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
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
Excerpt: When a device tries to be all things to all people, it usually winds up satisfying no one. Most all-in-one printers, for example, are good for lightweight office tasks, but they make lousy photo printers. Epson’s Artisan 800 is much better than that: It’s a fabulous photo printer and a pretty good light-duty office machine.
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
