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

Amazon.com Product Description

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.

What's in the Box
PictureMate Personal Photo Lab, power cord, starter PictureMate photo cartridge, 20 sheets of PictureMate Photo Paper, CD-ROM, user manuals; Epson Software Film Factory 3.05 (PC and Macintosh compatible, P.I.M. and Exif Print-enabled); USB cable not included

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 support.epson.com 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

Amazon.com Product Description

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 annoyances...like 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 film...so 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 Redriverpaper.com). 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 fixyourownprinter.com 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!

Sincerely,

- Mark Whitney -
Hollywood, CA

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 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.

CONS:
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

5-0 out of 5 stars A pure pleasure to use
I spent months evaluating printers before picking the r300. I am very satisfied with my choice.

I'll start out with the negatives. I have 4 criticisms about the printer:
1. The ink warning light comes on long before you are out of ink.
2. The default print settings appear to be designed around (dark) Adobe Gamma PC video
3. It is not designed to make borderless prints on 3rd party (Kodak) photo paper
4. While the CD printing produces gorgeous images, the ink will smear if it gets wet.

Each of these issues is addressed very easily:
1. Don't change the ink cartridges until you really run out.
2. Use the advanced options to tweak the gamma, brightness and contrast and save the settings. Pros will make their own curves anyway.
3. Epson paper is better than anything else, but if you have to use other paper, you can "fake" it to get borderless prints with a custom paper setting.
4. Don't get the CD's wet. Excepting my own tests, I've never had the slightest smear on a CD that I printed from the Epson. Odds are that it'll never get wet, so don't worry.

I should add that when I print on quality Epson and Kodak photo paper, the ink sets very well, so that it won't smear EVEN if it gets wet. I swear, my friend dropped one of my photo-prints in my fishtank and it looks just as good today as it did before it got wet.

I've left prints in the sun in the back of my car. The r300 ink hasn't faded (on Kodak and Epson photo paper). The prints that I had from my old Epson and HP printers are very faded. This ink is durable!

I've discovered that I can even get superior iron ons from crummy inkjet iron on paper when I use this printer. It's more than just the resolution. Where other inks tend to vaporize under the iron, producing fuzzy edges, the r300 images remain sharp.

I've tested the output on this thing every way from Sunday and I haven't found the flaw yet.

I tried the smart memory slots and I hooked up a USB zip drive and yes, it all works although I'll probably never use those features for more than contact sheets. The uncorrected prints were exceptionally good.

Basically, what I'm saying is that the printer is vastly superior to any other inkjet that I've used in my home or at work -- and I do graphic design for a living. I find it hard to believe that anyone who tries an r300 won't fall in love with it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Ink Sucking Box on my Desk
Prints great and is quiet. Sucks ink like a hungry baby on a bottle.

20 8"x10" prints = $100+ in ink. Epson would give this printer away for free, but they're smart enough to know that buyers would suspect a catch. I know - charge the buyer for the printer AND continually drain there wallets in ink expenses.

Epson doesn't make money on printers- they make money on repeat sales of ink. To make more money on ink they make a printer that blows through it. A WIN-WIN for Epson! Hoo-ray Epson!

Oh....but like I said, it does print nice...but should't it anyway?

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Photo Printing
I am VP of Technology for a large professional photo company (not Epson) and I highly recommend this printer for home digital photo reproduction. With Epson ink and Premium Glossy Photo Paper the results are stunning.

With each ink cartridge replacable separately you no longer need to replace a $25 cartridge just because one color ran out. Individual color cartridges are about $12, although black costs more. Although not cheap, the quality of the Epson supplies are worth it. Off-brand inks and papers do not last anyway.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Photo Printer
I used a Lexmark printer until it finally died and replaced it with a the epson 6 ink tank printer which I found to have much better print quality and ink use has been great. I have printed over 200 4x6 borderless prints and less than half the ink in the color carts is gone. I also use the best settings for printing. highly recommend this printer for amature and professional photographers. the prints are photo lab quality for a fraction of the cost. It seems to work great for scrapbooking as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars great image quality
Don't know what Gideond is talking about in his/her review. Ink lasts a long time and since it is individual carts, it is much more economical than HPs 3-colors in one cart. Pictures are phenominally vivid, especially if you use Epson premium glossy paper and at $15 per 100 sheets of 4x6, it will not bankrupt anyone. IMHO, print quality is better than photo lab and I have compared results. Overall, a steal at $170 with six carts included. Even if you only keep it a few years, it will still prove to be a bargain. A pox on all of the negative comments. ... Read more

Based on the engines of the popular Epson Stylus Photo R300 printer and the Epson Perfection 2400 scanner, the Stylus Photo RX500 adds standalone copying (no PC required) and saves valuable desk space compared to separate components. It is both versatile and reliable, enabling you to scan photos, text, or negatives; to make copies; and to print anything from borderless 4-by-6-inch photos to business envelopes.

The flatbed scanner offers 2,400 dpi optical (9,600 dpi interpolated) resolution and 48-bit color to bring your scanned images rich detail and crisply defined color separation. Archive your family photos, save your favorite articles on your hard drive, or assemble a slide show. You can also save your scans directly to a compatible memory card, even without a PC.

Instant copies can be created in four different resolutions--top speed for black copies is 10 copies per minute. When printing from your system, the RX500 produces black documents in draft mode up to 17 ppm, 16 ppm for color. Take your time and seek perfection with the optimized 5,760 x 1,440 dpi mode, for beautifully sharp photos. In a faster mode, borderless 4-by-6-inch prints appear in as little as 37 seconds. Insert your digital camera'scompatible memory card and print your evening's shots while bypassing your system. Just use the photo proof sheet mode to select only images you need.

Consumable costs are low, thanks to six separate high-yield ink tanks--you can expect up to 630 pages from the black cartridge and 430 pages from the color cartridges, based on 5% page coverage. The modern silver and black casing adds a sleek touch to your office space, while the included USB cable couldn't be more convenient. Epson provides a one-year warranty covering parts and service; Epson Exchange service is included.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not Ink Thrify, but Superb Photos
I wanted the best affordable multifunction photo printer I could buy, and I believe that I got it. Using epson borderless photo paper most people can not tell the photos were printed at home, or even from a digital camera, even with 5x7's, (I have not been printing 8x10's). USE EPSON PHOTO PAPER, DO NOT USE KODAK! The photo's I have been printing were taken with a Pentax Optio330, 3.34 megapixel. I can only imagine how good they would be with a better camera.

The photocopy functions work very well, just make sure you select the right setting, (photo, text, ect.). You can also scan negitives and slides. They come out great. It can scan at a resolution higher that my computer can handle, and I have a fairly good computer. Don't worry, you set the resolution and can get a very good scan with most computers.

It does go through a lot of ink, and the ink is on the expensive side. I have kept my old printer for text and everyday use. All in all, I love this printer!

*The photos on the much more expensive Kodak Premium Picture Paper looked like digital prints. It did not even look like I used the same printer. Plus the paper is not as glossy, much thinner, does not print borderless, and everybodys skin looked rather blue. Use Epson premium photo paper, it is much better, at least with this printer. Also Epson paper has the same look and feel as quality glossy prints from a photo lab.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great color, Great scanner, really just great.
I researched heavily. I needed a GOOD scanner that would also do film scanning. I have a large collection of negatives - 35mm and even super8 movie film. I have been most impressed with the quality of the scans, everything from old photos to negatives to slides comes out very well. This unit is advertised at an OPTICAL resolution of 2400x4800, and I believe it. I am able to scan a single frame of super8 movie film (which is about 1/4" square, if that) at 2400dpi and see film grain. Scanning higher res reaches the limits of the film before the scanner.

The printer: Awesome. That's all I have to say. The first test print on 4x6 epson photo paper blew me away. It looks BETTER than any photolab I have ever seen. This using only a 2.1MP Canon S330 digital camera as source. Simply amazing. Pretty quick too, about 30-45 seconds for a 4x6 in photo mode. Speed when printing "Regular" documents is VERY impressive. Draft is downright scary fast.

Software: Here's where Epson fell down for me. The CD that came with the printer would not install all the applications correctly. It would fail saying "unable to find file setup.exe" After beginning the install. I uninstalled everything and began anew, to no avail. Wound up digging into the CD with explorer and running all the installs by hand, except the scanning software which still gave the message.

Downloaded an older version from Epsons site, and it works adaquately. However, I cannot scan in "simple" or "home" mode, it fails after doing the preview scan with a memory error. Professional mode (manual control) works fine, and that's all I personally care about. I am awaiting a newer version of everything from epson.

The photo management/printing/project software (arcsoft photoimpression) is quite good. I've evaluated a lot of photo management/printing packages, and this one is a really easy to use and reasonably powerful package. I especially like the easy to use cropping to format tools (a digital format image almost never fits a 4x6, 5x7, 8x10 exactly), easy printing, and templates/projects. Free trial version can be had at arcsoft website for the curious.

Copying features are good, I haven't used it as a copier much, but it works well. Copying photos works very well, even enlarging or changing them. I prefer to scan/photoshop/print on most things, but for a quick copy it works very well.

Bonus for me is the USB card reader built in. You can use it independant of the printer as a regular card reader (Drive E: in my case). Nice thing is it's usb2.0, and VERY fast compared to my old one (You need USB 2.0 on your PC to get the most from this printer. Get a USB 2.0 card, they are about $10 or less)

All in all, 5+ start, minus a star for the failed software install (That would definitely ruin a lot of people's day).

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for photos, decent for text.
I bought this printer after doing a thoroug search on the net. I rate is as quite good, but there are things that could be improved.

Software installed great; it was fast, and not too big.

Copying photos as a stand alone is excellent, but I noticed some greenish overcast. But I intent to scan everything into photoshop first, so I can live with that.

OCR software is quite effective and user friendly. I already like this one.

Cartridges are quite expensive, and it seems to be going through them rather quickly, but still acceptable.

The scanner is perfect. It has more resoulution than I can use.

The software works quite good, and it's user friendly, but there could be some more explanation in the manunal - for example I could not turn on the "dust and scratches option" in the scanner software, but I have to try higher resolution and see if the function becomes enabled.

The only major drawback I noticed was the text quality - I compared it to the printout from my HP cp 1700 at work, and Epson does not even come close.... mind you, the HP is a pricey unit able to print 13X17 pages. Having said that, the print quality is decent enough, but I feel a bit dissappointed.

I am using a USB 2.0, but the time it takes to start printing is not too impressive (on the other hand, some files are huge)

the unit is compact, appears to be well made and mechanically works very well.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love it so far! I couldn't wait for the newer model.
The newer model of this item I couldn't find anywhere or was priced too high. I was also going to go for the R800 but that was pricey or out of stock. I couldn't wait any longer to get a color printer to compliment my high res camera so I figured I get this one for now since it was pretty cheap. Well I love it so far! Pictures are better than photo quality with the photo and I am totally satified so far. I love it and it doesn't take up alot of space with the built in scanner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Super All-In-One!
This Epson all-in-one is great! It replaces an older scanner and separate printer. I do "low budget" digital photography and digital art. This machine will do my artwork as well as text documents. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible value--no problem at all
First of all, if you want a general printer that you can use to print documents and spreadsheets, don't get this printer. This is a PHOTO printer (hint from its name) it's designed to print PHOTOS. So don't be surprised if it is an ink hog (which it is). It's like buying a muscle car or a SUV and complain about it's gas mileage. Another thing to keep in mind is that even though you can't change the individual colors in the 5 colors (not 3 colors!) cartridge, it is very unlikely to run out of ink in one color while there is plenty of other colors' ink, unless you keep on printing similar color photos (like you only print sunset or ocean photos). If you print all kind of photos, it won't be a problem. Ink cartridges are about average priced, there are other cheap ones but I have not tried those yet. I have been using this printer for a few months already, yet I have not seen any clogging problem as mentioned by others and now Epson has released a new driver and this printer is supposed to be able to print 5760x720 dpi. The prints are absolutely amazing (especially for a printer at this price), the 6 color cartridge really made the difference. I am currently taking a photography class, and have to make prints all the time, even my instructor was surprised by how good the quality of the prints are from a printer in this price range. I have tried a bunch of photo papers, from the cheap CompUSA to Kodak paper, but Epson's own photo paper seems to work best with this printer. I haven't noticed the noise problem as well, it is just as noisy as other printers that I have used before. But it is kind of slow, I only have USB 1.1, but I think even with 2.0, the speed won't improve much.

UPDATE: I had purposely left it untouched for more than a month (all I did was kept the cover up), and just printed a few photos, there was absolutly no clogging whatsever, the prints look as good as ever.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible Printer...Don't go this route...
I agree with the folks who discuss clogged print heads. This is a miserable printer and when I approached Epson about it...they were quite flippant and not too helpful. Told me how wonderful it was...not very professional customer service. Yes...It did not cost much...so I am only out all those ink cartridges where I had to do the "clean head" function about 15 times. The final straw was running the "clean head" function 17 times, and still not getting them cleaned. Do I send it back? Nope...I don't want another one and they would not upgrade. It goes in the trash can. I would recommend the Canon i960. Amazon carries it too. I really have a bad taste in my mouth for Epson at this point.

1-0 out of 5 stars Clogged Print heads
Replacing this printer. The print heads clog all the time if you do not shut the printer off each time after using. Cannot leave on a network. Ink is expesnive because when you run out of one color the whole cartridge has to be replaced. Reading the reviews here confirmed what i had feared that there was a design flaw here and that i was wasting my money on ink cartridges. It is cheaper to just buy a new printer than to keep on buying cartridges for this lemon.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst Printer Ever Owned
I was looking to upgrade from an old HP 672. I had heard some good things about Epson printers and the research I did seemed to indicate that this would be a good buy. I guess sometimes no matter how much you do your research you can still get a lemon.

I have had nothing but issues with this printer from day one. For one it seems to have to go through some kind of obscure primitive ritual when you hit the print button. It does this crazy back an forth dance for about 15 secs before finally sucumbing to your will and print what you requested. The biggest issue I have with this printer is that if it sits without printing for more than a day the inkjets clog and you have to sit through at least two head cleaning sessions to get the thing to print clearly. Unless of course you don't mind blank lines through your text.

2-0 out of 5 stars Got discontinued because it was too cheap.
I am writing this to reassure you that the other writers are correct when they say Epson's inks is costly by running out fast. The printer manufacture base price of $80 is cheap relative to the high quality of the prints you get. So you most wonder where Epson is going to pull in their profit and that is the ink cartridges.

Quality:
Epson's print quality has always been very good compared to the price. Its ink price/quality is a lot better then HP's printers. HP has more fancy built in features. I printed photo and graphic for my portfolio and they look great, no complaint here. I previous owned an HP720 and an Epson Photo 1200(half the dpi), which is an older model that takes self-refill. Epson newer models (820) are chipped and won't print with self-refill, the cheapest way to print.

Performance:
With newer photo printer from Canon i960 (best) and Epson 300m (OK) with individual ink cartridges, it pushed the price of group cartridge printer down. The 820 is very boring printer, it just print. The design looks pain; there is only a few buttons. The Epson's driver is fairly good, but the ink indicator is just an average (base on how many page you printed), since the gauge level of all the colors are the same. Yes, the inks will clog if you don't use it consistently. Cleaning an Epson printer head is a nightmare, it takes a couple of round to take the streak out.

This product is a solid two stars and is discontinued. I sold mine to my roommate and got the Canon i960. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars The Best Photos I Have Ever Seen. . . But. . .
Okay, here is how it is: This is the best photo printer this side of your local photo lab, but it doesn't come without some disadvantages. This printer does not use the Epson DuraBrite ink, which the Epson C82 does. It does use a five ink system, but it is housed in a single cartridge. That is pretty lousy because the ink tank is rather small. You must understand though, if you have a decent digital camera, you will not know the difference between this and a professional development.

The digital film readers that are included in the unit are pretty cool as they are pretty expensive when they are not in the Epson box. The little read out screen for picture selecting is a bit difficult to get used to, as it is definitely no LCD screen. But, for the price, who would expect a monitor. If running without a computer is a must, then the selection screen is sufficient. If at all possible, use your computer and import that way, it is much easier. There is also a reel on the back for 4x6 paper rolls.

Overall, the printer is rather affordable for the output. The pictures are top shelf and text is almost laser quality. It is well worth the money and puts out better pictures than any machine I have ever encountered. This replaces the Epson C82 as my favorite photo printer on the market.

5-0 out of 5 stars Solid printer with great photo quality
With the amount of photo quality this printer puts out, you would expect it to use a lot of ink. Compared to HP, ink is a real bargain.

I first got this printer when my cheap HP broke down after having it for 8 months. I had heard of the photo quality of epson, so I decided to buy one. I was impressed to say the least. It not only printed pictures well, but on glossy paper, I couldn't tell the difference between regular developed pictures from wal-mart and my epson printer.

It's extreemly reliable too. I know this because, sometimes we abuse it by putting in too much paper or accidently printing with the front flap closed. This has caused 2 major paper jams, which, if it were my old HP I would have had to buy a new one. With this epson, however, after removing the paper, it will print as if nothing ever happened. All I have to do is restart the print job.

For $99 I would recommend this printer to anyone. Photo quality is on par with a printer that would cost 3 times as much. Ink is about $30 for a black and color cartridge together. Compared to other brands, it is solid as a rock; at least for now.

2-0 out of 5 stars epson smepsun
This is the second epson I have owed. One thing I can tell you about this brand is they are LOUD, put on some headphones when you are printing things out, oh and the desk better be secure because they rock back and forth, I though mine was going to walk off the table! The print, its ok but also expect the paper to jam a lot on thicker card stock. Oh and make sure you order some head cleaner from www.maxpatch.com. The heads constantly get dirty and they sell a fluid that will clean them. with HP or Lexmark every time you buy a new cartridge you get a new head, not so with epson. When I am making greating cards, mine likes to leave nice black track marks. I have cleaned the rollers and it still does it, guess its a gift from epson. If you want a good printer buy HP or Lexmark, yes you pay more for ink, but the photo quality prints are just as good and they are super quite. My printer is in my bedroom and when I print in the morning the noise is enough to wake up my girlfriend. stay away from epson

1-0 out of 5 stars Faulty print heads make this printer a money-pit!
This printer is a joke! Sure, it prints good pictures - but the print head gets clogged so often that most of the ink in your ink cartridges is drained before you can do much! If you let this printer sit for a week, you will need to run the head cleaning utility - which drains a visible amount of ink on the ink monitor . Subsequently, you run out oif ink in less than two months without doing much printing at all! It's ridiculous!

I bought ink cartridges three weeks ago, have printed nothing but a few resumes (no color) and now they are both halfway drained. Tell me, is this reasonable?

I think not.

1-0 out of 5 stars 825 Very Poor
Worked great for 30 days then it became impossible to get consistent color or print quality. It has gotten so bad that often I can not even get text quality. A complete waste of money. I am going to toss it and get something decent. I have spent more in ink trying to get it to work than the cost of the printer. A real lemon. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Double-edged sword
The Epson 785 has amazed and angered me all at once. The photo-quality prints are stunning, however, those little 'track marks' that other reviewers have told about are present on my photos as well. The photo paper brand has alot to do with it, tho. HP paper shows the worst marks (9mil), Epson and Kodak paper (8mil) isn't too bad, but under good light, I can still see faint track marks. They are made by the small metal 'cogs' that guide the pic once it leaves the print head. I can't figure out why epson used this type of mechanism, clearly if the ink is still wet, these cogs will leave marks. I'll have to return this printer- I can't display or sell my photos w/ this type of flaw!!
I DO like the software package, however. Once you get used to the nuances of it (2-3 pics) its flexible enough for most anyone.

1-0 out of 5 stars terrible printer
This is the second epson printer I have owned. Both printers have the same problem. The extremely annoying problem is printer head clog if you don't use it in 7 days. Then you need to clean it. Each clean cycle will use about 1/10th of ink. I usually can print seven 7x10 photos per set of cartrige. Rest of the ink is used for printer head cleaning. It is also very slow for photo printing. I don't know if all of the inkjet printers have the same problem!

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible Printer
This is a terrible printer. I've never seen any piece of equipment that takes so long to get going - anytime you do ANYTHING (even just changing the cartridge), it rolls the cartridges back and forth multiple times, rolls the paper bar, etc. etc. until you finally turn it off and try again. It takes a good 5 minutes for the stupid cartridges to center and stop rolling so you can change them. Plus, it goes through a color cartridge before you've even printed what would be a roll of film. To top if off - the quality is poor - the colors are NEVER right. Look elsewhere for a better printer

1-0 out of 5 stars Epson Stylus Photo 785EPX
Absolutely the worst printer I've ever owned.

4-0 out of 5 stars 785 work horse
Being a professional photographer, I went entirely digital about 18 months ago. My first investment was a Epson 1280. I loved it but needed a 2nd printer to print different items, most notably, proof prints and preview sheets for my customers. I bought my first 785EX. Being honest, at times I have problems with head clogs, but my 1280 clogs once in a while too. It is the nature of the beast. I now have 3- 785's. The last two I purchased from a office supply outlet on clearance for $45.00 each. Granted they clog once in a while, but if you can live with that shortcoming they are a great printer. The color matching is great, and the prints are fantastic. The key is using good paper. Epson paper is great, but a bit pricey if you go through a lot of paper. I have also had great luck with some red river papers. Draw backs of this model are few but the color ink cartidge is one of them. I get about 20 8 x 10 enlargements from a color cartridge. Have been buying non-Epson ink from a on line ink supplier with good results. Overall, maybe I have just been lucky, but I swear by Epson printers and the 785, for the money will print 8 x 10 prints as good as my Epson 1280. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty high capacity and somewhat long-lasting
I've used this in my CX6400 printer for about the past three weeks now. I've copied numerous papers and printed many internet pages. So far, it's about 1/3 of the way through. If there is something like it doesn't use the last 10% of its cartridge ink, I'll keep you posted. Otherwise, if you got a printer that goes with this cartrige, you best buy it here because it has it for $5 cheaper than any other site aight. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars ...ok?
Okay, I don't get it. ALL of these FIFTEEN reviews were written on either October 29 or 30th. What are these people talking about it having a $1,000,000 price tag?? It costs $13.49!!! The only reason it's sold at this price is because it's the same size as the other color ones at the same price. The larger black ink cartridge for the CX6400 is almost twice as big, that's why it costs more. Gosh, people these days.

But apart from that, I guess the cartridge is okay, I mean, what can you say about an ink cartridge. I had the printer to this cartridge -- BAD printer, the R300. Never worked. But I guess the ink was aight.

5-0 out of 5 stars I could have bought this one
If only this item qualified for SuperSaver shipping I would have bought it. Too bad, :( now I have to shop around for a better deal.

To the people who haven't figured it out why its so appropriately priced. This cartrigde has the special ability to print all the secret service document. I think they forgot to mention that you need security clearance to add this item to your shopping cart. Don't worry if they don't catch you there they will catch you at the check out.

5-0 out of 5 stars This item is great!
This item, although pricey, is worth much more than it costs. They're actually selling the machine that makes the cartridges, complete with materials. You can earn your money back and more by selling the ink cartridges =)

5-0 out of 5 stars good business oppurtunity.
I could probably start my own profitable business, if I start doing refills of these at half the prices....
Where are my angel investors....
---- ok, this review was written when the price of this was a million dollar, price msitake on behalf of amazon.

This is a great product though, I've used it for couple of time include one time as a gift. The quality of print out seems much better now. I think it's because of better quality of ink and it seems like it doesn't dry that often.

Also, graphics which black heavy usage appears more uniform without shades of gray. So I guess, even if its using more ink, the quality is more uniform and better

5-0 out of 5 stars Price is Right
I am getting 20 at least with my co-workers and friends. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Printer!
I bought this printer because the last Epson I had was great too, and still is, it is just on another computer. This Printer goes far beyond my greatest expectations. This printer can actually print ON your CD's!!! It also does a wonderful job as a photo printer. Easy to use, quiet while printing, fairly fast prints too. I highly recommend this computer for novice photographers. The one thing you must do though for sure is, Read your Manual!! It will help you get the most from this wonderful printer.

5-0 out of 5 stars EPSON COMES THROUGH LIKE A CHAMP
I do digital photography, web and graphic designs and make CDs. There is no need to spend thousands of dollars on a CD printer when you can get this printer for less...This printed a 5x7 at a decent speed and with 100% photo lab quality on the supplied Epson Premium glossy paper. I have owned Canon and Lexmark printers and bought an Epson 875DC and loved the 875 best of all. Then I bought this printer and just flipped over the quality of this printer at a reasonable price. I have never bought a high end printer because i have never had a need to because of the quality that EPSON offers in all its models. If i ever break down and buy a high end printer it will definitely be an EPSON. I will be amazed if the output could get any better.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Quality
I have had this printer for about 6 months now and have been very happy with it. I used it while on a job search and printed out at least 100 resumes and cover letters, all with excellent quality.

Photographs look fantastic on Epson's glossy paper (only slightly less fantastic on other brands). I honestly think the pictures I print look better than the same pictures from the photo shop.

CDs too look excellent. I haven't been able to get the labels *perfectly* centered, but they are pretty close.

Minus one star for speed. While the quality is great, it takes a very long time to print a photo or a CD.

2-0 out of 5 stars not impressed
I bought this printer and used it until I had to change the print cartidge. the ink holders are very flimsy and the clip broke without any undue pressure. needless to say it was not worth fixing. The picture were average but for the money were okay. replaced it with a epson r3oo and so far this one is much better made and the prints are great. price was reasonable too.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Bad Printer
Throughout the first year or so of owning this printer, we experienced occasional problems with vertical banding of black and color ink. We thought it was probably because of the fact that we didn't use the printer a whole lot. The problem could be (annoying) fixed through cleaning the print head 1-3 times, and it would print fine. This was acceptable because we never had to rely on the job finishing quickly, and we hardly ever had large or multiple jobs.

Well, after the first year or so, we started wanting to use the printer more frequently and that's when we realized that something was wrong. It turned out that even with semi-frequent use, we always had to clean the head multiple times (it got to the point that we had to clean the head around 6-7 times before getting a good print). This even occured with brand new ink cartridges. Sometimes, we had to clean the head between consecutive print jobs, and sometimes we had to break up multiple page jobs to clean the head in between. I am sure that had we fully put this printer to use early on, we could have caught this problem and had the printer, or at least print head, replaced.

When it does print, it does a pretty decent job (although there are better printers out now), but we couldn't take it anymore and bought a new printer. We have tried everything that Epson's support page recommends and nothing prevents this problem. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best there is
I have several photo printers. Epson 1200 w/ photo grey inks (for b&w work), 1270 for color, HP photo printer, then I got this. Brilliant gamut, waterproof inks. The only thing I wish it had was cheaper inks. Everyone I print for loves the prints.

5-0 out of 5 stars What Darkroom?
What an awesome machine. I have had my 7600 now for a few weeks and continue to be amazed by the print quality. Not one bad print! Awesome color, no banding. This machine has all the bells and whistles. Do yourself a favor and buy this printer! ... Read more
