Epson M205 All-in-One Mono Ink Tank Printer – User Review

It was with much expectations that I bought Eposon M205 Print/Scan/Copier Ink Tank Inkjet printer, three months back, from But within these three months, I had to call the customer service center thrice to repair the printer. The basic problem with this printer is with its paper feeder. The paper feeder of the printer (not ADF), is noisy and seriously faulty. The printer does not intake the papers properly. And even if it does, many times, the printer would simply eject the paper without printing anything, as if the paper was not inserted properly. It is a frustrating exercise to print 10pages in this printer.

Another problem with this printer is with its paper-jam-sensors. Even if no paper is jammed inside the printer, it would show that some paper is jammed inside. Switching the printer off-n-on for two to three times, would magically remove the jammed paper, and resolve the problem.

The Customer Service Center of Epson in Kochi, Kerala is another frustrating point. They would never answer the phone in their published phone number. One has to go to that place and invite the person to repair the printer. Once they could not even repair the printer at one go, but made me wait for a week for obtaining some part of this faulty printer.

On a whole, I would not recommend this printer to anyone. If Epson is kind enough to take mine back and refund my money, I would be much obliged !


In Love with Nano..!

The transition from bike happened after a sting of stiff neck experience and discovery of a vestigial bone call cervical rib, that was squeezing my nerves.  The Doctor said “no more biking”. I have always maintained that a two weeler is the best mode of transport, in kochi, unless you have the luxury of time and a chauffeur. I didnt have both.

During the initial days after the forced transition, I used Ford Figo. The driving experience in city was so horrible, I hated my life, being wasted on traffic jams. There were days I was forced to drive around Kerala High Court, three four times, just to find a parking space. In two weeks, I decided to buy a compact car like Tata Nano or Mahindra Riva, for the sake of convenience. After some consultation with my auto-enthusiastic friends, I squared on Tata Nano Twist XT.

The on-road price of Nano Twist XT is 2.60Lakhs, in Kochi. The car was delivered on the third day of booking, and I have been using it for a month.

Exhilarating, Liberating and Economical !!! are the terms I would use to deacribe the driving experience of Nano Twist. The car is so easy to handle, park and drive in city-traffic, it is the ideal second car, one can opt for. The seating is perfectly suited for a six feet like me, unlike the deep seating of most of the popular cars. Nano can zip through the unofficial two-wheel lane, like an auto-rickshaw. The acceleration is mind-blowing and without comparison. It doesnt have the infamous kudu-kudu-auto-rickshaw sound generally attributed, at-least inside the cabin. The car is spacious, despite the compact size. Honestly speaking,  I’m in love with Tata Nano. I dont know why people is so prejudicial about it, and thinks so low about it. Nano is the best car and the most used one, among the five cars I have at home. Drive it once before making a judgment, you will understand it yourself.
