Ah, God, no! Just installed Mac OS Sierra, only to find that my beloved Epson Stylus Color 680 is not compatible. And me sat here with a little stack of unopened colour and black and white cartridges. What do I do now - ditch the printer and cartridges? Is there any possibility that Epson might upgrade this printer? If not, who the hell do I sue for compensation?

Downloaded Epson Printer Driver 3.2 fine, alter installed, my RMBP 15 inches running El Capitan 10.11.4 beta 3 do not boot up anymore. I hang at Boot screen with White Apple logo, the progress bar move slowly to the end and hang there. Cannot boot in dpsafe boot as well. During installation, there are tow warning that the system extensions do not work. But it install fine. The problem happened to me since Epson Printer Driver 3.1 many months ago, cannot reboot after install. Be careful if you use El Capitan. Do not install this because it will f**k up your system. Apple should not release this crappy printer drivers update

I, too, couldn't print from 2 iMacs using Mavericks and one MacBook Pro using Snow Leopard after applying the Epson printer driver update 2.18. Our Epson WF-7510 printer was connected wirelessly to our router, but our computers couldn't connect to the printer. Message was "Printer not connected" or "No communication with printer". After a few hours of searching, I found a video at Epson Support that suggested to unplug the power cord to our router for 30 seconds. Then plug it in, wait 30 seconds, and then try to print. After following that procedure, I went into Printer & Scanner Preferences, and deleted the chosen Epson printer driver, After deleting the driver, I then added the Epson driver for our printer. Then I tried to print, and test sheets printed from both iMacs. As for the MacBook Pro, I had to restart, after which I could print. So, in summary, try unplugging then plugging in your router (if printing wirelessly). Hopefully, this will help. Ivor

I had issue with the last automatic update on 10.8 ; Cannot print anything. I solve it by simply putting a name to my computer under Sharing options in System Preferences (became mysteriously blank after updating). Hope this tip could help :)

This seems to have messed up our printer (SP1290). The nozzle check pattern is OK, but print colours with all documents and images look like at least one colour is missing.

Downloaded and installed via App store without issues. Always download from the App store because you will get only that portion of the update that applies to your Epson printer. In this case it was only about 32MB, not the 1.2GB update (which contains all the drivers for every Epson printer still supported) and is a waste of space.

Only download drivers from the Epson site. I run Snow Leopard 10.6.8. Apple releases new drivers that are for the latest OS. i.e. Mountain Lion. The frustrating part is trying to find out if you need them. It is strange that between Epson and Apple, they cannot follow Adobe's example ...who's site reads your OS, then determines which version of their program you have "Flash or Reader", and decides if you need to update. The couple of times I've tried Apple's printer drivers for Epson the result was disastrous printing problems. I wrote Epson and they said ONLY use drivers from their site, but they wouldn't tell me if I needed to update. I couldn't rate features below with 1 star ...this page wouldn't allow it. But that's my rating. Often Apple is behind in updates for 3rd party software and for anything not apple, the Apple automatic update can actually put an obsolete version on your machine. For anything Apple ...or java ...Software update is a great and easy to use feature.

Perhaps it's still a bit early, but I am surprised that my iMac/System Preferences or App Store does not yet see that this update is available for DL (and I do have an applicable printer).

In many ways it's rather unhelpful for MacUpdate and other sites to make these printer driver files available ... I mean the choic eis downloading a file gigabyte sin size for your printer/scanner driver that may only be 40 megabytes of the total, or using Software Update to update the 40 megabyte driver which makes a hell of a lot more sense. Suggestion to site administrators, let people know that their drivers can be updated a hell of a lot more easily using Software Update whenever Apple releases these puppies in future ... it might do away with a lot of the kvetching.

Downloaded this beast from MU and the installer package showed 1.1GB and wanted to use 1.44GB of space on my HD. Thought NO .. and now I can't erase the package. First thought I'd download the whole lot and choose the Driver for my Printer and erase the rest. What if I can't? Now this thing is taking up over a GB of space and won't go.

Amazes me how I could not find this on the Apple site, or Epson when I clicked on the relevant download page. It took me a day to test restart reinstall etc. until I accidently stumbled onto here, and this driver miraculously worked. What I don't understand since the drivers are updated, why it isn't updated automatically on the Software Update on the Mac?

Update seems okay. Software update is always enormously smaller in size than if you were to download the full package (20+MB versus 984MB). Sorry to hear this didn't work for the last poster, but it appears to be fine for me.

My experience, at least with pro level Epson’s (3880 on up), the WORST thing you can do is let Apple update the drivers. Kiss of death. You’ll end up having to reset the printing system and reinstall the drivers from Epson. Especially painful for those of us with multiple Epson’s (I have a 3880, 4800 and 4900). You actually have to install the drivers in order. Never let Apple futz with the printer drivers, do this yourself and you’ll be in much better shape.

As Jcraig pointed out... make certain you have your Epson printer turned on and use Software Update. The download for me was only 1.1 MB by doing this versus 962 MB had I simply downloaded directly from Macupdate! Incredible!

I first ran SU without anything connected to my MBP and nothing showed up. I then connected the Epson AIO and re-ran SU, resulting in a 31.5MB d/l. While these updates are definitely device-specific, they may also depend on that device being connected (either by cable or via network) to your machine.

I DL'd the Software Updater version as it was only 20MB vs the monster stand-alone version available here at MU. As best I can tell there is no difference in performance. For me, this updater installed as designed, but what, if any, improvements are result, that too I dunno. OTOH, no problems have been discovered. It sure would be nice if Apple mandated that they post no required updaters via their Software Update unless the developer (including Apple) listed what changes have been made.

I can't help but notice these drivers aren't being released bu Epson, but by Apple. I've been using an Epson Stylus PHOTO R380 with little difficulty (except problems with the 7.5.2 firmware update to my Airport Extreme - network printing is hit-or-miss now). Why exactly do I need to download an 837MB file to replace the (working) manufacturer's driver (which hasn't been updated by Epson since 2007) with something from Apple? There is no reference on the Apple site to explain why this update is necessary. Anybody have any insights?

When downloading this updater, the size is 737MB! Apparently, the DL is for every Epson ever made. But when I used System Preferences/Software Update, the update for my Stylus Photo R340 was only 19.9MB. Perhaps when the stand alone package is unpacked, only the needed code is installed. I dunno. I doubt Epson will comment, but maybe someone who really knows whereof he/she speaks will chime in re this size disparity. A for me, this updater is uneventful. No better, no worse. At least so far. But then, I was not having problems to begin with and I have an old printer.

Installed via Software update. No major issues, though printing borderless 8x10 is still problematic, often resulting in misaligned images regardless of "fit to page" or "center image" settings. Image quality to 5x7 is flawless though. Epson Artisan 810.

Added support for the Epson R200 this release, and it works perfectly. I've got my R200 connected to an Airport Extreme, which the Gutenprint drivers don't work as well with. The official ones work with no problems at all. The remaining ink and head cleaning features work over wireless too!

I highly recommend Gutenprint drivers (currently at version 5.2.4) over the Epson drivers. http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/MacOSX.php This download will include "Gutenprint Utility for EPSON Inkjet Printers." So you can clean your nozzles, and check if all colors are printing properly. My experience (and many others) is that Gutenprint's open source drivers offer more features and are more reliable. HTH

EVERY time I install new drivers I MUST RESET printing system, because of "not properly installed" Epson printer! I have more than one printer and I'm sick of this! I must agree with other commentators saying "don't fix if it's not broken". So, if your Epson is working properly, spare some time and DON'T download these drivers!

It took me nearly a week to get my Epson 1280 working correctly after the last Epson driver update, so, in this case, I'm a firm believer in the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" school of thought. If your Epson is printing fine, if you can check the ink levels with Epson Printer Utility and if your printer color profiles are in order, I would wait a while before installing this update. Or just skip it altogether. It's not that I don't trust Apple, i don't just Epson. Epson printers, although they probably deliver the best print quality available in a consumer-grade home printer, are very touchy. On top of that, Epson's Mac support is notoriously awful. So, proceed with extreme caution.

546 MB for a printer update, really? I only want, if I need anything at all, is the driver for my printer, not for every printer Epson ever made. Does this updater scan/search for my computer and then only install what I need, or does it install "everything"?

Before trying this install on my MacBook Pro (late '07 model, OS 10.6.1), I ran Software Update. SU indeed wanted to update the drivers for my Epson RX680 (and CX7800, which is a network printer on AirPort). Afterward, both printers perform just fine, and now the Epson Printer Utility Lite shows the ink levels for the AirPort printer... something I have never been able to do since putting that printer on a network. So, I'm a happy camper.

I disagree, BillJacobs. The older comments are important to show the historical praise and complaints of the apps, as well as the developer's attitude toward responding to any bugs. People should have this info to help decide if they want to buy an app. If someone is too dumb to look at the date and filter comments accordingly, that's their problem.

I have a USB powered EPSON 1280 printer running on OS X 10.2.8. I am looking to print from Photoshop 7 and Indesign CS and was wondering where and which PostScript driver do I need for this? Also, I have run all the cleanning tests provided with my printer but there seem to be small streaks showing up arbitrarily in different places on my print. Having a cat, I have found some hair stuck in the printer and cleaned it the best I could. Any other way to clean the head? Thanks!

Epson Printer Drivers for OSX 1.0 didn't work well for me. I upgraded to Jaguar (10.2), found and installed the open source software "Gimp-Print" and my Epson Stylus Photo EX now works perfectly. Gimp Print can be found at: http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/. Many Epson drivers are included (100+ or so I believe). Good luck.
