My Take on This Printer
I have been using this printer over the last week and have to say that I am thoroughly impressed. I have tried Epson printers in the past and have found them to be very reliable and the quality to be top notch. This printer definitely improves upon the printing speed that I have seen with the Epson printers in the past and with the large capacity printing that this provides, you will be covered no matter if it is a large or small print job that you have on the radar.
Setting up this printer was a breeze, and even coordinating the wireless options between my different computers was simple and I had no problems with wireless printing from different areas within my home (which is great for the family that may be trying to print from different area or floors within the same house).
The scanning quality was high and I found that the image that I received after scanning was one that all could read with no problems.
Also, as someone who is frugal I am always looking for printers that will save me money, and I have found with this printer that it has some nice features that will allow me to do this. I love the two sided printing and while I have yet to see my overall electric bill, if the 50% saving is what really comes to pass I will be very impressed and happy with these results.
The printer states that you should be able to get about five reams of paper out of the ink cartridges which is pretty good. I know that some of the stores do have larger capacity cartridges that should be able to extend this even further into the future too.
The printer is a bit heavier than some other printers that I have had, but I will attribute this to the extra functions that it provides you as a consumer.
The printer comes in a very well protected box (somewhat too protected in my opinion). The company has painstakingly made sure that all parts are taped down, so definitely make sure to find all of this nd remove before using the printer for the first time.
One other item that was very cool was EPSON Connect, which allows you to wirelessly print from any and all of your tech toys. This is something that I appreciated as the computer that I usually use is not connected to this printer, and what that means is usually I have to save something on a flashdrive, bring it to a connected computer and then print it, or connect the flashdrive into the printer itself and then print. All of this usually leads to frustration and making me downright fed up with the whole process. Not anymore! This printer and the EPSON Connect technology makes printing easy, and now wherever I am in my home I can print to the printer which is AWESOME!
All-in-all I was impressed with the quality of this printer and what it provides the consumer. I see this as a great fit for a small (not high volume printing) office or for a small to medium sized family. Note that you will need to have the room for this printer as it is larger than a typical desktop printer and with that in mind you have to verify that you have the space and data connections available to make this work for all that will come in contact with it.
