FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Epson C11CD31201 Expression Premium XP-610 Wireless Color Photo Printer with Scanner and Copier

You have to temper your amazement over all the features in a reasonably priced printer with the fact that the printer manufacturers continue to operate on the razor/razor blade premise of sales.   Give away the razor, soak them on the blades or in this case, price the printer (for it's features) reasonably and soak them for the supposedly less expensive ink cartridges. 

The printer set up easily with the pictograph easy start guide.  Wireless connection worked well.   Setting up scan and remote print was less stellar.  I got the Windows 8 message of "Program Compatibility Assistant"  popping up a couple of times so I am not sure that it all installed ok.  The email/remote print tested out ok.  

The instructions are rudimentary at best.  The QR code for Epson Connect worked on my smart phone but not on my tablet.   I was able to print from my tablet using email print.  I got the printer to print a good quality photo and to do duplexing. (two sided printing)  The photo was not the best photo quality that I have seen in inkjets.  It is good but not superior than other printers I have. 

The paper cassettes are flimsy and easily push too far into the printer.  It seems like the printer has a lot of features but it remains to be seen if it will hold up.   Price:$99.99

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
