- Anyone looking for a new wireless printer should look no further than the Epson Workforce Pro WF-4740 Wireless All-in-One Printer.
- This model has so many great features, from 2-sided printing and a large capacity to a nice big touchscreen for controls.
- On top of all that, it features support for Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant and automatic ink reordering.
When Epson reached out and asked if we wanted to try out one of its new wireless printers with Alexa support, two things immediately crossed our minds. First, we were certain that it would be an outstanding wireless printer because every Epson printer we’ve ever tried has been great. And second, we thought that adding Alexa support to a printer was nothing more than a gimmick.
As it turns out, we were only correct about one of those things.
The Epson Workforce Pro WF-4740 is a best-in-class model that’s fast and sharp. It has a nice big 500-page capacity and can print full-color on both sides of each page. It can also scan, copy, fax, and it has an auto-feed tray that holds 50 sheets at a time. As for speed, this excellent model can spit out up to 25 black pages or 12 full-color pages per minute.
That’s all great, but the coolest thing about this new model is probably the one thing we thought was going to be a total gimmick. Believe it or not, being able to call out commands like “Alexa, print my to-do list” from anywhere in your house is pretty awesome. On top of that, Alexa allows the printer to detect when it’s running low on ink and automatically reorder ink cartridges at a 10% discount.
