    Dependable

    After two purchases and returns of other printers ( one wouldn’t print and one wouldn’t connect to the internet. ) I finally went to Best Buy and purchased this Epson printer. I’m very happy with it. The salesman explained its functionality and the simplicity of connecting it to the internet as well as manually filling the ink cartridges. (They’ve come a long way) and he was correct, very simple and no mess. First time it connected and printed! I’m so happy with this machine and I’d recommend it.

    A fantastic home printer

    I sort of gave up on inkjet printers several years ago. The ink, more than anything, had me fed up. It felt like all I could get was couple of decent sized color prints before I was having to change another tiny, overpriced cartridge. I eventually just picked up a color laser for standard printing and proofing, and if I wanted to print something high quality like a photo, I'd just send it to a printing service.

    So I was skeptical, but interested to try out a tank-based printer, and as far as printing goes, Epson knocked it out of the park.

    The tanks, at first glance, seem like they might not hold all that much, but even after a dozen or so full color, full page prints (and a variety of smaller ones) I've barely made a dent. The filling process is simple, but I did have a minor issue with a spill on removing a bottle from its fill socket, which is probably due to user error. The white plastic where the ink touched is now stained a faint blue where I cleaned it up, but it hasn't affected the prints at all.

    And man, the prints are fantastic. Maybe I've just become used to the sort of dull colors that my laser provides, or maybe there's really something to Epson's heat-free micro-piezo printing technology, but I don't ever remember inkjet prints looking this good. It prints perfectly. No streaking, no dull spots. I'm stunned.

    Setup was quick and easy using the Epson Smart Panel app. Printing wirelessly works without any issues with both my phone and windows 10 devices, without any additional installs required. A few days after setting it up, the printer itself prompted me to update the firmware, which I was able to do through the front panel display without any instructions, as the user interface, although rather tiny, is simple and easy to use. I did have to download scanner drivers from Epson's website to scan to my computer via USB. It worked out of the box with Windows' basic drivers, but the quality was astonishingly poor. Epson's drivers did clear that right up, however.

    The scanner pulls in 1200 dpi with Epson's drivers installed, and so far my scans have been very serviceable, with none of the weird crosshatching I've seen so often on all-in-one devices. There isn't a document feeder, so this is strictly single-page, and it's great for scanning in photos.

    All in all, I'm very happy with the performance of the printer, the size of the ink tanks and the price of replacement ink. Epson's got a winner on it's hands for anyone wanting a high quality printer for home use, and I definitely recommend it.

    Easy to use and cheaper ink replacement

    Great printer, if you need a basic all in one printer for home or a soho, this printer will save you lots of money. Instead of replacing printer cartridges (that's where the expensive part is at), you only add liquid ink to it (you could say the cartridges are permanent in the printer, at least that's my thinking). You just buy new bottles of ink and replenish the printers tanks. Much cheaper.

    Setup was easy, however it took a few minutes, be prepare to spare around 15 minutes. Because once you add the ink from the bottles and turn the printer on, it does some sort of "ink prepare" and the process takes like 10 minutes. Once done, you can configure it using Epsons app on your phone. For the PC, they include a CDrom, this is a big con, who has a CD ROM on their PC anymore? It could have been cheaper to include an USB drive with the software and drivers. Anyway, I had to download the software from Epson's website and from there I configured the printer to use my wifi network, which is more convenient.

    This is a basic printer, and very good at it. Print quality is exceptional, just don't expect advance creature comfort features, like from more expensive ones (like the ability to scan documents automatically from a feeder, here you have to place each page to scan on the scanner bed) etc.

    I highly recommend it if you want to save money in future replacement ink, no more expensive cartridges or expensive subscriptions!!!!

    GOOD QUALITY – BASIC SUPERTANK ALL-IN-ONE PRINTER

    REVIEW: EPSON - ECOTANK ET-2800 WIRELESS COLOR ALL-IN-ONE CARTRIDGE-FREE SUPERTANK PRINTER WITH SCAN AND COPY

    MODEL:C11CJ66202

    GOOD QUALITY – BASIC SUPERTANK ALL-IN-ONE PRINTER / SCANNER

    The ECOTANK ET-2800 WIRELESS COLOR ALL-IN-ONE CARTRIDGE-FREE SUPERTANK is winning me over. The scan quality is actually very good, and the print quality is good. Actually, the color printing is more clear than the black printing in my tests.

    If you need a good no frills all around color printer / scanner the - ECOTANK ET-2800 WIRELESS COLOR ALL-IN-ONE CARTRIDGE-FREE SUPERTANK is a safe bet.

    It does not win any speed records, but the quality is overall pretty good. When I compare scans at 600DPI to other scanners I have, it is almost identical (see pics). The scans from the Epson were a touch softer, but the Epson did better at capturing brighter images.

    The print speed is slow, especially at high quality, but within stated specs (so no points off). As an example, I printed our 15 page appraisal report from our realtor. It contains a mixture of text, pictures, and charts. It took about 10 minutes to complete the printout.

    I would suggest you download and install the PC software from the Epson site to be able to use advanced features when scanning. I used the suggested Android app to scan and print which worked easily enough, but the results were poor, event when set to HQ. Still, if you need to print from your phone, it is probably not a situation that requires high quality.

    PRO’s

    - Very Good Scanning

    - Good Enough Printing Quality for Occasional use

    - WiFi Connectivity

    - Copy Feature does not require a pc and works very well (see pic)

    WHAT IS A SUPERTANK PRINTER?

    Back in the olden days (5-15 years ago), you bought a color ink jet printer for $59, but then the ink cartridges were up to $80 each (possibly even for each color). For infrequent users, often times, the ink would dry up before you came anywhere near using all the ink. So, off to the store to spend another $100 on ink. My solution at the time (15 years ago) was to get a color laser printer although more expensive ($500) initially, it allowed me to run 1-2 years before needed to replace cartridges. A few years ago all the ink jet makers started to switch to a supertank method where you initially pay a little more for the printer, but it usually comes with enough ink (via poured in bottles of ink) to last a few years for average home use. We probably print 5-10 pages per week. We have a different supertank printer (without scanner) and after 1.5 years we have only used about 1/2 of the included ink.

    I have a small concern about how fast I’m already burning through ink on the ECOTANK ET-2800 WIRELESS COLOR ALL-IN-ONE CARTRIDGE-FREE SUPERTANK. I’ve printed about 30 pages (HQ and lots of pics) and my ink levels are already down about 20% from where I started. Fortunately, INK is only $14 / bottle. I normally don’t print pics or HQ, so I assume my consumption rate will decline.

    SETUP

    I’m not going to lie, just about every device (this one included) that tries to make you do setup over the phone app is a huge hassle.

    My advice is to do the setup manually from the control panel screen on the printer and save yourself from pulling your hair out. (I don’t have that much to lose anymore).

    I followed the quick start guide and tried to do the install form the phone app. At first it could not see the printer on the default screen. Then I hit “menu” and “+” to add a printer, and it still was not seeing the printer. Then, as I started to power down the printer and suddenly it showed up in the phone app. I restarted the printer, and using the “+” method, it found the printer and nicely walked me step by step filling the ink and so on. Then it came time to enter my wifi information in the phone app for the phone to configure the printer. As soon as I hit “OK/SAVE” the phone lost contact with the printer and I could never get it back.

    Finally, I used the control panel on the printer to complete the WIFI setup, and this time it worked. The printer connected to my network, and it even found and downloaded new firmware without needing a screen.

    This time when I launched the phone app, the printer was found and I could scan / print from my phone, which was nice.

    SUMMARY / RECOMMENDATION

    If like me, you don’t print a lot (for home use) and sometimes need to scan, then the ECOTANK ET-2800 WIRELESS COLOR ALL-IN-ONE CARTRIDGE-FREE SUPERTANK does a very good job, without breaking the bank. If you need speed, then you need look at higher end models. The scanner is only a flatbed, so if you need a document feeder for scanning, then you need to look at a higher model. These are not negatives as the box even says right on the label “BASIC HOME PRINTER”. I can’t say it any better.

    Excellent concept to increase longevity

    Having grown up with ink jet, i was curious and pleasantly surprised with the concept of the ink tanks. Setting up the printer via the app for mobile printing was very simple and straight forward. each step was walked through one at a time as if you were chatting with customer service (see picture).

    Prints really well and is easy to use from mobile and computer. It is pretty slow to print when printing colour, but i may be spoiled from coming from laser. I had switched to laser some years ago because of how irregularly i'd print things. With kids getting older and in school, i've been using it more for work sheets and what not. Curious to find out how long the ink lasts in these tanks compared to cartridges.

    The control panel is easy to use and navigate, but feels flimsy and i find myself holding it up while i press a button since its on a hinged panel. Would feel more confident if it was sturdier, especially because since kids would be using this, i'd worry they may push too hard and potentially damage it.

    I also wish the paper feed was a little larger. with the load tray being out the top of the printer it doesn't have as much room to hold paper as say a printer where you can leave a whole pack on the bottom and have it print and output the page through the top

    overall there are a lot of features and if you need colour, then its definitely a good option. Since you don't need special cartridges, i imagine that will open up the alternatives for ink refills, but you may not want to bother since these bottles are really reasonably priced and should last a long time anyways.

    The ink will last longer than the printer

    The Epson ecotank ET-2800 printer is recommended and made for home use. This all-in-one printer is the lowest model in the Epson ecotank printer line up and you can definitely tell as it very cheaply made and had minimal features compared to the industry and it higher model Epson brothers and sisters. Please read below for my full review:

    Setup: I thought setup would be quick and easy as most printers are but this printer takes forever although it is still easy. I opted for the intial setup using my mobile device. Once you turn on the printer a QR code pops up on the screen and you can easily use your cell phones camera (Apple or Android) to start the process. The QR code brings you to download their app. I thought the setup was weird as Epson brought you through like a chat or text process. I'm sorry but I don't want to chat with my printer. Set up took almost 15+ minutes in total. Yes you read that right. After filling up the ink with the bottles it took 11 minutes for the printer to set itself up. Don't worry it counts it down for you. I know you only usually setup a printer once but it took forever and I don't want to do it again.

    Ink: The printer comes with 4 full bottles of 522 Epson ink (65ML each). Tons of ink, more than I have ever handled in an inkjet printer in my life. I plan for this ink to last a long time. Advertisement says up to 2 years but I am sure I will kill the ink before then. The bottles are designed to not make a mess and allow you to easily flip them into the printer tank slots/transfer ports. The printer will also stop think from flowing once each printer tank is full. Even after dumping the ink in I sill had a little bit in each bottle to top off the printer later (that was a surprise). I do have to say that it was not perfect as the printer did leak a little of the magenta ink on the magenta lid on the printer. I am not even sure how it did this but it did.

    Printer: This printer has minimal amount of features. It can print, copy, and scan but I feel as though that's all it can do. It is also equipped with wifi and mobile printing. BIGGEST FLAW: it only has single sided printing. This is horrible as most printers have this. The next models up are equipped with auto 2 sided printing so you will have to spend more to get this. The screen is super small. Actually the smallest colored screen I have ever seen at 1.44 inches. The screen is a waste and if I can barely read it at my young age then many others wont be able to read off it. The paper can only be loaded from the rear and looks like my printers from the 2000's. To a front loading paper tray you have to go a full models up and at this price range I think that is bazar. Almost all printers in this range have a front loading paper tray. I expect a rear paper tray (which is stinking out of my printer now and wasting space) on a $19.99 printer.

    Quality: This is where I feel like where they get you. Okay you are going to save all this money on ink, right? Well then they are going to give you the cheapest quality printer known to man. While not broken, there was plastic flap already off the printer which I discovered as soon as I opened the box. Everything on this printer is cheap and flimsy. I mean everything. I expect the ink to last longer than the printer.

    Photos only, Not an all-purpose printer.

    I could lead off with all the things this printer does not have. Drop to the bottom of my review for a partial list. This printer is really a Y2k printer in terms of features.

    Canon makes clear that the target buyers for this printer are folks who want the best possible photograph prints for about $300. What makes this printer state of the art is the 6 tank color printing system. At this writing, it's the only one in its class.

    It replaces my 6 cartridge Canon printer that has failed beyond my ability to repair it for a reasonable amount of money.

    While I was without a printer for a few days I had several giclée prints made commercially from a highly rated online printer. They arrived and were gorgeous. I used my new G620 to print the same photos onto Canon Pro Paper. My eye finds the new Canon prints much more vibrant and detailed. Nothing wrong with the giclée prints. But I had better control of the printing process doing it at home.

    The tanks with bottles of ink make these prints less than a penny beyond the cost of the sheet of photo paper.

    Annoyances - Documents are so so. Plain paper printing is so so. The scanner is marginal even for Y2k. 300dpi? Get real. The lack of light behind the tiny screen bites me almost every print job. The automatic (ish) wifi setups didn't work and I had to do it manually using that tiny screen. Almost unique for a Canon printer is the lack of a rear straight-through paper option for printing on thick materials and materials that can't be bent. Also no paper cartridge in front. No CD/DVD printing, It's really slow. Like, it's really slow!

    If you are looking for an all-in-one printer that will be your only household printer, pass this one up. If you want great photos and can't afford the prosumer printers of Canon and Epson, this is the one to get. Use a cheap B&W laser printer for the day to day things.

    A whole bottle of replacement ink for this printer costs about the same as a single cartridge for a "normal" photo printer. That will make you fall in love!

    Great Color!

    The color and print quality are amazing. I use this printer for making stickers and it does a great job so far. The price is great for a 6 color printer. The screen is small and takes some time to get use to but is not a deal breaker since most printing is done through your devices. The Paper feeder is a bit awkward and bends paper left on. I usually load as I print to avoid this.

    So far so good

    Unboxing and setting up was very easy. Connecting to WiFi was a pain and took three tries over an hour to get it to work. I am very pleased with photos printed on photo paper. Photos printed on plain paper are not as vivid. Look forward to not buying ink every three months. Only had a few days when writing this, will update if things change.

    Epson Quality & Value

    The Epson - EcoTank ET-4850 is a solid AIO ink-jet printer. I so wanted to give this product a resounding 5 Stars but considering the overall design and the obvious physical layout - I truly believe that at this price-point, Epson could have easily included a bigger LCD-touch screen. For average sized hands (fingers), the provided touch panel is usable but would be much more user friendly with at least another inch of diagonal size - much less a mere half inch more.

    At 2.4 inches, this touch interface comes off a bit cramped during the entire setup process and during daily use. Looking across the entire line of affordable Epson inkjet printers, this is the only model with the touch screen. IMHO Epson should have upped the touch screen size and included one on the lower model without the document feeder.

    With that out of the way, there really isn't much else to complain about on the EcoTank ET-4850. I'm a huge fan of refillable tank printers. It's the future!

    This AIO includes full-on Wi-Fi, Ethernet, USB and RJ11 (phone/fax) connectivity. The unit is well built and easy to set up. It took me all of about 20 minutes to print my 1st test page. It was nice to see Epson include an installation CD with all the needed software. You get all the customary drivers & utilities along with an easy to run Software Update program. The process was smooth & painless and I was even notified that there was an available Firmware update during the set up. I own other Epson products and I have to say that they've put a great deal of effort into making their setup & software installation routines intuitive & enjoyable. Other printer manufacturers can learn from this.

    The EcoTank ET-4850 handles a wide variety of paper types and in its most basic mode, holds 250 sheets of standard paper. While printing a variety of documents & pictures, I didn't experience a single miss-feed or paper jam. Photos come out with brilliant clarity and amazing color depth. Regular color documents are produced with crisp text and reliably consistence ink dispersion across the entire sheet and across multiple pages.

    The printer is about average in terms of noise output during operation but it is very quick. The auto document feeder is also solid in operation and a nice feature to have if you do a lot of copying or scanning of multi-page documents.

    This is my second EcoTank model and I can personally vouch for the big cost advantages of the refillable tank ecosystem. Once you've owned & used this type of printer, you'll never go back to using wasteful sealed cartridges ever again.

    Pros:

    Solid construction

    Smooth guided setup with the provided CD disk

    2-sided printing

    Scan to Computer from the printer control panel is brilliant & useful

    Excellent color rendition across documents & photos

    The complete in-home office tool for those that also require a fax machine

    High-capacity paper tray

    Super economical ink system

    Cons:

    Touch screen is simply too small @ this price point and hinders ease-of-use

    • Scan resolution up to 1200x2400 dpi

    • Print resolution up to 4800x1200

    That’s what Epson tells us. Keep reading for my take!

    **WHAT’S IN THE BOX**

    • Epson ET-4850

    • Four bottles of Epson ink, with enough ink in the box for up to two years of printing

    • Power cord

    • Documentation, including Software CD for Windows, warranty, quick start guide

    **THE SETUP**

    There are two ways to set up the printer. For users who already are part of the Epson universe with the Epson SmartPanel app on their phone OR getting the product ready to use, setting up Wi-Fi through the printer’s display without first having the app. Both methods ask the user to follow the prompts either on mobile phone’s screen or on the printer’s 2.4” color touchscreen display.

    Users are asked at a strategic point to install the ink from the supplied ink bottles, the printer responds to the ink being loaded, and then we are asked to confirm that ink is installed. The printer finishes priming the print mechanism for printing.

    Load some paper and set the paper size guides in the generous, 250-sheet paper tray.

    When these basic settings are completed, the Epson can print a test page to confirm its print alignment settings are good and that’s it, ready to go, except for any needed firmware updates.

    Loading about 100 sheets of plain paper in the tray.

    I chose to set up the printer for wireless only, though it has an Ethernet port for those who want a hard-wired connection to the network. There is also a standard USB Printer connection for those who want hard-wired connection to a computer. Finally, there is a standard RJ11 phone port with another port, a pass-through for a phone line connection necessary for fax use. The other jack can accommodate a hard wired telephone. None of the requisite cabling is included.

    Finally, with the printer on Wi-Fi, computers need the software to access the ET-4850 and print, copy, scan and fax. As with virtually all new printers or all-in-one devices like this one, Windows and Mac computers will automatically download the software on the computer recognizes the connected printer. All our Macs and all our Windows computers were easily set up for printing and scanning, with one Windows PC set up for faxing.

    Epson Remote Print was set up according to direction enabling the ability to print from a laptop or desktop computer to an Epson Email-enabled product anywhere in the world.

    Printing from mobile devices, from computers and as directed on the touch screen are all possible.

    Scanning to a mobile device, computer and cloud is available.

    Tipping out the bottom of the display for best viewing angle, it is time to . . .

    **PUT IT TO THE TEST**

    From a Mac, I sent a Web page to print, then a 3x5 photo in digital form. The photo lacked the snap I was hoping for, so I loaded a sheet of Epson photo paper. Much better!

    Copying (up to 100 copies) is easy both from the ADF or on the platen. Scanning, too, looked nearly perfect at all quality settings. Of course, higher resolution scans, as with prints and copies, take longer than at lower quality settings.

    Printing envelopes loaded in the paper tray worked well as expected.

    Scanning test – passed with flying colors.

    **WHAT’S MISSING?**

    There is no bypass slot for straight-through printing of iron-on patches or on any media that ought not to be bent and rolled through the normal paper path. All media must be picked up from the paper tray.

    **CONCLUSION**

    Except for a non-existent single-sheet bypass pick-up slot, this is a well-executed all-in-one printer. There is added value by virtue of inexpensive replacement ink bottles and the initial generous supply of ink included in the box. It’s a good deal all around.

    **WARRANTY**

    One year manufacturer’s warranty increases to two years with registration, including full unit replacement.

    The Best Printer I've Owned

    The main reason to buy this printer is the EcoTank. As that is where the money saving is. They report this printer should net you about 6,000 color pages or 7,500 black/white pages before needing to buy a new ink BOTTLE (approximate numbers which may vary). Those bottles bought individually are $20 for black, or $13 a piece for color. Or if bought as a bundle $39. Compare that to the traditional ink cartridge which prints about 220 – 350 pages per cartridge for about $17 (for black) or $39 (color) per refill (again approximately). Additionally, there is less waste with bottles as they can be reused and there are less of them due to lasting longer. Which is a win all around. These EcoFit Bottles also lock into place before they transfer the ink into the printer, so you aren’t going to be dealing with a mess and makes the whole process very easy even for novices such as myself. This is the whole reason I bought this printer.

    But you may be wondering why this printer costs more upfront compared to other ink cartridge printers. The reason is because their business model is to make money off their printers over their ink where it is opposite with others. In the end this actually saves you money in the long run, but you are paying upfront which some people don’t like.

    Thankfully, you still get a modern All-In-One Printer which supports printing, coping, and scanning. You navigate between all the options via a very small 2.4” touch screen which is very responsive but doesn’t have a glass covering which makes it feel a bit less premium. It can Fax 100 pages at a time. The scan resolution is 1200x2400 DPI which is good. I didn’t fax anything so didn’t test that. But did find that the scan resolution was good and didn’t have any issues with it. The biggest negative is the print speed. Which is 15.5 pages per minute for black/white pages or 8.5 pages per minute for color which is bit slow and not recommended for those who value speed and print a lot. Compared to about 20 pages per minute for black/color from your typical ink cartridge printer. Thankfully with a resolution of 4800x1200 DPI pages come out looking clear with easily readable print. Especially, if you calibrate the printer which takes some time but is totally worth it. I found it to be better than my other ink cartridge printers that cost about $100 – $200 which I would expect at a higher price point. For those who care it supports plain paper, photo paper (but isn’t a photo printer), glossy paper, and matte paper up to 8.5”x14” legal (normal printer paper is 8.5”x11”). The tray itself holds 250 pages (which is about half a paper ream) and it has an auto document feeder and supports automatic two-sided printing (which I really like as I hate doing it manually) which works well. Printer noise is minimal, the specs report 52 dBA, which to my ears is about right. Normal human conversation is about 60 – 70 dBA for comparison. They say the monthly duty cycle (how many pages it can print per month) is 5,000. Obviously, I didn’t test that because I’m not someone who prints a lot.

    Moving onto the smart features this printer supports either wired (ethernet) or wireless. Initial setup is easy. It will have you download the Epson Smart Panel app, which then literally walks you through the process of setting everything up via instant message which I thought was pretty neat. Through this it shows you how to install the ink, connects it to a Wi-Fi network (appears to only work on 2.4 GHz bands), goes through a 10 minute ink initialization (which can damage the printer if there isn’t any ink in it), went through a firmware update, alighted the printer for the best printer quality, Epson Connect (cloud printing aka smartphone printing), setup via wireless on a PC (usual way), and last you can setup fax features but need a phone cable to allow that which I didn’t do. Overall, the process was seamless and easy as it gave instructions the entire way with links when required. But was a lot longer compared to other ink cartridge printers (mostly due to that 10 minute ink initialization and alignment settings). You can connect directly to the printer via USB 2.0 (instead of the old school printer type cable). The same Epson Smart Panel App allows your smart device to print. You can also set it up to be voice activated. So, it checks all the boxes for a modern age printer.

    Overall footprint of the device is very small, especially for how much it can do. Which I like A LOT. The build quality is great and a lot better than your typical printer. I found it to be the best “home” printer that I’ve ever felt regarding build quality. With the only loose tray being the one for the paper. I like that you can see how much ink you have left by peering at the front bottom right which isn’t digital but a window. Which I prefer over a digital reading and keeps me up to date on my ink usage better since it’s kind of right there. Touch screen doesn’t have a glass front (which makes it feel not as premium) but touches are very responsive and accurate. When I was scrolling or going from menu to menu I didn’t notice any lag. There are also a lot of customizability settings such as quiet mode. It also shows how strong of a connect to the Wi-Fi you have along with the Bluetooth connection to your phone. Epson App is also easy to navigate and user friendly.

    CONCLUSION:

    This is an excellent printer that you pay upfront for with savings later due to the ink savings. Print speed is a bit slow and initial cost is high. Touch screen could be bigger but is very responsive without lag. Epson Smart Panel App is useful for those who only own smart devices (phones/tablets). Overall, I have very little cons with a lot of pros. I find it to be a worthy investment if you aren’t printing a crazy amount of pages monthly and don’t mind slower print speeds. It’s easily the best printer I’ve ever owned. But also costs about 2x as much.

    Excellent and Innovative printer

    This Epson EcoTank printer is excellent, and it is a must-have consumer office machine. Gone are the old spontaneous frequent replacement cartridge. Now anyone can make an economical print in color and high volume. I am an accountant, and I got this printer exclusively for my home office. Printing cost is reasonable that now my wife and two kids use a lot for their virtual school. It is getting plenty of use. Setup and connection take about 20-25 minutes to complete and require careful step-by-step instructions to fill the tanks with ink. I downloaded and used the Epson Smart Panel app for the entire setup (this is optional). Each color bottle is uniquely keyed, which makes it easy and error-free to fill each color tank. The uniquely keyed bottles are an excellent idea to prevent filling a color tank with a wrong color. Filling the tank, one must be careful not to squeeze the refill bottles. After the tanks were all filled, I followed a few more steps and connected the printer to the Wi-Fi. The touch screen responds very well, but the size could be a bit larger for bigger fingers.

    I like the convenience that I can print and scan from a mobile device. The Epson Smart Panel app has a tone of features on how to print or scan. A unique printing is ID cards; I can print both sides of any ID using the app in two steps. Scanning is fast with either the glass flatbed or the automatic document feeder. So far, I haven’t had any issue with the automatic document feeder. Once you get used to the machine, you will be scanning and printing stacks of documents. The prints come out with vibrant colors, and the blacks are dark enough. This Epson EcoTank printer does its primary purpose very well: to print fast and economically without compromising quality.

    A Super Printer

    The Epson EcoTank ET-4850 is a great home office printer. Setup was quick, and instructions were easy to understand. The size of the device was my initial concern. Fortunately, it sits comfortably on my desk by just being taller and having more depth than the average personal printer. The ET-4850 is packed with features. It isn't perfect, but executes exceptionally in many departments. The most important aspect is how does it perform with print jobs? Print jobs finished in a timely manner and with great color even for double-sided printing. Scanning produced high quality images, and the document feeder worked as normal. This Epson printer is very robust in connectivity with Wi-Fi capabilities, ethernet port, and USB cable option. Unfortunately, you're not supplied with a USB cord or ethernet cable, but they're inexpensive items. One desire is for the printer to handle photo printing better. This is not intended for that functionality, but the ET-4850 is very close to being the last printer you will ever want to buy for your home.

    Full On All-in-One in Small Footprint

    Especially capable ink printer with a small footprint that will be right at home in many spaces and roles. In any application where space may be limited the Epson ET-4850 will be good option for an All-in-One (copy, scan, fax, print). Can see the ET-4850 in a student’s dorm room, at home, and in offices.

    Strong point is the cartridge free high-capacity ink reservoir system which is stated to provide up to 7500 black pages and 6000 color. That is a remarkable amount of printing from one ink reservoir fill. Concerned that by adding ink to the printer could be messy, far from it, it is as simple as it gets and not a drop is leaked. Filling the reservoirs, the first time required about ten minutes.

    Document printing is striking quality suitable for professional correspondence, student papers, resumes, essays and for quick everyday prints. Photo printing is brilliant.

    Likes:

    1. Small footprint - replacing a much larger all-in-one and love the space saving

    2. Tilting control console with Color LCD screen – tilts from Vertical to Horizontal

    3. Print Quality – excellent for my resident student

    4. Auto-Document Feeder

    5. Not having to replace expensive ink cartridges

    6. Auto 2-sided printing

    7. 250 sheet capacity

    8. All-in-One features built into a capable small office printer

    9. Ethernet and Wi-Fi

    10. 2-year warranty – speaks to dependability

    The unit is somewhat noisier than the larger unit I am replacing, not an issue but noticeable.

    After a week of usage and a substantial amount of printing, from 175 double sided print job to many documents have found the Epson EcoTank ET-4850 to be Rock Solid, never skipped a beat.

    Very capable multi-function printer

    Just received the ET-4850 multi-function printer and opened it immediately to setup it up. Setup took about 30 minutes using the Epson Smart Panel app on my iphone. It walked me right through it from filling tanks to WiFi with no problems.

    Filling the ink tanks was a breeze - hard to believe just how easy it was and how much it can reduce future costs of ink! Great job Epson.

    Print setup was easy as well - ran through the adjustments and tweaked a few settings with no issues. Print quality looks good for normal document printing. Photo printing was very good - especially using photo paper.

    Scanning was easy to use, but the initial quality suffered. After playing with the resolution and a few other settings, I have it working better. The document feeder works well too. I used it both scanning and copying - flawless.

    I only gave a 4 star rating as I can't seem to find a way to set/retain the default scan save location. I want it to go into the "My Scans" folder on my PC.....

    Other than the default scanning location issue - this printer is quiet, fast and easy to setup! Sure to be a solid performer in your home!

    I like it.

    Very nice printer. The ink tanks are large on this one. They say you can print about 7000 pages before you have to refill one. This model includes a fax as well and a port for a phone with the fax line. The screen is a touch screen and it is easy to navigate. I set this up using my phone and it takes you step by step. The ink for the first time setting up the machine uses about a quarter from the tanks as it charges the lines in the printer. This is pretty much a one time thing unless you run the printer dry. It also pretty quiet vs other printers I have owned in the past. You are able to print via you cell phone and wirelessly on your computer. All in all this is a nice complete package in one unit.

    Brother printers & tech support are great!

    This printer marks my second one from Brother. My first, an MFC model network printer has worked quite well from the get go. This new one is for my wife's office and located immediately next to her desk. It unpacked easily and was not damaged ( although it's shipping box was, so good packaging saved the day!). Since a CD with printer software was included and her computer has no drive, I went online to get the drivers. This was the only glitch...the model wasn't listed on the website prompting a call to customer support. After a fairly brief wait, a Brother tech rep located in Jamaica got on the call and was quite professional in pointing me to the correct drivers and staying online until the installation was completed. I used tech support once before when my other printer lost it's connection. They were just as effective then. The tech support is offered for the life of the machine and is one of the reasons I chose Brother again. I highly recommend the laser printers whether the simple one like this or the more complex like the MFC series. Oh..They operate and printer very well! Getting a good deal from Best Buy with the use of earned Reward Points was frosting on the cake.

    Get this printer by Brother. The wife and I are happy with our purchase. Our last Brother printer model MFC 8860DN non wireless, purchased back in 2008 lasted 13 years before it broke down. just installed it today and the printer is up and running. Takes 10- 15 minutes to set it up.

    This model has fast printing. Great quality prints. Simple set-up of the printer and was asked to upgrade the firmware through the lcd screen.

    Scanner results are poor, print quality is great

    Why 2 stars? Read on. As a printer, it's great. As a wireless printer, the wifi connection is fast and easy to use. As a scanner, my HL-L2395DW is terrible. I have never seen such poor scan quality on any printer I have owned as far back as 2003. I am attaching images of sample scans. One of the images shows you a scan on the new Brother printer/scanner and a scan of the same printed material on the older, less expensive Epson printer. The older printer clearly wins. The Epson printer scan is an accurate representation of the printed material. The Brother printer, to me, has a useless scanner. I can not scan photos or any other material at a high dpi, because the result is useless in software such as Photoshop. It's possible, my scanner isn't calibrated properly, but I have found similar comments about the scanner on this model.

    Also I have to say that the quick setup guide that comes with the printer does not feature this printer. It could cause some people to struggle with setup.

    If the scanner was awesome, this would be a 5 star review, but since the scanner can not be separated from the printer when considering it's overall usability, I give it 2 stars.

    Fastest printer I've ever owned

    I was hesitant about purchasing this printer since it was the first of its kind and the technology hasn't been out there for long, but I'm so happy that I decided to try it. I require high volume printing for contracts and sometimes color for brochures. I've always been a laser printer user, specifically brother, but this technology is far superior than anything I've ever seen.

    The scan quality is much better than any other printer I've used. The apps that HP has to offer are vast and you can literally print from anywhere, there are so many options to do such a simple task. I've owned the printer for about three months and I havnt even gone through 15% of the ink that came with the box.

    My advice: if you are looking for a super fast, modern, and efficient printer this is the one. Especially if you are used to using laser printers and are tired of the low quality color that they usually give out.

    Little more cost but well worth it.

    It is working as expected. I've printed a lot of my work documents and it has still got ink. The originalcartridges. I went through a lot of ink with my old HP 8740. I loved that printer and it's set up. But sadly all printers eventually die. I purchased the HP 9025 thinking it would be a similar printer just more condensed in size. I hated it. I used it for a few weeks thinking 'it was new and I just needed to get used to it. In 3 weeks time I flew through ink. Hated the small dysfunctional out put tray and so much more. It went back and I purchased this one. Higher cost for the printer and ink, but I wanted something that was going to work for me.

    I have not been disappointed and am so thankful I did. No disconnecting issues with this one. Still on first cartridges sent. I am one that likes to be sure I've got ink on hand, but this one is doing great. I did purchase a black cartridge since I usually go through those pretty quickly. I haven't had to replace it yet. Cartridges are more in cost, but when printing number of sheets is compared to cost, it is so much cheaper.

    Let's talk about the paper. Output tray us perfect for printing several documents out. Holds several sheets, compared to the 9025, which was a joke. More than 10 pages on that one and they were on the floor. The paper tray is perfect as well. I can put an entire ream of paper in the tray at one time. And the additional tray for stiffer paper is placed in the right place to flip it down and get it going for envelopes and card stock. It's not on the backside of the machine like so many.

    Printing is quick, much quicker that my previous ones. Very quiet and only operates when it has a job. So no noise between printing time or humming of the machine. Overall printing of document is clear and precise. I don't do photos much so that aspect has not be looked at for overall printing appearance.

    Let's talk scanning. I do a lot of that and the automatic input tray has never been maxed on this one as it was on the 9025. The output tray handles them all. Very quick. Had to check a few times to be sure they all scanned and had to add a few single pages, but humidity was higher at that time, which I account for that aspect of sheets being pulled so fast that it has 2 sheets instead of the 1.

    Faxing is great as well. No issues overall with that.

    Overall I think this printer and I are going to work just fine together.

    Perfect for Home Use

    This Epson multifunction color inkjet printer, scanner, and copier is perfect for home use. Once connected to a wireless network, printing from any device connected to the same wireless network is quick and easy. The print quality is superb, and is much better than inkjet printers I have used in the past.

    The setup was very easy and took about 20 minutes. The first step is to download the Epson app.The app seamlessly walked me through the setup process by providing step by step instructions. Next I filled the individual ink tanks with the corresponding ink color using the provided bottles. If you are concerned that the process of pouring the ink will be messy, don’t be. Epson made the process as easy as can be. All it takes is opening the cap, and placing the ink bottles upside down on the nozzle above each tank. Then wait about 2 minutes per bottle for the ink to drain into the tank. I was able to hear the sound of the ink draining, and the fill line will show when the process is done.Remember to not squeeze the bottle, it drains on its own and automatically stops when the tank is full. Epson has also made it impossible to fill the wrong tank with the wrong color, by shaping the bottle nozzles differently. For example, It is not possible to pour magenta ink in the black ink tank because the bottles only fit the proper tank.

    The next step was to use the app to locate and initialize the printer and connect to my wireless network. Once connected to my wireless network, printing wirelessly is as easy as pushing a button from my laptop or wireless device. The printer was recognized by my Windows and Chromebooks, as well as my Apple and Android devices and phones. Virtually any device on my wireless network can converintly use this printer. This is a very useful feature because most people spend as much, or more time, on phones and tablets as they do on PC’s. When called to service, the printer takes less than a minute to wake up and print. The print speed is slightly quicker than your average inkjet printer.

    The LCD screen is large enough to easily read and use. The copy and scan functions can be controlled using the control panel on the unit, or the app.

    A nice advantage to having a wireless printer is that it can be placed anywhere in the home that is convenient or where there is space. It is also equipped with a USB port for wired connectivity.

    Epson really thought of everything with this unit! It features excellent print quality, flawless operation, and the projected print page yield from using ink bottles over cartridges is many times greater.

    A Good Value. Innovative?

    My biggest gripe with home printers is their lack of innovation. I feel like the tech in the printer my parents had growing up is pretty much the same that you’ll find in nearly every “new” printer on the market today. You pay for spendy ink cartridges and get mediocre prints from a device that isn’t particularly fast and looks like a plastic block. I appreciate what Epson has done with this printer to at least try to shake things up a bit. Functionally, the ET-2850 is like most home office printers - it connects wirelessly, prints, and scans. However, there are two very notable features of this printer that make it stand out:

    #1: The Epson Smart Panel app. Aesthetically, it’s nothing special, but functionally, it works REALLY well. The app walks you through the setup of the printer with clear instructions and pictures. While it takes awhile to do the entire setup process, I truly believe anyone could do it. The app lets you play with photos, documents, ID cards, scan things directly to your phone, access printer information like ink levels, manuals, and so so much more. I’m in my late 20’s and up until now, when I’ve needed to print something, I have always printed from my desktop. This is the first printer, largely due to the Smart Panel app, that I feel confident printing to from my phone or iPad. I can edit what I need using the app and feel confident that it’s going to come out right the first time, every time. When documents print, you also have the ability to select/ deselect two-sided prints. Nice little feature that saves on paper. I’ve always had to manually print, flip, print again to get things to print on both sides of a page.

    #2: You guessed it - the reloadable ink tanks. This may be the first really good innovation I’ve seen in a home printer since...well...ever? Each tank holds nearly all of the ink that comes in the included bottles. The black bottle is 127 mL and each colored bottle is 70 mL. For reference, high capacity cartridges average 16 mL of ink. This is significantly more ink than cartridges, which means you’re going to be refilling significantly less often, throwing away less plastic, and of course saving money in the long run. The tanks on the printer are easy to refill with an “auto stop” feature. Refill cost is comparable to cartridges. But remember, you’re getting more ink and refilling far less. At Best Buy, you can get all three colored ink refills (cyan, magenta, AND yellow) for $41.99 and black ink refills for $19.99. If the ink lasts two years as advertised, we’re talking about $30/ year. My one concern with the tank system is that there are tubes and I assume pumps that bring ink to the jets. Being a newer system, I hope that longevity isn’t an issue. TBD.

    It feels a little weird getting excited about a printer, but Epson really did a nice job with this one. Up front cost is a little higher than most, but I truly believe that cost will be made up with ink savings. If you’re in the market for a new home printer, definitely consider this one!

    PRINT TILL YOU DROP!!!

    The Epson EcoTank ET-2850 is an all in one solution that allows to your print whatever you may like, in color or black and white, without worry about running out of expensive toner and also helping save the environment. The Epson Ecotank included ink bottles will allow you to print almost 6500 in black and white and almost 5200 pages in color, that is a little over 500 pages of black and white and a little over 400 pages of color a month. The EcoTank ET-2850 is the perfect printer to satisfy your print needs for home, school and even work from home. Let’s go over the features, and PROs and CONs of the Epson EcoTank ET-2850.

    Setup: The setup process for the EcoTank ET-2850 could not be any simpler. In the box you will receive the printer, power cable, black, yellow, magenta, and cyan ink bottles and instructions on how to setup the printer. The EcoTank ET-2850 is a wireless printer, so it has built in WIFI. To setup the printer you would need to download the Epson Smart Panel app. Once the app is downloaded all you need to do is click “+” on the top right corner and the setup process begins. The printer is automatically picked up by the application and will guide you through the rest of the process. You will need to fill the tanks with the appropriate and included ink and then it runs through about a 10-minute ink initialization process and after that you are ready to print.

    Features: The Epson EcoTank ET-2850 is an all in one solution. This is a printer, copier and a scanner. You can print wirelessly and it has a flat bed scanner for scanning and making copies. The scanner has a scan resolution up to 1200 x 2400 dpi (Dots per square inch), for high quality and detailed scans. The printer has a print resolution up to 5760 x 1440 dpi, allowing you to print high-quality photos. The EcoTank ET-2850 can print black and white pages at the speed of 10 pages per minute and about 5 pages in color. This printer can also print two sided pages at the speed of 6 pages in black and white and 4 pages in color per minute. This is a rear fed printer, so instead of a tray for your plain paper, there is a slot in the back where you need to put the paper with a capacity of 100 sheets. This printer has a pretty compact design so it will not take up much space on your desk.

    PRO:

    ***Cheap Ink*** - I was able to find the compatiable replacement ink on Amazon for about $20 for all 4 bottles. (Generic Brands)

    Easy Setup

    High Quality Scan

    High Quality Print

    Wireless Printing

    Compact Design

    Two-sided printing

    Easy refill ink

    Cut down on toner cartridge waste

    CON:

    Small Display – 1.4 inches – Although is it comes with a color display, the display on this printer is rather small, its somewhat difficult to see any clearly.

    Slow print speeds – 10 ppm in black and white 5 (Single Sided)

    6 ppm in black and white 4 (Two-Sided)

    Overall, The Epson EcoTank ET-2850 is a good all in one solution for any of your home, school and work from home printing, scanning and copying needs. I have been using this printer at home for kids school and some of my office work and it has worked great. The scans and prints came out crisp and clear. I do wish that the display on the printer was a bit larger or even completely remove the buttons with a touch screen display and I was not a big fan of the print speeds but the quality of the print made up for the speed. All in all, I would recommend the Epson EcoTank ET-2850 all in one printer.

    Expensive, but a great printer. Economical

    There are three printers in this series, and I am reviewing the mid-tier option. This is more expensive than the ET-2800, but it does NOT offer automatic 2-sided printing. It is up to you to determine if the extra cost is worth is. There is a considerably more expensive ET-4850, and the main difference is a paper tray cartridge and a sheet-feeder on the scanner.

    Well, on to this printer: It uses GIANT bottles of ink that look like they should last for a while. Because you have to dump this ink, setup is easy and mess-free, but takes several minutes to empty the bottles. The bottles are keyed so that they will only fit into the proper tank, and a viewing window on the front of the unit tells you how much ink you have.

    As to installing drivers, this takes a while, and there are a few "feedback" options that you should uncheck on the first screen. Aside from being a bit slow, the install process went without a problem. It has a USB connection, but I opted instead to use the WiFi connection. It appears to be 2.4 GHz only, but that is acceptable for a device like this.

    The print quality is quite good. You have the option to balance quality vs. the amount of ink used, and the results look good. There is also a 2-up option. One disappointment is that there is no actual paper tray at this price, but up to 100 sheets sticks out of the top-rear of the unit, making it look awkward. To get the paper tray you have to step up to the high-end unit.

    The scans look good, and the software allows you to scan straight to a PDF file (nice touch), and even add more sheets for a multi-page document. This is a feature that I really appreciate.

    The only real problem that I had was when I was printing a double-sided document. One page got jammed (probably my cat's fault) and I had to clear the jam. The printer SHOULD have re-printed the jammed page, but it did not. Other than this, performance so far has been flawless, but I have only had the unit for a few days.

    Good print quality and economical ink tanks

    I currently own another Epson EcoTank printer so I know how much money you can save using this technology. I needed another printer and selected this one because of its footprint and white color. It is an attractive printer.

    Set up was very easy using the instructions in the box which direct you to download the app and then follow along as it guides you in how to fill the ink tanks. The process is simple and the bottles did not leak any ink.

    The connectivity to our network was quick and easy and I was able to start printing quickly, The print quality is very good.

    I like the fact that the paper loads from an upright position in the back. That allows te printer to be placed close to the wall which is exactly where I planned to put it.

    Overall, I would say that this printer does everything it advertises it can do. The only drawback for me and the reason I do not give it 5 stars is because it does not support Chrome OS. The main reason for getting this unit was to connect to a Chromebook and many Epson printers do support Chrome OS, but this one is very new and it does not yet do so, according to the Epson website. I hope they will fix that in a subsequent firmware upgrade. For now, it works with the USB connection for that tablet computer.

    Best out there, for me!

    Loving this printer! I have had no issues with it as of yet and I feel positive that it will stay that way. Quick and painless printer… from your phone too! Isn’t that what we all want!? Well, that’s what I wanted at least and I got it. Plus, no more cartridges, I think it’s awesome that it is actual ink you pour into the little tanks. I just started homeschooling our 2 year old and needed to print out LOTS of bright colorful schooling pages and this printer didn’t even miss a beat.

    HP-PageWide Pro 577dw Wireless All-In-One Printer

    I have had this printer in my "Saved for Later

    box for almost one year, LOL. I was waiting for it to go on sale. It went from $899.99, to $599.99, so I jumped at the chance to FINALLY purchase it. It is everything I knew it would be and more. I do not own a business. This was purchased for personal use, for our home, really for my husband honestly. We moved to Wisconsin exactly one year ago, and the way I designed his home office, this printer completes it. My husband is a tenure-track professor at the Business School, and he has A LOT of projects going on, and on top of that he teaches during the Winter semester, so to ease him having to spend long hours at work just to use the printer, I bought him a state of the art printer with all the bells and whistles so that he can work at home freely. I have not used it to its fullest potential, and my husband says he loves it and hasn't reported any problems. This printer was well worth the wait and money, for sure!

    Very happy!

    We had a printer we got from Best Buy that ended up having problems. We always get the extended warranty. Without any hassle, we upgraded to the HP, which is a much more professional model and put it in our office. We used to shop at Conn's but when we had a few issues with them, we switched to Best Buy and now we buy almost all of our appliances, electronics, etc. from them. I just wish they would reopen the stores again!

    Great features and AMAZING print speed!

    After several years and many cartridges of use, my HP Photosmart Pro 8600 Plus lost its ability to connect to my home WiFi. I kept it on the network for a couple of months via a cabled connection to my router, but it felt like the time was right to respectfully retire this printer and buy a new one. I have used HP printers for years and have had great service from them, so HP was my first stop for the replacement.

    I decided on a higher-end multifunction device this time around. I was originally thinking of getting a midrange color laser MFD, but was intrigued by HP's PageWide technology. As the name suggests, printing occurs over the entire width of the page at once with a page-wide cartridge rather than a moving print head. As you might image, this technology delivers amazingly fast print speeds. The specs state up to 70 pages per minute for color printing, but seeing it hand out page after page after... Well it's a thing of beauty.

    Construction of this printer is very solid (the term "built like a tank" comes to mind). It is not significantly larger than my old printer, but the weight is nearly 60 pounds.

    Cartridges for this printer are not exactly inexpensive, but even the lower capacity cartridges are good for up to 3000 (color) or 3500 (black and white) pages. That's a LOT of pages for me, so I suspect that it will be quite some time before I need to worry about replacing them.

    I received the printer less than a week ago, so I'm just scratching the surface on its capabilities. If you want a higher-end "prosumer" quality printer, I would recommend that you give this one a shot. It's absolutely amazing!

    It's expensive, but worth it in long run

    Reviewing Prints: Please note when looking at pictures of monkey and elephant the larger print job is the Epson ET-8550. The smaller is my previous HP printer. Not the lack of details and how off colors are on the HP vs the Epson ET-8550

    A very good photo lab quality printer. Go and get yourself some premium 13x19 matte paper and you'll have a printer that is really good at filling out a wall with your photos for a fraction of lab prints.

    I was worried about its ability to reproduce colors with only having one gray but it works really well. I put the print out against my color calibrated monitor and what was on screen was pretty close.

    What I noticed immediately over my old HP photo printer was that the grays looked gray and not blueish and my daughters red dress wasn't faded looking once printed but the same red pop in the photo.

    All in all I would say buy this if you are into printing photos. I'm getting prints that would have cost me $20-32 bucks out for $1.20-1.30ish at 13x19 and most of that was the expensive paper I bought that was $1.10ish a sheet.

    If you buy this printer make sure you download the drive from Epson. You don't need the extra tools unless you really want them but you want the full driver. The windows installed version is a light version and will be missing a ton of advanced features like the ability to print up to 13x19 and setting high quality print.

    Fantastic Printer at a Fantastic Value

    I have had this printer for a little over a month now. I have to say I am very impressed with the quality of the printer itself, as well as the prints that it produces. I wanted a printer that would allow me to print the thousands of pictures that I have amassed over the years and have never taken the time to have them printed. This printer allows me to decide which pictures I want to print and what size, up to a mind blowing 13" x 19".

    buyer beware!!!

    if I could I would give this a 3.5. I've had this printer now for a month and have only printed one thing with it and that's the test page. It took an epson tech two weeks to get my brand new laptop to even finish downloading the driver to use it. The download would go so far and stop! It is supposed to be able to print up to a 13x19 print, but the software for it only shows up to a standard size 8.5x11. I paid almost $900 for this printer so I could do large prints and it is just sitting here collecting dust! I'm sure it does make beautiful prints, but i can't get it to work. I've been told by a few others that they are having the same problems so I know its just not me.

    Worked great until we had to change the toner

    So we purchased this model back in October of 2018 and the machine worked great, it took some getting used to but overall it was exactly what my wife and I needed for the work we do at home. We finally ran out of toner and opened the high capacity toner that the machine came with through the Best buy deal that was going on.

    After installing the toner there was a toner error message. We had to find support online as there was no instructions about clearing this error (thank god for YouTube). Although following the steps on how to rest the toner counter the machine still would not recognize the new toner. So thinking that since the toner was 2 years old, maybe it had expired, we went and got more toner and a air can to spray any dust in the machine to make sure all connections worked etc. Well, new toner also didn't work.

    So calling Brother I didn't know what to expect, but after running some tests it turns out a pin was broken that connects to the toner to the machine, so the machine had to be replaced. While I am not happy that the pin would break so easily, I was happy that it was still under the manufacture warranty and brother will ship a new machine in 2-3 business days at no cost to me. I feel that is reasonable solution for a company.

    Make sure you are gentle when replacing the toner and this machine should be good for you. We use it primarily for scanning, and that feature works great. The print quality is also good and the speed is great. Way better than using an ink based home machine.

    great printer decent price.

    This printer Works flawlessly there is a few downsides like not printing with Bluetooth and when you're printing a photo with a white background it tends to make the white gray other than that the price is a little higher but that's only because of the extra toner that comes with it all over a pretty good printer

    It just works

    This is the most trouble free printer I have ever used. The printer drivers installed and worked without troubleshooting needed. The iOS print app also just works. And scanning just works.

    Double sided prints have been flawless for my first few hundred pages.

    Ink does not dry out because of lack of use.

    I have used ink jet printers in the past and the ink would end up drying out. I don't use a printer enough to keep the ink in working order. So this time I went with the laser jet and that problem is solved.

    You won't regret it

    Love this printer!

    Works great, no uneven color, no jamming pages, just working great.

    20 stars would be fair for my opinion.

    Terrible for envelope printing

    The MFC-L2750DW does a great job printing, copying, and scanning documents. However, if you print envelopes, you will hate this printer unless it is in the middle of the room or you can easily access the back to pull down a flap and push down 2 levers. Envelope text is then crooked. Had to return the printer.

    Fantastic printer. Best Epson I've owned.

    This is a review for the Epson EcoTank Pro ET-5170 Wireless Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. And by far this is the best Epson printer I have owned - the smaller size and speed is superior to other models. And that includes Canons and Brothers I have owned. Some of the printers I have had in the past are R2D2 sized beasts for the amount of work I've needed them to do. But this one, very small size with a great scanner, copy function and printing that rivals even laser printers. And I tested it - takes print commands from 50+ feet away (not that I need to do that often). I would have given it five stars if the set-up instructions were a teensy bit easier to deal with. Getting the printer aligned was a little confusing but I figured it out. Great printer.

    Great printer that will need all your needs!

    My husband and I have our own home businesses and we were looking for a printer that could handle the volume of our printing needs personal and professional. We were tired of paying the costly price of printer ink. The EcoTank Pro ET-5170 printer was the answer to all of our printing needs.

    This printer can print forever without having to replace the ink cartages every week or month and saves us a lot of money. The capacity of the paper tray is also quite large it can hold 250 sheets of paper. I love to print my own photos for my business and personal photos as well. The photos that this printer can produce are amazing. This printer also has the ability to create double sided prints to save us even more money on paper.

    This is not just a printer it is also a scanner, fax machine and copy machine. My husband and I share an office so it does not take up a lot of space and replaces three devices. I have to scan lots of documents for my businesses and scanner in this device scans multiple documents automatically saving me time.

    This all in one printer was easy to set up and will save us a lot of time and money. If you have a small home business you should definitely check it out! This is a review for the Epson EcoTank Pro ET-5170 Wireless Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Great for printing from photo or PC, Unlimited Ink

    Printers aren't something that you get excited about but this new Epson has earner my small business respect. I print a lot in my real estate home office everything from contracts, MLS listings, to business photos not to mention the required family photos and kids school projects. In the past I would buy ink every other month. No more with the Epson, I figure that its ink will last more than two years.

    On top of that, this printer was a breeze to setup on my PC. Plus it was automatically recognized by my mobile phone - no software required. Simply choose a photo, select print, and the phone found the printer. I print more photos then ever. #LOVETHATFEATURE

    Oh, and its a beautiful piece of hardware. No more boring grey of black box that gets relegated to the utility room. the new Epson EcoTank Pro ET-5170 looks like a piece of modern art with an elevated level of piano black hovering over crisp white it has earned a spot on the corner of my desk. I can't say that a printer has done that in about 20 years.

    Great All in one Printer

    Great Super tank printer

    I got this EcoTank Pro ET-5170 for my Home business office. My first impression is wow, It's great All in one printer. Let's start with set up. On the box you have printed instructions how to unbox your printer, Very easy. It was securely taped with blue tape for transport. You need to check everywhere for the tapes and remove them. Warranty card ,set up instruction and software CD is included too. .Filling ink tanks is very easy too. Just remove the bottle cap and insert to filling port until it stop flowing, close the cap and repeat with another color. Next step load paper into loading cassette. Install software ,connect to WI-FI and you are good to go. Whole process is very self explanatory and easy.

    I did install Epson Smart Panel App on my Android phone and I can now print photos from my phone. Quality and speed of the printing is amazing.

    You can choose gloss or matte photo, plain paper, envelopes etc. It does double sided prints too which is great help.

    The cartridges should apparently be good for 2 years .but of course it vary how much you will use it. It's great All in One printer .

    Well Worth the Cost

    The Epson EcoTank Pro ET-5170 printer is a nifty mid-size dual level printer, scanner, and fax machine. The big feature on this great for work at home workers and small business owners printer is its EcoTank ink system. While at first I was apprehensive that I would make a mess filling up the ink such fears went away after I added the first color and discovered how quick and easy and safeguarded the process is.

    The other fear I had was around the set up of the printer – both the physical and network setup would be difficult, but nothing could be further from reality. The printer comes completely intact in the box. Just pull it out and plug it in and your printer is set up. Adding the printer to your wifi network and getting out up and running was also super simple with prompts to guide you along the way. The same goes for the app which is where you’ll be doing much of your printing. I just wish the app had a better user interface since I found it a bit clunky.

    Now on the main event – how it works. For a home printer you will be hard pressed to find a better printer, especially when it comes to quality and speed. This thing produces high quality prints – whether it be regular print jobs, double sided jobs, labels, photos, ID cards – crisply and quickly. The scanner and copier functionalities also were great whether it was a single page or several.

    Overall, this is printer is sturdy, attractive, and works great. If you do a lot of printing at home, this is the printer to get. And the money you’ll save with the EcoTank makes it well worth the price. Another great product from Epson.

    Great

    The quality of the printing is very good, the only details that I see that seem to have a color flaw, is when it is printing light blue color looks very clear, I think it is very fast, in the photos it is taken a little longer than normal, as it should be, I have not tried sublimating yet, but that is what I will try next week, it seems to me that the design as such is very good.

    I would like it to have Support for a greater number of pages , but in general it seems to me that it is a very good printer, I think that the price is a little high compared to all those on the market, but I think that it is because it has to do more things that I have not yet been able to discover.

    Quick and Compact Color Printing Dream

    First impressions upon receiving the Epson EcoTank ET-5170 Wireless Printer was the compact design. Not only was the printer smaller than I expected, around 14.8" x 13.7" x 13.6", but it was also very light (under 20 lbs). Unboxing was a breeze. The box contained the printer, an AC power cable, 2 rather generous black ink bottles (127 ml each), and one each of cyan, magenta, and yellow color bottles (each 70 ml). There was also a quick guide for set up as well as a CD -Rom that could be used for computer setup.

    The Epson EcoTank ET-5170 quick guide for setup was very user friendly. The first step was to remove the blue tape that kept the printer safe during shipping. Filling the EcoTank ink was next. I was very pleased with the efficiency and cleanliness in doing this. Each bottle is fitted with a nozzle that directly fits to the accompanying tank. The black tank took about 90 seconds to fill and the color around 30 seconds each. Once filled, the ink did seem to settle, so I reattached the bottles allowing the small remaining ink to be dispersed. There was zero squeezing, no leaks, spills, or wasted ink at the end of the process. This was fantastic!

    Next, I attached the 5 foot AC power cable and powered on the printer. There is a 2.4” touchscreen monitor that walks you through the options for time and date formatting. The next prompt begins an eleven minute ink charge. This was a great time for me to upload the Epson Smart Panel app to my phone. The Epson EcoTank ET-5170 has the option to be connected wirelessly or by USB or ethernet cable (not included with the printer). After the ink is charged, the printer guides you through a series of print tests that create the perfect alignments and adjustments. Once that is complete, the printer prompts through Wi Fi connection, as well as a Quick Fax Set-up Wizard, if that is an option you would like to use.

    Paper is loaded via a drop down door in the front of the printer. The paper drawer has the expected paper guides to help with correct positioning when loading paper of different sizes. Printing was clean and crisp and the paper came out with the printed side face down. The top of the EcoTank ET-5170 also comes equipped with a top loading copier and a flatbed scanner. The scanner works as expected but with a slightly less crisp resolution than the actual printer. The toploading copier was the only disappointment for me and the only reason I would not give a perfect 5 star review. The paper to be copied had to be placed just right or it would not advance. It took me several tries to get this to function and even then, it was not perfect. It almost felt like tension was too tight in the rollers and was hindering the paper from advancing correctly.

    Overall I think the Epson EcoTank ET-5170 Wireless Printer is a great option for small offices, at home work spaces, and for families who aggressively use color ink. This price point of the printer may be a little more than one may want to spend on an at home printer, but the savings on ink will make up the difference. The ink is projected to last 2 years and after testing over 300, full color 8 ½ x 11 sheets of paper without making a dent in the ink supply, I can see this being very true.

    Elegant, Fast & Goodbye to Expensive Ink Cartridge

    This printer is a superb choice if quality and cost per page is important to you. The Epson ET-3850 wireless EcoTank All-in-One Printer is a very reliable, inexpensive, easy to use and compact device which will economically and quietly print large quantities of documents at a very nice quality level.

    Epson is one of the three major units of Japan’s Seiko Group (the other two produce Seiko watches and SII microelectronics.) Seiko created the printing timers used in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, then developed the first electronic mini-printer (the EP-101) in 1968. In 1975 the company created the Epson name to brand the next generation of printers based upon the EP-101 technology. Epson literally means “son of EP” and it introduced dot matrix printers in 1978. Epson created the micro piezo inkjet technology (which is the basis for most modern inkjet printers) in 1993. To combat the cost and waste associated with inkjet cartridges Epson released the first of the EcoTank line of printers in 2015. When it comes to printer technology you can’t go wrong with Epson!

    Here are the key features of this great multifunction printer:

    • Epson ET-3850 All-in-One Color Inkjet Printer/Copier/Scanner

    • 2.4 inch color LCD control screen with animation of help function

    • Connectivity: Wireless (802.11b/g/n), USB, Ethernet 10/100

    • Ink capacity/page yield: Black 127 ml = approx. 7,500 pages, Cyan/Yellow/Magenta 70 ml each = approx. 6,000 pages

    • Print resolution: up to 4800 x 1200 dpi

    • ISO print speed: 15.5 ppm (Black), 8.5 ppm (Color)

    • Automatic duplex (two-sided) printing

    • Multi-page printing on a single sheet – up to 16 pages/images per side

    • ISO duplex print speed: 6.5 ppm (Black), 4.5 ppm (Color)

    • Paper capacity: 250 sheets in lower tray

    • Paper sizes: Adjustable down to 3.5” width, Letter, A4, Legal, #10 envelopes

    • Duty cycle: Up to 5,000 pages/month

    • Scan function: up to 1200 x 2400 resolution, 8.5 x 11.7 inch flatbed (A4 paper size)

    • Copy function: up to 99 copies, reduce, enlarge, borderless, duplex

    • Epson Smart Panel app for Apple and Android phones

    • Dimensions: 14.8 inch Wide x 13.7 inch/19.8 inch (w. tray extended) Deep x 9.7 inch Tall

    • Weight: 16.1 pounds

    • Includes Photo+, Photo Editing, ScanSmart, NetPrint utilities, setup and driver software

    • Two year/50,000 sheet limited warranty

    First impression of this printer is that is elegantly styled in an arctic white with subtly rounded corners to relieve the bulkiness seen in some competitors’ devices. It has a minimal impact upon your workspace with a nearly square footprint (just 14.8” x 13.7”) and stands a compact 9.1” tall. Epson cleverly designed the sheet feeder to fold flat when not in use, minimizing both the height and the width of the printer. The power cord has no bulky transformer on it so it adds to the clean look of the printer. Overall you will be pleased to share your office with this beautiful unit, especially since when in operation it is very quiet. Wirelessly connected, it can be located in any convenient space – it does not need to be next to the PC it is serving. This is ideal for homes and small offices since you can also use this great device as a supplemental copier.

    Setting up this printer is very easy. Epson protects the printer during shipping with tape around key parts, but all of the tape is bright blue and very easy to remove. The quick setup instructions are well-written (unlike those of some other manufacturers) and you could just read them. But an even easier method is to download the Epson Smart Panel to your phone. Attach the power cord to the printer, but don’t turn it on. Then just obey the illustrated step-by-step instructions in the app. Filling the ink tanks on the printer Is foolproof. The ink bottles have alignment tabs which securely hold the bottle while it fills the respective printer tank and the filling process stops automatically when the tank is full. There will be some ink left in the bottle, so reclose it and store it in a seal bag (see photo) to prevent possible leakage. Flip down the ink tank cap and repeat the process with each ink color.

    Once the ink tanks have been filled, turn on the printer’s power and follow the detailed instructions in the Epson Smart Panel. The system will be charged with ink in a process that takes about ten minutes. The control panel will display the progress during this step.

    Next, load some paper and the printer will conduct an alignment process during which four pages will be printed and you will be asked a series of question to select the line on the page which best matches the sample shown on the control panel.

    Once the alignment is complete you can continue to follow the Epson Smart Panel app to connect the printer to your wireless network. Alternatively, you could use the CD included with the printer to establish the wireless connection. The CD also contains the supplemental software which you will use to get maximum benefit from the printer.

    If, for some reason you do not want to use the printer’s wireless connection option, there are two other connection methods: attaching an Ethernet cable to your router or using a USB cable to your PC.

    Any computer on your network should be able to access the printer. If you don’t want to use the setup CD and have a Windows PC just go to Settings, then Devices and select Add Printer. The Epson printer should be discovered and the driver automatically downloaded.

    The Epson ET-3850 has a large (250 sheet) paper capacity in the lower paper drawer. It loads easily and is adjustable for multiple paper sizes. To print envelopes you must remove the paper and adjust the paper guides to the width of the envelope. If you want to use legal-size paper the end of the paper tray flips down to accommodate the longer paper.

    Print quality is really excellent, even in the economy (standard) mode. In the higher quality (business document) mode the print quality matches most laser printers I have used. The printer driver provides nice printing options like 2 on 1, 4 on 1 and up to 16 on 1 (number of page images on a single sheet of paper), borderless, scaled, fit-to-page, booklet and others. The most useful option is the automatic duplexing (two-sided printing) which it manages without drama.

    Photo printing quality is quite good and will satisfy most purposes. (If you want really outstanding photo printing quality you should invest in a dedicated photo printer with more than three ink colors.) This printer’s color capability will be best used in printing business documents (graphs, multi-colored text, PowerPoint slide copies, etc.) and it does a very nice job on such tasks. The printing speed is not equal to that of a laser printer but certainly acceptable at about 16 pages/minute (black) and about 8 pages/minute for color documents (speeds estimated by my own testing.) For home use and most small offices this is more than adequate.

    Scanning, at resolutions up to 1200 x 2400 dpi, can be managed from the printer’s control panel or by using the included Espson Smart Scan Utility (or by just using Windows Fax and Scan utility.) I recommend Epson’s utility which will scan to a PDF, stich large documents together and facilitate OCR, among other features.

    The copy function is excellent, producing up to 99 copies in black print or color from each original with options for shrinking or enlarging originals, adjusting contrast, etc. The color control panel walks you through the options available or you can just hit the start button to make a single copy with the default settings and the automatic document feeder.

    Other bonus features include easy printing from phones and tablets using the free Epson app.

    But the most important feature of the Epson ET-3850 All-in-One Inkjet Printer/Copier/Scanner is that wonderful EcoTank. It holds 127 ml of black ink and a total of 210 ml of color ink (70 ml each of cyan, yellow and magenta). Those massive tanks will print about 7,500 sheets of black ink documents and about 6,000 sheets of color documents. If you print ten pages a day that initial ink supply will last you for more than three years! The best part is the incredibly low cost of the ink. The refills for the ink tanks are far less expensive than replacement cartridges. The cost comparison to standard ink cartridges is amazing. A typical replacement inkjet cartridge for other printers costs $30 to $40 and will print 220-350 pages at an ink cost per page of about $0.09. The ink cost per page of the EcoTank system is about $0.004 – less than 5% of the cost of a standard inkjet printer! If you are upgrading from a traditional inkjet printer you may be used to minimizing your printing to avoid the expense of ink cartridge replacement. This Epson Et-3850 will free you to print much more readily since you have a cost per page lower than almost any other printing device on the market.

    Those savings are due to the fact that you are not replacing the print head, as you must with each new ink cartridge, and the elimination of the plastic cartridge body cost. The ecological benefits of eliminating this waste are a nice bonus. The only replacement item on the Epson ET-3850 is a “maintenance box” which collects excess ink. It costs about $15 and probably needs replacement every other year.

    The only caution that I would advise is that you print at least one page in black ink and one color copy every month to keep the ink lines from potentially drying out from lack of use.

    The more I use the Epson ET-3850 EcoTank All-in-One Inkjet Printer/Copier/Scanner, the more I like it. I can happily give this great printer a full five stars and my unqualified endorsement. Buy it without qualms!

    Great printing and Flatbed, Poor ADF and Reds

    Disclaimer:

    I am a member of Best Buy’s Technical Insider Network, TIN for short. Reviewers in this invitation-only program are provided products for the purpose of writing honest, unbiased reviews.

    First Impression:

    The Epson ET-3850 is lite weight when compared with other multi-function printers I have owned. Single page text and duplex page text print quickly and print to first page is as fast as any laser printer I have used. I was very surprised by how quickly full-page graphics print. Flatbed scanning is quick and detailed. However, colors are not accurate enough for my tastes. I found color accuracy issues with both scanning images and printing images. Scanning documents via the page feeder is terrible. Loading ink is super easy and mess free. The ink tanks hold enough ink to last a good long while under moderate use. See below for further details.

    Setup:

    It took me 20 to 30 minutes to setup this printer. Unboxing was easy but time consuming. There was a lot of protective tape used to prevent the printer’s moving parts, doors, and sliders from being damaged in transit. The printer includes four bottles of ink (Magenta, Blue, Yellow, Black), an installation CD, quick start guide, and the usual warranty information. See included photo.

    You can setup the printer in a few ways: install the included software suite, configure from the printers control panel, or use the Epson app on your cell phone. I chose to configure the printer using the app on my phone. The app walked me through setting up the printer, filling the ink wells, priming the printer, setting up the network, and more. The app setup process is interactive and resembles a texting conversation. I included an image of one of the setup steps.

    Loading the ink from the bottles was quick, painless, and clean. To see how clean, I laid a scrap piece of pure white towel on the table in front of the ink wells. Each color is loaded one at a time. The neck of the bottle fits snuggling into the tank head and forces the bottle’s seal to open. The tank is gravity fed and will auto stop filling when the tank is full. On bottle dripped a few drops of ink as I removed the bottle from the tank head. I removed this bottle too slow and tilted it to one side as I removed it. Otherwise, there was zero mess. The attached photo is the white after all tanks were filled.

    The Ink priming process takes about 10 minutes. The print head alignment process takes about another ten minutes. I did not like the alignment process. It was four printed pages of being asked to tell the difference between six possible line configurations and picking out the best. The alignment images were so small that I had to inspect each printed page under a magnifying glass just to see them. Then, I spent a good minute or two trying to figure out which of the six picks were most correct. I think Epson could have accomplish the results with larger alignment images. Anyone without perfect 20/20 vision will have a very difficult time with this.

    Finally, if you do not have a CD player then you can go to Epson.com/support and get all the software that ships with the printer including the printer drivers.

    Printing:

    Fantastic speed and clarity. Single page black and white zoom out of the printer. All ink jet printers I have owned print one line of text at a time. The ET-3850 seems to print a quarter of the page at a time. I cannot confirm if this is happening, but I stand by my statement that this a fast printer. I would say as fast as a fully warmed up and ready to print laser printer. Duplex printing is a little slow mostly because the printer must pull the page back into the printer and flip it over. The duplex mechanism is still close to what I have experience with a laser printer.

    Color accuracy, however, needs improvement. My biggest gripe is Red. Reds come out orange and never match the original source material. For a test, I downloaded a simple color wheel. See attached images. I printed the color wheel using high resolution settings. The Red and Orange look almost the same. I scanned the image back into the system using both the Automatic document feeder (ADF) and the flatbed scanner. Each scanner read the image differently. Both samples are included in the attached photo. Finally, I photographed the printed color wheel with my Sony Alpha camera in full daylight. I realize the white balance in the photo is off but the differences between orange and red are still evident.

    As a second test, I scanned in a book cover that had a very vibrant red to it. I then printed that scan and got a very weak red color like the color wheel. I did not include an image of this test because it did not prove anything different than what my color wheel images already reveal.

    The next test was the difference between the ADF and the flatbed scanner. The ADF has color accuracy issues, paper jamming issues, and does an over-all crummy job creating an accurate scan. See attached photo. For this test, I used the book cover I mentioned in the last paragraph. You can see that the flatbed scan is crisp, clean, and vibrant. The document feeder is a printed copy of the book cover from the flatbed scanner. You can see the colors are dull, washed out, and the image is full of horizontal white lines and artifacts. The artifacts are more clearly present in the pure text example I included in the same image. I would compare the image quality of the ADF to that of a fax machine. The text I scanned is from a report that I printed from the ET-3850. The original hard copy looked crisp and without any artifacts. I did notice that the AFP did not smoothly pull the document through the paper feed and through the scanner. I think this led to both the poor scan quality as well as some of the paper jams I encountered.

    Faxing:

    The ET-3850 has zero faxing capabilities.

    Interface Panel:

    The interface panel is easy to use, quick between the menus, and well laid out. The display is not touch a screen. Everything is driven by a touch pad. The interface panel is on a hinge that allows that screen to be parallel with the floor for easy use. Then it can folded out of the way when not in use. The LCD panel does have a time-out and will eventually turn off. The power button light will not turn off under any power condition other than unplugged. The power button light is bright enough to light up a small room. If you find this annoying, then you will need to put a piece of tape over the power button. I was unable to find a setting that turned off or dimmed the power light.

    Images:

    Full page color prints on standard quality are almost as fast as a full page of black and white text. Fine detail prints take about three times longer. To be honest, I did not see much of a difference between standard quality and high quality. I did not see a setting to allow the printer to do borderless prints. It will print full page with an eighth of an inch white boarder around the image. The printed images are clean, lines are sharp, but color saturation can be muddy at times. For example, I printed the one and only image that I can find on the internet of the Battlestar Galactica from Blood and Chrome. On the screen, I could make out all the detail between the Galactica and the space station in the background. Detail was lost in center of the image where the high contrast features were overtaken the darker colors. The detail that did show was much darker than in the original image.

    I also saw a similar affect with the image of the Enterprise B from the book cover of Star Trak Shipyards from Eaglemoss. The starship has a lot of dark blues. This caused parts of the ship to fully vanish against the darker background when I printed the image I made from the ET-3850’s flatbed scanner. Is this good enough for term papers and business reports? Yes. Is it good enough to print high quality printers for display in your office? No.

    Finally, Reds are not accurate.

    Final thoughts:

    This printer may not be for you if you require the use of all the features this printer provides. The ADF mechanism is not the best I have used. Color accuracy, paper jams, and scan quality are all major issues for the ADF. Print quality is excellent if you don’t require color accurate reds. I also find detail lost in scenes where a lot of like colors saturate the image.

    This may be the printer for you if your main goals are lighting fast prints great flatbed scanning capabilities. Epson does market this printer as a home printer and not a home office printer. If you do not need the ADF or faxing functions then this is a good printer for work from home school, or collage.

    One thing that I really love about this printer is the ADF tray folds up into a flat surface. This may sound minor but ADFs waste space. This allows safe storage of laptops, papers, books, whatever you have.

    Taken as a whole, the ET-3850 needs some work before I could recommend. If you need a solid MFP that is fast, holds a lot of ink, and can produce great looking reports then this is an easy printer to recommend.

    I hope you found this review helpful. Thank you.

    Great Printer for the Home Office

    The Epson EcoTank ET-3850 printer has ink for years. That's not hyperbole, it really does have ink for years. And, when that ink runs out, you could replace the black and color cartridges for around $60 on BestBuy.com. If you can get past the initial expense, the EcoTank ET-3850 is an economical printer that does a good job with daily prints, photo prints, and scanning. For those reasons, I recommend the ET-3850.

    Setup:

    Epson includes a compact disc with drivers and software, but as my PCs no longer have disc drives, I had to download PC software from epson.com/support. Look for drivers and software for the ET-3850.

    After installation, the software found additional updates on check.

    But, if you choose to go the mobile route, the Epson Smart Panel software was easy to use and provides a simple interface to set up, print, scan, or troubleshoot the printer. Smart Panel was an easy and convenient way to print documents or queue photo prints directly from my phone.

    The printer can connect via WiFi on the 2.4ghz band (wifi-direct or over a router), LAN, or USB. There is no included USB or Lan cable. I chose to hook the printer up via WiFi. As long as I was connecting straight to the router, the setup was easy. If I tried to hook up to a WiFi extender, the printer had trouble connecting and communicating with my devices. Not sure if that was a problem with my extender or the printer, but, if you can, your best bet is to hook up to your primary router.

    Installing the 502 ink was easy and I didn't have any mess. There's a locking system in place to keep the ink from spilling before the tube docks with the printer. But I'm not sure what would keep someone from putting the wrong ink into the wrong slot. I couldn't tell if the colors and black were uniquely keyed. Maybe they are, but I wasn't about to test and find out. Long story short, make sure you match up the colors to the right dock.

    Also, I should point out that in addition to the ink, the printer requires a maintenance box, part number T04D100, which wears out over time. Price for the maintenance box varied, but it seems to run between $15 and $25 depending on retailer.

    Experience:

    The printer is fast with regular prints. Dual sided printing worked, but did experience more of a delay. I printed photos on Epson Premium 4X6 and 5X7 photo paper. I thought the prints came out great. I love the color from Epson printers and the ET-3850 was great in that regard. Blues and purples really popped and lines looked crisp and sharp

    Cons:

    Not enough to ding the review, but there are a few design decisions that I wish where changed or improved upon. First, there is no USB or SD Card input. As a result, you won't be able to print directly from a USB stick.

    There's only one paper tray (or paper cassette). If I want to switch from printing standard documents to printing envelopes or photos, I have to take out the existing paper and make adjustments to the tray and the software on the printer.

    The auto document feeder was a bit of a struggle. Thinner paper wasn't picked up as easily and I found myself working to get some documents through. But on the whole scanning worked well and looked good.

    Conclusion:

    All of that aside, I like the printer. It's nice seeing the physical ink levels from the front of the device. I like how the photos look. Document prints have been done well and single sided prints have come out fast. All-in-all, the ET-3850 is a solid printer for any home office.

    EcoTank Supertank is a Game Changer

    SUMMARY

    Printers have always been troublesome pieces of tech for me, which is usually down to just a few recurring things:

    1. Getting the printer to stay connected wirelessly to the print devices

    2. Troubleshooting errors when they occur

    3. Having to constantly buy ink cartridge bundles to replace colors which never last

    So far, this EcoTank printer has tackled each of my three biggest issues with clever solutions that finally make a home office printer which is both a great performer and supremely easy to use. Between no issues connecting to all of my printing sources, a very helpful companion app that makes understanding the printer easy, and the EcoTank system which uses ink reservoirs instead of cartridges, there is a lot to love with this printer. Yes, it does have a higher upfront price tag, and is not going to win any speed printing competitions, but when you consider the amount of ease you get, not to mention the low running/operating costs, the price tag becomes a lot more reasonable.

    SET-UP PROCESS

    From the get-go the EcoTank ET-3850 makes a great impression, and that is down to the set-up process. I would highly recommend anyone getting this printer to download the Epson Smart Panel app, which features a virtual assistant like set-up process where the app talks you through setting-up the printer step-by-step, which is admittedly quite quick as easy. Most of the set-up involves removing all of the packaging material on the printer, loading the ink via the included bottles (which stop filling automatically once the reservoirs are full), connecting to your Wi-Fi (which can be done via the app while the ink initialization is getting ready), and running an optional but recommended print calibration process to dial everything in. Once that is all done, its simply a matter of connecting to the printer from your print source and then you are off to the races. Paper can be loaded via a standard tray on the bottom of the printer which pulls out, and you can pull out a separate tray right above it to catch paper as they print.

    OPERATION

    The best place to start here is with the headlining feature, the EcoTank/Supertank which uses ink reservoirs instead of cartridges. What this means is that not only do you use much less plastic without needing to constantly replace plastic cartridges, but you also get a lot more ink for your buck, with a quoted 2 years’ worth of ink in the box, assuming normal printing loads. We print quite a lot at our house, certainly above average given our jobs requiring physical materials & documents, and thus far we have barely seen the ink levels move in the EcoTank reservoirs. Speaking of which, being able to physically see the reservoirs empty with the semi-transparent windows on the front is a small but amazing feature. It was always annoying dealing with surprising warning messages that you were almost out of ink when using cartridge-based systems, but now you can actually see where you ink levels are at in real time, and use that to help prepare for what colors you might need. Likewise, you don’t have to deal with annoying multi-color cartridges, so if a particular color is running out quicker than the others, you can just refill that color. Likewise, if you don’t use a whole bottle of ink, you can simply reseal the bottle and save it for later, so no ink is wasted.

    In terms of operation when it comes to user interface, this is largely good, but not the best I have used. You use buttons to navigate the admittedly small screen, which does feel a bit of a step back compared to modern touchscreen displays. I’d prefer to have a slightly larger touchscreen with smaller buttons, but in terms of overall usage, this isn’t a deal-breaker by any means. The actual UI itself is fine as well, with easy navigation to the various menus and sub-menus, and clear locations for everything within the software.

    Now for the big one: printing. First, to start with the good, print quality is great. Text is sharp and colors look great. You can print from your computer or your phone, and you are able to print with smart assistants for voice-activated printing. Where printing faulters a bit is with speed, which I would classify as “good but not great”. You are not going to be left waiting all day for things to print, but if you are a super printer who needs high volume documents quickly, you might want to invest in a model or two higher than this. The printer does possess what Epson calls PrecisionCore Heat-Free technology, which leaves pages cool even after lots of printing, and doesn’t result in any distorted text or graphics. Likewise, you do get automatic two-sided printing as well, which is one of my must-have features with any printer.

    Now I know I have focused a lot on printing, but this is actually more than a printer, as the ET-3850 also has a scanner & copier as well, which likewise perform very well across the board. Finally, one last positive I want to mention is the size of the printer. As this printer is designed for mostly home office functionality, you want it to be as compact as possible. The ET-3850 on that note is surprisingly compact, with more height than width, which is how I prefer my printer to be, given desk space is a valuable resource in my relatively small home office.

    CONCLUSION

    Honestly, if you couldn’t tell already, I really like this printer. It has all of the essentials I need in a home office printer, and then builds upon this with a very large ink tank system, great print quality, a very easy set-up system, strong companion app, and compact form factor. Like I mentioned at the start of this review, it does possess a significant upfront cost, but for all of the cost you save in maintenance and the great ease of set-up/troubleshooting, it doesn’t feel like a bad value at all. Highly recommended.

    Epson Nailed It!

    I am so happy that I stumbled upon this printer!! This new Epson EcoTank ET- 3850 is perfect for the at-home office, or for an at-home printer. The setup was super easy, and the printer allows you to print in many ways. I love that this printer comes with its own email address when you register it, and you can simply email the printer and it will print pictures or documents. I also love the app that you can download on either iOS or Android, it also makes printing super easy. I have never had a printer that can do double-sided printing before, but once you have one that can do automatic double-sided printing, you realize quickly what you were missing. I had to print out some forms for my child’s daycare and this printer didn’t skip a beat when printing on both sides, it's incredible. As I said previously, setting up the printer was easy and with the initialization test prints, they were spot on right out of the box. The tray holds 250 pages of paper, and the tray aligns the paper perfectly. The screen is 2.4 inches and is color, I really like how you can adjust the screen and buttons by pulling them out and up, that way the screen is facing you while looking down at it, but also can be put back vertically. This printer can literally do it all whether it be print, scan, or copy, and can be used from a mobile device, computer, email, Wi-Fi, or through the app. The most impressive component to this printer would have to be everything about the ink. Let’s talk about the ink!! This printer comes with 2 years’ worth of ink in the box! I still can’t get over how this printer takes and stores the ink. Epson knocked it out of the park with this idea. To fill the printer with ink, it's as simple as unscrewing the cap, and setting the bottle to its respected color, and watching the ink bubble down into the reservoir. There is enough ink to print roughly 12,000 pages! I am so happy to never have to buy another messy, fragile, and expensive cartridge again. This printer is the boss of at-home printers, an absolute powerhouse, and not one time has it given me any grief. Never once had the printer not connected and printed flawlessly. I am extremely pleased with this printer and can strongly recommend it to anyone with a home office, anyone who wants to print photos or documents while at home or away, or anyone who has kids with lots of school projects, you won’t be disappointed.

    My fist Epson Printer.

    Love the printer. I had a HP that was costing me a fortune on ink replacement because my wife is in nursing school and she need to print a lot of copy. So after about a Month of research I decided to go with the Epson Eco Thank ET-3850. Set up was a breeze with the App. My family really love this printer. For now Its working great. I read a comment about how this printer make a lot of noise when printing. That is true straight out of the box, but you can fix that problem by going through the setting on the printer not the App. There is a setting that you can turn on to make the printer print quiet.

    Capable Printer with Ink Tanks

    It is very easy to install this printer using the Epson Smart Panel cell phone app. The ability to print from your cell phone is very handy. Next, you go to your PC and install the utilities from the provided DVD disk. You will have the abilities to print and scan from your PC or initiate a scan/copy from the printer control panel. After you have connected the WiFi setup, it is a good idea to check and install the newest firmware, and there is a simple interface to do this.

    The installation, though simple, does take about 15 minutes from start to finish. You will install the ink, initialize the ink supply, align the print heads and set up your wireless connection. Don’t rush if it is your first try with the Eco Tank cartridges and don’t touch the exposed top of the supply bottles. Epson very smartly made it so that each color has a different ‘plug’ end such that you cannot put the wrong color ink into the reservoirs. Also the printer senses when the ink reservoir is filled and stops the input of ink – that was kind of magical – well done by Epson.

    I tested the printing, copying and scanning for black/white and color printing and was very pleased with the clarity and colors. Of course a big plus is the EcoTank system. The printer includes a larger bottle of ink for each color. I can’t test the claim of 2 years of ink yet, but I certainly observed the ink supplied was at least 5 times what you see in ‘normal’ ink cartridges. Note after the ink is initialized, the reservoirs have lowered because the ink is put into the connecting pipes etc., so don’t be concerned. If you had some ink left in each bottle (which I did have), you can add it at this point. Note to add ink you should use the add ink menu since it will ask you to ‘proceed’ when done so that the ink levels will be recalibrated by the printer.

    I’m very pleased with this printer from all functional angles and I am very happy about the EcoTank system which will reduce the time spent for buying/replacing cartridges and will reduce cost of printing for me. I do highly recommend this nice printer.

    Fast Print & Works with Chrome OS

    Average size foot print not small not big. Prints B/W and Color copies fast wireless.Fill bottles easy simple easy to fill tanks. Printed over 100 B/W office documents and 50 color invoices and ink tanks including initial charge only down 1 mark on gauge total of 4 marks on gauge window so I'm guessing 1 mark down would be still 3/4 full looks like long lasting ink supply with bottle fill tank system. Works with Chrome OS and not all printers do. Most functions commands work with keypad buttons picture screen is not really a touch pad control if your used to a touch screen controlling all functions. Wireless printing speed and response is excellent.

    Very Solid Value & Functionality

    As with most Brother products, I am satisfied with the MFC-L2710DW. Price-wise, it is a solid deal. And I prefer the Brother scanning software to Epson and Canon for its flexibility in creating custom scan settings. It is always a little quirky to install Brother drivers and software. And I think this installation may have impacted the older Control Center for my other Brother products, so I need to confirm if that is or is not the case. That said, it is full featured with laser printing, sheet-feed and flatbed scanning, and even faxing (which, I still use on occasion for sending to government and medical organizations). If you've used other Brother products, it's comfortable and familiar. And it's none of that stupid ink subscription nonsense. Also, the purchase and pickup process at Best Buy was fine, so I am happy there as well.

    DOA right out of the box.

    Looked good and I was excited to get it. Noticed damage to the box when I took possession at the delivery location. It was DOA out of the box. Probably fluke but when I powered it up it said, "PRINT UNABLE 01" on the screen. It would not come up and say "READY". I called and talked to the geek squad and they didn't have any useful ideas; actually wanted me to connect my computer and allow them to take remote control; I didn't even get that far...the multi-function Brother device was never connected to my PC! Brother website said there was a mechanical fault.

    It looked to be well designed and constructed with quality materials but I could not get it to come to READY; therefore, I felt any further attempts at configuration would be pointless. I had to return it.

    Outstanding printer wish I would have done color

    Wish I would have gotten the color printer but it was pricy overall. I do think this printer simple to setup and works outstanding. We were tired of inkjet cartridges and constant failures of my cheaper printers. I think you get what you pay for with the lower budget printers. This seems solid and working well! It’s worth the money if you don’t need color printing!

    The best brother you could ask for

    Absolutely love this brother. I've also owned several inkjet printers, but the problem was the color ink would dry out since I didn't really use it. I would need to buy a replacement for the color ink cartridge for the printer to work at all although I mostly needed to print in grayscale. This guy requires ink toner and lasts a very long time. I'm still using the same toner I purchase in Sept 2020 and here we are in April 2021. Makes my life so much easier to print shipping labels and documents quickly. I highly recommend it, plus it holds a ton a paper so there's no need to keep refilling it.

    Great buy!

    I am shocked at how much I love this printer/scanner - it was a great buy! Sharp printouts and sharp scans. I bought it so I could work from home during the lock down and it was the missing link to bring me up to full productivity from home. Painless set-up with my wifi and good print and scan speeds. The toner cartridge it comes with is just starting to whine that it's getting low and I have already printed off about 2 reams worth of pages! Even screaming for more toner, the printouts are still sharp. I have recommended it to several people I am so happy with it. It's easy to use and it's really good quality!

And I think this installation may have impacted the older Control Center for my other Brother products, so I need to confirm if that is or is not the case. That said, it is full featured with laser printing, sheet-feed and flatbed scanning, and even faxing (which, I still use on occasion for sending to government and medical organizations). If you've used other Brother products, it's comfortable and familiar. And it's none of that stupid ink subscription nonsense. Also, the purchase and pickup process at Best Buy was fine, so I am happy there as well.

    DOA right out of the box.

    Looked good and I was excited to get it. Noticed damage to the box when I took possession at the delivery location. It was DOA out of the box. Probably fluke but when I powered it up it said, "PRINT UNABLE 01" on the screen. It would not come up and say "READY". I called and talked to the geek squad and they didn't have any useful ideas; actually wanted me to connect my computer and allow them to take remote control; I didn't even get that far...the multi-function Brother device was never connected to my PC! Brother website said there was a mechanical fault.

    It looked to be well designed and constructed with quality materials but I could not get it to come to READY; therefore, I felt any further attempts at configuration would be pointless. I had to return it.

    Outstanding printer wish I would have done color

    Wish I would have gotten the color printer but it was pricy overall. I do think this printer simple to setup and works outstanding. We were tired of inkjet cartridges and constant failures of my cheaper printers. I think you get what you pay for with the lower budget printers. This seems solid and working well! It’s worth the money if you don’t need color printing!

    The best brother you could ask for

    Absolutely love this brother. I've also owned several inkjet printers, but the problem was the color ink would dry out since I didn't really use it. I would need to buy a replacement for the color ink cartridge for the printer to work at all although I mostly needed to print in grayscale. This guy requires ink toner and lasts a very long time. I'm still using the same toner I purchase in Sept 2020 and here we are in April 2021. Makes my life so much easier to print shipping labels and documents quickly. I highly recommend it, plus it holds a ton a paper so there's no need to keep refilling it.

    Great buy!

    I am shocked at how much I love this printer/scanner - it was a great buy! Sharp printouts and sharp scans. I bought it so I could work from home during the lock down and it was the missing link to bring me up to full productivity from home. Painless set-up with my wifi and good print and scan speeds. The toner cartridge it comes with is just starting to whine that it's getting low and I have already printed off about 2 reams worth of pages! Even screaming for more toner, the printouts are still sharp. I have recommended it to several people I am so happy with it. It's easy to use and it's really good quality!

    Great Entry Level Office Printer

    ---SETUP---

    The setup for the Brother DCP L2250 printer may require some help because of its bulky size and weight. It is recommended that you download the software via a computer instead of a mobile phone, so that’s what I did. Installation was a breeze and connecting the printer to my WiFi network was simple with the WPS button from my router and the WiFi button on the printer.

    ---FEATURES---

    The key feature of this printer is that it can hold 250 pages in the tray, can print double-sided, can print wirelessly, and is an all in one solution for businesses (print, scan, fax).

    ---PERFORMANCE---

    The performance of this printer is fast for small business needs. I’m a teacher and sometimes the school’s printer fails or is being used by many of my coworkers. I took this printer to my classroom and I printed 50 pages, front and back in about 5 minutes (it can do 36 pages per minute when single sided). The printer didn’t slow down and all pages came out with a great crisp look.

    ---EXPECTATIONS---

    The product meets my expectations. I tried out the scanner mode on a wrinkled certificate award that I had received but valued. I fed it through the top auto-document feeder and it scanned my certificate in full color perfectly. I then printed a copy just to test out the side feeder using cardstock and the printer didn’t fail to impress. The only downside I found to the printer is that in the button panel itself, it only had buttons for up and down arrows to navigate. The problem is that frequently, you are asked to make options that are left and right of each other with arrows pointing up or down as your choices. This gets confusing and slows down productivity, but it just takes some time to relearn it’s quirks. I would have prefered a whole crosspad (up, down, left, right arrows) for easier menu navigation when not printing directly from a computer or mobile phone.

    ---VALUE---

    The price for the printer in terms of value is quite competitive compared to other laser printers.

    ---APPROVAL---

    I highly recommend this product for people who own businesses and are looking for an all in one solution to their business needs. This printer uses toner instead of ink and can only print in black and white. If your business fits this criteria, it’s a great entry level office printer with a few odd choices for button options. Still, it won’t disappoint.

    Easy Set-Up, Solid Performance

    I have used only inkjet printers over the years and have always suffered from two problems: Either the ink would run out too quickly and I had to buy expensive replacements, or the ink would dry up in the dispenser if I went too long in between printing sessions. For these reasons I have always wanted a laser printer that uses a toner cartridge. I am stoked that I don't have to worry about ink for a long time as toner cartridges last forever.

    Pros:

    - Easy to set up. I used the printer menu to connect to my wireless network then installed the Mopria app on my phone and was printing wirelessly in no time flat.

    - As stated above, toner cartridges last forever. You don't have to worry about them drying up or running out after printing a few photos.

    - Can print on both sides of the paper

    Cons:

    - Black and white printing only. But I actually don't mind this as it's easy to upload and print photos at your local drug store or to use an online service to mail them to you. It is way cheaper than buying your own ink.

    - The menu display is poor. Printers from 10 years ago had interfaces like this one. While it's easy enough to navigate, it just seems like ancient technology. The buttons you press to navigate also seem cheap and feel like they could wear out over time.

    Overall, this is an excellent option for your printing needs. I recommend that everyone kick inkjet printers to the curb and go with laser printers, as you will save a lot of money and frustration.

    The all in one printer I have been waiting for...

    All in One Printer/Scanner/Copier that is perfect for home use.

    Seamlessly makes printing, scanning, and copying as easy as connecting to a network and pushing a button.

    SETUP:

    Setup is easy and consisted of plugging it in, connecting it to my Wi-Fi network, and downloading the software.

    There is also an option to use it in wired mode with a USB cable.

    GENERAL USE:

    Once connected to my Wi-Fi network, printing wirelessly is as easy as pushing a button from my laptop or wireless device. It is really that easy and convenient!

    I am even able to print from my iPhone and iPad! This is important because I spend as much or more time on my phone and tablet as I do on my laptop.

    Since this printer is wireless, you are not limited to placement in any specific area. It can be placed anywhere that is convenient or where you have space.

    PRINTING:

    The print quality is excellent and is much better than the average inkjet. It even looks good with the toner save mode on.

    It wakes up and prints quickly and quietly.

    COPYING:

    I only need to make copies from time to time, but it is very nice to have the ability to make copies at home.

    SCANNING:

    I am going to use the scan function frequently. This way I can get rid of documents that I only need an electronic copy of.

    Scanning quality is excellent and scans are in color.

    TONER:

    Since I don't need to print in color, there are many benefits to having a laser printer.

    The toner powder doesn't dry out, and page for page is cheaper than inkjet cartridges. This is especially important to me because I don't print a lot, and in the past I have wound up getting rid of inkjet cartridges that have dried out.

    VERDICT:

    This is the all in one device that I have been waiting for. I have had printers before but have been disappointed because they have not met my needs. I have now found the perfect all in one printer.

    USEFUL TIP:

    Turn on the toner save mode to make the toner last even longer. In this mode the print quality is suitable for most applications. I will only turn this mode off for the times I need the page to look really good.

    Great Affordable Choice for Home or Small Business

    Unboxing:

    Upon opening the very large box you will find the printer, AC cord and set up instructions with a disc.

    Footprint:

    Remarkably small, if a bit tall. It fit on my desk in the exact spot of my previous printer taking up 3 more inches of work surface real estate, while providing a flat scan and copy surface my previous printer lacked.

    Set up:

    Basic set up was quite easy, consisting of removing quite a few pieces of blue tape, installing the toner cartridge, plugging the printer in and pressing the power button.

    Home network set up was also very simple, after downloading the driver and software package from brother.com. The installer took a few moments to identify the printer on the local WiFi network and a few clicks later we were up and running.

    Google Cloud Print:

    Google Cloud Print is the main reason I got this printer. My older Brother printer didn't support Google Cloud Print and it drove me up the wall. After setting this printer up on a windows laptop and verifying that everything worked well, I grabbed my trusty Chromebook and set up Google cloud print. Once again, a few simple clicks had me up and running. Being able to print from my Chromebook was such a relief.

    MacBook:

    After setting up the Windows laptop and Chromebook, I tried my Apple Air Book. Setup was just as easy with the Apple device and printing was a breeze.

    Default Settings:

    The printer is preset to print two-sided documents. I found this to be a pleasant surprise and I kept the setting that way.

    Noise: Louder than I expected, but not at all disruptive. Just a bit louder than an inkjet printer.

    Toner:

    This is my second Brother laser printer and I can tell you the toner cartridges last a loooong time with average home use. My previous printer lasted almost 4 years before the toner ran out. The cartridges may seem expensive when it's time to replace them, but they are much cheaper than other inks on a page for page comparison.

    Overall:

    This printer is an excellent solution for a small business with its long-lasting cartridges and copy and scan abilities. It is more than sufficient for home use if you accept that little Johnny can get an A with a simple black and white book report. I prefer the monochrome devices to color, for savings. I have never printed photos and I never will. It's much more cost effective to print photos at the drug store or other stores that offer very competitive prices and fast service.

    Most people print emails, coupons, reports, and resumes. Sometimes we print interesting articles. None of these uses require color printing. If you find you printing habits don't actually require color inks, monochrome is the way to go. This Brother monochrome laser printer is a great choice. I highly recommend it.

    Excellent Printer with Robust Features!!!

    I was elated to be chosen to review this printer due in large part of my being an owner of its predecessor, Brother 2540 DCPL model. I purchased the 2540 in January of 2015 and I must state that it has served me and continues to serve me extraordinarily well! The 2540 was my second venture into the world of laser printers. I stumbled on this model by happenstance as I did some internet research (on various models) with the biggest feature in mind was the desire to have a network printer. This model (2540) met that requirement along with its other great features immensely. However, a known problem came to surface—it was the fact that the 2540 would go into a deep sleep and would not awaken unless the machine was powered off and back on. After doing extensive research, I was fortunate to find a solution by changing some settings. Unfortunately, Brother has discontinued the (2540) model and this (2550) model is its replacement. I really don’t see but a few major differences that are evident in the two they are:

    OLD-Model 2540 DCPL:

    -Print Speed at 30 ppm

    -Toner cartridge used is Brother genuine 630 & 660

    -Paperport Nuance 12

    NEW-Model 2550 DCPL:

    -Print Speed at 36 ppm

    -Toner cartridge used is Brother genuine 730 & 760 which are now chipped.

    -Paperport Nuance 14

    I can tell you the performance of this new machine alike the old machine is great as the machine prints out beautiful laser copies at a fast pace, scans clean and produces clean copies as well. The software, Paperport Nuance version 14 is very intuitive as it is user-friendly with many features such as folders for your scans and copies, a desktop for your scans, along with many other useful tools and features that enhances productivity.

    This is my sixth device from Brother, 5 of which are printers and 1 scanner. I can honestly say without reservation that Brother really manufactures quality products at affording pricing. Brother cares about their customers as they offer life time support of their products with excellent customer care support staff who really aims to resolve problems when they arise. Therefore, if you are in the market for a great printer with robust features at affordable pricing then please don’t look any further because Brother is at your side!

    Solid All-In-One Designed For Home Use

    Brother’s DCP-L2550DW is their new low-priced wireless all-in-one monochrome laser printer, copier, and (color) scanner - it does NOT have fax capability. It is basically an office-quality printer for home use. It has a document feeder that handles 50 pages, a large-capacity paper tray (250 pages), a manual feed slot for things like envelopes and card stock, can process duplex print jobs, and has a top print rate of 36 ppm. I have it setup as a wireless printer and find that the printer wakes up from sleep mode instantaneously for a new print job (it’s really impressive) - it can also be established as a wired network printer or can be used as a dedicated USB printer. Naturally, it allows printing from mobile devices. Brother estimates that standard toner cartridges will yield 1200 pages (high-capacity toner cartridges should yield 3000 pages) - the included toner is a low-capacity introductory (?) cartridge and will yield closer to 600 pages. It feels like it is solid and well-constructed - but be aware that it’s going to take up a lot of space - it’s large and kinda heavy (but surprisingly quiet).

    I only have one gripe-y comment about this heavy-duty beast - it is way better designed to be operated from a computer than from the machine itself. Navigation of modes and features from the machine’s control panel is done by way of arrows and an ‘OK” button and a two-line LCD display. It feels almost intentionally unintuitive - surely this design allowed Brother to keep costs down but since they already have LCD touchscreen technology developed and available in some of their other machines, I’m not sure how much more this would have affected the cost of this low-end model.

    Great printer

    It is the best decision I made to replace an inkjet printer. This does not print color but give you a lot more printed pages at high speed. The only problem I had was setting up with my laptop. It took me too much time to connect my laptop through WiFi. I had to get cable to connect it with the printer for initial setup. You also have to insert the cd in the laptop that comes with it to download the program. It was not easy for me, but the end result was good. Once I connected it with my laptop I did not have to connect my mobile phone with the printer it connected through the laptop itself. Overall it is a good printer for every day home or small business use.

    This printer is a workhorse like the last one.

    I had a Brother MFC 7860 for 8 years and never had any problems with it that weren't easily resolved. The issues I had were extremely few and far between. I could always count on this printer to get the job done.

    I run a small financial services business and the printer needed to be able to handle heavy duty printing on a regular day to day basis. This was key and necessary for the smooth running of my business.

    It finally gave up and I needed to get a replacement.

    Because I was so impressed with the performance of my last printer I only researched Brother printers hoping to find as close a match to it as possible.

    I replaced it with this printer and I am more than pleased with it's performance. It has performed equally as well as my old printer and I feel more than confident it will last for a very long time.

    I have not had any of the problems that are mentioned in the negative reviews.

    I would highly recommend this printer.

    Recommended

    I had planned to set up a wireless computer to printer connection, but that proved elusive, intermittent at best, and hopeless when the printer was asleep. Was planning to return unit, ugh (which is why I bought local, from Best Buy). Then I just plugged the printer into the (service provider) ATT box with an ethernet cable. Entered ATT password on printer screen. Installed Brother print/scan app. Added printer to computer's list. Everything after that worked flawlessly. I can print from downstairs via computer wireless connection to ATT box to printer; the printer wakes up immediately.

    Ignore the supplied CD, just get the latest driver from Brother support, then go to your system's app store for the print/scan app.

    Note: as you install the drivers and software on various computers, you may see each time a screen to re-enter the password for your service provider connection. Exit that. You only have to tell the printer once.

    Printer is fast, not noisy, not huge, not heavy. I like it.

    Outstanding overall experience in my search for a good quality home printer. Came to Best Buy in Boca and the service professional helped me through the entire process in an expedient fashion. He listened to my specific needs, discussed alternatives and I was able to quickly come to a decision on the Brother Printer. He checked me out using VISA debit cards I had available along with cash for the remaining balance. The product seems high quality from my initial usages and the client experience at the store is one I've shared with several others. When I am in the market for any items that Best Buy offers, this person is my go to guy. Huge asset for your firm

    Awful with graphics/photos

    I returned it August 2021. Awful BANDING and VERY DARK when printing graphics. It was fine with text so if you are just interested in text, it shouldn't t be a problem -- which is why I gave it two stars.

    I've been used B&W Brother laser printers since 2008 and never had this problem. My 2nd one, a 7360, is still working and prints graphics and photos fine -- meaning no banding and tonally is what is on the computer monitor.

    After I saw the banding/darkness -- I googled and found pro reviews which mention these problems. One is PCMag and the other other is itpro.

    Good not great

    I'm a trucker and I use this printer/scanner on the road. First the good: It is a well made printer and so far it has handled the shaking and bouncing of being in a Big Rig, prints quickly and quietly. Easy to connect to my mobile hot spot and finds my laptop and cell phone with no issues. The not so good: Battery life is just ok and the power cord that's included is a bit on the short side. Print quality is also just ok. The printer is pricey an missing(in my opinion) a slide out paper guide on the output side(at bottom of printer). The scanning if good but the paper feeder can be finicky. So far the printer has performed well trouble free. I will update this post if the printer fails the Big Rig bounce test long term.

    Downsize Printer Without Sacrificing Quality

    This printer is a good option for those looking to downsize from a larger printer and have the ability to relocate it as needed. Love the wireless capability and the print quality is great! Double-sided printing is not a problem. I wish it could catch printed documents and I haven’t tried scanning photographs through the feed. I also like the fact it can run on its battery. Software is a little quirky at times, resulting in configuration tweaks here and there, but works as well as it needs to. Definitely recommend this mobile printer.

    HP Office Jet 250 is Great

    Definitely a 5 star on this printer, it is light weight, compact and you can take it anywhere; prints fast and gets the job done; one of the best things that I love about this printer is that I don't have to keep it plugged in, which is convenient when you are on the go; I can print in the car, on the train, and even on the plan; moreover, when I say print, I don't mean wifi, this printer has a direct connect which gives you the ability to directly connect and print; this would be great for those in college

    great printer for multiple page printing

    It is a workhorse printer as it can print multiple pages at one time. It is convenient for transporting to and from meetings. It produces a quality printed page. Well worth the full price or discounted amount. It is not of a flimsy construction but a good strong construction. Its multiple usage such as printing and copying makes it an extremely necessary piece of equipment for any business big or small.

    Great travel printer

    Purchased this printer to use for traveling. I originally bought the Officejet 200 and quickly returned it to get this one with the built-in scanner. My only complaint is that if you want to use it via wireless in a hotel you will need to have your own router or set your phone as a hotspot. Other than that it is a great printer.

    Impressive Quality and Speed

    This machine definitely has the performance part down pretty good. All the main features work great. I am including some pictures I printed from my phone, slightly edited with the HP Smart app. Some pictures that I scanned and printed with all the default settings, the originals on the left, and the reprints on the right. A comparison picture of a photo printed on photo paper vs plain paper. As well as a print out of some of the Alexa skills that can be used with the printer.

    The convenience is missing during the initial setup, but restored afterwards.The printer is pretty easy to use, once everything is set up. Which makes it difficult to understand why setting this printer up is such a hassle.

    The entire setup process is kinda tedious and forced. If this printer came with free ink for 5 years, then I could understand the extra hoops for setup and use. With that said, I am a little offended by the lack of freedom surrounding some aspects of this machine. Which is a complete shame, because the printer really is quite nice. It prints extremely fast text documents, and full color glossy photos. You can fax to and from the machine, with a landline, and send faxes directly from your smartphone. It is even pretty easy to add to Alexa or Google assistant. It took less time to set it up with Alexa than it did with HP+ . Linking your printer with Alexa adds the ability to print lists, and some documents on your phone or stored with Alexa. You can even activate some tasks like scan and copy with voice control. With the addition of some more skills, you can print coloring pages, comics, games, puzzles, and recipes, through Alexa's voice control features.

    As soon as you turn on the printer, it asks you a few simple questions, then it prompts you to download the HP Smart app on either your pc or smartphone, to finish the setup. It appears that registering your account with the printer is the only way to move forward from here. If you already have an HP account or don't mind signing up for the HP+ service then it shouldn't be a big deal to finish the setup. Afterall you get an extra year's worth of the manufacturer warranty, and 6 months of free ink( to support 100 pages per month of printing). If you prefer not to register right now, you can bypass this screen by pressing the "?" on the bottom of the touchscreen, then pressing "cancel" on the next 2 screens, and then follow the next few prompts to get to the main menu. Here you can set up your wifi and change any setting you want. The register prompt will pop up again soon restricting some functions, so you will probably want to just register to make things easier for yourself.

    One of the good things about the HP Smart app is that it is close to the same layout and function on the computer as it is on the smartphones. Everything is split up by tiles, and has access to account and individual printer settings. Here you can check your page usage for the month, change plans, and review subscription information. All the printer functions like scanning, printing, and faxing can be activated by the tiles. You can even create and activate shortcuts directly from the app tile. Creating shortcuts is actually very easy and can be done in seconds. I'm usually emailing whatever I have to scan, so I made 2 shortcuts for scanning items as searchable PDFs, and emailing pictures.

    Another drawback to this printer is the price of ink - if you choose not to join HP+ , you could be spending around $100 for all 4 cartridges.Just as an FYI 3rd party ink will void the HP+ benefits, and most likely disable your machine( if the software can detect the non-HP ink cartridges).So if you enjoy or think you will like HP's instant ink program, then this is definitely the printer for you. The HP+ program claims to be able to save up to 50% off on ink.

    I have been printing for a few days, and I am almost out of yellow ink, and the other color cartridges are half empty.To be fair, I have printed 12 ( 8.5x11 photos ) , 10 ( 4x6 photos), and about 50 text document pages, so I am already near my max pages printed for the month.

    If you print more than 100 pages per month, you might want to buy the next plan up, otherwise you spend $1.00 for every 10 pages over the 100 for the month.

    The Best feature of this printer is the speed. It can print just about any full size photo(8.5"x11") at high quality in 1minute and 30seconds, give or take a few more seconds based on the photo. For normal quality settings, it only takes 23 seconds to print an 8.5"x11" photo. It will also print 4"x6" photos in 30 seconds, at high quality.

    Even scanning is fast for this machine, it can scan at 300dpi, a 8.5"x11" photo in 10 seconds.It even offers double sided printing and scanning. With scan resolutions of 75, 150, and 300dpi.

    Part of the reason this printer is so quick is because of the 1.2Ghz Processor ,and the 512MBs of memory.

    This machine can print black only, or color pages in draft quality at 32PPM. On normal to high quality, it will print black at 22PPM, and color at 18PPM. In contrast most other printers print black at 13 to 15PPM, and color at 11 to 13PPM.

    The HP 9015e prints HD quality prints, with 1200x1200 rendered dpi -black and 4800x1200 optimized dpi -color(using HP Advanced Photo Paper).The printer can use any media sizes from 3" x 5" up to 13" x 18", at 16lbs to 110lbs. This leaves it open to a lot of different potential projects.

    Print from anywhere works pretty good, as long as your printer is registered and linked to your account and app. There is a printer setting in the app for "print anywhere" that you will have to enable to use the service first, and it's that easy. Just use the HP Smart app like you would normally and select what and how to print it.

    Scanning from the PC gets you three automated features, Auto-enhancements , Auto-heal, and Auto-orientation.Advanced Scan is coming to the mobile version soon, which will let you scan multiple objects in one picture shot. Each item will be saved as it's own page, and can be saved as searchable text files. The Advanced Scan also lets you scan books, and will automatically correct curved pages to separate and straighten them out. Auto Heal will remove distracting marks and any other imperfections in your photos.max scan size is 8.5" x 14" with ADF

    and 8.5" x 11.7" flatbed

    Faxing is pretty simple, just like with most machines, you enter the phone number and hit send. If you don't have a physical fax cover page, you can create one from the touch screen. You can fax from the flatbed scanner, your phone, or the ADF.The ADF will hold up to 35 pages for faxing or scanning, just keep in mind that if any of your papers are warped or crinkled in any way it might cause pages to stick together when running through the ADF. I always double check my page count, to the printed fax summary reports, to make sure everything went through ok. The 9015e has an impressive 100 speed dial slots, and can store up to 100 pages to fax, just keep in mind it takes about 4 seconds per page to fax something. The fax resolution can be adjusted up to 300 x 300.You can send unlimited faxes from your phone for the trial period, after the trial period the faxes will be limited for free subscriptions.

    You are also eligible for free incoming faxes for 12 months. To save paper on incoming faxes you can enable the 2-sided fax printing.

    Overall the print quality and speed of this printer is really exceptional for an office printer, and very good even compared to a photo printer. The HP Smart software is pretty easy to use, to resize, crop or edit files or pictures. ( just make sure you are using the right print settings before printing for either a document or photo ). The addition of faxing from your phone, creating searchable pdfs, and tailored shortcuts really add back to the convenience of this printer. I am still pretty impressed with how accurate the color matching is on prints compared to original scanned images.

    High End Printer That Blends in with Daily Life

    Printer’s are a necessary evil for home life and can be difficult to work with. This HP 9015 Printer really breaks that mold by being so easy to use that it doesn’t feel like a nuisance to use!

    PROS:

    - The Printer is very well designed! I like the white/gray design and although it has a lot of features, it still feels compact and just blends in with your home or office by not being an eyesore.

    - Setting up was very easy! After turning on and putting the ink in, I used the HP Smart App from my iPad. This App made it very smooth and easy to use. Very happy with the setup!

    - After setting up, this printer is easily accessible through WiFi from any Windows 10 computer as well as my phone/iPad with the HP Smart App. So printing/scanning was very easy after that!

    - To be clear: you do not NEED the HP Smart App to print from a mobile device. I was able to print over WiFi with my iPad Pro without using the App. So you can print without the app but using other features via a mobile device you need the HP Smart App.

    - Can confirm this printer prints double sided!! Nice feature!

    - Overall it has a lot of nice features needed for a home/office printer. Print’s fast with no errors, scanner, and copier. It will be very useful.

    CONS:

    - I like how everything is wireless but if for some reason you wanted a hard connection (which you can do), you would have to buy the cord separately . The Printer only comes with Power Cord and Ink.

    - I can’t think of many. For the price it takes care of everything I need.

    BOTTOM LINE: For my uses, this printer hits everything on the head. It’s ease of use is truly great and makes printing/scanning a seamless process.

    HP Office Jet Pro 9015e with HP+

    HP+ gives you 6 months of free ink and 1 extra year of warranty, when you register for HP+.

    This printer is good for the small business. The 9015e scans your documents faster and does duplex scanning and printing. The black and white documents print at about 22 pages per minute. The color is a bit slower at 18 pages per minute. The 9015e comes with a document feeder. The 9015e is either wireless or USB. The setup is easily completed using the HP Smart App. Open the app with the computer and printer on the same Wi-Fi and follow the on-screen directions. The intelligent self-healing dual band Wi-Fi automatically detects and fixes it's Wi-Fi problems without user input.

    HP+ Smart print system keeps your printer ready to print, better security than previous models. With HP+ your get 6 months of ink free. You must register for this service and provide a credit card number for payment on a monthly basis and HP will ship ink depending on which plan you selected during set-up. HP also sends you a return mailer so you can return your used cartridges. Recycled and kept out of the landfills. HP+ does require the user to only utilize HP branded ink cartridges. You can cancel this plan and return to buying your cartridges. However, please note the HP+ ink cartridge’s hold more ink than extra capacity cartridges. There is also one caveat, once you cancel the automatic ink you can no longer use the HP+ cartridges.

    There are on-line resources available to assist you with addition tasks and set up on other devices.

    The quality of the copies and scans is excellent. Printouts in both color and black and white crisp and no bleeding of the ink. The Color touch screen tilts for ease of use. The controls are easily identified on the color screen.

    The Pros of this machine are many. However, I did have a problem with set-up and had to call Support. The phone was answered quickly, and the problem resolved in a few minutes.

    The 9015e is put together well and you can tell the quality of the workmanship.

    I would recommend the HP Office Jet Pro 9015e with HP+ to family and friends.

    Feature packed all-in-one, great performance

    I am coming from a Brother printer that is pushing 10 years old at this point. It held up well over time but I was due for a more modern upgrade.

    Initial setup of this HP Officejet Pro was quick and easy. The mobile application and Windows HP Smart software was easy to use, and I had my printer connected to my wireless network and Google Drive in minutes. Prints are crisp, clear, and fast. I also noticed that this unit works fairly quietly, which is nice. Scanning features are great, and easy to perform with the mobile app, save as a pdf, and email without having to use a computer. The computer software is also full-featured, but it is convenient to control everything from a phone in front of the printer as well. Options and settings can be changed on the fly without walking back and forth to your computer. The touchscreen interface on the printer is quick and easy, reminds me of an older Android phone, it works well. Overall I am happy with this printer and would recommend it to anyone running a small business, or just needs a step up in quality and features for overall home use.

    Nice all in one printer. Great for a home office

    Opening the box, I find the printer, 4 ink cartridges (black, cyan, yellow, and magenta…as usual), a power cord and install instruction as well as an HP+ brochure. It all looks complete and ready to install except for taking the tape off. But wait, what’s this grey button and black piece with a spring on it. Oh man, I hope it’s not broken. I examine the printer and flip it upside down, then I see the hole in the outfeed tray. I pull it out and press the other button. The tray comes out and I can see its twin on the underside. I take a few minutes to orientate the two pieces and after a second try, I get it to click in. The button has a big and small tab and goes in one way, at least that’s how it looked to me. Anyway, now ready to install.

    I plug the unit in and the printer powers up. It goes through a few steps and asks to connect with my network via Wi-Fi. That’s when I discover I’ve been running my main desktop just on a LAN cable. I run the Windows troubleshooter and it can’t help. It says to try a driver, so off to the HP site to find the Wi-Fi driver for my model. I download it and tada, Wi-Fi appears in my network. I connect and it sees the printer in the HP Smart app. I don’t need my phone to install the printer. I click on the discovered printer and it starts setup. As it does, I go to the HP+ webpage, and based on my needs, I don’t want the service. To be completely honest, I was on the fence as I read about the service and I think I would have signed up if doing so didn’t lock the printer into using only genuine ink. I like the savings it offered, and the 3x roll-over credit is allowed, but as these printers age, I like the option to buy 3rd party ink just as a cheap printing option. Many times, I print articles or store coupons and I hate to use good expensive ink for those types of jobs. If HP would have left that option available, I would have signed up. So, after saying no to HP+, the printer asks to print an alignment sheet. I click yes and it takes a bit and seems to stall, but it finally gets the job done and then asks to scan the sheet. The instruction in the 2.7” touchscreen display wasn’t the easiest to read. I wasn’t sure which direction to turn the page, although it was easy to see the top left corner was the alignment spot. I chose a direction and figured it would let me know if I needed to flip it and rescan. No problem though, it said finished and ready to print. I must say that this is probably the easiest printer I’ve installed in Windows and I have 3 HP printers running through the HP Smart app, as well as 3 other branded printers currently running.

    What else can I say about a printer? Well, the construction is your basic printer build. Lots of plastic and in my case a small part lying in the box waiting for me to reinstall it. The touchscreen CGD is nice and responsive. The paper feed tray is okay, but the spring-loaded (catch??) is a bit of a pain. I need to remember to hold it down when I return it. Without a spring-like many of my other printers, I just push it back in. I do like that the unit leans toward connecting with Wi-Fi, but still offers a LAN port and USB port. The printer doesn’t come with either cable, so be ready with the correct cable if this is your preferred choice. It has a convenient USB port on the side, not sure why USB 2.0 still, but maybe that’s all one needs to print with. I just figured anything new would offer USB 3.0 first. This model does have automatic two-sided printing and a 35-page auto-feeder. Oh, and I forgot because I don’t use it, but it can fax and has the two phone ports in the back. I haven’t had it but a couple of days, but it says it has auto healing Wi-Fi, so it tries to reconnect if the connection is lost.

    One last thing I forgot to add during setup. At the very end, it allowed me to email myself a link to use on my other computers, tablets, and phone. I sent it to my daily email account and then whatever device I’m using, I can just click and install that device and print wirelessly. Nice.

    Oops, one more thing. Not sure why and if it matters, but in the install and HP Smart app, the printer is listed as HP OfficeJet Pro 9010 series. Since it's a 9015e, that 9010 messed me up for a second. Just FYI.

    Easy to use, yet High End Wireless Printer

    For people who work from home or have small businesses, having a reliable printer is still really important! And with the way that we are starting to work, we need one that thinks ahead and is very easy to use at a moments notice. The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e Printer has truly met my needs and beyond!

    PROS:

    - I really like the look of this printer. The shape, the white/gray tones, and the overall design just give it a modern feel while not feeling too clunky or out of place.

    - Setup was truly a breeze! The printer is largely ready to go besides plugging it in, connecting it to the internet, and putting in the ink cartridges. It just was really nice to have no assembly required and it being ready to go so quickly.

    - The HP Smart app (which is on Windows, Android, iPhone/iPad) is really a fantastic tool for this printer. It helps you manage everything on there, shows ink levels, and is just a well developed app to use.

    - I can’t stress how nice the wireless aspect is of this printer. Being able to easily access the printer from my phone, tablet, or laptop really makes getting this done so much easier then having to be physically connected to the printer or wirelessly adding the printer through an over complicated process.

    - Once set up, the printer works great! For printing it is very fast and accurate, while also being able to print double sided.

    - It can scan/copy things through the document feeder or through the actually scanner which is really nice versatility to have, especially if you need to scan a lot of documents at once.

    - The Color touchscreen is also really nice to have! It adds a nice feature if needed, shows the printing status, but blends in nicely when you don’t need it.

    - HP+ is included in with this and I am quite impressed with it! Basically its a service that will ship you more ink when you need it without having to think about it, plus they offer ways to recycle your old cartridges which I think is a great sustainable idea. It’s a really nice feature to have to help you be more productive with your printer.

    CONS:

    - I don’t have any issues with this printer that I can think of or that I have run into so far. For my needs it works great.

    BOTTOM LINE:

    - If you work from home or have a small business and need a printer that can do it all for you, look no further than this one! The printing, scanning, copying features all work really well plus its highly accessible with its wireless hookups and HP+ membership along with it. I have really enjoyed using this printer and I think you will too.

    Nice!

    This printer IS an all in one. I can print from anywhere, scan to my computer, and copy.

    So what's different than any other all in one you ask. 1) touch screen navigation 2) true color representation 3) does it pretty fast.

    I'm in school, online and have to print off a ton of reading material (yea I'm ole school - see it, touch it, feel it), it's great that I don't have to wait forever until its finished. Loading paper is very easy, the arm on the paper tray can be retracted when not needed.

    I haven't tried pictures or card stock yet, but I'm fairly sure that this Pro will come through .

    Love this printer! I’m a Travel Agent and ship gifts to my client all the time. With this printer I’m able to make labels for my gifts bags, print shipping labels and travel documents all in one. Plus it connects to all my devices (iPhone and MacBook). My purchase came with 12 months free ink! I haven’t even ran out of ink yet and HP has sent me replacements.

    Fast, easy to use and great quality prints!

    Great SOHO all in one printer. Its fast and does everything you want, prints, copies, scans, faxes documents in black or color.

    It was extremely easy to setup, just turn on, open the inner door, and then install each one of the included inks (3 for color and one black), afterwards it will ask you to print an alignment page which you then have it scan so it can tune up the printer heads. Afterwards, you can finish the setup either on a PC by downloading the HP smart app from the windows app store or you can do it also on your phone downloading the same app from your phone’s app store. I chose to do it with my PC, it will detect the printer and then ask you to enter your Wi-Fi credentials, so the printer connects to your network. Then you can create a HP account (or if you already have one login) and then it will automatically give you an extra year of warranty and 12 months of free ink replacement!! (it does it in the form of 6 months free and then gives you $30 credit, which is worth another 6 months), you do have to enter a credit card info (does not charge you, however it’s needed for when the 12 month free period ends, then it will auto ship you ink, and you can choose your plan, and the great thing is it does it based on printed pages.

    The printer is amazingly fast, and I love the dual sided print feature, that makes me save so much on paper! Blacks are inky black, and colors are vibrant and defined (paper quality also matters here, so get a quality ink printer paper).

    I love that the scanner/copy feature has two ways to do it, either with the traditional scanner flat bed, or it also has an auto feeder tray, so you do not have to do one paper at the time, it automatically feeds the scanner/copier. It also has fax port; however, I have not tried it yet, I have not had the need to fax something, but I am sure it is like any other fax machine.

    Just an FYI, on my initial setup, the printer downloaded a firmware update and upon restart the HP smart app on my PC would not recognize the printer anymore, and then the printer on screen display would keep saying I had to finish setup, which I had done already, it would not let me print anything due this. I battled it out a hole night, doing a factory reset, re setting up the printer and nothing. I gave up. However, then next morning I decided to try it out again (I had unplugged it for the night) and I plugged it back again and everything was back to normal. So, I think unplugging it and plugging it back again made ok after the update, so If you have this same issue, remember to restart it like that after you see a firmware update (make sure it finishes it completely, do not interrupt it!).

    Printing from everywhere!

    HP Office-jet Pro 8035 All-in One Printer is a smart and easy printer to use. I have had many printers over the years and this printer is without a doubt the easiest one I’ve ever set up.

    Out of the box all I had to was follow a link in the instructions on my IPhone or computer and download the HP printer app. Once downloaded the App walks you through the setup process. The printer can be setup through a standard printer cable directly to your computer, Network cable or wirelessly for multiple users to use.

    This is a full service printer with printing, scanning, copying and is even Alexa enabled. It has a clear fairly large LED touch screen to work the scanner, copy functions, view ink levels and other setup tools. As a bonus it includes free 8 months of Insta Ink which is great.

    The print quality is excellent and very quick and is the best HP home office printer I have ever had.

    Big Disappointment...

    Having a vast amount of experience with HP printing devices over the years, I can confidently state that potential purchasers should try to avoid this product for a while. HP is known for clunky software/firmware implementation and there are vast resources available which can be read online & support this historical context.

    Immediately upon setting up my printer, I went through the steps of installing the various software packages available on their support website. There's what is called a "Full" package, there are "Universal" and "Basic" driver packages as well. HP installation routines will commonly crash or become stuck with no apparent reason. To compound the issues further - that I faced - the internal printing mechanism produced some horrendous sounds when it went through it's initial 'power-up' sequences for the very first time. I heard what sounded like some extreme mechanical collisions or slamming.

    Once I ran through several install/uninstall attempts I was finally able to get the printer to work properly utilizing the "Universal" driver package. Printing, scanning, copying and communication to the MFP's internal configuration all appeared somewhat normal. I did perform a firmware update along the way but this new firmware didn't fix any of the error codes I experienced.

    When I queried the "event log" of the printer (through an Ethernet connection), I discovered critical failure notifications. I've attached the screen shot of what I first observed. I also receive consistent error messages that the printer is out-of-paper at the end of print jobs. Something is terribly amiss here. I've attached a screen capture of that as well.

    HP Smart is an application that will automatically install in the background of a Windows 10 machine, and this software will not only provide error messages and configuration settings - but it also links into something called the HP print & scan doctor. Essentially a self help diagnostic app. The HP Smart app is a prime mover in the popping up 'out-of-paper' notifications in the Win 10 notification tray.

    I do have some good things to say about this printer.

    It's faster than the M426 generation and looks to employ more power saving and toner saving feature controls than it's predecessors. Perceived sound can be highly subjective but my particular unit seems much louder than older HP MFP's I've used. Perhaps this is related to some internal, mechanical issues.

    The Good:

    Faster and noticeably more precise toner application - translated - clearer printing.

    Compact in overall size & work space footprint.

    The Bad:

    Poor software implementation and a tedious installation experience.

    Louder in operation.

    False positives with the consistent, out of paper error messages.

    Prone to "Fuser Drive (internal hardware) 50.04.00 Errors".

    I can not recommend the HP - LaserJet Pro MFP M428fdw printer at the present time.

    HP B&W printer comes through again... five stars!

    First off, I love HP and its products. They are usually dependable and this one was no different. From the purchase to the setup (of course, I casually glanced at the directions), it only took 10 minutes to have it up and running. I was printing pages shortly after that. I love that it can scan, fax, and read from a USB thumbdrive. It was an upgrade from a previous HP that I had and I could not be happier. I love the sleek design and simple "footprint" that it has... it can set anywhere in a smaller apartment or in a corner of a home office. HP (so far) has proven to be a sturdy, reliable, and affordable option to home printing. Enjoy it.

    Great, great, office printer

    The LaserJet Pro MFP M428fdw is surprisingly compact for being capable of so much. I was expecting a huge box, but when it arrived I was pleasantly surprised by the small footprint. Setup was easy. I used the printer's touchscreen to set up a wifi connection (a USB connection could also be used). It connected easily to my internet, and my mobile devices saw it immediately as a printer on the network. I printed documents from an iPad and an Android phone, and that was before I did the PC setup! Loved the connectivity. There is an option if you are an IT person and want to set the printer up for an office environment to do so. Since I am using this in my personal office, I did not try setting up the office environment option.

    I went to HP's site and downloaded the PC software, including the scanning tool. What's great about this, the printer can scan two-sided documents via the auto-feeder and send them to any computer that you have the scanning software installed on, as well as handheld devices. I tried this with several documents, and only had one glitch where I had to power the printer off and then back on because the scanner locked up. The restart corrected the issue, and I haven't had one since.

    I love the fact that this unit can print two-sided copies as fast as other units I have had that only print one side. I printed a 17-page peer-review on leadership studies in less than 7 seconds (double-sided). Simply impressive! Print quality was outstanding. I had several other folks send docs to be printed. Both the Macs and the Windows PC's we tested found the printer on my network immediately and printed to it without having to do anything special.

    I tested the fax component of the machine (yes, people do still actually use those...) by faxing a 6-page document to my workplace fax machine and then back. No issues getting dial-tone, no issues sending the fax, and I set it up to print me a success page after it was sent.

    In an office environment, or even if you need a high-speed, quality printer at home to scan, fax and print double-sided black and white copies, you can't do much better than this HP. I can't think of an all-in-one printer that I have liked as much as this one, thus the 5-star review. Highly recommended!

    Fast and complicated

    HP is my go-to company for printers, and sometimes, scanners. The MFP M428fdw is a fast, very good quality printer, scanner and fax machine. I didn’t test the fax because...who is faxing?

    The build quality is high and it seems robust enough for home, SoHo and small office environments.

    Scanning and printing are fast, with very good quality.

    Downsides? The app you download has struggled with connectivity for me. This may not be the same for you, depending on your WiFi and OS situation. I’m running Windows 10 Pro over a WiFi sub network of our core Ethernet network.

    The unit is attractive, quick, quiet and I’m not raving about it, but I will recommend the product.

    Great Connected All In One

    This is a great printer and scanner. The HP Smart App works perfectly with this printer and I love scanning things to my phone using the app.

    It is black and white only and the paper tray is letter only (you have to manually feed longer sheets). I also had issues with scale when printing from my phone using the native Apple print function (easily fixed by printing from the HP app).

    This printer is very compact for everything it does. It has a slower quiet mode, but it is already much quieter than my other printer in normal mode. It also is very nice looking and I had no issues with using the touch screen.

    A USB cable is included and a phone line for the fax. I didn’t need them thanks to being able to print wirelessly and scan using my phone. It also has a USB port for a thumbdrive.

    I would definitely recommend this multifunction printer based on the app and ease of use.

    Everything you need for a small/home office!

    I've been looking for a laser printer that would not break the bank for lots of printing on a small home office. Finally found it!

    Box was a little heavy, but the printer feels compact and solid. It has a scanner, printer fax. They even included the necessary toner to start printing. Setup was easy. Make sure you have an internet connection, because the software has to be downloaded. But after doing so, the install was easy, I was able to set it up with my wifi network and now I can print from anywhere.

    Print quality is great, as expected from a laser printer and fast. I just looked around and the replacement toners are around $59 to $79, but they last long. The LCD screen was big and easy to read, even for my aging eyes!

    I highly recommend this all in one for anyone with a small office/home office!

    Great Color Laser Printer!

    This is a very solid laser printer! It does several things really well, and when it comes to the core functionality of printing, you will not be disappointed!

    Setup:

    Setup was very easy and straightforward. The quick start guide provided very clear instructions, and unpacking the product was easy. Just had to pull off some tape and plug it in. The toner was already installed and ready to go. Connecting to WiFi was super quick and easy, and installing on my computer was a breeze.

    Print Quality and Performance:

    When it comes to the quality of prints and the speed at which this printer prints documents, you will not be disappointed. As I would expect from a laser printer, text and other content printed is very crisp and high quality. Additionally, the print speed of this machine is great! I printed a 4 page document using the automatic duplex (double-sided) printing feature that this machine has and it printed in around 45 seconds.

    Compared to my other printer which is an inkjet, this printer prints much faster and at a noticeably higher quality. As far as colors go, this printer also does a great job. I printed several documents with colors and was quite impressed with the quality of the colors printed. Sometimes laser printers can struggle when it comes to color, but the colors that were printed from this machine looked realistic and of great quality.

    Scanning:

    Overall, this printer does a great job at scanning. I tested using the document feeder for scanning and it scans super fast, which is a really big plus! The quality was also great.

    That being said, there are a few capabilities/improvements that I wish this printer had when it comes to scanning. First of all, it does not have automatic duplex scanning. I believe there may be a manual option for duplex scanning in Windows, but I have a Mac and did not see this option in the HP Smart app on my Mac. There is a way to scan documents to PDF and then combine and re-order them to your liking in Preview on the Mac, but that is not as convenient as automatic duplex scanning. This is not a huge deal, but it would have been a really beneficial feature to include with this machine.

    Additionally, while I do really like HP’s scan to email feature, it seems that this capability is long overdue for an upgrade with better integration with email services like Gmail. In order to get this feature to work, you have to set up an app-specific password for the printer to access your Gmail account, as well as enable “Allow less secure apps”. While it works great once set up, these steps for configuring are both less than optimal when it comes to security, and they are complicated for most people to set up. I have an HP inkjet printer that is over 6 years old that required configuration for this feature in the exact same way, so I was hoping that by now this would have been improved.

    Size and Looks:

    This is a very big printer! Be prepared with a large space to put it. Additionally, it is very heavy. Considering that this is a color laser printer, it makes sense that it is big and heavy, but you definitely want to make sure you have somewhere to fit this beforehand. If you are looking for a compact printer, this is not the printer for you.

    When it comes to looks, the printer looks very clean and professional.

    Other Features and Thoughts:

    5GHz WiFi:

    I was really glad that this printer comes with dual band WiFi capability. It is great that I can connect this wireless printer to my 5 GHz WiFi network. It seems that many printers still come with 2GHz only, so I was really glad to see 5 GHz on this printer. I noticed that when printing to this machine, it seemed to receive and start print jobs very quickly, and I think the 5 GHz definitely contributed to how quick this machine received and completed print jobs.

    Touchscreen:

    The touchscreen on this printer is a great addition and works really well! Touchscreen printers are so much easier to set up and maintain since you can input and update WiFi settings as well as other important settings quickly and easily right on the printer itself.

    Machine Software and Firmware:

    As I mentioned, I have an HP inkjet printer that is over 6 years old. The interface on this printer looks very similar and must be based off the same software, which feels a bit dated to me. It’s not bad, but I would have expected something more recent on a brand new HP model. The local web interface for configuring features and changing settings on this printer looks especially dated. Despite the dated software on the machine, it interfaces very well with the HP Smart software which is very modern. It also works with all of the latest features, including ePrint, AirPrint, etc. So, overall, the software on the machine is more than sufficient.

    Reliability and Build Quality:

    In all of my testing, this printer was very fast and reliable! The software and firmware are reliable and it handled all print and scan jobs very quickly.

    When it comes to build quality, this machine feels like it is a really solid and well-made machine, so I would expect it to last a long time. That being said, I wish that HP offered a better standard warranty than just 1 year. This machine is not cheap, and I would have liked to have seen more from HP showing that they stand behind their product.

    Toner Cost:

    I looked at the pricing on toner for this machine, and it is expensive! A 3150 yield black toner cartridge alone will run you almost $100 from HP. So, definitely keep that in mind. While this is an expensive printer, I do feel that it is well-made and built to last, not to mention that is does an awesome job when it comes to print quality.

    Conclusion:

    Overall, this is a great printer! My biggest disappointment with this machine is the lack of automatic duplex scanning capability, but other than that, it handles all core functionalities incredibly well. Pages printed are crisp and of great quality, printing and scanning was really fast, scans came out in great quality, and the printer was very responsive. Additionally, it includes automatic duplex printing capability, which is a really important feature to have. When using the duplex printing, it was really fast as well. This printer also goes above and beyond other printers with 5GHz WiFi capability.

    I do feel that HP could have used newer software and improved the scan to email capabilities on this machine, and I do really wish automatic duplex scanning was a feature, but overall this printer does a great job and has all of the most important features I would expect in a great laser printer. I would definitely recommend this machine to those needing fast printing and/or high quality printing capabilities. I could definitely see it being a really great addition to a home office or small business.

    A workhorse for households and small businesses

    Verdict: we love this printer! It’s now installed over Wi-Fi on all the computers in the house. With 4-in-1 functions, fast duplex printing and ADF scanning, it is a workhorse machine for any household and even small businesses. However, I am dreading the replacement cost for the toner, which will likely come sooner than we expect since it’s so easy for everyone to print now.

    Initial impressions. It is heavy! Yes of course, it’s a big printer, but it’s heavier than I expected. Definitely follow the recommendation that is on the flyer as soon as you open the box on how to remove the printer from the box, especially if you are alone. The touch screen is beautiful and bright (and it rotates!), giving the impression of high tech. My previous printer still had a black and white screen with buttons on the side… This is a nice upgrade.

    Setup. Besides having to rearrange some things to fit this printer in our office since it was bigger than the old one, setup was easy. Make sure you set it up on a sturdy table or desk; as already mentioned, it is heavy! The toner was already installed (note that these are “introductory cartridges” good for 1350 color pages and 700 black pages). The printer has many, if not all, connection options (Wi-Fi, USB, Apple AirPrint, etc.). I always dread the software installation for printers because something always goes wrong, but to my surprise, I had no issues! Download was easy and installation didn’t run into any issues. We connected through Wi-Fi and in just a few minutes the printer was up and running.

    Printing. Printing is much faster than our old HP. It will be fast for most people too, unless you compare it to a full-size copier. The black and white printing is comparable to our old HP LaserJet printer (black & white only), but now having the color option is fantastic. And front and back printing? Yes! Up to 21 ppm, so pretty good.

    Scanning. I tested the scanner with the document feeder and I was impressed by the speed and reliability of the operation. No paper jams, no bad fuzzy scans, or issues with the document format on the computer. It used to be so hard to scan reliably, but not anymore. It just works, and you can select any format you want, including PDF. Please note that it will not scan duplex; this is not a problem for us but consider your household or small business needs. The printer will email your scans but it requires a specific setup. I was expecting an easier feature like on my work copier where I can just enter an email when I scan and it automatically sends it there. If I do much more scanning, I may go through all the steps to set it up.

    Toner. More so than our old HP Laserjet, the toner is expensive… Really, in my perspective, this is the only drawback of this machine. Make sure you check the prices before buying this printer so you know what you are getting into. I don't really understand why it is so expensive. On the plus side, it is really easy to switch out the toner, the tray just comes out with all the toner cartridges.

    Things I like:

    - All-in-one powerhouse printer! Yes, it’s big and heavy but for most it’s the only machine you’ll need

    - Duplex color laser printing!

    - Print from your smartphone! And any Mac or Windows computer

    - Many connection options for your computers and network

    - Fast and quality prints

    - Automatic document feeder allows for easy (non-duplex) scanning

    - Scanning is reliable and makes choosing the document format really easy

    - Easy setup! This is not a “give-me.” Software installs and printer networking is usually a pain, but this setup was not. Thank you!

    - It has a fax (!!), which actually comes in handy once in a blue moon

    Things I don’t like:

    - Toner is very expensive

    - Duplex scanning would have been great but not such a big deal for us

    - Scan to email feature could have been better implemented

    Overall, this is a fantastic printer. I would recommend it if you want a solid printer for your home and you are ok with the features and cost of the toner. I would rate this printer 5 stars if it wasn't for the toner cost, which I think is a significant consideration in purchasing this machine. Otherwise, this printer is HP quality and reliability all the way.

    A Bit of a Disappointment

    Overall, the M238 is very good multi-use device. However, there are some issues that prevent it from being great.

    PROs:

    * Set up is very easy. Just follow the onscreen instructions, and it’s ready in minutes.

    * The primary paper dispenser (designated #2) is easy to access and offers a variety of paper size options.

    * Printing a document is quiet and very fast, be it color or b&w, including two-sided printing.

    * Scan function is also quiet, fast, and produces good quality reproduction.

    * Touchscreen control panel is large enough for easy reading.

    * The operational software HPSmart is easy to use.

    * Unless you are a high demand user, the toner cartridges should last quite a while. That’s a good thing, because replacements are expensive.

    CONs:

    *There is second paper dispenser (designated#1), and you must look for it, because there is no diagram of functional areas. The numbers embossed on the printer front give a clue that there should be another dispenser. When it’s found, DO NOT try to remove it for loading it, as it is designed for hand feeding individual sheets. Again, there is no documentation regarding its functionality; so, being used to multi-sheet loading, I removed. By removing it, I learned the composition is very thin plastic and is a chore to get reinserted. I was afraid it would break before I got it back. So, you can insert single paper sheets or single photo sheets, which is not ok if you need to print more than one or two items.

    * While the M238 duplex prints, it does NOT duplex scan. So, using the document feeder for scanning two-sided documents requires manual input, essentially doubling scanning time. If you have a large multipage document, you cannot load and go. You must turn over the document, and then send it back through. That can be tedious, even more so than the single sheet printer feed.

    * Photo printing is awful. Colors are washed out, even on high gloss paper, and the printed picture looks like a photo from many years ago that was exposed to light. Also, when a picture is printed, it exits into an area inside the printer. To retrieve it, you must lean over if sitting in a chair or standing, stick your hand inside an open area recessed in the printer, and then pull out the picture. That wouldn’t be so bad if you received a proper print.

    * For the cost of the printer, one would expect it would not lack any functionality and that ALL work product would be excellent.

    BOTTOM LINE:

    If you don’t care about quality photo printing, this is an excellent printer. If you don’t mind manually scanning two-sided documents, this is an excellent scanner. However, without those caveats being disclosed, I would not recommend it to a friend.

    Large & Heavy, but Great for Crafting

    Set up: The initial set up for this printer was easy to understand and was very quick. It took less then 5 minutes to get it set up and printing.

    Size: This printer is quite large! We needed to give up a lot of valuable desk real estate to upgrade from our simple inkjet to this laser jet printer. If space is limited, this may not be the printer for you.

    Looks: I appreciate that this printer is more of a whitish gray plastic. Our previous ink jet printer was shiny black plastic and it would very quickly become dusty. Also, the glossy surface would show smudges and fingerprints. This material shows less dust and doesn't smudge as easily. Thankfully I wont have to dust it off as often.

    Printing quality: I was impressed by the printing quality. I intend to use the printer for crafting & diy projects - So, the first test was printing onto waterslide paper (which I compared to the same image previously printed with an inkjet). The quality and color was virtually identical. As someone who works with waterslide paper often-I would recommend this printer for those who work crafting projects.

    Speed: I scanned and printed 20 copies of a full page black and white documents. The printer took about a minute to scan the page in, and took a little less than two minutes to print 20 copies. The process was very easy to understand and was quick. Even those who do not consider themselves particularly tech savvy will be able to use this printer.

    Overall: I was very impressed by this as an entry level laser printer. The speed and quality seem very high for the price of the product and I would recommend this printer to anyone looking for a laser printer in this price range.

    CAUTION: Be aware that the replacement toner is VERY expensive. Typically I purchase generic toner from whatever website offers the best price. BUT, there are several warnings that generic cartridges may not work. It appears as though HP goes out of there way to ensure that only licensed toner will work. As the printer is connected to your wireless network - it sounds as though Over The Air Updates may be used to ensure that generic cartridges do not work. Please look up the replacement toner to ensure you understand how much you will be paying for replacements. (I now understand why some people literally purchase a new printer every they need new Toner or Ink).

    Great Multi-Function Color Laser Printer

    This HP Color LaserJet Pro M283fdw is a very well built, feature rich printer as you have come to expect from HP.

    Unpacking and setup:

    This is a fairly heavy printer (just over 40lbs) and taking it out of the box is not that difficult if you follow the instructions. It can be done by one person, but may be easier if someone else was holding the box while you're pulling on the plastic bag to slide the whole unit out with the box laying on its side. The setup is quick and easy, you don't have to mess with the toner cartridges cause they're already installed. Downloading the full Software Suite (240MB) from HP's website took longer than expected, but it was probably some Internet congestion, etc. The Hardware initialization and Software install took about 5 minutes but may be faster on a newer PC. Once completed, and setup on the wired network, a print out came out automatically with the web printing email address and information on how to print from anywhere.

    Connectivity:

    This printer has it all. You can connect it directly via USB cable. You can wire it to your network via Gigabit Ethernet cable or you can set it up over dual-band Wi-Fi, either 2.4GHz or 5GHz which is great if you have many Wi-Fi devices on your network. There is also a front USB port.

    Printing Performance:

    I was impressed how quickly the printer wakes-up and is ready to print, almost instantly. I'm used to laser printers taking a while to warm-up before the first page comes out. It's rare that in such a home-office friendly package, it also prints double-sided (duplex), which is just as fast as printing single-sided with the added advantage of saving paper. On average I got about 20 pages per minute in mixed black and white, color and duplex modes. Print quality is crisp and color reproduction is quite accurate to the naked eye.

    HP Smart App for Android:

    I was really excited to very easily be able to print directly from my smart phone. Once you install the App it will prompt for additional HP Driver software which is also freely downloadable from the Play Store. The app gives you many options to print documents, photos, scan, copy, etc. I chose to print a photo from my local Gallery, though it gave me an option to print from Google Photos or Amazon Photos, if you have those Apps installed. Even though I did not use photo quality paper, the images and colors still came out really good, just not as shiny as it would be on photo paper.

    Scanning/Copying:

    Tested a simple document scan from my PC and again it was very intuitive, lots of options as to what file format to save the scan to PDF, JPG, and many other popular formats, or directly to email.

    Touchscreen LCD:

    There is a 2.7" tilt-able color LCD screen that is very intuitive and easy to navigate for settings and to manage the core functions of printing, scanning, copying or faxing.

    Overall this is an excellent printer, versatile and very well built. It is heavy and larger than your typical home inkjet printers of basic B&W laser printers, but that's to be expected for such a feature-rich workhorse. Make sure you check the dimensions before you buy one. It fits well in my home office furnished with matching Ikea furniture and custom built white PC tower :-)

    Wasn't easy to set up.

    The directions for installing this printer are flawed. It shows and asks you to go to the home screen, but gives you no directions on how to get there. The first screen displayed is a default settings screen. Being a NON-Tech person, I had no idea what to do. I did love HP Technical Dept. It did take the lady an hour to help walk me through, how to set up, but it works great!!! Plus the HP Technical Dept. followed up with me about a week later, to make sure the printer was still working, & if I had any other questions, or concerns. Love HP!!! Some plastic parts on machine are a little flimsy.

    Easy Set up and Feature Packed w Duplex Printing!

    The setup was extremely easy! The printer already had the ink installed and it was only a matter of connecting the ethernet cable and adding a network printer. The setting and options are almost overwhelming but it gets narrowed as you pick a connection and configuration.

    The print quality is very crisp and clear as is the scanning quality. Oddly enough the feature that blew me away was the copy function! I made a copy of a color photo-quality image and the copier made a beautiful copy with minor issues. There was a very slight loss of color gradiation in a very few and very hard to spot areas. The color copy was very very good. I make copies pretty frequently and even tho i do not make copies of photos i do make color copies with various graphics on it and this all-in-one will not disappoint.

    The 2.7 inch screen is a breeze to operate and navigate. There are way more options than you will ever use. it also has a nice feature of allowing you to print using already installed templates such as graphs/notebook, calendars..etc. The other nifty feature is the adjustable slot on the front of the printer which allows for printing on envelopes or specialty sized paper one at a time.

    Truly a powerhouse all-in-one that has a small footprint considering the quality of the performance and the DUAL SIDED PRINTING!!

    That's right it has automatic dual sided printing, it prints extremely fast and on both sides. No more flipping paper and mixing up the orientation...a great printer A+.

    The only issue is the app for mobile printing does work but it does take some getting used to but the connection was smooth using direct wifi link. The printer also offer dual band printing, 2.4/5.0, i use the 5Ghz and sending wireless jobs is much faster than my old 2.4 connection, it spools large jobs very quickly.

    I ramble on but it is a very nice printer.

    Be aware of the cost for replacement cartridges!

    As far as quality and what this printer does, it is top notch. The print quality is excellent and the best way I can desribe it is smooth and vibrant.

    Unboxing it you find a solid and heavy unit. Which is nice and gives it a high quality feel. Setup is easy and hooked up to my wifi network easily. Instead of the usual software drivers that are simply downloaded, you have to download the HP Smart app, at least on my MacBook. Some might consider this a negative, but the app isn’t that bad, and it does make scanning a lot easier.

    Also, it was nice, and an unexpected surprise, not having the printer wanting to waste ink printing a "calibration" page.

    The touchscreen controls works well, but it is a bit small. I had to be extra careful typing in my wifi network info as the buttons are so tiny.

    The single sheet feeder is a small feature but very welcome. I print a lot of labels and its so nice just slipping one in right before I have to print one versus messing with the paper tray when I don’t want to just use the regular paper.

    The scanner is also top notch. I scanned in a bunch of 4x6 pictures and the scan quality is excellent, and even if you don’t like having to download an app to use the printer, it’s worth having for how easy it makes scanning. The document feeder makes it even better. I was able to place a stack of pictures on it and it pulled them in and scanned them all. The app then lets you make any edits needed one by one, and when you’re ready to save it creates individual files for each photo and puts them in a single folder. Before this I had a dedicated scanner and had to do one picture at a time. I can’t tell you how amazing this is for me and a HUGE timesaver!

    Now for the bad parts.

    The light on the power button. This may be nitpicky for some, but it’s a major annoyance for me. When the printer goes into sleep/standby mode, the light on the power button starts blinking. If the printer isn’t within eyesight this isn’t a problem, but where it is in my office I can’t help but see it, and it’s not only annoying but extremely distracting when I’m trying to work. I ended up having to get a piece of electrical tape to cover it, which doesn’t exactly look very good or professional. It would be nice if there was a setting to disable the blinking when in standby.

    And for my final issue. This is the first laser jet printer I’ve owned that uses toner cartridges. These cartridges are EXPENSIVE! Make sure you factor that in. As of the time I’m writing this review, the full set of 4 cartridges (black, cyan, yellow, magenta) cost over $280!! That’s more than 60% of the price for this entire printer! It’s almost better to just buy a whole new printer once you’ve used up all the cartridges. If you don’t use the color ones much it won’t be as big of a deal, and the black cartridge is supposed to yield about 1350 pages, so the sticker shock won’t be as bad if all you need is black.

    Overall though, based on over a week of use, this is the best printer I’ve owned, and just the time it’s going to save me scanning pictures in makes up for some of the other costs of ownership.

    Nice!

    This printer IS an all in one. I can print from anywhere, scan to my computer, and copy.

    So what's different than any other all in one you ask. 1) touch screen navigation 2) true color representation 3) does it pretty fast.

    I'm in school, online and have to print off a ton of reading material (yea I'm ole school - see it, touch it, feel it), it's great that I don't have to wait forever until its finished. Loading paper is very easy, the arm on the paper tray can be retracted when not needed.

    I haven't tried pictures or card stock yet, but I'm fairly sure that this Pro will come through .

    Fast, easy to use and great quality prints!

    Great SOHO all in one printer. Its fast and does everything you want, prints, copies, scans, faxes documents in black or color.

    It was extremely easy to setup, just turn on, open the inner door, and then install each one of the included inks (3 for color and one black), afterwards it will ask you to print an alignment page which you then have it scan so it can tune up the printer heads. Afterwards, you can finish the setup either on a PC by downloading the HP smart app from the windows app store or you can do it also on your phone downloading the same app from your phone’s app store. I chose to do it with my PC, it will detect the printer and then ask you to enter your Wi-Fi credentials, so the printer connects to your network. Then you can create a HP account (or if you already have one login) and then it will automatically give you an extra year of warranty and 12 months of free ink replacement!! (it does it in the form of 6 months free and then gives you $30 credit, which is worth another 6 months), you do have to enter a credit card info (does not charge you, however it’s needed for when the 12 month free period ends, then it will auto ship you ink, and you can choose your plan, and the great thing is it does it based on printed pages.

    The printer is amazingly fast, and I love the dual sided print feature, that makes me save so much on paper! Blacks are inky black, and colors are vibrant and defined (paper quality also matters here, so get a quality ink printer paper).

    I love that the scanner/copy feature has two ways to do it, either with the traditional scanner flat bed, or it also has an auto feeder tray, so you do not have to do one paper at the time, it automatically feeds the scanner/copier. It also has fax port; however, I have not tried it yet, I have not had the need to fax something, but I am sure it is like any other fax machine.

    Just an FYI, on my initial setup, the printer downloaded a firmware update and upon restart the HP smart app on my PC would not recognize the printer anymore, and then the printer on screen display would keep saying I had to finish setup, which I had done already, it would not let me print anything due this. I battled it out a hole night, doing a factory reset, re setting up the printer and nothing. I gave up. However, then next morning I decided to try it out again (I had unplugged it for the night) and I plugged it back again and everything was back to normal. So, I think unplugging it and plugging it back again made ok after the update, so If you have this same issue, remember to restart it like that after you see a firmware update (make sure it finishes it completely, do not interrupt it!).

    Printing from everywhere!

    HP Office-jet Pro 8035 All-in One Printer is a smart and easy printer to use. I have had many printers over the years and this printer is without a doubt the easiest one I’ve ever set up.

    Out of the box all I had to was follow a link in the instructions on my IPhone or computer and download the HP printer app. Once downloaded the App walks you through the setup process. The printer can be setup through a standard printer cable directly to your computer, Network cable or wirelessly for multiple users to use.

    This is a full service printer with printing, scanning, copying and is even Alexa enabled. It has a clear fairly large LED touch screen to work the scanner, copy functions, view ink levels and other setup tools. As a bonus it includes free 8 months of Insta Ink which is great.

    The print quality is excellent and very quick and is the best HP home office printer I have ever had.

    Powerful printer

    I purchased the HP Officejet

    Pro 7740 and received it 2 days ago. I love it since it is a great improvement from the officejet 4650 I was using. It is humongous compared to my old one but still not that heavy. The setup was so easy that I completed in less than a minute including the wireless connection. So far I find it very fast, reliable and I expect the ink cartridges to last more since they are all XL type. The quality of the printouts are even much better than a laser printer. I read so many reviews before buying it and found the negative ones not true. This is a very powerful printer that cover printouts from an envelope size to 11x17 paper. Really I recommend it to quality seekers.

    HP OfficeJet Pro 7740 Wireless All-In-One

    Bought this in late July for home based business. Does everything I have needed up to this point. Relatively easy to set up, works well with my WiFi so I can actually print something from my cell phone which is very convenient. Scanning functions are many so I'm still learning to use them, ADF works perfectly, no jams or misfeeds. Yes, its a copier, too. All three sizes operate as designed. No jams or misfeeds there either. Print product is readable and sharp. Haven't really tried to print photos so the jury is still out on that aspect, but don't expect any less than the best from this unit. Many possible uses that still require time to give a true evaluation of the product but so far its a win-win, so, I give it 4 out of 5 stars. Worth the price.

    Good printer but has a few quirks

    This replaces an 11 year old HP all-in-one and for the most part it is a much better printer. Upgraded from 8x10 to 11x17 size max scan size. Because of the larger scan size and 2 trays this is a beast bigger and heavier than older machine.

    PROS

    1. 2 paper trays & auto select picks letter or legal correctly when size is specified

    2. Scans duplex without re-feeding paper through the machine- 1 pass gets both sides.

    3. Duplex scans legal size documents (old printer couldn't)

    4. Scan and print quality very good

    5. Prints faster than old machine w/text only very fast.

    6. Setup was fast and easy all computers in household recognized and set up drivers very fast.

    7. Paper trays will accommodate up to 11x17" paper

    8. Software for scanning provides more flexibility in selecting scan options than old software and works really well.

    9. Used several types and sizes of paper and so far no jams feeds everything well.

    CONS

    1. Size of the display it is tiny about half the size of the old printer. Makes it very hard to see what is on the screen and with big fingers like I have getting the right item pressed especially on the top of the display is almost impossible. Using a stylus for this thankfully don't use display often.

    2. Document handler only holds 35 sheets old one held 50.

    3. Tray where scanned documents goes after being scanned is WAY TO SHORT. HP reduced the height of this to save space since the unit is so big. so it is just under 1" and the papers don't stick out very far from the document feeder above. This makes it difficult to pull the papers out after they are scanned.

    4. Software for scanning and printing are buried in a master program. Must start main program which takes a while to load, then select for scan wait for that to load then select scan from there so 3 mouse clicks to get to scan a document. Old software allowed that program to be started directly from desktop icon. Way faster. Haven't been able to find a way to do that with this software.

    5. Smart chip in ink cartridges and HP constantly auto updating firmware to make use of 3rd party cartridges very difficult. Checking several ink suppliers looks like you can work around that a bit. I know ink is where the profit is but still ink is waaaay to expensive.

    Love this printer!

    I've owned this printer for a little over a year, and it's been smooth sailing all along. I regularly print single and double-sided b&w or color sheets in 8-1/2 x 11 and 8-1/2 x 14 for some volunteer work that I do. I believe we've printed over 1500 pages this last year. Ink cost seems average. Print Quality is exceptional for office printing (haven't done photos). I actually always print in draft mode and the quality is good enough to use as a final print (for color charts, maps, and other office docs). Know that the printer is large in size. I can't fault it for being so large when it has the ability to print 11x17, but just in case anyone thought they could just clear a corner on their small desk to put this printer - it is better off on it's own piece of furniture. We have it on a little 2'x2' platform and I believe it overhangs a little. One little annoyance is that I haven't figured out how to default the printer to auto-select by paper size, and I find it best to check the settings with every print I do (using Windows 10). I hope they fix this software/driver issue. I think the hardware is top quality.

    HP Officejet 7740 review

    I recently purchased the HP Officejet Pro 7740 after my HP Officejet 7610 finally died. I needed a printer that could print 11x17 format and this one is terrific. The setup was so easy that I completed it in less than a minute using the wireless connection. I had reviewed the specs and was fully aware that the auto feeder does not scan 11x17 documents, but you can still scan them manually on the flat bed. One of the really nice features is that the printer has two drawers for holding different size paper, plus the ability to print on both sides. This printer is awesome and you can’t beat the price.

    Printer with paper to spare!

    The printer works great! Having a large paper supply in the printer is definately a lot better than constantly having to add paper every few minutes. Set up is a bit more involved than printers I have had in the past. I ended up having to call HP's help line to make sure everything was loaded properly and that did take some time. However, now that I am up and running, this printer is a major improvement!

    Solid so far

    I'v only had the printer a few weeks but no major complaints. I loaded the basic drivers instead of the "full" drivers because I've had too much trouble with HP's software in the past - case in point, I still haven't been able to completely remove my old printer drivers. The printer itself seems pretty solid. I only gave it four stars because the touch screen is more difficult to use than the console buttons my old 7500 printer had and I haven't yet been able to access a memory device mounted on the printer over the network (I could on my old 7500 using the basic drivers)

    This was one of the most impressive displays of GREAT customer service I’ve experienced in my over 60 years! I have had okay experiences with the BB near my house but use this store that is on the other side of town from me because of the customer service. In this case, I got the notice within 1/2 hour that my printer was ready to be picked up, I drove into the curbside pick up area and literally within a minute or maybe 2, a very nice young woman brought the printer to my car quickly and was pleasant and wished me a very good day and gave me some type of compliment. I am sure the store had to be extremely busy but the transaction happened as if there were no other customers but me! Really great experience.

    Scan to OCR as an Excel is not compatible with Office 2016

    Scan to OCR doesn’t offer option for Word

    Printer technology hasn’t seemed to have changed as fast as the rest of the tech industry but there have been improvements. The most significant improvement has been in the price for what you get. The Brother MFC-L3770CDW is a lot of printer for a very reasonable price. It offers dual sided color LED printing, scanning, and faxing.

    LED technology is the latest in printers. LED printers are supposed to offer the print quality of laser but with a cheaper price, higher reliability, and less power required. The MFC-L3770CDW is an LED printer and certainly offers a competitive price and should offer higher reliability. A bonus is that warm up time is much shorter than most laser printers. Even from sleep, the printer can start printing within 14 seconds from startup, but it feels quicker as it almost seems like immediately after you press print it is warming up where others usually have long pause first. Besides being quick to start, it is also very quiet. Prints are overall sharp but not quiet as vibrant as the latest generation of laser printers. Blacks have a very slight blue/purple hue and the print has a more matt finish like older color laser printers. Brother does offer an advanced color calibration option if needed. Overall print quality is very good considering the price and feature set. Most people wouldn’t recognize the difference unless a printout from a much more expensive laser printer was placed next to it. Like laser printers, this printer isn’t well suited to photo printing but can product nice looking presentations and flyers.

    It’s worth noting that if you have a smaller room you would like to keep this in you should make sure the room has adequate ventilation. If left in a closed 15x15 room overnight, you will notice a pretty strong odor of what smells like ozone. It’s hard to say if it is truly ozone, like what laser printers emit, but if it is it can cause health issues over time. Regardless, the smell is strong if not kept ventilated.

    For a small package this MFC packs a lot of features. It offers all the standard features of a multi-function printer but adds cloud functionality and compatibility with smartphones and tablets. There are many online enabled features including OneDrive, Google Drive, Box, and Dropbox integration to name a few. Not only does it offer printing support for Mac OS but Linux as well.

    With this cloud integration you can reduce the amount of prints needed as well as keep things more organized. Want to send a fax of a document you have on a computer or mobile device. No problem. Either option is covered. You send it to the MFC and it gets sent out without the need to print, scan, and fax. Want to keep your faxes organized and not waste resources on junk faxes? Just set it to fax to email or better yet, to cloud. When you have it scan to cloud it will store them in a folder in your cloud storage and notify you via email once finished. No more misprints, lost prints, or confidential information sitting on the printer waiting to be picked up. If you prefer to keep incoming faxes more local but don’t want to print them directly there is also a fax to pc option. Faxes will be forwarded and stored on a local computer of your choice for later retrieval. If the computer gets turned off for some reason the MFC has memory to store faxes until the computer is turned back on at which point it will immediately transfer the waiting faxes.

    It is unusual to find a printer, let alone a multi-function device, with so much versatility in printing options. You don’t even need a computer to use it. You can print and scan using the Brother iPrint&Scan app for Android and iOS. The options available continue in Windows where on Windows 10 you can just have Windows 10 automatically detect and install the basic drivers or manually download the complete suite from Brother’s website to include PaperPort to organize your scanned documents.

    This still does not describe all the features and options it has. This might sound intimidating, but Brother has managed to keep it simple first. You aren’t forced into the advanced features. You can leave everything default and it will work well as it. If you want to dig into more advanced features you don’t have to navigate through a large panel of buttons. Included is an integrated touchscreen display which only shows the relevant features for what you are trying to do. It really helps keep things simple for as much as it can do.

    Besides compatibility with virtually any device and a competitive price, Brother offers a unique perk. Most printers only come with support in regard to factory defects. Brother not only offers the industry standard 1-year warranty against defects but also offers phone, chat, and email support for the life of your printer. If you are looking for an all-around versatile device for your home office or small office, the Brother MFC-L3770CDW is a very compelling choice you should consider.

    Full Featured Printer For Home / Office Set-Up

    The Brother MFC-L3770CDW Wireless Color All-In-One Printer is my multi-functional, home office, productivity assistant. Since I generate approximately 1,500 printed pages of construction, inspection reports a month I looked forward to setting this printer up and running it through my paces. What excited me the most was the two-sided printing feature, which would cut my printed reports in half. The two-sided printing not only reduces my paper use, but is easier for the viewer to read. My reports, which are read by architects, engineers, and building owners are much more condensed and professional looking now . WooHoo!

    Out of the box this printer weighs approximately 54 pounds and is on the heavy side to lift and move. So, be sure to have some help if needed. Although the printer is hefty it does not take a large footprint for installation. The dimensions are approximately 16 inches wide by 16 inches high and 20 inches deep. It fit perfectly in the location of my old printer. It took me approximately one and a half hours to unpack and hook up the printer. The Quick Setup Guide was most helpful in getting the printer unpacked and running. This Brother printer includes a Quick Setup Guide, CD-ROM Installer with Drivers and Software, Power Cord, telephone line cord for FAX connection, and starter set of 4 Toners with Drum Unit Set. Once the AC power was 'ON' I used the LCD touchscreen at the front and top of the printer to connect to my Wi-Fi network. I activated the CD-ROM, Installer for Drivers and Utilities, on my computer, which 'found' the unit and I made it my default printer. I was then ready to print.

    Over the past two weeks of daily use I have grown to love this printer. It is easy to operate and produces laser-sharp printed documents in color, and, or black print. I registered my printer at the Brother Support website and also downloaded the Online Users Guide, which is more comprehensive in detail to include drawings and illustrations. It is very helpful and convenient to to look up the myriad of feature settings and operations. I am not going to list all of the features and specifications of this Brother MFC-L3770CDW, but I will list the ones I think set this printer above all the rest. You can see all the features and specs at the Best Buy product website.

    Brother MFC-L3770CDW Features I Really Like:

    * Two-Sided Printing. You can activate this setting in 'Printer Properties' when you are actually ready to print out a document. You can select either automatic or manual printing.

    * Bright LCD Touchscreen. Allows me to quickly select a function, Fax, Scan, Copy, or 'Secure' Print, and, or, other settings. It also gives me the status of each of my toners' supply. It has a Tool icon, which allows me to set the brightness of the LCD touchscreen, general settings for FAX Scan, Copy, or Print. You can use either the LCD touchscreen or included software on your computer to change and adjust any settings or functions of this printer.

    * Generously Sized Main Paper Tray. Stores up to 250 sheets of quality, 20 lb plain paper. The Multi-Purpose Tray stores up to 30 sheets of 20 lb plain paper and the Automatic Document Feeder holds up to 50 sheets of 20 lb plain paper.

    * Fast Print Speeds. Up to 25 PPM in both Monochrome or Color. For two-sided printing this Brother will handle up to 4 sheets a minute – my new favorite kind of printing job.

    * Optional Connections to Printer. I can connect all my devices through the built-in wireless, Wi-Fi Direct, or connect my laptop or phone via USB. Also have used my Flash Drive through the USB port to print directly to this Brother printer. I choose the document(s) I want to print through the USB Icon on the Home Menu of the LCD touchscreen. It reads the documents off of my Flash Drive.

    * Quiet Printing, Scanning, and Copying. For all the print speed and work this printer does it is amazing how quiet it actually is.

    * Laser Quality Print and Copying. The text is sharp and smudge-free in monochrome and, or in color. However, printing out pictures is not high quality. This is not a photo printer, but the image quality is adequate for my field photo documentation.

    * Print-from and scan-to popular cloud apps directly from the 3.7" color touchscreen including Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote, OneNote, OneDrive, and Box.

    * The Manual Feed Slot accommodates printing on card stock, envelopes, photo paper and more.

    * Create Shortcuts on the LCD touchscreen of frequently used functions. I created a two-sided printing shortcut.

    * Print and scan without connecting to your local Wi-Fi network by using the NFC “touch to connect” Icon on the front of the printer to the right of the paper output tray.

    * iPrint&Scan App for remote printing on mobile devices is available in IOS at the Apple Store and Android at Google Play Store. You can check the status of the printer, toner, and print or scan remotely through various cloud services. From the Brother Support website you can download the Mobile Print/Scan Guide for Brother iPrint&Scan App for both Apple and Android. This is an extremely helpful Guide, which explains in detail all of the functions you can perform using the iPrint&Scan App on your mobile devices. It was a 'must' for me.

    * One Year Warranty and free online, call or live chat support for the life of this product.

    The Brother MFC-L3770CDW Wireless Color All-In-One Printer is a beast of a workhorse for me. When I am out of town on inspections I can remotely print out all of my notes and observations to my home office printer for later review. YooHoo! This printer allows me to make as many copies of my reports as I need quickly and cost effectively too. I highly recommend the purchase of this printer, especially if you require a high volume of printing on a monthly basis.

    Great High-Volume Choice

    This Brother all-in-one, or multi-function printer is a color laser printer (uses toner cartridges rather than ink cartridges), a flat-bed scanner, color copier, and fax machine. The printer has one paper tray that will hold up to legal size paper and four toner cartridges, black, cyan, magenta, and yellow. There is also a fold down door on the front of the machine revealing the multi-purpose tray, used to load specialty paper such as envelopes. The printer is Wi-Fi capable, AirPrint compatible and can use Near Field Communication from mobile devices. There is a front USB port enabling you to print directly from a USB drive (or scan a document and save it directly to the drive), but there is not an SD card slot. The printer is not intended to print photos (I believe this is a characteristic of all color laser printers), but the scanner function can scan photographs.

    The printer arrived in a box 24” x 20” x 22” high, and it is quite hefty meaning it likely will not fit into the trunk of most sedans. The printer unpacked easy enough if you don’t have any lifting restrictions. For our purposes at home, I had to connect only the AC power cable – if we wanted fax capability, I would also have to connect a phone line. The power cord is the typical AC-cable with a plug on both ends that has a standard female end that connects to the printer. A phone cable is included too, along with a CD-ROM of drivers and other software, and rudimentary set-up and reference instructions. A detailed user guide is available on Brother’s web site along with downloadable drivers and software if your computer(s) no longer has an optical drive. It does not come with an Ethernet cable if you plan on connecting the printer in that fashion.

    Set up was quick and trouble free and I had no issues with our Windows 10, Mac OS, and iOS devices all being able to connect and print. Since the printer is connected to our Wi-Fi network, the date and time set themselves automatically.

    This model uses a combination of buttons and a color touchscreen to control the printer. The touchscreen is very easy to use with good response, clear graphics and text prompts when needed. The product description states that the paper tray will hold up to 250 sheets of paper. It would have been nice if a whole ream of paper could fit in the tray at one time to avoid finding a home for the partial ream until the printer needs more paper loaded into it. It appears there are two toner cartridge sizes, TN-223 (standard yield) and TN-227 (high yield), and as with most things in life, the larger “package” is a much better buy when comparing cost per page to print.

    Depending on the type of print job you are attempting (1-sided or 2-sided) and the type of paper being used (plain, glossy, legal, etc), there are specifics on which tray to use, settings that need to be changed, quantity of paper that can be loaded, and orientation if using preprinted paper that make referring to the full user manual mandatory (which is 675 pages long, and only one language). The printer allows you to set a variety of “shortcuts” for differing types of print jobs so that you don’t have to manually set different parameters every time you need to change types of jobs.

    At home we have previously had only ink jet printers since 1997 as we are not high print-volume users. I have had a lot of experience with laser printers through work since my profession utilizes printers virtually all day. This Brother printer exhibits the same features and initial quality as any of the big name brands usually seen in office environments. That being said, I think this printer is probably too sophisticated for the needs of the average home user (myself included). Speed, print quality and unobtrusive noise are all outstanding in my opinion and make the MFC-L3770CDW printer one that I doubt any home office or small business user would be disappointed with.

    Awesome features but a bit bulky and slow

    Last week I received the Brother MFC-L3770CDW Color laser printer for my home office. I have used several other MFC (multi-function color) printers before – both Laser and Ink Jet, and was excited to give this one a try as I’ve been having scanning-to-pc connectivity issues with another popular brand recently.

    The first thing you notice is the size and weight of this unit. It weighs in at 54 lbs. and is roughly a 16”x20”x16” cube. You’ll need ample space and a study table or counter top to place this machine.

    Setup was a smooth and easy. Unpack, remove all the shipping tape and tabs, install the toner, attach to the wireless network and BOOM – you’re printing. Mine detected a software update within the first 5 minutes and quickly downloaded/installed it. The 3.7” LCD display is intuitive and easy to use – and also informed me of that software update.

    I installed the full Brother Utilities software on my desktop computer from the freshly downloaded nearly 500MB file and let everything be setup as default. The printer has NFC features for the Android phones, but the iPhone I have doesn’t support that. Never fear – the AirPrint capabilities worked flawlessly – and allowed me to print out pictures with no trouble at all!

    A couple things I really like about the printer include:

    1. A large paper source tray with the ability to handle Legal paper as well

    2. The multi-sheet document feeder on top – which has worked well with my test stack of 20 pages – some with folds in them. It is able to handle 50 pages at a time!

    3. The Duplex scanning features – and the scan to PC worked great on the first attempt – a big plus as compared to other MFC’s I’ve used in the past.

    4. The 30 sheet multi-purpose paper tray – works great for using special paper without having to switch stock out of the normal 250 sheet paper tray.

    5. To copy or scan pages from a book or magazine, the document feeder lifts up about an inch or so to accommodate the thickness of the object – a nice feature!

    A couple things that surprised me about the printer:

    1. It seems a bit slow to start printing – usually between 10-15 seconds. I know that doesn’t seem long - but when I hit the print button I want the printer to start making noises and printing right away.

    2. I printed the same color document test page on this Brother MFC Laser device and also to my own MFC Inkjet Printer. Yes I’m aware that it is not a true comparison – but I feel the Ink Jet printer did a better job rendering the colors and took less time overall for what it’s worth.

    Overall – this is an excellent MFC device that will work well in a home office or small office with multiple users. The toner cartridges are rated at over 1000 pages each – and are individually replaced as needed. It’s very quiet and with the duplex features, automatic document feeders and integration with most major cloud document servers – you can’t go wrong. I gave 4 stars vs 5 only due to the relatively slower start-print time and slightly less distinct prints as compared to my MFC ink-jet.

    So glad I "canned" my inkjet...

    They say in "all tests" that lasers are more costly to operate (per page printed) than an inkjet.

    Well... I don't print that many pages, or rather, there is definitely a lot of time in between printing - and guess what? The nozzles on my inkjet plugs up, printouts are streaked, "weak in print (missing parts of letters and numbers)", colors wrong due to the different colors plug up differently.

    Remedy: "clean the nozzles, print test page".

    Now, THAT is costly!!! The amount of ink used up when "cleaning" the nozzles!

    BTW - this has happened on several inkjets I have owned, made by several different manufacturers. I have always used OEM ink, so no "cheap knock-off" cartridges. This is the fourth [inkjet] printer now that I have given up on. Time and patience...

    ===============================

    Well, finally, I did some research and found this printer.

    Have not owned it for very long, but everything works, and it works great:

    +Pulls the paper straight (yes, that is important)

    +Does duplex without jamming

    +Handles card stock (for business cards) really well - they came out centered and with really crisp text down to 6 pt. font! And same there - it pulls in the card stock STRAIGHT from the manual slot without slippage.

    +Scanning, copying... no complaints. Very easy to use, scan and mail to your computer.

    (Not using the fax…)

    +Software suite installed easily - I had no issues with drivers or any other aspect of getting it up and running - even on my work laptop, which is a total disaster otherwise, due to our "friendly corporate I.T.'s" policies and "security measures".

    Some negatives:

    -It weighs a lot. Be careful lifting and moving it.

    -Only one bin for paper, so you can't have a second source for alternative paper - so manual switching or feeding through the manual slot is what you have to do.

    Cost of ownership:

    To be determined. But it is ALWAYS ready, starts up fast and it prints clean, crisp pages. My time and my patience is hard to put a price on, and here it really delivers! Since I am not wasting ink on "cleaning" I really don't expect that my true cost per page will be worse than on the [now discarded] inkjet printers.

    Just buy it…

    Frustrating Print Quality Issues

    I trust this is not a frequent issue based on the reviews I read prior to purchase, but we are having print quality issues (every page has about 10 broad shadow zones running horizontally across the page . . . the spacing of the "shadow zones" is perfectly uniform, so it must obviously be a problem with one or more of the drums). This unit has NOT been used much at all, which makes it particularly disappointing (plus it's 3 weeks beyond the return period since I didn't investigate/troubleshoot promptly--a dumb move on my part). The page is still easily readable, but the print issue is extremely obvious. I ran through some troubleshooting tips via the Brother website, but it did not help.

    I purchased this unit for home use based on reviews PLUS our positive experience with Brother products at work, but am very disappointed so far. I will happily update the rating if Brother or BB can fix this for me. $400+ tax and it can't produce a nice print. Very frustrating.

    Nice product

    Really nice product for a reasonable price. I got this one printer for my home office. It came fully assembled and initial setup steps were very easy and the user manual was very detailed. The print quality is good. I just got this one a while ago so can't really comment on the Toner and cartridge life, but I heard it's pretty good too.

    Can't get rid of black streaks & smudges

    I have been fighting black smudges and streaks since the day I got it home. Brother has sent me a complete new printer and a new toner, which helped for a couple weeks and then started again. None of the cleaning or maintenance procedures work or even help. I just opened a third support incident, and if this can't be fixed permanently I will be demanding a refund/return so I can buy another brand. I have only had this printer about 7 weeks!

    Excellent connected MFC printer with no duplex

    I've been using Brother printers at work and home for years. They're among the best and this is no exception.

    We've been using at home, for years, a previous model which is remarkably similar to these new models, trouble free for years.

    The printer is relatively quiet and fast.

    While the speed of the first page varies, I can confirm that is faster than older Brother printers.

    I found the quality to be very good, even for photos: Kids in the house go through a lot of printing so it made sense to use toner. While this won't print on photo pater, it's very good for advertising and school projects.

    The scanner is very fast, comparable to feed scanners on much larger printers.

    It's relatively compact for a color laser printer, and very easy to service:

    - Each tonner is individually mounted to its drum. Drums last much longer than toners and are replaced separately: Take the drum + toner out, swap the toner and insert it back in. The printer knows if one puts the wrong color (Because I did it).

    - Replacing the belt is also straightforward, as well as the dust bin (which in our case should last for years).

    - Controls are straightforward, with a simple numeric keypad and a bright and clear touchscreen, that although sluggish compared to a smartphone, it's very usable and responds quickly with little pressure.

    It's also an excellent connected printer, with an extensive list of features for home and corporate users:

    - AirPrint: Print, fax scan without prior setup from iPhone / iPad and macOS.

    - Mobile Printing for Windows: Windows 10 detects the printer automatically, when on the same network.

    - Connects with Android and Chrome via Mopria or Google Cloud Print.

    - Can scan to a mobile phone.

    - Scan to email (SMTP), Wndows File Share (SMB), to FTP servers from the printer itself.

    - Scan to SharePoint servers.

    - Scan directory to Windows PCs.

    - Scan directly to end user and corporate versions of cloud services: Microsoft OneNote, Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote and Box: Initial setup is done via a PC, and then the printer can connect directly to the service, accepts multiple profiles, which can be saved as shortcuts.

    It can turn itself completely off if not used (Configurable, by default 8 hours, and can be disabled).

    Mobile:

    - While one can print directly from iOS, for both iOS and Android there is an app 'iPrint&Scan' from Brother, which is free, allows also scanning, faxing and copy previews, and status checks.

    Some of the more advanced corporate management features:

    - Supports proxy settings, SNMPv2 and SNMP v3, web management via HTTP and/or HTTPS with configurable certificates, SMTP (Email) with authentication.

    - TLS certificates can be self-singed directly from the HTTP Web GUI or can generate a CSR or import an existing certificate chain.

    - Native support for secure print.

    Optional replenish services

    The printer can integrate automatically with an auto-fulfillment service for toner.

    The initial registration can be done from a phone on the same network as the printer.

    The providers supported are:

    - Brother refresh: Toner ships directly from Brother

    - Amazon dash replenishment

    - Best By Easy Replenish

    This is completely optional. It's advertised on the documentation and the phone app. There are no nagging reminders on the printer if not set up.

    Connectivity

    - It connects via WIFI (2.4Ghz, 802.11N) or USB

    - USB is available bout really this printer is made to be used via WIFI

    - Note that there is no wired ethernet connection

    CAVEATS - Considerations

    While I'd highly recommend these printers based on this new model and experience on older, similar models, this particular model, MFC-L3710CW seems to be made specifically to hit a marketing or pricing goal:

    - Currently for about the same price (and about $ 50 or so list price), the almost identical MFC-L3770CDW gains some functions that can be critical to most people:

    - Wired ethernet connection (In addition to WiFi, which is also available and optional).

    - Duplex printing

    - Duplex scanning

    - Also adds NFC for simpler printing from Android.

    So unless you really don't want duplex (the printing path is slightly simpler), or the difference in price is an issue, consider the MFC-L3770CDW.

    If I had to buy again, I'd get the later instead.

    Conclusion:

    - Excellent all-around multi-function, as long as one understands this model has no duplex and no wired ethernet.

    Solid Small Business Color Laser Printer

    I've been using my Brother MFC-L371CW for about 5 days now. I am a small business owner with a home office. This is a solid small business laser printer. It's footprint is quite large, almost double the size and 3X the weight of my color inkjet printer. But it was worth the space I made for it.

    It's nice to have the ability to print high quality color laser images and this unit doesn't disappoint. It's not at the level of a print shop machine but this unit produces output that I would put right in the middle of color inkjet printing and printshop quality.

    Setting the machine up was pretty simple once I removed all of the tape and guides that the printer shipped with. The quick start guide had lots of pictures and was easy to follow (this isn't my first printer setup). I have a Mac Pro and it was "Plug 'n Play" (although technically, there was no plugging it in). It took all of 45 seconds to get it up and running on my WiFi and about as much time for my Mac to find it and install drivers. The printer menu offers a pretty decent user experience and it's relatively easy to understand.

    It prints quickly and quietly, far more quiet than my Color Inket. The flatbed scanner works well. I grabbed a few different items to scan, from a faded credit card, to my drivers license, a couple of baseball cards, a receipt and a black and white resume and they all scanned well. I also tried the document feeder to scan a contract and it scanned the image quickly and at a high quality.

    The output of the printer and scanner are good enough for me to feel comfortable sharing with clients and partners.

    Excellent SOHO Printer

    This Brother color laser printer has been a step above the laser printer it is replacing in a number of areas. It has a slightly larger footprint and is quite a bit heavier - this is a solid printer. Once lifted into place and powered on, however it is an absolute pleasure to use.

    Setup was a breeze. I was able to plug in, power on, connect to WiFi and start a test print in less than five minutes. Mobile device support has been excellent for both Android and iOS. Every print job I've run through it so far has been fast and quiet and the color copies are exceptional.

    I was also extremely happy with the scan to computer capability and, just like printing and copying, it worked quickly and quietly. It handles card stock well through the single-sheet feeder but does not do auto duplex printing or scanning so if you need easy two-sided printing, copying or scanning this might not be the printer for you. It's not a deal-breaker for me, especially at this price point.

    I don't have any plans to use the fax capability, so I can't speak to that feature.

    I'm removing one star for the lack of duplexing and the weight but those are minor quibbles for me and I would definitely recommend this printer for its print quality, speed and quiet operation.

    Great All-In-One color laser printer.

    My girlfriend and I (mostly her) work in real estate so we are always printing. Having a mix of laser and ink jet printers thru the years this is one of the quietest I’ve had. The printer was easy to setup, which is nice since I’ve dealt with my fair share of printers that will make you want to pull your hair out, especially the software. Brothers software was very easy and straightforward, from unpacking to completely up and running it might have taken 30 minutes. We do a lot of scanning documents into the computer so the automatic document feeder was a must and we couldn’t be happier with its performance. The automatic feeder is fast and the software organizes everything perfectly so we don’t have to search were it is on the computer. Printing from an iPhone/iPad is easy with AirPrint built in. I had another brand that had AirPrint but it would never work right, so it’s nice to have a printer that can do it, especially a color laser printer. Only thing this model is missing is automatic duplex printing, though you can still do it manually. The touchscreen is the best I’ve used on any printer short of an expensive commercial/professional unit. If you don’t need automatic duplex printing this unit is an excellent printer for the price.

    Outstanding Laser Printer ; Hi-Def Comparison

    After two decades of getting suckered into buying cheap Inkjet printers I finally got fed up with that business model that give away the razor, only to repeatedly sell you the blades, on a perpetual basis.

    A recent Epson was the last straw. I’d regularly been using less expensive 3rd party ink, much to Epson’s chagrin. It works fine, is a fraction of the price, and employs reusable cartridges. Well my XP-410 died, nozzles kept clogging, head needing constant alignment, etc, replaced with XP-440.

    What a mistake that was. What they don’t tell you is 3rd party ink still works, UNTIL you update the Epson firmware, which absolutely BRICKS the printer from working when you try. What a blessing in disguise that return was.

    Enter an affordable laser jet printer, namely the Brother MFC-L3710-CW.

    Setup couldn’t have been any easier, with clearly marked tabs that require removal, and a large printed step-by-step guide (unnecessary). The color LCD screen displays an input keyboard for network information.

    Holy smokes!! What a difference!! I can’t stop showing ppl the differences between inkjet to laser jet, particularly for my guitar tablature where there is a plethora of fine detail that’s I didn’t realize just wasn’t clearly legible before. I can see the small numbers and symbols now clearly without ink smudges from previous inket technology.

    Last night my wife’s comment was that this printer makes “ high-definition prints”. See attached pictures to see if you agree (Brother laster on the left, Epson inkjet on the right, prev HP DeskJet for comparison)

    PROS

    + super high-quality, high-definition like prints

    + applicable for small business and home office

    + deceptively simple setup, WiFi network and go

    + fast image processing, 19 ppm print speed

    + driverless installation, automatic printer ID

    + 3.7-inch color touchscreen, ease of operation

    + 250-sheet paper tray

    + easy network setup, web app cloud integration

    + iPrint & Scan iOS and Mobile Printing works well

    + scan & email via individual tray, or document feeder

    + affordable price, wish I’d bought years ago

    + solid build construction

    + quiet operation

    CONS

    - size, it’s got multiple trays and fold outs

    - larger footprint than toy-sized inkjet printers

    - weight, too heavy for wire closet racks

    CONCLUSION :

    I’m really very happy with my first Brother printer. I wish i’d taken the plunge years ago, everything we’ve printed since then would’ve been of much higher quality. So thankful to finally reward my family with an affordable laser printer and prints that we can forever be proud of.

    Good home office/small bus color laser printer!

    Print quality is very good (note this is a color laser printer, not an ink jet) and prints just under 20 pages a minute either color or B/W. Copying is also fairly quick and renders nice crisp professional looking copies even in color.

    It scans quickly and accurately either via the auto feeder or the glass and allows you to push the scan from the printer directly to your pc from the printer onscreen menu.

    WiFi setup was quick and easy. It’s cartridges are 3 color toner cartridges and 1 Black cartridge that can be replaced individually.

    Holds a whole ream of paper at 250 sheets and allows for envelopes and manual feeding as well.

    It weighs about 50 pounds and fits perfectly on a filing cabinet (see pics).

    Only cons I found were that it doesn’t handle either duplex scanning or printing. (Upgrade to the next model up - the MFC-L3770 if you think you’ll be scanning or printing lots of double-sided things)

    Overall pleased with this multifunction laser printer and scanner.

    Glad I Upgraded!

    My wife and I are in education and have a small home office. We have been meaning to upgrade our old all-in-one printer for a while. After finally just doing it, we are wondering why it took us so long.

    I am not gonna say that it is whisper quiet, but it is much quieter than the old one we had for a few years. It’s quick, and we love that it is easy to setup and print to it wirelessly. One of my favorite things is that it was super easy to setup and print from my iPad. I have been trying to work primarily from my iPad Pro, and it is super convenient to just pull up the document and send the print from my iPad to the printer.

    Scanning, and scanning to a file is equally painless. We have also enjoyed the cloud services that are available in the menu system on the actual printer.

    After we initially set it up, the printer had to perform 2 updates back to back, but those were also fairly quick and easy to get done.

    If you have been looking to updating your printer situation, this should definitely be on your short list. Compact, quiet, speedy, and easy to setup.

    Great Printer for Small Business

    I am attorney at a small firm, and while we have a commercial grade printer/copier, we needed something smaller (cheaper than second commercial copier) that could handle similar tasks. This Brother all in one was up to the task and I am very pleased with its performance and relative ease of use. I would even recommend this for home use if you print/copy/scan in high volume. Only concern for home use is high cost of toner

    IN THE BOX

    Pretty minimal, you get the printer, power cord, CD with drivers/software and manuals. I wish it would have come with a USB cable since I plug mine into my computer, but I had an extra one.

    SETUP

    I consider myself pretty knowledgeable with computers and most things tech. But printers have always flummoxed me. For whatever reason I struggle with getting them setup properly and having to download all of the necessary software and drivers.

    I can say that the Brother printer was relatively easy. I plugged in the power cable, plugged in the USB and went to add printer on my computer and bam. I was off and printing. At that point I could copy and print without a problem. The scanning function, however, needed the drivers.

    At this point I put in the CD that came with the device (if you have a laptop with no CD drive, I'm certain you can download everything from the Brother website). I then installed everything, which much to my dismay, was a lot of extra programs. I'm a minimalist and don't necessarily like having a bunch of extra programs on my computer. I get it, some are necessary such as the scanning function but the other icons and what not installed on my computer is almost junk to me. I did, however, like the Brother Creative center, which is a link to a website with free templates and design ideas for business. It's not necessary for my work, but I could see that being very beneficial for a small business owner who needs to market or sell products.

    After the software was installed I was truly off and running (mostly, more on that in a sec). I could scan documents either through the 50 sheet feeder or on the scanning glass tray. On the printer when scanning, I simply use the touchscreen to scan to my computer and voila, a PDF appears in a folder that automatically pops up. For me, I then rename the folder and put it where I need it to be. I guess my only minor grip is that it saves the PDF in a weird folder, rather than just my Documents folder.

    From here I wanted to add the printer to my Wi-Fi network so my staff could use it as well. It was pretty straightforward to join a network from the touchscreen on the printer. After that, my staff could add the printer and download the necessary software to their computer to use just as I do with it attached via USB to my computer.

    All-in-all, the setup was pretty easy.

    FEATURES

    This all-in-one has some pretty robust features. Sure, it copies/scans/prints and faxes, but what I'm talking about is how you get the scans to where you want them to go. For my work, we simply save them to designated folders on a specific computer, but there are other ways to get documents to whatever device you need. If you need to save it directly to your phone (say you need it that moment and you're leaving) you can do so. You have to scan a QR code with your phone on the touchscreen, but then you're sent to a link that allows you to download that document to your phone or tablet on the spot. Something I wouldn't use a lot, but it would come in handy when you need it. You can also scan documents directly to a Sharepoint folder. You just need to go through the web management site to establish those "links" on the printer itself. Bottom line is that there's an option for everyone depending on your workflow. I would think Sharepoint would be awesome if I had a co-worker working out of the office remotely and needed a document. I could even have my staff scan me a document directly if I was out of the office. I'm usually more prepared and don't need this type of function, but it is nice to have during those "one off" times.

    PRINT/SCAN/COPY QUALITY/SPEED

    For high quality and fast printing, laser printers are always the way to go. This color laser printer doesn't disappoint. First, printing black and white text documents look great. Whether scanned or copied, there's no discernible difference. There's no, that document was scanned look. I was very impressed with the scan. Color photos look good, but I don't think many scanners will be able to replicate photos to look the way the photo itself does. But that's my personal opinion. I'm not generally printing or scanning photos so that doesn't matter to me. But I do like some documents to be printed in color when i change the font or print PowerPoint slides. Again, I'm impressed.

    The speed in which the Brother prints is pretty great. It can print a 50 page document in less than 2 minutes. I didn't count so don't hold me to it, but point is, you want be sitting there thinking it's taking a long time to print. And I found virtually no speed difference between B&W text and full color sheets.

    I do also want to add that the paper tray holds about a reams worth of paper which is nice. It doesn't help much if your printer can print lightning quick but can't hold much paper.

    CONCLUSION

    This is a great printer to be the center of any small business. To get the most out of it, I would recommend using it for high volume scanning/printing and multiple people using it (otherwise you might find a cheaper alternative). You don't have to worry about the print quality, it's fantastic and so far, I've been impressed with its reliability. I haven't once had to pull any stuck paper out of it, whether i was scanning or printing. The only drawback to a printer like this, and it exists with every color laser printer, is the sky high costs of toner. But that's something you'll never get away from.

    High quality photo printer

    I got the HP ENVY Photo 7855 All-in-One Printer, and right out of the box, it comes with about (4) 4x6 photo papers and a black ink cartridge and a color ink cartridge. Eager to test out the true quality, I downloaded some very high definition jungle scene to show vibrant colors and sharp details. Oh it picked it up nicely, and didn't take as long as I thought it would.

    The 8 1/2 x 11 paper tray doesn't hold many pages, but if this is ONLY for photos, then I don't need to store many in there.

    It has many cool features, like print from SD card (which was very full and it wouldn't even pull up the photos from my DSLR camera. That's not very good. I was waiting and waiting and it never loaded. I tried to set up my email and have it scan and send to it, but I kept getting an error message "Server error: The printer could not connect to the web services. The server might be busy or temporarily unavailable. Please try again later."

    My wifi was connected quickly, and was actually easy to set up. It connected to my phone via Bluetooth and it pulled the wifi connection settings that way. Pretty slick, actually. I am able to print from my phone, and grab image from Facebook. Very convenient. There is an HP app (HP Smart) on Google Play. That connects to the printer via WiFi or Bluetooth. I can also print to this printer from outside my house. Not sure how often I would, but I could print a photo and have it ready when I come home.

    There are some apps like access to my Google Drive, within the printer, that you can use too. Unfortunately I couldn't connect to any.

    The scanner was really good. I put in a store printed photo, and did a scan of it, and it turned out very nicely. In the glare of the photo, I could see different levels of black/grey in the inkjet printed photo vs the store printed photo, but I have never seen a photo inkjet printer not do that.

    Overall, I was impressed. My specific printer has connection issues, but after trying it again several days later, still the same result. I'll have to exchange it for a different one, as I'm excited to use the apps and email myself scanned files.

    My first printer ... bought for photos

    I love it! The first few months I get free ink per a certain amount of pages I print. I went ahead and opted in for the option of automatic mailed Ink when it senses the printer is low. Make sure you select the right option when printing your photo cause it sometimes defaults to the main tray. I use it even for documents, and regular work things. I am pleased with my purchase.

    Nearly perfect

    I love this printer. Everything about it (almost). It is VERY efficient and can do almost anything. I love how i can scan something and just sent it to my email. Connects very easily with the touch screen. Surprisingly easy on the tiny screen. It has only 1 flaw which may be a flaw in other printers, who knows. If you do not use your ink that much (I do not) the ink cartridges tend to be spotty at times. Cleaning them through the printer helps and so does manually but it can be a real pain. If your an everyday printer type of person especially with pictures then this is your baby. If not, its still your baby but just a little more grown i guess lol. hope this helps.

    Setup Paper Jams

    Noticed a few reviews about paper jam errors during setup, this happened to me too and was about to return product. I finally discovered that the black wheels inside arrived at an angle. It seemed correct since they were tight however after some persistence to fix this error, they tell you to pull up the blue piece to check wheels for paper, while that is open, I managed to press the whole wheel mechanism down more into place so that the black wheels were no longer at a slant (mostly the right side was up too high.) They should be level along with the blue handle, which also arrived at a slant. Hope this helps the next person who encounters this problem on a new, out of the box printer.

    Network Reliability

    The printer connected to my network immediately. All devices sent print jobs with no issues. I also used the HP app to finish set up. Printing speed is decent. The email function works good. HP has also stepped up internal security for this printer for better performance. The touch screen is very nice, has good response to touch. There are audibles with different uses. The printer acknowledges when a sheet of paper is inserted into the auto feed and the touch screen responds. Color tone Is good, but not fantastic. I consider this to be more of a great office use printer. There is no SD card slot. It does have USB, Ethernet and Fax Ports. The paper feed tray works better than previous HP printers that I have owned. I would have preferred a more rounded edge designed housing, instead to me, It looks like a big square block and very heavy. Over all I think this is a very good printer, has been very reliable so far. HP offers 300 pages per month printing for the first few months at no charge when you sign up for the instant ink program where you choose a set price per month to receive ink as needed that will kick in when the initial period ends. I would recommend this especially if you need a work horse.

    Does it all

    SETUP:

    Setup was relatively simple. Once you install the ink cartridges it will notify you that you need to install the HP Smart App to finish up. You can use your cell phone, tablet, or PC to do this. I used my Smartphone and it connected to the printer via Bluetooth and then I was able to setup the wireless from there along with everything else. It walks you through all the steps to finish up including a few optional ones. By doing this you also get a year extended warranty (for two years total) and you have 7 days to sign up for 6 months free of HP+. Which is a neat program explained below. Overall, I had no issues with this part of the setup or getting things to work.

    I then tried to setup the printer to my PC and ran into some issues. Again, the application is required to get the printer to work which is a bit frustrating. The application had a hard time finding my printer and it wasn’t until I rebooted my printer that my PC was able to find it.

    BUILD QUALITY:

    This printer is large, and you’d expect it to be heavy, but it isn’t. Which can be considered a pro or a con. The entire thing is made from plastic (for the most part). But I didn’t notice much creaking or issues and in general it feels solid and well built. The trays feel alright and I would prefer them to be a bit more solid and smooth. The touch screen works better than my previous printer and is a bit more intuitive, but I still think they could improve the OS to be better as it is still clunky and doesn’t feel like a modern device. But that is me being picky.

    SPEED/PERFORMANCE:

    They report that it can print 20 pages per minute of normal documents and 10 pages per minute for colored documents. Scanning appeared to be quick. I don’t have a phone line, so I didn’t test the fax. The legibility of the text that is printed is an 8/10. Since it comes with multiple ink cartridges (blue, yellow, _, and black) the colors also look good. But I found that images had a bit of blur to them. This improved with higher quality paper. But if you are wanting amazingly crisp print jobs I’d keep looking. Overall, the performance is right where I’d expect for this price point. I didn’t find it too be too loud. There is also a quiet mode which takes longer to print but reduces overall noise.

    HP+:

    You have 7 days to redeem 6 months free upon completion of setup. The maximum number of pages you can get per month during the free trial period is 700 pages. It allows you to choose a specific number of pages you plan to print each month and then charges you a set amount per month for it. Prices seem reasonable. If you don’t use all your pages, it can roll over into the next month. They only send out ink (with free shipping) when the printer itself registers it is low, so you are never out of ink. They also report that this is cheaper than buying retail ink and that it comes with more ink, so you refill less often. You can decide if that is just marketing or not. This entire service can be a pro or a con depending on how you feel about signing up for yet another monthly subscription to something. But I’d imagine if you are someone who prints a lot that this would be greatly appreciated, and you’d likely save money.

    FEATURES:

    As indicative of the name it is an All-In-One Printer. Which means that you can print documents (1 sided automatically but 2-sided if chosen), scan documents, and fax documents (if you have a phone line connected). You can also print either from your PC or from your phone/tablet. I printed multiple things from my phone and PC without any issues.

    Great All-in-One for Home or Small Business

    HP has changed style from the standard black All-in-One (AIO) printers to a three-tone color scheme of white, dark grey and light grey. The new décor is very pleasing to the eye, fits nicely in our son’s room.

    The size is perfect for a home office or home print station (SOHO) compared to a large office AIO. The HP Officejet Pro 8025 is a very capable AIO as well, printing, copying, scanning and photo printing performed brilliantly for a package this size. The 8025 will perform well in a small office that has less demanding printing jobs. Have connected the printer to all our home devices and will use as a backup to our larger HP AIO office printer if needed.

    Photo Printing knocked my socks off, lovely rich colors and definition of a ceremony picture we had taking of our kid. Very nice.

    Panel

    - Flip up design for easy viewing, nice.

    - Bit small but adequate 2.7” Touchscreen.

    - Easy navigation – full explanation on downloadable user guide.

    - Tap on the “?” on the home screen will bring up a help screen which includes “How to Videos”, to cool.

    App

    - HP Smart assists you in the setup, scanning, printing, sharing, and managing the HP printer. Share documents and images simply through email, text messages, cloud and social media services, i.e. Google Drive, Facebook, iCloud, and Dropbox.

    - Android app is full featured for printer management.

    - Printing from Android, Chrome devices and iOS.

    - Google drive printing - kid loves this feature for printing school projects/papers from home or school.

    - Supports Print from Anywhere.

    Networking

    - Almost to simple to add to network. Windows 10 PC’s can scan the network and install printer and launch app if you want.

    - Connections: 1 Ethernet; 1 Wireless 802.11b/g/n; 1 RJ-11 Fax.

    - Was the simplest, easiest and quickest network setup of any printer I have used.

    -

    Full feature faxing (with contacts) scanning and copying capabilities.

    Paper capacity is impressive for small office printer:

    - Paper handling input, standard 225-sheet input tray, 35-sheet ADF

    - Paper handling output, standard 60-sheet output tray

    - Legal paper

    - Envelopes

    - Photo papers

    - Double sided duplexing

    Monthly duty cycle 20,000 pages

    4 print cartridges (1 each black, cyan, magenta, yellow)

    The HP 8025 is rated with the best for cost of operation, that is Big Plus in a smaller footprint printer!

    The HP Officejet Pro 8025 gives you the features and capabilities that are found in much larger AIO systems for less cost and fits nicely into any SOHO environment.

    Smaller & quieter yet full of features!

    I've been an HP printer fan for....well forever. My previous printer was the HP OfficeJet Pro 8610 - which has been a tried and true printer, scanner, copier and fax. However, with some updates to my desktop and laptop computers - I have had GREAT DIFFICULTY scanning to my PC from these older HP printers.

    Enter the new HP OfficeJet Pro 8025. First thing I notice is the new printer is about 40% smaller. That helps on my desk space. Next, it is quieter than my previous model. Third, it's a new and modern (two tone) design. Fourth - it scanned to my PC on the first attempt, and worked flawlessly! That alone is the WINNING ticket!

    So far - I'm very impressed and will be setting this as my default printer next week.

    A Clumsy Vending Machine For Ink Cartridges

    Everything about this printer is an embarrassment for HP.

    Physically, it is noticeably larger than HP printers with similar printing capabilities from years ago.

    The paper tray is quite small (especially for business printing) and HP has redesigned how you load papers into the tray - it is wholly unintuitive.

    Above the paper tray is an extending plastic platform designed to automatically reach out to catch your printed pages so that they don't shoot out onto your floor. Even when I printed the initial alignment page, this mechanism failed to engage.

    There are no ports on this model for memory cards to print from. Admittedly, this is not being marketed as one of their photo printers but I don't understand how documents from memory cards are not part of office printing necessities.

    During setup, this model immediately identified the included ink cartridges as official HP ink cartridges. A little bit of research alerted me that this printer will only accept genuine HP ink cartridges.

    It will not allow you to print in black ink alone if your color cartridges are empty or are not installed.

    Scanning, faxing, copying, and printing times are average. Nothing stellar. Document printing and color printing (including photo printing) are average. Nothing stellar.

    What does work? Their instant ink program - an ink subscription service (their "Ink Of The Month" club). Everything about their service is well defined and clear.

    But in an new printer era where they will need to compete with other printers with HUGE non-cartridge ink reservoirs, please take a look at the size of the cyan cartridge that fits this printer in the attached picture below.

    For a machine that is clearly being marketed as a source of ink cartridge sales, you can find other models with more or better features for WAY less money.

    There is no way that this can be an economical purchase for home or office.

    Great performance; bad instructions

    This is another great all in one from HP as far and performance. The only criticisms I have are that there was no clear direction to remove the tape over a very small symbol for wi-fi. Could not get the copier to work; the directions in the paperwork and online were useless and so I kept getting a general error message. Took me a long time to figure it out. Also, the model and serial number tag is SO SMALL, I couldn't read the information even with a magnifying glass. Took me several tries to get what I hope is the correction information. I have never had an HP product like that before, and I have had printers and computers!

    Great printer for small office with few trade offs

    I work out of a home office and, while I don't run through stacks of paper a month, I have periods where I need to print quite a bit in one go. More so, I have a need to scan stacks of documents regularly, so I find great use with document feeders. For my office needs I currently employ a HP OfficeJet 8600 Plus. Until I tested the OfficeJet Pro 9025.

    First thing, out of the box, this printer is bright, bearing a slight resemblance to the 7000 series OfficeJets with a two-tone color scheme of white and grey. The middle of the body is white, capped off with a grey lower paper tray and grey document feeder on top. It's a much sharper appearance than the grey/brown of the 6000 and 8000 series printers. Additionally, the design language is much sharper and more modern, foregoing the rounded, sometimes "bubbly" design language of the 8000 series in favor of boxier lines and 90 degree angles. It's very square and rectangular, and even features a flat top to the document feeder, which has historically carried a more rounded apperance.

    The new design language is very appealing, and seems more focused on function than form. It has a very purposeful, functional, and professional appearance to it. It also lends a more slimmed down look to the printer, which makes sense given that the overall box is indeed slimmed down by several inches. My 8600 was purchased because it supported fax, printing, scanning and copying, 2-sided printing, and a document feeder on top, but the machine is bulky and heavy. The 9025 manages to squeeze all this in to a smaller package, indicating some nice internal design efficiencies. While you don't move a printer around all that often once it's setup, moving between the 8600 Plus to the 9025 reveals quite a difference in weight.

    In size, the 9025 is the same height as the 8600 Plus, but squeezes a second paper tray into that space, and maintaining the same capabilities with the document feeder. Front to back and side to side, however, the 9025 bests the 8600 Plus by quite a bit. My 8600 Plus shared a desktop with my photo printer, and had only 19.5" wide and 20.25" deep to fit in. Because of the printer size, it had to face perpendicular to my other printer, with the output tray kept in most of the time to avoid bumping it. The 9025 fits facing parallel to my other printer with room to spare, and even with the output tray adding 6" to the depth, only sticks out .375" at the front.

    To accomplish this, it appears HP made some internal changes to the printer, stacking things a bit taller and further back in the box. The output tray sits a bit higher and a bit recessed into the case, and fits 2 paper trays beneath it compactly. The doc feeder on top also seems slimmed down a bit, allowing it to fit in the more compact design. The only issue I really have is with the power cord placement. If it were offset a bit, or even if HP included a right-angle cord, this printer could sit even further back.

    I do believe some sacrifices were made to accomplish the smaller and lighter design, and after playing with it for about 2 weeks now, I think it's apparent in the feel of some of the materials.

    First, the plastic on the 9025 feels more flexible and thinner than the 8600. When I open and close the doc feeder cover I feel like I am about to break it. This contrasts the 8600 which uses a latch to open and close, and feels better. Additionally, the overall feel of the 9025 is more plasticky than the 8600, and leads to some question of durability under heavier use or in environments with multiple people using it daily.

    Second, the print head has a spongy and less reassuring feeling when inserting printer cartridges. With the 8600 there is a tactile feel to the cartridges clicking into place, letting you know they seated properly. With the 9025 I found myself checking the cartridge a couple times to make sure it was in all the way. They also made squeaky sounds when I inserted and removed them, and though that might go away with time, it has not yet.

    They also sacrificed on the screen size with this model, opting for a smaller screen that is just over 1.5" tall and 2" wide, where the 8600 was about double the width. With all the features and apps being added to these printers, the screen size is really important, and I think this one is just too small for it's purpose. They also have a swipe down from the top feature to access settings and information, similar to a smart phone, and this menu is more challenging to read on the smaller screen. I do like the new mechanics for adjusting the screen angle, which doesn't require a button pinch of press, like my 8600, but I also believe this might be the reason for a little bit of movement when interacting with the screen. At first I thought there was a slight click action or sound when pressing a button on the screen, but it appears to just be the screen moving a bit under pressure.

    Moving beyond the look and feel of the new printer, from a performance perspective it does very well. Setting it up out of the box was really easy, thanks to the HP Smart software guiding through setup. Additionally, you can use the HP Smart app on your phone to setup the printer via bluetooth. I did run into issues connecting to the printer from just under 6 feet away, and found it woked best standing 2 feet or less in front of it.

    Once ink is inserted, the printer primes the cartridges, and I noticed it to be a bit quieter than the 8600 Plus, but also a bit higher pitched. My 8600 had a more mechanical sound to it when priming new cartridges, but I don't think this indicates any issues or performance problems.

    What was indicative of a change, though, was the sound and action when the printer wakes to print. The 8600 makes a loud, mechanical sound when it wakes to warm up, and takes a noticeably longer amount of time than the 9025. In contrast, the 9025 is quick and relatively quiet when waking to copy or print. Additionally, the 9025 is quieter during normal operation as well, whether printing, scanning, or copying, even on the document feeder.

    I found the print quality of the 9025 to be really good as well, providing crisp and clean colors, as well as sharp text, which my photo printer does not do so well with. I would still use my photo printer for high quality photo prints, since the color depth and quality of photos is great than the OfficeJet printers produce. That said, I have always found the OfficeJet printers to handle text prints very well, and the 9025 continues that trend. Running through a copy test, however, revealed some areas for improvement with the 9025. Using the standard HP test print, I copied on both the 8600 and 9025, and the 8600 seemed to provide a cleaner copy, producing sharper edges and slightly better color. Both printers struggled with the grey text at the base of the sheet, though, with the 8600 barely able to present something identifiable as text, and the 9025 providing only marginally better results. With the higher contrasting text both did fine, so it seems to be a struggle point with the lower contrast of the grey. 2 sided printing was also easy and clean, though speed of that did not seem noticeably faster than the 8600. I tried to capture some of the differences in print quality in one of the images I added, but it might be difficult to completely see them.

    One BIG thing I have been avoiding with the HP printers is the subscription ink plan. My fluctuation in usage means it won't really benefit me, and I am also not a fan of subscription services tied to my daily business needs. The ink being delivered as needed with Instant Ink is a cool idea, but I don't like the idea of HP tracking what I print, or making it more difficult for me to print if I decide to use a 3rd party cartridge. I have also read some issues with customer service around the subscription, with people having difficulty canceling, or getting potentially overcharged due to peak printing periods. I did decide to sign up for a trial of it through the website, and while I can see my usage and plan info, I haven't used it enough in the past 2 weeks to be able to review the service yet.

    Overall, I like this printer very much and am going to give it a shot as a daily replacement for my 8600 PLus, which is a big step for me. The compact size is a HUGE benefit for my office space, especially with it still including 2-sided printing, a doc feed, and the 2 paper trays. I wish the screen were about double the size, and I wish the feel of the plastic on it didn't feel as flexible or flimsy as it does. Because of those issues I want to drop half a star off the rating, but I still think this is a fine machine for someone who has a home business or work-from-home office that needs these features. Because I can't drop a half star, and I don't think it warrants 4 stars, I am leaving it as 5. It's fast, quiet, compact, light, and very functional, and I think it's definitely worth strong consideration.

    Great printer for nearly heavy duty office work

    Printer came in to which I measure a 19x15x19 inch box, well padded and everything so the printer inside stays safe during transport.

    Of course the printer outside the box itself, the footprint is 17” x 13”, and about 12” high I believe.

    This printer is best if it’s sat on its own small table or perhaps on a dresser, or average nightstand. I have mines on the far left of my corner desk where my desktop computer is on and it barely fits; the upper shelving of my desk will get in the way when it comes to opening the scanner lid. I can remove the shelving or, set this elsewhere where there is room (like it’s own small table). Just be sure to have enough space. This is not your usual short or compact desk jet printer.

    Of course I followed the instructions in the correct order; installing the ink was tricky. When opening the compartment door, and installing the ink, I made sure I pressed everything all the way in, and by the diagram there illustrates a click icon.

    There wasn’t much of a noticeable click, but a soft one. Closed the compartment door, then I get an error of a “print head” missing and to correct or reinstall the ink.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled twice, and finally got it to work.

    I did all the setting up of the printer through the HP smart app, and everything works well and printed out a test page, and other stuff (resumes and coupons). Fine print quality and impressive overall over the previous older deskjet printer I have (which is also HP).

    And I’m all printing wirelessly over WiFi. It’s visible on my phone, tablet, and desktop and laptop computer.

    The paper loading tray is easy to use to reload paper, and I’m sure the ink will last longer through more printing until comes the time to replace.

    I believe this HP printer is a great investment and, from a standpoint this looks to be an office machine, either good for work in an office setting or casual work done from home (homework, photos, etc).

    A Pro Document Printer/Scanner/Copier

    With a few exceptions, the Pro9025e is an excellent choice for printing, scanning, and copying. Except for one important function, it is the best OfficeJet I have seen from HP in quite a while. The merits and demerits are:

    *SETUP: Once you have loaded the app onto your computer, setup should only take a few minutes. My experience, however, was not a positive one, and I believe it was due to a glitch in the software. Every time the setup process got to the point of connecting to my mesh wi-fi, setup failed because there was no place to enter my network password. No matter what I tried, the same result was experienced. About to lose my religion, I shut it down and walked away. The next day I tried again and had two failures. On the third attempt, the password entry page opened and then quickly went away. Another attempt got to the entry page and, thankfully, stayed on screen so I could enter the password. The ink cartridges loaded easily, and all was a go.

    *PRINTING: Document printing is a breeze! Set your parameters, press print, and your document is ready in seconds. Quality is clear and clean. In addition, if you need two-sided printing, the Pro9025e handles that job like a champ. Ink is quick-dried, as it should be. In fact, it can print 2 sides in the time some other printers take to print one.

    Photo printing is a different story. I have yet to find an All-in-One HP that prints photos well, and this one is awful. Prints are not sharp, there are broken white lines across photo, and very wet ink. I intended to scan and attach examples, but, after 24 hours, they are still wet. So, the attachments are photos of the printed wet photos. If, however, you have no plan to print photos, don’t let this issue deter you from considering this excellent printer for documents only.

    *SCANNING: One of my peeves with HP all-in-ones previously is no duplex scanning, but the 9020e not only can duplex, but it is also much quicker than others that I have experience with. The first scan was a WOW moment. Great improvement HP!

    *COPYING: Copies fast and well. Easy duplexing is another plus.

    Apart from the awful photo printing, the 9025e is an excellent machine. With that caveat, I would recommend it.

    Perfect printer for home

    This HP printer is better than those tri color cartridges. More ink and faster printing. Double sided scan and print and also has fax. Bulk ink tank printers are great if you print constantly but most home users will experience clogged print heads.

    For me this is the best choice for home and small office use

    Excellent SOHO printer

    We already have a 90 series HP printer but we wanted one with more features as ours didn’t have automatic dual sided printing and scanning. Once we saw that HP had the 9025e with all the features we wanted we had to grab one.

    Unboxing:

    The printer comes really well boxed sitting in cradled in Styrofoam corners. Once the top ones were removed it was simple to grab the two handles of the protective bag the printer was in and lift it out of the box. About the simplest larger sized printer unboxing I’ve done. Inside the box is the printer, cartridges, power cable and documentation. The printer itself is pretty large “a good bit over our old one” and you’ll need a good spot to set it up.

    Setting up:

    Like our other HPs we’ve had before we just placed the printer where we wanted it, plugged in the power cord. I wanted this to be hardwired on our network and there’s a switch right next to it that’s connected to our router. There’s an orange plastic plug in the Ethernet port located on the back below the phone jacks. You have to remove that plug to connect your Ethernet connection. I use a Obi VOIP box for our phone and fax so I hooked the main line from the Obi to the Tel line in on the back also.

    After hooking up power the printer was powered up and gave instructions about inserting the ink cartridges so we did that. Inserting the cartridges is very straight forward, each is color coded and you just push them in till they click into place. The printer, after going through the new cartridge setup asked to print an alignment page which I let it do and then placed that page in the scanner and let it scan the page and finish the alignment.

    The printer has a small LCD full color touch screen just like our old model and can be tilted for a better viewing angle, it’s used to manually preform scans/faxing/copying and adjust all the settings. There are a lot of options in the menus on the screen and you’ll want to familiarize yourself with those functions and settings but for the most part you can set up everything from the apps.

    All our computers are Windows based and phones are Android so well be referencing only those operating systems. I already had the HP Smart app installed on our computers so it was easy enough to go into that and have it set up a new printer. If you don’t currently have the HP Smart app installed then you will need to use the Windows Play store to download and install it. The Windows app is pretty straight forward and has a simple interface for what you want to do.

    This printer also has Wi-Fi built in but since we’ve placed it near a router that option probably won’t be used, at least not yet.

    Use:

    I have to say this is one fast inkjet printer, printing documents is lightning fast and there’s barely any warm up time. Text is crisp and clear and colors turn out very vibrant even when using cheap 20lb paper “that’s the paper used in the attached picture”. I also wanted to try out the scanner to check out copy quality and was amazed how fast it copied a color magazine cover. I set the detail on high and from start to finish it scanned and printed a full color copy in 28seconds, “that’s fast for a color inkjet”. The copy of the magazine in some areas came out clearer and in the original cover, especially the motorcycle helmet and how the colors stand out.

    We’ve printed multiple documents and some photos and the most noticeable difference from our older 1st gen 90 series model is this one is way faster. The 9025e also has two paper trays so you can either double up your paper stock or have two different types “copy paper/photo paper, or copy paper/envelopes”. The upper tray “#2” already has the guides set up for envelopes which makes it very convenient if you are printing letters and want to include the envelope printing at the same time.

    I’ve also installed the HP Smart app on our phones, and after setting up the HP account so the printer can be accessed anywhere I tried printing a couple PDF documents, “worked perfectly” and a picture of a Hibiscus plant in our back yard, well the picture looks like it was professionally printed and you can’t make out any lines in the print from the inkjet process. I even used non HP brand generic glossy photo paper “loaded into the top tray” for this and the results were excellent, “you can see the attached photo of the magazine cover and flower” although you really have to see in person how well these came out.

    We don’t send or receive many faxes but it’s a nice option to have when needed. I did a test fax to a friend of ours fax machine and it worked perfect even with using a VOIP box “which can be tricky at times” and he was able to send it back without a hitch.

    Conclusion:

    With HP+ and the automatic ink refills for 6 months I know we are going to be doing a lot more printing than normal. Their plans start reasonably cheap “around $5 a month” you get 100 pages a month “more than we usually print”, and there are plans that get down to $0.99 a month if you are a light printer. The maximum plan for $25 gets you 700 pages per month, which should be enough for a SOHO or everyday small office. And in the end, instead of a cartridge running out during an important print, the printer will have HP sent out cartridges as soon as they start to get low, “can’t beat that if you are like me and always forget to order cartridges”

    With the speed this printer prints at and the convenience of being able to print/scan both sides automatically this printer has filled in all the gaps that were missing “and features we wanted” from our old printer. So if you are looking for a full featured printer that can print, scan, copy, and fax this is going to be the AIO printer for you.

    A solid workhorse

    I have been using HP Inkjet printers for years and have been fairly satisfied with the performance and quality of their printers. I currently own a Officejet Pro 8710 printer and love it. Having never seen the HP OfficeJet Pro 9025 All-in One printer as it was sent to me as a pre-release item to be reviewed, I was expecting to see another version of my 8710, but this printer was altogether different looking. I has a much more business like appearance similar to the HP Officejet Pro 7740.

    Setup was fairly straightforward. After removing the packing materials and powering on the printer, I opened the front and installed the ink cartridges. I downloaded the HP Smart app to my phone following the included instructions. Evidently this printer is so new that you have to download a new, yet to be released version of the smart app. From the software you select add a printer and the app walks you through the process. Within 10 minutes, the printer was up and running. The display asked me to do a scanner alignment which first prints an alignment document which you place on the scanning bed. The small screen prompts you to continue and quickly performs it’s alignment.

    Now for the specs:

    Much like any decent all-in-one, the HP Officejet Pro 9025 can print, copy, scan and FAX. It prints up to 24 ppm black, up to 20 PPM Color. This beats my Officejet Pro 8710 by 2 pages per minute. It can do 2 sided copy and scan and has optical character recognition capability. It also has two 250-sheet input trays which is excellent (my 8710 only has 1. The output tray can hold up to 100 sheets. Based on these specs, it seems more equipped for heavy duty office work rather than occasional home office use. My one gripe is the 2.75” screen (I had to measure it diagonally since the spec wasn’t listed in the printer setup materials or on the box). The screen seems small and it is a little hard to read at certain angles.

    Performance wise it did very well. I know it is only 2 PPM faster than my current printer, but it seemed a lot faster. It also seemed a lot mor sturdy while printing without the swaying my 8710 seems to do when printing lines of text. As expected, the print quality is excellent, both in black and white and color. Litter to know bleeding occurred even when printing a photo on regular printer paper.

    This printer is also “Instant Ink” ready. HP Instant ink is a plan you can sign up for that charges a fee based on the number of pages you print each month. The printer sends ink level information to HP, and when the printer runs low on ink, replacement ink cartridges are shipped to you. You do not need to purchase replacement ink cartridges from retail stores when you are enrolled in HP Instant Ink. I have never signed up for this service, but I can see it being good if you do a lot of printing.

    I am very impressed with the quality and performance of the HP Officejet Pro 9025. Since it is not a released product as of this review I have no idea what it costs, so I can’t give an opinion on it’s value proposition is, but it is a solid performer.

    The Best AIO for the Price

    HP has always been a strong competitor in the AIO market and the OfficeJet Pro has always been near the top of the line.

    Its a larger unit but still small enough to fit on a printer hutch, in a corner of a small home office, but large enough to handle a solid amount of auto-feed scanning, a full A4 on the scanning glass, and half a ream of paper in the printer tray.

    A few years ago HP made their printers Smart enabled literally with their HP Smart app. This has been good and bad in my opinion. For mobile devices on the same wireless SSID it makes printing simple, but for wired devices or multiple mesh network SSIDs (ISP and home mesh) or connected to different routers, this can be a bit of a nightmare if you don't know how to port forward or bridge different IP ranges across multiple routers. Anyways, that's a different story to tackle.

    Overall an AIO is an amazing device, it will make previously tedious paperwork, printing, scanning, documenting much less tedious. Its amazing for anyone running a Small Office or Home Office, anyone who does a lot of online sales and shipping, and it is an absolute lifesaver when it comes to major life transactions like buying a house. The combination of being able to scan, print and upload directly documents directly from your computer is an amazing time saver and probably a big reason places like Kinkos no longer exist.

    In terms of set-up, I highly recommend using the wireless setup. I wasn't able to get the printer detected using the LAN. Make sure whatever device you use to set-up is on the same SSID and VLAN if you have multiple. Also, for any windows based devices like laptops and desktops, once you've setup with your phone and the mobile HP Smart App, you can very easily just add the printer via IP.

    I previously had the HP OfficeJet Pro 9025 and the 9025e looks to be an incremental improvement with slightly faster printing and scanning. The touchscreen also seems to be more responsive, but otherwise the two units look identical. I will end up moving the 9025 upstairs and connecting it to a different wireless SSID so we have better coverage and flexibility in the house. Great to see the 962 is the same cartridge system being used.

    Lastly, this printer includes 6 months of HP+ which is a subscription ink program that offers free ink in the first 6 months and 1 year additional warranty. You really want to see how much you actually print, but for our household we typically don't print that much, especially in color, so we probably won't keep the subscription. If you print a lot however, this could be a really handy feature.

    Overall, you can't go wrong with these HP AIO and this is best-in-class and does not burn through ink as fast as previous lower-end units I owned did. Definitely recommend at this price point for the features, performance, and ease of use!

    Great copy/print/email, avg scan, affordable

    Print Quality (4.5 out of 5): Great print quality even with small font size. Produces good color or grey scale photos, and good presentation printouts. Print speed is as specified (around 22 ppm for black), but when I tried to print a large report with a couple of hundred pages, the device struggled a lot to finish the job. After every 30/40 pages the machine takes rest for 2-4 minutes to cool down. This is not a heavy-duty printer, and it is for home use only.

    Print Cost (4.5 out of 5): Similar models of Brother printer costs less in printing, but this canon device is not bad. The standard black toner costs around 4c per page while the high yield toner can cost less than 2.5c per page in eco mode. The standard black toner that came with the printer was able to print 1700+ pages, and a new high yield toner cartridge (Canon 054h XL black) that I purchased later was able to print 3500+ pages in eco mode. It is annoying that the printer shows low ink warning once ink level gets below 50%, and with this warning I was able to print around 1500 more pages full of text in eco mode. The warning simply does not make any sense. So, forget about the warning and keep printing.

    Scan (3 out of 5): With max resolution of 600X600, the scan quality is not impressive- both with the flat-bed scanner or with the auto document feeder (ADF). I was able to set the resolution to 1200X600 from the remote manager, but scan quality did not improve much. Scanned fonts come out dull and not sharp. Good thing- the auto feeder can hold 50 sheets (letter or legal) and can scan both sides in a single pass with a good speed. It is okay for day to day scanning, but for sensitive official documents I still prefer some scanner app installed on my android phone. Unlike these apps, the scanning software included with this Canon printer does not have any post-processing intelligence. Lastly, the flat-bed scanner portion is unnecessarily 3 inches thick (compared to HP MFP M428fwd or M283fdw)- making the device look large on my desk.

    Copy (5 out of 5): Fast and crisp print, both from flat-bed scanner or from ADF. ADF can print both sides in single pass pretty fast. ID card copying is also good.

    Email, Fax (4 out of 5): It’s a relief that hard copies can directly go into your email directly from the printer. But the setup process is not easy, and may require an expert hand. I haven’t tried fax.

    Setup and Connectivity (4 out of 5): Software and Wi-Fi setup are straight forward. Printer quickly wakes up from sleep once command is sent to printer through Wi-Fi. The remote manager is a great help, with which you can use your web browser from your computer to remotely monitor ink levels, see usage logs (for print, scan, mail or fax), and control all different settings without touching the printer itself. That’s something cool!

    Touch Display (3 out of 5): LCD touch screen is not sensitive, most of the time I have to touch twice or press hard for the same action, the user interface on the LCD screen is not well-organized, and some of the very common settings are not readily available. However, you can customize some of it from remote manager.

    Overall (4 out of 5): With less than 300$ budget, if you are looking for professional quality printing in black, decent color print, Wi-Fi and email connectivity, and average scan quality- everything of office in a single home device, you should get this. I am happy with the purchase.

    Nice All-In-One Printer/Copier

    Found I needed to replace an old Brother Color Laser Printer I had for over 10 years... it apparently didn't like the newest Windows 10 update. Besides, it was time.

    I have used a B/W Canon All-In-One recently and really liked it, so I decided to buy the MF 644... primarily because it fits in the Printer slide out cabinet in my desk. Tight, but it fits.

    Out of the box set-up was easy. But the driver set-up is not real intuitive so you really need to follow the instructions closely. After I had the printer up and running (USB connection to my desktop) I set up the wireless connections to my laptop and handheld devices. I found downloading the Canon Printer app to my phone and tablet made connection hassle free. Again... follow the instructions.

    The printer is not fast but fast enough for home office use. The copy function was easy and the copies were clear and neat. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase. Having a fully functional "All-in-One" office machine that fits my needs and my "space" is nice.

    The added bonus was getting a price match and saved $80.

    Thanks Best Buy for taking care of that.

    Great Printer

    Needed to replace our inkjet printer. Not having to print often lead to clogged print heads and wasting ink doing nozzle checks and realigning.

    Due to the affordable prices of laser printers decided to get the Canon imageClass. Set up was easy when following instructions. Downloaded the Canon Business Print app for greater control and more printing options when printing from an iPad. App works well when scanning documents to store in iCloud. Finally able to scan and shred hard copies of our documents on file. The document feeder works great and is worth the extra money. Also must mention, though I haven’t done extensive tests, initially print quality appears to be great. Says a lot coming from a picky graphic designer.

    A few minor issues: sometimes takes a couple tries to get iPad to connect to printer when in sleep mode. Prints a little slower than expected but still way faster than inkjet. Seems to handle heavy weight paper and labels okay.

    Overall very happy with our purchase. If you’re on the fence, I would suggest you get it.

    Exactly what I wanted for home use

    I was tired of messing with the printer every time I needed to print something. We don't use the printer very often, but when I do, I need it to work. We have been through about 4 ink jet printers over the years and many $ on cartridges. Every time I would print, I would have to re-print because the heads needed cleaned or something else was wrong. So far with this Laser, it has not had any issues.

    With the kids in school, I know in the coming years they will be using it more and more. I wanted something that could copy and scan. This seems to be a great home solution.

    Great printer.

    I love the printer. It is a bit heavy and was awkward for a senior to lift. The color is more natural and accurate than my HP laser jet pro MFP M377dw and it scans on both sides of the sheet with one pass.

    Surprisingly good Multifunction Printer.

    Surprised with Brother again.

    So I currently own their Laser Printer HL-L2360DW and have owned this for over 5 years now. Have gone through 2 toners and no problems yet. My old laser product has been discontinued BTW so that tells you how long I have had it.

    So this MFC-J4335DW has initial likes with me. Set up was simple. I had an initial confusion with Wifi setup. But then again the instructions were not 100% clear here but I got past that. After that setup with mobile was a snap. Also note to Brother the product is not listed in the check box when registering the product probably because this is a brand new product and website my not be updated with their data base yet. So I picked a product number that fell between this one and it accepted it.

    I really really like being able to scan to a cloud based site. I set up a junk user for all my family to scan their school and work stuff to and gave them access to it and it works great.... Scanning was nice. Easy mobile use.

    I could not test the fax function. Not many folks use faxes anymore except for medical folks or medical related work.

    Front panel button use was easy. Screen was easy to read and instructions were easy to follow as well.

    Printing was pretty fast. The huge ink cartridges are a plus. Look at it. It's the size of my palm. Holy cow.

    So going back to the my older laser printer. If Brother product stayed the same with the quality, I would think that this printer would stand the test of time as well.

    Nicely done Brother. I would recommend this product for home work school use.

    Fast and crisp printing quality

    I am very picky when it comes to printers in my home office, especially ink jet printers. This Brother MFCJ4335DW INKvestment Tank Inkjet printer is part of the long line of Brother printers with the new hybrid between standard ink cartridge system and a cartridge/onboard tank. This means that Brother INKvestment Tank printers have expanded ink capacity, therefore offering you more time printing before needing a refill.

    I was impressed that although this is a good sized inkjet printer, it was light and not too heavy to move around on my home office. Set up was very simple with plug in, turn on, and follow the simple instructions. Installing the ink cartridges requires you to shake each one up first before installing them into their assigned slot. After ink installation was complete, you are instructed to printing up test pages, scanning the test page, and setting up the WiFi system. The MFCJ4335DW offers fax, scan, copy and web printing capability. The display and control center dominate the printing side of the printer. Here, you see the small LCD display (which also gives you an ink status!), device options, control pad and number keys. It is pretty straight forward, although I have not utilized the fax machine component yet. The right side of the control panel has a nice printing option feature of Stop/Exit, Black or Color.

    Connecting this to my WiFi was very simple with the addition of the number pad. I also was able to connect my iPhone to the built in WiFi so that I could print directly onto here. The bottom of the printer has the printer tray as well as the print job tray. I was stunned at the quality of the prints, both color and bw. Equally impressing was when I was using this for single page and double-sided print jobs. It printed multiple pages of both single-sided and double-sided pages in remarkable times. As an inkjet printer, I didn’t see any streaks or noticeable smears. I do use 24lb bright printing paper for additional quality print jobs.

    So far, I have found no issues or any area of concerns. This is a very capable and remarkable printer and I highly recommend it for anyone with home office needs or school needs due to distance learning.

    Ink cartridges print pages 3,000 Black 1,500 Color Standard Capacity

    6,000 Black 5,000 Color Extra Capacity

    The print quality is excellent, print speed is good, make sure you have the page holder extended or else it will end up on the floor. The basic setup went off without a problem, just a little time consuming.

    Making copies from the unit. Automatic duplexing is not available from the sheet feeder. You must insert the page on the glass then turn it over and re-insert it.

    I did not test the fax part. No land line available at my location.

    I rated this unit 4 stars because I could not find on the box or in the packaging information as to duty cycle, pages printed per minute, and the fact that it does not do automatic duplexing from the sheet feeder.

    I would not recommend this unit to a small business. It is however well suited for a home/dorm printer.

    Great For The Home Office

    I'm really pleased with thisprinter's speed and design. It's like the ones at the work office, but great for my hoome office. easy to setup on my pc, once the wifi is connected, of course. Unfortunately, I'm still having issues connecting it to my phone and chromebooks. Everything is in a place where it's pretty accessible from my pcanyway. So that's really not much of a problem. The toner cartriges are easy to install and it is said that they should last about a year , but that's rwith moderate use. Scanning is quick and easy as well. With easy to read desplay and very accessible button layout there isn't a problem getting things done. From printing to scanning and even faxing , you can get it done with this $149.99 USD home office printer. If it were just a little easier to connect my other devices(phone/chromebook) I would give this a 5 star rating. But you can't go wrong with this affordable machine thatalso makes it a snap to get ink delivered on time, simply by signing up for the program. I do recommend this printer for you home offive use.

    Super quick set up

    I have had a printer that for some reason, my laptop refused to connect to. I was also always buying ink of one color or another.

    This was super fast to set up and I was printing from my laptop right away. It connected to my wifi right quickly in a few simple steps

    The colors are good, I can select black and white if needed to save on color ink.

    They say the ink will last a year. We will see if that is true! I don't print daily or even weekly but it will be nice to know the ink is ready to go.

    Expected quality

    All in all the experience i have had from this printers is on par with what i was expecting. The this printers does everything that i was expecting it to do, but in a much more compact design. Usually, all in ones seem to be bulky and almost too big to easily move around. This printer is everything but, quiet, compact and speedy. Set up was a breeze too and with its efficient ink management its bound to be a money saver in the long run. If you are looking for a middle of the road, all in one this printers is a must have for the price point due to its ease of set up, compactness and its ink efficiency.

    Great multi-function printer

    This printer is excellent, especially when you get tired of doing spontaneous frequent ink cartridge replacement. I have printed many pages so far, and there is still plenty of ink in the ink containers. After removing all shipping items from the printer, I plugged the printer and followed the simple instructions. I placed the ink containers in the printer and proceeded with downloading and installing the appropriate driver for this specific printer on the Brother website. The entire setup did not take more than 20 minutes, and I could also print from my mobile phone. I like the Brother Mobile Connect App that allows the users to print from anywhere with a mobile device. You can also use your phone to scan, copy and photograph prints. The print quality is very sharp, excellent color prints, and deep rich dark blacks. My wife uses the printer for last-minute print photos for her book collage projects; she loves how colorful the photo prints come out. Scanning is easy and quick with the front panel button. I do not have a landline at my office, so I can't comment on the fax feature. I am pleased with this printer's multi-functionality, print quality, sharp and clear prints, and impressive printing speed.

    The printers a 5, the installs a 3

    I own 3 other Brother printers, so I thought getting this one up and running would be easy. I thought wrong. I open the box and found the Brother MFCJ4335DW INKvestment Tank Inkjet Printer, 4 starter ink cartridges (black, cyan, yellow, and magenta) and a power cord. I made room for the printer and got to installing. I installed my Android phone first via Wi-Fi. No big deal. I downloaded the app from the Play Store and installed the drivers. It saw the printer and connected. I loaded a PDF and printed it. I thought It was one page, but it said 1/1 and was 56 pages. I hit the stop/cancel button on the printer, and it quit printing and ejected the partially printed page. So that works, now for the PC. I figure it would be a breeze since the phone worked so quickly. I should have known better.

    I used the provided link to download the full package software suite from the Brother website and installed it. Well, unzipped it and it started the installer. I got to where it asks if I want to install it via Wi-Fi or USB. I chose Wi-Fi and it couldn’t find the printer. I tried several times, then I tried a bunch more times with the USB cable attached when the software asked me to do so. Doing that allowed me to enter my Wi-Fi network information and then go right back to, can’t find the printer. After about an hour of this, I gave up. I came back in the morning with a fresh set of eyes and decided to search for the printer on the Brother website. I found it and downloaded the recommended full package as well as a tool called Wireless Setup Helper. I ran the helper and it didn’t see my Wi-Fi network. I tried it about 3 times and then it did. I left that open and ran the full package installer. Hey, what do you know, there’s my new printer without needing the USB cord attached? Just hit next it says. I do and then it finished. That took all of a few minutes and I was up and running. I fired up a PDF and sent it to the printer where it printed a color cover great.

    What I like about the printer. It prints great. I like the LCD screen but know that it’s not touch. You need to use the direction keys next to the display. Installing the ink was a no-brainer and Brother didn’t attach a large plastic throw-away piece like many other manufacturers that I’ve used do, kudos Brother! The paper tray holds 150 sheets which works well for me, YMMV. I also like that it works with Windows and Mac, listing the latest versions, 7–10; server 2008-2019 and 11 respectively.

    What I don’t like is the lack of a touchscreen. Using a keypad right next to the LCD is cumbersome. Where touchscreen allows you to read and go, using it as a guide allows for error and or trying to locate the button that corresponds with what the tiny screen is trying to instruct the user to do. Basically, it causes a loss of time and user frustration. Also, this unit doesn’t have a LAN port. It connects via USB 2.0 and Wi-Fi very well (once you get Wi-Fi installed), but no wired network connection.

    So, this all in one does scan, copy, print, and fax (do people still fax???). It prints fast and very well. Color looked great on plain generic white inkjet paper. Brother offers the automatic ink service through what they call [email protected] Brotherrefreshink.com I do like the fact that unlike some of its competitors, Brother’s program is a pay-as-you-go service. Signing up is free. The box states up to 1 year of ink in-box, but I’ve yet to figure out if that means free ink for a year and if so, how do I enable that? As of this review, I’m unable to register the printer with my other Brother products as it’s too new and hasn’t been added to the drop-down menu. I’ve emailed a representative, but I haven’t received a reply as to when it will be available.

    So, my opinion is: as usual I really like Brother printers. My history with them is that their ink is reasonable, and I don’t have to use 3rd party ink unless I choose to. I’d recommend this printer but know that you may run into some setup issues on a Windows PC, at least I did. But other than that, it works great. Oh, I forgot to mention, so here it is. The printer works with Google Drive, Evernote, Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, OneNote, and Brother Cloud apps. It also scans to Office.

    Setup Paper Jams

    Noticed a few reviews about paper jam errors during setup, this happened to me too and was about to return product. I finally discovered that the black wheels inside arrived at an angle. It seemed correct since they were tight however after some persistence to fix this error, they tell you to pull up the blue piece to check wheels for paper, while that is open, I managed to press the whole wheel mechanism down more into place so that the black wheels were no longer at a slant (mostly the right side was up too high.) They should be level along with the blue handle, which also arrived at a slant. Hope this helps the next person who encounters this problem on a new, out of the box printer.

    Network Reliability

    The printer connected to my network immediately. All devices sent print jobs with no issues. I also used the HP app to finish set up. Printing speed is decent. The email function works good. HP has also stepped up internal security for this printer for better performance. The touch screen is very nice, has good response to touch. There are audibles with different uses. The printer acknowledges when a sheet of paper is inserted into the auto feed and the touch screen responds. Color tone Is good, but not fantastic. I consider this to be more of a great office use printer. There is no SD card slot. It does have USB, Ethernet and Fax Ports. The paper feed tray works better than previous HP printers that I have owned. I would have preferred a more rounded edge designed housing, instead to me, It looks like a big square block and very heavy. Over all I think this is a very good printer, has been very reliable so far. HP offers 300 pages per month printing for the first few months at no charge when you sign up for the instant ink program where you choose a set price per month to receive ink as needed that will kick in when the initial period ends. I would recommend this especially if you need a work horse.

    Does it all

    SETUP:

    Setup was relatively simple. Once you install the ink cartridges it will notify you that you need to install the HP Smart App to finish up. You can use your cell phone, tablet, or PC to do this. I used my Smartphone and it connected to the printer via Bluetooth and then I was able to setup the wireless from there along with everything else. It walks you through all the steps to finish up including a few optional ones. By doing this you also get a year extended warranty (for two years total) and you have 7 days to sign up for 6 months free of HP+. Which is a neat program explained below. Overall, I had no issues with this part of the setup or getting things to work.

    I then tried to setup the printer to my PC and ran into some issues. Again, the application is required to get the printer to work which is a bit frustrating. The application had a hard time finding my printer and it wasn’t until I rebooted my printer that my PC was able to find it.

    BUILD QUALITY:

    This printer is large, and you’d expect it to be heavy, but it isn’t. Which can be considered a pro or a con. The entire thing is made from plastic (for the most part). But I didn’t notice much creaking or issues and in general it feels solid and well built. The trays feel alright and I would prefer them to be a bit more solid and smooth. The touch screen works better than my previous printer and is a bit more intuitive, but I still think they could improve the OS to be better as it is still clunky and doesn’t feel like a modern device. But that is me being picky.

    SPEED/PERFORMANCE:

    They report that it can print 20 pages per minute of normal documents and 10 pages per minute for colored documents. Scanning appeared to be quick. I don’t have a phone line, so I didn’t test the fax. The legibility of the text that is printed is an 8/10. Since it comes with multiple ink cartridges (blue, yellow, _, and black) the colors also look good. But I found that images had a bit of blur to them. This improved with higher quality paper. But if you are wanting amazingly crisp print jobs I’d keep looking. Overall, the performance is right where I’d expect for this price point. I didn’t find it too be too loud. There is also a quiet mode which takes longer to print but reduces overall noise.

    HP+:

    You have 7 days to redeem 6 months free upon completion of setup. The maximum number of pages you can get per month during the free trial period is 700 pages. It allows you to choose a specific number of pages you plan to print each month and then charges you a set amount per month for it. Prices seem reasonable. If you don’t use all your pages, it can roll over into the next month. They only send out ink (with free shipping) when the printer itself registers it is low, so you are never out of ink. They also report that this is cheaper than buying retail ink and that it comes with more ink, so you refill less often. You can decide if that is just marketing or not. This entire service can be a pro or a con depending on how you feel about signing up for yet another monthly subscription to something. But I’d imagine if you are someone who prints a lot that this would be greatly appreciated, and you’d likely save money.

    FEATURES:

    As indicative of the name it is an All-In-One Printer. Which means that you can print documents (1 sided automatically but 2-sided if chosen), scan documents, and fax documents (if you have a phone line connected). You can also print either from your PC or from your phone/tablet. I printed multiple things from my phone and PC without any issues.

    Great All-in-One for Home or Small Business

    HP has changed style from the standard black All-in-One (AIO) printers to a three-tone color scheme of white, dark grey and light grey. The new décor is very pleasing to the eye, fits nicely in our son’s room.

    The size is perfect for a home office or home print station (SOHO) compared to a large office AIO. The HP Officejet Pro 8025 is a very capable AIO as well, printing, copying, scanning and photo printing performed brilliantly for a package this size. The 8025 will perform well in a small office that has less demanding printing jobs. Have connected the printer to all our home devices and will use as a backup to our larger HP AIO office printer if needed.

    Photo Printing knocked my socks off, lovely rich colors and definition of a ceremony picture we had taking of our kid. Very nice.

    Panel

    - Flip up design for easy viewing, nice.

    - Bit small but adequate 2.7” Touchscreen.

    - Easy navigation – full explanation on downloadable user guide.

    - Tap on the “?” on the home screen will bring up a help screen which includes “How to Videos”, to cool.

    App

    - HP Smart assists you in the setup, scanning, printing, sharing, and managing the HP printer. Share documents and images simply through email, text messages, cloud and social media services, i.e. Google Drive, Facebook, iCloud, and Dropbox.

    - Android app is full featured for printer management.

    - Printing from Android, Chrome devices and iOS.

    - Google drive printing - kid loves this feature for printing school projects/papers from home or school.

    - Supports Print from Anywhere.

    Networking

    - Almost to simple to add to network. Windows 10 PC’s can scan the network and install printer and launch app if you want.

    - Connections: 1 Ethernet; 1 Wireless 802.11b/g/n; 1 RJ-11 Fax.

    - Was the simplest, easiest and quickest network setup of any printer I have used.

    -

    Full feature faxing (with contacts) scanning and copying capabilities.

    Paper capacity is impressive for small office printer:

    - Paper handling input, standard 225-sheet input tray, 35-sheet ADF

    - Paper handling output, standard 60-sheet output tray

    - Legal paper

    - Envelopes

    - Photo papers

    - Double sided duplexing

    Monthly duty cycle 20,000 pages

    4 print cartridges (1 each black, cyan, magenta, yellow)

    The HP 8025 is rated with the best for cost of operation, that is Big Plus in a smaller footprint printer!

    The HP Officejet Pro 8025 gives you the features and capabilities that are found in much larger AIO systems for less cost and fits nicely into any SOHO environment.

    Smaller & quieter yet full of features!

    I've been an HP printer fan for....well forever. My previous printer was the HP OfficeJet Pro 8610 - which has been a tried and true printer, scanner, copier and fax. However, with some updates to my desktop and laptop computers - I have had GREAT DIFFICULTY scanning to my PC from these older HP printers.

    Enter the new HP OfficeJet Pro 8025. First thing I notice is the new printer is about 40% smaller. That helps on my desk space. Next, it is quieter than my previous model. Third, it's a new and modern (two tone) design. Fourth - it scanned to my PC on the first attempt, and worked flawlessly! That alone is the WINNING ticket!

    So far - I'm very impressed and will be setting this as my default printer next week.

    A Clumsy Vending Machine For Ink Cartridges

    Everything about this printer is an embarrassment for HP.

    Physically, it is noticeably larger than HP printers with similar printing capabilities from years ago.

    The paper tray is quite small (especially for business printing) and HP has redesigned how you load papers into the tray - it is wholly unintuitive.

    Above the paper tray is an extending plastic platform designed to automatically reach out to catch your printed pages so that they don't shoot out onto your floor. Even when I printed the initial alignment page, this mechanism failed to engage.

    There are no ports on this model for memory cards to print from. Admittedly, this is not being marketed as one of their photo printers but I don't understand how documents from memory cards are not part of office printing necessities.

    During setup, this model immediately identified the included ink cartridges as official HP ink cartridges. A little bit of research alerted me that this printer will only accept genuine HP ink cartridges.

    It will not allow you to print in black ink alone if your color cartridges are empty or are not installed.

    Scanning, faxing, copying, and printing times are average. Nothing stellar. Document printing and color printing (including photo printing) are average. Nothing stellar.

    What does work? Their instant ink program - an ink subscription service (their "Ink Of The Month" club). Everything about their service is well defined and clear.

    But in an new printer era where they will need to compete with other printers with HUGE non-cartridge ink reservoirs, please take a look at the size of the cyan cartridge that fits this printer in the attached picture below.

    For a machine that is clearly being marketed as a source of ink cartridge sales, you can find other models with more or better features for WAY less money.

    There is no way that this can be an economical purchase for home or office.

    Great performance; bad instructions

    This is another great all in one from HP as far and performance. The only criticisms I have are that there was no clear direction to remove the tape over a very small symbol for wi-fi. Could not get the copier to work; the directions in the paperwork and online were useless and so I kept getting a general error message. Took me a long time to figure it out. Also, the model and serial number tag is SO SMALL, I couldn't read the information even with a magnifying glass. Took me several tries to get what I hope is the correction information. I have never had an HP product like that before, and I have had printers and computers!

    Plain looking w/a great back end experience

    Initial impressions:

    Visually, the HP Smart Tank 7001 All-in-One printer is one of the most plain and unassuming printers I have ever owned. Different shades of crème and grey an HP logo an interesting appliance does not make. The LCD is small without touch capability. There is a power button, two-sided ID card scanner button, color copier button, monochrome copy button, Wi-Fi toggle button, printer information button, down arrow resume button, and an X button that cancels whatever function the printer is executing. The paper tray accommodates 100 sheets of paper. The paper tray will also accommodate everything from 4x6 to 8.5x14. Finally, the high-capacity ink tanks have slightly transparent windows that allow you to check the ink levels.

    The 7001 was designed to be a fast, high volume office printer. Who cares what it looks like just as long as it does the job it was intended to do? And it does its job well.

    Setup:

    The reference guide will walk you through the initial printer setup.

    Setup took me about 30 minutes from start to finish minus the time it took me to unpack. Setup includes filling each ink tank using the included bottles of HP branded ink, priming the system, installing the black and color print heads, aligning the printer, loading HP Smart, and setting up Wi-Fi. There is no RJ-45 jack to hardwire the 7001 to your network. There is a USB A port on the back so you can directly connect the printer to your workstation.

    Printer calibration is the easiest calibration of any printer ever! I would kiss the engineering who put this together if I could. Typical calibration is printing out pages of color boxes, lines, and text that you is visually inspected and then reported back to a software driven calibration wizard. Some calibration prints are so small that the only way you can work with them is using a high-powered magnifying glass. HP, in its wisdom, chose to let the high-resolution build in scanner do that work for you. The printer printed a calibration page, I placed it on the scanner, pressed a button, and presto-chango the printer is magically calibrated! Thank the heavens and thank you HP. I cannot express enough gratitude for this feature.

    Part of setup is installing HP Smart. HP Smart includes your printer drivers, cloud services, and supply store.

    The 7001 is feature packed, integrates with a home or office network with little effort, and is integrated to HP Cloud platform through your HP Smart or HP Passport account. There is a lot going on here for such a simple and plain looking printer.

    Printing:

    Print quality is dependent on your content. Text prints, color or black and white, are crisp and easy to read. I did not notice any artifacts around the letters. Time to first print was just a few seconds. Not the fastest I have seen but still fast enough. Copies of text documents, bills, invoices, and marketing material with about 25% ink coverage are also very crisp and clean. Though, the color of the copy may not 100% match the original. Business documents with embedded graphics such as images, graphs, and charts were also reproduced with no issues. Excel spreadsheets also looked great. Essentially, if this printer is purely for school, general office work, or high-capacity printing then the 7001 should be on your short list.

    I ran into some issues copying high gloss images with high color saturation. In my case, I copied the cover of Eaglemoss’ Battlestar Galactica Shipyards book. For some reason, this gives all printers a hard time. I copied the book cover in both color and monochrome. I got a lot of vertical and horizontal scan lines. The color saturation was good, but color reproduction was inaccurate. Crimson turn to orange and blacks turned to shades of grey.

    As a second and third test I scanned the book covers for Battletech Total Warfare and a glossy from inside the book. Again, color saturation was good. But, unlike my last test, there were no printer lines or distortions in the copy. In the end, you may need to experiment with what works and what does not.

    Scanning:

    Scanning is clean and accurate. I had no issues capturing a perfect reproduction of my subject. The scan cover only opens and closes. The hinges will not expand to accommodate something tall like a book. The cover needs to remain in the vertical open position when scanning large objects. The scanner light also blinks every few seconds when the scanner cover is open. I do not know why.

    If you frequently scan multi-page documents, then you may want to upgrade to the 7301 that comes with the automatic document scanner. If your scanning needs are modest and typically limited to a single document, ID card, or other single use scenarios then you will find this scanner to be sharp, accurate, and adequate. There is also a feature in HP Smart that purports to remove scratches and other imperfections in your scanned document. I have not had the opportunity to try this feature yet so I cannot report on its quality.

    Finally, I cannot scan an image directly to a computer from the HP Smart Tank 7001 interface. I find this disappointing but it is not a deal breaker for my uses.

    Copy:

    Coping single pages is easy. Place the page on the scanner, press either the color or monochrome button, and then the 7001 will print out a copy. Press either button multiple times and the printer will copy the image as many times as you pressed the button. If you need to cancel the job then press the X button and the printer will spit out the unfinished page and cancel the job.

    Color accuracy is not 100%. This is most noticeable with deep reds such as crimson or deep blues like ultramarine blue. For example, crimson red is more orange than red when copying my test book cover. This could be an issue for those of you who require color accuracy. For example, your business is selling deep red roses and you need to print marketing materials that reflect photographs of those roses. This is not the printer that will give that level of accuracy. But, if you need to print a report with a pie chart that includes a red wedge then this printer is accurate enough to get the job done.

    HP Smart:

    HP Smart is what connects your mobile life to your HP Smart Tank 7001. I downloaded HP Smart to my Windows 11 laptop from the Microsoft Store. I also downloaded the app to my iPhone from the Apple App Store. The app gives me full control over the printer, the printer properties, the printer network configuration, the ability to scan a document directly to my phone, mobile faxing capabilities, direct printing capabilities from anywhere in the world using any device I have HP Smart installed on, secure printing, and a bunch of other stuff I have not yet dug into. This is a digital cloud solution for your mobile printing needs. This takes an otherwise unremarkable printer and super charges it with a backend software package with features normally reserved for an enterprise network.

    You can do remote printing, mobile faxing, mobile scanning, adjust print settings, add additional HP printers to your network, create shortcut and storage locations for files, images, and faxes, and invite other people to your HP Smart cloud. One very useful feature is Secure Print. HP Smart will hold your mobile print jobs until HP Smart confirms that you are next to one of the printers that are part of your HP Smart network before releasing the job for print. HP Smart accomplishes this by using the location services of your phone and the built-in location services of your printer to confirm you are near an HP Smart printer that is part of your HP Smart network of printers. Yes, I said network of printers. This means you can setup multiple HP Smart printers in multiple geographical locations and print to any one of them.

    HP Smart app also gives you direct access to printer settings such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, DNS, IPv4 and IPv6 settings, passwords, and other features including Quite Mode.

    Everything else:

    Filling the ink tank is billed as clean and spill proof. Except, you have to remove the cap of the HP ink bottles, remove the foil seal which exposes the entire bottle to your room, and then put the cap back on. If you accidently mishandle the bottle when removing the foil seal, or accidently bump it, then you have ink all over your room. In all honesty, the foil seal is unnecessary. HP should simply remove it all together. The bottle is already sealed and airtight. Just get rid of the part and the step in the filling process. Maybe HP will improve this in future bottle releases.

    Filling the tanks using the flip-top bottle top is easy, clean, and fast. The bottle opening has a rubber seal that does not open until you insert the spout from the tank into the bottle. Wait a minute and the tank is filled.

    The print heads are user installable and user replaceable. It is far cheaper to replace a print head than it is to replace a whole printer. This saves me money. This is a no brainer.

    HP needs to address the battery killing features of HP Smart mobile. The app will want to continue to update and perform services in the background when not in use. You can turn background service off which will save your battery. But, you will also miss out on the services this provides.

    Final Thoughts:

    This is a solid home office/small business printer. It is plain looking. The combination of the 7001 capabilities and the cloud power of HP Smart creates a compelling case to invest in this flexible, mobile All-in-One solution. The 7001 does not have all the convenience of other All-in-One solutions at this price point like automatic document scanning, smart card readers, or LCD touch screen controls. But it ticks enough boxes to put this on my short list of solutions.

    Great print quality and ready for 1000s of pages

    A pretty hefty printer/scanner/copier tri-combo that offers faxing through an HP service.

    This is something like my 3rd printer review and every time I get a new brand, I see the differences - both good & meh.

    TL;DR for my frequent readers and details below.

    Pros:

    Lots of printing

    Crisp prints

    Crisp scans (via HP Smart App)

    Multi OS use (iOS, Android, Windows, Mac)

    Cons:

    Small screen isn’t back-lit

    Long and cumbersome setup

    Mandatory ‘power off’ after 2 hours - unable to be configured otherwise (firmware fix soon maybe?)

    Meh:

    Have to power it on before every use

    Ink bottle refills could be a problem for those with dexterity issues

    Special Handling Instructions

    Setup:

    Unwrapping all the components that were protected during shipment is common for new printers. One of the interesting parts for this printer were the ink tubes that I had to pour ink into ‘tubs’ of sorts, instead of using cartridges. Then, I saw - there were cartridges too! So, we had 4 bottles (see pic) and 2 cartridges (see pic).

    Using the HP Smart App on an Android phone, it walked me through the setup, each step of the way because I didn’t want to ‘wing it’ and screw something up. After around 30 minutes of setup, I was ready to start printing.

    First on the list to print from, was iOS. I loaded the App on a 2019 iPad and got to playing. Easy printing from within Gmail and Chrome. Whether it was single or double sided, the ink dried quickly and no messes encountered. Next, a Chromebook - no problem there & Google docs print-outs for homeschooling went without a hitch. Adding the printer in Windows10 auto (with permission) installed the HP App so I could manage the functionality without a web browser.

    One thing I got used to with another brand was auto-wake-on-print. It powered off after 2 hours but would turn itself on when it got a print job; that’s not the case here.

    After installing it, I can only imagine that a firmware update happened that locked the printer up, because it had to have the plug pulled as no button pushes would wake it up; thankfully in the week I’ve been using it, it only happened once. A down-side to it, was I was working in dim light and the screen doesn't have a back-light, so I had to get a flash light to see the status on the screen that seemed to be frozen.

    Scans were great, nice and crisp. I even scanned a box of my latest favorite earbuds (that you can get here at Best Buy) which required the lid to be open; uncropped and attached to the review.

    Do I recommend it? Sure! Do the Cons/Meh really detract from the review? Nah, it’s more to let you know my feelings - it doesn’t take from functionality or quality.

    Easy to use and very quick

    I'll just start with saying this printer is very fast. I was impressed at just how quickly it prints. Setup was very easy. I started with setup on my desktop, and the app walks you through the process with illustrations to make the process even easier. I set up my phone shortly thereafter, which went very quickly, since I had already done the first-time setup on the computer. Adding the ink and printheads was also a simple process. I was somewhat worried that I'd be spilling ink everywhere trying to fill the printer, but HP has these very nice ink bottles that you put into the fill area and it presses the bottle open and drains it into the printer. It is very easy, and doesn't spill a drop. I also appreciate the added precision of the alignment process that checks it's work after you print the alignment page, by having you put it on the scanner so the printer can double-check itself. Pretty smart stuff. You can also set the printer to receive print requests from anywhere online, as long as you have the HP app. This is actually great for us, since we have 3 different WiFi networks that we use, and we don't have to make sure that we're on the same one as the printer to be able to print things. There's also a unique feature that allows you to set stuff to be picked up only when your close with your bluetooth device (like your phone) that verifies it's you. Definitely a cool idea, especially if you're printing anything with sensitive information.

    Overall, this printer is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a smart, fast and easy to use printer. It also seems like it will be much more economical using the ink refills rather than cartridges as well.

    HP great when it works.

    I have been a long time HP fan and user.

    Setup was easy after I had a snafu at the beginning. Will explain later.

    Use of Android app took about 15 mins to setup.

    Mobile printing was a snap. Will gripe about their mobile printing later as well.

    Speed of printing was good.

    I spit out 2 or 3 - 8x10 photos for my kid for fun and it barely.made a dent in the ink.

    So here are my 2 gripes.

    1) Printer came with carriage head jammed. It was saying E4 code which was paper jam with no paper. I called tech service and within 20 seconds and figuring out what happened and I jammed the head. I told HP tech service they should put better shipping controls on the carriage so if shipper drops i, it won't get stuck.

    2) HP mobile printing is hot and cold.... It works then it does not work on Android. I suspect that it is because not Android app having issues with updates and security patches but it has been frustrating on that end.

    When it works it's great, when it does not it is not good.

    So if HP can just get this to be fixed permanently I would give it 5 stars. But because I have had this problem more than once in recent previous products. I can't.

    No More Ink Cartridges

    I have used HP printers exclusively for over 20 years. I’ve used other brands at work but always felt that the competition was somehow lacking in comparison. Most recently I’ve been using an HP laser printer. Great product for printing text but it’s not a color printer. Needing color printing capabilities I was excited to try the HP Smart Tank 7001 Wireless All-In-One Inkjet Printer.

    Unboxing was a breeze. Within you’ll find the printer, power cord, manuals, a black print head, a tricolor print head, and 4 bottles of ink including a black ink, a yellow ink, a cyan ink, and a magenta ink. The black ink bottle is 135ml while the color inks are 70ml. With all this ink, you could actually hear the ink bottles sloshing around in the box. Enough ink to print up to 6,000 black and 8,000 color pages. With average printing it’s enough to last two years. Now that’s impressive! The printer itself is a white and slate color with a square minimal modern design. I like it. I was somewhat disappointed by the quality of the scanner lid which seems surprisingly thin and unsubstantial.

    After removing the packing material I was eager to setup the Smart Tank 7001. The manual simply directs you to download their app at the provided link. You can also scan a QR code to quickly navigate to the software. After app installation you are prompted to connect the printer to WiFi. With the press of a button on the printer and the entry of your WiFi password the printer was connected. What a breeze. The HP Smart Tank 7001 supports dual band wifi 2.5ghz and 5ghz. The app next prompts to setup an account. If you’re an HP user already you can just login. Afterwards the app directs you to fill the ink reservoirs. One would want to be careful during this process so as not to accidentally spill the ink. The ink bottles are all nicely sealed in shrink wrapped plastic. You need to remove an inner seal under the bottle’s cap then you’re ready to fill. To fill the reservoirs you simply insert the ink bottle’s spill proof cap onto the reservoir fill cap and gravity does the rest. You repeat with each color until each bottle is empty. The app next walks you through install the black and tricolor print heads. At this point you’re directed to load paper. The paper tray holds up to 250 pages while the output tray holds up to 100 pages. The printer then printed a print alignment page which you then scan to complete the alignment process. After alignment, the setup was complete and you’re ready to print. At this point you’re prompted to send the software link to other devices in your home. I easily installed it to two desktop computers and had them print ready in a matter of minutes. I compliment HP on a great setup experience in simple step by step app. No need to be intimidated.

    Specification wise the HP Smart Tank 7001 is fantastic and supports print, scan, and copy with borderless printing capabilities. Print speed is 15 ppm for black and 9 ppm for color printing. The HP Smart Tank 7001 also supports duplex printing. Up to 1200 x 1200 rendered dpi Black printing and up to 4800 x 1200 optimized dpi color when printing from a computer and 1200 input dpi. Scan resolution is up to 1200 x 1200 dpi and copy resolution is up to 600 dpi. While you can setup the Smart Tank using USB 2.0, I particularly love the wireless printing capabilities of this printer which include Apple AirPrint; Mopria certified; HP Print Service Plugin (Android printing); HP Smart app; Wi-Fi Direct Printing. With these you can easily print from your phone or tablet while in the yard, while lounging on your sofa, or from across the country. When printing documents for work the black print quality was fantastic. Color photos on photo paper came out looking very high quality. Scanning was fast and results were great. Copies were very nice.

    The HP Smart Tank 7001 is a solid performing, full featured, and economical all in one printer. No more cartridges! Highly recommended.

    Ends Frustration with Cartridge Based Printers

    About 3 years ago, I just about gave up on in jet printers. They were expensive to operate because of their never end
