Epson Expression Premium XP-640 review

 

This all-in-one printer provides good quality for text, graphics and photos but – as always – you need to watch out for the cost of replacement inks. Here's our Expression Premium XP-640 review.

The strength of the XP-640 is its five-ink printing system, which makes it a good choice for people who want to print high-quality photos on a regular basis. However, its running costs are a little higher than average, and there are more affordable...

Epson Expression XP-640 Review: A Budget Speed Demon

 

You get plenty of features with the XP-640, including the novelty of CD/DVD disc printing. Low ink costs and fast performance are the biggest attractions here. Graphics quality is high if you print a lot of photos, although text quality leaves...

Fast printing speeds, including duplex ; Quick at making copies and high-resolution scans ; Below average ink costs ; Reliable touch panel

Text prints are not razor-sharp ; Slow black-and-white PDF scans ; Inconsistent scan quality

The XP-640 offers helpful features, high-quality graphics and fast performance across the board, although text quality is less impressive.

Great product

 

I have always liked the quality of the Epson printers for documents, especially prints, scanning, copying, etc. I am happy that I have returned to using Epson as my primary printer at home. The quality of Epson products is always top-notch.

Efficient printer

 

A neat little printer/scanner that produces good quality prints with what seems to be efficient use of inks. Loses one star due to its chaotic tray system. Reviews warned me about this but reality was still worse than expected. To print, you must raise...

Wonderful printer

 

I bought this printer to replace an aging old Epson SX100 printer. I am blown away by all of the features (e.g. printing straight off a phone etc), and the speed which is much faster than I have seen elsewhere. Quality is great as expected from all...
