Epson America has expanded its line of business printers with four new WorkForce all-in-one printers -- the Epson WorkForce WF-3540, WorkForce WF-3520, WorkForce WF-2540 and WorkForce WF-2530.
The WorkForce all-in-ones also include built-in wireless and Ethernet networking and offer the ability to print and scan from mobile devices such as an iPad, iPhone, tablet, or smartphone. With Epson Connect, users can print documents on-the-go.
According to Jennifer Liao, product manager, Consumer Ink Jets, Epson America, the WorkForce WF-3540 and WF-3520 offer the world's fastest two-sided print speeds -- 15 ISO ppm (black) and 9.2 ISO ppm (color) -- and printing costs up to 40% lower than color laser printers. The two models also offer savings up to 50% on paper with automatic two-sided printing, scanning, copying and faxing, she adds.
WorkForce WF-3540 and WF-3520 offer productivity features including high page capacity (500 sheets for the WF-3540; 250 for the WF-3520) and extra high capacity ink cartridges. Plus, the 30-sheet duplex ADF, sturdy front paper trays, and rear paper feed accommodate a variety of paper types and stock including envelopes, card stock and other specialty media.
The models also offer an improved user interface with features that allow businesses to easily navigate their printer's wide range of features, says Liao. The WorkForce WF-3540's 3.5-inch touch LCD is equipped with new gesture navigation so users can "swipe" through the printer menu; the WF-3520 features a 2.5-inch LCD with a backlit touch panel for improved visibility.
The Epson WorkForce WF-3540 (US$199.99), WorkForce WF-3520 ($149.99), WorkForce WF-2540 ($129.99), and WorkForce WF-2530 ($99.99), will be available this fall through major computer, office and electronic superstores, mail order, and the Epson Store (www.epsonstore.com).
