Epson Stylus Photo PX820FWD: Verdict

There's no denying that the PX820FWD is very expensive for an A4 printer, and running costs are above average as well.

Wi-Fi connectivity is nice to have, especially if you like to print photos from your laptop, from anywhere around the home, but the auto duplex unit, auto document feeder and standalone fax facility cater to office jobs that most of us don't require from a photo printer.

While the PX820FWD is a fair bit faster than Epson's own PX660, it costs much more than twice the price and photo quality is no better. In fact, the PX820FWD's skin tones and red hues can look a little muddy by comparison.
