Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-built speedy monochrome printer I already have a nice Epson EcoTank ET-7700 for most of my color printing, but I also print a lot of large documents in monochrome and I really miss having a sheet fed scanner. I was given the opportunity to check out the new Epson monochrome ET-M3170 printer, and I’m super happy to report back that it’s excellent! I received the printer in the normal retail box. The printer was packed very well and everything arrived intact. Inside I found the printer, some documentation and a driver cd. Please be careful when removing the printer from the box to NOT lift it by the scanner part on top (as indicated in the docs). You need to reach down and grab the printer base to avoid possibly damaging it. There isn’t a USB cord included, but most people have spares, and I connected mine via ethernet, regardless. Physically preparing the printer is easy if you follow the quick setup sheet. I had all the tape removed and it filled up with ink in no time. The ink fill procedure is super easy and I didn’t get a drop on my hands or anywhere else ink shouldn’t be. Hooking up the printer to my network was totally painless and I was ready to install the printer on my computer in less than 20 minutes. The paper tray is a little different but straightforward enough. You just pull down the door on the bottom front and the whole thing slides out. There’s the manual feel slot in the back, too, for single sheets, envelopes, etc. Build quality seems very good. It’s not super sturdy like the big department sized printers I’m used to at work, but perfectly acceptable for home/small office/workgroup work. Installing the drivers went fine without issues, and I was up and printing. I printed a number of medium to large documents, both simplex and duplex without issues. The printer is quick and time to first page is awesome! Obviously duplexing takes longer given the ink dry pause, but I was happy. Print quality is excellent. Scanning was painless, too. I used the scan ‘button’ on the touch panel to scan to my computer. Scan quality was fine and it popped up as a pdf right in my pictures folder. I’m really pleased with the product. The only downside that I’ve come across is that the ADF for the scanner doesn’t auto-duplex. Not really a big deal for what I’m using it for. This is a review for the Epson EcoTank M-3170 Monochrome All-in-One Supertank Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple Quick Monochrome Printer I work from a home office a lot and always have an issue printing on my expensive ink printers. The ET-M3170 allows me to print and not feel guilty. The set up was easy and the fact that there are no ink cartridges is so nice. Out of the box the easy to follow instructions allowed me to get this set up and connected to my computer in a breeze, and the fax setup was included! After aligning the printer it has printed my jobs so quickly. One thing that is frustrating with the printer is the wireless connection sometimes has an issue finding the printer. Im not sure if this is because of my Network or at home but it was time consuming to try to correct the issue when I wanted to print after the initial set up. Im not 100% sure if this is my network or the computer and its a simple fix with a hard wire so not a deal breaker. The printer overall is the best printer addition I've had to improve my home office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! My husband is a owner operator of his own trucking business. I'm all the ti.e printing things off for the business.. is, labels, paperwork that the broker sends, bills, etc. The printer I was using would always run out of the ink cartridge, stall, and break down due to the bulk I was printing on a weekly basis.( 500 + pages a week). Since I've used this printer, it's been so much easier. He can send things right to the printer and it prints off.. pages are more clear, easier to read, no mess, and less pages as it does front and back. Easier to scan and everything else. Makes running the business so much smoother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds All Expectations! I use the Epson EcoTank Monochrome for my business and print hundreds of sheets per week. This printer exceeds all of my expectations! From unboxing to completion, the set-up is quick and easy. I was able to connect the printer instantly through my wireless router and start using the printer in minutes. What I love best is the cartridge-free printing. I was spending hundreds of dollars per year on replacement ink. Whereas, the ink tank on this printer is oversized and easy to fill. It's conveniently located on the front of the printer and fills quickly without a mess. And one tank has the capability to print 6000 pages- what a cost savings! Print quality is impressive too. Pages print quickly- around 20 pages per minute, and text is crisp and sharp. I was able to adjust the printer easily to find the perfect settings. And I don't feel like I'm always having to add paper, as the tray holds up to 250 sheets. While I use it mainly for printing, I also appreciate the ability to copy, scan and fax. This printer truly is a workhorse- Epson nailed it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great printer, excellent value. Unbox, setup and appearance: The printer is packed well enough in the box and is simple to pull out. It is lightweight and so that helps getting it out of the box. I didn't have a game of hide-and-seek with the accessories since the software, ink and power cable were very accessible. The blue tape they put over everything to keep parts from moving during shipping seemed a little excessive as there was tape on parts of the auto document feeder which didn't hold anything down or in place. Setup was simple - plug in, fill with ink, add paper and turn on. It basically stepped you through everything on the screen until a certain point. When it wanted to charge the ink it directed you to the manual, which told you to push one button for a few seconds and it will do it - not sure why that wasn't on the screen.. But that's okay. This printer looks like it belongs in an office, and I think that is by design, being a monochrome printer. Functionality and Overall: I compared printing from it to a laser printer and the quality matches very well. It prints very well. Copies from the printer look very well. It prints really quickly, but also has a quiet print mode, which is pretty nice, and very quiet. I did have the printer off for a little bit and it lost the wifi settings - hopefully the firmware update I applied will resolve that being forgotten, otherwise that would be annoying. It comes with enough ink for 6000 pages it claims, which is really nice. I really like that it has auto-duplex. You don't need to worry about flipping sheets over manually or anything. That is very nice to have. This is a review for the Epson EcoTank M-3170 Monochrome All-in-One Supertank Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice printer I was so excited to learn that I would a beta tester for the Epson EcoTank printer. I have owned an Epson Work Force printer for some time and was eager to experience their latest product offering. I received the EcoTank model ET-M3710 and it looks awesome! It has every feature you could want in a mono color printer whether it’s for personal use or in a small work group environment. The 35 sheet Automatic Document Feeder lets you scan or make copies of multiple page documents with ease. It even has fully automatic two-sided copy capability. No more reloading of pages to print on the back sides. The quick start guide was easy to follow, and the color touch screen display was crisp and well laid out. During the Wifi setup there was an option to automatically detect and configure my Wifi connection. This process appeared to work well until the setup software on my laptop froze. I had to reboot the computer to get the software to close. Afterwards I setup the Wifi connection manually using the color display and the laptop quickly connected wireless to the printer. I didn’t get to make enough copies to get a feel for how long the ink will last. But The ink loading process is very easy. The bottle is keyed to fit the ink tank effortlessly and leaves little opportunity to make a mess. The tank is clearly visible on the front side of the printer so you never have to wonder about how much ink remains. The printer walks you through the automatic process of charging the ink head and then offers you the opportunity to perform so alignment tests. Those tests are quick and easy. Total setup time, even with the brief interruption when the software froze, was well under 25 minutes. I printed a number of documents in most common formats and the printer performed well. The copy quality was on par with what you would expect from Epson. I placed a variety of document types on the glass to copy and copy and scan easily manipulated the quantities, density, etc. Copying through the ADF worked well but I noticed that there was a vertical line present on each page that was not present when the same copy was made from the glass. The supplier claimed to respond to inquiries within 24 hours but when I reported the copy quality issue they did not reply. This is a review for the Epson EcoTank M-3170 Monochrome All-in-One Supertank Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Bulk Printing Machine!! I print a lot of documents for my everyday, all of them are black and white. I was tired of buying and replacing expensive cartridges for printers. With this printer i just fill the large ink tanks and start printing large number of documents. I also get to see the level of ink, so I know when to refill. For people who bulk print, amount of documents in prints in a single ink bottle will be a huge cost saving. Features that i love about this are, amount of documents it prints per ink tanks makes printing costs extremely low. All options which are required print, scan, copy and fax. It supports connection to pc via ethernet, which is what i use, but i can also print wirelessly from smartphone. Also option to connect usb pen drive to print documents. You can see ink level which is my favorite bonus feature.This is a review for the Epson EcoTank M-3170 Monochrome All-in-One Supertank Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and economical! I have a small private practice business and I'm a one man show, so I do a lot of printing. I had a printer I use daily and often both at my home office and my actual office. I need at least one of the machines to be versatile and an affordable workhorse but I don't need the frills and costs of color. I have had my business for about 4 years and during that time I have bought about 10 printers. This machine finally fits the bill. The text is black and super sharp. I find the machine easy to use, reliable and without problems or glitches so far. The scanner works great, and I love how I can finally not have to worry about replacing ink cartridges all the time. This seems like it's a home run! This is a review for the Epson EcoTank M-3170 Monochrome All-in-One Supertank Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to connect wirelessly & prints fantastic This EcoTank ET-M3170 Wireless Monochrome All In One super tank printer has many nice features its size is compact and not at all bulky. This printer comes with everything needed to get started. This product is easy to setup and did not take long to connect to my internet and I was able to print from my desktop. I was having issues at first with the paper jamming and it took me a while to realize it was very jammed with all printings getting jammed, the back easily removed and I was able to clean out the jammed area and after I did that no more issues with the printer getting jammed. The printing comes out very nice and ink is not only economic but is very easy to apply to tank and has a view able ink indicator to let you know when you are running low on ink. I have been able to print hundreds of pages for my small business with no issues, I love the touchscreen it is very modern and is very accurate when pressed. Everything is straightforward and easy to use, It copies documents fast and faxing is a great feature as well. Then scanning is very fast as well, this product seems to be very durable and is very attractive for any office setting. I really love the two staged super-tank. This product is very compact, bottom pulls out fully to put paper and hides paper as we know at times papers can look very messy, this printer looks very professional. The scanner easily lifts up and is very easy to use. For my business only black ink is needed so this is perfect for me because this product does not have a slot for colored ink, though I wish it had the option to do so but not a big deal. This product is not to heavy or bulky and can be easily be moved from room to room. This product comes with the whole setup the disc made the wireless setup easy and gave me step by step assistance, the ink is bottled ink that had to be poured in the printer it connected to printer instantly so no mess ink and did not spill anywhere.The paper feed is very easy to use and accepts a good amount of paper. I would greatly recommend this product to others due to it's quality of printing, features/ eco ink and multiple printing options.“This is a review for the Epson EcoTank M-3170 Monochrome All-in-One Supertank Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.”
