The ET-8550 has extra photo black and grey inks, as well as the usual black, cyan, magenta and yellow. It's a wide format printer, which means it can take paper up to A3+ in size. The main A4 paper tray can only take a maximum of 100 sheets, so if you print a lot of documents it'll need regular refilling.

The Epson EcoTank Photo ET-8550 All-in-One Wide-format Supertank Printer is an impressive achievement. It delivers some of the lowest running costs available, especially for borderless tabloid (11-by-17-inch) and supertabloid printing. It's about average in size and weight for a professional-grade wide-format photo printer.

Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Epson EcoTank ET-8550 is a 3-in-1 device that can print, copy and scan. It can handle any size paper up to A3+ and even manage 2m banners via the rear tray. There are three separate paper trays, which is great for loading up both plain and photo paper and switching between them automatically. A generous 10.9cm touchscreen provides an intuitive user interface.
