Overall I love this printer
11 September 2007
Summary: The Epson R1800 has been a great printer for me. It was easy to calibrate to my Mac system and consistently produces brilliant photos that help me look good to our customers. I've been most impressed that during a period that I did not use it for weeks on end, it started up and printed beautifully...
Pros: Compact Design, Durable construction, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time
Summary: I moved up from the dye-based 1200 to the R1800 about two years ago, having tried and returned an Epson 2200 because of bronzing on the glossy prints(bronzing is a brownish tint that appears when you hold the print at an angle under certain lighting conditions) The R1800 uses a "gloss optimizer"...
Summary: This is, hands down, the best photo printer I have ever owned or used. I'm a "serious amateur/semi-professional" photographer and this printer delivers the high quality images I demand. Epson provides an excellent "quick start" guide that made setup a breeze.
Excellent for high end - but NOT with fine art paper

Summary: I have used the Epson 1800 with Photoshop CS2 on both a Windows and Mac machine. In both cases the prints are outstanding. It's important to calibrate your monitor and also use the specific profiles that Epson provides to match your paper.
Summary: I purchased this printer knowing it would be a great printer for small/medium sized prints, and it absolutely is! The Gloss optimizer really kicks ass. The large format Epson printers don't compare to the quality the R1800 puts out, and I should know because I also use an Epson 10000 on a regular...
Summary: I am a scrapbooker and I purchased this printer because of its ability to print 12"x12" paper. Everything I've printed has been top quality. I've completed 3 digital scrapbooks (24 pages in each)in the short time I've owned this printer.
Excellent printer for Artists and Photographers...

Excerpt: I am an artist and was after a printer to make high quality prints at home. After much research and reading reviews I decided to purchase my Epson Stylus Photo R1800. Overall I have been extremely pleased.
Pros: Print Quality, larger Size paper, good software included .
Cons: Noisy when printing, cartridges run out quickly .
Excerpt: Superb Printer, really impressed. Just bought this photographic printer for £340 and am really impressed with quality and ease of use. The printer has 8 seperate ink tanks which saves on replacing inks. Both black and colour ink resolutuion are a good 5760x x1440 dpi.
Pros: Ease of use, quality, paper size
Cons: Small ink tanks, Inks run out quite quickly, No LCD display
Summary: Excellent value for money. I have Epson's 1290 and Photo 2000P; the 1290 gave up the ghost after 5 years' heavy use. The 200P soldiers on (used professionally), but now seems incredibly slow after the R1800!
Pros: Quality and speed of printing on all types of media
Cons: Matte black and gloss optimizer cartridges are depleted gradually just from turning machine on & off (a cleaning cycle begins every time you switch on or off).
