Epson Stylus Photo P50 review


Epson's P50 is the photo printing successor to the R285

Great image quality ; Superb value for money

No standalone printing features at all

If you don't want all the fancy frills of standalone printing, the new P50 makes an excellent choice for printing punchy image quality at a reasonable price

Epson Stylus Photo P50


This six-colour inkjet photo printer can print CD/DVD labels, too.

Epson P50 review


While we can understand that not everyone wants a printer that can also scan and copy, we would expect many of today's customers to expect such luxuries as Wi-Fi or colour screens. The Epson P50 looks quite a substantial printer though, and the glossy...

This compact inkjet produces truly great photos, but it lacks a scanner, card reader or network interface. We expect more at this price.

Epson Stylus Photo P50


This high definition printer from Epson uses the company's own Claria Photographic Ink that Epson claims exceeds lab quality prints. When replacing the cartridges you only replace the ink you use, making it cost-effective. It'll even do prints in as...

Epson - Stylus Photo P50


Small, compact and attractive, the Stylus Photo P50 from Epson stands out from the majority of inkjet printers and MFDs in that it's surprisingly light on features. The front of the printer is relatively clutter-free, with ...

The Epson Stylus Photo P50 is a decent photo printer that's able to produce vivid prints. We do have some reservations, though, such as the time it takes prints to appear at the highest-quality setting and the lack of a built-in card reader. We'd also...

Do Not Waste Your Money


I have now come to the mindset that home printing is like pouring money down a drain, having bought three A3+ printers and spending a fortune on inks, only to get very bad results after a few months, using just about a full set of inks trying to get...
