Excellent printing quality at a fast pace makes the Epson 810 a superior unit. At around $100-$150, the Epson 810's affordable price and easy set up are attractive features for any home printer. Included programs, like Epson's photo manipulation software and PhotoQuicker 3.0, help the Stylus Color 810 produce excellent photos.
With a 6-color Epson 810 ink system, this unit applies sophisticated printer ink technology that generates outstanding results. This inkjet model uses Epson 810 ink cartridges of cyan, magenta, light cyan, yellow, light magenta and black printer ink. Stylus Color 810 ink has a maximum resolution of 2880x720 dpi, helping make photos clear and beautiful. Rivaling ink, such as HP 564XL Photo Black ink can produce slightly more impressive photos.
An average output rate of 12 pages per minute for black Epson 810 ink and 11.7 pages per minute for color is another reason this model is ideal for home use. These Epson 810 ink cartridges are larger and last longer than others such as Canon BCI-6BK ink, but also have higher prices. Replacing Stylus Color 810 ink cartridges may be expensive, but home owners that don't print at a high-volume shouldn't expect to go through ink quickly.
The Epson 810 is available for both Windows and Macintosh computers. It comes with a high-speed USB connective port, although cables are not included in the box. The user's manual that comes in the box and available online guides help owners easily understand how to set up and operate the Epson 810.
Reviews on this inkjet unit are mostly positive, praising it for high quality photos and good software that make printing these photos easy. Negative reviews focus primarily on how expensive it is to replace Stylus Color 810 ink, and the more economical options out there like Brother LC61Y ink. As a result, owners who print at high-volume rates complain about the amount of money they spend on Epson 810 ink. For this reason, the Epson 810 is really only meant for home and personal use, not businesses.
