Printer Epson Stylus Office BX305FW

Multifunctional device Epson Stylus Office BX305FW

Epson Company produces printer lines of different purposes starting from plain printers and going up to all-in-ones, devices for text printing and photo delivering devices. This piece of writing is devoted to BX305FW inkjet all-in-one printer that is a prominent member of a budget segment.

This multifunctional device was designed to fit office printing needs and therefore it is rather a moderate device as it has some drawbacks. But let us start from the beginning.


As most of its congeners, Epson BX305FW is a squat and compact unit in matt black colours with rounded corners. Its lid is designed in wave shape and hides fold-out automatic document feeder with 30-pages capacity. The device is provided with two line LED screen that is placed on the front panel, most control keys are to the right from the screen.

On the panel there are number pad to facilitate number dialling and five buttons that are related to five different telephone numbers which can be assigned to the fax. Input paper tray is situated at a rear and can hold up to 120 paper sheets. In general, Epson Office BX305FW looks neat but slightly overloaded with buttons.


This multifunctional printer is an inkjet piezoelectric printing device. This means that it doesn't heat ink and therefore avoids nozzles clogging. Moreover, the printer emits less radiation and has low level of energy consumption and proves it with Energy Star certificate. Epson Stylus BX305FW has 128 nozzles for black and 42 for each of three colours (Cyan, Magenta and Yellow). Due to this and ink drop volume of 3pl the device is able to produce imprints of 5,760x1,440 dpi.

All the four cartridges of the printer are filled with resin-based DURABright Ultra ink that is water resistant and lightfast. Moreover, this kind of ink dries fast and printed texts or images are smudge-proof and highlight-resistant.

All-in-one printer Epson Stylus Office BX305FW


The device can scan, make copies, print and send/receive faxes. So if you missed London - Manchester football match, you can receive some photos via fax and then print them. Thought, Epson BX305FW delivers photos of better quality on plain paper. The device may act independently of a PC, but only when making copies or receiving faxes.

Stand-alone functioning is limited because of text only LCD and absence of memory slots. As for connectivity, Epson BX305FW Wireless printer is provided with USB and telephone ports, Ethernet and Wi-Fi connection. Though, there is Epson Stylus Office BX305FW series and it lacks wireless connection, but in general has the same specifications as its wireless series.

Before buying these printers make sure you can pay extra as though average cost of Epson BX305FW is about £60 and Epson Stylus BX305F costs even cheaper, they don't have USB cable in their packaging set. Still, it is not a problem to get this cable in Nottingham, Birmingham, Edinburgh or elsewhere. In fact, the device costs its money, though if you are looking for alternatives Epson Stylus Office BX305FW Plus and Epson Stylus Office BX320FW stand first at the list.

In whole, MFD is good, it scans and prints at top level. Fax connection is also at high level. I would add more colors for printing cool photos. CISS is very profitable and the ink is not expensive for it. Now I have an opportunity to save much money on color print.

I have no regrets that purchased Epson Stylus Office BX305FW with CISS here, everything works just fine.
