    Epson Artisan 800 Multifunction Printer

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Epson is one of the best-known names in inkjet printers; many home offices have one, and their Artisan multifunction line is quite popular. So a new model in this category is always welcome, but does the latest one live up to the company's reputation? Keep reading to find out.


    AsEpson'snew flagship printer for 2008, theArtisan 800has a lot to live up to in terms of print quality, speed, and overall functionality. On the surface this beautiful-looking printer looks as though it will live up to this challenge, but I decided to get hands-on with this multifunction printer to see if its awesomely good looks were matched with equally impressive performance and features.

    Since 1975 Epson has been a world leader in printing technology, so needless to say, they know what they're doing when it comes to producing a quality printer. I was impressed with the Artisan 800's 2-year warranty; it is just a testament to Epson's dedication to quality. It's clear up front that the Artisan 800 is not only  built for good looks, but it's also built to last. It's reassuring to know that your investment will last for years to come – “peace of mind” is always a good thing!

    Unboxing the Epson Artisan 800, I found a decent amount of included accessories, but I was a little disappointed to not see a USB cable in the box. This isn't that big of a deal if you already have a USB cable that you're using to connect your current printer (I did), but if you don't have one it'll set you back about $10 to pick one up at an electronics store – definitely not a deal breaker. Aside from that small gripe, the Artisan 800 comes along with the following accessories in the box:

    • Epson Artisan 800 (obviously!)

    • One 98 High-capacity Black Ink cartridge (T098120)

    • One 99 Cyan Ink cartridge (T099220)

    • One 99 Magenta Ink cartridge (T099320)

    • One 99 Yellow Ink cartridge (T099420)

    • One 99 Light Cyan Ink cartridge (T099520)

    • One 99 Light Magenta Ink cartridge (T099620)

    • Documentation

    • CD-ROM containing drivers and creativity software (Windows® and Macintosh®)

    • Power cable

    • Ethernet cable (CAT-5)

    • Telephone cord

    I would like to add that I had no problem whatsoever connecting the printer to my HP desktop PC. It took me approximately 45 minutes from the time that I unboxed the printer until the time that I installed the software and began making some test prints. I have to give Epson some bonus points for making this relatively complex printer a cinch to hook up.
