The Epson R1800--a black hole of ink, time, and money.
18 March 2011
Summary: I am a graphic designer and photographer, and I come to this party a bit late. After a frustrating day with this product, I decided to see what others were experiencing. Now I wish I had read all the reviews by seething, angry, frustrated, and betrayed customers before purchasing this ink-sucking...
Summary: Comments about Epson Stylus Photo R1800: Tried for a year to get the R-1800 reliable. Two out of three attempts to print the R-1800 'failed communication' so printed less than the full page.[...]
Summary: I purchased this printer a year ago and got about 8-10 really nice prints with it. Then the problems started... Paper won't load, lights flashing. Returned it to Epson after tech support couldn't solve the problem. They sent refurb to replace my brand new printer.

Summary: I bought this printer thinking that it was going to be as great as my past epson printers. Boy was I wrong! Unfortunately, I've had nothing but trouble with this printer. So far, I've only been able to print basic documents, but nothing fancy.
Summary: I have been sitting here all day long printing nozzle checks, replacing one ink cartridge after another, running the cleaning cycle, and then printing another atrocious nozzle check. I have moved the print head off the cap and cleaned it (which has worked for the last year, but not today).
Summary: This must be one of the most hateful products in the world. I have this machine for a while, out of the box all was fine until I started to need new inks (a lot of new ink) and if I am not constantly using it, the inks dry out, you have to clean the head (it uses the ink to clean the heads!
