Question Epson Et printer

I need to get a new printer. I am looking at the Epson Et prints and I would like one that prints phots well and can do double-sided and black and white and color and I have only seen the ET 8500 printer that can do all of the above. Does anyone have this printer and can tell me if they like or if anyone has a different on that can do all the about in the Epson ET prints and if you like them

I'll check with DH, I think our newest printer is the Epson 8550. I'm not sure if it does all you ask, but I will say it prints AMAZING photos! We're SO pleased with the way it prints that we're doing artwork to hang in the living room. One of the best features (to me) is truly borderless printing. The picture quality is stunning.

DH says ours is the big brother to the 8500- ours can print larger pages.

I swear by all things HP and we really like our Envy Photo 7855 model. I recommend going to an office supply big box store and take a closer look at the printers you like and also check on the availability and prices of ink refills. Printing photos gobbles up the color cartridges.

DH looked this up for reference:

He reminded me to mention that the first one we got didn't work and had to be returned. The second one was just fine. We got the 8550 because it makes larger prints. I will say again, we're stunned at the quality of the images- it's just phenomenal!

MrRuppert, looks like you and lutheran have eerily similar opinions.
