    Epson knocks it out of the park again

    I honestly wasn’t expecting to be impressed when I was offered to beta test the Epson WF-4740, as I already had a multi-function printer at home that I liked. I’m glad to say I was wrong! I had about two weeks to put the machine through its paces, so I haven’t done extensive testing but so far it’s been great. Here’s why: - Build quality is solid. This is a heavy printer, to the extent that, when I saw the unpacking instructions want you to pull the printer out of the box using plastic bag handles, I thought the bag would split due to the weight of the printer (fortunately it did not). It was also securely packed, and all loose or moveable components were attached with so much blue tape I could probably build a Smurf. No wussy, creaky plastic pieces here. The ink cartridges were both taped and vacuum sealed to keep them from leaking or drying out. - Set up was pretty easy. I used the quick-start guide and was able to get the test print pages going within a few minutes. Wifi setup was decent; the first time the software on my PC thought the wifi setup had failed (likely a timeout issue) but running it a second time resolved it. I was able to print from my iPhone directly as an AirPrint device within minutes of connecting the printer to my home wifi - Two thumbs up on the print quality. It’s inkjet, so don’t expect laser print quality, but it’s not far off and doesn’t scream “this will run in the rain” like a lot of older inkjet technology. Colors on plain paper are completely usable (so you can print a lot of cat pictures and stick them to your fridge) and when I used glossy photo paper, I was solidly impressed. The colors popped and the black was not greyed-out - Noise level is fairly low (the cats did not panic when the printer started) though, being inkjet, you will hear cartridge carrier and paper advance noise. Once you’re done printing, you may head a little additional noise, which I believe is the ink cartridge carrier resetting and/or self-cleaning. - Scanning worked flawlessly, even at 1200dpi (which would cause my other multi-function printer to throw errors). Speed to scan is good, and color representation is clear. The interface is nice and simple as well, asking you just the right questions (what are you scanning, where do you want to save the file, what do you want to name it, what the scan dpi is, etc). - The control panel is great! It’s honestly a relief to not have to squint at a tiny non-backlit monochrome display to determine what mode I’m in and what the printer is trying to tell me. The icons are unique enough to be fairly self-explanatory, and the fact that the console pivots means you can view it easily whether it’s at eye level or higher / lower when you’re using it. Some things to know: -Printer does not come with a USB or Ethernet cable, but you probably have a shoebox full of both at home should you decide not to use it as a wireless printer - The ink cartridges are starter ones, but the estimates are about 450-500 pages, so you’ll still be able to print a lot of cat pictures before worrying about ordering the standard or XL cartridges as a refill. - Control panel has beeps turned on by default, which is a tad annoying, but the menu option to turn off the sounds is fairly easy to locate - The second paper tray does specify “plain paper only” so if you’re printing glossy photos, use the top tray I did not have a chance to test the fax functions (no landline at home anymore), or the “print from USB” feature, though I expect to play with that over the next few weeks. Overall, if I was looking for a new color multi-function printer, this would be a very strong contender. This is a review for the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4740 All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Great Printer !!

    As I received my package from FedEx, I noticed it was in the latest box design from Epson, it seems very informative for the us consumer about its features which as you know when going out to buy something and don’t have time to the research the box is your only guide and it has plenty of information on all four sides and top of the box. Just the box, alone will help you decide if you want to buy it.it seems to have quite a few good features, here are a few of them it's wireless, it prints, scans and faxes and can also be used with an ethernet RJ45 connection, it supposed to print above laser quality, claims to print 900 pages on using just black Epson 802 ink and 2600 pages with the larger 802XL ink cartridge. color printing it claims to print 650 pages with 802 ink set and 1900 with the 802XL cartriges.it prints 24 pages per minute black and 22 pages per minute in color, it also features double sided printing which in my opinion is a great feature to have in a printer especially with a small business, scan resolution 1200 x 2400dp/ppp, it also features a large LCD Screen 4.3 inches, it uses Epson's PrecisisonCore ink which is economical, durable, and has great resolution, now to the unboxing. The box is easy to open with scissors or letter opener, As I opened the box I see on top the packet with congratulation letter on selecting this product, Installation CD, manual, and quick setup guides. I must say the packet was in a very durable Ziploc bag which to me means they put a lot of attention in to packaging also to protect the contents when storing them, the printer itself was in a durable bag as well with handles for easy removal from box. but you still require some help to Take It Out. once you remove the bag and you are automatically impressed by its look, you must remove a lot of blue stabilizing tape which is what I call it. make sure you get all of it before you set it up. Under the top scanner feeder tray there you will find another packet with standard T802 ink. I made sure to have access to all doors and compartments before proceeding. and now the setup. For the setup you must have a CD-ROM, a usb cord, and if you are going to use the wired option you need the following a standard ethernet (RJ45) wire. Which is not provided. Setup for a person like me was very easy but for the average person it could be a little tricky, here’s why some laptops, like mine don’t have a CD-ROM drive.so here is the method I used to set it up which was still quite easy, since I am going the wireless route, I went to the Epson support site and downloaded the installation file to my laptop and proceeded by clicking on the install file But before that you need to use that usb cable I told you about earlier so the pc and the printer can communicate during the setup process all you do is follow the prompts which will include installing the ink also fairly easy just remember to shake each cartage 5 times before putting it in the printer , it will also do a firmware update which can take up to 10 min depending on your internet speed and its sets itself up. I thought it was simple. At the end, it will ask you to register. Now once it is set up. And you will be amazed with the speed and the quality of the test page. I highly recommend this printer. Best Epson printer I’ve had to date.by the way you can also set it up stand alone, wirelessly through the control center itself on the printer but it does require you know your SSID and password for your router. My only concern was the lack of media for people without a cd drive, the folding out of the output tray extender can sometimes be annoying depending on the angle of the control center (LCD Touch screen).

    My Go-To Business Printer!

    Posted
    superwario

    I’ve had the Epson 4740 for quite awhile and I definitely think that this is a keeper! I’ve owned many other laser and inkjet printers in the past for my accounting business that I run out of my home and this one has a very sweet list of features that give me the confidence I need to run my business without worrying about breakdowns and inconveniences. 4740 vs 4720 As a preface, I previously have had the Epson 4720 which I liked, but this new 4740 rounded off the rough edges. The 4740 has a 500 page paper capacity versus only 250 on the 4720, AND we finally have duplex printing on the new 4740 which is great for those who like to save paper like me. Speed From pressing the ON button to hitting print on my iPhone and/or laptop, I counted about 7 seconds for the first full color page to come out of the printer. That beats all of my previous inkjet and laser printers by probably about 10 seconds (although comparable to the 4720). I tested the duplex printing and it was equally as impressive taking about 10 seconds to print full color duplex print jobs. Once the initial page comes out, color pages come out within seconds of each other. I was honestly blown away by the speed since this matches the commercial printers I’ve seen in downtown office buildings for a larger accounting firm I used to work at. Black and white pages come even quicker and I’d bank on probably no more than 2 seconds per page. Amazing. Quality For quality this one was impressive. I printed photo’s using photo quality paper and the colors were extremely bright and popped off the page. However, I’d say that the quality is not on-par with the professional printer that I have that is built specifically for photos. The difference was that for really sunny shots and bright colors, the colors tend to wash out slightly; but for a multi-purpose office printer I was very impressed. I also use this a lot for my Client’s tax returns and financial statements and I use higher quality dense paper and I have not once seen my A4 paper jam up inside the machine. The quality of the build on this printer is good, and the quality of the printing for tax return and general word processing use exceeded my expectations since I like to provide my Client’s with clear documents. Scanner and WiFi The scanner bed is only for those that use it for A4 or smaller documents, but for me that is my only use so it was okay for me. The quality here was also great and I could not tell the difference between the original and scanned copy. My old scanner had lots of artifacting but this one is very clean and crisp. I also wanted to add how easy it was to setup and use the WiFi. The printer detected my home router immediately and my iPhone was able to connect to the printer just as easily. The setup walks you through each and every step and I was able to get up and going within minutes. The printer did go through about 5 minutes’ worth of firmware updates when WiFi was first connected, but after that the printer usually updates by itself when not in use which is great. I love the fact that the only wire I need for this printer is the power cable and that’s it!!! Noise For me I don’t mind printer noise, and I’d say that the hums and noises that come from this printer is very minimal, but do not expect to not hear anything at all as it is still a mechanical device. I’d say that the noises on this printer is very equivalent to the 4720 if not the same. Ink Usage This printer uses the slim 802 cartridges and you can also use the XL cartridges as well. After about 500 pages of black and white and 200 pages of full color, I still have not received any kind of low ink warning so I think the ink conservancy of this device is pretty good so far. Conclusion This printer pretty much has it all. Speed, quality, and versatility for me to efficiently run my home business. I always hate the task of printing documents because of jams etc, but this printer solved all my printer problems of yore and actually makes printing a joy. I just want to emphasize again, THIS THING PRINTS FAST!!! This is a review for the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4740 All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Overall, a winner!

    I received the Epson and have been experimenting with it for a week, and finally turned off my Brother laser last night because I have found a perfect replacement (at least for my purposes). It seems that the ease of use and speed benefits of the 4740 outweigh any benefits of the laser, and it uses far less energy, so it's time for that old beast to be put in the closet. First impression: As others have mentioned, the unpacking and install went pretty smoothly, the plastic bag with handles that it rests in from the box made it a one-person job, although it is not heavy at all. I set this up to run on a network that has a Windows 10 and a Windows 7 system, and also tested it with an ipad and android phone and all functionality worked better than expected. Features that were tested: Ethernet and wifi connections, print, fax (send/rcv) over a voip line, 2-sided and color photo printing, NFC, scan to USB, scan to email, email to print, 2-sided ADF scan, and scan to network folder. Most users are not going to need ALL of these functions, but it was helpful to know that there are options for different user's needs. Everything worked great, intuitive to figure out and I was impressed. Install: The install was simple, and very quick, however the Install Wizard screens were almost beta-looking plain in appearance, and the written English was awkward. It could use another pass by a native speaker or tech writer to get that polish that makes a product look more professional. The rest of the software, quick start page, and online manual were great, no complaints! The User's Guide is now a bookmark in my browser, as is the control page screen (Epson connect), although I wish it was able to do more. See Wish list below. A few negatives: during install, the last step is to put some icons on the desktop. Even though there is a "cancel" button, it's disabled and you have no choice but to click "Finish" and create icons on the desktop. Don't tease the user, this should be an option via a checkbox on this final screen. During install, the first thing it did after being connected to the network was to find a firmware update. The only problem was that the wizard was still open on the PC, so the printer and the PC were both trying to get and install it. It didn't cause a problem, but I'd recommend doing this via the printer screens. As for networking, the printer name is labeled differently in the direct connection vs. the shared network connection (in one case, listed as Epson WF-4740, and in the network share, "WF-4740" with no reference to Epson). The result is, it changes how they are displayed in an alphabetical printer list, and it took a minute to figure this out. The timeout for the touch screens by default is set for 1 minute, and during setup, when I was not finished with an entry (in the contacts list or network folder location, for example), it timed out and erased what progress I made so far. If you have to look up anything (ex: password for email setting), it can be frustrating, so I'd recommend changing the timeout to a longer time before doing this step. The setup for the email and network folder were a bit clunky. It would have been very helpful if this were editable from the software on the computer. The keyboard screen was confusing until I figured out that the little globe image was NOT just international keyboard, but it was also the way to switch between a-z and 0-9. (3 way toggle) This was not intuitive at all. Perhaps a different icon here would help. Wish list: As mentioned, it would be extremely helpful to have access to a control page from the PC, particularly for entering multiple contacts and other settings. The Mac software can do this, apparently, but it was not available on the PC or other devices. Nice bonus: The printer has a unique email address, so you can send a document via email to the printer and have it print remotely. Photos/color: Printing photos was very fast, although the color needed to be tweaked a bit. Personally, I rarely print photos without messing with color first, but it might take a few prints to get it right, and that means a wa$te of ink and paper. And frankly, an inkjet is never going to replace a color printer for me, they just don't last - but for printing regular color documents, this was more than sufficient and text and color were crisp and solid. I was frustrated by trying to resize a jpg photo from the android Epson iprint software, and ended up making it into a pdf first for it to fit on the page. It would be nice if there were a "scale" option in the settings, but it is limited to printing full page (borderless or border), 2-up or 4-up. Will continue to mess around with this and may post an update. Scanning: My favorite feature was scanning, not only is is super-fast, but the adf double-sided scan was a HUGE time saver. It created a 2-page color pdf @200dpi in under 15 seconds! I can see this coming in very handy for office organization and I now feel empowered to go down the road to becoming "paperless" (or at least get on the on-ramp). I detest the over-used term "jaw-dropping", but I admit I did silently mouth "wow!" when I tried this. Summary: The speed and print quality of documents, and convenience of the networking, as well as printing and scanning from a variety of devices makes this Epson a big win for me. Aside from a few nits (from an admittedly picky geek gal), I'd definitely recommend the WF-4740.

    On my previous review, I gave this printer 4 stars. All functionality of this printer is excellent and I would love to give it 5 stars. However, as previously mentioned the ink cartridges are difficult to find and can only be ordered from Epson or Best Buy. No one stocks them. In further review, I must lower this rating even lower. Besides ink cartridges, this printer also has something called a maintenance box which is item T6715. I have been unable to find this kit, so I called Epson directly. They confirmed, despite this printer being sold for over 4 months, they have not made this kit available for purchase yet. Keep in mind, this is an approximately $15 serviceable part like an ink cartridge. It slowly gets used up as you print and clean the heads, and once it is used up the printer will cease to work until you replace it. Epson admitted to me they have a long waiting list of people who bought this printer who can no longer print simply because they are waiting on Epson to start selling this kit. That is unacceptable, hence the lower score. I still gave it two stars because the casual home user will most likely not use this kit up entirely for several months to a year, and hopefully Epson will be selling them by that time and this will not affect the majority of users. But the fact that Epson, through bad planning and decision making, has put any users through this issue warrants a lower rating. I would not recommend this printer to anyone until the ink and maintenance box are available for purchase at common retail locations. Once that happens I would highly recommend this printer because functionally it is a really nice printer.

    An amazing all in one business printer

    This is not my first printer from Epson, but definitely the best one yet. First things first, I really liked the extremely informative box that it comes in explaining all the different cool features that this multifunction printer can do. Unpacking the box, I really liked how everything was secured enough to ensure no damage through the shipping process, but at the same time very easy to unpack and set up. Most importantly, I really liked the fact that I didn’t have to start putting together pieces and trays on multi-part cords. All that was required (the starter toner and power cord) was securely placed under the top tray. Setting up the printer with my computer and network was also very smooth, very easy process and had it done in minutes. The extremely clear and precise setup guide was very helpful with anything I wasn’t sure about. I really love the very clear and responsive touch screen.I did have one issue with the paper tray not taking the paper properly, and that the tray has a little wiggle room at the end, but after the first confusion everything else was very smooth. I happened to be setting it up wirelessly, but it would’ve been nice to have had the Ethernet cable and or USB cable included. Setting up the scanner to my computer through my network, through the cloud services, and through email was all extremely smooth and very clear options to help configure The printer quality is very good, speed is pretty decent (is toner after all) but even for color printing, it was pretty good! To round up: Pros: Double paper tray with a 500-page capacity total Great scanning capabilities Love the touch screen Wi-Fi/NFC Cons: Toner printer I really like this printer, and I have it setup in the middle of my office, and It really – truly is a WORKFORCE PRO PRINTER! “This is a review for the Epson Workforce Pro WF-4740 All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Great printer for home office or small business

    I immediately noticed that the printer is encased in plastic with handles on both sides, which makes it easy to remove from the box. The instructions including a CD, A Quick Guide, and color pamphlet are right on top of the printer as you open the box. The set up was pretty easy using the color pamphlet as the instructions were clear and concise. I really like the large flip screen on the printer, the screen is clear, with easy to follow instructions and the screen will let you know if there are any problems with the printer, updates needed etc. I also like that it has a flatbed scanner and a sheet feeder. Sometimes you need to line up a page on a flatbed when a sheet feeder just will not do. The software install went smoothly though it did not start up once CD was loaded. Once I clicked on the Epson icon on the C: Drive, the install started without a problem. I was able to set up wireless and mobile printing pretty quickly. The wireless function was added without me having to do anything, the printer did all the work since I already have a wireless network setup. I was able to print a test page without any problems. Adding the mobile app to my phone from Google play was a cinch. I like being able to print remotely as this adds a level of security printing to my home. This printer has the ability to print from 2 trays in addition to duplex printing; printing on both sides. What a great way to save on the use of paper. Printing was very fast and my test fax came through without any problem. I had to update the software manually by clicking the Epson icon. The software would not update to the latest version without doing that. Unfortunately, I believe the software update crashed my computer. Make sure you have a backup of your system and a recent copy of a boot disk before installing and updating the software. I would like to see in the instructions or quick guide is whether or not you can print in black if one or more of the cartridges are empty. Many other printers will not allow this and this may set Epson ahead of the game if this is allowed. One other thing I would like to see on future versions of this printer and that is to just shut down once I hit the power button instead of having to confirm it on the screen. That makes 2 steps to shut down the printer. Overall, I really like the printer, the ease of setup and ease of use make this an ideal printer for home office or small business. I would recommend this printer for those with home offices or small businesses as I indicated previously. Because the setup is so easy you will be printing in no time.

    Unpacking was easy. Helpfull handles on the bag allowed easy removal from the box. After removing all of the blue tape I plugged in my ethernet and power cable. After powering on the printer the screen guides you on how to install the ink cartridges. While the printer was charging the cartridges I downloaded the newest software package from epsons web site https://epson.com/Support/Printers/All-In-Ones/WorkForce-Series/Epson-WorkForce-Pro-WF-4740/s/SPT_C11CF75201 . I opted to manually set up a static IP on my network but the software had the option to automatically set it up for me and printed my first test page. After everything was good an automatic firmware update was installed. So far so good except that there are no photo paper samples included. I have been using this printer for my small drafting business and have been printing a large amount of text and black and white line drawings. This printer is faster and more crisp than my old laser. Regarding color I printed a few snaps from my phone using the Epson iPrint android app. Again I am extremely happy with the output. All you have to do is select the photos you want to print pick your options and hit print. The scanner is a scanner and does a great job at what it is supposed to do. I have included two color and B/W images printed and scanned with this printer. All In all I have had no problems with this printer and I am very happy with its output quality and speed.
