I would not recommend this printer.
This Epson printer is pretty good, it is a Epson 786, and it is also a fax machine. Have not had any problems with it. I use buy HP brands, but I think Epson is much better and more cost efficient.
The Epson is a great printer but the ink cartridges are a rip-off, which seems to be the case for almost every printer on the market. Quality of printers page is good and setup was easy, but the ink is quite expensive.
I purchased a printer to publish newsletters. It required 11 X 17 double-sided print. After a long trial & error, the job looked great. Lots of compliments!
My Epson is a breath of fresh air. Easy to use, so quiet and fast. Print quality and the amount of ink I use has been phenomenal. Wish I made the change a long time ago.
Epson ink is better than most, but is expensive to purchase. The longer lasting ink, XL, is not available for the color cartridges. Modem quit working within 18 months.
This is my first Epson Printer and I am extremely pleased. The print quality and reliability is excellent. I have had others printers and this one has been exceptional. I have had less than 5% of the jams that I have experienced with other computers.
Excellent printer, multiple paper trays for regular and legal paper. Easy to load ink. Great value for the cost and the ink is normally very inexpensive in comparison to the other brands I've tried.
