I am so disappointed in Epson-Seiko. Ever since I was in the photography business, I bought Epson printers. Total I have owned over 10 models (+ two of them twice!). Each time they ever so slightly change the cartridges to force one into buying more ink. Nothing really new here with ANY brand as the consumables is where they get you. This unit has been one of the worst. WAY, WAY overpriced ink and each time you insert a new cartridge, it has to "charge" (i.e, use some ink.) Then it has missing text (mind you, Epson's use a new head with each new cartridge!) forcing one to clean (THE BRAND NEW!) heads. OK, so a full cartridge, new head and everything is clean. Now I am down to 60-75% of an ink cartridge that costs about $10-15 each. Now I can start printing. Oops, I didn't use it for a couple of days, so now I need to clean the heads again due to missing text. OK, now down to 30%. In the end, it probably costs about $.25/page. SO I get frustrated and buy more ink or a different printer. This is the last time I buy an Epson. At least you save 10% when you get it from Best Buy.
