We couldn't find any video reviews for Epson XP-15000 yet
Side by Side

Is the price difference of $108 worth it?

It depends on what you need from a Printer. We'll break it down for you.
Comparison summary:
Advantages of Canon Pixma Pro-100:
  • It is a noticeably quieter.
  • It can produce higher quality black prints
  • It can produce higher quality color prints
Advantages of Epson XP-15000:
  • It is $108.50 cheaper
  • It supports double-side printing, but Canon Pixma Pro-100 does not.
  • Epson XP-15000 has an LCD status display, but Canon Pixma Pro-100 does not.
  • It prints faster in black-and-white
  • It prints faster in color
Alright, now let's go into details.
7 differences we consider important:
  • Epson XP-15000 supports double-side printing, but Canon Pixma Pro-100 does not.
    Automatic duplex printing (also known as two-sided printing) refers to a printer's ability to print on both sides of the paper, without having to manually flip it.
  • Epson XP-15000 has an LCD status display, but Canon Pixma Pro-100 does not.
    LCD status displays are very useful. Your printer can tell you if ink is low or paper is jammed.
  • Canon Pixma Pro-100 is a noticeably quieter.
    When printing, Epson XP-15000 has a loudness of 49 dB (decibels), while Canon Pixma Pro-100 measures at 38 dB.
    How loud is that? We made a decibel chart for you to reference.
  • Epson XP-15000 prints faster in black-and-white (9.2 vs 1.2 PPM)
    In black-and-white, Epson XP-15000 prints at 9.2 pages per minute (PPM). Canon Pixma Pro-100 measures at 1.2 PPM.
    Epson XP-15000 would take about 10:52 to print 100 pages, Canon Pixma Pro-100 would take 1:24:45.
  • Epson XP-15000 prints faster in color (9 vs 1.2 PPM)
    In color, Epson XP-15000 prints at 9 pages per minute (PPM). Canon Pixma Pro-100 measures at 1.2 PPM.
    Epson XP-15000 would take about 11:07 to print 100 pages, Canon Pixma Pro-100 would take 1:24:45.
  • Canon Pixma Pro-100 can produce higher quality black prints (4800 x 2400 vs 5760 x 1440 DPI)
    The black print DPI of Canon Pixma Pro-100 is 4800 x 2400. Epson XP-15000 has the DPI of 5760 x 1440. What is DPI? In short: number of dots a printer "draws" per inch. Higher DPI means higher quality print. It's not the easiest thing to understand, so if print quality is very important to you, we suggest reading an article on DPI.
    • 600 x 600 is more than enough DPI to print any kind of documents.
    • Higher DPI takes more ink to print, draining your cartridge/toner faster.
    • Whenever you see 'DPI', it's actually referring to the 'maximum DPI'. Your printer will often choose to lower the DPI where necessary to conserve ink.
  • Canon Pixma Pro-100 can produce higher quality color prints (4800 x 2400 vs 5760 x 1440 DPI)
    The color print DPI of Canon Pixma Pro-100 is 4800 x 2400. Epson XP-15000 has the DPI of 5760 x 1440.
    • Unless you are a professional photographer, 1200 x 600 DPI will be fine for printing photos.
3 similarities we think are important to mention:
  • Both printers can print over Wi-Fi
    Printing over Wi-Fi is a very common feature, available even in most budget models.
  • Both printers can print from mobile
    In most cases, if a printer supports wireless printing, it also supports Wi-Fi printing.
  • Neither printer supports has a scanner or a copier
    Scan and copy technology have a large hardware overlap. If a printer supports scanning, it will likely support copying.

scanner Scan, Fax, and Photocopy

The four main functions of printers are: printing, scanning, photocopying, and faxing. Either your device will be print only, print/scan/copy, or an all-in-one printer that does printing, scanning, copying, and faxing. Note that scanning and copying almost always come together, since the hardware for these features overlaps significantly. Generally speaking, all-in-one printers are larger, so those with space constraints may find this to be an inconvenience. Additionally, printers with a fax feature are typically more expensive. It would be wise to only consider this feature if you plan to fax often. If not, you’ll be satisfied with a print/scan/copy device.

wifi_tethering Connectivity

Network printers can be wired or wireless. A printer with a wired network connection uses an Ethernet cord that connects directly to your router. A wireless printer connects to your home or office Wi-Fi network. Any computer also connected to your network can use your printer, whether it’s wired or wireless. You will have to install software, or printer drivers, on the computer before you can print. Also, there is a setup process for the printer to get it on the network. If your printer is not wireless, you’ll need to connect it directly to your computer via USB cable, which is not ideal if you have multiple users that need the printer simultaneously.

Outside of Wi-Fi, there are a number of ways a device can connect to a printer. If the printer is not wireless, you’ll have to connect to your printer via USB cable. Some people prefer using the wired connection because it allows for faster data transfers and quicker printing. Depending on the speed of your Wi-Fi and how strong the signal is, it can take time for the document to send from computer to printer over the network. Using a wired connection eliminates this issue. Other connections you may have are: Ethernet for wired connection to your network; Airprint or Google Cloud Print for quick direct printing over the cloud/internet; USB hard drive or memory card to print directly from storage devices; or PictBridge to print directly from cameras.
