Epson WorkForce 840 All-in-One Printer Review

Epson WorkForce 840 is the leader model of the organization's line of WorkForce across the board printers for little and independent ventures. Thusly, it costs more than the normal across the board at $299, yet it additionally presents a smorgasbord of highlights. Notwithstanding the standard menu of print, duplicate, output, and fax works, the WorkForce 840 highlights Ethernet and Wi-Fi organizing, two-sided printing, a programmed report feeder (ADF), and the capacity to print legitimately from your cell phone. What's more, it plays out these capacities in an astonishingly minimized bundle that can hold a full ream of paper. It offers focused content rates and great illustrations speeds, and our lone scrutinize is that it's moderate to print photographs. For a do-everything, high-limit inkjet for your little or home office, we profoundly prescribe the Epson WorkForce 840.

Structure and highlights 

The Epson WorkForce 840 is amazingly conservative for a multifunction gadget that has two massive 250-sheet input plate and a 30-sheet programmed report feeder (ADF). It quantifies 17.6 inches wide by 14.5 inches deep by 11.8 inches high and gauges 22 pounds, which, joined with its advantageous indented handles, make it one of the more compact MFPs; in correlation, the HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus gauges 28 pounds. The WorkForce 840's 500-page paper limit is helpful for high-volume office printing, and you can stock two distinct kinds of paper in a couple of size-movable plate.

A sufficient 13-inch-wide overlap out control board sits noticeably amidst the unit. A thin yield plate dwells beneath the board with two removable info plate on the base. To one side of the yield plate on the front are two media card openings and a USB port for direct printing from your camera or its media card.

We associated the printer to our Windows 7 proving ground and introduced the drivers from the packaged CD, alongside Epson's Easy Photo Print and CreativeZone applications and a scanner application. Simple Photo Print endeavors to help with printing photographs, however we question you'll utilize it over your favored photograph the board application. CreativeZone is a fun application that gives you a chance to structure solicitations, letterhead, and other page formats. The drivers introduced inside 5 minutes, and the extra application added an additional 5 minutes to the arrangement method. With everything taken into account, the establishment procedure is direct, and we can say the equivalent regarding associating the WorkForce 840 to your system by means of Ethernet or Wi-Fi.

In the wake of building up a direct USB association, we tried the Wi-Fi arrangement technique and observed it to be a snap. You have the decision to either set up a brief USB association with set up the printer on your Wi-Fi organize, or forego the USB link and utilize the printer's touch board to add the printer to your system. We picked the last for our tests since it appeared to be increasingly courageous and furthermore in light of the fact that, as most printer merchants, Epson does exclude a USB link. (You won't discover an Ethernet link in the crate either; the main link included is a telephone link for faxing.) Using the arrangement wizard on the included CD, we adhered to the directions to explore the printer's touch board, where we found our Wi-Fi system recorded and entered its secret word. Inside minutes, the drivers were introduced and a test page was printed, giving evidence that we were ready for action on the system.

Once introduced, it is anything but difficult to explore the printer through its enormous control board. You can overlay it out and alter it to your ideal point by squeezing a catch on its back. At the focal point of the 7.8-inch contact show is a 3.5-inch shading LCD with various catches for capacities, for example, home, page forward, page back, and climb a menu level. Catches that are idle for a specific screen aren't enlightened, which limits direction disarray.

At the point when associated by means of Wi-Fi, Epson offers a bunch of free versatile printing applications for remotely printing straightforwardly from cell phones. Epson's PrintJinni application empowers you to print records, Web pages, and messages. The arrangement for PrintJinni is somewhat puzzling, however we managed to print a Web page from an iPhone with the application. Be that as it may, Gmail couldn't discover the printer when we attempted to print a message from a Gmail record set up through PrintJinni on the equivalent iPhone.

Epson's iPrint application worked perfectly, however it prints just photographs. The product takes you to your telephone's camera roll, where you can basically choose a photograph and the printer to send it to, and hit print. You can pick circumscribed or borderless prints, and from among four distinctive paper types: 4x6 inches, 5x7 inches, letter, and A4.

When you're not on your telephone but rather in the workplace, you'll discover the duplicate and sweep capacities valuable. The A4-sized scanner sound highlights 1,200x 2,400 dab for each inch (DPI) goals, and you can send your sweeps to your PC, or to a memory card embedded in the printer, or connect it straightforwardly to an email. You can likewise utilize the ADF to create twofold sided duplicates and output twofold sided prints.

The Epson WorkForce 840 printer ships with four separate ink cartridges for cyan, maroon, yellow, and dark. To factor the most cost-proficient value per page, we base our expense per page on Epson's extrahigh-limit ink cartridges. The extrahigh-limit dark cartridge costs $28.49 for a seller assessed 945 pages, which works out to a little more than 3 pennies for every page. For shading, the extrahigh-limit three-pack for cyan, maroon, and yellow expenses $54.10 for 7.2 pennies per page. The two costs fall just underneath the mean for an across the board printer of this size.


The Epson WorkForce 840 turned in a solid execution in our tests overall. It siphoned out 12.48 pages every moment (ppm) on our everything dark content speed test, which was almost a similar score as the Epson WorkForce 520 and the HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus. The WorkForce 840 performed similarly as fast when printing designs, particularly in our introduction speed test, in which it outpaced the challenge by printing 10 shading PowerPoint slides at a clasp of 6.79 ppm. Tragically, it battled in our photograph speed test, taking about 70 seconds to print a 4x6-inch photograph on lustrous photograph paper for a period of 0.86 ppm. Contending models were a few times quicker at printing photographs.

The WorkForce 840 demonstrated somewhat speedier than normal on our output and duplicate tests. It examined a 10-page shading record at 5.59 ppm, and duplicated a 10-page monochrome content archive at 5.48 ppm.

We surveyed its yield quality in next to each other examination with the HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus and found that the WorkForce 840 created somewhat crisper content and more splendid, increasingly clear shading. It nearly resembled the Officejet Pro 8500A Plus utilized an excessive amount of ink in printing content, especially with littler textual styles, bringing about marginally obscured edges. The WorkForce 840 created extremely sharp edges and better looking content than the Officejet Pro 8500A Plus.

In conclusion, we welcome the WorkForce 840's low working clamor levels. Any little office can feel claustrophobic when you're attempting to complete work alongside a noisy, domineering printer, and the WorkForce 840 scarcely made its essence known during spooling, examining, and printing.

It's not the quickest photograph printer, yet for every single other occupation the Epson WorkForce 840 exceeds expectations. We suggest this multifunction inkjet for its excellent prints, quick content and designs speeds, simple to-explore control board, and wealth of highlights that incorporate autoduplexing, an ADF, wired and remote systems administration, and backing for versatile printing.
