Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4640 Wireless and WiFi Direct, All-in-One Color Inkjet Printer, Copier, Scanner, 2-Sided Auto Duplex, ADF, Fax. Prints from Tablet/Smartphone. AirPrint Compatible. (C11CD11201)

In our home and office we use our printer for many things:

1.) I use it for work and I usually need what I print quickly.
2.) My husband prints things for his classes at school, so the ink can’t be too expensive.
3.) The kids use it for more things than I thought possible, both color and black and white.

We use the printer wirelessly over our wifi. Even though it is the furthest device from the router, it has not had a single problem with communication: each print job goes through seamlessly. Speaking of wifi: the setup was very simple through the large touch screen. Follow the instructions and done.

Speedwise: As I said, I am often printing on the run. I am used to the slow inkjets from the past, and the 4640 really surprised me. At standard settings the printer easily spits out 20 black and white pages in less than a minute.

Flexibility: We use many different types of paper and materials to print. The 4640 has two feeder trays and a rear feeder as well. We have printed on several types of paper, card stock, and even printable plastic sheets with no bleeding of color or deformation of the page.

Ink storage: The 4640 uses 4 different ink tanks, so you can replace all or just one as required. The tanks are also large, so you should not have to be replacing them very often.

Scanning: You have a couple of options when it comes to scanning. You can scan to an inserted usb drive or to a computer on the network. Scanning can be a little slow, but it really depends on the user to select the correct settings.

Overall: 5 stars. This is a flexible machine that is great in a small office or busy home environment.
