Homework can be boring. My son loves it when we make his homework into games. Most recently we created flashcards for his spelling words using a template from Teachers Pay Teachers. Having a reliable printer like the “Epson WF-2860 All-In-One Printer, Scanner and Copier” lets us create fun homework games that make homework time more fun.
The “Epson WF-2860” was easy to set up on our network. It comes with a “Start Here” guide and an installation CD. The guide walks you through the process step by step on how to set up the printer.
The LCD screen can be adjusted to your viewing preference. The 2.4″colour touchscreen allows me to easily print, copy, scan and fax.
The printer takes four ink cartridges, “Epson 202-I”. It is recommended to only use Epson cartridges as others may damage your printer. The print colour is slightly dull but overall I am satisfied with the print quality.
The wireless features are what makes this printer exciting. I can scan and copy directly from the printer to my computer or various “cloud” options. This required that I install the Epson Event Manager. I struggled to get this to work, but I’m quite confident that it was more “me” that was the issue.
If you prefer a more customized scanning experience I would suggest that you use the Epson scanning software to scan. Here you can adjust colours, crop and set various other settings. The scan quality was amazing. The colours are amazingly bright and the image was very sharp.
It allows you to print from your computer, tablet or smartphone. I love that everyone in our family can print, regardless of the device they are on. My daughter is often looking for craft ideas online and being able to print from her tablet lets her print examples of projects to work
I also like that I can email print documents directly to the printer. Today I emailed a PDF attachment directly to the printer and it printed with ease.
I like that it is compact. The paper tray slides in underneath and the LCD panel tucks out of the way as well allowing it to fit into a small home office.
I was unsuccessful in using the 30-page Auto Document Feeder on the copier. It keeps telling me that I have a paper jam. I also was unable to test the fax feature as I don’t have a fax number.
This is an affordable All-in-One printer that has many features that will make your print jobs convenient and easy.
