Epson Expression Photo XP-750 – Print Speeds

Epson, in a break with its own tradition, has started to quote ISO print speeds which are a lot more realistic than its own test results. For the Expression Photo XP-750 it claims 9.5ppm for black pages and 9.0ppm for colour.

We got quite close to the black print speed, measuring 6.7ppm for our five-page text document and a slightly faster 8.0ppm on the 20-page long document. Draft print, which is light and uses a less well-formed font, gave 11.5ppm.

The black text and colour graphics print produced 5.7ppm, a bit slow given the specification, but fair in comparative terms, and a duplex print of 10, double-sided pages finished with a speed of 4.5 sides per minute. A single page, colour copy took 23s and 15 x 10cm photos took between 34s and 1:08, depending on source.

Epson Expression Photo XP-750 – Print Quality and Costs

Printed output from the machine is fair, though a bit fuzzy, on black text, good on colour print, though again showing some ink spread on colour copies, and sharp and well-defined on photos, always a strong point of Epson printers.

Cartridge prices for this Epson machine have dropped slightly since we tested its companion, the https://www.trustedreviews.com/epson-expression-photo-xp-850_Printer_review Expression Photo XP-850, which uses the same set, and we now get page costs of 3.0p for black and 9.5p for colour. This is a similar black page cost and slightly lower colour cost than from some of its competitors.

Should I buy an Epson Expression Photo XP-750?

In several ways this all-in-one is a better bet than its more expensive sibling, the https://www.trustedreviews.com/epson-expression-photo-xp-850_Printer_review Expression Photo XP-850. Although you lose the ADF and the fax facilities, at Internet prices it’s around £50 cheaper and takes up less room on the desk.

Its competitors from other manufacturers include the https://www.trustedreviews.com/hp-photosmart-7510_Printer_review HP Photosmart 7510 and the https://www.trustedreviews.com/canon-pixma-mg6350_Printer_review Canon PIXMA MG6350, both of which have their own foibles. This machine stands up well against these and is a bit quicker than the Canon machine printing colour.

Verdict

If you want a good printer for photos, CDs and printing from mobile devices, this machine has a lot to offer. It’s not as impressive on plain paper, but is still adequate and it comes out as a realistically priced device with a good feature set.
