Epson WorkForce WF-2650 Review
Perhaps, one of the most essential distinction in between the two printers is that the WF-2650 lacks an Ethernet adapter. Similar to the Epson WF-2660, nonetheless, it sustains Wi-Fi as well as Wi-Fi Direct, which indicates you can still attach it to a network or link straight to the printer from a mobile phone also if it’s out a network. Other distinctions consist of a monochrome LCD-based menu as opposed to the Epson WF-2660’s shade touch display, and also the WF-2650’s lack of NFC assistance for easy link to devices that support NFC.
Core MFP functions for the WF-2650 consist of the ability to print and fax from a COMPUTER, scan to a COMPUTER, and work as a standalone photo copier and facsimile machine. Bonus consist of mobile assistance for printing and scanning.
Set up the WF-2650 on a network, as well as– thinking the network is attached to the Internet– you can print through the cloud as well as also scan, making use of the Epson Link solution, to picked sites, consisting of Box, Dropbox, Evernote, as well as Google Drive. You can also link to the printer through an accessibility point to print from or scan to an iphone or Android (consisting of Amazon.com’s Fire OS) phone or tablet.
If you link the WF-2650 to a single COMPUTER by means of USB cable television instead, you will not have the ability to print with or scan to the cloud, however you’ll still be able to link straight to the printer from your smart phone to print and also scan, making use of Wi-Fi Direct.
Additionally in the plus column are the printer’s automatic duplexing (for two-sided printing) and its paper taking care of for scanning, with a letter-size flatbed and also a 30-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF) that can manage up to legal-size pages.
For pictures, I made use of the Premium Presentation Paper Matte that Epson suggests. Shade photo high quality was better in my tests than you would anticipate from many pharmacy prints. One black-and-white photo showed a slightly off-black tint.
A possible problem for the WF-2650 is its running expense. Based upon the ink cartridge prices and Epson’s declared yields, the price per page exercises to 6 cents for a black-and-white web page and also 17.3 cents for a shade page. That’s a lot higher than the claimed price per page for the Sibling MFC-J470DW, at 3.8 cents for black and also white as well as 11.3 cents for shade. Depending on the amount of web pages you anticipate to print, the difference may suffice to matter.
If you’re seeking an MFP for individual or light-duty shared usage, a 150-sheet paper capacity is sufficient for your demands, and Ethernet or Wi-Fi Direct aren’t must-haves, make certain to think about the Sibling MFC-J470DW for its reduced running costs. In a similar way, if you need a wired network link, the Epson WF-2660 is of evident interest. If you do not need Ethernet, however, and also you want Wi-Fi Direct, the Epson WorkForce WF-2650’s equilibrium of speed, outcome quality, attributes, and cost makes it a more than affordable choice.
