Because you don’t always need it…

We’ve mentioned comparing apples with apples before. That concept is relevant in many cases, including this particular one. See, to most people, a printer is a printer is a printer. There are even many journalists out there who avoid doing printer reviews, because they cannot see the difference between one and the other – beyond, perhaps, the most obvious aspects.

But printing isn’t just about sticking paper in one end and getting printed page on the other. There are many factors that come into play when it comes to making a decision for a printing solution.

Sure they all pretty much do the same thing in the end, but there is the whole matter of economy that does enter into the picture-particularly if you do a lot of printing.

So picking the right device can actually save you a lot of money.

If you, for example, need a workplace capable printer to handle fair volume, but only need black and white prints prepared, then this particular model – Epson’s WorkForce M105 is a sensible solution. Getting color ink cartridges is not sensible if you don’t need them, even if you only get them once. In fact, it’s starting to look like cartridges, overall, aren’t the best idea. That’s what Epson implies with this particular model. It doesn’t use cartridges. Rather, it has an ink reservoir that is refilled from bottled ink.

A single bottle of ink will yield around 6000 pages of printed material, and the integrated ink tank holds a good amount of ink, so refilling won’t be an everyday thing. Refilling is pretty simple, too, although mishaps can result in messy consequences.

The M105 might come armed with Wi-Fi and cost-cutting ideas, but it is exactly what it claims to be: a printer. There are no bells and whistles here. That also means, on the upside, that it is a bit smaller than the average ‘everything and the kitchen sink’ printer.

So, when you get right down to it, if you need to print in black and white, and want to save some space and money, here’s your solution. It has no frills, really, and its operation is extremely simple. That isn’t a bad thing in an office environment, particularly not if the device is going to be shared by a number of people. With a print speed of up to 34 pages per minute, it works well in that kind of environment, because it is pretty quick. It’s also relatively quiet, which helps.

So, comparing apples with apples… for what it offers, the M105 does a great job. But it may not offer everything you need. It does make for a bit of cash saved, if it fits your environment.
