Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an awesome printer, quality and sizes are great! We have had this printer for almost a year now with no problems at all. And still have ¼ tank of black ink left, the color tanks are more in the neighborhood of ½ to ¾ full. The quality and flexibility of page sizes is great. We have been through many reams of paper with out any problems at all. The only thing I would like to see better is the integration with apple products. The previous one printed through wireless printing now you have to use an app called IPrint, that being said, I believe you have better control of your print quality. I probably would like the interface more if I had the time to learn a little more about it. For the most part I really enjoy the quality prints and the wide format with abundant sizes of paper that can be printed. The EcoTank option is truly innovative, you don’t have to buy and throw away expensive printer cartridges, I tried refurbished cartridges in the past but the color never turns out right so I typically had to buy new ones each time. This revelation is truly one that protects the environment and still gives very high quality images.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Printer but Cannot AirPrint Bought this printer to add to my home for the large format printing capability and it does a very good and economical job. My only complaint is it does support AirPrint with my iPhone. I didn’t figure this out until after I purchased it. I have a smaller ET printer that supports AirPrint. Not sure why this one does not, unless businesses do not want this feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Printer Have been using past 3 months. Works very well in scanning, faxing (sending), printing. Have not used the Fax from computer feature. Have not had to replace ink yet but doesn't appear to be complicated.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Effective Printers....BUT..... These are very good printers, BUT they have a problem with the printheads going bad on them. I own two of them in order to assure myself that I can accomplish critical operations. And it is important to have two because the printheads on these machines keep failing. So while one printer is being replaced through Epson's excellent support system, I can accomplish print jobs on the other. It would be GREAT for Epson to find a better supplier of such. And for both Epson and myself if they would allow ME to replace the printheads. It would certain save time and money—especially in shipping costs. I'm technically proficient. I replace my own iPhone batteries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features Very happy with this printer. You can print wirelessly. You can print from your phone with the app. Awesome product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Has all the Desired features This IS printing, however, it sounds like it is going to disintegrate; completely a klink and clunk machine of questionable quality. Would have reservations about recommending this to a friend without telling them to LISTEN to ours.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color could be better If I were just printing black and white yes but, I find that a lot of color does not have the quality I expected. I have to print a 16 page Newsletter. A lot of lines and have to clean printer heads too often.
