"Good But Not Great"

backpakdan, CNET
2 January 2010
  • Pros: 1) I like the versatile sizes available and especially the large ones. 2) When it was working well, it made excellent prints.
  • Cons: Communications errors (I own an iMac); ink cartridges (8) nru out quickly; Expensive to operate, (ink cartridges dry out quickly); Setup for a print is too complex, not organic or user friendly.

Paper jams on R1800 after a year

Medicine Paint, B&H Photo
6 March 2008
  • Summary: I read a similar review of the Epson R1800 here. I purchased my R1800 about a year ago and it has performed very well until recently. I receive a "Paper Jam" error whenever I try to print a "Best" quality photo. I tried different paper sizes and qualities and still get the jam. I have inspected the printer and reloaded drivers and the problem persists. Since I need the printer professionally, I am not going to expend any further money with Epson [...

Epson Cash Cow!

Salome "picky consumer", Amazon
10 July 2007
  • Summary: I had to replace my Epson 1270, which they decided not to supply new drivers for my operating system. The shocker comes when you buy all 8, yes, 8 cartidges at a whopping $115.00. Each cartridge runs about 12.99 a piece, one of the colors costs about ten dollars more. You can replace just one color but I have found that if you are printing color you soon need to replace the other colors too.

R1800 - Great for Matte - Poor for Glossy

EH, Amazon
15 August 2005
  • Summary: I own an R1800. The matte prints are outstanding and the printer is quick, but the glossy prints are not up to par with dye based printers. Even with the glossy overcoat the images look cloudy. This would be fine but Epson sells this as an outstanding glossy printer. If you need a matte printer, this printer offers top quality right out of the box. Be careful using the Epson Watercolor paper because it is too thin and doesn't aborb the ink well.
