Epson WorkForce WF-2850 Inkjet Printer is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 248.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This company withholds information. I print in black and white. Every once in a while, something I print will have a little color, and I inadvertently use color, but not intentionally. I was not made aware, at the time of purchase, that Epson would require that I buy blue, red, or yellow to print in black. This information is tucked away in the FAQ section, and somewhere in the owner's manual, but not on the box. Not provided prior to purchase so that an educated purchase decision can be made. It's extortion! The printer won't work print in black and white, it won't work at all, if you don't buy color ink! That's theft.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I bought this and not only is it excessively lengthy to install compared to HP or cannon where you download simple software that they tell you and then boom your scanning and printing. With Epson you have to go to support search your printer tell it to download then a series of turning on and off the printer. There is no reliable way to use the document feeder it constantly say paperjam. I was able to remove one of the sensor tabs and it now feeds. There is no reliable app that scans it they all lose your work or say the printer is busy. Someone at epson software development has no clue what they are doing or how to satisfy customers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont Buy You cant get ink anywhere for it. Purchased so we could do work during lockdown for Covid 19, bought extra black ink, but then found that once the colour ink ran low the whole printer wouldnt work unless both inks where full, we tried multiple different shops including office product stores online and no one has ink for this printer,

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Printer is an epic FAIL I used this only a couple times. used all the ink trying to get it to work. It will not print. I wasted money replacing ink. There is nothing on this unit that works. I gave it one star because there was nothing lower. Wish i could rate it "0" cause thats the use i got out of it after my money was spent. Brand new and will have to throw it away and buy something that works. Waste of time and money. Many things im behind on or havent gotten done because of this non functional printer...doggone progress killer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Printer This printer is quiet! The wireless WorkForce WF-2850 is the perfect choice for efficient home office printing. Featuring fast print speeds, plus auto 2-sided printing and a 30-page Auto Document Feeder, the WF-2850 delivers professional-quality documents, reports and proposals. You wont even really hear this printer working. Its that quiet. I couldn't be more happy with this purchase. I plan on always sticking with Epson printers from now on. I can see myself using this for years to come. You wont be disappointed with this one. Oh and it fits my table just fine - not too big and bulky and not small at all. I love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from IT SUCKS I got this a few days ago for Christmas from my husband. I feel as though the printer I received was returned and resold. I'm listing my issues below. Initially, it was only for my laptop. Upon receiving I followed the instructions to download the driver from the Epson site. After following instructions I wasn't to print at all no matter what I did. It was unable to connect with my network so I had to use the USB. What's the point of that when you're supposed to "Wireless". I had to go through the drama of uploading everything to my husband's desktop computer so the printer could be added to the network. After finally being able to view the printer on the network. I shut my husband's desktop down so that I may work via my laptop. I went to print my proposal, the printer refused to print. Upon printer not printing, I visited my network just to confirm if it was there. Once I viewed the printer I clicked on the correct device I was going to need to use to print. Thinking that this solved the problem I closed out of the network only to sit for another 5 to 7 mins waiting on it to print. Through all of this, the printer is making the worst noise I've ever heard coming from a brand new printer. It finally prints. I'm thinking everything's cool until I go to print one of the pages I edited in the proposal. Received a printer not ready error again. Checked the network just to confirm if the print was showing. This time I didn't click on any of the options. So, I went to print again, still got the same error. I went back to the network again this time clicking a device, it printed the page. Again I'm thinking I'm good. Closeout the network. I go to print another page and I had to go to my network to click on the device again each time I printed. I've hadn't even had the printer for 72 hours until what little bit of ink in the start pack ran out. I only got to print out 25 pages before I was completely out of ink.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from YOU'LL BE DISAPPOINTED I purchased this about 4 months ago and had nothing but issues with it from the get go. I finally had to return it because it won't load photo paper. Terrible user interface especially for scanning. Had to reinstall the driver several time. Sucks up ink like there's a hole somewhere. Very noisy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have had the Printer 3 weeks and It's never worked I purched this all in one printer after retiring my older Epson all in one printer I had for 3 years. This piece of garbage has never worked from the time I hooked it up with a USB cable directly from printer to my USB port on my Windows 10 computer. I have downloaded driver and loaded and reloaded tem still with no success. I have decided now to not return the printer for a refund, and jut throw it in the trash where it belongs and purchace another brand of printer that will work with Windows 10.I recomend not to waste your time or money on this product that is garbage.
