I purchased the R800 as soon as it was available in the US. I was happy with the printer for the first 6 months. From 6 months to 18 months the printer required more and more cleaning due to clogged jets The cleaning utility uses a lot of ink! After 18 months I couldn't get a decent print and had to toss the printer. I only used Epson inks and printed at least weekly, so the head clogging wasn't from the printer sitting idle for extended periods.
I really liked the print quality of this printer. Maybe I was just unlucky.
