Customer Feedback

The Epson Artisan 835 scanned the pictures in perfectly. We are very pleased with the result, and now we can see our pictures on our desktop.
Printing: Good, Scanning: Excellent. Copying: excellent.
It prints very well, and has an automatic photo tray.
One con for the printer is that it cannot handle 3-hole punch paper, for use in a loose-leaf notebook. When the printer reaches the first hole in the paper, it spits out the entire sheet. You can print on the back side but then the holes are on the wrong side for the notebook. The printer does indicate that it can print on ruled paper, but I’d have to see if that means standard college ruled paper, or what, since we had problems with the 3-hole punched paper.
Another con is that the Epson scanning software doesn’t seem to auto-clip scanned in pictures, although that may be pilot error.

Customer Feedback

The PIXMA MG5220 wireless inkjet photo all-in-one took me about an hour to remove the packing material, install the printer head and ink cartridges, calibrate and set up in both the wired and unwired LAN Wi-Fi operation. I tested my word processing program, internet printing, copying and scanning and was really impressed at the quality and ease of printing.
Pages print at blazing speed, and I can load both photo paper and regular paper at the same time and it automatically selects the correct media. Photos are gorgeous and text is super black and crisp.
