“Darkroom?”

published 16/03/2006

ProExcellent photo quality

ConsNo USB cable

I bought my new Epson Stylus Photo R800 in December last year, shortly before Christmas. Kind of present for myself! It was replacement for my old photo printer, as the name suggests - another Epson - Stylus Photo 890. It was a great printer, reliable, durable, making great quality prints until...

Consdoesnt have a built-in card reader

I’d like to share this Epson printer with you. It is well worth the investment if you want high quality prints with superb colour. • The printer is able to provide ‘borderless’ prints although in reality the A4 and over prints actually have a 2 mm border approx which isn’t bad at all. It gives...

In a nut shell, steer clear. Epson have asked for this poor rating by trying to rip me (a CUSTOMER) off by thinking that it is OK to charge £14 per ink cartridge, of which there are EIGHT (yep, a HUNDRED QUIDs worth) and which empty like a leaking bucket. Do you get a lot of ink in an ink...

Obviously as a range topping printer, you'd expect the print quality to be that little bit special - and this printer doesn't dissapoint. With 8 seperate ink tanks, including a dedicated Gloss optimizer for high standard prints, the results are truly inspiring, with an updated Epson design, which...

ProHigh Print Quality, Price

ConsSpeed, Running Costs

The Epson R800 should feature on the 'consider' list of anyone looking for an inkjet printer for high quality photo printing. At full print resolution and on premium photo paper, the results from this printer are excellent - comparable in many cases to digital prints from the high-street kiosks...

“Great printer.”

published 23/10/2006

ProPrint Quality, CD Printing.

ConsPrice, Ink Price, Slow printing.

I have owned an Epson R800 for about 12 months now and we have a bit of a love/hate relationship. The upsides to this printer are - Print quality - Simply amazing. On highest DPI settings this printer will print photos as good as professional kiosks will. I really can't fault it. Simplicity...

ProGreat quality and reasonably cheap.

ConsOnly up to A4 printing, and quite slow.

Now this is an excellent printer, that again, is easy to use, and has different levels of quality, so can also be use for everyday printing, and not saved for the holiday snaps! Some of the after-market inks are actually ok with this printer as well, as i know some of them are not as compatable...

ConsNot found any

I have had this printer for over a year now and am very pleased with it. I have read another CIAO review on this printer and do not agree with its comments about ink. For a start the cartridges are not £18 - Amazon have them at £11.01 and I have seen them for £9 elsewhere. I find they last a...

ConsIt's always out of ink. Always.

Do not buy this printer. There are 8 ink cartridges, and one will always be empty. The prints are not professional quality, and since the ink cartridges need constant replacing, your prints will cost about $10 each. Snapfish will print better quality photos for a fraction of the price. To make...
