WorkForce 7610 Wireless All-in-One Inkjet Printer
Top customer reviews
First... the setup. Very easy. Make sure your OS updates are up to date, leave the USB unplugged until the software install prompts you to plug it in. I just plugged in the electric, followed the on screen dialog, installed the cartridges and then did the Epson software install on my PC and was ready to go. There was a 6 minute setup the printer does to initialize itself but it's a one time thing. I suggest taking it slow during the initial setup. I have no need for WiFI, but I did setup my iPhone just for giggles and again, very smooth and easy.
I bought the unit primarily for large format scanning and figured the printing feature just a bonus so the the next thing I did was test the scanner. Super impressed. Crisp high resolution detail for color and black and white drawings. Next it was time to print....I tested the rear print tray first because I use a lot of different art papers of different sizes (11x14, 9x12...etc). The following papers printed flawless and beautifully at varying sizes: Bristol Vellum - 108lb, Cardstock -90lb, Glossy Cardstock 100lb, Matte...110lb. I decided to really push it....
140lb WATERCOLOR PAPER!!!!!!! I printed out five line art drawings 11x14 that I've been wanting to do watercolors for to see if it could handle it. A+ flawless. Not a single paper jam, printer error. Printed them all very smoothly and beautiful. Granted the rear feed is one sheet at a time but as a home user, I'm ok with it. The paper cassette tray I loaded with a ream of 90lb Bristol Vellum and again, flawless beautiful prints.
I haven't printed enough to speak of ink longevity but considering I print mostly drawings, I'm not expecting much. Overall I'm super impressed with its performance and ease of setup and use. My only issue with it is it's GINORMOUS. I've attached some photos but if you're considering this printer keep in mind it's going to need it's own island. It needs room in the front and back for paper feed & exit. For the cost of 149.00 it's an extreme value to say the least. I priced a lot of stand alone large format scanners that were all in the $200 so for even less I get beautiful printing as well. Delighted.
+ Simple installation
+ Quiet (especially the scanner)
+ Beautiful scan quality and supports large documents (11"x14", see Neutrals)
+ Lots of scan options/settings, but also some basic defaults so as not to be intimidating
+ Beautiful print quality and supports printing large documents (13"x19")
+ Borderless printing (see Cons)
+ Cloud printing is pretty darn cool (see Neutrals)
+ Can scan a stack of double-sided papers into a PDF relatively quickly (see Neutrals)
+ In the event of a paper jam during scanning, it will save what you've scanned so far, and allow you to continue--adding sheets--where you left off once the jam is cleared (this was a life saver more than once)
* Illustrated quick start guide would have been improved with included written instructions
* When scanning large documents, or placing documents directly in the corner, it will chop about .1" from the edge
* Auto document feeder will choke on anything thicker than 20-24lb office paper or *very lightweight* card stock
* The Eco-Mode seems rather useless (since all of those settings can be done from the printer's admin panel or from the 'Print Settings' itself)
* The touchscreen buttons can be slow to respond if you don't hit them from the proper angle
* The learning curve is steep and the help section isn't as helpful as it should be
* Setting up cloud printing requires a bit of patience, technical know-how and assuming you're using the Epson cloud you'll need to sign up with them (or use Google Cloud exclusively), and sadly, there is no AirPrint
- Wireless networking is an exercise in futility and humiliation
- It regularly stops communicating within the network, even while still connected, and needs to be manually restarted (sometimes in the middle of a scanning/printing job)
- Doesn't always place nicely when printing from Photoshop
- Doesn't allow you to choose paper specifics (i.e. paper weight and finish), but instead gives you generic terms from which to choose (i.e. professional photo glossy, card stock, etc.)
- When doing borderless printing, the paper options become even more limited (and confusing)
- Print jobs must be canceled from the printer rather than the computer
- Epson software doesn't cleanly uninstall (using either the Epson uninstaller or the Windows uninstaller), which is just very bad form no matter how you spin it
- Large scale printing will burn through ink
- You can only load a single sheet of paper in the rear feed slot and if you don't print within a few minutes, the printer will simply eject the paper (this makes absolutely no sense)
Now for the in depth version (fair warning, it will be long), which I've broken down into three sections: INSTALLATION, SET-UP/NETWORKING, and USE.
Nothing too eventful happened here.
The large box specified a team lift, but I had no problem lifting the printer out of the box myself and carrying it to its final home. (Note: it weighs roughly 40+lbs and is a couple feet wide.)
The illustrated quick-start guide was easy to follow--with the exception of installing the ink cartridges (there was one step that was unclear to me, so I crossed my fingers, took my chances, and lucked out). All told, I had the entire printer installed, inked, and humming in under 30 min. Then came...
If you're drawn to this printer because of its wireless/cloud-printing capabilities and your network is anything other than vanilla, you should prepare yourself for the migraine to end all migraines.
First things first: DO NOT INSTALL THE DRIVERS/SOFTWARE FROM THE INCLUDED CD, DOWNLOAD THEM FROM THE EPSON WEBSITE. I'm sorry for that bit of shouting, but following the above advice may save you some time and mental strain later.
Now, my experience. At first blush it seemed that this would be up and running on my wireless network in no time. Don't trust the first blush.
I played around with the scanner utility to test out its wireless networking/communication (to save paper and whatnot). The first couple of scans were well and good until the printer went to sleep.
Turns out once the printer fell asleep (by the way, there's no way to disable sleep mode, you can only delay it), nothing would reawaken it--at least not from the computer--and even manually awakening wouldn't restore communication between it and the computer.
All the while, the printer was happily chugging along still connected wirelessly to the network--was even able to access its administrative panel from its IP address via browser. It just ignored everything the computer asked it to do.
Several hours of troubleshooting later, I caved and sent an email to Epson support outlining the problem along with all I'd done to resolve it. While the response was prompt, it seemed it wasn't closely read because the answer was something I'd already tried and confirmed as 'not the answer'.
Their next response was to call them because, apparently, the problem was too big to handle via email and they provided a long distance number (not a problem since I have unlimited long distance, but really?). At that point, I figured going it on my own was the best option since I was grumpy and didn't feel like being instructed to do all the rudimentary troubleshooting steps I'd already tried.
Figured out it was the Epson software, specifically the one offered on the CD. I uninstalled the drivers/software (and since Epson doesn't cleanly uninstall, I also had to go on a hunt & forage mission to delete its leftover files/folders), reinstall the software (downloaded from their website), run the firmware update again, and then manually set the printer's IP address (I'd done this the first time around, however, it wouldn't work with the software I'd installed from the CD).
To say it was a two-day long nightmare would be an understatement. But with that battle won, I was itching to print something.
After wrangling the wireless/network set up, the moment of truth arrived.
I opened a document on the computer (mind you, didn't hit print yet), grabbed a stack of inkjet paper, and walked over to the printer when lo, as I bent to open the paper tray, the printer made a strange noise, beeped, and errored out with a paper jam.
I looked at the stack of paper in my hand, then at the (still paperless) printer, and realized it had launched a preemptive paper jam as a demonstration of its might.
Not to be swayed by its 'shock and awe' tactics, I opened all of its hatches and pressed all of its buttons, which it required me to do before it even conceded that there was no paper to jam. And then the miraculous happened: I was able to print something.
It printed half the image (literally), spit out the paper, and then begged me for another sheet. (I thought I was being cunning by only giving it a single sheet to start with.)
So, I went back to the computer and canceled all jobs in the print queue before loading another sheet into the printer when suddenly it sprang to life. It snatched up the paper and began printing while I screamed "STOP WHATEVER THE BLEEPITY BLEEP BLEEP BLEEP YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING" at it. As you might imagine, that didn't work, but at least this time it printed the full image.
Askew by several inches.
I could almost hear it laughing at me.
Only when I apologized for yelling at it and petted it gently did it begin to cooperate. (Sadly, I'm not joking. I still, however, call it the 'evil printer of doom' behind its back.) With our differences behind us, I poked around in some of its settings and coaxed it into printing properly--although printing from Photoshop still has issues from time-to-time.
And I still find it irksome that you cannot specify the paper type, weight, and finish rather than selecting from its generic list of potential papers. My laser printer allows for this in addition to its generic paper types, so the Epson lost a few points on that ground.
I primarily use it for printing artwork (on matte), rather than photography, and each of the prints have been lovely. Vivid colours, true to the original. In some respects it's comparable to my laser printer, however, my laser printer wins hands-down, especially for printing written documents. The Epson I would consider a fine artist's/hobby photographer's printer whereas the laser would be an administrator's printer.
I will periodically update this review with additional observations and insights as I come across them. But, at the end of the day, this printer has become the red-headed stepchild of my office. When it behaves, it's great. When it misbehaves, it's demonic. But over time, it's thrown far fewer tantrums, and that's a good thing. Would I recommend it? If you're an artist looking for a quality printer, and are very patient, then yes. Otherwise, shop around.
I do hope this review was helpful to you, however, if I've overlooked something or you have questions about my experience with this printer, just leave a comment and I'll do my best to answer. And I will be updating it from time to time as necessary.
I will update this after some experience with the printer.
