Epson R1900


Vivid color: That's how it rolls If high-gloss color photos turn you on, the new Epson R1900 will give you a real thrill. Using long-lasting pigment inks and a special gloss optimizer, the wide-format printer puts out shiny, eye-popping photos up to...

Brilliant glossy prints. Great color accuracy. Quiet. Moderately fast. Reasonable ink cost per print

Black-and-white photos may show slight color casts on some papers. Basic photo setting does not put out quality prints

Don't buy the R1900 if you print mostly black-and-whites. High-gloss, color-packed photos are what this printer rolls out best.

Doesn't produce great black-and-white prints

Epson Stylus Photo R1900


Advances in printer technology don't come along very frequently and tend to be less than earth-shattering. Almost three years after Epson introduced the widely popular Stylus Photo R1800 , the company has released the Stylus Photo R1900, which brings...

Excellent color photo printing; big enough for scrapbookers; roll feed capable; long-lived prints; CD- and DVD-label printing; many paper options; new ink set enhances skin tones.

Large footprint; no card reader.

Epson's Stylus Pro R1900 13-inch-wide photo printer is great for scrapbookers who want to print with pigment ink, or advanced photographers who want to print large, but can't justify the expense of a pro-level printer.

Epson Stylus Photo R1900


Coming as it does from Epson, a company with a well-earned reputation for high-quality photo printer output, the Epson Stylus Photo R1900 ($549 direct) boasts impeccable credentials. More important, it offers all the right features for the serious...

True photo quality. Prints at up to 13 by 44 inches. Prints on CDs and DVDs. Claims up to 300-year lifetime for photos

Recovering from paper jams in the rear feed slot is awkward, time-consuming, and explained incorrectly in the generated error message

With a claimed 300-year lifetime for photos kept in dark storage, the Epson Stylus Photo R1900's high-quality output promises to last for generations.

Highly Recommended!

Epson Stylus Photo R1900 Review


The Epson Stylus Photo R1800 has been a popular choice for digital photographers requiring the13x19 format, but not willing or able to spend the additional money for the R2400. Add to that exceptional gloss printing thanks to a special gloss...

Overall the Epson Stylus Photo R1900 is a solid upgrade to what was already a very good printer. The new ink mix, along with the improved gloss optimizer have visibly improved the output. For black and white work, I'd stick with the Epson R2400 or...

Enthusiast photo printer


Some reviews say the Epson Stylus Photo R1900 -- recently replaced by the very similar Epson Stylus Photo R2000 -- offers the best glossy photo prints of any inkjet printer at this price, probably due to the gloss-enhancer function. However, some...

Excellent glossy photos, great skin tones, very accurate colors, prints up to 13 inches by 44 inches

Expensive replacement cartridges, early complaints of defective cartridges, too costly to use as a text printer, mac users cite initial difficulties

Epson R1900


The Epson R1900 Photo Printer is a big, powerful printer that can produce sharp, accurate prints at a wide range of different sizes. It can print on paper from 4 x 6 right up to 13 x 19, and can produce very large 13 x 44 prints from a special roll of...

Perhaps unsurprisingly for a printer that produces large prints, the R1900 is a large printer; with the trays unfolded, it is 27 inches deep and over 15 inches high. Fortunately, the main paper input and output trays fold up when the printer is not in...

A serious piece of equipment capable of producing big, beautiful prints

Good color accuracy; Good detail performance

Slow, slow, sloooooow; Massive footprint

The Epson R1900 Photo Printer is a great printer for the serious photographer; it produces big, beautiful prints with good color and can handle big prints. It can't, however, pint quickly and is rather slow at printing on plain paper.
