Epson Unveils Expression Home XP-410 Small-in-One Ink Jet Printer

In June, Epson released the Expression Home XP-410 Small-in-One, an upgraded version of the Express Home XP-400 printer launched last year.

Stacey Tieu, Product Manager for consumer inkjets with Epson America, said that the new XP-410 employs the same basic print engine as the previous XP-400, but it uses Epson’s MicroPiezo DX3 permanent print head. This head features 180 nozzles for black ink and 59 nozzles per color for 357 nozzles that emit a minimum droplet size of 3 picoliters. The XP-410 uses Epson’s four-color DuraBrite Ultra pigmented ink set and leverages existing consumables.

According to Ms. Tieu, nearly all of XP-410’s specifications remain unchanged from the previous XP-400. The main improvement is support for Wi-Fi Direct. This technology enables Wi-Fi Direct devices to connect directly to one another without the Internet, a wireless router, or Wi-Fi network access point. Ms. Tieu said that the XP-410 was designed as a complete wireless solution. It includes a 802.11b/g/n wireless interface and Epson Connect. Epson Connect is Epson’s proprietary technology for mobile printing from an iPad, iPhone, or Android tablet or smartphone, together with Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print. Ms. Tieu indicates that some additional updates to Epson Connect can be expected this fall.

Ms. Tieu highlighted one other new feature on the XP-410. The new inkjet device includes templates for printing calendar pages, graph paper, and notepaper with a personal photo in the background.

The Epson Expression Home XP-410 Small-in-One is available now at a price of $99.99 through major retailers and Epson’s retail site.
