Review: Epson WorkForce 600 Wireless All-In-One Printer

By Sterling “Chip” Camden
Contributing Writer, [GAS]

Today I’m trying out the new Epson WorkForce 600 printer/copier/scanner/fax combo.  To make a long story short: at less than $200 (about $149 at some outlets) it delivers a lot of printer for the money.  But not everything in this review is rosy.  Read on for the full story and pictures.

We’ll start by unboxing everything.

Printer, full set of ink cartridges, Ethernet, USB, and power cables, paper samples, instructions, and CD.  Nice and tidy.

OK, after we clear a space on the desk and plug it in, time to insert ink cartridges.  The top flips up in two places — the very top cover lifts to reveal the scanner glass, and another layer below that lifts to get at the guts of this beast.  Ink cartridges go in a compartment that flips open on the right.

Which cartridge goes in what hole is clearly indicated by the color strip across the back of the compartment.  The cartridges slide in easily and click into place.

Paper feeds vertically from the back, held in place by this guide that slides up from a rear compartment.  You can load up to 100 sheets in this feeder, they say.  I didn’t take the time to count.

When they mention a footprint depth of 13.6 inches, they weren’t counting the output tray.  This extends outward in the front, bringing the total depth required for this printer to about 21 inches.  Likewise, the documented height of 9.3 inches is fine as long as you don’t need to load paper.  But it does stick to its 18.1 inch width.

I really like the arrangement of ports — from top to bottom: phone line, phone handset, Ethernet, and USB 2.0.  Easily accessible, clearly labeled, facing straight back but about two inches in front of the back of the printer, so you don’t get the cables mashed against the wall behind.  Smart design.

Here’s what she looks like all set up with paper loaded.  Pay no attention to that old power-hogging CRT monitor to the right.  That and the printer on the left (an HP OfficeJet 7310) are shown here for scale (and because I couldn’t find anywhere else to put them).

That opening in the lid (in front of the paper) is an automatic document feeder for the scanner/copier.  It flips closed to give the printer a smooth top, if you prefer that look or want to keep the dust bunnies out.  The front control panel can also fold in flush with the side.

Now to hook this baby up and do some printing.  We have three options:  connect directly to a single computer via USB 2.0, networked via Ethernet cable, or wireless.  Let’s go wireless, because I have enough cables tangled up on the desk behind it already.

We can install the Epson software on Windows Vista, XP, or Mac OS X.  Sadly, no option for Linux or FreeBSD.  I did the first install on Vista Ultimate x64.

The main point in all this verbiage is to have you click “Install”.

On the next panel, select “Install driver for a network connection”.  Click Next, and go get a cup of coffee.  Heck, make a new pot.  This phase installs a lot of different pieces, each with their own little pop up or progress bar.  You don’t really get a choice about installing these, either, unless perhaps you Cancel the few interactive dialogs along the way.  But who knows what havoc that might cause?

Lucky I have Internet Explorer set to prompt for cookies, or I never would have known about this one.  I really hate that they have the nerve to spin up IE on my precious system without even asking.  Block Cookie — so there!

Somewhere along this long software installation process, one of the installation programs actually reset my Display characteristics.  I have two monitors, and they switched which one was primary, as well as which one was on which side!  For a few seconds, I couldn’t figure out how to use the mouse.

People, lesson number one for installations:  don’t be obnoxious.

Finally, we get to the next dialog in the primary installation process:

Clicking “Next” launches yet another separate installation process, with a whole new look:

This seemed like a lot of space to dedicate to a warning about your firewall software, especially when later on in the process you’ll be greeted by a pop-up message box that tells you the same thing.

The remaining 7 “steps” each involve several dialogs.  You’ll get tired of clicking “Next”.

What you need to know:  your SSID (wireless network name) and your security passphrase/key for either WEP or WPA.  If your access point broadcasts its SSID, the printer should pick it up.

In order to program the printer for wireless, you have to temporarily hook it up to your network with the supplied Ethernet cable.  The installation dialogs prompt you (twice) when you need to do this (once).  The printer will acquire an IP using DHCP if that’s available on your network.  If not, you’ll need to set that up through the Setup/Networking options on the printer’s control panel.

At one point, you’re asked about allowing network access to memory cards in the printer.  I elected to disable access, but this could be a useful feature for grabbing photos right off your camera’s memory stick/chip, instead of having to plug your camera into a USB port on your computer.  Slots for several types of memory cards are available on the front left of the printer.

A couple of dialogs later, you get the opportunity to assign a local printer name, and whether you want it to be the default — followed by one to print a test page.  I selected “Yes”, clicked “Next”, and the test page was printed.  Just that fast.  I did a double-take.  I thought it had spit out a  blank page or something — but there it was, in living color.  This is one fast printer.

Then out of nowhere, this pops up:

If you decide to decline, make sure you check the box, or it will ask you again (frequently).

Next, you’re asked to remove the ethernet cable (for wireless setup) and click Finish.  Are we finally done?  Let’s click Finish!

No, we’re not done yet — we forgot completely about the special offers!   Hey, this one looked pretty good, until I read the third paragraph:

… it requires Internet Explorer?!  Not even version 7.  Forget that!

Uh, no, I don’t want yet another icon on my desktop — thanks for asking.

We’re still not done — we need to register our product!

We can be in the USA or Canada.  Kiltak will be glad to know that all the docs come in French as well as English, and you can overlay the buttons on the front panel with French text as well.  No Spanish option, so I guess they don’t sell to California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, or Florida.

The “Help me find my Serial Number” link was actually pretty helpful:

That’s easy in any language.  Damned Internet Explorer again, though.

They still want to send me more information.  But thankfully, this is THE END of the installation process.

Now lets go see what this printer has to say for itself.  Here’s the printer’s preferences dialog:

Note the different quality options.  Printing straight text is really fast, even in color (up to 38 ppm, they claim).  And the quality at that setting is quite good.  It compares favorably with my HP inkjet printer.  Best of all, you can do anything with it right away — the ink won’t smudge.  You can run a highlighter over it, and the text stays intact.  In fact, you can even run water over it.  I drenched a fully printed sheet, and not one letter was seriously mangled — just a little fuzz on a few characters.

The “Photo” option prints tolerably quickly, and the quality isn’t bad.  “Best photo” takes a bit more time (more like an HP 5610 prints in draft mode) but the quality is well worth it, especially if you use a photo quality paper.  Max resolution is a generous 5760 x 1440 dpi.

Notice the “Fix Photo” and “Fix Red-Eye” checkboxes.  They really work!  I checked both and printed a photo that had bad color and serious, call-in-the-priest-for-an-exorcism red-eye, and both conditions were cured.

You’ll probably want to have “Reverse order” checked permanently.  Because the finals are output face up, your document gets reversed by default.  Printing in reverse order fixes that.

How do you like those little ink level indicators?

Lots of good diagnostic tools here on the “Maintenance” tab.  Unfortunately, clicking “Driver Update” eventually timed out and gave me an “Update service not available” message.

The “Page Layout” tab allows you to select (among other things) two-sided printing.  Cool, I thought, until after it printed the first side:

Two-sided printing means that you have to turn the paper over yourself.  Not impressive.  Quite a few other two-sided printers know how to feed the paper back through all on their own.

Epson provides a nice little utility for scanning images, imaginatively named “EPSON Scan”.  It works quite well for scanning in up to legal size images (via the automatic feeder) or A4 (on the glass).  The scanner is also available to Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Office Document Scanning.  It worked right out of the box much better than the HP All-in-Ones.  The scanned images are very crisp, with an optical resolution of up to 2400 dpi.

The copying function is serviceable, but nothing to write home about.  The document feeder in the hood makes it easier to copy a stack of documents, but the copies come out in reverse order because they’re laid face up.  Again, the scanner glass will hold up to a size A4 document.  You can also feed legal sized documents through the automatic document feeder.  The input bin can take legal sized paper as well, or you have the option in the Copy settings to shrink legal to letter size.

I didn’t bother trying out the fax options.  Who faxes any more?

I did install the software on another system running XP.  That process was just a subset of the full installation described above.  It worked first time.

I’m tempted to replace my HP OfficeJet 7310 with this fast little fellow.  While the HP has a legal-size scanner glass, holds up to 250 sheets of paper, and does automatic 2-sided printing and copying, the Epson WorkForce 600 is smaller, faster, has a marginally better print quality, and the ink won’t smudge. And for the features, at $149 (At Amazon.com), it’s really a steal.

If you’ve tried out this printer, what do you think of it?  Did I miss any important features or failures?  How does this printer compare with others you’ve seen?

For those of you getting here searching for cheap ink cartridges for the WorkForce 600, amazon.com has pretty much the cheapest ones around. You’ll find the extra-high capacity black Ink cartridge right here ($22) and a cartridge set that includes all colors (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow) right here ($35).

  1. Nice review, this printer has a lot of good features. I recently got the Lexmark X4550 Wireless All-in-One. Wireless printing is the way to go. I love the ability to put my printer anywhere! It looks very similar to this printer.

    • Well, the price is nice on the Lexmark, but the resolution and print speed seem to be a little lower. It also doesn't handle legal-sized originals, apparently.

  3. What a machine! Two more points to consider. It only uses 4 colors of ink so some dollars are saved. After practicing with different papers, I've learned to make sure all the choices are selected when printing photos. Pick "best photo" and the exact paper type and the results are fabulous. Very happy with this printer.

    • I can't seem to find a price online for the color cartridges, but with the black at about $32 retail, it would seem to add up to quite a lot to replace them all. Most of the HP printers have a single multi-color cartridge. Can you tell us where to find the color cartridges, and how much they cost?

  5. Nice review. I just bought this printer yesterday, as a replacement for my HP 7210. Unfortunately the 7210 scanner was defective & forced me to look for something new. I love the speed, smudge free prints, wireless printing, overall appearance, crisp LCD display, and smaller footprint on my desk.

    Some things I don't like: You must use the installation CD to install the drivers on other PC's in your household/workplace. The install for secondary PC's are not available for download. This means you can't lose the disk & complicates the process slightly since other users on your network will need the installation disk, vs a simple driver download.

    I also don't like that you have to install several other unnecessary software programs (i.e., Arcsoft), but there are 2 ways around that: 1.) you can download & install the drivers from Epson, which does not include the extra bloatware, or 2.) you can choose to not accept the license agreement for Arcsoft when it prompts you too. This will cause it to skip the install.

    • Good points, Cory. I agree it would be nice if Epson supported diskless installations to secondary workstations. And I really dislike having additional software installed without even asking.

  7. Sounds like a nice printer. I have learned that Amazon.com carries the ink cartridges for this at very good prices. My one question about it is if I use my wireless Windows XP laptop to set it up, will I be able to print from it using my Windows 2000 tower, which is on my network? If I'm understanding things, the software requires XP or Vista, and you have to load the software in every computer you want to use it with. Am I finally obsolete?

    • I'm guessing that the XP driver would not work on W2K, and I'm certain it wouldn't be supported. But what you might be able to do is share the printer from an XP or Vista workstation and then access the shared printer from your W2K server. I don't think the server would need to install the printer drivers in order to access the shared printer, though I could be wrong about that. Of course, you wouldn't get access to all features, like scanning.

  9. I bought the Artisan 700 and I am quite sorry I did. Sweet printer but was unable to get my wireless laptop hooked up. Used technical support and after 2 hrs each night for 4 nights (long distance charges) they transferred me again and again and hung up on me 3 times. No resolution and they told me to call back next week! what is the use of a wireless printer if you have to hardwire your wireless laptop?

    • After spending about 8 hours trying to make this thing work with my laptop I gave up and took it back to Best Buy. No problems with the return but was told that since I use an aircard to connect to the internet I needed a 250.00 router for it to communicate with my laptop. The instructions said it would work without a router and I don’t know who is right. For now I’ll get one that is not wireless and plug the laptop in when I want to print.

      • Hi Not Too Techno :)

        I have no idea why they said this to you, but in any case, this printer can be hooked up directly to your laptop via USB… like any other printers.

        • Yes, it will certainly work without a router if you use the USB cable and setup for direct connection. To run it in wireless mode, you need some type of wireless access point, I believe.

  11. Lots of good feedback here!

    Does the workforce 600 allow users to wirelessly scan? If so, does it let you scan to multiple wireless laptops? Is there an interface on the device to choose the wireless scan destination?

    • Yes, it will scan over wireless, but you have to go through an access point/router (it doesn’t provide one of its own, it merely acts as a wireless client). Once connected to the network, you can scan to any system on that network that has the software installed — whether the workstation is wireless or not makes no difference. You can scan using the software they provide (Epson scan) or any other software that recognizes the device (I scanned into Acrobat and Microsoft Office).

  13. Does anyone know if this printer will accept the generic ink cartridge refills? I am hearing that the new Epson printers will not take anything but an Epson printer cartridge. Is this true?

  15. I just purchased this printer, the cartriges range in price from 11.50 to 15.00. not bad, I retired my HP printer. I’m used to paying over 30 every time I needed ink.

  17. I purchased and installed one of these over the Thanksgiving Holiday; Office Max had them on sale for $149 ( was there again last night, and the sale is over (: ).

    I’d agree that all the exta bloatware is something we could all do without, but in all honesty, everything these days comes with bloatware.

    Setup on 4 systems at home went smoothly, and seems to be just what I was looking for ( the one thing worse than bloatware, is bloatware that hangs an install… at least it all installed ).

    Is a bit noisy on print startup, but not too bad, and there’s an option to ‘print quieter’, which of course slows the print speed somewhat, not tried this yet. Has a double-sided print function, but requires you to manually reload each page ( it pauses and waits for you to do that ).

    I even called support, and unlike a lot of manfacturers, someone actually answered the phone, ready to help me. Always a plus.

    One feature I was trying to get to function was the ‘fax to email’. Apparently this only will work if the printer is connected via USB ( i.e. not networked ). I asked if it could connect to both network and USB at the same time, and he said that it could. I’ll be trying that sometime this week.

    Does anyone have any experience with this? It’s unclear to me why this would only work via USB, seems that they could add an option to the ‘scan icon’ where you select location to save file, etc, as “fax to email”. I’ll be a little suprised if the printer works connected to both USB and network. They said I didn’t need to redo any of the setup… we’ll see.

  19. Posting yesturday gave me enough incentive to try this last night when I got home from work.

    Connected USB cable, leaving network connected, very quickly saw “new devices found, printer, scanner, disk”,
    then said a reboot was required to complete the setup. That’s where it went downhill very fast. Hung on reboot, powered off, retried twice, hung before even seeing the windows screen. unplugged network cable, retried, booted up ok.

    No further setup was required to print, connecting a phone line, it immediately wanted the setup disk.

    Selected “Scan to Email”, now at the point where it would not go past the “press OK” button to proceed when networked, it does actually go to another screen. However, it only says “Scan document and then attach to an email” on the printer screen. According to the supplied PDF help files, now a popup window should come up, scan the document and from this popup you can select what you want to do with it. Apparently this is a feature they were working on, that managed to get into the help documents, but was not released with the product.
    As it currently is, I fail to see the difference between. “Scan to File” and “Scan to Email” functions.

    Summary:
    1. you can’t connect ‘at same time’ USB and network.
    2. Some additional setup is required when switching between network and USB “for Fax”.
    3. “Scan to Email” was not “fully” released.
    4. PS: Tested the “Quite Print” function, this does reduce the printer startup noise quite a bit.

  21. I purchased this printer the other night. I began to set up the unit, once I found room to physically connect it to my router setup was easy and painless. I went though the on screen menu unpluged the cable and voila, I had a wireless printer and it was painless. Prints are good and you have a HAPPY CAMPER here. Does what it says and yes I would purchase again!

      • Thanks Chip i did that scan to file then put it into email that works but all my other file's go with it and who i email to can get into my files that way .

        what is TWAIN ? thanks Paul

        • Sounds like you need to study up on how to attach files in your email client. What client do you use?

          TWAIN is an interface that allows applications to read images directly from your device. I don't know of any email clients that support it, though. Adobe Acrobat is a good example of an application that uses TWAIN — you can use it to "Create PDF/From Scanner".

  30. I have this kind of printer and less than a month the cartridge is already empty. Based on what I've seen it can only print 200 to 250 pages per cartridge. All prints are plain text.

  31. Trying to help my cousin who replaces ink cartridges with refurbished ones. Currently – in need of Magenta, the printing cartridge won't return to allow for removal of and replacing magenta cartridge. Essentially, the print cartridge main is stuck to the right of the printing bar thing… need it to move so it can be opened and other color replaced. Anyone? And thank you!!

  32. I have the 600 workforce, love the machine, great prints. Less than a year and the scanner jamed, jumped time and sounded like stripping gears.
    Epson replaced the unit, now at less than a year on this unit the same thing has happened and will not complete a scan only part then everything is a blured mass of nothing distinguishable. Getting frustrated!
