Epson Stylus Photo PX820FWD: Features

Like Epson's mid-range Stylus Photo PX660, the PX820FWD uses the same six Claria inks, available in standard-yield or high-yield cartridges, feeding print heads that deliver a maximum of 5760x1440dpi resolution with a minimum droplet size of 1.5pl (pico-litre). However, the PX820FWD's print heads have twice as many nozzles per colour, at 180 instead of 90, enabling faster print speeds. The scanner is also a more high-res affair, boasting a maximum resolution of 4800x4800dpi.

Unlike most Epson printers, there's no rear-mounted paper feeder. Instead, you get a dual-input cassette that slots into the bottom of the printer.

The main tray holds A4 paper while a secondary tray is adjustable for 6x4-inch, 7x5-inch and 16:9 wide format photo papers. The photo tray is motorised so it engages automatically for photo printing but, if you want to create full A4 photo prints, you still need to empty the plain paper out of the main tray and replace it with photo paper, which is a bit of a
