About the WorkForce 600 All-in-One Color Inkjet Printer
Epson was kind enough to give me one of these bad boys to review last year for a giveaway on Biz Chicks Rule, and I’m still completely in love with this printer. In Epson’s own words:
Epson means business with the new Epson WorkForce 600 all-in-one. Engineered to provide small office or home-based businesses with features that meet their printing needs and speeds that rival laser printers, this cost-effective ink jet delivers laser quality text and superior color images with Epson’s exclusive DURABrite®Ultra ink that are smudge, water, and fade resistant. The WorkForce 600 also offers built-in Wi-Fi and wired networking, a 2.5” tilt LCD screen, and an automatic document feeder to easily scan, copy and fax black and color documents. It also comes with a special industry leading, two-year warranty with toll-free support.
Take a look at the detailed printer fact sheet for more specs.
When I initially reviewed the printer, I said, “I’ve had a hard time finding a printer that (a) I can afford, (b) works with my Mac, and (c) works wirelessly with the five computers in my house while (d) producing high-quality printed pages.” I’m happy to report that 4 months later, I’m still thrilled with the quality, reliability, and speed of this printer, and so is my self-employed business-owner husband.
“I love how fast it prints,” he said, “and the scanner is amazing.” (Here, he pointed to his computer screen to show me a large document he had just scanned, and the image was perfect. I was blown away, as I had previously scanned only small things.) I’ve also been impressed not only with the printing speed, but how quiet this thing is. This is great when you’re sharing an office and are easily distracted, believe me.
As a writer, I’ve found it invaluable to my business to have a fast, high-quality printer at my disposal. Epson claims that the printer produces laser-quality documents, and I have to agree. I’ve had a lot of color inkjet printers in my life, and none even come close to the WorkForce 600in quality and consistency.
It can also handle a much higher printing volume than printers I’ve had in the past, without declining in quality from the beginning of a print job to the end. This is particularly handy for printing large numbers of handouts for speaking engagements and classes.
I use mine for reviewing drafts, printing handouts, printing samples and invoices to send to clients, and creating photos for us and for family and friends. It’s honestly the best printer I’ve ever owned. And it’s a great scanner. AND it’s a fax machine.
The interface is super user friendly, and even my tech-challenge self had no problem getting it online with all of our 5 computers in the house, which include 2 Macs and 3 PCs. (How fun is it to print to the office on the other side of the house when you’re lying in bed with your laptop on a lazy morning catching up on personal e-mail?)
So, in short, I’m thrilled to be able to offer one of these printers to an Inkthinker reader.
