Summary: The Epson Artisan 835 color printer is the next level above the Artisan 810. Like the 810, it prints quickly with good results; photos in particular come out excellent. It features built-in wireless, an automatic duplexer, and has a great, large (7.8-inch), tiltable touchscreen that makes it very easy to use. With six ink cartridges to replace, its cost of ownership will likely be high. Still, the results are excellent.
Pros: Fast and excellent print and photo quality, Easy to set up built-in wireless networking, Built-in duplexing, Very large touchscreen and LCD
Cons: More expensive than the comparable Artisan 810, Long setup time, Six ink cartridges means more consumables to buy
Conclusion: So to sum everything up, the 835 is still produces great quality prints, it does not require new ink to activate, and it is wireless N certified. However, it does have a shorter warranty, and it used up half my black ink just in the activation.
