Epson WorkForce 840, A Great Multi-Function Printer

lokino, epinions.com
13 May 2013
  • Summary: Very highly recommended but make sure the output is acceptable to you. Excellent printer value because a full set of extra high capacity ink cartridges were included.
  • Pros: Looks, quality construction, very good performance, full set of ink included, no paper jams.
  • Cons: output on multi-function paper not the best

Epson WorkForce 840 on Mac OS X 10.6

DrDavid, Amazon
28 July 2011
  • Summary: Setup was a snap and everything worked on my wireless network without any problems at all. Paper trays are large enough to handle large print jobs and the convenience of two trays allow photo paper and letter to be ready when needed. The only criticism I have is that the scanner software does not work on OS X 10.6 and required the purchase of a third party scanner program to get the functionality that I needed.

Solid AOI Printer/Scanner

John Armstrong, Amazon
21 June 2011
  • Summary: I have owned several HP officejet printers for the home office (over the last 17 years), before the all-in-one, I had a few of the print/fax HP models. The HP printers have been solid mechanically but have alwasy fallen short on the s/w side. I became very frustrated with my last HP 7580 as I was forced to re-install the s/w more than 8 itmes over a 2 year period in order to get the s/w to fuction.

install issue - win 7 ultimate 64bit users

Soar, Amazon
28 April 2011
  • Summary: The installation process for this printer was clunky and did not work for me. The root issue was a simple thing (I am an experienced computer user and it still got me)... the drivers on this new printer did not work with Windows 7 and I had to pull fresh from Epson's site (this is 2011 not 2010... Win 7 should not pose an issue). Installation problem: Installing the product onto a windows 7 ultimate 64bit system was a problem.

Two sided printing, scanning, copying at an extremely fair price...

P3Mike, Amazon
15 April 2011
  • Summary: The only two models I considered were the Epson Workforce 840 and the HP 8500A Plus. My top priorities were speed, laser like text quality, ink that won't smudge (pigment based) if I use a highlighter on color or black, two sided scanning/copying and printing, and ink that was not too expensive. Both the HP and Epson do well at fulfilling these requirements. However, the HP has a legal size flatbed and a 50 page (vs. 30 page) auto-document feeder.

Very satisfied

Fred, Amazon
27 March 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this printer about 2 weeks ago and am using it on an iMAC without any problems. I had a Canon MX870 which I had originally been using on a PC before converting to the MAC. The Canon posed problems for months in not recognizing the end of a print cycle forcing me to manually delete the job in the print queue after every job. Neither Canon nor Apple could fix the problem and after several months I became sufficiently frustrated that I bought a new printer.

Love Everything Except the Speed

MLouise, Amazon
18 March 2011
  • Summary: To start with I'll address the speed issue since that is the focus of my review title. I purchased this for two reasons: First, I wanted a good multifunction printer that could also print excellent photos. Second, I wanted the print speeds that this printer advertises. I do not know how they arrive at their speed specs, but here are my test results: Although black text printing is lightning fast, color printing on high quality settings is not much faster than my 5 yr old...

BIG improvement over my Canon Pixma

Mahlers2nd "The Resurrection", Amazon
17 March 2011
  • Summary: Recently I bought a Canon Pixma because I wanted a printer that had sheet feeding capability. The problem with the Canon was that I could never get the Canon to "talk" to my computers. I would go through all the steps, even plug the computer directly into the computer ... nothing worked. Then I got this when I started working from home full time. It was amazing. It worked exactly like it should. The touchscreen menu was very easy to figure out.
