The Epson Expression Premium ET-7750 EcoTank is an all-in-one inkjet printer that is great for family use. Instead of using cartridges, it has a supertank system with five refillable ink tanks that hold a lot of ink. Even if you print frequently, you shouldn't have to refill the tanks often, which helps keep the cost-per-print low. It has a flatbed scanner with great scan solution and color depth, but it lacks an automatic document feeder and duplex scanning. Disappointingly, it's very slow at printing black-only text documents and color documents, but it's very fast at printing photos. It produces great-looking photos that have only a bit of graininess and banding, but sadly the color accuracy is only mediocre.

Our Verdict

8.3 Family

The Epson ET-7750 is great for family use. It has great photo printing quality, fantastic connectivity options, and a flatbed scanner with great resolution and color depth. It's very affordable to print in black or color since the ink lasts a long time, so you shouldn't need to buy new bottles often.

Pros
  • Great photo printing quality.
  • Outstandingly low cost-per-print.
  • Exceptionally high page yield.
  • Outstanding connectivity options.
Cons
  • Disappointing build quality.
  • Mediocre color accuracy.
  • Very slow printing speed.
6.8 Small/Home Office

The Epson ET-7750 is adequate for small or home offices. Since the tanks hold a lot of ink, you shouldn't have to refill them often if you print frequently. This helps keep the cost-per-print outstandingly low. Unfortunately, it lacks an automatic document feeder, duplex scanning capability, and it prints disappointingly slow.

Pros
  • Outstandingly low cost-per-print.
  • Exceptionally high page yield.
  • Outstanding connectivity options.
Cons
  • No automatic document feeder.
  • Disappointing build quality.
  • Very slow printing speed.
9.2 Student

The Epson ET-7750 is fantastic for students. The tanks hold a lot of ink, so you shouldn't have to refill them often if you print frequently, and this helps keep the cost-per-print outstandingly low. It has a great flatbed scanner and superb connectivity options, but it doesn't support Bluetooth. Unfortunately, the first page is slow to come out, and subsequent pages don't get much faster.

Pros
  • Great photo printing quality.
  • Outstandingly low cost-per-print.
  • Exceptionally high page yield.
  • Outstanding connectivity options.
Cons
  • Disappointing build quality.
  • Very slow printing speed.
7.7 Black & White

The Epson ET-7750 is decent for black and white printing. It has a high page yield for black ink, which helps keep its cost-per-print incredibly low. It has fantastic connectivity options and a great flatbed scanner, but sadly it lacks an automatic document feeder and duplex scanning capability. It also prints black-only text documents disappointingly slow.

Pros
  • Outstandingly low cost-per-print.
  • Exceptionally high page yield.
  • Outstanding connectivity options.
Cons
  • No automatic document feeder.
  • Disappointing build quality.
  • Very slow printing speed.
7.4 Casual Photo

The Epson ET-7750 is decent for casual photos. It produces great-looking photos, although there's a bit of banding and graininess present. It prints photos sizes 4" x 6" and 5" x 7" incredibly quickly, but it can't print 2" x 3" photos. Sadly, color accuracy is only mediocre.

Pros
  • Great photo printing quality.
  • Outstandingly low cost-per-print.
  • Exceptionally high page yield.
Cons
  • Disappointing build quality.
  • Mediocre color accuracy.
  • Very slow printing speed.

Build & Design Quality

The Epson Expression Premium ET-7750 has sub-par build quality. It provides good access to paper jams from the rear and an easy view of the ink levels, but you need to lift the entire maintenance bay to access the ink tanks to refill them. The scanner and maintenance bay lids stay up on their own, but the dampening mechanism is bad, and it slams shut if you don't guide it down slowly. While the body feels sturdy, the plastic on the scanner lid feels thin and cheap. Also, the scanner lid has a separation down the middle that allows it to fold about 20 degrees. This allows you to hold the document in place with one hand until the lid is almost down, and it also helps prevent the paper from moving due to the draft of bringing down the lid. Unfortunately, it risks damaging the scanner's white background.

The Epson ET-7750 is short and fairly compact, so it should fit well in most tight areas.

It has a decent display screen. It has arrow keys with an OK and a back button to navigate around the menu, and the black background makes it easy to read the text. The screen has good visibility if you're looking directly at it, but it's hard to see it from the side.

Update 06/15/2021: We initially wrote 'No' for our Third Party Cartridge, but we updated this to 'No Cartridge' because this model has a supertank and doesn't use cartridges.

It has an outstanding supertank ink system. It has five high-capacity ink tanks that hold a lot of ink, meaning you shouldn't need to refill them often even if you print regularly. This printer comes with two sets of all four ink bottles, which is significantly more than the small starter kits that are commonly included with most printers.

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 can damage the print heads, and, unlike standard inkjet printers, the ink can't be simply removed if there's a problem. Using third-party supplies can also void your warranty.

The Epson Expression Premium ET-7750 has mediocre scanner features. It has a flatbed scanner with high resolution and color depth, but since there's no sheetfed scanner, any multi-paged documents need to be scanned manually, which can be long and tedious. If you need an automatic document feeder that can duplex scan large tabloid-size sheets, check out the Brother MFC-J6945DW.

The Epson ET-7750's cost-per-print is exceptionally low. Since the ink tanks hold a lot of ink, you shouldn't have to buy ink bottles often, which keeps costs very low.

Update 08/16/2021: We retested this printer to verify if it can automatically print double-sided tabloid-sized sheets. We confirm that it can't print both sides of a tabloid sheet automatically.

The printing speed is decent. While it prints both black-only text documents and color documents fairly slow, it's very quick at printing photos. It can automatically print double-sided, but some larger sizes, like tabloid, need to be turned over manually.

It has mediocre color accuracy. While it may not be good enough for professions that require exact color reproduction, it should be fine for adding a splash of color to a report.

The Epson ET-7750 has great photo printing quality. Although there's some light banding in the grayscale, it isn't present in photos. Images look a little grainy, but colors look good and blacks look deep.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

We tested the Epson Expression Premium ET-7750 and it's only available in black. There's also a variant called the Expression Premium ET-7700 EcoTank. While we haven't tested it, it seems that its input tray isn't as wide as the ET-7750's, so it can't print on Tabloid-size paper. You can see the label of our unit here.

Compared To Other Printers

The Epson Expression Premium ET-7750 is a great all-in-one family printer. It has a lower cost-per-print than a lot of printers in its price range thanks to its outstanding supertank ink system. It prints photos very well, but its color accuracy is only mediocre, and it doesn't have an automatic document feeder like the Epson EcoTank ET-3760. For other options, see our recommendations for the best inkjet printers, the best printers with cheap ink, and the best wireless printers.

Epson EcoTank ET-3760

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.

Epson EcoTank ET-4760

The Epson EcoTank ET-4760 is better than the Epson Expression Premium ET-7750 EcoTank. The ET-4760 feels much better built, and it has an automatic document feeder, a lower-cost-per-print, and a larger input tray. However, the ET-7750 yields more black-only pages, and it has better photo quality and color accuracy.

Canon PIXMA G7020

The Canon PIXMA G7020 and the Epson Expression Premium ET-7750 EcoTank are both great family printers with supertanks. The Canon is much better built, and it has an automatic document feeder and a larger paper tray capacity. It also yields more color pages and has a lower cost-per-print for color documents and photos. On the other hand, the Epson has a higher yield for black pages, it prints faster, and you can print directly from an SD card or USB key.

Epson EcoTank Pro ET-5850

The Epson EcoTank Pro ET-5850 and the Epson Expression Premium ET-7750 EcoTank are all-in-one color inkjet printers with supertanks, but the ET-5850 is much better for small or home offices. The ET-5850 has an automatic document feeder with duplex scanning, a much larger input tray capacity, significantly faster printing speed, and more accurate produced colors. On the other hand, the ET-7750 has a much better cost-per-print and page yields, and it prints better-looking photos. It can also print on wide tabloid-format paper and can print directly from SD cards.

Epson EcoTank ET-2720

The Epson EcoTank ET-2720 and the Epson Expression Premium ET-7750 EcoTank are all-in-one color inkjet printers with supertanks for superb page yields, but the ET-7750 is a better printer overall. The ET-7750 has more than double the black page yield and half the black document cost-per-print, and it prints significantly faster. It also produces much better-quality photos with much more accurate colors, can print on wide tabloid-format paper, has an Ethernet port, and can print directly from USB flash drives and SD cards. On the other hand, the ET-2720 has a larger color page yield and better color document and photo cost-per-print.

Epson EcoTank ET-4700

The Epson Expression Premium ET-7750 EcoTank is a better family printer than the Epson EcoTank ET-4700. The ET-7750 yields many more black pages, resulting in a lower cost-per-print for black printing, it prints significantly quicker, and it performs automatic duplex printing. It also lets you print directly off an SD card or USB key. On the other hand, the ET-4700 is much better built, it has an automatic document feeder, and it yields more color pages.

Brother MFC-J995DW

The Brother MFC-J995DW is better than the Epson Expression Premium ET-7750 EcoTank. The Brother is much better built, it has an automatic document feeder, better photo quality, and it produces slightly more accurate colors. However, the Epson's supertank system yields more pages than the Brother's INKvestment cartridge system, and it has a lower cost-per-print.

Brother MFC-J805DW INKvestment Tank

The Epson Expression Premium ET-7750 EcoTank is slightly better than the Brother MFC-J805DW INKvestment Tank. The Epson has a lower cost-per-print, a faster print speed, more accurate looking colors, and better photo quality. It also supports printing from an external storage device. However, the Brother has better scanner features, a higher page yield, and it feels much better built.
