This is a great printer as long as it is working. We are very many users that have suffered major issues when the printer becomes 2-3 years old. The printer starts spearing the prints with black ink and also clogging the Photo back ink. The people that have had the printer examined by Epson have been offered to change the printhead due to leakage at a cost that is around 75% of the price they onde paid. It seems to be a design problem and Epson is at the moment not answering mails regarding ...

I could not be more pleased with this printer. The inks are spendy, true, but you buy individual colors, of which there are so many that I can hope to spread the purchase out over many weeks. The K3 ink set does tend to be a bit more subdued than dye inks, but so far I've not encountered an image for which I couldn't just yank the "saturation" slider to compensate. Tones are rich and subtle, black and white is a joy on both matte and glossy. About all I've had to do to map from screen to ...

Top quality prints up to A3+ (color and bw). The only downside is ink cost. This should be a lot better. Problems: Ink/print cost

I can only second the majority of what has been said, but add the perspective of someone who used, and frequently wanted to abuse an Epson R2400. When I could get the 2400 to feed properly, I really liked the prints the it was capable of, but I had invested in it because I do a lot of panoramic landscapes, and wanted to be able to print custom lengths to roll paper. The best that could be said for the 2400''s roll paper feeding was that it was whimsical at times and down right diabolical the ...

I have an analog heritage and a slight preference for BW. Previously I worked with a HP 8450, which is an A4 Dye printer. This printer had 3 blacks (2 x grey, 1 x black) and was - most of the times - very capable in printing BW. The downside was that you need to use swellable paper in order to protect the dyes. This rules nearly all fine art and matt papers out. In practice I used HP paper only. This, the limitation to A4 and the difficulty to reproduce results (some BW's just looked great, ...

My new printer was delivered to me on April 1st, no joke! I purchased the standard Epson Premium Glossy and Semigloss for the test runs, I should have known better: Glossy is not for me, has never been, nothing changed there. Others swear by it, don´t know which sells most. Output is of very high quality, exceeding my own high expectations. I have settled meanwhile with Epson Velvet for matte, mainly B&W prints, otherwise when really worth it, Ilford Galerie Gold Fibre Silk. For now, Epson ...

Nothing to complian about with this printer. I purchased so I could print B & W up to A3+ and have not been disapointed. Works as well as Epson say it does. The comments from the Amazon link all seem to be about the R300 a much older and smaller printer
