Epson Stylus SX445W Printer Review

Epson Stylus SX445W Printer Review

Sporting similar looks to the Photo PX730WD, this new Epson four colour printer has a printing resolution of up to 5760 x 1440 dpi. The front control panel containing the LCD screen elevates out from the front of the machine. PC free printing, scanning, and copying with the smart navigation touch screen display!

The Epson Stylus SX445 takes up less space on your desk; reportedly 39% less than previous models! Not to mention 25% less packaging due to the smaller size. Epson have obviously spent much time thinking about how to reduce the environmental impact of such devices.

The new printer features automatic Wi-Fi set-up when using with Windows 7, Vista, and Mac devices. You can also connect to your PC or Mac using a USB cable.

The A4 flat bed colour scanner has a resolution of 1200x2400dpi and has a CIS type sensor. It provides adequate quality for most home users but not for photographic enthusiasts.

Like many of the other current Epson models, this machine uses a four colour Ink system and T1281, T1282, T1283 and T1284 Fox cartridges. These are available for around £30 for the T1285 multi-pack set. Large capacity Apple Inks can also be used but are more expensive.

Update: 6 October 2011
Compatible and empty refillable cartridges are now available for use with the above cartridge numbers plus the larger capacity Apple T1291, T1292, T1293, T1294. The refillable cartridges contain auto reset chips (arc) that automatically reset back to full on an artificial cycle; however they do not reset by refilling them with Ink. Just like the original genuine Epson cartridges that do not have an Ink sensor inside the tank to measure the remaining liquid inside, you need to make sure there is always Ink in them. This is perfectly normal for refillable cartridges.

Update: 8 December 2011
If you have a blocked print head nozzle or head this does not mean that you have to scrap the printer! Cleaning cartridges usually have a 70% chance of clearing a blockage if used correctly. Head clean products are now available for this model.
