Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Workhorse and economical to use" I bought this printer about a year and one-half ago. Wow, what a work horse and very economical. Also, everyone enjoys the "use of the Wi-Fi enabled features" ... so we can send print requests over wifi wherever we are ... like riding in the car, from work, school and the grocery store. Also, because it prints in black and colors ... it is so economical ... we use the color feature regularly. Thank you Epson for developing this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Will not feed #10 Envelopes I bought this two weeks ago. If you print a lot, it's great being able to refill the ink wells! The down side is I cant get it to feed anything but normal paper. It will not feed a #10 envelope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up This was the easiest setup I have encountered with a printer... Even setting up the Wi-Fi was a breeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Living up to its billing. The set-up was easier than a few online videos had led me to believe. All that's needed is to follow the directions precisely and to take care, don't rush. After that it's lived up to its billing: very good print quality, especially on matte when I want a heavier stock. The ability to see how much ink is left (all of it, after a month of use!) is a great notion. Extra cost to purchase will pay for itself with the much cheaper ink bottles. It's good to have colour again! I'd got rid of my colour laser years ago due to the cost of cartridges: this system makes so much sense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Set Up and Operate I wish the paper tray held more paper, but the print quality is awesome and you can't beat not having to buy ink cartridges any more. I can dig this printer, even with the small-ish paper tray. I have been wanting one for a while and glad I waited because the office supply store near me had it for $100 off the normal price. Kyewl!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very, no hassle setup! I've always purchased an Epson over the past four decades. However, I purchased another competitor's product, I had to return the product due to technical errors. So I tried again and another technical error occurred. During an attempt to install the second printer I ventured over the their website for technical support only to learn their technical support are closed on Saturdays. That did it as Epson offers technical support on Saturdays. I think the competitor would rather sell and support cameras. This model was extremely easy to set up, just be patient! A great product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Computer! We really like our ET 4550, (can't love an inanimate object-if I could, I would!). Best computer we have ever owned. Set up was easy, even for this non-geek!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of garbage Printer is incredibly noisy, requires envelopes to be fed indivdually (no capability to load 10 or 15 at once), and very slow. Process for using alternate paper sizes (I do about half my printing on legal paper) is complex. The only positive thing is the ink tanks. It was purchased to replace an Epson WF-4020 - a great printer that I wore out - and I returned it within 24 hours, replacing it with a WF-4640 that is much quieter and can stack load envelopes, although - contrary to Epson's claims - cannot duplex legal size paper and is slow to start printing when doing a large job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best printer ever While the purchase cost seems high relative to other printers, the performance is unbeleivanle. Here it is, almost 2 years later, and I still hav eto refill the ink tanks and this after very heavy usage.
