Looking to print off your latest dissertation or script? This Epson printer is a great way to do it - and it's seen a huge price drop, too.

While much of our lives are confined to our laptops, smartphones and tablets in digital form, there's always a need for a printer. Whether it's for submitting a hard copy of a piece of work, printing out a document to get it signed or notarized, or any other reason, it doesn't hurt to have a printer handy.

Printers themselves have come a long way from the nineties and noughties, too, and as they've got more reliable they've actually become more affordable, too. A great example is the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-3820 printer which is available at a steep discount at Best Buy right now.

The retailer has slashed the price down to just $79.99 -- a $120 saving from the $199.99 MSRP.

As the phrase "all in one" would suggest, the Epsom WorkForce Pro WF-3820 is a true multipurpose machine.

When it comes to printing, it uses heat-free technology to print pages quickly in color or black and white, and this also helps it print large quantities reliably -- there really is nothing worse than printing a huge document only for it to get stuck halfway, after all. To that end, this model holds 250 sheets at once.

It can also scan documents, too, and uses a wireless setup process which means it doesn't need to be plugged into your device at all so you can print from your phone, tablet, or laptop.

It also has a 2.7-inch color touchscreen for on-device control, meaning it's easy to manage projects at a glance.

User reviews are very positive, too, with an average rating of 4.3 stars out of 5 on Best Buy's site. Buyers have noted how easy it is to set up and use the printer, as well as the affordability of it even at full price.
