We’ve taken a look at a few Epson printers here on technogog and they’ve all been fairly decent performers. The newest in the Epson line is the WorkForce 520 with a price of $130,  it appears to be very similar to the other WorkForce printers with a few tweaks here and there..

The WorkForce 520 delivers fast ISO PPM print speeds of 15 ISO PPM black and 5.4 ISO PPM color2.  ISO PPM speeds are based on a new international standard for measuring print speed, which is designed to give consumers an “apples-to-apples” speed comparison across all printer manufacturers as well as true performance.
