    Gawd, I've had some terrible experiences with Epsons. Constantly clog, never work properly, inconsistent results, so on and so forth.

    If anything, I would suggest HP, or Canon... and this coming from a "I'd rather send my pictures out for printing than buy printers, ink and paper" kinda guy... lol

    As far as the differences between the 3 you outline above, you are a simple google away from getting your answers. Also
    head over to Steve's Digicams where you will find in depth reviews of the printers you are asking about.

    I recently upgraded from an HP printer to the R2880 which is the replacement for the R2400. It is an outstanding printer and I have had no problems with it. It does have a bit of a learning curve compared to most other printers that I have owned, but this is from all of the options available that I have never had on other printers.

    The only con to this printer that I believe you should be aware of is the ink cartridge capacity. I use this for home printing, so it is not in constant use. It is perfect for what I do.

    If you are using this in a professional capacity or will be printing a lot of photos then I would suggest you look at the 3600 instead. You ink to print cost savings would be worth the switch. For me I was afraid that I would have a $56.00 cartridge dry up before I used it up. And with 9 cartridges that could get expensive.

    The other alternative, which frankly would then put you into the 3600 price range would be a tank fill system. There are two available at this point in time for the 2880 from other manufactures that will work and both run in the $200 - $300 area to get started.

    The last advantage to the 3600 is it will do 17" wide prints vs the 13" wide prints the 2880 will do.

    The R1420 and R1900 are nice home printers but if you want some noticeably improved quality to your prints the R2880 would be where to start.

    I have the R2400 and am very please with it. I haven't had any problems in a year and the print quality is still brilliant, obviously not as good as the 2880. It's also very easy to use, the only thing i do before printing is raise the saturation slightly as the colours may be a bit soft.

    I have an Epson 2400 and had it about 2 1/2 years now. I also still have an Epson 1270 that is about 8 years old and still going good. When I got the 2400 I packed away the 1270, but brought it back out and use it for my basic photo printing. I have had no issues with either one. I am now looking to get a wider format.

    With mail in rebates the R2880 is cheaper from Epson and still cheaper at BuyDig and Amazon than the R2400 is at Amazon or Office Depot.
