The Epson XP-7100 packs a lot of great features into an excellent compact package. It delivers crisp documents, vibrant photos, and fast copies, backed up by a single-pass auto-duplex feature and a wide variety of connectivity options. It isn’t the cheapest photo printer in terms of operating costs, but it’s affordable enough in low volume applications and worth a look for most personal and home office uses.
The Epson XP-7100 has a reasonably decent design. The output tray slides out automatically when printing, and retracts by pressing a button on the touch screen. The input trays feel solid and make an excellent clicking sound when they’re fully extended and properly closed shut. The XP-7100 scanner lid also feels solid and can be slightly lifted to scan magazines, but not enough for thicker books. The automatic document feeder (ADF) cover feels quite flimsy, though, and the rear input extender seems especially fragile. You can also only access the ink cartridges when the printer is on.
The Epson XP-7100’s 5-cartridge inkjet system is terrible. Both the black and color page yields are terrible. You don’t have to print very much before this printer needs new ink cartridges. Thankfully, if you run out of black ink during a print job, the printer will request to use the photo black or color cartridges to finish the active position. Unfortunately, you can’t continue printing in black and white with the photo or color cartridges after the job has completed. On the upside, there are high-yield cartridges available. This printer will accept third-party cartridges, but this could void its warranty. Special attention must also be paid as this printer uses a combination of dye and pigment-based inks.
