Rated 4 out of 5 by imprint1 Good for Apple iPad and Microsoft laptop
Bought so that my wife could print from her iPad using a wireless connection. Now I also use it with a USB lead connection to my laptop.
This printer is new, a replacement for a similar device that we have used for 5 months, which stopped working following a paper jam. We couldn't clear the jam and the printer went into repetitive mode. Prior to that we would have said it was a great product. Now we will be using the same model as a replacement, hoping we don't have another paper jam.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Wornoutandprintless Unable to connect anything other than usb
Three of us have spent 2 weeks trying to connect the XP-312 to a windows tablet, windows laptop and iphones.
We have only managed to print with a USB connection to laptop.
Tried to setup Epson connect but Epson software can not see the printer on the laptop even when connected with a usb cable.
You can see the printer from the tablet but it won't print wireless or through usb.
iphone air print no good either.
It goes back tomorrow, I have given up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by wonderbhoy bit of a hit and miss if you want to be specific
so needed a new printer after my canon packed in
fairly easy to set up via disc, wireless works fine, basics for printing CV's and letters etc
my only problem is that i cannot register my product with EPSON connect which is a bit of a pain if i want to use the additional features, which of course i do, i even tried uninstalling the full software as i need to get my "email address for the printer" but due to not being able to register it online then its a bit pointless spent the last few hours searching online for a resolution but cant find one therefore ill just need to face that i wont be able to get this "email address" that i need for EPSON connect, if i was able to do that then it would be a 5 star but its a 4 star due to this issue.
The hardware itself is a neat size and prints off quite easy though and quick although haven't tried the scanning part.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mogsy2009 Wireless is a necessity
This printer was not quite as easy to set up as said but having said that once we got everything co-ordinated then it found everything it needed and printed off the printers email as required. It was just a bit confusing to start with as we are not that tech savvy. Love the way it links so easy to Sky Drive and Epsom Iprint. Both work and make it easy to set up prints remotely. Just needs a bit of patience on setting up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Carola Neat without losing any benefits
Very easy to install and I like the way everything fits neatly back in place when finished with.
Lovely reproduction, as I always expect with Epson.
The only problems seemed to come when I tried to set up the WiFi email but managed it in the end. (wasn't certain from the information given on setting it up how to proceed and which email address to use etc.)
Would recommend the printer though very easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Colin1 A great printer, value for money, nice and compact.
Packed with loads of features i particularly like the remote printing from a mobile phone. Also like the quality of the printing real sharp photographs of lab quality. I also like the way that if you are low on black ink it will ask you if you want to mix other colours to conserve your black ink so that it gives you a chance to order more ink but carry on with the printing of photographs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SpookyTheKat Not worth the money
I brought this printer in December 2013.
I use genuine epson photo paper.
It printed 2 photos just fine but now won't accept photo paper.
Contacted epson online support who gave me details of repair centre.
In October 2013 I bought Epson 305 that printer had exactly the same problem. I returned that model to the store I got it from and exchanged it for 312. Both are a piece of junk!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Badger10 Very neat tidy machine, easy to set up even for a pensioner!
Pleased with our purchase, bought because my wife has an ipad and I have a laptop - we wanted to print copies and scan p/w.
Bought from a national 'up market' grocers!
The machine was straight forward to install for both ipad and laptop, surprised myself at over 70 and 'not into' computers.
Good quality clear colour printing.
Recommend this machine without hesitation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Baffled Not easy to set up!
I've never had problems setting up a printer before! This seemed so complicated and even now my Epson Portal is in Japanese! The printer itself is good but I don't know even now if it's set up for all the additional functions - it's that obscure to me! I'd recommend the printer on it's quality but the setting up problems would put me off recommending anyone to buy it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by gran Absolutely useless, the worst printer I have ever had
I bought this printer to replace an HP which had died, but had been a very good printer.Epsom have a good name,so I felt it would be a good buy. It was difficult to set up , it will only print 6x4 photos, A4 ones it gets halfway then cancels it. I have wasted loads of photo paper and inks, and I am giving up with it. A complete waste of money, I shall go back to an HP

Rated 5 out of 5 by Biker1 Early days but to date all we need in a printer/scanner
Set up easy and connected to wifi on first attempt. Also connected to tablet and phone with no problem. I have also set it up so I can email the printer from my phone. I have used the scanner to copy some old black and white photos and for the price more than acceptable. As long as you space photos out can scan three or four photos at a time depending on size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rohart Wonderful little printer
This wonderful little printer is small enough to fit on a small desk and is easily set up to enable many gadgets to use it. I have two notebooks, a kindle and an android phone connected by WiFi. The printing is superb for the price and on top of everything else the ink cartridges are much cheaper than my previous printer. So glad I bought it.

I bought a xp312 and had it all set up in next to no time. I'm no wiz kid with computers but I just followed the instructions.
I found the scanner and printer and copier were very good and the speed of the printing was adequate. I priced the ink and found it quite reasonable compared to some printers that I have had in the past.

Printer takes a long time from sending from PC to printing. Every time I send something for printing I get an failure to print message on my Laptop, and then 10 seconds later it start printing! I have not yet got it to print from my I pad or I phone both tell me they cant find a printer although they are within 12 inches of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LTBawden Spot on, simple wifi printer!
This lovely little printer has most, normal people want from a wireless wifi printer. An older Iphone needed resetting to find the printer. But works a treat now. All the house wifi laptops, pads and phones all connected. Really easy to set up. best all in one wifi printer i've ever purchased. Thanks Epson. Good job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by laticfanatic Nice little printer
This is a nice efficient little printer, but as the instructions are written (on line NOT paper copies) with the assumption that the purchaser is a technical whizz kid it took a while to set up, and necessitated a phone call to technical support to finish off. However it is now working quietly and efficiently.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Steve7 Excellent Small Flexible Printer
The Expression Home XP-312 has proved to be an excellent little printer producing good quality prints and also quite effective for reproduction of photographs.
The scanning facility is also very good and the quality of the scans is quite satisfactory.
I thoroughly recommend this little printer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ordinaryguy Not fit for purpose
This product needs to be set up with professional help. The instructions are badly set out and fail to explain the basic operational functions. This product could print wirelessly, but failed to scan at all.
THIS PROBLEM IS DESCRIBED IN OTHER REVIEWS ON THIS SITE. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Rated 2 out of 5 by righty this printer is so complicated.
though it prints ok,it is so complicated to operate because
of its lack of information in the small pamphlet i have to keep driving 10 miles to the store,eg i cant get the ink cartridge
holder to move so i can change the ink?.so its another trip
to the store.

So far Iv'e taken 3 attempts to register the printer and to set up the wifi.........I give up will just use as a normal printer scanner via the lead.
Epson printers are the only ones I've used but I'm well peeved this time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by whocaresfor1 ok.
You want a review after pestering me to register it and re-register it time and time again. All I am going to say it's an ok printer that does the job in hand at the time. Downside I keep getting pestered to register it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pick3 Great printer and copier
Found the 312 easy to set up and operate except the scan programme. I had to have my lap top reset at the store before it would operate, which caused a lot of inconvenience.
it now works very well.

I have tried time and again to set up the Wi Fi, it worked for one page of printing and never again.
I give up and am going to use the cable, I bought this printer because I wanted Wi Fi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EXBA Best printer I have had.
I have only had this printer for a few months - not bought any ink yet so not sure of price.
It is an excellent printer and the Wi-Fi is great. Cannot fault it in any way.

Value for money as always from Epson,only drawback so far is no facility to print directly from a camera unlike my previous Epson,unless I'm missing something.
