Summary: I first started using the Epson Stylus Photo R 800 Printer shortly after it was out in the market place. What prompted me to purchase this printer is because of the samples of excellent, quality prints I had seen at a Pro photography store. The inks for the R800 were so true to life, not rendering an over saturated and plasticky look. Skin tones appeared so natural, landscapes, wildlife, flowers and insects appeared to come to life. This is what I had been waiting for.
Summary: I own an Epson R1800 and BH Photo is the least expensive place that I've been able to purchase the ink cartridges as a set. I find it best to keep at least one of each of the cartridges on hand to avoid having to make last minute trips to the store to purchase the more expensive ones. The OEM cartridges are the only ones that seem to provide quality prints for my customers. The only thing I don't like about the cartridges is the cost.
Pros: Reliable, Sharp Tones & Colors
Cons: A little expensive to use, Too much ink used
