Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good printer It prints high quality 4x6 photo prints, but on an 8x10 I have horizontal stripes about an 1inch wide running the whole length of the paper. No stripes when I print a document. It is good that I mainly print 4x6 photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very conpact but very powerful. I purchased this model through B&H photo and I was very pleased on all features including set up which allowed me to plugin direct w/USB port. So far a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, Christmas present...love it, my old Epson was 14 years old and getting tired...this is smaller and had more features.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from difficult to set up I bought this to replace another Epson Printer that would no longer work properly.I found that doing a nozzle check and head alignment still did not allow the printing of good photos (horizontal lines in photos). I will try again to straighten this out and if I am unable to do so, will be returning the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small & compact with Great quality. I bought this to replace my Artisan 1400. I like its compactness, and the fact that i can also copy and scan. HOWEVER, it is a hog on ink. I have never gone thru so much ink with any printer I have ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth Just completed the setup and have used a few of the features. Total setup time from opening the box to first use was 55 minutes. The interface with the setup software, network, and Mac was seamless. The onscreen instructions are clear and had enough redundancy to keep me from doing something incorrect. Typically, in my past experience, there has always been some sort of set up glitch with any interfacing computer product...even if minor. There was no such event with this setup for which I am thankful

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Prints have a noticeable yellow color cast Prints of anything have a noticeable yellow color cast. I used the following Epson products and settings: "Value Photo Paper Glossy" paper and "Claria photo HD" ink; and, XP8500 set to "no color adjustment", "photo paper glossy", "high quality" , driver "2.62.00", and firmware "MD2816". Also, I use Adobe Lightroom set to "relative" intent and the "EPSON XP-8500 Photo Glossy" profile.
