    Workforce ET-4750 EcoTank All-In-One Setup for this type of printer was easy, at first I guessed the weight is about 10 to 15 pounds, website shows it is 16 pounds, so not that heavy, but keep in mind every person may have a different opinion. When opening the package you will get 2 years of ink in the box: 2 sets of bottles each for each color, so you will get 2 black(T502), 2 cyan(T502), 2 magenta(T502), and 2 yellow(T502) ink bottles. The ink you have with this printers equivalent to 30 sets of ink cartridges. Also the price of ink may vary store to store, overall the prices are fair. Refilling the printer with ink took me less than 10 minutes to do, but each person's experience will be different. The printer has a an auto stop function when refilling, so when you go to refill black for example when the ink is full, the process will stop filling and you may or may not have ink left over. Also in the box will be the power cord, manual, and CR-Rom / Software. Once your printer is out of box you have a couple different options, to either plug in via Ethernet or via Wireless, you can as well plug the printer into your PC via usb cord. For the average user, setup should be easy if needing to go ahead use setup guide, if you have issues beyond that as I know everyone is different, then reach out to Epson support. So I went ahead did set the printer up on my network with both Ethernet and Wireless capabilities, then plugged the USB into my Workstation PC. Over all setup was easy for me and in timely manner. I as well when setting up printers did not use the CD/software that comes with it, I prefer manual setups. For the average user I would suggest using the CD / software that comes with your product, but of course this depends on your tech savviness. So in my opinion I can see this printer being used in both a small or medium side business environment or person use. It would mainly depend on how many pages the user is wanting to print, if you are needing a printer to print a lot of pages in a given amount of time then this printer is for you. Also I went ahead tested how this printer works with copying and printing from a book, images from the internet, documents, as well tried the 2 sided printing and quality of each print was good in my book. Side note for 2 sided printing: I will point out for those who may happen to read this review, you may see some say this printer does not support 2 sided printing, as stated on the box and Epson website, but it does in fact support this. It took me a while to figure it out, you have to make sure when doing 2 sided printing you open the top feed bay as I will call it and on the top tray put the pages facing up, the printer will scan/copy each page needing to be printed 2 sided. The process in my opinion was fast and easy, but take into consideration it will depend on each user and how many pages you are needing to print at a time. The speed of the prints were fast, but again this will depend on each user. I preferably wish the following were possible in my opinion: bigger touch screen, 5Ghz Wi-Fi Network Connection, front USB and memory slot, as stated I would like to have seen these, but not a big deal, but overall wished the printer did support the 5GHz network connection I mentioned. Pros: Energy Star Qualified. Print/Copy/Scan/Fax. Ethernet port capability. USB cord to PC in case you wish to not be Wi-Fi. Duplex Printing. EcoTank, an upgrade to having to replace ink cartridges all the time. Supports 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi Connection Prints 14,000 Pages black & 11,200 Pages Color. Cons: higher price than other printers. Screen size is small 2.4 color touchscreen. Does not support 5GHz Wi-Fi connection. No USB in front. No memory card print options. So the number one question to ask is, would I recommend this, and the answer would be yes. I have own several printers in my life and the number one issue I faces was having to replace each ink cartridge which can be an issue depending on different situations. With the Ecotank it is life and time saver. Life saver because you have a tank of ink, you do not have to go and buy ink cartridges all the time, example say you are a college student or writing a report for your job and you run out of ink, stores closed and unable to print what is due within couple hours or next day. (everyone experience is different of course), Well having the ecotank, which is equivalent to 30 sets ink cartridges, allows you to have more ink on hand and even better yet with this printer you are given 2 years of ink, which basically depends on how much you print. To add depending on your budget, may depend on if you want to get this printer now or wait for a price drop, or even a sale. Overall I used the printer to do a lot of copying of medical papers, printing research, and photos. The quality of photos was great as I used Epson photo paper and standard paper, remember quality will depend on the style of paper used for whatever may be printed.

    Beta testers review of the Epson WorkForce ET-4750

    Beta testers review of the Epson WorkForce ET-4750 EcoTank All-in-One Printer Unboxing the printer In the box you get the printer, documentation (Setup and User Guide), Two year’s worth of ink (2 black, 2 yellow, 2 blue and 2 red) and the software installation CD. Once the printer is removed from the box it just takes minutes to remove the tape and other packing materials from the printer. After removing all of the packing material, I reviewed the setup instructions and found that they were very helpful and precise. The step by step instruction provided in the box was very easy to follow for the initial setup before turning on the printer. Filling the ink reservoirs was very easy and no mess was seen while adding the ink to the reservoir. There will be left in the bottles after filling the reservoir. Just store these in a cool place until you can add it to the printer. Printer Setup The printer setup took about 30 minutes to complete. The first step was the install paper in the paper try and turn on the printer. The printer will begin asking the user what type of paper was installed. After the paper type is confirmed the printer then moves into the printer alignment process. Once the alignment is complete the printer will ask the user how the printer will be setup on their network. There are two ways to setup the printer on your network either through a network cable or wireless. I picked wireless which was easy to setup. Once the printer was connected to the network, the printer reached out to Epson server and found a new firmware to install. I allowed the printer to update the firmware which took about 10 minutes to complete. Over all the setup was easy and the step by step screen instructions helped move the process along. PC setup Installing the software on my Windows 10 PC was quick and easy to do. The CD provides step by step instructions. During the setup the software was able to locate the printer on my network and install all available drivers and applications without any issues. Installing the software on my MAC was also easy and the step by step instructions were very helpful. The installation only took 10 minutes to complete on both systems from start to finish. Printing and Scanning from the PC Printing from my PC is easy to preform and the print was fast. It was done printing before I realized it. I do feel that printing duplex and in color takes a little longer. Printing two sided was easy to select and you can also make it a default in the printer setting. Scanning from the PC was simple to preform via the scanning software provided by Epson. I was able to send the scan to anywhere I indicated in the software. Printing and Scanning from the MAC Printing from the MAC just as easy from any application. My wife’s job requires her to print a lot of pages daily. The printer kept up with it without any issues. Printing two sided was easy to select and you can also make it a default in the printer setting. Scanning was also done just like the PC. Printing from Mobile Phone or Tablet Printing from my mobile devices and tablets were simple the software was installed and printer was added to the profile. I was able to print PDF and any website. Having this option is great and it helps if you want to send something to your printer at home and remotely. Overall reaction Overall this printer was very user friendly, quick to setup and use. This device could be used as a home based business printer or a printer for a small office. The two-sided printing which helps with paper costs and being environment friendly. Storing the ink is easy and does not take up a lot room unlike traditional ink cartridges. At this time I’m not able to find any problems with the printer. I have no complaints and it and works just as I expected it to. Look forward to seeing what I can print or scan next with my Epson Workforce EcoTank All-in-one Printer.

    Great Printer. Huge Savings On Ink.

    I've owned three printers over the past 14 years. A 2004 Epson that worked perfectly for 8 years before it needed replacement, a 2012 HP that lasted 4 1/2 years and a Canon that only made it for 1 1/2 years. All were mid - high grade / mid - high dollar (for home use) models. While I considered going with a "Brother" printer this time around I just couldn't get around how great my original Epson was and went to their web site to check out their current offerings. The WorkForce Eco Tank series immediately struck me because, as we've all come to know, printer ink cartridges are ridiculously over priced and, over the long haul, will run you two to three times the price you paid for the printer you're installing them in. The idea of getting around two years of ink included in the purchase price of the printer was just too much of a savings to pass up. I'd originally decided, from my research at Epson's web site, to purchase the ET-3750. It pretty much met all of my needs and the MSRP was outstanding when you include the ink. When I went to Best Buy, (one of my very few "go to" sites), I found that they were offering the ET-4750 at $100 dollars off which made it the same price as the ET-3750. Going back to Epson's web site I learned the ET-4750 would up the tray capacity from 150 sheets to 250 sheets and add the ability to fax. I'm not a fax person but, the extra hundred sheets X increased product value made the upgrade to the ET-4750 a done deal. As usual, Best Buy provided a fast delivery to my front door and I was able to complete the setup in less than an hour. The first print from a website confirmed my opinion of Epson. The definition of each printed letter was outstanding. Far better than any I'd gotten from my HP and light years better than the Canon ever delivered. My wife and I are both 63 years old and any blurred lettering is terrible for us. The ET-4750 provided the definition of crisp clarity. We both continue to be highly pleased. My earlier printers were rated "photo" printers so I worried that the ET-4750 might lack in color reproduction. Up front ..... I'm not using this printer for creating photographs on photo paper. I'm using it for printing web pages and copying documents. Web pages come out looking like mirror images and copies are hard to tell from originals. I've only owned this printer for a few months but I already consider it much better than my old HP and far better than the Canon. It's not a photo printer. If you're a photographer I suggest sticking with Epson but checking out their specialty photo printers. For everyone else ....... considering the high definition print and color accuracy and especially the amount of ink included as well as future ink expenditures, just buy it. No other printer I could find offered any competition. Nothing came close. Note* I've not used the fax machine portion of this printer. I'd guess it's totally "up to snuff". I just don't fax from my home at this point and don't know if I ever will. I'm old fashioned. No social networking, no texting, etc. Quality of print X Color reproduction X Price for what you get are the baselines for my review. One more note* The footprint of the ET-4750, (including the huge ink tanks), is smaller than any of my previous printers. It's truly the smallest of the lot. Width, Depth and Height are all less than I would have expected from a printer that provides all that the ET-4750 delivers.

    Epson came through again -- great small printer

    This is a review for the Epson WorkForce ET-4750 EcoTank Wireless All-in-One Supertank Printer. This printer is impressive. First of all, the ET-4750 is described an “All-in-One,” allowing for printing, scanning, copying, and faxing. I’m one of the dinosaurs still needing a traditional fax, and this unit works well. The 30-sheet auto-document feed is very nice if that kind of non-monitored feature is helpful. However, if not, and faxing is not a requirement, save yourself $100 and look at the ET-2750 for parallel features on everything else. This printer set-up is accomplished via USB (cable not included) or wireless network connection. First impression out of the box was that the printer is nicely compact. Total setup took about 75 minutes, from out of the box to production. The process was straight forward – no mess whatsoever on the color or black ink fill – nicely designed. You could skip some steps to shorten the software process, but I wanted full capability from the get-go, so downloaded and engaged everything. Definitely read the “START HERE” guide for installation instructions first. Because of the unique ink system, this is a critical advisory in this case. Specifically, do not connect to the printer until all steps are completed for ink tank fill and charging (about 10m). Print alignment is next for vertical and horizontal optimization (another 5m). While the printer is going through its steps, and while still not yet connected, install the software by downloading from www.Epson.com, even if you have the CD, for the most current application. Even when using the CD for the download, it will recommend running a check for updates from the website, so save yourself a step and go directly to the website from the start. Functionality, quality, as well as print, scan, copy, and faxing speeds are certainly respectable for a home or small business application. This is all definitely in line with and anticipated for a printer in this price range. The unit works very hard, but I would be willing to sacrifice some of the speed for a quieter machine. The automatic double-sided printing feature worked smoothly after designating the print job as such in print options. It saves paper; however, you will likely not want to use bargain paper to minimize bleed-through from the heavy ink coverage. Ink is the big story on this line of printers, and it comes with a very generous supply. Epson claims a full set of tanks can last up to two years. Assuming the two-year estimate is correct, and based upon the current price of replacement ink [approx. $62—or $31 per year], this printer/ink combo seems like a bargain. So I’m willing to pay a bit more upfront and minimize ongoing concern about all of the replacement cartridges of other models or brands. Viewing the ink levels from the front of the printer is a nice plus, but it is a bit difficult due to the opaqueness of the ink tank themselves (good lighting will improve this visibility). There is also a utility within the printer that tells you exactly how much ink is left, along with other stats. The 2.4” LCD screen is interactive but too small and lacks contrast for easy readability. It does, however, allow you to preview your images on the screen and edit them before you print. Note that this printer supports Google Cloud print, Apple AirPrint, as well as its own cloud printing service/mobile app called “Epson Connect.” Overall, Epson did not disappoint here and I would recommend. I would have given it 5 stars except for the small LCD screen and the noise it generates.

    Major Disappointment. Sub-par Scanning

    Posted
    AverageGuy

    I replaced an HP 7525 All-in-one printer, because it broke. I was attracted to the ET-4750 because it looked more robust, was newer, and because of the printed page output. The printed page on the Epson 4750 is not as clear as it was on my 10 year old HP 7525, but the biggest disappointment is in the scanning department. I do have frequent need to scan documents, which is the whole reason that I bought a multifunction unit instead of a straight up printer. I was used to scanning stacks of about 15-18 pages on my HP via the ADF, of two-sided documents. That old HP didn't automatically process the two-sided pages, rather, it scanned one side and then prompted me to re-insert the stack of pages upside down so that it could scan the second side. The software shuffled the pages of the scan so that the pages of the resulting pdf document would be in the correct order. (For example, when scanning a stack of 10 pages which are double sided, it would scan pages 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 but the order would be corrected before the pdf file was saved so that the pages would come out in the correct order.) I assumed that the ET-4750 would offer that same capability, especially when considering that the ET-4750 is ten years newer and costs 3 times as much as that old HP. WRONG. The ET-4750 does NOT PROVIDE ANY SUPPORT for two sided document scanning. I've scoured the user manual, the internet, and even had a couple of contacts with Espon Technical Support. Nope, the 4750 does not support any such thing, Hard to believe. I'm left with having to either settle for the pages of scan jobs coming out in the wrong order (unacceptable), or handling each page, one at a time, upon scanning (also unacceptable). This is a simple software programming issue for Epson. Their ADF hardware is no different than HP's, and whereas HP solved the problem with software, Epson does not. This is lacking. Epson, please fix this. Please release updated software that allows the ET-4750 to compete with the decade old HP 7525 which costs 2/3 less.

    Awful!

    I thought that by spending more money this would be a great printer. IT IS NOT! It prints really, really slow-if you have multiple things to print or a really big print job plan on waiting all day for it to finish. While printing it doesn't show you how many pages have printed or how many you have left, nor does it show up in my "printers" on my desktop, it only shows that one document is printing. Scanning and trying to save to my computer is a nightmare. The program is not at all user friendly (no, I'm not a novice), after two months I still haven't got the hang of it, the program is seriously one of the worst that I have ever used. Every time I replace paper to print on (or even open the tray) I have to push buttons saying it is the same paper that I was using before I can print-ridiculous! AND when you put paper in the tray sometimes it gets pushed too far back because there is nothing stopping it, there's no way to know if you've pushed it too far back (and get jammed when you push the tray in) or not far enough for the rollers to pick up. I've printed on card stock and it wouldn't let me change the setting to card stock but also wouldn't let me print on regular paper when I tried to change it. I finally gave up, rebooted the printer and just agreed that it was the same regular paper that I was using before and it finally printed. I tried putting smaller paper through (card stock thank you notes) but they kept getting jammed in the back because there is this big space between the rollers right in the middle and it doesn't pull it through. Yes, I adjusted the holder to the smaller size, the issue was the big hole in the back of the tray-there wasn't anything to stop the cards from going too far back when I pushed the tray in and the rollers wouldn't catch it. I tried printing one check on it, same thing except it jammed because it was a smaller length and the rollers couldn't push it through all the way. I ended up taping it to a blank piece of paper and then it went through. I've been so frustrated with this thing I've finally given up after two months and bought a new HP printer. The HP I had before finally died after 7 years after a lot of daily use (hence buying the Epson) so now I have bought a newer model HP and love it-just like I did before! Lesson learned-a more expensive printer does not mean it is better!

    Limited possibilities-Returning product

    I purchased this product because I wanted color, wireless, auto 2 sided printing, a document feeder, and a decent size paper tray "cassette". Though these are all features of the product, set up limits useable features. Set up took 1 hr and 20 min, fairly simple however there are steps that do not follow sequence on guide, overall not bad. Product feels like quality until you get to the paper tray "cassette" and out put tray which are thin and flimsy even the paper guide threatens to break with the slightest touch. Ink... I love the ink I understand that improvements were made and I have to say it is great. Not a drop spilled and even with the initial 10 minute ink charge it was painfree. Set up was completed for network wireless, meaning no wires from router to printer or printer to laptop. It was not difficult at all. However auto 2 sided printing is not an option, this has been confirmed by the 292 page user guide. I had no success with Wi-Fi direct either, meaning still no wires but instead of connecting laptop to internet you choose the printer to connect to. Wi-Fi direct set up also wonderful. However in order to change to a wires set up product must be uninstalled and reinstalled on laptop, and Wi-Fi has to be disabled on printer. Making the transition difficult to access auto 2 sided printing. Troubleshooting has great features. Though the touch screen is small it provides many options and "How To" walk throughs. One recommendation would be to list, "extend output tray" when having continuous no paper in cassette issue. Recommending to a friend... if I have to choose yes or no then the answer would be no. I believe a product is recommendable only if the features are useable. In short I would advise anyone to download and read through the pertent parts of the 292 page User Document from Epson to ensure it will meet their needs. I am returning the product, but will be researching to see if any other Epson EcoTanks will meet my needs. I am not hopeful as the price point was a bit high considering my needs and the prices only go up with functionality.

    Buy Eco tank printer and save money.

    Tessy

    This is my first experience with Eco Tank Printer. Love at first sight ;). The package is good. The printer is small, lightweight and compatible. Box comes with 8 ink bottle, power cable and quick start guide and Software cd (no Ethernet cable), If we need to set up via Ethernet you have to take your own). Printer setup is very easy and quick start guide is also useful. No detail guide attached. Just follows the steps in the guide for the installation. I have completed the unpacking and installation in between 30 – 45 minutes. Epson claims that the ink will last you up to 2 years, which is equal to 30 set of cartridge. The most exciting part is we can take the printout up to 14000-page black/ 11200 Page color. So it is less expensive compared to any other printer. Initial cost is high for this product but cartridge cost is low, at the same time on other printers initial cost is low but the cost of the cartridge is high. Filling the ink is very easy. Uncap the tank (blue), open the bottle and place it on tank upside down. Ink flows into the tank and stops automatically when ink filled to the upper line of the tank. Place the remaining ink aside. I was worried at the time of putting the ink into the printer and remove the bottle from the printer. Don’t worry, Ink will never spill out. Epson assembled the product very securely. The tanks that hold more ink than the normal cartridge and we can see the level of the ink. Close the tank and scanner unit. Turn on the printer. Then start setup. Follow the onscreen instruction. Ink charging takes about 10 min. After ink charging completes, we will get some space in tank to pour remainin ink from the bottle and fill the tank (Don’t waste ink ;) ). Register and driver setup in the system was easy. I did not use CD, downloaded setup software from Epson site. Installed Epson iprint app on mobile. The dashboard of the app is very simple and user-friendly. After that, I connected printer with the Wi-Fi, systems, and phone, only need to be done once. Then load the paper. We can load 250 papers in paper tray at once. We can adjust paper tray based on the size of the paper. Another interesting part is we can access print status sheet-like usage history sheet, Print counter, supply status sheet and configuration status sheet. Another one is print auto head cleaning and alignment. The location of the touch screen is not good. (We have to bend all the times if we need to use touch screen ;)). If the touchscreen is in slanting position, then managing the touch screen will be easy. All other features like printing, copy, scan, fax, USB are working fine. No way to copy to save the document. we can save the scanned document, but we need to scan documents one by one. But if they enable the option to copy to save document then it will be time-saving for us. We can change the resolution of scans. It will save ink. USB slot is in back side of the printer, which feels uncomfortable. Recommended memory slots. Print quality is outstanding. No fade or spots, ink dry very fastly after printout, No leakage, no smears or streaks. The speed of the print is also reasonable. Don’t compare with a laser printer in the case of photos, at the same time a normal color print is awesome. The printer operation is not very noisy. We do not have option to select two-side printing from touch screen, but we can select two-side printing from desktop print settings. Another interesting part is auto sleep. I would highly recommend this product to everyone especially for private use, this is a great product.

    Keep on Printing. Keep on Printing.

    Let's just cut to the parts you want to hear... is the EcoTank 4750 worth it? Yes, if you do a solid amount of printing it's been a HUGE benefit to our family. The EcoTank printers aren't the cheap purchase, but if you print a decent amount they MORE than make up for their cost with ink utilization, capacity and refill costs. NOTE: We were already heavy users of our ET-3600 before using this unit so we have familiarity with earlier models. AESTHETICS: - Small and compact - Easy to see Ink levels (although, as you would guess, the ink isn't as clear as the pics but the levels are as easy to distinguish). - Solid Build - Easy to use UI on the small touch screen - Thankfully removed the keypad (3600 had a 10 key) for all inputs and fax. SETUP: So this was actually EASIER than the 3600. The whole unit only takes a few mins to get to the ink priming stage where its filling the internal non-user touched cartridges. They improved the ink bottle design as it used to just be a small opening that dripped some out, they now use a guided "key" type setup that releases once you fully set it down on the spot. This makes spills a thing of the past. Essentially remove the tape, plugin the unit, go through the On Screen Prompts, Fill the four ink tanks and let it prime for about 10mins as it gets ready. Then dump the remaining ink back in to replace what primed. Setup WiFi. Call it a day! Software was just as simple as you simply opened it, let it find your printer and go through your standard software installation. USE: So far we have printed a few hundred pages for Girl Scouts and my kids shool. Plus the one off coloring page for one of the younger kids. The thing is printing like a champ. It's clear, the ink isn't blowing through according to the software and visible actual ink tanks. The printer is fast to respond from sleep mode into actual printing. We have no regrets. I'd like to put this long "let me break it down", but ultimately you want it to do what you bought it for... printing! It does that, well and no signs of high ink use! So ultimately is it worth your purchase? If you BARELY print then you may want to look at some of Epson's more traditional printers. If you're printing fairly often, and in enough variety / use that you run the risk of a sudden cartridge depletion then THIS is that printer for you. I can't count how many times my old cartridge printers would suddenly break out the "you're out of X ink... replace to continue printing" just as I was printing holiday photo's, or important work documents. Now I don't worry because I know I've got a TON of ink, extra for refills and I can see when my reservoirs are getting low FAR before software would have told me last second! Also, comparing it to my 3600... the smaller form factor, sturdier design and front visible ink tanks are a perk for those who just have that "how's my ink!" need like me.

    No more ink cartridges to buy!

    I have been using this printer for the past couple of weeks as a replacement of an old Epson all-in-one which was on its last leg due to a lot of small business use over the past 2 years. In many ways it is a welcome replacement but it is not without some minor flaws/issues. Build: The build quality is pretty nice and doesn’t feel like a cheap piece of junk like many low cost printers are today. Its footprint is smaller than my previous all-in-one but stands taller so it would fit better in most spaces. Not much more I can say about it…it is a printer so looks is not really a major selling point. The biggest flaw with the build is unfortunately the touch screen. In a day in which touch screens are everywhere and have become bigger, the decision to go with such a small screen was definitely a big miss. The size of the screen made certain things very difficult to do especially trying to type in information or dialing numbers when faxing. It made it near impossible if your fingers are bigger than that of a child. Features: The biggest and best feature in my opinion is the ink tank. I can’t believe it took this long to come up with printers that don’t use tiny cartridges which need to be replaced so often if you do more than a few pages of printing a day. I guess it is because companies would rather make that inflated money that cartridges bring in. I really enjoy that there is enough ink in my printer for almost a year with a backup of another year of ink to replace that instead of having to order more ink every month. The other nice feature is the auto 2 page printing ability. It is very frustrating having to turn over the page each time you want to print double sided with some printers. This printer does it as easily as printing a one sided page. Use: Print quality is pretty much in line with most new ink jets out there. I didn’t see any issues and the printing was very quick. Copying pages was a little on the slow side for some reason but the copies came out very nice. It also has a very large document feeder for scanning and copying and a nice large paper tray so you can print all day without needing to refill paper. Conclusion: Most people will see this printer as an expensive one but fail to realize that most of the inexpensive ones are just a vehicle for making money on ink cartridges. In most cases they provide a starter ink set which runs out in just a few weeks and then you are spending $50+ on new ink which if you are dealing with small business type printing, will start to rack up the cost within a few month. This printer comes with 2 years of ink and refills are a fraction of the cost. The printer itself is a very nice for small business or active family use and has delivered very satisfactory results. However there are a few issues which detract from rating this printer higher, such as the ridiculously small touchscreen and the show copy/scan speed. This is a review for the Epson WorkForce ET-4750 EcoTank All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Dependable All In One Printer ET-4750

    The Epson Work force ET4750 is a very well designed, quality printer with copying, faxing and printing capabilities. Set up is fairly easy, the touch screen could be a little larger for people with vision problems. I love the eco tank ink idea which is very easy to fill, just follow the directions, put the correct colors in the corresponding ink places, it automatically stops when it is full and the gurgling noise stops. I love the idea that there is enough ink included for 2 years use and that the paper holder holds up to 250 sheets compared to other printers. The hardest thing for me was WIFI setup, it didn't set up from the enclosed software, I had to manually input the password from my router/modem, connect the printer then use the software to get it to set up correctly. Once setup the WIFI works flawlessly. Every test I did, everything worked well with no problems and good quality results. The quick setup instructions are a little backwards to me, paper should have been installed before the ink went in so you could print the test for proper ink installation.. Fax set up was easy and worked well when tested. Paper installation is very easy and the paper catch “drawer” pulls out easily and doesn't stick like others I have used. The size of this model is just right and not overbearing on a side table where I put it. I expect to get many years of use from this model and to save money on ink as well. This model is perfect for home use or possibly even office use. It doesn't take up a lot of space, is easy to use and does a great job. And with the eco tank ink you aren't having to replace ink all the time and with the large paper load capacity no reloading paper all the time either.

    Prints well, but....

    Bought this printer because of the ink tanks, and that is one of the Pro's for this printer. The other Pro is that it prints pictures very well and prints fairly quickly. The con's are the scanner is absolutely the worst scanner I've ever used. Even clear copies come out faded and sometimes parts of the document not there. The scanning software is horrendous, difficult to use and no clear directions on it. The auto feeder jams a quite often, and if one of your pages has a wrinkle in it, you can be assured that it will jam. Paper settings are ridiculous, i.e., you decide to print an envelope. Even if you go into the word, select print an envelope, change the settings in the printer properties software and try to print, forget it, you have to go to the printer and correct the error message that tells you that the print settings sent don't match the default of the printer, which do you want to use. I'm sorry, I just set all of those on the computer, why do I need to get up and cross the room to tell you that is what I want to use???? After you print the envelope, the next time you go to print, you will get the same error message again if you are trying to now print on regular paper because the last thing you printed was the envelope. I've always been a Canon printer person, but thought I would try this because of the ink tanks, so I am getting rid of this printer and trying the Canon Megatank printer. HOPEFULLY, that one will work better. Do yourself a favor, if you are looking for a printer that you will always be printing letters on, this will work fine, but if you go from different documents, to pictures, to envelopes, you will get your exercise going to the printer. Oh, and it doesn't want to work from my Iphone. It finds the printer and says that it is printing, but a little gremlin must be stealing the documents before I can get to the printer to get them.

    Fantastic printer!

    Setting up this printer is super easy. It comes with detailed, step-by-step instructions that make it simple for even the most novice computer/printer user. You unpack it (making sure to remove all the tape that provided support during transport & shipping), fill the ink slots with the included ink bottles, plug it in, and follow the on screen instructions to align things and finish setting it all up. It comes with a set-up disc as well as the link to download the software if you computer doesn't have a disc drive. I also set mine up to make use of the wireless printing from my phone, which was super easy as well. The apps that Epson has out to go with the wireless printing are a fantastic thing, too. Nice, easy, simple. Printing is easy, fast, and great quality. I printed many test documents, photos, etc. (wirelessly and through my phone for a good portion of them) and they all came out beautifully. There's almost no delay between sending the print command and actual printing. The one thing I will mention is that when I went to open the top up to put the ink into the printer, I thought I was going to break it. Also, when sliding the paper slide guards over, I thought I might break those. It's obvious after you move things around for the first time that it isn't going to break, they aren't flimsy by any means. It's just strong. Well made. It feels almost as if you are forcing something to move that you shouldn't. But, rest assured, it's not going to break as long as you follow the included set-up directions. My first thoughts when reading about the Epson WorkForce ET-4750 EcoTank All-in-One Printer were: (a) finally a printer that doesn't require a ton of waste from buying cartridges all the time, and (b) I wonder how messy filling the ink is going to be. The Epson WorkForce ET-4750 EcoTank All-in-One Printer comes with enough ink for "two years" and I don't doubt that statement for a minute. You'll use one set to set-up the printer and have another set for future use. I printed MANY things and barely touched the ink levels (which are very nicely displayed not only in the on screen display but also on the front of the printer itself. And it isn't messy at all! The bottles are very secure with a piece that fits onto the ink well before ink will flow and stops flowing when it is full. All-in-all, this is a fantastic all-in-one printer with a lot of added benefits that is well worth the cost. I highly recommend it.

    A step backwards for EPSON

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I bought the ET-4750 to replace a 6-year old EPSON WF-3540 inkjet, which worked well but I wanted to get something with a smaller footprint. Aside from the smaller footprint and better pricing on ink, however, it is an inferior product in multiple ways compared to the less advanced printer that it replaced. First, the color print quality is middling at best. Colors have a faded, washed out appearance and lack sharp definition along the edges, even at enhanced settings. My older, cartridge-based printer had MUCH better color print quality. That said, black text prints well. Second, the printer is incredibly noisy. When it starts printing it makes a grating, high-pitched sound. Though, that subsides a bit as it gets underway. Third, it takes super long to print on any of the enhanced quality settings; the printer seems starved for RAM or may have a very weak CPU. Fourth, it has no auto-duplexing, which my older, less advanced model had. Admittedly, I should have confirmed that feature before I bought it, but I had assumed that since this had an ADF, it would duplex too. Fifth, the user interface is a total joke. The on-device screen looks like something from the mid-1990s. EPSON needs more inventive software developers. Also, the touchscreen is too tiny to manipulate; it's very easy to accidentally hit the wrong area and be whisked away to a different screen. Sixth, in the ads, the colors in the storage tanks pop. Complete nonsense. When you fill them up, they all have the same black/gray appearance from outside. Not that that is a big deal from a product utility standpoint, but it was kind of a cool feature. Other than the cost-saving aspect of the ink, this printer is inferior in multiple ways to EPSON's older product. It feels like they cheaped out on all of the components except for the ink.

    Another great printer from the experts

    As someone who really likes electronics, opening up a new thing is always a treat. The box is laid out very simply, but with very nice explanations of the product's functions and capabilities right on the outside, so that you don't have to necessarily scour through the manual. The new way to put in the ink is very easy as long as you're paying attention. Simply load the ink from a bottle into a tank instead of having to plug in the cartridges. The tips of the bottle, along with the the way is plugs into the tank prevent over-filling and spillage. This printer holds quite a lot of paper for the size, at least 200 sheets. Setup took about 20 minutes, but that was mainly ink "charging" and software/driver setup, so it wasn't tedious at all. As convenient as wireless printing is, an included USB cable would have been nice for those who still print from a single device. For functionality, all aspects work just as expected. It's good to note that along with the computer, cellular device printing is possible with either Google cloud or the Epsom iPrint app. For standard printing, documents were received quickly and came out clear and dry (there's a setting for allowed ink dry time). Scanned documents uploaded clearly, even when tested with a couple of somewhat wrinkled papers. Photo printing on standard paper actually came out surprisingly well everything considered. I look forward to printing a photo on actual photo paper. Even on the standard printer paper, a full sized image wasn't washed out for color necessarily. It simply didn't have the shine as it would on glossy paper, which is to be expected. Double sided printing worked like a charm, without paper bleed-through. Not too fond of faxing at this point, but the fax function worked without an issue as well. It's nice to not have the whole phone setup on the printer. Last, but not least is the copier function. Three separate copies were made at varying levels of ink density. Each one came out with only minor brightness variations, but not so much that it was a bother. The copies were of a printed photo, so it's safe to say that text copies wouldn't be a problem at all. In all, this addition to Epson's line is just right for the home office, takin care of a decent workload for an individual or small group. It's a great beginner printer, but with enough power and functionality to please an advanced user as well. Definitely a must get!

    Amazing refill feature!

    Posted
    MattB

    The Epson - WorkForce EcoTank ET-4750 Wireless All-in-One Printer is something the consumer has been begging for for decades, finally a printer that is refillable easily by the user, we are finally untethered from using costly cartridges that most of the time either included a expensive print head or was sealed to prevent refilling. I have tried all the tricks to save money, the drill and fill kits, and the external reservoir which fed directly into the cartridges. None of the worked well or only worked well for a time before clogging or spilling. So I tried the EcoTank ET-4750, it is a step in the right direction but epson is still being greedy with the refill bottles, luckily there are generic fillers online for a fraction of cost. But I will continue to use official until the warranty is expired. The touch screen is useful but extremely small, I had to find a stylus to enter my wifi password, I didn't not have a chance to use the scanning feature since I have a dedicated epson document scanner that just scans better anyways. Pros: Ethernet and or Wireless Connection No costly ink cartridges Very high DPI Has a touch screen Duplex printing Relatively quiet when printing Cons: Refill bottles are still kinda expensive Touchscreen is very small Very Large and heavy In conclusion I would recommend this to anyone who is tired of costly ink carts and wasted money on bottom of the barrel inkjets, that also prints pictures so black and white laser is out of the question.

    Does what you need and more

    This printer out of the box was very easy to unpack and setup. It came in a box with Styrofoam inserts and was taped to keep everything secure. Due to the good packaging, there were no physical issues with the unit upon arrival. At first, I was a little worried about how well getting the ink into the reservoir would go. I feared it would spill all over while trying to pour it in. However, this was not the case as you simply just screw the cap off and stick the bottle in the correct opening. At which point the ink goes into the reservoir and once full stops. There were no issues with drips or leaks. After that the printer takes around 10 minutes to calibrate and adjust. I’m not sure if this happens only on the first fill up or after every fill up but it wasn’t a big deal. The rest of the setup was straight forward for items such as language, time zone, etc. The wireless set up was simple too. The touchscreen panel is a nice touch and more convenient than having to use arrows to type everything. The setup instructions were simple and to the point and more than enough to successfully setup the printer. I print a lot of shipping labels so I was interested to see how this printer would handle that since I use thicker paper. The Epson print app found the printer right away and I could print without issue. Even with the thicker paper I didn’t have any issues with jamming or paper feeding improperly. Speaking of paper, the tray is quite deep and can hold quite a bit of paper. It holds more than any other printer I have had. I also frequently scan items that I will be selling online. The scan feature worked without issue through the Epson app. There is also a copy feature on this printer which I don’t use as much but wanted to see how that performed. This was also very simple to do. The only feature that I didn’t really test was the fax feature as I don’t have a landline to fax over nor do I ever fax anyone. In the short time I have had this printer I have yet to encounter really any issues at all. It performs as advertised and assuming the ink lasts as long as advertised there really isn’t much downside to it. The initial price could be a deterrent to some but overtime the money you save on ink should more than make up for it.

    A Quality Unit With a Great Feature Set

    Posted
    hybridxer0

    I've had printers as long as computers, though the last few have been "All-in-ones". Why clutter your office/house with a scanner, a fax machine, and a printer, right? Let's start with this unit, the Epson ET-4750. The 4750 is a fantastic printer...for what it is/trying to achieve: the home/small office market. I had no issues out of the box, as the setup was easy and forthright. Print quality and speed were better than adequate, and I was a bit surprised considering this is not a “Photo” printer. So what do I like/dislike about the unit? Pros: - Each function (printing/scanning/faxing) of the unit is quick. - Duplex printing - ECOTank is a TERRIFIC replacement for standard ink cartridges. - Refill tanks for ink are machined so you can’t refill the wrong color - Ink tanks are displayed on the front of the unit to easily see where the levels are Cons: - Cost of unit is higher for the build/feature set compared to other brands. - LCD screen is a bit smaller than I would like and that makes accidental button presses more common. - No USB ports on the front of the unit. - WiFi is only on 2.4 GHz wireless band, with no support for 5 GHz. So, the real question: Would I recommend this product. The short answer is yes. A longer answer is still yes, though I would probably wait until the price point is lowered to match similarly spec’d units. The ECOTank is a nice touch and is a major selling point for this device.

    Don't run out of ink in the middle of a project!

    meherr

    The Epson WorkForce ER-4750 EcoTank All-in-One Printer comes with 2 sets of ink, 1 set for now and one for later. You fill the reservoirs yourself. It is shipped with enough ink for 2 years of printing (11,000 b/w or 8500 color pages (the equivalent of 50 ink cartridges). When I realized I had to fill the tanks myself, I was a little concerned that I would end up with ink everywhere – on my hands or, worse yet, on the carpet. I was pleasantly surprised…the process was extremely clean (not a drop of ink anywhere) and quite simple. Do follow the instructions closely, because there is a process – you fill the reservoirs, then prime the printer, and then fill them again and reset the levels. Epson has videos on their website to walk you through the process. I love that I can air print from my iPhone and android tablet. It has good wireless range – the printer is in the back of my house and I usually print from the other end of the house. Most of all, I love that it has the capability to print, copy, scan and fax double sided documents. It has a flatbed scanner and a document feed on the top. It is easy to scan to your computer or attach to an email – even double-sided documents. The calibration process is a tedious; following the instructions is key. It is a nice sized all-in-one and doesn’t have a large footprint. The touchscreen is intuitive - easy to navigate and set up functions. The initial cost ($499) was a shock, but remember, the printer comes with the equivalent of 50 ink cartridges. I’m excited that I won’t run out of ink in the middle of a project and have to run to town to buy new cartridges. The print quality is good – not great photo quality, but for my everyday regular use, is just fine. We also own a business and just prior to this, I purchased and installed another Epson printer (WF-4730). I have found that Epson offers excellent price, quality, and functionality. I was not terribly impressed with tech support (an out of the country call center), but thankfully I did not require any tech support in setting up the ER-4750. I will purchase the ER-4750 for our business when I need another printer – simply because of the tank style ink.
