Epson Stylus Photo R800 Printer

 

The Stylus Photo R800 adds red and blue inks to the standard set of cyan, magenta, and yellow inks; but it omits light photo cyan and light photo magenta. Other cartridges supply photo black, matte black (for text), and a gloss overcoat. The matte...

Prints on rolls of photo paper

Slow print speeds

The R800 can print on rolls of photo paper either 4 inches or 8.3 inches wide. The printer has a button that pushes finished photos out to be cut off, and then retracts the excess paper to avoid waste. You don't have to remove paper from the main tray...

Service and support

 

Epson Stylus Photo R800

Excellent print quality; relatively fast photo printing; flexible printer driver; no need to swap Matte Black and Photo Black cartridges.

Doesn't handle changes in output resolution gracefully; no PictBridge support.

This excellent printer cedes its Editors' Choice crown to the Canon iP8500 but remains a great choice for photo enthusiasts despite some finicky printhead behavior.

Epson Stylus Photo R800

 

The Epson Stylus Photo R800 can function as your single, all-purpose printer. It offers a large color gamut and true photo quality, and is designed for easy printing on CDs and DVDs.

Photos are true photo quality; separate cartridge for each color; Epson's easiest approach yet for printing on printable CDs and DVDs.

No memory card slots, even for transferring files to your PC; does not do direct printing at all; relatively slow for standard printing.

Digital Imaging Printer Review: Epson Photo Stylus R800 Printer

 

When some desperate soul grabs our lapels as we're trying to cross the street and demands to know which photo printer to buy, we shrug our shoulders and confide, "You really can't go wrong these days." But there are a lot of ways you can...

You can't go wrong, we have to repeat, but there's a lot of ways you can go right with the Epson R800.

Epson Stylus Photo R800

 

This fast and quiet printer produces beautiful, dot-free prints-it could be the only photo printer you'll ever need.

Outstanding print quality ; extended color gamut ; extremely quiet ; quick

None significant

The R800 uses a minuscule 1.5-picoliter print head. This allows a much smaller drop of ink to be placed on the paper, giving the prints a smoother look than previous models could achieve

Prints RGB very well

CMYK prints are distorted, prints text slowly

If you plan on printing a lot of snapshots, you'll appreciate the R800's roll feeder; and as long as you stick with RGB files, the R800 will reward you with great-looking photo prints.
