I bought an Epson WorkForce 645 about a year ago. I chose the Epson brand based on the reviews I read on Amazon and elsewhere. I looked at the technical specs of Epson’s whole line of printers, and ended up choosing the Workforce 645 because it was cheapest printer in their line-up that was designed to be able to print on cardstock (which I like to use when printing flashcards, games, etc.) and can automatically print double-sided (I get confused when I try to do it manually!) It also has a built-in scanner, which I have found to be very convenient.
I’ve been pretty happy with my printer overall — I’d give it a 4 stars out of 5. Sometimes, the printer claims there is a paper jam for no reason when it is trying to print double-sided. And sometimes, when printing a full page of color, there are some patchy, un-even areas. But overall, it has performed pretty well for me. The ink is a little pricey IMO, but it is probably no worse than any other brand’s ink.
Do you have a color printer to recommend (or not recommend)? Please share about it in the comments!
