Conclusion: Besides photos though the Artisan 800 is an extremely useful and excellent tool for all other office type tasks, it performs flawlessly whatever job is thrown at it, and the quality of the work it puts out is amazing. I’ve got me a new favorite printer, all other printers out there should just give up now and go back home. The other manufacturers out there need to take note of the Artisan 800 and follow suit as this is nearly the perfect printer on the market today.
Pros: Excellent quality pictures, Easy to setup and use, Wireless!, Much more than just a photo printer, Touch screen interface with LCD display, Fast printing both pictures and regular printing, Tons of features
Conclusion: I am really impressed with the speed, quality, and how quiet the Artisan 800 is. I don’t think I found a single problem with this printer other than the text quality, but that is a tough area for all inkjets.
Summary: I really enjoyed playing with the versatile Epson Artisan 800 all-in-one printer. It was easy to set up (including the wireless networking), its large and tiltable LCD made photo editing a snap while the touchscreen keeps the machine button-free, and the print quality--particularly for photos--was outstanding. All in all a best buy. Epson has done a great job with the Artisan 800 all-in-one inkjet printer.
Pros: High-quality images, Networkable via wired / wireless network, Includes copier, scanner, fax
Cons: Duplexer is optional, Some features don't work across the network, Long warm-up times
Conclusion: Epson’s Artisan 800 is loaded with features and it’s competitively priced. It’s a much better photo printer than it is an office machine, but if you really need to make dozens of copies, print reams of documents, and print high-quality photos on a daily basis, you should buy devices dedicated to each task. We also want to comment on Epson’s claim of wireless connectivity, which the company describes as “wireless 802.11b/g, compatible with 802.11n.
Pros: Excellent photo printer; supports wired or wireless Ethernet; good quality scanner; useful touch-screen interface
Cons: Not the best inkjet document printer; some plastic parts are flimsy; requires expensive ink
Summary: The Epson Artisan 800 produces impressive color prints, photos, and text documents, and it outpaces the competition in almost all of our speed tests. We're impressed by its performance, but hesitate to recommend this printer based on the poor build quality and error-prone software.
Pros: Prints high-quality color photos and documents; industry topping output speed; small footprint; integrated CD drive for custom prints.
Cons: Extremely buggy software constantly disrupts work flow; flimsy plastic output tray; delicate input tray prone to paper jams.
