Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the copy, scan and print quality!! I have used over a month and am very pleased with results.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You could have done better... I bought this unit a month or so ago and I am STILL trying to get it set up. Your Asian techs were of no help and I could not understand much of what they were saying. I'm finding things are locked with a password required but no help any where to open things. There was no manual to help with the set-up, just a cd. I have never has anything FRUSTRATE ME OR MY IT PERSON so much. We'll try a little longer to get it up and running or YOU MAY HAVE IT BACK.

Date published: 2020-03-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from True Work Horse! I purchased this about six months ago and have printed thousands of full color, letter size, single and double sided documents; several dozen Tabloid and Super B size posters; many feet of banners; and hundreds of envelopes sized for letters, large greeting cards, invitation size cards. The savings in ink costs is outrageous compared to ink and toner cartridges! I haven't used it to fax, but the copy and scan features are fine. This printer is performing for production purposes better than I had hoped for. My only problem is getting the output color to be more consistent with my design work, especially shades of red. I've spent hours testing the various settings for print production and haven't been completely satisfied yet. While not a show stopper for the work I'm doing, it's very annoying. Bottom line, I LOVE THIS PRINTER in spite of it's big, heavy footprint. Ink is so easy to refill and it's important to run maintenance tasks if printing hundreds of pieces in a single print job. My documents are primarily promotional flyers and customized cards with hi-res graphics and photos. Still can't believe what I can print for a minimal investment in the ink! My other laser jet and ink jet printers are in hibernation:-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great printer for a home office Bought this from Staples only to find out 1, it was 15 months old new stock 2 and over priced by 40%
Date published: 2020-03-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it I bought this in January and this is my 3rd epson printer I really like epson I gave my hubby my ET4550 and I still like that one but I bought this one be cause it prints a bigger format for larger pictures. but I wish it would scan negatives like the epson 1800
Date published: 2020-03-28
Rated 2 out of 5 by from When it works it is okay. Sometimes the scanner works and sometimes I have to shut off the printer and turn it back on multiple times to get it to work. Have had issues with the paper feed. To many steps to just get a simple copy made, more time consuming.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only troubles I bought this printer 3 years ago with great expectations. Within 2 weeks it was found defective, I was asked to returneto factory and got back a refurbished printer which did function properly at times but always had problems up to the point that I can't now print pictures properly (because of lines that would not disapear even when I folloe procedure to test and clean printer).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best printer for my small business It was a replacement for my Epson wich served me well for 7 year. I had no doubts l was getting the high quality product. It didn't disappoint. I print and sell greeting cards and label stickers on Etsy. This printer is perfect for my small business. Ecotank is outstanding feature. Very happy and highly recommend to all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features for printer ET-16500 We just got our printer today and are loving it...it takes a time to get set up on laptops and mobile devices but it seems to be amazing and unreal the many options for printing. I'll add more once we've had our ET-16500 for awhile. Thanks Epson I do believe printing will be at a whole new happy level!
