Expert Reviews

Epson Stylus Photo 925 Reviews

CNET reviews the Epson Stylus Photo 925 and writes;
“All of the Epson 925’s useful features simply can’t make up for the printer’s lackluster performance. Our jury awarded the printer’s version of our 8×10 test photo a good rating–but barely. Skin tones had a dark, pinkish hue to them, as did all the red elements in the test image. Close inspection of the photo revealed blurriness and an inability to reproduce finer details, such as the tortoiseshell pattern of the subject’s eyeglasses. Epson representatives suggested using a different type of Epson Premium Glossy photo paper (rather than its regular glossy), and the photograph did seem a bit better.”

Ephotozine reviews the Epson Stylus Photo 925 and writes;
“In the Stylus Photo 925, Epson have created one of the best direct photo printers available. It’s not the fastest around, nor the cheapest, but it generally delivers very high quality prints. Extra features such as the automatic paper-cutter and the good user interface for the direct printing menu are bonuses.”

User Opinions

Epson Stylus Photo 925 User Reviews

Great Printer
“This printer is great for printing pictures and you can even print them without owning a computer, as long as you have the memory or flash card. It is also capable of printing the long roll of 4 x 6 borderless photos and has a self-cut device that cuts out the roll for you. When printing the glossy quality photos, it consumes lots of ink, so you might want to keep some back up cartridges, since they will drain out pretty quickly. Look for those generic ink cartridges for this model. They work well and save you money.” – by “ketlas”

Great Printer / Reasonable Price
“The printer setup was very easy, I like the Epson quick start guide, it was easy to understand and it only took me 10 minutes to setup. I can start print photos right away by insert the CF card without PC, it was so convenience to print snap shots at home without waiting for hours or days. I was very impressed by the colors and details that I got from the pictures. It look like the prints you order from the local photo labs.” – by Hsi Wong

Fabulous Printer
“This works like a dream. Installation and setup on XP Home version on my Dell Inspiron couldn’t have been easier. The photos are truly awesome. Incredible clarity. Since I print mostly from the computer I don’t really need the extra ability to do it stand alone, but I guess it’s nice to have.” – by Deep Eye

Beautiful pictures, great customer service
“I just bought this two days ago. I was switching from a Canon S800. I was extremely impressed with the pictures that were coming out. Much better than on my old Canon. Setup was a cinch. The best part is the true borderless prints. The 4×6’s I printed look like they came from a photo developer. In fact, they’re probably better looking than any one-hour photo I’ve used. And the pictures look great on matte or glossy. The epson paper is also cheaper than the Canon paper. I only wish Epson made precut 5×7 paper!” – by K. Kohatsu

Phenominal cost/performance Printer
“In sum, a great printer. Sturdier construction than Epson has produced in the past, exceptional quality prints. The status screen is hard to read if the printer is on a tall surface. The paper is actually kind of difficult to load correctly. The lack of a preview monitor (and its supplemental expense) makes many of the features unusable. But these are really just technical points. At the price this printer is going for, it is a must have for amateur photographers. “ – by Elton Dodson

A great Photo Printer
“I have always owned HP printers but never satisfied with the quality. I am so impressed with this Epson printer. I have made beautiful copies of pictures and found it difficult to tell which was the copy. The only thing I recommend is that if you are printing pictures then use Colorlife paper. “ – by Nancy M. Thibodeau

Great gift for the computer phobic
“I bought this printer for a freind who has no desire to own a computer. Yup, they’re still out there. He loves my old digital camera I gave him. But he was frustrated taking the smart card to the drugstore for printing. He can now print his own pictures at home! The photo quality is fantastic. Really a great stand alone printer.” – by “duchamp12”

Great quality printer
“I purchased this printer a few months back, it is a good printer. First I would like to say that I’ve read other reviews on this printer stating different types of problems people where having with it. In the time I’ve used it, I have not experienced any problems with it. Print quality is excellent. In fact when I ask people to try and tell the difference between the printed copy and the copy from the film developers they end up picking the copy I printed, thinking it came from the developer. In fact my printed copy comes out more crisp and clear.” – by cobra9143
