We bought this printer about 2 years ago on clearance (yet somehow they carry it again). It was to replace an older, slower dot matrix printer. We needed something to do multipart forms for our warehouse so we could print through two pieces of paper. This is used when we pick orders so we write on one sheet and it goes through to the second.This printer is light years faster than our old printer. It's very reliable and we hardly had any problems during the 2+ years we've owned it, until recently it keeps jamming constantly.I think that track record is pretty decent for a printer we leave on 24 hours a day and is in a warehouse enviorment which is a little dusty. It's held up for quite some time. The only thing we've done occasionally is blow air into it to get any little pieces of dust or paper out.The printer is very fast. I can print a whole 8.5" x 11" page in about 30 seconds when setting the mode to HSD. Our old printer would probably have taken about 5 minutes a page!The printer itself has a manufacturer's warranty of 3 years, which I think is very good. I'm going to call in now and try to get service. My only real gripe is that their tech support sounds like it's based in India. I didn't really care for them, but they did go through some basic troubleshooting before they told me to call a local service center under warranty. I had to keep repeating myself on the phone because the call seems kind of "lagged" probably because the people are so far away.I'd have rated it a 5 but I had a few minor snags:- It not started jamming recently. I'm sure it can easily be fixed, though.- Being that it jammed, I was going to try a different paper feed path. It has 3: rear, bottom, and front. I can't figure out how to get bottom working, even though I read the manual. The printer was missing parts when we initially bought it, so we can't even try the front feed.This printer is an excellent value for the price ([$]and I still think it's an excellent value for what it currently sells for on Staples [$] The ribbons are cheap and last a long time.

We own two of these. They jam ocasionally and even worse they don't print the text correctly all the time. Often the top and bottom half of letters are seperated or the letters are vertically squished.

I sent one in for repair on the spacing issue. They could not find anything wrong. I have replaced one with a direct thermal printer and I will probably be replacing the other with a different dot matrix.

I don't have much experience with dot matrix printers but I am not impressed. The speed was great but it doesn't really matter if it doesn't print right.

Not very reliable

Comments about Epson® FX-890 Dot Matrix Printer:

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® FX-890 Dot Matrix Printer:

          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.
