    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.

    Epson Ecotank 2850

    The Epson ecotank 2850 is a good choice if your looking for a not so expensive printer with the advantage of the ecotank feature. It is very compact, has wireless connection capability. It has a step by step installation trough an app or you can do it directly on the printer. There are better versions of the Epson’s Ecotank ( more expensive = more features), but if you are looking for a budget friendly version, who does a good job, this is a good option. The only thing I wish in this model would be the compartment to store the paper to be used.

    Happy owner of the Epson EcoTank ET2850

    I have used my new Epson -EcoTank ET-2850 for about 3 weeks now. So far I'm very happy with it. I like the idea of having the ink instead of buying the expense printer cartridges. This is my first Epson product and I purchased it because I liked the idea of the the Eco-Tank and being able to watch the ink levels and know when it has to be filled. So far I have printed & copies and this printer has met my needs.

    Good basic printer

    Very good printer! Easy to set up though the scan feature needs a download from your computer. I've used this printer a fair amount - maybe 50 pages of documents in the month I've had it and barely used any ink. Quality of printed documents is good. Haven't tried pictures yet. The one drawback is the tiny screen. What's the point of having it since you need a magnifying glass?

    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.

    Other than at 83 and female and having to carry the 35 pounds up 2 flights of stairs, i like the printer very much. I haven't had it long enough to experiment with it, but for have had good luck with colored photos. I do have to admit that it took a couple of tries get the print options set up. Reading the manual probably would have helped.

    Great printer for the price

    I replaced a Canon I-9900 with this. This printer doesn't have a red and green cartridge like the old model. Now they have added 2 grey cartridges. I feel that this produces a better quality black and white photo. I also don't see a big difference in colors in losing the red and green cartridges. I did notice a huge difference in output quality with the paper samples that they gave with the pinter versus other quality paper brands. Be ready to buy the more expensive Canon paper after you see the difference it makes.

    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

    Workhorse printer, scanner, copier and fax

    Here is a sample of its pedigree from Epson:

    • Unique PrecisionCore Heat-Free Technology™ and Claria® ET pigment black ink produce extremely sharp text – plus impressive color photos and graphics – on virtually any paper type

    • Dramatic Savings on Replacement Ink — Save up to 90% with replacement ink bottles vs. ink cartridges – that’s enough to print up to 7,500 pages black/6,000 color, equivalent to about 90 individual ink cartridges

    • Zero Cartridge Waste — By using an EcoTank printer, you can help reduce the amount of cartridge waste ending up in landfills

    • Print speeds up to 15.5 ppm black and 8.5 ppm for color

    • 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Outstanding Printer

    I would give this 20 stars if I could.

    This is by far the EASIEST printer I have had in the last 5 years to install. 1. Removed it from the box, plugged it in, downloaded driver ( I don't have a CD tray on my laptop) put the paper in, print.

    It's on my desk and when not using it takes up 7 1/4 " w by 13" long. The best part, it is a Laser printer. This was the most important decision because Insta Ink seems to be a big rip-off.

    An all-around excellent compact printer

    I'm very pleased with the printer. It's compact and fits nicely onto a small cubby shelf on my desk. Very quiet operation, excellent print quality. Set up was easy but I'm NOT using Wifi and the only little annoyance is that the blue Wifi light blinks as in "searching" even though I did NOT set it up for Wifi. My neighbor's Wifi showed up as an option during set-up but was obviously ignored so I'm not sure why it searches for the connection (maybe it's just built-in to do that). But all in all this was an excellent buy and I recommend it to anyone looking for a compact and quiet monochrome laser printer.

    HPLJ Pro M15w - great value - good performance

    The HP LaserJet Pro M15w laser printer so far has represented not only a great value due to its availability at under $100 price, but also the cartridge drum refill kits are available for 2 for $25!! . The printer was a snap to setup on Win10, my iPhone and Chromebook w/o Google cloud, which is being discontinued.-It also has good performance with a pretty fast first page printing speed. I also like its ease of use, small footprint, and quiet operation. No complaints so far, only similes.

    Nothing fancy. A no frills printer

    My son's brother printer died while at college. It was an old hand me down but a great small printer. During COVID, printers were in demand and no affordable printer was available but this one. It's just ok, the print cartridges are more money than the brother cartridge. He likes the printer and says it works fine but he did not load the app onto his phone. He does not print wirelessly either, probably just too lazy to figure it out. He plugs the printer cable into his lap top to print and it works for him. He did say the printer does not hold a lot of paper at one time, about an inch of unprinted paper. You pull down the front panel to load the paper. A pull out tab guides the paper in place. There is no true paper tray. To save space you can put the front panel back upright but then you can not print. The printed pages print out of the top and you extend a pull out tab to catch those printed pages. One time the printed page fell off the top of the printer and landed back into the area of feeder paper. The design of the printer is not the best but when not in use you can take the paper off and fold up the tray to make it smaller. Its fine for small use at college.

    Small, clean, functional

    Great size, minimal look, acceptable print quality for my needs (shipping labels, monochrome documents).

    AirPrint works great once i got the printer to connect to the WiFi.

    Connecting was frustrating. Note- scan the barcode on the single page setup leaflet, NOT the manual. Doing it incorrectly will download the wrong app, a useless troubleshooting app requiring creating account etc.

    Well worth the money. But hey HP. We’re not in the 90’s. Ditch the CD and provide clear directions for WiFi. Maybe use words instead of just pictures. This isn’t an IKEA bookshelf. Thanks.

    Excellent for the price - works great

    I had to buy a printer since I am now working at home - the inkjet I had just could not handle what I needed to do. I use the WIFI function and it works great. It is so compact I was able to put it on a book case shelf. Definitely compare it to others and in the end if you can't decide get this one - you will not be sorry.

    Space saver

    Small foot print; wife has it on her studio and it sits on small coffee table. Initial toner doesnt last much but it helps while you get used to it.

    If using fully wired configuration; its a breeze. Yet wifi connection and HP + Windows 10 bugs still need to be cleaned up it took a little troubleshooting to make it work.

    Compact, Nice Small Footprint

    I hate printers, they’re bulky, ugly and the ink cartridges are expensive plus I rarely really use one. However, a printer to me is much like an umbrella, never think about them but when you need one there’s never one around. So I decided I better get a printer but it would have to be small, too bad they weren’t invisible, but hey. I was lucky and happened on this new Epson compact printer. I love the small footprint as I can just store it away in a drawer and that’s the end of it but when I need one it’s there. Pretty much plug and play, easy to use and set up. I’ll never go back to a regular size printer again. Highly recommend to those like me who don’t like bulky printers and only find the need to use them once in awhile. This little cute compact printer is the perfect answer.

    Great quality portable

    This Epson WF-110 is a cool little portable printer that allows the user to take a very capable printer on the go. It's small, lightweight and prints very well. It's not a multi-function, so there are no extras like scanning, fax or copy. It's a dedicated printer and it excels at the task.

    Setup of the printer is easy enough. Removing the packing tape was probably the most time consuming step of the initial setup. The printer ships with the power cord, two ink cartridges and a USB cable. The black and color 215 ink cartridges pop right inside a small cover on the front. I checked the street price of replacement cartridges and they're pretty reasonable. It takes a few minutes for the ink to charge after initial installation. The top lid folds up to become a paper guide and acts as a protective cover when closed. A 24-watt AC adapter is included. The battery takes about two-hours to fully charge. An amber LED indicator on the front shows the battery charging status and turns off once the battery is fully charged. If battery power isn't needed, the printer can also be used on AC power with the charger like a traditional printer. The printer ships with an Epson software disk containing drivers, a user's manual and not much else. I don't have an optical drive on the laptop used with this printer anyhow, so I just used the native driver provided by Windows 10 when I installed the new device. It works perfectly fine.

    The printer works via WiFi, WiFi direct or direct connect using the included USB cable. I prefer WiFi when using it at home and WiFi Direct when on the go. The WiFi connection has been very solid, even if the printer has been off for a while. I love the fact that the printer is 5G compatible. Although 5G isn't necessary to use the printer more efficiently, it does eliminate potential WiFi connection issues in mixed mode or 5G only networks. The USB cable can also be used to charge the battery but is much slower than charging with the power cord.

    The LCD screen is tiny and not touch enabled. Menus are navigated using physical buttons located to the right of the screen. It's not the worst printer screen I've ever used but can quickly become pretty tedious if you need to drill down deep into the menu system or enter a complex WiFi password.

    Printing is fast, quiet and the print quality is very good. I use Epson's 24 lb bright white paper and the results are excellent. While it may not be razor-sharp and rival the output from a good color laser or even Epson's high-end inkjet models, I'd rate it on par with Epson's mid-range printers. I included some sample printing photos to give an idea. One photo shows a line of text that I printed from this Epson and a different printer made by another manufacturer. The other printer is a full-sized multi-function and sells for over $300. The text printed from this Epson is the bottom line. The quality is more than sufficient for personal and business printing alike.

    The Epson WF-110 is a very capable little printer that can save time and money if printing is needed on the go. It's portable and can be carried around during the day but it's not going to slip inside a typical briefcase or bag. It's just too big and chunky for that. I enclosed photos of the printer next to a 14" laptop. It should give an idea of the size. Not only is the printer a little large for smaller bags and briefcases but the AC adapter is the same style and size as those used by laptops. The adapter is not necessarily a must-have while carrying the printer but some may choose to carry it rather than relying on slower USB charging. It's a portable printer indeed but don't expect it to be as small and easy to carry as a portable scanner.

    Great tiny power!

    I have been using this tiny powerful printer and I am beyond happy. It is small compact bringing the power cord, two ink cartridges (color and black) and a maintenance tool. It is very easy to ensemble and connect. It connects to Wifi and is very lightweight. It fits anywhere and you can either print from your computer or phone.

    I have printed some work for me and my high school kids and the quality is great. You think that because it is small with not many features included would be poor but you are wrong. The quality exceeds my expectations. The colors are exceptional and bright. You can't ask for more from this tiny powerful printer. I have tried lots of big regular printers but this one is far beyond better than all those ones out there and you can carry it anywhere. I recommend it to anyone who needs power like this.

    Does a bear print in the woods?

    If you are the type of person that is always on the move and ever had a moment that you wish you had a full blown printer handy, this Epson WF-110 fits right in. Coming in at a bit over a foot wide, half that deep and a couple inches tall while folded this printer can easily fit in a backpack. With it being battery operated and wireless you could literally pull this out in the middle of the woods and start printing from a laptop, phone or other mobile device. You can print full color or gray scale documents and photos at a fairly decent rate. While it’s not as fast as a standard office printer, it does fairly well, even on battery.

    The down side to the small size is the small ink capacity and limited paper feed. The feed tray is limited to about 20 pages of standard paper and about 5 photo pages, otherwise it will jam when attempting to pull a page in. I had a few jams that needed manual nudging with just three 4x6 photo cards, was easier just doing one at a time. While printing a large document can be a bit tedious having to restock it each time. The cartridges claim 200 color and 250 black, but the meter is already reporting half black after only 60 grayscale pages. You also have an additional maintenance cartridge, one extra included, that is snapped into the bottom for the ink residue. Very little detail is provided about it, but the display and the Epson printer software will alert you when it needs replacing.

    Battery life will get you at most 100 grayscale pages with Wi-Fi direct connection. However, you can charge with the AC adapter, USB while not printing or get the additional external battery that attaches to the back for extended use.

    Quality of the prints look just as good as my larger office printer with only minor differences when compared side by side up close. Border-less photos looked a little flat, but the details were still presentable.

    This is by no means a full blown replacement for your office printer, but to have near the same quality while carrying it around without the need of electricity is hard to beat.

    Great compact printer

    This printer is a great item especially for “on the go” printing. Set up was super simple right out of the box, just plug it in and install the two enclosed ink cartridges and set up Wifi directly on the printer. I was slightly worried about the print quality because it’s a small printer but I printed a photo of my sister and it came out fantastic. I love that it comes with a micro usb connector to charge the printer (it takes up less space if you’re traveling). The power off timer is a great feature and you can adjust the amount of time it shuts off.

    Pros: small footprint, print quality, ease of use

    Cons: not really a con but you have to turn the printer back on if you want to print. My phone recognizes the printer but won’t connect unless it’s turned on. Not sure about the number of pages the cartridges will print. The cartridges are about 38.00 for the two, so not sure about the cost per sheet yet.

    Overall I am extremely pleased with the

    WorkForce WF-110.

    EPSON WF110

    I am impressed the ease to set up this compact Epson printer. It took me just a few minutes by following the Quick Guide sent along in the box. It was easy to read, follow and very thorough. Anyone with any level of technical skills can do this ! I set it up in just a few minutes on my laptop.

    Epson WF-110 is the most technologically advanced home printer on the market. You use your home wi-fi, you do not have to use a cord anymore and it prints just as great. The printer now can run on battery so you can make it transportable or plug it into an outlet. I love that so I can take it to the library with me. The printer weighs just a few pounds and you can stick it into your backpack.

    Epson has a support hotline and even videos to help you with any questions if you have issues with your printer. This product is top of the line.

    Great For Road Warriors!

    I'm on the road and in my car quite a bit. Nothing more frustrating than trying to find an office supply store to print a sales quote or fact sheet!

    Enter the WorkForce WF-110.

    First impressions: Man this thing is tiny! The design is really cool and actually fits in my glovebox or under my passenger seat. It's about half as tall as a standard tissue box and a little wider. Build quality looks pretty good too. I don't plan on transporting it often outside my car, but it looks like it would hold up well. The fact that it is chargeable by microUSB is brilliant! I was able to plug it into my car USB port and print away!

    Print Quality/Speed: I figured that the print quality would meet my basic needs - and I was right. Print was crisp and no smearing/smudging. I didn't print any photos but based on what I read about on last years model I assume they'll look good too. What really impressed me was the speed. When plugged into power the speed was super fast! On the battery it slowed down a bit but certainly fast enough to get the job done!

    AirPrint: I'm an Apple guy and once I had the printer set-up I was easily able to print copies of a contract that I had signed on my iPad. Imagine being able to use your Apple pencil to capture signature digitally but then be able to print off a paper copy with signature in your car. I pulled open the PDF, tapped the share button, and the printer came up quickly from my choices and started printing like magic. Way cool!

    Unit Cost: I can't stress this enough - this is a niche printer. Do you need a portable printing solution? Do you have a small home office where work space is at a premium? If yes, this printer may be for you. At $299 retail this is more expensive than your typical home printers that work equally well at printing. If this printer is providing you a solution to a portability need or a space issue - then it's highly worth considering!

    Print Cost: Same as above - this printer uses a specialized cartridge that costs about $22 for black and $17 for the combined color cartridge. Since all colors are in one cartridge if one of the three goes quickly you may be wasting ink. I print mostly in black and white and the $22 cartridge yields about 250 pages. At .08-.09 cents a sheet this isn't for your bulk print jobs. If you're printing a manual - might as well print it at an office supply store. You're paying for convenience with this little guy. Drive to a small town and instead of having to track down someplace to print a small project - I've got everything I need.

    The perfect compact printer

    I have owned several Epson printers and one thing I can say they are reliable, I trust this will not be left behind. There is one thing about this printer it is compact. This printer is relatively small for its capability, and is not heavy. Setting up just took a few minutes,follow the instructions on the small screen install the two small ink cartridges, and connect it to the Wifi. Under the lid which is also the paper holder, you will find the control panel plus a 1.4in color screen. Fully charging the internal battery took a little more than 2 hrs. This printer can be connected via Wifi and Wifi-Direct and USB, I used Windows 10 and Android phone it automatically recognized the printer over Wifi.

    The printer is pretty quiet, it prints at a decent speed and the print quality is pretty good. It has good built quality, and the texture on the surface gives a nice grip when holding it. On the front it has two lights indicator one for the power and the other one for charging. On the right side is has lock slot if you wish to install a locking cable, and on the left you have A/C slot and micro USB slot. On the back it has a cover which can be removed to install and extended battery, and the bottom it has a compartment for a maintenance cartridge. If you don’t have a CD drive you can go to the manufacture website and download the drivers for Windows 10 or Mac, I recommend it because you can monitor the ink levels with the software.

    The manufacturer did not mention the battery life but I was able to print around 5 pages completely full (color/black/mix) until the first bar dropped, and after 2 days standby it still had 1 bar left. In the box it included the printer, 2 ink cartridges 1 color, 1 black, additional maintenance cartridge, USB cable, A/C adapter, Manuals and a CD. If you travel and take your work on the go this portable printer is your solution, no more going to hotel lobby to print, and with its small form factor this printer will fit nicely in a laptop bag. Overall this is one of the most compact color printer I have seen with minimal weight, flexibility and connectivity this definitely will get the job done on the go.

    Sometimes you get more than you expect

    In short this little printer exceeded my expectations for printing text and photos. I expected nice sharp text since it uses black pigment ink for that but the photos came out much better than I expected. The TR-150 uses 5 colors. Pigment black, and the rest are dye inks. Cyan, Yellow, Magenta and Black. They call it a Hybrid system. I have a Canon Pixma Pro-10 (all pigment inks) and a Pro-100 (all dye inks) that I put it up against on photos and the TR-150 did amazingly well compared to them. It also did well compared to a Canon Maxify 2320 and Epson ET-3700. Setup was easy with no problems and the apps perform well too. Read on for more details and see photos to compare text and photo output from the above printers.

    The printer comes with a power supply brick, ink tanks, printhead and a high quality USB cable. No kidding on the cable. You can feel it. The printer’s build quality feels and looks good too. Better than the low end stuff they make which still isn’t too bad. It feels better than my Epson ET-3700 which costs more. I would say it’s on par with my Pro-10 and 100 printers. There’s also a battery option for the TR-150. That will set you back $100. For those that ask “Why didn’t they include it?” I would say to keep the price down as not everyone who buys this printer would need it. However, it’s not cheap. Canon quotes up to 330 pages with a full charge.

    Do keep in mind that it’s a good idea to print something every week. Even a nozzle check is enough. Do this with any inkjet printer to help prevent nozzle clogs which waste ink when the printer has to clear a clogged nozzle.

    Setup was easy, which is the norm for Canon products in my 16+ year experience with them, Camera and Printer wise. Just answer the questions as the drivers and software installs and you should be good to go. You can use the printer with USB, WiFi Direct or through a router and network.

    Apps and Usability:

    The Canon Print app works well from phones and tablets. Canon also provides several programs (apps) for PCs for printing up photos and calendars among other art themed things.

    The Mopria print app demands that you turn location on (GPS) on your mobile device for it to work. This could be a privacy issue for some. I don’t see any advantage using Mopria over Canon’s app other than Mopria will work with other brands also.

    Five templates can be loaded into it for use without an external device.

    You can charge the optional battery via USB.

    Use the Mono OLED display to navigate settings and options without having to use a PC or other device. It also shows ink levels at a glance.

    It also prints photos when directly connected to a Pictbridge enabled camera

    Text, Graphics and Speed:

    Text quality has 3 settings. Draft, Standard and Fine. Draft is readable and fastest to print. Standard is much better and likely all you will ever need to use. Fine is excellent in my opinion. Everything is very sharp and colors are saturated and well defined. Even on plain paper. Use coated paper and it will really pop!

    Compared to a Canon Maxify printer it’s pretty much the same. Maxify printers use all Pigment inks. PG1200 tanks. PG meaning pigment ink in Canon’s eco system. CL is dye ink. Note that the Maxify line doesn’t do a very good job with photos because it’s not meant to. They are made for printing text and graphics fast. Compared to the Epson ET-3700 the TR-150’s draft text print looks as good as the ET- 3700’s standard text print. Part of the reason for that is the TR-150’s use of pigment black ink. The ET-3700 uses dye inks and dye blacks are not as black as pigment. Speed wise the ET-3700 is faster with 15ppm vs 9ppm for black and 8ppm vs 5.5m for color.

    Both the ET-3700 and Maxify also have flatbed scanners and print on both sides of the paper (auto duplexing). The TR-150 lacks these features. The ET-3700 is much much cheaper to operate as you refill tanks with bottles of ink versus swapping ink tanks. But you can’t put either in a briefcase or backpack.

    PC Magazine’s TR-150 review estimates the cost per page to be about 7.5 cents per black and white page and 15.1 cents per color page. Not as cheap to operate as a desktop printer.

    I didn’t compare text and graphics output to my photo printers. I knew the output would be excellent but very slow to print due to the nature of the photo printer’s design and operation.

    Conclusion for this category is Excellent text and graphics but a bit slow and more expensive to print with but that is to be expected considering its size and what its purpose is.

    Photo Quality:

    The TR-150 really shines at photos better than I expected. I would even say it holds its own up to a point against my Canon Pixma Pro series in a side by side comparison unless you are really looking close at the details. See photos. Color accuracy is a bit of a different story and that is to be expected considering the TR-150 only has 5 colors of ink and 2 of those are black. The Pro-10 uses 9 pigment inks with “chroma optimizer” coating and the Pro-100 uses 8 dye inks. The TR-150’s output is closer to the Pro-100’s output when printing landscapes, flowers and such. The Pro-10 excels at skin tones and has the overall best color accuracy. If you look at the photos I have posted you will see what I mean. I also printed the same photos with the Epson ET-3700. They don’t look too bad until you put them beside the Canon prints.

    Technical notes: I used the same Canon glossy photo paper for all the test prints with the same settings in Photoshop CC and let the printers handle the color profile and used Photoshops’s relative colorimetric setting to keep the playing field level with default settings. You can tweak settings and color profiles for better results. All photos were taken by me, using a Canon EOS R and L series lenses including photos of all printer's output.

    Conclusion on photo quality is the TR-150 does an outstanding job for photos but it’s not going to replace a dedicated photo printer nor is it meant to. Those types of printers have more colors of ink and are generally cheaper to operate. But for general use and basic photo printing I think it’s better than average considering it doesn’t use “photo cyan” and “photo magenta” inks. For portable / mobile printing of photos that are larger than the little mini photo printers can do, the TR-150 is a good option to consider.

    Overall Conclusion: This portable printer scores high in my book for print and photo quality. It’s also easy to use with a PC or mobile device. It’s small and compact and build quality is top notch.

    Compact Wireless Printer on the GO

    Canon TR150 form factor is designed for printing on the go featuring compact, wireless and lightweight inkjet printing. This printer is not intended for heavy printing as the cost to print is little expensive compared to regular printing.

    What is in the box : Canon TR150, power brick with cable, usb cable, ink cartridges, manual, installation cd.

    Its very small measuring 12.7 in x 7.3in x 2.6in and weighs around 4.5 pounds. This is very easy to carry in a laptop bag if required during travel or places where you will need to print on the go. Unlike Epson WF110, this printer does not come with the battery and needs to be purchased separately if you want to print on the go and would cost around $100 extra on top of $199 which puts this printer at the expensive end. Without the optional battery, this printer is not truly portable and you would need a power source if you want to print which sets this printer more expensive.

    Setup is easy if you follow the instructional YouTube videos that canon has posted for this product. Suggest to watch for quick setup. It does have a small 1.44 inch OLED control panel where you will find a cool feature to create up to five template like flyers, application forms, consent forms that you can access from the control panel by scrolling down the list and printing it directly without the need of a laptop.

    Printer does come with a USB port, locking slot and power port. Printer does support wireless Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n/a and supports direct printing from other canon products. It does support Apple Airprint and detects from iOS devices for quick printing.

    Compared to regular inkjet printer, this printer is little slower considering the size. Its advertised to print 9ppm for monochrome and 5.5ppm for color but it takes little longer when printed wireless. Also depends on the content of printing. It took longer for photos to print compared to the regular text or word documents.

    Recurring ink costs are expensive if you would use this for regular printing and is not economical and this printer does not support duplex printing.

    Overall, good mobile printer if you are in the market for compact travel printer that would print good quality pages but the lack of battery doesn’t justify the true mobility.

    Best Printer for on the Go!!!

    If you are looking for a wireless, compact, lightweight and a portable printer with great print resolution (Up to 4800 x 1220 dpi), then the Canon Pixma TR150 is the printer for you. The Canon TR150 roughly in at about 4.5lb and measures Closed: 12.7" (L) x 7.3" (W) x 2.6" (H) and Paper Installed: 12.7" (L) x 12.1" (W) x 9.7" (H). This is black and a color printer. Now let’s get into some specifics about this product.

    -Setup

    So, the setup process for this printer is pretty simple if you watch the step by step setup video that is accessible via the QR code on the printer. The printer comes with power cable, USB to USB-C cable, a black and color ink cartridge and the ink cartridge cradle that needs to be installed prior to installing the ink cartridges. Follow the instructions provided on the printer screen and your mobile device and you should have it setup and ready to go in 10 minutes.

    -Features

    Now the best features of this printer are its wireless connectivity to any mobile device (PC, MAC, Laptop Android or IOS) and portability. You can also purchase a separate battery for the printer in case if you are in a position where you don’t have access to power. The printer has a print speed of 9 PPM on black and 5 PPM on color. The printer has multiple print modes, such as Cloud Print, WIFI-Direct, or via the provided USB to USB-C cable. The printer is also able to accept different types and sizes of paper. I tested out the printer with regular 8x11 and glossy 8x11 photo paper and it performed great. The rear printer tray holds up to 50 sheets of regular paper. The printer also features a small mono display in which you are able to change settings.

    -Print Resolution

    This printer is able to print up to 4800 x 1200 DPI, and able to take care of any of your printing needs from regular black and white to printing photos. I tested out the printer with regular black and white print and a color photo print and it performed well during both tests.

    -My Experience

    My experience with this unit was amazing, from the setup process to printing out stuff for business and personal life. I have been able to take the printer with me on the go and print without any issues so I would definitely recommend that is in the market for a portable color printer to check out the Canon TR150.

    Mobile School/Business Necessity!

    Portability!! that’s what this whole unit is all about! I was able to place the printer and my laptop in my backpack with no problems and carry around a whole office in a backpack! That is awesome! I really love how the paper ramp folds into the paper output lip and has a little magnet that keeps it nice and secure. That really lends to a sleek and portable platform that stays closed and really enhances the portability of the unit. It came with the power chord but to really benefit from the portability I would say you really need to have the battery unit for it. Frankly, I was a little disappointed that it did not come with it as it is key to the true wireless portability that really makes this unit pop! Even so, I love this printer.

    The battery kit is roughly a hundred bucks and some may not need it but if you were a sales rep and you worked out of your car or service tech or freelance business person that needed receipts and invoices that you could not email just plan on buying the battery pack as well. I also think college students would really benefit from this printer because it can fit in a dorm drawer or in a backpack for a study group ect. Again super compact and mobile!

    The quality of print is about what I would expect from a compact little printer. It is not a photo printer in the strictest sense but I printed a mixed media template with color text, grey shading, black text and a photo and it looked great! (See picture) I would be more than comfortable handing the printed material to a client, professor or colleague. The black text was sharp the color scales were true to the template I used and the photo looked good. The print speed is pretty impressive for its size as well. You could also use it with your phone and take a snap of a document and print it out…boom you have a scanner, copier and printer by using your phone and this little printer on the go that fits perfectly in a backpack!! Canon made set up a breeze as well. Used my laptop cam to scan the QR reader that takes you right to Canon’s web site that walks you through set up and install. Nice and easy!

    If you need a photo quality printer probably be better to spend the money on a larger desk top Canon model for pictures. If you need the portability and small form factor this ones a no brainer. Canon is an awesome printer manufacture and this little printer fits perfectly into their lineup!

    prinTR150

    Bought this printer in hopes of a simple way to print borderless and have the ability ţo create a poster. Well not only did that work out but an unexpected surprise arose .... the ink is the cheapest ink I've ever seen in my life. Just gotta look for it with a simple search online.

    Canon Tr150

    I love that is has Bluetooth but I'm very disappointed that it doesn't have the USB port that would allow wired printing straight from a camera. The Ip-100 is the only model which has the original USB port, then on each model upgrade, they took that away. I even ordered the rechargeable battery.

    Compact, versatile and easy to use

    I love this little printer. It does everything it's supposed to do and does it well.

    Setup is a breeze and I love the fact that Canon gives you printed instructions along with an excellently detailed online guide that you can pull up with a quick scan of a QR code, which by the way is printed and also pops up on the printer's display. It even comes with an actual CD if you need it! They truly have all bases covered when it comes to getting this setup.

    Canon offers multiple options for connecting to it as well. A usb to usb-c cable is included, but you can also connect to it wirelessly. I tried the wired connection first. My MacBook instantly recognized it and I was able to print out some labels I needed immediately. I even used thick label sheets and it handled it no problem with excellent quality.

    I then downloaded the Canon app and setup the wireless function to get it connected to my home network. This was also a breeze and I had no issues at all. Everything just worked right away.

    Once you have it connected, the app asks if you want to try it out. So of course I did! It pulled up my photo gallery on my phone, I selected a photo and hit print. I loaded up a 4x6 sheet of photo paper too and the paper feed took it perfectly and to my surprise the picture was borderless!

    While you're not going to get professional photo lab quality pictures out of this, the quality is still very good.

    Best feature of all though, is the size of this printer. It truly is portable. Perfect for small businesses that need to print on the road, like estimators and inspectors who need to print out reports. Or if you're just someone that likes to travel but needs a printer for work, this won't take up much space at all. Hey, if you can work from home why not work from a beach house?

    I honestly don't really have any negatives with this little printer. It may not be the fastest or print out the highest quality pictures, but for what you get, it more than outperforms all expectations, and honestly outperforms other larger printers I've had.

    Great compact portable printer!

    I have been wanting a portable printer for some time and this Canon Pixma TR150 fits the bill nicely. It fits in my backpack with ease and there is an available battery that has to be purchased separately. I wish they would have included the battery but it is a great feature to have. I have been using Canon printers for years now and have always been pleased with them. The Canon TR150 is no exception it is a high-quality compact printer that I can bring with me and print wirelessly from my Phone or my Laptop in my truck to print out invoices for customers and even full-color diagrams or plans. I find the Canon TR150 has a simple and easy to use interface and includes WIFI and Bluetooth for ease of connection to your devices. I am excited to use this printer and will be ordering the battery as soon as possible. If you are looking for a compact portable printer that can operate by battery power the Canon TR150 is a great choice for anyone who needs a printer on the go!

    Flawless Printer

    I chose this printer after about 6 months of analyzing the alternatives. It replaced my Pro-100. Out of the box everything worked. Setup is a bit complex, but faultless following direction carefully. To date I have printed more than 100 prints ranging from a few 8.5x11 up to a number of borderless 27x22’s, a bunch of 27x25’s and 17x36 panoramas. No jams, no ink clogging, simply flawless operation.

    Prints are simply stunning. I use primarily 68# luster and semigloss stock, sometimes metallic. I read a lot of traffic on “wasted ink” used for its various cleaning cycles. I am happy that it keeps itself in good condition so that when I’m ready to print, it is also.

    It has a cool feature that shuts the printer down when any of the ink cartridges are, I think, completely spent. My experience is that occurs about a week or so of printing after it first warn of low ink. Plenty of time to order and receive a replacement.

    Excellent for a photographer or artist

    This is an amazing professional printer. I have spent countless money sending my print orders out to large print houses and now I can just complete the same quality at home. Highly recommend for a photographer or artist with an interest in selling prints.

    Pros: excellent quality and easy to set up

    Cons: takes up a lot of space (if you have a small office), ink is a bit expensive to replace

    Large Canon Printer

    This is an amazing piece of machinery. The quality is definitely what you would except from a Canon product. I print mostly larger images on thick paper and canvas and was blown away by the detail and vibrancy. Maintenance consumes a lot of ink and there are a lot of expensive cartridges to replace, but haven't found this quality print at home in any other printer.

    very good printer, but...

    The printer is very good. This is the only printer can print 17x25. I can print 16x24 using cut paper, no rolls. For me it's a big deal. I have no complains about colors, gradation, noise or etc. However the software is not as good. It works well on PC, but i had a lot of problems using Mac with last software updates. So more complicated prints a have to use PC. Hate it but no choice.

    Pretty Good Compact Printer With Neat Features.

    My experience with the Epson Expression Photo XP-8600 Printer has been mixed. While the printer is very nice looking and it is easy to use, I found that the set-up process was very time consuming, for me at least. Setting up the printer took around an hour at minimum. Installing the 6 ink cartridges was fairly easy. I found that calibrating the Printer Head alignment and making those adjustments was a bit overly complicated due to it being very difficult to see when needing to pick the best results on the test pages. Regardless of the above issue, the Epson Expression Photo XP-8600 Printer does to an excellent job at printing.

    I love that I am able to print photos or other items such as paper documents wirelessly over Wi-Fi from my laptop or even my Smartphone! No more having to hook up a USB Cable from my Printer to my Computer! Using a USB Cable is an option, but it may not always be convenient if your computer set up isn't stationary.

    The Epson Expression Photo XP-8600 Printer allows you to print photos directly from a Memory Card which I believe is a great feature since you can start printing photoswithout having to upload themto your computer first if they do not need to be edited.

    The printer is also voice activated.

    The printer also features the ability to print onto CDs and DVDs. A perfect addition for saving photos or video memories, making keepsake party favors or for any photography business.

    I love the adjustable 4.3 inch touchscreen control panel. It is easy to use. There is no issues being able to see the on-screen options because you can tilt the control panel to better suit your view. I like that I could view step-by-step instructions via the colored touchscreen control panel when installing the ink cartridges and performing other maintenance tasks.

    I do wish that the printer offered the ability to be used as a Fax, for those times when you may unexpectedly need to send a fax, but this printer does have a lot of nice features even if having a fax isn't a requirement for you.

    I do have to wonder how much this printer will cost over time when needing to replace the 6 ink cartridges.. It could possibly get very expensive.. I feel like this could be one of the major Cons regarding this printer. Another small Con is that the power cord seems to get knocked loose from the printer and fall out easily even though I try to make sure that is is plugged in all the way.

    Overall, I think the Epson Expression Photo XP-8600 Printer is a very nice, compact printer if you do not have a lot of space on your desk. It prints very well and has a lot of neat and useful features.

    Fast printer and higher quality

    I have receive this couple days ago and tried to use it. The installing process may take a while when you connect it to a laptop that dont have CD desk (my laptop dont have it so I need to download the epson app). To connect the product in wifi is very fast and the whole installing will be quick and easy just reading the instruction. What I like about this printer is really fast in printing in any kind of documents you want to print. I tried to compare my printer now and my old one it has a big different especially in the quality of photo printing. This printer has more quality of photo. I also like that it has a soft touchscreen because my old one is just the basic one.

    This also has strong mobile connectivity which is really nice to have. I also like the idea that I can use usb drive or SD memory card if ever i want quick and easy of printing. The cons of having this product may cost of using the ink because it has 6 different colors so this may be the issue but if you better quality photos when printer this is worth buying for. This is not a bias review even if that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.” I have some photos that I did when using the product.

    Great photo printer and scanner (All-In-One)

    The Epson XP-8600 is a small photo printer that can also scan and copy items. It does lack an automatic document feeder, but that is not a major drawback. The XP-8600 is a fairly compact unit for what it does. It is quiet with better speeds than my older printers (Canon and Kodak). Its size enables it to be located almost anywhere in your workroom/office. It has a 4.3-inch color touchscreen display for you to use to control its settings and features, which are very easy to use. The panel containing the display tilts upward for ease of use and visibility. The setup was quick and easy, although I did have a little issue with connecting wirelessly to my iMac. I had to connect with a USB cable first to get the wireless to connect. I didn't have to do this on my Windows 10 PCs.

    This printer uses 6-color inkjet technology. The colors came out fairly bright and clear for photos. Black is clear and sharp, too. I printed a couple of images from my Android phone easily and quickly. (There was no setup required for this at all. I just clicked on the print option on the photo and selected the Epson printer.) The prints looked like the photo, although printing on plain paper does not produce as good a photo image as photo paper does. (Prints on photo paper did look a bit pixellated in places. That could be due to using older HP photo paper, which is all I had at the time.) It does print borderless prints in various sizes (and prints on CD/DVDs). 8.5 X 11 documents can be scanned easily on the scanner on top, and scans can be sent to a variety of destinations.

    This is a very nice printer

    My review of the Expression Photo XP-8600 Small-in-One Printer, is really a good one.

    First, it comes with everything you need for completely setting up and ready to print with in a few minutes,

    The instructions are simple and easy to follow.

    The control panel guides you through the easy setup.

    You can connect this printer through blue tooth, Wi-Fi or USB cable, to your cell phone, I-Pad, tablet/reader or computer.

    I love how this printer has two different paper tray sizes you can keep loaded at all times. Making this printer always ready to print. My previous printers I had to always manually load photo paper and adjust for the different size of the papers. Now I just load the larger size(8x10) photo paper, because my (4x6) size is always loaded in the second tray, ready to print.

    I also love the auto turn off setting, that after a certain time the unit turns it's self off. Another energy saver.

    You can also either make adjustments using your device (computer, I-Pad, cell phone or tablet), or you can just go to the setting using the control panel right on the printer. This is so convenient. for checking ink level, paper type, paper size. and so much more.

    The scanner is easy and simple to use and print from.

    The ink tanks are easy to locate and mistake proof to replace.

    All in all this printer offers a whole a lot whether you are a

    novice or a pro you will find this printer does an excellent

    job.

    Prints quality photo pictures.

    I only problem I ran into was using a no name photo paper size 4x6. It would not pick up the paper. But works perfect with Epson photo paper and that is what I will use.

    Perfect for my home office (business and personal)

    The Epson Expression Photo XP-8600 Small-in-One Printer has been a fantastic addition to my home office setup. Upon opening the box, you have your printer, your power cord, manual and ink cartridges. It also includes an instructional disc with information on how to properly setup the printer. I have experience with many different printers, so I opted to try a plug-and-play. I had no issues figuring it out myself as it was a fairly self explanatory and simple process, which the handy digital display helps you through step-by-step. Having a touchscreen digital display also makes for a very quick, simple printing process. It has multiple paper trays for 4x6-8x10 sheets of paper, and also has front or rear loading.

    My favorite feature of all is the wifi connectivity. It took literally 30 seconds to get this printer connected to my wifi, and the connection is very strong even with my router being in another area of my home. I absolutely love that all I had to do was download Epson's app on my phone and now I can seamlessly & effortlessly print any photo from my device or from anywhere on the internet with just a few clicks. It prints quickly, and the photos are crisp and colorful. With 6 color cartridges, this printer can sure print some vibrant photos. The ink cartridges are also super simple to install and if you're running low, the printer will let you know. Epson really put forth an effort with this series that I can appreciate!

    Perfect For All My Needs!

    I work from home, homeschool my 3 kids, and do a lot of crafting. This printer is perfect for everything I need it for. Set up was easy and I love the color screen on the front helping me step by step. I'm able to print out weekly sales reports for my work in a breeze because it's not only quick but it's also quiet and prints sales reports and tax papers with a professional look.

    Since my kids are homeschooled I am constantly printing out work for them, my old printer just couldn't keep up. I print around 20+ pages of school work a day and it caused my old printer to lag, making it take so much longer than I wanted. But with this printer it's almost like I'm the one that has to keep up because once I'm done pushing that "Print" button and start to push print on another.. the first one is already done!

    After all work is done (mine and the kids) I like to work on some of my hobbies which include paper crafting, card making, and more. Pictures that I print out for family look so professional. The colors are vibrant, there's no lines, and it's much quicker than our last printer. Plus I LOVE being able to print out pictures from home! I really have nothing negative to say about this thing. It's made work around here so much more pleasant and faster.

    Awesome compact printer

    I am really happy with this All in One compact printer, it was very easy to connect to my PC using the CD that was included and will connect easily to a phone or tablet using the Epson iprint app.

    This little printer is super fast and the colors of the ink cartridges turn out beautiful high quality photos. This printer will also do plain paper, envelopes and can do printable CD/DVD's and a awesome bonus you can use this printer with Google assistant or Alexa.

    There is touch screen so you do not have to use a PC to print your photos, another plus that I find useful it has 2 sided printing for documents, a must for my home office. Overall a awesome little printer.

    Great quality images!

    This epson photo printer provides a high quality print on both regular and photo paper. The machine itself is easy to set up following the provided instructions. The on screen guide is a great assist to handle the correcting of any issues that may arise during the initial set up process.

    This printer has the capability to handle both 4x6 and 8 1/2 × 11 paper, with two separate trays.

    Connecting to a wireless network was extremely easy. The machine picked up our wifi signal as soon as it was set up, with no delays. I was easily able to download the app from the app store on my phone and had high quality photo prints within minutes.

    The photos print extremely quick and are clear, high quality images that look like they were professionally printed.

    The scanner feature creates very clear copies of original images and documents. The quality of photographs scanned and printed were no less than the quality of the prints I printed for the first time.

    I really like how the screen panel opens and tilts for easier viewing.

    Overall, this is the best photo Painter I have ever used. Epson created a wonderful product.

    This is a review for the Epson Expression Photo XP-8600 Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    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 .

    Great Printer

    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.

    Great Value Inkjet Printer

    The biggest problem with buying an inkjet printer in the past has been the value proposition. While the printer itself is fairly inexpensive, the ink costs fat exceed the actual value you get out of the printer. This is where the Brother "INKvestment tank" comes in. Brother advertises up to a year worth of ink in the box when you purchase one of these printers as well as up to a year of ink when you replace the cartridge. This is a game changer for the inkjet industry and when purchasing a new printer, and economics is a concern, you can now add an inkjet back in the mix of your laser printer choices and save some cash in the process!

    I have not had the opportunity to deplete the cartridge yet, but I have used it as my main printer for about a month in total and the ink levels are still in the 90%. I'm not a heavy printer user normally, but this past month has been income taxes, numerous shipping labels, general office related documents, and in all, i've consumed about a ream of paper total (500 sheets).

    This printer is super easy to setup. I chose to join it to my WiFi using the iOS app. Setup took all of about 10 minutes. Once setup and on my WiFi, i went to my computers and installed the Brother printer driver, again, super simple on a Windows 10 machine, took about 5 minutes total. On my macs, simply adding as an airprint printer was all that was needed. Installing the official driver just added the scanner functionality to the OS.

    The touchscreen interface on the printer itself is super minimal and easy to use. Copy, scan, print is VERY easy, Just click the corresponding button and you're done. These same buttons and functionality are present in the desktop application. This desktop application is super minimal and simple. I found this pleasant but others may need more advanced features, though Brother supplies a TWAIN driver for use of applications like Photoshop or others to be used for advanced scanning.

    There are two trays on this printer, a top tray that supports about 200 sheets and the lower tray that is another 300. Together they support a full ream of paper.

    My largest complaint is that there is a sleep setting that can only be set to a maximum of 9 minutes. When in sleep mode, sending print jobs did not "wake" the printer for me and I had to walk to it and wake it up. Adding in the ability to turn off this feature would be nice.

    Scanning is fast and easy however the scanning feeder only holds 17-20 sheets. This is fine for my needs and likely most people, though heavier scanner users may need a larger feeder.

    Printing is quick and of nice quality. The initial setup requires you to go through some calibration, but afterwards prints came out clear, of nice color, and fairly fast.

    This printer works great on iOS using the AirPrint feature as well. The printer was easily found and printed out anything I asked it to do with ease.

    All in all this is a great simple to use printer with the promise of added value by more economical ink tanks. I recommend this printer to anyone looking for such features. More "power users" will likely want to look elsewhere though.

    Excellent printer with 1YR of Ink included

    I have owned several printers from popular manufacturers but have had two that stopped working recently after a fairly short period of time so I am looking forward to trying something new with expanded features. This is the Best Brother Printer I have used yet. With the trends of having Ink programs this comes with it which is better than some subscription models out there with other manufacturers.

    Unboxing & Physical Features:

    The printer comes extremely well packaged with thick boxing and Styrofoam inserts. Whether you are picking this up from the store or having it shipped, I don’t think you’ll have any concerns! The printer is solid and the perfect size for my use and space. I am a moderate user. I use the different features of an all-in-one printer but since I’m not utilizing if for anything particularly professional with high-volume, I don’t want it to take up a ton of space. So, I especially love that all the features that matter to me are packed into reasonable dimensions and the printer is not extremely tall. It fits perfectly in my desk credenza cabinet with only 11.25 inches of vertical space. I can get to the top document feeder and/or lift the top lid just enough to use it for scanning and copying. Also, everything can be accessed from the front! Most importantly, the ink loads right from the front so I wouldn’t need to take the printer out to load the ink! Also, the power cable is in the back, but extends from the left side. PERFECT for me because you can slide the printer back into the shelf without losing space or concern of smashing the cord.

    Setting up:

    This was a piece of cake. There are simple printed instructions but you can honestly just follow the prompts. Plug it in, load the paper, pop in the ink cartridges, check the alignment and you’re set! The ink cartridges are the simplest that I have ever had on a printer. With my previous printers, I had to pull them out of the shelf and open the whole unit to access the ink on the inside. With this one, you just flip down the front port and pop them in. They click in perfectly and extremely fast. BRILLIANT. It takes just a few minutes for the new ink to load and to do the recommended alignment. This is a standard process that my other printers had. If you’ve never done this before, it prints a test page that you place back on the scanner for it to check and self-adjust.

    I do not use a hardwired Ethernet cable or phone/fax line. So for me it was just finding the wifi, entering the password and it was on the network in seconds and ready to go.

    General Use:

    The printer has a small LCD full color touch screen on a panel that can be tilted for a better viewing angle. For me it is perfect because my printer cabinet is near the floor and I can tilt the panel up to see without having to get on the floor. The screen leads you to all the functions like scans/copying/sending to web apps/etc. and to adjust settings. The menus are intuitive and the layout is simple. It is not complicated or overwhelming. You can also download the app on your mobile device to check ink levels, adjust settings or print/scan/copy through the app. Pretty cool! This printer has 2 trays which combined should hold about 400 sheets (a whole pack is 500). This is an upgrade over my previous printer.

    Printer/Copier:

    Printing from from a laptop and mobile device is simple. Very short lag for warm up time and printing is fast and the printer is not too loud. The text comes out crisp and clear on standard settings. I have not tried photo printing but I did print a presentation including graphics and a photo and the colors turn out very clear and accurately reflect what I see on my computer/device screen. I’ve printed different documents from different applications and all have the same great results. My disclaimer is that I don’t have much experience in photo printing or extensive printing of significant color documents so I’m not able to comment on that.

    Copying is easy and the top document feeder is really nice to have. Since the overall form factor of this machine is modest, I don’t think the document feeder is intended for a huge stack of pages to copy but I believe it will work for most of my needs.

    Scanner:

    I tend to use this feature frequently on my printers. To scan and email, it was just a matter of entering my email addresses and it saves those for you for ongoing use. I’ve always relied on the scan to pdf approach and email and this worked without a hitch. However, there are other features like sending straight to your google drive, dropbox, Evernote, etc or even scanning to other file formats like word or power point. I will be experimenting with these features over time.

    Conclusion:

    I’m not sure how long the ink will last or the cost of the replacement cartridges and it seems that is always the unknown component of printers. However, for me this printer is excellent. You can set it up and use it right away, the size is right, the features are right and the quality meets all my applications.

    Brother MFC-J4535DW inexpensive, full featured

    Brother MFC-J4535DW INKvestment Tank Color Inkjet Printer, brand new and just $200 at Best Buy, offers easy set up and robust performance for homes and small businesses. With up to one year of ink in the box, based on up to 150 pages per month, and in typical Brother fashion, this new model offers more for less than ever before. You’re going to like this printer!

    I’ve used and recommended Brother printers, both monochrome (black & white) laser and inkjet, for nearly 20 years. I find them to be excellent printers as well as long lasting and more economical to operate than competitive brands.

    **WHAT’S IN THE BOX**

    • Brother MFC-J4535DW COLOR inkjet printer

    • Starter INKvestment cartridges in Black, Cyan, Magenta and Yellow.

    • Startup guide, warranty

    **THE SETUP**

    What is Brother INKvestment? This is the company’s hybrid ink cartridge with internal ink tanks system. How does it work? During setup and after the four provided starter ink cartridges are installed, this printer primes and fills sealed internal tanks from the ink in the cartridges. According to Brother, “INKvestment TANK cartridges still plug into the machine like a normal cartridge. No messy bottles to worry about. Think of the new cartridges like a water cooler bottle - there are no mechanisms on the bottle - all the working parts are in the body of the cooler. The same is true with the new INKvestment TANK cartridges - they are a reservoir for ink. All the mechanisms for removal of air bubbles and feeding to the printhead are located inside the printer's sub-tank assembly.

    There is no ink waste - the cartridges are completely drained into the sub-tank. There is no remaining ink needed in the cartridges to protect the print head. Because the system is completely closed, there are no concerns about the ink drying up. As long as the machine remains connected to a power source, it is able to regulate the humidity and keep the ink fresh and ready to use.

    Once the cartridges are ‘empty,’ there are approximately 200 pages of usage in the sub-tank.

    New intelligent Ink Meter... aka Page Gauge... will not only allow you to check to remaining ink volume, but you'll also be able to see an approximate count of the number of pages remaining for each color. This can be shown as an ISO page count or User page count based on actual printing habits.”

    Two sets of replacement ink are offered, standard yield said to be about 3,000 copies and high yield rated at about 6,000 pages or copies. This model is so new that replacement ink is not yet listed or available, so I am unable to provide price information.

    Setup follows the proscribed path in the easy-to-follow instructions, with the emphasis on EASY.

    After plugging in, follow instructions to install the provided ink. While waiting, follow the advice on the 2.7" color display to load some paper into either or both internal trays holding a total of about 400 pages, and then perform other settings during the approximate four-minute internal setup. INKvestment follows this path after the initial set of ink cartridges are installed. During the wait, this is when ink is pulled from the cartridges into the sealed internal tank system to partially fill it in readiness for print jobs. The internal setup is completed after a test copy is printed and another step is completed for the purpose of assuring that the on-board scanner performs accurately. And, of course, it did.

    According to a Brother representative, another INKvestment technology advantage avoids the occasional head cleaning cycles experienced with other products and technologies. The sealed tanks and air-free delivery system is more ink efficient. When ink cartridges are replaced, there is no waste from priming as is customary with conventional color inkjet systems. Once installed, the new ink flows to refill internal tanks where required.

    Next, the Brother Mobile Connect software was downloaded and installed on an iPhone, iPad and Android phone. Similarly, both Mac and Windows software for Brother printers was installed on two computers. The new printer was wirelessly connected to our home Wi-Fi network on the 2.4 GHz band only, as that is how printers and most other IoT (Internet of Things) devices join our networks. Finally, the new printer was added in the conventional way to both Macs and Windows PCs here and the printer firmware was checked for any needed updates. None was needed. And now, let’s put it to the test!

    **PUT TO THE TEST**

    This was so simple, as it should be. Duplex print, copy and scan, plus fax performed successfully, flawlessly. Going deeper, I printed documents in black & white in both highest quality and normal mode. Color photos on high quality photo paper at highest quality looked beautiful, though this is not presented as a photo printer. Faxes went through without issue when sent from a digital document on my computer as well as from documents scanned in the on-board ADF with approximately 25-page capacity.

    The Brother Mobile Connect app performed perfectly, accessing controls for printing documents and photos, scanning, copying and a maintenance button to poll ink supplies. Scan history can be stored through the app. I was able to print documents and photos from mobile devices as well as print from content in all the usual cloud services to this printer. I set up document and photo scanning, as well. It operates smoothly, easily and intuitively.

    **CONCLUSION**

    Ideal for high quality, low monthly COLOR printing volume, Brother MFC-J4535DW is highly recommended by this reviewer.

    **WARRANTY**

    Brother MFC-J4535DW is covered by the Brother Two-Year Limited Warranty and Replacement Service.

    Middle of the road

    Brother MFC-J4535

    The Brother MFC-J4535 Inkvestment ink jet printer resembles most of Brother’s other MFC printers. Primarily plastic with plastic pieces. This is my second MFC printer and other than a few design changes they are pretty much the same.

    The J4535 is an “INKvestment” model, using a larger ink tank cartridge to fill a smaller internal tank on the print heads. I guess this is to compete with Epson’s ecotank line. The unit ships with what Brother called the “starter” cartridges and advertises on the box and unit that it has enough ink to last up to a year (fine print: when printing only 150 pages per month). There are two versions of the cartridge, the regular which is about 3000 pages and the XL which is double at 6000 pages. I was unable to find a duty cycle rating for this machine.

    The J4535 comes with two paper trays which hold up to 400 sheets. It can handle 8.5x14 paper in either tray; however, legal paper sticks out the front of the machine. There is also a single-sheet feed in the rear of the machine for thicker paper and card stock. Brother says you can use coated or photo paper in the top tray but I prefer to use the single sheet feeder.

    Connecting the machine to my wireless network was quick and easy and installing the software went as expected on both my Windows and Mac computers and laptops. They all found and recognized the printer without incident. The software includes PaperPort SE 14 for document handling. Most of my scanning is to create PDF’s so I use Acrobat rather than the bundled products. I find bundled software like PaperPort cumbersome but generally usable.

    Other than the lack of the flip-up document holder, the scanner is the same as my previous model, which is nice, especially if you have it on a shelf with low clearance. There is a flip up catch to stop the scanned documents from running off the top and over the edge. You can also lift up the feeder and use the flat glass to scan items that can't go through the feeder. Scanning is good quality and depending on settings, moves through at a decent pace although I wouldn't consider it high speed and it does not do auto duplexing like the printer does. The software gives you the choice of output including PDF, JPEG, PNG, TEXT, RTF and TIFF. It will also auto-rotate your documents. You can create workflows which save your favorite settings for things like photos and documents. Scanning to email and cloud services like google and dropbox are also supported.

    The print quality from the J4535 is acceptable and pretty much the same as my previous Brother MFC machine. Text is readable at 8 points, colors are accurate and shading was smooth both in gray scale and color. I would have liked the black to be a bit darker. Although not as crisp and dark as I would like, I was using standard copy paper and not inkjet specific paper which has a less porous finish and is a bit more expensive. Repeating the same page using a generic glossy photo paper fared even worse than expected. Using photo paper in the media settings - the print took considerably longer and the ink created spots and drops in solid areas. Using the same paper but with regular media selected, the drops in solid areas got even worse. This is clearly not a photo printer. Examples of prints and how the scanner works are included.

    There is also a front mounted usb port to print directly from a thumb drive but this seems limited to jpeg files and with the print quality I mentioned, not something I see getting much use.

    The printer does have an auto-duplex mode to print on both sides of the page which is very convenient when sending a large print job, however as mentioned above, the scanner is only single sided so it's a no go on double sided copies unless you duplex manually.

    The Brother MFC-J4535 also does faxing but in 2021 I don't know why. Like many people these days I don't have a landline phone line. The fax system seems to be full featured and there if you need it.

    The LCD touch screen is easy to see and the interface makes it easy to use and control all of the device's features.

    Like many printers these days, Brother provides a mobile app that allows you to print and scan to and from your phone. The app works as expected and is great for road warriors that use their phones.

    Final thoughts - this machine is plastic and the paper trays and supports are pretty flimsy and need to be used with care. The reason I purchased my first Brother printer was due to it having the least expensive consumables however, after having to purchase new ink cartridges every time I print (which is not that frequently) it might not be such a great deal. It is important to know that even when turned off, this machine, like most other Brother machines, will turn on to perform print head maintenance which drinks ink to keep the nozzles clean. While this is not the first INKvestment printer Brother makes, it is a new design cartridge and I havent found replacements yet. The wireless connectivity is a huge convenience and the mobile app is a nice touch. While it might be possible to refine the print quality by working with the settings and using different paper, I find print quality out of the box with default settings to be a touch disappointing.

    There are three models in this INKvestment lineup so far. Unless you absolutely need multiple paper trays for the convenience of using different paper sizes, I would hesitate to recommend this model but would steer you to the mid-range version.

    If you need dual paper trays because you print that much, an inkjet printer might not be your best investment.

    Good quality printer with lots of features

    This Brother printer has all of the features that we were looking for in an all-in-one printer (print/copy/scan/fax). Set-up is easy and straight forward with the included set-up guide and starter ink cartridges. It’s great that this model includes up to one year of ink in-box based on print volumes of approximately 150 pages a month and 60% black/40% color. High capacity ink cartridges are front-loaded in what Brother calls their Front-Loaded Tank Cartridge Technology which provides easy, convenient access. Two paper trays offer a 400-sheet paper capacity so this is a nice model for small or home business use.

    One of the best features offered by today’s printers that include connectivity via Wifi is mobile printing. It is very easy to install the Brother Mobile Connect App to enable one to access features to print documents and photos, scan, copy and maintenance/ink levels. The abililty to print directly from a mobile device such as a phone or tablet is such a nice convenience to have in a printer. The printer is compatible with Windows, Apple AirPrint and Mopria (Android). One can print-from and scan-to cloud services from the printer’s 2.7” color touchscreen.

    Print quality has been great and we’ve found the mobile app convenient and easy to use. The printer build quality seems very good and Brother offers At Your Side support for the life of the printer. Auto-fulfillment of ink is supported through the Refresh by Brother program that delivers ink automatically and just in time to your door. One can also access the Brother Creative Center to customize and print professionally designed home and business templates for free. The printer comes with a one-year warranty.

    Home/Office/Family AOI With Numerous Features

    To begin with Brother has been making business technology equipment for over one hundred years. They have proven to be quality-built, dependable, and reliable through these many years. So, I jumped at the chance to review this Brother MFC-J4535DW (AIO) INKvestment Tank Inkjet Printer in exchange for the actual product. Was very interested in the ink-tank printers because they have a larger ink reservoir and hold much more ink then a standard inkjet cartridge. The have proven to last longer between cartridge changes and much more cost effective if you have a larger volume of printing tasks.

    Here is why I am impressed with this Brother INKvestment Tank Inkjet Printer:

    ** SETUP – Pretty easy by following the included 'Quick Setup Guide'. I found the steps indicated in this guide were detailed with helpful illustrations. The ink tank cartridges are front loading and facing, and snap, easily into place. Within 30 minutes I was ready to print. Most of the hardware printer setup can be done on the 2.7 LCD adjustable, touchscreen including the Wi-Fi connection to my router. However, it did take longer to download and install the full driver and software package on my laptop. I also downloaded and installed additional software Brother has available, PaperPort, for my Home-Office document use.

    ** CONNECTION – I had my choice of a wireless Wi-Fi connection to my home router, USB, or Ethernet direct wired connections. I preferred the Wi-Fi setup to my home network so I could also use my desktop, tablet, phone, and both laptops for printing tasks. Also wanted my Grand Kids to have their mobile devices connected wirelessly since they visit me almost everyday after school, and have homework to print out. Additionally, devices can be connected through Wi-Fi Direct.

    ** PRINT QUALITY – My home office documents are sharp, professional looking, and easy to read. They can easily be adjusted for more printer options using the 2.7 LCD, on-board touchscreen. The black tank cartridge can produce approximately 2300 pages of printed material. The Red, Blue, and Yellow cartridges can produce approximately 1200 pages of color. Hopefully, that will meet my Grand Kids printing needs for a long time. WooHoo! Color printing is FUN again without the worry of depleting the color cartridges quickly. I printed out several of my Grand Kids end-of-school-photos, and they did quite nicely. However, I do not recommend using glossy photo paper with this tank-ink. Flat or non-glossy photo paper works well.

    ** ALL IN ONE – This printer allows me to print, copy, scan, and fax. I did not setup the fax. Copies are produced at 1200 x 1200 dpi, and allow me many options like 'fit-to-page', 'base-color-removal', watermark, etc. Copies can also be Reduced/Enlarged 25% - 400% in 1% increments. The auto-document feeder holds up to 20 pages. The scanning function is very fast and duplicates colors accurately.

    ** PAPER CAPACITY – Approximately 400 pages using Main Paper Tray and the By-Pass Tray. Both trays will accept up to 8.5" x 14" (legal size), Letter, 4x6, 5x8, 3.5x5, 5x7, and A4 and photo paper with borderless printing.

    ** BROTHER SOFTWARE – I Print & Scan is a great app. It gives me a multitude of options to print out documents, and, or images. Additional software is available like Brother Creative Center, which allows me to create cards, brochures, announcements, etc. from hundreds of stock templates. My Grand Kids want me to explore more of this Creative Center for their own personal FUN. YooHoo!

    In summary this Brother is packed with high-end features found in more expensive printers. This is my ideal Home/Office/Family printer. I have not found my first dislike of this printer. For its price-point and the numerous functions this Brother MFC-J4535DW provides it is a 'bargain'. I highly recommend the purchase of this Brother INKvestment Tank Inkjet Printer. You will NOT be disappointed.

    Great Brother Ink Jet

    Purchased to augment my Canon Pixma and Brother laser printers. Probably the Best Buy and will use this printer as my primary. Excellent print quality and easy to setup. It has a large ink reservoir with individual tanks for each CMBY color, plus two paper trays large capacity. The touch screen menu is easy to use and understand. This printer is an excellent choice.

    Great Printer with a Lot of Ink

    First time user of the Brother INKvesment Tank Inkjet printer and i love it.

    Over the past years i owned a variety of different printers from major brands and one thing i found annoying was the cartridge life.

    Well no more worries with Brother

    This printer came with the largest cartridge out the box and after a lot of photo printing that i've done the past few days they are still holding strong. A quality that other brands can't match.

    -Quality of document printing is flawless and fast. Fast is also for photo printing but i found necessary to adjust the brightness on some photos in order to reproduce a realistic copy of the original.

    -It also has Fax and Scanning functions and they work great either for home or work office.

    -Out the box is a very intuitive and easy to connect printer. Had great integration with my apple products and i started to print right away.

    -The color lcd display is very helpful throughout the installation as well when you have printing jobs.

    I would strongly recommend to try this Brother MFCJ4535DW printer for who is on the market for one. You won't be disappointed!

    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 .

    Great Printer

    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.

    Home Office Need!

    This printer is great for everyday print jobs, as well as beautiful pics!

    The only reason I did not shoot for 5 stars is due to the wifi connection when printing from your phone. Similar to most printers, if your lockscreen display times out prior to the printer receiving the print job, you will be disappointed to find that the printer will still pick up the job and print out the incomplete photo with gray ink! You can waste a ton if you make this mistake often! -Make sure to keep your backlight lit until your phone reads "job received" to avoid this. Otherwise, the printer does its job just perfectly!!!

    Good for photos, not good for paper prints

    **This printer was provided for an early review, thus as of the time of this review, some features may not work as it should.

    The Envy Photo 7155 lives up to its name, as your typical prints on paper will likely be envious of their photo counterparts, as they look much worse. As I’m told, this printer is optimized for photo prints, which turned out vibrant and crisp, but when printing on paper, the results are subpar with lines evenly spaced out throughout the print. There are ways to workaround that (described below), but you shouldn’t have to do it. Black and white texts prints are fast and sharp. Scanning speed is decent, but lacks all but basic post processing. You have two choices of software, HP Smart app or HP Print Assistant, each with their own quirks. I prefer the HP Print since it has more options for scanning. The other issues I’ve had with this printer is that it’s quite loud, shakes, and have a terrible touchscreen. It uses a tri-color cartridge, which will likely end up with one color running out first. IMO, a specialized printer that can’t do basic printing isn’t going to cut it, especially at this price point. Even my cheaper, 7 year old Epson printer outperforms this printer in almost every way.

    Good:

    -Text prints fast and clear

    -Photo prints looks great

    -Scan is decent

    -Design is nice

    Bad:

    -Prints on plain paper have lines throughout.

    -Loud and shakes while printing

    -Touch screen is small and unresponsive

    -Uses single cartridge for 3 colors

    -Post scan correction is lacking

    Setting up:

    Out of the box, the printer looked nice. It has the same color scheme as my HP Spectre laptop, which I appreciated. After powering it on, I was prompted to download the app to set up the printer. I ran into my first problem in that it didn’t detect my printer and I had to set it up manually using the printer’s screen. Not a big deal, it’s a few simple steps to setup the network, but the 2 inch touch screen is just awful to use. It’s so unresponsive to touch and scroll that it feels like using an old touch screen device from 10 years ago! After detecting my printer, I had a choice of either downloading the HP Smart app from the Microsoft store, just software and drivers, or just drivers for basic functions. First I installed the Smart app. The app allowed me to print either documents or photos, scan, and run maintenance and printer reports. I thought the app was too simple, especially for the scan option. I downloaded the HP Printer software and driver instead, and that gave me more options to play around with. Great, printer setup and ready to use.

    Printing, scanning, and copying:

    This printer is quite loud, making a lot of clicking and grinding sounds during operation. It also shakes badly while printing. Better to have a sturdy table or stand because this will shake the whole table like a mini earthquake. I had this on the same table as my desktop and immediately moved it.

    As the name implies, this printer’s strong point is that it’s optimized to print photos, and on that it met my expectations. A 4x6 printed relatively quick, and looks more vibrant and sharper than my previous printer, but it doesn’t have the same sheen. Darker colors will have a matte finish which is very noticeable in the light. I wouldn’t call it studio quality, but it’s passable.

    Now we get to my biggest issue with this, the printing on “plain paper.” When doing so, I would get equally spaced lines. If printing big blocks of color, these lines are even more noticeable. It looked as if the printhead was defective, but after changing them out, I still got the same results. The workaround is that I have to set it to best quality and choose a different paper type from within the printer settings. Doesn’t matter which one, as long as it’s not “plain paper.” However this will waste more ink and may over saturate the paper. I’m told that this is typical for this line of printers. On the other hand, text prints out fast and clear.

    Scanning takes about 15 seconds, but afterwards, the image processing were very limited with the only options to adjust are rotation, brightness, contrasts, and midtones. Without correction, scans tends to be faded and washed out. The auto exposure option didn’t look great either. My old Epson has a much better software for their scans.

    Copying has the same line issue as with printing on paper. It takes a bit longer than a typical copier. Black and white looks about as what you would get from a Xerox, while colors will look like a typical printout.

    *I’ve attached some printouts that I scanned back in. Notice the white lines every ¾ in. The scans are faded, but it’s more prominent in the actual prints.

    If you need an all-in-one printer, I can’t fully recommend this printer. It does one thing well, while lacking in the rest. Maybe if you only print photos, but even then there are other printers that can do that while being able to print nice color prints as well.

    Feature-Packed, Simple Operation, & Great Photos

    Out of the box it took me approximately thirty minutes to set-up and download the printer software. Included with the printer is a six-foot,120v power cord, User Set-Up and Connection Guide, two (first-use) printing cartridges (*64 tri-color and *64 black), and five HP (4” x 6”) glossy photo papers. After connecting the printer directly to my laptop using Wi-Fi Direct (not through my network router) I selected five of my favorite pictures for photo printing. I anxiously waited as the printer queued-up. But, it only took about ninety seconds to print each 4” x 6” glossy photo. The professional quality of each printed photo, rich color, and striking detail blew me away. WoW!

    Hardware and Software Features of the HP ENVY Photo 7155 AIO:

    Two paper trays – one dedicated photo (top) and one for documents or large photos (bottom).

    * Through the HP App you choose which paper tray and size to use.

    * Photo tray is designed for three sizes, 4” x 5”, 4” x 6”, and 5” x 7”.

    * Document tray accepts both 8 1/2” x 11” printing and, or, large photo paper, and standard A4 envelopes.

    Duplexer – Allows for two sided printing and copying to save paper.

    * I can select this option through the HP software on my laptop, or, my mobile devices, smartphone or tablet, or, using the touchscreen display window on the printer.

    USB Port – On back of unit adjacent to the power plug is a USB Type 'B' Port.

    * To connect your device, you will need a USB Type 'A' to Type 'B' cable (not furnished)

    SD Card Slot – On front left of unit located in a compartment with round door.

    * Accepts both SDHC or SDXC memory cards.

    * I can view photos or documents directly from my SD card and print from the touchscreen display window.

    Touchscreen Color Display Window – Touch for basic menu options, Copy, Scan, Photo.

    * Scroll down each menu item for choices, selection, and details.

    * Has touch and illuminated Home, Help, and Return buttons.

    * Help has many useful 'How To Videos', Tips, Product Tour and Printer Information.

    * Swipe down from top of display window to open your Dashboard.

    * Here are Icons for Settings, Wireless Status and Connections, HP E-Print Set-Up for mobile devices, Wi-Fi Direct Status and Set-Up, Estimated Ink Cartridge Levels, and Environmental Settings as this HP ENVY Photo 7155 Printer is Energy Star Compliant (sleep time, one/two sided copies, etc.).

    Wireless Connectivity – Printer is dual radio band, 2.4 GHz and 5 Hz, for home network.

    * Wi-Fi home network connection allows for Internet access so I can print anything from Internet sites both social and educational, and from any location I am at.

    * Bluetooth for printing directly from my smartphone, tablet, or other mobile devices.

    * Printing, copying, and scanning can all be initiated from the HP software over Wi-Fi home network.

    * Wi-Fi Direct allows me to connect up to five specified devices without going through home network router for more 'family-control' purposes.

    Scanner – Using the HP downloaded software I can scan documents or photos easily.

    * I can scan using my computer, tablet, or smartphone, or, from an SD memory card.

    * Once I scan a document I can send it as an e-mail attachment or file it for later use.

    Printing – Super sharp color photos from PC, smartphone, or other mobile devices.

    * Laser-like caliber printing from black cartridge ink. The HP software allow you to set the quality, and, or greyscale, number of copies, etc.

    * TIP: Use quality printing and photo paper for best results – color pics printed out on the furnished, glossy, photo paper are spectacular.

    Illuminated On/Off Button – At left front of unit. Shuts unit off and wakes from sleep.

    * Printer automatically awakes from sleep-mode when printing task is in its queue.

    HP Software – Available for download at 123.hp.com or Apple Store.

    * For all mobile devices use HP ePrint for Android and IOS, Air Print.

    After using the HP ENVY Photo 7155 AIO, daily, for over a week, I am convinced that this printer is probably one of the most versatile you can buy for home network use at its price point. For me the best attributes are the Wi-Fi Direct connections and the double-sided copying. In the Wi-Fi Direct options in the Dashboard I changed the settings from 'automatic' to 'manual', which allows me to use a special password (no one else knows) to access this printer. I did this to keep my kids from printing numerous photos. I already have a Wi-Fi home network, laserjet (black ink, cartridge only printer). My kids would use all of my glossy photo paper and tri-color ink cartridge up in one day without this extra protection over my regular, Wi-Fi home network. I am still on Wi-Fi, just don't go through my home network router. I am no longer King-Of-My-Castle, but definitely King-Of-My-Printer. WooHoo!

    I highly recommend this feature-packed printer and especially for all its versatility for home use. It is an easy learning curve, and, fairly simple to operate. The Product Demo and 'How To Videos' gives me a visual Users' Manual on the printer that I can access anytime. Classes resume shortly, this would make a great gift for any college or serious high school student. It also is an outstanding purchase for anyone, who loves high quality photos, Mom, Dad, or Grandparents.

    This HP Printer Does It All

    I really like this printer. It's well made, simple to set up and easily controlled via the HP Smart app. You can even control your printer from Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant or use AirPrint or Google Assistant capable, to easily print from your mobile device. And with the HP Smart App, you can print from literally any place you have access to Wifi. Flexibility is the name of game here.

    In terms of capability, you can print up to 14 pages per minute (ppm) in black and up to 9 ppm in color with up to 4800 x 1200 dpi color resolution. HP makes getting printer cartridges beyond easy, by letting you sign up for Instant Ink, a reasonably priced monthly payment plan, which monitors the ink levels automatically for and when you need new cartridges, they simply ship them to you. I did the math and found the monthly cost is less than buying printer cartridges in-store.

    The paper tray stores up to 125 sheets of paper and it has a separate tray for photo paper. On the side of the printer is a door which swings open where you'll find a built-in memory card slot and USB 2.0 port to simply plug in a memory card, USB drive camera or other device to print directly from. Photo printing is terrific.

    The printer is duplex capable, so you can direct your printouts to print on both sides of a single page of paper. You also have a simple to use Flatbed scanner with up to 1200 x 1200 dpi optical resolution and for clear copies, you get up to 600 x 600 dpi in color and 300 x 300 dpi in black.

    Setup of the printer couldn't be easier. Download the HP Smart App to your mobile device and also get it from the Microsoft Store for your computer. Create an account sing in and then the app finds the printer and connects it to your home network automatically. On your computer, the HP Smart App will download all the printer drivers for you and add an icon on your desktop to manage the printer functions. It takes literally minutes and is so simple all the around.

    You can control the printer via the front panel 2.65" CGD (color graphics display) touch screen, to print, store files and access business apps directly from the printer.

    We've had the printer now for a few weeks and it's been spot on reliable. If there was one thing I would change it would be to have automated the slide out tray which your prints rest on (so they don't fall on the floor). Since I print from home, office and just about anywhere, the little tray needs to be out all the time, or you'll come home and find your printed pages on the floor. Since the location of the printer in my home is deep enough, it's not an issue, but the much older printer we had which this HP Printer replaced had a tray which popped out automatically when you printed something. If this is the only thing I can find to complain about, I'd say it's very minor as overall, the printer is excellent and should stand the test of time.

    All in all, this is a great printer, with terrific and easy to use controls and as you would expect from HP, the print quality is excellent. Add in the Instant Ink program and this couldn't be simpler to keep going.

    Nice printer

    Please beware that I am not able to give a full review because of the cartridge error.

    First off, (I am not fully sure if this is the problem) make sure that that the setup is completed before putting in the cartridges. Also, make sure the cartridges included in the box state Start Up; make sure you have your phone available to download the app, HP Smart. This will assist you in connecting to the wifi and you can also print from the app.

    Once you download the app, open, and have ready when you turn on the printer. When you turn on the printer, if your wifi has a password, the blue light will blink. You have to manually add the wifi on the app.

    So because I have the cartridge error, I am unable to say how well the printer works using the app and the screen but I will say that printing is pretty fast and color is great. (I was able to print diagnostics and align the printer.)

    I am still a huge fan of HP but I really hope that they get rid of the start up cartridges. I would buy again and I will be contacting HP to see if they are willing to send another set of start up cartridges or help me bypass the error message.

    Excellent compact printer!

    I absolutely LOVE this printer! It is much smaller than your typical printer, yet better than the larger ones in many ways. The cover for the printer is unnecessary but nice none the less. Set up was a breeze, I used my iPhone and the coinciding app. Installing the ink was a snap, literally, it snaps in. I used all of the 5 included photo papers quickly as I had to learn to use the app and the first 3 photos were cut off or aligned incorrectly, user error on my part. But I must say the photos are beautiful! Seriously, they are professional quality.The ink was dry instantly. It printed the SnapChat filter flawlessly too. I immediately ordered photo paper from Best Buy to start printing more photos, no more paying for crappy ones at the local drug stores, I can now print them right from my phone in the convenience of my home. You can print documents from you phone or computer as well, which also look great, no bleeding ink. You can sign up for the instant ink with HP and get 50 pages per month for $2.99, that's the lowest plan, but you can print as many photos from your phone as you want and they don't count against your page number for the month. Its kind of confusing but I signed up anyway because the first 2 months are free so I figure I'll know if I like it by the time my free trial is up, worth a shot since you get more free ink!

    A New Take on Printing and it's Cute

    I think I like this compact and cool Tango X printer from Hewlett Packard. I say I think, because to be honest, it’s pretty radically different from any home printer I’ve owned or used.

    First the Good:

    · It’s really small. A lot of printers, including the one I was using, but is now sitting in a closet, are much larger.

    · It’s cute. It really is. It’s pretty quiet too and even has a more quiet mode.

    · If you get the Tango X (as opposed to the Tango), it comes with a cool binder sort of case, which all I can liken it to is a very large book binder. When the printer isn’t being used and you’d prefer to have your printer look well, less like a printer, you just lower the paper holder top and close the binder (which also serves as a paper tray for pages as they print). And voila, there sitting on your desk is something that looks like a big book.

    · It prints well (albeit slower than many printers, but just the same, everything I’ve printed looked great.

    · It’s “App” based. This means no more worrying about downloading printer drivers. Ever. Just download the HP Smart App to your phone (or computer – more on that below), set up an account, connect via Wifi and you’re ready to print.

    · You can print from anywhere in the world as long as you’re connected to your phone or tablet.

    · It works as an AirPrint printer (Apple iOS speak) which was seamless.

    · You can choose a Skill with Alexa or Google Assistant and just say, “Alexa, ask my printer to print (insert what you want printed - like a grocery list) and it really does.

    · It scans – Well sort of (more on that too).

    The OK, I’m Not So Sure:

    · Setting up with your phone or tablet is really the way to go with this. Setting up your home computer isn’t as easy. We use Windows 10 at home. You go out to the Windows Store, Search for HP, then the Smart App, download it, sign in, then you need to connect the printer. It walks you through finding the printer, but that in itself wasn’t easy or intuitive. It kept finding a printer which wasn’t the right one, but was a Tango and it took a call to HP to figure it out. Now, that was on a Dell PC. This being an HP Printer, my HP Laptop of course connected via the HP Smart App instantly. With a bit of effort, I now have two iPhones, two iPads a Dell PC and a HP Laptop all connected and printing.

    · Scanning: This printer doesn’t “actually” scan. It uses the App on your smart phone or tablet to take a picture of what you want to scan, then you print the “scan” from your phone or computer. I’d prefer to be able to place a document in the printer, have the printer scan it and then send it to my computer or email.

    · This is not a printer for someone who prints a lot. There is no traditional paper tray. You can load about 50 sheets in the top of the machine, but if you do and you think you’ll print from outside the home, that means you can’t use the cool book binder thingy or it won’t print.

    · It’s not a fast printing printer. If you need speed, this isn’t the printer for you.

    · As an addition to this, the print cartridges are small and there are only two, which is kind of good. One for colors, one for black. At the time of setup, you can join the HP cartridge replacement program where you put a credit card on account, based on your anticipated printing volume, and the printer keeps track of how many pages you’ve printed and determines when you’ll need new cartridges, which they send to you, for a fixed monthly fee. I’m not a heavy printer at home, so I am now paying $2.50/month for approximately 50 pages/month. We’ll see how this really works out.

    All in all, I think this is a great first attempt at a totally App controlled, able to work with Digital Assistants (Alexa-Google etc,), print from anywhere in the world which actually looks good printer. If you’d like to have a truly “smart” printer, that takes up very little space, that actually looks good by itself, but even better when cloaked in its book binder case and you don’t have high volume print needs, this is the printer for you. If you have high volume print needs and you need something that prints fast, this isn’t the printer for you.

    Portable Printer Must Have Private Wi-Fi

    Initial guided setup through the HP Smart app was no issue. Plug it in, download the app, connect the printer to Wi-Fi and it is ready to print. The printer even has indicator lights sync'd with the app to guide you through installing the ink and loading paper.

    Build quality is pretty good. It is plastic, but it has a good mix of colors and textures. The fabric cover is also nice. It has a large multicolor indicator LED for status info. As printers go it looks very nice.

    Print quality is on par with other printers. Photo prints on the included sample pack of HP photo paper were of really good quality (although much warmer, with a red tint, when compared to how than they appear on the phone). It also prints reasonably fast for a compact printer. I will also note that the ink cartridge is small, but I wasn’t surprised since this a compact printer.

    My main reason for not giving the printer a higher rating is that it really isn't that much more portable than other printers and has a disadvantage when compared to them. The fabric cover looks nice, but it is not actually attached to the printer and is not really a case for transporting it. There is no place to store the cord nor does the cord come with a simple strap to store it neatly. The printer works great when on a home Wi-Fi network, but it is a pain to use when you are on public Wi-Fi or without Wi-Fi. It has no USB port and Wi-Fi direct was a chore to use on my Android phone and didn't work at all for my Windows 10 computer or iPhone (this a major issue for a portable printer).

    I also have an issue with is the creative marketing that appears on the box and I imagine in some sales literature. To be clear “scanning and copying” remotely via the HP Smart App means the app takes a picture using your phone and sends it to the printer. This is not a scanner, just a plain old printer. Basically any HP printer that uses this app can do this and it is not good for professional scans or copying.

    It is a decent printer, but there are lots of those. It has many compromises for a slight advantage in portability and aesthetics.

    Impressive & Compact Home Printer

    My initial impression was that this is a very minimalist, attractive looking printer. It’s definitely geared for home or home office. The appealing wrap-around linen cover makes it look like a large book of some sort when it’s not in use. The Tango X works best with phones & tablets and not desktop computers. I attempted to print from my desktop without success.

    Before setup, it’s best to download the HP App and create an HP Connected Account. Initial setup didn’t go perfectly according to the instructions, but it was still largely painless. Most print jobs are surprisingly fast and crisp looking, with one exception. Printing a full page black & white photo took so long, I stepped away and had plenty of time to make a cup of coffee. The Smart App is very helpful & will also let you know when paper or ink is low. The only negative: there is no USB port or other way of connecting directly to a device. So, if there is a connectivity issue with WiFi, you’re down for the count. Also, a minor issue, but the little tag with the HP logo on the linen cover has a tendency to catch on print jobs which causes a back-up on the following pages. Overall however, this is a good choice for a home printer.

    This is the best printer I’ve ever bought! It’s compact and takes up very little room, and yet works better than any other one I’ve had!! So happy with everything HP!! It was SO easy to set up and connect to my phone! It prints beautifully, and copying and scanning with my phone by wireless sending couldn’t be more simple!! It’s sleek and attractive for my office too and the cover is a great addition. The only thing I’d change is a cut out for the plug (in the cover) so it can close while still plugged in. But, this is still a fabulous printer!!

    Great color duplex printing and scanning

    I needed a printer that could do relatively fast high volume duplex printing and scanning in COLOR. I was scared this would be a dud because the next closer option was twice the price but I’ve been thrilled with this printer. We were replacing a Canon Maxify and this has similar functionality with a better paper tray (dust doesn’t get inside). So happy with this.

    Why didn't I buy this sooner?

    I absolutely love this printer. I bought it primarily for the duplex printing capability, but it makes everything so easy! The setup to get it working literally consists of just downloading the software and starting the setup app. It found my wireless network and connected to it on its own, and configured everything without much intervention from me. The printing quality is gorgeous, the scanning is about 10x faster than my old all-in-one (which was also an Epson), and all the maintenance procedures are easy with the touch screen explaining step-by-step what to do. I really wish I had purchased it sooner instead of hassling with my old printer as long as I did.

    HEADACHE

    This was our second Epson printer. Our first Epson printer was great. When it finally died I was quick to return to Epson for our next printer. It installed quickly, however this is one huge problem. It will not print any kind of receipt or bank statement. Three calls to Epson support and they confirmed that it will not print receipts. The last Epson would, not this one. I kept thinking there has to be a setting or download to solve this issue. Nope. They had no solution. Support didn't return phone calls either even when that said they would return a phone call with in 24 hours. Really disappointed. I will be looking at different brands of printers. This really is a shame. The last worked great.

    Excellent Print Quality, Economical Ink

    If you tend to print a lot, this could be the printer for you. Epson's Eco Tank series of printers do not have replaceable cartridges, rather "tanks" that you simply refill with ink when needed. A nice feature is you can view the ink level from the front of printer. While having to pour ink into tanks is a slightly more tedious than simply popping in a new cartridge, it's still a pretty simple. A 65 mL bottle of black ink is good for about 4500 pages, and a replacement "kit" consisting of 4 ink bottles (approx. $55) will print up to 7500 pages of color print. There's a little more up front cost than some of the least expensive printers available, however ink costs for the EcoTank ET-2720 are much lower and the print quality is excellent, so over the long run it's a great value unless you rarely use a printer.

    While the main selling point of the Eco Tank ET2720 is that it is cartridge-free and has a much lower ink replacement cost, it's easy to overlook it's just simply an excellent printer. Setup was easy and straightforward, and the whole process including pouring the ink into the reservoirs and installing the software took less than 30 minutes.

    So far I’ve been impressed with the quality of the print. Advertised print resolution is up to 5760x1440. The EcoTank ET-2720 can handle multiple paper types including copy paper, photo paper, and envelopes. Paper feed is in the rear of the printer and the tray will hold about 75 sheets of standard copy paper. Print speed is quick for black and white and reasonable for color.

    The Epson EcoTank ET-2720 is an all-in-one printer, so you can also copy and scan with it. The scan quality is excellent if not a little slow, but scanning or copying is not as simple as it should be. While there's a button on the printer to scan/copy, it only works if it's connected via USB - if connected wireless it requires using the included software. This seems like an oversight to me. It also lacks an ethernet port, so your only connection options are USB or wireless. Another minor complaint is that the LCD display is rather small.

    Overall the EcoTank ET-2720 is a very good printer with excellent print quality, and ink that costs significantly less than its cartridge based competition. If you tend to use the printer often, it's offers an excellent potential for savings. If you rarely print, there's probably other alternatives which may offer a better initial price or a few more features -- and more value as you may not print enough to find value in the significantl reduced cost of replacement ink cartridges.

    Affordable quality printer. EcoTank

    This Epson EcoTank is kind of mid-range economic printer. My first impression was about the weight of the device. It is extremely light! Usually printers are heavier. Priced wisely for moderate daily use. As the name, this is an Eco-Tank printer. The idea is to have an internal tank where the inks are directly filled-in. No hardware parts to replace (cartridge) only add ink. Compared with other inkjet printers, you pay only for the ink you buy. Filling up the printer is very easy! I was afraid to fill up the container with the wrong ink but the bottles are keyed. They only fit in their dedicated colors. Filling up the tanks was very easy! Just plug the refill bottle and wait. The filling progress is very clear to see from the front of the printer. The first time, the printer took about 8 min to get ready and purging the air from the lines. WiFi setup was very easy, just entering the network password. Win10 added it automatically. ChromeOS also had no issues adding the printer. Linux (Ubuntu) driver install was very simple. No issues. Also cloud printing setup worked well. It is a nice feature if you often print from your phone or portable devices (chromebooks as well). Printer is working quietly. Printing speed is good and printing quality is very good.

    I checked the prices for refill bottles, they are really cheap and affordable (talking Epson products).

    Couple things I don't like about this printer:

    1- the paper is top fed. Still, this is a base model...

    2- the LCD screen is very tiny. Again, this is the affordable model...

    Other things are just perfect and good. Very effective printer.

    I would recommend this printer to everyone looking for a high quality printing with cheap ink refilling. A refill that you have to do less frequently.

    Great, unique printer

    The Epson EcoTank printer was very easy to install, with clear well-written instructions. The display is well lit and readable. It's a very different way to fill ink chambers - with bottles of ink, rather than cartridges, but it was very easy to do and clean. There was not a drop of ink spilled filling up the four reservoirs. It claims to save money on ink - won't know that for a while, but seems logical.

    I really like that this printer can run on wireless or with a USB cable. We like to conserve our network since we have poor internet.

    One of the best features is the paper loading, which is quick and simple in the back of the printer, rather than having to open a tray. Very smart design.

    The print quality is very good. I compared it to an HP printer we have and it has the same crisp, clean printing on words and good quality on photos.

Having a printer connected to the WiFi is very important to us, as we have multiple devices that cannot connect to the printer. So wireless just adds an easier dimension for our household. Epson states that you get about 4500 pages of black/8500 pages of color prints. Just after a few HOURS of setting this up and printing a few pages, I’m led to believe that is not possible.

    Pros:

    - easy set up. This is important for me and after owning several printers through the years, setting up has become easier. Just remove the blue tape that holds the hinges and your ready to go. It does come with a CD setup disk but my computer doesn’t have a disc drive so it’s pointless. I’m glad they do offer it stills

    -Ink: you receive 4 bottles of ink where you fill the preinstalled cartridges. This is how the EcoTank system works: you refill through bottles which is supposed to save you 80% compared to cartridges. You place the bottles upside down to the individual color cartridge and wait while it empties out. Once the printer is powered on it then begins to charge the ink for use. Very fascinating way of setting up and to my surprise, there was no mess.

    -quality. You are required to print out a total of three pages to calibrate and align the ink for accurate printing. You then need to match on the screen which one has the best quality. That helps calibrate the ink so you have the best quality. The quality of the test pages was really crisp. After setting up the WiFi, I printed a mixed black/color print out and it looks great for an ink printer. Very nice!

    Cons:

    -Amount of ink used. I set off this review my skepticism on the amount of pages they believe you can print on one cartridge. After printing a total of 4 pages (3 for setting up and 1 actual print), the black ink had already drained a few notches (I provided the photo of this). At this rate I do not believe I will make it to 4500 pages. This is highly disappointing and inaccurate.

    -screen. This is TINY compared to other printers out on the market. The screen measures around 1” x 1”. Yes, it is very small and there does appear to have been enough room to expand that screen size.

    -page feeder. It is a top feed page feeder on the back, very much like your typical home printers. I feel that there could have been design to have a page tray at the bottom to help feed the paper. I’ve felt that too feeders jam more than other methods.

    Overall, the quality of this ink printer is amazing. Easy set up and wireless makes my home office painless. I am disappointed in the design and the inaccuracies of the ink longevity. Hopefully the costs of the refill bottles won’t break the bank.

    Epson eco printer

    Love it! I've printed so much for finals and ink level did not drop as I had expected. Just wish I had gotten the one that prints on both sides so I would save on paper. A tip for you buyers to take into consideration.

    I love this little printer. I have used it for a sublimation printer since getting it and it prints beautifully for my projects.

    Great printer

    This is the first Epson printer I have ever had. It was a lot easier to set up than the previous printers I’ve had. Once out of the box, I plugged it in and loaded the 6 ink cartridges. It took about 7 minutes to initialize and then I needed to load paper for the alignment and adjustment of the print. There are 2 paper trays, one is for smaller photo paper and the other is for up to 11x17 size paper. You load it with the printable side face down. It took some trial and error for me to figure out loading the paper but once I got it, it was easy. There is a place to also load paper in the back of the printer but I have not utilized this yet. You need at least 4 sheets of paper for the alignment and adjustment. For example, it prints out 9 lines of squares and you pick the ones with the least amount of lines from each line. After completing the set up it was a breeze to use. I was able to use the scan and print and print from my phone easily. Setting up the Wifi was simple and the touch screen it great because you don’t have to use the pads of your finger like a mobile phone. I love this because I have fat fingers and like being able to use my fingernails to navigate.

    Pros: easy to set up in about 12-15 minutes. Print quality is great. Set up to Alexa to print.

    Cons: a little loud but bearable. There is a quiet mode but prints slower. The print tray doesn’t hold a lot of paper for the size of the printer. I have included 3 pictures: Original is on top, a scanned of original is on the left and the one on the right is a picture taken of the original with my phone and printed out).

    Superb high-tech printer.

    First of, I will point out that I have used many different brands of printers. I'm well aware of each ones most strongest features and their pros and cons. With that said, I tend to lean more on the Epson brand because they seem more durable, are intuitive and look really nice.

    In today's world of high tech we need to be able to print out documents and pictures in great quality. We get used to seeing our nice screens so it's only fair that our printed images look as best as they can. This Epson XP-970 does not disappoint! I have 2 other printers that I use almost daily and they don't compare to the amazing pictures this Epson printer prints out.

    It has a great overall small footprint and prints pictures a little extra bigger (11" x 17") than the regular size printers. It has a 4.3" touchscreen and you can use it independently without any device or PC. It works from any device and on both Android and iOS without a glitch! The tray opens up itself when you print out something for the first time. The screen also open and flips up in very cool, and high tech way!

    You can even print images on CD's! I love to make home movies or slide shows and give them out to friends and family. This feature was really big back in the early 2000's and I had a computer tower that did that until it broke down. So to see this on a favorite printer of mine, well it's cool. It is considered a "small in one" and has all theses features;

    Wireless 2.4 & 5 antennas, Ethernet, Wide Format, Print/Copy, Scan, 6-color inks

    ISO Print Speed†: Black: 8.5 ISO ppm; Color: 8.0 ISO ppm.

    It has an SD card reader and 1 USB port. It also has Voice Activated Printing with Alexa and Google. I used it to print my shopping list! Wow! The setup was super easy! Place it somewhere, plug it in and follow on-screen instructions. My kids use it for High School and College and they are amazed on the quality of the print. It's very neat and there's no runoffs or blurring.

    It comes with a manual in a few different languages and an install CD for PC. You can always download the Creative apps on any device and it gives you the option to do pretty much anything you'd want to do on a printer with all these options.

    I'm extremely happy with this printer and the price is definitely fair for all the features and great quality you get out of it. This is a review for the Epson Expression Photo XP-970 Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Colorful, vibrant photos

    When the printer was delivered, the first thing I noticed was the width. It's pretty impressive. Definitely wider than any printer I've had before. According to the box, that is so it can print great pictures. The box didn't lie. No more one hour photo kiosks for me. The photos print with professional quality and the 6 (yes, six) ink colors let you see your photos almost exactly as you took them. With regular printers that have black, blue, yellow, and red, your photos are never as vibrant as they are on your camera or phone. Epson has solved this problem with the addition of the 2 extra colors.

    This printer was easy to unpack and set up. Word of advice: The ink cartridges have caps on them that you have to take off. Don't get your fingers in them. They a small amount of ink on them and I got a blue finger tip. Epson provides a plastic bag for you to put the ink caps in. You need to keep the caps and put them back on the cartridges when they are empty. Once you install the ink, the printer runs its initialization program. The touch screen LCD display tells you this takes about 7 minutes, and it did take right at 7 minutes for me.

    Set up is pretty straight forward. You load the paper and then run the print alignment test. After that is complete, run the cd on your computer to complete the process.

    There are multiple places to load paper. I have loaded regular printer paper and 4x6 glossy photo paper. The first item I printed was a 4x6 photo of my grandson and....I wasted a sheet of 4x6 glossy paper. I didn't see anything to tell me if the paper should be glossy side up or down, so I put it up. That was the wrong thing. The ink pooled on the wrong side of the paper and it was quite a mess. Make sure you put the glossy side DOWN in the tray.

    The next item I printed was a 3 page Excel document. I decided to try the 2 sided printing. I did not have to put the paper back in to print on the back. It printed both sides before spitting the paper out. The document had several color bands and I was worried about bleed through, but it wasn't an issue.

    The scanner/copier works very well and scanned the pictures and documents to my computer with no issues. The copied documents looked just like the originals.

    Although I haven't tried them yet, this printer has even more bells and whistles. You can print from your phone, a memory card, a CD/DVD, and even from a different location.

    While I was writing this review, I printed 25 two-sided copies for a club I belong to and they printed quickly and the ink was dry when I took them off the tray.

    In summary, the Epson XP-970 prints fantastic photos (as long as you have the paper loaded correctly) and great documents. This printer is good for people who are looking for their first printer and for people who have been printing for years.

    The pictures show the scanner tray, the touch screen LCD display on start up and during printing, and the 2 sided document I printed.

    Great Little All in One Printer !!!

    I’m impressed with the Epson XP-970 Wireless All-In-One Inkjet Printer - Black. I have had it for about a week now and I have used just about all of its features. I work from home sometime and am not a high capacity user so this printer has been an excellent option for me. If you are looking for a great printer with high intensity output, then I would highly depend on the Epson XP-970.

    The Epson XP 470 is a substantial upgrade from the popular Epson series of printers. The setup was easy and flawless and hardly had I to refer to any documents provided. Time taken to perform the setup was hardly 20-25 minutes and it was ready for printing and scanning. Installation of the cartridges were also easy and without any mess. Product size is really compact and weight is reasonable.

    There is a distinct improvement in print quality and speed compared to my existing Printer which is another brand. Competition is rising up for this class of printer, but the XP 970 is a very good 17" desktop printer that every photographer ought to consider. Copying is fast. Scanning is faster too...and 600 dpi gives the enough clarity that is needed for me however the maximum resolution is 4800dpi. It prints a 4X6 photo in about 10 seconds. Additionally there are multiple ways you can print wirelessly (Epson Connect, Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print) and you can scan to cloud. Bring able to control the printer from Alexa and Google home is a plus point.

    Additionally it comes with SD card slot and it does support Memory Stick Duo and CompactFlash card through USB 2.0 with the ability to connect to internet using Ethernet or Wi-Fi options. Auto Photo Correction with advanced face detection as well as red-eye removal and photo restoration capabilities are definitely few add-ons a photographer may be interested in. Overall, this is a great printer for personal and home use. I feel this is definitely worth the money. Nevertheless to say that printers are prone to problems anytime. My take is to spend a few more dollars have the peace of mind for few years.

    Great photo printer

    The Epson Expression Photo XP-970 Small-In-One Inkjet printer is an amazing printer for printing photos at home. The print quality is much better than any other photo printer I have ever used. The print time is fairly quick. I like that you can print different sizes from 4x6 borderless photos to 11x17 printing all wirelessly. Another great feature is that you can use voice printing with either Amazon Alexa or Google assistant, so no need to be tethered to your computer to print.

    There is also the option to print from a SD memory card or memory stick. The touchscreen display is user friendly and you also have built in software that allows you to adjust your photos, red removal and restoration tools for old or damaged photos, which is amazing. Another really cool feature is it also has the ability to print images onto CDs or DVDs when you want to create a custom gift for family and friends.

    Set-up was really simple and fast right out of the box it took no more than 15-20 mins and I was ready to print. This is a review for the Epson Expression Photo XP-970 Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Great Printer!

    I think the Epson Expression Photo XP-970 Printer was very easy to set up. People who don’t do well with technology wouldn’t have a problem setting this up at all. I don’t have much experience in setting printers up, but it was extremely easy. The printer pretty much walks you through the steps one step at a time. It would be a great printer for photos or even for everyday documents. The fact that it is voice-activated is extremely convenient. It has three different trays for different sized paper and the screen lifts up also. The ink comes with covers that come off to place the ink trays in but then they can go right back on! The printer was also packed neatly and safe inside the box. The machine itself looks very slick. I would highly recommend it to family and friends.

    Don’t be afraid to push a little harder on the ink trays to put it in! I was a little worried putting the ink in because of how hard I had to push just to get it to click in. I also didn’t like how it was more of a chore to put the paper in the printer. You had to move things over, and it isn’t very convenient. All in all, I think it is a very slick printer and is great for people into photography like I am. I would highly recommend it.

    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

    HP OfficeJet Pro 9025e

    This purchase (OfficeJet Pro) fulfills my needs for quality printing and scanning. The blue-tooth technology not only provides ease of use but the convenience of printing from multiple devices.

    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!

    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.

    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 ending need for expensive ink cartridges and they were extremely frustrating because it seemed they were always out of ink whenever I wanted to print an important document. But I gave it one more chance and bought an ink jet printer (from another manufacturer) with refillable ink tanks. Since that time, I have printed thousands of pages without adding any ink and my opinion of ink jet printers has completely changed.

    The HP Smart Tank 7001 All-in-One is one of HP’s entries into refillable ink tank printers. It has an automatic document feeder and is capable of printing up to 15ppm black and 9ppm color. It comes with enough ink to print 8000 pages color or 6000 black pages.

    In actual operation, the 7001 was fast and quiet and printed well over wifi from my PC, tablet, Iphone, and Android phone. The were no paper jams and after printing a couple hundred pages, I could not see any reduction in the ink level.

    If you are looking for an ink jet printer from a dependable company that in the long run will be more economical and much less frustrating than a cartridge based printer, I would highly recommend the HP7001.

    Excellent money saving color printer

    HP has been making high-quality printers for decades. They used to work under the premise of selling the printer at a loss and making up for it with overpriced cartridges. Those days are over. HP Smart Tank printers use large volume ink bottles. The black, yellow, magenta and cyan inks are poured into tanks on the printer. The printer holds 70ml (2.36oz) of each of the 3 colors and 135ml (4.56oz) of black ink. Full bottles, not trial or sample size bottles, are included with the printer. That’s enough ink to print 6000 black & white pages and 8000 color pages. Replacing all 4 inks costs about the same as a single ink cartridge, but gives you a ton of printing. It can print up to 15 pages per minute in black and up to 9 pages per minute in color. One thing unique to the printer, compared to others that I have owned, is that the printer has removable/replaceable printheads. That makes it easy should you have to clean them or replace them.

    What else is there to like about the printer? Plenty. Setup is simple using your smartphone, tablet, or computer. You can print to the unit via 2.4/5G dual-band Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth, and USB cable. You can easily print from your Mac, PC, tablet, and smartphone. It has automatic duplex printing so you can print on both sides of the page, reducing paper usage. It offers borderless printing and has a 100 sheet output tray, and the input tray can hold up to 250 sheets or 30 card stock pages. It can print images up to 4800x1200dpi with input images of up to 1200dpi. I’ve printed numerous photos and find it produces very photorealistic prints. They look more realistic to me than those produced by my Brother and Epson inkjet printers, which tend to over saturate the images.

    It has a nice single-page, color scanner and can scan at up to 1200x1200 dpi and 256 levels of gray. You can make copies, reducing/enlarging from 40% to 400%. It features a nice id copy feature allowing you to copy both sides of a card and print them on a single page. Instead of manually having to calibrate the printheads, it prints a calibration page which it then scans and adjusts automatically.

    What don’t I like about it? In this day and age, LCD touch displays are very common features on printers. This printer uses numerous physical buttons and a small 2 line monochrome LCD display. Instead of relying on codes and pictures, it would have been nice to have a larger informational display with touch capabilities and color. I won’t hold that against it too much, since I love everything else about the printer.

    Overall, it’s a great printer, will save you a lot of money on ink, and prints great.

    Great long term value

    HP makes some good stuff. I've got several laptops and printers made by them but I'm very put off by them forcing you to buy their expensive printer cartridges and toner cartridges. I do buy generic but that comes with a lot of trade offs. I do think the tank system is a much more economical solution. A set of ink refill bottles are only a bit over $60 and will yield about 8000 printed pages compared to a set of standard printer cartridges that can run a bit more and yield about 300 printed pages.

    Setup was a breeze with a smartphone app. The app walks you through each step, helps you connect the printer to your wifi and instructs you on how to fill the ink reservoirs and install the print heads. I was up and running and connected to my wifi in about 15 minutes.

    While I would have preferred a document feed scanner this scanner bed model will suit most of my needs. The app even instructs you during setup how to calibrate the scanner. Easy stuff.

    The beauty of this printer is that you have a clear visual on how much ink you have in each of the reservoirs. You can easily judge when you need to purchase one or many of the ink refill bottles. Heck, the ink that comes with the printer fills each of the reservoirs unlike most cartridge printers being supplied with "sample" cartridges that will get you a fraction of printed pages as compared to the standard cartridges. I'm anxious to see how long in printer shelf life is on the tank ink/print heads.

    Prints are of of very good quality, photos print crisp. This will be a good all around utility printer when I don't need my color laser.

    I'm not sure about the price point of $399 for this printer though. It might be a better value a bit cheaper... maybe $50 to $100 off as there are plenty of cartridge all in one printers out there that are cheap enough to justify the cost of cartridges but I can see this as a good long term investment.

    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 ending need for expensive ink cartridges and they were extremely frustrating because it seemed they were always out of ink whenever I wanted to print an important document. But I gave it one more chance and bought an ink jet printer (from another manufacturer) with refillable ink tanks. Since that time, I have printed thousands of pages without adding any ink and my opinion of ink jet printers has completely changed.

    The HP Smart Tank 7001 All-in-One is one of HP’s entries into refillable ink tank printers. It has an automatic document feeder and is capable of printing up to 15ppm black and 9ppm color. It comes with enough ink to print 8000 pages color or 6000 black pages.

    In actual operation, the 7001 was fast and quiet and printed well over wifi from my PC, tablet, Iphone, and Android phone. The were no paper jams and after printing a couple hundred pages, I could not see any reduction in the ink level.

    If you are looking for an ink jet printer from a dependable company that in the long run will be more economical and much less frustrating than a cartridge based printer, I would highly recommend the HP7001.

    Excellent money saving color printer

    HP has been making high-quality printers for decades. They used to work under the premise of selling the printer at a loss and making up for it with overpriced cartridges. Those days are over. HP Smart Tank printers use large volume ink bottles. The black, yellow, magenta and cyan inks are poured into tanks on the printer. The printer holds 70ml (2.36oz) of each of the 3 colors and 135ml (4.56oz) of black ink. Full bottles, not trial or sample size bottles, are included with the printer. That’s enough ink to print 6000 black & white pages and 8000 color pages. Replacing all 4 inks costs about the same as a single ink cartridge, but gives you a ton of printing. It can print up to 15 pages per minute in black and up to 9 pages per minute in color. One thing unique to the printer, compared to others that I have owned, is that the printer has removable/replaceable printheads. That makes it easy should you have to clean them or replace them.

    What else is there to like about the printer? Plenty. Setup is simple using your smartphone, tablet, or computer. You can print to the unit via 2.4/5G dual-band Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth, and USB cable. You can easily print from your Mac, PC, tablet, and smartphone. It has automatic duplex printing so you can print on both sides of the page, reducing paper usage. It offers borderless printing and has a 100 sheet output tray, and the input tray can hold up to 250 sheets or 30 card stock pages. It can print images up to 4800x1200dpi with input images of up to 1200dpi. I’ve printed numerous photos and find it produces very photorealistic prints. They look more realistic to me than those produced by my Brother and Epson inkjet printers, which tend to over saturate the images.

    It has a nice single-page, color scanner and can scan at up to 1200x1200 dpi and 256 levels of gray. You can make copies, reducing/enlarging from 40% to 400%. It features a nice id copy feature allowing you to copy both sides of a card and print them on a single page. Instead of manually having to calibrate the printheads, it prints a calibration page which it then scans and adjusts automatically.

    What don’t I like about it? In this day and age, LCD touch displays are very common features on printers. This printer uses numerous physical buttons and a small 2 line monochrome LCD display. Instead of relying on codes and pictures, it would have been nice to have a larger informational display with touch capabilities and color. I won’t hold that against it too much, since I love everything else about the printer.

    Overall, it’s a great printer, will save you a lot of money on ink, and prints great.

    Great long term value

    HP makes some good stuff. I've got several laptops and printers made by them but I'm very put off by them forcing you to buy their expensive printer cartridges and toner cartridges. I do buy generic but that comes with a lot of trade offs. I do think the tank system is a much more economical solution. A set of ink refill bottles are only a bit over $60 and will yield about 8000 printed pages compared to a set of standard printer cartridges that can run a bit more and yield about 300 printed pages.

    Setup was a breeze with a smartphone app. The app walks you through each step, helps you connect the printer to your wifi and instructs you on how to fill the ink reservoirs and install the print heads. I was up and running and connected to my wifi in about 15 minutes.

    While I would have preferred a document feed scanner this scanner bed model will suit most of my needs. The app even instructs you during setup how to calibrate the scanner. Easy stuff.

    The beauty of this printer is that you have a clear visual on how much ink you have in each of the reservoirs. You can easily judge when you need to purchase one or many of the ink refill bottles. Heck, the ink that comes with the printer fills each of the reservoirs unlike most cartridge printers being supplied with "sample" cartridges that will get you a fraction of printed pages as compared to the standard cartridges. I'm anxious to see how long in printer shelf life is on the tank ink/print heads.

    Prints are of of very good quality, photos print crisp. This will be a good all around utility printer when I don't need my color laser.

    I'm not sure about the price point of $399 for this printer though. It might be a better value a bit cheaper... maybe $50 to $100 off as there are plenty of cartridge all in one printers out there that are cheap enough to justify the cost of cartridges but I can see this as a good long term investment.
