Gadget of the day: Epson PX800FW

Printers don't tend to rake in the design awards or stun with their curvaceous beauty, but Epson's new multifunction number might actually convince yo

Granted, when open the PX800FW is still unmistakably a printer, but in its closed form the glossy black finish and touchscreen could see it mistaken for a piece of expensive hi-fi kit.

It's a clever chap too, with Wi-Fi for sending snaps from your laptop, and faxing, photocopying and scanning all on board. On standard print quality it spits out 6x4 photos in seconds, and there's a duplexer if you fancy doing some double-sided printing.

Throw in other clever tricks like the ability to print onto CDs and DVDs and the ability to turn scanned docs into editable text, and you have a useful addition to your arsenal of home tech.
