The Good The Epson Stylus CX makes photo printing remarkably easy; good text printing and scanning; individual ink cartridges.
The Bottom Line We wish that the Epson Stylus CX’s speed and print quality measured up to its low price and joyfully easy-to-use interface. Review summary In addition to scanning, copying, and printing from media cards, a PictBridge camera, or your computer, the Epson Stylus CX multifunction photo printer offers a few useful features that we rarely see in a budget all-in-one.
These include individual ink cartridges, the absence of special photo inks to buy, and a truly beginner-friendly photo printing process. Nor does this Epson let you initiate a scan from the printer without a PC, so the walk-up features are limited compared to those of other all-in-one printers. This is also one of the slowest printers we’ve encountered recently, and its print quality is disappointingly uneven.
The Epson Stylus CX follows the basic paradigm for all-in-one printers: At nearly 19 pounds, this modest-size machine pulls off its gray, silver, and faux-chrome plastics with majual and convenience. The scanner lid detaches easily so that you can scan and copy thick books, and the top of the printer lifts up like the hood of a car to reveal the print engine and the ink cartridges.
The slots show up as drives on your computer, so you can use them to transfer files. Plus, a PictBridge port lets you print directly from a compatible digital camera.
Instead of an LCD, an array of buttons on the top panel put the walk-up printing options within easy reach.

Using the memory-card button, you can print an index sheet of the contents of a card, individual prints from that index sheet, or everything on your camera or card. The Copy button lets you specify the number of copies, which appears on a small LCD counter. Other buttons toggle between paper type and size, and will fit an image to a page so that you can make a borderless copy of a photo.
Large black and white and color start buttons launch functions and prevent you from wasting the wrong ink. Unfortunately, the CX lacks the abilities to tweak photos before printing without using your computer, to fit multiple prints on letter-size photo paper, and to launch a scan from the front panel.
But we do appreciate that Epson covers the basics, with the buttons to serve less tech-savvy users. The success of the Epson Stylus CX as an easy-to-use photo printer hinges on its ability to print from an index sheet.
Just plug a card or a PictBridge camera into the all-in-one, load some plain paper, press Start, and pages of your thumbnails will spool out of the printer. With an index sheet, you can ink in the bubble beneath styluus picture you want to print, insert photo paper, pop the index sheet back onto the scanbed, and press the “Print from index sheet” button. If you have more-sophisticated printing plans, you can transfer images to your computer, tweak them using the included ArcSoft Photo Impression software, and adjust print settings through Epson’s print drivers.
The Epson drivers cater to beginners and advanced users. You can use them to adjust individual color levels, brightness, contrast, and saturation levels, or use the PhotoEnhance options to print in grayscale or sepia tones. One design flaw we noted is that you can launch only via the Epson Scan software on your PC, not through syylus front panel buttons. The software has three modes that are tailored to beginner, intermediate, and advanced users.
Full Auto is for quick, easy scanning without a lot of decision-making on the user’s part. Home Mode is task oriented and asks you for the type of scan photo, illustration, or line art and the destination Web, printer, or otherbut it also lets you adjust the descreening filter, the brightness, and the contrast, as well as restore color to faded old photos with one click.
Professional mode lets you specify if you’re scanning reflective material or film, choose bit color, 8-bit grayscale, color smoothing, or black-and-white scanning, and perform histogram adjustment and tone correction. Due to the lack of optical character recognition software, you’ll need to purchase your own if you’re going to scan a lot of text. We also missed software that gathers all the functions under one umbrella interface.
Where other all-in-ones, such as the Lexmark P include software that launches, say, when you insert a media card to walk you through printing, Epson leaves you more on your own. As for adjusting photocopies, there are no tweaks to make on your PC. Still, we stylue the CX’s individual ink tanks, which allow you to replace each color separately sfylus it runs out rather than buying one cartridge with all four colors.
