Guide Review – Epson WorkForce 310 Color Inkjet Printer
Manufacturers who make color inkjet printers should find out any advantage in other to distinguish their units which are at entry level from other printers which have similar functionality and prices. And it is to notice what is not included, not what is. This WorkForce 310 includes loads of great functionality and there are just a few pieces missed.
The missing pieces here are an LCD screen and a built-in duplexer.
But you will find what comes with this WorkForce 310 is great. First, it is the DURABrite inks. This kind of inks helps your prints become dry to the touch. DURABrite inks do not soak deeply (you know, even when you use cheap copy papers). You will have great-looking color prints (especially when it comes to photo printing). Moreover, this Epson uses 2 black ink tanks. This will allow more printing in between changing cartridges ( in case most people print more black-and-white than color pages).
You will be glad when you find out that the WorkForce 310 printer’s black-and-white print speed and its quality can be compared with laser printers. This Epson is really fast, with black-and-white text pages coming out in an average of about 4s, and when it comes to 4 graphics-intensive pages, it takes about 30s each. Color prints can look great. By the way, you may have to wait for a while. It takes about more than 3 minutes for a 4 x 6 photo to come out. You know, the cheaper Canon Pixma 3300 can do this faster.
