takes a bit of work, calibration wise... most important: USE GOOD PAPER

Summary: I purchased this printer so I could make larger-format prints of my watercolor paintings, which are pretty detailed and vibrant. I'll skip the technical details and get right to the stuff that always vexes me as far as printers: color calibration.
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.
Summary: There are not too many printers in this price range that are capable of printing on roll photo paper, but the R1900 by Epson is one of them that does an excellent job! The ink cartridges are way too small and expensive for this printer.
Summary: I gave this printer (Epson R1900) 4 stars for one reason. INK! The cartridges are so small you'll be ordering ink all the time. Amazon is about the only place to get this ink. On one hand, I should of waited and got the Epson 3880 with larger ink cartridges that cost MUCH less by volume.
Summary: I bought this printer about 2 weeks ago. I do think this is a really good printer but I think there is space for better quality prints. I know this is one of the top of the line printers, So I hope in the future printing becomes a little more up to grade.
Summary: I had the Epson R1800 for 6yrs. before it finally gave up, so I purchased the R1900 because it is the next step printer post 1800. The 1900 eliminated the blue ink and replaced it with orange, other than that it is basically the same machine.
Summary: I've owned this printer for about a year now and I think it performs reasonably well. There are two significant issues with the unit I own: 1) Occasionally it will refuse to recognize a replaced cartridge, but Epson has been very good about sending free replacements.
Summary: I received my Epson, fired it up, and it made a horrible whining/grinding noise. I thought, man, this thing is toast. I tried a few more times and the print head wouldn't engage. So I called Epson, and they sent me a brand new unit right away.
Summary: I have owned the R1800, and I was very satisfied with the result. I got an R1900, and it is fantastic with color pictures. It took me a while to get all the settings right, but once I got them dialed in, Wowow!
