our Verdict

The Epson EcoTank ET-15000 is an incredible upper mid-range printer for offices and busy households/home offices. It has remarkably low running costs of 0.3 cents per page, which ranks the best among our certified, tested printers. You also get a massive estimated page yield of 6840 black-only prints and 4574 color prints. Its max print resolution of 4800 x 1200 DPI ensures details in the prints are clear, and the 1200 DPI scan resolution with 24-bit color depth is suitable for high-quality scans.

Printing speeds are average at 14.6 PPM (black-only) and 5.4 PPM (color), but color accuracy is poor (with a 10.33dE color difference). The ET-15000 supports automatic duplex printing, and connectivity options include WiFi, Ethernet, Apple AirPrint, and Mopria, but there is no printing from external storage.

ReasonS to Buy

  • High-quality prints and scans
    • This all-in-one printer is excellent for offices and home offices with significant printing needs.

    • Its max print resolution of 4800 x 1200 DPI gives you precise details in prints. The 1200 DPI scan resolution with 24-bit color depth is good for retaining small details during photo enlargement.

  • Ultra-low running costs
    • The printing costs of 0.3 cents per page offer remarkable cost efficiency and rank the best among our certified, tested printers.

Reason to Avoid

  • Slow printing
    • The 14.6 PPM black-only printing and 5.4 PPM color printing are only average, ranking in the middle of our verified, tested list. Although fine for moderately busy spaces, these speeds aren’t preferable for demanding work environments.

  • No printing from external storage
    • Although the ET-15000’s connectivity options include WiFi, WiFi Direct, USB to computer, Ethernet, Apple AirPrint, and Mopria, you can’t print from external storage devices like USBs and SD cards.

  • Poor color accuracy
    • With a 10.33dE color difference, color accuracy is poor and ranks among the worst in our certified, tested roster.

The Epson EcoTank ET-15000 and the Epson EcoTank ET-3850 are both all-in-one inkjet printers suitable for families and small offices, thanks to their minimal running costs. The ET-15000 has a larger input tray capacity and faster scan speeds of 5 PPM, but the ET-3850’s slightly faster printing speeds and higher page yield can keep up with demanding environments. Moreover, the ET-3850 costs around 60% less than the ET-15000. For more information, read our Epson EcoTank ET-3850 review.

The Epson EcoTank ET-15000 has a lower running cost and a considerably higher page yield than the Canon Pixma TR8620A, making it more suitable for busy homes and offices. However, the TR8620A costs 1/5th of the ET-15000, and has higher color accuracy for quality color prints. To learn more, check out this Canon Pixma TR8620A review.

With its lower printing costs and faster black-only printing, the Epson EcoTank ET-15000 is preferable for offices over the HP Smart Tank 7602. But the 7602’s higher-quality prints and swifter color printing make it more apt if quality is a priority. For an in-depth review, consider this HP Smart Tank 7602 review.
