I researched this printer online, and buyers had volumes of nothing but bad things to report about it. You cannot refill the cartridges because they have a chip in the cartridge itself that prevents it. Also, many complained that, even when only printing in black and white, this damn thing shoots out blue or red ink before shooting out black, so you'll run out of color ink even though you aren't even using it! The paper feed is a joke and will not pick up paper without manually jamming it into the feeder.
In my mind, Epson clearly is trying to take advantage of consumers with the old Micro$oft, if-we-can get-our-hand-in-your-pocket-once-we-can-keep-it-there-for-the-rest-of-your-life, business philosophy.
I understand Epson makes other models of scanners and printers that work well with Linux, but the damage is already done.
I wouldn't buy another Epson printer, even if it was the only way I could print with Linux. I'd just do without.
