Nice product, but not great at printing solid colors.

Summary: I am a graphic designer and was looking to replace my 10-yr-old HP Deskjet when I purchased the Epson Workforce 840. There are a lot of things to like about this printer -- it was easy to set up, very user-friendly, and prints very fast.
Summary: Unboxed printer which was packaged very well to protect from shipping damage. Examined quality of product and was surprised by the flimsy paper trays. I will not be surprised when these break. Installation instructions appeared straight forward.
OUTSTANDING functionality. Not so stellar print quality.

Summary: It is hard to give this printer a bad review because the functionality is amazing. I absolutely loves the "no hands" two sided printing. The dual trays are awesome for a small office. We leave one loaded with printer paper, and the other loaded with business sized envelopes.
Summary: BACKGROUND: The Epson Workforce 840 is my first Epson printer - all of my previous printers have been from HP. While this is my first personal multi-function printer, I have used commercial grade units at work.
Good for Windows users. Not so good for Mac users.

Summary: For the sake of comparison, I have a Canon PIXMA MX870 multifunction inkjet with wireless connectivity that I'm using as a benchmark on the Epson WorkForce 840, since they're competitive products in the same segment.
Have a work around, now. (formerly Good for PCs, Bad for Macs)

Summary: Mac work around for wireless printer function: 1. Install drivers -- if you are using it, you already have done this step. 2. You need the information about your network connection. Settings > network settings > network connection > print report. From this report you need the IP address.
Summary: I bought this all-in-one for a home office. I'd hoped it would be versatile enough to handle printing and scanning. It does - sort of. I'm not entirely unsatisfied but it's not the solution I'd hoped for - and didn't find out until I'd unpacked the thing, plugged it in and started into the manual.
