Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fast and works for all the printing I bought this a few weeks ago and i love it. This printer is for office printing yes. I use it in my home. With two kids in high school and a grade schooler this printer is better than the ET-2550. I love them both but the 8700 prints faster and also can handle the high amount of printing better. It holds more paper and the ink lasts a lot longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up I bought this printer a couple months ago. Overall easy to set up. Seems like it is going to be a great fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problem Printer There are light lines running through my prints. The lines appeared within the first few weeks of using it, while it was still brand new. Using the printer's cleaning cycle, adjustments, etc does not help at all. I've tried everything, wasted a lot of ink and paper, as well as time, and never gotten good results. This printer boasts 2-sided printing and a maximum print size of 8.5 x 14 inches, but you can't print double sided at 8.5 x 14. It is extremely misleading. I use legal sized paper quite often and have to flip each document by hand. Overall I have been very unhappy with the quality of this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Directed Set Up Eco-Tank series of printers had been in mind for a few years - even heard of after-market set-ups, most likely because of which printer manufacturers have decided to create their own factory versions. Some difficulty getting the firmware update to follow through until the second software installation (with its included firmware update option) on a second computer on the wireless network. This was possibly due to the location of the second computer in its relation to the wireless modem. My layman's guess is that the first computer - a laptop was positioned too close to the printer at the time of wireless set up and particularly the firmware update. Sadly, our own Staples store had to close at the property-owner's behest as the location was desired for another purpose - as yet unknown. So, their displays were up for sale at a discount. Pounced on the ET-8700. Looking forward to its long-term use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice printer, but a little over priced I just bought this printer today, so not much I can comment about. I had the ET 4550 which was a work horse. It has 65,000 prints on it. It is starting to wear out a little, I mostly used 80lb. cover paper in it, and its slowing down. I need together something that has a Rear paper feeds, so this was the one. I will say I thought the ink bags would be bigger, the holder for them can hold a larger bag. The prints per bag is only a little better than the cheaper ET printers and the Ink for the 4550 is basically the same as the cheaper printer bottles. EPSON make the Ink bags bigger for this printer. It does seem quiet compared to the 4550 and much faster. They stand behind their product, my first ET 4550 lasted 42,000 prints before the printhead crapped out, they replaced it and this one is still going with 65,000 prints on it. Wish they sold replacement printheads.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fast, But Not Really "Eco-Tank" Prints fast and has a large rear feed tray for printing checks. The rear feed tends to not feed correctly about 25% of the time. Printer thinks that there is a jam and you must remove and reinstall the rear paper access. This is a real problem. Also, "eco tank" isn't very accurate as this printer uses wasteful ink cartridges. They do have lots of ink in them. But, there is no on board tank. Other than the above issues this is an OK printer. The rear feed may be a deal killer problem if it persists. If you don't need the rear paper feed I would avoid this printer. I have the ET2730 at another location and it works great at less than half the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't Wait, Order One Today I purchased the ET-8700 4 days ago and have already printed over 8,000 pages. This Epson is easy to remove from box and is packaged extremely well. The screen is clear, bright and easy to read. Setup was a breeze and the quality of printing is amazing. ET-8700 looks good on my printer table. So many options for adjusting the print settings. The print cost is extremely economical. I've had to change the magenta and black ink and that was the easiest experience I've had with this task. I highly recommend this printer. Go place your order right now for the ET-8700!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No duplex printing on Legal size paper, photos have streaks This printer boasts 2-sided printing and a maximum print size of 8.5 x 14 inches, but you can't print double sided at 8.5 x 14. It is extremely misleading. I never would have bought it had I know that. Printing directly from in-design I found the text to to be unacceptably bad. Printing from a PDF file improved it somewhat. The print options are minimal, the scanner seems fine, the photo quality is good except that many of my photos end up with light lines running all the way through them. Overall I have been very unhappy with the quality of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your search is over! After using this for a few months now here's what I've learned about this printer. The Eco-tank is amazingly efficient and simple to refill. It gives the user many settings to adjust ink usage to save more on your ink. You will find that the paper feed on top needs to be often due to how efficient and fast this prints. When filling this paper feed it is very sensitive to overfilling and will activate a error that you need to clear a paper jam code by opening the access door on the rear and resetting it. So make sure it is positioned to be able to have easy access to it. This makes very clear scans also. Overall I'm very happy and pleased with this All-in -One.

Epson WorkForce Pro ET-8700 Gets Down to Work

“Not only did the ET-8700 get all of the necessary copies printed quickly (with plenty of time to get out for overnight delivery) but it all happened without stopping for ink refills – something that used to put a hard stop in production that also required reprinting at least one copy and recalibrating the printer.”

“The robust features all worked perfectly, fulfilling their different tasks exactly as needed to make the office’s workflow as smooth as possible.”
