We have the R200 and the options are draft, Text, Text with Image, Photo and
Best Photo.

This is with the printer software provided by Epson. we have other software
that uses the printer that does not have those options.

Thank you very much. I´┐Żll find out wether identical banding patterns can be
reproduced on 2 consecutive printouts using identical settings.
If so settings may matter.
Otherwise the print head mechanism or paper feed may cause the banding.
Will be back with my results.

Selecting "einfach" (simple, easy) lets you chose between the choices mentioned
above.
In addition you still have the choice of different paper qualities.

I don't have a copy of the R200 driver in front of me, but some Epson
drivers allow you to go into an advanced mode and open another window
with more technical options.
