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
