Epson Workforce 1100

 

If you've wanted a printer that could handle tabloid size (11- by 17-inch) paper or larger but didn't think you could justify the high price, the Epson WorkForce 1100 was made for you. Just $199.99 direct from Epson, it's the least expensive...

Better-than-par output quality. Prints at tabloid, supertabloid, and up to 13- by 44-inch banner size

Highly limited paper handling, with a 100-sheet capacity and no duplexer. No Ethernet or WiFi connection

The Epson WorkForce 1100 offers tabloid (and larger) size printing at a bargain basement price for micro and home offices that don't need to share a printer on a network.

This wide-format inkjet printer is very easy to use, though the same cannot be said for the website. The Epson Workforce 1100 offers a healthy feature set with top-of-the-line print quality and competitive help and support. It produces high-quality...

This printer produces high-quality prints at a suprisingly high rate

There are no exceptional features with this device

The Epson Workforce 1100, with its print quality and speed, deserves its place at the top of our lineup.

Beware. Prints good but has issues.

 

No effort by Epson to stand by their product.

Does a good job of printing

Only tested with a 6' USB cable. I was using it with a 15' for a few months and then it began to act up. I thought that I had a bad printer and tried to get it replaced and then was told by Epson that my cable was too long

I like the paper feed better but ink usuage is not controlable. In other ink jet printers you can set the ink volume to less and set the dry time so that when printing text documents you are not using so much ink. The Epson does not give you that option.

great quality picture printing

very little control over ink volume . When printing text mode uses toooooo much ink. Had a hp 8350 befor and it had better control over ink volume so you used less ink

Better quality than you would expect for the price

 

The Print Design teacher purchased this printer for us to print a newsletter assignment. The color is excellent on semi-gloss and matte papers. It is so well recommended, the photo club also purchased one. Good quality prints!

Great for large sized layouts, and large print announcements. Good color and photo quality

The same thing that is wrong with all the Epson printers. The company needs to produce a "high volume" ink cartridge. The two current choices do not yield enough and you spend more money on ink cartridges

Outstanding printer

 

the Epson WorkForce replaced two older printers from the "two-letter" company and even based upon a short use time beats the results from those other printers hands down. If you need the wider format printer you should own this printer.
