Epson Stylus Photo R1900

27 August 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 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: The Stylus Photo R1900 is a £369 inc VAT B-size (13in by 19in) desktop printer with pigment-based inks, advanced paper-handling capabilities and productivity features aimed at serious amateurs and professional photographers.
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...
Excerpt: A3+ printers are probably overkill for most people, but they're ideal if you need to print poster-sized photos or full-bleed A3 proofs. The downside is that most A3+ printers are both huge and hugely expensive.
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...
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.
Summary: Az A3 és A3+-os mezőnybe az Epson a Stylus Photo R1900-zal nevezett be, amely azóta TIPA díjat is nyert. Az egyszerű kezelésű, mindenféle sallangoktól mentes nyomtató ára közel kétszerese a tavaly bemutatott, szintén A3+ méretű nyomatokat előállító Stylus Photo 1400-énak.
Pros: 8 színű K3 Ultrachrome tintarendszer, Színenkénti csere lehetősége, Vízálló nyomatok, Tekercspapír támogatása, Nyomtatás CD-re vagy DVD-re, A3+ nyomtatás lehetősége
Cons: Dokumentum nyomtatás A4-es asztali készülékekhez képest lassú (A3-asok között viszont jó!), Nincs hálózati illetve firewire csatlakozó, Manuális fejigazítás
