Epson is great company with a terrific reputation, and the Epson WorkForce WF-4630 Wireless Color Inkjet Printer gets consistently great feedback from both owners and reviewers. This is the first time I've been completely satisfied with how long ink lasts, quality or print & printer, speed & ease of use on one printer.
It's a great printer. Prints very fast, good quality etc..nice responsive touch screen and very good menu's on the printer..easy to use. A 35-page auto document feeder allows you to get substantial jobs going and come back to them when they're finished, rather than having to hand-feed them. "Performance Beyond Laser" is the proud boast of the Epson WorkForce WF-4630 Wireless Color All-in-One Inkjet Printer.
It's a versatile machine, handling all kinds of different media (the 35-page automatic document feeder is well liked) and offering scanning, copying, and faxing as well.
Like the other printers reviewed, the Epson WorkForce WF-4630 Wireless Color Inkjet Printer has all the connectivity you could want. There's Wifi that once again is very easy to set up, and there are easily print from your tablet or smartphone using Epson Connect. Supports Android, Apple iPad and iPhone, Chromebook, Kindle Fire, Mac and Windows devices. Home workers, in particular, have found this multitude of options very convenient. In terms of actual usage, the machine does everything well, with speed and quality. Incredibly easy to set-up. Solid, well-made work horse. Perfect for a small office.
It's another duplex printer, capable of 20 ipm black and white and 20 ipm color, although on further investigation we found that double-sided printing reduces this by about half. This calls into question the use of the ipm measure, and we've been unable to ascertain whether the Canon suffers the same speed drop. The safest option, in our opinion, is to be skeptical of most claimed print speeds on home printers, particularly when the manufacturers themselves put provisos like "depending on software, configuration and page complexity," in the small print! In real terms, we expect its performance will normally be similar to that of the Canon.
My biggest trouble with most printers is having to buy ink every other day. If a printer is perfect in every other way, but I find myself constantly shopping for ink, I will hate it. Not a problem with the WF-4630. Like the Canon, it has separate ink cartridges (though four, rather than five), the cartridges are large and ink management is optimal.
At the moment you can pick one up for about $199, a decent saving over the list price. Epson also offers a 4640 model for an additional $100. For that extra cost, you get a larger touch screen & a printer that holds 580 sheets of paper instead of the 4630's 330 sheets.
