Pros Clean, sharp prints and copies, easy scans with 4 adjustable modes, very easy setup. Bought it 5 months ago and still have not needed to replace an ink cartridge.
Cons Paper capacity could be bigger, but than that is the price you pay for the size. Manual does not explain how to p0rint envelopes, I had to call email support to get instructions.
Summary If you are not expecting the best photo quality, and need a small do-it-all, you will hard pressed to find a better printer
even close to this price. I bought this printer in September, 2012. Small footprint, It easily does everything it is supposed to. Prints are nice and sharp, colors accurate, scans quickly, with 4 scan modes. Set up was easy, but I used a wired connection. Since I have an iMac, I had to download the driver from Epson, but I don't know of any printer that does not require this for Macs. I use it for home use, for letters, resumes, scanning photos, and printing internet documents. So far, I have not used up any cartridges, although black is getting low as to be expected. High capacity cartridges are available. I have not printed any photos as I am choosy about the quality, and I don't expect a printer of this price and size to satisfy me.
My previous printer was a Cannon MX822, costing $179.00, and it also will not print if one ink cartridge runs out, would not work wirelessly, as supposed to, and scan would not work right even when wire connected.
Pros 1. Great form
2. Easy setup
3. Good print quality
Cons 1. Buying and buying and buying ink will bankrupt you
Summary I really liked everything about this printer, but I finally pulled the plug on it because of one issue: the outrageous ink costs involved. If you have a way to get free ink, go for it. Otherwise, DO NOT even consider this machine. Sometimes I would print 20 pages of primarily black documents and the screen would be filled with the dreaded "low on ink" warning. Epson obviously has these printers rigged to squeeze as much money as possible from any ignorant fool by requiring constant spending on ink. I tried every trick in the book to get around this sole negative, but Epson has it set up so that you must spend ridiculous amounts of money to use this money hole on a regular basis. (Which is why they are so cheap to buy.) I'm back to HP, which is clearly inferior in almost every aspect, but at least I don't have to sweat it every time I print a doc or a pic. So if you are rich and foolish, get this printer. Otherwise, anything else that is not an Espon has to be your choice.

Pros everything, runs like "butter"
Cons alphabet found by clicking arrows
Summary Absolutely fabulous product all around including the price.
Pros Easy setup, prints surprisingly fast.
Scan to PDF wirelessly is great, impressive quality.
Tested across multiple mobile phone users in a mobile office, no problems.
Cons Would be nice to be able to print without a network, but not necessary for my needs.
Summary -The printer is very small and able to fit in a cabinet in my mobile office where space is at a premium.
-The paper input tray will feed paper from a 90 degree position against the back wall of the cabinet with no problems, even if it falls forward over the scanner.
-The power connection in the back is recessed so it can sit flush with the back wall.
-Wireless setup was simple with Sprint "Sierra Wireless" mobile hotspot. No problems printing from Android "nexus S" or IPad 2 with Epson Apps.
I haven't had it long enough to judge how long an ink cartridge lasts but the company pays for them so it's not an issue.
Pros At less than $60 I'm surprised they could produce the box and packaging for that.
Cons The product suffers from being too cheap AND from being from a company that doesn't care
Summary The Yellow ink cartridge broke right out of the wrapper. the Much-too-heavy plastic bag caught on the click-tab and ripped it, so the cartridge would not remain seated. This kept the machine from ever initializing. The software cannot be told to "continue" past this error, so this meant a trip to the store to buy a replacement cartridge.
The std cartridge is #124, but stores do not carry that number, only #125 and #126 (26 being the extra capacity ink, which I did not need.
the listing of what models fits what printer is confusing, different between the black & yellow, so even with the help of an employee, we both guessed (wrongly) that the #125 cartridge would work. It won't. It's is IDENTICAL IN EVERY WAY and it fits PERFECTLY, but the sensor tabs are different so the printer can't sense the pack.
#124 fits #125 does not #126 does and each one has a different, but overlapping "fits" listing????? Are they kidding? That is how little they think of their customers?
Back to the store, get the correct cartridge (expensive extra-capacity is all anyone carries) print FIVE pages in black and white ...
and the software tells me that ALL cartridges are ALL low on ink!
I printed three envelopes and all three came out with an ink smudge on the leading edge.
I owned the first Epson COLOR inkjet printer they ever made. The Stylus - back before EVERY printer they made was called that. I'd forgotten why I hadn't had an Epson since.
