Description

While it initially seems a bit freaky to be holding an open bottle of ink and inserting it into the appropriate tank opening, it really is a clean operation. Epson advertises that it can print a 4" x 6" photo (Draft Quality on glossy paper) in 15 seconds; however, it's closer to 36 seconds from the moment you initiate the print job.

The Epson EcoTank Photo ET-8550 and the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-300 are both excellent photo printers.While Canon’s A3 printer can produce a stunning photo in just over three minutes, the ET-8550 takes well over ten minutes. While most of our focus in this review is on the photo-specific aspects of the ET-8500, here are a few other things worthy of mention. However, the Epson is more versatile because it has a scanner, and its ink tank yields more prints, resulting in a significantly lower cost per print. The printer was easy to set up, and the app features illustrated step-by-step guides for initialization and using different paper types and sizes. Epson’s materials boast that ET-8500’s Claria inks give you “enough ink to print 6,200 color pages,” but that is for basic ISO ratings in the default printing mode, not for photos.

Note : Uninstall Center cannot uninstall Easy Photo Print, Print CD and all other SW installed by VISE X. Emptying the tank completely can damage the printer, so we consider color ink necessary for black and white printing. If you've printed photos at home, you've likely dealt with frustrations getting prints to match what you see on the screen, but the ET-8550 did well without any adjustments. There are some vertical lines when printing in the Standard Quality mode, but they aren't present when printing in the Best Quality mode. They have excellent photo quality, flexible paper handling options and superb usability, with print costs that are a fraction of those found in specialized photo printers.

The Canon also has faster printing speeds and a much larger 600-sheet input tray for big print jobs. It's not unusual to get a bit of a color cast, sometimes prints come out somewhat yellow or a bit blue, or they lack contrast. HD Digital Frame is a great way to put your portfolio on display and a great way to surface forgotten memories.

This printer has six tanks for cyan, magenta, yellow, gray, black (pigment), and photo black (dye) ink. The Claria ET Premium inks used in the ET-8500 and the ET-8550 are a hybrid dye/pigment inkset, of which only five inks print at any one time.My recommendation is to select the highest quality setting for all media types except Ultra Premium Glossy (unless close-up detail is important) and plain paper (where it just makes the printing slow and warps the paper).
