4.0 out of 5 stars Printer is great... just don't rely on the wifi connection with a Mac, 17 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Epson Expression Home XP-212 All-In-One Printer with Wi-Fi (Accessory)
I bought this printer from our local supermarket rather than Amazon, because it was a blue beer voucher cheaper there, and we could stick it in our trolley and take it straight home.

We were tempted by the WiFi connectivity as my wife's iMac is in a different room to the router, and not having to mess with more cables was appealing. We also selected it over the xp-412 model that was next to it on the shelf due to space restrictions in her office. Initially all went well, until we tried to connect it to the iMac via WiFi. Checking the router status on my Linux machine showed the printer was indeed connected to the network, but try as I might - like another reviewer - I just couldn't get the iMac to connect. In the end I stuck the USB cable in and it came up straight away. Prints well, good colour reproduction and so far no other major issues.

Also downloaded the Epson iPrint app on my Android 'phone, and successfully printed a photo from the 'phone within seconds. That was a little spooky. Cool, but spooky.

By the way my Linux machine found it wirelessly no problem as a network printer and I had successfully printed a test page within 30 seconds. This and the other reviewer's issues mentioned above would suggest Epson and Apple need to bang their heads together regarding the iMac and WiFi issues. So, maybe one to avoid if your only way if connecting will be wirelessly.
