Never had any issues like this with Epson...they would bitch if you used a
"compatible" cartridge, but still print. My 1st Epson I was refilling (free
ware to reset the chip), but Epson ink is high quality and water resistant.
I used to repair Epson dot-matrix POS printers...brilliantly engineered.

You'll find that problem with a lot of things. You can't always rely
on some customer reviews. Some issues the customer had are the direct
result of the customer not following directions and/or not
understanding something. Keep in mind, the ones leaving the reviews
could be like you. "I'm giving it a 1 star because I had trouble
installing the software" - customer may not have followed the
directions carefully, but, they aren't going to admit that.
I've actually had customers call for help because their printer
wouldn't print anything. It went thru the motions and ejected a blank
page. When I went to their home or had them bring the printer in, I'd
find the 'remove me before using' tear away sticker still attached to
the bottom of one or more cartridges.
Btw, please don't keep trying to print if you get a blank page; as,
the printer is putting droplets of ink all over the sticky side of
the remove before using sticker. It makes a mess in short order. The
ink tends to stay wet in those circumstances.
Just a few suggestions, actually. Some people in the thread have
recommended decent machines and one poster even provided a decent url
to learn more. I'd suggest you visit the url and make your own
decision based on what your needs are. Since you didn't bother to
list them with your post.
And my second suggestion, don't buy an all in one anything. The print
quality isn't the greatest and the scanner resolution is often not
the best either. Depending on make/model of the all-in-one, if one
component fails or indicates it has a problem during the power up
self test, it may not let you use the other components. Kodak all in
one comes to mind...
You're better off with dedicated hardware. IE: a printer that prints
and a scanner that scans; seperate units entirely though. The print
quality will usually be better AND the scanner will usually offer
higher resolution scans vs an all-in-one.
My post isn't specifying which posters suggested decent printers
based on service work history I have with the majority of them, and,
it's intentional on my part, due to our past. I don't think highly of
you and time hasn't changed that opinion.
People you encounter every day are fighting battles you know nothing
about. Be kind.
