Epson PX720WD – a new member of the series

Today we will carry out a review of Epson PX720WD. It has two main merits: double-sided printing module and touch-sensitive display. However, the first is no longer a novelty. All the seven-hundred series with Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD (available with CISS) as a leader are the series of home photo printers. The first model of the line was launched on spring 2009.

According to the official press release you are able to buy all-in-one Epson PX720WD starting with 2010. As you can see, you will have to overpay for duplex if you decide to buy Epson PX720WD, because the price of TX700W and TX710W is lower due to its absence.

The manufacturer encored its hope on the series. However it has to launch Epson PX720WD in order to boost popularity of the series. The main peculiarity of Epson Stylus PX720WD is a combination of trendy style and excellent technical characteristics. In our review we want to test whether it is possible for a device to be smart and clever at the same time.

Epson PX720WD. Review. How to make a choice.

Epson PX720WD has a particular role in the line. All the members of the series have the same hardware with exceptions in several options. So if you are looking for a double-sided printing module, it will be wise to buy Epson PX720WD and get stylish control panel as a bonus.

Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD is its immediate rival with automatic multipage document feeder for scanner and title of the most stylish and multifunctional all-in-one device. As for seven-hundred line, Epson Photo PX720WD has no equal rivals. However, if you are looking for a cheaper alternative you may buy Epson Stylus Office BX525WD model, but you will have to cope with lower scanning resolution.

Epson PX720WD. Design

Epson PX720WD all-in-one with CISS is a brand model. Epson PX720WD has daring and stylish design. It is always called not only as a multifunctional device but as a photocenter. Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD has no assembling imperfections. The only thing you may nag at is a detached duplex module.

Epson PX720WD photocenter is characterized by impressive weight but compact dimensions. Its plastic cover is thick and nice to feel. Epson Photo PX720WD almost has no glossy surfaces. However designers decided to make the most frequently used panels glossy. So if you have decided to buy Epson PX720WD you should have a duster by the hand.

On the front panel of Epson PX720WD with CISS a handy and touch-sensitive control panel is situated. It has inclination angle that can be fixed, besides in lifted position it provides access to a CD tray. Many customers consider LCD of 6.3cm which enables to view photos as one of the reason why you should buy Epson PX720WD. It is obvious you won't see small details or color tints while looking at it.

The highlighting of the touch-sensitive screen is orange. Those, who are ready to buy Epson PX720WD, would easily cope with operation of the device. While Stylus Photo PX720WD is working, only enabled keys are highlighted, so the device is user-friendly.

Designers placed USB port and card reader on the front panel in order to facilitate the operation. By means of USB you can connect flash card, external hard drive or photo camera supporting PictBridge. You can also connect the all-in-one via WiFi or Ethernet. As you can see, one can buy Epson Photo PX720WD just because of great variety of interfaces.

However, review of Epson PX720WD had found demerits of the device. And these demerits are simplicity of tray construction. Input tray is horizontal and is situated in the bottom of the unit of Epson PX720WD all-in-one. Output tray is also horizontal, but it is telescopic and its size rises dramatically after being folded out, especially if compared to size, mentioned in official documents.

Pre-conclusion. You may buy Epson PX720WD just because of its design. It is said to be a trendsetter among printing. And results of the review show that Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD is going to continue this way. However, people who decided to buy Photo PX720WD should take into account its impracticality. Epson PX720WD with CISS has easily soiled surface. And this can be called its main disadvantage. And now let us move to Epson PX720WD testing.

Epson PX720WD. Review. Manufacturer about its device…

Among all home al-in-one you will hardly find a model more technically advanced than Epson PX720WD. The reason why it is so is that Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD comprises all the best technologies. Its 6-color printing system is another reason to buy it. Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD uses usual CMYK palette with light cyan and light magenta that improves printing quality. Minimum ink drop volume of Epson PX720WD with CISS is 1.5pl. Besides it has impressive number of nozzles: each cartridge of Epson PX720WD has 180 nozzles for ink dispersion.

The manufacturer claims you should buy Epson PX720WD not only because of high quality only, but also due to high speed of performance. According to official press release Epson PX720WD delivers 6 photos of 10x15cm format or 40 pages per minute. It should be stated that in most cases officially claimed speed turns to be overrated. High resolution of 2400x4800dpi is another reason to buy Epson PX720WD. However, this option can only be valued by professional designers or photographers.

Epson PX720WD. Review. Testing

Testing results of Epson PX720WD (the review was carried out by professionals) were not a surprise. It is really worthy to buy Epson PX720WD in order to deliver photo prints. This device guarantees excellent color rendering and copes with printing of different types of photos.

Meanwhile, office printing is not as good. In the draft mode print have some imperfections: symbols are vague and there are horizontal strips in documents. Testing in "Text" mode showed better results. Though, black symbols have grayish hues. However it is not essential.

We were glad with printing speed of text documents. In "Text" mode Epson PX720WD with CISS delivers 11 pages per minute. Though it is not claimed 40 pages, still it is a good speed for an inkjet printer. Draft printing results are poor, though the speed is 25 pages per minute. For customers willing to buy Epson PX720WD will be useful to know that it prints a standard 10x15 photo in draft mode per 15 sec. It is a good result.

Epson PX720WD. Review. Conclusion

Launching of Epson PX720WD may be considered as an attempt to boost interest in seven-hundred series. We should say it has some results. Epson PX720WD and Epson Stylus SX235W have good design, stable work cycle and high quality of prints. However, it costs money.
