Quality Printer/Fax

By 

from Dover, FL

Comments about Epson WorkForce 520 All-In-One Printer:

Purchased this printer to replace an older model HP and it has been well worth the money.

Performance
Makes clear copies and works faster than my old machine.

Copy Quality
Have had no problems printing high quality prints for office usage. I have not used it for photos yet.

Ink/Paper Use
Paper has not jammed at all and the ink usage seems to be down significantly over the older HP we had to replace.

Ease of Use
I am finding it a little harder to learn the touch screen and it's functions. There are two trays for paper which keeps me from reloading paper as often which is a plus.

Durability
Seems to be working beautifully with no issuse at all.

Design
Sleek and modern looking with touch screen doing all the work in the background.

My favorite printer so far!

By 

from Westminster, SC

Comments about Epson WorkForce 520 All-In-One Printer:

I bought this printer when it was on sale and purchased the extended warranty because I wear out printers pretty fast. I've not had the least bit of problems out of this printer since owning it! I love how quickly and quietly it prints. I print lots of things and the speed of this one makes printing a lot easier. I like that it can be used wireless. There are lots and lots of different print options with this thing. Everything works great and I find this to be my most favorite printer! I'd recommend it to everyone!

Performance
Better than all the tons of others I've ever owned!

Copy Quality
Perfect!

Ease of Use
Self explanatory and lots of options.

Durability
Held up better than any I've ever owned and still going strong!

Great for home office

By 

from New Philadelphia, OH

Comments about Epson WorkForce 520 All-In-One Printer:

I have had this printer for over a year and have had a few issues with it. For the most part I like this printer a lot and would buy again if needed another printer. The ink is cheap and you can buy off name for it or refill yourself, however I find it’s a paint to refill yourself. The ink does last a long time whether you buy name brand or off name brand.
The pictures always came out great. I have had no issues with it. The screen is easy to see and read. The scanner and copier are easy to use and work very nice. Very little warm up time needed for either uses. The fax machine words great after you figure out how to use it. I sent many blank pages thinking I was sending a fax. But once I got the hang of it, it went great.
The con’s is that the wireless does not always work. You have to restart your printer a few times to get it to pick up back up and my router sits right next to the printer so I know that is not an issue. Overall it’s a great printer and one in all device.

Good overall all-in-one.

By 

from Gardendale, AL

Comments about Epson WorkForce 520 All-In-One Printer:

It's a little noisy, but prints fast and great quality.

Performance
Prints are clean and crisp.

Copy Quality
Scans to print (copy) are just as good as any standard copier I've ever used.

Ink/Paper Use
Seems to go through ink quickly, but at least the separate cartridges allow for not having to replace colors that aren't out yet.

Ease of Use
I wish the software/drivers for the MAC were better developed so that the functions like scanning to PC or PDF, etc would work without having to load the Epson Scan software and doing them from the computer.

Durability
Seems solidly built.

Design
Panel and functions are all easily accessible.

Workforce 520 - ok, but not as clear as HP

        Comments about Epson WorkForce 520 All-In-One Printer:

        Bought this printer for home use, with the occasional small amount of business printing. Have used this for about 4 months, and like the features - faxing is easy, copying quick, scans ok, but color printing is not consistent. Had to print 10 color flyers, and 3 had lines and missing areas. My previous HP was a little slower, but always gave good results.

        Great Printer

        By 

        from Minnetonka, MN

        Comments about Epson WorkForce 520 All-In-One Printer:

        "All in One Printer", yes this thing does everything and it does it well. I bought one for college and it does what it needs to do and more. It's simple and easy to use and figure out. It prints things extremely quick as well. It's not low quality either, it's all top notch and very high quality prints. It does everything it is supposed to and more. Whenever I need to print something or scan anything I just plug it into my computer, turn it on, hint print and it's there within seconds. It's what it's supposed to do, but I'm sure many would be impressed by the speed and quality this printer is capable of. It's a good printer for the price, and the ink is as cheap as you can get. A lot of times you can spend a ton on Ink and be out within a couple weeks. Although you may run out of ink around the same time, they aren't as expensive as most ink cartridges out there. This is definitely great for college students such as myself who live on a tight budget. This is a great printer for anyone. It is a very solid product and Epson did a great job.
