Epson Stylus Photo R2880
30 June 2010
Excerpt: The Epson Stylus Photo R2880 is a new professional photo printer on the market from the printer giant, Epson. It prints professional quality photo prints at a size up to 13 x 19-inches or even on a roll. While the price tag may seem expensive to the average consumer, to the professional or even the amateur photographer, it's well-worth the money.
Pros: Stunning color & grayscale printing, Large paper sizes supported, Very fast printing, Many individual ink colors
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 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)
Excerpt: Although externally identical to the Stylus Photo R1900, the Stylus Photo R2880 isn't quite the same inside. Epson has tweaked the print engine to make it even better-suited to photo printing. The difference lies in its inks. The R2880 uses eight different colours: photo black, light black, light light black, cyan, light cyan, vivid magenta, vivid light magenta and yellow.
Excerpt: Back in 2005 Epson brought out a solid 13x19 inch printer using its new UltraChrome K3 inkset. This model, the Stylus Photo R2400, was a major improvement over the 2200/2100 it replaced, thanks to additional grey inks and a new Advanced Black & White mode in the printer driver. Three years is nearly forever in the digital market though, and we've all been wondering when a replacement would come, and what features it might have.
