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.
Summary: Where do I even start? I guess I should say the very first print it made was acceptable, and that it still looks good sitting, worthless, on the shelf one month and 15 prints after purchase. I am about $700 into the printer, ink and paper, and I do not have a single viable print to show for it.

Summary: I replaced my Epson 1400 printer, with the Epson R1900. Believe it, or not, the Epson R1900 had worst printing quality than the Epson 1400. Another important fault, was that the R1900 colors were too far off from screen colors (even after monitor calibration).
Summary: Bought this a year and a half ago and wasn't even able to insert ink cartridges. Amazon replaced machine promptly (2 thumbs up!) and the second printer worked fine for the first 20 13x19 prints I printed, although it is a voracious ink sucker!
Summary: I really wish I'd read this before I bought my R1900 a few months ago. Not only does it use ink at a horrific rate, more than half the time the new, Epson replacement cartridge isn't recognized.
Summary: I am extremely disappointed with this printer. I got it as a backup for my old Epson 2200 and have had nothing but problems since I got it. Evidentially Epson prefers to keep coming out with new models that continue to have the same problems instead ...
Summary: I bought the Epson 1900 to back up a old 2200 I have and have had nothing but problems since. To start off it eats through inks getting half the total square inch coverage I get on my 2200. I have had continuous paper feeding issues using Epson papers.
Summary: The printer was sold as fully checked but failed to print correctly. It cost me a new set of inks as the ones supplied were opened. Amazon gave me back the money for the printer but refused to compensate me for the inks. Buyer beware. I will think hard before buying from Amazon again.
