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.
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: 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.
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
Summary: The Epson Artisan 800 makes perfect sense for those looking primarily for a photo printer, copier and scanner. Its plain paper print quality isnâ€™t great, but absolutely fine for personal and casual use, and its fully functioning fax machine and network connection options are nice to have features. If you can live without faxing, automatic document feeder and the nifty touch screen, the otherwise identical Artisan 700 costs less.
