We have a home office that we use for my internet business, for a non-profit volunteer program, and for my wife’s job in which she works about 70% of her hours from home. As you can probably imagine our office requires printing, copying, scanning, and faxing. For the past few years we’ve been using our trusted Epson Workforce 635 All-in-One Inkjet Printer for our office equipment, which served us well but does not even come close to the quality of the new flagship (photo-oriented) modal Epson Artisan 835. The Epson Artisan 835 is a beautiful piece of office equipment with dimensions of 18 x 18 x 8 in storage and 18 x 26 x 8 inches with output tray extended. Although the Epson Artisan 835 is not designed for office use, it does have early every feature a home-office user would want including print, copy, scan, fax and photo.
The Good: The world’s fastest 4" x 6" photo printer; Produces Ultra Hi-Definition 4’ x 6” 6-color prints as fast as 10 seconds. Quickly print documents at speeds of 9.5 ISO ppm (black) and 9 ISO ppm (color). Quickly copy or fax documents a 3 seconds per page. Print straight from your mobile device with Wi Fi. Allows you to easily customize photos, presentations, cards, calendars and direct CD/DVD printing with the touch of a few buttons. The Artisan 835 even includes Auto Photo Correction, so you get stunning photos every time. Both stylish and elegant, the sleek and compact Artisan 835 includes everything you need to take your creativity to a whole new level. It also comes with a special Epson Preferred program offering a two-year warranty with toll-free support and other exclusive benefits.
If you are in the market for an amazing photo printer and does much more you will want to read this review.
The Bad: Yet to determine anything bad with this printer during my testing.
The Bottom line: With all the features included in this all-in-one (built-in networking with Wi-Fi, built-in memory card reader, automatic duplex (front/back), 120 sheet paper cassette, 30-sheet ADF, standard faxing, CD/DVD prints, separate photo tray, easy to use software, low energy consumption and great photo quality) and at this price you cannot find a better piece of office equipment on the market for both your professional use and personal use. The Epson Artisan 835 is a beautiful piece of office equipment and at a sleek 18 x 26 x 8 inches looks great on our office desk.
