Epson’s Stylus Photo R2880; The New 13” Flagship Printer In The Epson Line-Up
1 November 2001
Excerpt: Three years ago, Epson brought out a solid 13x19” printer using the new UltraChrome K3 inks. This model, the R2400, was a major improvement over the 2200 it replaced, thanks to the additional gray inks and a new Advanced Black and White mode in the printer driver. Three years is nearly forever in the digital market, and people have been wondering when a replacement would come and what features it might have.
Summary: The Epson Stylus Photo R2880 has emerged as the new standard for high quality photo reproduction. With a relatively low initial price point and decent consumable efficiency, the R2880 is a must-have for any semi-professional photographer looking to print their own photos at home.
Pros: Fantastic photo printing, great build quality, A3+ media capability
Excerpt: The Epson Stylus Photo R2880 also has a clear edge in speed. Our test print of colour patches was output in a little over 80 seconds on the R2880 - that's half the time that some similar printers take to output the same file on the same settings on the same paper.
Excerpt: The Stylus Photo R2880 is the latest A3+ printer from Epson. At $1699 it’s hardly a cheap shout, but it does deliver Epson’s ultimate photographic quality eight-colour inkset and all of the latest innovations from a company that ” according to its own research ” is favoured by more than 70 per cent of New Zealand’s professional photographers. If nothing less than state of the art will do, then the subject of this review may be just what you’re after.
Pros: Stunning quality prints, Long print life, Stylish design and build quality, Comprehensive software bundle, Twin USB ports
Cons: Need to change out black cartridges, Other Epson A3+ printer options: Epson Stylus Photo 1410 A3+ $799 (Uses Epson Claria inkset), Epson Stylus Photo R1900 A3+ $1299 (Uses Epson UltraChrome Hi-Gloss2 inkset)
