So its one of these "deals" that are not a true reflection of the real RRP in reduction against the competition...voted warm as its available at similar prices elsewhere.

bought mine from argos for £29 odd as I has a £25 gift voucher to use. Its an average printer but the pages per minute on the description are way off, more like 3 or 4 pages per minute. worth the money if you are after a cheap printer though

Great price considering the free delivery - thanks amibees.

Wooopee, another Epson printer that will last about 6mths before clogging up, never to be used again!! As a printer the Epson range makes a great ornament :whistling:

Whilst somewhat cynical on the clogging up comment - I do have to agree. They are not built to last !

Yes I have an Epson ornament!..the lovely Epson Stylus PHOTO 925..its pants!

Ha, I have not bought an Epson printer since the late nineties, when my Epson Stylus 400 after only 2 years of use, clogged up and ended up in the local tip graveyard.

I've got an Epson R300 , never had a problem in over 2 yrs .

My CX3200 is still going strong after many years of use, I'm more likely to avoid HP after my past experiences then Epson

You probably use it frequently.

Most of the epson printers that I have been given that had been written off as clogged up and beyond repair were revived by putting a few drops of methylated spirits on the sponge pad inside that the ink head rests on when not in use, and leaving over night. It may take a few head cleaning cycles, but I've only had one out of many that refused to be fully cleaned this way. Certainly worth trying before you relegate your printer to the bin.

All Gone!!

My Epson Color (sic) 660 is still going well 9 years on. It did sit in the loft for a few years when I had access to a colour laser at work, but is now resurrected and running great. Picked up a load of cartridges for a song, so it's going to see a few years more use yet. I hope !!

For me Epson are great, my father-in-law insisted on buying a cheap Lexmark all-in-one and has had nothing but trouble. Still, the guy at the local refill shop loves him though :lol::lol:

I've got an R200 that around 4 years old and run on third party inks for most of that time with no problems. I don't use it very regularly either, sometimes it goes for many weeks without use, though you often need a nozzle clean if it's not used for a while (as with every inkjet I have owned).

I was quite tempted by this as the flat bed scanner is taking up to much room, but I'm guessing the photo printing quality will be fairly poor compared to the R200 (which uses 6 ink cartridges). Anyone tried photo printing with this?

RX600 still going strong after 4 years.

I just consigned my Epson dx3800 to the tip after 18 months, forever clogging up, usually when in a hurry to print something.

I understand the SX100 cartridged are chipped and even if you fill them they tell the printer they are empty and won't work!

Could end up expensive in the long term! (and bad for the environment).

Don't think I'll bother with Epson again!

Just bought a Brother printer, very large capicity ink (4 different) and not chipped.

Sorted!

ONLY 2 YEARS?

What exactly where you expecting?

These things ain't built to last, if you get 18 months out of a printer these days then you are doing really well. Having said that I have had an epson R220 for about 3 years now that I use to print photos regularly and I have used genuine, non genuine and continuous ink systems and it has never blocked on me.

No printers these days last a long time and you certainly get what you pay for too. Lexmark are the worst and HP aren't that far behind, they have a tendency to fail just after the warranty runs out.

I refill printer cartridges for a living so we use a lot of test printers and Lexmark and HP typically have the shortest life span.

The issue with epsons is that they need to be used often or they will dry up but you only have to use it once or twice a week to prevent this. We get people coming to the shop with printers they have had in the loft for a year and are surprised when it's gone dry.

The only time I found epsons to be really trouble prone was back then they were making the c20's, c40's and c60's, around this time we used to get a lot of blockages and I personally had a c60 that could literally do it in the middle of a print job but my R220 which is a few years newer has never blocked up on me once and I tend to not use it for ages and then blitz it with loads of A4 photos, I used to print hundreds of dvd's with it too.

No printers are perfect, HP went through a phase of trying to cut costs by using plastic gears where they once used metal ones and the failure rate was horrific, Lexmark once made a particular model where the flaps that closed the cartridges in would snap off after you had changed the cartridges a few times!

As a general rule just try to use it now and then to keep the printheads from drying up (this applies to all printers), it doesn't have to be much, just a nozzle check from the printer setup will do once a week or so, that's absolutely the best way to avoid blockages. Also if it is a model where the ink tank and cartridge are seperate (epson, brother, some canons) then keep a spare set handy because if you decide to take the cartridges out and take them to the shops with you so you know what ones to get you'll probably find your printer will be dry by the time you get back because you have left the ink inlets exposed to the air, even if it doesn't block you stand a bigger chance of getting air into the system that can result in an airlock that will give the same effect as a blockage.

I'm rambling now but the point is epson are no worse than any other brand on the whole.

I would personally avoid Lexmark, Dell and Olivetti brands but have found Brother to be surprisingly good, we started selling them in our shop and we have had the least comeback with those out of all the other brands put together!

Most epson chips can be reset if you take them to be refilled and even ones that cannot can easily be replaced by something third party as you rightly point out.

got a decent Epson photo printer for £5 more, cold, sorry

OK, so if you get what you pay for, why aren't HP printers (I don't know much about Lexmark) cheaper than all the rest then?

Well I've got 2 here sat doing nothing so its worth a go, I've been tempted to take it to bits as I saw a LOT of stuff about how cack Epsons are on Google. They seemed to suggest taking the print head off and washing the cleaning sponge, your method seems much easier, thanks I'll give it a go :thumbsup:

You seem to know your stuff, do you have any recommendations other than the meths for unblocking the R300 or a older 810??? :thumbsup:

Mines a pig, always has been but funnily enough, it lasted about 13 months before it REALLY started playing up!! Gawd bless ya Epson :x

After you factor in the cost of the cartridges I guess you're only paying a couple of quid for the printer. Has to be a good deal, voted hot.

But are the cartridges it comes with the same as the ones you are comparing them with?

Try finding some cleaning fluid online, usually blue or red stuff and buy a small syringe, you can either inject a bit of the fluid into the bottom of the cartridges or take the cartridge out and inject some directly into the ink inlets.


Also when you run a clean, do it once and then leave the printer to stand overnight, this tends to work better than doing multiple cleans in a row.

Thanks buddy, I'll give it a go :thumbsup:

frakison;4088413

No worries

If you do inject the fluid into the cartridges work out if the cartridges have valves in or not, most genuine epson ones do so you just have to push them open with the end of the syringe and gently squirt about 2ml inside. Most third party cartridges and older epsons don't have a valve but the method is pretty much the same.

The benefit is that you can put the cartridges back in and then run a clean and it will draw the fluid all the way through the system.

The other way is to take the cartridges out and place the end of the syringe over the little spikes that go into the bottom of the cartridges and very gently squeeze some fluid through.

Sometimes you can push the syringe down over the spikes right away but don't push too hard, if it feels too tight then try boring the end of the syringe out a tiny bit with small drill but not too much, you want a tight fit but not so tight that you might break the spikes.

I would only try the first method personally, there is less risk of damage involved.

An even easier solution would be to buy cleaning cartridges but the quality and effectiveness of the fluid that's inside is hard to judge beforehand.

Some people have success using ammonia based window cleaner as a cleaning solution but I have never tried it personally so I can't say how good it is myself.

Also these methods require you to get the cartridges out in the first place and you can do this by opening the lid and turning the printer on and then yanking the power cord out when the print head is in the middle, otherwise the head parks at the side and you cannot move it even with the power off.

I know what you mean with the cleaning carts, I tried one (albeit a cheapish one) and it had no effect whatsoever. The real pain in the bum with mine is that its only one chuffin colour, the others are fine, that makes it even more annoying that Im wasting perfectly good ink just to clear the one pot.

I've got a syringe and some green stuff (supposed to be cleaner) so I'll report back, thanks again for your help, hopefully this might change my opinion of Epson........

bump, as its back in stock
