Excerpt: We recently reviewed Epson’s Expression Premium XP-800 Small-in-One Printer. ( Read the review .) I was impressed. Judie and I came back from Aruba having taken a huge number of pictures. Many of them can be seen in this post on “ Amazing Aruba “.
Pros: Small; All-In-One does pretty much anything and everything you will want from a printer; Wireless printing built right in; Touchscreen is nicely responsive; Menus make setup and use simple; Printed pictures are stunning; Uses six cartridge of photo-quality ink
An all-in-one unit with a small size and an ability to produce fine photo prints

Conclusion: Epson's XP-850 has a 6-ink system that a great job on photo prints, and unit overall is an interesting proposition. It's small and mostly intuitive to use, and it has essential home office features such as an auto document feeder and auto duplexing. We're not fans of the output tray design, though.
Pros: High-quality photo prints, Small footprint, Google Cloud ready, ADF and auto-duplex
Cons: Motorised output tray and screen, Can't scan directly to USB sticks
Conclusion: The Epson Expression Photo XP-850 would work well as a photo printer that will occasionally double as an office MFP. It’s at least one feature better than the Canon Pixma MG8220 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-In-One, which lacks an ADF.
Pros: Great-looking photo output; automatic duplex printing and scanning
Cons: Washed-out colour graphics on plain paper; clunky push-scan setup
