Epson Stylus NX127 Driver Mac OS X

Epson Stylus NX127 Driver Mac OS X. Review – This Epson color printer/ scanner combo (Stylus NX127) produces decent quality output & is a good value for it’s relatively low price. Granted, there are better units on the market, by Epson as well as other manufacturers, but they will cost more. I have been using this all-in-one attached to a MacBook running OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) for about 4 months. It is not my “workhorse” printer and scanner – I have a Brother color laser printer on my home network, and an Epson standalone scanner attached to my desktop iMac. These are the units I use for large print jobs or when I want the best quality output. These two units are in my home office. My laptop, however, is on my coffee table in my great room where I listen to music and watch TV, and this Epson is on the back corner of this (large!) coffee table. I use it to make a fast copy, print out something quickly from the Internet (like driving directions, or a recipe to carry into the kitchen), or to scan an image of something quickly to e-mail to someone. This little Epson unit has done well with these “convenience” type tasks, keeping me from having to go back into my home office.

Setup was easy – I didn’t use the supplied CD, but rather went to Epson’s Web site to download the latest drivers & utilities so I would be sure I was getting the most current ones immediately. Within minutes, I was up and running. Since initial setup, newer drivers have been installed automatically by OS X’s software update – again, no problems. Day-to-day operation has been completely trouble-free – no paper jams and no dried-up print heads (the latter being something I feared might happen based on past experience with a much older Epson inkjet printer). As for ink economy, I am still on the low-page-count color ink cartridges that came in the box with the unit, but I have had to replace the black ink cartridge, which cost $18 for the high-page-count version.

Epson Stylus NX127 Driver Mac OS X – Print quality is good, not great, as is scan quality. It is no speed demon – not a problem for me with my short documents. This is NOT a unit I would recommend for high-resolution photo printing or photo scanning, nor for large print jobs – not surprising given the low cost. Rather, I would recommend this unit as a light to medium duty unit for utilitarian tasks – making a quick copy of a document (made easy by buttons on the unit itself for B&W or color copies), printing out something from the Internet for short-term use, or taking a quick scan of something to e-mail. If your needs are more than these basic tasks, I would encourage you to look elsewhere (and you should expect to spend more money). Otherwise, I would recommend this unit, especially given its budget price.

Set up is easy. I basically removed the packaging, installed the software and plugged it in. The software installed quickly and the test pages printed beautifully. It’s not the fastest printer, but black and white and color print outs are very crisp. There are four ink cartridges, so it could get expensive if they need to be replaced frequently. I’ve printed about 50 pages so far and they are not anywhere close to empty. Scanning and copying is a simple process and the results are quite good. A little bit of the quality is lost when scanning high definition photos, but I’m pleased enough with the results considering the reasonable price of this unit.

Had I purchased this Epson for the main purpose of printing photos, I ‘d have been disappointed. Again, the process is very easy with the Epson software, but the results are not of the best quality. No matter how I edit them, the color is not as vibrant as it was with my previous printer or from a photo service. Also, my pictures have a line across part of them. It’s as if my 4×6 paper were separated into quadrants and one of the boundary lines of the upper quadrant prints (sorry, I can’t come up with a good way to describe it). Since printing pictures is not my primary interest, this printer is fine for me. It meets my needs and delivers very good results.
