Epson Expression Home | XP-342

Protect your products from fault and Accidental Damage cover with Product Care®


Printing can be both cost-effective and high-quality; our XP-342 is the proof. It uses individual inks so only the colour used needs to be replaced, offering great savings. As part of the small-in-one range, it compactly packs in lots of features and it’s stylish too.

Efficient & affordable

Here’s an impressive all rounder you can rely on. With Epson’s Claria Home Inks, this small-in-one is ideal for producing both crisp, clear text, and glossy, lab-quality photos. It’s also really economical as it uses individual ink cartridges, so you only have to replace the used colour, saving on costs.

Mobile printing

Whether using a smartphone or tablet, the iPrint app1 can be downloaded to a range of devices for truly wireless printing and scanning. The possibilities don’t end there; with Epson Email Print1 it is possible to print from almost anywhere in the world1 by simply emailing documents and photos directly to the printer. For creative-minded people, the Creative Print1 app can print photos directly from Facebook, create custom greeting cards and stationery, and even turn photos into colouring book templates. For added versatility, Wi-Fi Direct allows easy printing from compatible wireless devices without the need for a network connection.

PC-free printing

Simply slot in a memory card and use the 3.7cm colour LCD screen and helpful menu prompts to print your photos without a PC.

Epson Expression Home | XP-342 is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Epson printers always deliver what I need I have used Epson printers since the md 90s. The XP342 is a good all-in-one as are my SX235 and XP312 (both the latter still going strong) I am used to Epson on a home network so found no issue setting up. My problem has always the cost of Epson ink which is a real disincentive. I get lots of copies from each cartridge that I buy, and quite frankly, if the printer fails because I'm not using genuine ink, I would buy another. Hence 4 stars not 5. My one beef is that it goes offline because I don't use it all day, and I forget. But that's me, and not the printer. The bells and whistles are no use to me really, but it's handy to be able to print from a card.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice compact printer, but using SDHC cards a nightmare I bought the printer for the convenience of WiFi printing. Once I turn the printer on in the morning I have been able to print with ease. When it comes to transferring photographs to my PC I use the SD port, but the transfer takes ages. On my previous SX415 I had no bother, Files could be copied quickly. On this wee device it took me over two hours to transfer what used to take about 15 minutes. Maybe this is to do with the transfer being wireless and I'll have to seek advice on how best to overcome this issue. But at the moment this is the only bug-bear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PRINTER ON A MISSION Only had it 3 days, but it's so much better than the unit it replaced. Photo printing is a breeze with the supplied software and the quality is top notch and pin sharp. Best to use photo paper rather than normal for the best results. Scanning-easy, copying could be easier with the menu. Wireless setup was a bit fiddly as the WPS didn't seem to work and had to link manually and adding the password is not straight forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great space saving printer. I bought this printer a few months ago as it had everything i needed. It’s ease of use and multiple functions made it a great choice. I can print straight from my phone, use memory cards, scan/copy documents and print great photos. All this in a great little printer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the best Compared with other printers this is overpriced I needed a printer in a hurry because my old printer was broken. I regret buying this printer. Not as sharp printing as my much older printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great printer I bought this printer a few weeks ago to replace a more expensive unit. The cost of this machine was less than 4 replacement ink cartridges for our old device! The Epson is inexpensive plus easy and straightforward to setup and use, also the print quality is very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fabulous little printer I love this printer. We bought it from Rymans a few months ago and have been pleased with it ever since. SO easy to set up and print from all our devices (laptops, ipads and iphone via app). Good print quality. Little LED screen is very helpful
