Epson WorkForce WF-7520 All-in-One Printer
New addition to long line of great printers
Having worn out my previous Epson after much use I decided to purchase the WF-7520. It appears to be as I had hoped. The over sized paper and duplex printing is great for many home projects. Photos look great also. This is my 6th Epson.

Excellent quality and speed
Have been using this printer for 2-3 months and am very pleased with it. I'm a freelance graphic designer, and the quality of the printing is superb. Once in a while it will pull two pieces of paper through at once, but other than that, the operation has been very smooth.
The only thing I'm not particularly happy about is the borderless printing feature. One, it won't allow duplexed borderless printing. Two, two of the sides print all the way to the edge, the other two don't.
I also wish it had a manual feed. These two things are the only reasons I didn't give it five stars, but 4.75 stars would be more like it.
One really neat feature that I did not expect is that when you run out of black ink, it gives you the option of compensating with the CMY so you can still print. Awesome!
Overall, I'm thrilled with the printer.

I am real picky on my scanner/printer. Found an ad in local newspaper and started looking at epson,took 4 or 5 weeks to make up my mind. What convinced me was it would increase or decrease from 5% to 400%.

Will not print 12x18
Software drivers will not allow us to print 12x18. This is the only reason we bought the machine in the first place. We can jerry-rig it to work briefly, but it breaks for no apparent reason.
We are architects who want a printer that will do half size of our standard 24x36in. drawings. Why is this hard?

Couldn't Ask for More
I got my WF-7520 in May of this year and have been using it heavily ever since, volunteering for a local historical group that is creating a large archive of documents relating to the history of the community. The WF-7520 has met or exceeded my expectations in every way and offers extraordinary value for its price.
My work for the archive project has mostly involved scanning many hundreds of documents, from complete newspaper sections, reports, and photographs to scraps of handwritten notes. I estimate that I have made as many as 10,000 scans with the WF-7520. I expect that I have made more scans by far in ten weeks than the WF-7520 was ever designed and built to do in its entire lifetime.
Ultimately, the scanner failed, most likely mechanically. Scanning using the document feeder still works fine (for these scans, the documents move over the stationary scan arm), but scans requiring the scanner arm to travel across the document table are now incomplete. After e-mailing Epson support about the problem and talking with a support technician who had me run some diagnostic tests, Epson has sent me a replacement.
I would not hesitate to buy Epson again.

All around printer
Scans well and print quality good. Excellent printer for home. I use a Epsom photo printer for my photos. This company has a great product line.
Support is excellent.

So far it has been a great printer. Read a lot of reviews about how it uses a lot of ink, but so far have not had to replace any cartridges since my purchase. Seems to be great quality. Time will tell...

Full Features DO NOT WORK with Windows 8.1 Driver
The Windows 8.1 driver for this printer does not fully support it's features. Most significantly you can not choose paper trays or print 11x17 but there are many other features present in the Windows 7 driver that are missing. Scanning works ok though. This is very disappointing and severely limits the products use.

"OK" 2 Tray All-In-One Unit
Generally a nice unit. Confusing directions. My bottom tray doesn't fit quite right and 'snap in place' properly; I'm sure it's only a matter of time before some piece breaks. Very disappointed that it doesn't 'recognize' originals sizes when scanning, copying or printing sent from the computer, or even landscape versus portrait when copying; so there is a LOT of time 'making selections' whenever you do anything except print a simple 8 x 11 sheet.
