If you’re looking for a value for money wireless printer with great features then take a look at the Epson C11CC87201 Expression Home XP-410 Wireless Printer with a Copier and Scanner.
Straight from the start you’ll notice just how easy it is to set up this wireless printer from the box to your shelf. With an average set up time of around 1 hour, you can have confidence that you’ll be able to grab this beauty out of the box and have it printing your holiday photos in less than no time (well, an hour.. But still, an incredible time!).
Once you’ve got it out of the box you’ll easily be able to install the ink cartridges (yes, no more blue and red hands from breaking the cartridges!) within a few minutes and then move onto the software side of things. Once the printer has been set up (cable in and power switched on) you’ll be prompted with a message asking you to put in your wireless key to initiate the connection onto your network, which means that you’ll need to have an active internet connection to install the printer.
After this part has been done you’ll need to install the drivers onto your computer via the provided disc which will then download any updates, taking around 10 minutes or so to complete. Once this is done, you’re ready to roll and print out your documents and photos!
The Actual Printing
The print quality of the Epson C11CC87201 Expression Home XP-410 Wireless Color Inkjet Printer with Copier and Scanner is incredible and not too costly which is always a refreshing change of pace. With a fast print rate you won’t be looking at spending hours next to the printer waiting for your documents to print which is another benefit that the wireless printer offers.
One of the great features that the Epson C11CC87201 Expression Home XP-410 also offers you is the fact that you can print from any phone, tablet or iPod which is connected to your printer. You can also send documents directly from any cloud hosting that’s on your local network, meaning that you’ll be able to get those holiday photos printed without the hassle of constantly changing the locations of them from PC to PC, always nice!
Due to the fact that this printer is under $100, you’ll also be greeted with some disadvantages too. They aren’t catastrophic but they are there unfortunately, but it’s to be expected.
If you try to print your photos right off a memory card it can take up to 5 minutes to process a standard 4 by 6 print at maximum quality. The printer doesn’t allow you to connect via a camera with a built in SD card or anything else through a USB port, meaning that in the event that your camera has internal storage that you want to print from you’ll have to go through the process of taking the photos off of your camera to your PC and printing that way.
All in all it’s a truly great piece of office equipment and a very solid wireless printer. The Epson C11CC87201 Expression Home XP-410 Wireless Printer gets a nice 4 star rating from us due to not being the easiest to use and a tad pricier than the competition.
