good but high maintenance
Product Rating:
It makes great Epson prints, when the paper feeds. It often won't feed paper.
Pros: It still has a resale value
Cons: The rollers are high maintenance.

As good as it gets
Product Rating:
I rated it 5 just to offset what others are saying. I have never had a paper jam or any other problem with the R2400. I do mostly 13 by 19 sheets. It does a beautiful job, but you have to know how to print. I suspect that may be the problem with people who want a consumer printer they don't have to learn. If ou don't calibrate your monitor or use the proper paper profile, or know how to fill out the pre-print menu choices, you'll think it can't do it. You might even have to read the book, but I took a class. Not that complicated.
Pros: Beautiful colors. Matches what I see on my calibrated computer screen. Good enough for art exhibition prints.
Cons: The ink is very expensive, and there are lots of colors to pay for. ($11 to $14 a cartridge, depending on whether you pay retail or buy over the internet at Atlex.

Gets the job done.
Product Rating:
If you on average print 8x10's this is a good printer. But I did find it to jam frequently. And because of the way that it loads paper sometimes the paper does curl, but there is a inconvenient back loader if necessary.
Pros: Good small printer.
Cons: Paper Jams. Drop Loading.

If you’re on a budget but still want a professional printer that’s wide enough to generate wallpaper, the Epson Stylus Photo R2400 is your best bet. Not officially a professional model, the R2400 offers pro features and speed, able to print a full 11 x 14-inch print in less than two minutes. It’s based on the same Ultrachrome K3 inkset as the Epson 3800 but prints only up to 13 inches wide. At less than $900, the R2400 has found its way into a variety of studios, serving as both a quick contact sheet printer and a main machine for small-sized prints. It’s a cost-efficient option for the photographer who wants to create great-looking images but doesn’t want to invest in a printer that will turn out wall-hanging-sized output.

Retail price: $850
