Any home or small office users after A3 size printing, especially for images and borderless images, will love this printer. It's an excellent machine that gives solid competition to the normal Brother A3 inkjet printers.
Features & Connectivity
As with most A3 printers, the WF-7710 Epson machine comes with an excellent range of functionality that should be more than enough for most people. The only downside is the WF-7710dwf only has one 250-sheet paper tray, which is a full tray less than its brethren WF-7720 model you should likely consider if you want more paper loaded at once.
A big plus for the WF-7710 is the ability to print "super tabloid", going up to a 13x19 inch format instead of the typical A3 limit of 11x17 inches.
- Wireless & Airprint
- USB, NFC connectivity
- A4 or A3 printing
- Scan, Copy & Fax up to A3
- Auto duplex printing
- Borderless printing up to A3
- Tray capacity up to 100 sheets
- 250 sheet paper tray
- Super tabloid size up to 13x19 inches
Print Speed & Quality
Print quality is pretty good across the board with crisp professional looking black text documents and good quality images. It doesn't print the best photos around and you should probably look at more dedicated photo printers if that's the kind of quality you're after, but for an office and home workhorse the colour reproduction is more than good enough.
The WF7710 is a "middle ground" printer when it comes to speed, coming out around 14 pages per minute on our test mono documents. It's not the fastest, with similar Brother A3 printers clocking roughly 2 pages per minute. Colour prints obviously slow this down, coming out around half as fast with 7 pages per minute. Not the fastest but liveable. We've definitely tested slower!
Cartridges & Running Costs
The WF-7710dwf Epson printer is aimed more at a busy home/small office printer segment and its cartridges are built to this aim. Taking four individual colours in the Epson 27 range, each with a sizable yield of up to 1,100 pages each, the inks last and last as you go. You can replace each colour when it runs out so just keep a set spare and you're good to go.
Each cartridge comes in standard or high capacity options to give you choice in how much you spend, with the black even having a second higher capacity option in the 27XXL. We always recommend buying the higher capacity inks as they give much cheaper running costs. With Epson originals you're looking at around 2p per page for colour printing, which is competitive with similar machines. If you're willing to use compatibles you can slash this down to less than 0.5p per page, making it an incredibly efficient printer than is very economical to run.
Who Should Buy This Printer
Any home or small office that wants an economical printer and printing A3 is crucial would be happy with this machine. Traditionally Brother A3 machines have been the most popular, and it might be worth looking at something like the Brother MFC-J6935dw if it's available, otherwise this 7710dwf is a solid offering.
