Backed by excellent print speed and a ton of useful features like auto-duplexing, wireless networking, and a suite of mobile printing services, this Epson WorkForce 845 is ideal for homes or offices with high-volume printing needs. I'm Justin Yu, Associate Editor for CNET.com. This is your first look at the Epson WorkForce 845 multifunction printer. So this device is best suited for users that need it all. Along with a standard printing, scanning, faxing, and copying functionality you get in most all-in-one machines, this guy also packs an 8-inch touchscreen control panel display, 2 adjustable input trays that can hold up to 500 total sheets of paper and you can connect it to a computer in a variety of ways. So let's take a quick tour of the machine. There's a 3.5-inch touchscreen nestled into the panel and you also get 2 media card slots below for printing directly from a digital camera. The software you need to power the printer is compatible with Mac and Windows, and the 845 is relatively compact and pretty easy to move around the office. Epson gives you a couple options for connectivity, but you'll get most use out of the Wi-Fi network because that means you'll also be able to use Epson's email print. So each 845 is equipped with its own unique email address. So when you're away from the printer, you can simply attach a document to an email, send it off to that address and the document will be waiting for you in the printer when you get home. So that's perfect for grandchildren that wanna send quick hardcopy photos to their grandparents, and you can use any device with an internet connection to send those print jobs. Epson also offers free versions of their Android and iPhone print apps that make it really easy to output your smartphone photos directly to the printer. But none of those features will be useful without the horsepower to back it up, and luckily, the Epson 845 does well with speed and quality. It topped the competition in 3 out of the 4 tests we put it through, and you won't be disappointed with the print quality either. So, based on all the extras you get and the money you'll save with its 5 separate ink tank cartridges, we certainly recommend the Epson WorkForce 845 for all your heavy-duty printing needs. I'm Justin Yu, you just took a first look at the Epson WorkForce 845 all-in-one printer. Thanks for watching.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Packed with features and able to blast more than 2,000 lumens of light in a large conference room, the Epson PowerLite 765c is worth the money if you want big projector power in a small package.
Epson WorkForce 845 All-in-One Printer Review
The good: The Epson WorkForce 845 excels in print speeds and output quality, with hardware working overtime in autoduplexing, wireless networking, and mobile printing support by way of Epson's suite of Connect mobile printing services.
The bad: Photo print speeds are slightly lower than for the average inkjet, and the packaging doesn't include the USB and Ethernet cables required for a tethered connection.
The bottom line: Though it's slightly more expensive than competing inkjet workhorses, we recommend the Epson WorkForce 845 for its refined design and Epson's Connect cloud-printing portfolio.
