I have owned the Epson R1900 for over a year. It makes impressive prints, and seems to be frugal with ink. It prints very well on many paper types and brands. I buy ink direct from Epson as it seem to be the best deal I can find. I haven't had any regrets and neither do the people I have made prints for!


A pigment-based ink will provide you with less variation in finish. For instance, with the Epson R2000 (pigment), the ink is glossy. With many other pigment printers, it's very flat. Some have an additional gloss cartridge, but that only gets you up to two finishes.

With a dye-based printer, you have much more variation in the finish. Basically, the paper you choose determines whether you have a matte, glossy, or satin look. It also determines whether it will have a warm, cool, or neutral hue. Because pigment-based inks are basically opaque, you don't get these choices.

Printer Ink Cartridges

Nice post/ share..I do agree on that one.It does.and we need every details of the color being printed on the printer we are using.
