>> Hey, it's Justin Yu, Associate Editor for cnet.com with a first look at the Epson Workforce 310. It's a true all-in-one device that can print, fax, copy and scan with really impressive output speeds and an affordable pricetag. Even a year ago, $99 could only get you a single-function inkjet, but now you can get this Epson printer for 99 bucks, which nets you a two-line LCD display, a 30-sheet auto document feeder up top for copying stacks of paper, five separate ink tanks that actually include two black cartridges, and even an ethernet port out back if you're using it in the office. We should note, though, that this printer does not do wireless. So if you're looking to cut down on cordage, you'll be happier somewhere else. That being said, if you do go with the 310, you'll be really impressed with its incredible output speed. The average rate for an inkjet printer is around seven pages per minute of text, so Epson's 13 pages per minute is a real boom for the printer for sure. Output quality is excellent as well and on par with what we've come to expect from Epson. If you want more details, check out my full review on cnet.com. But that's my time here. I'm Justin Yu. This is the Epson Workforce 310, and that sounds pretty good to me. ^M00:01:10 [ Music ]
Although the Epson WorkForce takes its time printing snapshot photos and graphics-heavy documents, this office-capable device earns my approval with affordable inks and cloud-printing features.
The Epson Stylus NX515 is a capable machine that will improve the efficiency of any office or work-at-home setup. Not only is it a lightning-fast all-in-one, but it also has a broader range of features than most other $150 AIOs. As long as you don't need a full creative software suite, the Epson Stylus NX515 will make a dependable sidekick to your computer.
Despite taking its time to print snapshot photos and graphics-heavy documents, the Epson WorkForce 635's affordable inks and double-sided printing confirm its office suitability and earn our approval.
Cloud access, Wi-Fi connectivity, and an external USB port in addition to the company's mobile printing app make the Epson WorkForce WF-2540 a good fit for smaller work-groups and start-ups with moderate printing needs.
Though slightly more expensive than competing inkjet workhorses, we recommend the Epson WorkForce 845 for its refined design and Epson's Connect cloud-printing portfolio.
The Epson WorkForce 840 costs a bit more than the average all-in-one inkjet, but its strong performance and long list of features more than justify its price and CNET's Editors' Choice Award.
Business shoppers and home users alike should check out this printer. Its cloud-printing features, double-sided prints, and the auto-document feeder on top make scanning and copying really easy. And its output speeds are impressive, too.
The Epson Stylus 800 produces impressive color prints, photos, and text documents, and it outpaces the competition in almost all of our speed tests. We're impressed by its performance, but hesitate to recommend this printer based on the poor build quality and error prone software.
The Epson CX7800 all-in-one is remarkably easy to use. Too bad its photo printing is merely average and its print speeds are ridiculously slow.
The HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus inkjet all-in-one offers the convenience of Web connectivity, but both business and home users will prefer the Epson WorkForce 840's reduced footprint and versatility.
Epson WorkForce 310 Review
The good: Best in class print speeds; inexpensive; all-inclusive control panel; five separate ink cartridges.
The bad: No Wi-Fi or autoduplexer; underwhelming photo quality.
The bottom line: The Epson WorkForce 310 is a cost-efficient all-in-one printer that gives you five separate ink cartridges with an automatic document feeder and a detailed control panel. Combine those features with its lightning-fast print speeds, and the WorkForce 310 is a worthwhile addition to your office arsenal.
