Epson Stylus Photo PX660 review

We put Epson's new Stylus Photo PX660 all-in-one printer to the test

Epson Stylus Photo PX660: Performance

The PX660 made a good job of our printer test chart, with accurate colour rendition and very good tonal range, managing to clearly differentiate between steps at both the lightest and darkest ends of the greyscale bar.

There was marginal jaggedness in some of the finest diagonal lines and concentric circles but certainly no worse than we'd expect from even the most up-market inkjet printers.

In standard colour mode, colour reproduction is quite faithful and accurate, while the 'vivid' mode has the effect of brightening green and blue hues, while marginally darkening reds, which gives landscapes a bit more punch.

A Photo Enhance option is also available with an auto mode or manually selectable choices like people, landscape and night scene. It works reasonably well but, in our tests, skin tones were a little cool and unflattering in the standard colour setting and the 'people' enhancement merely made the whole print brighter, rather than warming skin tones for more flattering results.

Scan quality was less than impressive because, while colour accuracy and sharpness were good, with plenty of resolution of fine detail, nearly all of our photo scans had noticeable banding, with streaky lines running across the images.
