PC-free photo printing is both quick and easy when using the Epson Stylus SX415.
Home users will be able to enjoy the cost saving benefits of only needing to replace the ink cartridge that’s been used. This is due the machine using an individual ink cartridge system.
As well as having photo printing capabilities, this device can scan and copy making it a versatile machine for a range of home office tasks.
Selecting and printing photos from a memory card can be carried out using the printer’s 6.3cm LCD screen. This screen contributes to the sleek design of a model that is compact and capable of fitting on a desktop.
The photo printing functionality of the SX415 extends to being able to print directly from PictBridge compatible digital cameras.
A print resolution of 5760 x 1440dpi will help colour prints look vibrant and vivid whilst text will appear clear and crisp.
Whilst the design of the Epson Stylus SX415 is generally in keeping with the style of many other printers in the range, this model is slightly bulkier, though this isn’t a massive drawback for a competent home printing machine.
Printing isn’t the only feature available, with scanning and copying options that see this device considered as a potential home office machine. However, home office users may query the usefulness of a printer that offers speeds of 4.5ppm which could be considered too slow for those who print at high volumes.
For the kind of printing carried out within the family home, the machine is more than capable of providing the sort of results that users will appreciate.
Value for money can be dependent on the initial cost price you pay with anything below the £100 mark representing a good purchase for the home environment.
Good for families whilst being a little limited as a home office machine, the SX415 can provide a cost effective way to manage your printing.
