REVIEWS

Epson Wf 7820

Epson Wf 7840

Epson WF-7820 is a wide-format, multi-functional printer that is ideal for small to mid-size home/office printing, scanning, copying, and faxing needs. It can print on 13-by-19-inch paper types and scan, copy, and fax 11-by-17-inch documents. This printer is designed as a replacement for Epson WF-7710. Even if its printouts are excellent, the running cost is quite high, and neither comes with bulk ink nor an ink subscription program.

Epson WF-7840 is also a wide-format printer that is designed as a replacement for Epson WF-7720. This printer's print quality and other functions are the same as the Epson WF-7820. These printers support the auto-duplex print, scan, copy, and fax features and come with a convenient wireless setup and Bluetooth connectivity options.

One major difference between these two printers is the paper capacity. The Epson WF-7840 printer has two cassettes and a 50-sheet rear tray. At the same time, the Epson WF-7820 printer has a 250-sheet paper cassette and one-sheet multipurpose tray.
