Epson Stylus NX430 Small-in-One™ All-in-One Printer
Nice and new
I just set up my printer and found the directions very clear and was able to complete the setup with ease. I am not that technical so was almost in a panic when I started, but I feel so happy that I was able to do it on my own. I have only printed three things so far, but everything looks very good. Thank you for providing a setup that the average person can follow.

Epson NX430 Install on a MacBook Pro w/Lion 10.7
I offer this as a review by someone who has little experience with this recently acquired laptop, it's operating system and with wireless printing in general.
First, about the printer. I looked at all-in one wireless printers for several weeks and the local office supply folks are probably glad I finally made up my mind, as I printed, scanned and copied on just about every unit in the store. Note: they wouldn't let me try the print shop printers. I found that his printer provided the best print and copy quality of units costing hundreds more. The colors were rich and full bodied and the text was very crisp with sharp edges, almost laser like quality out of an ink jet. I primarily use my printers for text and scanning documents, but do a fair amount of copying in both B & W and color and this product exceeded my expectations on all these points. It is a relatively quiet unit and is fast enough for all (of my) general home computing needs. The only down side, if this is one, is that I found the cost of the ink for this printer slightly higher than others in its class while doing the comparison. However, given the quality of the output from the unit, I think the slight increase in the expense is justified, especially since I don't print photos on a regular basis.
I needed wireless because of my laptop purchase and was concerned, to say the least, about setting this up after reading some of the reviews by others and their results during my review process. To my relief, I found I had no issues at all. I unpacked the unit and the first thing out of the box was a piece of paper telling me not to use the installation CD for my PC/OS and go to the support website for instructions. I realized later that this was the key to the uneventful installation (along with having my network name and password handy). The mechanical set up took about 5 minutes (be sure to remove ALL of the blue pieces of tape). I then went to the Epson website and followed the instructions. I chose the drivers and utilities for my OS, started the download and had it installed, printing and scanning wirelessly from my laptop about 20 minutes later.
All in all, this was an exceptional experience with an equally exceptional product of it's type, and I would recommend this all-in one printer to anyone. Good things do come in small packages, just take your time and follow the instructions.

I especially like the size - small and compact, yet does it all. The print quality is the best - as good if not better than my color printer at work which cost a lot more money. But the biggest reason we bought this printer is because of its wireless capabilities. No more unplugging a printer, moving it to the kitchen and hooking it up to my laptop - wonderful.

compact but useful
This item works great. For the size it does a great job. My previous review stated it had no scanner but I must correct this statement. I meant to say I wished it had a fax service. It does everything else but fax. Thank you. Nice machine.

Great printer, not so great ink
I've had nearly no problems with my printer. The remote option is great. I don't have to be stuck in one place to get things printed off.
The ink, although great, would be nice if I could have the option to buy other brands (store brands) that are less cost.

Epson Stylus NX439 Small in One`
This is a great printer most of the time. I did have a problem when the black ink was running out, it gave me the choice of using the other colors together instead of the black ink. I used this feature a few times but later after black ink was replaced the default color of ink was pink for some unknown reason and I could not restore black ink. I gave up for awhile, uninstalled and reinstalled printer with disk and then updates. The printer worked fine again with black ink as default.

Confusing to install on Chromebook
Trust me...I have no problem, so far, with the NX410 printer. My rating at 3-stars is solely due to the awful experience I had getting it registered to my Chromebook and the Google iPrint Cloud. It is not easy to do and very frustrating. Epson's site makes you wander around in the dark looking for instructions (or even a little help). Finally did a global search and found an obscure hint that led me to the process. Once found, it went just fine. Download of updated software went quite well.
Hey Epson...do two things for us...make your ink more affordable and modernize your support site to make these things easier!!!

Epson Stylus NX430 Small-in-One™ All-in-One Printe
Works well, Held up well to being transported to and from work site daily except the intake paper holder which of course one pin broke and now leans to one side. Ink a bit expensive, and does not last long with the amount of correspondence and hard copy files I contend with. I understand they now printing on both sides with the newer version, which is possible with this one as long as you flip the paper and reload fast enough. Just hope they do not stop production of the ink cartridges before it dies, as I have experienced with other printers.

Would NOT Recomend
I have had this printer for a little over a year now and have bad countless issues. First, not very easy to setup. You must set up the wifi and connect it to the computer with the disk which may not seem too difficult, but it actually is. Also, Epson does not give you a cord to make wired connections which I needed when the wifi wouldn't work. After all that, it goes through ink too fast and the quality of my prints is horrible and it does not offer good solutions to fix the issues.
