"Buyer beware"1.0 starson by bekindtoothers
Pros: It prints, Some times......
Cons: INK. INK INK. I own a workforce 500. uses color ink to print black text. No way to buy pass. I bought this printer because the store I bought it at said they were good on ink. 70 dollars in color ink and I dont print in color. It is my understanding that
Summary: I Talked to Epson on the phone and ask if the newer workforce uses wells for ink. They said yes. If you are printing in black ink only and run out of color it will not print. You must replace the color well. No bypass even in the propertys when set to black ink only. They said it uses color ink to clean the heads. I like to do tha manualy. Not when they tell me to, what a waist of ink and money. 70 dollars in color ink and I dont even print photos or color copys. Its a bite when you got to print your black text page and you cant print any thing at all because a yellow or blue ink well is kinda empty. Funny, when I changed the blue ink because it said I was empty. I set the old well on in a dish. In the morning enough ink had drained out over night to print out a photo copy of a blue sky. It is my opinion the ink wells are not empty. Hence the last black page I print before I am made to change the black ink is a bright as the first page off of a new ink well. No fading at all. My old printer I could print black until you couldnt read it any more do to fading and lack of ink. I will never buy any Epson devise again. Buyer beware!
This is my opinion and my right to my opinion. I make no clame to the acuracy but do hold up my right to free speach. I hope you dont fall for this, ask your sales person about ink wells vs ink cartrages.
