The Epson Expression ET-2750 EcoTank is a very good wireless all-in-one printer for most people. It's remarkably cost-effective thanks to its EcoTank ink system, which can print thousands of copies before needing to be refilled. Unfortunately, it prints rather slowly and doesn't have the best print quality. However, for busy families and students who don't want to spend a fortune on disposable ink cartridges, it's an excellent option.

Our Verdict

7.6 Family

The Epson Expression ET-2750 is a good family printer. Its photo printing quality is decent and you can print lots before needing to buy more ink. Unfortunately, it has poor color accuracy, so you might find your photos look a little off, even if the details are good. Its scanner also doesn't have an Automatic Document Feeder (ADF), so you'll need to scan documents one-by-one with the flatbed.

Pros
  • Supertank ink system is outstandingly cost-effective.
  • Great connectivity options.
  • Excellent mobile app with lots of features.
Cons
  • Bad color accuracy.
  • Ink level indicators hard to see clearly.
  • No Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) or fax.
6.4 Small/Home Office

The Epson Expression ET-2750 is passable for home and small office use. While its EcoTank ink system makes printing a large number of copies very affordable, it's quite slow, even just printing in black and white. Its scanner is also missing an Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) so if you have lots of documents to scan, it'll take a long time using the flatbed. That said, if your business just needs something with a low cost-per-print, then it could work well.

Pros
  • Supertank ink system is outstandingly cost-effective.
  • Great connectivity options.
  • Excellent mobile app with lots of features.
Cons
  • Bad color accuracy.
  • Ink level indicators hard to see clearly.
  • No Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) or fax.
9.2 Student

The Epson Expression ET-2750 is an excellent printer for students. It's surprisingly compact so you shouldn't have too many issues fitting it in your dorm and it has lots of connectivity options. The best part is how cost-effective the EcoTank ink system is - depending on how much you print, you might finish your degree before you need to buy new ink bottles! Keep in mind that it prints rather slowly, so you'll want to give yourself plenty of time before printing a lengthy report.

Pros
  • Supertank ink system is outstandingly cost-effective.
  • Great connectivity options.
  • Excellent mobile app with lots of features.
Cons
  • Bad color accuracy.
  • Ink level indicators hard to see clearly.
  • No Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) or fax.
7.6 Black & White

The Epson Expression ET-2750 is a good black and white printer. Thanks to its EcoTank, monochrome prints are remarkably affordable. A single bottle of black ink can produce thousands of copies, which is fantastic. Unfortunately, it's not the fastest printer in the world, but at least black prints come out more quickly than they do in color.

Pros
  • Supertank ink system is outstandingly cost-effective.
  • Great connectivity options.
  • Excellent mobile app with lots of features.
Cons
  • Bad color accuracy.
  • Ink level indicators hard to see clearly.
  • No Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) or fax.

Build & Design Quality

The Epson ET-2750 has an ordinary design. The supertank is easy to access, but you'll want to be careful when closing each ink compartment since it can be hard to tell when the lids are firmly shut. The external ink level indicator also isn't as clear as advertised. On the upside, the display console can tilt for easy visibility from different angles, and the rear paper input makes it easy to add sheets without interrupting an active print job.

The Epson Expression ET-2750 EcoTank is a surprisingly compact all-in-one printer that is also quite lightweight. The supertank causes the printer to jut out a bit on one side, but the overall footprint should be small enough for most home offices.

Update 05/19/2020: The screen is smaller than previously reported. We also lowered the score after having compared it to more models. The review has been updated.

This printer has a mediocre display. The screen is quite small, so the icons aren't super clear, and it can take a good number of button presses to get what you're looking for. On the upside, you can swivel the entire display panel to get a better view whether you're seated or standing.

The Epson ET-2750's supertank system is excellent. Unlike typical inkjet printers that have removable cartridges you replace when empty, this printer has four high-capacity ink tanks you refill yourself. You can print an extremely high number of copies before needing to refill the tanks, and even then, you should still have some ink left over in the bottle.

While it's technically possible to fill the supertank with any third-party ink, we didn't try it and don't recommend doing so as low-quality ink could damage the print heads and, unlike regular cartridges, can't be removed if there's a problem.

This printer's scanning features are mediocre. While the scan resolution and color depth are good for scanning photos, multi-page documents will be a hassle due to the lack of an Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). There's also no fax, which could be a deal-breaker for some businesses.

The Expression ET-2750 EcoTank's cost-per-print is outstandingly low. Since there are three bottles of color ink, you'll have to spend a bit more when it's time to restock, but since they last so long it's hardly an issue. Also, many people will virtually never need to purchase more than one replacement bottle of black ink, which makes this printer extremely cost-effective in the long run.

The ET 2750's printing speed is unremarkable. The first page doesn't take too long, but the following pages aren't much quicker, especially in color. This printer also takes quite a while to print photos, so you might have to wait a bit if you need to print a few in a row. On the upside, unlike the Epson EcoTank ET-2720, it can automatically duplex print, which is a fairly handy feature.

This printer has bad color accuracy. Not only will this be an issue for professionals like photographers and graphic designs who rely on good color accuracy, but it'll also be noticeable during everyday printing.

Photo Printing Quality
Borderless Printing
Yes

Photo printing quality is decent, aside from the poor color accuracy. There is good precision in the small details, but the contrast could be higher and the entire photo has a somewhat blue tint.

This wireless printer has great connectivity features. It can be set up with an existing WiFi network via a router or you can connect to it through its own WiFi Direct network. If you have an Apple device you can use AirPrint, while Android users can use Mopria for mobile printing. It doesn't support Bluetooth, but you can print directly from a memory card, which is helpful when you're on-the-go.

The Epson iPrint app is excellent. Not only can you print nearly all file types from it but you can scan directly to your phone, which is great. You can also check the printer's ink levels and perform routine maintenance tasks like print-head cleaning from your mobile device, which is quite convenient.
