Summary: Nice printing but, the printer broke down immediately within a week after the warranty ended. Repair = $265 PLUS they required all new ink cartridges at $264 ... And almost 2 month in the shop!!! Not worth it.
Summary: I got the Epson R3000 last year. The prints are good when the printer works. Unfortunately, it doesn't work much of the time. In additon, the ink cartridges are very expensive and do not last long. Don't buy this printer.
Summary: transaction & shipping went well.. there were some problems with the Printer after recieving it, but I am satisfied with the Final outcome after getting the problems resolved. I would BUY again from this Seller.
Summary: Back in the old days of OS 9 for Mac, I used this printer to make posters and get somewhat accurate color proofs for 4 color commercial printing. I could get some really nice photo printouts with the gloss paper but in time the ink fades so you're better off sending your digital photos to a lab to be printed. I've had many problems with the automatic paper feed. I just gave up and manually put in one page at a time every time I wanted to print.
Summary: I agree with the conclusion most of the other reviewers have reached -- this machine is an expensive dud. It started out working okay, but for no apparent reason I started to get the paper misfeeding problem, and the lines of gobbledygook, which wastes a lot of expensive paper. The Stylus RIP is mind-numbingly slow, despite maxing out my RAM and upgrading the computer's processor.
Summary: I'm on my second one of these. First was prone to a lot of paper misfeeds. I had hoped that was an anomaly when I bought the second one. Not so. It does the same thing. A real annoyance...I have to go over to the printer and baby through each print. I've tried the Epson cleaner sheets, too. They don't work. Avoid this printer. PS - You will also need to buy a 3rd party Postscript RIP if you use Mac.
Summary: This printer is the absolute best available for one thing: printing continuous feed logs with tractor feed paper. In fact, the only two decent printers for doing inkjet printing on continuous feed paper are the Epson Stylus Color 1520 and 3000. They both work with external Jet Direct for networking. Many "log printing" programs such as Lexco Lexview, Seelog Viewer, Atlas Metafile Viewer, and PDS Viewer, require either Epson or HP.
Summary: I am a graphic designer, and require excellent quality in color printing. The Epson 3000 is very easy to color balance, and produces outstanding results with premium glossy paper. Color photographs printed on the Epson 3000 are realistic and accurate. This printer is easy to use and is very cost efficient. The INK cartidges are easy to refill, and have saved me thousands of dollars in INK. This printer will treat you good, if you treat it good.
Summary: This printer is terrible. I am a graphic designer. I've had the printer for about 3 years. I have hated it since I got it. Hate isn't the word... Abhor, is more like it. It's big, SLOW, clunky, jams, misfeeds, print quality is poor, impossible to service, if you require a RIP software, the printer isn't compatible with XP, ME or 2000. To those of you who gave it a good review: Check your head... I don't know what you are using it for.
Summary: This is quite possibly the worst printer ever made in all printer history. The color is horrible, it jams the paper every other print, slow as mollasses, impossible to service, and just generally looks bad. The roller-arms are spaced so that they never take its own specially priced paper straight into the feeder. Ink Cleanings usually last for two prints on most minimal print settings, then degrade into splotchy lined garbage.
