AuthorSubject: Epson R800 uneven ink usage   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Richard Southworth
Posted on Mon May 24, 2004 4:43 PM

I've owned an Epson R800 for about a week or so, have run about 20 8x10 prints, including normal photographs and Profilemaker 4 printer test targets. In general, I'm very satisifed with the results.

However, after this initial period, I notice very uneven ink usage. Specifically, the cyan and magenta have decreased approx. 25% (quarter down on the ink usage display), the yellow approx. 15%, and little or no usage on photo black, matte black, red and blue. Yes, I've printed on both glossy and matte material. There may be a pixel gap at the top of the bar charts, but that's all.

I've printed only using profiles, all color adjustment turned off, latest Windows print driver. I'm wondering if printing in this mode is somehow turning my printer into a CMY only kind of machine. The color quality is good, and the gamuts (using Chromix Colorthink) for various papers read close to those for the Epson 2200.

Maybe it's just a matter of time and usage, but I would have expected more decrease in the blacks and red and blue volume as compared to the cyan/magenta/yellow. Anybody have similar or very different experience?
