Expert Reviews

Epson Stylus Photo R340 Reviews

MACworld reviews the Epson Stylus Photo R340 and writes;
“The color photos I printed on the R340 came out excellent. The print of our standard Macworld test image, a food scene with many different elements, printed from Adobe Photoshop using the included ICC profile, closely matched our control print. And though other midrange photo printers have been this accurate, the R340’s print appeared to have much more depth, which I’ll attribute to its excellent reproduction of shadow details.”
Rating: ★★★★½

PCWorld reviews the Epson Stylus Photo R340 and writes;
“Using its six individual ink cartridges, the R340 printed excellent glossy photos in our tests. Viewed close up, some highlights looked a little grainy and facial shading seemed exaggerated, but we saw plenty of detail in shadows. Our grayscale image didn’t come out quite as well, and it had some brown and green tinted areas that gave it an almost sepia appearance. Plain paper was a different story. Text looked grayish and characters had very fuzzy edges…”
Rating: ★★★½☆

PCAdvisor reviews the Epson Stylus Photo R340 and writes;
“this is a photo printer and, while its speeds aren’t searing, the Epson still compares favourably with many of its direct rivals. Crucially, the results are extremely eyecatching: prints are packed with colour depth and detail is sharp. We doubt you could be anything less than enthralled.”

User Opinions

Epson Stylus Photo R340 User Reviews

good basic printer
“I have used Epson’s professional printers for some time, so for a cheap at home printer I decided to stay with them. This printer can do all the important basics. Like most other little printers, this thing GULPS down ink. If you do very many high quality photo prints, make sure you have plenty of extra ink. Good image quality for the price.” – by M. Anunson
Rating: ★★★★☆

Very satisfied, highly recommend
“My parents are professional photographers and have been actively involved the up & comings in the industry for almost 30 years now and they, too, were very impressed at the quality of image (espicially for an 8×10) that this little printer produced. They have always used and trusted Epson products (they use a VERY large Epson to print some of their smaller studio work). I highly recommend this, as well as other Epson products. “ – by M. L. Farris

Easy to use, good quality color printer
“So, beyond that I have been quite happy with this printer. When using Ultra Premium Glossy photopaper, the output is much better than I expected. You can see some horizontal banding if you look closely enough, but from more than a few inches away from a printed photo and it looks like it came from an actual camera. The current Windows drivers for the printer do a decent job at providing multiple useful print options. The LCD display screen is vivid and placed right up front. The menuing system on the printer itself is fairly intuitive and easy to use, enabling you to print photos directly from a memory card without using your computer with minimal hassle. All in all I’m happy with my purchase. “ – by Will A. Seay

Love this printer
“This printer works great! Colors vibrant and easy to use. I bought it for the feature that prints onto CDs/DVDs and use it for my work. It makes a very professional looking “label” on DVDs/CDs that looks like it’s burned right on to the DVD (instead of those labels that stick onto the DVD which can get stuck in your computer or DVD player and ruin it!) “ – by Marci Liroff

Great Printer
“I have owned this printer for over 6 months, run over 200 cd’s through it and they all printed without any problems. I’m sorry to hear some other users had problems. Has been working great for me. I recomended it to a co-worker and he has had no problems with his either… “ – by S. Proscino

Wonderful budget photo printer for the Amateur Photographer
“I’ve had this printer for the past 3 weeks or so, and I am thoroughly impressed. I am an amateur photographer who insists on quality color and black and white photo prints. While, I could have spent a couple of hundred dollars more and have one with a more impressive printer, I am still a student and must live on a budget. I’ve been printing some of my recent photos with this and I couldn’t be happier. They come out crisp and the colors are great!” – by J. R. McDonald

Excellent home color photo printer
“I needed a a color photo printer that would function well on a number of types of media. Mostly I print on premium quality glossy photo paper. I strongly recommend Epson paper to keep total compatability with the Epson inks. 8×10 and 4×6 are my two formats. Both sizes come out very nice. I am careful to adjust printer settings for the paper I’m using and have no problems. “ – by Gary L. Markham

Is a tad bit inaccurate
“Well, I go this printer because I do event videography and I needed a printer to print directly to DVDs and also print the DVD labels. I used to use my past roommate’s printer, and it worked perfectly fine, besides the occasional DVD tray jams. So I went and bought my own printer. I took it out the box and followed the prep instructions, but since I have a mac, it took me longer than expected for the computer to recognize the printer. After I got the drivers and programs installed, the printer worked just fine.” – by Errol G. Webber Jr.

Flawed, but now fixed
“In general, this is a GREAT printer. The picture printing is very impressive when using the right paper, and the text printing is laser quality…” – by RMAC

Decent photo printer
“I have this printer for 5 months now and printed quite some photos as well as normal text prints. Overall I’m very satisfied with the print quality, especially photos. I’ve been printing on 8×10 inch premium glossy photo papers and the photos come out very nicely (even not with the highest quality setting). I prepare to frame some of them and hang on my walls.” – by Z. Zhou
