Epson R1800 vs Epson stylus 1400
Aug 7, 2008

I've had an 1800 for 16 months now and it has developed horizontal banding. I'm pretty disgusted that I paid $500 for a machine that is un-repairable and needs replacement so soon.

Any I called Epson to complain and they referred me to their "Loyalty" program which offers you to buy new product at deep discounts. Well they don't have the 1800 or 1900 in the Loyalty program but they do offer a 1400 for $229 with free shipping. Its not a refurb, and has full warranty.

My question is:
How does the print quality and color trueness of the 1400 compare to the 1800?

I'm inclined to NEVER give another penny to Epson, but will research my options before deciding.
