Epson has unveiled three new compact and affordable colour inkjet 4-in-1 printers designed for home and small offices. The new additions to its WorkForce product range include must-have features for small business users and home office users alike, such as small and space-efficient designs, duplex printing, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct and colour LCD touchscreens1. All deliver high-quality, economical business printing.
Kally Kanda, product manager, Epson UK, says: “These new compact WorkForce printers offer the ultimate in affordable 4-in-1 performance and are ideal for small business offices and home offices. With the range including duplex printing, automatic document feeders and fast, laser-like results, this is inkjet technology at its very best value2.”
The WorkForce WF-2660DWF, WF-2650DWF and WF-2630WF can all print, scan, copy and fax, and offer Wi-Fi, plus Wi-Fi Direct® for wireless printing without a network. A 30-page automatic document feeder and a 1200dpi scanner with OCR also come as standard across the range.
The WF-2660DWF and WF-2650DWF deliver business-quality printing. They're built around Epson's own PrecisionCore technology, a next-generation inkjet printing technology with superior colour, print quality, and output durability on a wide range of media. Both models include a 150-page front loading tray, offer double-sided printing, and can reach print speeds of 13 black and 7.3 colour pages per minute3.
