Excerpt: I bought a new printer for my home use. It is Epson Stylus Photo R800. This is a quite economic printer if compared with another similar performance and very suitable on such recession situation. This is not a new product.
Summary: I was afraid to leave my aged Epson printer behind. It had done so much for me. However, this printer has allayed my fears. Same Epson quality with more bells and whistles. Excellent performance and the full warrantee. Exactly what an aspiring photographer needs to complete the job.
Summary: The Epson R800 is one of the few printers that can print wide panoramas on roll paper. I use my Canon powershot to take a series of panoramas and stitch them together using PhotoStitch, and I print them on 4" roll paper, usually about 24" wide. I bought an Epson refurbished, which did not work on arrival (heads could not be successfully cleaned). I took it to an Epson authorized service center who replaced the print head under warranty. Worked great when I got it back.
