    Fantastic all in one printer

    This printer is an all in one printer (eg: Scan, Copy, and Print) During my testing, I have done several things: 1. Basic unboxing. 2. Basic configuration. 3. Advanced configuration. 4. Tests. 5. Pro's and Con's. 1. Unboxing: The printer arrived extremely well secured in its own vary vivid box, the box is rather big since the printer by itself is massive. The box is very colorful and have a visual representation of most of the printer settings, Such as Wi-Fi-Direct, Apps, Print specs etc. This is a good indication for all the options available for the user, and visually appealing. The printer was very secure within the main box and should "survive" common shipping providers driving conditions. In addition, Epson secured the printer itself by using easily removable tapes on almost every corner and attachment. The ink cartridges were also airtight sealed, which was great so there was no chance of leakage. From "boxing" perspective, this was great outcome. 2. Basic configuration: There were a few options for this specific model WF-7720: 1. Go to the website and download the utilities. 2. Plug via USB and let your computer recognize. (I used windows 10, which automatically grabbed appropriate drivers [not utilities]) Luckily, this printer support either Wi-Fi or Ethernet. I personally Prefer Ethernet, Ethernet will always be more reliable, less interferences and more secure. Important to mention, that there are no added cables in the box other then the power cable, so no USB cable. That to me was a negative star; Also there was no installation Disk. Once you install the basic drivers and utilities, the printer can now print with no issues. Basic configuration was extremely user friendly and takes about 6 minutes after you install the cartridges. With the software you can set it up either via the computer screen or even directly via the very nice built in large capacitive touch screen. The basics are: Network configuration, Printer configuration and account configuration. Installing the ink was a breeze, i just wished the ink cartridges were bigger. 3. Advanced configuration: This section I can write about for hours, so I will do my best to condense the information in laymen terms. This printer, being a network printer have also its own configuration web-page. Once you set the printer onto your network go to its IP (internal IP) on your browser and immediately you will get into the configuration page. Now, on the top you will see a drop down menu where you can then select from "Basic Settings" to "Advanced Settings". I HIGHLY recommend doing so, and the FIRST thing I recommend is to go to Administrator Login and change the password. Epson ship out the printer with no password (blank). As mentioned, now that you are an administrator you can change every aspect of the printer, any config and every setting which is fantastic. I will not go over every single option, since you can check it out for yourself. In order to fully utilize the printer you will want to utilize the advances config for "Google Cloud Print/Drobox scan integration" etc. You can by simply creating an account with EpsonConnect and follow all the instructions. It will make it much easier if you do so via the printer webpage as i described above. 4. Tests: I have done multiple test with this printer, one cool thing about this printer that it has a gorgeous big touch screen and dedicated buttons for multiple functions, very impressive. Ink tanks look good and Print quality was fantastic. I tested scanning, no issues. Tested A3 size print, the printer does not fail. it has 2 paper trays that you can specifically configure each tray to specific paper size. It truly give you an office quality style printer feeling. 5. Pro's and Con's. Pros: *. Multiple features: Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, Card Reader, Cloud Support, big pages print, laser like quality, Scan, Copy, Print, Fax, NFC, etc. *. Well-built and sturdy, really good build quality. *. Great Packaging. *. Good software utilities. *. Epson fantastic 2 year’s warranty. *. Outstanding "Cloud" Support and feature. (Remote print, remote scan, email to print etc). *. Massive paper size and no borders. Cons: *. No USB cable. *. Not EcoTank "This is a review for the Epson WorkForce WF-7720 Wide Format All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review."

    Versatile All in One

    I’ve been quite impressed by this printer so far. I own an old all in one laser printer with similar functionality but it’s only a black and white printer. So far this Epson Workforce printer has proven to be more capable and able to handle all of my business needs. Let’s start with my first impression. If you’ve never owned a “full” size home office/business printer, be ready for it. It is a large printer, albeit not quite as large as a floor standing print shot printer but very comparable in capabilities. In its box it’s a sizeable printer, I had helped unboxing the printer and although it’s not too heavy it’s somewhat not evenly weighted so be sure to have a grip on all four sides when you take it out of the box the first time. Setting it up is quite a breeze, overall with installing the software, charging the ink, etc I’d say it took about 10+ mins. This was made possible, even with connecting to my wifi, by the large touch screen. I think this is one of the main functionality that I like the most. I’ve owned other printers as well with a touch screen but to interact with it, you’d have to use a bunch of dedicated buttons (arrows, OK, cancel). Having a very responsive touch screen is a welcomed feature. Some other features that I really like about this printer is the double paper load tray, definitely nice to be able to load up for all my printing needs. The auto feeder tray on the top is also great when I’m faxing and scanning multiple documents at once. I’ve had to fax over a signed document once and believe me without the auto paper load tray on the top, it could be a pain. Another nice feature that really differentiates this printer is the larger scan glass that is capable of handling an A3+ size. My other laser all in one cannot do this and it’s a nice touch and there were many instances where I’d have to go to a pro print shop to do this simple task of scanning an A3 size document. All in all this is a very capable printer, perfect for my home office it has a few functionality which I haven’t tried yet but will try in the coming weeks, such as being able to print remotely to the printer via email. Not sure when I’d need to do that but I suppose it’s a nice feature to have. If I can pick one item that I’m concerned about this printer that would be the ink refills of course. It looks like it comes with the initial ink cartridges which typically doesn’t last that long. Researching online, it seems like they have bundles that you can get, so that will help and they have an XL black ink that is not too horribly price. I guess I’ll have to see how often I’d need to refill the ink with this printer. What would be ideal is if EPSON can produce an all in one workforce printer that’s combined with their new ink cartridges that could last 2+ years. That would be the ultimate printer I’d like to own.

    Great printer

    Posted

    I was very lucky to receive the Epson WorkForce WF-7720 for free as a beta tester and have had the opportunity to test it for about four weeks now. Overall, it has been a great experience using this printer. The first thing you'll need to know about it is that it is HUGE. The dimensions are 22.3 x 17.8 x 16.5 inches, so you'll definitely want to plan on having a small table or a significant desk surface to place this on. You'll also need to have two people to help lift the printer out of the box as shown when you first open it; the handles on the sides make it very easy to lift out, though. The manufacturers placed the directions right as you open the box so they are really easy to find; it comes with a quick reference sheet, a smaller packet of directions, and a CD with the printer software (also available on the Epson website for easy download - the quick reference sheet lists the exact web address to make it easy to find online). I liked that the ink arrived vacuum-packed for freshness/stability, and was also very easy to find upon opening the printer box. The directions were very well-written and easy to follow. I was able to get the printer set up very quickly using the quick reference sheet, and I am not a very printer-savvy person, so I think anyone could do it. (For best results, be sure to read all of the instructions in each green numbered section before beginning that section.) I liked that there was only one wire to attach! The appearance this machine is beautiful, black, and very streamlined. The touch screen is beautiful and allows you to select date and time formatting preferences, a nice little perk! It also comes with two easy-to-use cassettes for loading paper. The cassettes have sliders/guide rules and marks on them which make it very easy to load any type of paper you want. The printer can print on any type of paper (even a ream of cheap copy paper like the one I had on hand), but I would say that you'll probably get the best quality on Epson Bright White paper. The test print page had a tiny smear/blur at the bottom, but this basically resolved when I printed the second page, and I did not see this again on any other files I printed. I think if I had used the Epson Bright White paper I might have gotten the best quality from the get-go. I did purchase Epson Premium Photo Paper Glossy to print some photos from the printer; the pictures came out beautifully, even sharper than what I could see on my laptop screen! Ink and paper are reasonably priced; I like how Epson gives you the option of buying the basic ink (standard black) for $19.99 and color 3-pack for $36.19 if you are strapped for cash, but you can also purchase the same products in high capacity and even extra-high capacity if you want to invest a little more money. This is advertised as a Wide-Format Business Printing machine, but I really like how little touches like that make it more accessible for an average family to use. Another great thing about this printer is that it prints very quickly, and the output tray catches the printed paper very nicely without getting stuck or in the way of the cassettes. I also love how the printer displays the name and source of the file on the touch screen when printing; this makes it so much easier to know whether the correct file is being printed. It is also Energy Star certified and overall just a really well-thought-out and designed machine. Although the printer was easy to set up and the software was very easy to download, I had a little bit of trouble getting my computer and printer to connect over WiFi. After the WiFi AutoConnect failed, a screen appeared on my computer with a series of troubleshooting steps for me to take on the touch screen of the printer; I really like this feature, as often software programs do not offer specific guidance as to exact steps to take in case of failure; however, the steps recommended did not lead to my computer and printer being able to connect over WiFi. Instead of the steps currently provided, I would include the steps users would need to take to help their printer locate their home network connection by pressing Settings -> General -> Network Settings -> WiFi Setup -> Router -> Network on the touch screen, and then selecting their home wireless network from the list displayed on the touch screen and entering their network password to allow the printer to connect to the network. After completing this step, my computer was able to find and connect to the printer. Overall, I would recommend this printer for small business or family use, especially if you plan on printing photographs from home. The high capacity of the printer would make it a great choice for a small business, but the way Epson breaks down the cost of paper and cartridges, it could work for a family, as well, especially if you have the opportunity to buy it at a discount.

    Excellent Printer!

    The first thing I have to note is this printer is fairly large. That being said, Epson most definitely checked all the boxes when they packaged this beast. I'm pretty sure I spent a full 20 minutes double-checking to make sure that I had removed every securing tape on all of the components. The contents of the box held the printer, and a package that included the installation disk, instructions, and a power cord. As I was looking over all the features, prior to even plugging in the power cord, I noticed that it does have ports for usb, ethernet, and fax line plug. I was slightly disappointed that it did not come with its own dedicated usb cord, but that isn't a deal breaker as I have several around the house that I could use. After plugging in the power cord and turning on the printer, I was in awe of the large touchscreen! You can either leave the touch screen down, or you can pull it up so when you stand over it, you can see it clearly without having to bend over. A fact that my back surely appreciates! The menu is very user-friendly, it really was a breeze to connect to my home wifi. It also has a pretty good range, considering that my router is located on the furthest wall of another room, and it shows full bars. It also has sounds that can easily be turned off if you're not into that sort of thing. After I had connected the printer to my wifi, I opened my laptop (the computer I use most often), and put in the installation disk. For some reason, the disk would not auto-load like most other installation cds I have used, but it wasn't difficult to open the folder and select the installation file. At that point, everything else loaded seamlessly. Upon checking for updates, there was already one, so I chose to update now, and after about 20 minutes installation of the software and drivers was complete and I was test printing! Printing was pretty quiet, which I certainly appreciate. I do most of my printing during my child's naptime, so I am happy knowing that when I do, there are no loud sounds of pulling the paper, or printing that will wake her up (like my other printer does). I loaded the top drawer with 4x6" photo paper, to test print some photos. While this isn't a photo-specific printer, it is the first test I do on any printer, for print quality. I use a lot of waterslide printing paper for my at home hobby, and like to know that the print quality for images will be good. I did read in the instructions that you are only to use the top tray for specialty papers, which is perfect so that I can keep regular printer paper in the bottom at all times. I have not printed any large photos or posters at the moment, but that will be next on my list! I did, however, also scan and copy some documents, as well as saved them to my computer for emailing at a later date. After doing test prints on my laptop, I decided to download the epson iprint app on my ios devices. The app is also very user-friendly, clean to read and easy to use from both my ipad pro and my iphone. I was able to select photos and documents and print them with the touch of a button. I used my phone to take a picture of one of my children, and immediately printed the photo out. That took a total of approx. 5 minutes from taking the photo, to uploading it into the app, making sure the auto correct was where I wanted it, and printing the photo. I was able to pick up the pictures immediately with no issues with wet ink. Overall, I would highly recommend this printer to anyone who is considering it. While I know there are other features that I have not had the opportunity to try on it yet, I am confident that with the ease of use of all of the other functions that I have been able to try out, as well as the clarity of the menu and function buttons, that using the other features will be just as easy. I have owned 2 other epson workforce printers, previously, and this one is by far the best out of them. Great product, Epson!

    Installation was murder, but printer prints great

    Posted
    Highiron

    I've never had as much trouble installing a printer on any PC I've ever owned than I did with this Epson WF-7720. There must have been 20 pieces of blue packaging tape to remove. Three hours later, when I began having trouble with the printer not printing, I rechecked everywhere to make sure I didn't miss a piece of tape. The ink cartridges are supposed to click into position. Well, there was no click. I guess they're secured. I tried twice to do the Wi-Fi installation, and it hung up both times in the process where it was trying to add the printer to my Wi-Fi network. It never gave me any indication about needing the Wi-Fi name or password, just that it had gotten a page error in a non-page area or something. It stated it would reboot my PC automatically, but instead it just sat there for 25 minutes locking up my PC. I had to kill the PC session. It must have messed up stuff, because the PC took a long time rebooting both times. I couldn't find the master uninstall EXE anywhere on the Epsom CD, so before I could try the install again, I had to manually uninstall about a dozen different things that the install process added. I then tried to go online and chat with an Epson support tech, but Epson doesn't have such online personnel—only by phone during business hours. So that was a wasted 45 minutes. On the third installation, I decided to install it using a USB cable. That seemed to go okay, but then the printer wouldn't print anything—neither the test page, nor an image file. I tried turning the printer off and on. Nothing. It just kept asking me to select paper type, etc. Finally, on about the third time I turned the printer off and on, it started printing out everything. The cancel button only cancels an individual job. There is no master cancel, so I wasted a lot of paper. Must have had queued print jobs from all three install attempts. This was one miserable 5 hours. Maybe I'll learn to like this printer/scanner/fax eventually, but right now, my mental outlook on the thing is very discouraging. In the end, the pages printed were great quality, but I will think twice before buying an Epson product again.

    Outstanding Printer

    This Epson WF-7720 has been outstanding. First, I will say that the staff at our local Best Buy were very knowledgeable, patient and helpful in assisting me with my questions pertaining to a few models I was considering. For background, I had owned an Epson many years ago, but was currently an HP AIO owner. Despite the few HP quirks, it lasted us almost 9 years but suddenly gave up the ghost. A proper burial was offered by Epson in providing a $50 Recycle Incentive toward the purchase of the WF-7720! It was already $100 off the regular price of $299, so that made it $149! And, needing to dispose of the HP body, the fact that the WF-7720 had double the paper capacity and a super-large scan area compared to its competitor – the HP-8720, my decision became clear as to the best value of cost and capability. May the HP RIP. From unboxing to setup to final page printout, this machine is a pure breeze. Follow the directions and you won’t go wrong. Additionally, my wife and I needed the capability to print from our phones, and the Epson iPrint Apps (mentioned in the packaged documentation; the WF-7720 Support page at Epson.com and the Google App Play Store). This product and its supporting Apps were super easy to set up and operate on all our platforms, including our Samsung Galaxy phones. Ink cartridges are no more/less than other comparative models, and the print performance of this machine is crisp and clean. I am very happy with it. The software interface for the Printer Settings is found by right-clicking the icon (in Taskbar for Win 10 Home). Support from the Epson website covers all that’s needed for the printer. I will say that I wish there was the Diagnostic Software tool that HP had with my previous printer, but it appears everything that’s needed can be found through the Icon Settings and Epson Online. I have tested each feature (including the Phone Apps) of this product and they perform flawlessly. Prints are superb and completed in the time expected. We are very satisfied with this product! This is an outstanding printer for our Home/Office needs.

    It Gets The Job Done

    This printer is awesome! If you’re looking to do large jobs, wanting the option of two trays with different paper sizes, with the luxury of being able to print 13“ x 19“, then this is the printer for you! I will say that the speed of this printer is not as fast as your normal home printer, however, it is able to handle multi-printing jobs. I’ve printed an upwards of 100 to 200 documents in one session; double sided. The one thing you must keep in mind is that this is an inkjet printer. So what does that mean? That means the printer and the replacement ink cartridges itself, are much cheaper than a laser printer. This also means that usually photos are considered to print out better on an inkjet printer than a laser printer. However, in my past experience, I’ve found that laser printers do actually print out photos quite nicely; and colors are more vibrant, richer, and sometimes more deep in tones and shadows than a inkjet printer. I normally use the printer to print out full-color bulletins, and have noticed a huge difference in color with this printer versus a laser printer. There were times that I have attempted to increase the saturation in color of some of my print outs on the computer, and the color saturation is marginally increases on this printer versus the deep saturation you would get of a laser printer. On a laser printer, you’ll get better results in achieving a royal blue, or even a bright red color than you would on this printer. If you’re like me, and you’re used to printing from a laser printer, you might find yourself a little disappointed with an inkjet printer. This is true for any inkjet printer that you choose. The only reason I chose this printer over a laser printer is because of cost effectiveness. Although nice coloring and saturation would look great, for my purpose of our bulletin, it’s more for informational purposes rather than being treated like a magazine. Since we print out about 100 bulletins a month, choosing an inkjet printer, for now, would be the best choice for cost-effectiveness over a laser printer. Overall, this is a great printer for what it is meant to do. I can’t really ding it for not being able to print out as high of a color saturation than a laser printer, because they are both in two different categories. A few things that I do enjoy is the ability to wirelessly print and create its own email address. Which means that I can send documents, photos, or forward emails to this printer’s own email address (which you create yourself), and it will print it out from anywhere in the world. Of course, the printer needs to be connected to our home Wi-Fi and left turn on throughout the day. But it does not consume much energy if you decide to leave it on. There is a sleep mode, which will put it into a low power mode or standby mode if you will, ready for when there is a printing job.

    Great for small or home based offices

    This printer can definitely handle all my small business needs and then some. I work in a small office of about 5 people full time and also have a design and direct sales business on the side. We were using an office laser printer until I brought this one to work and it has saved us so much time and energy. I really love the scanning. I am able to scan using the software on my computer and adjust the settings for the documents I am going to scan in. We have a variety of skill level of users when it comes to technology (I am advanced while the others range from novice to medium skill). I find the app really easy to use while the others prefer to scan directly from the printer touch screen. I have used both and gotten great results either way. We are able to scan in documents that are two sided using the auto document feeder by setting either on the printer or the scan program and the printer does the rest. It also scans in larger documents with the auto document feeder for those occasions when we have larger than legal size receipts. I am able to print high quality full color documents up to size 13”x19” which helps me since I design fliers and documents for display in our office or for my direct sales business. I really love designing myself and while I was worried about print quality since this is an office and not a photo printer specifically it performed just as well as my dedicated photo printer. It does not have a lot of presets for Super B size paper other than about 4 types of glossy and 1 matte, but my design printed full color beautifully on the luster paper using the semi-gloss paper setting. The colors in the design matched perfectly to what I saw on screen. It has two paper cassette trays along with a rear paper feeder which works well for larger size papers. This printer has a button on the front for paper setting so you can tell it what kind of paper you have in each cassette for quick printing. I am impressed that it prints quickly even when set to two sided and full color. I am able to print documents to the printer from anywhere with the Epson connect by emailing the documents to the printers’ e-mail address. It works great and I use this feature at least 3-4x a week. Printing wirelessly from the app is simple and easy to use since we do have two employees that travel a lot and also use tablets to produce documents that are only available in app form. They are able to use the Epson connect as well as the Epson IPrint app from the office to scan and print from their mobile devices. Faxing directly from the device is simple as well with an address book that we can program our fax numbers and names making it easy for both advanced and novice users to find what they are looking for and send it by putting the document in the auto document feeder or the scanner bed. Faxing also allows for two sided scanning using the auto document feeder and will print a report if the fax does not go through for whatever reason.

    Excellent All-in-One Inkjet Printer

    Posted
    Chantill0308

    I have been using the Epson WorkForce WF-7720 for a few weeks now and I have had no problems with it and it has met and exceeded any of my expectations since it has arrived. When I first got the printer I was impressed with the size of the All-in-One Printer. I knew it was going to be able the handle the jobs of printing, copying, scanning and sending a fax. It is quick and easy to set up to get ready to use for the first time. It has step-by-step instructions and a CD to install your software on your computer. The big LED screen helps you walk through the process too, so there is no confusion. The control panel is easy to use and walks you through what operation you are choosing to do at that time. After setting up the time and language you then insert the ink cartridges to charge a few minutes and you are ready to print. The whole process takes 10-15 minutes. I like the fact that this particular printer has dual front loading paper trays that you can use standard and legal size paper, labels and envelopes. The trays have adjustable sliders to fit most any size paper you will need to use. It has a back loader feeder tray that is a great option to have too. The qualities of the copies are bright, crisp and professional looking. The colors are amazing and there are no lines or smudging when printing in color. The printer can be hard-wired or used with Wi-Fi. We set our printer up using Wi-Fi and are able to use the printer from our laptops, tablets and phones. There is a port for your phone line for the fax line to be added. Over-all I am impressed with what the WorkForce WF-7220 has done for me and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an All-In-One printer. “This is a review for the Epson WorkForce WF-7720 Wide Format All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.”

    Excellent value

    As a graphic designer, this large-scale printer has been on my wish-list (yet out of my price range) for years. My first thought when it arrived was, "wow, this is big", but that is the best part of it - I NEED it big to print spreads and enlargements, so I figure it's supposed to be large. The nice thing is, after unboxing and setting it up, it doesn't FEEL like it's a low-end printer, the price point actually seems low for this unit (not that users will mind that!). It's very solid, and I'm impressed with the quality of this unit compared to other printers I've had - even some more expensive ones. It even LOOKS nice. The setup was very easy, the first thing I did was connect it to my wifi network via the wizard installer, and that was a breeze. I did not use the disc (included), because I prefer getting the absolutely latest software from the manufacturer site, but that was very easy to find and install with no effort at all. Pleasantly surprised. (this process has come a LONG way since the printers of a few years ago.) The front trays are both flush with the front of the printer, but the bottom one will extend out to the front for the larger paper sizes, if you choose to keep that paper stored in tray 2. There is also a back-feeding tray for photos, which is nice, and means you can essentially have 3 different sizes and types of documents loaded and ready at all times - no need to swap paper out of the trays. The capacity of the trays are all significant, and the ADF is more than sufficient at 35 pages. I was impressed with the speed, yes it does take longer to print an 11x17 sheet of paper than letter size, but that's to be expected. It's 2x the size, afterall. No complaints here with that. The scanning speed was good, and I am excited about the prospect of being able to scan full spreads of larger documents and books - something that I've wanted for ages! The touchscreen is large and easy to read, the only nit-picky thing I should mention is a few of the icons were not intuitive, but once I played around with it for awhile, it all made sense. Printing from a PC laptop (even 4 rooms away), an ipad, and an android phone was super simple. Since I already have a different model of Epson printer, the Epson iPrint app for smartphones was already on my phone, so it found the new printer and just added it to the list of available printers. Sweet! I do think this is an excellent quality printer, and the price is right. It feels like a great value for what you're getting. Granted, I don't NEED to scan or print tabloid documents all the time, but the fact that I can when I need to, (and won't need to change paper in the trays often) makes this a huge benefit for me.

    Easiest Professional Grade Printer to Use

    Posted
    Skyline521

    First off, I’ll start by saying I was a longtime Lexmark and HP printer user. Their products have always been the most difficult to setup, use by every member in my network, and not that affordable on ink (bad paper count to ink ratio). I’ll begin this review with the ease of setup and usability of the 7720. It is extremely easy to setup and to connect it to your network. After you connect it to your network, it’s already ready to use on your mobile devices and other computers. The Epson connect feature is great for printing because it is always ready to go, even when you are away. The auto-switching cassette tray feature where I can have my photo paper loaded in one tray and plain paper in the other is amazing! No longer have to switch between printers because one prints photos better than the other. Although, AirPrint still has a small issue asking for glossy paper for regular documents (through email app) so I just use Google Cloud Print or Epson’s iPrint when AirPrint is having issues on my iDevices. Again, this is not Epson’s fault, it’s Apple’s for not letting you choose the format of the print on some apps. Oh, that brings me to the quality portion of this review. Quality of document prints are SPECTACULAR. Very sharp and clear text. As a photographer, photo prints are no joke either. Better than the HP Photosmart I have been using. Vivid colors, sharp focus, and smooth bokeh. It certainly does use a lot of the initial ink that comes with the printer. More than likely going to be purchasing the XL ink packs once the initial packs run out. Cosmetic-wise this printer looks fairly small like in pictures. It takes up a little bit of space but just imagine stacking two small Canon printers and that's about how much of a footprint it leaves. Perfect size for home offices and businesses. No need for a huge lifesize printer when you've got this one. It is a little heavy but not too heavy to carry around a house if need be. Recommend two people though just to not slip and drop it. Maintenance costs seem remarkably low for this sort of printer. Standard size black ink starting at only $19.99, CMY pack for $36.99, and the maintenance box for $14.99. Very similar to the photosmart I was using but you get WAY more features, longevity, reliability, paper count to ink ratio, and it’s ten times easier to use. All in all, I’m sticking to the 7720 for all my office and professional photography printing needs.

    Endless features yet easy to use!

    The size of the box of this printer impressed me before I even opened it. Once we opened it and saw all the features and such it instantly reminded me of a printer I’ve used in many businesses and not just small ones either. The 2 paper tray sizes printing well beyond the legal size was also a huge plus! We fired up the printer and put the ink cartridges in. I will say this is the one downside to this printer with such a massive amount of features, it just feels held back by not being a laser, but I knew this going in with this price range. The touch screen was used to setup things up. One thing I found weird is it asked for the data/time when we were about to connect to the internet. Surely Epson could update the firmware to just use one of the many time servers out on the internet instead of bothering the user with this. Just ask the user for their timezone and let it do the rest after the printer is connected to the internet. Connecting to the WiFi was simple, I was surprised to only see it connect via 2.4ghz and not 5ghz given the number of features. *Later I didn’t really find the printer to be slow via 2.4ghz WiFi but you do have the option of going Ethernet 100mbit with this printer. I’ve installed the software for Epson printers in the past and it has been a bit of a chore at times, this printer was a bit better but I did have issues on one of our computers with Windows 7 on it, the Windows 10 PC went a little smoother but it installed two of the same printers for some odd reason. I ended up deleting the duplicates along with the duplicate monitors in the system tray. Definitely a thumbs up with the printer being able to use the touch screen to configure the WiFi instead of others using the setup disc. Printing is fast with this printer! We’ve printed out several text documents, photos, etc. Even though it isn’t a laser, this printer still looks great! Once you get the printer setup make sure you dig off into the web interface of the device by browsing to the IP with your internet browser. There are SO many features, it’s crazy! I really enjoy being able to throw something on the scanner, pick my email and my wife’s email from the favorites and it sends us an email with the document. It really makes things super simple! I highly recommend this printer if you are looking for a do-it-all with ease of use that everyone can enjoy.

    Great All-in-One Printer!

    I received the printer in the mail, and was surprised by the size of the box. This is a good-sized printer. It has a bit of weight it, so it something that you will not be wanting to move everywhere. The setup of the printer is about as straight forward as you can get. I am very much the type of person that will dig into something and figure it out myself, then if I have a problem I will consult documentation.  I took all the blue tape (protector type to hold somethings in place/closed). I popped in the ink cartridges and then plugged it in. That’s when the magic started to happen. The printer did its own initial first startup process and had me set it up. I did not directly connect the printer to any computer, I only did the WIFI connected setup. (I don’t like unnecessary cables) That part was simple and effortlessly done with the touch screen that is on the printer. This thing will print HUGE pages, up to 13x19. I couldn’t print anything that size, but did use the 11x14 as that is a more common size that I use at times. I also loaded a tray (it has 2, plus a rear feed) with standard paper and a tray with some 4x6 photo paper. I printed a few documents I had on my phone and some random web pages from my PC and iPhone. I also printed a few pictures from my iPhone directly to the 4x6 using with no issues. The picture looked GREAT. I also printed some of the same documents with my color laser printer and to the naked eye you couldn’t tell a difference in my opinion. I also showed the documents to others in my house and they couldn’t tell a difference either. It may be time to retire my behemoth of a color laser printer and just use Epson. I would also like to note that the printer was quick and quiet. I was pleased with this part of it. One of the other big things for me on this printer was the ability to scan 11x14 documents. I have quite a few that I have been needing to scan for a digital copy and this did not disappoint. The quality was great and was quick as well. I also did scan some old photos that I had just to check the quality of that, and you will not be disappointed. Over all I personally feel that this is a great printer. Its quiet, fast and has the ability to print on multiple different sizes of paper. I think this is great for a home/home office/small business setting.

    Powerful and easy to use all in one printer!

    The Epson WF-7720 is a very powerful and easy to use all in one printer. For my small office printing in office, via PC, Mac, and iPad/iPhone 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, but the bonus for me was all detailed setup instructions were displayed on the large easy to read touch screen located conveniently at the front of the printer. This means I do not have to worry about losing the little booklet that came with the machine if I need to perform any future setup procedures! I was able to have it up and running out the box without a computer or even the need to download drivers to my computer and the entire setup process did not take too much time out of my day, so I was able to go back to being productive with a setup time of less than 30minutes out of the box. Printing wirelessly from my computer and other computers was easy, we were able to test printing from PC desktop, PC laptop, Mac Laptop and various Apple based devices without fail. Using my iPhone as a source is something I haven’t done before, but the WF-7720 made it very easy. Ink and paper were easy to load with detailed instructions on the large screen explaining how to resolve a paper jam issue. We experienced one jam from tray one, but were able to fix the jam and go about printing as normal after a quick 5-minute fix, this is nothing like our previous printers. Printing was quick, and the documents and photos were clean and professional. We have used other printers who claim to produce photo shop quality, and have been disappointed. This Epson Workforce really held true to its claims, all photos and other graphic prints came out clear and not pixelated at all. We were proud to print these images directly from our Epson WorkForce to present to clients rather than sending to the local printshop and work about their schedule to present the images to clients. Scanning was simple and clean and sending a fax was simple, even if I just did one as a test to a friend. The only frustrating issue I ran into was the double paper cartridge system. I had issues with printer from Tray 1, but after following the simple troubleshooting guide on screen as referenced above my problem was fixed.

    Great Home Office All-in-One Printer

    This is a short review of my experiences with the Epson Workforce WF-7720. I had limited experience with printer setup in general and no experience with setting a wifi printer up prior to obtaining this printer. When I pulled this unit out of the box and looked at the quick start guide, it all seemed pretty easy. The only thing I had to plug in was the power cord and I got started. From there, the setup was a breeze and I was printing within minutes from my laptop, iPad, and iPhone. This was huge for me that everything worked so smoothly from my iPad and iPhone because I do a lot of printing from them. The only problem I had was a slight problem at best…which was figuring out which direction to place the paper into the trays. That problem was easy conquered. Overall, I would say that I was very satisfied with the setup process. After setup, I went on to actually printing documents to see how day-to-day use worked out. I found that the wifi connectivity never failed me and the unit was always ready to go. I really liked that the printer had two trays for paper and each could be loaded with a different sized paper. I printed emails, text documents containing graphics, and photographs with ease. The quality of the printed material seemed great. The colors appeared spot on and the photographs were pretty good considering that this printer does not have the sole purpose of printing photographs. Another thing that I liked about this printer was that I was never bothered by the minimal noise it produced. There have really been no negatives so far in the few weeks that I’ve had this printer. In conclusion, my opinion is that this printer is a solid contender. If it were me purchasing a printer for general home office or small business use, I would certainly choose a printer such as this primarily for its diversity, easy setup, and hassle free printing to name a few. This thing can print, copy, fax, and scan. The biggest pro by far in my opinion is that its connectivity is so strong. Having no problems at all with wifi connectivity was a huge relief. I really don’t think you could go wrong with this printer where all-in-one is a priority to save space and clutter. Thumbs-up Epson.

    Worst printer I've ever owned

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    This is the worst printer I've ever owned. I've owned HPs for years with no complaints but I took a chance on this Epson. I regret that decision daily. First setting it up was a nightmare. It refused to print on anything but 8 1/2 x 11 paper. Why have a fancy printer if it refuses any other paper size? I spent an hour with Epson on the phone before we stumbled on some arbitrary setting about user privileges that had to be changed from the default. It seems it would allow anyone to print 8 1/2 x 11 but had to have this one switch flipped to allow for any other paper sized printing. After getting that corrected I still haven't been able to successfully print to 8 1/x x 5 1/2 sized sheets. It pulls multiple pages, jams and only prints parts of pages before generating bogus errors. I've tried printing tabloid 11 x 17 pages as well. Sometimes those work. It also arbitrarily cancels print jobs. Today I'm trying to do a 58 page PDF file. It printed 2 pages front and back then 2/3rds of the next page and then it just cancelled. No error, no warning, no notification. Just stopped. This has been a consistent problem that it just cancels print jobs with no indication why. Plenty of ink, plenty of paper, no one bothered it but it just stops. No way to restart the print jobs just have to resend them. I will NEVER buy another Epson after this nightmare. In this day and age there is no excuse for a printer being so difficult to work with. You should be able to load the paper, load the ink and send a document and have it print. But...don't expect that with this monster.

    Epson WorkForce WF-7720 Wide Format All-in-One Printer At first when I received the printer I was a little shocked of the size of the box. The printer itself is also pretty big for a small home office, but the ability to print larger format items is kind of the trade off for the size. My fiancé was put off by the size, but after I explained what I would be able to do with it for our upcoming wedding she began to overlook the size also. Set up was very simple. Open box, take out of box/remove packing materials, plug into electrical outlet and turn on. I think it took me less than 10 minutes to unpackage and setup the printer. After it was connected to my wireless network it said that there was a firmware update which took about 5 minutes. So within 15 minutes I was connected and able to print from all devices in my house. I really like the user interface of the printer. Very easy to use and the touch screen is perfect. I also like that there are 2 paper trays for different sized papers. I have been a laser printer guy for a long time and did not think that this inkjet would live up to my expectations. But I am very impressed by print quality. I have printed a bunch of 8.5”x11” items so far and a couple 11”x14” pictures/posters for our wedding reception. I have also printed a couple of examples of the wedding program and as soon as the finishing touches are added to them I will be printing them on this printer as well. The print quality is very crisp and clear for an inkjet printer. I am very impressed by what I have been able to do so far with it. Compared to printers I have owned in the past the ink refills seem to be reasonably priced. I am not sure how many prints you can get before needing refills, but I haven’t had to buy any yet. Overall I think this is a very good product my only issue again is the size. But again that is compensated by the large format prints that are available. Knowing what I know about this printer now I would purchase one if I was in the market for one.

    I Love This All-In-One!

    I received this printer with the box a little rough, however the packaging itself on the inside made sure everything was perfect! The box came with ink and instructions for setting up the printer for the first time. The set-up up process was extremely easy! Simply plug in the power cord, and you will notice in the box that there are no other cords as this is completely wireless, and it starts booting up on it's own. From there you follow the on-screen instructions or the included set-up instructions and it takes about 15 minutes to do. The color display on the printer is nice and big and very easy to read, making the instructions easy to follow. It tells you when to add the ink cartridges and then it will find your network as well. I was able to start printing from my phone as soon as it found the network! I love that! Once we had it all set-up we installed the driver on the main computer and from there we were able to scan, print, copy and fax pretty much everything. Scanning is great as you can do it directly from the printer without having to be at your computer as you can e-mail directly to the person from the printer. The print quality is great, copying and scanning produces very little artifacts on the paper and even the color photo printing is good for being an all-in-one printer! I admit my favorite part is being able to print from anywhere from my phone. I can be talking about something and bring it up and instead of going back to my computer to bring it up again to print it, I simply hit print and it sends it to the printer. It makes things so much easier! The printer itself if rather large, but it is an all-in-one and for everything it can do, I would rather it take up the space than lose productivity. If you are in the market for an all-in-one printer, this is the one to get! I even checked the cost for replacement ink and the cost is not bad, I haven't had to replace mine yet and I have printed a fair amount of pages, so I am still on my starter cartridges.

    RECOMMENDED PRINTER

    TexasOpine

    GENERALLY: This is a work-horse of a machine. It is of a size to reckon with; however, I can’t imagine a home office or small-to-medium-sized business office ever needing one of those expensive, major, free-standing monstrosities ever again! This unit will print single sided or in a two-sided design layout, and with its ability to produce spreadsheets and drawings up to 13”x19”, I no longer have a need to outsource larger-sized print jobs! EASY SET-UP: The WorkForce WF-7720 was an easy, out-of-the-box experience, but do recommend initially having assistance to remove it properly from the box. Once physically in place, the remaining set-up was efficient and ready to perform rather quickly. The full-front control panel adjusts to several angles and is clearly labeled; the window touch screen is a crisp, easy-to-read, and intuitive experience. Software download and wireless Wi-Fi connectivity was uncomplicated and easily managed via the coordinated printer prompts and computer onscreen steps. PERFORMANCE: The dual paper trays provide the on-going convenience of my two preferred paper sizes, yet easily adjusts for envelopes or larger paper; rear access allows for specialty paper needs yielding even more versatility. The auto-document feeder conveniently and smoothly handled my large document copying without manual intervention (up to 35 pages). Printing was easily accomplished from both my iPhone and iPad through the wireless networking, and scanning to my mobile device via the Epson iPrint app is a nice plus. Where some printer models compromise quality of output for other added features, Epson definitely does not cut corners on this unit. Everyday printing is exceptionally sharp; colors are remarkably crisp and natural. SUMMARY: This printer’s ability to handle large sizes of paper, along with great output quality, makes it a recommended and worthy consideration for personal office or business needs. Two thumbs up, Epson! This is a review for the Epson WorkForce WF-7720 Wide Format All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Bought this to use for my home office. Purchased online. Pick up went smooth. Got it home unboxed it and set it up. That was easy. While still setting up my home office I had to work during the week. I played with this one weekend and it made nice copies. It wouldn't connect to my WiFi. When I was trying to print it always have me an error message but would tell me what the error was so I could try to correct it. Couldn't figure out how to configure the thing to scan to my computer which is very important with my job. Tried messing with it a second weekend but still had no luck. I returned it because I couldn't get it to do what I needed it for. I only had 15 days to take it back so I boxes it up and took it back for fear of losing money on something I couldn't use. Taking it back to the store was another frustrating story that I will leave out of this review because this is for the product only not the customer service of the store. I'd like to add I enjoyed the ability to email something to the printers email address and it just printed, that was new. If I would have had more time to mess with this maybe I would have a better review/experience. Or if there were better printed instructions on how to configure some things maybe a better experience. Or maybe even if the printer told me what the error was so I could correct it. I still haven't went to buy another printer because I'm still frustrated and I returned this a week ago.
