I use this printer for our small business in the home office, along with some personal printing of school stuff for my daughter, and some pictures. It does everything I need and more! I can copy, scan, print, including double sided scanning and printing, envelopes, photos, and probably a few things I haven't thought of yet! It also works with my wireless network, and there's an app to print directly from my smartphone. The ink cartridges that it came with still have plenty of ink after about 5 months of moderate to heavy printing in both color and b&w, and the ink doesn't smear when I highlight my printouts! It has two paper trays with multiple paper sizes, including legal size paper, and an auto document feeder that I've used to send a 54 page fax! And it closes up nicely to prevent dust from collecting in the ADF. I haven't imported pictures directly to the USB port yet, but apparently it has that capacity. Customer Service was quick, responsive and effectively helped me the one time I needed to call for a scanning question I couldn't figure out on my own. The one problem I have is I get a line when I use my ADF to scan, fax or copy (it isn't there when I use the flat scanner). I haven't called to see if there is a specific thing I can do for this yet, and cleaning it as suggested in the User's Guide didn't seem to help. All in all, I am EXTREMELY happy with this all-in-one (that I got on SALE!!!), and I would recommend this for even home use, as it is also very affordable, even at the MSRP.

New toy

Having finally replaced my trusted Photosmart , I decided to try this Epson . OMG - the scanner is the pits . If you are getting this machine to scan anything with depth , look elsewhere . Tried to scan the marks on a spoon and failed miserably . For quick printing it is fine - as a scanner . Capital N capital O

Good buy for the buck

By

The 840 has been a workhorse through several local elections with a tremendous amount of printing completed to create lists for canvassing neighborhoods. The only problem I had with it was the ink cartridge compatibility. I started using OEM cartridges and, in the middle of switching to the black ink cartridge, the printer failed to recognize the black replacement cartridge. This was after having replaced the color cartridges. I now have blank streaks occasionally that will not correct or repair themselves, even with the maintenance function. It's about time to replace the old workhorse, possibly with another Epson. I would just like to find one that takes the same cartridges, so I can use what is left here!

Lasted 3 1/2 years

By

I wouldn't consider myself a high volume user, probably printed around 12 pages a month if that. Recently, the printer started printing almost blank pages, with just a little color, and no black. I replaced the black ink, same thing happened. Ran the nozzle cleaning, and it fixed it, but only for a week,then started again. Got to the point where I have to run the nozzle cleaning every time I have to print. I guess what disappoints me is it didn't get much use on a monthly basis, so I expected it to last longer.Maybe it would have if it was used more so the nozzles wouldn't clog, but who knows? In the market for a new printer, looking at color lasers now, should be more reliable than inkjets.

CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT!!

By

This is my second Workforce. I got this one for the wireless capabilities. I've had the Workforce 840 for almost 3 years and it still works great! The ink lasts long too. I love the double paper trays as when I'm not printing close to the printer and the first tray is out, it will pick up paper from the second tray. I love the ability to scan my documents straight to the jump drive without my computer being on. I can't live without this printer. It also makes a great phone charger with the USB on the front. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!

840 Great All-in-One

By

This unit has been very dependable for the past 3 yrs. I use it on my home Wi-Fi and it is shared for 5 family computers. It has great color reproduction for photos as well as other printed materials. The scanner and Fax unit works real well. One of the best aspects is that the ink cartridges are much more reasonable in cost compared to many competitors.

Works fast

By

This printer is fast. Does color and b/w printing very well. Only problem is that the Automatic feeder tracking is slightly off. Just broke this week after 4 years. Will see about getting it fixed.

This is a fantastic printer. I haven't found anything I wanted to do, that it didn't work very well for. I would recommend Epson to everybody. I hope you'll be as impressed as I am.

Epson 840 All-in-one printer

By

Print wirelessly from your iPad, smart phone, PC. Incoming and outgoing fax. Scanner. Each color with its own cartridge. Two paper trays so you don't run out of paper printing a large job. Prints envelopes. I have not found one thing to complain about with this printer.

Workforce - Workhorse All-In-One Printer

I have been a fan of Epson printers, but my Workforce 840 has proven to be a workhorse printer. My Workforce 840 is easy to use and has scan and fax capabilities which I use on a regulary basis.

DRY INK Heads

By

Works very well when used several times per week. If not used for more than a week or so, the heads need to be cleaned again, and again.
