Epson Expression Premium XP-6100
The mid-range inkjet Epson Expression Premium XP-6100 is a multifunction printer that offers printing, scanning, and copying. It can be shared on a wireless network, offers convenient touchscreen input, and provides duplex printing. it is suitable for home use, and will also effectively serve a small business or office.
One of the key benefits of the mid-range printer is its speed. The XP-6100 can print pages in mono and colour, up to 32 pages per minute.
The inkjet printer will print a single 6x4 photo in just under a minute and can produce two 10x8 photos in less than 10 minutes. If speed is important, the Epson is a solid choice, especially at this price range. It is ideal in intensive settings, such as offices, where a backlog of print jobs can prove costly.
When it comes to photocopying, the XP-6100 can reproduce a page of black content in nine seconds, and a colour page takes 19 seconds to finish.
Photo printing capabilities
The Epson Expression Premium XP-6100 utilises separate black cartridges for office printing and photo printing, too, allowing you to use more expensive dye-based black ink for photos and pigment black ink for standard printing.
Office and home printing
The Expression Premium has a host of other useful features too. It has a small bank of buttons and touchscreen, offering intuitive controls. It can be used for duplex, or double-sided, printing. In fact, the only feature that it lacks is that of a fax machine.
The range of features, speed of printing, and relatively compact design of the XP-6100 make this a suitable printer for home use, especially thanks to the separate photo and standard black printer cartridges. The speed of printing and WiFi capabilities also means that this Epson model lends itself perfectly to use in busy offices where time is of the essence.
