Six-ink £100, $120

This Ep­son uses a stan­dard six-ink ‘photo’ line-up with no ad­di­tional pig­ment-based black ink for doc­u­ment print­ing. The set-up is no­to­ri­ous for pro­duc­ing black text that looks faint and grey, but in our tests text from this brace of Ep­son print­ers was as solid and black as from the five-ink mod­els in the group.

Fol­low­ing on from the Ep­son XP-630, this printer has a sec­ondary in­put tray for small-for­mat photo pa­per, but it also has a rear sheet feeder, which is more ideal for A4 photo pa­per and negates the need to swap pa­per in the main in­put tray. Fur­ther lux­u­ries in­clude a large 4.5-inch touch­screen, a mo­torised out­put tray that saves you the ef­fort of man­u­ally ex­tend­ing it for print­ing, and an ad­di­tional tray for print­ing di­rectly onto white-faced CD/ DVDs. Photo print­ing qual­ity is ex­cel­lent and fast (see XP-860 re­view, right).

Pros Three in­put feeds; ex­cel­lent qual­ity photo prints; mo­torised out­put tray Cons Auto photo en­hance­ments can make images look a lit­tle overly vivid We say

It’s a su­perb photo printer at a very com­pet­i­tive price, with low run­ning costs Over­all score

The 4.3-inch touch­screen makes for easy stand­alone print­ing and the rear sheet feeder is ideal for A4 photo pa­per
