Finally dual sided copying!

I have owned the Epson Artisan 800 and various older Epson printers for many years. I have been patiently waiting for Epson to make an equivalent printer to the Artisan series but with a duplexing ADF so that dual sided documents could be easily copied. After literally 3+ years, Epson has finally done it with the Expression Photo XP-850. It retains all of the features of the Artisan series, and adds duplex ADF (automatic document feeder) and several "cloud printing" features. For example, you can e-mail a photo to your printer's special e-mail address and have it printed. Fortunately, you can change the e-mail address from a machine-generated one to something easier to remember. This is great! Another nice feature is that you no longer have to manually extend the output tray -- it will automatically come out. However, you have to manually push it back in if you want to put it back. Upon reflection, I suppose it wouldn't be good if the tray retracted on its own with a printout not picked up. The CD tray is a separate tray like on some of the older Epson printers. You have to manually feed the tray into the printer and line up little arrows to make sure everything is lined up. It is not as elegant as on the Artisan series where it was an integrated part of the printer. One minor nit is that the printer software CD didn't support Windows 8. This wouldn't be a problem except that the version on Epson's website is missing the Abbeyy FineReader OCR software. Odd since this printer was released after the release of Windows 8. The printouts look excellent with the proper Epson paper, although I found text to be a little smeared, although it's barely noticeable. Epson is generous and provides two sheets of photo paper to try out. The printer also requires a bit of space on the right hand side of the printer (4 inches) if you want to use the ADF with legal size paper. One oddity about the ink cartridges -- they include a cap that you are supposed to use when removing the cartridges from the printer. Epson includes a little plastic Ziploc bag to store the caps in. The print alignment is still a manual process. The printer will print out an alignment sheet, and then the user must choose which image is the best aligned of four choices. Choosing can be a bit difficult if you don't have good eyesight as the images are quite similar. Other printer vendors use an automated approach where it prints out an alignment sheet, which is subsequently scanned to determine the proper alignment automatically. Overall, I'm very happy with this printer so far. It's fast, doesn't take up much room, and loaded with features.

I should have listened.

I've used Epson printers for my small business for 15 years. My last printer, the Artisan 725, lasted 5 years with high volume usage. I was sad when it died, but I knew it was time to replace it. It exceeded my expectations. I need a six-ink printer so I read reviews for all of the ones Epson sells. The reviews were mixed, but a lot of people were complaining about the XP-850 printing with lines or not recognizing cartridges, etc. Guess what? They were right! I've had this printer for two weeks and it's already printing with lines. The pics look horrible. I've gone through the maintenance cleaning, etc, so many times (wasting ink). Replacing ink was a pain too because the printer takes forever to recognize it. On top of that, you can't even find the ink in stores! I went to 7 different stores and it was nowhere to be found. You can only buy it online. That doesn't work for me. I can't believe what has happened to Epson. I expected more. I've returned my printer and purchased another brand at half the cost. It prints beautifully. Bye bye Epson. :(


Love the product but dislike Epson's constant reminder that I am not using "official Epson ink." As with most printer manufacturers, Epson wants to capture all business but does not have a price competitive ink product. Remove the automatic notification. I know that I bought non Epson ink but I also know that at 50% of Epson cost, it has worked well for the entire year that I've owned the printer.

6mo update

After having and using all of the features of this printer it is the best little printer I've ever used. I've noticed that a few reviews don't like how much ink it uses, but I have had no problems with it's usage. I'm guessing that most of the bad reviews are caused by the "first" ink cartridges that come with the printer. If they would just look at the ink number "277-I", which the "I" stands for initial. If they gave you full 277 or 277xl cartridges the printer would much more expensive to buy. I've have just changed from the "I" cartridges and my usage hasn't moved at all in two weeks of usage of the new cartridges. My only suggestion would be in the "monitor" software would be to add a percentage of use left along with the cartridge pic. Most everyone would like to know exactly when the need to change the cartridge or even a page count left number. This printer prints beautiful photos of any size and text/pics on regular paper is ok too. The double side prints is a great feature also. I've also used the CD print function and it works really well too. All in all it is a great printer. I've always liked Epson printers the best and this printer just sealed the deal.

Great printer, paper capacity too small

I was looking to buy an all-in-one printer that included CD printing and AirPrint. I was surprised how hard it was to find for any brand. This printer does it all. There is a rear slot for card stock. Which is a nice feature because my Artisan 810 didn't do card stock well (paper would jam). Tray 1 is for 4x6 or 5x7 photo paper only. Tray 2 is for regular paper up to legal-size. My only disappointment is the paper capacity in Tray 2, which is about 50. Significantly less than what I had with my previous Artison 810. The wireless network setup worked fine. To print on a CD you have to pull out a separate tray from the bottom, load the CD and then insert it into a slot above Tray 1. Scanning works fine within PhotoShop (after I ran the Epson Navigaror and Event Manager). Copying works fine but sometimes it takes the printer several minutes to warm up if I haven't used in awhile.

This One's a Lemon...Steer Clear

I've bought Epson printers for many years. I am a professional artist and use the printer quite a bit so I tend to run through them. When my Artisan printer died, this looked like a comparable model. Same line of inks (Claria), same number of cartridges. Problems started the first time I changed ink cartridges. I had to clean heads 4 times before it worked again. One cartridge would need cleaning but, when I'd clean the heads, that one would be OK, but another one would suddenly need cleaning. Whenever I put in a new cartridge, I never know if it's going to work. It says it installs correctly but then there's no ink that comes out. And, to top it all off, it doesn't print right. Some of my prints have thin white lines going across and no amount of head cleaning will fix it.


The XP-850 is a good scanner and printer for photos, text, and CD's. The colors are rich and the photos look great! There are only two cons to this printer (1) every time I print from the rear slot it pulls the page through without printing and pulls another sheet from the bottom tray and prints on it. Not very helpful when I want to use a special paper or labels. (2) it is awkward to have to pullout and insert the CD tray. The Artisan I previously used did it automatically with a button push.

Epson Small in One 850

I purchased this unit to scan family photos and documents and chose it because of its high resolution capabilities. . The unit is compact and sleek looking, the touchscreen is easy to see and responsive. My only disappointment is that the ADF does not scan two sides at the same time; it automatically pulls the document back through the scanner a second time. A simultaneous two-sided scan would make this unit just about perfect. I am still trying to see if I can set customized buttons on the unit's control panel or override the defaults built into the 6 preset scan buttons. Nice little unit.


I have the artison 800 series so I do not know if they have improved this with the new series...but the biggest frustration for us is that when one ink color runs out the printer will not print anything....even if what you're printing doesn't require that color...for instance...if you only need to print something in black and your yellow ink is out...the printer refuses to print. I feel this is a marketing ploy to make us buy more ink, which is where they make their money, in my opinion. I find that very frustrating and unfair to their customers. I will not buy another epson printer for this reason.


I use this unit mostly for printing photos and copying photos. It does great at both tasks. Because it has it's own screen, it can be used in stand-alone mode, but I still have the computer hooked up to it in case I want to copy something interesting from the computer. Photos can be printed in any sheet size.
