Looking for an inexpensive all-in-one printer but still want business features like duplex printing? The Epson WorkForce 845 could be just the inkjet model for you. It has the professional features that small businesses need at a price closer to that of a home model. Print speeds are a bit slow, at up to 15 pages per minute for black and 9.3 pages per minute for color, but printer ink is very affordable, as Epson 845 ink is inexpensive.
The 845 handles the basics very well, such as printing, scanning, copying, and faxing, but it excels at many office tasks with included features such as an automatic duplexer for easy two-sided prints and scans. The automatic document feeder also makes it quick and easy to scan or copy multiple pages or even just a single sheet. Setting up the device is simple and streamlined, and it includes support for wired or wireless networks, and can also be connected directly to a computer via USB.
Printer ink is more affordable than most inkjets, as Epson 845 ink cartridges are very inexpensive. The WorkForce 845 ink cartridges also have a large capacity of up to 755 per cartridge, which means a much lower cost per page than the average in its class. The 4-cartridge system also means users will waste less Epson 845 ink.
In their review of the 845, Cnet gave the device a rating of 4 out of 5 stars. They praised its speed and output quality, and liked the many connectivity options and easy setup.
