Rated 1 out of 5 by from you MUST buy color ink to print in black and white this printer WILL NOT print in only black and white if you run out of color ink. I just spoke to an Epson representative about this, and the printer is designed so it CANNOT print in black and white without color ink. AVOID this company at all costs. Use HP, Canon, Brother, or any other company. AVOID EPSON.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have had the Printer 3 weeks and It's never worked I purched this all in one printer after retiring my older Epson all in one printer I had for 3 years. This piece of garbage has never worked from the time I hooked it up with a USB cable directly from printer to my USB port on my Windows 10 computer. I have downloaded driver and loaded and reloaded tem still with no success. I have decided now to not return the printer for a refund, and jut throw it in the trash where it belongs and purchace another brand of printer that will work with Windows 10.I recomend not to waste your time or money on this product that is garbage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features and more-Just what I was looking for I purchased this printer about a week ago and I'm happy I did. It works great. The installation and setup was easy. It was up and running in no time. The only negative thing about it is, the big Department store where I made the purchase, did not have replacement ink in stock.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not super user friendly i have a pretty good foundation in tech, not an expert by any means but I usually don't have much of a problem. This printer has been one head ache after another, and if I still had the reciept I would take it back and get something more user friendly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not so happy!! I’ve been a Epson fan for a few years now. So of course when it came time to replace my old Epson Workforce I choose the newer model. Even though the guy at Staples tried getting me to choose a different brand. Had the gull to say “why are you so dead set in that brand”!! Well I guess the eggs on my face cuz the new workforce 2850 is not even close to the old one. First Ive already had to replace it with a new one and now the new one won’t even set up because it doesn’t recognize the ink that came in the box!! Don’t even get me started on finding 212 ink!! What happened Epson?? And better yet what are you going to do to keep me cuz at this point I’m ready to switch. Here it is 8:37 pm on Wednesday night and after having no printer all week I’m about to lose clients. I mean come on two printers that have issues with not recognizing the ink?? I just Hope first thing in the morning Epson can do something. Other than the ink issues I really did like the printer especially the way it automatically did double sided (something my old one didn’t).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 15 páginas y tinta negra se acabó I bought this printer and it was delivered to me this Saturday June 4 2020, and I printed 15 pages and today I could not print since the black ink cartridge is empty There were 3 questions with an answer per page, it is impossible that it lasts so shortly the cartridges were sealed inside the box, I do not explain why it was quickly finished

Rated 1 out of 5 by from IT SUCKS I got this a few days ago for Christmas from my husband. I feel as though the printer I received was returned and resold. I'm listing my issues below. Initially, it was only for my laptop. Upon receiving I followed the instructions to download the driver from the Epson site. After following instructions I wasn't to print at all no matter what I did. It was unable to connect with my network so I had to use the USB. What's the point of that when you're supposed to "Wireless". I had to go through the drama of uploading everything to my husband's desktop computer so the printer could be added to the network. After finally being able to view the printer on the network. I shut my husband's desktop down so that I may work via my laptop. I went to print my proposal, the printer refused to print. Upon printer not printing, I visited my network just to confirm if it was there. Once I viewed the printer I clicked on the correct device I was going to need to use to print. Thinking that this solved the problem I closed out of the network only to sit for another 5 to 7 mins waiting on it to print. Through all of this, the printer is making the worst noise I've ever heard coming from a brand new printer. It finally prints. I'm thinking everything's cool until I go to print one of the pages I edited in the proposal. Received a printer not ready error again. Checked the network just to confirm if the print was showing. This time I didn't click on any of the options. So, I went to print again, still got the same error. I went back to the network again this time clicking a device, it printed the page. Again I'm thinking I'm good. Closeout the network. I go to print another page and I had to go to my network to click on the device again each time I printed. I've hadn't even had the printer for 72 hours until what little bit of ink in the start pack ran out. I only got to print out 25 pages before I was completely out of ink.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from YOU'LL BE DISAPPOINTED I purchased this about 4 months ago and had nothing but issues with it from the get go. I finally had to return it because it won't load photo paper. Terrible user interface especially for scanning. Had to reinstall the driver several time. Sucks up ink like there's a hole somewhere. Very noisy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Printer is an epic FAIL I used this only a couple times. used all the ink trying to get it to work. It will not print. I wasted money replacing ink. There is nothing on this unit that works. I gave it one star because there was nothing lower. Wish i could rate it "0" cause thats the use i got out of it after my money was spent. Brand new and will have to throw it away and buy something that works. Waste of time and money. Many things im behind on or havent gotten done because of this non functional printer...doggone progress killer.

6 Replacement cartridge yields are based on ISO/IEC 24711 tests in Default Mode printing continuously. Replacement cartridge photo yields are based on the ISO/IEC 29102 photo yield standard. Cartridge yields 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 have to be installed for printing. For print quality, part of the ink from the included cartridges is used for printer startup and a variable amount of ink remains in the cartridges after the “replace cartridge” signal.
