Few months back Epson launched the L655, one of the company’s top-of-the-line ink tank system printers. While this is the new flagship printer from the company, it promises users many possibilities as well as affordable and quality prints.
For these L-series printers, the company often cites ultra-low-cost printing, high-volume ink bottles, reliable operation, and Epson-quality results as the key benefits. That being said, today’s L655 is no different. Epson has brought this new printer L655 with many features and it is a printer that is most suitable for small and home offices.
Epson L655 is bundled with features that you will otherwise find in premium printers. The L655 has wireless capabilities to easily print documents and photos without having to sit on your connected PC. The Wi-Fi Direct is an added bonus, which connects up to four devices without requiring a router. We had a few issues initially trying to connect to the Wi-Fi at our place but in the end it worked just fine.
Epson L655 has automatic duplex printing, which reduces paper wastages. This feature is quite useful in corporate spaces as wastage of papers is often overlooked.
The L655 comes with Broadcast Fax and PC-fax features, which we did not have the chance to test. But it is a good addition, despite the relatively-low usage of faxes these days. The printer can also be used to scan documents and make photocopies. The L655 is truly an all-in-one machine.
A few hitches here and there, where our device did not print all the colours due to a blockage in the inkjet, which I found disappointing. The service engineer did mention that it must have been due to the inks drying up, but it took him a good one hour too to fix it.
On the box the company does mention that it is a printer to print high quality images and prints which is definitely true. At this range you get a good deal for your money. The mobile interface too that allows you to print remotely is extremely responsive and most of the times, I did not even switch on my PC to print. Everything was through the mobile app.
The inks, last for long and refilling them does not burn a hole into your pocket. If you are a small organisation that sees an average of 20-30 prints a day, this is definitely for you. For your home needs, I would suggest the L455 which is much more compact and easy to use.
