Epson Artisan 800
Printers usually aren’t this exciting. Or this good looking. Or this powerful. The Epson Artisan 800 ($230) is absolutely packed with features — the good kind of features that you actually use. This all-in-one print/scan/fax beauty sports a 7.8″ touch panel with a 3.5″ LCD to preview photos, Wi-Fi for printing from any room, and super fast prints — up to 38 ppm in black/color and photos in as little as 10 seconds. The Artisan 800, which produces Ultra Hi-Definition prints (yes, they’re as good as they sound), also packs in the ability to print directly onto ink jet printable CDs and DVDs; dual paper trays for plain and photo paper; handy individual ink cartridges; memory card slots to print photos without a computer; an auto document feeder; and built-in two-sided printing. We dare you to find something better at this price point.
Don’t really care about the 7.8″ touchscreen, nor the LCD, nor the dual paper trays.
However, my next printer MUST HAVE:
- Direct CD/DVD printing.
- Auto-duplexing (double sided printing).
That’s it. I’m easily satisfied.
