Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Results Much easier to set up than expected. And after reading the reviews I expected a HUGE foot print for this printer. I have it sitting on a 32" x 24" stand with a storage unit under it for supplies, and there is plenty of room all around the printer. Color printing is fantastic; clear and extremely crisp. Print is excellent, and as good as any lazier printer I've ever worked with. Loading of paper is quick and simple. I suggest you be hooked to the internet when you load the software; as it makes it really easy for the printer software to be upgraded via download. No guess work in doing this as it is all automatic. Epson has thought of everything on this one. I've had some great printers in the past, but this one has them all beat hands down. Great job Epson, My Epson WorkForce ET-16500 EcoTank Wide-Format All-in-One Supertank Printer (as my grandpa would say) is a real WOWZER

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game Changer for us We have had this over two years and it is a rockstar. we own a restaurant and it prints everything. Menus, drink menus, kids menus, posters, etc. Never mishandles paper, sips ink which is affordable in our opinion. Doesn't do insanely good photos but we do not need it to do that much. It is the best printer I have had and we have had a lot of printers in the 20 years I have owned restaurants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why would anyone buy any other type of printer? This printer is all I ever asked for! The ink lasts a long long long time. It prints as good as my previous laser printer. NO MORE cartridges that expire before I've even used them. Software is easy to use. WOW! THANK YOU EPSON!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Productivity and operational costs fantastic ❗️ I bought this unit about 2 months ago, to replace another brand of printer that was only months old. This unit has replaced 2 wide format printers in my home office. The cost savings on not having to buy ink cartridges has now paid for the cost of this unit. I look forward to using this unit for a long time, I am considering getting a second unit to speed up my office work load. No office should be without one of these printers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable Quality and Price and exceptional. It is a vital part of our real estate business. Thought about leasing but I can replace the machine every 2 years after warranty ends and come out ahead.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Print Quality I expected better print quality. Perhaps I need to have it longer to saturate the colors. As of right now though, sadly disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Printer I've been looking for I use 11x17 paper quite often. This printer is able to handle the large paper, with a very inexpensive ink supply that large pages demand. The other great feature is the ability to print both sides of the paper. I like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Savings! Super Excited to get this printer. It has all the features we needed. Plus the eco tanks will be a money saver. The setup was fast and easy. The printer looks heavy, but it can still be lifted by one person(recommend 2 though to keep level just to be safe). The scan bed is large and despite all the features it has, it is still rather compact. It fits on the same stand we had our last printer. Obviously this is a new purchase. But if all works according to plan this review will stay. If there are any issues, we will update review and how issue was handled according. For now though, it is a beautiful printer!

Actual savings will vary based on print tasks, print volumes and usage conditions.
