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.
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: 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...
Summary: The Epson Workforce 635 is almost perfect, if you want an ultrafast all in one this is the one to get, what I mean by almost, is because I previously owned a HP all in one and the software was nicer,faster and easier. I would definitely buy the Epson instead of the HP but, the software on the Epson could be better.
Summary: I've been wanting a printer that connects to my network via wifi. It's really a drag hauling a printer around to different computers, finding a place to plug it in, etc. I wasn't sure about this printer however, since it's an all-in-one. In the past I've found that all-in-one means it does a number of different tasks, and does them all poorly. The WorkForce 635 was really easy to set up. The instructions are very clear.
