Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal Printer! We run a small commercial and residential real estate company. We print flyers and documents pertaining to properties and deals that we put together. After some due diligence, we chose the ET-5850 printer and have been very pleased with the results we are getting. The printer is not cheap when purchasing it, but the long-term cost of operation is hands down very good for our return on investment. We were spending $1200 annually for ink on our last printer compared to $157.30 a year on the ET5850. The print quality is good. It's not picture quality, but it works just fine for advertising flyers of properties we have listed for sale. The refilling of the ink tanks is very simple. No spill, no mess refilling this bad boy! We highly recommend anyone considering a good economical printer take a look at the ET-5850. It does disappoint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ET-5850 Had it for a month, seems to be very economical with the ink, unlike our previous Brother printer that ate toner every month to the tune of over $300. Easy to connect wirelessly with all our computers. Very happy so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Phantom Paper Jam - unusable We've had this printer just over a year and it no longer works. It has been reading a paper jam and therefore will no longer print or scan any items. We've taken the thing apart, blown out the inside, even taken it to a repair shop that cannot find any issue. Epson customer service was helpful enough to tell me there is a hardware failure and we're outside the one year warranty. A waste of a colossal amount of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT This printer has been nothing short of exceptional. Replaced previous HP printer for the cost of the cartridges and I've been saving ever since. Quality prints. Fast production. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this printer/scanner I am a (formerly) loyal HP customer. I've always had HP printers/scanners. I made the decision to get this printer because the ink on my HP Color Laser was averaging $800 every 6 months, which is absolutely ridiculous. I chose this model after reading Consumer Reports and learning the EcoTanks have fabulous quality and INEXPENSIVE ink. And it's TRUE. This is not a color laser, but the quality has been GREAT and I'm so glad I made the decision. Also, ink level is so easy to see on the front panel and filling the tanks is easy and no mess.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Terrible Paper Handling I purchased 2 of these for my small business hoping to cut down the cost of toner for my existing all-in-one units. What a mistake. Pros: 1. Ink lasts a long time and it is easy to fill 2. Nice interface on the touchscreen 3. Scanning via the computer interface is smooth and simple 4. Connection to my LAN was great and able to set a static IP address 5. Two paper trays 6. Print quality is pretty decent but doesn't match laser Cons: 1. Paper handling is TERRIBLE. If printing more than a 1 page document it will more often than not (greater than 90% of the time) grab multiple sheets of paper and either print a blank sheet or have print on about an inch of text on one page and then continue on the next. This is a deal breaker for printing multiple page documents and wastes a significant amount of paper and time. 2. Duplex printing is extremely slow and not reliable because of paper handling. See Cons #1 3. Duplex scanning is tedious I do a lot of research on products before purchasing and I typically take negative reviews with a grain of salt because often time it is buyers remorse or user error. However, I wish I would have taken the bad reviews to heart because I'm stuck with 2 VERY expensive paperweights that I can pretty much only print single page documents with. If Epson could get the paper handling issues resolved this would be a pretty fantastic machine!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY - INK IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR THIS PRINTER I bought this printer last year for my office. Overall I like the printer, but for the past several months the ink has been on backorder (Epson 542 Black Ink). The ink is not available driectly through Epson nor through thrid party sellers. I called Epson customer service and they cannot give a date when the ink will be available. I am now almost completely out of the black ink. My only options are to buy another printer, or use a non-Epson complatible ink, which will void the printer warranty. Epson customer service did not come up with a solution when I called them and they were unwilling to make an exception and allow me to use a compatible ink as a temporary solution. I am stuck with no solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than a Toner fed printer We have about fifty printers at our office and all are toner type printers. This is our first ink jet and we love the savings, quality of the prints and the ease of refilling the ink. We are starting to order more of these for our staff.
Date published: 2021-11-17
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unusable Bought this as a home office printer. Both ADF and tray paper feeder constantly (I'd say 90% of the time when printing or scanning more than 3 pages) grab too many pages. This effectively makes the ADF useless for document scanning, as it regularly misses pages and jams frequently. Complete deal breaker. Scan to cloud also not working. Very disappointed, as there are many great features to this printer, like the supertank, Bluetooth connection, scan quality, etc.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't get it to work and cannot get help from your site #100017 scanner error cannot be fixed - I cannot scan - requested help but Epson avoids people with problems.

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-capacity color laser toner cartridges to achieve the total page yields of the ink bottles using the manufacturers' online prices and yields for the best-selling similarly featured color laser printers, available at retail, priced at $999 or less (USD) with speeds of 40 ppm or less per industry-available data as of July 2019. Savings of up to $600 (USD) and cost per ISO page of about $0.09 (USD) for XL-capacity color laser toner cartridges based on the same methodology.

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  Based on comparing manufacturers’ reported TEC values of the best-selling, similarly featured color laser printers priced about $999 (USD) or less with print speeds of 40 ppm or less as of July 2019.
