    Great product - until it cr@ps out - but I bought another anyway

    • Written by from Denver

    I second most of the above comments. I'm on my second WP-4530 in two years. I run Linux and Mac OSX Mavericks. My Mac OS has never found the fax option for printing - it greys out the button. For Linux I can download drivers. Ubuntu finds drivers and installs them.

    Everything was fine on my first WP-4530 until I experienced the yellow ink issue. I'm glad to know I'm not alone. Not only did the printer dribble yellow ink on my work, the printer stopped scanning two-sided to two-sided. That feature was important to me because I do a lot of two-sided to two-sided copying and don't want to waste paper.

    I looked into other printers, but all the ones I liked were too big for my printer table, so I threw in the towel and purchased another WP-4530. Staples gave me $50 off for trading in my old one. This time I purchased an extended warranty in case my new WP-4530 cr@ps out.

    It's truly a pity this printer has issues because, otherwise, it's a great product. It's also a pity that printer manufacturers employ planned obsolescence in creating and producing their products. Even though printers have somewhat come down in price, nothing is built to last anymore.

    Great Printer Until the Jets Clogged

    • Written by from Nederland

    This was an amazing printer - fast, great quality, reliable, wireless. That is until the ink jets began to clog with the ink (if you don't use it frequently maybe). Then the ink dried inside the jets to render them useless. So now it is a very big and very expensive black ink printer only - the color jets are almost all clogged. Very upsetting, and very expensive. If the black ink didn't work either I'd give it 1 star out of 5. Epson really needs to fix this problem - self cleaning that actually works would do it.
