Expert review by:

Epson Artisan 800

 

All-in-one printers have gotten a bad rap. Sure, they can print, scan, copy, and even fax, but usually their talents are a mile wide and an inch deep.

Excellent print quality. Quiet and fast. Moderate ink cost. Built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet

Standalone printing displays and outputs JPEG only. Cannot print text from usable black cartridge if any color cartridge needs replacement

Flexible printing options, built-in networking, and scanning and faxing capabilities-plus fun extras like coloring book pages and greeting card options-make the Artisan 800 a true jack-of-all-trades.

When a device tries to be all things to all people, it usually winds up satisfying no one. Most all-in-one printers, for example, are good for lightweight office tasks, but they make lousy photo printers. Epson's Artisan 800 is much better than that:...

Excellent photo printer; supports wired or wireless Ethernet; good quality scanner; useful touch-screen interface

Not the best inkjet document printer; some plastic parts are flimsy; requires expensive ink

Most all-in-one printers make too many compromises; the Artisan 800 makes almost none

The Epson Artisan 800 produces impressive color prints, photos, and text documents, and it outpaces the competition in almost all of our speed tests. We're impressed by its performance, but hesitate to recommend this printer based on the poor build...

Prints high-quality color photos and documents; industry topping output speed; small footprint; integrated CD drive for custom prints

Extremely buggy software constantly disrupts work flow; flimsy plastic output tray; delicate input tray prone to paper jams

Artisan 800

 

Epson's Artisan 800 color inkjet multifunction printer has many tempting photo features. It's expensive--and not quite perfect--but it's still worth considering, especially for serious shutterbugs.

Very fast; easy touchscreen controls Prints on CD/DVD media; inks are cheap

Expensive; mediocre plain-paper quality Documentation could be more helpful

Most of the manuals are good, but I'll never understand why Epson buries the parts diagram in the troubleshooting section of the HTML-based user guide. A few of the Artisan 800's features aren't covered anywhere. And although automatic duplexing...

All-in-ones (AIOs) that could serve in the dual role as home and home office printer were once rare. Now they're more the rule than the exception—at least at the Epson Artisan 800's price level ($299.99 direct). The key question is no longer whether...

Fast. High-quality photos. Prints and scans over network. Prints on discs. Ethernet and Wi-Fi. Standalone fax and copier

Subpar text quality. Low paper capacity

Suitable for home and light-duty home office use, the Epson Artisan 800 is a little weak on text quality but strong on features and photo quality.

Epson Artisan 800 Multifunction Printer

 

Epson is one of the best-known names in inkjet printers; many home offices have one, and their Artisan multifunction line is quite popular. So a new model in this category is always welcome, but does the latest one live up to the company's reputation?...

I would like to add that I had no problem whatsoever connecting the printer to my HP desktop PC. It took me approximately 45 minutes from the time that I unboxed the printer until the time that I installed the software and began making some test...

Review: Epson Artisan 800 multifunction device

 

The Epson Artisan 800 makes perfect sense for those looking primarily for a photo printer, copier and scanner. Its plain paper print quality isn't great, but absolutely fine for personal and casual use, and its fully functioning fax machine and network...

The device has two paper trays, one for holding up to 120 sheets of plain paper as large as 8.5 by 14 inches, and one for either 4-by-6 or 5-by-7 photo paper. You can choose between printing snapshots and printing regular documents without going to the...

Epson Artisan 800 Printer Review

 

I'm not one to find all-in-one printers very sexy. I have had a slew of them over my lifetime. Mostly HPs and more recently Canon which did do a good job of printing, scanning, and copying just fine – minus the few paper jams here and there and some...

Great design with practical touschreen interface. Well rounded feature set. Quality and speedy prints. Wireless printing from Macs and PCs on the same network was a breeze. Software is included with full programs that worked for both PC and Mac

Flimsy paper-tray and lengthy software install

The Epson Artisan 800 is everything you would want in a printer. It’s is not only great looking but it works well too. It sports an innovative touchscreen interface that is easy to use and look at it – it’s not at all frustrating to use by having to...

The premium-priced Artisan 800 all-in-one printer delivers just about every feature you could want for personal or SOHO use.

Packed with features; intuitive control panel; stunning photo output; fast print times; easy wireless setup

Pricey; bulky

The Artisan 800 isn’t cheap, but Epson ups the value quotient by including a complete set of full, standard-capacity color ink cartridges and a full, high-capacity black ink cartridge, plus a spare high-capacity black cartridge and a sample printable...
