Ink Ink Ink. It's how epson makes they money. Ink costs so little, yet the companies charge so much. If that wasn't bad enough, epson forces you to buy more, ALL THE TIME. They give you 4 seperate ink cartidges, and advertise it as a way to save money, to only replace the one you need. What they omit is that you CANNOT print if ANY of the carts are low. Which means if you have low yellow ink but full black, you can't print in black until you buy the yellow. if that wasn't bad enough, the digital chip each ink cartridge has slowly reads the ink as less and less, even if you don't use any of it. I use mine on black and white only every time, and within a few months, all my color ink was empty according to my software, even though I never printed out a single color document. Because of this there was a class action lawsuit against epson a few years back, in which the consumer won. Epson sent out of store credit to make up for it. AVOID this printer. Go with a wireless brother monochrome lazer printer, or some other brand (canon perhaps) if you need color and scanner.
