Epson EcoTank ET-7750 Review

Epson Ecotank 7750 Ink

Back in 2016 we reviewed the Epson EcoTank 4500 and we have been using it ever since, without having to replace the ink that it came with.

It has been a real workhorse for us, printing homework, work things for Hubby and posters and raffle tickets for PFA activities.

My one frustration with it, is that it was unable to print anything larger than A4 size, but now Epson have released their Epson EcoTank ET-7750 and we have been sent one to review.

The Epson EcoTank ET-7750 is an A3 printer designed for printing lots of photos at an ultra-low cost – meaning you can rescue precious memories from their digital prisons and enjoy them every day, without breaking the bank.

Whilst most printers use cartridges, which require replacing as soon as they run out, the EcoTank, like the ET-4500 before it, runs on ink bottles instead. In fact, each printer comes with up to three years’ worth of ink included and has been designed to print up to 3,400 photos!

The printer is easy to set up using the step-by-step instructions which are supplied on a Windows disk. For Mac users and those without a CD/DVD drive, they can also be viewed at epson.co.uk

The printer uses a 5-colour ink system, which includes a black photo ink, a SD card slot, borderless printing, dual paper trays and a clear 6.8cm LCD display. Unlike its predecessor, instead of squeezing the ink into the ink tanks, you simply open the bottle, insert it into the correct hole and it empties itself. The new bottles also incorporate a mechanism to ensure that only the correct colours are inserted too.

The printer is Wi-Fi and apps enabled, so you can print from mobile devices, tablets and laptops.

The one downside to the printer is its size, but as it prints A3 it was always going to be larger. It measures 526‎mm Wide x 415mm Depth x 168mm Height and does not fit in the printer area of our desk. We now have it sat next to the computer, which actually makes it easier to access and use.

The tilting, colour LCD panel and button controls are easy to use and logically configured. The one thing that did throw me, was that you have to tilt the control panel up, and pull out the receiver tray to be able to print.

The printer does print high quality photos on photo paper (that can apparently last up to 300 years in a photo album) and the A3 posters I have printed for school look fabulous.

I am still getting to grips with all the features on this printer, but I like that I can print directly from a usb stick and the double-sided printing capabilities are perfect for the kids homework. The dual paper cassettes, manual paper feed and epson printer app are very useful too.

  1. We have a slightly older model than this and it is fantastic. We are 18 months into having it and the ink is still going. They’re brilliant! x

  2. This looks like a fab bit of kit and we like that its prints unto A3. My mummy has an SRA3 printer at work and the ink cartridges cost a small fortune so it tempted by the low running cost of this one! x

  3. This printer looks amazing – I used to have an Epson years ago and I loved it. 3,400 photos! That’s fantastic!

  4. Those photographs it has printed out look amazing. It sounds like a great printer, and I feel like a need to drop a few hints to my husband

    This sounds like a great printer and the inks look good. We have not had one for years. The last one we got was terrible for using ink up and it was hard to replace. I will have to show my husband this one 🙂

  6. Oh my goodness! We have just bought a new printer, but I really wish I had seen this first 🙁 This printer is just like what we were looking for. Agh well, when the time comes to replace I shall think of this 🙂 x

  7. This sounds like a great printer. I’d love one that uses ink that lasts ages and also does double sided printing. We have an Epson but it’s not as capable as this!

    Oh this looks good. We are well overdue to change our printer (like it is sat there and doesn’t work…I email stuff to hubby in the office at work to print!), so maybe we will look into this one 🙂

    What amazing quality photos!! We are desperate for a printer, we haven’t had one in 3 years and now the children are getting homework projects etc we really need one! This looks great!

  10. Talya says:

    Wow just look at the quality of those photos – unbelievable! We need a new printer so will have to have a closer look at this one.

  11. I never have any luck with printers but this one looks great with all it’s features. The quality of those prints is amazing!

  12. That looks like a brilliant printer, especially great for posters that you can print A3. I think its ideal if you have a home office to keep it in.

  13. This printer looks amazing. I like the features a lot.

  14. Im in desperate need of a new printer what with starting home schooling so will definitely be taking a closer look at this one!
