Epson Expression Photo XP-950 Small-in-One® Printer
Epson XP 950 Expression Photo Printer
While not new to Epson printers, this latest purchase has the best print and features I have found in their product line. I had previously printed a photo that I have saved on my computer, with an Epson Workforce 2540, have to say, did not like the quality or color match at all, in fact rather dark and overly contrast. Purchased the Epson XP950 Expression Photo Printer, and hopeful as I was, my expectations were met and exceeded. Printed the same saved photo, same glossy photo paper as before, this photo is nothing short of perfect, excellent color match, clear and very crisp, better than commercial look, printed quickly and quietly, and I still had even one better output option to go. Next I scanned using the touch screen controls on the printer, love this feature, did not need to look at computer, got excellent results again. With essentially 3 paper outlets, this printer can be pre- loaded with the paper options you use most. Handles all professional paper weights. I printed my business cards, they have never looked better. Next I printed regular text on letter size regular paper, printed very fast and quietly too. On my network, response is nearly instant, can't wait to print from my phone. I am very pleased with this product from Epson, go Epson, best printer yet. Sorry for all the enthusiasm readers, I just hate a bad product, so got to shout out for a good one like this printer.

I bought this printer to print pictures and it seems to work well. I haven't had a chance to print from my ipad or iphone yet however, the ability for wireless printing is convenient. Printing of pictures are good.

I purchased a XP-950 at first I thought I was going to have problems with it printing pictures,
but I got a up date notice for windows 8.1. I down loaded this up grade and reloaded my XP-950, it how prints very well and very nice picture prints.

I had a very miserable time getting it to work... After calls to Epson it was found to be defective and a replacement was sent very quickly... I had less than a week to complete a 100 page text and picture project... This printer set up very quickly where the 1st one didn't...It did a fantastic job...And I like it..It does use a lot of ink..

I was looking for an all in one wi-fi enabled printer that would print photos bigger than 8x10. And once in a while scan something. I have used the scanner a few times for old photos with the results better than the local drugstore photo kiosk.
The photo printing is excellent I have yet to print anything larger than an 8x10 but what I have seen so far the quality is on par or better than the professional photo lab I have been using when using Epson Ultra Premium Glossy Photo paper. The only critique I can offer is that it tends to be very contrasty and black and white has a slight color shift, which I would expect from an inkjet with only one black ink.
Wi-fi was easy to set up and printing from another room is a snap, now my wife can print recipes from the kitchen.
I haven't tried to print from my smart phone remotely and probably won't since I shoot everything with a dslr and run it through Lightroom before printing.
I did try printing on a dvd only to find out that the dvd's I have are not the printable type (that was a big mess) I will get the proper dvd's and try again.
I would like to find out what the cost per print is but google hasn't found it yet.
It is hard to find local stores to replace the ink but I'm sure they will get caught up.

The printing quality is EXCELLENT... except, this is my 3rd replacement unit since my original purchase within 60-days.
The first unit was DOA. Second unit a piece of plastic showed up in the printer tray. Using the 3rd one now.
The CD/DVD load mechanism is flimsy at best and not well documented to use. Yes, I figured it out, but it is very fragile to use and the live screen procedures on what to do next on inserting a disc is unclear. The disk insertion process includes re-inserting the tray with the disc and "feels" very fragile as internally it is being "forced" in to a point where it can resume auto printing operation.
Overall I do not recommend his printer to anyone expecting an easy and reliable printer for doing discs. I have owned MANY Epson printers, and as recently the Artisan 837. In my opinion, this printer model needs to re-engineered!

I have always been very satisfied with all my Epson products. I especially like being able to print larger format on this printer as well as 4"x 6". I haven't had this printer very long, but I'm sure it will live up to all the others that I have enjoyed.
