A budget, home printer with some surprising features!
This is one of Epson's budget home printers, but I am surprised at how many great features it has! The list includes wireless printing, scanning, copying, as well as an SD/memory card slot and a pop-up, LCD, touch screen front control panel.
Upon unboxing, you will see that this is a small printer. The dimensions closed are 15.25" wide x 5.50" tall x 12" deep. With paper loaded in the back and the paper tray extended in the front, the dimensions are 15.25" wide x 12" tall x 17.50" deep.
Be sure and take all of the packing tape and foam off and out of the printer before using. Epson suggests having a USB printer cable (NOT included) available for printer setup, even if you will be using this printer wirelessly. I have set up several Epson wireless printers and have never needed a USB cable. Here are the steps I use for an easy, trouble-free installation.
On your computer, go to Epson dot com and under support and drivers, enter XP-400 and download the combo software driver package. Even though a CD with the drivers comes included, they are invariably outdated so get the latest ones from Epson. While you are at it, bookmark (and later print) the full User's Guide at Epson. It contains much more information than the printed Quick Guide that is included in the box.
While it is downloading, power on your printer. It will direct you to install the ink cartridges (included). Then, on the LCD touchscreen, select wifi setup. You will need to know the name of your wireless network (SSID) and the password, if any. Once this setup is complete, it will offer to print a wifi confirmation test page, so load some paper if you wish to do this.
Now go to your computer and install the software and drivers you just downloaded. When it asks, select "this printer is already connected to my wireless network" and continue with the installation. When it finishes, including any firmware upgrades, you're ready to print! By the way, if there are several computers in your home, you must install the combo software drivers package on EVERY computer that wishes to print to this printer.
Note: if you print the initial test pages during installation, you will notice it is excruciatingly slow. Don't worry - after installation is complete, printing, scanning and copying is much speedier.
Text is crisp and clear and color printing is vibrant. You will get the best results using premium inkjet paper or premium photo paper, but text documents are quite acceptable on plain, old copy paper. Photos on photo paper are pretty darn good! Not photo lab quality, but you could certainly frame a print for your desk and not be unhappy with the quality.
Scanning in professional mode produces excellent scans! The Epson scanning software offers many options to suit your needs and is relatively easy to figure out even without reading the user's manual.
The SD/memory card slot on the front of the printer lets you print without even turning on your computer! You can even print a preview sheet of all the photos on the SD card from your digital camera.
A nice surprise is that this printer features Air Print, Epson Connect and Google cloud printing! Air Print means that for me, I can print from my iPhone, iPad or iPod without any additional setup! Epson connect lets you print remotely from anywhere you are. Google cloud printing lets android users print wirelessly from their phones and other devices and even lets you share your printer with others.
I'm very surprised at how many features this printer has. Because it's a budget printer, there is no paper tray and it doesn't have fax capabilities and it's not as speedy as the Epson WorkForce line. But I can definitely recommend it for home use at a very affordable price.

Small footprint, very low cost consumables, reliable wireless printing
By Jeri Zerr
***EPSON CONNECT OUTAGE NOTICE***
I received an email last evening stating Epson Connect will be down the evening of Aug 28, 2012 through the morning of Aug 29, 2012 for upgrades. The exact time is dependent on time zone, obviously. I include this here for anyone trying to setup their new printer and not realizing why the Epson Connect (remote printing) isn't working. I will remove this notice after the outage has transpired.
This printer is a very basic, no frills printer, easy to setup, cheap to maintain. It's cost is comparable to similar models, the big plus are the very inexpensive individual ink refills- low cost for continued use.
This printer is ideal for someone who needs a basic inkjet color printer, low-cost ink, does not need a photo printer nor faxing capability and scans single pages at a time (such as scanning photos).
For what the printer is and what it is marketed as, it is a 5-star printer and I have rated it as such.
This printer does NOT have a document feed tray - scans are a single page at a time.
This printer is NOT an all-in-one as it does NOT include a fax.
This printer is NOT a photo-quality printer.
This printer does NOT come with a USB cable - as it is not needed on most wireless networks.
If you need the above capabilities (document feed tray, faxing, etc) consider the Epson Workforce line of printers- they are also easy to setup, very reliable, and use reasonably priced consumables (ink).

Excellent so far
By T. Nasseri
Just bought this from Staples for $69.99. I was going for the Canon MX410 or MG4120; however, we bought it over these even though it was $10 more mainly because of the size (much smaller and space saving) and the multi-ink cartridges (4 - Black, Yellow, Blue, and Red). The cartridges will only cost $8.99 each for the colored ones and $12.99 for the black ink. One reason I chose this printer is to minimize the cost on the ink. I will have to do some more research on buying ink at a greater discount (i.e., Office Depot store brand). The test quality of the copy of the Staples weekly advertisement done at the store was excellent.
We are going to use this printer for general document printouts at the house (i.e., will not use to print 4 x 6 pictures) and to make copies. The set-up took me about 25 mins. since I had to clean the area where the old HP printer was and took my time reading the instructions. You could probably do it in 10 mins. It took no time to set-up the printer on my wife's MacBook Pro. I was looking forward to printing from my phone (Motorola Droid RARZ using MOTOPRINT) and it took less than 30 secs. to add the printer and print a PDF document I had previously viewed. It printed within a minute. Please note that I did not have to download any other apps to do this. I will try printing a test page away from the house (i.e., when I am at the store or work to see if it can be done). I then printed a page from Yahoo! on my wife's iPhone and it started printing in less than 10 secs. and both pages were done printing in 15 secs. or so. I then set-up the WiFi on the printer itself by adding the password and it was really quick.
In conclusion, and although I have had the printer for less than 1 hour, I am very satisfied with my purchase and don't regret it. I've always owned multiple Canon printers and my wife owned an HP. I will update my review in a month or so after more usage.
