    If this Epson is anything.... my old DX6000 then it's crap!

    "Individual colours cost 9.10 a pop - a set of six will set you back 47." This also rings a bell at how expensive it was. Then there was the Error messages the chipped cartridges made.

    Guess what? The printer failed to recognise genuine Epson cartridges, I became so frustrated that I dumped it in the local council dump - despite it still being under guarentee.

    Don't believe me, try googling dx6000, E2 errors, epson chipped cartridges...etc.

    "Cheap to Run"

    Where do Epson get their figures from? The two inkjets I've owned from them both went through a set of cartridges a month, with pretty light usage...

    I'll never buy Epson again.

    Epson? Never again

    I had a CX5200 all-in-one which was pretty good. I got it because it was totally compatible with Linux, the drivers worked fine. It printed well until I had to change the cartridge when the print head clogged. I dismantled the whole unit & cleaned it and it still didn't print properly.

    Someone designed a printer where the print head clogs up when you change the ink cartridge....

    That was replaced by a HP all-in-one where you can puncture the ribbon cable connecting the print head when you change the ink cartridge..

    Why is it so hard to produce something which a) prints b) prints on envelopes c) doesn't shag the printer when you change the cartridge?
