We’ve gathered our top picks for the best Epson printers here. These printers are from one of the most well-known and trusted names in the business so, no matter what you end up choosing, you’ll end up with a solid option.
In fact, depending on who you ask, they may say that Epson printers are the best printers available right now. That’s for good reason since the company has proven that it can deliver fantastic printers for all sorts of users. No matter if you need something for your home office, a reliable printer for your business, or something in between, there’s something on this list that fits your needs.
The distinctive form factor (which won a Red Dot design award) makes this a simple and practical printer ideal for use at home or the office. There’s a handy touchscreen built into the raised scanner bed and plenty of room for paper in both the main tray (250 sheets) and the ADF (35 sheets). It can auto duplex and turn out printed pages surprisingly quickly for an inkjet. 17ppm is the ISO standard figure given for monochrome pages, but it can manage a remarkable 37ppm in draft mode. While the initial cost is quite high for an all-in-one inkjet, the refillable tanks mean you are not tied to expensive cartridges and Epson is bundling enough bottled ink in the box for 7,500 mono pages and 6,000 color. It lacks fancy features such as NFC connectivity or a front USB port, but this EcoTank Pro model should meet the needs of any small office, while keeping running costs right down.
We have few gripes with the WorkForce Pro, which sports an impressive feature set and offers exceptional value. This compact model prints in color and mono with impressive results, and it boasts a myriad of connectivity options including USB, WI-Fi, Wi-Fi direct, Ethernet and even NFC, which is lacking in some rivals in its price category. Handily, its ADF supports automatic scanning of both sides. Only its output tray, which holds half the amount of sheets than certain rivals in its class, and lack of optional paper trays (for mixed paper size printing) are cons worth mentioning.
Epson has managed to shrink the inkjet printer to the size of a small handbag without sacrificing key features, or print quality and while adding a powerful Li-Ion battery. The protective plastic casing is textured for grip and scratch resistance and it unfolds to form the paper in tray, which can hold 20 sheets of A4. Inbuilt Wi-Fi enables a direct connection with your mobile device, or a Wi-Fi network. Alternatively, there’s also a micro USB port for making a wired data connection, and crucially, this port can also be used to charge the internal battery. There’s no auto-duplex mode of course, but the print quality here is no less crisp and colourful than a full size printer.

Hats off to Epson for managing to eke professional-looking photos out of the XP-15000, a consumer-grade model that does a great impression of a commercial printer. It's a feat the company has achieved through the use of its Claria Ultra HD inks and the XP-15000's 180 nozzles, which combine to produce strikingly vibrant color photo prints and sharp greyscale images with a max resolution of 5760 x 1440 dpi. The unit is compact for a wide-format inkjet printer, and it's compatible with various mobile printing services including Epson Connect Solutions, Epson Remote Print, Apple AirPrint, and Google Cloud Print.
This refreshingly simple monochrome print-only device may seem spartan in terms of features, but what to does do, it does well. There’s no display of any kind, no inbuilt wi-fi and no auto duplex mode, however, there is a large refillable reservoir for black ink that makes this one of the most economical printers in town. It ships with enough bottled ink to yield around 5,000 pages, so it actually works out at a lower cost per page than a laser printer. There’s enough room for 150 sheets of A4 in the main tray and it prints at a respectable rate of 15 pages per minute, or more than double that in fast mode.
There's a lot to like about the Epson WorkForce WF-7210DTW. Despite being one of the more affordable A3 inkjet printers around, it consistently produces high-quality output thanks to Epson's PrecisionCore technology. Blacks are crisp, and photos are as good as could be expected at this price range. It's not short on connectivity options either, with USB, Ethernet, NFC and wireless connectivity (via Epson Connect) for direct and remote printing. If we’re being picky, its LCD display is a touch on the small side.

This is a compact printer that produces pleasingly high-quality photos. Similarly to its wide-format printers, Epson twins the model with its with premium Claria ink cartridges to print stunning color photos. On the flip side, they as expensive as they are impressive and offset the XP-6100's initial affordability. Once in operation the XP-6100 prints quickly and can handle a variety of media, from glossy A4 paper to envelopes. Its connectivity options include Wi-Fi Direct, AirPrint, in addition to an SD card reader and touchscreen that's bigger than most.
The Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4820DWF is a fine example of just how much you can get out of a mid-priced office-oriented inkjet all-in-one these days. This is a color printer with auto duplex, an automatic document feed, high-res flatbed scanner and a fax modem. It can print faster than some laser printers in its fastest monochrome mode, but being an inkjet, it can also print decent quality photos onto glossy paper. The cost of ink cartridges should be a consideration as they are not the cheapest. The consumables cost is more competitive if you sigh up to Epson’s ReadyPrint subscription ink service which mails replacement cartridges to your door.
Epson’s supertanker printers undercut the cost of cartridge printing by up to 90% and the Epson EcoTank ET-5170 takes the ink reservoir technology to a new high. The tall design makes it especially easy to photocopy documents on the raised scanner bed, while the copies collect underneath. There’s only room for 60 sheets in this output tray, but you can fit 250 sheets in the main input tray and another 35 in the automatic document feeder on top.There’s a fax facility, inbuilt Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct, but this model’s standout feature is its rapid print speed. 23 pages per minute in color and 37 in monochrome. The five bottles of ink included in the box are another major reason for choosing the Epson EcoTank ET-5170.
This four-in-one inkjet printer falls somewhere in the middle of Epson’s ever-growing EcoTank range and is something of an all-rounder. Instead of expensive features like a touchscreen interface, it has only the essentials, such as an auto duplex mode and Wi-Fi with Wi-Fi Direct and AirPrint. There’s also a fax facility and 30-sheet ADF (automatic document feed) for business users. Its killer features though, are those refillable ink tanks which can cut your ink cost by 90 percent. One set of bottled ink, which you’ll find in the box, should yield the equivalent of 72 cartridges.
