My sister got a "steal" price for 2 of these bad boys so I bought the other from her. Its still in the box and I didnt even get a chance to toy with it. Got home today and had to get ready for a shoot. Shoot went ok and I'll post some pics up later [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I made a test print on the supplied 8.5x11 glossy paper of my nieces taking on my 10d and it came out flawless! I was so amazed by the quality of the printer.

Anyways, anyone have this printer? Anything I should know about it? Besides whats avalilable in the manual. How long does the ink cartridges last and how many prints can I get from it.. What other photo paper works well besides epson paper... Thanks!!

I've got the R1800 and love it! ONLY buy Epson paper & ink and get yourself some "Luster" paper, its beautiful.

I got an an Epson 2200. In my school we have several other high end Epson printers They all perform great. Using The Epson paper ICC profiles greatly enhances the out put.

thanks for the reply..

when installing the ink cartridges did you remove the plastic covering on the bottom or do you just stick it in and puncture it?
