No matter how far a technology has advanced, it is of no use unless it is cost efficient in the long run. The move from inkjet to laser printers can be seen as a mark of technological advancement but also brings issues of cost efficiency. Even though laser printers save a lot of time than inkjet printers but the cost per page becomes a costly affair while printing hundreds of pages in offices and workgroups.
Viewing this, Epson has taken a step back in time to redeem the name of inkjet printers by releasing a series of WorkForce Pro inkjet printers. These are high speed professional quality printers that are designed to bring down the cost per page by 50 percent, when compared to conventional laser printers. It also helps to cut down 50 percent of the paper supply through the built-in automatic two-sided printing and copying.
The WorkForce series include three inkjet printers - WorkForce Pro WP-4540 All-in-One, WorkForce Pro WP-4530 All-in-One, and WorkForce Pro WP-4020 single function. WorkForce WP-4540 and WorkForce Pro WP-4530 are 4-in-1 printers that can print, copy, scan, and fax. They are priced at a range of $179.99 to $399.99.
Here are some of the key features of the new series of Epson printer:
• World’s Fastest Printer: Epson claims this series to be the world’s fastest automatic two-sided printers that print at twice the speed of inkjets.
• Paper capacity: WorkForce Pro WP-4540 has a sufficient 580-sheet paper capacity and convenient 5.8" touch panel, while the other two offer a 330-sheet paper capacity. WorkForce WP-4540 and WP-4530 also feature a robust duty cycle of 20,000 pages.
• B&W and Color printing: It also boasts about its two-sided print speed of 9.2 ISO ppm (black) and 7.1 ISO ppm (color), that moves at your busy pace. They also offer easy to install cartridges, with a high yield of 2400 pages in black and 1200 pages in color.
• Two-sided Auto Document Feeder: Both WorkForce Pro WP-4540 and WP-4530 use the 30-page two-sided 'Auto Document Feeder' to quickly copy, scan, or fax one or two-sided documents.
• Built-in wireless networking: The most efficient of all is the ability to easily share your all-in-one printer with others. Direct mobile printing enables you to print and scan from virtually any room thus saving more time.
Epson WorkForce series definitely is an apt choice for a fast paced work environment, that saves your valuable time while printing with the reduction of cost per page and paper supply.
