Epson 837 print quality
Jul 9, 2012

I have, after researching printers, recently installed an Epson 837 Artisan printer. I was looking for a printer that was multifunctional yet gave excellent quality prints, and this seemed to fit the bill. I also use an HP Photosmart 8250 and find the print quality of this printer to be outstanding; however, I know this printer will not last forever and I would need a suitable replacement. I have found that the Epson, although the detail in the prints is outstanding, leaves something to be desired in regard to color reproduction and darkness relative to my Mac monitor, whereas the HP is spot on. My questions are as follows;

1.Is this to be expected with this particular printer, or is there some tweaking in the settings that can be performed?

2. If this is the best this printer can do, can anyone recommend a printer, photo-only or otherwise, which can match the output of the HP?
Thank you for taking the time to read this and respond to my inquiry.
