What do you get when you shove every possible modern multifunction-printer feature—printing, copying, scanning, faxing, even CD/DVD labeling—into a very small and stylish chassis? Well, until a couple of years ago, say, back around the end of 2012, we’d always called the result “all-in-ones” (AIOs), whatever their size. At that time, this line of compact AIOs consisted of some the smallest full-featured machines available. Epson called them (cleverly) “Small-in-Ones.”
That was November 2012, almost two full years prior to this writing. The machine was Epson’s $279-MSRP Expression Premium XP-800 Small-in-One Printer, the flagship of the line. Since then, I’ve looked at the XP-800’s replacement, the $229-MSRP XP-810, and now, here’s my review the XP-810’s replacement, the 2014 $199.99-MSRP Epson Expression Premium XP-820 Small-in-One Printer. As I reported about both of the XP-820’s predecessors, this Small-in-One is relatively fast, it prints well, and it’s loaded with features. Unfortunately, even though this AIO lists for about $80 less than the original XP-800, its cost per page, or CPP, is the same—making it too costly to use for most home-based businesses and small offices.
