Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple printer without compromising the results The Epson EcoTank ET-M1170 Monochrome Supertank printer has impressed me with it’s simple but powerful features. I was specifically looking for a black and white printer. I didn’t want or need a color printer with all the bells and whistles and I didn’t want to have to spend a lot of money constantly replacing ink. I just needed to print documents or tickets for events from my computer and my phone. I’ve had it less than a week and I’ve been impressed with the many features this printer has. I consider myself technology savvy and setting up the M1170 was simple. I was able to set it up to my computer, phones, tablet, print remotely and use Siri / Alexa to print without any issues. I got the printer out of the box and examined it to get more familiar with where things were and what features it has. The paper tray is easy to open, it adjusts for different sizes and also has a custom feeding tray in the top for envelopes or custom papers. The back panel comes off, the front panel opens and the top panel opens to troubleshoot paper jams. The printer is fairly small in size for a printer; a little over a foot on each side and only 6” tall. It’s has a simple appearance with clean lines and minimal buttons. The printer had a power cord, instructions (paper and on disc) and a bottle of ink. I followed the instructions and filled the printer reservoir with ink. I turn it on, poured in the ink and let the ink load, this takes about 10 minutes. While the ink loaded I installed the drivers. I didn’t have a disc so I had to go to the website provided in the instructions to download the drivers. Once you install the drivers, the software walks you through everything to get you started. By the time the ink was ready, the drivers were installed on my computer and the software prompted to print a test page. The test page printed and the final setup walked you through the steps for remote printing (to print from work to your home printer). Next set up: my phone. I have an iphone and downloaded the Epson iPrint app. The app found my printer, I selected it and it was done. The features on the app allow you to control print settings, show ink status, maintenance cartridge level, clean the printer heads, and check the nozzle. Again, I’m super impressed with the ease of setting up this printer and enjoy the features the app has to offer. The print quality and speed of the Epson ET-M1170 was surprising. For a printer that has the selling point of saving ink, is fast, and communicates wirelessly; I wasn’t sure what to expect. I printed a couple of things with different settings to test the printer. Documents printed sharp and quick… like really quick (think high speed laser jet printer). The first print was finished faster than most computers take to send the data over to the printer. The quality was great and the text was crisp and easy to read, even in draft mode. Next I printed a photo from my phone. I know this is not a photo printer and it was not my intended purpose, but I did happen to have a black and white photo on my phone and wanted to test the app. I used Epson iPrint, selected photo and selected a letter size print in draft, standard and best mode. The prints come out much slower than the text prints, but they are still much faster than other printers. The draft was very light and unusable for a photo, the standard setting left horizontal lines like where the wheels were on the printer and the best print looked AMAZING and did not have any lines. If you had photo paper, I bet you could print a really nice black and white photo with this printer. When I saw the lines on the standard print, I thought maybe the print heads needed cleaning, so I quickly cleaned those using the app and printed it again on the standard setting, the lines were still there. This is the only time I saw the lines, when I used a photo and used the standard print setting. Something to consider is this printer uses ink, not powder. If you are using a lot of black and on plain paper, the paper will be saturated, feel wet and have some waves in it where there is a lot of black. I did not experience any smudging and the paper lays flat once the ink dries. Next I tested print speed. As mentioned earlier, the first print came out very quickly and the subsequent pages were much faster (specs say 20 pages per minute). This printer also has the ability to print 2 sided, and even though it has to flip the page, it is also incredibly fast. I wanted a simple black and white printer. The Epson EcoTank ET-M1170 Monochrome Supertank printer gave me more than I needed without complicating the process or compromising the result. I didn’t need all the features that the phone app had but I will admit that I LOVE them. I cant speak to how long the ink lasts yet, but I will definitely follow up this review when I run out. I’ve had great experiences with Epson printers in the past and this black and white printer is no exception. If you need a simple printer that will surprise you with how simple it is and how well it functions across multiple devices, this is the printer for you. This is a review for the Epson EcoTank M-1170 Wireless Monochrome Supertank Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Business Printer Epson ET-M1170 Monochrome Wireless Printer is a great business printer. It's a very sleek printer and space saving unit. It was the perfect size to fit on my shelf above my computer desk. The setup was pretty easy, from filling the catridge free unit up with ink, installing the drivers, and getting it connected to the network. I had everything going in about 20 minutes. Printing was very fast and the prints came out laser quality. This could defintley replace a laser printer. You can print from various mobile devices with easy and even connect it for voice activation. Doing research on the cost of ink for this printer it is very reasonable. I think Epson hit it out of the park with this one. I highly recommend this printer for anyone in a small office who primarly prints in black ink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product!! I received this a week ago and I’m so happy with that! Its very easy to set up and use. Fits nicely on a desk or table without taking up a lot of space. Can be used wired or wirelessly. It’s super fast and print perfectly. If you print a lot of black-and-white pages, this is the perfect printer, but you'll also save a lot of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal Printer When this printer first arrived and I opened the box it came in, I noticed how well it was packaged. Each component that belongs to this printer was neatly packaged in the box. It was neatly packaged to prevent any damage to the printer. As a customer, I appreciate this. This is important so that the printer isn't damaged when it is delivered. The instructions that were provided with the printer were very easy to follow and installing the printer was also an easy task. The instructions were clear and made the process enjoyable. I was able to put everything together in less than five minutes. Inserting the ink bottle wasn't difficult. I also appreciate that the instructions came in various languages. This is very helpful. The printer itself has a modern look to it. It adds a fashionable touch to your desk. The sleek design and matte black color makes this printer look very modern. This printer has a feature that allows it to connect to the WI-FI. I am happy to know that I am able to print up to 6,000 pages. Once I printed the very first page, I knew how great this printer was going to be. The letters and font are very clear when printing. The pages aren't streaky or hard to see. I can easily tell by the lines on the ink dispenser when the ink is running low. I also like that there is a large paper capacity. Printing is very time saving and I can print straight from my phone. It is very easy to print from my smartphone. All I needed was to download an app and choose the printer I was going to connect and that was all! This was an easy task thanks to the ability to connect the printer to the WI-FI at my home. Printing was a breeze printing from my smartphone. It was as easy as printing from my computer. I also used the voice activated feature and this also worked well. All in all, I would highly recommend this printer. I have owned other printers before, but nothing beats this one. It was really easy to install and it didn't take but 10 minutes for the ink to charge. I am very happy with this printer. I'm also very pleased with the two year limited warranty, the reduction of printing cost, and the effectiveness of this printer. It surpassed my expectations and if I had to choose between this one and another printer I would definitely choose this EPSON printer. If you are a customer looking for a reliable printer that saves you time and money then I most definitely recommend it. “This is a review for the Epson EcoTank M-1170 Wireless Monochrome Supertank Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent printer I installed his printer within the last few weeks and it does an amazing job! The quality is top notch. The speed is excellent. More importantly the ink will last me so long! If you’re like me and most of your print jobs are black ink then this is the printer you are going to want. You will not be sorry with this purchase. Set up is simple and takes just a few minutes. “This is a review for the Epson EcoTank M-1170 Wireless Monochrome Supertank Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Home or Small Office Printer The Epson ET-M1170 monochrome inkjet printer is a excellent personal desktop printer or workgroup printer for a small business. It is a small compact printer with an attractive and modern white and black color scheme. It has simple controls and indicators that are easy to understand and access. I especially like the 250 sheet bottom paper drawer and top feed of the printed sheets. This is my preferred form of printer paper handling as it makes the printer more compact when in use and from my experience is more reliable long term. There is also a rear top feed paper slot for special types or sizes of media. The printer is able to print on both sides of the paper automatically. Print speed is very fast and print quality (both text and photo) is excellent. I can see where this printer could easily replace a monochrome laser printer in many offices and homes with equal speed and quality of printing at a much lower cost per page in operating costs. This leads me to the best part of this printers design which is the Epson Eco Tank. This system means you never have to replace the print heads and only have to refill the printers ink tank every 6,000 pages. Refill ink bottles are cheap (much less than laser toner or other printers ink cartridges) and it is a very clean, simple, and foolproof process to refill the ink tanks. The printer has built in wireless wi-fi and ethernet connectivity and you can also print directly from Apple or Android smart phones. Epson has designed a excellent printer with the ET-M1170 printer. It is simple to install and use and is a workhorse that is always ready. It would easily fit into any home or small office that needs a durable laser speed printer with very low cost per page operating costs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EcoTank M1170 Monochrome is perfect for business printing! Epson ET-M1170 Monochrome Wireless Printer is perfect for the business printing with this compact, space saving, double sided printer. From opening the box to setup, this printer is so manageable to use, even for the not so tech savvy person. Whether you are using it wirelessly or using voice-activation, Epson has hit a home run with this business printer. The instructions are easy to read and follow the step by step with pictures, so anyone can follow along and the included CD to install on your computer or you can download everything from Epson.com. Adding the ink to this Cartridge Free printer was super easy, take the lid off and line it up with the ink tank and let it fill itself. This printer will be up and running within a half hour. Following the setup, the printer will even print a test page to make sure it is connected properly and with Voice-Activated, you can print from your iPad, iPhone, Android tablets and phones speaker with Alexa and it printed seamlessly after I activated Epson Connect. Printing was a breeze and the pages come out with crisp, black color and even prints Double-sided which saves paper. The best bonus to this printer is that it is cartridge free and ink can be refilled with the replacement bottles that are low cost and works just as good as a high end printer. Simply charge/warmup the ink in minutes and this printer shoots out pages fast and clear and amazing text. Replacement ink bottle included will print up to 6,000 pages and comes with a 2 year warranty. I would highly recommend this printer for any business person that prints a lot and wants to save with the EcoTank and cartridge free printing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent no-frills business printer This printer is an excellent addition to my office. I often print hundreds of pages at a time for my volunteer position as well as for my business that I operate from my home office. This printer is made for someone like me who needs to print a lot of forms very quickly. Pros: - Small form factor - Easy to set up and operate - Directions easy to understand and common issues are explained within them - Set up on multiple devices took mere minutes - Works via app on cellphone - Allows printing from email - Connect group of features (like voice control) are awesome - Super fast printing Cons: - Adding via WPS was problematic but I am not sure if that was an issue with the router Overall I am extremely happy with how easy this printer was to set up. I was printing within minutes of starting setup. The wizard in the software walked me through each step without issues. It needed a nozzle cleaning after setup, but all pages after the test page came out flawless. Setting up the app was easy too, and printing from it is not hard. It even converts documents to PDF!! It prints faster than my previous laser printer too. It felt like each page was pushed out in like 2-3 seconds. I cannot attest for how long the ink lasts, as I have not used it all yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wireless Wonder!!! Well, I never though this small unit would pack such a big punch. I could load a ton of paper I have printed about 1000 pages so far for my work and the tank seems to not even have moved. The printing is fast and the text is shark page after page. The setup was easy ans my 12 yo son did it on his own for me. I love the wireless feature and the Alexa and Google voice print option is very cool. I was able to print invoices, schedules, menus and flyers directly from my phone. The design is compact and takes up less room on my home office desk that I thought. I have not yet replaced the ink but the replacement ink is not expensive.. The clear ink indicator allows me to see when the ink is low. I had no miss-feeds or jams so far. This printer is super fast and does not seem to loose it speed or clarity when printing in large quantities. I would recommend this printer for any home office that need fast, clear prints in, black and whit or grey scale. It would be nice if it was a scanner feeder for checks and other paperwork. The auto two sided printing is another great feature and helped with saving a tree or two when I had to print reports for a group of 50.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the color white! It was really easy to set up with the cd on the computer and didnt take long. I printed a picture and it worked well. I captured a picture from the epson app and it printed right away. The double printing option works fairly well it just has to be the same color so it wont transfer on the other side. The only option that i couldnt figure out was the voice activated i wasnt able to use it since it didnt appear on the app. I really love the white color it looks really nice and simple. Cant wait to keep printing more thank you. This is a review for the Epson EcoTank M-1170 Wireless Monochrome Supertank Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.”
