Epson Expression Home XP-430 review

 

Every inch of space is essential for modern desks cluttered with devices, charges, and accessories. And unless you're a productivity powerhouse or operating a business out of your home, there's no reason why you need a giant printer taking up half your...

Along with remote printing, the space-saving Epson XP-430 "Small-in-One" can also print from a variety of mobile devices including iOS, Android and Amazon Fire tablets. It features reliable output quality and a large color screen for making simple...

It doesn't offer two-sided printing and the cost per page for the ink cartridges is slightly higher than average.

Epson Expression Home XP-430 Small-in-One

 

The Epson Expression Home XP-430 Small-in-One is a compact budget MFP geared toward home use, with a modest feature set and good text quality.

Budget price. Compact. Lightweight. Above-par text. Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct.

No fax. Photo printing is slow. Relatively high running costs. Lacks an Ethernet port. No auto-duplexer or ADF. Lacks port for USB thumb drive.

Conclusion Manufacturers have to sacrifice some features in order to build a sub-$100 MFP. Absent from the Epson Expression Home XP-430 Small-in-One are Ethernet, an auto-duplexer, an ADF, fax capabilities, and a USB port for thumb drives. Most of...

Epson Expression Home XP-430 Small-in-One Review and Ratings

 

We found lot to like about this light, compact all-in-one's feature set and print quality, but its high operational costs and lack of an ADF relegate it to light duty.

Decent print, scan, and copy quality ; Easy to set up and use ; Good cloud, mobile-device support ; Small and lightweight ; SD card support ; Low purchase price

Cost per page is too high ; Slow print speeds ; No ADF ; No USB flash-drive or PictBridge support

If you plan on printing, copying, or scanning lots of multi-page documents, we’ve given you some good reasons to think twice about buying this printer and to aim higher. It works for us well enough in low-volume environments, but we don’t mean just...

Consumer review by: Sbecker3854 (cnet.com)

1 year old hardly used and throwing it in the garbage

 

I am totally frustrated with this machine, not sure why cnet tests were so good, they should put the machine on the shelf for a few months and try the tests again.

Worked good when I first got it.

Will not print anything now and have tried replacing ink and all maintenance tasks.

Low cost / Easy setup / Nice printing

 

I have bought 3 of these now, for myself, family members and a disabled friend. The setups have gone extremely smooth and quick, the flexibility for connectivity has made it a big hit, and at this low cost point there really isn't much room to complain.

The cost, the ease of setup, decent print quality, great flexibility for connecting devices (PC/MAC/Mobile/Email/Google)

Like all low cost printers it doesn't give you the feeling of quality, be realistic it is a plastic $50 printer...

Will not buy an Epson again

 

Unreliable. I had to google my way through problems and got help from other consumers that had the exact same problems. Troubleshooting was not helpful at all. After a rocky set-up process, it worked with a USB cable until it was time to replace the...

worked initially

Will not print black ink despite replacement, wifi setting never worked properly
