Im using a pretty cheap Epson Stylus Photo R200, with pretty good results. Its not an R800, but at 1/3 of the cost, you cant expect the same quality.

It can print borderless in 4x6" and Leter sized papers, and you can use it to print CDs and DVDs directly too (with the included soft). As it uses separate ink cartridges for every color you can change only the emptied color instead of all 5 colors as in my old Stylus Photo 820. Guillermo..

For me it was a toss up between the Epson R800 which does panoramas and letter size and the Canon I9900 which does up to 13x19 prints. I was looking for a printer that had long lasting inks as wanted my children to enjoy the pictures long after i'm gone so thats why I was looking at one of these two for there quality and longevity of inks. I bought the Canon because I knew I would like printing up to 13x19. This website had some of the best reviews I could find anywhere on printers and helped in my decision. If you aren't looking to spend alot you may be better off getting prints done at a photo store for quality and longevity reasons. But I have never regreted my purchase of the I9900.

Allthough I still would love to have the Epson R200 for it's DVD printing capabilities I burn alot of my own movies on DVD. So for me it was a tuff decision to make, {which ONE printer to buy}? Ken..

I adore my R800, though waited and waited for a wide-format version and it never showed up. I realized that the bigger pictures sucked up so much ink that I hesitated to print them. Images are beautiful! Liz..

It cannot be true you have missed the introduction of the wide carriage R1800...

One thing about photo printers.... what are you going to want out of these photos? Do you want them to last for generations to come or something for just "now". All photo printers are not the same (not talking quality only) but longevity of photos. I for one when I was shoping for a photo printer wanted best quality PLUS longevity of the photo. For this reason I picked the Epson Picturemate. The test came back that the quality of the photo will last way beyond that of "lab" developed photos.

If you want archival quality prints (prints that will last for generations to come like prints developed in photo labs) then you need to consider what home printer will do just that and Epson Picturemate produces excellent photos that are archival quality...
