Pros: Fast, good color & excellent B/W printing. Easy set up (NOT GOOD FOR MAC OSX LION!!)
Cons: Epson/Apple need to play ball better. Right now, if you bought an Apple with Lion pre-installed, don't bother with this printer. If you're upgrading, make sure it all works BEFORE you update and then keep your fingers crossed!
Cons: Frustrating Lion support. I nearly packed this up and took it back to staples too (as the other review states). However, I called them and they were able to walk me through a kludgey process--but it works!
Summary: The Epson Workforce 635 advertises double-sided scanning through the automatic document feeder. Unfortunately, my experience is that the feature only works if the paper is perfect...any wrinkle or crease in the paper and it will jam when it tries to scan the back side. I ran the same set of documents through this Epson Workforce 635 and my friend's new HP C410 and the Epson jammed every time while the HP jammed only about 10% of the time.
Summary: Overall, this is a very capable printer of delivering on its stated features, however, the menus and operation leave much to be desired. If you're mainly interested in using this in a home office, it makes a good choice, however for using as a photo-printer, or in a heavily used office environment, you should look for something more robust. Physical Design - 3.5 stars ============================== I like that the power cord doesn't have any brick attached to it.
Summary: I purchased this printer based on the great reviews I read and on the recommendation of a friend who is an Epson printer lover. I myself have always purchased Hewlett Packard printers and have never had a problem but since retirement, I found myself constantly running back and forth to Staples to make copies and saw the need to purchase an all-in-one printer that would allow me to make copies and give me the ability to scan as well.
Summary: This review is based on a comparison of the WorkForce 635 with the Canon Pixma MX870 at the two local Staples today, doing color and black and white copying on plain paper. Is the copier output a good surrogate for printer output (via a computer)? I thought it would be and, as a follow up, Epson technical support says so too. To be clear, I went for the purpose of seeing the 635, with the hope that it was the printer I am looking for vs. the Canon.
