The printer's speed and print quality are major advantages. The price is also in line with similar models on the market. You're getting a solid device for a standard price.

If you have trouble opening a box and launching your tech without a ton of help, this product might not be right for you. Other printer models, especially the Canon line, go through painstaking efforts to make set-up easy and enjoyable. This printer does the opposite.


If you're looking for a device that prints high-quality color photos in addition to handling your regular printing tasks, this is a great option. Not every customer will need to shell out for a higher end desktop printer just to print photos from the Grand Canyon. However, the Epson XP-820 is a great option for a household in need of a multi-tasking home office printer that can also print high-quality photos.
