The Epson Workforce Pro WP-4533 is a sturdy multifunction printer for small offices and workgroups that's easy to set up and performs its duties quickly. For $399 list, the WP-4533 delivers a networked, two-sided color CMYK inkjet printer, plus scanner, copier and fax machine with the ability to operate and print from local and networked printers. Adding a Wi-Fi access point brings the ability to print from devices over Apple AirPrint and Google CloudPrint too.
Once out of the box, the WP-4533 took literally seconds to set up. Installing the four color ink cartridges was a snap, and before we knew it the printer was humming, clicking and pumping out the test pages. When printing a page consisting mostly of color graphics, the WP-4533 took about 22 seconds to print the first page, and it spit out the remaining 19 pages in 2:44. That's a rate of about 6.7 pages per minute, shy of the printer's rated speed for color out of 11 ppm. For black-only printing, the WP-4533 got closer to its rating of 16 ppm, completing a 20-page stack in about 1:46, which we calculate to be 11.4 ppm.
