    Strength:

    Brilliant, realistic colors on photos and greeting cards.
    A very versatile print driver which allows for ink level monitoring and printer maintenance.

    Weakness:

    Ink cartridges don't last very long and refills are expensive.

    The R300 is hard to beat if you are in to printing photos or printing your own custom greeting cards as I do. It produces brilliant, realistic images beyond what you might expect in that price range. I also love the feedback you get from the Epson R300 print driver, such as ink level monitoring.

    Strength:

    Great pictures Low price Excellent print driver - shows ink levels! Epson has wider availability of pro inks and papers than Canon Prints CD's

    Weakness:

    Documentation is inadequate.

    This review is for the Epson R200 which has the same print engine as the R300. Frankly, if you don't need all the bells and whistles, this is the printer to get. Its got Epson's highest resolution engine (at the moment), six ink capacity (dye inks), and a bargain price! Picture quality? Once you figure it out its excellent. I don't use any of the auto enhancement features but instead run all of my images through Jasc Paint Shop v8. I manually adjust the images first till they look right on the screen. THE important setting on the printer driver is Color Mode. Use Epson Standard Mode if you clean up the image yourself before printing. Use Epson Vivid if you want the printer to enhance the image. So far I've used Epson Matte Heavyweight, Epson Colorlife, and Epson Premium Glossy. Click the proper paper in the print driver and you get great results. Another advantage of Epson over Canon is a wide paper choice at a reasonable price. Uou really do want to stick to your manufacturers papers unless you know what you're doing. All three of the papers I mentioned can be found for good prices on the web and have very long image permanence for a dye based system. I prefer the added life of the dye based prints over pigment. These papers give you comparable life to a photographic color print.
