Going paperless always sounds like a great idea, but the reality is that you can’t ditch paper entirely, no matter how hard you try. There are always forms that need printing, places that won’t take emailed documents, and sometimes it’s just easier to read a physical printout.
Printers may not be as sexy as smartphones, tablets, and laptops, but the usefulness of a good printer means it can often outlast its flashier gear cousins. Epson knows this well, and they have new printers for both home and work to make life faster and easier!
If you work from home, you will want to take a close look at the Epson Workforce WF-2860. It scans and prints, handles wireless printing via internet and NFC, and uses less power than competing laser printers. A good printer is one of those things you may not immediately think of when you work from home, but trust me, the first time you’re working remotely and an emergency pops up, you want a reliable printer. What’s the point in having the perfect home office setup if you need to run to Kinkos, or worse, print out and scan poor quality documents because you’re still using your printer from college! And at only $129.99, it’s not exactly going to break the bank. You probably spent more on the standing desk you’ve used twice. The printer is a much better investment.
Maybe you need something for more everyday needs. In that case, Epson has the Expression Home XP-5100 and the Expression Premium XP-6000. The XP-5100 is wireless, works with Epson Creative Print so you can cover the fridge in printed collages of your favorite Instagrams, and it has a compact footprint so you’ll have more space for your collection of antique spider webs or whatever strikes your fancy. Meanwhile, if you’re solely looking for a way to immortalize your photos, the XP-6000 prints in a smoking 15 seconds. It’s like The Flash, but as a photo printer. The XP-5100 retails for $119.99 and the XP-6000 for $149.99
Printers might not be thrilling but they’re incredibly useful, and Epson’s new line will keep you going until we truly do become a paperless society!
