The awkward middle child of low-end business printers
Part of Epson’s 2020 refresh of its WorkForce Pro line of multifunction (print, copy, scan, and fax) printers, the WorkForce Pro WF-4820 All-in-One Printer ($179.99), is an entry-level to midrange machine designed for use in small offices and home offices. A replacement of 2017’s WF-4720 (an Editors’ Choice recipient), the WF-4820 comes with some notable updates, including a larger touch control panel, faster print speeds, and a higher monthly volume rating. However, it faces a crowded field of capable competitors—including its nearest sibling, the WF-4830, which boasts double the paper capacity from two input sources and a bigger, auto-duplexing automatic document feeder (ADF). These valuable time-saving features come at an unbelievable $20 over the WF-4820’s list price. There’s nothing wrong with the WF-4820, but anything it can do, the WF-4830 can do better.
