For users that are on the market for a personal printer should take a look at the Epson Stylus Photo 820. This inkjet unit was built to meet the needs of home users shopping for a compact color printer that can produce lab-quality photos. A 4x6 inch picture can print in less than a minute and an 8x10 inch prints in a bit less than 2 minutes at a maximum resolution of 5760x720 dpi created by the Epson 820 ink.
With a monthly duty cycle of 16,000 prints, the 820 can handle the daily tasks of a small office; however the low yields of the Stylus 820 ink cartridges would appeal more to occasional home users. The black Epson 820 ink cartridge has a maximum yield of 370 prints while the tricolor tank can produce up to 220 pages before expiring. Replacement Stylus 820 ink is available from the manufacturer or third party vendors.
Regardless which operating system is being used, the 820 is compatible. Connection to a single PC is possible through USB or parallel port, but a separate universal adapter will be needed for users hoping to use this inkjet printer in a networking environment. Weighing less than 8 pounds and measuring only 18.3x16.6x10.5 inches, the 820 is compact enough to fit on any desk or table top. The 100-sheet input tray and 50-sheet output tray will not take up much space, either.
Built-in features such as a 128 MB processor and 1 GHz processor provide an average output rate of 12 pages per minute in black-and-white and 5 pages per minute using color printer ink. The Epson Intellidge system allows users to monitor the levels of Epson 820 ink and manage the progress of tasks. Overall, this printer is reliable and consistently delivers high-quality documents.
