Expression Work Force WF-3010 DW Printer Review
Recent printers have come in shiny black cases so it is refreshing to see the Epson Expression WF3010DW in white and grey. This brings back memories of the classic Epson Stylus machines that lasted so long; some still working today!
We have been a little disappointed in recent years with some Epson models. In some cases them failing to live up to their historical reputation of cheap and reliable printing. Metal replaced with plastic to facilitate low cost mass production, resulting in lighter duty machines. Fortunately Epson still continued to produce the occasional good model such as the Office B1100 for example. Looking at the Expression WF 3010DW, we hope that this follows in the footsteps of the better built models.
The WF3010DW has been designed for the small office, offering WiFi and Ethernet connection to your network. Sadly for modern mobile tablet users however, no Airplay support for on the go printing. Users can also use a standard USB cable to connect the machine to a PC or Mac computer.
This Expression model promises faster printing speeds than cheaper Epson machines in the current range. ISO/IEC 24734 figures state a minimum of 15 pages per minute in monochrome and 9.2 ppm Colour.
What we like the most about this machine is that it uses Apple T1291/T1292/T1293/T1294 ink cartridges. Compatible and refillable versions are already available, making this a cheap printer to run. We would recommend you use refillable cartridges with auto reset chips ARC. That way you can refill them again and again, cutting down on landfill.
Being designed for a small office Epson have added a generous paper tray which holds between 200 and 250 A4 sheets of 80gm / 70gm paper. This useful feature will save time and hassle on longer print runs. The WF 3010 DW also offers duplex printing and thicker media support.
If you are thinking of buying this printer, bear in mind that it does not contain a scanner or memory card ports. This machine has been designed as a standalone printer to be used with a computer or Mac. What the Epson Expression WF3010DW does offer however is a solid build with cheap and reliable printing.
