If you are looking for a great all in one device then check out this new printer from Epson. It is the workforce 600 All-in-One printer which boast that it is actually a 5 in 1 device with WiFi, Print, Copy, Scan, Photo, and Fax features.

This Epson workforce can print up to 38 ppm in black and color and it also does double sided printing. An extra high capacity black is available so you can print many letters without running out of ink.

After trying this printer I can tell you that it works flawlessly and the 30 page document feeder on top is great for scanning multiple pages. Below is a video where I will show you all the features of this device, also below are the technical specs and links to where you can get this all-in-one device. The Epson workforce 600 cost anywhere from $149.99 to $199.99. By the way one great thing about this device is that the drivers support all popular operating systems which include Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, MAC OS X, and 64bit versions of the windows operating system.

Notes

  • 1 Ink fade resistance ratings based on accelerated testing of prints on specialty media, displayed indoors, under glass. Actual print stability will vary according to media, printed image, display conditions, light intensity, humidity and atmospheric conditions. Epson does not guarantee the longevity of prints. For maximum print life, display all prints under glass or properly store them. Visit www.wilhelm-research.com for the latest information.
  • 2 Draft pages per minute (ppm)/Copies per minute (cpm) speeds measured after first page, based on black and color text patterns in Draft Mode on plain paper. Laser quality pages per minute (ppm) speeds measured after first page, based on black text patterns in default mode on plain paper. Additional print time will vary based on system configuration, software application and page complexity. See www.epson.com/printspeed for more information about print speeds.
  • 3 We recommend the use of genuine Epson ink cartridges. The use of other products may affect your print quality and longevity and could result in all-in-one damage. Cartridge yields vary considerably based on images printed, print settings, paper type, frequency of use and temperature. For print quality, a small amount of ink remains in the cartridge after the “Replace cartridge” indicator comes on. The all-in-one ships with full cartridges and part of the ink from the first cartridges is used for priming the printer. See www.epson.com/cartridgeinfo for more information about cartridges.
  • 4 Adapter required
  • Black text printing about two times faster compared to ink jet printers priced at $199 or less, available as of April 2008. Based on independent test in default mode printing typical office documents.
  • Some applications and/or functions, like double-sided printing, are not supported by Mac.

    Hello,

    I just purchased an Epson Workforce 610 all-in-one. I installed the software, however, I am having several problems. I was wondering if you could provide your expertise?

    Upon computer startup, a pop-up appears mentioning “EEvent Manager Application has stopped working…A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.” Also, another message when I try to open the event manager occurs “EProjManager Application has stopped working.” And finally, when I click on the Epson Scan icon on the desktop “EPSON Scan has stopped working” appears. I just bought the printer and was hoping for some suggestions. I am running this printer on wireless, and operating on Windows Vista. I was wondering if you have any suggestions Please email.

    Although a handful understand it, there’s a wide difference when it comes to composition between offline and internet based article marketing. An article’s worth is assessed by audience in terms of whether or not it’s easy to digest. So a clever thing should be to keep it simple and exact.

  22. Elida Elswick Says:

    Even if few acknowledge it, there is a huge difference when it comes to composition between traditional and internet based article promotion. An article’s value is assessed by people in terms of whether or not it’s simple to absorb. Consequently a clever thing is always to keep it simplistic and accurate.

    In simple conditions cannabis merely needs sufficient light (natural or man-made),
    sufficient root space, enough nutrients (though not high levels) and enough room and oxygen to
    increase in.
