Ink Hungry Nozzle Clogger

Summary: The printer seems to get head clogs any time I transport it. This is something that my 2 year old r1800 has no problem with. When running the nozzle cleaning cycles it eats through a bunch of ink, and usually takes several tries.
Two stars because the prints are all right, when it decides to print

Summary: Cutting straight to the chase, I use Macs almost exclusively. Every time I buy an Epson, I swear it will be the last time because Epson simply does not know how to do drivers for Macs. But, at this price point, there are no better alternatives.
Drinks ink like there's no tomorrow, full of bugs on Mac OS X Leopard, just a miserable experience overall

Summary: I'm a professional photographer. I've owned many Epson printers over the last 10 years. Setting up the R1900 on a Mac Pro running OS X Leopard is by far the worst experience I've ever had with setting up any printer on any operating system. The driver for Leopard didn't ship with the printer.
Summary: For this review, I'll be comparing to my designed-for-matte-paper Canon Pixma Pro9500 photo printer. The Epson R1900 photo printer is designed more for glossy prints, so it's interesting to compare the two.
Summary: I bought this printer last year as I started my architecture studies. It does print beautifully, but BEWARE of the cost of the ink! I had read such reviews on Amazon, but dismissed them. Don't make the same mistake. There are 8 cartridges, and they cost about £10-£12 each.
