Epson Stylus Photo R350
- Extensive features, Large sheet holder, Colour detail on photo prints
- A tad pricey, Slow print speeds
It's not cheap, but you get plenty of bang for your buck with the R350.
Price$ 349.00 (AUD)
Following on from the soon-to-be-discontinued R310 comes this even heavier-duty photo printer from Epson. It may not be cheap, but you get a host of goodies for your money.
The R350 boasts pretty much every feature the digital enthusiast could hanker after - from extensive support for PictBridge and USB Direct Print-compatible digital cameras to a memory card drive. Wireless capabilities are an optional extra. The R350 comes with a CD and DVD compartment so you can print images onto suitable media - an excellent alternative to LightScribe or LabelFlash. And thanks to the 2.4 inch colour LCD and extensive control panel, the printer is easy to navigate without connecting to a PC.
The R350 doesn't just aim to please the digitally minded, and the paper-handling facilities feel rather more substantial than some of the flimsy holders found on cheaper inkjets. With the ability to take up to 120 sheets of A4, this printer is excellent for large jobs.
But if you're looking for an everyday printer, be warned that print speeds aren't stunning. Even in the lowest quality mode, the Epson printed out text at the slothful rate of 8.6ppm (pages per minute) - 1.6ppm faster than its predecessor, but hardly impressive. Furthermore, to get good-quality text you really have to push it up to the higher modes and be content with less than a page every minute.
However this is a photo printer and, while its speeds aren't searing, the Epson still compares favourably with many of its direct rivals. Crucially, the results are extremely eyecatching: prints are packed with colour depth and detail is sharp. We doubt you could be anything less than enthralled. The Photo R350 faces fierce competition from the HP Photosmart 8250, and we think the HP retains a slight edge on overall quality and performance, but this is a good model.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!
For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
