Epson Stylus Photo RX685 review

 

The Epson Stylus Photo RX685 is a fast, easy to use multifunction printer that includes some nice touches that are often found only in more expensive multifunction printers.

With great print quality for both photos and text, and features such as a duplexer, dual paper trays, a memory card reader, and standalone photo restoration, the Epson Stylus Photo RX685 is a very good multifunction printer. While its bundled software...

Epson Stylus Photo RX685

 

If you're interested in photo printing and graphics, Epson's Stylus Photo RX685 is built for the job. Combining a printer and a scanner, it's one of the largest consumer all-in-one devices we've seen. Its large 2.5 inch colour display makes it easy to...

Two peripherals for the price of, er, two. Great photos, but some niggles and too pricey.

Epson Stylus Photo RX685

 

The Epson Stylus Photo RX685 is a multi function printer with flatbed scanner, CD/DVD printer and memory card reader for stand alone printing.

Bright screen; Quick scanning; Quiet performance

More than double the price of its smaller cousin

Epson - Stylus Photo RX685

 

Epson only recently released the Photo Stylus R285 for people on low budgets who wanted to produce good quality photos. Now they've released two All-in-Ones - the RX585 and the RX685 - for those with a ...

A very reasonably priced and versatile multifunction device with several new software features and a welcome DVD printing facility, but spoiled by very loud operating noise at the beginning of each task.

Epson Stylus Photo RX685

 

Great all-in-one printer to have at home and I use it loads, especially for photocopying and copying photos. The photo restore function is especially good and can restore the most faded of pictures. Would definately recommend it.

The ink tends to run out quite quickly but helps that you can buy the inks separately and replace as and when.

Epson Stylus Photo RX685

 

The best thing is having seperate inks as on most printers the yellow runs out first so you have to through whats left in the tank away.

clarity of photocopies could be better, sharper.
