Epson Expression Photo XP-850 Small-in-One Printer
I love everything about this printer. I got it to replace an older Epson that I have had for years. I would want no other brand for printing photos. I am amazed at the quality of photos I am printing with this new one. The color is outstanding. I also print directly onto CD/DVD labels and this printer does a great job. I would definitely recommend this printer to everyone.

Very happy with XP850 model
I love my printer - it's the second one of Epson printers I've had. The other was a 810 model and worked great, but then a gear went & couldn't be fixed. The 850 is a smaller unit but works just as well. LOVE IT. I print pictures, make CD covers, do documents - quality is great.

RE: XP-850 printer
I have had problems with understanding some online (Guide) photo instructions. I have a Mac and my internet, wireless set up was confirmed as successful. Unfortunately, I can not get the printer to recognize the computer commands? I still do not know how to get the upper paper tray, #1, to be utilized upon demand? Unfortunately, the instructions and pop-up menu's are much clearer for Windows than they are for Mac.

Epson Expression Photo XP-850
I LOVE this printer. It has been a god-send to me since I had lots of trouble with my previous printer (previous printer was NOT an Epson). I love the quality and ease of use.

poor color balance
This printer does not get accurate color, especially black, gray and green in photos. Photos otherwise sharp and bright. A shame Epson can't get this problem fixed. Otherwise good printer for home office.

Overall the printer is nice. Prints good quality photos and text. I will say that I like the new auto paper tray because I like to keep it closed so dust and other debris Dosn't get into it when not being used. The rear paper feed is convenient but I do wish it could do more than 1 sheet at a time. Also the app on apple Dosn't allow you to use it at will. Only the PC software does. I also like the stationary ink setup on the artisan better than the one on the head. I think creating a removable head would be the best thing to do for another option. That way you can work with it if there are problems or clogs. The waste ink absorbers should be bigger. More accessible to remove than the way they are know. When printing two sided lined paper it should allow duplex And how dark you want the lines. Over all the printer works good but there is always room for improvement. Also I have noticed over the years with epson printers they always seem to print photos darker than they are. I also own canon and they are almost perfect color match. The epsons are not perfect but they are a very impressive machine. They do a lot for a smaller printer size. And the ink prices for oem ink should come down. I have been using aftermarket ink for over 8 years know and it costs nothing to print and the photos come out better. The oem ink isn't as great as you would think. You do have to get good ink not any ink is good. Well that's it for know. Thanks for reading hope it helped someone. I am a very knowledgable person when it comes to printer have a lot of different ones and compare them all to each other.

The software was easy to install and the WiFi connection works great. The print is slow even in Text mode, the photo's look good on photo paper. The Paper Load Cassette 2 is Not User Friendly and cheaply made, and the slide out paper return gets in the way. The CD/DVD only prints to the disc it does Not read or write. The Ink caps must be stored for next replacement and are messy. The ink cartridges are small and don't last long.

Epson Expression 850 Review
The printer creates good photos but the ink cartridges which came with the unit did not last long.The replacement ink 277/277xl cartridges are hard to find locally as most stores don't even show the Epson xp850 in their database; only the xp800. Everybody says to go online to find the cartridges. Epson sells them but they are expensive. I need the 277y,277lm and the 277lc and I cannot find them in stores
