I was excited about buying this printer: Epson XP-310 as at the time I did, it was reduced from $350. to 40. at Amazon.ca. Well, it might be worth 40. but it certainly would not be worth over $300!!!
The set-up was a pain...I usually set up a new printer in less than 1/2 hour, but with this one over an hour later, I was still trying to get it to work wirelessly. Finally gave up and plugged it in using the USB, which I did not want to have to do. Thank goodness I had a spare USB cable here as there isn't one included with this printer.
The display panel takes a bit of getting use to, how to navigate the screen.
Plastic is thin, rather cheap looking. My old HP printer that was about the same price as this one was a lot sturdier.
As is the case now with most printers and cartridges, it's actually cheaper to buy a new basic printer than to replace the cartridges in an old one. Such a waste of materials and resources but it's something a lot of people do. Why do these companies continue to charge such a big price for replacement cartridges???
I think this printer will work for the limited amount I need it but it's nothing special from what I've noted so far. And as I said above, the set up should have gone a lot smoother than it did. Not user-friendly in this respect. For eg. There is suppose to be a prompt on the wireless set up, when to remove the USB cable (using it just for set up) but that never came up on the screen.
One plus I have noted already, the printing is nice and clear.
I'll probably go back to HP next time, still like their printers better overall.
Overall rating for this product: Fair. 2 out of 5
