    Epson WorkForce 610


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    A reliable, high-performance all-in-one printer, fax machine, scanner and copier is certainly a welcome addition to any home or office, so I was excited to get my hands on the new Epson WorkForce 610 All-in-One to put it through the wringer and see how it stacked up against the competition. The WorkForce 610 hit the market in August, 2009 at a suggested retail price of $199. Epson designed the 610 for home offices and small businesses who need a cost-effective inkjet solution to handle their day-to-day printing, faxing, copying and scanning.

    I tested the WorkForce 610 over a period of almost four weeks, so my testing was quite extensive. Overall I was pleasantly surprised with the results, although there were several “quirks” I found to be unimpressive—however, I wouldn’t call them deal breakers (more on that later). I was most impressed with the speed of this compact inkjet, which was definitely comparable to similarly-priced laser printers on the market, and superior to other inkjets in this price range.

     

     

    Right out of the box, I found the Epson WorkForce 610 to be attractive and relatively compact. It measures just 18.1 x 13.6 x 9.3 inches (WxDxH) and weighs just over 18 pounds. Also included in the box were the following items:

    • Four ink cartridges (black, cyan, magenta, yellow)
    • Power cable
    • Documentation and CD ROM software
    • Phone cord
    • (USB cord sold separately)

    Setting up the printer was a simple task, and the easy-to-read setup instructions included with the printer will give just about anyone with a minimum amount of technical knowledge the ability to have this all-in-one set up within a matter of 15-30 minutes. One of the first things you notice upon setting up the WorkForce 610 is its small footprint. This unit will fit neatly on any flat surface of about 14 x 18 inches in size, so it would be the perfect companion for a small business or home office environment.

    The industry-leading two-year warranty also caught my eye. I always appreciate when a company, such as Epson, is willing to back their product by a substantial warranty—it gives you a little piece of mind when purchasing the device.
