Epson Stylus Photo 825 User Reviews

The Best Photos I Have Ever Seen
“Overall, the printer is rather affordable for the output. The pictures are top shelf and text is almost laser quality. It is well worth the money and puts out better pictures than any machine I have ever encountered. This replaces the Epson C82 as my favorite photo printer on the market.” – by E. Callaway

Great Epson PHOTO Printer
“This is a photo printer, so I have nothing to say about it’s ability to print text (that’s not why I purchased it). I printed a couple of scanned pictures and hel them to the originals and was amazed. I purchased this one to replace an Epson 785EPX, which has served me well this past year. With 5760 dpi-whoa!” – by Evelyn Rosado

Great photos
“We purchased this along with the Olympus Camedia D-550 3MP Digital Camera for our trip to Paris. We are thrilled with both. The camera took great photos (especially in night mode) and this printer makes them look 10 times better than they do on the computer screen. For anyone else who fell for the rebate offer, we use the camera in the higher quality 3X2 mode with a 128MB card and have been very satisfied with the quality of the photos…” – by A Customer

Beautiful prints, affordable price
“As far as papers go, I started out with hp 4×6 paper and it was abysmal!!!! Don’t ever buy it. Am now printing my 4×6’s on Kodak premium heavyweight glossy paper with exceptional results. Also love the Epson heavy matte paper, results in beautiful colors and rich, textured images. Even gives decent prints on normal letter paper, if you just want to print off some photos for fun.” – by “bre2001”

Great photo printer with a few design flaws
“Regardless, this is still a fantastic printer. Speed and quality more than make up for a few inconveniences, especially for the price. I did a good bit of shopping for a printer and this one seems to do everything well, and those with a digital camera considering the purchase of one of those tiny little photo printers that HP and Canon make should reconsider. This printer makes photos that are easily as good, plus allows you to do all the things a PC printer should do. I also like that you can make a variety of sets and sizes for your photos including immaculate 8 x 10’s.” – by Jeffrey R. Tilley Jr.

Epson Photo Printer Became Even Better with the 825
“The best printer on the market for photos but one thing to remember when you get this printer. The ink tanks that come with the printer are only 30% full, which won’t last you much. Many reviews say it sallows ink and yeah I have to agree but so does every other printer on the market. I have owned a cannon, epson, hp and a lexmark. Lexmark being the worst! I spend $30 for black, $30 for color on each, and $14 on 4 seperate ink tanks on the cannon. This Epson, the color tank is [item price] and the blank is [item price] on and less than $20 each at [the store]. The savings has just begun……If you want quality, get this printer. Even for plain text on plain paper it is best, just make sure you change the printer settings for regular paper and plain text. No going wrong with this printer.” – by A Customer

Another winner from Epson
“When I shut off High Speed printing for the 825, that’s when it became superior to the 750. Single direction printing and on Epson Premium glossy photo paper. It was just like a photograph. The 750 was close, but the 825 was it. This was what I expected out of the 825. If it didn’t do this, it would have gone back to the store. I’ve tried the RPM setting and it didn’t impress, though I’ve not had a chance to play with it. I don’t care what resolution I am printing at when not using the Resolution Performance Management setting as long as I get that photographic print quality. I have mine set to print at Best Photo for photo quality inkjet or better paper.” – by Classic Style Seeker
Rating: ★★★★★

Epson for Panorama Prints
“If you want to print panorama photos, Epson is the only game in town. The only question is which Epson model, almost all print on roll paper. To date I’ve printed single panoramas 8×70″, you can print as long as 129″ with Windows XP. Colors are very accurate, embedded text is sharp. The 825 is slooow, took 90 min. to print 70″ at highest quality, high speed (two-way). Roll paper (Epson is your only choice) cost 3X sheet paper.” – by A Customer

Solid printer with great photo quality
“I first got this printer when my cheap HP broke down after having it for 8 months. I had heard of the photo quality of epson, so I decided to buy one. I was impressed to say the least. It not only printed pictures well, but on glossy paper, I couldn’t tell the difference between regular developed pictures from wal-mart and my epson printer.” – by MICHAEL CHARLTON
