Review: Epson WorkForce 635 Multifunction Printer

PCWorld: Review – Epson WorkForce 635 Multifunction Printer

The $200 Epson WorkForce 635 multifunction color inkjet printer (fax, copy, print, scan) is ideal for small offices, PC World magazine’s reviewers say. It’s fast, print quality is good and ink is reasonably priced.

“A color inkjet multifunction printer, Epson’s WorkForce 635 earns its $200 list price (as of 03/21/11) with its impressive speed, print quality, and features. Even better, its inks are reasonably priced. The WorkForce 635 has the edge in speed and print quality compared with the HP OfficeJet 6500A Plus e-All-In-One Printer, though the HP’s high-yield inks are slightly more economical.

The WorkForce 635’s control panel is a bit busy-looking, but straightforward, with separate controls for copying, faxing, and scanning. The menu structure displayed on the 2.5-inch color LCD is logical and concise. USB, ethernet, and Wi-Fi connections are available. Paper handling includes a bottom-mounted, 250-sheet input tray and a 30-sheet automatic document feeder that accepts legal-size documents. The flatbed platen is letter/A4-sized. Automatic duplexing (two-sided printing) is available for copying and scanning as well–and it’s peppier than we’ve observed on some other models. Two slots take CF, MS, SD, and xD media; you also get a USB/PictBridge port.”
