A good little printer,
This review is from: Epson Stylus SX445w All-in-One printer with Wifi and email Print (Print, Copy and Scan) (Accessory)
Given the price etc this is a great little printer. I can't help thinking anyone moaning about print quality or speed is missing the point; it's not a top end printer, just a good everyday one. It's size is a bonus too: I wanted an occassional printer sitting in the corner and this does the job excellently. The wifi is really handy and even the print by email on occassion (means I can print from my phone). The print quality is perfectly good for both text and photos and the print speed pleasently surprised me (given the negative comments I saw here I was bracing myself to be disappointed).
Why only four stars? Well, I'm pretty techie and it was easy enough to set up right up to having a bit of a hissy fit trying to install it on my laptop over wifi. It killed my wifi, tried to connect direct. The installation tool is a bit cryptic and the printer instructions are a complete waste of space. This was taking the 'first install option' so I backtracked and sai it was already set up (which it was) and it all worked fine. Once I got through that little blip everything worked first time, configuring the wifi is remarkably simple and the printer just... well... prints.
All up its a great little low-end printer, be realistic about what its going to give you and you won't be disappointed.
