EPSON All In One NX 100 JUNK!!!

Bought the NX -100 a little over a year ago, liked it for about a month, before it started fighting with me Every Day. first it ran through ink in half the time of any other printer I'd seen, until I stopped buying their cartridges and started using generics that oddly enough had Twice as much ink as the official Eppies. Then the machine started detecting the unofficial cartridges and refusing to print with them installed. Overcame that with refillables that reset the Epsom smart reader and pretended they were Eppie cartridges. Thought I ws finally home free until today, when the machine again refused to print, this time posting an onscreen note " There are internal parts which have reached the end of their service life. Contact Epson Support for Servicing" And of course it locked down and won't print. Contacted support, got an unlock code to reset the "internal pages printed counter" spent an hour uploading, downloading, fighting with my Vista software about being allowed to run the Epson page count fix software, etc. surprise, the software posted its own message that the unit did not need to be re-set and shut itself down, but still left the printer refusing to print, because IT has decided its at end of life and steadfastly refuses to print. Scanner, Fax, Printer, now all dead because the ink sponges are full and you can't change them or get new ones unless you ship the little *** to a service center. BTW, contacted them, and they confirm its not worth the trouble to do the service, so they just send you a refurbed unit for $100.00 or so, and "recycle the ones that declare they're dead" So basically, twice the ink cost of any other printer, until you get past the cartridge analyser inside, constantly rejecting unofficial ink, slow as *** to decide to print when it actually does, and after a year of light office work, it declares itself dead in the water and suggests you go buy a replacement. Want to gues what brand will Never come home with me again?

What they don't tell you is that your wireless connection needs to be configured with a wired connections. It is ***, I know.

Another thing you are not informed of is that the cartridges which ship with the printer are "trail cartridges" which only contain a small fraction of the ink you would be getting with a new OEM cartridge,

Another thing the don't tell you is that if you are out of yellow, you can't print black. It isn't just epson, all printers are the same.

The number 69 cartridges should be widely available at places like staples, even wal-mart. The 68 - high yield, not so much. There are also a vast assortment of off brand compatible cartridges for your printer if you don't want to give epson any more of your hard earned money.

All printer companies are the same, Epson and Lexmark seem to be the worst.

Epson printers will not work if one of the four color cartridges is empty. I tried to print a letter (black and white), but the magenta ink cartridge was empty. I went to the Printer Properties and set it to print "Black Ink Only", but that didn't even work. I...

Epson 2850 firmware stops the use of 3rd party cartridges in violation of a SUPREME COURT ruling that this activity is prohibited by the court. Anyone with this issue should file a complaint with the federal trade Commission.

Epson Ink Cartridge
Purchased a $3,000 Epson Television (was supposed to be the latest and greatest thing from them). After 1 year, it started to develop yellow shadows on the screen. Something "burned out" in it. They came and repaired it for free. 4 years later, the EXACT same thing...

Epson Scanner does not work

I own an Epson Perfection V500 Photo Scanner. The scanner is about 15 months old with very, very light use and it no longer works at all. On April 26, 2010 Epson's call center in a foreign country suggested that I take the scanner to a service center 40 miles away with all charges being my responsibility. The call center connected me with a person named "Burn" who suggested I use the password of "smell" to get a $20.00 discount on a new scanner. The password "smell" becomes invalid in 4 days on April 30th. I thought the password choice was worth a personal chuckle. How silly and ironic can they be? I was told corporate chooses the passwords. How appropriate! Avoid Epson.

EPSON; A company that doesn't care

The first (only) Epson product I ever purchased was a Workforce 600 all-in-one wireless printer that worked great for 10 months. Then the black ink would not print. Within the Epson warranty period and after emails and telephone calls to customer service (in Malaysia) they said would replace he printer. Within 5 days came the Epson printer box, containing a used, scratched, marred re-furbished printer covered in fingerprints. To my dismay, I set it up following the on screen instructions AND...............You guessed it, it would not work and was broken also. I called back to Epsons so called service department to complain and request a NEW printer, but (MJ) stated the service department will only send what they have in stock and that there are no new printers in the warehouse. After expressing my dismay (professionally - no rude/foul language) MJ stated that a 10 month old printer (within warranty) is not new, so they cannot replace the printer with a new one. I then requested an up-grade, which he stated that Epson could not/would not do. I then requested my original price back from Epson, which.......you guessed it, they could not do. So, I agreed to accept yet another used/refurbished/scratched/marred/smudged printer just so I can print/scan/fax documents. Now having two Epson Workforce 600s (original & replacement) to return, there will not be a third. If this one doesn't work, I'm going to sue them in small claims court for the original price of the printer+ink+time+gas+headache fee. Apparently the only way to get service and satisfaction from a large corporation's in America is with a law suit...terrible.

Epson its wireless. Yeah right!!

I bought the workforce 600 wireless printer and for a while worked well. About 4 months ago the wireless part stopped working. I did all the possible changes nothing happen. I tried to contact customer service no success. I bought new ink and I bought a new router. I made it work for a little while with a USB, but now not even with that. I have a all-in-one printer less than a year and it is already bad. The printer works but no the wireless part that means every thing has to be save to a USB and then put directly in the printer. A lot of work. My Helmet Packard I had it for 7 years and it was as good as new when I throwed it away. My husband wanted a wireless printer. Wrong! Stay away from this product

Epson Sucks

Epson printers are such garbage. I've used multiple models ranging from all-in-one printers to standard printers. The print loses quality after a short time and this latest printer is *** me off even more... Fresh out of the box, one of the 6 ink cartridges doesn't work (magenta). I can't print anything (not even black and white) because this one cartridge does not work. Such BS. EPSON IS GARBAGE. Such large printers that eat up space, but don't even work well. So ***. I'm pissed because I need to print! *** EPSON PRINTERS!

Epson Rebate has given me the run-around about rebate

I purchaed a camera from Worf camera and the sales person said that they were running a deal that if you purchaed an Epson printer for $70, that they Epson would give you a rebate check for $70, so basically I would get a printer for the price of sales tax. I didn't need another printer, but what the heck. So now it's going on 6 months with phone call after phone call and fax after re-faxing them to get them to fulfill their end of the bargin. The manager there (Debbie G) has been left several messages, and of course refuses to retuen my phone calls. I had to contact someone at their corporate office and of course they said that the rebate center has my rebate and would send it out asap. That was over 5 weeks ago. I own my company and use several computers and printers and I will make it my life's blood never to purchase a single item from Epson.

Epson - Stylus Photo r380 died three times

I have an r380 and have been trying to get a third replacement for one month now. There services was awesome with the first two. What happened is 2 months after buying my printer the paper started to load to the left side of the printer. I called, we trouble shooted and then sent me a new one. After placing a 150.00 hold on my credit card I received the printer and set it up only to have issues with the free ink cartridges they sent me in the box with the printer. So I went out before calling them and bought $80.00 dollars worth of six new cartridges from staples. Just to have to call them to find out that the new unit sent to me was defective. Then after waiting another week they sent me another one, same model witch lasted two months. Then this printer which I still have loads to paper to the left as the first one did. I don't use the printer often but it is a key accessory for my business. We have now been on the phone for 1 month to get a replacement of a different model lower or higher than the one I have cause I can not take the chance of another one failing when my 1 year warranty is up in 3 months. What makes me made is one of the techs admitted that there is technical issues with the r380 model. So Now I still am out of a inkjet, interest on 150.00, and 80.00. I am pissed!!!!!!!!!!!! Dont buy epson!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
