Having been without a printer for some time, and finding not having one problematic in this modern age, i decided it was time to get back upto speed & so plumped for the Epson XP-405. With space around my PC at a minimum, the main selling points for me are the compact size & wireless connectivity. I have the printer a few rooms away from my PC, it only gets 2 bars, but works fine. To get the printer to work wirelessly, you'll need a wireless router & have to input the wireless key (WPA) password for your router upon setup(BT homehub's have them on a sticker at the back of the router). Here are my current thoughts on the product:

Pros:
-Print is clear & vibrant.
-Easy to follow 4 step setup guide.
-Wireless & USB connectivity.
-Can be linked through Epson connect & print from a mobile PC, laptop, smart phone or tablet etc..
-Small LED screen for easy operation.
-Modern sleek design.
-Compact size.
-Solidly built.
-Reasonably light weight.
-First four inks supplied, along with power cable.

Cons:
-Front LED & control panel area seems a bit flimsy if you apply too much pressure on the buttons.
-The USB A-B cable is NOT supplied with the printer.
-Drinks ink quite quickly.
-Locked into buying Epson ink cartridges that cost over £20 for a, four pack, ink replacement.

In conclusion, the Epson XP-405 is great for light home usage, i'm very pleased with my purchase overall. Recommended.

After wasting my money buying complicated useless iphone/ipad printing apps I decided to replace my printer with a simple easy to use one to use with my ipad/iphone. This is it. Just plug it in and away you go. No complicated set up. No cd setup installing. Ideal and less than 70 quid. It also has 'AirPrint' which makes everything so much easier.
I am a low user so not sure how the ink will last. Comes with starter inks and if you shop around replacement inks can be found for £20. If you are a low user, don't want lots of features but just want to print out web pages,emails and docs from your iphone/ipad then this is the printer to buy.

I've been using Epson Printer since 2002 (had 3 printers and all were one in all thing, like copier, scanner).
So I love the simplicity of using Epson, like the software that comes with, etc.
There are so many positive (like quality of the scanning, printing quality, touch screen), so I would like to point out some negatives (as everyone so far gave 5stars for this model).

- Black ink goes out fast (I only printed around 30 pages, and it says I need to change the cartridge...). This machine also has automatic "Power Off" system (which can be configured in setting), and it was switching off every 30mins or so in the beginning. Every time it switches off, the head was cleaning itself and consuming a lot of ink...

- No unofficial cartridges available at the moment (Oct 2012). It will be expensive to run.

- Wifi connection doesn't pick up signals as smooth as it should. This is a bit of disappointment for me personally. It was quite easy to set up the wifi (laptop, two iphones, and ipad). I would say it works most of the times (when I really need that work, it doesn't!), but sometimes 3 or 4 out of 10, haven't worked (no matter how close you get to the printer). I just tried now as I type this and it worked.

I would probably put 3.5 stars for this model, but certainly not 4star.

this has a habit of refusing to feed paper after a paper jam and Epson dealer said my warranty was invalid using ciss system even though the fault was mechanical the fault still persisted even after dealer inspection the cure is to move the wheel in the paper feed till it clicks . the wheel is d shaped to feed the paper in

Well I agree that some of the parts appear a little flimsy / breakable and I CERTAINLY agree that the start-up instructions and diagrams are pretty basic, so I nearly gave it only 4*. But it is dead easy to set up, from start to test-printing an email in my inbox. If a techno-numpty like me can do that in onew hour, then... :-). Quality appears excellent and speed is perfectly acceptable. This is only on one evening's use!

Pros

- cheap as chips
- very compact, not too heavy: would go on most desktops
- quality appears excellent
- colour reproduction ditto
- reasonable speed
- wifi set up is dead easy: and it works!
- excellent for the home / student user, I'd've thought

Cons

- some parts appear a bit flimsy
- instructions pretty basic

Jury out

- ink consumption
- reliability
- troubleshooting / jams etc

I'll update this review if there are any problems, but so far - excellent!

Super-easy to set up without a computer. We purchased this mainly to print from iPhone and iPad via AirPrint, and were relieved that it's completely standalone and doesn't need to be set up with a computer or anything. Simply add your wireless details and you're ready to go. You can even use all the scanning features on your Apple device if you download the free Epson app - scans came through crisps and clear, with all the usual cropping and adjustment features in the software.

Print quality is great as you'd expect from an Epson, on both plain and photo paper. Loading paper is also no-faff, with the printer doing all the hard work for you.

A great purchase - more than satisfied and would recommend it highly.
