It's not the fastest photo printer, but for all other jobs the Epson WorkForce 840 excels. We recommend this multifunction inkjet for its high-quality prints, rapid text and graphics speeds, easy-to-navigate control panel, and abundance of features that include autoduplexing, an ADF, wired and wireless networking, and support for mobile printing.
Excellent all-in-one printer!
I rate this product a 5, because, despite the cost of ink, it really is easy to use, hassle free, and saves me a lot of trouble and time that I had experience with other printers before.
Who this printer is for: Office or home office users who need a helping hand from a machine to speed things along, automatize, and network certain processes so you can focus on other things after giving your command. Also, those unconcerned with the potential large costs of ink; if you print a lot.
What an office printer should be
I really could go on, it's a beautiful machine and would work well in an office or a busy home. One other thing to note is that the Epson WorkForce line of printers unlike the Epson Artisan line (like the Artisan 835 for example) doesn't have CD/DVD printing and it uses 4 colors of ink rather than 6 (this means less consumables to buy and keep track of in exchange for wider color range, but it really isn't noticeable for most business use).
Initial impression: Wonderful!
The Epson Workforce is simply the BEST printer (so far) that we have ever owned. We could not be happier. If you need a two-sided, very fast printer, that is so, so, SO easy to set up and use, has outstanding ease of use, has two trays (great for envelopes in one, paper in the other) and many other features at a 'home business' affordable price, consider the Epson 840.
P.S. I called EPSON and they advised that there is an android app for wirelessly printing from your smartphone.
Epson's Offerings Cannot be Beat
This is the kind of printer I enjoy using. I hit print, and it works. This is also the kind of printer I could recommend to my less tech savvy friends and family and feel confident I won't be getting calls at 9pm asking me why their email isn't printing or why their printer isn't responding to wireless printing jobs. Epson, you have won yourself a new loyal customer. Between the 610, which almost had everything I wanted to the 840 that does, I just love these printers.
If you do a lot of printing for work, but you want the extras of a multifunction printer and the superior photo rendering of an inkjet, the Epson WorkForce 840 may be a good match because it can deliver all of the above. Though plain-paper print quality remains a shortcoming of most Epson printers, this unit handles it fairly well.
Fastest single-sided print speeds in its class
Epson is on the right track with the WorkForce 840. I like the increased paper capacity, the standard extra high capacity ink cartridges, the front side USB port and the large, easy to navigate touch panel. These are all important features in the SOHO and SMB markets.
Very good text but some other problems
So there it is. Wouldn't it be nice to combine the best of both. I must say that the Epson's inability to handle green, the loss of graphical detail, the lack of an out-of-paper message and worrisome paper adjusters are not small matters. The only question is how to measure those against the Canon's slower processing and slightly thicker, though very good text.
Easy setup, intuitive navigation
I was impressed to find that Epson has corrected the biggest flaws we found with the previous generation WorkForce 610; the paper capacity has been upgraded from 100 sheets to 250 sheets and the wireless setup was much easier to use this time around. I would still like to be able to use the front USB port to print PDF and documents and the draft mode wasn't much improved from the last generation, but those are minor complaints in the grand scheme of the WorkForce 635.
A strong all-around feature set
Overall, the reviewers seem to agree that the Epson WorkForce 635 performs well and offers a strong all-around feature set. While opinions are a little mixed when it comes to photo quality, thereâ??s a general consensus that this printer would be a solid acquisition for a small business or home office.
Affordable print prices
The Epson WorkForce 635 might be a slow-to-print printer when it comes to printing snapshot photos and heavy graphics documents, but the affordable print prices and double-sided printing confirms the office compatibility for the printer and certainly gets our approval.
On-board LCD for previews
Again, AIO printers are pretty boring and unsightly but, thanks to Epsonâ??s improvements and the general impression that this is a more polished and better product than previous 600 series printers. It is a good, general purpose printer for folks who need to do some photo printing but will mostly be spitting out B&W text with the occasional color page.
Great Printer and Price!
Overall, there is nothing I don't like about this printer and it definitely beats the past printers I have owned. From its sleek black design and size to its fast, high quality printing, the Epson NX625 really does an awesome job, especially for the price! I also found that the multi-pack of color ink is about $30 so it doesn't cost really any more than other color cartridges. It is nice though to replace just one color if for example you print a lot of yellow, cyan, or magenta.
Fast at printing and copying text documents
Unlike most basic small- or home-office MFPs, the NX625 offers mostly cheap inks and some impressive performance. Unlike most basic small- or home-office MFPs, the NX625 offers mostly cheap inks and some impressive performance. Fast, capable, and overshadowed by its detachable tablet control panel, this MFP offers a unique extra that may justify its price. The 'wow' factor of the Genesis's vertical profile and camera-based scanner compensates somewhat for the pricey inks.
Fast at printing and copying text documents
If your home-office scanning and copying needs are generally limited to single-page documents, you'll find the Epson Stylus NX625 a well-rounded MFP with satisfactory output quality and ink costs. But we still wish that users could scan to a computer from the control panel.
Two-sided printing works flawlessly
The Epson Stylus NX625 is a lower mid-cost all-in-one wireless printer. At 15 ppm (black/white) and 7.2 ISO ppm (color), Epson promotes this printer as the world's fastest all-in-one. There is also automatic two-sided printing at speeds of 7.6 ISO ppm (black/white) and 4.6 ISO ppm (color).
Great photo prints
The Epson Stylus NX625 is basically the same printer as the Epson Stylus NX515, with built-in duplexing and updated WiFi. That's not an insult; the NX515 was an excellent printer and a best bet, though the 625's advanced features will help it steal that slot. The NX625 is cheap as well--I've seen it online for just over $100. As always, you can count on photos having excellent color depth and being dry when they come out. A good buy and a great gift. Epson Stylus NX515.
