The Epson Expression Premium XP-610 Small-in-One is a very aptly named inkjet device, considering it takes up only slightly more space than a photo printer, but includes copying and scanning capabilities as well. With ISO speeds of 13 pages per minute for black and 10 pages per minute for color, it is fast for the price. The cost of Epson XP-610 printer ink supplies can start to add up, however, so it is best used or light-duty printing.
Given the low price of the XP-610, buyers might not expect features like a 2.5-inch LCD and touch-sensitive control panel, but these are both highlights of its design. With multiple ways to get photos into the machine, users can preview their images, make edits, and print without the need for a PC at all. A PictBridge port is included for connecting a digital camera, and the Epson Connect app makes it easy to print wirelessly from mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones. It also supports Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print services.
With a weight of only 21.5 pounds that includes the Expression Premium XP-610 printer ink supplies, the unit really lives up to its "Small-in-One" designation. It measures 5.4x15.4x19.8 inches, taking up very little room on a desktop surface, so it is perfect for home use. The input paper capacity of 100 sheets might be a bit smaller than some users would like, but it can handle a wide variety of media, including iron-on transfers, semi-gloss photo paper and even printable CDs and DVDs.
The system uses five separate Epson XP-610 ink cartridges, including a "pigment black" supply that provides deeper blacks. Prices for Epson XP-610 ink are reasonable, but the estimated page yields are a bit lower than competing models. Each color supply provides just 300 pages, while the two black Expression Premium XP-610 ink cartridges are rated for only 250 pages each.
The most impressive aspect of the XP-610 inkjet printer is the fact that it includes so much functionality in a very compact design. Its speed and output quality are both solid, and its mobile printing and touch-enabled control panel are impressive additions, making it a versatile machine for tight budgets.
