Epson PictureMate 290

 

This Epson's rugged wipe-clean design means it's the most practical of all for parties and other such events

Excellent quality prints ; Quick ; Well-designed

Steep price

Contrast, saturation and perceived sharpness were very high, and the Epson produced the most striking portrait shot of all, though the blue sky in our landscape shot looked a little grey and flat

The Epson PictureMate 290 follows in the footsteps of its predecessor and offers excellent print quality, fast print speeds, a great user interface, and a valuable built-in CD burner.

Epson's top-of-the-range portable inkjet printer features a DVD drive, Bluetooth transfer and large 3-inch screen. How will it fare on the Best4Reviews test slab?

Print speed matches Epson's claims - making it the fastest in its class, colour-rich, sharply detailed prints outclass competing dye subs

The Cold War 'Funeral in Berlin' era styling, the high asking price (though a non Bluetooth model is available for a more reasonable £99)

It’s rare that we have hardly anything bad to say about a device – but the Epson PictureMate 290 is one of those instances. It’s simply a great product – and with a more competitive price (which you’ll doubtless find online) just perhaps deserving of a...
