Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wow, just wow! I own a smaller version and wanted to upgrade to print bigger sheets. I couldn't be happier! Fantastic prints and tons of ink! I just wish the price was a touch lower, I'm sure it will come down eventually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a Great printer We just purchased this printer to print mockups and work orders, Installed with little effort, connected to 10 MacIntoshes. Beautiful prints we are in business!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality Printer I needed a large format printer and this fills the bill. PROs: I have printed several hundred sheets and the tanks are still full. It never misses a sheet or double feeds, which is a big plus and the cassettes hold lots of paper. CON: Just one, I load a sheet in the rear feeder and if I forget to tell the printer that it's there, it ejects it and then prints from the cassette. It should automatically print on that sheet first without being told.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all around Printer This printer is easy to set up and performs as expected. It's fast for an inkjet and the quality is very good. It seems pretty good on ink use. Will have to use it until I add additional ink to see how efficient it performs. The only drawback is the printer price. However, the ink is very reasonable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used for a small mom and pop print shop This is my second eco tank printer I have bought the first is a et-4550 wanted to try the concept first, Bulk ink is great but speed is a little desired for it would be five stars with a page wide print head array but that is its only short coming I go though about 2-8 bottle of ink per color each month and before I had to get off brand ink to fill refillable cartridges. Now All they have to do is make a user replaceable inkhead page width and I would give them 5 stars but because of the 2 down falls I can only give 4 I will be buying again if it last as long as I think

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works & Great Savings but sounds like a dying squirrel Never had a louder printer. The thing has a chalkboard screech every time it prints. quite annoying but it does save us money with the ink tanks. Noise makes it sound cheap and worries me about its longevity. Id say try a different model or buys headphone too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breath Of Fresh Air! I bought this printer a month ago and consolidated my office equipment... The ink solution creates freedom to use the printer whenever you want without the nagging "limited laser cartridge" blues lurking in the background. And the larger size of the printer as a photocopier/scanner gives it the air of a true office machine and not that of a toy. And engineering documents are so easy to do now given the tabloid tray. Clearly the product was well engineered from the start, including the freedom of knowing the artificial ink limits are forever in the past now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whopper of an Inkjet Sets New Standards for Awesome Printers This is an awesome printer. It is a mammoth workhorse to say the least. But, I am so glad I have this for all of my printing, copying, scanning, and faxing needs. One of the best features is the ink tanks. No messy cartridges to buy or refill, just a simple group of tanks on the side with easy open lids. Ink refill bottles are surprisingly economically priced. Print quality is, well, remarkable, really. Prints are crisp and sharp, even when printing draft quality. I can't get over how readily I can print on 11x17 inch papers, including heavy weights like card stock. My printouts look like they've come from a printing press. Freaking awesome! The auto document feeder is such a time saver, too. It makes short work of thick stacks of paper documents, and I can walk off only to return to a finished job. Few printers provide this kind of satisfaction, and in my nearly 30 years working with computers and printers, not one inkjet has ever gotten close to this kind of genius. Epson has given the competition a run for its money. Frankly, this is the very best printer I have owned in 30 years. And, that includes color laser printers. I still marvel that it is an inkjet. Wow! This machine obviously raises the bar, folks. It will be a challenge to top this beast!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed We were excited to purchase this printer for the 11X17 feature. Unfortunately the printer squeaks and prints at slow rate. Forget about quality for photos or presentation documents.
