    Great printer with lots of ink and paper capacity

    Posted
    Ggag

    I have used Epson Workforce Pro ET-8700 for almost a week now. My first impression of the printer has been really great. This printer is geared towards an office environment. The printer is cartridge free and comes with 2 years of ink in the box. Setup: Setting up the printer was a breeze. Initial set up required turning on the printer, installing the included ink packs and charging ink. The step that takes the longest time. I set up the printer to connect to the wireless network. The printer showed up on my Macbook air and I was able to add it without any issues. Everything worked flawlessly. Printing: Printing is extremely fast. I tried both text and full-page color photo, I was really impressed with the quality and speed of printing. I also have a laser printer, and the printing is faster than that. What makes me most happy about printing from the Epson printer is that the printer supports multiple options to connect, like Airprint for iPhone, Google Cloud print and NFC for Android device. I used the printer with my iPhone, I didn't have to download an app or do any setup. Once the printer was on my wireless network from the original setup, my phone saw it, and with just three taps it was printing. Scanning: The speed and quality of scan is great as well. I was able to scan page wirelessly without hiccups. The other features that I like about the printer are: 1.) it has two cassettes to hold tons of paper and different types of paper. 2.) The touch screen interface, it is very responsive and easy to use. 3.) Auto document feeder is great for a big job. 4.) The ability to print from an external USB device directly 5.) The Epson workforce pro all in one also has fax and copier functionality. With all the features, I can see this printer serving the needs of a home office or a small business. I am very satisfied with the product. 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.

    Solid Business Class Printer

    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.

    WOW!! its a BEAST of a printer!! Amazing!

    I personally own 3 Franchises and we do a lot of printing and I mean a lot!! Problem is most of the standard printers I would get would be slow, and I would burn through ink which gets expensive. So I got this Epson ET-8700 to try. This printer is an absolute beast of a printer. The size is great considering what It has to offer and for being a business class printer. Setup was an absolute snap and I was out of the box, setup, Wi-Fi configured and paper and ink loaded all under 15 minutes. The printer can hold over 250 sheets of paper and now lets talk about the best part the ink!! These printers can save you a ton of money on ink costs against standard printers. Inside the box its comes with 2 years of ink…let me say that again 2 years of ink which is amazing. According to the box that can equate to almost 16,000 pages to print. This was a huge selling point for me as we print multiple times a day. The Epson ET-8700 is fast as well and I was blown away at how quick it prints out the pages. The prints are clear, and the color is vivid. I setup the printer to work locally, and configured by wi-fi which is great for us when printing from other computers in the office, cell phones, iPad, or tablets. Also as a crystal clear 4.3 inch touch screen which helps make it easy to select what you want to do. This Epson ET-8700 is also great at scans and documents feed through the feeder. I have tried a lot of printers over my time but this Epson ET-8700 wins hands down its by far the best printer I have owned. Its well worth the investment especially for a business that does lots of printing and wants to save on ink costs!! Your investment will go far with this printer. I am a firm believer in you get what you paid for , and this printer is no exception. “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.”

    I received and set up my Epson ET-8700 EcoTank All-in-One printer about a week ago and have have been using it in my home office ever since. It replaced an Epson ET-3600 that I had been using for the past couple years. I had always used HP printers in my home office prior to these printers but had been having a lot of issues with them not lasting, having expensive ink and not really working when printing from my iPad and iPhone. The Epson printers have had none of these issues. I really am liking the ET-8700 compared to the 3600. The printer was extremely easy to set up – basically just take it out of the box, remove some tape, insert the ink and it is good to go. I really liked the change in ink from the squirt bottles on the 3600 to the bags on the ET-8700. It was much cleaner and easier to use. It was also great that it came with spare ink so I am not needing to go out and purchase replacements. This way I will order replacements when I use the included ones and always have a backup. Once it was physically set up, I ran the included setup disk first on my windows PC and then downloaded and ran the Mac installer on my Macbook – it connected to my network right away and I was using it on both devices in minutes. I love the automatic document feeder – this is a feature that I was sorely missing on my old printer. I also like how much paper it holds. This printer also has fax capability, which I only use a few times a year personally but it is something that my IT Consulting clients sometimes need and because of this I will be able to recommend this printer to them as well. This has been a solid printer and it has been working extremely well since I set it up.

    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 was not 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.

    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.

    Great Home Office Workhorse

    Posted
    Neilbrod

    I am a big fan of Epson printers and I was looking to replace/upgrade my existing Epson WF-2760 for my home office, and the Epson ET-8700 EcoTank All-in-One Printer is the ideal home office machine. As far as the machine itself, I am not going to lie, it is BIG. For me, I don’t have a true dedicated home office and it was too big to put on my desk so it sits on the floor next to my desk. It’s not a big deal and the fact that the touch screen flips up makes it easy to operate the controls without having to get on your hands and knees. Also, the features that come with the bigger size more than compensate for it. Set up was extremely easy. I would say that it took about 40 minutes with 30 of it spend unboxing, removing all the packaging and disposing of the trash. The actual installation itself probably took about 7-10 minutes max. The directions were extremely easy to follow and I was able to set it up wirelessly without having to use the included cd. The main selling point for me is the 2 year supply of ink that it comes with. With my old Epson I was constantly having to change the inks which was extremely expensive and I always needed to have extra ink on hand just in case. With the two year supply of ink, the printer virtually pays for itself in ink savings alone. I also love the high capacity paper tray and the ability to print 2 sided documents. The printer is extremely quiet and very fast. The output is very high quality. Overall, I highly recommend the Epson ET-8700 EcoTank All-in-One Printer as a home office workhorse. As a high volume document printer, this fits all my needs! 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.

    Great Printer for small and medium sized business

    Boy is this thing a BEAST! Truly an office printer in every shape and form. It is designed to be a daily printer and scanner and with it's 2 paper trays and scanning tray up top. I love the fact that I can just put a stack of documents on top, us the huge touch screen on the front to scan copy or fax the documents and do it in an amazingly fast amount of time. Also, the automatic double sided printing is a VERY nice feature to have that is not available on all that many printers. The speed at which this printer can scan and print documents is outstanding. I am thoroughly impressed every time I go to use it. There are two stand out features for me: Eco Tank and Wireless printing: One of the biggest annoyances with printers I have had in the past is the fact that they always came with "starter" ink. After a month or so of printing it was time to buy ink again. No more with this printer it comes with SO MUCH ink. 2 years worth is no lie....you would really have to work hard to use it all in less time. Wireless printing just makes it so easy to connect from any networked device to print to this printer. Laptops, Smartphones, tablets, everything can just easily print to this printer! All in all I am extremely impressed with this printer. It is a solid printer for anyone, but can really handle the every day usage that offices/small businesses would have. This will be used in my home office for years to come. 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

    Workforce for your home office

    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.

    For the past 5 years we have been using a Brother Multifunction color laser printer which I thought was an very nice machine. The Epson ET-8700 is in a league with the highest quality laser printer with black and white copies at 24ppm and color at the same 24 ppm with color printing of photos etc being much higher quality than a laser printer. Very impressive color reproduction. The Epson ET-8700 is a bargain when it comes to ink, you get 2 years supply of black and one year of each of th.e 3 colors so you won't be spending a fortune on ink, The Epson ET-8700 was easy to connect to our wifi network, less than 10 minutes to up and running. The machine takes up a corner of my desk, lt's large with a small footprint. It does weigh about 40 pounds, so you will need help to move it. The ET-8700 has a color touch screen that tilts which is convenient. There are a host of settings so you can have total control of the printer. There are 2 paper trays, one in the front which holds 250 sheets and a rear tray that holds 80 sheets so less time loading paper. I scan a lot of documents and the quality and speed is amazing. The Epson ET-8700 is truly a workhorse for the small to medium office and I highly recommend this to anyone who wants the best.

    “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.” I am really impressed with this printer. It was very easy to set up using the wizard once you get all the tape off. Seriously, there is a lot of tape. The wizard walks you through everything from page setup to fax header. The ink takes some getting use to since it is in pouches instead of cartridges. My first reaction after a print was literally, "Wow. That was fast." I mean it was done before I could even turn around to get the page. Seriously, I have never had a printer that prints this fast. I have alreay used it for b&w prints, color prints and multiple faxes. And for the first time I have scanned to email, which never worked on my past AIO. I like that it has its own email address to so I could send something to the machine from anywhere in the world. The only problem I have had is the first few pages came out crooked, but that has seemed to resolve itself. The web interface and software are not as clean. I would expect them to be, but you can still navigate pretty easily and the funtionality is there. Overall this is a very funtional and comprehensive printer/fax/scanner/copier. I would definitely recommend it for a small office or home use. I'm sure I will use it for years to come.

    Best Printer for a Home Office - Forget Laser

    Posted
    JohnDoe

    I have a home-office and go to my corporate office a couple of times in a month. In the past, whenever, I visited the corporate office, I would make a list of non-standard ( 8.5"x11") documents that I may have to scan ( especially legal documents), as I didn't feel comfortable scanning at local pack and ship stores. I have used a couple of Epson Eco Tank products over the last 2 years or so, this model finally meets some of my requirements, which other were failing to meet. I have several documents which are sized A4, which is slightly boarder than Letter and most printers seem to be limited to either letter or at-time legal. I find the ability to scan and print A4 to be a welcome surprise. The physical size of the printer is not to large, and the scanning was smooth. With respect to scanning and printing, I found the software to be extremely helpful, and found the WIFI performance to beat my expectations. I would have personally preferred that the WIFI network connection work directly over 5GHz too, however, this is a minor inconvenience, and most routers are compatible to 2.4 GHz. The option to use NFC printing and Google Cloud Print are great, and the same are just as equally helpful for scanning.

    Epson's WorkForce Pro ET-8700 EcoTank All-in-One Supertank Printer is a top-of-the-line machine in a series of small business printers designed to give laser printers a serious run for their money. And with fast print speeds, high-quality output and the amazing EcoTank ink system, Epson's printer should easily meet the demands that any small office can throw at it. All of the stand-alone operations on this beast are handled through the 4.3-inch color touch screen. The menus are easy to navigate and intuitive. There is also numeric keypad, which is handy for stand-alone faxing. The ET-8700 prints sharp text on plain paper, practically laser quality. Text looked noticeably crisp, sleek and dark, on a par with what I'd expect from a quality laser printer. Graphics also printed very attractively on Epson's printer, with sharp details, accurate colors and nice mid-tone gradations. Glossy photos printed onto glossy photo paper looked very detailed, and colors were pleasantly saturated. All-in-all this office powerhouse is a joy to use, a reliable companion, and with it's ink system and multiple paper trays, its super easy to maintain. 2 thumbs up from me!

    Powerful and Easy to Use

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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 have 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.

    Shiny Super Printer

    jackyboi57

    Epson makes a fantastic and sleek printer. So far I've noticed the machine itself, I am not going to lie, it is 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.

    Amazing Quality and Functionality

    Posted
    WorkerBee

    Epson ET-8700 EcoTank All- in-One-Printer I am so amazed using this printer. I thought it would be larger, but it is perfect for my office. It is a great printer. Scanning, faxing and copying are all built into one printer. Extremely fast. Having ink tanks that last 2 years or more is the best. I can print up to 16,000 pages with the cartridges. This printer is efficient and saves me money on ink. ENERGY STAR qualified. Epson has an environmental site I highly recommend, www.epson.com/environment. A CD was included to understand set up. Self-explanatory. There are four ink packs, black, cyan, magenta and yellow. They are self-contained. You place them into the bottom reservoir trays. It takes 7 minutes for them to charge before you can print your first copy. This printer is extremely quiet. It has a large capacity paper tray. Very happy. 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.

    I would recommend this to a friend
