Don't-Miss Photo printer Stories
The Epson Expression Photo XP-850 lives up to its name with super-nice photos that print speedily. It also has well-priced inks and enough efficiency features to make it useful in a home office.
Canon's new Pixma MG6320 raises the bar for printer design. It's significantly easier to use than its predecessors, has automatic duplex printing, and produces nice output. Ink costs for some cartridges are higher than average.
Epson's Expression Premium XP-800 is a great little multifunction that handles every SOHO chore in the book and is especially well-suited for graphic artisans. But for a nearly $300 printer, ink costs are high.
The nice photos that the CP800 produces are overshadowed by the pricey, wasteful consumables it uses to create them.
Slower than its Epson cousins but also a little cheaper, the Charm is a good choice for a basic photo printer.
