Epson WorkForce WF-7520 All-in-One Printer
New addition to long line of great printers
Having worn out my previous Epson after much use I decided to purchase the WF-7520. It appears to be as I had hoped. The over sized paper and duplex printing is great for many home projects. Photos look great also. This is my 6th Epson.

1 hour and still no printing. Many errors during install. Will have to call tech support.

works for me
So I don't know what some of you did, I got this home and while the drivers were downloading I set up the printer and added it to my wireless network. I then installed the drivers and after about 10 minute I was printing with no problems. The feature set of this printer is adequate for my needs. Print quality is above par. I have had no issues yet. A lot of the reviews complain that this printer uses too much ink, I ask have you ever printed large format on a 4 color inkjet, they all go through a lot of ink, so I have no problem with how much ink this printer uses. Overall I am very happy with my purchase.

hate this printer
I have just purchased the Epson WorkForce WF-7520 and I hate it. It has problems with the feeder tray and constantly needs to be removed and inserted saying there is a jam when there is not. Then if it runs out of paper, you have to turn it on and off to have it register with my PC (windows 8) to tell it you have reloaded the paper.
Cheap light materials. Doubt it will stand up.

I have not bought a Epson printer in 20 years, saw the workforce and bought it.
Setup was ok did a USB connection and it would not find the printer and took a couple of tries . I find this all in one NOT very user friendly, 1st the auto select of the paper tray does not work, I print a lot of 11X17 that comes from tray 2 and have to go in and select tray 2 and yes this is done after I have already selected the paper size. problem 2 If I make a copy of a 11 x17 it will only come out on a 8.5 X11 I still have not got by this issue even going in to the menu and selecting the paper size (auto select not working) . I think if Epson fixed these issues this would be a spot on device

WF-7520 all in one
Setup is easy. Easy to connect to network. Easy to add the networked printer to wireless computers. Control panel is easy to understand. Two paper trays. Machine is heavy and doesn’t move when the trays are being pushed in. Color printing. Text printing is fast and of excellent quality. Photos are wonderful. Text scanning is fast. Two sided printing. Prints on card stock. All in one. Feeder tray for inputting up to 30 sheets.
Big. Heavy (when you have to move it). Scanning big photos takes time. You will eventually pay more for the ink than you paid for the printer.
I am very happy with this printer; I am happy with Epson. I have owned several Epson printers; they were all well made and high quality. I upgraded to the WF-7520 from a WF-630 that was wearing out. Epson has made significant improvements in their inkjet technology over the years, so that the cartridges last longer.

I'm a techie and have found the printer of my dreams! Right out of the box the first print was crisp and the gradients were as smooth as butter. This is a fantastic printer and without question, the best in its class.
I've tried printing from my phone, tablet and through Epson Connect. All worked flawlessly. I even scanned to email and PDF directly from the printer panel. Also, flawless.
The 2 paper trays are a huge plus. I keep plain, bright white paper in one and higher quality, Epson Presentation Paper in the other.

12 x 12 Printing
My husband bought this for me as a Christmas gift. I LOVE IT....but...imagine my dissappointment when I discovered that it will not print BORDERLESS 12 X 12 size paper....I use the 12 x 12 size paper a great deal and was really looking forward to the ability to print borderless 12 x 12 prints. It would really be GREAT if Epson can do an update to where it would indeed print borderless 12 x 12 size paper. Thanks in advance!

Printer of my dreams!
This is a wonderful printer. I write arrangements for jazz groups, and for years I have dreamed about being able to print my 2-page charts as 2-up 9X12 on 12X18 paper instead of letter-size sheets taped together. The WF-7520 fills the bill perfectly. It was easy to set up on my iMac, and after experimenting with my music software (Finale) print settings, my dreams came true. I found that the large paper must be placed in Tray #1, since its paper size list is largest. I have ordered a 2nd Tray #1, to be used for 9X12 paper in cases where the arrangement takes 1 or 3 pages instead of 2.

No booklet printing
This printer is great in many ways -- but if you want to do booklet printing of any sort -- don't buy it!!!
I bought it specifically to print 9x12 music in booklet form on 12x18 paper. It will not do it! I spent over 4 hours on the phone with the "experts" who couldn't figure out why. I click "2-sided printings" and "settings" and "booklet" but the option of a "center binding" is grayed-out. I was finally told that the problem was that I needed a 7520 instead of a 7510. So I got that one -- still doesn't work! And it doesn't work on 11x17 paper either, which is the standard for booklet printing. In fact, the only booklet printing you can do with a center binding is on 8 1/2x11 paper (or A4) -- and how often do you want a booklet that's 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches? This a terrible design flaw. Almost all other printers have booklet capability. It would be a fairly simple thing to program in and issue a new driver, but no one seemed willing to do that.
