We had this printer for about a year worked well so far but now yellow ink all over inside and on the paper when it's prints.
Has a defect with leaking ink.

It would be a great printer, except it has a flaw of spewing yellow ink on everything. After researching on the internet, I found that this is a common problem with this model. Steer clear.
Love this printer, BUT...

This has been a wonderful color printer for our office, offering great color and good speed. However, it has recently developed the same Yellow ink leak that others are mentioning and the printer is currently unusable. We've changed cartridges and cleaned the heads, but nothing works. The color balance doesn't have enough yellow at the same time there is a streak of yellow ink down the middle of the print job. I have started the tech support process and will update this review as I see whether Epson treats this as a design flaw. For now I would encourage you to be very careful on choosing this model of printers.

I purchased my Epson WP-45-40 on 04/27/2012; I went to print today and my paper came out with yellow ink all over it. So I print approx. 8 sheets of paper to clear the yellow in up. Well no luck so I changed the cartridge and to my surprise my next in was yellow ink running all over my paper. But here's the kicker; I also purchased a warranty for the printer. I called and was informed it would take 10 days before I would receive a replacement printer. Oh not just 10 days but 10 business days. WTheck, I'm a small company that completely rely on my printer for production....

Worked good for a about a year. But add me to the list of people having yellow ink issues. For a while it had problems printing yellow and now it leaks yellow profusely which makes the printer useless. I've had the printer a little over a year.
