Epson WorkForce 635 – Modern Wireless AIO Inkjet PrintersPrinters — on May 28, 2011 at 12:05 am | Comment Now
The Epson WorkForce 635 is a wireless all-in-one inkjet printer having the capacity to meet the requirement of modern undersized offices. At $200 the Epson WorkForce 635 is a too-good-to-be-true deal for small offices, who wants a do-it-all device, which can fax, scan, copy and print without awkward touchscreen instrument panel.
The best thing is that the Epson continues to outdo its rivals in print speeds and leads the class in our papers printing tests. We will recommend the amateur photographers to look for alternate devices, but with office-favorable features such as an auto-document feeder, reasonably priced ink substitution cartridges and an auto-duplexer the Epson WorkForce 635 gets our complete support.
Design and Boasts:
The Epson WorkForce 635 has a compact design, and with dimensions less than 18 in x 14 in x 9 in (W x D x H), the printer will easily fit into the compact office spaces. The printer does come with Auto Document feeder (ADF), control panel and paper receptacles, but the good thing here is that all these trays are nicely flushed into the rectangular unit of the system. The normal color design for Epson’s WorkForce multifunctional printer range is an office-fitting lusterless black, having nominal luster to stop it from gathering dust on the device and a dot-patterned scanner lid.
The vigorous control panel of the printer juts out from the center department and can easily turn uneven for most favorable visibleness on your table. The multiple functions of the printer are controlled by means of a 2.5 in LCD. With plenty of modern features urging the users to interact with the printers using touch-screen LCDs and implicit LCD buttons, we are happy to see that still not all printers have followed this trend.
The instrument panel here comes with several perceptible shortcut buttons which surely will enhance your productivity and having particular action functions such as fastening double-sided prints having the back-mounted auto duplexer, personage buttons for scanning and fax features and a hard reset button. The printer also comes with the conventional 4 way directing pad and an OK switch to navigate through the menu settings.
The controls on the printer are complete and at the same time are pretty easy to use together with the Epson driver, which comes on the CD built-in in the box. Some other physical boasts of note includes a media card reader along the façade supporting MS (PRO), Compact Flash, SD memory card, XD, and a PictBridge USB port for saving images straight off a PictBridge-simpatico thumb drive or direct printing.
As far as performance is considered, we were more than happy to see the print outputs for the Epson WorkForce 635 wireless all-in-one printer and we have no problems in saying that the output quality of the documents from Epson is sufficient for professional documents such as spreadsheets, handouts and slide shows. The internal driver settings allows you to select between Best Photo or Photo mode, but always remember that you’ll have to wait a tad longer in case of the Best Photo. The same is the case with the text quality, and it also offers you the same choice between simple text and a tad stylish Image and Text mode. We were able to figure out minor difference between the two, but there wasn’t a huge difference in our snapshot graphics documents and photos.
The Epson WorkForce 635 might be a slow-to-print printer when it comes to printing snapshot photos and heavy graphics documents, but the affordable print prices and double-sided printing confirms the office compatibility for the printer and certainly gets our approval.
