Summary: I owned a Epson R1800 and had good luck with it until it began the 2 flashing red LEDs on the buttons. A Google search of the problem I found out the only fix was to trash the 1800 and buy a new R2000. Which I did. Upon receiving the new one, I installed it per the fast setup instructions. During the installation, it crashed stating it was unable to uninstall the R1800 and would not allow the Easy Photo Print to install.
Summary: The wireless setup is a pain in the ass. The direct wireless setup does not work unlike all the other wireless printers we have on the network. A USB cable which is not included is required to then setup the wireless connection. Years ago I vowed never to buy Epsom products because of the setup problems. My wife wanted this particular print; I'd hoped that Epsom had changed. They haven't.
Summary: this is one of the worst decision I have made , very expensive told one thing get it home does not do the one thing I bought it for, very poor setup instructions on line does not answer questions.
Excerpt: 1. does not print, 2. feeds multiple blank pages between printed pages. 3. will print 2 to 3 pages then put out up to 15 blank pages. 4. does not pull paper 5. pulls paper 1/4 way then stops The most frustrating printer we have ever owned. You must hit the paper feed button after each blank page to continue with printing. 1 star only because when it finally prints it is beautiful.
Summary: I have had this printer for about 3 months and I can tell you the amount of frustration this printer causes is not worth the trouble. It sometimes recognizes my network but most of the time it doesn't. I takes me hours to finally get my computer to talk to the printer. Do not buy this printer if you are going wireless!
Excerpt: I had bought this printer because of the alleged versatility and was disappointed. I consider it a lemon. If I print anything other than 24 lb bond paper, the paper feeder balks every 2-3 sheets and spits out a blank. I wanted the printer primarily to print small batches of post cards. Followed the directions found on the Epson creative website to the letter. The printer does not cooperate and the Epson tech support has no knowledge of their own website suggestions.
Cons: Excessive Self-diagnosis, Paper Feeder Is Skittish, Too much ink used, Unreliable
Summary: I run a small invitation business. I purchased this printer about a year ago in hope that it would become my major work horse printer after I had read many exceptional views. I don't know if there are words for how many headaches it has given me from print heads that clog after sitting idol for only 3 days to not connecting wirelessly. I have overcome these issues, however my biggest issue is PAPER FEEDING. It simply will not pick up my paper.
