Summary: If you’re looking for a wireless all-in-one for your home office or small business and speed is a top priority, the $199 Epson WorkForce 600 should be at the top of your list. Just be warned that you’ll sacrifice some print quality, particularly when it comes to photos. For the best quality, go with the $199 Canon Pixma MX860 or our Editors’ Choice, the $199 Kodak ESP 7, which offers good photo quality and inexpensive supplies.
Summary: While it may not be the smallest multifunction printer on the block, the Epson WorkForce 600 is certainly more useful than many of its more basic competitors. I really like the inclusion of Wi-Fi, since this really frees up the utility of this printer. It’s great that the communication is two-way as well, so all scans can be sent wirelessly to my computer and all print jobs can be sent wirelessly back to the Epson.
Pros: A comprehensive home office solution, Built-in card reader and USB port, Wi-Fi connectivity, Decent print speed and quality, Great value at around $149
Cons: Ink cartridges can be expensive, Somewhat bulky compared to some other MFPs, No photo preview on LCD
Conclusion: The Epson WorkForce 600 combines impressive features (fast speed) with some limitations (low paper capacity), so although it's an attractive choice, it falls just short of being a slam-dunk winner.
Pros: Fast. Wired and wireless network support. Prints and scans over a network. Standalone fax machine and copier.
Cons: Subpar text quality. Paper capacity is only 100 sheets. Can't fax directly from a PC.
