What is ISO ppm?
Print speed is critically important when buying a printer or all-in-one. But how do you compare print speeds when different manufacturers measure it in different ways? Now you can. Much like “MPG” ratings on new cars, there’s now an industry standard for measuring print speed, which allows for an “apples-to-apples” comparison between different printer models and brands. The International Organization for Standardization (widely known as ISO) developed this industry-approved and internationally accepted standard, specifically for inkjet printers and all-in-ones. It measures “out of the box” (default) print speeds using “real world” printing scenarios, so you can be sure you’re getting a product that performs at the speed you need.

Top customer reviews
This is a very popular machine, rating higher than most Epsons. Even with higher than average marks. 14% gave it a one or a two. That means they thought it was lousy. Add the "3's" and 1 out of 5 who think it is average or worse. I'm not dogging this machine or Epson. These are pretty good numbers for an inkjet. I've had at least five Epsons, but my most recent two (All-in-Ones) have given me an education.
What I found was, it's all about the ink systems.
I just spent A LOT of time reading about printers, ink, laser vs. inkjet, cost per page, ink waste, and cleaning print heads. And I SPENT WAY TOO MUCH TIME working on two different inkjet machines. My reading and labor did pay off. For now. I revived my Epson, but I hope I save you the headaches I've just been through. To this end, I've posted this info on three inexpensive All-in-Ones.
Here's what I've learned:
1. Inkjets waste ink when they start up, initialize, change cartridges, clean heads, or haven't printed in a while. In some machines, only about 30% of the ink goes on the page. Check Consumer Reports.
2. Inkjet manufacturers sell printers cheap and charge Chanel No. 5 prices for ink. Literally.
3. The cartridges' computer chips read empty prematurely, can't be refilled, and shut the entire printer down until the "empty" cartridge is replaced. Then, after the cartridge is replaced, they use ink to to boot up and initialize and clean heads.
4. Inkjets need to be used frequently. Otherwise they dry up, clog and/or waste ink to clean heads.
5. 1, 2, 3, and 4 means that, for the average consumer--less than daily use--inkjets are expensive or troublesome. Usually both.
6. Inkjets are best for color. Everyone says so. You want quality color, go inkjet. And more cartridges means better color gradation for graphic artists and photographers.
7. Clogged inkjets can be brought back to life. I couldn't resurrect an old machine that had been in the attic for a couple years, but I did get my recently deceased 323 back online. For now. Go to the CISS YouTube tutorials. CISS and others also have handy syringes and fluid. It's not really hard, only a bit messy.
8. Monochrome lasers cost no more than color inkjets.
9. Laser printers don't care if you use them or not. They don't have ink. It's an electrostatic process. Yes, a toner cartridge is $40+, but prints a gazillion pages, never dries out, and can't clot a print head because it doesn't have one.
**In sum, if you print lots of copies, a laser printer is cheaper. Everyone says so.
**If you only print a few b/w copies a week--as I suspect most households do--a laser printer can sit a day or a month and go right to work when you need it. That means it will actually print or copy when you need it, and it's less trouble in the long run for most users.
**If you print almost daily and use all the colors when you do (to keep all the printer heads "lubed up") then an inkjet might be just what you want. It can even be cheaper.
**If you need or want good color gradation, you want an inkjet.
Two final notes:
One, when buying a new inkjet, remember that inkjets come with tiny "starter cartridges." So you might want to buy a set of replacements with the initial cost of your inkjet. (Even a starter toner cartridge has several hundred copies.)
And two, you can save a bundle by getting aftermarket ink cartridges, refillable ink cartridges, and continuous ink systems. In my reading I haven't found a shred of evidence to suggest these cartridges cause problems. But you might want to use OEM ink at least until your warranty runs out on a new machine, usually one year.
Setup was quite easy, though the printer was not recognized on the network at first until I rebooted it a few times. And from time to time, my computer can't find it, and I have to restart it. This is disappointing as I keep it in the basement and hate having to go down stairs to reboot it before I print, but I have found if I print several things, I just go down and reboot it when I am ready and they all print at once. Annoying, but not the worst problem. I use both this, and my old Brother printer on WiFi and never had this issue with the Brother.
Black and white print quality is good and color is decent. I don't think its any better or worse than my 3 year old Brother. Ink is a lot more expensive, so I hope it lasts longer.
What bothers me:
I can't put photo paper in the bypass feeder, I have to take the whole tray out, remove the paper, and put the photo paper in. 4X6 is not a valid size option for the bypass feeder, and when I try to manually create it, the printer changes the size to 4X8. i was hoping to keep photo paper in there and print as necessary.
What really bothers me:
The printer miss-fed the day after I got it, it tried to pull two sheets of standard plain paper (HP 96 White Ink Jet Paper), and the rollers turned without the paper advancing. It kept on printing when there was no paper. First of all, it should not have miss-fed on plain paper. Second of all, the printer head printed all over the rollers. Most printers that support border-less printing have a catch tray, they don't print all over themselves. Ever since the miss feed, I have 4 black stripes on the back of every page I print, so duplex is now pointless. I called Epson and went through it with them. There answer was that I need to send the unit in for servicing. A printer should not be able to print over its own rollers and damage itself in a way so that it needs servicing when there is a simple miss feed. Also, needing serving after 2 days really bothers me.
I arranged for a replacement unit through Amazon, and hopefully that was just a bad unit. I have not tried scanning yet. When I get the new one, I will update my review to include scanning. I will also hopefully update it to say that the one I received was a fluke. My fingers are crossed that the new one works better.
And if anyone knows a way to use photo paper in the bypass tray please comment on this.
So, the new printer arrived, I set it up, and it worked perfectly as a printer. Then I tried to scan on the flat bed. There was a horrible sound, I only got half of my page, and then the screen on the printer turned red and said there was an internal error and that I had to restart. I tried it again with the cover open and the bar moves about halfway, gets stuck, tries turning sideways, and then jams. Same error, restarted it, and tried the feeder for scanning. I just get the message that there is an internal error and to contact Epson.
After this I downgraded my rating to 1 star, and will be returning the second unit. Two units that don't work on arrival is unacceptable to me.
