Support PhotographyBLOG: Buy this product from one of our affiliate retailers (US first/red, UK second/blue):
super small ink carts will run out befor you
need to add paper. This machine will cost
double the amount of an older Epson 4 cart
machine, maybe 3 times as much.

Ran out of ink before I could blink - BAD PRINTER - AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!
James Johnson at 07:00pm on Tuesday, May 22, 2007
I've never owned an Epson printer I didn't like - until this one. On the positive side, the features and performance strikes a nice balance for the reasonable price this unit costs. Print quality is excellent, as one would expect from an Epson printer.
But there is the dreaded ink consumption issue that kills this model. Mine is setting in the garage, second set of cartridges empty, with a page count of around 25.
I keep reading that Epson has dealt with the ink reading issue, which appears to be the real problem - but my experience has not shown that to be reality. I recommend that if you do opt to purchase this model, do so locally where you can exchange for another model if you run into this ink issue.

Worst Printer Ever.
Taiyo at 06:06pm on Wednesday, June 04, 2008
Lasted for one ink cartridge, Refills show up as empty after running a cleaning cycle, of course impossible to print with. My First epson printer since the C82 which was also a total disaster.
I have a good epson photoscanner, but don't feel they have made a printer since they stopped making DOT Matrix 500 more than 20 years ago.
Their reliability is even worse than Brother. Am now stuck buying Canons, as I will not touch these epsons, with overpriced inks, that don't even working through a ream of paper before breakdown... totally the pits... sorry epson, no more business from me.

Horrible printes. Total disaster. No print in black with a color cartridge empty.
Abnel at 03:24am on Friday, October 03, 2008
1. Slow printer
2. Overpriced ink, runs out fast.
3. Slow Cheap Scanner.
4. Always jams.
People who designed this printer should
suffer bad karma.

If this Epson CX6000 prints 27 pages per minute then the world must be flat not round. How about one page per minute. Never again will I buy an Epson printer.
