Epson Artisan 800 Reviews

CNET reviews the Epson Artisan 800 and writes;
“We’re also very impressed with the Artisan 800’s capability to produce solid images across a variety of media materials and sizes. We printed our stock image on 20 pound plain paper and Epson’s own premium glossy photo paper at both 8.5 by 11 inches as well as 4 by 6 inches. Each time, the output quality displayed solid lines, clear pictures, and bright colors.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Printercomparison reviews the Epson Artisan 800 and writes;
“Normal black and white document prints were good; no smudging or faint letters. I did find that the print speeds seemed to be slightly exaggerated. When I test in draft mode the Artisan 800 printed five pages of full text in about 20 seconds and 22 pages of full text per minute but in normal mode it printed one full page of text in about 11 seconds, five pages in about 35 seconds and 10 pages of full text in a minute.”

PCAdvisor reviews the Epson Artisan 800 and writes;
“The Epson Artisan 800 uses six dye-based inks (black, cyan, light cyan, yellow, magenta, and light magenta in individual tanks), to print great looking photographs. Prints of our picnic colour photograph test file showed no visible dots, great detail, and near perfect colour matching.”
Rating: ★★★½☆ reviews the Epson Artisan 800 and writes;
“Colors on graphics pages were warm and rich, and somehow the Claria inks used by the Artisan didn’t overwhelm the cheap paper I tried (some inkjet inks saturate the page and make it limp). A 4×6 photo, printed on a sample of Epson’s Ultra Premium Photo Paper Glossy, looked fantastic; the colors were vivid and nuanced, and the image was perfectly sharp. “
Rating: ★★★★½

PCMag reviews the Epson Artisan 800 and writes;
“Photos were almost uniformly superb. One photo even showed details in a light area that almost every other printer I’ve ever tested missed. The only flaw worth mentioning was a slight tint in monochrome output, which obviously would matter only if you print monochrome photos. For color photos, the output is better than you would expect from your local drugstore.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Macworld reviews the Epson Artisan 800 and writes;
“Plain paper test times were fast, with a single page taking about 13 seconds and a 10-page Word document taking only 1 minute, 22 seconds to complete. Copying a photograph onto photo paper worked very well, with excellent color reproduction and just a little loss of depth and clarity of the original photo.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Computershopper reviews the Epson Artisan 800 and writes;
“Output quality is also strong. Text printed on plain inkjet paper was well-formed, with no sign of breakup, though close inspection revealed it didn’t have quite the darkness of laser-printed text. Color graphics printed on plain paper using the driver’s Text and Photo mode showed no banding in solid areas, though separation between gradient fill levels were nonexistent above 75 percent. Copies were clean and accurate, though slightly more washed out than the originals.”
Rating: ★★★★½

PCWorld reviews the Epson Artisan 800 and writes;
“The Artisan 800 makes perfect sense for those looking primarily for a photo printer, copier and scanner. Its plain paper print quality isn’t great, but absolutely fine for personal and casual use, and its fully functioning fax machine and network connection options are nice to have features.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Digitaltrends reviews the Epson Artisan 800 and writes;
“The scanner element of the Artisan 800 boasts an impressive set of features, including 48-bit color depth and optical resolution of up to 4,800 dpi, but it’s not equipped to scan film negatives or slides. You’ll need to be patient when scanning photos, but the results are worth it.”

One Of The Best All-In-One Printers – Ever, | Rating: ★★★★★
“The Epson Artisan 800 Wireless Photo All-In-One Printer should be nicknamed the All-In-Wonderful. It does everything I need it to do and everything I can foresee ever needing done with a printer. It can print, copy, scan and fax either wired or wirelessly (networked or WiFi). It can print directly onto a CD or DVD and produce beautifully colored photographs in a variety of sizes. “ – by Tap ‘n Arts Dance Studio

EA800PAIOPB, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“Is a very nice printer, with so many useful features. my advice is make sure you read the manual. Nobody is that knowledgeable that figure out every single aspect of a new technology at once. But this one item is ready to be used out of the box for simple printing more advance features and the built in menu in the printer’s screen requires you to read the manual. “ – by Ana H. C. Smith

Wonderful machine, | Rating: ★★★★★
“This is the latest in a long line of Epsons that I’ve had and the best yet. Tried a 4×6 print, looks like an actual store bought print. Networked without a problem, and the sheet feeder works perfectly. Scans, prints, faxes, copies, all as advertised. You can’t go wrong with this one. “ – by culturevulture

GREAT AIO PRINTER, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I have always been a HP user and was looking for a new HP when I came upon this Epson. I purchased it based on some favorable reviews and the fact I was looking for a low profile AIO unit. So far this unit has performed without error and makes great color prints in quick time. It is streamlined, good looking and the touch panel is easy to follow.” – by J. Moore

Great printer, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“It faxes easily. Prints nice photos. Makes copies. I have not tried every feature yet. I do think the paper tray is a little flimsy and hope with heavy use will not break.” – by Andrew Bernstein

Love it!, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I love my new printer! It prints Spectacularly! Wow… Everything was easy to set up and put together. Epson really put a lot of effort with the packing of the printer and the cartridges, etc. I was impressed. But, what impressed me more is how this printer prints! Really beautiful photos. Crisp and clear. CLEAN – no streaks or weird colors.” – by *rose*

An excellent printer that works well, except the fax, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“This printer is a breeze to set up on a network and actually works well from both a wired PC, a wireless Windows laptop, and a Mac laptop. Print quality is good. Scanning works fine over the network. CD labels print flawlessly. The card reader works fine over the network also. I haven’t had any of the problems others have complained about.” – by Buster Brindle
