Epson BX305FW review

 

Epson sets out to handle all your small office printing chores with the BX305FW

Robust, smudge-resistant printing on plain paper ; Simple to use, especially for standalone photocopying and faxing ; It can fax documents directly from your computer, without having to print them out first ; Photo output on plain paper looks better...

The single input tray makes for too much swapping between plain, letter-headed and photo paper ; Lack of auto duplex facility is missing a trick, since the resin-based inks are ideal for double-sided output ; No memory card readers or USB socket for...

Epson - Stylus Office BX305FW

 

Consumers on the hunt for a budget all-in-one printer for the small business or home office have plenty of choice right now, with major manufacturers competing for their cash. To stand out from the herd, companies ...

In a crowded home office market, the Stylus Office BX305FW boasts a fax facility, Wi-Fi connectivity, quick-drying ink and good quality photos. But its slothful speed and lack of memory card slots or PictBridge function make £100 seem rather steep...

Great printer. Worth every penny.

Easy to install, fast link up to WiFi, compact with excellent print quality

Sometimes prints gobbledegook, and need to reprint the page but it doesn't happen very often so I can live with that as the good things certainly out weigh this little problem.
