A light and very original design

Epson WF-110W

Epson WF-110W is fine from every angle

As can be seen in the images that accompany this article, the manufacturer did not want to opt for a conventional style and has managed to create the smallest and lightest A4 inkjet printer that the brand has ever made. The official dimensions remain at 309 x 154 x 61 mm and the weight accompanies it with only 1.6 kilograms.

With a black color marketing, you can not even recognize that you are in front of a printer when its tray is folded, while its uniform structure makes it much more comfortable to be able to take it with you outside the home or between rooms without being a great nuisance . Yes indeed, the presence of a screen that facilitates the visualization of the actions is strange.

Acceptable print quality

Epson Workforce WF-110W uses ink cartridges

No need to expect bad results when it comes to analyzing the performance of Epson WF-110W, as it is in fact the only portable printer that uses pigment inks for all colors for smudge-free and long-lasting results over time.

In technical terms, supported print resolution is 5760 x 1440 dpi, while the print speed (ISO / IEC 24734 standard) is 7 pages / minute in monochrome and 4 pages / minute in color. When using the built-in battery and no power, these results drop to 4 pages / minute in monochrome and 2 pages in color.

Finally, it is indicated that Single available paper tray allows for standard 20-sheet or 5-sheet photo input, while the supported paper format covers A4, A5, A6, B5, C6 (envelope), DL (envelope), No. 10 (envelope), Legal Letter, 10 x 15 cm and 13 x 18 cm. In addition, during operation, noise levels of around 45 dB (A) should be expected.

Compatible battery and connectivity

As mentioned earlier, Epson Workforce WF-110W has the great advantage of avoiding any type of cables in its configuration, including a battery that provides power to print up to 50 pages on a single charge (which can be recharged via a USB port in approximately three hours). For even greater flexibility, an optional external battery is available that provides the power to print up to 410 pages.

Complementing with the intention of gaining portability, the presence of Wi-Fi connectivity enables the use of all types of equipment such as laptops, phones and tablets to print from a distance. Its compatibility includes proprietary technologies such as Epson Connect, the Epson iPrint mobile app and even receiving files from anywhere in the world via email via Epson Email Print, although there is also support for external technologies such as Google Cloud Print and Apple AirPrint.

In the case of physical connections, only one USB input is needed to synchronize with computers that have operating system Mac OS X 10.6.8 or higher, or Windows in almost all its existing versions (from Windows XP SP3 to the latest Windows 10).

In conclusion it is clear that ease of use and reduced design are prioritized over available features. Whenever you want more at the performance level, you can opt for conventional models of the brand such as the Epson WorkForce WF-2835DWF that does not forget to add support for scanning, copying and even faxing, among other technical benefits.
