Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW!!! This is one incredible printer!! I do a lot of printing and when I say a lot I mean it. I print daily for my stores and print nonstop invoices, schedules, menus and stock sheets. I always burn through so much ink so when I got this Epson EcoTank ET-M3170 I was blown away. The refillable ink is just amazing and very easy to fill. The bottle of ink can print 6000 pages!! Yes I said that right 6000 pages. Most of documents are black and white anyways so this was a huge perk for me. This Epson ET-M3170 is also incredibly fast at printing its almost instant when click print. You can also print on both sides of the page to save on paper. Also you can feed documents from the top and have over 30 documents in the feeder , and again its lighting fast at making the copies. Setup was very simple and I was setup , connected to Wi-Fi, and up and running within no time. Setup was simple and easy. The Wi-Fi printing is also an incredible feature and can easily print from my phone, table, or laptop. Also it holds a bunch of paper in the tray. Overall I am incredibly impressed and has well exceeded my expectations. Also the replacement ink will save me a bunch of money instead of always going out and buying cartridges for my old printer. If your someone who does lots of printing look no further and grab this Epson ET-M3170 you won’t be disappointed. “This is a review for the Epson EcoTank M-3170 Monochrome All-in-One Supertank Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All-In-One Printer!! Im so happy that I have this EcoTank ET-M3170 Wireless monochrome All-in-one supertank printer, it has so many great features! Let's start with how simple the set up was for this printer, its a simple step by step guide anyone with a lack of technology could figure it out pretty quick as well. My printer was ready to go within the hour. I was a little worried to begin with dealing with the ink during set up but it was all in my mind it was a simple flip and wait. Let's talk about the features for this All-in-One printer. I am using this printer in my home as I do alot of printing in my free time with my projects. With this printer I'm not having to worry about ink as much anymore because the supertank is used very efficient the amount of ink used isn't as much as other printers but yet it works perfectly. My favorite part of the printer is probably the fact that I can connect it to my phone so easily and print instantly, that's definitely a game changer. The all-in-one printer also can print two sided pages this helps cut down cost and resources. The printer is very compact and lightweight easily moved if needed to be. How can I forget it has touch screen, its so nice for everything to be right there at my fingertips. This is such a great printer and I'm very excited to get more into how everthing works and use it for its full capability!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up! I love this EcoTank ET-M3170 Wireless Monochrome All-in-One Supertank Printer. I have never owned a wireless printer before so I was excited to get this set up for my home! The step by step instructions were clear and easy to follow. You have to fill up the ink bank with the enclosed ink bottle and follow the printers on screen directions to charge the ink for about 10 minutes. Then theres a 4 page alignment printing test to click through. After that is done connecting the printer to my wireless connection was quick. All of the instructions on the included CD installation software were easy to follow with on my laptop. I love that now I can print something while sitting on my couch on my laptop! My daughter has been copying some of her artwork and making even more art as new copies. We love this printer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best All in one printer I ever used I am very impressed with this printer. I did have a very hard time with setup it took my over a hour and half. The installation kept freezing soon as you get to the set-up part. I tried with the cd disk and tried downloading the software from the epson site. I finally realized I should restart my internet router. I waited a few minutes after the router start up and guess what it finally worked and finished set-up like a breeze. This printer is very simple to use. The ink installation (comes with start-up ink bottle) was very easy a person with no technology knowledge could use this. The paper was easy to load in the tray. I send all my paperwork from my phone to the printer when I am in a hurry and can't get on my laptop. I also can make many copies within seconds I used the fax a few times and sent all my documents without any long wait times or problems. I haven't had no paper jams yet and thats a plus.This printer is a very convenient tool to have in my office and not too big I am pleased and happy with this printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Efficient Print - Worth Purchasing. The first thing I liked about the printer, which was really unusual for me, was the bottled ink. It is pretty cool and easy way to fill/refill ink with any hassle of opening printer covers, dealing with cartridges. The tank is transparent too, so you can actually see it yourself, rather just relying of the Epson Manager to pop notifications about it. The Printer looks aesthetically cool too, not a boxy kind. The setup instructions and procedures are fairly easy to follow as it provides the brochure and on printer instructions to do so. I kind of like the small screen, which is decent in size and is touch screen which makes the use to toggle in between settings and options much easier. This is my my first time I have used this kind if printer with liquid ink to be poured into the given tank (EcoTank/SuperTank) . I think it is interesting concept for consumer level printers. The EcoTank provides much better quality and efficiency than the inkjet, including speed as well as total consumption of ink per page, in comparison to other printers that I have used and or tested before. In comparison to laser printer I have used and own, the quality is quite similar, but of-course speed is not as instant. But than again, for this kind of printer, it is sufficiently fast. I was impressed by the laser printer kind of feel of the EcoTank printer. Decent quality and easy to use and not worry about buying inks frequently as they get expensive. I love how efficient it is with the ink usage. The level marker has hardly moved even after using the printer, printing 200-300 pages a week as I was preparing for my final exams as well as I am a researcher at a university and needs 100s of printout. Also, it prints double sided which is a great feature and comes handy for me in saving papers as I tend to print my lecture notes and my research thesis and data all day. Not to mention that you don't have to re-feed the paper unlike some inkjet and laser printers. It does it automatically for you. The only thing that disappointed me slightly was Auto direct feed scanner (ADF). It did not do well. I am not sure if it’s the fault with the unit or some slight design issue or else I was doing something wrong with it as either it will not take/detect or else will create paper jam in the scanner. That is the only little problem I ran into which is not a big deal and I was able to resolve it after several trials. Regardless, it scans superior quality and it prints double sided, which is really a saver for my use. “This is a review for the Epson EcoTank M-3170 Monochrome All-in-One Supertank Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing modern printer one of the first things that I noticed about this printer was the touch screen capabilities. Wow! I didn't think that I would be able to connect to it as fast as I did with my IPhone! aside from it being so easy and fast to connect it I can also fax! there are a variety of options to connect if youre having issues with your mobile. I connected to my email and printed out some much need menus for an upcoming catering event. I cannot wait to try the different paper options for my menus. In a rushed moment on my part I forgot recently to print out an invoice for a meeting. Quickly I connected to my laptop and made some minor adjustments to my invoice. I cannot praise the speediness of this printer enough! I was rushed literally 20 minutes until my meeting in which I still needed to drive to. it saved the day! I couldn't be happier with this model, it fits every need for my catering events! it also comes in handy for last minute printing needs for my daughter in 3rd grade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Wireless Monochrome All-in-One Supertank Printer I am going to start with how easy and quick to set it up. I have no problem connecting it first to my laptop and then tried the mobile printing as well. I just follow all the instructions carefully, so I will not fail because I had a history failures towards setting up a new printer. But this time it was breezy and no headache occur. Before I had the Eco-Tank the multi color Printer and it was great too, the ink last long. But this EcoTank ET-M3170 Wireless Monochrome All-in-One Supertank Printer on only prints black white which I really needed it for my small business and my husband prints a lot for his school papers. I love the the fact that it prints in high volume printing and because it is a tank the whole bottle could last longer. Another great thing about this printer is not bulky, heavy for its size. Easy to move around or postion it in my home office. This is fast printer or prints very fast, very sharp quality in regards to the printing results. Some features that made this printer great is that, it has many functionalities like : Copy/Scan, you can do fax, Wi-Fi enability. It can aslo auto print 2-sided-printing, multi paper input, it can even auto copy/auto scan. The most convenient way of print is the mobile printing which fro me one great factor. Then you can do some other setting through its LCD touchscreen. I think this is very ideal for me and be very helpful to wards my business that requires a lot of printing. The storage capacity for the paper also bigger compare to my previous printer, so this is a plus factor that I don't have to refill very often. This EcoTank ET-M3170 Wireless Monochrome All-in-One Supertank Printer just exceed my expectations and very glad to have this as my printer. Definitely recommned to those who are looking for fast, reliable, and for high volume of printing, printer. “This is a review for the Epson EcoTank M-3170 Monochrome All-in-One Supertank Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features of the EcoTank ET-M3170 Supertank Printer! I got this printer about a month ago. It is definitely a great printer to use at home or in your office. I was very happy to use in our office for the first time. The printer we had was very old and not working well like it should have. I was glad to try this printer out because not only was it cartridge free, wireless, contained ADF, scan, and fax. My coworkers were very happy to receive this printer and how efficient it is to use. When opening up the box and setting up the printer it was easy because I took my time as well as followed and read the directions carefully. It worked fine and I tested the ink bottle when trying to print. It printed beautifully. I was amazed how quickly it printed on both sides and saved me time. It comes with enough ink to print 6,000 pages. You can save about 75% in energy consumption.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mightiness in a small package! I love our new Epson ET-M31170 ! The speed of this machine is incredible. It blows away our last printer. You have the fast / draft printing option and to me that is the best and most efficient. I have not yet printed photos however if black and white photos are your thing, this printer should be perfect. I appreciate the ink bottle for refills rather than buying cartridges, much cheaper.
