The Epson WorkForce 525 all-in-one inkjet printer doesn't have the capacity of some of the larger models in its class, but its compact design is a better fit for home or small office users. It still features fast printing speeds of up to 38 pages per minute, however, and WorkForce 525 printer ink supplies are affordable overall, despite their small capacities.
In order to achieve a low price, the design of the 525 is somewhat stripped down, but also simplified, so that it is very easy to use. It includes an automatic document feeder than can hold up to 30 pages, which is a very surprising touch, but its two-line LCD is a little less useful than the full-color displays of more expensive models. Still, it is adequate for controlling different tasks and accessing the menus, and it even provides feedback on print status and the level of Epson 525 printer ink remaining.
The 525 doesn't include the bevy of mobile printing protocols of some models, but it does include Epson iPrint support, which can enable printing from Apple devices and others. With both an ethernet port and Wi-Fi sharing, it is easy to connect, and individual users can still take advantage of the USB 2.0 port if needed.
Individual colors of Epson 525 ink cartridges provide great photo quality, and reduced waste, as users can replace them one at a time. Both standard and high-capacity WorkForce 525 ink cartridges are available, with the latter providing a lower cost per page, despite a slightly higher price tag.
Though other all-in-one inkjet models may offer a few more features, it is hard to beat the 525 for basic functionality and a very low price. With some mobile printing support and affordable Epson 525 ink replacements, it is an excellent value.
