Epson - Stylus DX9400F


The ongoing attraction of All-in-One printers shows no sign of diminishing and the latest Epson Stylus is designed to cram as many functions as possible within a compact body. Measuring a tidy 435 x 219 x ...

Epson Stylus DX9400F


Excellent quality prints and the pack is good value as its the same dx9400F printer with an external print server for not much more, cheaper than buying separately. Have set up with multiple printers and laptops all printing to it using wi-fi.

Print server is tricky to set up - patience required - not for the novice.
