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

Not sure about this printer

 

I received it as a gift and it is not as easy to load as the R-300, it seems to operate when nothing is being printed. You do not look a gift horse in the mouth but I would not have purchased it
