This review is from: Epson Stylus Sx535Wd All-In-One Printer with Wifi and Double Side Printing (Print, Copy and Scan) (Accessory)
I was looking for a printer to replace a 6 year old USB HP printer I had. I've had experience with various printers, HP are generally work horses but I've found the newer home budget versions tend to have problems with paper feeding, and they often lack an interface to tell you whats actually wrong. Having also used Epson printers, I went for a mid-range Epson, separate colours (this has 4 cartridges) my deciding factor for this model was that it stores paper below it, and not sticking out the back in the air, its wifi and has duplex.
I unboxed it, and got it connected to my wifi fairly easily, i thought i'd give the one press wps setup a try, but to be honest i wasn't sure if I was doing it right or not, so cancelled that and manually entered the key, which wasn't that much of a problem.
Printer appeared instantly to my wifi connected iphone, and printed emails and photos no problems.
I have a mac, and it perhaps wasn't quite as simple as I'd hoped. OSX Lion now requires different drivers and apple are meant to be distributing them, during the install you get given a link for OSX Lion drivers which tells you they are shipped with Lion. Anyway, in preferences you browse for printers, it finds it, however in my installation it had to go to apple, started downloading and then failed. I repeated this twice, with the same problems.
I think its installing the driver in the background, because I went away for 5 minutes tried again and this time it worked fine over Wifi. - so 1/2 a point deducted for that.
2nd.. Double sided printing on a mac. Got it all installed went to print, and selected the Layout and found that Two Sided printing was greyed out (hmm), surfed the net found lots of instructions for Snow Leopard with drivers that were not installed with OSX Lion. Then thought I should check the driver and the settings. Whats happened is the duplex option is on its own menu (Output settings) - so 1/2 point deducted for that.
Appears a good compact printer ideal for home sharing, scanning worked over wifi well. Looking forward to printing
haven't tried the google remote printing yet, although i'm sure that's going to be fine.
