We all search for the perfect Christmas present for him or her and rarely think of giving a useful present such as an inkjet printer. If we have already selected the main gift for a loved one, friend or colleague, how about considering buying a replacement inkjet printer to make their start back to work or school more exciting!
The Epson Workforce range of printers are very affordable, cost very little to run on compatible ink cartridges and are energy efficient with up to 80% less energy consumption than its competition in the laser printer market. The Epson Workforce is an all-in-one printer, that is to say it’s a printer, scanner and copier. Home users and businesses of all sizes can benefit from the low energy consumption and the Business Pro range has advanced features to integrate with existing networks.
The big factor though no matter how big the initial savings are on the printer is the cost of the ink cartridges. No point in buying a printer as a gift for someone and them having them crippled with the running costs. For example, take the Epson Workforce WF-2530 Wi-Fi All-in-one. This printer can be bought for under €100 and uses four colour ink cartridges. These inkjet cartridges are becoming available shortly in Ireland as compatibles and can offer savings of up to 100% against the original brand cartridges.
This printer is compatible with both PC and Apple Mac, has a black and white text print speed of 34 pages per minute with a speed of 18 pages per minute for colour. The scanner and copier facility provides an excellent 1200 x 2400dpi optical resolution. The printer is wireless and is enabled with Apple Airprint, Google Cloud Print and Email Print. Finally, photo editing is possible via the integral software.
Pound for pound this printer is excellent value for money and ahead of many of its rivals. All in all, this could be the perfect Christmas present and although they will open it on Christmas Day may well decide not to plat with it until the New Year!
