Summary: Have only had my printer for about 3 weeks, however it is replacing my r1900 which I thought did a great job... This one however would appear to beat it by quite a bit.. I use this to print Photographs that I sell in various locations as well as some portrait photography and have had no complaints to date.
Summary: The R2880 is a great printer and does a very credible job with all types of media. My only complaint is the necessity to change out the photo black with matte black every time a plain paper document needs to be printed. It's time consuming, wastes ink, and it takes several attempts for the printer to recognize the change. Even with that, the printer does an admirable job at a reasonable price-point.
Summary: Hey, when it works it works well, but if you buy this printer you'd better dedicate it to one type of black ink (matte or photo). As others have said, making the printer recognize that you've changed the type of black ink is very, very frustrating and wastes ink. For some reason, it will cease to acknowledge that there IS ink in black ink in the cartridge you've just swapped back into the ink caddy - resulting in massive waste of time and materials.
Summary: I find it many times will pick up two or three sheets of paper at the same time and send them through. Does great black and white. I really like Epson printers, I have three of them, but the ink is very costly.
Summary: The 2880 produces beautiful vivid photos that anyone can be proud of. However too much expensive inks are used especially during replacement of matte for photo black,vice versa and in head cleaning
Summary: I received my printer in the morning and opened the box and set it up in about 30 to 45 minutes. I started using it then and have never turned it off and it gives me excellent prints every time. I get show quality prints each time.
