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.
Summary: I love the noiseless printing, no noisy clanking grinding, It is very quiet and smooth. I expected this printer to be head and heels above other printers I have used HP 7550, HP 8250, but was a bit disappointed when it was not or maybe it is more complicated to get the quality of the image displayed...
Great Home Photoprinter - Ink Costs are Significant

Summary: I've had this printer for one year. I don't know how many prints I've made, but certainly hundreds. Everything from 4x6s to 8x12s (on specially cut paper - works like a charm). Print Quality - Excellent I use profiled monitors and a paper-specific profile from a third party paper source.
Summary: I have read the other reviews and wanted to throw my opinion in. We have purchased one of these printers at work. I have turned out some really nice stuff on them. However,... The one reviewer who said that the artwork on the discs is flat is correct.
Summary: An earlier reveiw trashed this printer listing several specific complaints/problems he/she's had including a bad experience with Epson's tech support. I've been using the R800 for about a month now and have no complaints about this well built machine.
Summary: I generally like the Printer. It is very quiet, so much so that I often wonder if it has stopped. The only real noise is the ejecting and auto-feeding of the papers. It also uses quite a bit of ink but probably no more than any other high quality printer.
Summary: After my Epson 960 went south on me after less than one year, I called Epson and they talked me into an exchange for this printer (for an additional $150 which I thought was a good bargain) This printer is outstanding.
Good, but finicky. Solved CD/DVD printing problem!

Summary: I also had horrific problems trying to print CDs/DVDs. Spent the better part of a day trying to get the printer to accept a disc. Tried everything I could think of. It was a Sunday, and Epson Customer Service was closed.
Summary: I've had this printer a couple of months now but haven't printed a whole lot of photos on it. Setup was quite quick following the instructions provided. Using glossy premium paper from both Epson and Kodak I was able to print excellent pictures.
