It is non-functional to me and a waste of my money
5 June 2015
Summary: The printer was advertised as operational. It arrived with aftermarket inks so I changed them all to genuine Epson inks. After multiple cleanings, I was unable to get two printer heads to print. It is non-functional to me and a waste of my money.
Summary: I bought this printer when it was new so I paid full list for it. After having it for 2 years.. I have manged to get less that twenty images printed on it. Paper loading is imposable, when you do get it to print it eats ink like crazy. It always seems to need "cleaning" i.e.

Summary: If I could give this piece of junk printer 0 stars, I would. First of all, I can't believe that Epson says this is Vista compatible when they do not and will not ever support the firewire interface on this printer. Beyond that, this thing uses ridiculous amounts of very expensive ink.
Not user friendly. Printer ink dries and jams the system too quickly. Other problems as well.

Summary: I bought this printer for commercial purposes and now it sits unused. The printer does not print heavyweight stock (notecard) or multiples well. Inks are too expensive to make a commerical project pay.
Summary: I haven't been able to get the Print CD capability to work on my printer yet, which is the entire reason I bought it in the first place. I've been talking to Epson technical support, but they can't seem to figure it out.
Summary: Most manufacturers sell you a printer cheap and then they gig you on the ink cartridges. Epson charges you a lot for a printer that only does a fair job of printing photos then they raise the ink gigging to a high art form.
Summary: Great photo quality printer, but ink cartridges are tiny and run about $14 apiece for the 8 cartridges needed. HOWEVER, at some point in its life one gets an error message that says "your printer has reached the end of its service life.
Summary: When my R800 works it's awesome, but that's rarely the case. Wether it's having to change the ink cartridges every other day or the paper jamming or just not loading for 90% of the print jobs. Very frustrating printer to own.
Summary: I cannot begin to tell you how much I HATE this printer. Which is unfortunate, because it prints beautiful photos... once in a while. If you don't mind replacing three cartridges every time you want to print two photos, then you might not mind this printer as much as I do.
