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.
Pros: Stunning color & grayscale printing, Large paper sizes supported, Very fast printing, Many individual ink colors
Summary: Last year we reviewed the 3800, Epson’s A2 printer, and it produced stunning results. We also liked the R2400 printer, but was never 100% happy with the construction of the printer – parts felt flimsy and never inspired confidence for professional work.
Pros: The compact printer design – when closed it takes up very little desk space. Print colours are exceptionally good and vibrant. The new printer interface and Photoshop Print plug-in. Black and White printing.
Cons: The small ink cartridges (11ml). Purging Black inks when swapping media types (Glossy to Matte and vice versa). PictBridge on an A3+ printer, not something a serious photographer would use. Roll media on an A3 printer.
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
