Finally consolidated my printing equipment. Took six months to do it, but life is simpler now. First I sold the Brother monochrome laser that I used for printing what I now store digitally only. A few weeks ago I sold the HP duplexing color laser (tired of dropping $500 on a set of toner carts). Today I took advantage of a $70 off sale price and $50 trade-in at Staples and swapped my HP 7500A wide format all-in-one inkjet for an Epson Workforce 7520. Wide format, auto-duplexing (normal formats only), and a 17" x 11" scanning bed.

I had tried a similar single-function Epson a while ago and returned it. But this one is suhweet. Fast and quiet, too.

Yesterday I bought the Epson Wf-2540. It is perfect for my needs and I love it.
I always knew we were related.

How does text output compare to a laser printer?

On Best Quality, just as sharp and black as a laser. Even Draft is clear and sharp. The only function it doesn't have that the HP 7500 offered is walk-up scanning which is no big deal at all, especially since this unit is compatible with VueScan. And I'm already lovin' the large format scanning bed.

The wifi is bullet-proof! The HPs used to periodically drop the connection to the router and those were ethernet connections! So far, this is proving to be an excellent printer.

Agreed.
Nice to be able to print from any computer and my ipad.

LOL!
Sounds like a great printer.
I really do miss wide format.

You're just jealous because my new MFC can whip your girly printer's ass with one ink cart tied behind it's duplexing unit.







So there. mad
