Epson ET5850 Reviews

Worst printer I've ever owned

By Robert
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-12

This is not a review of BH Photo, they delivered the product as advertised and on time, 5 stars for them. This printer jams more than any printer I have ever owned. It will print half on one sheet and then pull a second sheet and start printing the other half on it. Double-sided printing? forget it. This printer will pull a sheet from the middle of the stack when it should have been printed on both sides. What I might have saved in ink is now ZERO because I have to reprint so many times, not including the cost of the extra paper.

My 5 year old HP is so much better

By James

It advertises that you can scan to Google Drive through their Scan to Cloud service... but fail to mention it does not work with Google Workspace versions of Google Drive... only the personal My Drive. Control panel interface is archaic. It takes 8 taps to start a scan to a specified cloud location. There are no direct options for resolution or compression. The print quality is good, but the print controller has almost no ability to customize either. This is a terrible device. I bought it as an upgrade to my HP Officejet x586 and instead I've already mothballed the Epson and started using the HP again.

We have about fifty printers at our office and all are toner type printers. This is our first ink jet and we love the savings, quality of the prints and the ease of refilling the ink. We are starting to order more of these for our staff.

This works for a full range of regular and presentation docs. Very happy with the quality of the output.

Unusable

By Home office user 2
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2021-06-18

Bought this as a home office printer. Both ADF and tray paper feeder constantly (I'd say 90% of the time when printing or scanning more than 3 pages) grab too many pages. This effectively makes the ADF useless for document scanning, as it regularly misses pages and jams frequently. Complete deal breaker. Scan to cloud also not working. Very disappointed, as there are many great features to this printer, like the supertank, Bluetooth connection, scan quality, etc.

I love this printer/scanner

I am a (formerly) loyal HP customer. I've always had HP printers/scanners. I made the decision to get this printer because the ink on my HP Color Laser was averaging $800 every 6 months, which is absolutely ridiculous. I chose this model after reading Consumer Reports and learning the EcoTanks have fabulous quality and INEXPENSIVE ink. And it's TRUE. This is not a color laser, but the quality has been GREAT and I'm so glad I made the decision. Also, ink level is so easy to see on the front panel and filling the tanks is easy and no mess.

Terrible Paper Handling

By bauerod
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-04-08

I purchased 2 of these for my small business hoping to cut down the cost of toner for my existing all-in-one units. What a mistake. Pros: 1. Ink lasts a long time and it is easy to fill 2. Nice interface on the touchscreen 3. Scanning via the computer interface is smooth and simple 4. Connection to my LAN was great and able to set a static IP address 5. Two paper trays 6. Print quality is pretty decent but doesn't match laser Cons: 1. Paper handling is TERRIBLE. If printing more than a 1 page document it will more often than not (greater than 90% of the time) grab multiple sheets of paper and either print a blank sheet or have print on about an inch of text on one page and then continue on the next. This is a deal breaker for printing multiple page documents and wastes a significant amount of paper and time. 2. Duplex printing is extremely slow and not reliable because of paper handling. See Cons #1 3. Duplex scanning is tedious I do a lot of research on products before purchasing and I typically take negative reviews with a grain of salt because often time it is buyers remorse or user error. However, I wish I would have taken the bad reviews to heart because I'm stuck with 2 VERY expensive paperweights that I can pretty much only print single page documents with. If Epson could get the paper handling issues resolved this would be a pretty fantastic machine!!

Asked by: Karen
PCL printers seem to be faster and are OS independent. However, if you are using multiple computers with this printer, you would see a difference in the image when sourced from 2 different computers. Also, if you use Mac, PCL printers are not so supported by Mac.
