The Epson Stylus CX3900 is an all-in-one inkjet printer that specializes in producing great photos. Its copy and scan functions are fairly basic, and its print speed tops out at 23 pages per minute. Its pigment-based Epson CX3900 printer ink produces very good images, however, and is relatively affordable, especially when using third-party supplies.
The unit lacks any faxing capabilities, but this won't matter to most home users. It can be connected to a computer running either Windows or Mac operating systems, and the included software tools are compatible with both platforms. The single USB is all users get for connection options, without the media card slots or flash drive port that are common in many competing models.
Where the CX3900 really shines is its print quality. The Stylus CX3900 printer ink is pigment-based, which can provide deeper blacks and more saturated colors. The DURABrite Ultra printer ink is also designed to last for up to 120 years.
The design of the machine is straightforward, but also pretty basic. It measures 6.8x16.9x13.6 inches, with a weight of 12.6 pounds. The control panel includes several buttons for copy and scan functions, but lacks a display screen, which can make it difficult to learn.
With four Epson CX3900 ink cartridges to replace, some user reviews include complaints about the cost of supplies. Each of the color Stylus CX3900 ink cartridges provides up to 355 pages, and the black supply provides up to 245 pages, so users might feel that they are replacing it often. For a more cost-effective solution, remanufactured Epson CX3900 ink is available from third-party sellers.
The Stylus CX3900 would be a good choice for the home users who wants sharp photos and needs to occasionally copy and scan. Without some of the extras like wireless support of media card slots, however, this model is far from the top of its class.
