Reliable Print Engine
The Epson R1900 is designed to be a reliable workhorse printer - even in a high-volume role. The print heads are treated with a special ink-repellent coating to ensure accurate dot placement and minimize nozzle clogging. A mist-collection system is in place to absorb ink overspray, keeping the inside of the printer clean and reducing jamming. Even the cartridges have been designed to maintain optimum printer performance with special glass beads inside to keep the ink agitated and prevent clotting which can shorten the cartridge life and lead to clogs in the ink delivery system.
Precise Color Manufacturing
Each R1900 is subjected to colorimetric calibration during the manufacturing process so users are assured of consistent color output from printer to printer. This unique quality-assurance feature eliminates the need to calibrate between printers for larger printing facilities that may be using more than one printer.
The R1900 includes two USB ports, so users can quickly connect a laptop to the printer while it is still connected to another PC, and the printer includes a PictBridge port so users can directly connect a digital camera or photo viewer to the printer and print without the need for a computer.
