Epson Expression Photo XP-950 Small-in-One® Printer
Just got my 6th Epson printer. This one's a multifunction unit, XP-950 which I wanted for general use in printing, scanning and copying documents and for printing my photographs . I've used Epson printers for photos for some time and have had mostly good results over the years. This unit seems to do a fine job on my pictures for me. I hope it lasts as long as the Epson unit it replaced, a CX-7800.

Pluses & Minuses
Pluses: Overal operation is very good. Very easy wireless set-up using Windows 7. Good photo printing quality. Good scanner performance. Love printing 11x17 photos! Although, paper handling is a little cumbersome.
Minuses: Ink capacity is poor, even when using the 277xl cartridges. Ink is expensive and is not avaialble locally (Office Max, Best Buy, etc.) I am having problems with print quality when ink levels are low, but, not low enough for the printer to call for a new cartridge. And, there is no apparent way to force the printer to change a cartridge.
I may have been better off purchasing a laser all-in-one and a dedicated photo printer. The XP-950 replaced an Artisan 850 with which I was very happy.

My use is mainly for printing photographs.
I have not used this machine for scanning or copying, only printing.
For printing documents it is fine. For printing photographs it has to be the most clumsy set up procedure I have ever seen. Too complicated to go into here! I purchased it because it has six cartridges, so when the print is finally made the colours are excellent. But what a struggle getting there. My old R220 (also six cartridges) used on my old windows computer was so much easier to set up.
So if you don't need to print colour photos it's probably a good buy.

Excellent product and professional quality photos!
I purchased the XP-950 to mainly print sports, nature, and family photos. The Epson name and overall quality did not let me down. The price for the printer and photo paper will save me hundreds of dollars per year.
Thank You Epson for a job well done!

Very efficient printer. Pleased with the text and image output. Pictures print well and colors are vivid. Somewhat noisier than previous Artisan. Easy to set up and use.

Great replacement for my RX-680
After many thousands of photo printing and printed DVD's, my RX-680 gave up the ghost. I researched other printers, but kept coming back to the Epson Expression Photo XP-950 and finally ordered it. It arrived earlier than expected, and right out of the box I was pleased with it. The XP-950 setup was flawless, and quick. It took just a few minutes to figure all the functions and even to print some test pictures and DVD's. All the prints and DVD's were excellent, extremely sharp and clear. What more can I say? It is just a great printer so far.

Two weeks in and have not yet succeeded in printing photo from computer, which is half the reason for purchase. Have had good results copying old photos, but have not yet tried "correcting" or "restoring." Basic printing of text seems okay (well I should hope so!). So annoyed at having to print my own instruction manual; oh, but you say it is online? yes, and the "scroll" was replaced by the "codex" for good reason. This is my fifth Epson, second one with six inks. Yes, I'm a Mac user.

I just replaced another Epson Printer (which lasted 10 years). I wasn't sure if I would like the 4-in-1 and worried that the picture quality wouldn't be as good as one dedicated to printing photos. I was very happy to see that the quality is fantastic. It was easy to set up and use. I am very hopeful it will last as long as my last printer did! I love Epson products and would recommend them to anyone.

Epson Expression Photo XP-950
Professional quality print with easy set up. Had to buy USB cable separately. Didn't have to buy ink yet but read that ink was hard to buy in stores. Overall, Excellent printer! A must printer to have if looking for professional quality prints.
