The 1800 doesn't print B&W as well and it's a bigger pain to dial in. If you print on glossy paper, the gloss optimizer on the 1800 evens out the sheen in the whites to match the sheen laid down on the rest of the print. But if you print on lustre or mat paper then it's not an issue. The 2400 doesn't have a gloss optimizer. I guess the bottom line would be: get the 1800 if you print uber-glossy prints and don't print B&W. Otherwise, get the 2400.
