Epson WorkForce 840 All-in-One Printer


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.

The Epson WorkForce 840 produces outstanding print quality in record time and offers an abundance of workhorse features, including autoduplexing, wireless networking, support for mobile printing, and easy setup for both USB and network connections

Minor annoyances include slow photo print speeds and the omission of USB and Ethernet cables

The 840 can print, copy, scan, and fax. It can scan to your PC or to e-mail. It can print from or scan to memory cards or USB keys. It can fax either from the printer's keyboard or from your PC (PC Fax). It can print or copy multiple pages onto a...

Great paper capacity. Spacious, responsive touch screen. Good range of all-in-one functions. Good value for the price

Slightly sub-par text and photo quality

The Epson WorkForce 840 All-in-One provides a good set of all-in-one functions and superior paper capacity for a small-office MFP, at a decent price.

Epson WorkForce 840


A $299.99 price on an all-in-one (AIO) inkjet printer is a clear signal that it's one of the manufacturer's top-of-the-line machines. At this price, you should get printing, copying, scanning, and faxing in exceptional quality at better-than-average...

Excellent scan, copy, print quality ; High paper capacity

Expensive ink ; No easy way to insert specialty paper or envelopes

This feature-packed, high-volume printer is also a very good scanner and copier. It's a great fit for busy small offices, though its ink costs may deter budget buyers.

Epson WorkForce 840 review


Highlights we can look forward to include the Epson WorkForce 840's plentiful paper handling and a touchscreen control panel. When matched against comparably well-equipped machines, the WorkForce 840 falls short of the HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus in...

Epson's WorkForce 840 All-in-One Printer is a $349 color inkjet multifunction printer (print/copy/scan/fax) for small offices. At that price, MFPs tend to offer a full array of features. In the WorkForce 840′s case, highlights include plentiful paper...

Generous 500-page paper capacity; fast at default settings on plain paper; inexpensive inks

No control-panel-to-PC scanning via Wi-Fi
