About this deal

Looking at the horizontal lines across the entire print, the first thing I would do is a nozzle check. It prints high-quality black and color documents at a decent pace and supports automatic double-sided printing.

Pigment printers do have a slight advantage with fine art and matte media types, and viewers were a bit more discerning, picking the pigment printers as generally better than those on the ET-8500. It’s advisable to run a printhead alignment program at this stage which simply involves printing out a test page and checking it. Equally, the scanner function was great, with the resolution of 1,200 x 4,800dpi providing as much detail as you could want. not sure where I read it, may have been the Keith Cooper review, that standard is absolutely fine with very little discernable improvement by using highest setting.It is recommended not to exceed this limit, as the printer would not be suitable for usage heavier than 50,000 pages a month. The EcoTank Photo printers have easy-to-read ink level indicators, letting you know exactly how much ink you have left in each tank. While the ET-8500 excels when printing on glossy and luster papers, my results with matte or fine art papers were quite good as well. While I could nitpick certain color tones or the overall sharpness, the ET-8550's prints look great at normal viewing distances. The printer can be connected via USB, Ethernet or WiFi, and can be set up from either a Mac or Windows computer or an iOS/Android device.

It sounds simple, but the first time I tried to set up the straight path, I couldn’t tell at all what I was supposed to do.
