There’s a 20-sheet ADF (auto-document feeder) but it does not do dual-sided printing. The standard paper tray holds up to 100 sheets of paper at a time. You can use different types of envelopes and photo paper, as well.

Setting up the Pixma is rather effortless. The included software worked great out of the box and offers some small adjustments to be made during installation.

Depending on how much color and resolution is set for each print-out, you can print between 14 and 22 PPM. This is a bit on the low end, but at least prints look nice.

Paper sizes supported by the Envy 5660 are letter, legal, 4×6, 5×7, and 8×10-inch number 10 envelopes.

Commands are entered via an LCD color touchscreen. It’s easy and straightforward to operate, making selections and commands a breeze.

  • Instant-dry prints
  • Wireless printing
  • Uses ink quickly
  • Overpriced
  • Inconsistent scanner
  • Low-quality screen
check price

Epson’s Expression Home XP-330 has nice connectivity and plenty of features. You can mobile-print a variety of ways and there’s even direct-print support for when you’re away from your printer.

Commands and selections are made via a small, color LCD screen. This screen also displays a preview of your printing. It’s not the best quality and it’s quite tiny, but it gets the job done.

Initial setup and installation is a bit of a chore. You don’t get the ease of use like other more competent models.

The printed photos look fine, and ink dries instantly as they print. You can pick them up right away without fear of smudging.

Keep in mind that you have to use official Epson cartridges with this printer. Third-party brands won’t work. Epson advises against using refurbished ones, as well.

Overall, the Expression home XP-330 is a bit of a drag. Sure, images look ok – and for some, that’s all that matters – but operation and functionality is more aggravating than helpful. Wireless printing works ok, which is a nice feature to have on any printer.

Features

  • 100-sheet capacity
  • 4.5 to 9 PPM
  • 1.44-inch LCD screen
  • Wireless printing
  • Instant-dry prints

All-In-One Printer Buyer’s Guide

All-in-one printers, otherwise known as multifunction printers, bring you more than just printing. They are versatile machines that can also copy, scan, and fax.

There is a huge variety of AIO printers on the market, and finding the right one can become a daunting task. Before you can make a smart purchase, you need to know a couple of facts about AIO printers.

You don’t have to waste your spare time doing the research, because we have done it for you!

Should I Buy an Inkjet or a Laser AIO Printer?

The answer depends on your expectations, and how you will be using your new AIO printer.

You should know that inkjet printers offer the fullest range of color printing. If you want to print photos, then an inkjet AIO printer is a good idea. Inkjet replacement cartridges are less expensive than the ones for laser printers. Inkjet AIO printers tend to be smaller than laser printers. So, if your home or office are lacking space, an inkjet printer could be a good option.

Laser AIO printers are usually more expensive than inkjet printers. But, they offer a high quality of print with better consistency. Laser printers have a better print-out time than inkjet printers. Laser printers are known for being quiet, but they take up more space than inkjet printers. If you focus on printing text, then a laser AIO printer is a good choice. Laser printers have a sharp text and a lower per-page cost. So, if you need an AIO printer for your office, then a laser printer is a smart choice.

Do I Need Duplex Printing?

Duplex printing gives you the power to print on both sides of a sheet of paper. Obviously, duplex printing has many uses, but most of them are suited for an office.

If you intend to purchase an AIO printer for your home, then consider whether duplex printing is important. Yes, it does save a lot of time, but you need to figure out whether it is worth the extra cost.

Features to Consider

Now that you are acquainted with the types of AIO printers, you need to know what to look for. The features below are not a complete necessity, but it is wise to look for them in your new all-in-one printer.

  • Printing resolution: Cheap inkjet printers offer 600×600 DPI of resolution for black and white print. Better units produce a 1200×1200 DPI resolution. Contrarily, cheap laser printers offer black and white printing at 1200×1200 DPI. On the other hand, inkjet printers produce color prints at 4800×1200 DPI, while the laser printers do it at a 1200×600 DPI resolution. The numbers can be misleading, so it is wise to get a print sample if possible. Bear in mind that you should avoid printers with printing resolutions lower than the ones we mentioned.
  • Cost per page: Printing will cost you money over time. You will have to replace ink cartridges or a toner, and the costs will add up. Always check out the reviews, which should inform you about the cost per page.
  • Printing speed: You should know that basic laser and inkjet printers have a speed of 20-30 pages per minute. Those numbers are related to printing black and white pages. When it comes to printing color, the speeds aren’t great, but that’s normal. Bear in mind that laser printers print color faster than inkjet printers. In any case, compare the speeds of different AIO printers, and your decision will come easily.
  • Print volume: Most of the manufacturers will tell you how many pages their device can print per month. The number tells you how many pages can you print before you need to replace the cartridge. Good models will allow you to print thousands of pages per month, while the best ones offer more than 10,000 pages printed per month.
  • Wireless connection: While most, if not all, of the printers offer wired Ethernet connectivity, the best ones come with Wi-Fi connectivity. Using wireless devices to print is easy and convenient. So, if you want comfortable printing, look for an all in one printer with a wireless connection. If you need more features, look for a printer with Wi-Fi Direct, and dedicated apps for your smartphone.
  • Scan features: If you want to use the scanning features of an all in one printer, then you need a high-resolution scanner. Good AIO printers offer 24 bits of depth and a 600×1200 DPI scan resolution. Never go under those numbers! Know that the higher the bits and resolution, the higher the quality of your scans will be.
  • Capacity: Some AIO printers allow you to hold only 100 sheets of paper in the tray, which isn’t bad. But, if you require more, then look for a unit that offers a 250-sheet tray, or more.
