And that's this printer's major problem. I run quite a few pages through it, but unless I print a few every single week, it gums up and then needs dozens of cleaning routines to get it back to ship shape. This wastes hundreds of dollars worth of ink every year. It's ridiculous that this thing can't stay unclogged better than that. I ran the drain tubes to a jar so I can quantify just how much ink it's wasting, and I empty that 125ml jar when it's full at least 3x per year. I run about 250 ml of ink of each color per year, so there's your math: 2000 ml of ink per year, 375ml of ink wasted via cleaning routines, for an astounding 18.8% waste.
Also, the printer is a few years old, but the build has never been good. Cheap plastic, poorly joined. Nowadays, panels flop open on their own (bad latches and the print head's own motion is violent enough to pop them) which causes mechanical problems and interference with the print head.
I love the images, but I will never get another Epson inkjet again. Canon, here we come.
I loaded the Matte ink and have dedicated the printer to producing B&W images on matte papers from scanned 4x5 B&W (and larger) negatives--for the time being. Results are very good. It won't turn a badly taken, developed and scanned negative into a great picture, but if one is using a negative able to produce a good B&W print the old chemical way, the printer will give you very pleasing inkjet print results.
I haven't run it through very many of all possible functions. I will just comment on some of the refinements of the R2400 over the Epson 2200 (which I also have and intend to keep, as it works reliably and so well for color reproduction of original art work). The R2400 has a tighter dpi pattern--the resolution has grown from the 2200's 2880 dpi to 5760 dpi (in one direction--it remains 1440 for both printers in the other direction).
Anyone familar with old silver-based papers knows that inspection of a photographic print with a lupe can show astounding detail even as the image vanishes into the silver grain pattern--something inkjet reproduction cannot duplicate. However, using an 8x power lupe, I simply cannot see any obvious inkjet dots in large, finished B&W prints on 13x19 Epson velvet paper printed with the R2400. Also, the degree of fuzziness of the image on velvet paper at 8 power is only slightly more than in the digital image seen on my Apple Cinema display. It seems the paper resolution has increased dramatically over results from the Epson 2200 (where 8x inspection of prints shows the image demolished in noticable dots). So, the R2400 produces prints that appear wonderfully sharp with the naked eye.
Another surprise is that my 20" Apple Cinema's LSD image provides a near dead-on means of determining the appearance of the print on velvet paper. For printing color on my Epson 2200, it is necessary to use a CRT monitor and still make guesses based on experience. The Epson R2400's functions all work on Apple OSX 10.3 using a G5 2.5 gHZ Powermac.
The R2400's paper loading is more sophisticated than on the Epson 2200. Heavier Epson papers can be loaded into a second steeply tilted single paper loader--not needing be fed in straight and level as in the 2200. Other brands of heavy matte papers must be fed straight in, but through the front. In all cases, whether using the single sheet loader or the front end loading, the printer eventually grabs the paper and positions it prior to printing.
Nice printer. Gives me reason now to start loading my old cut film holders again and hauling big camera's around without the need of launching whole hog into a chemical darkroom other than what is necessary to just develop film.
My only rap on the delivery of the printer is that the box was pretty chewed up when it arrived via UPS though the machine was OK.
Set up was straightforward on my Mac OSX machine. My impression of doing so it s been a few weeks now was that I actually resorted to reading the manual at a couple of points - not something I typically need to do for a printer.
Overall I d say this printer is like driving a car with manual transmission where the rest of the field are automatics. This isn't a printer system you will configure once and click-print unless you intend to use one ink-set/paper combination for everything.
Following the analogy to a car, if your printing needs are mixed media, general printing with a 13x19 print a few times a year I don't think this is a good choice. You will be happier with nice "automatic".
On the other hand if you are familiar with the issues of color management as it applies to printing, you know what an icc profile is and have dozens of them, understand what the difference is between reflective vs. perceptual intent and calibrate your monitor every couple of weeks this printer offers you a lot of control over almost every aspect of your output. But you have to manage much of it.
Is the r2400 "better than" anybody else? There are other sites to delve into details of the quality issues (like Luminous Landscape). I put some of the prints I m getting from the r2400 next to prints of the same file from prior machines and the differences are generally subtle for color prints. The improvement in B&W is significant. As far as resolution and such goes at the desktop level you are far more likely to effect those aspects through your file handling and configuration settings than with the mechanical aspects of the printer.
There are downsides to this machine. The ink is very expensive and the r2400 chews it up pretty fast. I haven't done enough printing to put very hard numbers to that yet but it feels like I m paying about $0.45 per print in ink on an 8x10. I was warned about this by some experts prior to buying. In fact I was really encouraged to spend the extra dough and go for the 3800 for the larger ink tanks. For me it came down to allocation of resources. I need the money for other things and don't need to produce large volumes of prints. I am not, however, busting out as many large prints as I was on the PRO9000 because of the cost issue.
It is slow when you are producing highest quality prints. I don't think this would be a good solution for anyone needing a production printer.
To conclude I am not in love with this printer but it does what I ask of it and does it well. I have a lot of control over the output along with the responsibility to know what I have to do to achieve it. It's pricey to operate and delivers high quality prints.
