THE BOTTOM LINE

The WorkForce Pro WF-7820 prints 13-by-19-inch (supertabloid) pages and copies, scans, and faxes 11-by-17-inch (tabloid) originals, but much more capable and capacious wide-format printers cost just a little more.

MSRP $249.99

A step down from the WorkForce Pro WF-7840, Epson’s $249.99 WorkForce Pro WF-7820 is a multifunction (print, copy, scan, and fax) wide-format inkjet printer designed for small to midsize offices. It’s capable of printing up to 13-by-19-inch (supertabloid) pages and copying, scanning, and faxing two-sided 11-by-17-inch (tabloid) originals. The WF-7820, which replaces 2018’s WF-7710, lists for $50 less than its WF-7840 sibling; for that measly reduction in up-front cost, you lose out on a second 250-sheet paper cassette and a 50-sheet rear multipurpose tray, which can make a huge difference in workplace efficiency. In addition, the WF-7820 has neither bulk ink nor an ink subscription program, so its per-page costs are high enough that it really doesn’t make sense to use it for printing more than about 300 pages a month. That’s too bad, because this is a fine wide-format machine capable of relatively high-volume output, but the numbers just don’t add up.
