Eater of ink

splashsmama, Ebay
23 March 2010
  • Summary: All I have to say is make sure if you buy one used that all the printer heads are cleaned. And be prepared to spend A LOT on ink for this printer. We're talking 8 different cartridges at about $12 a pop. And the printer eats up the ink like no tomorrow, especially if you try to run the automatic/manual head cleaner.

"Expensive to keep running"

ABCarr56, CNET
4 March 2010
  • Pros: Beautiful output quality when working properly
  • Cons: Purchased the R1800 around 4 years ago, but haven't used it for maybe a year due to ink being low and having other printers. Recently re-inked (@ $120 or more) and had poor output due to clogged nozzles (not unexpected).

"The printer manual is very insufficent and incomplete."

tobesofree, CNET
6 November 2009
  • Pros: It is a medium format printer that, when working right and adjusted correctly, prints out exceptional quality 13 by 19 size prints.
  • Cons: Epson software seems to conflict Adobe and creates unsure operating results. Printer manual gives insufficient information realtive to using roll paper, printer setup, color correction, sizing. The ink volume information is very, very, inaccurate.

Great with Photoshop, not so great with Illustrator and InDesign on Macs

Erik Ratcliffe, Amazon
23 September 2005
  • Summary: After reading the reviews here as well as on other web sites, I have no doubt that this printer works great with Photoshop CS. However, I never got a single good printout from this printer using Illustrator CS or InDesign CS on my Macs. Color saturation levels were truly awful no matter what I did to fix them. Playing with Gamma didn't help much, either.
