Good quality scanner and printer for the money, works with all my wifi devices and is pretty quick.

not the best print quality for photo's, but I was using copier paper and you probably wouldn't buy this printer to print photo's anyway.

Epson Expression XP-205 AIO C11CC49301

 

Good print quality even on low cost paper. Prints from android devices. Picked up network easily I was wondering how to enter the network key then I realised it was already online.

The printer control panel has only a few buttons some of which seem to serve a couple of functions with little explanation. without an LCD screen or menu functions its just that bit hard to control the printer so I almost feel I should have spent a...

Cheap, does the job, Bought to replace my BX300 which had stopped recognising cartridges; it's a bit faster. Haven't really looked at print quality because I don't generally care much as long as it's readable.

Install rather irritatingly interrupts internet connection for ages without warning beforehand - killed a download that was in progress. No document feeder, but what to expect for such a cheap product?
