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...

I think this printer is absolutely rubbish! Sorry. I've had it for months and every time I want to print one page it takes hours. Can't believe it. As someone else has mentioned, the trays are very fiddly and cheap and you have to keep pulling them in...

Prints Well, but has Flaws


Pros The printing looks very good. This printer seems to be fairly stingy with the ink. I've only replaced a black cartridge so far. It seems that you can continue to print when only one cartridge is out of ink. I struggled to set up the wireless...
