Summary: I did quite alot of research looking for a printer that had an auto document feed and printed and scanned double sided. There were quite a few available but the Epson printer had a very small footprint, which suited me better. Looking at the reviews I wasn't sure as it had quite a number of negative reviews about the black ink cartridge...however I took the plunge and bought one from PC World who were selling it at about £80 less than amazon.
Summary: I chose this printer on reading Which Magazine review. I am very pleased with it so far but I have found that is a bit inkaholic. I t does everything it is supposed to do . No mechanical device is perfect but I certainly have no regrets in purchasing. , and would recommend to others.
Summary: The product is ,so far ,very good but the software supplied on the cd is difficult to use & was not supplied with any instructions as to how to use it. This proved very frustrating. The PDF manual was not much better & in my opinion is close to useless.
Summary: An easy to setup and use printer, upgraded from an Epson PX710W which has been a fine printer but a few weeks ago just failed to print anymore, event after much head cleaning and servicing. The scan to cloud feature is brilliant, as is the ease with which the printer can be integrated to Google cloud print. Epson Connect is easy to set up via the built in web server - I am on Ubuntu so this too is a bonus. Epson have strong driver support for non-windows users.
Motorised output tray that doesn't automatically retract....?

Summary: I just purchased this unit which overall I am very pleased with. The one thing I find very odd though is that the motorised control panel and output tray opens automatically but will not retract, having to be closed manually. I have read various reviews on the web that say this is normal but I can't quite believe it I'm afraid. The tray is clearly motorised and could retract after printing and removal of print job just as easily as it opens.
Excerpt: L'imprimante multifonction EPSON XP-800 est intéressante cependant le manuel papier est plus que juste et imprécis. Quant au manuel numérique Obligation de le télécharger, de même que l'installateur sur Mac ce qui ralentit l'opération. Le support de sortie est avancé électriquement par l'imprimante mais peut-il faire de même pour rentrer ?
