The new compact Epson Expression Home XP-102 all-in-one printer becomes available to buy from today priced around £50 and aimed at the home and student market.
Previously the word 'Expression' was used by Epson for it's scanner range, but we will soon see a list of printer models bearing this tag, followed by letters XP.
The XP-102 features a healthy print resolution of 5760 x 1440 dpi, however the scanner is only 1200 x 600 dots per inch. There is no Wireless / WiFi and no support for mobile devices. There are no memory card ports so you will need a PC or Mac to operate this printer.
This Expression Home uses the new Series 18 Daisy Ink Cartridges that come in standard and XL versions. Prices start from around £7 each. Compatible and refillable cartridges are not yet available and the original genuine Epson inks cannot be refilled because they contain a smart-chip. However when they do become available you will be able to buy from http://www.printercartridges.net/
