The expert review acknowledged the SX425W is easy to use, with well designed software with presets that make printing a variety of documents simple.  They felt it was more cumbersome than others in this group but the benefit of WiFi means you could place it away from the computer if space was an issue.  Overall generates very high quality text, graphics & photos, despite being one of the cheapest models in the stylus range.

Trusted Reviews 7 out of 10

With an array of experience between them, the Trusted Review team declare the good points of Stylus SX425W include the colour LCD display, wireless connection & memory card slots.  On the negative side they thought the print speeds were low & quality not as high as some of it’s competitors.  They did accept that running costs were good when compared to some of their rivals.

Expert Reviews 4 out of 5 stars

The opinion was the great print quality along with reasonable costs are only let down to some extent by slow speeds and poor draft quality.

Another positive point is this multi function printer’s 1,200×2,400dpi scanner, competent memory card support with a small colour screen enables you to connect the printer to your wireless network without the need to configure its wireless settings via USB.

Cnet 3 out of 5

The review team appreciated the range of features the SX425W had to offer for the price along with low running costs.  Not so popular were the slow print speeds, they also felt the photo prints were rather dark.

The overall verdict was that whilst the printer is slow & quality could be better it does offer a lot of features for a low price.  They were also impressed by the low running costs.

So that’s about it, the Epson Stylus SX425W is a four ink model inkjet printer that also offers scanning, copying functionality & easy Wi-fi set up.  With more positives than negatives, this printer seems to have a lot going for it, so long as you don’t expect to print multiple pages in a hurry.
