The Product: Epson WorkForce 600 all-in-one wireless printer
Short and Sweet Review: Great for small workgroups.
Who should use it: Small businesses ready to move up from basic printers.
Patrick Gevas of Walt and Company sent it to me for a review. I set it up in my home office, where it feels really big, compared to the previous tiny printer. Setup was easy, though I hit a glitch with one ink cartridge. I just took it out and put it back in. That fixed it.
So far, I’ve used it to fax, copy, print and scan. I like it! That huge, clunky old fax machine someone gave me to make do with at the store? It’s outta there! I’ll happily carry faxes home to send with this sucker instead.
Separate ink cartridges for each color
Each color gets its own ink cartridge. For small businesses printing quite a bit of color, that should be a cost saving feature.
The printer is pretty big, so I started to scoot it right up against the back of my desk, except that the darn power cord sticks out. Drat. In a small office rather than home office setting, this is probably not a big deal.
Wireless is Nice
Just like my other wireless printer, I did need to use a USB cable (included in the box!) to do the initial setup. After that, it’s good to go wireless. You can set it up anywhere in the office.
Memory Card Slots
The front panel has slots for your camera memory cards. In fact, I noticed you can access those memory card slots across the wireless network. I’m thinking that this could be handy at times. It is also another reason to have good wireless security in place for your business.
This printer would be a good fit for small businesses with a few folks working together, and a need for quite a bit of printing, and lots of functionality in one unit.
