Summary: This is mainly about the scanner capability. I had been searching for a large format (11x17/A3) scanner for a long time, and most dedicated scanners of this size start at over $1000 with most being $2000 or above. I finally saw one with a brand name I did not know for ~$500, but mediocre reviews.
Summary: This is a HUGE printer. Not much wider than usual, but very tall--about three times the height of a conventional printer. It looks more like something you'd see in an office/commercial environment, rather than a home model. Set up was easy, with simple instructions.
Summary: This printer was very easy to set up. I did not have the USB cable (it does not come with one) but the detailed "start here" booklet even gave me a place to jot down my network name (SSID) and network password.
Summary: This guy is big, but if it were smaller, it would be lower quality. And the quality is great! It is easy to set up, and the print and scan quality is surprisingly good. I was very impressed with the printing speed, as well as the accuracy when scanning.
Summary: I got this printer to print Half red line sheets for an engineer in a remote office. They needed an All in One printer, scan ,fax to cover all the scanning and printing the Engineer needs to do when he worked on a project. the good: It's Cheap...
Summary: I had purchased a Brother inkjet MFC (I believe it was the J6920) and was disappointed with the print quality and never was able to get it running correctly. This Epson was stellar out of the box. Elegant LCD screen options and huge scanning platen.
