DISAPPOINTED IN EPSON

I spent over 600.00 on this printer and ink, got it home and printed occasionally when I needed a color print otherwise I used another black and white printer. After the first time of replacing the ink cartridge the printer started leaking all over inside the printer. I called Epson for the WP-4540 defect, they told me that they would need a 350.00 hold on my credit card until they could replace it with a refurbished one. I ask are they going to replace the ink as well with no response. This is bad customer service they should be replacing these printers for free because THE PRINTER IS DEFECTIVE; RECALL EPSON WP-4540 PRINTER!!! FIX YOUR ISSUE, DO WHAT IS RIGHT!!!.

Nice printer

For a few months

My Epson WorkForce turned out to be a ink spilling disaster after a few months. Big drops of yellow ink are ruining my print work. Would be a great plus if Epson would redesign the problem part and have it available for replacement.

Pros
Best printer I've ever owned. Until.....
Cons
Yellow ink leaking out the bottom at about 15 months
• • •

This was the best printer I ever owned, I liked everything about it. About 15 months in the leaking yellow ink problem started due to a burst ink tube. Out of warranty. Many other people have stated they are having the same problem stay as far away from this family of printers as you can.

Pros
Useful paper-weight
Cons
It leaks
• • •

I bought a WP4530. Two months in, the LCD died and they replaced the panel under warranty. It's now 6 months later, and ink has leaked all over my 50 year old mahogany desk which does not come out. It's soaked in.

When it worked it was average. Document printing is fine, but the photo quality was always dodgy at best. Color reproduction in photos is below average imho.

The unit is now standing in my garage until I can get a chance to go and dump it. A waste of AU$300+. Learn from my mistake and stay clear.

Learn from my lesson, and don't go here.

yellow ink and duplexing

I had on for a year - then the yellow ink started leaking out of the bottom, Epson sent a replacement and the yellow ink wouldn't work, they sent another replacement, same issue, they sent a third one and the gears on the duplex popped off - I won't buy another Eposn prodcut as they have very poor quality control

Excellent printer. This is the best, and most economic printer I've owned in years. We've had this model for about one full year, and use it on a very regular basis for homeschooling.

Nothing so far...

I bought this printer over the weekend. I got a fantastic price and it is an awesome printer! It was easy to set up the wireless and also has eprint capability. The only thing I had issues with had to do with one of the the ink catridges not being recognised straight away. It kept asking me to make sure the cartridge was correctly seated, and it was already. Finally sorted it out and now am very happy.

Customer service

I bought an Artison 730 and have been having trouble setting up wi-fi connection to my computer. I have called in twice to solve this problem but they are quick to give you a solution and put down the phone. The second time I called for technical help, he promised to email me instructions and it didn't come through. When I tried calling back (and this is 2.30pm Perth time mind you), the call centre was closed! Ridiculous.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
