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.

States that it is a 7510 and only prints from one tray. I bought this so that it has 2 trays, one for envelopes and one for paper. Now I have to change TRAY 1 each time I want to print an envelope.

I've used this scanner printer for over a year. I've scanned over 15,500 B&W 10 x12 inch pages both sides threw the top auto feed scan section and a couple of fax batches also. I'm now scanning on table top photos in 300 dpi color from large book. The project will end when I have scanned in 13,000 pages. Once a month I have to fill the ink cartridges up even though I never used the printer to print. Every time you turn on printer it sucks ink threw head and goes to dump reservoir in order to keep heads from drying up.
If you decide to use refillable ink cartridges use the cartridge type, the ones with tubes in them will only work if you print everyday otherwise the tube type will dry your heads up in less than a year because of occasional use making your printer not economically to sent off to fix. The tube type uses suction, and if a tube in the printer collapse well the ink will not flow and then dries up the heads. (Using non Epson certified cartridges will nullify the warrantee.# There is no way to unplug a print head once it's plugged, I've tried all kinds of things that were suppose to work.
Photoshop 9&10 versions left out the Twain support, especially in 64 bit computers so I use the Photoshop CS #ver.8 2001-3) which is oldest program that doesn't have memory problem crashes and sill recognizes the Epson scanner. The home Epson WIA is recognized in newer Photoshop version, but is useless since it only scans one picture at a time and no control on how you want it scanned in.
These printers have printer tubes that split open and making the printer not work or spill ink all over your paper. I think it is when you use the tube refillable cartridges, but can't verify the reason, or it may have been the first few made and was corrected later with better cartridge head tubes.

Great Hardware Weak Software
Our office purchased this to replace a color laser printer. We weren't interested in an all in one, but the big selling point for us was the 11x17 automatic paper feeder. The hardware functions beautifully. It makes beautiful prints and creates high quality scans. It prints quickly and the User Interface on the machine is fairly easy to figure out.
We encountered a rather infuriating problem with the ABBYY Fine Reader software though. It completely disables all Microsoft Office 2013 software. So all of a sudden people were not able to get their email or use Word. Pretty much brought business to a halt for 3 employees for a half a day while we figured out what the issue was and how to resolve it. Turns out there's a different version for machines running 32-bit Microsoft Office 2013, but I was told by ABBYY technical support that it will NEVER work with 64-bit Microsoft Office 2013.
Which is rather disappointing. At the same time we purchased this printer we also bought 8 new computers since XP will no longer be supported. It's hard to believe that a brand new printer will not work with our brand new computers. Plus it was rather pricey and time consuming to figure this out. If it was known Epson should make the customer aware of the situation or just ditch the 3rd part software all together.
We're still deciding if we're going to keep it or return for something that is fully compatible with our new computers and software. Since all we really wanted was a color printer we will probably keep it. All of the 64-bit Microsoft Office 2013 machines can still print to it. All of the Epson software and drivers work fine, they just won't be able to use the OCR functionality.

So Far So Good
Just set up and started using the EPSON WF-7520 today, so admittedly early on in the review process. Still, the setup was very easy and the printer quickly connected wirelessly to my laptop across my office room. The instructions were easy to follow and read. And, setting up the initial date/time and other basic information was also a snap. Print quality is excellent on the first few pages that I have printed. I didn't find the machine noise excessive - no more than other printers that I have owned. The paper tray adjusts nicely. Overall, this printer seems much more sturdy and well built than other printers that I have used for in-home purposes. I have not yet tried the copy and/or scan feature, so I am unable to comment on that yet.

Good so far!
Just set up this WF-7520. It set up easily enough. Pictograph for set up was easy to follow. Software CD flowed in a logical progression. Printing was good. Some of the controls are not as intuitive as expected with different symbols that take some getting used to. Also the LCD display is rather small. All in all it seems to be good. Time will tell.

This is a good machine. Foot print is large but works great and setup was very easy.
