Epson Stylus NX420 All-in-One Printer Review

We are always printing stuff off in our home. Whether its my husbands school work or pictures. Unfortunately the printer we had, had to be plugged into our computer in order to do anything. We had talked about getting a new printer, a wireless one to be exact, but we were not sure about which one we should go with. There are so many to choose from, and so many brands to choose from. I wanted to make sure we got one that would print and scan. Also, when I printed off pictures, I wanted to make sure the quality in the pictures was what I was needing and looking for. Well, when given a Epson Stylus NX420 ,our search was over. And the product we received was very nice. When I was told what Epson would be sending us, I immediately went and looked up the tech specs on this machine. After reading up on the Epson Stylus NX420 and showing my husband the specs, we were so excited!! Not only does it have a scanner and make great picture prints, but it is wireless! Yay!! Once it arrived, we synced it up with our computers then put it to the test. I printed some of our family photos on glossy paper stock. Wow, nice!! Very impressed and once it printed I didnt have to wait for it to dry, it dries instantly. I also like that if I want to print something off, I dont have to go and hook up the printer and reset it every time like I was having to do with our old printer. The Epson Stylus NX420 also has a small LCD screen that tells you what you are doing and what it is doing, how cute!!! I know, not cute, COOL as my husband says. I think its cute, lol! My daughter wanted to test it, so she went on one of her sites and made a picture then colored it online, then printed it, a masterpiece!!! So, yes this is the printer that we were looking for and so much more. When you are out looking to get a new printer, dont go any further, get the Epson Stylus NX420, trust me, this is the one you need!!! Here is some info on this amazing printer so you can see what I mean!! Oh, let me tell you a little secret, I will be giving one of these away during the Home For The Holidays Giveaway Event!!!!
