"NEED ALL CARTRIDGES FULL TO PRINT BLACK AND WHITE!"1.0 starson by masterkey86
Pros: Fast, decent quality, doesn't jam paper, can do manual duplex printing
Cons: All cartridges need to be full to print in black and white even if you select grayscale. Its a waste of color ink and drives the ink cost up!
Summary: I bought this printer (520 epson) about 2 months ago and I encountered a serious problem. If you are planning on printing in just black and white, beware, you will still need to buy color ink if it runs out!!! It still uses some color ink even if you print in black and white and if you run out of color ink, it won't let you print in black and white even if you print in grayscale!! I called epson and they said that you still need all the cartridges full even if you are printing in gray scale. Its a scam to make money. Also, you can't refill the cartridges because of their new technology so the price of ink is way up there compared to other printers!
