New printers hit the market all the time but, it's fair to say, some devices generate more interest and excitement than others. The Epson WorkForce Pro range has proved extremely popular since it was launched, so the announcement of two new models was definitely a welcome one in the Printware office.
At the cheaper end of the range, the WP-4095DN is a single-function printer with virtually identical specifications to the WorkForce Pro WP-4015DN, whilst the new WP-4595DNF is the twin of the all-in-one WP-4525DNF. In most respects, the new devices are indistinguishable from their counterparts, except that the new models feature PostScript 3 emulation and a much larger memory.
Why is this important? Well, if you're printing graphics and images, particularly on a Mac, PostScript 3 will give you better results than other printer languages. For many users, the differences won't be that noticeable but, if you need professional quality results and need the output to match exactly what you see on the screen, then you will appreciate the benefits of using PostScript 3. The increased memory size means that the new devices will be better able to handle the larger, more complex file formats used to create images as opposed to text.
The WP-4095DN and WP-4595DNF are due in April but, if you can’t wait that long, you can view our current range of WorkForce multifunction printers here and single function devices here.
