You may have been too busy last week with your Halloween preparations to care much about a printer announcement, but this one looks to be worth some late inspection. Last week, Epson America announced the Epson Expression Photo XP-850 Small-in-One printer aimed at photo enthusiasts and families. The Expression XP-850 uses Claria Photo HD six-color inks for smooth gradations and true-to-life skin tones in your photos, which you can print wirelessly directly from your iPad, iPhone, tablet, or smartphone.
Despite offering scan (4800 dpi optical resolution), copy, fax (three seconds per page), and print capabilities (paper sizes up to 8.5″ x 14″ and A6), the XP-850 is a modest 15.4″ wide, 13.3″ deep, and 7.5″ high.
From the press release:
The Expression XP-850 prints at remarkably fast speeds, delivering 4″ x 6″ photos in as fast as 10 seconds. With a dedicated photo tray, direct CD/DVD printing, and a rear paper feed for card stock, envelopes and more, the Expression XP-850 can easily take on any creative project. It also offers several productivity features, such as automatic two-sided printing, copying and scanning, an intuitive 3.5” LCD with intuitive gesture navigation, and a 30-page Automatic Document Feeder with color fax. The auto-extend output paper tray allows you to print with assurance that your projects and papers will be organized and not all over the floor, especially when printing remotely.
The Expression XP-850 includes convenient Ethernet networking and built-in Wi-Fi CERTIFIED n3 for multiple users to share one printer or print from any room. It also offers a variety of wireless functionality, including Wi-Fi Direct for printing from a mobile device without a network. In addition, the Expression XP-850 is equipped with Epson Connect, a suite of mobile printing solutions that make it easier for users to print documents, emails, photos, and web pages from iPads, iPhones, tablets, and smartphones from anywhere in the world.
