Epson WorkForce Pro WF 5620DWF Review: A quick, capable all-in-one inkjet

This entry is part 30 of 80 in the series Printer

Epson WorkForce Pro WF 5620DWF Review – This inkjet multifunction printer introduced similar laser rivalling features to the OfficeJet Pro 8720 when it went on sale a couple of years ago, and now it has fallen to about the same price. It’s a more conventional-looking box, with a 35-sheet paper feeder on top, and its smaller touchscreen is complemented by a physical number pad for fax dialling.

There’s a USB socket on the front as well as the usual rear connections. Also at the back is a single-sheet feed for special paper, which the OfficeJet Pro lacks. The WorkForce Pro is rated as quieter, at 52dbA compared with 55dbA, although we didn’t have the chance to compare the two side by side.

Epson’s scanning software is less restrictive than HP’s, and printing was straightforward. Text output wasn’t quite as fast, reaching 19.2ppm, but pages of color graphics emerged quickly at 13.1ppm. A 300dpi black-and-white photocopy took eight seconds, and a color one 14 seconds, but a 10-page color document took over twice as long as the OfficeJet Pro managed, at three minutes 43 seconds. Scanning a 300dpi color A4 page took 14 seconds, and a 1,200dpi postcard-sized photo a reasonable 36. Quality was good, though some scans looked over-sharpened.

A full set of four Epson 79XL cartridges costs around £ if you shop around, rated for 2,600 black pages and 2,000 color. You can also buy the colors separately. That gives It running costs that are just a fraction higher than HP’s. Overall, there’s little to choose between these two models – they’re certainly different, but equally capable.

Epson WorkForce Pro WF 5620DWF Review: VERDICT

Sightly smaller and with Epson’s less annoying software, this remains a strong rival to the HP, and with similar speeds on average

    […] A4 page took 14 seconds to scan at a sharp 300 dots per inch (dpi), exactly the same as Epson’s WorkForce Pro WF-5620DWF, but the white background came out slightly bluish. A 1200dpi colour postcard scan took twice as […]
