I received an Epson Premium XP-810 Small-in-One Printer to facilitate this review; all opinions are my own.
There is so much to love about my new Epson Expression Premium XP-810 Small-in-One® Printer. First let me tell you about some of the reasons it fits my lifestyle. It’s small (about 7 ” tall, by 13″ deep, and 15″ wide), lightweight, and wireless which means I can move it anywhere in my home (it’s currently in my bedroom), and I can print from any of my devices to it. And because it’s wireless, it only needs an electrical outlet to work. I’ve used it in the livingroom, in the office, and in my craftroom. Wherever it was convenient for me at the time.
But what’s really fabulous is I can print from any internet connected device with Epson Connect. It’s a free mobile printing solution that I can use to make printing from anywhere in the world possible. For instance, I can print my travel itinerary from my hotel to my home printer so my husband knows when and where to pick me up. Families could use it to send a copy of mom’s calendar from work to home or the soccer schedule to dad right from the field. It connects seamlessly from any internet connected device including the Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HDX (via Amazon’s integrated wireless printing solution – find out more at Kindle Fire Printing).
Epson Premium XP-810 Printer Features
The printer has double-sided printing capability to save paper and create fabulous cards and crafts. With separate color cartridges, you change only the colors you need, which means better ink use. Print on plain paper, cardstock, sticker paper, photo paper, or just about any other paper you can think of. Nearly any size paper (up to 8-1/2x 14″) can be loaded with a special tray insert. Plus with its sheet feeder, you can copy multiple pages at once hands free!
But this little all-in-one does more than print. It’s a scanner and fax machine too. That’s good use of space! It makes crafting a breeze and is perfect for printing party supplies, labels, cards, invitations, and more.
The color coverage is perfect – bright and complete. No lines or runs. The printer is fast and takes only minutes to set up. Once it’s available on your Wi-Fi network it’s available to all of your devices – tablets, smartphones, laptops, etc. Print from anywhere in the house, from any device.
This new Epson also prints directly onto CD/DVDs and with the Epson Creative Print App print Facebook photos, turn your photos into coloring books, create custom greeting cards, and more.
