Epson Stylus Photo R1800
Despite the cool HP photo printer TV commercials (the ones that show photos morphing into people morphing into photos), the printers really suck. The one we currently own has never printed a full frame photo, no matter how hard we try. That means I have often resorted to useing printing services— even thought the printer was supposed to end that.
The Epson R1800, however, prints borderless photos as large as 13" x 19" with fade-resistance inks. The $500 price tag ($469 at Amazon.com) would surely pay for itself quickly, if only because of the lag of sweat and agitation it would bring.
