Epson WorkForce 520 All-in-One Printer

About.com

  • Summary: Like the Epson Workforce 610, the Workforce 520 color all-in-one printer offers a lot of printer for not much money. It prints very fast and leaves text and graphics looking good; if anything, photos fare even better, but take a long time to print. An automatic document feeder and built-in wireless make it a good bet for home and small businesses, while the single paper input and manual duplexing may give you second thoughts.
  • Pros: Fast, Built-in wired / wireless networking, Very good print quality, excellent photo quality, Automatic document feeder
  • Cons: Slow photo printing, Single paper input

  • Conclusion: Aimed at micro and home offices with light-duty printing needs, the Epson WorkForce 520 All-in-One is a little weak on output quality, but strong on office-centric features.
  • Pros: Prints, scans, and faxes even over a network. Ethernet and WiFi. Standalone copier and fax.
  • Cons: Low paper capacity. Although acceptable for most business uses, output quality is below par across the board.

  • Conclusion: The 520 came off to me as a good home office AIO for a customer on a budget.  Regularly priced at $129.99, Epson is currently offering the WorkForce 520 for $89.99.  For that, customers get three office capable devices, fast text print speeds, quality text prints, an increased paper capacity (from the ) and low energy consumption.
  • Pros: Fast print speeds (fastest in its class), Good text print quality, Low energy consumption
  • Cons: Must power off after print error, Scan software lacking, No front side USB
