The Epson Stylus Color 400 is an inkjet printer built for home office users. When it comes to quality, it stays close to the competition. Resolutions as high as 720x720 dpi are possible, which should make text documents look flawless. Text will be both sharp and professional. Transparencies, inkjet paper, glossy film, glossy paper and cards can all be supported, and even envelopes are compatible with this machine. Weighing only 11.5 pounds, buyers will be able to move this inkjet around as desired, and the footprint it makes is minimal at only 16.9x9.1x6.1 inches.
Inside there are two Epson 400 ink cartridges. One is filled with black printer ink, while the other stores cyan, yellow and magenta in one tank. The black Stylus Color 400 ink will last buyers about 370 pages before needing replaced, and the color ink should last 300 pages. These yields should last buyers quite awhile.
Though the cost per page for the Epson 400 ink may seem a little steep, buyers should note that new compatible versions of the printer ink are available from third party vendors. Though these Stylus Color 400 ink cartridges will cost buyers about a fifth of the price, don't think that the price difference means there will be a difference in quality. The new compatible Epson 400 ink tanks are guaranteed to work just as good as the OEM versions, meaning buyers can save a good amount of money every year just by using compatible products.
Though it looks like a top-notch machine, buyers may find that its slow speeds are a burden. When printing in black-and-white, the quickest it can produce documents is a slow 4 pages per minute. Color documents print out even slower at only 3 pages per minute. With speeds like this, the 400 is best suited in home environments that print rarely.
