What is the difference between the Epson XP-600 and the XP-800? The Epson XP-800 features 3.5″ touchscreen display while the XP-600 only 2.5″ display size. It also offers a 30-page Auto Document Feeder included to quickly copy / scan / fax stacks of 2-sided original. This printer also has a rear paper feed for card stock, envelopes and more.
The XP-800 also features Wi-Fi Direct and Ethernet (10/100) for its connectivity. For comparison, the XP-600 doesn’t offer a rear paper feed, ADF, WiFi Direct, and Ethernet.
Epson’s Expression Premium XP-800 Small-in-one Printer is a great little multifunction that handles every SOHO chore in the book and is especially well-suited for graphic artisans. But considering how much the printer costs, it feels like the ink should be cheaper.
I was ready for a new printer and having had a prior Epson printer and currently having an Epson scanner, I researched various Epson printers and despite having no reviews on Amazon at the time, I dove for this one. While we really don’t need to print pictures, this one can and it has a higher scanner spec than the ones I was comparing it to.

Epson XP-800 cost per page
Ink costs for the XP-800 are a bit higher. The standard $12.99 cartridges yield 250 pages for the black, and 300 pages for the cyan, magenta, yellow, and photo black. That makes text pages 5.2 cents apiece, and a four-color page approximately 17 cents.
