Customer Reviews:

  • ALMOST PERFECT !!- BUT VERY GOOD !!
    I am in the graphic design field and am very critical of inferior quality.
    I was never a big fan of ANY all in one because they never did any one feature really well.

    This is the first one that incorporates all the features I was looking for:
    Flatbed and document fed Scanner
    Color Fax
    Wireless networkable
    Real Photo Quality
    Fast Speed
    CD / DVD Direct Printing
    Card Reader
    Direct from camera printing
    Copier
    Auto Duplexing (additional duplexer required)
    Easy to use display

    After running this through it's paces I can tell you this is the best AIO I have ever seen.

    Pros:
    Great styling
    Smaller Footprint than most AOI printers
    Quality touch screen display - only displays keys relevent to the feature you are using. Makes it very easy for less computer savy users.
    Faily Quiet
    Print Speed, even in highest quality photo is very good
    Photo quality is best I have seen in an AIO and as good as most dedicated photo printers.
    Scanner is very good - unless your needs require a VERY HIGH END DEDICATED SCANNER this will be more than good enough.
    Auto doc feed works perfect- never any jams.
    Never had a jam anywhee.
    Bought the optional duplexing attachment - no issue
    Wireless networking works perfectly with my laptop, my desktop is hooked up via USB.
    FAx is fast and high quality
    NO MAJOR COMPLAINTS


    CONS:
    Auto duplexer should havebeen included, not very clear from the box or ads that it was to be an additional purchase.
    Ink could last longer, seems like ink goes a little fast (good quality though)
    Price of ink could be cheaper - I'd buy the high capacity inks, but they should be cheaper as well.
    Paper trays are a little flimsey, but I have never had a problem with them.
    Dust and fingerprints show constantly- prepare to be cleaning it often if you like to keep things clean.


    Like I said, I think this is the best AIO Available.
    They raised the bar for Canon and HP.
    AS WITH ANY PRINTER - THE INK / PAPER PRICES ARE THE PROBLEM.
    THE INKS ARE NOT THAT BAD ON THIS, GIVEN THE QUALITY YOU GET.
    I'D BUY THIS AGAIN IN A HEARTBEAT, AND I PAID $300 WHEN IS FIRST CAME OUT.

  • Very high cost of INK
    I can say no more this machine cost a mint to use very disappointing!!!!!!!!!!!!! It will pay to just buy another and let this one go yo the trash heap....more info
  • Works like a Champ!
    Excellent device, works as advertised and set-up is easy. Only drawback is that the ink tanks are small and the replacements are expensive....more info
  • Pretty Printer, but too many paper jams
    Goods: Pretty Printer, if this matters to you, it looks good on your desktop. Wireless networking is great, and set up reasonably easy (takes about 15 mins or so) - proves really useful in a multi computer household. Scan and Copy functions work well, and again, are great to do over a network.

    Bads: Lots of paper jams - poor paper handling means it often picks up 2 or 3 or 8 sheets at the same time. Very poor paper tray design for a modern machine. Expensive ink carts = pricey per page. go for replacement carts - Epson's own are crazy priced, but then all the others are similar in this respect.

    My printer broke due to severe paper jam. got a replacement from Epson very quickly, but that was Dead on Arrival. 3rd one is now working fine, but I'm dreading more jams.

    Recommend it to a friend? - not really. This is my 5th Epson printer, but might try another brand for desktop if Epson cant get simple no-jam letter size paper handling right in this day-and-age. Fix that, and its a very attractive good machine....more info
  • An excellent printer that works well, except the fax
    This printer is a breeze to set up on a network and actually works well from both a wired PC, a wireless Windows laptop, and a Mac laptop. Print quality is good. Scanning works fine over the network. CD labels print flawlessly. The card reader works fine over the network also. I haven't had any of the problems others have complained about.

    I would give this printer 5 stars, but am taking a star off because the fax is somewhat kludgy. Sadly, I still have to send a lot of faxes and this printer doesn't handle redial very elegantly. The printer scans in all of the pages, then starts faxing. If a fax is rejected (except for a busy signal), there is no option to resend it--you have to rescan the entire job and try again....more info
  • Very high cost of printing
    I was pleased with the print quality, convenience and user interface. However, the cost of printing is very high. If you buy 6 high capacity cartridges at Epson web site it will cost you almost $100, each cartridge is about $16, the black one is around $18.
    I have printed less than 100 pages for sure: it includes a dozen of 4x6 pictures and the rest is the text pages w/o much graphics. It means that the average cost of each print exceeds $1 per page!!!
    My old Canon i960 was a lot better in this respect. If I new that in advance I would buy Canon....more info
  • 99.9% Wonderful
    It's a great All In One. The only flaw I have had with it is the Driver. I use Windows Vista and each time the computer is restarted I have to down load the driver, every time. That takes about 8-10 minutes each time. EPSON support tried to offer help but claim it's a Vista flaw. Still hoping to find a solution. My older EPSON was good too and worked fine with Vista. Go figure? Other than that frustration this printer is great and I recommend it. ...more info
  • Excellent AIO printer! No more HP for me!!!!
    I went back and forth for days trying to figure out the best AIO printer for my needs. I have struggled with a HP Officejet 7210 for 1.5 years and finally got tired of the paper jams and the document feeder misfeeds. I am not very productive when I have to stand over the machine to make sure an 8 page fax goes thru. Enough about the HP...
    This Epson Artisan 800 is awesome. First, it looks amazing; hands down the most beautiful AIO on the market. What's even better is the image quality. I have kept around an older Canon printer because it printed photos much better that my old HP Officejet (dammit, mentioned it again, sorry!); but this Epson's photo quality easily surpasses the Canon on both plain an glossy paper. I was a bit worried about reports of the printhead clogging with ink but, so far, I have not experience this (2 weeks of use). The best part for me is that I have printed over 100 pages so far and faxed nearly 50 pages and have not had one jam or misfeed! I love this thing. Oh, and also, it is fast and I love the touchscreen control pad!
    Thanks, S. Pendleton...more info
  • Outstanding Network Software
    If installing on a network, read the "network instillation guide" carefully before proceeding. You may choose wireless or a wired mode. For best transmission of data my IT network engineer son in law recommended running an ethernet cable to my wireless router but I bet the wireless mode will work fine too. You can select custom install or install all software and I use both on 6 computers with a variety of operating systems and connected both wireless and wired to the network. The drivers installed flawlessly on these operating systems, Leopard, XP home, XP pro, and Vista home Premium. Just printed some photos from iphoto and all I can say is wow! Have not checked out all functions yet but hoping for positive results.

    ...more info
  • Very pricey ink used WAY TOO FAST
    I bought this printer in January. Since then, I've replaced all the print cartridges twice, the black 3 times (using the high-capacity). At over $100 per change, this is a very expensive printer. It won't print if any one cartridge is low. The print head has needed cleaning more than once. I don't print documents every day, and I've probably printed a total of about 50 pages since January. BE WARNED! It's cheaper to pay up front for a laser printer!...more info
  • Outstand for Pictures
    I've had the printer for about a week now and have seen its strengths and weaknesses. I gave it 5 stars only for its Photo abilities.

    PROS:
    The Photos this printer makes are the best I've ever seen... Simply amazing. However, I had to use the Epson Ultra Premium Glossy paper as my other printer papers streaked or bleed and were unacceptable. Others may have had success with other papers... I think someone said something about Costco photo paper working well. The speed was Fantastic under 20 seconds for an 8 x 10! What took 5 minutes using the "Photo RMP - Max dpi" setting was done in seconds with the "Photo" setting... and I couldn't tell the difference, even with a magnifying glass (My Photoshop file was 300dpi to begin with). Also, to achieve a great photo, the printer settings MUST BE ACCURATE... I had to spend quite some time to dial in the best setting, which is "Paper type - Ultra Premium Glossy", "Photo RPM (Max dpi)" or "Photo" are identical to me. Color Controls/Color Mode "EPSON Vivid".

    Another cool feature is the "Borderless" option that it actually printed my 8x10 photo with no white border. It was perfect all the way to the very edge of the paper. This is convenient for those that wish to frame photos and not deal with sizing issues during printing.

    Wireless works great. It won't be hard to set up if you follow the instructions.

    CONS
    Noisy... Clickety Clack... And takes a long time to start printing. I'm keeping my HP printer to do my text printing, and using the Artisan 800 as my photo printer...Did I say how amazing the photos were! And since I can now put the 800 anywhere with wireless, why not! Another CON is that it eats ink big time. My one 8x10 with a big blue sky took what looked like 1/4 of my light Cyan cartridge on standard size cartridge...that photo just cost me $2.50 (The Hi-Capacity cartridges from Epson are only 60% larger, and the costs would be the same per photo).

    The paper tray was designed by fools. Not sure how a company like Epson signed off on that one. It must be removed entirely to reload, it's flimsy and requires fiddling with unintuitive paper guides that are not user friendly.

    IN CONCLUSION
    The Artisan 800 ROCKS with photos! But get an HP if you want a good workhorse for everything else. (I have an older HP 6110 All-In-One for my home office). ...more info
  • Ink and USB problems
    I have had this printer 4 months and have rarely used it (3 5x8 prints and less than 20 text pages in color). It prints beautifully on good paper and the color is accurate for a consumer-grade printer. The first page out takes quite a while, but it's worth the wait. The user interface is second to none. I bought it because I liked the interface and was looking for an inexpensive printer/copier for my art studio.

    BEWARE! My first problem with this printer showed up when I plugged my USB key into it to try to quickly print a picture off the key. It erased my entire 8GB USB key instantly (I have some experience in data recovery and it was completely GONE). Fortunately most of the data had been backed up, but I did lose a few important files. For kicks I tried another drive and it erased that one just as quick. Not the type of undocumented 'feature' that I like to find in any device.

    INK... A WORD OF CAUTION: I went to print a few days ago and my print monitor gave me a notice stating that I was nearly out of ink in every color (after 3 photos and 20 text pages). I contacted Epson and they stated that the ink will all dry out if I leave it on all the time (!). Isn't this supposed to be a network printer with a fax? Did the engineers not figure out that they should have the ink parked after a set period of time when the printer is not printing? I have dozens of Canon inkjets that I oversee and most of them are rarely used, but the ink in those never does this. If I decide to stick with this printer, at this rate my cost per page is going to be over $3!

    Buy this printer if you can power it down regularly, appreciate a user-friendly interface, are looking for good print quality and have plenty of money for ink. Don't buy this printer if you plan to leave it on all the time (network printing, fax, etc.). I give it three stars for the amazing interface and good looks (I'm a sucker for beauty - functionally it's only good for 1.5 stars IMHO).

  • More heat than light...
    I bought this product late 2008 based on positive reviews here on Amazon. My main criteria were three: a) stable software drivers (after horrible experiences with HP), b) fast first-page time, c) good scan quality.

    Where I've been really disappointed is the first-page time. I'm a fairly light user, not printing hundreds of pages, but when I print (for example) a map to head out the door, I want to get it and go. Once in a while I really do have that experience. But more frequently, the unit goes through 30-75 seconds of whirring and coughing before it does anything useful. I suspect it's warming up and priming the ink (which by the way seems to last a ridiculously small number of pages).

    On the plus side, I have not had any software driver problems, and the scanner seems reasonable....more info
  • Upgrading firmware kills it
    I was able to set this printer up with no problem. Being the geek that I am, I decided to download and install the latest firmware. It was simple with the provided link in the start menu.

    However, once it installs the printer disappears. I couldn't find it in printer list and couldn't figure out how to add it back.

    Had to reinstall the drivers that came with it. It will first uninstall what is there and then you install like you were installing for the first time....more info
  • Wonderful printer but with some consumer perception issues
    The Artisan 800 printer is AMAZING. It does everything advertised and then some. That being said I think it does have a few consumer perception issues.

    1)The paper tray works every time. However the knobs and levers on the tray feel flimsy and cheap. It's the type of tray I would expect to see on a low-end printer, not on a high-end model.

    2)The wired Ethernet port only supports 10/100mbit. This is Epson's flagship all-in-one product. It can print 38 pages per minute in black and white, and does Wi-Fi. Adding 1gbit Ethernet capability to the Ethernet port may not make the printer go any faster. However, I want to feel as if I'm keeping the printer as busy as possible.

    3)The printer supports high capacity cartridges. As a consumer what does that mean to me? The best I can tell the color cartridges cost $5.00 more and I must buy them from the Epson website. There is very little detail as to why I would want to pay more for the cartridge.

    4)Some of adverting slicks have fine print that says the optional duplexer only works for Macintosh. The manual implies it works for Windows as well. To be honest I'm not sure which is correct.

    5)Some people complain that the printer will crop off images when printing photos. After a little research the cause seems to be the type of camera. Not all cameras' use the same aspect ratio. Some use the 4:3 standard and others use 3:2 standard. If you use 4x6 card stock, then a 4:3 image will have parts of it cropped off. This should be better explained in the manual.

  • A Great Printer
    It took me a little while to get the wireless up and running, but after I did it works fine.

    Be aware that when it is connected via a network you cannot use the buttons on the device to initiate a scan to the computer. Those options only work via USB. If you want to scan a document, you must initiate it from the computer....more info

  • Finicky about paper, quality is not on par with my Canon
    This printer only seems to print well on Epson brand paper. I have tried to use several other premium and fine art brands with disappointing results. The print quality is good but it is no better than my 5 year old Canon. I have found that I am using my Canon again for most prints and the 800 is now a glorified copy machine. ...more info
  • Great Printer
    Great printer and by following the instructions for first time setup it was simple. I run this printer over a wireless network. However I switched providers and wireless hubs forcing an update to my wireless network. That began a series of problems to reconfigure the wireless settings that was/is complicated....more info
  • Epson is irresponsible to call this a Fax machine!
    This machine is really not a general purpose fax machine, since not only can you not send it files to fax, but you can't save faxes to disk or memory. If there is inadequate paper in its skimpy paper tray to print out a fax being received, then you've lost the information.

    Another, albeit specialized, drawback is that the scanner doesn't handle transparencies, even though most other newer Epson scanners do.

    There was a problem with Epson products early on in that the scanners were essentially stand-alone machines. Then Epson added a twain driver & scan facility to handle the deficiencies of its scanners. There is no reason why this company--which has an excellent support record heretofore--should not provide both fax and transparency support for this machine.

    Finally, as others have noted, there is no manual input tray in the Artisan series, so to print an envelope, you have to take out the paper, adjust the guides & put the envelope in the main paper tray. The secondary tray could easily be modified to handle envelopes; so that for those folks not needing "snapshots", the secondary tray would still serve a useful function.

    In summary, the only thing the Artisan 800 is good for is as a scanner & a photo printer. Without the ability to save lost pages either in memory or on a disk and with such a limited paper tray, this product is not functional as a fax receiver. Epson, whose products I have always trusted, has put this product on the market without proper preparation. If one wants the photo printing & scanning capabilities of this unit, one is better off with the Artisan 700. ...more info
  • Yes it can scan to network
    My experience with this product started out rough. Ordered it for quick delivery, and initial unit failed on startup. Epson sent replacement and it worked this time - out of box new failure was very frustrating, but going now.

    Have seen some reviews that said you cannot scan to your PC over the network. That is just not true - I just did it over my wireless network. Now you can't just walk up and insert and press the scan to PC or PDF buttons on the device, BUT, if you stick the document into the Auto doc feeder, and then from your desk tell it to scan, it will scan it just fine. For a home office, not to bad since you can pickup the originals from the scan tray later. In an office yes i agree it's a pain to place, go back to desk, scan, go back, and pickup. Epson should get a clue and add ability to scan to an email or PDF from the control panel, but you know what, for a $250 device, i'm not complaining - after all can I really expect a $250 device to do everything a $5000 network office grade copier/scanner/fax in my office to do? I don't think so.

    Networking wireless setup is a little tricky - Epson could make that easier - especially if you do not have the printer close to the wireless router when you do setup - fortunately I do enough networking i was able to get through it. If you're a network novice then definitely connect the printer to your wireless router with the supplied network cable for initial wireless setup - don't try the more advanced options - they are tricky. Once connected to my Wi-Fi at home, works like a champ.

    Did a test print of a 4x6 print from my digital SLR's memory card and it came out quickly and nicely.

    Overall, decent recovery from Epson on the 2nd unit i got - 4 days ago I was not saying nice things about them due to out of box failure of initial purchase. ...more info
  • Wireless doesn't work
    I purchased this mainly for the wireless feature, and this only works about 1 in 10 tries. Epson support hasn't been too helpful. If I use the 800 with the USB, no problems. When I try to print with the wireless, it works ok when the 800 is 1 foot from my Linksys (I only tried this twice, and it was 2 for 2); when I move the 800 farther away, it mostly doesn't work. Ans when it doesn't work, it usually will print half a page, then stop. On the PC, I get a 'failed print' message, but the 800 screen will still say 'printing.' When I try to cancel on the 800, it will say 'canceling' for 5 minutes or more. And the scanning is even less reliable. Very disappointing.
    Also, installing was difficult because I kept getting errors. The problem was that I had to remove all other scanners from my computer. This is bad because I wanted to keep a second attached, because it has high resolution with negatives. But I had to delete that second scanner to get the 800 installed.

  • Meets all of my needs for an All in 1with photo quality prints
    I have an Epson 2200, and Epson R300 also. I've owned earlier Epson photo printers, too. I also have an Epson Perfection 2450 scanner.

    The Artisan 800 is a great printer. It's much faster for mixed output than the R300, and clogs less often. It probably uses the same or less ink per page. Print quality is a bit better than the R300, and the same bit better again than the 2200. Colors in the red and yellow range just keep getting better and better with Epson.

    I worried that the non-straight paper path would be a problem (as it is on some HPs), but so far it has been no trouble. It's nice to load from the front.

    I print lots of DVD labels for photo disks from my photography, and it's great not having to find the DVD tray as with the R300.

    The scanner seems as good as my 2450, and with one less device on the desk. The paper feed is great - and was what I was waiting for from Epson. I added the dual-sided attachment. Keep in mind that adds a few inches in depth, so if you are putting this in a cabinet, it might not fit the depth with that attachment. Two sided output is great though, and works fine.

    I am attached via USB. I have not tried Ethernet or Wireless, and understand you can't print through multiple interfaces at the same time, but have to choose when you set up the printer. You lose some features if you aren't using USB I believe. However, it's certainly more flexible to have a network device without the computer being on, so I'm sure many will use it that way.

    This is a heavy printer, which you only notice when you install it. But just to say, it feels substantial, like the 2200. It's probably the most attractive printer sitting on the desk that I've ever seen.

    The screen is a touchscreen, and tilts up for easy viewing. It's very easy to use, to set up, and to control from the printer (such as scan to print).

    I have had no problems, and would recommend this printer highly. There are really no negatives that I've run into. I've had it for about 8 months. ...more info
  • Mistake to buy
    Epson Artisan 800 Wireless Photo All-in-One Printer (Black)(C11CA29201)

    I purchased the printer six months ago and I am very disappointed. I was replacing a Canon photo printer and was used to better performance. The Epson printer eats ink very fast. I have probably used more than twice the ink used by my previous printer. The Epson jams and feeds multiple sheets when lighter 20 pound paper is used it also has not accepted heavier papers over 60 pound. The printer requires an additional purchase to duplex with out reinserting the paper. Printing is wireless but the scanner requires a USB cable. It is slow on start up. I am replacing it with a similar Canon this week. ...more info
  • EPSON ARTISAN 700 - ALL IN ONE PRINTER
    I've been using HEWLETT-PACKARD inkjet printers for years. I replaced their model 5610 ALL IN ONE model with the EPSON ARTISAN 700 model. The EPSON is head & shoulders above anything that I have ever used. It seems to use more ink than I'd like which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. To get 2 sided printing YOU need to invest another $29.95 for a DUPLEXER [model C12C802522]. This gives you complete automatic 2 sided printing. The paper feed can appear to create problems if you don't load the paper cassette just right. This is a precision piece of equipment which requires that ALL manuals BE READ! For additional help, EPSON has knowledgeable technical help screens & live technicians available. The model 700 DOES NOT come with FAXING capabilities. If you need that you'll have to get the EPSON ARTISAN 800. I think they have a winner here!...more info
  • Epson Artisan 800
    Great printer at an even better price! Will do everything as advertised especially the part about working as a wireless network printer. Have not found anything that I haven't liked yet!...more info
  • Great
    Great printer. I don't use the fax very often but like the ability to have it if needed. Printed photos are beautiful, vibrant colors, and sharp as a pin. Will add the duplex so that I can print both sides of documents. Would recommend this to anyone....more info
  • Fantastic Home Printer!
    It was time to upgrade my home all in one printer. My old one, a Canon, was starting to have problems. I had an Epson photo printer years ago, and decided to go back to Epson. I read the many reviews on the internet about the different Epson all in ones, and decided to get the Epson Artisan 800.

    I ordered it from Amazon.com, and with prime membership, it arrived in two days as promised. The fold out color setup guide was easy to follow, and in about 25 minutes, my printer was up and running. No hitches, no problems at all. My first test print page was quite good. My first color photo was impressive. I did use the sample Epson Ultra Premium Photo Paper Glossy and it came out great. You also get some coupons for buying photo paper at the Epson Store.

    The printer is sleek looking and relatively low profile (smaller than the Canon all in one I had). It looks great on my desk in my office.

    I like the fact that the paper (and photo paper) are stored in paper tray at front bottom of printer, rather than sticking up in the back and in sight. Both are stored, so I can choose to print on paper or photo without switching the paper out for photo paper.

    My immediate impression is very positive, and hopefully, I won't have any problems down the road.

  • Print? Won't even set up!
    First, Epson support via email is atrocious. I don't believe they even read my email, just clicked a random "script" button since the second answer had nothing to do with my problem.
    Second, the documentation is grossly incorrect, and you need to read three different documents to complete wireless setup. Assuming you successfully complete it. My PC could not see it either ethernet or USB. I completely reconfigured my wireless network so I could "wire" it and managed to reach it from my Mac. But despite completing the setup program, it still doesn't print.
    Hired someone to deal with this since I have now wasted about 8 hours.
    They configured it directly from the printer, assigned a permanent lease on the IP address, ensured all the workgroup names were the same and so forth. He can ping it. I can't print to it - says it's busy. Turned if off. Reset the wireless router and repeated configuration. Four paid hours later, we both gave up.
    Maybe it's a great printer, but judging from the reviews it isn't doing that so well either. I'll never know because it doesn't freakin print from PC or Mac, wired, wireless or USB. Epson support is so incompetent, they cannot read basic email, so I'm not going to bother with that anymore.
    This is going back to Amazon. I am so disappointed with my Epson experience, I don't ever see myself buying another product.
    Fortunately, my Amazon experience has always been excellent, so I am hoping for no problems there.
    Bottom line, the printer was a great idea that totally failed due to lack of quality control, accurate documentation, UI testing and product support. Those are corporate values, not printer attributes....more info
  • Amazing Printer for the Price
    So far everything about this printer has been top notch. The printer worked flawlessly out of the box. Easy setup and easy to print with. The included software is not bloatware like my last HP 7280 which was CRAP! The print quality seems great, I've printed photos, made copies, printed pdf's and printed powerpoint presentation sheets all have been fast, good quality and quiet! I wanted to chime in my good experiences so far as it seems there are several people here who have had bad experiences. Get this printer and I don't think you will be disappointed, I am not!...more info
  • Clogs like most epson printers
    This printer suffers the same flaws as most epson printers. If you are a heavy printer, then you may not notice it, but with medium to occasional use the heads tend to clog easily unless you print quite often. Using the cleaning utility sometimes works, but wastes a lot of ink in the process. There are certainly more reliable options out there....more info
