I was recently asked to review an Epson WorkForce WF-3640, all-in-one printer. The gracious folks at Epson sent me a unit for review. The printer really does everything I want it to; print, copy, scan and fax. It connects to Wi-Fi and is very easy to set up and use.
One of the key features that I was looking for was the ability to easily print from my iPad and iPhone. The WF-3640 does that easily, as well as from my laptop and desktop. The Epson Connect feature basically allows you to print and share from anywhere, which is a definite plus. Here are some other great key features:
The unit has print speeds of 19 ISO ppm for black and 10 ISO ppm for color. It also automatically prints two-sided to save up to 50 percent of your paper! It also allows you to collate and remove punched holes or shadows.
The paper tray holds up to 500 sheets of paper, meaning you have to load it less frequently. And, there is a second rear tray for cardstock, envelopes and labels.
The WF-3640 features a 3.5” color LCD touch screen with gesture navigation, making all of the features on the unit easy to use.
The unit features PrecisionCore Inkjet technology which is a new printing technology using a revolutionary high-density print chip which can generate up to 40 million precise dots per second with astonishing accuracy, producing professional quality output at dramatic speeds.
Epson is also environmentally friendly, which I think is really great! According to the Epson website, the WF-3640 is equipped with these ECO features:
- Uses up to 70% less power than laser printers
- Save up to 50% on paper with automatic, two-sided printing / copying
- ENERGY STAR® qualified
- RoHS compliant
- Recyclable product
- Epson America, Inc. is a SmartWaySM Transport Partner
If you are in the market for a new printer, scanner, copier or fax machine for your home office, the WF-3640 is a great option. It’s compact and because of the Wi-Fi connection, you can place it anywhere throughout your home or office. The printing quality is great and it’s easy to set up with your established technology.
The WF-3640 is available online for $149.99 after an instant $50 rebate and qualifies for free ground shipping. The all-in-one printer includes four DURABrite ultra ink cartridges, an instruction manual, CD-ROM for setup and power cord. A USB cable is not included in the packaging, so if you aren’t using the Wi-Fi option you will need one of those.
Do you have an all-in-one device in your office? What are the biggest benefits? How does it make your work-life easier? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
