Epson Stylus Photo R1900 A3+ Printer
I'm a professional photographer and have to agree with the other review from the Graphic Designer.... Don't get this one.
Build quality is excellent and I had high hopes as it was unpacked and plugged in. The print quality was poor to begin with and only after plenty of fiddling, tweaking and general frustration have I got to a point where the prints are nearly as good as my ancient Photo EX (now a museum piece). I really expected to see an improvement in 10 years!
I print only matt prints and have never used a single piece of gloss paper, however I've used two gloss black cartridges and three gloss optimisers in two months (and about 50 A3 prints) - this is because every time you switch on or do a nozzle clean it cleans all nozzles. When is Epson going to improve software to allow you to purge ONLY the tank you've just replaced or need to clean? You do a 'nozzle check' and there may be one or two colours playing up - why not purge only those colours instead of spraying those precious 11mls (what a joke!) of ink into the sponge at the side?
I'm putting this one on ebay so if you think it's great and want it - come and get it. I'm off to look at the R2880 - it is getting decent reviews though does still suffer with the pathetic 11ml tanks....
