An inkjet all-in-one aimed at keen photographers

The Expression Photo XP-750 is an inkjet multifunction printer designed for people who want to print, scan and copy photos, and has impressive specifications to match. There’s a high-resolution scanner for capturing finer details of photographs, and support for printing directly from memory cards, including the widely used SD type. The scanner doesn’t have a backlight though, so it can’t be used to digitize old slides and negatives.

The XP-750’s most important feature, however, is the printer itself, which supports high resolutions and uses small droplets of ink – each forms a miniscule dot on the page, making it impossible to spot grain with the naked eye. The printer uses six inks rather than the more common four or five, with extra-light magenta and cyan colors that reduce grain and improve shading in light regions of photos.

When it comes to printing photos, the XP-750 is peerless

The XP-750’s specialty isn’t everyday plain-paper printing, but it did better in our tests than similar Epsons we’ve reviewed. It’s not especially fast at printing documents, delivering black text at only 6.8 pages per minute (ppm), but the results were sharp so the occasional letter will look good. Color documents on plain paper were rather impressive and not much slower, shooting out at 6.1ppm, which is fast for an inkjet.

It’s fast even at its very highest quality, delivering a borderless A4 print in just less than three minutes, and postcard-sized prints in 85 seconds each

When it comes to printing photos, however, the XP-750 is peerless. It’s fast even at its very highest quality, delivering a borderless A4 print in just less than three minutes, and postcard-sized prints in 85 seconds each. On color or black-and-white shots the results were superb, with sharp, faithful colors in both dark and light regions, reproducing very accurate detail from the original image. Black-and-white shots printed onto Epson’s Premium Glossy paper had a mild magenta tint straight after printing, but once dry they were neutral and detailed, with a lovely gloss finish.

While Epson’s scan interface has an automatic mode for novices, experienced users should opt for the excellent Professional mode, which gives full control. It’s blisteringly fast, completing a low-resolution A4 scan in just 11 seconds and taking only 21 seconds to scan a photo at 600dpi, even when connected over Wi-Fi. Again, the results were great.

This multifunction printer is stull expensive to run, but not unreasonably so

This multifunction printer is stull expensive to run, but not unreasonably so

The XP-750 is a little more expensive than competitors, such as Canon’s Pixma MG6350. However, at about 9.5p per page of mixed text and graphics, its running costs are competitive.

This multifunction printer is stull expensive to run, but not unreasonably so. And if you need the best-quality photo scans and prints, we think this model is the best choice.

Our verdict: 5/5

A great photo printer that isn’t above occasional office work, it’s not cheap, but it’s worth it if you want the best

Key points: Superb, fast photo printing – High-quality scanner – Good scanning interface – a premium product, with a premium price

Best price online: $198

Alternative: Epson Stylus BX635FWD: $195. A multifunction printer that’s better suited for office work.
