The Epson Workforce Pro WP-4010 is a regular inkjet printer with Ethernet networking. It works with both Windows and Mac OS. Individual cartridges for each color let you change only the ones that are empty. The capacity of the main paper tray is 250 sheets, a generous size. There's a second tray for full-size paper, allowing you to load letterhead paper, for instance. The printer has no photo preview display. Unlike most color printers, the Epson Workforce Pro WP-4010 lacks a memory-card reader.

Features & Specs - Epson Workforce Pro WP-4010
Memory-card reader Indicates whether the printer has a built-in memory-card reader. If so, this feature lets you print image files from a digital camera's memory card without using a computer. You can also transfer the files to a computer.
PictBridge This feature allows direct printing (without the use of a computer) from any brand of digital camera to any brand of printer.
LCD viewer Printer has a built-in LCD screen for viewing and editing images from a memory card. The screen is small, usually only 1 to 3.5 inches, and editing capability is very limited.
Individual color tanks Some inkjet printers use a separate tank for each color. Others have tri-color cartridges with three colors in one. Individual tanks let you replace only the color that runs out rather than tossing a tri-color cartridge that may have some ink left.
Individual color tanks
Auto-duplexing Can print automatically on both sides of the paper.
Networking The ability to connect to a home network for printing from a computer either via an Ethernet or a WiFi connection. Ethernet is the common wired network and WiFi is the wireless format commonly found in laptop computers.
I needed to replace a very old, but reliable Epson c88 printer that finally died. We print a lot of photographic documents on 8.5 x 11 inch paper. Some of our documents are on plain paper and some on premium glossy photo paper (whichever brand is a good value at the time). This printer was very easy to set up with an excellent set of printed instructions. The plain paper prints from the large bottom loading tray and the photo paper prints nicely from the rear loading tray. My staff loves how quickly it prints everything. The only downside is its large size.
