This printer will drain your color ink in 2 months even if you never print with color. The printer will not print with black ink if one of the color cartridges is empty. Black ink lasts about 100 full text pages even though advertised as 200. Terrible product.

GOOD VALUE. MORE DEPENDABLE THAN THE PRINTER IT REPLACED. WOULD BUY AGAIN & RECOMMEND TO FAMILY & FRIENDS.

Epson can do better
i purchased the xp 400 and thank god i did not get rid of my other printer. If one of the color ink is low it will not print even if the job you are doing do not require color. My previous printer gave me the opportunity to bypass color and use black only. Epson can do better, this printer is really not up to my standards. Cant take it back but it will be in my next garage sale.

Not a bad deal
I bought the XP-400 for the AirPrint capability. Install was easy, although had to look a bit for the USB port (user manual did not indicate location). When printing from PC/Windows or MacBook using wi-fi, print quality is just as GOOD as my other more expensive color printers (after setting up for type of paper and photo) -- however print speed is SLOW. When printing from iPhone 5 using AirPrint, Camera and Photos apps assume 4x6 premium glossy photo paper -- this default setting CANNOT be modified, so print quality is POOR when printing on plain paper.

Uses way too much ink!
Overall, this is a pretty decent printer for the price. But when you add the cost of buying ink ALL THE TIME, it can get pricey. It prints photographs fairly well, but I would not recommend this to someone who needs to print a lot of items in color. It goes through ink FAST. For most of us, that's a huge problem.

I would consider this a great buy. Currently, I am attending school online and print many of my ebooks, so it gets rigorous, almost daily, use by myself as well as my son. Aside from frequently running out of ink and the cost of the inks, this printer has churned out many a copies, scans and prints within the short time we have owned it. I have only used it for photographs once, but it worked great for 4" x 6" prints. I love how there are no wires, as my last Epson all-in-one was yanked off the desk by our dog running around and getting tangled in the cords when she was playing with my son.

this mac hine is Ok but I only had it less than a month when the front plate fell off. I have it taped on now. I think that they could have used a little bit better glue on it. If you are thinking about buying one I would go for a little better made machine.

gobbles up ink
I have never had to replace so much ink for a printer used for regular home use. It seems that I have to replace it at least once a week. And I don't even use it that often. Even after making the settings for draft. I need to check out other printers, because I am going broke buying ink!

I purchased the EX-400 printer less than three months ago and it's the biggest headache of any office product I've even owned. When it actually works it's OK, but half the time it tells you a hundred reasons why it can't. At present I've been struggling for an hour just to get it to print one document. If I could return it I would but the warranty was like 30 days (don't blame them for short warranty). Anyway, can't wait for a couple more pay days when I can afford to get a real printer and I can throw this one in the dump where it belongs. I'd try to sell it but I wouldn't wish this piece of junk on anyone. I would never buy another Epson product again.
