The Epson WorkForce Pro WF-5690 is a multifunction inkjet printer with printing, copying, faxing, and scanning capabilities. It can reach ISO speeds of around 20 pages per minute in both color and monochrome, and has extras like duplexing and mobile printing. It has wired and wireless network support, and uses multiple capacities of Epson WF-5690 printer ink so users can better control costs.
The control panel of the WF-5690 doesn't seem quite as modern as some similar inkjet models, as it lacks a full-color touchscreen display, but its array of dedicated buttons will be familiar to most office users, and may be preferable for getting serious work done. The unit isn't as compact as typical home devices, measuring 18.1x25.8x15.1 inches, and it weighs 31.5 pounds with the WorkForce Pro WF-5690 ink in place.
Connection options include a standard ethernet port for wired networks, and Wi-Fi support for wireless networking. A USB port is also included for personal use. Mobile printing protocols such as Google Cloud Print are supported, and Epson offers several specialized apps that handle printing and scanning tasks from smartphones and tablets quite well. The option of the flatbed scanner or the automatic document feeder makes for quick scanning of different project types.
The cost of Epson WF-5690 ink cartridges is pretty comparable to competing models, but multiple sizes give users more options. The standard WorkForce Pro WF-5690 ink cartridges provide yields of 300-350 pages, but larger sizes can reach up to 4,000 pages each. This can bring the cost per page of Epson WF-5690 printer ink down considerably.
For a small office that values efficiency, the WF-5690 could be an excellent choice. It lacks some convenience features like a color touchscreen, but most office users won't mind, and its design is more streamlined for a business environment in general.
