Epson has had a lot of success with its Workforce Pro range of inkjet printers and all-in-ones. This is one reason, maybe, why it’s home office range is now called Workforce, without the Pro. The Epson Workforce WF-2530WF is a budget all-in-one, but still includes full fax functions and wireless connection, including direct print from mobile devices.
Epson has managed to reduce the size of its all-in-ones recently, coining the term Small-in-One for the new designs. This is a neat device, with a single paper feed from a near-vertical tray at the rear and output to an extending tray at the front. The tray can only take 100 sheets at a time, but at least it’s easy to load.
There’s no separate photo tray, but there’s a 30-sheet Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) on the flatbed scanner, which adds the convenience of feeding multi-page documents without adding much to the overall height of the machine. The scanner uses LED illumination and a Contact Image Sensor (CIS) and has a respectable resolution of 2,400 x 1,200ppi.
The control panel is well laid out and runs most of the width of the machine’s front. There’s only a two-line LCD display, without a backlight, though this is intelligently used and in general it’s easy to work your way round.
The Workforce WF-2530FW connects via USB or wireless and there are phone line and third-party handset sockets at the rear, for fax cables.
Lift the whole of the scanner section and you can get at the four separate ink cartridges in the print head. They’re available in standard and XL versions and clipping them into position is quick and easy.
Epson supplies a copy of Presto! Page Manager 9 for document management and OCR, as well as its own utilities for fax and net configuration. Wireless setup is straightforward, if your router has WPS – most modern routers do.
