Rated 2 out of 5 by from Loses connection - nothing but trouble I bought this from Costco a few months back and I have to say that it has been the worst experience with printers that I have ever had. It constantly loses its wireless connection and constantly has to be rebooted. The user interface is clunky and not touch screen, a big miss. I do miss my old Canon printer and would have stayed with them if the ink extortion program was better. Print quality for the Epson 3850 is meh at best with washed-out colors compared to my old Canon. I am past the return period unfortunately or I would return this. I bought it because of the ink feature and the ability to reload it myself. However, with the less-than-stellar print quality and the nonstop wi-fi issues I have to give it two stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Recommended Purchased the ET 3850 3 weeks ago. Worked for the first week then would not remain connected to my wi-fi. All other equipment continued to work with my wi-fi. Epson tech support told me (guess what) it had to be my wi-fi. I bought it to scan documents but every time I try to scan a document, I have to fight with the software and settings just to get it to work. By the time I get it to work (which is not very often), I am so frustrated I want to throw it out. Cheap, loud, unreliable, waay overpriced and not worth it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3850 NOT an all-in-one. The 3850 is not a true all-in-one. I sent it back and ordered a 4850 - which has a fax.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Scanning Feature is Useless The printing is ok. I haven't had it long enough to comment on the ink refilling or anything. However, using the document feeder to scan/copy is nearly impossible. Even with one piece of paper, it gets jammed, so forget about trying to scan multiple pages. I have to open the cover to scan for pretty much any project and this gets very time consuming for bigger projects. I regret purchasing this printer and wish I would have gotten a Brother brand printer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good at photos as advertised Bought in Dec 2022. My long time Cannon finally died. I wanted something to print photos. Finally figure out how to change sized paper. Bad prints. Now I can't get it to change back to letter size to copy. Very sadly miss my very old Cannon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product Registration Trying to register this product was a nightmare. The serial number is on the bottom of the printer. I cannot lift the printer once all the ink has been inserted. SO I cannot register my new product. Why isn't it printed somewhere easy to get to?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A few issues but, so far, so good! I just put this printer into service today. The procedure for setting up and configuring the printer was a little confusing. Using the app on my iPhone allowed me to complete all the steps okay as long as I kept my iPhone close to the printer. The WiFi config failed 3 times before I was finally able to get the printer connected to my home router. However, once WiFi was connected the startup process was completed successfully while giving me the freedom to go about my other tasks until it notified my iPhone that it was complete. Color initialization took about 12-15 minutes followed by another 15 minutes printing sample pages and verifying head alignment. I added the printer to my Macbook using the system settings/printers and scanners followed by printing one of my 8-page documents. I have yet to print anything from my iPhone yet. I will have to wait and see how well it holds up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faint Printouts and poor performance! Bought a new printer because my old Brother was getting slow and tired. Thinking this mid-level (not even bottom of the line!) would be great. It's not. It can't produce any color that resembles the real color, it's black text is more muted and grey than black, and it's got a clunky interface that makes you beat on the buttons over and over because they don't respond until you do. Kept it thinking it'd get better after a few dozen prints... nope! Thought cleaning the heads would help... nope! Thought printing a test page directly from the unit would produce a sharp, crisp color print... NOPE! Save your money. Buy something that works! I'm going back to my old printer. It's still better at 6 years old than this one.

1 Actual savings and costs will vary considerably based on print tasks, print volumes and usage conditions. Savings and cost per ISO page are based on the cost of replacement ink bottles and the cost of enough standard cartridges to achieve the total page yields of the bottles using the MSRP (USD) and yields for Epson standard-capacity ink cartridges for similarly featured Epson consumer inkjet printers as of May 2021.
2 Part of the ink from the included bottles is used for initial setup; yields are lower than those of replacement ink bottles. Replacement and included ink bottle yields based on the ISO/IEC 24712 pattern with Epson’s methodology. Actual ink yields will vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or predominantly with one ink color. All ink colors are used for printing and printer maintenance, and all colors must be available for printing. For more information, visit www.epson.com/inkinfo.
3 Individual cartridges estimate based on print yields of a replacement set of black and color ink bottles as compared to Epson standard-capacity ink cartridges for similarly featured printers as of May 2021.
4 Based on average monthly document print volumes of about 200 pages.
5 See www.epson.com/voice for device compatibility. Epson Connect™ account and voice-activated account registration required.
6 Most features require an Internet connection to the printer, as well as an Internet- and/or email-enabled device. For a list of Epson Connect enabled printers and compatible devices and apps, visit www.epson.com/connect.
7 Requires Epson Smart Panel App download. Data usage fees may apply.
8 12 months of standard limited warranty or 50,000 plain paper sheets (whichever happens first). For an additional 12-month extended service plan (total of 24 months or 50,000 plain paper sheets, whichever happens first), you must register your product and use Epson genuine ink bottles. See Limited Warranty for details.
