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.
Summary: I have owned many printers...but I have to say I love this printer the best so far. It's so versatile. The prints on Epson photo glossy paper look like they just came from the lab. I'm still amazed after two weeks. Prints on coated inkjet CDs are a bit under saturated.
