"Broke down after 14 months"2.0 starson by drdreds
Pros: Set-up reasonably easy
Generally works as advertised
Cons: Premature hardware failure
No 2 year warranty if not registered
Summary: Except for the surprising amount of noise it maade while printing, I found this printer to work as advertised for the first year.
Then the hardware failed (the LED screen went blank and the input interface froze). Unplugging and replugging in the printer would fix it for a while, and then the same thing would happen. That meant important faxes were not getting through.
I called Epson because the printer came with a 2 year warranty. Well, I was wrong. Epson said that unless I registered the product by mail or online, the warranty was only good for 1 year! (I didn't register thinking it was illegal to withhold warranty for lack of registration!) They said that Amazon might honor the 2 year warranty to replace the machine, but of course, they didn't.
So beware of just-past-one-year machine failure. If you do get an Epson, make sure you register it to get the 2nd year of warranty.
