This is the Epson XP-860 is could print beautiful records, the per-page cost of ink, as well as a couple of other things, limit it to a business file printer.

(You’ll additionally obtain easy, attractive scans as well as duplicates of both images and multipage, two-sided papers.) It may not be cheap for what it is, but we doubt you’ll have quibbles about any one of its output, theoretically or digital.

Also, while both makers use Epson’s Claria Photo HD inks, the XP-860 makes use of the 277-version of typical XL high-capacity cartridges. Epson approximates that the standard black cartridge will certainly yield about 240 web pages, while the color cartridges will print about 360 pages. The yields on the XL cartridges are approximated at 500 pages for the black cartridge and 740 web pages for the shade cartridges. Common capacity cartridges cost $11 each, while the XL cartridges are valued at $20 for the black ink and also $17 for every of the color cartridges.
The Epson XP-860 has the precise very same touchscreen we such as on the XP-820. It’s big, as well as you move through the menus by swiping horizontally and also the submenus by swiping vertically.

Nevertheless, that it makes use of six inks additionally considerably raises its general price each web page (CPP), specifically if you make use of the company’s standard-capacity ink tanks. For example, when you use the standard storage tanks, black-and-white prints will certainly cost you around 4.6 cents each, and shade web pages, when the printer is using just the standard CMYK cartridges, run about 13.6 cents. Nevertheless, when the light-cyan and light-magenta containers kick in, the shade CPP might jump as high as 19.6 cents, which is fairly high for a mainstream inkjet printer.
Note that these computations are based on the per-cartridge rate of $10.99 on Epson’s Web site. The black storage tank is rated (by Epson) at 240 pages, and the shade tanks are all rated at 360 web pages. You can do a little better with Epson’s supposed high-capacity, or “XL,” storage tanks. The black XL tanks generate about 500 pages and sell on Epson’s site for $19.99, as well as the 5 shade cartridges are good for concerning 740 pages as well as cost $16.99 each.
Making use of these numbers and also the XL storage tanks, we estimate that the black-and-white CPP must exercise around 4 cents each. Shade pages (when utilizing the common four procedure colors) ought to run regarding 11.4 cents, or around 15.5 cents when all 6 shades start. While these numbers correspond with those of several other photo printers, they’re still costly compared with high-volume business-oriented printers.
