4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent print quality, clever but quirky, 17 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Epson Expression Photo XP- 850 photo printer with Claria Photo HD ink - Wifi, touch panel and ADF (Accessory)
This printer has a remarkably small footprint, making it suitable for home or small office environment. The photo quality output is excellent. It also has the rare capability to print thicker paper thin card (about 200 gsm max) if you use the single sheet slow manual feeder at the back, but leave room to access it. The automatic sheet copy-feeder on top is a useful addition. However, I advise updating the printer driver during set-up, as earliest manufactured models have a driver bug. The wireless connection seems rather weak. Connection cannot be guaranteed unless your wireless hub is nearby and obstacle-free, and unless you have a higher-speed connection it can take an inordinate amount of time to download larger files for printing. USB connection is far quicker and more reliable. The printed sheet collection tray opens forwards automatically, so make sure there is enough clear space in front of the printer. Oddly, the tray doesn't automatically close again when the printer goes to sleep, which seems an unnecessary design oversight. Instead it has to be pushed it back manually against a somewhat resistant mechanism.

Hi Art on the moon, Can this printer possibly go up to 250gsm card? I print greetings cards and am currently having difficulty finding a printer to take this capacity
