Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Epson Stylus DX4000 Multifunction Printer (Electronics)
Bought this printer for working from home. Scanner is excellent generating jpeg images of documents or pictures. Printer chews ink cartriges initially and models since Feb 07 have been designed by Epson not to work with generic cartridges.
At least one supplier now claims to have cracked the problem.testing it out.
Note - ALL of the colour cartridges must contain ink for the printer to work - even in black and white.
Quality of print (text or picture) is good - rate of printing is slow.
Probably a good option for someone not printing much and needing a good scanner. Acts nicely as a stand alone ( if slow) colour photocopier.If the latest generic ink cartridges turn out to work with the latest printer then it will have been a reasonable value purchase.

Dr. I. Cox says:
I have been succesfully using the cartridges from " Printerinks.com" for some years - latest purchase February 2012.
The Printer / scanner / photocopier is still working producing standard colour on paper . Don't recommend using it for photos.
I have a Canon Pixma ( 4500) for A4 photos - this also works very well with the Printerinks generic cartridges on Epson paper
Note added 17/4/2013 - printer still working on generic carridges from Printerinks although Epson now seems to be warning me that some of the coloured ones ( yellow) will not work - have they tried to block the software?
Sofar still working OK - use mainly for text and photocopying
