Epson WF-7820 setup questions

Mar 3, 2023
Hello everyone. I’m new here and haven’t had an Epson for years.
Just had my Epson WF-7820 delivered today. Before beginning setup for my Mac and other devices, just a couple of questions.
I thought I remember reading somewhere online of others having a few snags from following just the setup directions. Is there additional suggestions apart from the included setup instructions? I plan on using it solely through wifi but also am close to the modem and could connect via the Ethernet if that would be a benefit. Is that recommended?
I found it strange that they’re still including install CDs. It’s also strictly for Windows users. I’ve already downloaded the Epson utilities, and there are quite a few! Is it recommended to install all of them? (I included a pic of all the software available...some may be packaged in the Combo?) I remember years ago, the recommended install process was to first connect the printer to computer with USB and then install the drivers. Not anymore, I guess.
As far as the measly starter set of ink cartridges, how many prints should one expect from them? Not sure why they don’t include full cartridges. Seems silly to me.
