Summary: Our flatbed scanner died and my daughter's new MacBook Pro didn't support my ancient HP. Plus the kids were always whining about the slowness of the old HP. After much research I settled on the Epson Workforce 635 as the best balance of features for my needs. In particular, the things I like: - Fast start-up (typically the first page starts printing after 10 seconds of warm-up coming off a long idle period) - Plain text pages are printing about 20 per minute (haven't...

Summary: I haven't had a working scanner since the very late 90s. I am somewhat amazed by how inexpensive these all in one devices are. It's nice to have a home scanner again. And this thing does it all. I've never had a wireless printer, so it's really nice to not have to run up to the office every time I want to print. It's even nicer to not have to worry about physically hooking my laptop up to the printer. The setup was self explanatory, very easy.
Comparison of the Workforce 840 and 635 printers - both are very useful multifunction printers for the home or office

Summary: NOTE: While this review is officially posted under the Workforce 635, I've had a chance to try BOTH the 635 and the 840, and have been impressed with both of them. Since the products are linked in Amazon's system, this review appears under each, so I thought I'd write a bit about both of them here. Both are very solid mid-range printers, packed with useful features that would be ideal for the small office. They're both fast, and make high quality prints.
Summary: After eight months of use, I feel I can now write this review, and do so favorably. I waited because I also have a Hewlitt Packard all-in-one, which updates seemingly every day but never works how I need it to work, and I bought that after finally pitching my Dell All-in-One in the trash where it belonged since the second day I owned it.
Detailed Review of the Epson WorkForce 635 and Epson Customer Service

Summary: I received the Epson Workforce 635 from Amazon 4 days ago. The retail box arrived packaged nicely inside a large Amazon brown box. It came with a power cord and a standard telephone cord for the fax machine. No USB cord was included. Un-boxing and setting up Epson WorkForce 635 with the provided "Extra High Capacity Ultra ink" cartridges was real easy. Since I was setting up this device to work with my wireless network, I did not need a USB cord (not included).
Summary: I bought this printer based upon reviews from Amazon and others. I'm a Mac user and was specifically excited about the idea of scanning a document at the printer and sending it to my computer as a PDF file. Alas, this is not possible. In order to get a PDF file on your Mac from this device's scanner you have 2 choices: (1) plug a USB drive into the printer and saved the scanned document to the drive, then plug the USB drive into your Mac; (2) place the document on the...
Epson Workforce 365 - A Disappointing Set Up Experience
J. Banner "BannerCA", Amazon
14 February 2011
Summary: I decided to purchase the Epson Workforce 365 based on the reviews I read. I had an attached Epson for a long time prior to this purchase and the printing quality was excellent as was the ease of set up and cost of ink. My current wireless is a Lexmark 4850 - it delivers great quality printing - but is costly to maintain due to the wasteful use of ink by the printer.
