Best small high quality wifi printer?
« on: March 19, 2017, 10:28:17 PM »

My printer is an Epson 4900.

My wife wants to get a small printer with wifi to print mostly photos from her iPhone. She is as into photography as you can be using an iPhone. Does anyone have any recommendations for a small high quality printer for her?

Based on my research, the Epson PM-400 looks like the best option.

Thanks in advance!

Jeff, I have no experience with that printer or that genre of printers so I can't say which might be best. 

I think the big selling point is that you can print directly from an iPhone, iPad, etc.  I'm guessing it uses pigment inks so print quality and longevity should be satisfactory for the use.

That's a strong point for me. Epson claims 200 year longevity for the prints from this little printer.

I have a new six-ink Ecotank Epson that produces superb letter-size, borderless prints on Costco Glossy paper. Will also print longer prints, as long as the short dimension is 8.5 inches. It's an L-805, available on ebay.

It's quiet, fast and miserly with ink. Shipped very quickly (and free!) from Oregon.   

I love this little printer. I calculate a full bleed letter size print costs me fifteen cents, including ink and media. I'll say again, the prints are gorgeous. I've seen no fading problems with the dye inks, and the colour saturation is superior to my pigment ink printers. My other printers are a wide format Epson 9800 and a new HP Z3200
