Epson Expression Premium XP-830


Epson's Expression Premium XP-830 sits at the top of the company's range of home printers. With a duplex mode and scanner, as well as the capability to print with commendable quality on a variety of mediums, it's a great-value all-rounder.

With a large feature set in a compact chassis, the Expression Premium XP-830 is a great home printer. Only better print quality could have made it the best choice around.

Epson Expression Premium XP-830 Small-In-One


The Epson Expression Premium XP-830 Small-in-One's abundance of features make this inkjet MFP a top choice for home or home office use.

Compact. Prints, copies, scans, and faxes. Duplexer. 4.3-inch color touch screen. SD card reader. Port for USB thumb drive. Wi-Fi Direct. Photo-paper tray. Can print on optical discs. Above-average photo quality.

Limited paper capacity. Running costs are on the high side. Subpar text quality. Somewhat slow at printing photos in our testing.

Conclusion The Epson Expression Premium XP-830 Small-In-One is a versatile and capable printer. It has all the features you look for in an inkjet for your home, and is up to light-duty business use as well, provided that text quality isn't critical and...

Epson Expression Premium XP-830 Small-in-One Review


The Epson Expression Premium XP-830 Small-in-One offers the best photo printing from a wireless all-in-one printer in our review. It comes up short in other areas, missing broad support for mobile devices and offering only average document printing,...

Photo printing is excellent, with rich blacks and consistently high quality.

It's missing some key mobile support for a wireless printer.

The Epson Expression Premium XP-830 Small-in-One is a fairly average inkjet printer, but it stands out as a category-leading photo printer.

Epson Expression Premium XP-830 Small-in-One Review and Ratings


Like its predecessors, this five-ink, photo-centric all-in-one prints quickly, churning out great-looking photos and documents. Only big quibble? The ink's too pricey.

Low initial purchase price ; Excellent output quality ; Respectable print speeds ; Easy to set up and use ; Auto-duplexing ADF and printing ; Versatile paper handling ; Prints on optical media

High cost per page ; So-so text at small font sizes

Essentially, this is the fourth time we’ve looked at this printer. The XP-800 models have had a new name each time we looked at one (plus 10), and granted, the Expression Premium XP-830 Small-in-One has a few more productivity and convenience features....

New printer


Just received printer. Very happy with color and printing. It's a bit more high tech than I'd hoped... a lot more to malfunction but so far so good.

Compact and user friendly


I purchased the XP 830 after my Epson 3540 Work Force died after 3 years. I have been using the XP 830 in my home office for about a month now. Setting up the scan features went well. Using the copy feature- enlarge/reduce is fairly user friendly....

Can't print envelopes or labels.


I have had this printer for a while. I bought it to be compatible with Windows 10 It prints documents and pictures fine but it won't print envelopes or labels - keeps saying CD/DVD tray not loaded properly. I find it not very user friendly. Every time...

The most-est awesome-est printer you'll find!


I've had this printer for a couple of months and so far I've found this printer to be totally awesome. Setup was easy and wow, it has EVERY feature I need in a multi-function device like this. Duplex sheet-fed scanning, duplex printing, super-easy...

Loved it at the beginning, but...


Lots of features and provides great printouts, but after about 1 year you will spend all of your time cleaning the print heads and all of your money buying new cartridges. Could not be more disappointed after a great start. Do not buy this or any other...
