Prints fine pictures... if it will take the paper

Summary: I've owned this printer for several years. I've not printed with it too often but when I do I use Epson's Velvet Fine Art Super B format (13x19). The printer is very picky as to whether or not it will accept this paper. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. This has been incredibly frustrating.
After 7 years of use and printing thousands of prints...

Summary: I want to start out by saying this printer is still working even though the printer had stopped early this year because it has a self stop mechanism that forces you to replace your printer or bypass the stop (with a pc only) and continue to use the printer without the consent of the mighty Epson (Seiko Corp). Of course why would they care if the warranty has been over for sometime?
Summary: We received the Epson printer during my daughter's college finals. She wasn't able to spend time setting it up and using it until completing her finals. When she finally set it up to print some family photos it wouldn't feed, then once we got it to feed it went right through without printing. Was reprimanded by seller that waited too long to return. Took to repair shop and they said Epson's are generally unrepairable and I bought a very expensive paperweight.
Summary: I have used this printer since 2005. it has travelled well, been shipped, and moved across several states and it has performed no matter where i am. The print quality is fantastic and it prints very well on all types of papers. The ink itself can be pricey, but if you use the economy settings when you need to it can help.
Summary: I used to think Epson Printers were great. I have had two Epson Stylus Photo 2200 printers. The first was new and worked great right out of the box. The second I got used and is still working well. Then I bought a new R2880 (see my Buyer Beware review to read how terrible that printer was). I got my R2400 used from a friend who bought it new. It might be okay for B&W printing, but I am an artist and need to reproduce high quality accurate prints of my paintings.
Summary: All the problems you see in the bad reviews appearing here are exactly the problems I encountered with this expensive, poorly-designed mess of a printer. After realizing that I had purchased a printer that had major flaws that would never improve, I understood I had been duped by Epson who has done nothing to rectify the situation and doesn't seem to care that their product is a lemon.
Summary: Damn great printer. A bit finicky about feeding anything other than bond paper and you need to use the rear feeder for anything thicker. At least mine does. However, the print quality is superb!
Summary: If you want to buy this photo printer please give up right now. Because it is really nightmare. It is not printer only sickening also. you can spend kilogram ink,a hundred glossy paper,hours at the end you produce one photo. If you calculate all one picture is 100 usd.
