Epson Stylus 850

Consumer Democracy

  • Summary: Is a good colour inkjet printer for the price if high resolution colour printing is required. Offers better performance than a comparable HP printer. The choice of media is important, the more you pay for the media the better the end result.
  • Pros: very high resolution colour printing (1400 dpi)
  • Cons: too sophisticated printer driver

  • Excerpt: This opinion is on the standard Epson Stylus Colour 850 not the NE one (i understand that is the network version). Anyway, I have owned mine now for at least 2 years so I feel justified in voicing my opinion of it!
  • Pros: Reliability, Cheap Ink, Heavy Duty(ish)
  • Cons: Noise, Not that Fast

  • Excerpt: I bought my Epson Stylus 850 mid way during 1999. Then, it was one of the best printers around. Now, I think that it still is. I think that the print speed is good and quality is good too.

  • Excerpt: Epson Printers. Probably the most disappointing range of printers I have had the misfortune to use. As a company we use some 100 computers and printers through our head office network and I have to say that our experience of poor Epson product has been enlightening.

  • Excerpt: We use a printer a lot at home. It is on the go several times a day for various reasons and it takes some abuse. Originally we had an Epson Colour 600 that we bought several years ago and it did us just fine but when it packed up (as these things eventually do!
