Epson WorkForce WF-7510 All-in-One Printer
Wide Format Winner
I work with graphic representations of statistical information - about 50% using 11 X 17 paper. Large size output X small budget = various unsatisfactory solutions - until now.
I have only been using the WF-7510 All-in-One for a week but I am very impressed. Set up was easy. The instructions very clear. Everything worked. The product is excellent. Time wasted cut 75%. For the price this all-in-one has no rival.
It is noisy, but music to my ears!

Product came with very little almost no color ink in factory first cartridges....machine quit working completely until I went and bought replacements, that happened 2nd day. I complained to Office Max and they gave me free replacements a week later, or I would have returned machine...thinking it to be defective. I would recommend to others for the price value. I thought it was less than I expected to pay. Prints very well and fast 11 x17 sheets the whole reason I purchased it. Problem with scanning 11 x17 sheets...only covers about 75% of printed material

Epson has no schematics or manuals online so service and repair are hard.
I disloged a part trying to change ink, no picture was provided on how to change ink, I had the tools but no schematic of where to put the part back.
I took a picture after each screw as I disassembled, a hemostat, bent nose needle nose pliers and a screwdriver and it works fine, two hours later.
Yes I know what a vom meter is, I have two.

I have had this printer (purchased refurbished from Epson) for about 4 months now. I bought it mainly for its large 11"x17" flatbed scanner (documenting work printed on legal-sized paper, saving the kids' large art projects or working on a scanned copy of my own art projects, etc.). My experience with the printer so far:
Dyspeptic: It will randomly spit out paper after print jobs (so a lot of 1-page print jobs end up with 2 pages popping out) and/or when I shut it down. And I do mean random: I never know if it'll spit out a piece of paper when I shut it down for the night. (Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't.)
Unreliable in the up-take: Sometimes the paper loads up just fine, sometimes it doesn't. To fix the "paper jam," I have to pull out the paper tray 2, 3, 4 times to restraighten the paper in the tray (over and over) and see if it'll please, please feed through this time. Eventually it does.
I doubt it's a matter of user-failure (though that's always a possibility). Before and after purchasing I looked up all the common problems related to this issue. Maybe I got a dud for a refurb, but it's temperamental at best.
Sometimes a load of paper will print out several print jobs over several days with no problems. Sometimes a load put in the exact same way will have a problem with every print. Sometimes the load of paper that was printing fine for a few jobs or even days will suddenly have a "paper jam" (uptake) problem and need reloading.
One interesting thing: Once it starts to print okay, it usually continues to print subsequent jobs okay for a time. Once I shut it down and turn it back on, the paper jam issue starts up again. This is one reason why I know it's not a user-problem with loading, as there is no change with the paper in the tray (i.e., I don't touch it) from the time it is working and shut down on one day, and the time it is started up again for another job on the next.
Double-sided printing: Double-sided printing is a manual job (taking out the job when one side is finished, then opening the paper tray and reinserting those pages so they can be printed on the other side). Aside from annoyance inherent in manual double-sided printing, the uptake problem exacerbates this kind of printing, since I have to open and restock the tray for the other side of the double-sided print. If just one page fails to feed properly (which happens often), that messes up the rest of the print job. I have had a lot of paper wasted because of this.
Color settings are "grade-inflated": The default "good" setting should really be named the economy setting (who knows how bad the actual "economy" setting is), as the "good" setting prints with visible regular striations/striped gaps in its attempt to save ink. I have to bump it up to the "fine" setting just to get normal looking printing.
Even when I bump it up to "quality" (the highest setting), the color isn't as rich nor the blacks as black as what I would get from my 10+year-old Windows XP compatible HP printer. On this Epson on the "quality" setting, a solid black comes out more as a grey.
In addition to selecting the "quality" setting for printing, I had to put the paper type on "premium photo paper glossy" to get the same quality of results as from my old HP printer. At least with these settings, I was able to match the quality of my old printer, so that's good.
Loud: It's fairly loud when it prints. That's not a big issue (except when I printed at night time and it would wake a barely-asleep infant or toddler, which is a little annoying --- I don't make that mistake any more). I'm just noting it for those interested in whether it is quiet or loud.
When I do print with the settings adjusted (always higher than the default), and when the paper does take up properly, the results have been very good. And the print speed is good. So I'm happy there.
Scanner not yet tested: I hope the scanner works well, I just haven't had the time to get to the projects I had in mind for using it yet.
If this printer reliably took up paper, it would be great. I could ignore the other issues (randomly spitting out extra paper after jobs or when shutting down, subpar color settings that need to be turned up to maximum, loudness during printing).
In sum, 3 stars for a printer that turns out good product when it works, but I almost always have to tend to an issue for every print job (annoyingly high maintenance because of its temperamental nature).

Epson Workforce 7510 All-in-one printer
It was easy to figure out how to set it up. I had to check the online user's manual for a couple things but then WOW -- absolutely beautiful images. I'm very happy with this awesome printer.

Great machine, great value
I bought this wide-format all-in-one printer a few months ago. Very good quaility printing, both for business and art/photos. And, at a good price. It is quite noisy when printing and the print options are a bit complicated, but would recommend this printer.

Never worked out of the box. Several hours were wasted the first week trying to resolve the problems. Then it was pushed to a corner were it has gathered dust since.

Prints well, BUT
As far as printing goes it does well. As far a switching between 8-1/2 by 11' to 11' by 17" is
quick & easy. If I do anything with my wireless network, the Printer goes brain dead on me & I have to call tech support which usually involves a uninstall followed by a re-install to get it back on line. There is noting in the manual on how to do this.

Its got a lot
This machine almost does everything I want it to.
It copies, scans and prints with high quality and speed. One reason I got it aside from the integrated features is the large scanning bed that can scan 11 x 17 documents. I am disappointed with the fax feature. The auto receive feature does not work. Everytime the regular phone rings it sets off the fax and I'm not sure the manual fax works in that I have had a lot of failures on the receive side. I have tried a number of fixes, none of which worked. I noticed way down in the manual small print it says that the fax feature may not work properly with certain phone systems, one of which is mine.
