Epson Expression Photo XP-850 Small-in-One

 

To a casual glance, the Epson Expression Photo XP-850 Small-in-One ($299.99 direct) seems almost identical to the Editors' Choice Epson Expression Premium XP-800 Small-in-One that we recently reviewed. Not only do the two models look alike, they share...

Simplex (one-sided) and duplex (two-sided) printing, scanning, copying, and faxing. Prints on discs. Ethernet. Wi-Fi

Below-par text and graphics quality. Low paper capacity

The Epson Expression Photo XP-850 Small-in-One inkjet MFP is a little weak on text and graphics quality, but what it lacks in output quality it makes up for with a long list of features.

Review: Epson Expression Photo XP-850 Small-in-One Printer

 

The Epson Expression Photo XP-850 lives up to its name with super-nice photos that print speedily. It also has well-priced inks and enough efficiency features to make it useful in a home office.

Great-looking photo output ; Automatic duplex printing and scanning

Washed-out color graphics on plain paper ; Clunky push-scan setup

Epson Expression Photo XP-850

 

Epson's Expression Photo XP-850 is a top-of-the-range, six colour all-in-one with all the extras, like CD/DVD print, duplex, fax and ADF.

Three paper feed sources ; Touch panel controls ; Unusually small footprint

Tray and display won’t auto-retract ; Much slower print than claims ; 100-sheet main paper tray

Sockets at the rear support USB, 10/100 Ethernet and phone line connection for the fax. Epson’s software bundle handles printing, scanning and faxing and there’s a three month trial of Corel Draw X6.

Epson Expression Photo XP-850 review - Versatile multi-function photo printer

 

High-quality photo-printer with additional office features

excellent photo output, Ethernet and wifi networking, scanner and fax

text quality could be improved, not very fast

There’s room for improvement in text quality, but the Expression Photo XP-850 will appeal to hobbyists and home workers who need high-quality photo output as well as features such as a fax machine and document feeder for office work. That combination...

Great Little Printer

 

There is a feature that automatically "opens" up the front exit tray and lifts the front display when printing. It would have been nice that when you turn off the printer that they would "close" back up instead of you having to close them manually.

Very high quality photo prints. The Wi-Fi worked the first time and hasn't missed a beat yet. It is a very small printer with a ton of features. The double sided printing is cool too. I got it on sale at a great price and don't regret the purchase at...

I'm only giving it 4 eggs due to the following. The paper trays take a little bit to get used to and they don't hold that much paper. The ink cartridges are a little hard to find so far

Works as advertised

 

Have had this unit only about 1 week. Limited usage so far but quality of output looks good. Sets up easily. Don\'t forget to order regular sized ink cartridges.
