We recommend you always choose a model printer from the Epson Workforce range, instead of one from the Epson Home range, mainly range due to the higher duty cycle of these machines, and the availability of refillable ink cartridges. But what else gives the WF-3620DWF the edge over it's cheaper Epson rivals?
This Workforce printer features a high resolution print head (4800 x 2400 dpi.), capable of producing decent photographs and pleasing text. The scanner has a useful resolution of 1200x2400dpi, good enough for scanning most images. Also included is an automatic document feeder (ADF), which can automatically feed documents through the scanning and fax facility.
Just like many of it's rivals, The Workforce WF-3620DWF possesses a variety of connectivity options. There is WiFi Direct (No Internet router required), WiFi Lan, Epson Connect supporting Apple Airprint and Google CloudPrint, and USB. There is also a useful SD memory card reader, with support for other types of cards using an adapter (not supplied).
The WF3620DWF has a generous front paper tray with a 250 sheet capacity. The paper feeds from the front, and comes back out at the front, meaning the paper has to bend 180 degrees, preventing the use of thick media that could jam. If you need to print on card then we would suggest you buy a machine with a rear paper feed.
For home use, the Epson Workforce WF3620DWF may appear to be over-equipped. For example, how many times do we scan multiple sheets or use a fax machine at home? However, small office printers need to be more robust with a stronger build quality. Meaning that the printer may be designed to withstand regular use, making it a more reliable machine. So buying a small office printer may not be such a bad idea after all? Particularly when they come with a colour touchscreen and memory card reader.
The Epson Workforce WF-3620DWF typically scores 8.3 out of 10 on review websites.
As an alternative, why not take a look at the Epson Workforce WF2510WF All-in-One printer. You don't get a colour display, ADF, or memory card reader, but it is a reliable machine with a good duty cycle.
