[Staples] Staples - Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4630 $99.97 , another $50 off for trading in an old printer YMMV

I saw this at Staples, Park Royal, West Vancouver.

I cannot find this model in the website. Thus guessing this is YMMV.
Here's the link from Epson - link
** I suggest to read the reviews. Fairly mixed.


Also, there is a card which states trade-in old printer for $50 off, offer good until Oct 31, 2017.
** daviiiiiid - said this $50 off offer is probably for ecotank not this printer.

Written based on memory.

from epson website:

I'm on printer #3 for this model. I would not buy again as the heads clog and the printer stops working after a few months. I didn't get past my first (trial) ink cartridges on my second replacement before the print head clogged. This isn't for lack of use as I have a home office and print at least 3x a week. Luckily I bought the staples warranty or I would have given up long ago

Thanks for the feedback.
I always thought Epson WorkForce printers are great.

This goes for all inkjunks. I have an Epson WF I bought for like $60 just for the scanner/AIO capability (my laser doesn't have that) and sure enough the ink ran out in two days and the aftermarket carts I bought for it print but just totally skip lines of printing :rolleyes: Pretty sure that's a "feature" of the fw to prevent use of non-OEM carts. Still it's no different than any other inkjunk and a good thing I don't print with it normally because...it can't even print lol. It works well enough with this little utility though that I can use it as a copier in conjunction with a real printer (and also scan with it).

Seriously never buy an inkjunk to print, they can't and they are all some variant of the same basic POS--cloggy, ink drinking, garbage.

Wow the description paragraph mentions "Laser" 5 times and "ink" just twice. I think they are trying to make you feel you are getting a laser printer.
Any inkjet is worthless for me where I print a few times a year. So show me an Inkjet where I can install a cartridge, print 10 pages every 6 months for 6 years.

Yes, if you don't print often, you gonna get POS--clogged easily. But the photo quality is the inkjet printer better than the laser one.

My 2 cents

My wife has been using the Epson WF printers for at least 3 years now (probably 3 different printers), and they're good printers, but the print heads do clog up every couple of months and I end up having to externally clean them with less than stellar results. The "clean print head" function goes through a lot of ink and never works.
In contrast, I have a 4 year old brother AIO inkjet that I print with once every 3-4 months and have never had a problem.

Horrible, horrible printer. I've have it for probably 8 months and, as other people is saying, the heads get clogged after some months and there's nothing you can do to make it work well anymore. I'm currently looking to buy a laser (Monochromatic).

Scanner is good, though.

Yeah for two days until it breaks, then there is no quality because inkjunk don't print anymore.

20 years ago inkjets worked fine. I had an original Epson Stylus Color (the first one, with 720dpi printing on coated paper) the thing cost close to $1k but it never stopped working, even with light print duty. Would change the carts like once a year, had to clean the nozzles a few times, but it always printed. Basically stopped using it because it was pretty slow, very noisy, and only had an LPT port.

I also later had an HP 930c or whatever in the early 00s--again never any problems with it over time and that was a refurb to begin with. It was fast, quiet, reliable, and had USB. I only stopped using that one because I got a monochrome laser in uni due to needing a pretty high volume of document printing that an inkjet just wasn't good for.

By about the mid-00s and onward though, inkjets because super cheap garbage we now know as inkjunks. Garbage from day one, they clog if you sneeze at them, run out of ink after a few printouts (literally), and stop working in short order. Total trash and they only reason I have one myself is, as said, 'cause it was cheap enough for the scan/fax abilities on the rare occasion I need them. Otherwise? Garbage. Doesn't matter if you print everyday on it or not because first off if you print everyday, you'll be into thousands of dollars in ink in no time; secondly it's gonna break after a week anyway.

Have had this exact model for almost a year. Print rarely enough that I’m still using the trial ink....not a single issue and has so many features I love. Purchased for $199 from Canada computers a year ago.

Highly not recommended. Clogged up within a year. Not worth the hassle of dealing with warranty knowing that you'll be at the same issue within a couple of months.

Card being a signage on the shelf by the printer
Is the $50 off good for any printer, or just Epson branded? And was there a minimum purchase amount?

From my recollection, just on that printer. I did not see the signage on other printers.
