As most of you know, Mariah and I have what you might call a ‘busy’ house. With 4 of the six kids here full time, and a continuous stream of friends coming through to work on school projects and assist in the demolition of the home that we are trying to maintain, along with the schools all requiring the kids to present technology-assisted projects and papers…our old-school little HP printer was on its last leg.
This is where the good folks at Epson come in. I was offered one of their very cool all-in-one printers to test out for review. When the printer arrived, I was blown away with both its look and the list of primary features. I knew that this was going to allow3 me to save face with the kids and I’d be able to get rid of the “so 2005” printer that I have been trying to make do with.
Pulling the WorkForce 610 from its box, I began to think that it might be a bit tough (even for me) to get installed on our network.
This machine boasts a sleek black look, is no bigger than a typical toaster oven and does absolutely everything. Besides printing about 40 pages per minute, the WorkForce 610 also serves as a fax machine, scanner, copy machine and digital media card reader. Designed brilliantly to connect via USB to any computer or independently onto a network via WiFi or Ethernet, the WorkForce now services many of our technological needs…all in one place.
Scanning the directions and knowing the delicate state of our home network…I had some concerns about trying to set it up wirelessly. I decided to try anyway. After all was said and done…it was a snap! The whole thing was set up in about 15 minutes and there was no (typical) trial and error. It just ran through the set up and we were all printing in no time. It amazes me how something so technologically advanced can be so simple to operate.
One of the really cool things is the fact that our daughter, who lives out back in the guest house, can use her wireless laptop and print things straight to my desk.
Once again, the folks at Epson have agreed to give one of these technological masterpieces to one lucky reader. All you have to do to enter this giveaway is leave a comment and for an extra entry, tweet the contest with a link (make sure to let me know if you tweeted- in another comment) Contest ends and winner will be chose on Sunday December 20th.
The printer retails for $199 - but if you go to the Epson store today you can pick up one of these bad boys for only $99.
I like this printer so much that I am also adding it to my future article which is going to showcase my picks for the top tech products for 2009.
Trust me…EVERY HOUSE NEEDS THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!
