Epson Workforce 30 - A good performer at a reasona

by Don Niles on 10/15/2008

The Workforce 30 is a compact, inkjet printer, using 5 cartridges. It has provisions for 2 Black cartridges which is a nice feature. I checked on replacement ink cartridges and the prices seem reasonable. The printer installed in a snap. It draws its power from the USB hub on the PC so it should be directly connected to the PC USB port and not through an external multi-hub device. The bundled picture processing software was easy to install and works well. I had the whole thing up and running in no more than 15 minutes. Print speed is good, as is picture quality. If you wanted to be really picky, the printer is a little noisy when printing at high speed black only. I print family photos and they look good. I am not a digital photographic pro so it might not meet their standards. But, for the average person, its a good performer at a reasonable price.

Great printer for the price

on 3/10/2009

When you consider what the cartridges alone cost, it's like getting the printer almost free! Good quality printing . . . I'm not looking for something to print photographs but an everyday printer and it has been great for that (I can't judge its photo printing capability). My only complaint so far is that it is noisy, much noiser than my last printer (which was also an Epson), especially when pulling down the first sheet of paper. But when it gets going, it is fast and somewhat quieter.
