Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Epson In the House! Set it up easily by reading everything first and taking my time. Program disc loaded quickly and guided me through the process smoothly. WiFi loading was no problem. Had trouble figuring out where the print completed tray was but finally found it!. Bottom load paper tray is easy to use as I had another brand years ago with a similar load feature. Will have to get used to four ink carts instead of the two in my old printer! Have read Epson ink is more economical than most so I will have to find out for myself. I like the size, color and screen of the unit. It is about the same size as my previous unit so takes up same space--and with one less USB cord.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Good Product -- Poor Policy I just unpacked and installed an Epson XP-520 on my MAC PRO running Yosemite. Very easy to install and the printer works fine. Additionally, I was pleased to receive a code for a 10% discount at the Epson Store for registering the purchase. I was NOT PLEASED that, after ordering a new set of ink cartridges at the Epson Store (list price $100!!!), the 10% discount DID NOT WORK. So I went back to the discount notice and found that, at the bottom of the page, in 9 point type, "Consumer Inks" were disallowed. Bummed. 5 stars for the product, 1 star for consumer-friendly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from I Love my XP-520! Love the ink cartridges This is the easiest printer I have ever used. The duplexing feature is stellar. If there is an interruption in the printing, for example: one color needs to be changed in the middle of your 35 page doc of the 2nd side, the machine will remember where you are, and go there!!!! Love the front loading! Love the foot print. The only thing I would change: the paper tray. I would make the paper tray sturdier. Make it a touch higher up in the machine so it would slide better. I know that would make it taller, but it would be worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Eats up ink, constant problems with missing lines This printer eats up ink like you cannot believe. I just filled up yellow and magenta, printed one colour picture which printed out horrendously with missing lines. Printed off 15 black and white pages (which also printed horrendously, with the shaded gray printing in rainbow colours?). I ran a few nozzle checks and did some cleanings which did not help. Only to find out that I have only 1/4 yellow and magenta left! I am not kidding! The ink cartridges are TINY and expensive. You cannot even get them refilled at a refill store. They don't refill these ones. DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER! I saw some awful reviews like mine and didn't listen! Off I got to buy another printer! Big regrets.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Electrical engineer / advanced user had problems When i read the reviews and found that so many people complained about this printer i thought it was user error. But i had the exact problem. The printer did not recognize the ink cartridges and even after removing and replacing it still would not. I have used Epson printers for years, but this one is a dud. Returned it and am considering the 620 .

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from It works! Just installed Epson X520 and it was easy (I am Not a Techno Nerd. At 76 I wouldn't be allowed in that club). Just returned another - not Epson - printer this a.m. after 4 hours of trying to set it up yesterday. My Epson set up took about an hour. So pleased at the simplicity of set up and simplicity of operation. It's just what I wanted.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Excellent printer - poor instructions I partially installed my XP-520 printer. The sample printouts were great. My problem is with the instructions. I have been unable to connect with WiFi. I ran an Epson troubleshooter and received summary called "Epson Printer Connection Checker There were 3 things to check. 1.Are the router settings correct? 2.Is the network address correct 3.Is the privacy separator setting turned off? No suggestions as to what these are and where to find them. Everyone that uses a computer is a Geek. Do people who write instructions, ever run it by the everyday average person?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Epson printer XP-520 This printer is so easy to use that even I being a senior citizen and having absolutely no knowledge of how to use a lot of machines out there on the market am enjoying my first ever printer. After my son informed me to get this model because he too has one, he installed it for me and then showed me how to use it. I am now able to print, scan and even print pictures whenever I want and I can do it easily by following the screen's steps and of course the steps my son gave me. The only problem with this model is that in just less then one month of use, the pop up panel that shows the screen and buttons is now defected because it WILL NOT click back in place and close the panel like it should be but I can live with that. Other then that this Epson printer is a must for any person that is not too knowledgeable about mechanical things.
