Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best printer ever we use the same printer in the office, over the last 2 years we did not have any issues. also we did not buy any ink yet. last count was 25500 pages. WOW. all smiles here. Note: we print mostly faxes and PDF files at a lower setting. but still amazing printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my start-up I quit my 6 figure salary to start my own Civil Engineering practice in the New York City area and cash flow is a big issue, lucky me I found the ET-16500 for my 11x17 needs, I haven't test it for photographic quality.... I don't need that, I just need clear, legible color engineering/architectural drawings without breaking the bank. The epson connect scan utility is an AMAZING feature I didn't know I need. This is what I do: I created a gmail account just for scanning purposes my et-16500 send all scans to that account.... I magically have a backup of every single scan! Talking about the google guys (thank you guys), I have a google voice number I use for my fax, it is just like a free land line I use for my Epson ET-16500 fax, no issues receiving or sending. Faxes in this century you may ask... well.... I deal with tons of state and city agencies that still use faxes, I even receive some RFPs from contractors via fax. Almost 9 months of moderate use and I couldn't be any happier, a very well engineered machine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Epson ET-16500 Just got a replacement printer because a paper feeding problem and the replacement printer is doing the same. I wasted over 60 sheets of paper and ink.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from the software is a problem In order to print 11x17 we had to download different software than the automatic download. Anyone who bought this huge printer wans to print on large paper...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best printer I've ever owned. Love this printer. Love the Supertank feature and the wide format features the best. Start to print from off is very quick. Easy to set up, even for an old timer like me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this printer! But there's a problem... I print architectural dwg drafts on 11x17 paper. Being old school, there is something magical about seeing design on paper, especially the short comings and just plain old mistakes that I can't see on my ginourmous dual 4k monitors. My little problem is the 11x17 paper is not feeding consistently in slot 2. This is a refurbished machine and hopefully Epson will solve this problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an awesome printer, quality and sizes are great! We have had this printer for almost a year now with no problems at all. And still have ¼ tank of black ink left, the color tanks are more in the neighborhood of ½ to ¾ full. The quality and flexibility of page sizes is great. We have been through many reams of paper with out any problems at all. The only thing I would like to see better is the integration with apple products. The previous one printed through wireless printing now you have to use an app called IPrint, that being said, I believe you have better control of your print quality. I probably would like the interface more if I had the time to learn a little more about it. For the most part I really enjoy the quality prints and the wide format with abundant sizes of paper that can be printed. The EcoTank option is truly innovative, you don’t have to buy and throw away expensive printer cartridges, I tried refurbished cartridges in the past but the color never turns out right so I typically had to buy new ones each time. This revelation is truly one that protects the environment and still gives very high quality images.

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. For more information, visit www.epson.ca/printspeed

3 About 50 cartridge sets estimate based on print yields of the included Black and colour ink bottles as compared to standard-capacity ink cartridge sets for similarly-featured cartridge printers as of March 2015.

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