Affordable & Compact: Epson Expression Home XP-410 Small-in-One All-in-One Printer
Space is a commodity these days. Products that can fit more features into a smaller package are what most of us are looking for when shopping for electronics. In addition to that – wires – nobody likes having them tangled up under the desk or hanging down the wall, they are becoming outdated and unneeded in many electronics. Compact and wireless is the way to go when it comes to electronics – this includes printers.
The Epson Expression Home XP-410 Small-in-One All-in-One Printer measures only 15.4″ x 11.8″ x 5.7″, and it packs in a ton of features. The XP-410 can print, copy and scan all your documents and photos from its small and compact package. Plus, it can print from your PC, laptop, smartphone, or tablet wirelessly! It’s compatible with Apple’s AirPrint and Google Cloud Print, so your guaranteed to have it work with whatever modern device you’re using.
Before I get into my assessment of the XP-410, have a look at its key features:
- ISO Print Speeds of 8.7 ppm (black) and 4.5 ppm (color).
- 2.5″ LCD screen to preview, edit, and print photos directly from the printer.
- Epson Connect (print from mobile devices like iPhone & iPad)
- Individual Ink Cartridges
- Borderless photo printing without a PC
The XP-410 was super easy to setup. You don’t even need a computer to use the printer, so setup is basically plugging it in and setting up the wireless connection. With the Epson XP-410, you have 2 different wireless setups to choose from – WiFi Infrastructure mode or WiFi Direct Mode.
WiFi Infrastructure Mode connects the printer to your wired or wireless network, so you can print to it with other devices connected to the network.
WiFi Direct Mode turns the printer into an access point for your device, or uses a peer-to-peer connection, which connects the printer with another device directly (outside the network).
These different connection options make the Epson XP-410 a great fit for most people. The setup process for WiFi is pretty straightforward. Similar to the WiFi setup of any other wireless device you might have. I was impressed, however, by the easy to follow User’s Guide for the XP-410. If you run into any snags, or aren’t that computer/electronic savvy, the User’s Guide provides great step-by-step comprehensive instructions.
Print Quality on the Epson Expression Home XP-410 Small-in-One All-in-One Printer is rather exceptional. Photos came out bright, crisp, and were accurately colorful. Documents printed accurately and at a decent speed (8.7 ppm (black) and 4.5 ppm (color)). It’s a home printer, and its purpose is not productivity, so the print speeds fit my needs well.
Air Print and Google Cloud Print. Both of these features worked flawlessly for me. Plus, with Epson Connect, you have other options as well. Epson Email Print allows you to create a unique email address for the printer. When you send an email to that email address, the XP-410 will automatically print the contents of that email. In addition to that, Epson iPrint is an app for Apple devices that allow you to send and receive data from your Epson printer. From the iPrint app, you can access your saved iPhone photos and send them for printing, access your saved documents and photos from online storage apps like Dropbox, and even scan using your phone.
Overall, the Epson Expression Home XP-410 Small-in-One All-in-One Printer exceeded my expectations. You cant beat the flexibility and cost savings you get with being able to change each separate color ink cartridge. Plus, the connection options can’t be beat. The XP-410 can print from almost anything! Lastly, is price. The Epson Expression Home XP-410 Small-in-One All-in-One Printer only costs $69.99! A printer with these capabilities and versatility could easily demand $100 or more. If you’re looking for a great home printer for a great price, look no further than the XP-410.
