I just looked at the Epson Workforce 1100 wide-format printer and was quite impressed. They call it the Workforce, but I think they should have named it “the workhorse” instead. The 1100 is not a do-it-all printer. It doesn’t scan or copy or hook up to the Internet. It is not even wireless. Instead it is just a printer.But it is a stable, sturdy printer that prints very well.
This Workforce printer can print on paper as large as 13″ x 19″…. and it does so with crisp text and good color representation. Although it is not promoted as a photo printer, it prints on photo paper with a quality that will compare very favorably to photo printers. It comes with excellent software to help you print a variety of projects in different sizes.
The under $150 price is attractive as is the printer itself. The only drawback is that, because it is a wide-format printer, it is very large. So you will need a large sturdy desk or stand to put it on. It woul be a good addition to any small office, but would also be very useful for any home user who is interested in printing various projects.
