Epson B-510DN Business Color Inkjet Printer Review - PCWorld

 

The Epson B-510DN color inkjet printer could be the first crossover success, besting its own cohort--as well as many lower-end color lasers--in speed and cost per page. All this talent comes at a high initial price ($599 as of 06/28/2010). But if you...

Ink cartridges sell at rock-bottom prices

Very expensive purchase price

Businesses interested in a color laser should look at this alternative before they buy: It's fast, very cheap to use, and can print better photos.

Epson B-510DN

 

As intriguing as a laser-class inkjet may sound, that's not the most interesting aspect of the B-510DN. What really grabs my attention is its extraordinarily low cost per page.

Extraordinarily low cost per page. Laser-class speed. High paper capacity. Duplexer

Although output quality is good enough for most business use, it is sub-par overall at the printer's default settings

The Epson B-510DN offers laser-class speed and a lower cost per page (based on claimed yield and ink price) than most inkjets or lasers.

Fast, cheap color document printing is the Epson B-510DN's strength. Reviews say it beats many color laser printers in this regard. Using the lower-quality default print settings, you'll spend about 1 cent per black-and-white page and 3.5...

Good document print quality, very fast at lower quality settings, cheap per-page ink costs, ethernet port for network sharing

Mixed photo quality, auto duplexer sometimes jams, duplexer and highest-quality print settings are slow, fairly large and loud

Review: Epson B-510DN business printer

 

Businesses interested in a color laser should look at this alternative before they buy: It's fast, very cheap to use, and can print better photos.

The B-510DN’s design is efficient rather than aesthetic. The front ink-cartridge bay makes replacing consumables a snap, but it protrudes awkwardly from the unit’s face. The control panel is simple, with a two-line monochrome LCD and a few buttons...

Epson B-510DN

 

If you don't need true laser-quality text, this moderate-duty-cycle small-business inkjet is hard to beat for fast, low-cost color printing.

Unusually low cost per page for color printing; fast print speeds; built-in duplexer; 500-sheet paper tray; Ethernet port

Printed text isn't quite laser-quality; small two-line LCD; lacks Wi-Fi

If color print costs are a key factor for your organization, you should strongly consider the Epson B-510DN. Note the tradeoffs, however, especially if you need laser-quality text. If you already have a monochrome laser printer, you could place both...

Excellent business-class printer

 

1. Speed - this printer cranks out everything from plain-text docs to high-res prints on glossy photo paper in a hurry ; 2. This printer can auto-duplex on legal as well as letter paper ; 3. The ink carts have extremely high yield... base units are...

The only con is the price - it's notably more expensive than others in its class, but the performance and reliability I've experienced have made the purchase price worth it for my usage
