The Epson WorkForce Pro WP-4520 is a color inkjet multifunction that aims to compete with color laser models at a similar price. It has fast ISO-rated speeds of 16 pages per minute for black and 11 pages per minute for color, and features duplex printing for saving on paper and affordable Epson WP-4520 printer ink for saving on supply costs.
The WP-4520 can handle the most common office tasks as well, with functions for printing, scanning, copying, and faxing. Copying and faxing can be done without a PC connection, which makes it a very capable standalone machine. A 30-page automatic document feeder is included, which can handle duplex (two-sided) scanning, and a flatbed platen is also available for larger media.
The unit can be shared wirelessly or with an ethernet connection, and options like scan-to-email and scan-to-USB add a lot of flexibility when scanning paper documents to digital versions. Multiple options are included for printing from mobile devices, including Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print. The most versatile feature is the Epson Connect protocol, which can print any image or file sent to the machine via email, making it compatible with just about any device.
The high-capacity versions of Epson WP-4520 ink cartridges have large yields of up to 1,200 pages for each color and 2,400 pages for black. This allows them to last for up to 6 reams of paper before the WorkForce Pro WP-4520 ink cartridges will need replacing. The price of WorkForce Pro WP-4520 printer ink is not as low as some similar models, but the large capacities still result in a low cost per page.
The WP-4520 is generally designed for a small shared office, but it could also function well for busy home users who could benefit from its speed and cost-effective Epson WP-4520 ink. Offering the quality of a color inkjet at the speed of a compact laser model, it is a good buy.
