This unit was bought to replace a previous Epson (Artisan 800) that I wore out from printing (8 yrs) Church CD's. I was very disappointed to see that the "Quick Guide" book DID NOT contain any information on CD printing. The website instructions do not flow in a "user friendly" manner. Paper printing was fine, but the repetative steps to make multiple CD's is a product turn off. The Artisan CD method was better.

Seems good so far. Have experience with Epson printers.

Ink consumption is extreme
Superb print quality and functionality, but this printer eats ink. Once one cartridge is empty (after 10 pages max), you cannot print. It is infuriating to not be able to print a black text document only because one color cartridges is empty.
Also, when installing a new cartridge, get ready to spend 1/2 an hour doing up to 5 nozzle checks before it prints without skips.

I have received my 2nd XP-800 All in One and it is worse than the first one. It didn't want to load and now it print just like the first one. Would like to get another Epson, but don't know what to try.

Taking it back to the store
I purchased this XP-800 printer on Feb. 14, 2013 and it has done very well with letters. However, when I need it to print checks (either standard or wallet), Avery labels, or envelopes this printer is nothing but trouble. It does not matter which paper feed tray or slot I use, this device is basically useless. I now write checks and envelopes with a pen, and can only do labels one page at a time through the rear feed.
I have had good success with Epson printers in the past but this one has taken me over the edge. I will consult Consumer Reports and then buy something that has a good rating.

I'VE READ ALL THESE REVIEWS!
Having bought this Epson before, I do know personally' they make great printers. I am now ready to buy this XP-800 over the XP-600, mainly because of the sale price it offered, with a few dollars more, this is it! Weighing the Pros an Cons, the excellent features an speed has far outweigh the minor issues. All printers are not perfect, the only issue I have is hoping someday Epson can find a way to give consumers lower Ink costs for this model.

This computer goes thru ink like crazy, it does not feed paper thru the rear tray without running a blank piece of paper first, will not scan without ink and ink is on backorder. Worst printer we've ever had.

Epsom Xp-800 expression
So far I really like it. Printer set up was easy.Prints from my iPad as well as every thing else. Pictures come out as good as before with our old printer which was for pictures. I am very pleased with this printer.

First I loved it! Second the only complaint is the drawer that comes out to catch the paper should automatically come in. When you need to push it in it feels like you will break it will the tension against it. I'm not sure why you would make it automatically come out with it going back in. Other than that its an awesome and super fast all in one. Super fast install.
