    Written on: 03/12/2009

    An appalling printer: incredibly expensive to run, and I spent most of my time wasting vast amounts of ink trying to clean the print head as all the prints always had lines, marks, or casts. It never worked properly, and packed up after a comparatively short, completely useless and ruinously costly life. I can think of nothing in its favour except that it always looked as though it really meant business.....right up until the moment that you turned it on. It's hard to believe that a firm like… Read Full Review

    Written on: 18/02/2009

    I have only used this printer with genuine Epson ink and the results sre fantastic. It can take a couple of cleans if it has not been used for a while. I can't comment of text quality as I have only used it as a photo printer. If you want superb A4 prints this is the one to go for… Read Full Review

    Yes, practicality should also be considered when buying a printer. I noticed that R8XX model of Epson has expensive inks which is a big turn off for users. Thanks for doing this review, it cleared up the air.

    Not work it. If this is laserjet printing, I will use Costco to print. If there is a better system out there, show it to me. Printing is fun, but not this way!… Read Full Review

    Written on: 26/10/2008 by C378890580 (1 review written)

    An expensive printer which has not jusitfied its price. Colour printing is variable; sometimes good, often very poor, no matter how you try to manipulate the options list. Colour saturation is common, as well as the opposite effect of washed out colour. I cannot rely upon this machine, nor - in my experience - the Epson 'help' line. What use is a printer that cannot (without very complicated manipulation) print envelopes? My old HP Photosmart still works better and more reliably. Finally… Read Full Review

    All in all, this Epson Stylus R800 is a complete waste of money and time trying to get this thing to work at all, i would not even think about buying this again if it were priced as low as 100 Euro… Read Full Review

    “When it works this printer generally turns out clean...”

    Written on: 29/06/2007 by oldfule (3 reviews written)

    When it works this printer generally turns out clean photos on glossy photo paper and crisp matt text with matt images on paper. But it'll reject most other media such as WH Smith matt 180 gsm card (which is certainly not heavy card) or pre-cut greeting cards. Although I've had this thing for about three years now its just about packed it in completely and my usage is far from onerous. It'll slip two pages for every page it prints and that's after countless "Media not loaded properly" error… Read Full Review

    “The Epson R800 and its A3 printing cousin the R1800...”

    Written on: 11/04/2006 by Keith the Astrophysicist (11 reviews written)

    The Epson R800 and its A3 printing cousin the R1800 are designed to provide professional quality photographic printing. To achieve this there are eight different ink cartridges (magenta, cyan, yellow, matte black, photo black, red , blue and a gloss optimiser). The optimiser is to improve the appearance of the colours when printed on to glossy paper by preventing a 'bronzing' effect when viewed at an angle. Most importantly, the inks used in this printer are rated to be fade resistant for over… Read Full Review

    Written on: 25/05/2005 by XIII13 (2 reviews written)

    The Epson Stylus R800 is a great printer considering the price. It gives excellent results in both colour (using Epsons own ink and paper).

    I have printed photographs from scanned negatives that have come our better that the lab prints using this printer with Adobe Photoshop Elements (that came free with the printer).

    My only issue would be around colour matching (as with any printer). If you want perfect results you need to get some custom ICC colour spaces made, and this can be quite… Read Full Review
