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. The Epson Stylus Photo R1900 is the latest and greatest wide-format photo printer and it offers incredible print quality, versatility and speed so you can make lab-quality photos in your office or home.
  • 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 can have an office desktop and laptop connected at the same time, Surprisingly affordable
  • 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

Epson Stylus Photo R1900

7 January 2009
  • Summary: Epson's Stylus Pro R1900 13-inch-wide photo printer is great for scrapbookers who want to print with pigment ink, or advanced photographers who want to print large, but can't justify the expense of a pro-level printer.
  • Pros: Excellent color photo printing; big enough for scrapbookers; roll feed capable; long-lived prints; CD- and DVD-label printing; many paper options; new ink set enhances skin tones.
  • Cons: Large footprint; no card reader.

Epson Stylus Photo R1900 inkjet printer review.

1 January 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.

Epson Stylus Photo R1900

PC Magazine
22 June 2008
  • 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 photo printer

14 January 2008
  • Summary: For the serious photographer, Epson is tossing around words such as "sellable" and "gallery-quality" when referring to the R1900 output, terms that have long been reserved for the company's Stylus Pro printers. While we might look a bit askance at those claims - after all, the Epson Stylus Photo R1900 is a 6-colour inkjet - the R1900 does look like a solid improvement over an already good printer.

7 July 2011
  • 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. Getting prints that consistently match what is seen on the monitor is hard to do by trial and error.
  • 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 from off-centre which is a characteristic of pigment ink printers).
  • 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 the US the R1900 costs AUD606. Please explain!

Epson Stylus photo R1900 – Review – 23

D-Photo and The Photographer's Mail
18 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Epson’s Stylus Photo R1900 brings to the party a set of new pigment-based UltraChrome Hi-Gloss2 inks that includes an orange cartridge to help deal better with skin tones. There’s also a gloss optimiser cartridge that sprays a clear overcoat on top of glossy paper to enhance the appearance that users of that medium favour. This newest member of the Stylus Photo range is no shrinking violet.
  • Pros: Versatile
