Nothing Technical: EPSON L455 Simply Delivers its Promise with Ease

L455_01For those gadget savvy, authors and people believing in reading printed text and keeping electronic text in paper form, students working their heads out in projects and a new breed of freelancers and employees working from home under the concept of ‘SOHO’, this product review is dedicated to you.  The product we are talking about is a Printer.  We know that the moment we say Printer, three things pop into our mind – Finding a place to keep it in the computer table, tangled wires and managing the ink from drying so we get it working when we need it most. Trust me, I too belong to this league and I have 3 printers all lying idle. It is a costly real estate keeping it in my ever cramped home of books, papers and gadgets.  It has been a frustrating experience buying a printer with the idea of getting everything done in-house and when we do want to use it, it just does not work, spews ink and ultimately makes you run to a shop to get it printed. So post 2013, whatever printer related work has always been a run to the shop at last minute. A staunch NO to repeated requests for a printer and sometime even laserjets were suggested as an option going by the volume of printing we do. Whoever said we are going towards a paperless world should check our volume of paper used for printing, thanks to every organization we work with who wants hard copies with soft copies. Not to leave out the scanning and copiers aspect, it has been a huge investment of time and money, let me mention it here, it is not to take the copy, but going in search of a shop in an auto or car to get it.

Wow! Not yet! I have missed out a lot more that makes my life complete, what is wrong in calling my gadget my companion of life? And I just cannot miss it even for a moment.
