    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Getting Black ink cartridges I bought this unit at Walmarts about 2 months ago. When I tried to buy black ink, the only 2 cartridges I could get from Walmart were both bad or wouldn't recognize the cartridge, and of course as of today 4 weeks later I finally went online and bought the ink and finally got it 2 days ago. If I had known the ink was so difficult to get and so much more than the ink for my old epson printer (epson WF-2540 which uses the 200 series ink, I cant tell one difference between the 200 and the 212 the cartridges are Identical) So before you buy one, check the avalability of the 212 ink cartridges.) I also can't believe how few pages I can print with the black or colored inks. They go real fast if you print just a couple of 8x10 photo's, so in my opinion unless you like to buy lots of ink.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice printer but trying to order ink is almost impossible. I guess you get what you pay for. After using the keypad on my other printers which you used the lit up screen on this one the screen is lit but you use a side screen and the arrow keys and they don’t light up.so I have to get a flashlight because there isn’t a light where it sits.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome printer This printer is awesome. I like its size fit perfectly in my small office. It is lightweight and was very easy to set up. It has a quick guide that I liked a lot because it is written in 2 languages English and French I speak both languages do I was pleased. Cartridges were very easy to install. This Printer is multifunctional you can print, scan, copy and fax with it. I mostly love that I can print from my phone through the voice activated assistant that is the best feature for me. I have been using this printer for almost 2 months now and so far so good nothing that I don't like. I definitely recommend this printer especially if you like to print from you mobile like me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets all my expectation! The Epson was an easy setup. I like that it is compact and that it fits nicely in my home office as my new desk is not very large. It is a big plus that I can easily print on both sides of the page. Being wireless is the greatest as it eliminates more wires from cluttering under the desk and is easy to access from any gadget of mine or other family members who always seem to need to use it! It is quieter than my previous printers and I appreciate that it will hold 100 sheets of paper and I don't constantly have to stop and add paper. And in scanning or faxing, it will hold up to 30 pages which is helpful also. As a realtor, I am always scanning and emailing and printing documents. The Epson is efficient and provides good quality results and fast printing. I also print out picture brochures and listings full of color photos and am pleased with the results. Works great and I love it! This is a review for the Epson WorkForce WF-2850 All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all in one printer I recently started using the epson workforce all in one printer, I must say that I’m absolutely blown away from the time I opened the box until the time I set it up and started using it. The overall print performance is like no other printer I’ve ever used. The ink on every document is very bold and all documents are very easily read. Bottom line if your looking for a great printer this epson printer is for you. It prints any and all very quickly, I actually love the fact that I haven’t had any issues with any paper jams, you will definitely be happy with this printer just like myself.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winner! When you live in a home with a college student, a cop, a working mother and a teenager, you'll need an essential ingredient when it comes to turning text and images into paper. I am fortunate enough to review the most efficient printer there is, the Epson WorkForce WF-2850 All-in-One Printer. I received this printer for a beta review and I am impressed. The printer itself is light and compact. It has amazing printing quality and supports wifi direct and mobile connectivity. My college student has been writing essays on a roll, the feature that syncs in with your Google account is phenomenal. It helps her whenever she's rushing to meet deadlines. No ink issues, no alignment issues. Just a click of a button and you are good to go. I can't tell you enough how much this has helped her. Any image you print out will come out as you want them with no pixelation necessarily. I've printed out a few 4x6 pictures and there was zero distortions on the image. For eight weeks, I've had nothing but good experiences. Epson has elevated the printing industry. Overall, this truly is an All-in-one printer. This is a review for the Epson WorkForce WF-2850 All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Voice Activated Printing! I love this printer. The printer is a great size and doesn't take up too much space in my already crowded office. The printer prints fast and with good print quality. My kids particularly loved the voice activated printing feature! :) Most importantly, it was super easy for people who came into the office to hook up their lap tops, phones, and ipads to print. There is a lot of traffic so this was key! This printer is incredibly user friendly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Print from your phone! I've been using this printer for a month or two now. I found it was very easy to set up, very user friendly. I love that I can set it up to print from my ipad or iphone, because 80% of the time I'm on one of those devices vs my laptop. I used to have to email myself links to print later from my laptop and now I don't have to do that! I have yet to try the voice activated printing yet but that's my next step. This printer prints fast and I have been impressed with the quality. I love the compact size. It replaced a much bulkier printer that I couldn't store easily. One thing I don't like about Epson printers is that if you run out of the yellow ink for example, and I want to print a black and white page, it won't print until you replace the yellow. This is a pet peeve of mine. Most of my printing is black ink only and I wish it wouldn't matter if the other colors were low since they aren't being used for that print job.
