"Scanner won't work when you're out of ink."0.5 starson by lummysdad
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.
