Usually, cheap inkjet MFP designed for home use, but that we were able to test the model EPSON Stylus Office TX510FN can be used in a small office. This is possible due to the presence of Ethernet ports, allowing you to use MFP all the members of the network/workgroup without the need for constant activity of a PC when the MFP is connected to it via USB.

If you start from a digital index, the model TX510FN should “be located” between the representatives of the 600 and 400 series, but it’s not. In fact, TX510FN very much in common with “three hundred” family, one of the models which have already visited at us on testing. Most body panels are absolutely identical, differ only by the block of interface connectors, where TX510FN added network connector (the letter N in the model name indicates the presence of Ethernet port) and a barely significantly different to the control panel. However, the model cannot be called twins, because TX510FN, unlike TX300, equipped with two black ink cartridges, and the print speed is somewhat higher, but more on that later.

A large part of the device housing made of black plastic with matte surface and glossy quite a bit, but he is in control panel, so the surface gets dirty pretty quickly. Otherwise, the quality of materials and assemblage does not cause censures.

The front is only two-piece telescopic output tray with a folding guide paper on the edge of the last partition.

Back concentrated all connectors – power supply (PSU built into the case, so MFP high-voltage current), a pair of RJ-11 connectors intended for connection to a telephone and telephone line, the USB port and the network connector RJ-45.

On top is the cover of the scanner with the module of automatic feeding of documents, equipped with a folding tray that folded hides elements of the document feeder, making the device look more “homemade”.

At the rear of the MFP set 3-section telescopic paper holder, which, as in the case of the tested model, TX300F, heavily folded section of the holder a little “bites”. Note that the frequent folding and unfolding of the holder at the edges of the sections quite quickly, you receive output that, fortunately, after wiping leaves no trace.

As already mentioned, the control panel is slightly different from that used in the model TX300F – a single selection key the operation mode (Fax/copier) is replaced with three separate keys (Fax, copier and scanning).

Sides of the device are a excavation-handle designed to facilitate the lifting of the scanner module.
