EPSON Artisan 700

Anonymous, Newegg
9 September 2009
  • Pros: Stationary ink cartridges, fast printing, quality color printing, easy set-up (both hard wire and wi-fi). Great new printer. Delivery was only 48hours from time of order. (Awesome) Haven't scanned much yet, but printed some pictures, cd/dvds, and some generic web pages. All were quality prints. A...
  • Cons: The unit is a little noisy when it starts and when it feeds the paper. Also, the lightweight paper tray seems flimsy and cheap...... but I wouldn't let either of these keep you from buying the printer.

A solid choice

Russell B., Newegg
7 May 2009
  • Summary: Even though I haven't yet explored anywhere near all the features yet, I thought I'd write a review since I've had a chance to deal fairly extensively with EPSON's customer service. The first unit arrived quickly (thanks, Newegg!), but would only display an error message after powering up.
  • Pros: FAST photo printing (compared to what I've been using). Easy setup. Sleek, low profile; paper tray is housed inside the unit. So far, everything has been intuitive. Outstanding customer service from EPSON.
  • Cons: The first unit that arrived was DOA. Not the quietest printer I've encountered.

great

T9 T., Newegg
8 April 2009
  • Summary: fyi it DOES come with its first load of ink. all 6 cartridges and then an extra black. if you do setup the wireless from the printer itself and install the software and it runs a wireless setup wizard, select WDS even though it says (not supported) and it will search for your already setup printer...
  • Pros: i absolutely love how you can configure all network options, even wireless and WPA security, entirely from the printers interface. fast, quit printer. its great. we love it.
  • Cons: installation of software cumbersome and confusing. your installing all these different thing and its not very clear what is what and why. software conflicts with older versions of similar software already installed from older printers

Great Printer ink cartridges not so great

Stuart R., Newegg
25 January 2009
  • Summary: waiting for a company to come up with refillable cartridges with ARC auto reset chips on them that will be nice. from what i have heard they will be out soon. linexports has them but they said they are still trying to get tha arc chips to work
  • Pros: Over all great printer love it. had a hp printer and the artisan 700 puts it to same. the best printer i have ever owned by far.
  • Cons: look out for the cost of the printer cartridges before you buy it i didn't and i think if i did i wouldnt of purchased. they are really expensive. at least half the price of the printer!!and they have smart chips on the ink cartridges which is an estimate how long the cartridge will have ink so i...

A very nice printer with a few quirks

Colin Y., Newegg
27 December 2008
  • Summary: I don't know if this printer has upgradeable firmware. If so, it's possible some of my quibbles could be fixed. Glossy output is equal to my 2200 (which, to be fair, is notoriously bad for glossy).
  • Pros: Excellent photo printer that can also work as a general purpose printer (if you don't mind the cost and hassle of using inkjets for that purpose). Wireless, ethernet, USB. High quality output. Good quality scans. Dedicated photo paper tray. Supports WPA2 wireless security and you can set up the k...
  • Cons: Paper handling a bit "sloppy" (as compared to Epson 2200) - some prints come out skewed. No manual feed slot so you need to reload the cartridge to print custom sizes (but that's usually envelopes for me which is what my laser printer is for). Can't have network and USB connection simultaneously,...

Practically perfect

Anonymous, Newegg
26 December 2008
  • Summary: The MSRP cost of a full compliment of standard-capacity ink cartridges is about $80. That would be fine, except, that fill will print maybe 40-50 4x6 pictures. I consider that a generous estimation (yes, this is after the initial cartridges for "priming.
  • Pros: Amazing print quality. The paper jam problem people talk about with this and the Artisan 800, I've not yet experienced.
  • Cons: Very high per-print cost when using brand-name ink cartridges. This printer also loses most of the scan/copy functionality when not connected via USB. It can still scan to a memory card, but that's it. For this reason, the wireless/LAN aspects are entirely useless to me. Yes - it's a bit loud. Ca...

Good printer, but high total cost of ownership

Erik, Amazon
23 December 2008
  • Summary: I like the printer, and I would recommend it. My only real complaint is the total cost of ownership is high. Order a set of ink at $60 when you order the printer, because within a couple weeks of starting it up, you'll need to replace them. Pros: 1. Instructions were great for wireless install. 2.

Excellent printer uses too much ink (too expensive).

anon., Amazon
23 December 2008
  • Summary: I ordered the Epson Artisan 700 mainly because it prints on CDs and DVDs. It does this very well, better than the HP 5280 which I have used for about two years (and which is practically defunct).

Very satisfied.

Brian Penn, Amazon
23 December 2008
  • Summary: I've had this printer for about three weeks now and have been very pleased with its performance. I'm a semi-professional photographer, so I only this printer for CD/DVD printing and text. But I am very happy with the prints that it produces.
