Epson Stylus NX415 All-in-One Printer


If you're in the market for a new all-in-one personal printer, the NX415 makes a good choice. With the pricing currently being offered by Epson, it's an excellent value, and you should be able to save on ink and paper with this unit. Wifi or Ethernet...

Epson NX415 Printer: Good scanner. Don't buy to print


Straight from EPSON's website: FAQ Q: Can the printer still print if an ink cartridge is expended or not installed? A: No. The printer will not operate if any cartridge is expended or removed. It's best to always have extra cartridges on hand. What...

My schools use HP and Epson so I figured they where a trusty brand. I picked this up at BM store and was happy with the printing and scanning results..until I ran out of ink

I've NEVER printed anything in color since I bought this printer. I've ONLY printed sheet music in black and white, draft quality, and greyscale. THAT'S IT! Yet I've had to buy Cyan cuz it ran out first, then the next color cartridge, what gives? This...

Cannot Recomend-Please do not waste your money.


I've learned a lesson. I should have done my research better. Mainly I should have priced replacement ink before buying. This Epson needs 4 seperate cartidges were most printers only need 2. You cannot buy all 4 in a single package so you end up...

Newegg shipped it fast ; Purcahsed 8/3/2009 from NewEgg, arrived promptly and undamaged ; It still scans ; That's it for the pro's

1) Ink- Goes through ink faster than a 20.00 cheapy ; 2) If you run out of say Black ink well forget printing in blue even if it's full ; 3) Blue will not be full because even setting in grayscale it uses color ink. I have no idea how this does this....

Very Disappointed!


Fair to good print output. Basic print speed fair. Newegg's shipping awesome

Had to send this back under the warranty. A paper misfeed during photo printing apparantly caused the print head to clog. Couldn't clear it with multiple head cleanings. I also own another epson, model 500. Same thing. I won't be buying Epson again

Not So Awesome


Because Epson uses a chip system, it's really hard to use refurbished cartridges (what a surprise!), which is not lovely for a grad student like me. It's an OK machine, but takes a while and just isn't nearly as good as the simple Epson I had for 4...

3-in-1 is AWESOME ; I love having a scanner

Goes through ink really quickly ; Cartridges expensive ; draft print setting is completely useless ; if you run out of one ink cartridge the whole thing won't work

Great product


If given the choice would buy it again.

Product was super easy to setup right out of the box. Copier and scanner are great to have. Scan options included in the software are fantastic; scanner works really well on pictures - I've scanned quite a few old photos and used Picasa from Google to...

It is kind of loud, and ink is used up pretty quickly when printing color pictures. Saying that though...I've had the printer for about 6 months, and I've printed about 20 photos, and 50ish text/project pages, and I'm just getting down to the bottom of...

It's brand new and I need a new printer


Cheap printers in general are just not worth the investment, but I do expect even low-end models to be at least capable of printing properly right out of the box. This Epson can't even manage that. I've worked with my fair share of printers and know...

Nice, compact design - the printer folds up in various places to keep itself contained and keep dust out ; Easy interface - I like Epson GUIs. There's a lot of options, but unless you really want to tinker with all the fancy stuff, it's very easy to...

This is the worst printer I've ever owned. I bought it because I've used higher-end Epson printers and love them, but right out of the box this thing worked worse than the old HP printer it was replacing ; About the only thing it does well is print...
