I purchased this printer on 9/25/08. All in all, a really excellent AIO printer. I've been waiting for Epson to put out a printer like this with all the options I wanted in one compact package.
There are some gotchas that you won't know until you set it up. I was on the phone with Epson support for over an hour before even they realized these features weren't available.
1. The Front Panel Scan To features only works if the printer is connected via USB. It does not work at all if the printer is connected to your network either hard-wired or wireless.
2. You can only use the memory card reader on the printer if it is connected via USB. Again, this feature does not work if the printer is connected to your network.
3. Per Epson support, you cannot use both the USB and Ethernet connections together. It's one or the other. I'm going to try it anyway since it took Epson support an hour to tell me that the Scan To and Memory Card Readers only work using a USB connection.
4. On a Mac (I don't know about Windows yet), you should uninstall any Epson Scan software for any other Epson AIO's that were connected to your computer before installing the Artisan 800 software. Also, be sure to run the Epson Scanner Utility and select the appropriate connection type. It defaults to LOCAL even if you set it up as a Network printer. That was a pain in the butt since nowhere in the documentation does it tell you about this.
5. For a $300.00 printer, it should have included the Duplexer, which is a $29.00 option direct from Epson. Epson is showing no stock for the Duplexer as of 9/26/08.
Also, don't be fooled into buying extra print cartridges when you buy the printer because the sales person tells you that the cartridges are only half full .Read more ›
Install was a breeze and the network capabilities are a plus. It has fax and copying capabilities and can also duplex print with the optional adapter. I haven't tried the CD printing yet but that is a nice plus also. It has a nice 7.5" front panel with a 3.5" viewing screen which works wonderfully. The multiple memory card slots are also excellent. I have to say I was initially very disappointed with this printer though due to the quality of prints. I went through 3/4 of the color cartridges trying to get an acceptable photo quality print. I tried multiple combinations of settings but nothing worked. I tried one last thing prior to returning the printer. I purchased the Epson 5 star Ultra Premium Photo Paper. WOW what a difference this paper makes. I went from lousy spotchy dotted prints on Kodak Premium Paper to photo lab quality in an instant. I was using my previous Kodak Premium photo paper but just could not get good results. I tried straight from the camera, from the printer and from the computer trying different combinations of settings nothing worked. I was down to about a 1/4 of the original cartridges when I finally switched paper. Do not use the Kodak paper in these you will be disappointed. Kodak papers are optimized to work with Kodak inks which are not the same as Epsons. I am not sure what other papers people are using but the Epson 5 star works beautifully. I was on the edge of returning this up to that point. I am not sure how the other Epson papers work yet I am a little hesitant to try at this point. I think the manufacturers of these printers need to work together and make their papers and inks a little more interchangeable. But that is wishful thinking. Especially Kodak who are supposed to be the photo paper gods.Read more ›
This printer replaces a recently kaput home Epson Stylus Photo 890. So far, the Artisan 800 is better in every way. It has the multi-page feeder for scans and copies, a very clear control panel, it looks great, it seems to have a smaller footprint than the Epson specs suggest, and it makes labs-results-or-better photo prints on Epson premium glossy paper.
The paper tray is two levels, all plastic, and has many flimsy plastic paper guides, so it remains to be seen whether it holds together over time. The paper tray does hold 8.5x11 paper plus 4x6 or 5x7 photo paper on the second level of the paper tray, which is a plus.
I've always owned Epson straight-through paper-path printers. I'm hoping this Epson folded-path mechanism works better than most of the HP printers I've used at the office.
Overall, a terrific printer so far.
UPDATED 11/18/08: Just tried to load Avery labels sheet(s) to print Christmas labels and return address labels for the mother-in-law. This was a NO GO. This printer cannot feed these sheets, and there is no work-around (manual feeder, etc.). When I went back to the owner's manual and to the Epson online resource, there are zero entries on how to load labels sheets. "D'Oh!" Now I know why. My recent experience with Epson online/email tech support had a three-week response time for a simple question about changing an ink cart, so I don't anticipate a response until long after I need to print labels. Very very disappointing for an otherwise terrific AIO photo printer. I would have to knock my rating down to four stars.
UPDATED 08/20/10: As I anticipated in my original review, after owning this AIO for almost two years, the plastic parts are beginning to show their wear.Read more ›
