    Our old printer is gone, so I'm finding new one. I need color printing and scanner. Other features which I need are Wi-Fi connectivity, USB, AirPrint and printing via Internet, while I'm not at home and I need to print something for other peoples. Also good ipad Pro app would be good.

    Budget: 280 euro.

    I need compatibility with:

    macOS Sierra
    iOS 10
    Windows 7
    Windows 10

    Thanks

    EDIT: I found Epson Expression Premium XP-830, any experiences with it?

    I have an older epson sx435W.

    I bought it as was using android at time and epson was easiest to setup on android.

    I have since moved to mac and I just tell preferences to search and it finds it and installs.
    I have not used web print away from home so cannot speak of that.

    But A friend recently bought a canon and a 2009 macbook, again worked right away.
    The wireless did NOT work on her windows 7 and had to setup a classic cloud printer to use it on wifi.

    I have heard reports of newer epson printers, theses used 29 (strawberry) inks that they have poor print quality if left standing for a while and require several cleans to fix.
    This is not good if you are remote as cannot see the print out.

    Maybe look at a laser as no ink to dry up?
    I have a samsung printer at home, no scanner though

    You might want to check out the Canon MX922. I just purchased one from Amazon for $69. I believe it does everything you want. I haven't had time yet to test out all its features.

    I just looked up the M922.

    Agree looks really good.
    I would just point out at our company I am a printer engineer.
    I fix/repair printers for my sins.
