The PX810FW is the new A4 MFP in Epson's Picture Stylus rate, with a memory card reader, touchscreen and complete fax, print, scan and copy capabilities. It is hoped at users who are serious about their home Picture printing and utilizes a fix of 6 Epson Claria Picture inks. Dissimilar many A4 inkjets, high capacity cartridges are in build in the form of Epson's T079 Owl inks, which can less your print price from around per mixed-colour page utilizing the T080 Hummingbird inks. Another characteristics probably to endear the PX810FW to photographers is its dedicated picture tray for 6x4in, 7x5in or 16:9 paper.
A big front panel mixes a touchscreen display with various touchpad buttons. You can utilize it to send faxes and carry out Computer-less printing, scanning and copying choices. Unfortunately it appears ugly and experiences unresponsive. Many of the menus are badly planned, similar to a copy enlargement display that needs you to tap a button over-and-over to alter the size.
The Windows installer lets you choose which parts you need, which can store a little time and disk place. You can link the printer through Universal Serial Bus, 10/100 Ethernet or WiFi. Wireless configuration is unnecessarily complicated. You can choose your network utilizing the touchscreen, but the just way to enter your password is through laboriously
scrolling by a list of letters. You can too form the wireless circumstances through linking a USB cable throughout installation, but this is even unwieldy.
File printing is not outstanding but it is excellent than that of few examples in the similar range. Draft text is pale but solid - and it is fast so at 17.6ppm. Common content is a bit fuzzy about the edges but dark, legible and reasonably speedy at 8.1ppm. Colour files printed at 5.5ppm - we utilized the printer's standard Text quality circumstances to get this velocity.
Colour illustrations appeared a little pale but quality was usable. This MFP is at its powerful though when printing pictures - entire our prints appeared gorgeous, with bright, exact colours, great contrast and no visible dithering in shaded fields. A 6x4in print at the highest quality setting assumes around one minute and 19 seconds.
Epson's scanner interface is intelligent, with several manners creating it simple to utilize whether you need to control each detail or only click and scan. Scan velocities are fast, also - a 600dpi 6x4in picture scan assumed only 13 seconds. However, the 4,800x4,800dpi scanner is not the excellent we have seen from Epson. It captures well detail accurately, but few subtlety of colour and shading is lost. Colour copy quality is too a small inaccurate but we were happy with mono.
The PX810 prints stunning pictures and prices surprisingly little to function but scan quality and plain paper prints are simply usable, instead than outstanding. You could simply buy excellent stand-alone printers and scanners, or a more well-rounded photo MFP similar to Canon's similarly priced Pixma MP990.
