Epson Stylus Photo R310
- Good glossy prints
- Small LCD size, poor quality of plain paper prints
The Epson Stylus Photo R310 prints superb glossy photos and works well with a variety of media, but if you plan to make many prints on plain paper you should look elsewhere.
Price$ 265.00 (AUD)
If you want to print images from many different sources, the Epson Stylus Photo R310 should provide the versatility you need. Its media card slots accept all the major formats, and its direct-print port does more than just communicate with compatible digital cameras: you can use it to offload your photos to a whole host of devices, including Zip drives, CD and DVD writers, and USB flash drives.
The R310 proved very economical with its ink and paper. Using its six individual ink cartridges, during our tests the R310 printed excellent glossy photos on letter-size paper as well as superb 4" x 6" snapshots. However, its text prints were very poor: letters looked grey and very fuzzy. Similarly, colour graphics on plain paper were unimpressive; images looked blurry, with banding and obvious bleeding.
The R310 printed a borderless 4" x 6" snapshot in 108 seconds--a little slower than average. It printed text at 2 ppm, much slower than most comparable printers we've tested.
The Stylus Photo R310 comes with two LCD screens. Many other photo printers with an LCD offer a 2.5" colour display, but the R310's colour LCD measures only 1.5"--too small to adequately see edits made to your images. The larger 2.5" monochrome LCD shows the menus. We think a single 2.5" colour monitor would have been more useful.
Like Epson's R800, the R310 prints on coated CD and DVD discs, using a tray to feed them through. Epson provides a basic utility for designing the labels. On the downside, the R310 skimps on paper capacity--just as the R800 does.
The Stylus Photo R320 also works with an optional Bluetooth adapter for printing from compatible camera phones and PDAs.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications
I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)
It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.
I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
