The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 is an impressive all-in-one inkjet printer with a refillable supertank ink system. It has an exceptional print yield for both monochrome and color documents, giving it an incredibly low cost-per-print that should keep running costs down over time. Its scanning features are good, with a flatbed and automatic document feeder, although it doesn't support double-sided scanning. While it prints black-only documents at a satisfactory speed, it prints color documents and photos even more slowly. Although its color accuracy and photo printing quality aren't the best for printing professional-grade images, they should still work well for home use.

Our Verdict

7.8 Family

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 is a very good family printer. It has good scanning features, including a flatbed and automatic document feeder for processing various documents or photos. While printed photos look grainy and color accuracy is unremarkable, it should be fine for home use. Its superb page yield for monochrome and color prints helps keep costs low.

Pros
  • High page yield and incredibly low cost-per-print.
  • Flatbed scanner for digitizing old photos.
Cons
  • Graininess in printed photos.
8.1 Small/Home Office

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 is great for home offices. Its incredible page yield for black-only and color documents coupled with its relatively inexpensive ink refills should keep costs low. Although it doesn't print black-only text documents as quickly as some other office models, it's still decent. It has an automatic document feeder but doesn't have duplex scanning, so processing many double-sided documents could be a hassle. It also doesn't have faxing capabilities.

Pros
  • High page yield and incredibly low cost-per-print.
  • Automatic document feeder quickly processes pages.
Cons
  • No duplex scanning.
8.8 Student

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 is an amazing student printer. Its very low cost-per-print and high page yield let you print off many pages of work without worrying about running out of ink. It has many wireless connectivity options for printing directly from your mobile device, and its scanner is useful for digitally saving handwritten notes.

Pros
  • High page yield and incredibly low cost-per-print.
  • Warms up quickly to print out the first page.
Cons
  • No Bluetooth or external storage support.
8.4 Black & White

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 is impressive for black and white printing. Its black ink tank yields many pages before needing to be refilled, and its cost-per-print is incredibly low, so it's a great choice if you print off many black-only text documents. It also prints decently quickly.

Pros
  • High page yield and incredibly low cost-per-print.
  • Prints black-only text documents decently quick.
Cons
  • No duplex scanning.
7.1 Casual Photo

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 is decent for casual photos. While it prints decent quality photos, there's some graininess present across the image. Its color accuracy isn't bad and should be enough for casual use, but it can't produce color precisely enough for professional use. However, it can print on glossy photo paper, and you can print 4" × 6" and 5" × 7" images, which is nice.

Pros
  • High page yield and incredibly low cost-per-print.
  • Compatible with most glossy photo paper sizes.
Cons
  • Graininess in printed photos.
  • Color accuracy not good for professional use.

Build & Design Quality

The Epson ET-3760 has an okay design. Its white, plastic body feels sturdy, and the ink levels are easily visible. The front input cassette has a width slider that accommodates the most popular paper sizes, and paper jams can be easily accessed through its rear compartment. However, the automatic document feeder feels thin and flimsy, and the scanner lid can also only raise just enough to fit a thin book. If you're low on ink, the scanner's glass section needs to be lifted to reach the supertank compartment, which can be a pain.

The Epson ET-3760 has an okay display. While the display doesn't have a touch-screen interface, it has several physical buttons located on both sides of the screen. The menu is easy to navigate, but there's some lag between entering commands. There's also no numeric keypad, which can be a pain when you need to enter network passwords. Still, the display panel can tilt vertically so you have good visibility of the screen whether you're sitting or standing. However, you may have a bit more trouble seeing the screen if you're viewing it from the side.

The Epson ET-3760 has a remarkable supertank ink system. Instead of using removable cartridges, it holds four high-capacity ink tanks that you refill yourself. As they're designed to hold a lot of ink, both the black and color tanks yield an extremely high number of pages before needing to be refilled. Even if you're always printing off a lot of documents, you shouldn't need to refill the tanks often.

While you can technically fill the supertanks with any third-party ink, we didn't try it and don't recommend doing so. Low-quality ink could damage the print heads, and, unlike standard inkjet printers, the ink can't be simply removed if there's a problem. Additionally, third-party supplies could void your warranty.

The Epson ET-3760 has very good scanning features. Its flatbed scanner is good for scanning fragile family polaroids, while its sheetfed scanner with an automatic document feeder processes documents quickly. Unfortunately, if you have double-sided documents, you must scan each side manually as there's no duplex scanning. If you scan double-sided documents often, consider the Epson Expression Premium ET-7750 EcoTank which has this feature. There's also no fax, which may not be ideal for home businesses, so if you require one, check out the Epson EcoTank ET-4700.

The Epson ET-3760's cost-per-print is outstandingly low. Just like the Epson EcoTank ET-4760, the ink bottles aren't too expensive, and when combined with their high page yields, both the black and color ink become incredibly affordable for long-term use.

The Epson ET-3760 has a good printing speed. Black-only text documents are somewhat quick to print, but it's a bit slower at handling color documents. It also takes about a minute and a half to print off 4" × 6" photos, which can be a bit of a wait.

The Epson ET-3760's color accuracy isn't bad. While it shouldn't be a problem for everyday printing, it isn't suited for those who require more precise color accuracy. If you're looking for a supertank printer and care about accurate color reproduction, consider the Epson EcoTank Pro ET-5850.

The Epson ET-3760 prints photos with decent quality, and all colors are well-defined. However, the photo has a grainy or static-like quality to it which is especially noticeable in grayscale portions. Also, instead of a smooth transition from black to white, there's some color present in the different shades of gray.

These results are based on the actual physical photo, not the scanned image provided for reference above, which may represent the printer's photo print quality.

The Epson ET-3760's mobile companion app, Epson iPrint, is excellent. You can print, scan, and copy directly from the app, as well as perform maintenance tasks like nozzle checks or firmware updates from your mobile device. It doesn't print .txt files natively, but it converts them to PDF first through Google Drive, so you can still print .txt files from the app.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 has a newer variant, the Epson EcoTank ET-4760. The two are almost identical, but the newer ET-4760 has faxing capabilities. However, in our tests, the ET-4760 has somewhat worse color accuracy and printed photo quality.

Compared To Other Printers

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 is an all-in-one supertank inkjet printer with a superb page yield and outstandingly affordable cost-per-print. It has a faster printing speed than most other supertanks like the Epson Expression ET-2750 or Canon PIXMA G7020, but unlike some printers from Epson's EcoTank lineup, it doesn't have an integrated fax feature. For more options, check out our recommendations for the best office printers, the best printers for college students, and the best printers for small business.

Epson EcoTank ET-4760

The Epson EcoTank ET-4760 and Epson EcoTank ET-3760 are almost identical supertank printers in terms of looks and performance. While they have extremely slight differences between them, the ET-4760 has an integrated fax feature which the ET-3760 lacks. Otherwise, both printers are well-suited for a variety of needs.

Epson EcoTank ET-2760

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 and the Epson EcoTank ET-2760 are both good family printers. The ET-3760 is a better choice if you need an automatic document feeder and an Ethernet port, as well as a faster printing speed, better color accuracy, and nicer-looking photos. However, the ET-2760 is a better choice if you print a lot since it has a higher page yield and a slightly lower cost-per-print, and it also supports printing off a USB thumb drive.

Epson Expression ET-2750

The Epson Expression ET-2750 and the Epson EcoTank ET-3760 are both good supertank printers, but the ET-3760 is better overall. It has a higher page yield, a slightly lower cost-per-print, faster printing speed, and better color accuracy. It also features an automatic document feeder. On the other hand, the ET-2750 produces photos that look less grainy.

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 and the Epson EcoTank ET-2720 are both good family printers, but the ET-3760 is better overall. It yields more pages at a slightly lower cost-per-print and prints significantly faster. Also, it has a much better color accuracy and it has an Ethernet port if you want to plug it directly into your router. The ET-2720 does produce somewhat nicer-looking photos, but the difference is slight.

Epson EcoTank ET-4700

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 and the Epson EcoTank ET-4700 are two similar supertank printers. They both have very high black and color page yields, but both suffer when it comes to color and photo printing speeds. However, the ET-3760 has a much quicker printing speed for black text documents, while on the other hand, the ET-4700 has faxing capabilities.

Canon PIXMA G7020

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 and the Canon PIXMA G7020 are both supertank inkjet printers, but the Canon has better photo printing performance. The Canon feels better built, yields more color pages at a lower cost-per-print, and prints better-looking photos. It also holds more paper in its input tray, and it has a fax feature. On the other hand, the Epson yields significantly more black pages and prints much faster, so it may be a better choice if you print long documents more often.

HP Smart Tank Plus 551

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 and the HP Smart Tank Plus 551 are both supertank printers. If you print photos most often, the HP is a better choice thanks to its much higher color page yield, lower cost-per-print for photos, and better color accuracy. If you're planning on printing documents most often, the Epson may be a better choice since it yields more black pages and prints documents much faster.

Epson EcoTank Pro ET-5850

The Epson EcoTank Pro ET-5850 and the Epson EcoTank ET-3760 are all-in-one color inkjet printers that use supertanks. However, the ET-3760 has much better page yields and a much better overall cost-per-print. On the other hand, the ET-5850 is much better for small or home offices, with faster printing speeds and much better-looking produced photos with much more accurate colors. It can print directly from USB flash drives, its automatic document feeder can duplex scan, and it can fax.

Brother HL-L2350DW

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 is an all-in-one supertank inkjet printer, while the Brother HL-L2350DW is a monochrome printer-only unit. The Brother is better if you only need to print black-only text documents, as it has a much faster printing speed. However, the Epson is better if you want more flexibility, as it has a scanner and can print in color. It also offers a better page yield and has a cheaper cost-per-print.

Brother MFC-J805DW INKvestment Tank

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 and the Brother MFC-J805DW INKvestment Tank are differently designed printers, but the Epson is better for small/home offices. The Epson's supertank ink system can yield more pages before the tanks need to be refilled, and it has a lower cost-per-print. It also prints black and color documents more quickly, and it has better color accuracy. In contrast, the Brother feels better built and has faxing capabilities, but it lacks an Ethernet port.

HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 and the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e are both all-in-one color inkjet printers, but the Epson is better for students, as it uses a supertank system for far superior page yields and cost-per-print. On the other hand, the HP is better for small or home offices, as it prints much faster overall, has a better screen, can print directly from USB flash drives, can fax, and its automatic document feeder supports duplex scanning. It also prints somewhat better-looking photos with much more accurate colors.

Brother MFC-J4335DW

The Brother MFC-J4335DW is better for black-and-white printing, while the Epson EcoTank ET-3760 is better for families. The Epson uses a supertank ink system for far better page yields at a much cheaper cost-per-print, and it prints much better-looking photos. On the other hand, the Brother has built-in fax, prints the first page out much faster, prints color documents more quickly, and produces significantly more accurate colors. Depending on your office needs, you could choose the Epson for its superior page yields or the Brother for its built-in fax and faster overall printing speeds.

Brother MFC-J995DW

The Brother MFC-J995DW is a bit better overall than the Epson EcoTank ET-3760. The Brother has a touchscreen display, feels better built, does a better job at printing photos, and can print directly from a USB or an SD card. However, since the Epson has a supertank cartridge system, it has a much higher page yield, so the cost-per-print is a lot less.

Canon PIXMA G3260

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 is better for small or home offices than the Canon PIXMA G3260. The Epson has a better black page yield and black-only cost-per-print, and also has an automatic document feeder and an Ethernet port. It also supports duplex printing. On the other hand, the Canon is better for family use, with a better color page yield, and cheaper color document and photo cost-per-print. It also prints crisper photos with more accurate colors.

Epson EcoTank ET-15000

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 and the Epson EcoTank ET-15000 are all-in-one color inkjet printers with supertank ink systems. As a result, they both have incredibly high page yields and an incredibly low cost-per-print. The ET-15000 prints better-quality photos, has faxing capabilities, and can print on large-format tabloid-size paper. On the other hand, the ET-3760 has better color accuracy, but the difference shouldn't be noticeable during normal use.

Canon PIXMA G6020

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 and the Canon PIXMA G6020 are both supertank printers. The Canon is a better choice for printing photos due to its lower photo cost-per-print, faster photo printing time, and better photo printing quality.

Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4830

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 and the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4830 are both all-in-one printers, but the EcoTank features a SuperTank cartridge system. This system yields an exceptional amount of pages for both color and black-only text documents, and the cost-per-print is incredibly low. However, the WorkForce Pro produces much higher quality photos with much more accurate-looking colors, and it has an automatic document feeder that can perform duplex scanning. 

HP ENVY Photo 7855

The HP ENVY Photo 7855 and the Epson EcoTank ET-3760 are all-in-one color inkjet printers, but the Epson uses a supertank ink system for a significantly better cost-per-print and page yields. It also prints black-only text documents faster. On the other hand, the HP is better for casual photos, with significantly better photo quality and color accuracy. It also prints photos much faster, can print from Bluetooth, directly via USB flash drives and SD cards, and has faxing capabilities.

Brother MFC-L3770CDW Laser

The Brother MFC-L3770CWD Laser and the Epson EcoTank ET-3760 are two differently designed printers. The Brother is a laser printer and it's better suited for small/home offices as it has an integrated fax feature and duplex scanning. It's also much quicker at printing black and color documents. However, the Epson is more versatile. This supertank printer can yield an outstanding number of pages before its tanks need to be refilled, which helps to keep its cost-per-print low. It has better photo printing quality, too.

Brother HL-L2390DW

The Brother HL-L2390DW and the Epson EcoTank ET-3760 are two differently designed printers. The Brother is a monochrome laser printer that lacks a sheetfed scanner. That being said, it has an outstanding print speed for black-text documents, which is great for people who run a lot of these kinds of print jobs. On the other hand, the Epson is more versatile overall as it's a color printer. Thanks to its supertank system, it can yield a lot of pages at an affordable cost-per-print. It also has decent photo printing quality, and it even has an Ethernet port.

Epson Expression Premium ET-7750 EcoTank

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 and the Epson Expression Premium ET-7750 EcoTank are all-in-one color inkjet printers with supertank ink systems. The ET-3760 is a better home office printer as it has an ADF, prints black-only documents more quickly, and has a much better color page yield and color document cost-per-print. However, the ET-7750 has a much better black page yield, can print tabloid-size paper, prints photos significantly faster and with much better quality, and can print directly from SD cards and USB flash drives.

Brother MFC-J895DW

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 is an overall better printer than the Brother MFC-J895DW. The Epson has much better black and color document yields, significantly better cost-per-print, and somewhat better printing speed. On the other hand, the Brother has slightly better color accuracy and significantly better photo printing quality, and prints photos much faster. It also feels better-built and has faxing capabilities.

Canon PIXMA G2260

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 is a much better printer overall compared to the Canon PIXMA G2260. The Epson has a better page yield and cheaper cost-per-print, and faster print speed for black-only documents. It also has an automatic document feeder, numerous connectivity options, companion app support, and a much better screen. However, the Canon is better for casual photo printing, with a better page yield, cost-per-print, and print speed for photos. It also has much better color accuracy and photo quality than the Epson, but can only connect via USB to a computer.

HP OfficeJet Pro 9015

The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 and the Epson EcoTank ET-3760 are both great for office use, but the HP is slightly better because it supports duplex scanning and has a fax feature. It also feels better built and has a touchscreen display. However, the Epson uses a supertank cartridge system, which has much a higher page yield and costs significantly less per print.

HP DeskJet 2755e

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 is much better than the HP DeskJet 2755e, especially since it uses a supertank. Instead of disposable cartridges, the Epson has four refillable ink tanks that yield many pages, which helps to keep the cost-per-print much lower than the HP's. What's more, the Epson prints much faster and automatically prints double-sided sheets, unlike the HP. While its color accuracy isn't nearly as good as the HP's, the Epson's photo printing quality is still better, so you may prefer this option for printing pictures.

Canon PIXMA TR150

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 and the Canon PIXMA TR150 are both inkjet printers, but they're for different purposes. The Canon is designed to be travel-friendly, so it's very compact and comes with a rechargeable battery. Because it's so slim, there's no sheetfed scanner or flatbed scanner. The Canon also has much better color accuracy and photo printing quality, making it a better choice for photos if these aspects are important to you. On the other hand, the Epson is an all-in-one with a flatbed scanner and a larger input tray. Instead of using disposable cartridges like the Canon, it uses four refillable ink tanks, which yield a significantly higher number of pages at a much lower cost-per-print. This makes it a better choice if you intend to print a lot.

Canon PIXMA iX6820

The Canon PIXMA iX6820 is better for photo printing than the Epson EcoTank ET-3760. The Canon prints photos much faster, has better color accuracy and significantly better photo printing quality, and can even print on 11" × 17" tabloid paper. However, the Epson has significantly better page yields, costs-per-print, and print speeds for black-only and color documents. It also feels better built, with a display screen and a scanner, and supports Wi-Fi Direct and Mopria Print Service.

Epson WorkForce ST-M1000

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 is an all-in-one color printer, while the Epson WorkForce ST-M1000 is a monochrome printer-only model. Both are supertank printers with high page yields, but the ET-3760 can print out significantly more pages. It's a better option if you need something more versatile as it includes a flatbed scanner and an automatic document feeder. On the other hand, the ST-M1000 is a good option if you're looking for a straightforward model to print in black and white. Also, it takes less time to warm up and print the first page, and it prints black documents faster.
