A good value, not necessarily for everyone.
on October 13, 2016
If you are considering whether to buy this, you probably want to know whether it is a decent printer (it is) and whether it is a good value (it probably is, depending on how much you print). Whether it is the right fit for you is another question.

I previously gave this printer a bad review becuase I was using off brand “ND” brand ink which worked perfecty in my last Epson Ecotank 2550 printer (DO NOT USE dye based black ink in this printer. The 2500 and 2550 and 4500 can use dye based black ink but this one uses pigment based black ink. It will ruin the unit and you’ll have to suck it out with a needle and replace it and it’s a mess) and after swapping it out with the Epson brand again everything was fine.
Great option for those who want a color printer without expensive ink refills
on October 19, 2016
Yes, I just spent $400 on a printer. I’ve been waiting for over a year for Epson to come out with the ‘second generation’ of ecotank printers, figuring that I liked the concept, but wanted to see if there were any big issues or fixes from the first generation. I’ve been an Epson printer fan forever, and have owned quite a few. I heard mostly good things from the first generation, and when I heard the 3600 was going to be released, I was ready to buy. It took about 2 months from when it was announced to when I could find one at a local office supply store. I would’ve bought via amazon, but their estimates are still 1-2 months out, and shipping from epson was too high.
Poor design, no warranty

I bought this for my father because I wanted a worry free printer (no changing ink). It has been nothing but worry. The duplex option means that you loose the rear paper feed and in stead are stuck with a little drawer that pulls out from under the output tray. This drawer not only holds limited amounts of paper, but does not fit properly meaning it won’t go back in. I am uncertain if this is a design problem or a broken part.
Great concept, but terrible print quality.

Print quality is subpar for the price. I love the ink tanks, and the avoidance of print cartridges, but the overall print quality doesn’t hold up for a printer of this price range. Epson even issued an RMA for my first printer after I sent them pictures of the print quality. They shipped a new printer ASAP, but the replacement still suffers from the exact same print quality issues — lines in print output, smears, etc, regardless of the quality of paper that I put in the tray. I’ve tried everything that Epson support recommended including cleaning print heads dozens of times, re-alignment test, etc. While some of this helps for the next few prints, a fresh print a few days later will come out as total garbage. I don’t have the patience to clean the print heads every time I want to print something.

Easy to set up & FAST! Obviously I can’t comment yet on whether or not the ink will actually last for 2 years, but it came with enough ink to get set up and refill at least 3 times. After moving from a cheap ink jet that I had to buy cartridges for at least once a month, knowing I don’t have to worry about ink for my personal & small business printing is a huge load off & will save me money in no time! Print quality is top of the line & it spits out those pages super fast!
Not what I expected for the price

I haven’t had the ET-3600 for long and may revise my review over time but my initial impression given how much this thing costs is mild disappointment. Print quality is about the same or possibly marginally better than the much, much cheaper Canon Pixma that it replaced. I wouldn’t have replaced the Pixma in the first place but it died for seemingly no reason–I printed an Amazon shipping label that came out perfectly then a message came up on the display to unplug the printer and call for service. I couldn’t get the message to go away so it was time for a new printer and I use enough ink that I thought one of these might be a good deal.
Cheap tray. Sensors off. "Eco-Tank" . Pshhh

I usually don’t leave negative reviews, but I was disappointed in this because I wanted it to work out, even though the whole thing with this “eco-tank” doesn’t make any sense to me. Why not just make good printers & allow people to reuse the cartridges & refill ink. It was always like this. Then about 3 years ago printer companies started blocking people from refilling their ink. Now they are making new printers, calling it “Eco friendly” & acting like this is a new way of saving money on ink & no wasting cartridges. Has anyone else caught on to this?? It’s so bizarre to me.

I’m disappointed with this printer. Right out of the box it misses lines leaving horizontal steaks across the page. It misses even after cleaning the print head. It happens for both color and B&W printing. I had high hopes but would not buy it again. Kudos to Epson for trying to change the business model but the printer quality is lacking.
This printer worked very well and I was happy with the print quality

This printer worked very well and I was happy with the print quality. It stopped working after 2 months giving a “paper jam” error message even though there is no jam. Epson states there is no fix for this issue because it’s a hardware issue. Epson confirmed that they indeed manufacture the hardware for this printer and it’s not manufactured by anyone else. Epson told me I should contact the company I purchased it from. Amazon notified me that my return window expired already but they were willing to refund $259 out of the $329 I paid (including tax). I’m not satisfied with Epson’s level of customer service knowing it’s a hardware issue on their end. If I purchased from a less reputable company I would’ve considered it a risk of technology. Not impressed, Epson. I’m mostly satisfied with Amazon’s response. I will have to ship the printer back to them once the return label arrives. I guess this subpar product isn’t amazon’s fault and I’m glad to get such a substantial refund…but somehow I feel like I’m getting the short end of the stick. I wonder what Epson’s arrangement is with Amazon on taking returns for faulty product. I’m sure Amazon has a way to avoid taking a loss. Epson definitely has a business team making sure they absorb no loss. But I have a paper due, kids to pick up from school and I don’t have a system in place to absorb no loss. Only recourse is to not buy Epson again. Little consolation.
