Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth Just completed the setup and have used a few of the features. Total setup time from opening the box to first use was 55 minutes. The interface with the setup software, network, and Mac was seamless. The onscreen instructions are clear and had enough redundancy to keep me from doing something incorrect. Typically, in my past experience, there has always been some sort of set up glitch with any interfacing computer product...even if minor. There was no such event with this setup for which I am thankful

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Prints have a noticeable yellow color cast Prints of anything have a noticeable yellow color cast. I used the following Epson products and settings: "Value Photo Paper Glossy" paper and "Claria photo HD" ink; and, XP8500 set to "no color adjustment", "photo paper glossy", "high quality" , driver "2.62.00", and firmware "MD2816". Also, I use Adobe Lightroom set to "relative" intent and the "EPSON XP-8500 Photo Glossy" profile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from xp 8500 Great little "small" in one. Great scanner, suberb photo quality printing!!!
Date published: 2018-09-01
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too much trouble First 8500 had to go back. Printer blocked paper from going through. Would not print properly because cassette selection did not work. Replacement printer also blocked paper though I did get that to work after repairing to a degree. Much trouble with ink streaks. Difficulty with cassette selection because of screen not showing an OK icon. After all my tries I had one screen which showed an OK button. Attempts to get the printer working has used up all the ink cartridges. So far out of numerous attempts two photos only printed properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does everything I needed Colors look great, prints fast. Love the high capacity paper trays and the touch screen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up My 13 year old printer died, so I went looking for a replacement. The XP8500 had the features I wanted, especially the 6 ink colors for photo printing. The included setup sheet was useful; but I went to the web site and got more specifics there. I'd recommend that. Setup went flawlessly, although it takes a while. Almost 2 hours. Particularly if you download software and firmware updates. Smooth and quiet and takes less space in my armoire than the old one.
