For nearly a decade, Bill focused on printer and scanner technology and reviews for PCMag, and wrote about computer technology since well before the advent of the internet. The gray ink is the one that gets used the most — it helps with tonality when printing photos (and graphics, to a lesser degree). During the initial printer setup, a certain amount of ink is used to fill the print head’s nozzles, therefore the yield of the initial bundled set can be lower.

The Epson ET-8500 and ET-8550 EcoTank Printers feature a range of upgrades that build off the success of their predecessors. One of the strengths of dye-based photo printers is their quality on glossy and semigloss paper types, and the ET-8500 more than held its own with dedicated dye-based photo printers like Epson’s six-ink Expression XP-15000 and Canon’s eight-ink Pixma Pro-200. My advice would be to play around with all three modes, and see if you can tell any appreciable difference in your prints. Some controls (like setting paper thickness) can only be accessed through the touchscreen, but the menu system is clean and uncluttered.

However, if you would like to, you can change your settings at any time using the Change cookie settings link in the Special menu. This time, the ET-8500 outpaced all the other AIOs discussed here so far—most of them by more than 5ppm. I also noticed that when using this printer to print documents, the text is not as detailed and precise-looking as that of my laser printer. A printer for the modern user, the EcoTank ET-8500 allows you to print, scan, and more directly from your phone or tablet using the Epson Smart Panel app{s1}, or print from SD cards and USB flash drives through the 10.

There are so many ways to print to this printer that I didn’t use this application more than once because it was less useful to me than the mobile device app. Even though the ET-8550 prints pages more than twice the size of those the ET-8500 can handle, it has the same paper capacity. Late payment and early repayment penalties apply; full details of these will be provided in the loan agreement pack. As far as I know, this skill only allows you to print a couple of things like a “sudoku”, a “design paper”, or a “help page”. It sounds simple, but the first time I tried to set up the straight path, I couldn’t tell at all what I was supposed to do.It was really easy to print them with this printer compared to my attempts with other non-photo inkjet printers.

Overall both printers seem to deliver excellent printing quality while also being more economical than their competitors with the Canon having the edge in print quality by using pigment-based ink and the Epson being cheaper and more convenient to maintain. Despite these papers being designed for pigment prints, I was delighted with the few prints I made on them. I believe that the discernible qualitative difference between this and the P Series is there, but from normal viewing distances the ET-8550 output would probably hold-up fine for my intended (non- art gallery) audience.I am an amateur photographer but I would like the prints to look like what’s been calibrated on my screen. Epson’s first supertank printers shipped more than a decade ago, and since then Canon and HP have also entered the supertank space, with their MegaTank and Smart Tank printer lines, respectively. I will not be printing a lot but would like excellent photo quality printing and longevity for pictures printed and display in frames. A rear-feed slot that can hold up to 50 sheets of plain paper or 5 sheets of standard-thickness photo paper. Whether you're working from home or getting creative in your spare time, the advanced state of the art print, copy and scan capabilities are guaranteed to impress.
