The Epson Stylus CX4900 is a great value for its low price, as this all-in-one inkjet can print, scan, and copy. It also adds in the features that previous models lacked, such as media card slots, while still providing the same high-quality photo output and an improved speed of up to 27 pages per minute. The capacity of Stylus CX4900 printer ink supplies might be a little small for some buyers, however.
Unlike similar models such as the CX3900, the CX4900 gives users more photo-centric options to save time. It includes an array of media card slots for printing from digital cameras, and even a PictBridge port for direct connection. With the PhotoEnhance feature, the unit can even make corrections to photos without a computer.
The machine connects via USB port, and includes an array of software to help users get the most of its different functions. The Scan Assist software, for example, helps users make better scans, and even organize and share them. The Creativity Suite helps users make a variety of creative projects like greeting cards or flyers.
The system uses four separate Epson CX4900 ink cartridges and can reach an interpolated resolution of up to 5760x1440 dpi. This means better photo quality than many inkjet models in its class, though others might offer more features.
One of the downsides of the unit is that Stylus CX4900 ink cartridges have fairly small capacities. The single black Epson CX4900 ink supply provides only 245 pages maximum, with each color supply providing up to 355 pages. This means users may be replacing Epson CX4900 printer ink more often than they would like, especially if they do a lot of full-color printing.
The Epson CX4900 stands out with some of the best image quality in its class, and the extra photo features help to boost its appeal. If the lack of network sharing isn't a deal breaker, many home users will be quite pleased with it.
