I have this printer for about a month, I am very impressed with it so far. I still didnt replace cartridges that came with. I was a bit anxious choosing this printer, because there was no user review online yet for XP850. I found some reviews for XP800, but would not compare,since this baby is completely new design. It uses different cartridges, and seemed to be more photo inclined. XP850 takes six cartridges Black, Magenta, Light Magenta, Cyan, Light Cyan and Yellow. The XP800 uses CMYK and Photo Black. I am a hobbyist photographer, and wanted a decent printer for my photos, but didnt want to spend more than $300 for one. So far I was printing my photos online, or at local CVS store. They were rarely printed to my taste, as usually they are adding more contrast or saturation to my photos, making them look different from what I have in my computer. My monitor has visual color and gamma adjustmentcalibration. Im adjusting my photos using Lightroom 4. Photos are printed on Epson Ultra Premium Photo Paper GLOSSY. The prints look accurate with what I see on my monitor, beautiful vivid colors. I have the xp850 wired to my main machine, also connected with WiFi to a laptop in another room. Also installed an application on my Android phone and I could print images or web pages from my smart phone. I dont see myself doing that, so I removed the app. Wifi is easy to set up, works great, no issues. I like the fact that tray comes out automatically, on my older printer sometimes I would forget to open the door and extend the tray, and printed paper would get stuck inside. Printing from another room wirelessly, you wont have to ask yourself Is the tray open or not I have 4×6 photo paper in cassette1, and A4 in cassette2. But I have option to load 4×6 photo paper in cassette1, 8×10 photo paper in cassette2, and A4 paper in the rear feed slot. Easy to choose from the menu which of the cassette to use. There are plenty features you get on this printer for less than $300. Two side printing, ADF (automatic document feeder), Fax, Scan, Copy, print from memory card, print on CD, touch screen with intuitive menu. Also wireless connection to your phonetablet or laptop. I wont focus at all this features. Most people care about print quality and how long the cartridges last. Everything else is bundle. I can confirm that print quality exceeded my expectation. Every photo that comes out is simply beautiful. Im studying every inch of the photo, looking at all details and cant find anything to complain about. What I see on my IPS monitor, Im holding in my hands as print. I cant compare it to competition, as my previous printer was a junk used mostly to print online coupons. Will have to update my review after one or two cartridge changes. Update April 18 2013 Hello everyone, Im back six months after I purchased this printer as I promised, to update my review. First, Im happy to see there are more reviews of this printer, and sad to see that some people are not fully happy with it. This printer maintains highest rating of 5 stars from me. The quality of prints still amazes me. I can say that this printer improved my photography and pp editing skills. I am more careful when composing my photos, striving for better photos worth printing. I went through two sets of cartridges and now a third one is loaded. Ive printed so far 43 photos 4×6, 10 photos 8.5×11, and 6 printable discs (Philips DVDR White inkjet printable). I dont have the exact number of draft prints, but I surely finished a pack of 500 sheets of Staples multipurpose paper (98 brightness) All photos were printed with the highest quality available. Were printing daily something. Either a crossword, a coupon, or a document. I never had any issue with printing speed unlike one of the reviewers, but thats maybe because Im a patient kind of person. Or maybe because I would trade speed for quality. Speaking of that, there is a setting which gives you the option to have your prints come out faster. Anyway, here some thoughts In my initial review, I didnt see myself printing from a smart phone or tablet. Well, Santa brought an Android tablet for my wife, and now shes printing daily crosswords, from the couch, using her tablet, while Im working on the main computer. I find it very convenient. Without this feature, I would have to move away from the computer. My advice to potential owners of this printer Always have a spare set of cartridges. ALWAYS. Think ahead, buy in advance, because if you run out of one of those six cartridges, your printer can only be used to scan to PC. Nothing is more frustrating than getting ready to go see a game or a Broadway show, and you realize you cant print your tickets. Didnt happen to me, this is just a scenario, but be warned. The black cartridge seems to go faster, and I recommend to go with the XL version. The rest of the colors, dont need to be XL, unless you print a lot. The six cartridges, will not finish
