Pros: Another review will follow. THIS IS IT. I haven't used this printer a lot, but everything worked well out of the box, ( once I was able to get a USB cable from another source ). Because of previous experience with Epson printer/scanner combos, ( this is just a printer remember). I am sure that this model will do what I need it to. One of the main reasons I prefer Epson products, is their software. It always allows you to correct, improve, and adjust your images to how you like them. Of course this review is about the printer alone, and the photo prints are worthy of wall display. Which is my main purpose for purchasing it. I think most people will be very happy with the photo prints it makes, which means the text copies should be equally satisfying.
Cons: Poor Epson!! They can't afford to supply the most basic of connection cables. I think that it is very sad that a well know brand, with a good reputation. Could be so CHEAP as to NOT supply a basic USB cable with the printer. That is ridiculous! The printer comes with a USB port. So it's not like Epson is saying that the printer is for Wi-Fi connections only. Not everyone has Wi-Fi capablities, or wants to use Wi-Fi. This is not a little inexpensive "no frills" printer. Obviously, I am upset that I will have to purchase a USB cable before completely setting up the printer.
Other Thoughts: Once I purchased a USB cable to connect the printer to my computers. I was happy with the print test pages. I should mention that this printer has a long, low, and narrow shape. It is longer then other printers I own, because of the paper sizes it can print to. I suggest that anyone thinking about purchasing it. Pay attention to the dimensions given in the specs. Lastly, a buyer of this printer will have to purchase a "USB 2.0 A Male to B Male" cable. Which are EXTREMELY low in cost.. Are you listening Epson?! The manufacturer plainly states in the documentation that comes with the printer. That the ink cartridges supplied with it, are enough to set up, and initially use the printer. But the owner must be prepared to purchase more ink cartridges at some point.

This reviewer reports that his/her technical understanding of this type of product is and has owned this product 1 week to 1 month.
Cons: If you purchase this and are thinking you can just set your printer on top and go, then think again. I can't find this mentioned on NewEgg and (If it is I apologize) but when you open the package the first thing you find is you need the Caster Base for an additional 300 + dollars before you can use this.
Other Thoughts: Bottom line is I can't figure out why this isn't made clear when purchasing this because unless you're replacing one that you already had on a base I don't know why you wouldn't purchase the base at the same time.

Pros: It came with instructions and was easy to replace. It fixed the problem I was having with pages not grabbing every time. I also replaced the pad assemblies (I've done that on a couple of our scanners). The original lasted for quite a few years of moderate use in an office.
Cons: It doesn't come in blue? No cons.

This reviewer reports that his/her technical understanding of this type of product is and has owned this product 1 month to 1 year.
Pros: The price was great - much lower than our typical supplier.
Cons: Now I see why the price was so low. The printhead doesn't work. My machine accepts it but immediately attempts to recover printhead when I try to print. It succeeds and then when I try to print again it does the same thing. I put the old printhead back in and it works fine but the quality is indicative of a printhead that needs to be replaced. Newegg doesn't seem to be standing by their products either. We have not been able to return this or exchange because it's a non-returnable item or something like that. Beware of the return policy when you purchase this item. I love Newegg but will certainly be more cautious of purchases from now on.
