Reasonably fast printing bearing in mind the price

Irritating more than bad - the power is switched off after a period (not sure how long) of inactivity and I can find no way of stopping this.

Epson Expression Home XP-305

 

Easy to use. Ink is more reasonably costed than some and you can buy the four different inks separately..

Ink is used quickly on photos and is a major expense for the average punter. It is cheaper to get your photos printed on line!!!

Consumer review by: Cathy (reevoo.com)

Epson Expression Home XP-305

 

Good points are purely that its wireless printing and enables you to put in a memory card to print off.

Very slow at printing, takes up to 5 minutes to even register that a computer is telling it to print and then takes a further 5 to actually print. Per page. So far the ink isn't living up to how much it costs. Also the scanning side of this is NOT...
