CONCLUSION
I was impressed to find that Epson has corrected the biggest flaws we found with the previous generation WorkForce 610; the paper capacity has been upgraded from 100 sheets to 250 sheets and the wireless setup was much easier to use this time around. I would still like to be able to use the front USB port to print PDF and documents and the draft mode wasn’t much improved from the last generation, but those are minor complaints in the grand scheme of the WorkForce 635.

What is important is that Epson added necessary features to make the WorkForce 635 more well rounded than any of the previous generations while retaining all the features that made the WorkForce brand popular: ease of use, good print quality and relevant business oriented devices.

I would recommend the Epson WorkForce 635 to a small business or workgroup that wants a compact, well-designed multifunctional device at a low initial cost.

PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
The Epson WorkForce 635 is available now through the Epson website for the sale price of $179.99. The suggested retail value is $229.99.

Supplies and accessories can be purchased through the Epson website as well. A complete set of the Extra High Capacity 127 cartridges will set users back $82.59 while a set of High Capacity 126 cartridges are $63.59 (both figures are with purchase of Multi-Pack).

Epson includes a 1-year limited warranty with the Epson WorkForce 635 but also offers extended service plans. A 1-Year Extended Service Plan is $19.95 and a 2-Year Extended Service Plan is $29.95.
