Was originally looking at purchasing the SX720WD but couldn't justify it given the price how often it would be used so settled on this SX525WD as a compromise given the generally favourable reviews & the price here on Amazon with one reviewer describing it as a mid to highend inkjet I hoped some of the kudos of the SX720WD would rub-off on it's sibling. On the whole I'm very pleased with my choice, text is pin-sharp with no heavy ink, colour reproduction is also very good my one criticism is if your printing photos this printer demands paper of the higest quality otherwise the finish is soft & somewhat grainy. Can't comment on ink usage as I haven't had it long enough but i can say I've had a good play & the levels have barely moved.
A very special mention must go to Epson, sure you can't please all the people all the time but before I purchased the SX525WD I did a bit of research on the net & on more than one occasion I came across Epson customers who'd e-mailed Epson with an enquiry only to recieve a call back. A not so insignificant detail that kept resonating with me given I was in the market for a wifi printer & so it proved with me. Couldn't see an e-mail working for me I'd made a mistake with wifi setup & needed walk-throu help so decided to give them a ring Tel-:Epson 0871 4237766 10pm from a BT landline (other manufactures take note) they were Fantastic!!!! the guy on the other end was so well informed clearly wasn't reading from a script really knew his apples & had my wifi setup in 5mins max! Brilliant customer service could't recommend them enough.
