Bear Stone Reviews

It’s almost Christmas time so I thought I would review another printer!  This time Epson sent me the Epson XP-7100 Small-in-One Printer.  This thing is compact and FULL of features!   Color Printing, Scanning, Faxing and photo printing just in a nice compact form factor.  This printer is a definite winner for smaller spaces where you need an all in one but don’t want to take up a whole desk.
Set up is a breeze. Took a whole 5 minutes. The hardest part as usual is tearing all the blue tape from it. They locked the printer down in every possible way with the tape to prevent any movement during shipping. This particular test unit came with single cartridges for each of the colors including a Photo Black one for color Photo printing.

Powering up the system for the first time took around 7 minutes.  The handy touchscreen kept me informed each step of the way.  With Printer head alignment and color corrections, it took about 15 minutes total to set the entire thing up.  I love setting up devices and then getting firmware updates.  That’s the beauty of the connected devices.  It just gets better over time and the mighty Epson delivered on the firmware update.

Like the prior Epson printers I have reviewed, this one has a nice clear bright touchscreen on the front for set up. I chose to set up the system using Wi-Fi but there was a connection for a hardwire if that was something you wanted to use.
This printer is pretty inexpensive and for that trade-off, it’s not the fastest printer out there or the most quiet.  In fact, it’s kind of loud. ;)  I might be spoiled by my Epson ET-7750 though.
Setting up home printers these days is dead simple.  Hooked up to Wi-Fi and printing pictures directly from my iPhone in literal minutes.

But for it’s size and price, this is a great printer for normal business documents and I’ve been using it throughout the day without issues.  For a home office with moderate printing requirements, this is more than enough printer.
This is a review for the Epson Expression Premium XP-7100 Wireless Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.
Happy Printing!
