Epson B-310N / B-500DN

If not already purchased, then DON´T buy this crappy Epson B-300 / B-308 / B-310 / B-500 / B-508 / B-510 printer. The printer are very short-lived. After about 1-2 years and ~10,000 pages unusable, paper jam, ink leaking, complete damage... The same problems occurred by FOUR! Business Inkjet printers. I have expected a little bit more from a "business printer" in the € 500 price range. Shame on you Epson!
