Product Reviews
Epson WorkForce EcoTank ET-16500 Ink-Jet Color Multifunction Printer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast & great print quality I love the idea of ink bottles instead of cartridges - way cheaper & longer lasting
Date published: 2017-06-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply put: "Home office printing complete!" I bought this printer mainly because I am tired of the constant, costly, irritating and aggravating need to purchase new (half filled) cartridges. I also purchase it for the versatility to print on the widest range of paper (or card) types or sizes that any Epson printer has to offer. Finally I purchased it because it is built with all the features (and more) that I can imagine anyone could want or need from a home / office printer. Simply put: The Epson ET-16500 is "Home office printing complete!"

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Printer, Poor Price Worked great out of the book, But the one thing I do not like about this line is they jacked up the cost of the ECO units intentionally way beyond cost for the fact they know they are not gonna make sales on INK. Which is why people go other buying ink from third parties to begin with. I would rather buy a cheaper unit where I have to buy third party ink and save instead of buying another one of these at this price. You would make more sales if your dropped the price on the unit and sold your ink a cheaper but in bulk. That's my thoughts, but hey, I only am the CFO of a F-500.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good I bought this at the beginning of February. I like the scan to cloud feature. My only issue is when I insert my memory key to print something the printer doesn't recognize anything in PDF format. It only sees jpg or tiff. Other than that I have no issues with it so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Printer Wow this was the easiest printer I ever set up!!! Today is my first day using it. The reviews were great in helping me decide spending the money for this printer. Very happy and worth the money! Some reviews indicated problems I have had none so far

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great features,, wifi issues bought this for small business of 15 people..for the wide format and new ink tanks. So far so good, except when connected to wifi some computers cant find it. I either have to reset the printer or disconnect and reconnect to wi fi which is annoying. We will be plugging it into the networks ethernet from now on. Wifi is not reliable with this device. Otherwise its an excellent product with lots of features,,the email from anywhere print feature is cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far So Great! I have been using this printer for about 3 weeks now and so far I am very impressed. I was looking for a wide format color printer that used in reservoirs like many plotters and commercial printers have. Needless to say when I stumbled across the ET-16500 I was sold. Despite the high upfront cost, In the long run the savings in ink and dried out cartridges will pay off. Plus the printer is feature rich, offering many different options to connect to the device as well as network support to local storage devices plugged into the printer. One issue I had has been the sensitivity of the paper cartridges when loading new paper. You have to make sure it is seated properly and that the paper in the tray is also seated properly or you will get an error. This is not a bad thing as I assume it leads to a more jam free printing experience. Pay attention to the weight of the paper being used, as it has a 24lb rating. This is especially true when using the scanner document feeder. When in doubt us the flatbed instead. For my setup I have 4x6 glossy in tray 1 and letter in tray 2. Photo printing is amazing, this is why I went with an inkjet over laser. I have printed pictures from my PC, iPhone, Android with no issues. I would recommend this printer it is worth the upfront cost with the potential savings with the inexpensive bulk ink and quality components you will not find in a cheaper consumer printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great This printer has been a fantastic asset for my small press! The 13”x19” capacity lets me print out full two page spread mockups of photo-intensive cookbooks for proofing and layout critique. Holding a page that size in your hand is a completely different experience from editing on a screen. As a publisher, I regularly print hundreds of pages for both text editing and mockups. In addition to the gorgeous large capacity printing (which I LOVE) the two paper trays let me switch back and forth from standard size printing to large scale without having to change paper. As someone who regularly prints book length manuscripts, I’m also really happy with the 500 sheet high capacity tray.Setup was a breeze. In the time it took to download the drivers I’d filled the ink and paper. From there it needed about 20 minutes to charge the ink tanks for the first time. Meanwhile, it connected to my WiFi with no problem. I’m able to print big manuscript length projects from my laptop or desktop as well as smaller projects and downloaded documents from my phone or iPad. I wish more tech in my life was able to talk to all my computers and mobile devices as seamlessly as this printer. The best part for me is the incredible ink capacity. I’ve printed hundreds of large format, full color, photo intensive pages and it’s not even close to running out. If you have high volume printing needs, the Eco-Tank design is a great alternative to changing high capacity ink cartridges on a weekly basis. I really like this machine. The large scale printing and wireless connectivity to all my devices solves so many small needs in one admittedly big package. (I cleared a 2.5 foot by 3 foot space on a sturdy table for it.) Full disclosure: This is a review for the Epson ET-16500 EcoTank that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.
