    Such an ingenious idea for professionals on the go

    Posted

    I'm an attorney and travel out of town about three times a week to client meetings, court, site inspections, etc. and often times I find that I need to have something printed on the spot and fast. If I'm not at a hotel or business center, it can be challenging to find somewhere to print, and even then I have to pay to have them print something. In a pinch I've had to go to UPS or Kinko's to print out one document. Not only is this a hassle, but a waste of time. I knew there had to be a better solution to my problem, so I started researching portable printers. A colleague recommended the Epson Workforce WF-100 Mobile Wireless Printer and after researching comparable models from different companies, I decided the Epson Workforce seemed to be the best choice. Let me tell you, I was NOT disappointed!! I absolutely love my Epson Workforce portable printer. It is small and lightweight and fits right into my briefcase, purse or book-bag. What's even better is that it comes with a rechargeable battery built in it so that I'm not fumbling around with extra cords. It also prints on legal size paper with no problem. I really like that the printer also works with Wi-fi or if you know that you will be in an area without Wi-fi, like your car or for me the courthouse, you can use the USB cord to connect to the printer from your computer. I not only use the printer for work purposes, but I can send pictures from my iPhone or iPad and it will print those as well with great photo quality. This beats printing out pictures at CVS or Costco any day! All-in-all, I have no complaints about the Epson Workforce WF-100, and am very satisfied with my purchase. In fact, I've told multiple people at my law firm, and was able to convince my boss to purchase a few for other colleagues to take with them when they travel out of town for work. In a paperless age, being able to pull up documents on a computer or iPad is helpful, but if you need a client to sign a document right there, or forgot an important document that needs to be handed into the court or passed out at a business meeting, the option of printing it right on the spot is such a lifesaver. I've also told other business professional friends that are always on the go, and they love the idea of this printer, and some have purchased it as well. I've always been impressed with Epson's ingenuity, and once again they have not ceased to amaze me. For the size, weight, efficiency, quality, wi-fi/USB connectivity capability and user-friendly features, you are not going to find a better portable printer than the Epson Workforce WF-100! Sure there may be cheaper ones on the market, but don't forget, you get what you pay for. Do yourself a favor and get it right the first time with the Epson printer.

    Easy WIFI link; great quality prints

    I needed a mobile printer that would print by a direct WIFI connection from my iPhone or iPad, or Windows laptop. The WIFI direct connect instructions made this possible. NOTE: only 4 connections are available by the printers direct WIFI connect. Otherwise, you may also connect and print through your network WIFI. As an attorney, I do not always have access to a Courthouse's WIFI, and thus needed the direct connect option. There is also direct email option that you can do on initial set up. This works great with the local network WIFI or direct USB connection. It's really delayed if you opt to send it when the unit is utilizing its AP option over the Internet. Quality of printed paper is superior. It prints fairly fast and is relatively quiet, which is a necessity in a courtroom. It has a 20 paper feed, which is better than most mobile printers. It feeds paper easily. It comes with a black cartridge and color cartridge, as well as an installed maintenance cartridge with an additional maintenance cartrige. I purchased an additional set of ink cartridges at time of purchase. The maintenance cartridges must be purchased from EPSON and cost $6.99. It won't run if either ink cartridge is empty or if the maintenance cartridge is full, so stock up. It comes with an internal battery as well as working off the AC adapter. From my review of other products, often times the battery pack is not included. The internal self-charging battery is an added benefit if you must print in the absence of an available electric outlet. It does come with a USB connection that will charge the battery. NOTE: the battery will not charge while the unit is in use. The initial battery charge on set-up takes approximately 2.5 hours, so it's the first step. Using an iPhone or iPad, it is possible to edit and print documents from Word, and utilizing the Cloud and Document Pro 7, print directly to the printer. It makes changing and printing contracts or wills away from the office a spot-on process for clients. I have read that it prints approximately 100 sheets per cartridge. I cannot confirm this as I have not printed as many pages. Most important, it's lightweight and well-designed, and AFFORDABLE!! Very pleased with this printer from EPSON!!

    Where do I begin!? Don't let the small size fool you. It can print 4x6 photos to the Legal sized paper with ease. This is by far very portable. A competing Canon mobile printer is smaller than this unit, but the Epson outperforms it in my opinion, and here's why. This EPSON printer comes w/ a rechargeable battery built in. The Canon? It's optional! The HP competitor? It's OPTIONAL! Right out the box, you have the ability to print without being attached to power. That's huge for me because a MOBILE printer shouldn't have to be tied down to a power outlet . It saved my tail today because I was near no power and only had my laptop and the microUSB cable that came w/ the printer and the printing paper. Sure - wifi is good, but something direct and reliable, you can't go wrong w/ USB and this printer not only uses a MICRO-USB cord, it can RECHARGE ITSELF from Micro USB, too! (ONLY CHARGES WHEN PRINTER IS OFF).... another down fall, the battery is BUILT IN and NON-REPLACEABLE. So, unlike the competitors, w/ a replaceable battery, this one does not. The printer is no speed daemon. However, considering it's purpose, who's the complain!? This beats driving to a print shop ANY day and I don't have to rely on expensive Hotel printers anymore!! One other thing - there's a "Maintenance Box" in this machine, it absorbs "waste ink" from functions like cleaning printheads, borderless photos, and daily operation. It WILL become full. Fortunately, the tank is like a few bucks. It will absorb the waste ink instead of risking it leaking into your printer bag when transported. All in all, I like but I do worry about the printhead reliability as w/ past EPSONs I've owned - they've all had clogged heads eventually unlike my former HP Mobile OfficeJet where you get a new head w/ each ink cartridge change. All in all - a good value, portable and powerhouse for its size.

    Great Printer for a Someone Always on the Go!

    While searching for a product that can help a road warrior like myself print documents on the fly as access to normal printers isn't always convenient. I decided to try this product and boy am I ever glad I did. It's been a huge addition to my business. Sure it's not the fastest printer around...but its about the convenience of a mobile solution as opposed to spending time transferring things in e-mails or on flash drives and then heading to the nearest FedEx for $30 print jobs. The re-chargeable battery eliminates the need for a power source (and it keeps the weight of the product fairly negligible for carrying in my briefcase). The ability to connect over wi-fi or utilize the USB cord is also something that surprised me. I haven't had the same wi-fi issues some of the other reviewers have had but admittedly so, the printer works best with the USB connection. I haven't had ink leakage as of yet, but then again, I'm constantly using it. I've been quite happy with the value of this printer.

    I like the printer. It is very difficult to follow the directions and I had to call Epson several times. The WIFI connection was supposed to take up to 60 + characters. This is not so, it takes only 8, I had 11 characters for my router. I changed my pass code to 8 characters. Unfortunately some of my other gadgets in the house like wireless security camera etc. would not work with the new code. To fix this problem I had to have 2 technicians (not a free service call) from the Internet Provider and Security Systems Company to come to my house to change the setting for the other gadgets to work again. I did not choose to take this route and reset my router to my 11. Now I use the printer only with USB connection cord which works for me. It works like a charm now. If you need Wi-Fi with this printer I would not recommend it. Perhaps the Wi-Fi might work with an I-Pad which I did try.

    Difficult printer to use

    My office jet mobile Bluetooth printer started giving me problems after 2 years. Had to get another mobile printer to use with my tablet while in the car. Noone makes Bluetooth any longer. Best they could come up with was this Epson workforce 100, which has wifi direct, as well as hot spot compatability. It was near impossible to set up. I spent hours with the Geek squad, multiple calls to Epson support, calls to Verizon support since I couldn't get it to hook up with my hotspot. Noone seems to know very much about the printer. The most helpful was Verizon tier 2 support. It is possible that Epson support may have been able to assist me.....if I had been able to understand any of their tech support agents. There is nothing more frustrating than needing help and not being able to understand someone. For this reason alone, I will never buy another Epson product.

    Great mini portable printer

    Posted

    I would totally recommend this printer for students, but more so for college students. It's a portable printer so you're able to take it anywhere you'd like and share with friends. Some colleges make you pay for printing papers, but this printer would totally save your life. In a get-up and go society it's so convenient for you to have. I'm always using it to print bills, school assignments, e-mail, etc. The only downfall to having the portable printer is: the capacity it holds for ink is low. So I'm constantly running out of ink every 2 months or so. But its doable. And I've recently run into a second problem. The printer reads: "Maintenace box is at the end of its service life. Turn off and replace it. T2950" I've had it over 2 years so I guess you can say the Maintenace box life lasts 2 to 2 1/2 years. I don't know if that's normal or not but doesn't bother me much. But besides the ink running out so fast and the second problem, I need to overcome. It's the best printer ever!

    Very Good Printer

    I'm a truck driver and there is a lot of paperwork involved in trucking. I receive load information and various permits by email. This printer eliminates the need to find a truck stop or other location to print the needed documents. It can be hard to find ink for this printer. I like that I can email documents to this printer for later and I really like that it will easily print envelopes of different shapes and sizes. Prior to using this printer I used and still use an Epson DS 30 portable scanner to efficiently keep track of this mountain of paperwork. Both are fine office machines. When combined with my laptop and my android they give me complete office capability any and everywhere.
