Product Reviews
Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value We use three printers spooled together to print invoices ever month. Outside of the occasional paper jam (no alarms on printer) that can result in lost invoice runs, we have successfully used this or its earlier version for over 20 years without a major failure before normal or expected EOL. January 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dot Matrix Reliability We put these printers to use in... less than favorable environmental conditions, and they work flawlessly. Have several in use and would be severly disappointed if they were discontinued. June 5, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Loud! The printer does it's job, but alot of times the paper gets jammed up and also it is TOO LOUD!! Does Epson make any other printers similar to this one that isn't so loud? IF anyone knows please advise.....thanks :0) May 17, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Printer had its moments The company i work for has 3 of the these printers, since the people have upgraded to newer windows 7 machines all has broken since. They do not print the way it used to ! Pastel invoice paper and standard consignment paper now never lines up and never does what we need February 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Epson FX-890 As always, Epson is the one to use. It is a very sturdy and consistent printer. Very user friendly. Have never had an issue with it other than operator error. January 16, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by GOOD DOT MATRIX PRINTER, EASY TO USE. THE FX-890 IS A GOOD PRICE, EASY TO SET UP, AND PRINTS VERY QUICKLY. I USE IT FOR INSURANCE FORMS 1500'S AND HAVE NO PROBLEM. MY ONLY CONCERN IS I CANNOT GET IT TO PRINT DARK ENOUGH. I HAVE PUT IN A NEW RIBBON AND SAME PROBLEM. September 5, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by FX-890 Impact Printer These printers are worthless. My company bought the first one in July 2010, the Tear Off/Bin button stopped working after 13 months of use. We purchased 2 brand new printer of the same model recently, on both new printers the same button did not work. This is substandard quality on all three printers. I will not purchase another Epson dot matrix printer. August 22, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by The printer is good quality and has a lot of good features for a small business but i am having trouble finding a color ink cartridge for it since it says it is color capable. November 12, 2010
