Epson Expression Photo XP-860 Small-in-One Printer is Huge

I’m a big fan of Epson’s printers, so I was excited to check out the brand new Epson Expression Photo XP-860 Small-in-One printer. It leverages Epson’s MicroPiezo printing technology, and it offers much, much more in a compact, affordable printer. We have a full review on the way, but I wanted to serve up a first look.The XP-860 is equipped with Epson Connect. This suite of free mobile printing solutions even enables users to edit, scan, and share photos directly to Facebook and other cloud services. The printer has a dedicated photo tray, a rear paper feed for specialty media, and even includes direct CD/DVD printing — although I can’t recall that last time I used physical media.
