Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked for a year and then... I bought the printer about a year ago. I . printed less than 1000 sheets and it stopped printed color. The black ink is also diminishing in quality. I have had several Epson printers and never had a problem with them. I purchased this one thinking with the "eco" in mind. Even though they are willing to replace it with a refurbished product, if I have to replace the printer every year, it defeats the eco purpose. Additionally, when my warranty runs out next year, I'll have to cover the costs. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I bought the Epson WorkForce when my 3 year old HP died a few weeks after I was told they no longer stocked parts for it. I like the ink bottles instead of the cartridges. The Black is the only tank that it is hard to see the level in. I'm still learning the ins & outs of the unit but it works very good. I really like the two paper size trays. No more switching paper or having the wrong size in the tray. Very good unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good. I bought this product from Costco, online, and it shipped via UPS. UPS beat the crud out of it and it was with the back panel needing to be pushed back into place, Booo UPS. The only other thing I didn't like is no Airprinter support for the mac products but you can still email the print request. Will see how it goes after that. Scan and fax work great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the super tanks I bought this printer in November and am getting used to using it. I almost returned it as it is THE only Epson printer that will not accept AirPrint from iPads and iPhones! I still cannot believe it does not, even Epson and Staples thought it did! For The most expensive printer in the line this was a great disappointment. But I have downloaded the Epson IPrint and it generally works well. Just extra steps to have to save to Dropbox and print from there! I still have to figure out how to print double sided long edge as currently it prints the second side upside down! I do like the fact that I have so much ink! I just wish it came with a physical manual and not having to go online all the time.

1 Based on average monthly print volumes of about 300 pages.

2 Yields based on the ISO/IEC 24712 pattern with Epson’s methodology. Actual ink yields will vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or predominantly with one ink colour. All ink colours are used for printing and printer maintenance, and all colours must be available for printing.

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