Space. Like money, it's one of those things you never really have enough of. You need a printer, a fax machine, a copier, and a scanner, and they all take up space.

But that doesn't have to be true. Epson offers a series of multifunction printers like this one that can do it all without taking up much more space than a traditional printer. Inkjet printing gives you high-quality printouts, but also crisp copies that don't have the problems thermal photocopiers sometimes have. The scanner lets you record your documents, and the fax portion even lets you send facsimiles of those documents, all in one compact unit.

You can even hook it up to your wired or wireless LAN for printer sharing that doesn't require your computer to be on all the time. Now, you know what you need much better than I can, but it costs less than four devices, uses less energy and space than four devices; this might be just what you need.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, well ballanced unit

Pros: As far as all-in-one's go, this is a very good unit. This is the first all-in-one that I personally have purchased, but I have used other units extensively. This is, by far, my favorite home office all-in-one that I have used--it has done everything I have asked of it well, and I have not missed having separate components.

The scanner is good--not a photo scanner's quality, but definitely better than average, and very good for office work. The document feeder works well for up to ~50 pages, and I have used it for several large and small jobs.

The printer is very good for office documents and above average for photographs for an office printer, but there is a noticeable gap to high end photo printers. Printing CD's and DVD's is pretty easy, and the quality is, again, pretty good.

The printing speed is a plus, and the networking options work fine. The touch screen is very intuitive, and its adjustable angle make it very easy to use from a standing or sitting position.

Cons: I sometimes go a while when I don't make a print, and the heads frequently need cleaning after this. That is pretty standard, but it is annoying. A color laser unit would serve this usage pattern much better since the toner doesn't dry out like inks, but the price point for those units kept them from being an option for me at the time I bought the Artisan 800.

Like everyone else has mentioned, the out-feed tray is flimsy, but I rarely have it out. When I do use it, it works just fine. The paper feed tray is also pretty flimsy, and this unit is DEFINITELY NOT a business class. I would not trust it for anything more than personal home office or family use.

The unit prefers premium inkjet paper to cheap copy paper, which adds a little to the cost of routine printing. The flip side is that every premium stock I have printed (premium photo paper, brochure stock, business cards, etc.) has worked very well, and Epson does a good job of matching print settings to stock type.

Other Thoughts: For those who are complaining about the unit drinking ink, disable the auto-maintenance features and you can greatly extend the life of the ink cartridges. This is the primary reason the color cartridges go so quickly if you are only printing B&W, or only printing pages one or two at a time.

I haven't extensively used the fax or front panel flash memory readers, but they seem to be in line with other units' capabilities. The large front panel is a plus if you print directly from memory cards.

If you are thinking of doing high end photography work with either the scanner or the printer, then you will be unhappy with the results. If, however, you are doing every-day office tasks and need the occasional good quality photo print (not excellent, but very good) then this unit would be a solid choice. I bought my unit soon after it came out, and I have never regretted the purchase. I would buy it again, and would definitely recommend it at this price.

3 out of 5 eggsGood design, very costly ink

Pros: Print quality is good, scanner and document feeder has worked well, nice looking design, many good features, display/control panel is wonderful. Not many complaints as far as design and features. One of few scanners I've used where the default scanner settings often produce a good quality image. PAPER IS FREE! Well, not really, but it will seem like it when you realize how much the ink costs.

Cons: Very expensive ink!!! Yeah, everybody knows inks are a rip-off on just about all printers but this goes beyond anything you might expect. Paper trays and the cover/document feeder are flimsy, not a show-stopper though.

Other Thoughts: The ink cost really hit home when I realized how much I've spent on ink the past few months and yet I've gone through less than two reams of paper during the same period. This product is cool looking and a pleasure to use. If you don't care about the cost of ink I recommend it.

1 out of 5 eggsCould not be any more disgusted with Epson!

Pros: Good quality printing, great CD printing capabilities, WiFi, good scanner.

Cons: We print B&W 90% of the time, but somehow the color cartridge ink levels slowly fall by themselves. Guess what? When ONE color runs short, this unit WILL NOT let you print anything in black or grayscale! I had to print a very important FedEx label a few days ago, and because magenta was low, it would not let me print in plain black. Epson has been sued over this, and I am convinced that if you print 100% B&W, your color ink levels will slowly fall. I dont think the ink levels are even being measured in the cartridges, I think that Epson has set some kind of timer set up for them instead. When they show as empty, there is probably a lot of ink in there.

Other Thoughts: Going to buy HP or something else with CD printing capability.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: all-in-one, very high printing quality for an inkjet;
robust scanner, makes copies;
very easy setup including the network;
user-friendly operation;
good build quality;
tons of advanced features for a fairly cheap gadget.
Oh, and looks fantastic on my desk...
Wireless tested fine, ran a few jobs, scan/print/fax. In my case printer sits next to wi-fi router, so no reason to go wireless.
What was most important for me - DVD/CD printing - and it is doing a terrific job at that - I am very pleased by results and think this is an excellent choice for printing on DVD/CD media; no need to hack a clumsy HP...

Cons: none to speak of -
I'm HAPPY with INK (see other thoughts), never had a jam, wireless works, etc. etc.

Other Thoughts: To negative reviewers - you are simply wrong, here's why:
a) INK INK INK - all manufacturers inks are a rip off and all printers of this level drink a fair amount. There are excellent solutions - I prefer a quality continuous feed system. Last time I stocked up, a 16 oz bottle of german ink was around 7-8 bucks. I stopped thinking about ink consumption a long time ago, more ink than one ever needs. Stop complaining and do your homework.
b) Quality and performance is terrific. If you got a damaged unit, there is no reason to give a negative grade. RMA... happens.
c) setup is simply a breeze. I suggest downloading latest software package off Epson website, no need to use a bit dated CD. Wireless starts with wired - says right so in the instructions which are VERY easy to follow.
Massive photo printing at home - why?!? The web services are way cheaper. And for pros and true pro quality there is a pro photo lab somewhere nearby. Occasionally, may be.
Study the options, it all works!

2 out of 5 eggsThe Ink Monster!

Pros: It works as advertised. Photo prints are very good in quality. Had it set up in wireless config on a Mac and everything worked as advertised with no fuss or bother.

After it warms up, it prints color pretty fast. The draft quality was quite good and it popped those out in about 10 seconds a page.

Cons: INK! It ate pretty much all the cartridges without printing. It goes through a pretty long warmup/cleaning process before the first print comes out. Well over a minute. Apparently, it uses in during this process so even printing one three line email was drawing down the ink on all cartridges. At $40 a pop for the color set this was just insane. You don't get much out of a set of cartridges regardless. Did a set of brochures and got less than 50 our of a set normal photo quality.

Other Thoughts: The ink factor outweighed any benefit from the pros by so much that I dumped the printer. Constantly getting the !INK LOW warning on such a low use machine clearly was on the wrong side of any cost/benefit ratio. So, for this reason, and this reason alone, I have to recommend against.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!!!

Pros: This is one of the best and coolest designed gadgets I have seen in a long time. Epson put a lot of thought into the design of this unit. There is a multitude of functions and set up is a breeze. Epson includes a full set of ink cartridges as well as an extra black. The interface is straight forward and easy to understand. Works very well on my home network with the wireless LAN set up. Prints are very clear and vibrant. All of that said, it is also fun to use and looks great to boot. Thank you Epson and Newegg.

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: The construction as mentioned before is pretty solid, but the automatic interface drop down is driven by plastic gears. All of the display models that I have seen in stores have been tripped out due to people forcing the display down. I was concerned about this because of my small children and there interface with it. There is a release button that activates the drop down and if forced it will strip the gears and render one of the coolest parts of this unit unusable. The unit will still work just fine, just not as cool. My resolve is to lock the door to the library so the chillins don't have access. Enjoy.

1 out of 5 eggsNice printer if you can afford the ink

Pros: Prints outstanding photo quality......reasonably fast

Cons: Eats ink. Even when it is not used the ink levels drop. I printed less than 6 photos on a set of cartridges that run about 40.00 I use draft mode on most text prints to save on ink. I would never recommend this printer unless inks are no issue for you, otherwise expect to pay rediculous amounts of money on ink. Also, makes lots of noises in preparing to print.

Other Thoughts: Dont change ink just because you get a low ink level warning. I printed over 20pages of black text before the ink actually ran out after the warning came

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent photo image quality, lots of features. Auto duplexer available direct from Epson for $30. Closeout, Artisan 810 is out now. 810 adds direct iphone printing and a built in duplexer.

Cons: Ink cartridges expensive, so far only staples online and epson online sell the high capacity 98 cartridges. Previous Epson photo printers were a bit of a hassle at times, I expect this one to be too. Canon easier to maintain, Epson much better pics. Ink expensive on both brands when printing photos.

Other Thoughts: I use this for printing pics and DVDs, for everyday printing I picked up a cheap monochrome laser. Bought it elsewhere on sale for a bit less. Turn off automatic head maintenance to save on ink. Best to print something that uses all colors at least once per week, preferably twice. So far so good, my third epson photo printer. Tried a Canon 1p4600 prints were not as good as Epsons.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh quality photo printer

Pros: great printer, easy set up instruction installation and set up to our wireless network was a snap. Love the two trays one for photo paper and one for regular or other choice. High quality photo archival ink that will last. Awesome quality scanner for an all in one. I personally love the touch screen and the built in card readers make it simple to print quickly from you card. Wireless connection makes printing a breeze and is quick to respond. Love the single color ink cartridges which means I only have to replace what I actual am out of. Great overall ease of use. Print speed is great.

Cons: cost of ink - however if you want high quality photo ink your gonna pay for the quality. The high capacity ink cartridges (with the exception of back) are only available directly from Epson - which I wish the were available in the stores.

Other Thoughts: I hear alot of people complaining about the ink usage by this printer and how quickly it runs through it - what you need to keep in mind is this ink is not your day to day printing ink - it's photo and archival quality. If you do alot of standard printing to paper consider a cheaper printer to help with cost of ink. Epson sells high capacity ink cartridges however only available direct from them. This a great starting printer for artist to play with. I've found a great passion for Epson printers and scanner - they have great dpi for scanning and printing. I have yet to have any issues with the printer that was not easily resolved and the printing quality is excellent. So if you want high quality photo prints this is an excellent choice, if you are looking for something to use for just day to day regular paper printing I suggest looking at other models as it will save you money in the ink department.
