Epson SureColor P800
The Bottom Line
The Epson SureColor SC-P800 has enough features without any unnecessary bells and whistles. The quality of photo printing is excellent especially with B/W monochrome prints. The SC-P800 has plenty to offer the photographer in quality terms and will no doubt satisfy the most demanding user. The UltraChrome HD inks ensure greater light fastness, and can be used as a selling point for photographers producing limited edition prints.

Our Favorite Online User Reviews for the P800
I bought the P800 to replace an aging 3800. I also use a 3880 where I teach photography. I highly recommend the P800! The extended D-Max and gamma reach are quite apparent in side-by-side prints using both Premium Luster and Hot Press Natural. The set-up was straightforward. If you want to use wireless and you're using a Mac, don't select the first AirPrint dialog box choice you see, grab the pull-down menu and select Epson SureColor, this way you'll see all of the ICC Profiles when you go to Photoshop to print.
The print quality is quite good, and almost on par with the Epson 4900, which is quite impressive considering the P800's price in comparison, and that it uses 9 inks instead of the 4900's 12 inks. It prints details in dark and shadowed areas noticeably better than the old 3880 did, but not quite as well as the 4900 does.
Working with this printer has been fantastic it loads well as I got the roll paper attachment. The color rendition with this ink is great, Printing in B&W is of the best I have seen. big prints 17X22" and as small as 4X6" prints. If your looking for a printer to print occasional photos do not get this one it needs to be in production making you money. Yes I have recommended this to friends!
