Pros Not one Thing, except maybe that it is wirless, Although you won't be able to print with it after a few months.
Cons Nozzels constantly clogs and you cannot get them clean after usuing many ink cartridges and following directions. It will show you have 1/3 of your cartridge left but prints poorly until you change the cartrdge. Takes a ton of ink to clean nozzels.
Summary Seems like it works great at first then within a few months you start having problems where it looks like the nozzels are clogged, so you go through all the steps and it doesn't change. So finally after talking with a tech for hours trying to get the nozzels unplugged and using up all your ink they send you a replacement. April 2010, got a new machine, it is nowOctober 2010. Same problems last night we went through 5 ink cartridges still looks like nozzels are still clogged. We finally gave up this is going in the trash, because epson will not give us any money back. WORST PRINTER I HAVE EVER OWNED . Callled and talked with Epson Customer service will not consider giving us even part of our money back. i AM BACK TO HP's.
Pros There are no pros!
Cons Goes through ink way too fast. HAVE to replace ALL ink for printer OR scanner to work. Scanner is always wanting the WEB key (which is impossible to type in)to scan anything. Prints slow even though claims to print fast. Ink cartridges are expensive.
Summary I have had NOTHING but problems with this printer. Don't waste your money!!!!
Pros Easy installation, user friendly LCD screen, customer service good
Cons This printer sucks up ink like you wouldn't believe. The ink costs are horrendous even using the refillable ones. I had a paper jam with no visible paper to clear and no way to clear it.
Summary The paper started crinkling when printing and finally a horrendous paper jam but I could not see a thing in the paths. Then the ink ran out and it wanted me to spend more money on ink to even get the LCD screen to work. No way. I went out and bought an HP. Then I called Epson and since the printer was only 10 months old, they sent me a refurbished one and I returned the defective machine. I would not buy another Epson.
Pros FAST!! Shoots letters out literally! Great quality prints. Setup breezy. Looks sharp.
Cons Sounds like a Garburator on steroids! (on power up and printing). Finger print free not at all! smudges can be hard to clean. You need to buy a Printer Cable to SCAN! 15$ cable is Not included! Construction how you say inexpensive not so solid.
Summary I recommend this Printer because of what it does for $100 but if you like the coffin quiet printing dont get it you will be going Ape s*it on it. This is an excellent upgrade for the average joe shmoe but dont expect it to paint like Picasso! The Epson might of rated higher to 4 stars but the sound coming this Beast was quite a downer. The video review of this printer was not up to par! I give the video review 3 of 5 stars.You can scan from PC to Printer But you cannot SCAN from Printer to PC. Yeah interesting. To SCAN wirelessly do a search (mac users COMMAND F) type in SCAN SETTINGS. Click in there for a bit to get going make sure your Printer is on. You need the Printer cable if you wanna email, pdf, and scan to COMPUTER (no cable needed for Computer to Printer). Happy Printing!

Updated on Jan 13, 2010Also if you have an IPHONE download Epson iPrint for FREE! It will print only photos!
Pros Nothing good can came out of this crap.
Cons It wont scan if you are out of ink!!!!
Summary Can you believe this multifunction printer needs ink to scan, if not the function to scan is not accesible because of a message that requests to change cartridge, and there is nothing you can do unless you buy more ink. Besides, the ink does not last more than 200 pages, then, more ink to buy. I can not believe how the editor of this magazine picks it up as an editors choice, bad choice, and it shows us that the editor has no idea of what he is picking, or he either has no clue how to test a product.
