looking at the reviews on amazon a lot of people have problems with compatible inks.

Yeah - but the original inks aren't pricey either. 16XL pack black for £13!

Scrapped few of those ink printing multifunction devices. If you don't print daily, it's better to go for laser one.

These are ****, avoid. The nozzles get blocked.

Had this printer for over a year no probs what so ever, even android phone software works faultless.

The chips used on 3rd party carts can be very much a hit or miss. One of the most significant issues is that they over-report the ink actually remaining in the cart, meaning that the printer can inadvertently run the nozzles dry causing all sorts of issues such as blockages in the future.

Other times the chips don't work at all and the printer will reject the cartridge.

I go though about a dozen sets of 3rd party carts on a similar Epson printer a year, I pry off and keep the chips that over-report and transplant them in to new carts with dead chips. It does mean having to do a bit of guesswork when it comes to replacing empty carts, but considering the money I'm saving, it's something I'm happy to put up with.

Where do you get your ink from?

​Apparently yes if you use third party ink.

Bought this last year with the £30 cashback offer.

Utter @&*# ended up in the tip after endless ink & WiFi network issues. Avoid

Mine got clogged up as soon as I tried one and never worked again.

I've now had 5 of these, 4 replacements within 1 year for the same issue. The nozzle tube from the ink head is badly designed, and if the pad doesn't keep the head wet it dries out. This happens quicker with compatible inks but it still happens with original.

Avoid this one like the plague unless you got it with free set of inks and £50 cash back like I did.

Pay a little more, get a laser, and you will never go back.

Had one of these from amazon it clogged up after a few days and when it did work printing quality was awful replacement was also useless and was sent back. Avoid this "printer"

Laser printers are not as good for photos the dpi (dots per inch) resolution is much lower than a comparable inkjet.

Printing Resolution 5,760 x 1,440 dpi for Epson, a typical laser jet around this price will give you 600 x 600 dpi.

Buy an ink jet if you do photo printing, although it's expensive if you're doing many colour prints. Buy a laser if you want cheap crisp mono printing and some colour printing such as charts and graphs.

Im puzzled about people who say they bought this last year / people who had issues all year.

This printer came out really recently - on Amazon since April this year for pre-orders, announced by epson in May!?

+£9.69 UK delivery. Can you please update the price.

You're looking at 3rd party. It appears Amazon one is back ordered now for delivery in 2-3 weeks, and that's free for the £69.99 price.

PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER. I've had two of them and had nothing but problems. The ink isn't too expensive but needs replacing way too often. Out of cyan ink? oh well, can't even print in black. Also at least 25% of the time it doesn't print at all and the only thing you can do to fix it is a hard reset. I will never buy another Epson printer again.

​Its pretty standard for brands to update the model number when it's essentially the same thing, with a few small changes.

This is essentially the same as the WF2650 last year on here.

I got the WF-2650 thanks to HUKD over a year ago. Inks are fine, I now get single colour slim cartridges cheap off ebay, but when I got the machine, it was with a set of cartridges as part of the deal,and made a profit BUT 1 word of warning...I used the machines email address for vouchers, so I didn't need to print them out, as they would simply go direct to printer. Luckily I was home when 1 such print job started, and printed NOT a voucher, but PAGE after PAGE,ROW after ROW of x's. Something to do with the format of the voucher, so I was told. Had I not been in, it wouldn't have stopped until I'd run out of ink, or paper oO

That aside, It's a good machine (I think) a bit...clunky/plastic sounding, but a LOT of machine for the money

Looking at the amazon reviews again I see they are for different variants of this model but they bundle all the reviews onto the same page.

Reading this has reminded me to print something on my inkjet. I mainly print on the laser under the stairs.
Edit: I'd forgotten how slow an inkjet is. I only bought it because of HUKD and use it as a scanner. Its comparable to dial up and infinity.

True, the ink just dries up and runs out. It became the most expensive printer to run. I soon got rid of mine and replaced it with a colour laser printer.

I agree that (on paper, excuse the pun) you get better photo prints on an inkjet when paired with photo paper. But by the time you bought the photo paper (and used original ink) you might as well just get the few photos processed at your local store, it works out cheaper than printing your own and a lot better quality. Look at boots, as a new customer you could print 25 photos and get them delivered for 99p. Check out this price comparison for photo prints and see how cheap they actually are :- MSE Photo prices.

DPI is over rated on inkjets printers and you can have a lower DPI that's better quality and better looking than higher DPI. Personally for me the glossy waterproof photos I get my my cheap Dell laser cant be differentiated from the prints from the Epson WF until you get really close but who really looks at photos at macro distances.

Does it do duplex scanning

They are adequate, nothing more, nothing less. For the best results you need an inkjet with more than just CMYK, try to go for one with 5 inks. And if possible one that uses dye ink over pigment (HP, Epson and Cannon typically use dye inks for colour), keep away from Lexmark! Dye ink gives much more vibrant colours and are better for photos. The negative is that dye ink is prone to fading, so if you use it for photos and they are in sunlight they will fade quicker.

This might be a good read for some insight.

Does this duplex scan?

Just as a counterpoint to some of the negative posts, I also got the £30 deal last year (which is the 2650, but looks to be virtually identical to the 2750) - I've found it very good... reliable wifi, decent speed & quality, adf scanner very handy (though not duplex, not sure about the 27). After the initial set of official inks I've been only using compatibles (bought in bulk off ebay)... I think about 4 or 5 sets at this point. Other than the initial "unofficial cartridge" whining when you put a new one in, it just gets on with it. I'm happy with it (especially for thirty quid!).
