Epson All in One Printers – Affordable Home and Office
Epson all in one printers are all at once stylish, affordable and
effective for the tasks at hand. The Epson printer range is separated
into the Artisan, WorkForce and Stylus categories, each of which has
its own specialty. Let’s take a more detailed look at the types of
multifunctions on offer in each category and the features you can make
of for surprisingly affordable prices.
Artisan All in Ones
One thing you’ll immediately notice with even the cheapest of Epson’s
all-in-one Artisan models is the inclusion of wireless capabilities.
The Artisan printers are designed for home use, allowing you to engage
in all the printing tasks you could conceivably want to carry out on a
non-commercial project. In particular, they’re designed to allow you to
unleash your creativity in visual form, and thus they include a few
extra features over many of the Stylus NX printers which are more basic
The Epson all in one printers in this range allow you to
extend that even
further with the extra capabilities of copying and scanning. Most of
the Artisan range all-in-ones also include a high-definition photo
printing mode, and some include faxing.
One of the cool innovations on some of the more advanced Artisan
all-in-ones is the inclusion of a touch screen. This is one area in
which Epson excels beyond many competitors. Most competing units have a
relatively small (2 to 3-inch) LCD screen for viewing images before you
execute a function. Some of Epson’s Artisan printers, on the other
hand, include a 7.8-inch touch panel with 3.5 inches of LCD. This gives
you an extra level of flexibility when it comes to viewing, but more
importantly editing your images without a PC before you print, copy,
scan or fax.
WorkForce All in Ones
The WorkForce range is designed for business applications, which is why
you’ll notice virtually all these machines include a fax function.
Epson emphasizes the speed of their all-in-one units, and with the
WorkForce models that difference definitely shows through.
Most of the WorkForce all-in-ones lack the feature of high-definition
photo printing. However, they virtually all have advanced networking
features and include auto document feeders to make larger printing or
copying jobs more efficient. At the top of the range, the Epson
WorkForce 840 includes a 500-sheet paper capacity which makes it a real
work horse for all its four functions. It also includes automatic
duplex printing capabilities. It’s an affordable and highly productive
multifunction printer unit ideal for a home office or small business
Stylus All in Ones
The Stylus NX range of printers is designed to allow home users to
combine all their home printed communications needs into one affordable
machine. Only one of these printers includes a faxing capability.
Again, Epson emphasizes the speed advantage of these all-in-ones over
comparable models. If you’re in the market for a very basic and
affordable multifunction unit, one of the Stylus NX machines may be
right for your circumstances.
