You are right, was referring to the L8050, which is the A4 variant of the L18050.
I think the L1800 has been replaced by the L18050, I no longer see it in stock anywhere locally.
I seem to recall the L1800 had some problem which is why I did not buy it at the time, I think it did badly in your...
The interesting printers are the Epson ET-8550, L18050 and L18100. They cost more than the G550 but are A3 capable like the Canon pro-200, and the inks are cheap like the G550
Theres the Epson ET-8500 and L8050 which are A4 capable, these are the most similar to the G550 but when it comes to...

My L10850 did NOT come with any paper unfortunately.
I have purchased a fair bit of epson paper - "Epson Glossy Photo Paper", "Epson Premium Glossy", and "Epson Premium Semigloss" fairly cheaply.
So far I have tested the "Epson Premium Glossy" and "Epson Glossy Photo Paper" and they both work...
I had a problem with the CAP480 chart,
With the ES-2000 (aka i1Publish Pro 2), the chart is too big to scan...
It seems that the spectro needs to start on a white part of the paper, but when using the ruler from the ES-2000 it is not possible to start on a white section of the paper while also...
Ok, I get the general idea
Using a 10x triplet loupe, I pixel peeped two images, the first with epson premium glossy paper "High" quality and the same print on HP paper with +15 brightness color correction dialed in to get the brightness more similar (its still darker) to the Epson print
How can I tell if "ink limits are exceeded"?
If I do not see pooling does this mean that the ink limits are NOT exceeded?
I have found settings where no pooling can be seen, even in completely black / dark regions, and this is with 100% ink density
I have a very large amount of paper to try...
I have a stack of what is apparently swellable HP paper in a dry cabinet set at 40% relative humidity... I think the idea is that the paper works best when as much water is drawn out of the paper as possible?
What relative humidity should other non-swellable paper be stored at? would 40% cause...
After tweaking the print settings to slow down the printer, I could fix the ink pooling issue. The prints look good enough to me, but the contrast seems too high when using 100% ink density. 80% seems very slightly faded
That said I got myself a Specto (ES-2000) what do I do now? 😂
In addition to the HP logo there is also a barcode and arrow on the back of the paper... its pretty obvious what is the back side tbh.
The ink is dry to the touch immediately after printing, but an hour after printing the ink will come off with a damp cloth.
24hrs after printing, the prints...
The Extended Settings menu looks exactly the same on the L18050 as your screenshot above
Do you know what’s the difference between changing “Print Density” on the extended settings menu, and “Density” on the color correction menu?
I am hoping "fast dry" does not mean "never dry".
For what its worth, I set brightness to +20 in the "Color Correction" menu and the print looks ok. From the looks of it maybe +25 would be fine too.
@Ink stained Fingers , When you make your profiles, how do you decide on a print density setting?
