Epson WorkForce 1100


The Epson WorkForce 1100 may well be the cheapest tabloid-size printer on the planet.

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.

Epson WorkForce 1100 review

Epson Workforce 1100


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.

You can find better


Getting ready to replace this with a different 13x19 printer just to relieve the frustration of having to clean the heads each time I use it, which is a couple of times a week.

Great looking prints. I print marketing material in 13x19 and when it is working, they look good

Small ink cartridges, more maintenance time cleaning and aligning the print heads than actual time printing

Excellent Printer


I have no regrets buying this printer and I am sure it will serve me well for years to come. My old 1280 was a refurb after my new one was damaged and that refurb printer is now at least 8 years old. It is built like a tank and I assume the 1100 is...

Install went smoothly after downloading Windows 7 64 bit drivers. This is a very fast machine and I look forward to using it to print my holiday cards. I do about 50 of them and no two are alike. This printer will join my working Epson line of the...

This printer is BIG and heavy. I thought my 1280 was big but this one will give you a hernia. It also is not pretty and reminds me of an overgrown lunch box, yet it is smooth operating and efficient

Excellent bang for buck


Great for the price. I finally have a reason to print/frame/hang some of my digital camera pics that have been collecting dust on my computer for years.

One of the best value wide-format printers' I've found. Not specifically marketed as a photo-printer, but this is what I've been using it for and so far it's worked great. 13"x19" prints come out nice on glossy photo paper. Replacement ink is...

Since it's not specifically a photo printer, you only get the 3 colors of ink instead of the 6 or more you'll get with the higher-end models, but those will cost anywhere from triple and up in price. Not the fastest prints (full size 13x19 color will...

Love It


When I started looking for Large format printers I was disappointed. I always buy Epson printers for their premium quality, but they didn't have a model NEAR my price point. I found this model shortly after it came out and jumped on it. I love it so...

High Speed ; Handles all types of paper ; Prints borderless 13 x 19 pictures ; Comes with full pack of High capacity inks ; Beautiful prints

Uses Epson 68/69 inks and the cartridges are tiny. Even the large capacity ones go quick on large full color prints

Short life span


The printer itself is great...if you don't plan to keep it long or use it much. We have had it now for 1.5 years, and use it's a workforce right?? Today, we get a message stating the ink pads have neared the end of their service life. Now...
