Epson Stylus Photo RX510


The Epson RX510 adds a film scanner to the standard home multifunction capabilities, all at an affordable price.

I have had my Epson RX510 for about five years now, and it does work very well. This one has six cartridges - Black, Magenta, Light magenta, Cyan, Light Cyan, and Yellow. The color it produces had wowed me five years ago but compared to todays...

The photo copier, flat bed scanner and printer all in the same unit is space saving as well as easy to use.

Epson inks are expensive and if one of the six inks run out, it simply will not print - even if you are not using that particular color in your print. A4 pages seem to more a fraction while printing and lets just say - this machine isn't exactly the...

A big disappointment in that I was unaware of the operating costs when I bought it. The re-inking of the heads every time you switch it on consumes valuable ink from fairly small colour ink cartridges. I haven't used the printer to it's full capacity...

The fact that I rarely use it so now I save money by not having to keep on purchasing colour ink cartridges. That it is a 3 in one machine (printer, scanner, photo-copier. Also that it enables you to scan photo negatives and slides.

The fact that every time you turn on the printer it re-inks the printer heads and uses up ink in all the colour and I assume black ink cartridges. Even if you just want to use the scanner and not the printer it will still use up ink when you first turn...

ZDNet has a review at,39023422,20281488,00.htm that mentions variable results with text, especially at 3 point. Who the hell WANTS 3 point text when there's choice? I haven't found any...

I bought my RX510 in July, and four months later can say that I am very happy with it. I’m one of these die-hards who is not convinced digital is the way to go for my family photographs — I want something a little more permanent than computer software...

There are a few little niggles I have had. The software packages are adequate, but lack any detailed manuals. The on-line manuals are sparse and lacking in detail. If using any of them on Advanced mode, it is up to you to figure out what the differing...

For its print quality alone it is worth the money BUT not having a Fax function compared to some other machines lets it down.

Ease of use, can operate via computer or independently, fantastic print quality, good solid feed tray that folds up, photo capabilities excellent.

No fax facility

Product Specifications

With its high resolution [5760 x 1440 Optimized dpi using Resolution Performance Management (RPM) Technology], three-picoliter micro droplets and the ability to print true BorderFree edge-to-edge prints on a variety of papers up to A4 size, the STYLUS PHOTO RX510 is an all-in-one photographic reproduction and printing solution. The STYLUS PHOTO RX510 utilizes an advanced new ink. This ink is a brand new chemical formulation, whereby the ink particles are strengthened against the damaging effects of gas and light. Colors are more vibrant, and stay brighter longer. The end result is long lasting, beautiful images with realistic skin tones and detailed gradations. The STYLUS PHOTO RX510's use of six individual EPSON Intellidge ink cartridges, each with new, high performance inks, plays a major part in the printer's outstanding photo printing capabilities. With the STYLUS PHOTO RX510, high quality photo printing without a personal computer is incredibly easy... and powerful. Digital Still Camera Memory Cards (Memory Stick, Compact Flash, SD Memory Card, xD-Picture Card, Smart Media, MultiMedia Card and IBM Microdrive) can be simply inserted into the STYLUS PHOTO RX510's five card slots for direct printing - it's that easy. To make printing directly from your digital cameras memory card even easier, EPSON's handy photo thumbnail sheet lets you choose the images you want to print from your memory card plus the print size and paper type - without turning on your PC. With a six-color ink system, the STYLUS PHOTO RX510 prints more faithfully and reflects the real-life color of your photographs. A wide color gamut ensures smooth tonal gradations and realistic skin tones.
