Epson WorkForce WF-3620
An all in one inkjet printer to its core, the Workforce WF 3620 does quite well in all these functions. It is advertised that this device is for home office and small business and office use but this isn’t a printer that is built for intensive use as I found out the hard way.
This all-in-one printer has a black-and-white print speed of 19 pages per minute and It can also print color at 10 pages per minute on average, which is above par. The WorkForce has scan, copy and fax capabilities. This makes it useful for a small office or home office setting. There is an automatic document feeder for faxing and scanning, so you won't have to manually feed each page of a document into the scanner. It can hold up to 25 sheets. This feature is indeed rare in a printer at this price range. The machine has a scanning resolution of 2,400 dpi, which is high enough resolution to scan photos and documents clearly. It can send faxes at up to three pages per minute which is also great. The interface and connectivity is super easy to use as well.
And this is where it goes downhill. The printer tries to emulate the qualities of a larger LaserJet printer, these are huge and can take a pounding, and put it in the frail body of an inkjet and the machine keeps breaking down when you use it as advertised. You will need to be extra careful not to print a constant stream of documents as you risk the printer breaking down at some point. Epson does have a customer support line but they are sub par at best which doesn’t help at all.
I’d say this machine is just OK at best. It does have its shortcomings due to its fragility but the price of less than $100 (Street price) makes it one of the cheapest out there and I’d buy it if I’m not planning on abusing the poor thing.
