EPSON FX 2190 Driver for Windows 7 Professional

Trying to match an older dot matrix printer with a new Windows 7 OS can be a daunting endeavor, to say the least. Locating the driver via Google and Epson's easily accessible supprot web-site made the task childs play. It worked seamlessly without a hitch. A big thumbs-up to Epson for keeping in tune with todays technology.

Does not print properly when you upgrade your OS

This printer would be great if it worked the way it was supposed to. Currently, the printer will not do continuous feed when the operating system is updated. This seems to be a pretty widely known issue with dot matrix printers and yet there is no patch for it. I have a brand new printer, a brand new computer, and they won't speak to each other. I understand that dot matrix is an older technology, but for small businesses, it works for label printing on a large scale - so why can it not work ...

I currently lose three labels from each section that print out blank. This is a serious problem for my business. Please fix it, Epson!

constant Jams on 14inch paper

By

from San Francisco

The 2180 seems to be the reduce-cost-to-produce version of the 2170. Second tractor not included except at extra cost, Smaller capacity ink ribbon. No out feed paper guide. Manual on disk that computer can't read. Driver wont load in Windows 98. AND 14 inch paper constantly jams at the right side unless paper starting point is advanced about 3/4 of an inch. A real down grade of a good product. But what is the alternative? Recommended only if you cant find a 2170.

My Fault

By

from Rome, NY

Printer seems to be good. Only thing is that I should have checked that it only had one tractor. My 2180 had 2 and that was great, didn't have to switch the tractor or paper.

Sad Shipper

By

from NC

This 2190 replaced a DFX 5000+. The 2190 started out fine but after two weeks it started printing slower and slower. Now I can send a batch of 20 print job through and it will take about 30 seconds per page. This printer isn't even a month old.

Win7 drivers not included

There is a white paper saying Win7 drivers are not included in cddrivers (only comes Win95-Vista) The generic Windows 7 drivers dont have all fonts.
