Epson WorkForce 30 Inkjet Printer
NOT best for black and white printing
Printer works well for both color and black and white prints, but if an ink cartridge runs out the device will not print. This includes all ink- yellow, red, blue and BOTH blacks. Very frustrating. When you buy the combination pack of ink it only comes with ONE black ink. Epson designed the machine to only run when BOTH blacks have ink in them, so you would have to buy the combination pack AND an additional black just to print. I work in a school and need to buy my own ink. I bought this printer knowing that most of my printing would be in black and white, but wanted to know that I would have the capability to print in color if needed. I did not realize that I would have to purchase as much ink as I do. This is an expense I did not expect when purchasing the printer. The basic price of the unit may seem reasonable, but once you realize how much ink you need to buy, you will find it is not.

Epson Workforce 30
After about 4 years, my Epson CX8400 printer stopped working so I searched for a replacement. Locally, Best Buy and Staples didn't have anything I wanted and even gave me incorrect info about Epson's products, so I went on line and found this printer at Epson's website. It was very difficult for me to locate one in stock because of high demand, but I finally did, altho it cost $40 more than the least expensive listing on Amazon.
Now that I've been using it for a month, I find that it works better than any other printer I have ever owned. In particular, when printing to bright while card paper, the color and quality are very good, and the margins are smaller than previously seen and accurately calculated. On premium glossy paper, the prints are exceptional. However, the printer requires C, Y, M and TWO Bk cartridges and it seems to use more ink than my previous printer.

This is a truly great printer. It's reliable and accurate and the print quality is fantastic. A terrific value. I use only Epson printers.

An excuse to sell ink
printer drains ink. Constant cleaning empties color inks even if you only print in B&W. Will not print with empty color inks even if you select black / gray scale printing. Dont but it

Boss Little Printer
I am a Professional Real Estate inspector and produce multi page reports in the field. This printer is big enough to handle the job, but small enough to carry with me in a Salesmans Case. I burn a lot of paper and ink and this printer gets it done. I keep two new printers in the box in a closet as an emergency backup.
All my office and field printers are EPSON. Way to go EPSON!

I find it works well with heavier papers such as card stock, while many others do not.
