A quick search suggested that Epson are quite good with Linux drivers, and following some comments to my original review, I've got this working well with Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10. See the comments to this review for details on how to do this.
It was initially installed using Windows 7 in a VM. This was all fine until the installer suggested that updated firmware was needed. At this point the whole process locked up, and a lengthy-ish call (10p per minute) to Epson support managed to get things going again. The installation had to be completed manually, and I have no idea if the firmware was actually updated or not. Still, it works, so I've let sleeping dogs lie.
From Windows, the XP-605 works well across wifi, printing at a reasonable pace with good quality prints.
As a bonus, it can scan, and print directly onto CD/DVDs, although this is not something that will get a great deal of use.
Two paper trays - 100 A4 and 20 photo sheets, and double-sided printing complete the feature set.
In comparison to the old printer, it's a big improvement in speed, quality and printing costs.
I am absolutely delighted with it.
My one grumble is the connection to the wireless network and/or airport printing does not work effectively. As I have the printer plugged into the router via a USB printer cable this is not really a problem but I would find it very annoying otherwise - hence the 4-star rather than 5-star marking.
