† Black and color print speeds are measured in accordance with ISO/IEC 24734. Actual print times will vary based on factors including system configuration, software, and page complexity. For more information, visit

†† Maximum print speeds are measured with text patterns in Draft Mode on plain paper. Actual print times will vary based on system configuration, software, and page complexity.

†† Black and color copy speeds are determined in accordance with ISO/IEC 29183. Actual copy times will vary based on system configuration and page complexity. For more information, visit

2 Ink pack yields are estimated based on ISO/IEC 24711 test in Default Mode printing continuously. Ink pack yields vary considerably for reasons including printed images, print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or predominantly with one ink color. All ink colors are used for printing and printer maintenance, and all colors have to be installed for printing. For print quality, part of the ink from the included ink packs is used for printer startup and a variable amount of ink remains in the ink pack after the "replace ink pack" signal. For details, see

5 Compared to similarly featured color multifunction printers with speeds of 35 ppm or less based on industry-available data, June 2019. Actual power savings will vary by product model and usage.

6 Monthly duty cycle up to 75,000 is the highest duty a user could expect in a month, based on near-constant operation of a device of this kind. It is not recommended that the device be run at this duty. For best device performance, run the device at the recommended duty of 10,000 pages per month.

7 Not all media types are supported for PCL printing.

8 Most features require an Internet connection to the printer, as well as an Internet- and/or email-enabled device. For a list of Epson Connect enabled printers and compatible devices and apps, visit

10 Wi-Fi CERTIFIED; level of performance subject to the range of the router being used. Wi-Fi Direct may require printer software.

11 Only printing and scanning are supported under Windows Server OS.

12 Some applications and/or functions may not be supported under Mac OS X.

13 Based on ENERGY STAR TEC measurement methodology; 288 prints/day; actual electricity consumption may vary depending on printer use. For more information, see

14 Internet access is required to install OS X drivers and software.

15 Display permanence based on accelerated testing of prints displayed under glass in indoor display conditions; album permanence based on accelerated testing of prints in dark storage conditions. Actual print stability will vary according to media, printed image, display conditions, light intensity, temperature, humidity and atmospheric conditions. Epson does not guarantee the longevity of prints. For maximum print life, display all prints under glass or UV filter or properly store them.
