I've been using Epson printers for almost two decades and have never experienced anything like this. You'd be better sending eve

Summary: While this printer produces gorgeous prints when it actually prints, it very infrequently prints. Every time I try to print, one of the cartridges needs to be replaced. It then cleans all the printer heads. By the time it's done, another cartridge needs to be replaced and so on..
Summary: I purchased my R1900 in January 2009. I used it a fair amount through 2011. It still works but I just can't bear the ink cartridge changes unless I'm printing 11X17 that our other printer won't do.
In theory, a great printer. In reality, a lot less.

Summary: The first Epson printer I owned was the Epson Stylus Photo 1270 bought in 2000/1 - it was a work horse and lasted for years. When it finally died (after I had paid to get it overhauled and decided not to put any more money into it) I bought the R1900.
Summary: for reference: i am on a mac 10.7.5 using Adobe CS 5.1 This is the issue you will experience with every print you do: GENERAL ERROR. This error basically prevents you from print a full size page of the print.
Summary: This printer sucks. It has a hard time gripping the paper. It also always has to warm up by making a lot of loud unnecessary sounds. The heads always have to be cleaned, you'll see, as the paper will be cast with tones of magenta and other colors.
Summary: I have this printer, and have always used the Manufacturer's ink. It is constantly clogging up, and when I clean it, it uses up almost all the ink in ALL the ink cartridges; not just the clogged one. It costs over $100 to resupply ink that was wasted in cleaning.
Summary: I had an Epson Stylus Photo 1280 for years, and I was pretty satisfied with it. When it finally gave out, I was happy to buy another Epson Stylus Photo, thinking the R1900 would be an upgrade. Absolutely not. I had the R1900 for 2 1/2 years, and it just died. It was a pain from the beginning.
Summary: heads clog, company doesn't stand behind it's lemon products once it is a year old. Worked beautifully the first couple months - then the ink had to be switched out everytime I used it. If you don't use one of these everyday they stop working - they have faulty chips at the heads. Save your money!!!
Summary: Customers DON"T BUY THIS PRINTER unless you are willing to spend lots of money on ink cartridges. I bought this printer about a year ago just for photo printing and it has been nothing but a waste of money and time every time I try to use this piece of junk it seems it needs new in cartridges doen't...
Summary: This printer was defective out of the box. I called up their "customer support" multiple times and spent hours on the phone talking to various dimwits who recommended everything from pushing the ink nozzle cleaner button to putting cleaning sheets through it. IT NEVER MADE A SINGLE PRINT!
