Misleading pricing.

Sergio Minero, Amazon

  • Summary: The printer is advertised as $513.94, but then has a shipping charge of $342.63. Ridiculous.

I am HATING this printer right now.

  • Summary: I just got this printer and was SO thrilled to receive it. I couldn't wait to get started! BTW: A little surprised that a USB came with my inexpensive scanner (purchased same day) but one did NOT come with my expensive printer.

POJ

  • Summary: I had an Epson 2200. I loved it. I upgraded to this. I hate it in every way. You have to swap out the ink from matte to glossy if you change paper types. It insists you do. There is no way around it (There was on the 2200). This means that every time I print on a DVD, I have to switch the ink.

Buyer Beware!

Average John, Amazon

  • Summary: I am an artist who creates giclee prints of my paintings, and used an Epson Stylus Photo 2200 for six years. It was a reliable printer which gave me high quality prints. The Epson Stylus Photo 2200 worked great from day one, and I never had to speak with an Epson tech.

Thirsty for Ink

Jat Munda, Amazon
2 June 2009
  • Summary: I bought this printer mainly because of additional feature of the CD/DVD direct printing, as my Epson R2400 does not have this capability. After completion of installation of the software, ink, etc., the printer went into what seemed like an extended cleaning mode.

Same Old Epson

Ranty, Amazon
8 May 2009
  • Summary: Good thing I'm only borrowing this. It's as bad as the other Epsons I've had of late. Cheap build, fussy, gums up all the time, and wastes gallons of ink. Makes fine prints if you are very good with printers, but if your trust fund is running low, you'll want to find something that doesn't guzzle...

Don't buy this printer

Justme, Amazon
7 May 2009
  • Summary: When the 2880 works it makes great photos. It rarely works. The sheet feeder works about 1 in 20 attempts (more often not at all). Once in a while an unplug reboot works to get me one or two prints (before again refusing to feed).

Ugh

Jim U, Amazon
7 May 2009
  • Summary: I bought the R2880 today and it has been a frustrating and disappointing experience. After hooking it up, which didn't seem like too much of a problem, the paper and ink lights won't stop blinking.

2880 wastes a lot of ink

R. Whitney, Amazon
7 May 2009
  • 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.

R2880 A Jam Session

T. Ives, Amazon
7 May 2009
  • 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...
