OK, but for the price, I wanted excellence. I'm a bit disappointed.

Summary: I bought this printer because the Kodak one I had was awful and quit working. I print crosswords and photos and a few documents. This new printer by Epson is very much better than the one I had.
Summary: So I finally did the switch from HP (which I have been using for over 10 years) to Epson, which I have heard good things about. After using it for a short while my ink ran out and I thought no big deal I will just run to the store and get it refilled (just like with my HP).
Summary: I was very impressed with the overall speed and clarity of the Epson 835. I found though the way it handles paper both printing and the auto doc feeder are not reliable. The paper tray is very quirky, if you have not meticulously inserted the paper in the paper tray it will pickup extra paper, Be...
Summary: as a printer / scanner goes, it's ok. the document feeder is questionable, not perfectly reliable, it's jammed a few times, and of course when it does, it doesen't save the 50 or 60 pages it already scanned, you just have to start all over from the first page again, of course the tech support will...
Summary: thought it would be better than it is- however it performs many functions like duplex printing and printing on cd's. the overall quality of the prints is as good an an INKJET can perform i guess. LASER QUALITY photos you won't find with this product unfortuneately.
Summary: I discovered that using any paper other than the Epson brand prints out very poor images. The scrapbooking/greeting card paper , ( which is the reason I purchased this product for) is not in stock anywhere..so Im stuck with a product I cant use until the paper I need becomes available..
Summary: I just installed the Artisan 835 on my home network, which also has 2 mac's (mini and laptop), iphone, AppleTV, Sony Bravia TV and Wii on it. Installation was easy but did require a call to Epson to troubleshoot an issue on the 2nd computer (it did not see the Fax wirelessly).
Summary: There are many oddities that actually limit how well you can use this printer "out of the box" despite the appearance from Epso's site and the box advertising that it can connect in multiple ways to every platform and OS - more on that later.
