Summary: I ordered this because of Consumer Reports' evaluation. It was not readily available but found it on line. The on screen directions are a little lacking and require some trials; but, it does its job well. Am satisfied and would recommend it to others, although it may be getting scarse.
Summary: Purchased on 9-25-2012 through Amazon affiliate "Onsale.com". So far so good, no problems with the machine, good quality copies, great for office use. I would not recommend using it for large copy jobs/flyers, but you could. Great price through Onsale, $99.99 plus shipping. Half the price of any other seller I could find. If it continues to perform at it's current level I would consider this a very good purchase.
Summary: The first printer I received was defective. The printing head would not move all the way. I was on the phone with Epson technical support (in India somewhere). After having me try several things, they concluded that it was defective. Amazon made it very easy to return the printer at no cost. They sent a label, I repacked it, and dropped it off at UPS via Staples. Amazon sent another one. The set up was a breeze and the print quality is very high.
Epson WorkForce Pro WP-4010 - the undervalued sibling of the WP-4020
14 August 2013
Summary: After our venerable Canon Pixma iP4000 broke down beyond repair, the quest for a new color printer began. The most important requirements for a new printer were good durability, good quality prints, and reasonable printing costs. The last one turned out to be the most challenging requirement to fulfil, because research showed that most inkjet models cost a lot of ink and require frequent cartridge replacements - even when they are not used much.
Summary: I love the double sided print option. Prints great pictures and has a large ink supply. Can't beat the price and quality. I have used it for reports and printing the family tree and documents, it has done a great job. It is easy to set up and use.
Summary: Read before you consider buying!!! I just bought the Epson WP-4010, partly based on the information printed on the Epson website about the number of pages that should be printed before having to replace the toner. Each toner costs $20, or more than 10% of the cost of the entire machine, and there are 4 cartridges in the machine. The blue toner is empty, and the magenta toner is about 40% used up, after printing only about 35 pages of text.
