The Epson Stylus CX4700 is a color inkjet printer, scanner, and copier in one, and it provides high-quality prints for a low price. Its maximum speed of 20 pages per minute is slightly misleading, as this only applies to Economy mode, though this also reduces the amount of Stylus CX4700 printer ink used for each page. It is a solid choice for home users, but probably a bit limited for the small office.
The CX4700 utilizes a very simple design, with a flatbed platen for copying and scanning, and a vertical paper tray near the rear. With only 120 pages of paper capacity, it certainly shouldn't be used for heavy duty printing, but it should be adequate for simple tasks in a home environment. The front panel includes memory card slots, but direct printing without a computer is difficult, as the machine does not include and LCD screen.
The copy function works with or without a computer connected, so it can function nicely as a standalone copy machine, and since it weighs 15 pounds (without the Stylus CX4700 printer ink supplies) it could be somewhat portable for this task. The included software can also help users restore old photos with its Color Restoration feature.
The Epson CX4700 ink cartridges are divided into individual colors of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. Each Stylus CX4700 toner cartridge is rated to provide up to 250 pages, and the DURABrite Ultra ink is pigment-based, and designed to last for up to 120 years under the right conditions. Since the cost per page can be a bit high, many users might want to opt for remanufactured Epson CX4700 ink instead of OEM versions.
The Epson CX4700 is a solid all-in-one inkjet that covers the major features and functions, but doesn't include a lot of extras. Buyers can find models with a lot more features, such as wireless support, for just a bit more.
