Set up was quick and easy over my home wireless network
I did a lot of research on printers before I bought this one, so my expectations were suitably lowered. Set up was quick and easy over my home wireless network, connecting via my Netgear router to Apple, Lenovo and Dell laptops. Image quality for PDF scans is fine, print quality for black and white and color is good, Wifi reception is steady with no drops, and AirPrint works fine from iphone 5, 6 and 7 cellphones. So the ownership experience has been good for the first four days; hoping this is true a year from now. This ink-spewing disposable devise (definite sarcasm here for all printer manufacturers) has a tacky exterior - cheap-looking brittle plastic that is really a step backwards from my trusty old HP 6500 that died on me after 5 years of reliable performance. To be fair, all the current models of printers that I saw on display at Best Buy looked tacky too. The one-star deduction is for the sweat and the smudges that the workers in the hot muggy factory in the Philippines did not bother to wipe off as they were packing this printer up. These marks are etched into the plastic leaving me with a printer that has a permanently marred appearance - small issue in the overall scheme of things I suppose, but hey shouldn't a new printer look new? Note to Epson, I would be happy to pay twice the price for a nice-looking box that would work reliably for 5 years.

High quality printing, versatile features and connectivity
By Michael Heck
The new Epson WorkForce Pro InkJet All-in-One printers are designed to produce laser-sharp text and professional-quality color documents at fast speeds – and are said to be more economical to operate compared to color laser printers in the same price range. The WorkForce Pro WF-3720 ($149 list) that I reviewed is the most compact unit in the group at 9.8-inches high and weighing about 20 pounds. It’s suitable for home use and small offices.
Still, there’s nothing small in the printer’s features. Black and white printing is rated at 20 pages per minute (10 ppm in color). Part of the printer’s height is consumed by a 250-sheet paper drawer that holds letter or legal-size sheets – and the 35-page auto document feeder on top handles two-sided copying (two-sided printing is automatic). Standard-capacity black ink cartridges are rated at 350 pages (300 pages color) and the high-capacity XL ones yield 1,100 pages for black ink and 950 pages in CMY. I didn’t run out of ink during testing, but after looking at the remaining-ink gauges I believe Epson’s estimates are accurate.
Setting up the WF-3720 was uneventful and fast. After inserting the four cartridges, the printer takes about five minutes to initialize. Other basic steps such as setting time and fax options are done through the intuitive 2.7-inch color touch screen. I used the printer connected via Wired Ethernet; other options are high-speed USB, Wireless, Wi-Fi Direct, and NFC. In my case, the printer automatically picked up an unused IP address. Then, when I ran the setup software on my Windows 10 PC, the printer was seen on the network, drivers installed, and automatically added to the list of available printers. Since the printer was relatively new, the setup routine also automatically downloaded and installed revised firmware.
The Epson Connect Software (optionally installed during setup) includes many ways to print and scan. For example, you can email files to a unique email address for printing. Or you might scan files to an online cloud account (Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive). I tested with my Google Drive and OneDrive accounts without any problems. For mobile users, the printer supports Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print. During testing, I printed from my iPad and iPhone through my Wi-Fi network; under iOS 10, the WF-3720 appeared as a printer option and various document types printed without any issue.
For day-to-day use, I typically printed from a Windows application, such as Microsoft Outlook or PowerPoint; the Print dialog give you easy control over all the printer’s properties, including quality, color, and paper type. The print quality and speed certainly matched my Dell desktop laser. For a more demanding test, I printed some color images from Adobe Photoshop on Epson glossy photo paper. I believe for all but the most discerning eye, the photo print quality matched my seven-ink color photo printer. I was especially pleased that I got those great results by allowing the printer to manage the colors – there was no need to create a custom printer color profile.
There are many other features that probably won’t surface until you need them, such as scanning to or printing directly from an attached USB drive – or a litany of Fax options (60 speed dial numbers, Fax to email).
Overall, using the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-3720 was trouble-free. The features, hardware engineering, and software exhibited a lot of thought. The only thing to be mindful of, as with any inkjet printer, is the cost of consumables. Currently, the high-capacity set retails for about $72 and the individual standard ones are $13. The prices may be justified because of the special pigment ink Epson uses along with the print heads that release various-size very small ink droplets – to achieve the quality this printer delivers. Moreover, the WF-3720 is now on special for $90 at several retailers, including Amazon, making it an excellent value I feel.

Good printer for the money
This printer arrived with issues. I called Epson support, they are shipping the same printer for no charge to replace. Good customer service from Epson on this. I like the printer having its own email address as well, super easy setup, iPad can print to it, laptops and desktops see the printer no problems, Windows 10 installed it when the printer came online - easy setup. Scanning works great, very happy with this printer for the price.
