      This is a review for the Epson Expression XP-640 that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review I received the printer by Fed-Ex and the box was in perfect condition. While easy to open, the printer came packaged with two pieces of Styrofoam, one on each side, so snug that I had to ask another person to hold on to the box while I was pulling the printer out. Meaning, the usual way of placing the box upside-down on a safe surface to allow the device slide down with the help of gravity, didn't work. Inside the box were: The printer, a power cable without a separated AC adapter (that hard to place black box) as it is built into the printer, a CD including drivers and software but unfortunately NOT the user manual, (which I had the option to download as a PDF file from the printer software). While it did not include an USB cable to connect to a computer, the printer came with Wi-Fi connectivity so the cable is unnecessary if you have Wi-Fi in your place. BUT if you don't, make sure you save your previous printer USB cable. It came with 5 sheets (letter size) of each of the following: Premium Glossy Photo Paper, Heavyweight Matte Paper, Premium Semigloss Photo Paper and Borderless Glossy Photo Paper (5x6 in). And, of course, it came with ink: 3 color cartridges (Cyan, Magenta and Yellow) a larger in size black one and, a pleasant surprise of another black cartridge labeled "Photo Black" that I believe it could be a gray color to do high quality Black & White prints. The ink compartment is very easy to access by just lifting the top portion of the device (scanning portion) and after it was in place and I turned it on for the first time, it took it seven minutes to be ready. To set up the Wi-Fi was a breeze, except when I had to enter the Wi-Fi password: since the LCD display is not touchable, I had to use the Up, Down, Left and Right" buttons on the panel to enter each character and oh boy did I suffer... BUT, the good news is that this suffering was unnecessarily inflicted since the XP-640 comes with the option of pressing the button in your router (WPS) to connect without the need of entering the password manually. Installing the software on my desktop computer (running Windows 7) was very easy too. It offered me to download a new installer and since I knew this would take extra time, I chose not to. This proved to be the wrong decision because a minute later, when I was trying to scan a page, the printer was having issues communicating with the computer and I think it was because I have another Epson scanner connected, that while on a different USB port, it was causing conflicts. So I ran the update on the software and it downloaded newer versions for most of the components including the scanning module and a new firmware for the device. This was pretty smooth too and it was very easy to do since it was telling me what to do for each step. This whole thing took about 5 minutes. After that, the scanning software asked me to choose from what device I wanted to scan from, which was not to easy to decide as, instead of a Model name, it was showing MAC addresses... not cool. I unplugged my other scanner and after refreshing the window still was showing me the same, so I picked the first one and it happened to be the right one. NOTE: this will ONLY happen to you if you have another Epson multi-function or scanner plugged into the SAME computer. Scanning a letter size page with text rendered a PDF with a missing inch at the bottom, since I placed the page aligned at the left side of the scanning bed instead of the right side... once fixed, it was OK. There is a mark on the scanning bed saying where to position the page and what's the maximum length (A4 in this case) but because they are made out of the same black plastic, they are hard to see. The same goes for many of the marks around the printer and inside the trays. I placed four pictures in the scanning glass and it was able to scan them to four different files. I chose 300 DPI and the quality was very good and it was quick too. I did notice a bit of cropping in some of the images and I will have to further look into it to determine if it is a fault or a miss-configuration. Trying to print a test page was pretty hard because I could not find the output tray!!! Turns out, this printer has several parts that look like trays: It has two real trays labeled "Cassette 1" and "Cassette 2", a bottom "tray-accessory" to print directly on printable CDs and a top tray hidden behind the liftable control panel housing the LCD screen, that is also used for printing the CDs by inserting the accessory from the bottom on it's top. This top tray happens to be the... OUTPUT TRAY! The printer WILL tell you to open the output tray when you are printing and will show you even how to do it, but still, I found it hard to understand because I did not expect it to be behind the control panel. NOTE: The Cassette 1 can be pushed accidentally all the way in, in a way to make it very hard to take back out. If this happens, all you have to do is to remove Cassette 2 and get your hand inside and grab that fleetly tray back outside. To print border-less pictures, I had to use Cassette 1 and it was very simple to do to and the quality is JUST PERFECT! I noticed a bit of a resizing on the end result that is barely noticeable and it might be part of the method to provide a border-less result. IMPRESSIVE: just like the quality I get at Costco or Fuji Labs. I was able to print on a printable DVD using the accessory tray that has to be inserted on top of the "closed" output tray and it took me a couple of attempts for the printer to be happy with my blank CD. I think that the holder for the CD could be a bit stronger as it was having problems staying in place. The good thing is that the printer knew at all times what was going on and led me each step in order to have it work. The result? A perfectly printed CD (I used Verbatim InkJet Printable) that while it was not border-less, the quality was par with professionally printed ones. I am very happy indeed. I have still to print some black and whites or sepia images from Photoshop and will update this review when done, as I am eager to see what else this little wizard is capable of doing. All and all, for a printer in the order of $100 or less, I am VERY pleased. :D

      Crisp Photo, and Precise Instructions

      Posted
      Rabecca

      Precise Instructions and a Crisp Photo. *** Disclaimer : This is a review for the Epson Expression XP-640 that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. *** First and foremost, I want to disclose that I am typically skeptical of "home photo printers", as, in the past, I have been disappointed with their quality and speed of printing... Not to mention the clunkiness of initial setup. I am pleased to report that my fears and wariness were unjustified here. The images turn out crisp and clean... Even better than when I take my sd cards to Target or Walmart (since let's face it, I'm taking the majority of my photos using my cell phone). Now, let's tackle the instructions... As I know that, at least for me, that will likely be a deal breaker, if they are not clear and precise on what needs to be done. It can't have all pictures, or all written instructions, as there are just some things that you camt describe without a picture. They were succinct in their instruction, showcasing where and how to remove all the safety tabs, how to insert each ink cartridge, and how to set up for the first time. I had experienced ZERO frustration with setup, due to the effectiveness of the instruction manual. For that alone I give the rating of 5 out of 5 stars. I'm a nerd, and instructions are important to me. If they are not as important for you, let's move on. I love.... And I repeat, LOVE the fact that you DO NOT need to attach to your computer to use. I have a laptop, and like all laptops they become obsolete relatively quickly... The point to where I don't want to turn it on every time I wish to print a photo or scan some documents. The convenient SD card slot, or wireless with cellphones and tablets, is a huge plus for me and my lifestyle. I also love how it tells you what ink cartridges you need and where you can purchase refills. A big plus! It was relatively easy to sync via wi-fi (had to try several times before I got the pairing right). I blame some of that on user error since I have so many things available through wifi and Bluetooth already on my devices. I'm sure if you didn't have as many as I do, that you would have an easier time. Mildly frustrating, but once set up, it works without problems. Now, one of the features is NOT for me, which is burning CD labels. I tested it out just to see how it would work for someone in the market for this feature, and it worked well. It was not off center (as I had experienced with other products in my youth), and the picture was still as crisp as with the photos themselves. I also like the different feeds for paper... So if you want to switch between gloss and matte, you can. :-) It is also great for printing off spreadsheets for work, or fliers for personal or business needs. Those features seem pretty standard these days, so I won't spend a lot of time in detail there. But the words are crisp and can print out documents relatively quickly. Obviously, color text printing takes longer, but is still relatively quick (about 25 seconds or so a page at most). And, the color does not bleed when printing multiple pages. Important for some. Lastly, the scanner. The scanner captures a true image, which made sending documents a breeze. Not a ton one can say there, but definately feels on the higher end of images. All in all, this is the best combo printer to date for home that I have used. I am definately recommending this to friends and family, and have already showcased it to the neighbor who is in the market for a new printer for her small business. The design is sleek and modern, but not overly clunky, while being easy to store when not in use. Final verdict : LOVE IT!!!

      Affordable all-in-one with stunning photo quality

      Posted
      Fredou

      It has been more than 10 years since I left the inkjet printing world. There was many disadvantage in comparison with the laser printing. A decade later, I decided to give one more try with the new Epson all-in-one XP-640 printer. I must say that I’m very pleased with that printer as it’s the perfect home printing device. It can do high-quality photos, scan, copy and print in colour, even on printable CDs with the included tray. First, let’s talk about the installation. I would say it’s not the most friendly setup process I had with a printer, but if you follow the “Start here” guide carefully, it will be pretty easy. I normally don’t read the quick starter guide when I’m buying products, but I’m glad I did with this printer and I can’t highly enough suggest you follow all the steps in the proper order. Setup process will take quite some time (at least 10 minutes) as it must do some alignments and other first-time stuff. However, you do it only once and then you will have a properly set printer that will give you excellent print quality every time. Please note that there is no USB cable included with this printer. This is not much of a problem as you can always configure the printer as a Wi-Fi printer, which is what I did. So no USB cable was needed for me. Not only I will be able to print with all my devices on the network, but also I don’t need to have the printer next to the computer. Great! I like that this printer has two trays. In the first cassette I have all my 4x6 glossy photo paper, and in the second one I have normal paper for printing. I wish it could have a bigger tray, but still, I do prefer two small trays, than a bigger one. It’s important that you specify on the printer which paper you are using after inserting the paper. Else, it might not print the best quality. This is what happened to me when I first tried to print a photo. It came out so dark, and I was wondering why. After I had set the proper paper setting that matched the glossy photo paper I was using, the photo printed out perfectly with the glossy look as it would be in a photo lab. Super! I never expected such stunning high-quality photo printing on an affordable inkjet printer. This printer does use some special ink that protect the photo against smudges, scratches and water. I gave a small test by dropping few water droplets on a photo, I carefully wiped it and the photo still looked good after it dried. Fantastic! However, this is only when using photo paper as water is still not the best friend of the basic plain inkjet paper. Talking about ink, this printer uses five individual cartridges, which is great as you can replace them separately. What I like about this printer is that it can be used as both, a standalone unit and with a computer. While it can work on a computer without installing any drivers, you must install them if you want to fully enjoy the device. Not only it will install useful Epson applications for scanning, printing on CD and more, it will also install the printer presets for printing. These are perfect and very useful for printing quickly documents and photos. As a standalone device, it can do a lot of things. You can copy documents, photos, CDs covers, printing photos from USB/SD cards, as well as scanning and more. It can even scan directly to cloud services, such as Google Drive, One Drive, Dropbox and few others. However, you need to register an account on Epson Connect Service prior activating this feature. Epson Connect Service can also open your printer to the whole Internet world if you want it. It really worth creating an account and have a look at the new possibilities of the printer. After selecting this option from the printer menu, it will print instruction on how to proceed. It’s really not that hard. While you can do a lot without even using a computer with this all-in-one unit, I would still recommend using the Epson computer applications as they are giving more flexibility and options. One cool extra feature of this device is when you connect a SD card or USB flash drive in the printer, you can set it to be fully accessible from any computer in your network. Pretty cool! Regarding the printing side of this all-in-one device, I find the speed is alright for an inkjet printer with some cool features like borderless and full duplex (can print on both sides of the page) printing. Definitely, I recommend this all-in-one colour printer. It’s affordable, does work with every device and does print stunning photo-lab quality pictures. The only thing I don’t know yet is how fast the ink will run out. This is a review for the Epson Expression XP-640 that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

      Fantastic prints at home

      This came with a CD, Instructions (not really needed), no USB, Power Cord, Printer, Ink, Sample Media Pack that included Matte paper/Gloss photo paper/Semi Gloss photo paper and premium gloss photo paper. Really pleased that this included this nice little Media Pack because my last Epson (still have) did not include this and it is the XP-405 edition. This printer is fast and also provides the quiet mode as well as the option to make the ink lighter so you are not wasting so much ink on printing. I choose to use greyscale a lot to save money vs printing in color all the time. You do not have any paper sticking out from the top of this printer anymore, simply pull out the tray, insert the paper and you feel like you have an office all in one printer, so this is perfect for not just home users but if you have a home based business this is perfect for you too. I love the individual inks because when a color runs out and you are low on funds, you can still print in black. Cartridges are so simple to take out and snap back into place that this can be done in a matter of 2 minutes for the complete process. I found the ink to be about $20 with most Amazon merchants (non-name brand) and they work really well in my other printer that is identical to this one just different model. You can print lables onto a CD from this printer, quiet mode makes it great when you do not want to be very loud when printing, this is very large in size so make sure you clear off enough space and it weighs about 20lbs and has a tendency to jiggle a little when in use so it must have a sturdy surface to sit on. I had a issue with IOS on this not printing anything (did not need Epson App because that is useless and will not allow me to print anything from iPad Pro) but I got it to finally print with some issues still remaining. My issues with IOS printing is it tells me I am using the wrong size paper and I have to hit ok for it to continue to print each page. I do not have the wrong size paper and this is very frustrating. I did do the update with no resolution to this problem so that needs to be fixed. The setup was easy on the laptop (Windows) and my iPad Pro as well as iPhone 6Plus. I love everything about this printer and Highly recommend Epson brand and have for years because they are made to last, great quality, setup is simple as 1-2-3 and takes about 8-10 minutes. I received this product mentioned above for free. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising

      Small and quick

      Posted
      Kelsinaz2

      This is a review for the Epson Expression XP-640 that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. The printer is small, lightweight, and does not take up much desk space. You can set it up as either wireless or USB. The control panel is located on the front and rotates up about 45 degrees making it easier to see when standing over the printer. It has two paper trays, which are a bit difficult to access. There’s also a tray at the bottom for printing to CDs. The output tray is very inconvenient. At first I couldn’t even find it. It does not automatically open when you start to print and the print job will not start until it’s pulled out. The unit also includes a built in USB and memory card reader. Setup allows the option of using Wireless or USB. I like that they have fit so many features in such a compact unit, but it would be nice if there were buttons or some easier way to access the trays, especially the paper output tray. The included setup CD automatically installs the printer divers along with optional scanner utility, CD Print, and photo scan software modules. Everything installed easily on my Windows 10 system. The wireless setup was a bit cumbersome mainly due to my not being able to find a “delete” option on the control panel while typing in a very long modem password. It took quite a bit of guesswork to figure it out. I’d prefer a router pairing option that eliminates password entry in the first place. I will say that the software found my wireless connection easily while following the screen navigation during setup. I did get an error message about the current wireless channel being incompatible, but ignored it and found everything still functioned fine. There appears to be a problem with the update utility because after installation it repeatedly tries to install the same update on subsequent scans. It also installed two Epson software drivers on my system – one for wireless and another for USB. I find that annoying because it adds two printer icons to my lower task tray. I also have two Epson directories in my Software Apps. One contains the setup utility, manual, and scan utility. The other contains the CD and photo print utilities. I’d much prefer a single print interface with options for each of these utilities. Print quality is very good. The colors are vibrant and photos are sharp Print speed is also impressive. I can print standard 30 page reports with accompanying photos in standard quality at least 30% faster than my current Canon business unit. I print a lot of work related photos that are saved to CDs and love the idea of printing labels directly to the CD instead of messing around with CD label software. There is no pass-through on the back, but standard Avery address labels and photo paper fed through the main tray without jamming. The double-sided printing feature is great and gives you the option of flipping it on the long or short edge of the paper, either automatically or manually. The flatbed scanner portion works well, but I’d prefer buttons on the printer in lieu of selecting the scan feature via the control panel, which is cumbersome. Selecting to scan via the computer software option was easier There is no document feeder, which is somewhat disappointing. Current versions of Dropbox, Google Docs, and Microsoft One Drive were discovered during setup when I opted to use the cloud print feature. I use the Epson Connect and Mopria Print Apps on my Android phone and tablet. Printing worked fine with all of them. Overall I think it’s a great little printer. It lacks a few of the bells and whistles of a true business class printer, but handles pretty much any photo printing need with ease. I love the small size, print speed, and ability to print from my cell phone. The trays take a little getting used to and the software could be more integrated, but over-all I’m very happy with it.

      Pleasantly surprised

      Posted
      srbeusk

      To preface: This is a review for the Epson Expression XP-640 that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review. To sum up my experience with this printer: I love it. A lot. It is compact, easy to set up, easy to use, prints nicely, basically "idiot-proof" for lack of a better term. Straight out of the box I noticed how small this printer is. I'm a homeschooling mom of four in a three bedroom mobile home. There isn't a huge amount of space available, and this printer fits nicely in the schoolroom. The wireless printing is a huge plus so that I can put the printer wherever it fits, without having to plan it around the computers I have placed on both sides of the schoolroom. Set up was surprisingly easy. I'm fairly technologically inept, and usually end up defaulting to having my husband set things up for me, but for the purposes of this review, I set up and ran the printer 100% on my own. The instructions are very straight forward and easy to follow. It seemed overwhelming straight out of the box, but one I got my adhd brain to calm down I realized it was actually very simple. I was a bit concerned about the number of ink cartridges, because ink costs are a big factor in printer quality, but I checked them out online and they are actually extremely reasonably priced, and you only have to purchase the ink that runs out, rather than replacing them all at once. I have a macbook as our main school computer so I installed the software per the directions and there were no complications outside of my internet access acting up. Even with my lack of technical skill, I was able to successfully install and run the program. Now; this printer is by no means a fast set up. It took me 30 minutes to an hour from start to finish. Part of that was my lack of knowledge so I was very thorough with my reading, but part of it was simply the machine. It takes a couple minutes to fire up the first time, 7 minutes to set up the ink cartridges after you install them, several minutes to download the necessary software. And in all fairness it took me a couple minutes to figure out the cassettes. Turns out those are the trays the paper goes in, and there are dedicated trays to the sizes. Hooking it up to my iPhone to print was instant and extremely easy. I just selected the photo on my phone and hit print. That's an exciting prospect for me! I will definitely invest in a large amount of photo paper now. As for printing: I have no complaints about the quality. I don't have much to compare to, as I don't often have pictures professionally printed, but I'll do my best to review here. I printed pictures from my phone, from Facebook, and straight from an SD card. I really like the quality of the details, even when blowing up a small cellphone picture into an 8x11 photo. The colors came out wonderfully, and there wasn't any noticeable pixelation or printer blur. It prints quickly as well. Much faster than the printer I'm used to using. The most involved printing was from the sd card, simply for the ability to do some minor editing on the printer itself. I was able to crop the picture, edit out red-eye, change contrast etc, and even change to sepia or greyscale. It took me a minute or so to figure out all the buttons there, but once I realized the onscreen prompts told me exactly what to do, I had no more issues. This printer is truly fool proof. It has alerts about the paper and the connection and the ink and it says everything in plain english rather than just having to guess what a certain flashing light means. Some random things I really like about this printer: ~The paper loads inside the printer, rather than on an external flap. That saves space, which as I mentioned before, is huge to me. ~There are designated trays and guides for the different paper sizes. ~The instructions, both on paper and on screen, are in plain english and easy to follow. ~The quality of photos is wonderful. ~The ink is affordable. ~It's overall very easy to use. Some of my dislikes (and there aren't many): ~It's surprisingly heavy. I don't foresee moving it from it's place anytime soon. I have certain health issues that prevent me from lifting much and this was a bit of a stretch for me. ~The Cassettes are a bit confusing at first. I couldn't figure out how to pull them out, which was which, where the out tray was, etc. But once I got it straightened out, the issues no longer existed. In summation: I am super excited I was selected to try this printer out. I love the convenience and the ease of use. It will be supremely helpful with schooling, and saving me time and money with being able to print high quality photos at home rather than having to order them. I can tell there are still so many things I have yet to play with (like the cd printer) but for the purposes I'll be using it for the most, it's pretty near perfect. And while I received my unit for free, after looking at the price I would enthusiastically say that the price is well worth it for the quality and upkeep costs (ink).

      Epson does it again, making life easier

      This is the second Epson that printer I have used. When I got the first one I was a bit reluctant because I had the Kodak printer that I so loved. To my surprise the Epson became my new favorite brand printer. This was very easy to set up. The Epson XP-640 doesn't hold much paper - I'd say no more than 50 sheets. Its a trade off given the printer's size, and I am fine with that. In my experience the larger paper trays seem to contribute to miss feeds anyway. The trays seem a bit flimsy and I'm never sure I've pulled them far enough out as I prepare to print, or far enough in again as I close the printer up after a print job. I find myself being overly careful with the tray as a result. The buttons on the front screen are intuitive. The printer turns on and readies itself in 10-15 seconds. There is a brief delay as the print job is sent wirelessly to the printer - generally about 20 seconds, but the actual printing process is very fast. Again, an average one-sided print takes about 15 seconds. The automatic 2-sided printing is an added bonus, and I have yet to encounter a paper jam after approximately 100 pages printed to date. The quality of the regular print jobs (reports, school projects etc) has been outstanding. The text is crisp and sharp, and the image prints on regular A4 paper have been similarly sharp without the 'soggy' look I've experienced with older printers. Prints on photo paper (Kodak soft gloss 4x6) were outstanding and deserving of a frame. The LCD screen gives you a preview of the photos you are about to print from a USB drive or SD card, which certainly helps ensure the correct image is selected. Hands down I have to say I'm in love with this printer!

      I was so excited to receive this Small-in-One All-in-One Printer from Epson. We have another Epson that is the fast kind that only prints in black so you know we only print out paperwork on it. Having this new printer opens up my world to a bunch of new possibilities! My son couldn't wait for me to get it set up so he could make a copy of his hand....kids! Setting this Small-in-One Printer was a snap! You can set it up on the network by either plugging it into a computer on the network or by using the wi-fi settings built into the printer. There is a disc that comes with the printer to install different software (faxing, copying, scanning, ect) that was easy to install. After I got everything installed it asked to do updates. It was simple to do those updates and I haven't had an issue since. After you get everything going and set up, the printing is easy. I told my son he could be the first one to actually use the printer so I let him scan his hand. He was so excited and it didn't take long at all to print out that page, even with all the black background from not being able to close the top. After he had his fun with his hand, he was excited that he could actually connect his phone and print off pictures. I let him print off 2 pictures because I don't have much picture paper. It was so easy to do from his phone. Another feature that's easy to use on this printer is the SD card slot. I love that you can take pictures on a regular camera and view and print them right from the printer. If I were a scrapbooker this would be the perfect printer. The last thing that's my favorite on this printer is the BIG command screen. It moves up and down so that you can see it easier and it has big icons for those of us that are going blind. This is a review for the Epson Expression XP-640 that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

      I would recommend this to a friend
