Black and color two-sided print speeds are determined in two-sided mode in accordance with ISO/IEC 24734. Actual print times will vary based on system configuration, software, and page complexity.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Being that this is a printer ONLY (not a scanner, fax, or copier), Epson took the time to make it the most user friendly printer I've seen in awhile. The entire top opens up for easy access for ink maintenance and/or paper jams. The power button, Wifi button, cancel button, etc are all on the top of the unit and clearly marked. The lights are bright (but not too bright) and easy to read. One note: The newer electronics have the blue led lights, but this printer's lights are green and orange...not sure if this matters to you or not, but some people like to have them all the same.
The paper is enclosed into a paper tray that is very nice--it keeps the paper straight and clean, with no way to come askew or jam. The paper tray for your printed pages is right in front, and is a typical pull out open ledge.
Set up was a bit tricky for me, since I have a merged home network, and I wanted to try to set it up wirelessly. Even by Epson's own admission, setting it up wirelessly (without using the USB cord) wasn't recommended, and I can see why. I played with it for 1/2 an hour before finally submitting to the recommended USB setup, which took seconds. Software installation was seamless, and completely automatic.
I had tried to connect it to one of my merged networks that has WPS, and it worked perfectly without using the USB cord, however, I needed to link it with the second network which is WEP and has no WPS, so that is what required me to use the USB. If you have a simple WPS router, it will work GREAT with the wireless setup.
Installing the ink is easy and CLEAN. No smudged fingers. That was very nice. It takes a few minutes for the machine to prep the ink cartridges, but it saves you from having to have messy cartridges. I like that!
There was no process for aligning the cartridges or wasting paper with color tests. The test page was optional and wasn't full of graphics so you don't waste a bunch of ink on a required set up step.
I was able to print from all 4 computers in the house, after installing the software and drivers on each computer. It makes very nice looking prints, although the time to print is not as quick as other printers. It is great that it will do two-sided printing, and when you're printing out some long boring document, you can save paper.
The print quality was very nice. Deep blacks and bright colors. Usually I use an HP photosmart printer and the color on this Epson is better, with more contrast and depth to the color prints. The clarity of the prints is very nice--crisp and clear. It also prints photos--which look marvelous, with nice deep color saturation.
So, if you're looking for a basic printer, without bells and whistles and extras like the scanner/fax/copier (which most peoplel don't use anyway), created by a quality manufacturer that's been around a long time, who has put some effort and quality in a specialty product, this printer is a great choice.
They candidly admit they have a problem with WiFi on this printer. It seems related to Win 7, but it may not be. One tech told me it was an Epson Software problem.
The printer worked fine when cabled and connected to my computer, but the software driver for WiFi printing would not install.
The fix had to do with resetting the I.P. address. I wish I understood just what we did, but the printer now works fine, wirelessly.
Do not buy this printer unless you are fairly computer literateand have the time and patience to work through the WiFi issues.
Printer gets a 3 star, Epson tech support staff 12 stars.
Some of the reasons I bought this printer was that it starts up right away unlike the Canons that do a song & dance routine before it starts printing. Another reason 3rd party ink were available for this printer which BTW is very good ink (EnviroInks). So rather than give somebody the burden by trying to sell or give this printer away I'm just going to dump it. The printer I just ordered to replace the Epson 60 is a Canon iX 6520 which has very good reviews and there is plenty of 3rd party inks available which means now I will have to live with the song & dance routine the Canons go through before they start printing.
This printer isn't in the same category either in construction or performance, but it is a decent basic color inkjet printer. My printer sits just inches from the PC so I chose to use the cord that comes with rather than the wireless option. It was easy to set up and put the ink cartridges in it. It is slower in B&W than my old laser jet and slower yet for color but it prints fast enough for my needs. I don't agree with the claim that it prints laser quality documents. It's definitely much sharper than the ink jet printers of years ago, but I don't think it's laser quality. And just to point out what is probably obvious, it is just a printer. No copier, fax or scanner. If you want those features, look at a different model.
I was unpleasantly surprised in one area of printing and customer service, however. On my old printer, there was a feeder slide for envelopes and other things that were smaller than the paper in the tray. I recently bought a package of file labels that were on a 4x6 inch sheet rather than an 8x10 and was looking for a way to print the text on them. That was the first time I noticed the lack of an obvious feeder slide. Sure I must be missing something I went to the product manual online. Still not seeing what I was looking for, I called the customer service number.
When the customer service person answered, I had a very difficult time hearing him. It was like a bad connection but I decided to go ahead so I wouldn't have to start over again. Compounding the connection problem, he had a thick accent. I explained what I wanted to print and which model I had but rather than giving me an answer, he wanted my name, address, email address etc. and then started asking completely unrelated questions about my satisfaction with the printer. I got frustrated with my difficulty hearing him and understanding what he was saying so I decided to hang up and try again for a better connection. The same thing happened again: poor connection, thick accent, no answers only more questions. After trying to get the guy focussed on what I wanted to know rather and no getting any answers, I decided he didn't know the answer to my issue and hung up again. (I finally figured out that you can only print by putting your paper inside the paper tray, whether it is envelopes or smaller paper.)
The only thing worse than a getting customer service representative who doesn't know the product enough to be helpful is when your call is routed overseas so there is a lot of interference on the line and a person whose accent is so thick it makes it more difficult to hear. Epson's customer service got an F from me.
I am also less than thrilled with the construction sturdiness of the printer. The paper tray sits flush with the bottom of the printer (or possibly slight below) so when I need to pull it out to add paper, I have to lift the whole printer a little bit off the stand to get the tray out. It is likely a cost-saving feature but it does make the printer less appealing.
My final complaint is that this printer doesn't use the most common Epson ink cartridge that is carried at the big box warehouse stores at better prices.
Bottom line: This is a decent very basic ink jet printer that should handle most home color printing needs. But I still miss my old laser jet printer even though that one was only B&W.
It measures 13" x 17.5" x 6.1" and weighs just under 10 pounds. This printer can serve multiple computers and operate wireless or cabled.
Print speeds up to 15 pages per minute in black and 7.1 pages per minute in color
Input Paper Tray Capacity: 250 sheets plain paper, 10 envelopes
Paper Size: 3.5" x 5" up to 8.5" x 44"
This will serve well as an inexpensive, zippy and small color printer for home. Very charmed.
