Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality control Nothing but paper jam errors before I've even put paper in the printer. I've never been able to complete the setup. Epson support closes at 4pm so it's hard to get hold of them during their limited hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from REALLY NICE PRINTER I LOVE THE PRINTER, ITS ALL THAT I WANTED
Date published: 2022-08-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb photo quality, especially black & white I bought this printer about a month ago (as soon as it became available in the Northeastern U.S.) from Office Depot--not the first place you would think of for a photo printer, but at least they had it in stock. The price went up by $100 compared to what it was last winter when I tried to order it. So much for our new period of inflation and broken supply chains. Nevertheless, I already own an Epson ET-3600 for conventional printing, two HP network laser printers and an aging Canon Pixma Pro 9000, which uses 8 inks--and they are becoming very expensive. The Canon printer still produces superb color, but black & white is another story. I was hoping the ET-8550 would produce better B&W images, and so far I have not been disappointed. Having printed silver prints with my old Beseler 4x5 enlarger in the darkroom, I've found it impossible to get decent B&W prints on any inkjet printer. Until now. The ET-8580's output on (believe it or not) Costco's Kirkland glossy paper rivals anything I got out of my darkroom on conventional silver paper: blacks are black and gray scale to white is perfect. I have not yet tried matte paper, but I expect the results will be equally superb. With a minor density adjustment, I easily calibrated the ET-8550's output to match the Canon printer, which was initially calibrated to match 4-color offset printer results and my screen. This was an easy task compared to matching color in the darkroom--even with a darkroom color analyzer. At first, I thought the front door that opens when I print was a little silly. But I like the printer to be fully closed when in not in use. It can't catch dust when it's closed. The back tray for larger paper is OK for what I do. I haven't yet tried printing on both sides of ledger-based plain paper. This is something I would do only occasionally for print proofs. So far, so good! I'm pleased with the printer and the accessibility of the ink storage area, compared to the side-mounted ink vessels on the ET-3600. I have scanned images from old Kodachrome slides, 6x6 cm color and B&W positives and negatives, and 4x5 and 5x7 B&W negatives, all scanned on Epson photo scanners. The final output I get even from film more than 40 years old is amazing--easier and better than all the hours I spent in the darkroom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great printer for Stunning Color This printer really lives up to all the hype. Although it’s still relatively new, I’ve printed out some personal artwork on premium glossy photo paper and I can’t tell that it was not done professionally. My only cons about the printer would be, when doing borderless printing the excess ink is absorbed by the ink pads. Once the ink pads are full, the printer needs to be sent back to Epson to install new ones. That will probably cut down 95% of my borderless printing, but with a paper cutter I can trim the edges myself. Also, I have learned from reading other reviews that you want to use the printer as much as possible, because cleaning and aligning the printer heads takes a lot of ink. I love that the printer is wireless, so I can run it from my devices and my computers without a wired connection. I am still trying to get the feel of the Epson printer interface, as well as other features. However, overall I can say this will probably be the best printer I’ve ever owned, and probably the last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic quality, great software onboard, reliable ecotank Been using this for our small in-house photo printing service and couldn't be more pleased. The ecotank feature is simply the best, and the quality looks excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful printer and excellent customer service! Wonderful printer and excellent customer service! I had trouble with the 1st machine shipped, and the service representatives were extremely helpful in diagnosing the problem and figuring out a solution. Now the printer is set up and I'm producing very good photographs. This is the step up in home photography I've been waiting for since digital cameras!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best printer ever! I managed to find one still in stock during the pandemic at the old price. The resolution is amazing. But Epson has always had the best print heads. Add the larger format and the Eco tanks and you got a real game changer. But wait,, a scanner too, Nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but excellent Amazing print quality and construction
Date published: 2022-06-21
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Value Print quality is good, but would not expect less from an Epson printer. Scanning is easy, but not intuitive. Handles very thick (1.2mm) paper with ease and the print quality is just as good as on thinner papers. After just a few weeks of regular use, there was a paper misfeed - not a jam, but a misfeed - that damaged the output tray which no longer extends or retracts except for manually. Already have to find someplace to repair it under warranty and who knows how long that will take. Bottom line, value is nowhere near the price.
