    5-0 out of 5 stars RIGHT from the start
    Seldom have I been so pleased with a purchase!

    UNLIKE the Microtek scanner I previously owned that gave me nothing but aggravation from the git-go, I loaded the software, plugged the Epson 4990 in with the included USB cable and, using Photoshop as the platform, IMMEDIATELY scanned an 8 x 10 page of medium format negatives successfully.Eyeballing the colors, I did not think ANY correction was needed.I had NO PROBLEMS loading the software or with anything else.

    I subsequently read the CD contained instructions and found that I had failed to use the 8 x 10 transparent media placement guide.It worked ANYWAY!

    This scanner is particularly suited for "serious" amateur and professional photographers.It comes with negative holders for 35mm, 120 and 4 x 5 sheet film.In addition, as noted above, it will also scan the whole 8 x 10 inch area so you can do proof sheets from your transparent negative file pages.

    I also scanned a music CD cover and liner, using Photoshop to convert the liner to black and white, and a 4 x 6 color photo.The scanner worked perfectly on all.The resolution of the four to six point type of the CD liner was crisp.This was a scan as a reflective image and NOT using OCR software.

    I have only had it for a week and will update this review once I've tried its OCR capabilities. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing to say the least!
    I bought my R1800 two weeks ago and it's fabulous! I've been doing quite a bit of photo retouching in PhotoShop and was anxious to see some of my work in large format. The resulting output totally exceeded my expectations! I was also surprised at the speed at which such fine output was generated. I was somewhat concerned about the cost of maintaining an 8-color system as the cost of replacement cartridges ranges between $12.99 and $14.99, but I've done quite a bit of printing and the color levels have barely budged (and I use the setting for the highest print quality). This is truly a great printer for digital photographers, scrapbookers, and PhotoShop enthusiasts like me. It's an incredible piece of equipment.

    1-0 out of 5 stars printer arrived dead
    I ordered the eagerly awaited R1800 on first day of availability from Amazon.When shipped, item arrived dead.Printer carriage did not move into position, soink cartridges could not be loaded. Defective printer was returned to Amazon (which promptly credited the return, including postage).

    On this single anecdotal incident, I do not fault either Epson or Amazon. Stuff happens.Perhaps damage in shipping.I merely provide this information for consumer information, in case other buyers have the same problem.

    My star rating is nominal, since unit received did not function at all

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beats any lab prints
    The Epson R1800 is built like a tank.Upon first inspection out of the box, you will be suprised at it's size.Set-up out of the box was a breeze.About 10 minutes of unwrapping everything and software installation and I was ready to print.

    The first prints came out amazing.I used to work in a one hour photo lab with a Noritsu QSS-3011, basically the Cadallic of mini-lab printers.The best of the best.I am college student majoring in photography so quality is #1 to me.I would always print my pictures at the lab and fine tune each print so I would get the best.With this printer, I get nearly the EXACT SAME QUALITY.Which is nothing short of amazing considering we are talking about a lab machine that is in the costs of tens of thousands of dollars.The prints that I have printed from the R1800 rival the quality of that from the Nortisu lab printer.

    The 8 inks provide a cost effective method instead of replacing one expensive color tank when just one color runs out.You can just replace whatever color you run out of.

    The R1800 prints bordless sizes up to 13" in width.It can print panoramics from 4" to 13" from rolls of paper. Imgaine having a 13" by 44" panoramic on your wall!With the R1800, it's just that easy.

    The R1800 can also print on CD's, which is a neat feature, but one that I probably won't use too much until I get ready to graduate and create portfolio CD's with my work on them.

    5,760 x 1,440 optimized dpi resolution is what makes these prints so amazingly crisp in quality.

    The speed of the printer is pretty impressive too.11x14's in under 3 minutes?4x6's in under 45 seconds?Yes please!

    I believe the best paper I've used with R1800 is Epson's Premium Luster paper.It's semi glossy with a sheer luster to it that makes the color and contrast hold of the paper look amazing.

    If you are even an amatuer photographer and care about the quality of your printers and are in the market for an at home studio printer, you cannot go wrong with the R1800.I would reccommend nothing else. ... Read more

    US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan Product Description

    Compact yet powerful, the Epson Stylus Pro 4000 desktop inkjet printer features the latest (2004) inkjet, print-head, and printer-engine technologies in order to meet the needs of the most demanding graphics professionals. With Epson's UltraChrome Ink technology, the Stylus Pro 4000 will produce archival-quality prints with high color fidelity while providing consistently stable colors designed to significantly outperform standard-dye inks.

    To maximize the use of its ink technology, Epson developed a unique print head capable of handling eight separate ink cartridges simultaneously. This lets the Epson Stylus Pro 4000 handle both photo-black and matte-black inks at the same time so it can maximize the black density on virtually any media type. Even better, the printer's high-performance, one-inch-wide print head produces an astonishing resolution of 2,880 x 1,440 dpi, setting a new Epson standard for quality and speed.

    Handling virtually any media type in roll or cut sheets up to 17 inches wide, the Stylus Pro 4000's built-in high-capacity paper tray holds up to 250 sheets of plain letter-sized paper or up to 50 sheets of 17-by-22-inch photographic media. Choose from four different ways to load media, including a front-loading straight-through path for media up to 1.5 mm posterboard. A built-in automatic media cutter greatly simplifies roll printing.

    What about print speed? For graphics and prepress proofing, the printer can produce everyday production-quality 13-by-19-inch prints in 2 minutes, 23 seconds and contract-quality proofs in just 7 minutes, 49 seconds. For professional photography, the Stylus Pro 4000 produces photo-lab quality 8-by-10-inch prints in 3 minutes, 48 seconds and 16-by-20-inch prints in 10 minutes, 25 seconds. And, for CAD and GIS, you'll get draft-quality 17-by-22-inch prints in 90 seconds and photo-quality 17-by-22-inch prints in 5 minutes, 58 seconds.

    Enjoy the benefits of two user-exchangeable ink modes (photographic or dual CMYK). The photographic ink mode is ideal for any photographic or graphic design project where image quality is important. It uses cyan, light cyan, magenta, light magenta, yellow, photo black, light black, and matte black. The dual CMYK ink mode takes advantage of Epson's Matte Black ink technology to produce outstanding photographic prints on plain paper. It uses two of each primary color to deliver speeds up to 98 percent faster than the photographic ink mode. Plus, exclusive "light black" ink significantly improves the printer's gray balance while eliminating color casts and improving the midtones and highlights for smooth transitions.

    The PictureMate from Epson is a photo printer designed to produce lab-quality prints from the comfort of your own home. With its simple one-touch printing, 5,760 x 1,440 maximum dpi resolution, and convenient PictureMate Print Packs, this printer is a remarkable combination of quality, ease of use, and affordability.
    Wide Compatibility
    Slots for digital camera memory cards in several formats

    The PictureMate prints JPEG or TIFF photos from any USB digital camera and is compatible with both Mac and PC operating platforms. A wide variety of card types are also accepted, including CF Type I and II, SmartMedia, Sony Memory Stick/MemoryStick PRO, Duo (requires adapter), SD, MMC, and xD-Picture.

    The printer initially comes with a starter photo cartridge and 20 sheets of paper. Thereafter, you'll purchase PictureMate Print Packs, which contain 100 sheets of paper and a photo ink cartridge with an approximate 100-page yield.

    Prints That Last and Stay Beautiful
    Original print (left), then a spill-and-wipe test on leading glossy and semi-gloss papers (two middle) and on PictureMate (right)

    The prints resist water, smudging, and most notably fading. Epson estimates an archival lifetime of up to 200 years if the photos are kept in a relatively dark place (such as a photo album) or up to 100 years in a frame (see Epson's web site for details). True borderless printing (or bordered, if you prefer) combined with sturdy stock help to give your prints a professional look and feel. A cartridge level indicator lets you know how much ink you have left.

    Easy Operation
    Simple menus and one-touch buttons make printing a snap!

    Other features include a multiple print function that lets you make up to 100 copies of a single picture. A Save Photo button lets you back up digital files directly to an external CD-R, Zip drive, or USB Thumb drive.

    The small 10-by-6-inch footprint fits neatly onto your desk or countertop, and the convenient handle provides true portability. An optional Bluetooth adapter lets you print wirelessly from Bluetooth enabled devices. The PictureMate is backed by a one-year limited warranty.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding capabilities, Remarkable Results!
    I love this printer! I bought it for two reasons - the reviews it received for its photo printing quality, and for the simple fact that I can print directly on my CDs and DVDs. Skipping the labeling part of burning a CD is such an amazing thing - and the quality of the picture burned on the CD/DVD is nothing short of Outstanding. It takes a bit longer to print on the CD, because the printer draws the CD into the housing and checks the alignment of the CD for a few seconds before printing. The result is worth the wait, as I did not have to even manually adjust the print position on the CD (using the software-based adjustment within Epson Print CD). The box included 3 of the Epson Borderless Glossy 4X6 photo paper, and this is an awesome idea. I took my favorite picture, and printed it in under a minute in amazing quality. The picture is a dead giveaway for a standard developed photo, and did not need to be cropped or otherwise cut after being printed - It went straight into my 4X6 frame with no other manipulation. I love it!
    The things left to be determined are: 1. How long will I be able to go before having to buy ink, and 2. Will the ink on the photo last as long as Epson claims it will last.
    In short, if you do a lot of CD or DVD burning, or you want a printer that can handle photo printing and give you a borderless, effort free 4X6, %x& or 8X10, this printer is for you!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic !!!
    Awesome photo quality prints! Not the fastest printer for word processing, etc, but certainly fast enough. Multiple ink cartridges helps save $$ on ink. R800, along w/ Epson glossy photo paper = professionally developed-looking prints, that are waterproof as well !!! Can't go wrong w/ this printer. I use it for photo prints, as well as, a general all-purpose printer, which I have hooked up to a wireless print server in my home, for all to use. DVD/CD printing has also worked flawlessly since I got it (about 3 months ago) No problems. Just awesome!

    4-0 out of 5 stars I'm in love!
    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. Also if you want the best quality and water proof photos you have to use Epson paper.

    This is a wonderful printer for photo enthusiasts and the geek who wants the novelty of printing on CDs. However if you do not intend to print on a regular basis do not buy this printer. The pigmented ink will clog the head with infrequent use.

    I would give it five stars if it were a bit faster. I still love it though.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Photos and CD/DVD Printing -- This thing is Awesome!
    I have had my r800 for around two months now and let me tell you this thing is awesome (and I have had quite a few printers in my day).

    CD/DVD printing is really why I bought it but the photos are top notch. I have printed over 300 Cd-R and DVD-R and they just look Terrific. I also have printed DVD Cases and 8x10 photos that just amaze me at the clarity.

    Price for cartridges are still kinda of high (was supposed to be $8 each but they are $12-$15) -- Eight cartridges so if you want the most bang for your buck I think Canon has some nice choices(This can be expensive). Overall I feel this is the best photo and cd/dvd printer under $1000 --

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very pleased
    I am very pleased with my Epson R800. This is my second Epson and I am retiring my HP photo printer for this one. I have had it for about 3 weeks and it is wonderful. Prints are gorgeous, very fast with printing documents and extremely quiet. My only problem is I cannot get it to properly print envelopes (#10). Could someone who owns this printer be of assistance? Other than that, it is a great printer. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars One of the best Photo Printers Available
    I've read all the prior reviews with interest. I bought my 1280 over a year ago based on reviews on several well known and trusted Digital Photography sites. I have been very pleased with the output of this printer. Yes, the printer takes more work to get a really GOOD print then the HPs. But then I have the HP printers also and they do not measure to pure quality of print. Yes, the ink cartridges are small and do not last long if you print alot of 8x10, 13x19 like I do. But, for 250 bucks you can buy a CIS (continual inking system) that pays for itself in 3 months. Yes, the Epson ink will jam the heads IF you do not use the printer at least once every few days. Again, the printer is for PHOTOGRAPHS, not text, not the occasional print job and certainly not the occasional picture. This printer is for the professional or serious amateur photographer. I have seen alot of prints from other printers and even with the flaws, this printer is the best. I wish a few things. Epson would update the drivers more often. The supplied software is marginally usable and they ding you 30 bucks for the real package. At 400 dollars for a printer, Epson could have given us the software given the price tag of the ink cartridges. I have run Epson, Illford and Inkjetart paper through this printer will very good success.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Pro Quality Printer for serious Users w/Deep Pockets
    I teach digital photography and computer graphics for a living. The community college I work for has had a 1280 for 2 years now. Students beat the heck out of this machine and it keeps chugging along with few complaints. We really put this machine through its paces by running water color paper and all sorts of media through it.

    And yes, we use MACs for graphics, which is the way it should be! Epson has a great driver for OS X Jaguar. Download it from their website. Don't blame Epson if you're crummy Windoze XP goes belly up. It's NOT the printer....

    That said, it's not a perfect printer. It really does suck ink like Kool-Ade. I'll be looking into the Lysonic inkset for this problem. Epson should have put individuals ink tanks on this thing the way Canon did on the i960.
    It really is designed for high volume. The more we print, the better it seems to work. So do not buy this printer if you only occasionally print 4x6 snapshots. If left to sit, the nozzles clog and you need to ship it back to Epson fro repair. It should have a user replaceable head like the Canon i960.
    As for software, you should have Adobe Photoshop 6.0 or later. If you think you'll get a decent print from Jasc, Corel, or some other silly program, you'll be frustrated.
    Some of the best Photo Quality inkjet papers are made by Ilford. Give them a try with this printer and you'll be impressed. It can even output negatives onto transparency material that you can contact print in a darkroom. Although I use this printer at the college where I teach, for my money the Canon i960 is a better value. Print quality is just as good, and the individual ink tanks will save you much cash.
    So my recommendation for the Epson 1280 is with reservations. Make sure you really need a large format printer at home, and be prepared to shell out the bucks and toss out ink carts that are 75% full. Otherwise, look into Canon's printers.

    4-0 out of 5 stars I just got it...
    I just set up my new Epson Stylus 1280 printer. It works great with my iMac computer. The only drawback I can see is that I was looking for a printer that used separate cartridges, and this one doesn't. Otherwise, it prints beautiful pictures, although I like the ones I printed on the Matte paper better than the ones I printed on the Glossy paper. It prints great documents, too. I think I'll keep it, for awhile.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Save your $$
    These inkjets are OK but you can get superior results at a cheaper cost by taking your digital images to someplace like Walmart or CVS or Walgreens. Ink is way over-priced and the photos are not as good as what you can get elsewhere.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Driver issues and OS 10.3.3
    I have been using this printer for about 2 years now with a Dual PowerMac G4 with 1GB RAM. Most of the time it delivers good prints, therefore it receives at least 2 stars. I said most of the time because the printer works a bit unpredictably. On upgrading to OS 10.3.3 and upgrading the driver to 1.6bA (release date March 6, 2004), the printer refuses to finish prints once they begin. I have been printing 13x19 pages and it works fine about 50% through the document. It will then stall, stop the print, extract the paper, put the print on hold and when you go to the printer utility to the start print button, it will print from the beginning again and stall midway.
    I contacted Epson about the situation and they emailed me back with their copy and paste email response with the generic (condenesed version): go to the macintosh HD and delete your Epson Driver Folder and go to and download the driver, follow the instructions and reinstall. And of course, it did not work. The problems persist which means the printer is not compatible yet with OS 10.3 no matter how much Epson swears it does. I have resent Epson emails and they have not responded. ... Read more

    Designed with the serious graphics user in mind, Epson's Stylus Photo 2200 is stylish and fast and comes packed with user-friendly features. With Epson's new seven-color UltraChrome inks and three times as many nozzles as the popular Stylus 2000P, the 2200 is able to print 8-by-10-inch color photos in under two minutes (in fine mode). The UltraChrome inks are formulated to resist water and light damage and to ensure longevity, all while providing more colors than any other pigment ink on the market.

    The versatile 2200 makes it easy to print on envelopes, roll paper, and many types and sizes of single-sheet paper.
    A maximum resolution of 2,880 x 1,440 dpi (both color and black and white) results in amazingly accurate prints. The 4-picoliter droplets are the equivalent of 2-picoliter droplets in ordinary dye-base systems, resulting in ultrafine detail and clarity. Interchangeable standard and matte black ink cartridges help you get the best quality from black-and-white prints, while the included Film Factory(TM) with PRINT Image Matching Support software ensures that prints from compatible digital cameras are true to the original image.

    The 2200 supports a wide variety of paper types, including glossy, semi-glossy, luster, matte, and Epson's velvet fine art paper, as well as large-format sizes up to 13 by 44 inches. With the included roll paper holder and built-in automatic cutter, you can print borderless images easily, while a photo catcher neatly stacks multiple prints as they are cut.

    Compatible with both Mac and PC systems, the 2200 comes backed with a one-year Epson exchange warranty.

    Printer, AC power supply and cord, seven ink cartridges (cyan, light cyan, magenta, light magenta, yellow, light black, photo black), roll paper holder accessory, roll paper cutter and catcher; printer cable not included

    5-0 out of 5 stars Do you need a semi pro photo printer?
    I've had my Epson 2200 for about six weeks. With free shipping Amazon's price was best on the net. Looked at Canon's and Epson's lower end models. I thought the Epson outperformed the Canon tonally. Have done about 45 8x10 glossies with medium grade Epson paper. Not disappointed in the output. Two pics were banded and short colored. Did a basic head cleaning and that corrected the problem. The light toned inks are used at slightly more than twice the rate of the dark tones. Am just now looking for a replacement for light magenta cartridge. I figure amortized cost per pic is about 1.25 per print with ink paper and printer costs combined. If you demand quality output for your pics with a fairly low volumne output, this is a hard printer to beat right now. If you're not too concerned about darker toning and flatter colors you can probably get by with something half as pricey. I'm delighted with mine.

    3-0 out of 5 stars BEWARE: Archival Inks are TERRIBLE for glossy
    The Epson 2200 uses archival inks that supposedly will last for 80 years...but the inks sacrifice the overall quality of the glossy prints...creating a 'bronzing issue'...which is to say that the prints have annoying reflections depending upon how they are viewed. There is also a dull sheen over the premium glossy photos that are distinctly inferior to the prints of the Epson 1280 or 820.

    There are other having to switch black ink cartridges when switching paper types from matte to glossy. Also, this printer cannot print borderless matte photos! Once the matte black cartridge is inserted, the software won't allow borderless. Using the glossy black will really sacrifice image quality.

    The matte photo results are very impressive, the colors are accurate and vibrant,this is where the printer outshines the competition. However, amongst Epson's own printers, the matte prints are no better than what you will achieve using the Epson 1280 or 820. The extra resolution is absolutely meaningless. I have scanned Medium Format there was plenty of detail to be distinguished when I ran a side by side comparison test of the 820 versus the 2200. Upon close inspection the lowly stylus 820 was as good and possibly even better in the resolution department. Absurd...but true! And those printers (1280 and 820) are far less expensive, more versatile and give incomparably better glossy photos. So what's the deal? If large matte is all you print, then the printer is excellent. If you want premiums glossy as well then don't make the same mistake I did. Get the 1280 instead.
    I would also add that the 2200 is of course considerably faster than the others(1280,820) when set at 720dpi(all things being equal). And it does an excellent job with text as well. So it is a bit more professional in that sense.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Prints as good as Ofoto
    I researched photo printers for weeks and read all the reviews. I wanted a dedicated photo printer for the best prints so I did not care about text or speed. I had decided on the Epson 960 based on the PC World review that rated it just below the 2200 and above the Canons. I went to Compusa and they did not have a 960 and were sold out of the 2200 for weeks. While I was looking at the other printers a shipment of 2200's rolled in, so I bought one. I compared identical prints from the 2200 to an Ofoto print on photographic based paper and I can say they are equivalent. The 2200 had a little less contrast but better shadow detail. With magnification the the grain was about the same on both prints. I used Premium Glossy paper. You do get some obscuring sheen when you look at the 2200 prints at an angle due the pigment based ink, but it is not a problem in my opinion. I then compared these to prints from my Epson Photo 780. With the naked eye there is not much detectable difference, but with magnification you can see the ink pattern on the 780 prints. The skin tones were not as realistic. I expect with various photos the differences would become more readily apparent. I think the 2200 is a great printer but a bit expensive. The 960 may be a good choice for less $$. I wish I could have compared them side by side.
    Addendum: Upon more research I've learned a big advantage of this printer over the 960 is the Ultrachrome pigment ink, which is water resistant and good for 80 years. All of the dye based inks apparently will start to fade in just a few years (or some in just a few months). There are also compatible generic papers (try This printer uses the same inks and has similar quality to Epson professional printers ... Getting the best prints with the 2200 may require a little tweaking of the settings and adjustments in Photoshop or the like, where you can set the contrast and color saturation to suit your eye. Plan to use some paper and ink experimenting. Professional photographers and artists like this printer a lot. It is outstanding for black and white and for artistic papers such as matte and card stock, and of course it prints pics up to 13 inches wide and 40+ long. If you want the best and have the know-how (or want to learn), this is the printer to get.

    1-0 out of 5 stars My Epson Experience
    My Epson Experience

    Let me begin by saying that I have over ten years of experience with all things computer related. During that period I have worked in almost every aspect of computer support. I have personally cleaned out countless numbers of inkjet printers with q-tips distilled water and alcohol. I kept my own Epson 740 going for 5 years without too much difficulty. I only got rid of it because I had a client that was desperate for a printer that would accept a Mac serial port. Boy due I miss that Epson 740.

    I bought a C82 a little less than a year ago, after reading good reviews. I assumed it would be built at least as well as the Epson 740 I was using before.

    Even after ten months my C82 still appears in almost brand new shape inside and out. Heck, I've only used it about thirty times or so. I keep it inside of cabinet shielded from dust. Plus as a matter of standard practice, I turn off all inkjet printers as soon as I finish using them, and I always change ink cartridges as quickly as possible to prevent ink from drying out inside printers.

    So was I ever surprised when my printer stopped working. It had worked fine with the first set of cartridges I had installed. However, as soon as I changed cartridges the printer stopped working. I tried cleaning it at least fifty times, but it did nothing to improve the situation. So I did the natural thing and googled my problem. I was shocked by the sheer number of search results.

    After reading through the reviews at Amazon and the hundreds of messages at I've come to realize that Epson has built and continue to build a printer that is so poorly designed one must question their integrity as a company. To think that so many people would experience the same problem and that their only solution is to continue to send people refurbished printers until their warranty expires.

    Oh, and the part that will really get you, is that they require you to purchase and install a new set of four Epson branded ink cartridges to insure that your currently installed cartridges are not what is defective. So before you can even have your printer replaced you must invest at least sixty dollars on ink. Of course they offer to send you new ink with the replacement printer. Still to ask me to sink my time, energy, and sixty dollars into having my printer replaced with another one, which will simply get me right back to where I began. I mean really, the nerve. Is this what our present day world has come to? Have we set ourselves up so that these large corporations can totally take advantage of us in this way? Is there no recourse? Are there no standards of business ethics that they can be held accountable for?

    The experience has left me feeling unusually sad. Epson has made me realize just how much I am at the mercy of these large corporations. I mean, if you want to print, who else can you buy a printer from?
    I know that even if Epson would own up to this, they would argue that they had to make the printers so cheaply to remain competitive. Without doing so they would go out of business tomorrow. We've heard all that before. Haven't we?

    Still though, this printer is made by someone in a Chinese factory. I know I'm going out on a limb here, but I would guess that that person is not well paid. Perhaps they are even exploited to some extent or at the very least we could guess that they are taken advantage of to some extent. Then as they role off the Chinese production line, Epson sends these defective printers all over the globe, wrapped up in fancy magazine advertisements. People like me buy the printer, use the ink, put in new ink, discover it no longer works, call Epson, ship the printer back to Epson, get the refurbished printer in the mail, and . Once the warranty is up we move our broken printer into the garage for a year or so, and then throw it away. It all seems so pointless.

    Don't think me a luddite either. I love computers, printers, and gadgets as much as the next person. It's just that it disgusts me that I am forced to deal with a corporation that is not held to any kind of moral or ethical principles. As long as they are making money and growing we think of them as a good thing, without worrying about who they are taking advantage of. What are we doing here? How can we let Epson get away with this? Really!

    Well it's not difficult for me to say I will be boycotting all Epson products in the future. I mean I'm sort of doubtful of their quality anyways. Oh and I haven't even mentioned the very unhelpful tech support and customer service representatives that I called long distance at my own expense. What a waste! Really what a waste!

    P.S. I know the solution is to buy myself a do-it-yourself printer cleaning kit. If you google it you'll see that many companies sell them specifically for the Epson C80/C82. However, if you try to buy one you'll soon discover that they are all sold out, as I mentioned before I'm not the only one with this problem.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great for batch scanning - except for the constant jams!
    I have thousands of prints on all manner of different papers.This feeder rarely makes it for more than ten photos before it jams.Still, the scanner and the software are very easy to use, and the software saves each image with an individual file name.So far I have scanned over 1000 pictures since I got the machine last week.

    My PC has a 3 Ghz chip and 1 Gig of RAM, and yet the Epson software responds slowly sometimes and seems a little buggy.I also agree with another reviewer's complaint that the Epson software insists on popping windows open on top of whatever else you are working on.

    The bottom line is that, when everything is working perfectly, it's a great scanner/software combo for converting your old prints to digital images.Just be prepared to have some patience sometimes.

    EDITED AFTER TWO WEEKS TO ADD that the feeder has been working better.Once you get the hang of this thing, you really can just load a bunch of pictures and walk away.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice but not perfect
    Interesting, though I like this scanner, I don't rate it quite as highly as others. I didn't have much luck loading more than 8 pictures at a time without the automatic feeder jamming. On further testing however, I realized I wasn't loading the pictures exactly the way the scanner directed. If you lift the automatic feeder and stuff the pictures all the way down, I had much better luck loading larger stacks and jamming less frequently. I did figure out, as others did, that you can keep feeding the stack before it finishes the last one, which saves you from going through 3 verification screens for each new stack.

    It had one slightly irritating habit of popping up a new scan window on each picture, so if you're doing something else on the computer, all of a sudden you're typing into the scan screen and hopefully not messing it up. But this wasn't too big an issue. If you don't use their SmartPanel app and go right to the lone "scan" utility, you don't get the popups.

    One drawback is that at one point we apparently went through a 5" X 7" picture developing stage which the automatic feeder can't handle. We had quite a stack of these and only 2 will fit on the glass. On the nice end though, if you separated the pictures enough, the scanner was able to provide you with 2 perfectly cropped images instead of 1 big one. It was a nice surprise also to find that it automatically rotates images that are slightly misaligned.

    So all in all I'm glad I bought this, it saved me lots of time, but it wasn't perfect. I scanned 1169 images in about 20 hours of time - though I was doing lots of other work while I did this so my time wasn't all eaten up managing the scanner. Could have been a lot worse.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent and Versatile
    Over the past 5 years, I have been scanning the family's photos.This involved a very manual process of laying out the pics on the scanner (an older epson), and then marking off the prints and scanning them.

    I've been looking for an automatic scanner since I began - one with a photo sheet feeder.I've considered a few, but the reviews all seemed to indicate jamming problems.

    When I saw this one for $169, I gave it a shot.

    It works incredibly well.The photo feeder will pull in up to 24 pics, scan and eject them.You can define the folders and the scan quality for the process.With photos that are in good condition, I have not had a single jam - very impressive.

    A number of photos I have were in albums, and after removing them are curled.The feeder did take these in too, but with occassional jamming.

    The automatic feeder in general though is very impressive.

    The process is not fast - probably about a minute per print.So this is not something to sit and wait for.Do something else and then come back to add prints, or set it up to do a stack at night.

    The scan qualities are very good.Color and sharpness are fine.The quality of the scan is dependent on the quality of the original of course, so expectations can't be too high for pics taken 30 yrs ago on 126 cartridge film. (Remember that?)

    I've also scanned using the flat bed - this works very well too.If you put multiple prints on the glass, and separate them with some space, the software will recognize them and scan them in as separate images.

    Slide scans are very good - but only 2 at a time.

    One note - the sheet feeder is an entirely separate cover for the scanner.To switch between flat bed scanning and sheet feeder, you have to switch these covers.Very simple to do though, and not an issue.

    Altogether, this is very versatile, with good scan quality and I highly recommend it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome product
    The automatic photo feeding capability of this scanner makes scanning lots of prints very easy.I bought the scanner two days ago and have scanned in 360 4x6 pics with very little problem.Out of the 360 pics I had no jams, and a few pics that did not scan correctly (mostly this meant that the pic was cropped in some way during the scanning process).Over all I am very pleased with the scanning quaility and speed of this scanner.Epson does warn you about scanning valuable originals as apparently there is a chance for the photo to scratched as it goes through the automatic feeder.I did not experience that problem.

    Software is ok.Much better than what comes with the HP Scanjet 4070 and the software was much easier to install.

    Do follow the directions that one of the other ppl posted about scanning in pics as a tiff and then using a program to rotate and convert them to jpeg.I used Picasa (free from Google) and it worked fine.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A good scanner with the unique feeder feature
    Cropping issues:Any time you manually place a photo on the glass of a scanner, your placement is likely to be rotated slightly.My Canon LIDE 20 software addresses this conservatively, cropping none of the photo, sometimes resulting in a thin wedge of white at the edges.(To remove this, you need to crop it in a photo editor, or re-scan with correct alignment.)This may be the correct implementation for a platen-only scanner, but it can be disappointing when scanning in quantity.Accordingly, the Epson software crops all edges slightly, up to 0.1 inch, in "Full Auto Mode".Also, my test scans on the glass were cropped 0.2 inch (from the 4x6 original) on the edge that I had butted against the front edge of the glass. Butting against an edge is usual, to help get the angle right.Butting against the left edge instead, increased crop on that butted edge to 0.2 inch.My Canon scanner does not have this problem. The Epson 2480 scanner would probably not be my choice, except for the feeder.The crop may be a little less on feeder scans, and does not suffer from a bad edge.

    Comparing TIFFs at 600 dpi on screen:I cropped a section out of some scans, and compared them, as well as the originals.The Canon, Epson (glass) and Epson (feeder) scans were all noticeably different.The Epson scans appear square - no noticeable difference depending on orientation of the scan, when then rotated to be the same for display. The scans from the Canon appear to be slightly out of square, but this could be a problem due to the age of the scanner.The Canon scans are softer and brighter, generally having more accurate color on screen, on my test photo.(Auto-levels in PhotoShop Elements 3 made the Epson scans at least as good, on screen.)To me, the Epson (glass) scans were very slightly better than the Epson (feeder) scans, in image quality (colors were the same).In "Full Auto Mode", you don't get to tweak any options that might brighten the images, etc.(It is worth noting that I cannot calibrate my LCD display - your mileage may vary.)

    Lower resolution: Epson scans at 400dpi or Canon at 300dpi are perfectly acceptable on screen, hardly distinguishable from 600dpi.Scans of 4x6 prints will never be any better than the print.If you want an 8x12 of comparable quality, you need to go to the negative/slide, a medium that's meant to be enlarged.The negative/slide scanner is suitable only for occasional use, due to lack of Digital ICE.Get your compressed air ready, to clean those things before scanning - and re-scanning!Dust on the negative is a major issue.The quality of the scans is very good.

    Print comparison:I usually use a web print service, but I did not have time to wait.On my Canon i950, I printed (1) Canon 600 dpi, (2) Epson feeder 400 dpi, (3) glass 600, (4) feeder 600, (5) feeder 600 with partial auto-levels from PSE.[All were on Canon Photo Paper Pro - I had to re-do two I had done on Plus paper, which was substantially inferior in color.] The only print that we judged acceptable [close enough to the original]was (4) Epson feeder at 600dpi.The others all were inferior in cropping, sharpness, and/or color.The Canon scan had brighter colors than the original, and was a little less sharp. The major cropping of the Epson platen scan, exacerbated by the Canon printing software, resulted in prints that looked less sharp than the feeder print, probably due to stretching to 4x6.The 400 dpi feeder scan was slightly less sharp than at 600dpi, but otherwise the same.We expect better print quality, with a professional print service.[All scans for this test, Full Auto].

    Other:"Always use the document table to scan important, valuable, or one-of-a-kind photos....Dust, friction, or a feed jam may cause damage to the photo... if you load it in the feeder."My test print did eventually get scratched.There is no power switch - you will have to plug and unplug it.(The Canon is USB-powered, making this a non-issue.)When buying a scanner, be willing to pay a little more for a decent return policy - I bought mine at Amazon - they're great!

    The Home mode appears useless.In Professional mode, scans require manual cropping, which is relatively easy at scan time.This eliminates the over-cropping problem, at the cost of quite a bit of time.No cropping was needed next to the edge of the glass, indicating a dead space there, though I forgot to check.

    Important issue: 4x6 prints are inserted into the feeder 4-inch side first.This results in portrait orientation scans.Landscape (horizontal) scans need attention, to see them sensibly on the computer.Windows XP will rotate these for you, with the click of your mouse.However, if you scan JPEGs, this is a lossy rotation - every time you save a JPEG, you lose something.The compromise proposed by Chris Breeze is to scan TIFFs, rotate them (which is lossless), and then convert them to JPEGs.

    I use BreezeBrowser Pro, which will perform lossless rotation of JPEGs.This works great for digicam images, where the image dimensions are usually an exact multiple of the 4/8/16-pixel tile size.However, batch scans from the Epson 2480LE (or most other scanners) do not have these perfect dimensions, so lossless rotation cannot work correctly.Here how I'm getting around this problem:

    1. Insert the prints into the feeder face down.

    2. Set the scanner to 400 or 600 dpi, for TIFFs, and scan the images to C:\My Pictures\Scans.

    3. Fire up BB Pro, go to the Scans folder, highlight all the Landscapes (Ctrl-click as needed) and rotate them 90 degrees in the correct direction.(If the Portraits are 180 degrees off, rotate all pics once, and the Portraits again.)

    4. Highlight all the pics.If they are in reverse order, use View - Image Order - Reverse Sort Order.Or, drag & drop as needed, to get the images in the desired order.

    5. Use Tools - Batch Rename, As Displayed. I use yyyy-mm-ddd %n name, e.g. 2005-02-23 001 Neat Place.

    6. Edit the TIFFs, as needed (select an image, then Ctrl-D, to fire up your configured image editor).

    6. Ctrl-A to select all, then Tools - Proofs - Proof Selected, to convert all the images to JPEGs in the Scans\proofs folder (check no boxes).I chose to use 95/100, which resulted in files ranging from 650K to 1.5MB.

    7. Delete all the TIFFs (one click) - I set BB Pro so that mine land in a Deleted folder, so I'll have to haul them away later (a real winner, on occasion).

    8. Put the JPEGs where I want them....

    Bottom line:We decided to keep this scanner.It was a close call, but we have thousands of prints to scan, and there does not seem to be any other affordable option.The Epson 2480LE is definitely at its best for this purpose. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars WHERE'S THE CABLE???!!!
    Ok, perhaps I've been out of it for too long, but since when did they stop including the printer cable with printers?I still don't have the correct cable.I purchased my RX620 in a store and was blown away by the print quality of the store's demo.However the salesman let me purchase it without mentioning I'd need a cable.He should have told me since I had originally enlisted his aid in getting a cable for my old printer and decided on a new printer instead, "cause I'll get the printer AND a cable!"

    Then I went back for a cable.They told me to purchase the wrong one.When I got home and found out it was the wrong cable, I tried to determine what USB cable I needed for this thing.(I didn't know there were more than one type of USB cable.)There is NO printed documentation that comes with this printer that specifies what type of USB cable is needed.Thought Amazon would list it in the accessories section, but wrong again!

    Am I ever going to be able to print from my computer with this?!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolute BEST bang for the buck!!
    Before I start, I just want to emphasize that I have been in the IT industry for about 15 years and consider myself to be pretty knowledgeable about PC and PC peripherals. This DOESNT mean that I'm infallible, just simply that I know what to look for in a device. Now onto the review...

    It was time to replace my tired HP Photosmart 7260, although still working and doing a great job, I may add, I wanted something, well.... different. So, I decided to delve into the AIO(All In One) category. I initally started with an open box HP 2355 from Sears and was initally pleased as punch. Decent print speeds, wonderful photo and text output and an awe-inspiring design. However my happiness was short-lived. Apparently there was a reason it was an "open box" and priced so cheap. It was defective. Continuous banding, horrible color output after sitting a few hours, etc. So, much to my dismay I took it back and decided to stick with my PS 7260 until I could afford a high-end AIO. Well the time came to purchase and I shopped around, read numerous reviews and finally picked up an Epson AIO cx6600. For those of you who havent tried this printer, its MORE than worth the money!!! Excellent speed, nice look and good print quality. All out of a 4 ink tank system! However, I just could not settle with this device(Nothing really wrong with this AIO except that I could not settle for the 4 color pigmanet-based print engine) and decided to return the 6600 in favor of the 6 color, dye-based RX620. I'm glad I did.Heres why:

    1.) Print speeds seem to be on par with the cx6600 (Which has decently high ratings for speed).
    2.) Photo quality is among the best I have EVER seen. This AIO is on par with the high dollar, 8 color dedicated photo printers. With Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper and a high-resolution image(i.e 4-5 MP high-end camera), you almost have to have a microscope to detect ANY dithering or banding. I have printed everything from 4x6 prints up to 8.5x11 and continue to be blown away by the quality. And I have a VERY keen eye for imperfections!!!
    3.) Contrary to some reviews, text DOES appear sharp and crisp. Print speeds arent super-fast, but will suffice for most applications.
    4.) Copy and scan quality are among the best Ive seen from an AIO. This is probably attributed to the excellent print engine and over the top scanner. I copied an older film photo on the photo setting(NOT best photo) and could not believe my eyes. The printer has the ability to restore old photos and I'm here to tell you...IT WORKS!! An adapter is included to scan negatives and slides as well, which I have not had a chance to play with as of yet.
    5.) Setup and operation are a breeze! Even printing sans computer could not be easier. The full-color LCD is very informative and easy to use!
    6.) Bonus features! You can even scan directly to a memory card, or backup to a Jump Drive/CD-RW directly connected to the printer!!
    7.) Its relatively quiet! Much quieter than most of the HP's that I have used.

    Everyone complains about the lack of a fax, but I do NOT see this as a fault! It is designed to be a home-based photo center. You CAN scan to fax with the included software, however and I found it to work as advertised.

    All in all, I have a hard time finding faults in this AIO and I'm REALLY looking. But there are a few irritations(Not really faults)
    1.) The USB cable is attached to the machine from INSIDE the lid. You have to raise the lid to install the cable, which is fed to the back via a path notched out. Kind of crazy, but not a big problem.
    2.) Epson thought it to be a good idea to put a product sticker on the top, which almost covers the entire lid. This includes the shiny black oval/oblong area that gives the RX620 a handsome look. When the sticker is removed, residue is left on the shiny part and is ridiculously difficult to remove. Solvents that are effective in removing the residue, cause swirl marks on the surface. Again an irritation, but does not take away from the operation. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars CD/DVD Printing Makes It Worth The Price Alone
    When I first read about this printer in a computer magazine, I was immediately impressed by its functions and price point. CD/DVD printers cost $100's more and even then, they usually just serve that single function. Later that day, I went out and bought one.

    The R200 not only prints directly onto the discs, but is also a quality photo printer. You can print out crisp images with that function as well as carry out normal day-to-day tasks like homework and other documents. It's great because the printer has an extra USB port on the front of the machine for easy hookup to a laptop. The software for the printer is easy to install and there really was no printer alignment necessary. It did all the work for me.

    The only thing you really need to buy, if you don't already have one, is a USB cable because it doesn't come with one packed in the box. Yeah, I know. I was disappointed in that too, but the features made up for that. Speaking of features, in order to successfully print onto a disc, you must use an Ink-Jet printable disc. Otherwise, you'll have a disc with a pool of ink on it.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not what it claims to be by any stretch
    The good news.... OK it prints on white paper, and if you set it to its highest quality (slowest printing) it will turn out pretty decent photos. And on the off chance that you are able to load the CD/DVD tray into it exactly the way it wants, it will print on CD's relatively well.
    Now for the real review of this printer: Text is abysmal, even on its best setting. I have a Canon i860, which in every way (text and graphics/photos) blows the doors off this Epson. Printing CD's which really is the ONLY actual reason anyone would buy this over ANY Canon, is a chore at best. You must print them one at time (choosing more than 1 copy craps out the tray alignment for the next copy, which brings on the error message) and it takes a REALLY LONG TIME. Don't get me wrong, the quality in "Best Photo" on CD's is pretty great.... but the hassle with the tray never being happy and the S L O W print speed is just not worth it. WAAAAAAAAYY better results are achieved using the Avery Afterburner kit and printing labels with ANY Canon printer. I had an Epson several years ago, and upon buying Canon, will never go back to Epson. The quality difference is measured in light years. But alas Canon has no CD printer in the U.S., only Europe. So if you're contemplating this as your primary printer, and just every once in a while will print to CD's... move on to another brand that is actually capable of printing clean black text. If you just need a printer to print 2 or 3 CD's a week, this will suffice.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Buy This Product! It's Amazing!
    I needed to purchase a color inkjet printer for photo printing. I have been a die hard HP fan for years (my HP LaserJet 4L is still my workhorse for B&W). My photographer recommended Epson for quality and multiple ink cartridges and I also read the online reviews. This printer had 5 star reviews because of quality and ease of installation, so I purchased it.

    The installation was truly a snap (and not intrusive like users complained about HP's installation) and literally took about 2 minutes. The photo quality of the pictures are out of this world. I bought Epson photo paper in bulk at Costco ($20 for 120 sheets) to insure good results. Yes, after printing out about 100 8x10 full color, best quality images, I have to go and buy a Yellow Toner Cartridge, but what can you do? A photo lab here in L.A. wanted to charge me $2 per 4x6 print!

    I have had to play with calibrating my color management with Photoshop to match what's onscreen with what prints out, but that's a Photoshop issue and not an issue with the printer. Just read your Photoshop manual or get a Visual Quickstart Guide for Photoshop.

    This printer is quiet, compacts nicely (when not in use) on my jam packed desktop and installation and the quality of prints is amazing! I cannot recommend this printer enough!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Didn't expect much but WOW!
    I bought this printer and didn't expect much considering the price, $99.99 for a printer that prints on CD's and DVD's and supposedly a good photo printer too? Well, I figured that I could always return it if it didn't seem worth even the small price.

    Boy, was I ever shocked!!! The first task I gave it was to print on a DVD that I burned. I couldn't believe the quality! Wow, was what I said and I didn't even have the printer set on the high quality. To say the least I was impressed. I found that the included software that you use to print on the DVD/CD works fine but is a little confusing but okay once you figure it out. Converting the printer from printing paper to printing on media takes about 10 seconds and is so easy that even the most inexperienced user will master it quickly. All you do is flip down a plastic hinged part and you're in business. You then lay the media on the included tray, slip it in and start printing, and you won't believe the quality.

    I bought this printer to print on CD's and DVD's exclusively as I have another printer for daily paper use. But I can see now I'll use it to print CD's and DVD's and for all my photo printing.

    After printing on a few media, I decided to try the photo print. I put in an 8 X 10 photo paper and printed a photo out. I tried the borderless option which this printer offers. I was again impressed in the quality printing out on photo paper.

    After all of this printing, my cartridges are still plenty full so it doesn't seem too greedy on the ink use. I did increase the print color correction to +1 while printing on a DVD and it's plenty dark enough.

    Printing directly on media is really nice and beats the heck out of printing labels and then sticking them on, hopefully straight. Finding printable DVD's was a little tough but I see they're becoming more common now. You can easily get them here on Amazon and a lot of other places on the net. I don't think it will be long until most all media are printable.

    Once you print on the media, you'll want to keep this printer and never print a paper lable again.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not a great value considering black and white problems!
    Before you buy this printer, beware: if you run out of color ink, but just want to print black and white, too bad! The "black ink only" function doesn't work if there are any empty ink cartridges (the printer has 6 total). Epson says, "To keep the print head clear, the printer uses a small amount of ink from all the cartridges whenever it prints. Even if you set the printer software to print black only, some color ink is still being used."

    So, if you just want to print that text document, best run to the store and spend another $50-$60 for color ink. Que ridiculo!

    Reviewers, please BUY the product and USE it more than once or twice before writing a review. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Installation problems for Epson 4870 USB 2.0 Windows XP
    The scanner works fine, but slowly in USB 1 ports. When connected to the USB 2.0 hub, although the scanner was recognized by Windows XP, there was no response from the scanner, although on and properly connected. Several hours of uninstalling and reinstalling its software and downloading USB patches and updating drivers from did nothing to solve the problem. If the problem isn't cracked in the next day or so, the scanner is going back where it came from.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love This Scanner!
    I scan only 35 mm black-and-white negative film (including C-42). Scanning at 4800 dpi, 16 bit I get beautiful scans with great detail (about 58 MB files). Love the automation of scanning 24 negatives at once. It takes only about 70 minutes. Scan quality better than a pro-photo cd and close to the quality of a drum scan.

    Setup was easy. Build quality is good. I'm quite happy. Would highly recommend.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Huge Stability & Reliability Problems
    I just received my Epson 4870, and have just spent a frustrating 12 hours getting this thing to work reliably.

    My observations so far:

    1) The hardward and drivers are very unreliable. Half the time, neither the Epson nor the Silverfast are able to communicate with the scanner. Turning the scanner off and on and rebooting the computer sometimes helps, but I sometimes I have to reboot multiple times in order to get it to work. I am using the USB cable that came with the scanner.

    2) After upgrading to Silvertfast to 6.0.2 to get ICE support, the software simply stopped working, freezing Photoshop.

    3) When I am lucky enough to get the scanner to work, the Epson software often quits halfway through the scanning process, citing an inability to communicate with the scanner. This is very frustrating, as I am scanning 120 film, which takes a good 20-30 minutes per slide (with ICE enabled).

    4) The scanner is S-L-O-W. If you are scanning medium format film, be prepared to spend 30 minutes or more on each scan (not counting retries due to the unreliable nature of the scanner).

    5) There is no way the resolution on this thing is 4800 DPI. Although I haven't been scientific about it, my guess is the real resolution is closer to 2700 DPI.

    6) The scanner does not come with a carrier that supports 120 film longer than 12 cm. Although I knew going in, I would have liked to have a carrier that accepts longer film strips, because I also shoot using a 6x17 panoramic.

    7) Epson technical support is 9-6 Monday through Friday only. I work during the week, so my chances of getting any support from Epson are close to zero, unless I decide to take a day off work.

    I am very unhappy with this purchase, and will be looking into returning my scanner back to Amazon, probably replacing it with a Canon 9900.
