New Epson Claria ET Premium Ink

The New 6-colour ink set produces superb, high-quality photos. Photos last up to 300 years when stored in an album. Photo black and new photo grey ink for stunning B&W photos. And the pigment black ink for sharp text documents on plain paper.

Why no Light Cyan and Light Magenta inks?

Traditional 6-colour models don’t use the smallest Cyan/Magenta droplet sizes to print the lightest shades. Instead, the printer uses large droplets of the lighter inks. This enhances quality without causing the printer to become annoyingly slow when printing areas of light colours.

The new ET-8500 and ET-8550 have a faster print head

(fast enough to use the smallest Cyan/Magenta droplet sizes for printing large areas of light colour), and combined with blending the new Photo Grey ink, means the lighter inks are no longer necessary.

By removing the Light Cyan & Light Magenta inks we can now include:

  • Pigment Black: for office-quality A4 text printing on plain paper
  • Photo Grey: for greatly enhanced B&W photo printing

Wide Colour Gamut

The wide colour gamut of Epson Claria ET Premium Ink delivers:

  • Better colour reproduction
  • Especially in the red, magenta and purple ranges
  • The new photo grey ink helps create more neutral colours
  • Smoother gradations

New Photo Grey ink for amazing B&W Photos

  • Print exquisitely detailed, high-contrast black & white photos with the new Photo Grey ink
  • Combined with the Photo Black ink, you’ll get dramatic images with beautiful toning
  • No colour casts

We can enthusiastically support EcoTank printers for normal office/home use, but it’s difficult to recommend the ET-8500 to photographers/photo enthusiasts. It can certainly produce photo prints that non-specialists might deem ‘acceptable’ on the range of media we tested (glossy, semi-gloss and...

PC Magazine

The Epson EcoTank Photo ET-8500 Wireless Color All-in-One Supertank Printer churns out terrific-looking photos and the occasional letter or business document for pennies, making it a sensible choice for families and small offices that print lots of photos.

This printer is absolutely amazing, I've never seen a printer built so well with all the software and conveniences that anyone could ask for or need. Print quality best I've seen with any printer of this class. Epson has outdone themselves this time! I will recommend this printer to all my friends!

we have had this printer for about two weeks.. we have mostly printed pictures because that is why I wanted it... have a little place on couple photos where it looks like ink dragged across for some reason. when printing on plain paper and just letters it has also drug a little smug..

I have been using Epson printers to print on white printable CDs/DVDs for a number of years and have been very happy with them. The old printers use software called Epson PrintCD but use alot of ink. This printer will print on CD/DVDs but you have to copy a DVD each time.

The printer does a nice job at both document printing as well as high quality photo prints. Unfortunately, unless this thing lasts me for 15+ years, it was hard to spend that much money on a home printer. We will see how it holds up.
