Epson R800

R800
Review Date: May 12, 2010 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 5 

 
Pros: Color matching was perfect right out of the box. Prints looked fantastic!
Cons:
After 6 months of use I had to continually run the cleaning utility to get clean prints.

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.
