Epson Expression Photo XP-850 Small-in-One® All-in-One Printer
Only had it two days but works as expected and was relatively easy to set up with wireless and Fax etc.
Only concern at this time is the small size of the six ink tanks, plus the extremely high price for such small cartridges! Now I understand why there are so many online ads for ink tank systems to replace the cartridges. Time will dictate how much of a concern this turns out to be.

Epson XP 850
While I like its compact design, it is much slower and noisier than the Artisan 837 it replaced. The overall quality is lacking in comparison to its predecessor.

Prints great when it works
I love the quality of the printing, but I am NOT impressed with the quality of the printer itself. I use this printer to print large 8x10 photographs and am impressed with the quality of the photos, but often times the printer just stops working correctly. I have had to turn in this model for warranty replacement several times now. The print heads get clogged and cleaning them only uses up a LOT of expensive ink and a lot of times just makes the problem worse. The only remedy I have had after going through two complete sets of ink trying to clean the print heads is to get a replacement printer. This is frustrating because that is down time without a printer and the fact that there is only a one year warranty on the printer means the next time this happens (and I am sure it will because it has happened several times now) I will be out of warranty.

Great CD pinter!
SO far this printer has worked great for me in all areas. I have mostly used it for general printing, CD case printing and printing directly on CD's I am impressed with how quick it prints and the quality is good. It does not seem to use as much ink as I am used to. I have only printed a couple pictures but they printed nicely as well and the quality is good.

I really like this printer it is my 5th Epson Photo printer. It does a very nice job printing CD/DVD disks and photographs. The only thing I am disappointed by is the simple fact the neither the drawer or panel drop/retract on their own I have to manually push the drawer back in. If a motor pushes it out, then why can't the motor pull it back. It seems to be unhappy with the almost forced push back in. Other than this I Love it and have recommended it several times already.

Everything is as I had hoped, from copying to wireless printing from smart phones other computers in the house to printing envelopes etc. We greatly enjoy the ease of use. The only drawback so far is it is still such a new product, nobody sells ink cartridges except Epson online so you have to plan ahead to get a supply ready, you cannot run to the store to get more while in the middle of a project.

I ordered this printer because my old printer wouldn't work with windows 8.1. What I got was a pleasent suprise. This printer was easy to set up and program. It prints great and I did 4x6 and 8x10 photos and I got great compliments on the quality of my photos and finishing. I would recomend this printer to everyone.

A fantastic product XP-850
Have been using if for over 2 months and it is a perfect work horse. Mostly used to print pictures, I have been sending pictures on oversea travels directly from my phone or laptop to the printer for the family to enjoy without any problems. At home is has been a workhorse with no problems what so ever. Buy the high capacity ink and you will not have any ink problems for a while. Highly recommended.

Printer Great / Ink Can't buy in multi Packs
This is my 4th Epson printer and I love the quality of the pictures. Installed easy, Prints quickly & easy to use. The INK is not sold in any store like STAPLES but you can get it on the web sites. You also can't buy the 277XL in multi packs even from EPSON??? I recomend this printer but would erge Epson to get the ink out to the local stores on the shelfs to keep harmony in the EPSON family. I hope this helps and none of the small problems should stop you from buying this printer.
