Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast & High Quality! This printer was super easy to set up and prints high quality pages very quickly! Connecting to print from my iPhone was a breeze through Wi-Fi. I even printed some photos and it worked like a charm! Perfect for the office!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Printer I've Owned. Seriously. This is a review for the Epson ET-8700 that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. Overview: This printer is the best all around printer that I've owned. It is big, but it has fast print speed, quality scanning, super easy ink (since you don't have to replace it), and was much easier to set up than others that I have tried. This is a big plus because I often find hooking up a printer to wifi and keeping it in the system is a pain, Also, the printer can print from my cell phone. Nice! Pros - Easy Set Up (even the set up of the big ink wells for eco tank was easy and now I don't have to change Cyan all the time!) - Easy print from phone (I've had this in the past and it was inconsistent. This seems much better. Maybe its newer and they've figured that stuff out) - Fast Printing - No replacing ink!!! - Easy and quality scanning - Holds lots of paper - Strong photo quality Cons - Its pretty big (but it does hold a lot of paper. This a good all around printer for a small biz etc). - Its still louder than laser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shiny Super Printer Epson makes a fantastic and sleek printer. So far I've noticed the machine itself, I am not going to lie, it is BIG. This isn't an issue if you're working in a traditional office and the shine of the printer really tells your coworkers who's printing with some character. Setting up was easier than picking out a place to grab pizza. I would say that it took about 40 minutes with 30 of it spend unboxing, removing all the packaging and disposing of the trash. Actual installation of the software and set up was only like 5-10 minutes baby! The main selling point for me is the 2 year supply of ink that it comes with because sometimes you need to print without the worry that it'll be your last print. I would say it's like the BMW suv of printers able to print fast, quiet and lasts forever all while looking amazing. Overall, I highly recommend the Epson ET-8700 EcoTank All-in-One Printer as a home office workhorse. This is a review for the Epson ET-8700 EcoTank All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Home Office Workhorse I am a big fan of Epson printers and I was looking to replace/upgrade my existing Epson WF-2760 for my home office, and the Epson ET-8700 EcoTank All-in-One Printer is the ideal home office machine. As far as the machine itself, I am not going to lie, it is BIG. For me, I don’t have a true dedicated home office and it was too big to put on my desk so it sits on the floor next to my desk. It’s not a big deal and the fact that the touch screen flips up makes it easy to operate the controls without having to get on your hands and knees. Also, the features that come with the bigger size more than compensate for it. Set up was extremely easy. I would say that it took about 40 minutes with 30 of it spend unboxing, removing all the packaging and disposing of the trash. The actual installation itself probably took about 7-10 minutes max. The directions were extremely easy to follow and I was able to set it up wirelessly without having to use the included cd. The main selling point for me is the 2 year supply of ink that it comes with. With my old Epson I was constantly having to change the inks which was extremely expensive and I always needed to have extra ink on hand just in case. With the two year supply of ink, the printer virtually pays for itself in ink savings alone. I also love the high capacity paper tray and the ability to print 2 sided documents. The printer is extremely quiet and very fast. The output is very high quality. Overall, I highly recommend the Epson ET-8700 EcoTank All-in-One Printer as a home office workhorse. As a high volume document printer, this fits all my needs! This is a review for the Epson ET-8700 EcoTank All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, Reliable and Great Printing This is the third printer we have used for our business. All have been Epson, and all have been a tremendous improvement. My first printer was a basic printer that I thought would be enough for company. I quickly realized that the printer was not designed for heavy printing. The inks cartridges were costly and did not last long. Enter the Epson ET-8700 EcoTank. This printer has been nothing but a joy. Taking the printer out of the packaging it was clear this is a serious printer. For the size of the printer it the actual footprint is not that large, and it fits comfortably on a small side table. The printer was secured with dozens of blue tape pieces that held everything securely in place for shipping. It was a pain to remove all these pieces, but this is a one time task. Setting up the printer with my Windows 10 laptop was very easy. The directions were clear and simple except when inserting the ink. It wasn't clear that a piece had to be removed for the ink to fit.Two years worth of ink come in the box.The included software walked me through the installation and the upgrade of the printer's firmware. The entire software process took roughly 12 minutes. When the install finished, the magic began. This printer is fast. The test page was printed almost instantly. Faster than any of the big office printers I have used. I have only had this printer for a short period of time, but I can already tell I will love it. For the next two years, I can print and print without any worry about running out of ink. I would recommend this printer to anyone that needs to do a lot of printing or just wants a workforce that won't need any ink for two years. This is a review for the Epson ET-8700 EcoTank All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome touch screen! Loving this printer so far. This thing is a beast. When I first picked up the large 54lb box, I knew this wasn't your average printer. This is NOT a cheap lightweight home printer. It's a true office multi-function office printer. Unboxing was simple. Opening the box, you are presented with 11 boxes of ink. 2 large Black, 3 Cyan, 3 Magenta, and 3 Yellow. I was a little thrown off my the number of ink packs. I was expecting "tanks" of ink due to the name. After getting all the ink boxes out of the way, you lift the printer out of the box using the handles built into the plastic wrapping. Once the plastic wrap is removed there are bunch of pieces of tape to remove. The printer is 99% assembled. All I had to do was attach the paper tray on the front, and install the ink cartridges. I should note I set it up, and primarily use it with our Macs. The setup on the Mac was easy. I downloaded the most recent software from Epson's website instead of using the included CD. My favorite feature so far is the touch screen. It's big and responsive. It made things like setting up wifi super easy. My old LaserJet took forever to set up networking. Using the touchscreen on the front of the ET-8700, it was set up within seconds. Speaking of wifi, Apple Airprint works wonderfully. Printing from ipads and iphones have been super simple Printing is fast too. Again, much faster than my old LaserJet. The only think I was a little disappointed by was photo printing quality. Granted, this is an office printer and not designed to print photos. It'd just be nice to not need a separate printer for photos. I've had a lot of printers over the last 20 years. The Epson's have always been my favorite. They've always been reliable, and the ink is relatively reasonably priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Pretty sweet printer! It scans, copies & prints in great quality. It holds a lot of paper in its tray but also allows for top feed for one off odd sizes. Printing is pretty quick and you also have the ability to turn on quiet mode which slows printing SLIGHTLY but trades a little noise for a little less speed. The printer was easy to setup using the. Wifi was super easy to get connected. This thing holds PLENTY of ink and the ink container is sealed in what does indeed look like a caprisun drink container. I highly recommend it to anyone that needs a home office size printer. This is a review for the Epson ET-8700 EcoTank All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Printer This is a review for the Epson ET-8700 EcoTank All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. The Epson ET-8700 printer is one big solid printer. The set up was fast and easy, the longest part was taking off all the shipping tape. I love how solid the printer feels, reminds me of the printers I use in the office and it does it all. Don't know if I will ever use the fax though, I don't even have a home line. It would be better if they partnered with a fax over internet service. The touchscreen is very useful and is a perfect size. I had it connected to the router fast and easy and was printing from my phone in no time. I love that the printer comes with extra ink so you don't have to worry about running out. I look forward to using this printer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very powerful Epson printer, and the perfect size! This is a review for the Epson ET-8700 EcoTank All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. I have had many Epson printers over the years - I gravitate toward Epson and Brother. This model has all of the standard things you would expect in an Epson. Speed. High quality laser printer-like outputs, good connectivity with wifi and easy installation. But what I like best about this model is its manageable size. You don't need to dedicate another room to it and still get multiple formats, double-sided - everything you could want. Just more manageable. Definitely my top Epson so far.
