Epson Stylus Office BX305FW

RH Numbers

The entry level office all-in-one in Epson’s range, this machine has most of the design features of its bigger siblings. The signature curved top provides a 30-sheet ADF and although the control panel only offers a two-line, mono LCD, it’s sufficient for most tasks. The only feed tray is a 120-sheet, near-vertical one at the back and that feeds to a telescopic output tray at the front. I saw nothing like Epson’s claimed speeds, clocking 3.6ppm and 1.3ppm for black and colour; both very slow. Black text quality is noticeably jagged, though colour graphics are bright and photos presentable. Page costs using high-yield cartridges are 2.6p and 9.6p, with the colour cost being high.

Epson Workforce Pro WP-4525DNF

RH Numbers
RH Editor's Choice

This hunky all-in-one sits in the middle of Epson’s Workforce Pro range. It has a 30-sheet ADF and a 63mm colour LCD in the centre of a well-organised control panel, which includes a numeric pad for fax. There are USB and Ethernet sockets, but no wireless connection. A 250-sheet front paper cassette and an 80-sheet rear tray for special media provide comprehensive paper handling. The printer offers 13.6ppm in black and at 8.5 sides per minute duplex, as fast as a budget laser. Print quality is excellent, from a newly designed print engine, and running costs can be as low as 1.1p for ISO black and 4.3p for ISO colour. An exceptional all-in-one, available online for about £80 less than the RRP.
