As bad as having to play nice around a despised ex spouse.

Summary: In short, it was an unmitigated disaster. Stay away from Epson printers for the sole reason of print head clogging. You'll work six hours and a ton of ink to get the head clean only to find out that by the next morning, the head is plugged up once again.
An exceptionally versatile tool for creating high-quality photo images.

Summary: I bought an R1800 in 2006 in connection with a business I was running. The business didn't survive, but the Epson printer has, in spite of being worked to death--or as close as it is seemingly possible to get to that. It's hard to estimate how many prints I've generated, but it is certainly at least 25,000 (yes, 25,000). For perspective, consider that I recently reset the waste ink counter for the seventh time.
Summary: After a few head cleanings, the printer operates just like it should. Even though it is a few years old, it still performs like new. Just be sure to use only Epson ink, generic ink is not that good.
Summary: The print quality of the R1800 is excellent. You'd never know, if the settings are used correctly, that these prints came from a home printer. I usually use this printer for fine art projects, professional portraits, or a similar level of quality. The ink will go bad if left unused in the printer for a long period of time. Fresh ink is key if you are looking for the best quality.
Summary: I purchased an Epson R1800 to replace one that was ruined by high voltage. I especially like this model of printer for my photography. The printer I received was listed as: ....is fully operational and functions as intended. Well cared for???? Bid with confidence????? All the color heads were clogged!!!! I could not get the printer to print a good nozzle check after six head cleanings. I tried to contact the seller, and got no answers.
