Epson XP-405 Printer (or XP series). How noisy is yours ?

Everytime I use my XP-405 I can't help but think how noisy it is. Often at power on or power off it does what I assume is some programmed routine and the noise is terrible. Not just loud, it sounds as though the mechanism is being chewed up and destroyed. Think in terms of a child with a bit of plastic or cardboard on the spokes of a bike. Its that kind of a noise and not far off that noise level.

Anyone thoughts or anyone noticed this ?

Hadn't finished... page froze, I pressed enter :-)

I was going to say,

This XP series printer was a replacement for a faulty (leaking ink) SX445 and the SX model which was outwardly identical was as smooth and quiet as silk.
