What’s New and What’s Hot from Epson: Workforce Pro Business-Class Printers

Last week we revealed that Epson recently came out with the iPrint app for Androids, which allows the user to print files on the mobile phone or from the internet from an Epson Inkjet printer. The iPrint app for Androids is mirrored by the PriApps for the Blackberry phone, and the new line of three Epson business-class printers are now entering smartphone applications into the equation as must-have features for top-of-the-line printers.

Increasing mobility, speed and greater connectivity are some of the new features of Epson’s just-released line of business-class Inkjet printers, which includes Workforce Pro 4020, WP-4530 and WP-4550. All three include WiFi and support for Epson Connect, the program that allows smartphone users to hook their phone up straight to the printer.

All three printers tout maximum speed and efficiency, as well as remote printing capability with smartphones, as some of their best features, but let’s do a little comparison and see which might best suit your office’s needs.

Features of all three Workforce Pro printers:

  • Wi-Fi and support for Epson Connect
  • High-capacity ink cartridges rated to 1,200 color and 2,400 black pages
  • Automatic two-sided printing
  • Print speeds of 16 ISO ppm black and 11 ISO ppm color for single-sided printing and 9.2 ISO ppm black and 7.1 ISO ppm color for two-sided printing (Epson claims this is the fastest printing speed in the world)
Price Type Special Features
Epson WP-4020 179.99 Inkjet printer Wifi, Epson Connect, Epson ink cartridges of 1,200 color and 2,400 black and white
Print speeds of 16 ISO ppm black and 11 ISO ppm color for single-sided printing; 9.2 ISO ppm black and 7.1 ISO ppm color for two-sided printing

Epson WP-4540 399.99 All-in-One: print, copy, scan, fax Wifi, Epson Connect, Epson ink cartridges of 1,200 color and 2,400 black and white;
Print speeds of 16 ISO ppm black and 11 ISO ppm color for single-sided printing; 9.2 ISO ppm black and 7.1 ISO ppm color for two-sided printing
Built-in 30-page automatic feeder to copy, fax, and scan two-sided original; Can receive files directly from an external source through a USB port; Can save scans directly as PDFs
Larger 580-sheet paper capacity (dual 250-sheet trays plus a rear specialty paper 80 sheet tray) and a large display containing both a 5.8-inch touch screen and 3.5-inch LCD

The main upgrade from the WP-4020 to the all-in-one printers is that for a little more than a hundred dollars, you can add scanning, copying and faxing capabilities. And from the WP-4530 to the WP-4540, you add a larger screen, which is also a touch screen, and a larger capacity for holding paper.

Some of the best features and benefits of the new Workforce Pro line:

  • Save on Ink — up to 50% less cost per page than color laser
  • World’s Fastest automatic two-sided printer — ideal for busy workgroups
  • Reload paper less often — 330-sheet paper capacity, including an 80-sheet rear-feed tray for alterative papers, envelopes, labels and card stock
  • Built-in networking — easily connect and share with others in your workgroup via wireless or wired networking
  • Epson Connect — get instant wireless printing from popular mobile devices
  • Save energy — uses up to 70% less power than laser printers

Now the question simply becomes: which one?
