The Epson WorkForce Pro 4530 combines the speed of a laser model with the bold color of an inkjet, giving buyers the best of both worlds. It is a multifunction device that can scan, copy, and print, and users can send faxes over the internet or phone lines, to save time and money. ISO-rated print speeds are up to 11 pages per minute in color, and 16 pages per minute in black. The 4-color printer ink system keeps things economical, and Epson 4530 ink is inexpensive.
The design of the 4530 may be a little larger and boxier than home users would expect. The unit is quite tall, at about 15.1 inches with the trays extended, and its footprint is 18.1 inches by 25.7 inches. This may be a decent tradeoff for a device that offers laser-like speeds, but some buyers may not have the room for it. Paper capacity is 250 sheets of plain paper in the main tray, and the rear-feed tray can hold an additional 80 sheets.
The machine uses four Epson 4530 ink cartridges for its printer ink system, which keeps waste to a minimum, and the WorkForce Pro 4530 ink cartridges are very easy to replace individually. Buyers can save on WorkForce Pro 4530 ink costs by using compatible cartridges instead of OEM.
PC Magazine liked the WorkForce Pro 4530 very much, giving it a rating of 4 out of 5. They praised its versatile paper-handling, and the low cost of Epson 4530 ink. They found its design to be quite large; however, which they thought could be an issue for some buyers.
Overall, the Epson 4530 is an excellent multifunction, and its combination of speed and a versatile feature set make it a good buy for its low price. Buyers can enjoy many of the best features of a laser in an inexpensive inkjet model.
