Summary: Do NOT but this printer. I have had 2 of these printers. I have so many issues with this printer. I have had the same issues with the printer not recognizing new genuine ink cartridges. I also have severe issues with the printer not being able to feed heavy weight paper. It will just not feed the paper and error over and over. I have to hand feed it and sometimes it will work but most of the time not. When it does feed the paper, it will NOT ever feed straight.
Summary: I already was lucky to own an R1900 so purchased this one to have as a back up. If you want a 13" top quality printer that gives you the longevity of Pigment inks and the punchy color of a dye based printer, this is the printer for you. Highly recommended!
Summary: I use this printer for both plain paper and photo printing. It does an excellent job at both. So far for photos, I've only printed on premium glossy paper and I'm very satisfied with the results. Color and clarity are very, very good. The largest size print I've done so far is 8x10 and the speed is satisfactory. Its slightly faster than the HP unit that I had before it broke down.
Summary: I CAN'T GIVE A REVIEW BECAUSE THIS PRINTER IS ONLY USED FOR PARTS IT IT A BROKEN PRINTER. I DON'T KNOW WHAT MORE TO SAY BUT THAT I WILL USE IT FOR PARTS AND I STILL HAVE NOT CHECKED IF THE PARTS I NEED ARE WORKING OR NOT.
Summary: It was a disaster at first. First printer that was sent didn't work. The tec-support section was horrible and incompetent. After three weeks I finally got a replacement after having to deal with corporate folks before any resolution. The replacement printer is truly a great printer. I've had no problems with it and the colors are excellent. I'm doing giclee prints that are coming out with all the clarity of the originals.
Summary: I am using this printer under Linux. Before I go back to what this printer is, IMHO, let me re-cap, for the few Unix users out there: * O/S Variant: Gentoo Linux, It really doesn't matter. * Connectivity: USB, and USB only. T * Spooler: CUPS, version 1.4.5. PPD file is the standard cups Gutenprint "driver" for this exact printer. * I tried the Epson/Avasys ESC/P-R driver and managed to re-compile the package.
Summary: Printer puts out amazing pictures. It is also faster than I expected it to be after reading reviews where people complained about the print speed. My only complaint is the lack of networking capabilities on the printer but other than that it is a great photo printer
Summary: I'm admittedly biased to Epson printers as their hardware and software (drivers) offer the best quality on the market, but they've taken the R1800 and made it even better with the R1900. The R1900 is the ONLY pigment printer currently on the market that can create believable glossy prints. I'm not sure why Epson hasn't gone the gloss optimizer route on their more expensive models like the 3880, 4800, 9800, etc.
