Epson Complaint - Rash Of Epson Printers That Just Stop Working--Do Not Buy Epson!
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- We've had a rash of Epson printers that just stop printing--a 2200, C62 and a C64, all used on different workstations by different people. Each printer did the same thing--it acts like it is printing, but nothing prints on the page. We've tried every type of diagnostic, we tried countless head cleanings (and wasted ink), and no go. We've even reloaded the drivers. All three failed over a period of about 1 1/2 years starting in 2007, so it wasn't all at once. I used to love Epson--my old, old 1520 was a serious workhorse (we bought it in 1998--and we still have it). It put up with all sorts of abuse. The three printers I mentioned above quit with almost no use on them at all--all three were almost new. All I can say is--DO NOT BUY EPSON PRINTERS!! They are obviously cheap foreign-made crap!!! And, all the things said about lousy customer service and suspicious ink usage is all true too. If Epson keeps this up, they will go out of business. I will NOT be buying any more Epson products, and I plan to go online to as many sites like this to spread the word about them.
If you value your money (who doesn't?), then don't waste it on Epson. I have three useless printers sitting in a closet that are going to end up in the trash tomorrow. Wasted money.
