Worst Printer I ever ownedPosted .
I thought this would be an excellent printer since it has 6 color and one black cartridge. Ink is expensive and print quality is disappointing. I use Windows Vista with Microsoft Digital Imaging Pro Software. Often the color quality is grainy and blotchy. In addition there is often a black extension past the end of the picture that looks like an appendage off the print. Now for copying and scanning, every image has a large black streak across it. Often letters are distorted when printing text from Word. They look like there is a thin line cut through the letters. Replacement of ink is very expensive and doesn't seem to last very long before it must be replaced. See picture for latest scan of a graduation program. Every scan and copy has this stripe no matter whether the document is placed on the platter or run through the document feeder.No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Excellent So FarPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
I had a couple of old cheap HP printers that barely got over 100 pages before the $30 (each) cartridges had to be replaced. So I was looking for something with excellent photo capabilities and much better ink usage. I got this Artisan 810 which is normally a $299 listed printer for $169 at Best Buy. The photo quality is phenomenal especially compared to other printers that I've had. Network WIFI setup was easy and works great. I get good performance as well. Th other features like FAX, SCAN and COPY are great. Nice to have a 20 page input for fax or scan. Black text pages aren't the fastest unless you change configuration to print "fast economy", then it prints very quickly. Of course at that point, the black is lighter (economy)... wish it had a "fast" with a little darker print. The color photo print is amazingly fast for printing photos when compared to other printers. Scan is reasonably fast as well. I'm very impressed with this printer and its performed even beyond what I was expecting. BTW... All six colors can be replaced individually which saves some money. Its rated at close to 500 pages for standard cartridges and 850 for high capacity. The standard cartridges run close to $75. So its much, much better than my old printer. Not as good as some competitors like the Kodak printers. But I'm happy with the pages/cartridge. But, using it for awhile will give me actual feel for usage. However, the photo prints especially on Epson paper is outstanding.

Best Photo Printer, not so good document prints.Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
I bought this to replace a 10 year old HP Professional printer which started printing weird colors, but I'll get to that later. The Artisan 810 arrived quickly and the setup was a breeze -- every computer in the house was up and running wirelessly within an hour. I really didn't mind about the 'flimsy tray' and I personally thought the built quality was top-notch. It does make some noise when the printer initiates, but what inkjet printer doesn't? The sound was actually a lot more pleasant than three of my HPs. Photo prints are the best I've seen so far coming from an inkjet printer and I was truly amazed by the quality. The prints looked very professional and lab-like and the ink dries instantly, whereas with my HP, I'd have to set them out on a table overnight for it to dry. The scanner is another amazing feat; it scans fast and stays true to the original, the reproduced colors are vibrant and texts/logos are sharp. Also, images are well laid out even at lower resolutions and best in high. But here's the disappointment (comparing to my older HP printers): although photos and scans are exceptional but the everyday printing such as documents are just below par. The texts are not very sharp; colors are bland and faded; at 'Best' mode, the outcome barely compared to my HP at 'Normal' setting – and this was all printed on regular everyday fax/copy paper. Regarding the HP 990cse Professional printer: I decided to buy another fresh pack of ink and it started printing normally again. I found out that the inks that were in there had expired, and the pack I bought after that to replace it had ALSO expired. The newer ink cartridges (recently purchased again!) had brought my old HP back to life again! So all in all, I will be using the Epson for scanning, copying and ultimately -- photo printing (this is where HP cannot match) and I'll be using the HP for regular 'document' prints -- where Epson cannot match.

YES NO MAYBE?Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
This Printer Is Great!!! I LOVED IT EVER SINCE I PRINTED THE FIRST PHOTOS!!! the wireless is a plus for me, there are two seperate trays, one for envelopes and photopaper and other for regular sized paper. Touch Screen is a little flimsy but if you're careful this printer is DEFINITELY for u (keep in mind i've got 2 lil bros at home n i still bought this). The features are awesome but the fast draft printing could be better...sometimes it's just too light. The CD print tray hasn't been used but i've pulled it in and out and it looks promising. Built in memory card reader is great and it displays the pic on the scrn before u need to print. The color cartrides may be seperate cuz producers thought that it'd b nice to only switch the one's u need but when one after the other starts running out you'll get tired of running to the store again and again especially if u're printing and no stores open, so it's good to have extra at hand ALWAYS. Other than that get information at the epson site and i recommend this (btw it's a lil spread out in a wide sort of size so i hope u can put it somewhere). I've still to try out many of the features...there's just so much in there! it's awesome!

Nice Printer but DIFFICULT to set up!Posted .No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Recently purchased this printer after my old HP stopped printing. I was drawn to this printer for a few reasons: great sales price of $179, Wi-Fi capable, quality of print, fancy front LED screen, and it is feature rich. Unfortunately, my love affair with this printer ended after countless, and I mean countless hours of futille attempts to set it up on my network. First issue - not a biggie - I had to download all of the software from the Epson website as the supplied CD did not have drivers for Windows 7. I followed the instructions and had the printer connected to my network with no effort. Installation of the drivers/software was repeated numeorus times, having to uninstall the software after each unsucesful install attempt. Finally got the printer set up on one computer, but could never get all of the printer features to work. Could print, but could not scan. Never tried the fax feature. I really liked the features on this printer, particularly the print direct to CD feature (you have to purchase CDs with printable top). Also, the front tray will hold 2 types of media at the same time, such as 4" x 6" photo paper as well as letter paper. A few things I did not like: the front output tray was thin multi-pieces of plastic and to me seemed quite flimsy. Secondly, the neat LED screen can be positioned to different angles, and has a release button to allow back in place. I had a concern with someone pushing down on the LED screen and possibly breaking the positioning bracket. Also - the print time was exceptionally long for a printer of this price range. I never got the printer fully set up on the network, which defeated the reasoning for having a Wi-Fi printer in the first place. Be warned Epson customer service has bankers hours - so if you want to speak to a rep, you will have to do so during the normal work week hours of 8-6. With no weekend customer service, your options for help are indeed limited. Regretfully, I had to take this Epson Printer back and purchased the printer I originally planned to purchase - the Canon Pixma 860. I will add, the Canon set up was a breeze, did not take long to have 3 different computers, all with different versions of Windows (Win 7, Vista and XP) up and running and printing wirelessly on my network. Based on photos printed from both of these printers, our family judged the Canon to produce the best quality photos - with less print time.

The Epson Artisan 810 is a great printer!Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
Though I have had the printer for only one day, I have managed to exercise every feature of the printer except for the fax functions. Everything works great. I did find one problem which isn't difficult to remedy. If you choose to print photographs, be sure to turn off the "high speed printing" feature in the advanced section of the computer's print setup page, or, as another buyer complained, you will see horizontal lines on your photograph. It seems to me that Epson shouldn't have enabled high-speed photo printing by default. With high-speed photo printing turned on, this printer manages to print an 8" X 10" photograph in mere seconds. Unfortunately, the print quality suffers too much to make it useable. I own mostly Hewlett Packard and Epson printers. This makes my third Epson CD print capable printer. Both of the previous Epsons did a poor to barely fair job of properly saturating the ink on the printable cd's, and that was after a lot of tweaking, however, the Epson Artisan 810 did a WONDERFUL job on both the clear/silver surfaced and the white surfaced printable CDs - no tweaking!. I printed about 4 8" X 10" photographs using the "Best" print mode and Epson's premium glossy photo paper. After all of my printing, I still do not see any noticable change on the ink level display. With the exception of my first photograph being printed in "high speed" mode, this printer has performed flawlessly. It is certainly the fastest Epson printer I've owned to date. I highly recommend it. A friend who watched over my installation and testing will be purchasing one tommorow.

Amazing print quality for an ink based printerPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
I must admit my bias to laser printers. I was looking for a color laser, but the only one that Best Buy has is not an all-in-one. We also were looking for a standalone photo printer, and occasionally need a scanner/copier. My wife and I were shopping and the Epson rep happened to be there that day and showed us the features. While I was dubious of the Epson skew, I was just grateful that someone at Best Buy acknowledged our existence. However, this printer did seem to have all of the right features and the sample printouts and photos looked crisp. It would save money overall to get this all-in-one than a color laser and separate photo printer and scanner. So, we gave it a shot. The photo printing has been every bit as crisp as I could have ever hoped for. We ran a few samples and they were dead-on qualitywise. I honestly wouldn't be able to know it wasn't from a photo lab. As far as color prints on normal copy paper, they came out nicely on a recent school project for my kids and dried quickly too. For thoroughness, I also ran some document feeds and flatbed scans and was impressed by the crispness. The major complaint I have is the copy paper and photo paper trays seem extremely flimsy. With three young boys, they are in an off-limits restriction because the trays seem like they'll break by looking at them wrong. Maybe they're sturdier than they appear and feel, but they bow and sway like crazy and I don't want to take that chance. A lesser complaint is the noise when it's warming up (and cooling down). While it's not all that loud, the noise is quite obnoxious sounding. I didn't think the wireless would matter because we've always hooked up the printers to the computers, but since it's now 2 rooms over from the computer because we don't have room on the desk, I realize how wonderful it is. It also was a snap to share amongst the various computers in the house because of the wireless. While we'll still use our old B&W laser for most of our printing (due to ink cost), I couldn't be happier with the color print quality and overall features. With all of our kids' school projects, this will get a LOT of use in the years ahead!

Can't be beatPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
I purchased the Artisan 810 about a month ago. I couldn't be happier with a printer that would cost twice as much. The photos I print on Epson's Premium Gloss come out with such clarity and marvelous color that I would never have them printed by anyone else. Prints full page print jobs extremely fast. The touch screen feature is fantastic. Printing envelopes is easy and reliable. I have used up one black ink cartridge since my purchase and now have notices that two of the color ink cartridges are low. I have used this printer daily and share it with my wife's computer. I think the ink lasts long enough when you consider the amount of printing you do. I consider the price of the ink cartridges to be worth the money. I have had Canon, HP Color LaserJet, Lexmark and an Epson Stylus printers. The 810 is the Best Buy and stands far above these printers.
