Beautiful prints!

Makes beautiful prints, I love this printer! The quality is amazing, even when viewed under an 8x loupe! I've used it with Matte, Luster, and Glossy paper and the results are striking on all! Definitely download the ICC profiles for the paper you are using, it makes a difference. My only complaint: It has the ability to print up to 13 x 44 inches, but uses the same size ink cartridge as most letter-size printers...

I was hesitant to write a review when I first purchased the Epson R1900 Printer as I wanted to run it for awhile ... just to see. So far, I haven't been all that excited about this printer and more than likely wouldn't recommend it. True .. I do get nice prints and the overall performance is good ... not excellent ... just good. The issues I have are as follows: First, it was advertised to have corrected the problem with the Print Heads plugging up frequently. This was evident in my R1800 which is why I upgraded to the R1900 in the first place. Today, I question that claim (and my decision) since within a month of purchase I was already cleaning the heads and have done so repeatedly since. Secondly ~ It runs through Ink way to fast. Especially the gloss optimizer. If I were printing on a lot of glossy paper I would grin and bear it. However, I've been printing on Epson Matt Paper with the Gloss Optimizer turned off and yet I still need to replace the cartridge.

Stylus Photo R1900 is wonderful

By

from Scotts Valley, CA

I have been using this product for over a year but just got it registered. I was looking for a mid-range printer that still used pigment ink for archival purposes and did not cost an arm and a leg. I found it in the R1900. I upgraded from the R1800 because this printer can print on canvas too, although I have not printed on canvas yet. I am a fine artist and I have been able to make the most exquisite archival prints up to 13" on one side and up to 19" on the other. I sell them at shows and in art stores. This way I have complete control over the quality. With Epson's archival paper and this printer, you have a nice business asset.

Love - Hate

By

from Edgewater, Md.

Hate that the ink is so expensive-all 8 of them.And they need replaced so often. If I haven't used this printer for a while it can take an hour or more to get it working again. Love the pictures it produces. Print quality is fantastic.

Long Lasting

By

from Warrensville Hts. Ohio

I've had the 1900 for quiet awhile and it has never failed me. The pictures it prints are a thing of beauty and as of yet I have no intention of replacing it unless it breaks down and I'm forced to get the 2000.

R1900

By

from Naples, Florida

The printer is great when working right. It will use a lot of ink when printing on canvas. I do not use the printer has a blocked port and the head cleaner can not correct this problem Tech support told me to try outside service or to buy another printer. I would not recommend this printer if you are on a budget. I just use a printing service to fill my needs.

Always replacing the ink

By

from Brooklyn, NY

Though this printer does a good job, it seems the ink runs out after every two prints. First the magenta, which you replace, and then before you can print another, it says your cyan ran out. I've maybe used the printer 4 times and now I just give up. If I could do it over, I would have just kept my old Stylus 1280. Not recommended.

R1900 Printer

By

from Undisclosed

I have had this printer for several years and it always prints flawlessly in color or B&W. The cartridges are small however that is not a bad thin altogether if you print as a hobbyist, my walls are full so I use it less frequently now.
