    Workforce for your home office

    Posted
    SRizvi

    What attracted me to this printer is Epson's EcoTank line. The cost per page is much lower than printers I've purchased in the past, both laser and inkjet. With the Eco tank system, I won't need to search for a DIY/hack to refill proprietary printer cartridges that claim to be empty but are printing well after the "empty" warnings. The touchscreen on this device makes device setup and access to functionality very easy. Wifi setup was fast and the interface was simple. During initial setup, there may be some pumping sounds coming from the printer, but if that's what it takes to squeeze every last drop of ink out of the refillable cartridges, then I'm more than OK with that. The duplex printing capability is a real upgrade for the home office. Day to day utilization of this printer is great. The wireless printing function from Android mobile devices using the Epson iPrint app is more useful than one would think. Also adding this printer on several of our Windows 7 and 10 machines was straightforward and works exactly as expected. This printer is also capable of using cloud printing services and we never have to wonder if the cloud print was successful when you're away from the printer. Using Epson's glossy photo paper we are able print photos at home for around $0.16 per photo and have photos available immediately without having to wait for shipping. Scanning functionality is fast.

    I recently upgraded my printer for the eco-tank, hoping to not have to replace ink cartridges so often. I loved the ease of set up and so far the printer has worked flawlessly. I am a graduate student who has to print a lot of things. I am not disappointed so far.

    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's 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.

    Just as good as a Laser Printer

    I have always loved my brother MFC laser printer and the EcoTank comes very close! When I first received the package I taken back by the size and the weight of this, but excited at the same time. I quickly opened and unwrapped the printer like a kid on Xmas morning! The printer is pretty large but not bigger than your usual laser printers. The setup took about 10 minutes and was super easy. The entire setup is pretty self explanatory, but you can go through the software setup which guides you through everything. Using the printer was the real test. Although I like my laser printers, the inkjet quality always great! The only thing inkjet generally lack is that the ink either runs out too fast or dries if you do not use it. This is a fast printer and I would definitely recommend it. As far as the ink and the supply goes, it would need to be tested a little longer. I hope that it does not dry out if the printer is not used for a while. If the ink really does last 2 years then its definitely a keeper!

    Solid Business Class Printer

    Posted
    user8120

    This review is for the Epson WorkForce Pro ET-8700 EcoTank printer. EcoTank printers turn the traditional cheap printer with expensive ink business model upside down. This printer costs a fair amount up front, but ink refills should be less expensive per page than traditional ink printers. The ink packs are easy to install, just shake the packs a few times, remove them from the packaging, and snap into place in the printer. The high-capacity color ink packs that came with the printer are rated for 5,000 pages, while the extra-high capacity pack for black is rated for 10,000 pages. The printer comes with three packs of each type of color ink and two black packs. Setting up the unit was straightforward, but a little bit time consuming due to a large number of tape pieces securing the various components during shipment. The printer connected to my wireless network without problems. One nice thing about this model is that it can update its firmware via its menu system. It's a lot easier than downloading software to a PC and then uploading to the printer. The printer has a web interface that you can connect to with a browser on your network. The device appears to have a number of options related to device security, access control, LDAP integration, and many other settings that would be used in an office environment who needs more control over printer settings. Print quality seems decent and noise is reasonable for this type of printer. The printer also has a quiet mode for those needing it. Windows 10 was able to find the printer on the network and connect to it, however you can only access basic printer settings unless you download Epson's drivers instead of whatever is included with Windows. I've only had this printer for a few days, but my general impression is that this is a solidly built printer designed for an office environment.

    It's been a few months since my last printer review so Epson sent over the new Workforce Pro ET-8700 for me to review. This printer is a very similar to the Workforce 7710 but comes in a smaller form factor. Still the same bells and whistles with Color Printing, Scanning, Faxing and phot printing just in a nice boxy form factor. This printer seems like a great fit for smaller spaces where you need an all in one but don't want to take up a whole desk. This is tall and boxy. Set up is a breeze. Took a whole 5 minutes. The hardest part is tearing all the blue tape from it. They locked the printer down in every possible way with the tape to prevent any movement during shipping. The ink system is very different from anything I've seen prior though. these are like big ketchup packets that you put in drawers on the bottom of the printer. They are said to have about an 11,000 color page print count per set. The printer I received had 2 complete sets. This would most likely be more than enough for a years worth of printing for most home office.Initializing the system took a while but once it was ready, the remaining set up was super simple. Like the prior Epson printers I've reviewed, this one has a nice clear bright touchscreen on the front for set up. I chose to set up the system using Wifi but there was a connection for a hardwire if that was something you wanted to use.One of my favorite tests is to immediately print something from my iPhone. This is how I am going to be printing photos 90% of the time. Straight from the phone. Like all of the recent Epson printers, this one worked PERFECTLY!You can see the normal print wizard pop right up in IOS and the printer is found automagically and the print came out wonderfully. This was on normal printer paper but I am sure it would have been even nicer on glossy photo print paper. The whole print took just a few seconds to pop out. Super easy, quiet and good quality.I've been printing normal business documents with it throughout the day and it's fast and efficient. For my home office with moderate printing requirements, this is more than enough printer for me. The longevity of the printer ink will be something I will watch for but all in all, no issues at all with this printer from set up to printing.

    Great Printer with Endless Ink!

    The printer comes with 2+ years worth of ink, and provides a much larger tank for the basic black ink. No more painful ink cartridge or laser toner to go purchase and install every month! Setup was pretty easy once I got it out of the box and took off all the tape, definitely secure for shipping. Connected wirelessly to my laptop without any trouble and was printing minutes later. Once setup did everything I needed from scanning to the cloud (which was pretty convenient) along with faster printing speeds than my old laser printer. Overall very happy. No reservations, I recommend this printer for all small business or large office business needs. It will not disappoint.

    Great 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.

    Powerful and Easy to Use

    Posted
    StephDee

    The Epson ET-8700 EcoTank All-in-One-Printer is a very powerful and easy to use all in one printer. For my small office printing, copying, and faxing needs using a PC, Mac, and iPhone/iPad devices was a dream come true! I had no problem setting it up with my wireless network, iPhone or iPad. Instructions for basic set up were included with the unit, and an easy to use set up CD was also available to me. Basically with this unit, you will need to plug it in and only answer a few questions for basic set up, then you are good to go! The printer itself is very easy to use, the display screen provides simply icons that would be easy for those both technology savvy and those who are still struggling with new technology. The ink and paper were easy to load, and the print quality is amazing, printing multicolor flyers for events I never experienced any problems with the print quality my flyers looked like they came directly from the print shop. I would highly recommend this printer to anyone with a home office, or anyone who would like to print quality images at home rather than paying a print shop to do the work for you.

    Awesome Printer

    My family and I have been using this printer for about a week now and we LOVE IT! I downloaded the Epson iPrint app for android and printed everything from homework for my daughter to pictures that I put into frames and we could not be happier. The quality of the photo prints was amazing; as we used a premium photo paper and adjusted the quality of the printer inside of the mobile app. For the homework and math reviews that I printed using regular printer paper, there was no smudging or smearing. Additionally, the setup was extremely simple. The printer is touchscreen and when establishing your WiFi connection it even has a keyboard on the screen, thus making it that much easier to enter in your password. After setting up dozens of printers in my office over the years, I have grown accustomed to pressing the number keys multiple times to enter in each letter and the of course backspacing because I hit the number button too many times, or conversely not enough. It's crazy that this is the first printer that I have used to actually utilize a keyboard on the touchscreen itself to expedite the process. The ink packages are a wonderful addition too. They might be in a little bit larger packaging, but they offer a bag type system instead of the tiny little cartridges or the horrible toner cartridges that leak powder all over the place during installation and removal, thus allowing for more ink and less overall waste. This also allows you to print a lot more in between cartridge changes. We print a lot at my house and have gone through 2 reams of paper in a week, as my 7 year old prints whatever strikes her fancy; especially pictures to color and proudly display in her room and my fridge, and my bedroom, and my mother-in-law's room, and near the dog bowls, and the doors in my home...well you get the picture. Lastly, the scan quality is extremely good as well. After scanning in a few pictures and a lot of documents, I'm very pleased with its overall functionality, intuitiveness, and cost effective nature. I would be remiss if I did not tell you about it's faults though. It's OVER-PACKAGED. I pulled off and balled up about a 3" diameter of tape strips, as ever component is taped up to secure during transit. And...I think that is about it. Overall, you will be extremely happy with this printer; whether you are a small business owner or a busy family like me.

    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.

    Way Beyond My Expectations

    Posted
    bstiefel49

    Granted this review is based on a short amount of time spent with this all-in-one printer (5 days). but wow I'm really impressed! Let me start this right from the set up process because that can be a big obstacle for people, especially those not technically inclined and it becomes a major source of frustration, BEFORE you even get to the functionality. I use a printer for both work related and personal task and I've had printers that I liked a lot (eventually) but the set up was poorly done; complicated set up, poor directions, repeated steps, etc BUT NOT WITH THIS PRINTER! The set up was a breeze. I mean there is a lot of unpacking to be done but once all the tape and cardboard protection is removed the time I spent from placing the unit down to actual use wasn't more than 15 to 20 minutes if that. The simple start up directions were super clear and software install on my Mac took very little time. I must admit the part I was dreading was the Wi-Fi network set up because I think everyone will agree that not all Wi-Fi enabled devices "play nice" with your router and network set up. SO, it was with much trepidation that I went through the wireless setup, only to discover that my fears were for naught, as the process and connection could not have been easier. Ok, so with the unit set up, how does it print, scan, copy and fax? Well in a word, GREAT! Very impressed. Printing and copying in black and white (which I do mostly) is very fast and the printing is crisp with no smudging whatsoever, what you might expect from a high end printer like this (as good as the laser printer I just had) The color printing results however were astounding. Files printed clearly with vivid colors and detail. . and that was just on plain paper. The results on photo quality specialty papers blew me away. Also the printer has a very cool feature, a rear paper cassette (in addition to the main cassette) that holds special papers and sizes. So rather than having to remove plain paper and put in photo or specialty papers and sizes, you can load them in the rear cassette. For me, scanning is an important requirement, so I need an all-in-one unit to have the ability to easily scan many pages quickly with very good output quality. I can say that the 8700 more than meets that requirement along with a scanning interface that's simple to set up and use. As far as Faxing, I don't have a land-line and instead use a fax service, therefore I can't comment on the 8700"s Fax capabilities. But that said, the fax service does necessitate taking docs you want to fax and making scanned copies to your desktop which you then upload to the service and in that regard I go back to the units great scanning capability which results in very clear sent faxes. Finally, I'm new to the eco-tank concept as I had been using a laser printer. Quite frankly I was tired of replacing the ink cartridges so often so I wasn't keen on ink jet printers. . but the 8700 is very different. The 4 separate ink tanks were very easy to install and hold a huge amount of ink. Also, included with the printer were 3 ink tanks for each color; basically 2 extra ink tanks for each color! According to Epson that's enough to print 16,000 B&W pages and 12,000 color pages! YES you read that right, right out of the box the 8700 will print thousands of pages before replacement ink is necessary. As the statement below indicates, I was provided this printer free of charge to do a review, however having used it, if it hadn't been free, I would have bought it.

    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 wasn't 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.

    Epson Small to Large Office All in One -

    Posted
    JonnyBPrinting

    Epson 8700 Eco Tank review. My first impressions of the 8700 printer is that it is clearly a large office grade printer. From packing to assembly, this printer is built very well. The Main paper drawer "A", for example, is built better than allot of other laser printers I have installed recently for the company I work for. The only drawback in design of the paper handling would be the sheet feeder in back. It would be preferable to have the support handle a legal-size paper. Right now, it hangs over the edge of the printer. The other option would be to purchase the optional 500 sheet second tray which would be wise for a large office. Epson has done it again. I have an older model of Eco tank printer and the newly engineered ink pouches are both easier to install and do not require gloves. Once the pouches were installed, the charging time to fill the wells was half as long as earlier models. One of the first things I always check is the firmware version prior to installing any software on PCs or laptops. The WF-8700 allowed me to update the firmware from the general setting\system administration menu on the printer. The firmware update took 15 minutes and the printer re-started with no problems. Another thing I really like about this printer is the scan to network/email feature which allows users to scan to their email or to a network share. Both features worked seamlessly and to test I scanned a picture to the shared drive, loaded ultra-glossy 24-pound paper in the sheet feeder and printed the picture. Amazing quality. It worked just as well from the scan to email and then print. Besides regular printing, this is the biggest use of multi-function printers in the large office environment. Epson just plain gets it The 4.3 LCD is very user friendly. Just about anything you want to do with the printer is available through a few options one of the eight menu options. I did turn off the sound after rolling though the screens a few times. Overall, I would highly recommend this printer for the ease of setup, extremely fast, clear output and very solid design.

    Best Printer I've Owned. Seriously.

    Posted
    MakerMan

    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've 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.

    A little overwhelmed at first

    When I first received and unpacked the Epson ET-8700 EcoTank All-in-One Printer, I was a little overwhelmed with the amount of packaging. There was cardboard, plastic and little strips of blue tape everywhere and the box itself was about half the size of a refrigerator box. But after all of the unpacking, unwrapping and cleanup of a small mountain of packaging-trash, setting up the printer was rather simple. I just plugged it in, turned it on and installed the ink cartridges (or bags) into each of the ink trays. Connecting to my Wi-Fi was simple with the on-screen menu and registering the Epson ET-8700 EcoTank All-in-One Printer with Google's Cloud Print Service was easy with the included instructions. After tossing in a stack of two different sizes of paper, I was quickly printing emails, websites and photos from my Chromebook and even from my phone with very little effort or setup required. I haven't even begun to explore all of the functions that this "All-in-One Printer" offers. I'm just a cell phone user and don't have a home phone line so I skipped over the fax functions completely but it looked sufficient for any small (or medium) business office environment. The scanner and copy functions are just like having your own little Xerox machine and I was really impressed with the speed at which it cranks out color copies. I'm also impressed with the size and flexibility of the bypass try as it looks like you can cram virtually any size paper in there. I threw some photo paper in and was able to print some pretty nice 4X6 photos right from my phone. All-in-all it seems to be a pretty solid all-in-one printer for any home or small business environment and I'm looking forward to using it more over the next several weeks.

    I was very excited to try out this printer. The concept of an all-on one with EcoTank and top quality printing is something I have been looking for in my office. Setup was no problem (although I am not a novice), works throughout out my office, on all employee computers, no network issues. Also worked well from my iPhone. My first impression was wow, this printer is so fast, it nearly spits out the paper with beautiful color results. The scanner is clear and sharp and the display is user friendly with lots of options. After printing the first few tests I received an error, the front cover was indicated as open. I tried pushing it to close, and the small lock switch was on lock. I tried again and received the same error. I was able to hold the cover closed while printing to get the printing to work. It seems that the sensor on the front cover is defective and this same error comes on and off. Other than the cover glitch, the printer is amazing; fast, sharp and beautiful color with lots of features.

    Workhorse of a printer

    Initially I was reluctant to use this printer because I have always been a fan of HP printers but I think Epson has stepped it up with their Eco-Tank printers. Moving away from disposable ink cartridges is a huge reason that I was ecstatic to try out this printer. The size of the box and the printer may intimidate you at first but then this printer is for a midsize office rather than a one-person home office. Regardless of the size, the initial printer set up is a piece of cake but be sure to remove all the packaging material including the tape before you turn it on. With it's ability to hold multiple paper formats, the priniting is quick and crisp without any smudged ink. For copying and scanning, the document feeder works like a charm. You can also place the document directly on the flatbed for scan or copy. This is a workhorse of a printer that is suitable for medium sized office or if you do a great amount of printing or scanning, for your home office. It can also fax, though who in these days of email uses fax? Note that you will need to buy your USB cable if you choose to hook it up directly to your computer and a telephone cable if you want to use the fax. The printer comes with 2 years worth of ink with a much larger bottle and tank for the basic black ink. I think this is very helpful for a small to a medium office where the print ratio is skewed towards documents then pictures. The printer also comes with a separate tank an ink for a special photo black ink. This makes for much more vibrant pictures and I think its a great new feature that they are able to do with the Eco-Tank printer.

    The size of this printer and the features had me a little apprehensive about set up. I took it out of the box, removed the wrapping, and followed the instructions. I was set up and running in a matter of minutes. I really like the design of the ink pouches. No ink to spill or refill. The pouches are large and I expect the would last a long time. The printer even came with extra pouches. The print quality is amazing. The scanner is just as amazing. The printer operates fast! I love the touchscreen. The printer is so easy to use. The controls are intuitive and easy to navigate. Overall I would say the printer is a great value.
