Epson XP-445 Drivers Review - If a driver for the Epson expression Home XP-445 is installed, it runs under the name of "XP-442 445 series". This includes more than one model. Reason: multifunction ink is available in two variants-for XP-442 black, as XP-445 in the case of white. In addition to color, the combined identical printer. You do not have a fax function, but you can print, scan and copy. This can be controlled by a smartphone and tablet through services such as Apple's AirPrint Cloudprint and Epson, Google Connect and proprietary applications "Epson IPrint".
Print, scan and copy is relatively low, you can befriend the Epson expression XP-445. However, this versatility is not suitable for higher throughput, because the work speed is too low and too high a price page in the long run – although four separate ink tanks. The compact dimensions of a somewhat relative use. This is where the feed tray and paper that have outsourced additional occupy the space for the back and front. The right quality for the price range. This means that the multifunction for home is good value for money.
In addition to USB 2.0, EPSON expression Home XP-445 relies on N-WLAN and Wi-Fi direct. For this purpose offers SD card slot on the front of the device. The Control Panel can be folded and carried a peculiarity: because the manufacturers had built up the screen with a soft surface for tapping more comfortable. However, the model does not have the touch function. On the contrary, we can only control the test through separate with arrow and "OK" buttons via the menu button. The structure is clear, self-explanatory symbols. Automatic duplex unit is missing from XP-445, although combi printer print front and back part of the sheet by driver's manual (the manual is a duplicate).
EPSON expression Home XP-445 seats four individual ink tanks are cool separated by the printhead is installed permanently. Even with the XL ink from a multi, we compute the 3.7 cents for black and white and 11.7 cents to sheets do not bargain page. This is the only side of the page to sign in to money.
Power consumption inconspicuous. If versatility on the USB port, power consumption in sleep mode down 0.9 Watts. Via WLAN, showing a 1.4 watt meter-good value is OK. Less well, we found that the Epson models fully disconnect from the power supply, but it's still rather interesting 0.1 watt. This is not a high consumption, but it's just not necessary.
The Epson expression Home XP-445 can be used in cut time to work on the task. Ten pages of text from Word is finished after a minute-an average value. After all, the same job through WLAN take just as long, so do not delay via a wireless interface. When color came into play, the print speed continues to decline. So we wait for the PDF page ten with colorful graphics and pictures 4:52 minutes-this relatively long. Also, without the photo frame 10 x 15 cm is made with 2:52 minutes relatively slow.
Similarly, it was also entered into the scan: If the preview was ready to received ten seconds, XP-445 need 28 seconds to scan. Given these values, it is not surprising that a copy also takes time, as shows a copy of color by 41 seconds.
