The Epson Workforce Pro WF-4630 is an all-in-one inkjet printer with scan and copy functions, an automatic document feeder and built-in faxing. It works with Windows and Mac OS. The capacity of the main paper tray is 250 sheets, a generous size.
The WorkForce ET-4550 EcoTank wireless all-in-one offers revolutionary cartridge-free printing with easy-to-fill supersized ink tanks. It includes up to 2 years of ink in the box1. That’s an incredible amount of ink — enough to print up to 11,000 black/8,500 color pages2, and equivalent to about 50 ink cartridge sets3.
Printers meant for home use fall into two categories: inexpensive models that typically cost far less than $100 for single-function printers and $150 or less for MFPs; and highly photo-centric printers, with prices of $150 or more for single-function models and $300 or more for MFPs.
For dedicated photo printers, however, the cost per photo is typically easy to calculate, because most manufacturers sell print packs with enough ink and paper for a given number of photos. To get the cost per photo for a dedicated photo printer, simply divide the cost of the print pack by the number of photos it will print.
For a home printer, you probably need color, but for an office model, if all you print are business documents, there may be no reason to spend money on color output. Keep in mind, however, that many color lasers can print at high enough quality to make your own advertising handouts and trifold brochures, which could save you money compared with printing small quantities at your local print shop.
Like the Canon Pixma TS9020 and the long line of six-ink, consumer-grade photo printers before it, the Canon Pixma TS9120 Wireless Inkjet All-in-One is a highly capable photo printer and just a marginal office AIO, due primarily to its lack of an ADF, sluggish document printing, and somewhat high running costs (all six-ink printers cost more than their four-ink counterparts to use).
