All the Features You’re Probably Looking For
The ET-4850, like other AIOs, prints, scans, and functions as a standalone copier and fax machine. By printing to the ET-4850 fax driver, you may also send faxes from your desktop using Epson’s fax application or practically any Windows software. You may scan to online services such as Evernote, save the scan as a file, including to a cloud destination, or attach it to an email using the Epson ScanSmart app.
Thanks to a 250-sheet drawer and capability for automated double-sided printing, paper handling for printing is ideally suited for individual to micro-office use (duplexing). Epson recommends a monthly switching frequency of up to 800 pages per month, or 40 pages every day, as a reasonable level for the capacity. However, there is no single-sheet bypass tray. If you need to print on letterhead or other special-purpose paper on occasion, you must first load it into the paper drawer. The Brother MFC-J4335DW, on the other hand, has a reduced capacity but adds the convenience of a bypass tray.
For the price, paper handling for scanning, copying, and faxing is a touch underwhelming. The letter-size flatbed is supplemented by a 30-page ADF that can accommodate legal-size paper. The ADF, on the other hand, does not scan both sides of the page, and there is no support for manual duplexing, which would allow you to flip the stack over, scan the second side, and then automatically interfile the pages in the correct order. Although this may not be an issue for everyone, if you need to scan or copy two-sided documents, the printer (along with many of its competition in this price range) may be out of the question.
Small Enough to Share Your Workspace
The ET-4850 is available in black or white and is small enough to sit on your desk comfortably, allowing you to quickly access the paper tray or input scan, copy, and fax instructions using its 2.4-inch front-panel colour touch screen. With the ADF and output trays fully extended, it weighs just 14.8 pounds and measures 10.0 by 16.4 by 19.8 inches (HWD).
USB, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and Wi-Fi Direct are available as connection options. I used Ethernet for my performance tests. Epson’s Smart Panel software for Android and iOS mobile printing allows you to print from or scan to your mobile devices, as well as set up to monitor the printer. Furthermore, the ET-4850, like other modern Epson printers, features Epson Email Print and Epson Remote Print, which allow you to transmit files to the printer through the internet.
Thanks to a well-designed installation tool, installation is a breeze. Epson offers a CD that searches the internet for the most recent software; you can also download applications and drivers from Epson’s website.
One minor drawback is that the installation needs you to do a manual aligning process that requires you to notice minor variations in a series of print samples. This might be done automatically by placing the sample on the scan bed and letting the AIO choose the best one.
Enough speed, excellent quality
The ET-4850’s performance ratings aren’t very spectacular given the price, at 15.5ppm for monochrome black pages and 8.5ppm for colour, but it outperformed comparable priced inkjet tank printers and several less-expensive cartridge printers.
In my tests on our regular testbed, the ET-4850 printed monochrome text at 13.8ppm (52 seconds) utilising our 12-page Word file and included the first page. It scored 7.5ppm on our business apps suite, which includes colour output (3 minutes 20 seconds). Using Epson’s Premium Photo Paper Glossy, it took 1 minute and 25 seconds to print a 4-by-6-inch photo.
This virtually ties the ET-4850 with the less costly cartridge-based Brother MFC-J4335DW, which produced black text at 14.7ppm (49 seconds). However, both are substantially slower than the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-7840 and WF-7820, two cartridge-based machines that can print up to supertabloid format and are more expensive than the Brother printer but less expensive than the ET-4850. At around 20ppm, the two WorkForce models were basically tied (24 seconds).
The ET-4850 was faster than any of the cartridge-based AIOs in our business applications package, which included colour pages. We measured the WF-7820 and WF-7840 at 12 ppm (2 minutes and 5 seconds) and the MFC-J4335DW at 10.5 ppm (2 minutes 23 seconds).
Astonishingly Low Page Cost
Because of the refillable tanks, the ET-4850’s ink cost per page is only 0.3 cent for a basic black page and 0.9 cent for colour. That’s a savings of 0.6 penny per black page and 3.6 cents per colour page, or $6 per 1000 text pages and $36 per 1000 colour pages over the Brother MFC-J4335DW. Always remember that the overall cost of ownership, which includes the original cost plus the recurring cost for the amount of pages you intend to print, is what matters. You’ll need to perform the arithmetic to determine which printer will be less expensive in the long run.
If you don’t intend to print many pages, try the Editors’ Choice-winning MFC-J4335DW for its inexpensive initial cost. If you want a speedier printer with more flexibility, choose the Epson WF-7820, which has 2 piece trays, or the WF-7840, which has 3. Both can handle up to supertabloid-size paper, and the additional trays let you load different types of paper at the same time.
