Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little printer The Epson photo printer is amazing!!! Its amazing how easy it is to use, from box to setup, to printing. This photo printer really gives you a bang for your buck. I love how easy it is to use and the quality is outstanding!! I no longer have to worry about quality or wasting time sending pictures else where to print. I love that it is wireless, makes setup and use so much easier! The fact I could install an app and print from my phone with no hassle, life saver. I'm so placed that Espon has made such a quality printer, they have made things so much easier! This is a review for the Epson Expression Photo XP-8500 All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A dream to set up, excellent quality! I found this to be probably the easiest setup I have ever had for a printer, and that was a pleasant surprise for me! Out of the box, just looked at the step by step instructions and followed with no issue at all. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow (And simple!),and I was able to complete within about 15 minutes. Actually the longest step was removing all the protective materials! Once I finished installing the ink and software (just a few of minutes of my time), I printed out my test paper, and it came out perfectly. I am impressed with the crisp, clean quality of my plain text recipes, and the colorful and bright photos are just what I had hoped for. All in all, with impressive quality and lightning fast setup, this should work well for most needs and for any level of technical ability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but gets the job done All-In-One printer that does not take up much space. Ideal for small spaces. Half the size of the other printer I own. This printer was easy to set up. I would suggest using plain paper for set up. It uses a few sheets of paper to complete. Easy to connect to Wi-fi. This printer comes with a CD to install, which I worried about since I own a laptop, but have no fear, the printer can be connected to your PC via USB (not included or noted on the box). But I noticed when I sent prints from my phone, no printer was listed. Download the apps necessary (such as Epson Connect/iPrint) to print wirelessly if you run into this issue. No issues after that. You can also assign an email address to your printer so you can print from anywhere! This printer requires several ink but they are reasonably priced. Expect high quality photos with no lines or smudges. I’ll be able to avoid trips to the store to print now! I like that the printer comes with different tray sizes, so I am not limited on what I can print. Overall, this printer is impressing, especially because of it’s size and the quality of prints!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Photo Dream I am an avid photo taker but printing is always a hassle. With this printer I am able to use the app to print directly from my phone or tablet which makes it a breeze! I am always using my IPhone to take photos and this takes out the effort of having to upload to my computer, save, and then print it. For me, the app is already a win! Set up was fairly simple as well. The directions are very clear so I'd say it took me about 30 minutes. I love the fact that it has 6 different ink cartridges so you only have to replace the color you run out of, genius. I am really in awe of all that this printer is capable of, from being Apple® AirPrint-enable to how fast it prints photos and documents. I think this printer is worth the price, it's all in one, compact, and really can get the job done from anywhere using Epson Connect. This is a review for the Epson Expression Photo XP-8500 All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very easy to use I have had a lot of printers in my time. It is a high quality printer, everything has its pros and cons.I don't have any kids but i can see how front panel could break due to children. It has alot of moving parts, its not the quietest and it takes a little bit of time to peel all secure stickers off that holds everything in place in transit. Over all on that part once that part is done and off to printer wonderland!! There are plenty of pros with this machine. Very easy to use. the set up with all my devices cell phone, dsp camera, Etc. The 1st thing i used was the scanner to prop an old photo to crop and print and it brought the new print to life. What a difference. the touch screen is easy to use and you really don't need a lot of experience to use. I wish screen was a little bigger. I have had no problems with it jamming. Over all i would i think the prints and ease of use it is a fantastic machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Petite, yet powerful! I was fortunate to be invited into a program that allowed me to beta test the Epson Expression XP-8500 All-in-One printer. After about a month of use, I have determined that it’s one of the best printers I’ve ever used. I found the setup to be easy-I was up and running in less than a half hour. My WIFI easily connected to this printer, making “computer-free” printing, a breeze. There’s an app you can use on your iPhone to print directly to the printer, which is what I did. An email address assigned by Epson to communicate with the printer, makes it possible to print from anywhere. The print quality was just as good as some professional printers, and I found the photo quality to be especially impressive. In addition to these benefits, this printer comes with an ink program, good for 2 years’ worth of replenishment. This is a great printer and I would recommend it to anyone. I received the Epson Expression XP-8500 All-in-One printer, free of charge, in exchange for this review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value, Great Quality This printer is fantastic. When I initially received it, I noticed that it did not include a USB cable to connect to my computer, and I feared that it would complicate setup. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to connect the printer to my network and update the firmware without ever having to do anything on my computer. The print quality is fantastic. I printed many photos from my phone with great results. The print came out very quickly, and had an excellent clarity. I also printed some photos taken with a DSLR. Printed at 8x10 the photos look phenomenal. This is a review for the Epson Expression Photo XP-8500 All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Amazing I am a huge scrapbook person. In the world of going digital and storing on the cloud, I still enjoy printed pictures that can be saved for memories. Memories of a lifetime should be printed with pride and quality. If printing solid quality pictures is your need, this printer is simply amazing. My primary work is in the IT field so setup was fairly seamless. About 35 minutes box to ready to use. If you are not trained this process, reading the directions is key. This printer uses 6 color cartridges versus the normal four. This contributes to the higher quality print yield. Connecting Wi-Fi and syncing the devices can be difficult on any device. This is not the exception. This process was timely and required some troubleshooting. Once set up, the printer easily interacts with any software that you will use. Any device connected to your WiFi has the ability to send to the printer. This is greatly convenient with photos stored on your phone. No download to the computer is required and saves some great time. As part of my testing, I printed several documents. Spreadsheets, letters, flyers, cards, and photos. I compare these pictures to my the same prints on my prior printer that was in the $50 cost range. The difference is astounding. Crisp, clean, more detailed prints. It didn’t matter what paper the print was on, the quality was superbly more noticeable. The printer comes with a higher price tag which may be a barrier to some. If you are looking for a higher quality print, it will be necessary to spend some more to achieve better quality. This printer provides a top of the line professional print within a reasonable budget for the quality you receive. I received the Expression Photo XP-8500 Small-in-One All-in-One Printer as a beta tester.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Printer This is a review for the Epson XP-8500 All-in-One Printer that I got to test out during the beta release of this product. I've had this printer for a week and have utilized it as my fundamental printer at home. It has been great thus far. Starting setup takes additional time than different printers because of the need to fill the ink tanks and after that charge the ink heads. This part takes around 30 minutes. The remote setup shouldn't take long either; I had to run up & down the stairs quite a few times to connect the printer to Wi-Fi. With everything taken into consideration, from removing the printer from the box to my first print took me around 45 minutes. The printer works incredible for shading, dark and white, or photograph prints. Given the tremendous volume to the ink tank plan, I don't have to stress over replenishing expensive ink cartridges. The printer accompanies 2 years of ink which is comparable to multiple sets of ink cartridges. Additionally the substitution ink cartridges are reasonably priced. Why didn't somebody think about this prior!! I don't have any stress when I need to print out many documents or photos. Remote printing works fantastic. I was able to add the printer to my network effortlessly. On my iPhone, I can utilize the Epson iPrint application to print work documents and school papers. Epson even has a feature called Epson Connect where they assign an email address that you can use to print photographs and documents on the printer from any gadget that has email from any location. Generally this printer gives remarkable incentives too and is an incredible printer for home & office utilization. Print quality is awesome and it prints and duplicates quick. The ink tanks are anything but difficult to fill and are cheap. Awesome printer!! This is a review for the Epson Expression Photo XP-8500 All-in-One Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.
