Epson's PX830FWD certainly offers a large range of features for the price, and it can produce photos and colour graphics quickly. CNET found it simple to set up and use, but they reckon the running costs of around 3.4p per black and white page, and 9.5p per colour page are rather pricey, and text printouts don't look as crisp and sharp as they should.

Value for money: 4 out of 5 stars, "Recommended"

With an easy to use touchscreen, the Epson Stylus PX830FWD makes printing, scanning, copying and faxing a breeze, and versatility is increased by the addition of a document feeder for scanning and duplexing facilities. Prints in black and white are not perfect, but they are adequate for most home or small office purposes, according to ePHOTOzine, who recommended this device.
