Since last year, work from home has become the new normal to most of us. I know that most of you miss the office environment where you can discuss endlessly, have lunch together, meeting on board rooms and even hold presentation personally. But as we deal with this new ways of working, it is unimaginable how we transformed our home into mini office. And what better way to treat WFH into a full experience is to have a handy, trusted and innovative printer beside you where you can connect, print and copy documents without the need to worry about quality. Today, I’m talking about my new work from Home buddy, the Epson L5190.
To be perfectly honest, I never had my own printer at home, ever! I always relied on my corporate life in terms of my hard copy needs. Let’s admit it, most of our printing needs we rely on our office printers (Guilty here!). But I realized that it is actually affordable and convenient to have your own printer at home. Case in point how Epson provided a lot of options for us to own one!
For starters, let me share you my top three (3) considerations in getting one at home. Well of course, other than quality prints those are, easy wifi connectivity, spill-free refilling and compact tank design. And one of my shortlisted units is the Epson L5190.
Early this year, I needed a printer because I was managing files at home such as important documents that need a digital copies, including printing IDs for submission at LGU in terms of getting financial assistance for Mom. And having Epson L5190 is really a perfect timing because you can actually print, scan, copy and fax with ADF.
I was able to check and somehow compare other brands in terms of the cost saving efficiency when you think about printer ink and with Epson L5190, we can actually save on printing.
That it because other than having a designed for spill- and error-free refilling, I think it doesn’t consume much because its nozzles are always clean (and can always be cleaned thru maintenance) to make sure that your inks produce a considerable amount of prints thru its integrated ink tanks.
Did you know that each set of bottle inks has an ultra-high yield of 7,500 for color and 4,500 pages for black. That’s a lot!
Design-wise, Epson L5190 is classy and very modern you will be so meticulous to make sure it is always clean because of its reflective glossy finish.
Wi-Fi Connect. Of course in this day and age everything must have been automatic at the comforts of your home. Thankfully, Epson L5190 is conveniently exclusive with access to easy and flexible shared printing and mobile printing. This added advantage of Wi-Fi Direct allows you to connect up to 8 devices to the printer without a router.
I don’t even have to install a driver on my mac book for the device to get detected. As long as it uses the same wifi, you can print anywhere you are at home.
Other mobile solutions includes
– Google Cloud Print
– Apple AirPrint
– Mopria Print Service
Copying and printing is easy with this printer, I actually ran out of quotable quotes for my wall project next month because printing with Epson L5190 is so smooth.
I was able to print my test shots from the smartphones that I reviewed in the past months, including some of my favorite plants on white background to accent my walls. I am very happy with the print quality.
Tip: If you are planning to buy photo paper, choose the not so thick brands and If you edit your photos from apps such as VSCO or snap seed, chances are it will be too saturated when it gets to the Epson so I suggest chose the file that doesn’t have too much edit from color photo apps enhancement.
Glad to also know that in terms of warranty, they have this coverage of up to 2 years or 30,000 prints, whichever comes first.
Overall, Epson L5190 Printer is perfect for your work from home set-up and gives you the value for money with its amazing specs. It’s a worry-less printer connected to you wherever or whatever you do at home. And my advise for you guys is to get a brand that is trusted, available everywhere and with good after sales because purchasing a printer isn’t just about buying what’s expensive. It’s a start of a relationship right there.
