    “The print quality is OK when it works, bit the Epson...”

    Written on: 08/10/2006 by sedara (1 review written)

    The print quality is OK when it works, bit the Epson Stylus C82 is exorbitantly expensive to run! When one cartridge goes, you have to replace all 4. Costs about 50 sterling to do so, which is the price of a new printer. I have had this printer for 2 years. It looks brand, new but it won't work. The ink gets clogged up and the print heads stop working. It's so disappointing to have to throw this printer away, especially after having spent another 50 sterling to buy the cartridges, because I… Read Full Review

    Don't buy an Epson C82. Spend your money on something else.The print heads clog up rendering it completely unsuable if not used very frequently. I have unblocked the heads more than 10 times and still it won't work. To unclog the black which is the problem, I have had to put a new colour cartridge in and having had it condemmed as unrepairable I am not best impressed. Expensive white elephant… Read Full Review

    Written on: 26/02/2006 by Lebarongt (1 review written)

    My Epson C82 inkjet printer worked fine for the first set of ink cartridges. Soon after changing them with new Epson cartridges, I started having problems. I have had to dismantle the printer and attach the ink tube 2 times (not exactly the easiest task), and now the latest problem is clogged print heads. This printer cannot sit not used for a week. You are forced to print something every week (maybe this is a marketing plan by Epson to increase their revenues) or else the print heads clog… Read Full Review

    Just don't run out of ink on your Epson C82 printer or it becomes a paper weight. Even after cleaning the print heads and spending $100.00 Canadian on ink cartridges it still didn't work. This is very disappointing considering how well my Epson Stylus 850 has performed over the last 6 years… Read Full Review

    Written on: 20/10/2005 by karen tyson (1 review written)

    The Epson C82 is easy to use, prints good digital images.

    On the downside, expensive to replace ink and unless I'm missing something - all cartridges had to be replaced even to print in black and white.

    Noisy when switched on but otherwise fairly quiet. Did it's job for the time it was working… Read Full Review

    Written on: 07/09/2005 by amandar (1 review written)

    I seem to have had the same experience as other reviewers.

    I have had my Epson Stylus C82 printer for just over 2 years. I have found it noisy and expensive on ink. When I changed the magenta cartridge one day, it stopped printing in colour. Then when the black cartridge went, it stopped printing altogether. Technical support didn't seem at all surprised. The printer does not have heavy use by any means, and because of this I consider its lifespan has been very short… Read Full Review

    Epson - the disposable printer company. I bought 3 Epsons 2 years ago - one CX5200 for home use, one C82 for school, and another C82 as a birthday gift for a friend. Now that school is starting and i really need at least one to work, they all print blank pages. Coincidence or junk? You be the judge. We'll switch to HP, or Canon, or Fisher Price...anything but Epson!… Read Full Review

    Written on: 08/03/2006

    I don't complain much, but man, I will never buy an Epson product again. The print quality on my C82 was quite good, even on photographs, but that's where my praise ends. The ink cartridges were expensive, and whether you used the ink or not, you had to replace the cartidges in 6 months or the ink dried and clogged the print heads. I bought my Epson in 10/03 and in 8/05, it stopped printing color. I had an extended warranty through Best Buy, so I brought it there and they sent it to Miami. Today is March 7, 2006 and I have not received the printer. The cartridges came back in the mail about a month ago, but the printer is "lost" according to Best Buy. My advice is go with HP, although I have also had pretty good luck with my black-and-white laser printer by Dell.

    I too purchased two C82s and another All in one- (All Epson Brand). I too have had problems with the Epson C82s. It may have just been the model. One of the C82 was replaced under warranty. I later bought the R200 for home use. That works great! The all in one is still working. It came from HP printers. The reason why I switched to Epson was because of poor customer service on HP's end. Both companies will have printers that may have faults, but which company is the one to respond with better customer service? I got the run around with HP. Epson has been pretty good to me so far. I'm in the market today to replace one of the C82s. I called Epson to try to resolve the problem, but to no avail. However, I also called HP about a recall on my last HP printer, and the customer service rep was incomprehensible; not only could i not understand him, but he could not understand me! After frustration, I just told him that he didn't understand my question, and I hung up. I'm sticking with Epson.

    Epson C82 Printer.

    I agree with most reviewers. Print costs are high.
    My print heads have just clogged. Epson said to clean them six times, and in doing so, it has used up half of the ink, and still didn't fix the problem.
    Don't buy one if you intend to use it infrequently… Read Full Review

    I bought this printer brand new, from Best Buy for $129.00. All I used it for, was to print 16 photos that I took with my digital camera. When I came back to use it a month later, the print head was clogged, and no matter how many cleaning cycles I went through, it won't print anything. This printer is a piece of trash. I will never buy an epson printer again. You should save your money and go for a different brand… Read Full Review

    You must use the Epson C82 at least weekly to keep it from clogging. Once they clog it is far cheaper to TRASH them, if two cleaning cycles don't get it moving. I spent over $100.00 pumping ink through it and even tried a cleaning kit with no success… Read Full Review

    Written on: 22/05/2005 by gailnewman (1 review written)

    I've used my Epson C-82 professionally for nearly three years now. It has been the most satisfactory printer I have owned since my first dot matrix printer in 1988. I use it far more often than I use my laser printer, and I use it to print high quantities -- far in excess of those for which it was intended.

    My little workhorse broke this morning. I'm so sad. I'm online now looking for its twin… Read Full Review

    I agree. After a month long trip we returned to find out C82 would not print. And, no amount of cleaning would clear the problem. Next step is to return to CompUSA to see what they have to say. Then buy an HP?

    Written on: 26/03/2005 by Tim Bovy (1 review written)

    I agree with the negative reviews of the Epson C82. A health warning needs to be put on this printer. No matter how many times we clean the heads we can barely get a smudge of ink on the page. My advice is to avoid this printer at all costs. If you do not it will cost you a lot in money and wasted time trying to get it to perform the most basic printing tasks… Read Full Review

    Written on: 18/05/2005

    I have three C-82's It is unfortunate that I spent so much of money for them as well as the cartridges. No one is willing to service the printers. These printers are only 18 months old. C-84 was introduced right after I bought these three. And I bought one C-84. The average life of the C-82's is about 10 months. All on a sudden these printers stopped worling one after the other. On one the print head keeps moving back and forth as though it wants to print but nothing on the paper. On another I get awful black print no color - I cannot clean the heads at all. I am an engineer - so I thought I could fix and wasted a lot of my time on making it to work????

    I own 3 of these Epson C82 printers, one for over 2 years. I've had no problems with print quality or operation with any of them. Colors are clean and crisp on photos, but I mostly use them for general office printing, and the cartridges last quite a while if you are printing on plain paper.

    Written on: 11/01/2005 by rev up (1 review written)

    I would not recommend the Epson C82. I would not even give it away. Although the printer itself is relatively inexpensive, the cartridges are very expensive and this printer flies through them. Also, once one cartridge is dry the printer will not print at all (even if you choose the "black ink only" option).

    The printer is very loud - it sounds like it is about to or has broken each time you turn it on or select "print" - & is very slow to start. Once it finally starts printing, it crawls… Read Full Review
