Perfect Printer for Pictures and More

I recently had the awesome opportunity to review an Epson printer!  It was the Expression Premium XP-600 Small-in-one.  First of all I have to say that I love the name, small-in-one, it is too funny and definitely grabs your attention.  But the name is not the only great thing about this printer.  One of the absolute coolest things about it that I have never had in another printer is
I can print from my phone no matter where I am!  I can be at my mother-in-laws house and print a picture at home from my smart phone!  How nifty is that?  (Yeah, I said nifty...old school, I know) 

This printer is a dream!  It has all the aspects that I want in a printer; printing, copying, and scanning!  Not to mention that it also has automatic two sided printing which is a must for me since we use the printer for all kinds of projects and I want to save paper.  I love that I can have my photo paper and regular letter paper in the printer at the same time and not have to change them out each time i want to use one or the other.  I have had to do that with numerous other printers and it is a pain in the butt.  

It is also super small so fit nicely on virtually any desk without taking up half the desk!  It measures 15.4" x 13.4" x 5.4" (W x D x H) and only weighs 21.5 lbs!  This is quite petite for an All-in-One printer!

Used the Printer for Munchkin 2's Science Fair Project!

The quality of the print is super crisp and clear!  The images and text come out with true colors and without any blurriness or strange lines.  You don't even have to be connected to a printer to print; the built in card slots and super clear LCD screen allow you to print straight from the printer.  The prints that you get are even smudge, scratch, and water resistant!  I can let Munchkin 2 look at them without worrying that she is going to smear the ink or if she gets a bit of juice or water on them, ruin them.  I love that they are so worry-free.  

I have to be honest though and admit I have another favorite feature, other than the printing from my phone or tablet, I can print my own Cd's!  I am sure this might not seem like a big deal for someone that has done it before but I am super thrilled to be able to do it.  And they look so great when they are done.  Now I can make slide shows for my family and have a nice picture right on the CD and a title and everything rather than just some handwritten title that looks tacky and boring.  Love it!

The scanning feature is super easy to use, which makes me happy because it is a feature I use pretty frequently.  I am always putting old non-digital photo prints and putting them on the computer so I can post to Facebook and embarrass someone.  I also use it for receipts and documents.

Protection You Can Count On

The Epson Expression Premium XP-600 Small-in-one printer comes with a one-year limited warranty so you are protected if their is a manufacturer defect.  You can even buy extended warranties!  I love it when companies back their products.  It lets me know that they have trust in their product but occasionally a less then adequate product does get through the quality screening. 


Epson's motto is Better Products for a Better Future because they believe it is a company's responsibility to be environmentally responsible.   

I love to do what I can to improve my carbon footprint and this printer helps me do that.  A little bit goes a long way.  The two-sided printing helps me save paper because I only use 50% of the paper I would with one sided printing.  This printer also does something that not all printer do and that is it is capable of printing on recycled paper.  Again Awesome!  The printer is ENERGY STAR certified which is a huge thing for me because it not only helps me reduce energy cost it helps save the planet.  It is also RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliant.   The printer unit itself is even recyclable!  And lastly Epson is a SmartWay Transport Partner.  For those of you that don't know what SmartWay™ Transport is; it is a collaboration between the United States Environmental; Protection Agency and the freight industry to help freight companies and logistics companies improve fuel-efficiency and save money.  Essentially they help improve air quality by helping companies to reduce the amount of fuel they use when transporting products and materials.
