The Epson Stylus CX4700 is a multi-function device, which
can print, copy and scan. It has a memory card slot that supports cards of
multiple technologies. You can use these to print photos taken with your digital
camera or cellphone. This MFD provides a complete printing and scanning solution
for SOHO users and prints at enhanced resolutions of 5760×1440 dpi. Scanning can
be done highest at 1200×2400 dpi in 48 bit color. Use border-free printing to
give your photos a professional touch. The Stylus supports PictBridge technology
for PC-free printing. While printing directly from the device, you can print out
index pages of photographs in a film-strip style. You can even select the
required photos and number of prints from the index sheet. The Stylus CX4700
uses individual cartridges for each color and this is an advantage when you want
to replace them. Both the printer and scanner accept up to letter-size media
apart from the standard A4. Bundled with the piece is the usual imaging software
that helps with scanning, basic editing and adding effects to your pictures. The
rated speed of the device was 18 ppm for black and 9 ppm for color printing and
the unit impressed with speeds of 11.4 pages in black and 5.6 pages in color
modes. The cost of the black color page would be Rs 1.17 per page. When
scanning, a full-color page took only 1 minute to copy in normal and 4 minutes
in super-fine modes.

Bottom line: The Epson
Stylus CX7400 is a decent buy considering its performance. You can also check
out other options, such as the HP PSC 1350, which doesn’t have PictBridge and
has a lower resolution, but is cheaper by a thousand rupees. The other option is
the slightly more expensive HP PSC 1608, which has all the features as that of
the Stylus, but has a lower print resolution.
