The worst printer EVER
The print quality is fine, Ink is expensive
The scanner continually drops of the computer and wont scan
Don't waste your money I have used Epson in the past but Boy Never again Brother is a dream compared to this one
Purchased in December 2019 for A$450.00.
Canon similar product is far superior
Purchased from Officeworks. I have only owned the Epson for a couple of month and am already having issues. From the beginning I noticed the scanner is far worse quality than the similar Canon machine I had previously. It has trouble feeding documents and they often get stuck. This is just with smaller documents, bigger ones are a nightmare! Also the paper rollers behind the tray have already started playing up. I get the same error which is telling me contact Epson support. I did pay the extra for a 3 year warranty as I know these cheaper printers can be unreliable at best. I wouldn't buy again.
EPSOM WF-3730 - do not buy.
I changed brands from Canon to Epson to give this brand a try.
I regret the purchase. The OEM ink is soooo expensive ($700 in last 6 months), that I am forced to go to aftermarket inks. All inks burn out quickly.
The printer occasionally stops printing with a message - do not recognise cartridge. I reseat the cartridge and the printing can be done again. I know that these printing companies make their money out of gouging on the price of replacement inks, but Epson is ridiculous. Considering dumping this printer and going to another brand. The printer driver interface is also fiddly.
Purchased in March 2020 for A$158.00.
I hate it when a printer stops printing because it is showing a low level. There are many pages left to print and the only reason Epson do this is to sell you there expensive ink. My first Epson printer and definitely my last. Will not stand to be dictated to by a manufacturer or a machine.
It's been a rock solid printer especially using Mac
Highly recommend getting the XL print cartridges for the extra oomph. Setup was a breeze and we have multiple devices from Mac laptops, iPhones, iPads and all print very easily.
Responsive Wireless Multi-function Printer
This is a bit cheaper than the other stores when I compared it to other stores. The amount of paper that can be fill inside is plenty enough for regular use. The Ink set included is also enough for start up use. The instructions for set up and screen interface is User friendly in conjunction with the product manual. We usually print directly using the wi-fi direct feature by pairing the Iphone & Ipad (after downloading & installing the Epson app).
The print quality is good and connecting the printer to my Iphone 7 Plus is quick using wireless technology but I’m not so happy with the maximum number of device that can be paired to this multi-function printer. I can say it’s really a Good value for money.
Purchased this and had it up and running and printing within 20 minutes. Connected to home wifi so no issues if you have good wifi. As for printing cartridges there are always other places that sell them for more competitive prices to keep printing costs down. Overall very happy with this printer.
Terrible worst ever
Terrible worst buy from office works was told it was a quality printer 3 months after purchase still cant print anything as the only thing you get is communication error with what I have no idea printing off USB so no internet is required and attached to laptop via cord
Purchased in May 2020 for A$200.00.
Acceptable quality printing but very restrictive functionality
Purchased the Epson WorkForce Pro 3720 printer May 2020 from Officeworks.
Has proven to be at times restrictive with functionality.
Dependency on web software updates, but critically the printer completely STOPS printing in black and white (only wanted to print some documents) when you are waiting to replace a colour ink cartridge.
Have not experienced in the past this complete print shutdown in other brands.
Phoned the Epson help line (1300 361 054) only to be told a temporary print override may can be done only if they send/email a technical ...

Mixed Feelings, Good Features, Questionable Longevity
It ticked all the boxes with it's long list of features and purchase price of the device was good. A good printer let down by potential nozzle clogging issues.
I have had no issues with set up or network connectivity as other reviewers have stated. The only issue I have experienced is some ink nozzles clogging after a few days of inactivity. Luckily these were cleared up with three clean cycles that drained a tremendous amount of ink from the cartridges.
If the nozzle can remain functioning this printer may last a lifetime as the waste ink c...ontainer is accessible from the back of the machine with the removal of a single screw. Searching online shows replacement waste ink containers available for purchase. No need to pull the whole printer apart or buy a new one. Software may still be required to reset the waste "counter". Fingers crossed it don't experience any other issues or a repeat of the clogged nozzle. I don't know why EPSON are so plagued with this issue. I have ten year old Canon wide format printer that sits powered off for months at a time and has never had a clog in its life.
Epson workforce pro wf-3720 =total failure *
As evidenced by other feedback / reviews, this is a failed product.
It runs out of ink quicker than previous epson models that I have owned.
It has wi fi connectivity problems.
It currently will not print following a windows 10 up grade.
Purchased in February 2020 for A$149.00.
Nothing but issues
I have had drama with this since I bought it. I have taken it back to place of purchase a few times and the cannon help line have been good to try and help but it's still a really bad printer. The worst is the muck around between paper sizes letter to A4. Plus any attempt to print from your phone or ipad via wifi is terrible. To save throwing it straight in the bin ( which I'm still very tempted to do). I used a cable not wifi and I scan to a usb then work from that to computer. A Shocker really.

Exactly what we needed
This printer is great! Was very easy to set up and connect to our home network and hasn't had any issues staying connected. Prints quietly and prints in good quality colour and black and white. Haven't had any issues at all. Extremely happy with the printer and at $139 it's a bargain. Ink refills are good value for money as well. Would recommend to anyone who needs a good reliable home printer!

Not worth the money or the time.
Bought this printer as I wanted the auto feed scanner. First one wouldn't work kept eating all the pages I tried to scan. Bing lee was great replaced it without too much hassle. New one scans ok, will sometimes finish mid way through, and will only scan about 20 pages at a time, its not a big problem am happy to live with that. As for printing ink for this printer is one of the most expensive I have ever had, and even when you pay extra for the larger ones still runs out pretty fast. And even though I have almost a full black ink I cannot print...at all (even greyscale) as one of my color inks has run out. This printer is so frustrating, If I had the money for the ink I would throw the whole damn thing out the window and buy a different printer.
Absolute rubbish product
Purchased in May 2019 by my daughter-in-law as a cheap MFC, as it would be used infrequently. She was sold by the need for wi-fi connectivity, but misled by the "false advertising" label on the machine stating it was 30% cheaper to run than a colour laser. After 154 prints, it began to show significant print gaps and at 188 prints, all 4 original cartridges required replacement, which was duly done. Despite print head cleaning, the print gaps remained with the new cartridges...which is when it was brought to me.
I have operated a self-employed...IT business for 20 years working with all manner of IT equipment, including the servicing of printers, both laser and inkjet and no matter what method was used to clean the nozzles the print remained patchy with a rapid decrease in ink level! [Attached image: after servicing, print head clean and inkjet nozzle check - as good as it got!] I have purchased and commended the Epson Workforce series of printers in the past for customers, but would be extremely reluctant to continue to do so based on my experience with this model, in conjunction with the reviews posted by others experiencing similar issues. This product is absolute rubbish and you would need to marry into a European royal family to bear the cost of the rapid ink cartridge replacements required! A 1-star rating is over-rated...and Epson needs to do so much better to restore this repairer's confidence in their future products.
Ink runout very fast
Bought this printer from officeworks for $150. On box it says prinying 500 sheets. After printing only 50-60 sheets ink ran out. Waste of money. Do not buy this product.
Poor print quality
Setup was easy and front panel gave good control.
Scanning works fine and is more than adequate for most general purpose needs.
However the good news finishes there. Print quality was less than impressive. I certainly would not use it in an office environment.
I thought it might be better once I installed new print cartridges, of course this happens soon, because of the tiny amount of ink provided with new printers. Unfortunately new cartridges didnt help. This piece of garbage is destined for the scrap heap, when the ink runs out.
Started out perfect but uses ink used up very fast which is expensive.
Not reliable. Uses ink very fast. Cleans print head often. Upgrades causes problems with this equipment. The short term introductry cartriges last way longer than the xl ones. Tried generic ones and they worked better than the name brand but an upgrade killed that option. This will soon be in the trash
So Far so good
My TX 550 W Epson printer died after 10 years so why not another Epson. Decided on a 3730 and after 3 sheets it died persistent paper jams and eventually unable to print at all. Rang Epson technical and they advised a terminal hardware failure take it back for a replacement. The second one is going well. Good quality print and easy enough to set up. Scanner works well and I really liked how easy it is to get the machine printing from my iphone. I purchased from Officeworks at $159 so not bad value in my opinion.

Disappointed in the printer
Every time I have to tell the printer to print on both sides, After printing it keep going back to print one side per sheet. My other printer what was not an Epson printed on both sides automatically.
Took me also a few hours to set up the printer and the scanner.
Not happy with this product.
Questions & Answers
Horrible. I’ve spent $400 on ink in 4 weeks. I work in a law firm from home due to COVID & it’s hard to find replacement ink. So many problems- worst printer I have owned in 20 years. It was recommended by Office works and tonight, I will through it in the bin. Total waste of money, appalling ! I will never by Cannon again.
I shall say straight off that I am not good at IT stuff. So, I couldn’t get it connected to the internet, had to get help. Had to connect it to PC at first. Couldn’t get it to scan or AirPrint; had to keep asking. Then it did it all for a while, but has stopped again, with a
Message to contact Epson support. Who have given me a report number. I really hope they will get back to me. Why can’t they provide a pamphlet, an information sheet, to go with the f——ing thing? Some detailed instructions , like you used to get .
i had one that did that and found it faulty actually ive had to replace two of the darn things the one I have now seems to work
