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

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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I bought the Epson R2880 printer two months ago and have changed cartridges successfully. My replacement cartridges came directly from Epson's on-line store. Yesterday I changed a cartridge and received an error message, "Ink cartridges cannot be recognized".
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...
