    Epson Expression Premium XP-605 review

    7  

    The Expression Premium XP-605 is smaller and more compact than previous Epson printers, but does it do enough to tempt you to upgrade?

    Although the all-black A3+ Epson 1500W/Artisan 1430 printer looks different to the two-tone Epson 1400, under the hood it's a different matter.

    A low-budget wireless all-in-one inkjet without the usual sting in the tail?

    Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD review

    7  

    A stickler for tradition, Epson's PX720WD resists the temptation of settling for five inks, as found in the likes of the Canon PIXMA MG5150 and HP Photosmart Premium C309G. So instead of getting both dye-based and pigment-based black inks as a compromise between document and photo printing, the Epson goes for the full 6-ink monty.

    Epson BX305FW review

    Inkjet printers have a sloppy reputation for business printing. Run a highlighter pen over an important phrase of text and you're likely to end up with a smudgy mess. A few raindrops can make ink-printed envelopes almost unintelligible. Colour laser printers make a viable alternative but they tend to be big, heavy and expensive, so what's the answer? Epson bridges the gap between regular inkjet and laser printing with its resin-based DURABrite Ultra inks, which are practically dry by the time they hit the paper and are remarkably resistant to water, smudging and fading.

    Epson has always bucked the inkjet printing trend, using cool-running piezo-electric print heads to get the ink onto the paper, instead of boiling it in the conventional thermal fashion. The company claims this gives greater freedom when it comes to formulating inks, as the consideration of a rapid boiling and cooling cycle is taken out of the equation.

    You may well have thought that the days of the flatbed scanner are behind us, thanks to multifunction print/fax/scan/copy machines and digital photography. But no. They continue to sell well to people with old photos, negatives and slides that need scanning. This is because the flatbed offers a better scanning quality and accessories than all-in-ones.

    Dear oh dear, the Epson looks more like a mop bucket than a printer! Its slab-sided design, muted grey finish and crude-looking buttons are worrying, given that it’s the most expensive printer on test.

    Although the Epson Stylus DX9400F has a SRP of £130, you’ll find it on sale for £100, which seems very reasonable for a printer and scanner that includes a fax.

    Whether they use pigment- or dye-based inks, one almost universal problem with inkjet printers is that their output onto plain paper can be ruined by smudging, either merely by wiping a hand across the page or by a wayward drop of water. By contrast, the DX8400 uses Epson's cunning Durabright inks, which are resin-based.

    The 4490 offers much of the appeal of the 4990 Photo but at a far lowerprice. It boasts the same 4800x9600dpi resolution for a start, thoughthe stratospheric resolution figures being bandied about

    One of the aims of such tests is to establish how much you need to payfor a flatbed scanner. Central to this is whether you want high-quality film scanning, as this is what tends to bump up the price.

    The Epson R285 is a bare-bones A4 printer which doesn't even include PictBridge support. What you do get, however, is Epson's latest generation of Claria dye-based inks that are delivered from six replaceable cartridges.

    On the face of it, the RX585 appears to be based on exactly the same print engine as the Epson R285, but adds all the extras you could wish for, including a multi-format card reader and colour screen for direct printing

    This colour inkjet boasts CD printing facilities, a rack of camera card bays and a large colour LCD screen for previewing shots. You can also print from BlueTooth devices, but need to buy a separate dongle to do this
