Epson Stylus Photo R1900 review

24 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Over the years I spent as a working photographer I used at least a half dozen different 13x19 format photo printers. These wide-format printers have become one of the cornerstones of a working photographer's studio since the transition from film to digital.
  • Pros: Exceptional print quality (better than any other photo printer we've seen), Speedy performance, Amazing media capability (accepts matte/satin canvas, premium glossy paper, ultra premium luster paper, and matte paper), Glossy and matte black inks for glossy and matte papers, Two USB ports so you c...
  • Cons: Small ink cartridges run out of ink fast when making large prints, At this price, it should have a built-in card reader too

  • Conclusion: With a claimed 300-year lifetime for photos kept in dark storage, the Epson Stylus Photo R1900's high-quality output promises to last for generations.
  • Pros: True photo quality. Prints at up to 13 by 44 inches. Prints on CDs and DVDs. Claims up to 300-year lifetime for photos.
  • Cons: Recovering from paper jams in the rear feed slot is awkward, time-consuming, and explained incorrectly in the generated error message.

Epson Stylus Photo R1900 inkjet printer review.

10 February 2009
  • Summary: The cost of ink, the price of the printer and the fact head cleaning uses a lot of ink are all considerations you should have in mind before you buy this printer, but the high quality output combined with good print longevity make the R1900 worthy of close consideration.
  • Pros: Excellent photo print quality, build, design, and features.
  • Cons: Slow set up and installation, slow print speeds, head cleaning uses a lot of ink, print heads need frequent cleaning.

  • Summary: If you’re looking for a wide-format inkjet printer that can print on CDs and DVDs and produce high quality photos, take a peek at the Epson Stylus Photo R1900 . It tends to consume ink cartridges rapidly and it doesn’t have the print speed of some of our other large printers, but it still produces a...

Epson Stylus Photo R1900

What Digital Camera
3 April 2008
  • Summary: We loved the Epson R1800 and the R1900 has remarkably improved on that model, providing excellent results within a reasonable time of around five minutes for an A3 print. Not only that but it’s also a quiet running baby too. A price of £400 may seem steep but we think it’s worth every penny.
  • Pros: Print quality, price, quietness.
  • Cons: You need to experiment with the profiles for top quality prints.

  • Summary: The Epson R1900 is a great printer. However Epson have pinched the pennies by putting the instruction manual on disc from where it is installed to the hard drive during setup. And as with most printers the number of possible print setting permutations is bewildering.
  • Pros: The print quality is stunning, easily the best pigment ink prints that we have seen. Detail is very good, virtually indistinguishable from a good dye ink printer. Glossy prints are rich with only the slightest hint of “bronzing” (the unpleasant effect of seeing the contours of the ink when viewed...
  • Cons: The ink cartridges have very small capacities and cost $22 each. You can’t cheat with these inks, once the ink level indicator orders a cartridge replacement it must be done. The penalty for squeezing an extra print from a depleted cartridge is banding and a wasted sheet of expensive paper. In th...
