Looking for an inexpensive photo printer so you can test the water? Check out Epson's Expression Premium Photo range! Stylish and compact, these versatile all-in-one models combine printing, scanning and copy facilities, but importantly, it’s easy to produce glossy photos too!

The XP-6000 offers a new compact design, fast printing speeds of 15.8 ppm (black) and 11.3 ppm (colour), CD/DVD printing, automatic two-sided printing, wireless Wi-Fi Direct, AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, a 2.4” LCD screen, a 100-sheet input first tray and 20-sheet input second tray and a 50-sheet output capacity.

However, the model you want to buy is the XP-8500. It offers all that the XP-6000 does with a 2.7” LCD screen and, critically, also offers a 6-colour printing solution for superior photographic quality. With speeds of 9.5 ppm (black) and 9 ppm (colour) and a yield of 500 (black) and 830 (colour) with XL sizes, the XP-8500 is a serious player in this market.

Epson claims that the Expression Premium XP-8500 will take all the fuss out of printing photos and can produce better-than-lab-quality photographs at home and on demand.

The Expression Premium Photo range uses Claria Premium inks, which are renowned for producing outstanding, glossy photos with sharp detail, deep blacks and rich, vibrant colours. The XP-6000’s five inks and XP-8500’s 6 inks can be individually replaced as and when a particular colour runs out, making it economical.

The Expression Premium Photo models’ connectivity provides even more freedom for users. There’s no need to be deskbound because Wi- Fi ensures it’s easy to print and scan from around the home and Wi-Fi Direct makes it possible to print without a wireless network.

The models are packed with user-friendly functions including a memory card slot to make it easy to print photos without a PC.

The Expression Premium Photo XP-6000 (RRP $179.00) and XP- 8500 (RRP $299.00) are available now from www.epson.com.au and all good Epson retailers across Australia.
