Epson WorkForce Pro WF-3820 Printer Review

Reviews About Printer

The Epson WorkForce Pro WF3820 is a versatile all-in-one inkjet printer. It has excellent connectivity options and is compatible with the Epson iPrint app, which allows you to print, scan and maintain directly from your mobile device. It has impressive scanner features such as a flatbed and an automatic document feeder, but unfortunately it does not perform double scans. Ink cartridges may need to be replaced frequently due to poor black document page yields, but they are not very expensive and the cost per print is fairly low. In addition, if you change it infrequently, you can buy a larger cartridge.

 


Epson WorkForce Pro WF-3820 Print Speed

Epson claims that the WF3820 can print at high speed. I think this model is pretty fast, especially when compared to other inkjet printers in its class. However, compared to the overall speed of inkjet printers, this model can be below average.

This product is rated 21 pages per minute for black and 11 pages per minute for color. When printing a double-sided document, the speed drops from almost half to 12ppm. Reduced color for black and white and 7ppm. This speed class is slightly slower than the corresponding Epson WorkForce Pro WF4820, which is rated up to 25 pages per minute.

 


Epson WorkForce Pro WF-3820 Print Result

Epson WorkForce Pro printers provide professional quality output to support your business, and the WF3820 is no exception. This model produces better-than-average prints on any document, whether it’s a rich text contract, a graphic-intensive report, or even a marketing photo.

Manipulate text to provide easy-to-read and well-formed characters. Surprisingly, this inkjet can produce sharp, rich blacks that are close to those found in laser printers. My overall score for the ability to print text documents is above average.

 


Easy Connection Setup

Epson WorkForce Pro WF-3820 Printer Review

The WF3820 has built-in wireless, but the WF3820 also supports wired connectivity for reliable connectivity with compatible devices. Standard connectivity options include HiSpeed ​​USB, Ethernet, WiFi and WiFi Direct. The latter can be used to establish peer-to-peer connections to compatible handheld devices.

You can also enjoy mobile printing with full support from Apple AirPrint, Mopria, and Epson Smart Panel App. If you need to edit your photos before printing, or just want to improve your printing experience, you are free to use the Epson Creative Print app and Epson Email Print.

 


Conclusion

Overall, the Epson WorkForce Pro WF3820 is a business-oriented printer specifically designed for small workgroups and offices. This product has a full set of features, combining AIO features with a compact and slim frame. With Epson’s advanced printing technology and built-in wireless, this is the ideal printer for increasing office productivity.

Looking for a wireless printer that offers an AIO solution for business printing? WF3820 may be a good name. However, if you need expandable input capacity, or if you want to enjoy a wider display, you should consider another product.
