The Epson WorkForce 30 Color Inkjet Printer is ideal for a small business and home office. It can produce black text with laser-quality output at laser-fast speeds - about two times faster than similar printers. Its small, compact design fits in even the smallest work area, yet it is well suited for high-volume printing - thanks to its dual black ink cartridges. The prints from the WorkForce 30 are smudge, fade, and water resistant, and can even stand up to highlighter pen use. It not only saves you time by printing fast, but will also save you money with its individual color ink cartridges, two-sided printing capability, and EnergyStar compliant rating.

    A great value. This inexpensive printer gets the job done. From opening the box to printing the first sheet took only 15 minutes. (A great relief after dealing with some other popular brands!)
    This is not a photo printer, although it will print pictures that is not what it is intended for. We are using it mostly for business. (printing documents, receipts etc.) Very fast print speeds.
    Some complain that it is noisy and it IS a bit louder than some other printers. That is not an issue to me.
    This is my second Epson and I would definitely recommend it.

    I've used Epson printers since they first hit the market. Sadly, I have to say this is the worst one I've ever owned. It was extremely frustrating to set up (finally had to call in help from my mac-guru) because of a driver issue with Macs.

    II'm also not impressed by the noise it makes. It sounds like it's going to break apart every time it starts to print -- bang! bang! grrrrrinnnned BANG! It's the only printer I've had that makes this much noise.

    The print quality is poor, at best. It's brand new, with new ink and it prints like it's had 1000 documents run through it without a cleaning cycle.

    Just needed a printer that would do all the basics and do them well. Main use is for printing text documents. Black text printing is excellent. Ink is pricey, but having the indiv. ink tanks is a plus.

      Not really laser speed, but fast enough for low-volume printing. Separate YCM and 2 black cartridges, so no wasted ink. Using it to print UPS Worldship labels with company logo. It does the job for a very low price.

        So far, I LIKE IT!

                I have two of these. Both are used for general text and image printing. It also does a creditable job printing photographs on glossy and semi-gloss paper.

                I like that it can do from very fast draft-quality, through moderate speed quiet mode, to high quality business printing.

                Its only drawback is the rather lengthly start-up routine, which I avoid by never turning it off.

                  I am a Real Estate inspector and carry my computer and printer everywhere I go. The Workforce 30 is small enough to be portable, but big enough to handle the high capacity that I run through it. Buying ink in BULK on the internet makes it even better. I could by smaller, but I would loose speed and inexpensive supplies. Wouldn't travel without it!

                          I use this printer for home use. I do a lot of printing and this is a great printer for Black and White along with great color printing. Would definitely purchase is again.

                          Great for heat press transfers.
                          Super fast for basic text printing.

                            Use as a confidential printer at work. It's fast and quality is very good. Prints great color charts. Using with an IMac and had to call support to get the driver to work. It is a bit noisy but...
