Expert Reviews

Epson Stylus NX420 Reviews

Pcworld reviews the Epson Stylus NX420 and writes;
“The Stylus NX420 was a mediocre to slow performer in our tests. Standard-quality text pages printed at below-average speeds of 5 pages per minute on the PC and 4.9 ppm on the Mac. Snapshot-size photos printed on the PC at a midrange 3 ppm on plain paper and a subpar 0.8 ppm on photo paper. Our high-resolution, near-full-page photo printed on the Mac took over 3 minutes to print (0.3 ppm), another below-average time. A simple one-page copy took 17 seconds (about average), but a mix of full-page and partial-page color photo scans were noticeably slower than the mean.”

Pcmag reviews the Epson Stylus NX420 and writes;
“Photos were slightly subpar for inkjets. Colors were generally pale, and prints were on the light side. Detail showed up well in dark areas, but poorly in brighter areas. Several images showed dithering, traces of dot patterns in solid areas. At arm’s length the photos might pass as drugstore prints, but were more problematic when viewed close up.”

Macworld reviews the Epson Stylus NX420 and writes;
“The Stylus NX420’s print quality suffers on plain paper, even the nicer-quality Hammermill Laser Print stock that we use for most of our testing. At default settings our text samples looked realistically black but fuzzy around the edges, while photos appeared washed out. When we opted for higher-quality print modes and Epson photo paper, we got much better results.”

User Opinions

Epson Stylus NX420 User Reviews

I set it up and printed in less than 30 minutes
“Even better, the print quality is excellent! It prints b/w at 35 ppm; color at 15 ppm. Print resolution is 5760×1440 dpi and scanner resolution is 2400 dpi. There is extra software included that allows you to print photos, business cards, greeting cards, labels, and more. The software is easy to use also. With very little reading in the manual, I was able to edit a photo, resize it, reposition it, rotate it, and print borderless or with a border. After I printed a page from my Mac, I tried the copier feature. It was SO EASY! I made a color copy and reduced it 80%. It provided amazing results for a printer of this price! Again, the directions were simple to understand. ANYONE could use this printer. “ – by Cynthia E. Downes

Easy to Set Up…Beautiful Prints
“It was a piece of cake. It took me a while to locate my wireless access password but after that the entire setup was a snap. The CD walked me through it step by step with illustrations and within 30 minutes I was printing full-color pages. The only drawback to this printer is that it is a little noisier than my previous printer but the only one who seems to mind that is Lily, the dog. I printed out some recipes and they were vivid, clear and bright. I’m pretty sure the Slow Cooker Island Beef looks better in the print than it will after I’m done attempting to cook it. This sleek, attractive printer is a great product for a great price. I’m very happy with it. “ – by Steven James

For its price, the bells and whistles it does come with and the brand behind the printer, makes this printer a solid buy
“Compared to other printers around $39-$69, I have to admit that you get a lot for your money with the Epson Stylus NX420. Printing is very good, speed is very good, ease of use is very good but there are some other things that people may need (especially the flash card capability or even capability to print on photos via a special carriage) which requires for the user to spend about $40-$50 for the next models up….” – by Dennis A. Amith (kndy)

Good quality printer, affordable prints (separate ink cartridges)
“The quality and the speed of printing is excellent. what is even better is that the ink cartridges are separate, which means that you only need to replace those cartridges that are empty, unlike other printers where you have replace whole cartridges itself. Wifi connectivity is very helpful since most households now have multiple computers and you cannot lug around your printer everywhere you go.” – by Mannina Magha

Epson NX420 – The Ace of Cheap, Fast, Good
“Scanning has always been a great feature of Epson’s products and it delivers beautifully; If you are fortunate enough to own a new Imac the extension for Photoshop installs itself automatically and you can start retouching instantly after setting up really professional looking scans. Print quality is superior to Canon and HP. The great thing about Epson, don’t bother printing at anything but “Normal” resolution, because you are just wasting ink. I don’t ever think I’ve owned a printer that I “enjoyed” using, until this one. All kinks of former incarnations are gone, quite simply. Image quality for artwork and photography is outstanding. “ – by Steven P. Gorney

Great WiFi All-In-One for the price
“I picked this up this weekend and so far I am very impressed. After spending 15+ years using HP printers I was a bit skeptical jumping ship to another brand. I was in the market for a WiFi printer that could also copy/scan. For the price I feel this is a steal. Setup was very fast. Printing/scanning/copying is very fast over WiFi. I’ve noticed people have complained about the ink running out fast, to those I say get a Laser printer if you plan on doing heavy volume printing.” – by Chris
Rating: ★★★★★

“This is a quality product. A well constructed all in one. When it first prepares to print it is very noisey, but if you ignore that it prints extremely well and very fast. I have had the product for over a month. I have printed many pages and photos and I am still using the original ink. I like the idea of replacing only the ink tanks that deplete. It is the only way it should be. I would recommend this product to anyone. For the price it is a great buy.” – by RainierReggie

NX420 Is Better Than Comparable Canon and HP All-In-Ones
“All are 3-color, plus black printers. The Canon photos were pretty bad, compared to my Epson R280. The HP was somewhat better, but lacked the snap of my Epson R280. The Epson NX420 produces very acceptable photo prints, almost the equal of the Epson R280. The Epson R280 is designed as a photo printer and uses the 5-color plus black, dye-based Claria ink. The Epson NX420 is designed for general-purpose use and uses pigment-based, DURABrite inks, 3 colors plus black, in separate cartridges, unlike the Canon and HP which have all three colors in the same cartridge…” – by Jerry C.

The new international ISO print speed standard
Print speed is critically important when buying a printer or all-in-one. But how do you compare print speeds when different manufacturers measure in different ways? Now you can. Much like the “MPG” ratings on new cars, there’s now a new industry standard for measuring print speed, which allows for an “apples-to-apples” comparison between different printer models and brands. The International Organization for Standardization (widely known as ISO) developed this industry approved and internationally accepted standard, specifically for ink jet printers and all-in-ones. It measures “out of the box” (default) print speeds using “real world” printing scenarios, so you can be sure you’re getting a product that performs at the speed you need.
