Epson 3880 Dead in under a month
Feb 15, 2013

I got this printer January 17 and it died today, February 15. It showed an error code '150' and when I called Epson, they told me it was due to an internal sensor failure  - and it was fatal.

They're sending me a brand-new unit (under 30-days ownership) so I can't complain too much since I've already used up more than half the inks and they'll supply me with a new set. However it does give me pause.

Has this happened to anyone else?

Should I be thinking about getting an extended Epson warranty?
