The international ISO print speed standard – Print speed is critically important when buying a printer or all-in-one. But how do you compare print speeds when different manufacturers measure it in different ways? Now you can. Much like the “MPG” ratings on new cars, there’s now an industry standard for measuring print speed, which allows for an “apples-to-apples” comparison between different printer models and brands. The International Organization for Standardization (widely known as ISO) developed this industry-approved and internationally accepted standard, specifically for inkjet printers and all-in-ones. It measures “out of the box” (default) print speeds using “real world” printing scenarios, so you can be sure you’re getting a product that performs at the speed you need.

Another fantastic entry level printing solution from Epson!,
The XP-310 is an entry level all in one, but don’t let the tiny price tag fool you, this is a quality and versatile piece of hardware. It’s a bit more compact than your average all-in-one which is great for those with limited desk space. The control panel folds out for easier use and folds back in so that it is flush against the body when you’re done. The input and output trays also extend and contract. This allows it to keep a clean and compact look when you’re not using it.
Out of the box setup could not be simpler. I was up and running, printing photos in less than 15 minutes. Press the wireless setup button on the menu, select your network, type in your password and you’re good to go. Throw an SD card in the front slot and use the menu to browse pictures and select the ones you want to print. Could not be easier. It also makes copies using the scanner and, while the scanning area could be a bit bigger, it easily accommodates your standard 8.5 x 11 paper. The interface is extremely simple and effective.
What really impressed me is the Epson iPrint App (free on the app store). Once installed you can print from your phone (photos, documents, emails, web pages) and scan images directly to your phone. I was also surprised that my WF 2540 also showed up on my list of available printers. This is great as I no longer have to email photos and documents to myself so I can sit at my computer or laptop and print.
Printing is crystal clear. I was unable to locate photo paper so I printed a photo from my camera roll on my iPhone 5 to regular office paper. I was very impressed with the detail and color saturation evident on the sub-par paper.
Epson has once again exceeded my expectations and released a no-nonsense home office solution that is professional quality at an entry level price. Highly recommended!

Decent budget printer,
The install was pretty painless. They recommend using a USB cord (not included) for the initial set up and adding wireless after that. This worked great for me. The installation guide somehow connected to my wireless network without me even having to enter in the wi-fi password. I then disconnected the cord and printed my first test page without a hitch. Next it wanted to update the firmware. Over a wireless connection, the first 3 attempts failed. Once I plugged the USB cord back in, the firmware updated fine and I’ve been able to do everything wirelessly since then.
There are two ways to scan. You can use the screen on the printer for a quick scan straight to your computer as either JPEG, PDF, scan to Outlook e-mail. For more versatility, initiate the scan from the Epson Scan software on your computer where you can tweak color, resolution, contrast, etc prior to scanning. Either function works wirelessly.
I haven’t owned the printer long enough to comment on its durability. In general, let me mention that the first printer I ever bought cost $400 and lasted me about 7 years. Today’s printers do ten times as many things but they are not built to last, especially at this price point. I expect to get a couple of years use out of this before something on it fails, by which time I’d probably want to upgrade anyway.
A word of advice about ink, I’ve had experience with 3 other models of Epson printers and they do not handle refilled, non-OEM ink cartridges very well. You’ll get a barrage of error messages when you attempt to install your cheap ink cartridge and even if you get past those, your print quality will be terrible. Re-manufactured ink is so tempting because of the price difference, but I am convinced that it has killed at least 5 printers in our office over the years. Buy the name brand ink, print something at least once a week to keep it from drying out and your printer will last a lot longer.
