Epson Stylus Photo PX660

RH Numbers

This isn’t the cheapest all-in-one in Epson’s range, so you’d expect a few bells and whistles. Yet there are surprisingly few, with a single paper tray, no wireless and no duplex. It has does have six inks though – with light cyan and light magenta – and a good set of front panel sockets, including CompactFlash.

As usual with Epson, speed claims should be ignored. Epson says 37ppm and 38ppm draft, I say 4.7ppm and 3.5ppm in normal mode; not quick, in this group. Page costs, at 2.4p and 9.6p, are fair for black and very high for colour, only matched by its stablemate.

Epson Stylus Photo PX820FWD

RH Numbers

According to vendor pricing, this model ends up the most expensive A4 printer in the group. It has a second paper tray for photo blanks, a full set of card sockets and a large touchscreen. It also has a 30-sheet Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) and fax; so it bridges photo and home office use.

It uses the same set of six cartridges as the Stylus Photo PX660 and speed claims are still way over the top; I measured 7.7ppm and 6.1ppm for black and colour, against Epson’s 40ppm claim. Photo prints are excellent, with both vibrant colours and natural hues, depending on subject. Page costs are low for black and high for colour, the same as with the cheaper machine.
