Epson WorkForce 40 Reviews

Electronicsme reviews the Epson WorkForce 40 and writes;
“If you’re in the market for a shared home or small office document printer, the WorkForce 40 makes an excellent choice. It has the speed to keep up with the demands of most small office environments, yet is available at a very reasonable price. The high capacity black ink cartridge is a time and money saver, and the laser text output mode is best in class.”

Printercomparison reviews the Epson WorkForce 40 and writes;
“The WorkForce 40 was actually better at color prints and photos than it was at printing straight black and white text. The colors were good even on normal copy paper and the photo quality was decent.”

PCWorld reviews the Epson WorkForce 40 and writes;
“Like its performance, the WorkForce 40’s features include more letdowns than highlights. Connectivity is versatile, offering you USB, ethernet, and Wi-Fi. In contrast, the paper capacity is low: The rear, vertical input tray holds a maximum of 100 sheets of letter-size paper (you have to feed legal one sheet at a time).”

Epson Workforce 40, | Rating: ★★★★★

Epson WorkForce is better than advertised, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I recently purchased the Epson WorkForce 40 Weireless Color Printer and have to say that I am impressed. My daughter uses it for college and can be anywhere in our house and print to it. It has quick, quality printing.” – by Liz Maki

Excellent Performance and Functionality, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I purchased this printer for my daughter who is away at college. I had Amazon ship it directly to her and she set it up herself to print wireless from her iBook. She had no problems with configuration, and had it working in no time. She’s telling me that its amazingly fast and that its perfect for printing out her papers and assignments. We haven’t had to purchase any extra ink yet so I don’t know how fast it consumes ink. But so far she’s really happy with it.” – by Bruce Selzler

Great value in a wireless printer, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“This printer functions exactly as advertised. The size and look of the printer fits any modern decor, from the office to the den. Setup requires the use of a USB cable, which is thoughtfully provided in the package. Setup is straightforward and operation is slick. Definately worth the price. “ – by David L. Sowers

Excellent + Seamless Mac interface | Rating: ★★★★☆
“Set-up to my Mac Airport Extreme wireless hub was so easy. INCLUDED in the box is an ethernet cable that can be detached after set up to go wireless . My desktop and notebook speak to this printer without hitches. Everything about this set up was so much easier than when I tried it with an HP. Print is very crisp…” – by RSD48

A Couple Important Details, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I’m a complete novice when it comes to networking in general and of most details under the hood of Windows specifically, and it took me probably about 45 minutes to get the wireless printing up and running. The instruction book is very precise except that there are 2-3 missing steps between steps 5 and 6. (The steps occur on screen but are not printed in the book.) Luckily it wasn’t difficult to figure out which buttons to press to make it work…” – by Kevin Barrack

Great for the price! | Rating: ★★★★☆
“Extremely impressed for the price. Very fast and clear printing. Quick and simple to set up. Most impressed with speed of delivery – I ordered it about 3pm in the afternoon, and it arrived next day at 9am – wow!” – by D. Burke

Above Average Low Cost Small Office Inkjet, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“…Black and white text printing is crisp and clean. The color photos I have printed look like what I would expect from a personal level inkjet printer, in other words very good without being quite professional grade…” – by P. Schmidt
