Not very reliable

By Kathy

from Indianapolis

Verified Buyer

Comments about EPSON® Dot Matrix Printers; FX-890:

We purchased this Dot Matrix printer a few years ago to print occasional paperwork for a customer. It sat on a shelf for the majority of the time we owned it and only used it every 2-3 months. It quit working suddenly and we had to purchase another one due to the compatibility with the software we are using. We felt that for $320 it should have lasted longer, especially since we used it infrequently. Not really a reliable product in my opinion and unfortunately have no other options.

              Comments about EPSON® Dot Matrix Printers; FX-890:

              We need this printer because it's a Dot Matrix Printer and not many emulate with our software. Ours came with functions that are still not working like Top of Form but we are using it anyway. I even called Epson Support and they agreed with me that there was a problem. We just can't take the time out to replace it. The setup physically is difficult to understand and so is the configuration part. Too time consuming to learn.
