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: 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.
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: My primary use for this is scanning receipts daily with only occasional printing. The printing is great. I can't tell the difference between this and any other inkjet on the market and I like them all. The scanning is a bit of a pain though. There's nothing to hold up the top part of the scanner (which is heavy because of the auto doc feeder) while you position your document. I don't like the Epson scanner software much.
