Crystal Chen, Amazon

  • Summary: Epson Stylus Photo R2880 Wide-Format Color Inkjet Printer is a excellent printer. My major is graphic design, so I need to do a lot of print works. This machine can totally reach my requirement.

Use It Or Lose It

NY Steve, Amazon
3 August 2013
  • Summary: This is a 5 Star Printer if you use it every week. The prints are great, both color and black and white. There isn't much more you could want. This is not for an unthinking amateur. It is going to work best if you use a good software program, use custom ICCs for paper and select from Epson papers. Color correct your monitor if you want to make sure you get images that look as you see them.

All the hassel of a $50 disposable printer but only for $600

Clerics of the Midwest, Amazon
7 July 2013
  • Summary: I used to be a big fan of Epson, but this printer has thoroughly ruined the brand for me. The print heads clog constantly. It supports 8 color printing but the additional 4 heads just multiply your chance for a head clog. When you do try to clear it you cannot just clear the one head. Epson drains ink for all your cartridges with each head cleaning.

PROBABLY simpler to operate than an AIRBUS A 380

Robert L. Swift "Bob Swift", Amazon
6 December 2011
  • Summary: I've had my R2880 for a year or so (Amazon doesn't remember when it sold it to me, so I guess it was a while back.) I was marveling over the appearance of an 11 x 14 as it emerged from the printer. Started the next print and 3/4 the way through the printer stopped. That part of the print I can see looks great, but what happened? Oh, there's a clue; the ink light is now on! I wish the printer had warned me that I was running low BEFORE it started.

Cost Issues

Amazon Customer "Chi-Squared", Amazon
23 November 2011
  • Summary: Needing a good but "lower" end printer I did some research and settled on this model mostly based on its black and white features. I am generally happy with the decision but after working with it for a few months I have found a few things that make the printer review less than it could be. Cost- I do the majority of photo work in B and W photography and the printer is excellent at printing but is a real ink hog.

2880 wastes a lot of ink

R. Whitney "Ross Whitney", Amazon
28 January 2011
  • Summary: I have used Epson 13X19" color printers for a dozen years. Several years ago I bought the Stylus 2400, which is the predecessor to the 2800 I'm reviewing today. I still have the 2400, and it still works perfectly, but I know it won't last forever. The 2800 makes prints that seem identical to those from the 2400 (which can no longer be obtained from Epson, although the extremely permanent Ultra Chrome inks can). So far, so good.

Professional results at a reasonable price

  • Summary: Excellent choice for users who need the best-quality archival results without the cost of service bureau set-up and reproduction fees or investment in a high end large format printer.
  • Pros: Easy set-up. Excellent, cost-effective results. Artists will be as happy as photographers.
  • Cons: Two compatible papers difficult to find, back-ordered. Instructions limited on advance features. Computer expertise ideal.

Thirsty Printer

Arthur D. Bogard, Amazon
23 August 2010
  • Summary: Once you get the R2880 calibrated, the printer produces excellent color results. With the UltraChrome K3 pigments, you can get long-lasting prints that will impress for years to come. My problem with the R2880 is bang-for-buck. This printer GUZZLES ink like a large SUV. At a cost of $100+ a set of ink carts, this printer becomes expensive fast. It loves to go into cleaning sessions on its own, and it will soak through your inks quickly.

Five stars, at least

Bill Hansen "Bill Hansen", Amazon
28 July 2010
  • Summary: This is a review of the Epson 2880 photo printer, not the 1900. I seriously considered the 1900 but I'm very glad I chose the 2880 instead. This is the sixth Epson photo printer I've owned. They've all been excellent, but this one is the best by a wide margin. I'm extremely fussy about print quality, and the 2880 exceeded my expectations "right out of the box". I had read about that, but I hadn't expected it to be true.

R2880 A Jam Session

T. Ives "TomKat", Amazon
24 April 2010
  • Summary: If you are considering the purchase of an R2880 and are going to print on canvas (My Preference) to print one 13x19 you will need to start with about 3-5 sheets as after it jams each sheet multiple time they are mangled, I wish I never sold my HP B9180 printer it rarely jammed tech support was great and the HP Hannemuhle paper with the supplied ICC profiles were flawless. The print driver in photoshop was also an added benefit with the HP. I am going to go back to HP!
