Installing the ink was easy enough and the included software also installed on my laptap with no trouble, but then began the real frustration. After you go through the installation and registration, it will take you to the Epson Connect site where you have to download more drivers and updates and then sync with Google Cloud printing, sync with AirPrint and so on. It was a long multi-step process before I was actually able to print and scan things. The basic scans I took came out quite nice, but the printing didn't fair as well. It's not that it prints out bad picture, per se. Looking at them on their own they look great. But when compared to printouts from my older model Epson (that sold at the same price point) they look less clear and more washed out, fine details are lost. To see if it was just me, I went on a quasi-scientific test where I printed out three identical full page pictures on my old Epson and on this new Epson and asked people to choose. Unanimously the pictures from the older Epson were chosen for "being clearer" and "having better color".
What's even worse, while I can get this printer to scan and print fine from my computer, I can't get it to work at all using the touch screen on the printer itself. When I try to scan anything, it just tells me I have no computer connected. I've run the wi-fi wizard from the touch screen, entered my router password multiple times and it takes it and says it's connected but the minute I try to scan something from the screen it goes right back to saying there's no computer connected. Finally I gave up and tried scan from the screen to the cloud only to be told that no account information was set up for the cloud on my Epson Connect account, but when I go to my Epson Connect account on their webpage it says I'm registered and currently connected. So basically the wireless works, as in I don't have to connect it physically with a USB cord, but it only works if I command it to print or scan from the laptop itself, not the actual printer.
Other things to keep in mind are I found it to be fairly noisy and it makes a shrill beeping sound every time a print job is finished. Also, the screen asks you a lot of questions. Every time you turn the printer on it makes you verify the paper size and type you're using even though you haven't changed anything. If you want to copy something you have to chose number of copies and then black and white or color, which is pretty standard, but after that it asks you to pick density, borders, reduce or enlarge, (once again) your paper type, what quality you want it in - and even then nothing will print unless you press the button that looks like a sideways square. That's the start button and it must always be pressed no matter what you're doing or you'll be standing there waiting for nothing to come out.
In short, this printer isn't very user-friendly or simple to operate. I currently have two other printers in my home office (one of them USB connected and one of them wi-fi) and this is by far the most frustrating to operate. It will work if you need a fairly cheap printer in a pinch, and it does print even full page photos in under thirty seconds, and with individual ink cartridges for replacing each color (though I don't yet know if the whole thing will stop, for example, until you replace the yellow). But I found it annoying, and there really doesn't seem to be any reason why picture print quality should be getting worse with a newer model.
It is a bit smaller than the other Epson printers I've owned. It's designed, really, for personal use by a single user or small family. It would be ideal for a student dorm. (It is a bit noisier than some printers I've used, so roommates might complain if you print very late at night ... or, more likely, early in the morning.)
It's easy to set up. Just plug it in, remove all the tape, turn it on, install the ink cartridges, and then let it calibrate for a few minutes. Once that was done I set it up on my local network (easy to do using the LCD screen and buttons on the front of the printer), then found the "Epson iPrint" app on the Apple store for my iPhone and iPad. I opened the app, let it find my printer on the network and it was ready to print. Obviously, you can print any documents or photos stored on your phone or tablet -- what I was happily surprised to find is that you can also use the app to hook up to various online storage sites like Box, Dropbox, Evernote, GoogleDrive and Microsoft OneNote (those were just the options it gave me, because I have all of those linked to my phone but I assume there are other possibilities). Just enter your password and give the app access and then you can print any of those docs. That's a real boon, since I do most of my work-related document editing on GoogleDrive and Dropbox.
After I'd done that, I also downloaded the driver from the website and set up the scanner and the driver on my laptop. It does come with a disk that you can use to install the driver on Macs or PCs but since my Macbook Pro doesn't have a disk drive I just googled "Epson XP-420 Driver" and got to the right place in seconds. A few minutes later I was ready to go on my laptop as well.
Scanning works well. Printing works great. So does copying. Photo printing is pretty good. Not "photo quality" to my eyes, but if you use photo paper it's pretty close.
This is a good small printer that does pretty much anything you'd need. What I like about it most is that it was so easy to set up on my phone and tablet, since more and more often I use those to access documents and it's easy to print anything I have available through my cloud accounts without any hassle. Recommended.
I received this as a gift from my mother for my birthday because I am constantly having to use her printer due to my old one not working. I went and looked at some in stores but the prices were nearly $100 and since I was picking it out I wanted something that did the job but at a reasonable price. I was looking around on Amazon and came across this printer and decided to try it out since it had great reviews.
First off, It was very easy to set up and I just followed the instructions. My mom read them to me and I did the set up. The ink was easy to install and so far we are still using the ink that came with it (1-2 weeks s). Although, we haven't been printing off the wall either so I'm sure that helps.
After we got the printer set up i've been downloaded the app which worked just fine for me. Since the computer is hooked up to Wi-Fi I am able to print things from my iPhone without having to have the app so it really wasn't needed.
I printed a picture on photo paper for my grandfather who is in the nursing home and I was pleased with the outcome of the quality. I have included pictures of the printer and also of the way my photo printed.
This is definitely a great deal and one that you should not miss out on!
