Epson WorkForce 840 All-in-One Printer

 

Generous 500-page paper capacity ; Fast at default settings on plain paper ; Inexpensive inks

Epson WorkForce 840 All-in-One Printer review: Epson WorkForce 840 All-in-One Printer

 

The Epson WorkForce 840 is the flagship model of the company's line of WorkForce all-in-one printers for small and home businesses. As such, it costs more than the average all-in-one at $299, but it also serves up a buffet of features. In addition to...

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 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.

Review: Epson WorkForce 840 multifunction printer

 

There's no skimping on this small-office MFP, which offers speed and paper capacity to spare, plus sharp output and affordable inks.

You can connect the WorkForce 840 via USB, ethernet, or Wi-Fi, and the machine is easy to install. Note that if you opt for "first time" setup, you'll have to wade through a lot of dialog boxes that step you through unpacking, removing tape, hooking up...

Ok, I get it – those of us with corporate environments enjoy the use of professional multifunction devices at the office.  Whether it's scanning that article out of the newspaper, printing your tax forms, or long edge binding that screenplay you've...

Everything a home office user would demand the Epson WorkForce 840 to do on a daily basis, it does well.  The slow scan/print for highest quality settings may be a deterrent for those with intense photo needs, but this shouldn't scare away most people.
