We try: Epson Workforce printer:

If you need a household printer, the Epson Workforce 7520 printer is durable, functional, reliable and well-priced.

I haven't had a new printer for more than five years and decided to splash out and get one. Perhaps stupidly, it was one of those spur-of-the-moment decisions and I just walked into a shop, had a look around and bought on where the functions were all I wanted - an all-in-one printer and scanner mostly - and the price was right. My budget was no more than $250.

After a quick look at what was available and a brief discussion with the sales person, I bought an Epson Workforce 7520 multifunction printer. Besides printing and scanning that I was after, it also offers a fax and copying function.

I am delighted with my purchase. I've had it now for a little over six weeks and it works like a charm.

Having put up with an older inkjet printer for the past five years, I was surprised at how fast this new one is and how good the quality is. To my eye, the quality is similar to small laser printers and it's certainly as fast. It's incredible how much the technology has improved in that time, as well as got relatively cheaper.

It is also compatible with Apple Air Print and Google Cloud which means you can print from anywhere in the house once it's connected to the wireless network in your house or business. (I think the Epson Workforce is suitable for a small business also).

If your household has several school or post-school age students who all need access to a printer at different times, this would be ideal. It seems highly durable, it's certainly reliable, has a range of functions - some of which I haven't used yet but intend doing so - and the ink cartridges are not too expensive.

The sales person told me I got it on a super special at $245 and that the cost is generally just under $300. If I had known how good this was before going in the shop, I would have been tempted to stretch my budget to the higher amount anyway but if you can pick it up on as special as I did, you won't be sorry.

Five stars.
