Meet Claria Photo HD Ink

Print long-last­ing and pro­fes­sion­al-look­ing, glossy pho­tos with Clar­ia Pho­to HD Ink. Both pho­tog­ra­phy enthu­si­asts and semi-pro­fes­sion­als are sure to appre­ci­ate the enhanced lev­el of qual­i­ty pro­duced by its 6‑colour inks. It deliv­ers detailed images and real­is­tic skin tones with smooth tonal gra­da­tions and deep­er, more nat­ur­al blacks.

Minimise printing costs

Whether you print all the time or just occa­sion­al­ly, there’s an afford­able option to suit with both stan­dard and extra-large (XL) car­tridges. By invest­ing in XL inks, you can print more and pay less. With both car­tridge types, the colours are avail­able indi­vid­u­al­ly so only the colour used needs to be replaced.

Hassle-free and reliable

Epson gen­uine inks and papers have been devel­oped to work hand-in-hand with Epson print­ers to pro­duce the best results time and time again. We invest in exten­sive research and high-tech man­u­fac­tur­ing facil­i­ties, and put our prod­ucts through rig­or­ous tests to deliv­er the best qual­i­ty prod­uct to you.

  1. Mr. D. G. Sheppard

    Do not buy this print­er.After ten days of con­tin­u­al­ly report­ing the prob­lems with this print­er’s inabil­i­ty to print DVDs to Epson and hav­ing to jump through every pos­si­ble hoop imag­in­able (yes the prob­lem was always made out to be my fault) wrong apps, wrong inks, wrong dri­vers, wrong util­i­ties, wrong print pro­ce­dures and wrong of me to sug­gest the print­er was faulty. I have wast­ed loads of extor­tion­ate­ly expen­sive orig­i­nal inks and blank DVDs try­ing to get a faulty machine to print. I have unin­stalled and rein­stalled every app, dri­ver and per­formed every pos­si­ble com­bi­na­tion of this over and over dur­ing the ensu­ing ten day peri­od. Today, I final­ly have had enough of Epson (lack of) sup­port and giv­en up on this dread­ful print­er. Buy­ers beware, if your get one that does­n’t work you will be strung along with every con­ceiv­able excuse known to man and still be no clos­er to hav­ing a work­ing machine. Do I rec­om­mend this print­er? NO I DO NOT. Do I rec­om­mend Epson for their sup­port? NO I DO NOT. Will I be buy­ing anoth­er Epson Print­er? NOT A CHANCE. Am I a sat­is­fied cus­tomer? NO!


    … I could afford / jus­ti­fy the expense of a good qual­i­ty A3+ pho­to print­erI had been wait­ing for the time when I could afford / jus­ti­fy the expense of a good qual­i­ty A3+ pho­to print­er, then Epson announced the launch ofthe Expres­sion XP 15000. I did­n’t take long to search and find the low­est cost sup­pli­ers, and decide which one I trust­ed most.Just a lit­tle frus­trat­ing to not have any media to check the print­er, but luck­i­ly, the deliv­ery was just in time to beat the Sat­ur­day clos­ing time ofmy near­est supplier.Then I spent about half an hour unpack­ing and set­ting up. Note that there are sev­er­al adhe­sive tapes hold­ing var­i­ous parts firm­ly togeth­er with some of them not easy to find, which involves remov­ing the two paper trays to get at the inter­nal ones (which are not vis­i­ble from the out­side) I was guid­ed by the step by step instruc­tions on the CD. but even so, missed one inter­nal tape.The guide refused to go any fur­ther, and warned me to remove all tapes before try­ing to move to the next step, but the machine had already attempt­ed to move on, and tried to move the print­er car­riage, which pro­duced a strange noise, but luck­i­ly did not seem to have caused any dam­age. In my view the menu should have explained how many tapes were hold­ing things togeth­er and how to find them before press­ing “Next”.Finally I made my first A3 print, Wow what a beau­ti­ful result ! I am quite used to super A4 prints from my old Epson pho­to print­er. but this print­er allows LIFE SIZE facial por­traits, with a qual­i­ty that I could only pre­vi­ous­ly obtain by send­ing my files off to a Print firm.Very expen­sive media but the results are worth every pen­ny. Just make sure you don’t waste any.

    BE CAREFUL!Be care­ful with this pur­chase! Ama­zon claim that the Squir­rel 378 pack with the light cyan and light magen­ta is com­pat­i­ble — it is NOT. Do not buy the bun­dle pack adver­tised for this prod­uct! Epson are just as bad not know­ing what’s what with their inks.Also, Epson only make Red and Grey XL. The only mul­ti-pack that is com­pat­i­ble with this print­er that I can find is the C13T379D4010 which is the pack that comes with Red and Grey and it’s only XL! So the cost is £112!!!I don’t under­stand why Ama­zon is still adver­tis­ing the light cyan and light magen­ta as com­pat­i­ble! I pur­chased this print­er on the fact the ink (£53 pack) was doable. I did­n’t pur­chase the adver­tised pack, thank god but I did­n’t know that I would have to spend £112 on bloody ink for this thing!!!Also, be care­ful with A3 prints. It can­not print on 80GSM. I tried every­thing and the print head just tears the paper. In the instruc­tion man­u­al it claims 75GSM but I think that’s for A4 only. So, while the machine wast­ed all my ink try­ing to print on A3 at dif­fer­ent set­tings, I had to pur­chase much thick­er paper.It is a good print­er with good qual­i­ty prints and it is very easy to use, but it is a mon­ey hole when it comes to inks and with Ama­zon STILL adver­tis­ing the INCORRECT ink bun­dle, which is bloody amaz­ing to me, peo­ple are going to end up with inks they can’t use!If you don’t want to buy the hor­ren­dous­ly priced XL pack at £112, you will have to pur­chase the adver­tised pack then pur­chase the XL red and grey sep­a­rate­ly because they only do XL which will leave you with Light Cyan and Light Magen­ta lying around doing nothing.This is mind bog­gling and Epson are also guilty of screw­ing peo­ple over here not just Amazon!

    Do Not BuyNice Print­er if you only want to print 20 pages a yearI have print­ed around 400 A4 colour pages it now is telling me Ink Pad Full send off for a ser­viceThis is a Joke print­er Not Rec­om­mend­ed unless you are pre­pared to spend a lot of mon­eyY­ou Have Been Warned

  6. Paul John­son

    Real­ly good qual­i­tyI bought this print­er to replace my pre­vi­ous HP print­er which had been an absolute dis­as­ter of unre­li­a­bil­i­ty and con­nec­tiv­i­ty problems.Well this is com­plete­ly the oppo­site. Set­up was incred­i­bly sim­ple, adding it to WiFi very easy, both Macs and PCs hap­pi­ly found and installed the dri­vers for it straight away, and the print qual­i­ty has been excel­lent. I have some very slight con­cerns that there are mov­ing parts that just don’t need to move (the out­put tray extends itself out when it’s about to print — it makes the device more com­pact when it’s not print­ing, but the pla­s­ticky gears seem like a good fail­ure point to me, and it’s real­ly unnec­es­sary) and you would want to be care­ful if chil­dren are using it.The rea­son I’ve not giv­en a five star review is because Epson, like all the print­er com­pa­nies, pro­vide just a pathet­ic amount of ink in the “set­up” pack. I know it lets them keep the cost of the print­er low, which makes them seem like a more attrac­tive pur­chase, but buy­ing a print­er only to find that after a cou­ple of days you need to spend £100 on replace­ment ink car­tridges feels like a “bait and switch” manouver.It would be bet­ter for con­sumers if print­er com­pa­nies stopped this practice.

  7. Pete John­ston

    Failed in many so waysI bought this before Christ­mas to replace an XP-950 which I had been using with few prob­lems for almost 3 years. I have had so many errors, the lat­est of which is that “Main­te­nance Box is near­ing the end of its ser­vice life”. I have been using it for 45 days. The deliv­ery date was the 12th Novem­ber and it is now 27th Decem­ber. In the same year just in case you thought I had a slip of my mem­o­ry. After an online chat I was asked to con­tact their ser­vice cen­tre. 1 and a half hours lat­er I was still hold­ing! I don’t think I’ll be buy­ing Epson again.Maybe you’ll have a bet­ter experience 🙁

  8. GH Dixon

    Save your mon­eyI have owned 2 pre­vi­ous Epson print­ers, both good. This one is not. The print­er prints par­al­lel hor­i­zon­tal lines down the page and has proved impos­si­ble to resolve. Epson sup­port has been poor at resolv­ing the issue pre­fer­ring to con­cen­trate on blocked nozzels and the use of incor­rect inks, clear­ly not the issue here. I am now expect­ed to take this print­er over 40 miles to a repair cen­tre dur­ing lock down. Con­sid­er­ing this print­er is brand new and straight out of the box I do not con­sid­er this solu­tion to be good enough from a major brand like Epson.

  9. Evily Mash

    Doesn’t print black and white!I first tried Canon IP8750 but it was too sim­plis­tic and didn’t print black and white with­out a red colour cast. I forked out a bit more for this one. I’m a semi-pro­fes­sion­al pho­tog­ra­ph­er, but I tru­ly can­not afford to pay more though it’s quite obvi­ous that you only get a real­ly good result from a more expen­sive printer.I pre­fer that on the Epson print­er, there’s a dis­play that gives you all the instruc­tions you need for cal­i­bra­tion and main­te­nance. How­ev­er, I did strug­gle a lot before I dis­cov­ered the Epson iPrint app. There is no nat­ur­al way of print­ing square pho­tos from an iPhone. Though you can cre­ate a cus­tom pro­file on the print­er, you can’t seem to use it with an iPhone. I tried an app called Print to Size but it didn’t believe that the Epson print­er could print on A3+… I only then dis­cov­ered the Epson iPrint app and in the end fig­ured out that you can pinch your pho­to into place so you do get what­ev­er size pho­to you like even if like me, you only have A3+ size papers at hand. You can trick the sys­tem by pre­tend­ing it’s on an A3 rather than A3+ So the res­o­lu­tion is more accept­able (iPhone 6 pho­tos are pret­ty poor res­o­lu­tion and will only go up to about A3) AND you get a bor­der (which I want). How­ev­er, you end up hav­ing to cut the paper to size because the image won’t land in the mid­dle. Please note that this print­er also does NOT print black and white to sat­is­fac­tion and has the same red colour cast as the Canon. I tried sev­er­al apps that turn the pho­to into B/W. The print­er tells me it’s a prob­lem with the cal­i­bra­tion of my screens, which is just rub­bish. I got around the prob­lem by adding a colour cast of my choice, so my art pho­to came out mono­chrome rather than pure B/W. Anoth­er prob­lem is that the prints come out a lot dark­er than what you see on an LED screen (I’ve test­ed this on both my iMac and my iPhone) so you have to yank up the expo­sure. I bought the print­er with­out ink tanks but the ones that did come with the print­er seem to print quite a few large test prints so I can make my mind up before they run out. They actu­al­ly seem to last a tad longer than the Canon ones did. I hope that when I change the inks, the print­er will recog­nise the tanks. On the Canon, it didn’t!

    Absolute sh*t show!This is the same print­er as the XP-8600, but in white colour.Having bought on the strength of the reviews on here, I was seri­ous­ly disappointed.Starting on the set­up, halfway through I got an error mes­sage and prompt­ed me to switch it off. When switched back on, there was no way of going through set­up again. Start­ed off well!Being a com­put­er lit­er­ate per­son myself, I found the print­er to be incred­i­bly fussy and fid­dly with set­ting up and paper.There were sev­er­al jams, wast­ing me ink and expen­sive paper in the process. This was with­in 2 days of own­ing it.Print qual­i­ty for text is ok (noth­ing spe­cial), and I would be will­ing to accept that were it not for the black trails at the page edges it occa­sion­al­ly left behind. A big no no.Photo qual­i­ty is ok ONLY on 6x4 prints. Any­thing big­ger than that and you’ll lose detail and images appear soft and mushy. Colours are always much dark­er than the actu­al image.Black and white images are NOT back and white. They have a col­or cast to them, green­ish blueish tone on this printer.The worse by far are the paper trays.You see, tray 1 is a pho­to paper tray with a siz­er, which hov­ers above tray 2. This is tricky and fid­dly when hav­ing to feed paper on tray 2, unless you have very skin­ny hands or like to get your hand stuck inside the printer.Also, tray 1 tends to “push back” before print­ing some­thing, and then you get an error mes­sage. You then have to push it in and some­times hold it, until the print­er takes the paper.Loading paper in the back tray is also an adven­ture. It sent me around in loops, spit­ting paper out, until it felt like print­ing. And when it does, it’s very slow at printing…It’s a mess!Printer build is flim­sy and tat­ty, looks like it will break easily.Immediately packed it all up and returned.If you want a good all around print­er, this is not the one!On the oth­er hand, if you want to get frus­trat­ed and waste end­less time and expen­sive ink, whilst tempt­ing your nerves, then get this print­er. It’s good for that.
