Description

The Epson WorkForce 520 All-in-One Printer, like its brother which is the Epson Workforce 610, offers many useful features despite its inexpensive price. It prints fast and your text as well as graphics will have a really good looking. Photo printing quality is excellent, but you may have to wait because it prints photos a bit slowly. Small and home businesses will like it because it comes with built-in wireless and an ADF. However, its single paper input as well as its manual duplexing feature may be not very attractive.

Guide Review – Epson WorkForce 520 All-in-One Printer

Epson says that the Workforce 520 is the fastest multifunctional printer. At draft quality, the 1st  page can come out after 6 seconds. Your Word document which has 3 pages can come out after only 19s. These speeds are really competitive.  One more thing, print quality at draft speeds is very good. Fonts look dark and decent, though the colors are washed out naturally.

When switching to normal quality, things slow down a bit. Your first page will come out in about 8s and your total document will come out in 24s. Although it does not reach to 15 pages / minute as what Epson has claimed, these speeds are really fast and competitive, you know.

Epson printers are typically good at print quality. The Workforce 520 is not an exception. This printer gives you laser-like print quality. There will be nearly no bleed into cheap photo paper. Fonts are still sharp and clear even at draft mode.

Colors are uniformly excellent (of course except for printing at draft mode). Your color photos will look superb. The Workforce 520 is set to “Best Photo Quality” mode by default. At this mode, it takes up to 3:20 to finish printing a 4 x 6 photo. You can switch to “Normal Photo Quality” and have your photo printed out in just 1:38. Honestly, you may hardly see the difference between those 2 prints. They are both richly colored as well as spectacularly sharp. That is a really nice accomplishment for Epson!

The Workforce 520 also offers a scanner which has 3 scanning modes. “Office Mode” can simplify document scanning. “Home Mode” offers you many photo-related features. “Professional Mode” can give complete scanner control. A fax and a copier are also built in.

Pros

  • Its speed is fast
  • It offers built-in wired network and built-in wireless network
  • It has very good print quality. You will have excellent photos
  • There is an ADF ( automatic document feeder ) which can store 30 sheets of papers

Cons

  • It is a bit slow when it comes to photo printing
  • It has single paper input
  • The LCD screen is tiny and dark

Canon Pixma MP480 All-in-One Printer Review Buy

For just around $100, the Canon Pixma MP480 All-in-One Printer is a good choice for those who are looking for a photo printer but do not intend to use it a lot. If you need more options such as ADF ( document feeder which is automatic ) and paper trays, you may have to check out some of other printers which are more expensive.

Guide Review – Canon Pixma MP480 All-in-One Printer

The Canon Pixma MP480 All-in-One Printer will impress you first by its appearance. It is much nicer than many other multifunctional printers out there. It is a small printer with rounded edges. And it has a futuristic-looking white. Just like other Pixma printers, the Pixma MP480 is cleverly designed to be as space-saving as possible. So it will not take too much space on your desktop. You know, its LCD monitor and its paper output tray will just pop up when needed. In addition, there is an optional Bluetooth adapter. You can print from a cell phone which is Bluetooth-enabled.

About print quality, you will be glad because it will give you excellent prints. If you choose normal quality, your 4 x 6 photo will come out just under one minute with vivid and sharp colors. The ink will be completely dry and the quality will be comparable to a lot of dedicated photo printers on the market.

Print speeds are acceptable. At draft mode, a monochrome page can come out in about 3 seconds, color one takes about 5 seconds. In case you choose normal quality, it will take a few more seconds to finish printing. This Canon printer has only 2 ink tanks but it still can give you prints with great look. This also means you will spend less replacing these 2 tanks ( when needed ) than 5 or 6 tanks which are used by other inkjet multifunctional printers.

You can load papers in the back of this printer. But it just can store 100 pages and printing duplex are manual, so you should reconsider if you are looking for a printer for your busy home office.

In general, this printer is a good choice and it is quite competitive in its price range. If you need a small printer with good print quality and acceptable print speed, and you don’t mind its noisy warm-up time, the Pixma MP480 is very suitable. But remember this isn’t a printer that is meant for heavy use.

Pros

  • It is a small, lightweight printer
  • It gives you good prints
  • You will find setting it up is easy

Cons

  • You may find it is a bit noisy
  • It does not come with an ADF ( automatic document feeder )
  • Paper input tray is not included

 

 

 

Selphy CP780 Photo Printer Review

Description

With a very reasonable price, the Canon Selphy CP780 Photo Printer is a really great choice. You will have your photos printed out with rich colors and fantastic sharpness. There is an optional battery and Bluetooth adapter ( which are $130 ). So, it is not easily for you to bring this printer from place to place, but in terms of price as well as print quality, this Canon printer is excellent.

Selphy CP780 Photo Printer Review Buy

  • This is a compact color photo printer
  • It prints photos which are 4” x 6”
  • Its LCD screen is 2.5”
  • Many kinds of media cards are supported
  • It can connect to a PC via USB connection
  • It uses custom paper and custom ink ribbons

Guide Review – Selphy CP780 Photo Printer

The Canon Selphy CP780 Printer, like the Sony DPP-FP97 Digital Photo Printer ( which is a much more expensive one ) , is a dye-sublimation printer which requires special paper as well as special ink ribbon. You can print from many types of media and the print quality is good.

You will be guided through the printing process by Canon’s Selphy software. It’s very handy when you want to add frames, clip arts and text balloons to your photos. However, you may find a bit unpleasant because it talks out quite loud. Moreover, while your print job is underway, this software may offer print ideas which are tantalizing ( such as printing a calendar ) – without explaining how to do that. This Canon’s LCD screen is smaller than the 3.5” one of the Sony DPP-FP97. It isn’t tiltable and it cannot connect directly to a television, either.

Because this is a dye-sublimation printer, after coming out of the printer, your photos will be pulled back in for a while for the Selphy CP780 to add new colors into them. Your prints will have astoundingly deep and rich colors. Honestly, they may be the sharpest printed photos you have ever seen. Total time for the Selphy CP780 to finish printing a 4 x 6 photo is just about 1 minute. However, images are slightly cropped, especially on their edges. So you will risk losing a part of your picture if your images are off center.

Pros

  • Its print quality is excellent
  • Its price is inexpensive
  • It is very compact

Cons

  • There is no battery
  • Bluetooth adapter is optional
  • Your photos may have some unintended cropping

Description

The HP OfficeJet 4500 All-in-one printer is about $129.99 ( if you do not want wireless, it will be cheaper ). In term of speed, it is not too fast to be regarded as a demon. But when it comes to the price, it can be a really good deal. It offers built-in wireless and an ADF. You can use it as a fax, also. It can print duplex manually. Your text documents look okay and pages printed duplex may bleed through. However, you will have wonderful color photos which look lush.

Guide Review – HP Officejet 4500 All-in-One Printer

The HP Officejet 4500 has a reasonable price but it offers many useful features. Built-in wireless, built-in fax as well as a 20 – page automatic document feeder are offered. It also has a manual duplexer and there is a plain interface. However, this printer does not support memory cards.

You may have to wait up to 1:11 to have your 4 x 6 photo printed out. But you will be pleased with the result. Colors will be true and lush and the sharpness will impress you.

This HP printer has a long warm up time. When you print via a wireless network, your first page of a 3-page Word file will come out in 23 seconds. The whole document can come out after 50 seconds. But when it gets going, the average time for each page to come out can be about 14s. A PDF which as 4 pages will come out after 1:35 ( around 32 seconds for the 1st page ). So each page will take around 21 seconds.

About print quality, you will have clean-looking black fonts. Still, you can notice some bleed. Pages printed duplex may upset you. Maybe you should spend some more money on high-quality printing paper.

The scanner works well when you use the Window interface. However, you may have to do a lot of set-up while you may not find out relevant information from the provided digital guide.

Pros

  • Photo print quality is excellent
  • You will find that it is easy to set up
  • It has built-in wireless
  • Its price is very competitive for a multifunctional printer

Cons

  • There may be some bleed-through when you print duplex
  • The first page may come out a bit longer than average
  • Memory cards are not supported

HP Deskjet F4280 All-in-One Printer Review Buy

The HP Deskjet F4280 All-in-one Printer is just about $50. For this money, it is hard to complain about this HP printer. This HP is a multifunctional printer which does a great job on monochrome and color graphics. You will have your photos printed out with excellent quality as well. However, you cannot use it as a fax and it is designed only for casual use. But don’t worry, it can perform as requested. In case you use it a lot, replacing ink tanks might eliminate any initial cost savings.

Guide Review – HP Deskjet F4280 All-in-One Printer

The Deskjet F4280 is a good choice for users who are looking for a printer which is suitable for casual home use, especially when its price is really reasonable. Because of the low price, it lacks a fax, an ADF, an LCD screen as well as a large paper tray. However, you will find its ink lights ( which show you the amount of ink remaining ) really helpful. Its weight is just about 10 pounds, but it does its job really well.

At draft mode, this HP printer can print up to 26 pages / minute. When switching to normal quality, the first monochrome page can come out after 28 seconds, and each following page takes around 8 seconds. You will find large fonts ( such as 72 point ) still have an excellent look under magnifying class. Edges and lines will be crisp and sharp. It takes about one minute and thirty nine seconds for the HP Deskjet F4280 to finish printing three pages which contain many colorful graphics. The printer uses only 2 ink tanks but the colors are remarkably nuanced. A 4 x 6 colorful photo takes about 28 seconds to come out. The greens are true to the original. However, you may find other colors a bit less vivid than the original. Using “photo optimizer” can improve this.

About scanning, you may have to wait because it takes up to 1:10 for a color graphic page to be scanned. It expects you to use “Photosmart”. In case you do not use that software suite, changing options ( for example: scanning to a PDF) can become tricky.

Pros

  • The price is very inexpensive
  • It can give sharp prints, even when you print large-sized pages

Cons

  • There are some muted colors when it comes to photo printing
  • Its scan speed is quite slow

Guide Review – Canon Pixma MX330 All-in-One Color Inkjet Printer

In case your home office needs a productivity boost, the Pixma MX330 printer can help. But not just that, the Pixma MX330 which is just $109, can be a really good choice for any users who are finding a multifunctional printer at reasonable price.

Initial warm-up may take some time. The 1st  page of your Word document which has 6 pages may take just a minute. After that, it takes about 11s for this printer to print each color page ( if you choose normal setting ). In case your Pixma has already warmed up, your 1st page will need just 26s to come out. These numbers are not really record-breaking. However, in this $100 price range, the Canon Pixma MX300’s speed is very competitive.

About print quality, monochrome print quality is good. Your text will look clear and sharp. Colors on your graphics pages will looke true. You know, Canon’s Color FINE Ink in the 2 ink cartridges provide nuanced colors to your photos. It takes just under one minute for a  4 x 6 color photo to come out. Colors are very good. But if you require something better, you can try the Epson Artisan 800. The Artisan will give you lighter and sharper colors.

Except for the small LCD screen which is not very convenient when you need to do some basic photo editing, other functions of the Canon Pixma MX300 all work smoothly. You can use it as a copier, a fax and a scanner. However, you will need to sacrifice a lot of space in your room because of its big size ( it’s an all-in-one, you know ). So remember to consider carefully whether you really need an all-in-one.

Pros

  • It has a reasonable price
  • It offers good print quality
  • It is an all-in-one. You can use it as a copier, a fax and a scanner.

Cons

  • It prints duplex manually
  • It isn’t networkable

Epson Stylus NX625 All-in-One Printer Review Buy

The Epson Stylus NX625 All-in-One Printer is quite similar to the Epson Stylus NX515. They both offer built-in duplexer as well as updated WiFi. That is not an insult; NX515 is one of the most excellent printers as well as one of the best bets, though NX625’s features which are advanced can help it steal that slot. Moreover, the Stylus NX625 is cheaper, just about over $100. And as always, there is no need to worry when it comes to photo print quality. The Epson Stylus NX625 will give your prints excellent color depth. Moreover, the ink will be totally dry. This can be regarded as a good buy as well as a great gift.

Guide Review – Epson Stylus NX625 All-in-One Printer

The Epson Stylus NX625 comes with many advanced features for not too much money. 802.11n WiFi is built in. There is an automatic duplexer. There are many on-board options for photo printing. And just like its brother, the Epson Stylus NX515 which is a bit cheaper, it size is small and it has a folding color LCD which is 2.5″. And its panel is relatively uncluttered. Its speed is fast, maybe it is a bit quicker than other printers which are in the same class. Epson calls the Stylus NX625 the fastest multifunctional printer in the world.

You can easily setup the wireless using the printer’s buttons or via the Web interface. But be prepared to wait because it may take a long time. After finishing this setting up, you can have your 3-page Word file printed out in around 37 seconds ( 15s for the 1st page, at normal quality ). 55 seconds is the time the  Stylus NX625 needs to print a Word file which has 4 pages, using its automatic duplexer.

Besides its speed, there are also many other reasons for you to bring this Epson home. First, its price is really reasonable. For just about $100, it can be a good investment if you are a home user. Buying it as a gift for students is also a good idea.

The Epson Stylus NX625 printer has a built-in duplexer. Although duplex printing is very convenient, you may find that the ink may saturate cheap paper, making your pages limp. So, Epson recommends that users should reduce the ink density. For example, reducing at least 25% when it comes to high-color pages is strongly recommended.  And don’t worry, this will not affect too much the print quality.

When it comes to photo printing, I am sure you will be pleased. You will have fantastic photos with great colors. Its sharpness can rival a lot of dedicated photo printers out there. Your 4 x 6 photo can come out after 1:12 at normal quality mode. The ink will be completely dry and it even won’t run when it’s wet. Colors will be clear and rich. In addition, you can use the feature Photo Restoration to quickly copy a washed-out photo which is really old, then print it with restored colors. This is really a helpful feature when you need to scan your old photos without spending too much time on serious restoration software.

Pros

  • It will give you great photo prints
  • Its speed is fast
  • It offers you 802.11b/g/n WiFi connection

Cons

  • Wireless setup time may be lengthy
  • It does not included a fax

Description

The Epson WorkForce 60 Color Inkjet Printer is suitable for those who like a fast printer, need prints with laser-like quality but do not want to spend too much money purchasing a laser printer. This printer is a basic color inkjet one. When you choose normal quality, it prints really fast. When you choose high quality, it gives you laser-like prints with clear and sharp text and great photos. It offers a built-in duplexer and 802.11n built-in Wireless. Otherwise, you will not find any whistles or bells on the Workforce 60. No media slots, scanner, copier, ADF or multiple paper trays are included, either.

  • According to Epson, it can print 15 black pages / minute and 7.1 colorful pages / minute. When printing duplex, those numbers are 7.4 and 4.7
  • It can connect to the Ethernet.  802.11n built-in wireless is supported
  • Print resolution is up to 5760 x 1440 dpi

Guide Review – Epson WorkForce 60 Color Inkjet Printer

The Epson Workforce 60 Color Inkjet is a basic inkjet printer. You can’t use it as a fax machine, a copier or a scanner, although its appearance may make you think it is a multifunctional printer. It is just around $100 but built-in networks as well as built-in duplexer are included. By the way, it lacks media slots as well as an LCD display.

So, what the Workforce 60 does is to print. And I am sure you will be pleased. Epson claims that this printer is the fastest 2-sided printer in the world while it also gives us black texts with laser-like quality. In fact, you’ll have your documents come out surprisingly fast at normal quality ( just one minute for a Word document which has 4 pages ). When switching the print mode to higher quality, you will have laser-like prints but that will slow things down considerably ( each page may take up to 39 seconds ).

Usually, duplex printing may tend to soak your pages with ink and this will leave pages floppy and damp. And it needs time for the ink on the first side to be dry before the other side of the page can be printed. So, it will take a long time. But in this case, you have no need to worry. We all know that DURABrite Ultra ink of Epson dries instantly. So, your duplex pages can come out faster. Your text printed at high quality under magnifying glass does come close to rivalling a laser printer. At lower quality and draft quality, your black text looks acceptable.

Most of the Epson’s home users are satisfied with the normal quality. And about print speeds, this Workforce printer is surprisingly fast. Three minutes and twenty eight seconds is all it needs to finish printing a PDF file which has 43 pages ( under 5s / page ). Fonts look good at this quality level but of course it cannot rival what a laser printer can do. The ink will not bleed into pages and your color graphics will look good.

Epson printers always give us great color photos. The Epson Workforce 60 is not an exception. Images will be sharp, colors will be very nuanced as well as realistic. Your 4 x 6 photo will take about one minute to finish. Prints will come out totally dry. You will find it not tacky. And in case the ink gets wet, it will not bleed or run.

To sum up, at this price range, you have many options which are multifunctional printers having the same size of this Workforce. They may be a bit slower and their quality may not as good as the Workforce 60. If you are looking for an inkjet printer which has great speed and laser-like quality, the WorkForce 60 Color Inkjet is one of the best choices. In case you prefer an all-in-one printer with acceptable print quality, you may want to take a look at other Epson ones.

Pros

  • It has built-in wired and 802.11n built-in wireless networks.
  • Its print quality is great with excellent photos.
  • It offers a built-in duplexer which helps duplex printing become fast.

Cons

  • No media slots are included
  • It is a basic printer. You can hardly find out any other functions beside printing.

Guide Review – Epson B-310N Color Inkjet Printer

One of the most impressive things of the Epson B-310N is its speed. You will be surprised because your documents will come out almost as fast as what happens when you use a laser printer. Moreover, if you once used a laser printer, you can easily recognize that this Epson is much more quiet. If you choose the mode “Power Save”, your first page will come out within 17 seconds. In case your printer has finished warming up already, this time will be shorter, just around 6 seconds for the first page and 3.5s / each page later. A PDF document which has four pages takes an average of about 6-7s / page.

About print quality, the Epson B-310N uses DuraBrite ink which can leave color graphics a clear and true look. Black fonts will look sharp and excellent at any size. You won’t notice any bleed into the paper. This B-310N is set “Fast Print” Mode ( also called Draft Mode ) by default. When switching that off, you can barely see the different in print quality. Actually, color graphics can be a bit better but the speed is slower.

Although it is an office printer, it does a great job on photo printing. And again, the Epson B-310N Color Inkjet is fast. It takes just 40 seconds for this printer to print a 4 x 6 photo, using the rear paper tray. You will find this printer handle paper really well. There is a big paper cassette which can hold 500 letter sized sheets. There is also a rear sheet feeder used for envelopes, labels, photos and so on.

You may be disappointed when knowing that this Epson printer lacks a lot of built-in options. Built-in duplexer is optional. There is no slot for memory cards. There is no scanner or copier, or wireless printing option. Having those options would add value to the Epson B-310N printer which is a high-end one. Anyway, its quality is still top notch as well as the speed is remarkable.

Pros

  • Its speed is fast
  • Your prints will have excellent quality
  • It offers large paper cassettes
  • It is networkable

Cons

  • There is no duplex option
  • Memory card and wifi are not supported

The WorkForce 30 of Epson is a good color inkjet printer at the entry level. If you don’t need a printer which can do everything such as copying, faxing or scanning, the Workforce 30 is a good choice.

You will have nothing to complain when in term of speed. Its print speeds are excellent. Your first monochrome page can come out just in 30 seconds after you turn on your printer. It takes about 20s / page whe you print a PDF document which has four pages.
