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

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.

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 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

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 Viaarena.com 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.

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

Amazon.com Product Description

If you love to play with your digital camera but also need a serious printer that can get your office reports looking great, consider this Epson all-in-one. 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.

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

Additionally, the L500V can capture up to 30-second video clips (with sound) at 30 frames per second and at three resolution settings: 640 x 480, 320 x 240, and 160 x 120 pixels.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best inkjets!
Epson C84 comes with a high capacity (900 pages @ 5% coverage, but about 500 pages in real life) black ink and 3 color ink tanks but no printer cable. The size is compact, it looks cool, has good build quality and installation was quick.

The print quality for text is very good for an inkjet (slightly better than Canon i320) and speed is pretty fast 5-6 pages per min (faster than i320). Both the photos printed on the supplied paper sample were annoying skewed (even after we made sure paper was put in properly). The quality didn't look impressive for photos.

Printer and cartridges have smart chips in them (as do new hp's). This will ensure that you can't put in generic ink but pay Epson each time ink runs out. Also there are reports that the printer declares ink over well before it really is. To make things worse Epson seems to use different cartridge models for almost every printer it makes (Canon & hp use same cartidges in many printers).

One good thing about C84 is that its very silent, even while printing. I guess this is about as silent as you will get with printers. Also the text prints look better than on hp, significantly clearer & blacker.

In short, if you want a text only printer get a Samsung (ML-1710) or Minolta (PagePro 1250W) laser printer for similar price. For good photo printers look at the Canon line up or even better get prints at local stores. Epson C84 is recommended for medium text printing & occasional photo printing.

1-0 out of 5 stars Ink problems make this printer very expensive
The quality of the print is not a problem; it's good. But it's not good enough to neutralize the expense and frustration caused by the requirement to replace ALL of the ink cartridges every time one runs out.

When the cyan ink ran out, I tried to print in black only. It would not.

I replaced the cyan ink, and it still would not print. It indicated it needed black. Back to the store, and I bought a whole set this time. After replacing black, it called for the other two. Finally, after replacing all, it printed again--in black only or in color. The ink was Epson ink. Epson Help just figured they all ran out together. Even the first time, I knew they wouldn't all run out, by coincidence, at exactly the same time.

This has happened twice more now, and I am replacing the printer. It will be cheaper. I will not want to risk another Epson product, although I liked them a lot years ago.

1-0 out of 5 stars Printed great at first - then died
I bought my Epson printer with my new PC. It was loud and jerky, but the print quality was good. The factory ink cartidges have almost nothing in them, so you have to replace them pretty quickly. When I installed all new cartidges my printer quit printing in black. I contacted Epson and they indicated I might have to buy new cartidges again. I searched on the web and found there are thousands of people who experience the exact same problem I have and Epson knows all about it, but they won't fix it. My Epson printer, new as it is, is now sitting in the trash. I put my old HP 722C back on my desk and have had no problem with it ever. I will never buy another Epson product again. And from what I've read of other user's reviews they feel the same way. Epson is junk.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Photo Printer without the bells and whistles
I am very impressed by the photo quality this printer turns out, even with generic ink. My 4 megapixel camera's pictures come out BEAUTIFULLY on photo paper from this printer. It doesn't have the fancy features that more expensive photo printers have (card reader, preview monitor, etc.) but it gets the job done. I went an entire semester of college (read: many many many papers) on the double capacity black cartridge it came with. It's also very quiet. I highly reccommend this printer, and don't be afraid to put generic ink in- it's cheaper and just as good.

2-0 out of 5 stars Worked fine at first, then declined
The printer worked fine at first, printing beautifully. Set up was a breeze. I've had the printer for several months now, however, and I've noticed the print quality slowly decline.

I keep regular maintanence on the inkheads, cleaning and aligning them as necessary. I only use Epson ink, I've never refilled or damaged the ink cartridges in any way. I am unsatisfied with this product, and will not purchase another Epson. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Epson CX5400 Rocks!
The CX5400 currently sells for $..., maybe less with rebates and other incentives. is it worth it? YUP!!

This badboy copies,prints and scans just like the older CX5200 model that was discontinued by Epson but it also does borderless printing and its quiet!!!
See http://www.epson.com/ for full specs.

SETUP - a breeze, open up the box, remove all that funky tape, plug it in, insert the 4 cartridges, flip that scanner lock switch, install the software, plug in the usb port. Took me 5 minutes, no problems at all.

NOISE - Only noise this unit makes is when its first turned on, it initalizes and does all kinds of stuff, takes 2 mins, when its idle, its whisper quiet. When it prints, there is only the humm of paper being printed, not loud at all, the CX5200 made a horrible sound when it printed, they fixed it in this unit.

SPEED - print speed is very fast, b&w or color - no waiting for it to catch up. i printed 20 pages that came out before my coffee was even cold. Best photo printing is the slowest mode as expected, so be patient.

OUTPUT - paper comes out dry, text is rich and clean, looks like a laser printer. color is very sharp and crisp, no problems here. this unit does 8 1/2x11 borderless printing too, amazing. 5700x1440 dpi is very nice and durabrite ink comes out dry.

SCANNING - it scans 1200x2400 dpi @ 48bit which in english means your color or b&w scans will come out exactly as the original, i scanned a magazine page and my keys, no blurs or distortion at all, job well done epson.

COPYING - you dont need the pc to do copying, it does color and b&w copying just like a real copier would, enlargments/reductions/lighten or darken the image and zoom and # of copies, its all there. the scanning are is too small to handle legal size paper, but i dont think any of the multifunction printers can.

CONCLUSION - i give it a 5 stars, the CX5200 had paper loading problems-fixed here, it also had slow photo printing-fixed here. This unit also displays the ink levels in printer config or control panel and ink is a **lot** cheaper and lasts longer than any of the HP mfc's.

DISLIKES - only things for epson to work on, makes the power cord removeable to the unit so its easier to feed under a desk, put the usb port in back of the unit so the cable doesn't get bent, make the control panel on the printer a little bigger, and maybe add a sleep mode so it will use less electricity when idle for 10 mins or more.

There are tons of options to set in printer config, too many to explain here. Epson came out with this CX5400 model and the CX6400 model, personally, the CX6400 looked huge to me, 23" wide and wouldn't fit on my desk.

Still waiting for a review from zdnet or pcworld, wonder whats taking them so long ?

CX5200 and CX5400 uses the same ink carts...epson says black will last 1000 pages, and color around 300 pages give or take a few. I can tell you from experience, the HP2210 lasted 35 color pages and about 70 black.

Good job Epson... HP should be ashamed for charging twice the price for the same features and way overcharging for ink cartridges.

I dont work for Epson, Amazon or HP, so you know this review is honest!!

5-0 out of 5 stars I BOUGHT FIVE!
Many people turn to me to ask what printer/scanner I recommend. Based on personal experience and on three months of feedback from others, my recommendation at the time of writing this review is the Epson Stylus CX54000. There are a few reasons:

The quality and longevity of Epson products has kept me a loyal fan of Epson in the arena of scanning and printing for seven years. This printer/scanner features Epson's efficient and innovative use of multiple individual ink cartridges. If you print a ton of yellow, you no longer have to throw out the entire cartridge even though the other colors are half full. The print quality is as good as any of the other Epson printers that are equivalent in cost (without the added freebie scanner). The scanner is as good as the other Epson scanners that are of similar cost (without the added freebie printer). No matter how you look at this unit, you save. It has the same footprint (space it takes on the desk) as a printer or scanner, but you get both. And it is only a little bit more expensive than either alone.

Therefore, based on these features and my seven-year use of Epson printers and scanners, I recommended five of these units to friends who have come to me asking what to buy. All of them ended up buying the units. I do have to say that I have noticed the same thing as the other reviewers, that the photo prints come out a little browner than the screen. That is my only complaint. Besides that, I am even happier with the performance of this unit than I expected to be. If you are in the market for a printer/scanner, as of March 2004, I strongly recommend buying this unit over all others available on this market.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great printer for a Mac
Those of us with Macs don't have a lot of options when it comes to printers. HPs don't work well, and the good Canon ones aren't necessarily compatible. So I was glad to see that the CX5400 was compatible with my iBook OS 9.2. And I'm happy to report that it's been perfect so far. Installation was easy, with only two small glitches. After putting in the ink cartridges, there was an error message, so I had to turn the machine off and turn it back on and the error message went away. And the poster/manual said if you have a Mac, to plug in the USB first, but there's a huge sticker on the printer's USB port that said don't plug in the USB first, so I didn't.

Print quality is excellent. When I print color documents, the colors are even truer than the ones I print on the expensive fiery machine at the office. (Haven't tried photo printing yet, as I'd rather do that online or at Costco.) Photocopying is easy. And I just tried the scanner today and it was so easy it was scary. I have Photoshop, so I import the document from there and save it to my hard drive.

I'm sorry that a few other people have had negative experiences, but I'm extremely happy with this all-in-one.

1-0 out of 5 stars MOST HORRIFIC EXPERIENCE EVER!
Purchased this all-in-one BRAND NEW IN BOX through Amazon in June, 2004. Item once installed had perpetual scanner error due to various DEBRIS under scanner glass.
Upon reporting this to Epson, they proceed to ship me a REFURB to replace a NEW PRODUCT. The REFURB did not come with a USB cable, also had DEBRIS under scanner glass, and the print head was OLD thus producing AWFUL print jobs.
I have been a fan of the HP printer for over a decade, and tried another manufacturer at my partner's request. I will not pay two cents for an Epson printer, EVER.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Printer, Lousy Scanning Software
This is a great printer. It's fast, it does a good job, and the ink cartridges go the distance. The biggest flaw is the scanning software. IT IS TERRIBLE! You scan your image and you can get to it one time, after that it is GONE unless you save it on your hard drive. If you want to change image type (e.g. from .tif to .jpeg,) forget it. You have to start the scan all over again. If you are interested in a printer, this one is great, but if you scan often or are a beginner I would look elsewhere. ... Read more

Epson's full-featured, high-value FX-890N serial-impact printer offers the durability and ease of use required for essential daily printing. This 9-pin, dot-matrix, narrow-carriage workhorse boasts an MTBF rating of 20,000 power-on hours (POH) and speeds of up to 680 cps (characters per second).

Engineered for seamless integration, the FX-890N's interfaces include parallel, USB 1.1, an additional slot for optional interface cards, and an internal 10/100 Base-TX Ethernet print server with support for Windows (3.x, 95, 98, Me, NT, 2000, and XP), Novell Netware, Linux and UNIX, and Macintosh OS 7.x or later or OS X.

Its easy-to-install 7.5 million-character ribbon cartridge boosts productivity and ensures a low cost per page, while its 400 million-character print-head life heightens its dependability. Included Epson Remote Configuration Manager software simplifies printer setup and setting selection via most Windows operating systems.

Ideal for rugged environments, the printer is a perfect drop-in replacement for the Epson FX-880/880+/980 or Okidata Microline 320/320 Turbo. It handles forms up to seven parts thick via four convenient paper paths, and its redesigned control panel features a lock-out mode and other intuitive functions.

The printer is Novell tested and approved and is backed by Epson's comprehensive three-year warranty with technical support.
