Epson Expression Photo XP-8700 –
By William Harrel – March 2, 2022

Replacing the XP-8600 Small-in-One, Epson’s Expression Photo XP-8700 Wireless All-in-One ($249.99) is an entry-level inkjet all-in-one (AIO) printer with solid photo printing chops and limited copying and scanning prowess. Like several photo-centric home and home-office multifunctions, the XP-8700 has a flatbed scanner without an automatic document feeder (ADF) for handling multipage documents. It also uses conventional ink cartridges instead of the refillable bulk-ink reservoirs of Epson’s EcoTank, Canon’s MegaTank, and HP’s Smart Tank Plus printers, making it more expensive to use than many competitors.
