The size doesn't work for the printer,
This review is from: Epson Premium Photo Paper GLOSSY (8x10 Inches, 20 Sheets) (S041465) (Office Product)
I bought this paper for the Epson 890 printer. The printer I love, the paper, I don't. This size paper isn't entered in the printer software that comes with the printer. There is no borderless 8x10 paper setting. You can manually select the size and check borderless, but the printer thinks its 8.5x11 and if you selected to print an 8x10 with your picture software the printer adds a border to 3 sides and cuts off the picture on the fourth. I played around with various paper sizes and printer options but with no improvement.
This was very dissapointing. I bought 8x10 photo paper because I wanted 8x10 borderless photos, once you trim the shots down, they are no longer standard sizes for putting in picture frames. If you want 8x10 shots, buy the 8.5x11 borderless paper and trim. Its the only way to get a standard sized picture.
Also, I wouldn't recommend 8x10 shots for digital photo printing. Unless you have a very high Megapixel count, the pixels are spread too wide on an 8x10 and there is visable dithering or pixelation. I have a 3.1 camera, and I have noticed some dithering, you can see the pixels or dots from the camera.

The poor review should be for the printer and the lack of supported paper sizes, not for the paper. The paper works great in a printer that supports it, like the Stylus Photo 1280...

This review should be on your lack of knowledge of how to print photographs and not of the paper. BTW - what is a 3.1 camera? Not one that I have heard of.
