Buy this printer from a different vendor.
Great printer. My new ET3850 malfunctioned at wk#6. Vendor told me to return to them but refused to provide paid return label. Amazon CS got involved —vendor THEN changed story and said they could do nothing since my problem happened AFTER 30 days. Sadly, Amazon’s “A-Z Guarantee” was promised to me ...

One Month in and very please so far
So I yell at my printers a lot. Usually because the ink is low, or it is off line for some reason. My old printers, always a pain finding ink and if you did find it, you might as well buy a new printer for the cost of the ink. My Epson Eco Tank is a game changer for me. Very easy to set up and super...

The 6 Best AirPrint Printers - Spring 2022
The successor to the Epson EcoTank ET-3760, it provides exceptionally high page yields that are even better than the ET-3760. Also, since it uses the same ink bottles, the cost-per-print is a bit cheaper, and you can use the same bottles if you're looking to upgrade to the newer model. It's also one of the best printers for iPad and iPhone printing we've tested, thanks to its great array of connectivity options

A reliable ink-tank (refillable) printer?
Epson's higher-end EcoTank printers have replaceable waste cartridges ("maintenance boxes"), so you don't end up having to call for service or replace the whole machine due to internal ink pads filling up. Be sure to check the specifications to make sure this is the case, as less expensive models don't have this feature. At the print volumes you mentioned, your best bet would be the EcoTank ET-3850. This has a replaceable maintenance box (part T04D100) and an ADF, albeit only with single-sided scanning.

Home office EcoTank with few features but plenty of ink
Meet the Epson EcoTank ET-3850, the middle model in a new line of all-in-one printers (opens in new tab) aimed at the home office. It’s a three-in-one device with an ADF (automatic document feeder) and refillable ink tanks instead of cartridges. 
At around $400 (about £360, AU$680) ...

great while it lasted
Bought this in June 2021. April 2022 had my first paper jam. This resulted in a “fatal error”! Can’t be fixed. After repeated calls to Epson (issue after issue on their end) they are sending a refurbished replacement. They require you to put a “temporary” payment on your credit card for $180 (in cas...

Great Classroom Printer
I purchased this printer for my classroom in 2018. My Students and myself use it daily. I teach 4th graders and even they did not break any part of the printer (paper tray, document feeder, hinge's, etc.).
Looking at the usage history page:
First print was 10/23/2018 (3 1/2 years ago).
Total nu...

Worth Buying?
Very easy to get the printer up and going. I used the instructions on my phone, and all went smooth! Received 2 extra bottles of black as well. Thought I would also receive extra bottles of the colors but guess not. I have heard that you need to at least print a page or two every day or every other ...

Nice and easy
So far so good. Just received today and set up and functioning. I’m surprised how easy the set up was for printing and scanning. This is replacing my old Samsung, which was very difficult to set up the scanner. After moving, I was never able to get the scanner connected to my computer. Not a problem...
