Guide Review – Epson Artisan 800 All-in-One Inkjet Printer
This Artisan 800 is a multifunctional printer which offers a lot of features making it a great photo printer as well as a useful printer for small offices. In case you need a printer with more useful features, you can check out the Epson Artisan 810 all-in-one inkjet printer- a favorite printer of many people.
This Epson comes with a lot of photo-imaging software. There is one utility which allows you to convert your photos into line drawings (you know, with this feature, you can have your own coloring-book images). This Artisan 800 also allows you to directly print onto a DVD or a CD. You have no need to worry about its print quality, your images will look great on the DVD / CD and you will have no real difficulty using this feature. But remember that you cannot print onto just any DVD or CD that you want (look for these when going shopping in other to avoid a failed printing experience).
You will find it is not very hard to set up the Wifi and wired network, no matter that they are done via the software. But it is a bit inconvenience because you will be required to set up the function on all computers which are on your network. Two more disadvantages are that the duplexer is not built in and the manual duplexing does not work really well.
This Epson takes at least thirty seconds to warm up. I know this is quite slow but after this warming-up, the printer performs really fast. It takes just about 4 minutes for 10 PDF pages to come out (about 23 seconds / page).
About print quality, monochrome prints are excellent-looking with sharp blacks as well as little bleed. Colors which are on graphics pages are rich and warm. You may find that Claria inks won’t overwhelm cheap papers you try (you know, there are several inkjet inks that saturate the page as well as make it limp).
When you print a 4 x 6 photo on Epson’s Ultra Premium Photo Paper Glossy, it will come out with fantastic look. The colors will be nuanced and vivid. The image will be perfectly sharp. To be honest, if you need to print a brochure or some business documents (and anything else which requires perfect look), one of the most important things you should notice is the kind of paper. Try your best to choose the right one. Paper which is designed for inkjet printers will not give up as well as fall flat; while paper for laser ones will help your print jobs done on laser printers to shine.
