I have an Epson Stylus Photo 1400, that could print up to A3+, but the paper loading mechanism has been designed by idiots: only one roll placed at the extreme right margin. that means it's good in printing 4" x 6" pictures, but, when printing something bigger than A4, it will skew the sheet: no surprises here, with only one pinch roll placed at the extreme right margin, it's impossible to load a 17" wide sheet without let it skew.

So, since I did not buy this printer to print 4R pictures, I want to get rid of that, and buy an Epson R1900. Unfortunately, no store has this in stock, I have to order it online. Anyone has this printer and can tell me how the pinch roll is made?

When it comes to printing on role paper, the only devices that I've seen do that well are the commercial-grade Epson and Canon (and HP, even) printers. – jrista May 8 '11 at 1:53
I hate printers. – Nick Bedford May 10 '11 at 5:00

I've had an R1900 for about 2 years, and have printed roll paper in both 8.3" and 13" widths, and 13x19 sheets with no problems,
