The Good Very fast print speeds for documents; Dual paper trays; Duplex copying and printing; Touchscreen control.

The Bad Slow photo printing speed; Print quality not the best in class.

The Bottom Line Its print quality can’t match the very best inkjet models, but the Epson Stylus Office BX935FWD is still a good option for home office users, thanks to a stellar line-up of features, blazing-fast print speeds and modest running costs.

If you've got a busy home office to run, Epson is targeting you with its Stylus Office BX935FWD.

Priced at around £175, it's a multi-function inkjet model that offers printing, scanning, copying and faxing features. It also includes extras such as twin paper trays and duplex support.

Design

The BX935FWD may be aimed primarily at home office users, but that hasn't stopped Epson from giving it a glossy, consumer-style finish. It's quite a large model, standing at 300mm high and 446mm wide, so it's not exactly easy to hide away.

Epson has added a large 8.9cm touchscreen to a flip-up panel on the front. This is surrounded by extra touch buttons. The screen isn't as vivid as those on the likes of the Lexmark Interact S605, but the large array of touch controls makes this model easy to set up and use, even if some of the menu pages look overly busy.

There are additional controls on either side of the touchscreen.

Beneath the screen are two full-sized cassette-style paper trays that can hold up to 250 sheets each. As such, this model has a massive print capacity when fully loaded. Printed sheets are fed out into a slightly flimsy telescopic tray situated just above the top paper input tray.

The front of the printer is home to a multi-format card reader that works with CF cards as well as the usual SD and memory stick cards. Beneath this is a USB port for direct printing from USB keys and hard drives.

Set-up

This model has Wi-Fi, Ethernet and USB on board, so you've got the broadest possible array of connection options -- you can choose between them while installing the driver software.

Once that's completed, it's simply a matter of plugging the ink cartridges into a bay that's accessible by lifting the scanner unit. You should be up and running within a couple of minutes.

Scanning and copying

The flatbed scanner at the top includes an automatic document feeder and duplexer. It can be used not only to copy and fax multi-page documents, but also for automatic copying or faxing of doubled-sided sheets. The scanner is reasonably quick. Scans retain strong colour and more than enough detail for business use.
