The Epson AcuLaser M4000N workgroup mono laser printer is designed for busy offices that need a cost-efficient but user-friendly and speedy printer. Expandability ensures efficiency for the growing business, while plug-and-play convenience makes the Epson AcuLaser M4000N network printer easier to integrate into various network environments, but the engine needs improvement when it comes to noise and performance.
The 21.5Kg matte plastic frame of the Epson AcuLaser M4000N printer is designed with simplicity and resilience in mind, housing the robust laser print engine, a 500MHz processor, and the 64MB memory. The standard paper cassette and multi-purpose tray offers a paper capacity of up to 700 sheets, but there is room for two additional 550-sheet paper cassettes. Connectivity is via parallel, high-speed USB, and Ethernet. The AcuLaser M4000N mono laser is large and boxy with a small backlit display screen on the minimalist control panel.
It is fast, network-ready, and easy to install. The Epson AcuLaser M-4000N workgroup printer produces good quality documents while graphics are printed well without obvious dotty patterns on the grayscale fills. Paper handling is versatile with additions and an optional stacker and duplexer. The web-to-print function in the software makes it easier to print web pages without losing the frames. The Epson AcuLaser M4000N monochrome laser printer is easily upgradeable for higher memory and an optional hard disk drive so the device can process confidential and complex jobs or store documents for reprinting with ease. The eco-friendly Epson AcuLaser 4000N return toner cartridge is sold at a discounted rate and users simply need to send back their empty cartridge to Epson for recycling to be eligible for this scheme.
The Epson AcuLaser M4000N is noisy for a laser printer, and the print costs are slightly higher than some of the printers manufactured by the competition. The duplexer is optional. The M4000N printer is also expensive when there are cheaper options with the same specifications available. Printing documents as well as printing in draft mode is slow. The control panel of the AcuLaser M-4000N could be better if it could be tilted or flipped-up for a better view.
