I bought mine in September 2011, and whizzed through the setup on it. Not perfect, however another reviewer on here has posted a good guide as to how to set it up on your WiFi network, which I followed, and had no problems.
I first started having concerns when I looked at inks... the original Epson ones do cost a fortune, even for the lesser-filled cartridges. So I shopped about, and found some cheaper, 'compatible' ones. I thought it best to just replace the individual ones as they went, rather thant the whole set - mistake! As I changed the black cartridge, an error message flashed up saying the cyan was unrecognised... which was an original cartridge. So I changed the cyan, which then told me the yellow was bad. After changing all 4 cartridges, it still failed to print, as it didnt like the magenta one!
In the end, I gave up, and replaced all 4 - again, without getting any printing from the cheaper cartridges - with an original set of Epsons. Then, halfway through the 3rd page of a 5 page document, it again said the magenta was unrecognised. Around this point, I was really starting to regret it!
Finally, last week, the paper feed refused to pick up paper. I had to stand over it while it was printing to help feed the paper in, and 4 times out of 5 it took the paper at an angle and jammed. This was the last straw, so I have returned it to Amazon, and am currently awaiting the refund. I'll be going back to HP, I think!
On the face of it this printer looks great, all singing and dancing and will be just fine for most people however....if you have an iPhone or an iPad this printer is one of just 3 or 4 Epson printers that does NOT support AirPrint so you cannot print direct from iPad etc using AirPrint.
Also ask yourself.... when did I last sent a fax. Most of us will realise this is a waste of space, I last sent a fax 5 years ago.
It was fairly easy to set up but you do need to connect it via USB to your pc while setting up the wireless, then disconect. I did get stuck during the set up as it was asking me to connect the phone line... only a power lead is in the box! Quick thinking (for me) was taking the phone line out of the back of my phone and plug it into the printer. Once set up I removed the phone line as I didn't have another lead. It works just fine without a phoneline but of course you cant fax.
When I did my first print it scared the pants off me... what a noise. I really thought I had not taken some packing out. But thats the way it is.... noisey and at least 2 or 3 times noisier than my old Canon when feeding the paper in.
Print quality is just fine, I never got around to scanning, copying or faxing... I returned it and went for an Epson AirPrint friendly model.
