Epson Stylus NX515

 

Epson's Stylus NX515 color inkjet multifunction printer (MFP) is well priced for the home or student user ($130 at this writing). Speed and a few notable features help it stand out, despite its high ink costs and other shortcomings.

Very fast; Wi-Fi connectivity ; Capable of banner printing

Pricey inks; unhelpful documentation ; Skimpy, flimsy paper trays

A student or home user will like this model's speed, but not its ink costs and other quirks.

Epson Stylus NX515 Review

 

Calling the Epson Stylus NX515 an all-in-one is a bit of stretch, considering it doesn't include a fax machine. On the other hand, not everyone wants or needs to send and receive faxes, and eliminating that feature while retaining a flatbed scanner...

Built-in Ethernet and Wi-Fi; integrated scanner with exceptional photo-restoration features; attractive industrial design

Exposed paper tray will accumulate dust; can't print on CDs; poor document-printing performance

This printer delivers a lot of bang for the buck, but we'd trade some of its fancier features for better print quality.

The Epson Stylus NX515 All-in-One printer represents a sweet spot for vendors. The $150 price tag seems to be just the amount of money folks are willing to spend on a printer for intermittent use, either at work or in the home. However, just because...

Fastest output speeds on any inkjet to date; outstanding print quality; compact footprint; inexpensive; robust driver options.

Higher-than-average cost per page; lacks creative software suite.

The Epson Stylus NX515 is a capable machine that will improve the efficiency of any office or work-at-home setup. Not only is it a lightning-fast all-in-one, but it also has a broader range of features than most other $150 AIOs. As long as you don't...

Epson Stylus NX515

 

Whatever the relationship between the NX400 and NX515, it's very much worth mention that the NX515 addresses every shortcoming I saw in the NX400 last year, while carrying forward almost all of the NX400's strengths. And although it's designed...

Extraordinarily fast. High-quality output, particularly for text and photos. Ink is smear-resistant, even on plain paper

Only limited potential for the dual role of home and home office, with features that concentrate on home use

The Epson Stylus NX515 focuses on tasks central to a home, rather than home-office, all-in one, but also delivers surprisingly high-quality text at fast speed.
