I'll start with a short review since I just got the printer and have only run 5 prints through it. I will update in a week or so with more information.

Setup and installation was easy. I have it on my network for my Windows machines and it is connected directly to my Mac Pro. The install documentation said to get the latest driver for Leopard off of their site, which I did and installed with no problem. The latest Windows driver was on the installation CD.

The reason I called this review "State of the Art" is Epson developed Radiance, the new color-matching technology built into the R1900. This is the first printer with it, even the current Epson Pro printers don't have it. [...] has an article about it.

The few pictures I have printed are beautiful and they printed very fast.

I printed 3 on Epson's Ultra Premium luster 8.5 x 11 paper using Photoshop CS2. I tried different settings for each print of the same standard color matching target. All three printed very nice and as expected, a little different. Using "Photoshop Determines Colors", "Printer Determines Colors" and "No Color Management", with appropriate settings on the printer driver. So it will be up to you to decide which settings you want to use.

Next, as a test I printed a photo, of my daughter, on plain HP Bright White paper. WOW, is all I can say. Plain paper and it looked great.

For my last test I picked a random paper size, 12" x 12", that I cut from a 13" x 19" sheet of matte paper. I changed the paper size in the driver and printed. No problem, it printed just fine and also was beautiful.

I plan on getting a roll of paper too. I've wanted to print some banners, something I couldn't do with my current Canon I9900.

I'd think seriously before buying this printer. I purchased this printer about 6 weeks ago after NAPP members were offered a discount. I purchased it directly from the Epson Store. I watched the video tutorials on how to get the best results using the R1900 and printing out of Lightroom that were provided on [...] I was DELIGHTED at the output and the quality. Never had my printer output so closely matched that of my calibrated monitor, and the 13x19 inch glossies were stunning. I was THRILLED...

UNTIL...about 5 weeks after purchasing the printer I had to replace the Gloss Optimizer cartridge. This runs out fairly quickly as it is applied to the entire photo regardless of colors. Fine, I had extra genuine Epson cartridges I had purchased from a national retailer. Even though it was the correct cartridge the printer would not recognize it, then remembering that Epson had sent an extra Gloss cartridge, I dug it out thinking I had indeed bought the wrong one. I replaced it with the one Epson sent and all was good. I confirmed I had the RIGHT cartridge, and chalked it up to a defective cartridge. No biggy, it happens...THEN the Cyan ran out. I replaced it with a cartridge that I bought directly from the Epson store and had the same issue. The printer says it's an incompatible cartridge. IT is NOT. I called Epson support on Friday and they said they would send me a new cartridge and that it would be 3-5 days. Fine, but in the meantime I had prints that needed to be printed, so I again went to a retailer and bought a cyan cartridge. Not recognized. I googled the issue and found that other users had had the same issue, and that Epson had replaced their printers with brand new ones. I called Epson again.

I have had 3 incidents of this printer failing to recognize newly opened cartridges. The printer will give you the "out of ink status" and will not function at all at that point. I called Epson and was told that the cause was a faulty computer chip in certain ink cartridges (matte black, magenta were my culprits) and that they were working on it. The printer is only good if you have cartridges that work and Epson is knowingly selling defective cartridges. If, like myself, you miss a deadline because you naturally assumed you were being sold something that worked, you are out of luck. I will be sending this printer and all my useless cartridges back.

Update:
Was told that I could not get my money back, only another printer. This solves nothing. I was told to call Customer Relations (another toll call). After this person spoke with her higher ups, she admitted that there was a problem with a "batch" of ink and that they corrected it and they would send me more ink. If you notice, the first review of this ink problem on this site was back in August. That is a pretty long batch run wouldn't you say? I asked for verification of the problem and the date it was resolved. She told me she couldn't give me that. I told her about the missed deadline and that I could not accept jobs with this printer unless she could guarantee that I would not experience this problem again. She told me she could not do that and then graciously told me there are no guarantees in life. Remember, they knew about this at least back in August and I just bought my defective ink therefore they have been selling this ink knowing it was defective and this is the response I get from Epson.
