Epson Stylus Photo 1500W review

Wireless A3+ printer that's great for glossy photos

TODO alt text

Slotting into the Epson photo printer lineup between the Epson Stylus Photo 1400 (which we expect to be phased out soon) and Epson Stylus Photo R200, the Epson Stylus Photo 1500W hits the sweet spot of convenience, quality and functionality when it comes to wide-format A3+ printing.

We liked

It's easy to use, with W-Fi printing giving it additional versatility. The printer driver offers a good level of control, and glossy prints are excellent.

We disliked

Getting the best, neutral black and white prints on glossy paper is a challenge, and ultimately if you intend on printing lots of monochrome images you need to consider looking elsewhere.

Final verdict

The Epson Stylus Photo 1500W comes with a decent range of colour profiles, and is capable of good results straight out of the box. It doesn't do anything to dent Epson's reputation for producing printers that excel with glossy media, and it's a sold all-rounder, capable of producing high-quality pictures for the price. Running costs can be on the high side, though.
