Epson L800 CIS printer
I just got my L800 yesterday, do you have a icm profile for the printer? It's just probably the room and it's night time here but the prints off it are darker than I had hoped.
I have the L800. Bought it last May. I would agree with your initial observation. Prints tended to be dark than what I have on the Mac's calibrated screen. Using the Epson printing software, I experimented and in most cases, adjusted the brightness (to level 15).
Am still looking for L800 ICC profiles for non-Epson papers. Apparently, there's none. But getting the EPSON photo paper has been equally difficult in Manila (LOL, Canon is better in this regard). They're usually out of stock. Today, I was finally able to get the Epson glossy from a major distributor although I was looking for the premium glossy (also out of stock).
