Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD review

 

Can you colour yourself in glory with Epson's 6-ink photo printer?

New touch-panel interface makes standalone print and photocopy modes easier to use Generous range of media slots that include CF, SD, SDHC, MMC, MS and xD compatibility Auto duplex unit is a bonus for double-sided printing Fast in normal photo quality...

Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD

 

A top of the range, photo all-in-one which works a lot of good design into a small, neat box, with particularly neat CD/DVD print.

Integrated, powered photo tray, Quick turnaround of duplex pages, Fast photo prints

Black print on plain paper can be fuzzy, Noisy paper feed, Comparatively pricey colour print

Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD review

 

The Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD isn't a cheap photo printer, but it's a very strong performer with some nice features underneath the lid.

The Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD is old-fashioned in places. Overall, though, it's a very strong performer with some nice features underneath the lid. It's not cheap, but for a top quality multifunctional photo printer, this is a clear first stop.

Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD review

 

Epson's inkjets have long used individual ink cartridges attached directly to the head assembly, but the Stylus Photo PX720WD is something of a departure. Its cartridges fit into a front compartment and ink is fed to the moving print head through tubes.

It's not ideal for office work, but if you want a superb MFP for creative projects you needn't spend more.

Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD review

 

Epson's six-colour printing produces excellent photo quality, though this does push up the cost of colour printing

The only disadvantage is that using six inks increases the printing cost. Epson wouldn’t provide us with official costs, but we estimate that photo prints will come in at around 11p per page, although ordinary black-and-white printing should be a more...

Excellent print quality; Full of features – scanner, Wi-Fi, CD printing etc.; Simple to use on-printer menus; Duplex printing saves paper when printing documents; 6 inks in separate tanks

Product Specifications

The Epson Stylus Photo arrives as the first desktop ink jet printer to achieve Photo Reproduction Quality (PRQ) a significant new performance standard that, up to now, was reserved for printers costing thousands of dollars. This new photo printer achieves super smooth gradations and virtually continuous tone by combining Epson's exclusive, high-resolution Micro Piezo print head, AcuPhoto halftoning and revolutionary 6-color printing technology. What's more, the Epson Stylus Photo gives you the power to print anything from small snapshots to vivid, panoramic images. It includes Epson's high-powered PhotoEnhance module for making quick and easy adjustments to the most difficult photographs. And it offers optional support for Adobe PostScript Level 2 and Pantone Calibrated approved colors. Designed with professionals in mind, the Epson Stylus Photo is the perfect tool for photo-compositing, photo reproduction, advanced photo-editing and superior image printing.
