Epson Expression XP-30 review – page 2
OK, I mustn’t forget that this is an entry level printer aimed at the casual home user and student and cost’s about the same price as a couple of ink cartridges for a top of the range A3 printer. So for this printer test I am going to print some holiday snaps taken with a compact digital camera and a text document or two.
The prints were all made using the Printer Manages colour settings, nothing has been changed other than cropping to fit the media. For this part of the test I have used Epson 5×7 Premium Glossy Photo Paper.
Looking at the prints and comparing them to the on-screen version they look superb, I would never have believed that they were produced on a four ink printer that cost’s less than £40. These prints could be framed or stuck in any album and enjoyed for many years. The colours are vibrant, perhaps a little too much colour but no more so than the average holiday postcard.
