So get a feel for the build, design, specifications and more with our First Look and come back soon to get the full story when we share our full review of the Epson Expression Home XP-400 Small-in-One.

Build and Design

If you read our Epson Stylus NX430 review back in December, then you’ll recognize the Expression Home XP-400 since the two devices share the same dimensions at 15 x 12 x 6-inches in storage (15 x 21 x 11-inches in use) and a similar design with black paneling, the smart touch adjustable touch panel, rear fed tray and 8.5 x 11-inch flatbed scanner.

The smart touch panel offers a 2.5-inch LCD and the keys light up as needed, depending on the job the user is trying to perform. The only traditional key is the power button. The built-in memory card reader is found to the left of the control panel and is compatible with SD cards and Memory Stick/Memory Stick Duo.

The Expression Home XP-400 features a 100-sheet rear fed tray that can handle a variety of media ranging in size from 4 x 6-inches to 8.5 x 44-inches. The output tray pulls out from the front of the Expression Home XP-400.

Lift at the center of the printer to access the four DURABrite Ultra pigment ink cartridges (CMYK). The Expression Home XP-400 comes with four standard capacity cartridges, but Epson offers high capacity replacement cartridges.

All the connections are found on the back of the Expression Home XP-400. Customers can choose between a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 or Wireless 802.11 b/g/n connection.
