Pros Easy to setup and print wirelessly.
Cons Cost of ink isn't sustainable. I print a few pages a week and must replace at least one cartridge a month ($20) I'm guessing 50cents a sheet to print.
Summary Look elsewhere.
Pros Cheap buying price
Cons Cartridge runs out of ink just by looking at it! Cost too much to re-fill. Epson uses their technology to make sure no 3rd party can sell you cheaper ink. Their low-ink and out-of-ink warnings calculated by counting pages!
Summary After printing about 20 pages you get a 'low ink' warning. Another 20 you can't use printer. Why not let me print out faded pages? Won't let me. Ok I'll replace. Look, old cartridge still 1/2 full. Just an expensive scanner now. No, it wont let you scan now! That is just evil. They will lie to you and say people don't want to print when they're low on ink. Most dishonest company around. So much so I spend all my free time panning reviews of them.
Their low-ink and out-of-ink warnings are calculated by counting pages! I use to test printers by printing out one dot. With Epson it's the same as I printed a solid black picture.

Pros The only good thing I have found is that it prints faster then my HP
It has a small footprint.
Cons Very expensive to print. The cartridges run out quickly,sure the cartridges are modestly priced but you are buying them more often and forget printing a picture. Try to figure out how to enlarge a document. Ease of use gets a big zero. Very noisy.
Summary Don't waste your money. In this case you really get what you pay for.
The printer says it is out of ink when the cartridges is still half full. I broke one open to see. Sometimes the auto sheet feeder works and sometimes it doesn't. The menu selections are hard to navigate. I don't want to get out the manual each time I need to use a printer.
Pros Small footprint, does everything, everything works.
Cons Not for high volume use.
Summary Although I feel for those who have had issues setting up their NX430s, I didn't have any. My small primary laptop computer doesn't have an optical drive, so I downloaded all of the software directly from Epson's website. Perhaps starting with the most up to date software helps. I'm pretty sure that I also updated the firmware on the printer at one point, too. That was painless, too, apparently. I had the NX420 for a short while before upgrading to the NX430. Due to my space limitations, the $10 cost of the upgrade for the slightly smaller size and slightly better design of the NX430 was well worth the it. I print from several different laptops, both PC and Mac, and also from a first generation iPad and a few iPhones, both 4 and 4S. All work flawlessly and the print quality is more than sufficient for my needs.
Pros -easy setup on wireless mode
-extremely cheap (I bought this for 59 on amazon)
Cons - a little noisy
Summary I obviously would recommend this machine, has a very good build quality, works flawlessly, I've been using this for about a month right now, and haven't experienced any problems since I set it up. Is a must buy if you're an student with not much space, and doesn't print lots of pages, but if you do print a lot, think twice before buying because the cartridges run out very quickly and cost around 15 each.
