We know that not everyone is looking for a do-it-all printer.  Some homes simply need a compact, reliable printer for everyday jobs.  We’re giving the WorkForce 40 an aesthetic once over today and will have a full performance review up next week.

WorkForce 40 Specifications

  • Print speeds: up to 38 ppm (in draft mode)
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet capability
  • Energy efficient (compared to a laser printer)
  • Individual ink cartridges for easy replacement
  • DuraBrite Ultra inks – high capacity black

The Basics

One of the features Epson hypes for a printer like the WorkForce 40 is its size: its dimensions are 17.1″ x 9.8″ x 6.3″ and it weighs under nine lbs.  When the WorkForce 40 is printing it takes up extra space and the dimensions are 17.1″ x 21.9″ x 12.5″.

The outside of the printer is done in all black with a silver stripe and the Epson logo on the front door.

The top of the printer flips open to the inside of the machine for loading ink cartridges.  This door is a little flimsy; I had it pop out when I was removing the packaging tape.

The rear tray is also located on the top of the printer – this is where you insert the paper. 

There is a small control panel to the left consisting of five status lights/buttons: two network and three printing status lights/buttons.

The output tray can be found on the front of the WorkForce 40.  It extends out about 12” from the printer base.

You’ll find the USB and Ethernet ports on the back of the printer; this is where the power cable is connected as well.

The Epson WorkForce 40 is available on Epson’s website for $109.99 and weighs less than nine lbs. so it won’t break the bank or your back.  Read our full review to find out if its worth the money saved.
