Epson Stylus Photo R800 Reviews

GoodGearGuide reviews the Epson Stylus Photo R800 and writes;
“The R800 made a mess of narrow parallel lines. And when we tried to print our CMYK-format test photo with this model, we ran into the same problem that we did with Epson’s STYLUS PHOTO R200: the photo sometimes printed too dark and appeared severely underexposed. Even when it did print correctly, the image was a little duller than when output from other printers we tested. Images printed on the R800 in the more-common RGB format looked gorgeous, with realistic textures, sharp detail, and strong, rich colours.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Imaging-resource reviews the Epson Stylus Photo R800 and writes;
“The first is that the Epson is perfectly at home printing on several paper types including Photo Glossy, Premium Luster, Enhanced Matte and Matte Heavyweight. The matte papers make a flatter print, with less density in the shadows, since the paper absorbs the ink, but their high tones are brighter for the same reason. Luster doesn’t absorb as much ink thanks to its medium glossy surface.”

ShutterBug reviews the Epson Stylus Photo R800 and writes;
“After extensive printing I can say that prints made with the R800 would meet gallery quality standards. Both glossy and luster prints exhibit high detail sharpness, snappy contrast, rich, dark blacks and a wide tonal range with good highlight and shadow detail, clean whites and vibrant colors.”

MACworld reviews the Epson Stylus Photo R800 and writes;
“Test prints made at the maximum resolution (5,760 by 1,440 dpi) revealed almost no dot pattern even when viewed with a 10x loupe. Test prints made on the R800 were brighter and more saturated than prints from the Stylus Photo 2200, and the gray-scale reproduction was neutral. This excellent output was easy to achieve; with Epson paper and profiles, my first test print was perfect.”

PCMag reviews the Epson Stylus Photo R800 and writes;
“In addition to true photo quality, the R800 offers graphics output that rates as very good, missing out on excellent only because colors on plain paper (but not glossy paper) leaned toward a pastel look. Text quality rates as good, with several of the fonts we tested with readable even at 4 points, but one needed to be 12 points to be easily readable.”

PhotographyBlog reviews the Epson Stylus Photo R800 and writes;
“The Epson Stylus Photo R800 is the perfect photo printer. Well, almost. It quickly and easily produces stunning prints that are the match of any traditional photo lab, which will last in excess of 80 years when displayed correctly behind glass. It also completely solves the “bronzing” issue that affects the Epson 2100, allowing you to make gloss, semigloss and matte prints without any signs of this issue. In short, if you want to make any kind of archival quality print, including gloss, in the comfort of your own home, then the Epson Stylus Photo R800 is a must-buy.”

Photo-i.co.uk reviews the Epson Stylus Photo R800 and writes;
“Colours on the R800 are nothing short of superb. I have never had a better quality from the photo-i test print, skin tones are more lifelike than anything I have seen before and I have seen allot of printers over the years. The Gloss Optimizer gives a good gloss finish to glossy media, a feature every 2100 owner will be enviable off.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Reviews.cnet reviews the Epson Stylus Photo R800 and writes;
“Color photos look very good as well, and the printer can produce the neutral, color-accurate output important to enthusiasts as well as saturated, consumer-friendly photos. I compared some blue- and red-intensive photos from a variety of printers to see if the addition of those primaries improved the R800′s color reproduction.”
