Flexibility and freedom is offered with the Epson Expression Home XP-305 as a result of the Epson Connect feature that allows users to print from smartphones and tablets in a quick and easy fashion.
In addition to being able to print wirelessly from mobile devices, users will also appreciate having the opportunity to print from anywhere in the world simply by emailing documents or photographs directly to the printer. There is also the added bonus of the machine supporting Apple AirPrint for printing emails, photos and web pages directly from iOS devices.
Configuring the printer with your PC takes place automatically as the machine will find the relevant connection settings to configure itself. This is carried out by the XP-305’s automatic Wi-Fi set up feature.
Whether you’re looking for reliable document printing or lab quality photo prints, Epson’s Claria Home Ink is capable of producing a high standard of printing consistently.
When it comes to the consumables that are compatible with the XP-305, users can enjoy savings thanks to the printer using individual ink cartridges so you only need to replace the ink that’s been used.
There are further savings to be made as a result of this printer being able to accept XL ink cartridges so your printing can go further.
The Epson Expression Home XP-305 is designed to fit in small spaces and take up less room than other, similar printers.
It comes Wi-Fi ready to avoid being tethered by a USB cable. It can be connected to tablets, smartphones and laptops and is also compatible with Apple AirPrint. The printer can also be used to print documents directly from Google Cloud Print. The XP-305 can print images up to 5760 by 1440dpi, while it can print up to 15.8 pages per minute in monochrome and 13.2 pages per minute in full colour.
For offline use, the printer has a small 3.6cm colour LCD screen that lets users make some basic changes to photos loaded from memory cards before printing. It can also be used to copy without being attached to a computer; scanning to wireless devices is also available. The scanner’s max resolution is 1200 by 2400dpi.
The XP-305 makes use of four different ink cartridges: black, cyan, magenta and yellow. These cartridges are available in standard size (approximately 180 pages per cartridge) or XL size (approximately 450 pages). The printer comes with a 100-sheet input tray.
