Dreame and Epson Take the Work Out of Work from Home

Category: Hardware Published on Wednesday, 28 April 2021

If cleanliness is akin to godliness our office deserves a halo, especially with a new robot vacuum roaming around slurping up dirt as it travels.

The new Dreame L10 Pro ($359)  is the latest entry in a long line of robot vacuum cleaners and - - - if the price stays at $359 - - - should give the competition a run for dominance. But, according to some reports we've seen while trolling the Internet, that price may increase to $549. This could prove to be detrimental, at best, due to its budget-sized list of features.

On the plus side:

On the minus side:

Overall, the Dreame L10 Pro is a good choice for those of us without deep pockets. But watch out for price increases, especially with the continuing trade dispute between the U.S. and China.

Every year, the folks at Epson roll out a new line of printers, so it was inevitable we'd beg them to send us one to play with. Enter, stage right, the Epson Workforce Pro WF-7840 ($299).

This huge beauty uses ink cartridges instead of ink tanks featured on many of their other printers, making it more affordable for those of us working at home.

As with all Epson printers, it was easy to set up using the software included in the box and we had it up and running in about 15 minutes. But there is a caveat here: the printer often loses its WIFI connection, even if its in the same room as the modem/router. We were hoping that several firmwear updates from the company would cure the problem, but, alas, they haven't.

On the plus side, when its connected, this is a 45-pound beast of a printer/scanner, etc. It never failed to deliver crisp, high definition photos and documents.
