Reviews and Problems with Epson Stylus Photo R2880
Showing 1-10 of 12
Don't buy this one--buy a newer Epson with the same print technology and an improved paper feed.

Summary: This printer makes absolutely beautiful prints, especially on matte finish fine art paper. But the rear feeding mechanism that you need to use for these higher quality papers is fatally flawed.
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.
Summary: I bought the Epson R2880 printer a week ago, and am already waiting for my second replacement for the original! The first one printed one print beautifully, but the next time we turned it on it went berserk -- whining, thrashing parts back and forth, and generally acting as if it had lost its mind...
Summary: Tried Epson web site for driver - used specific one aimed for this model printer and pah ! wouldn't work, having owned its bigger brother E3550 for 4 years this model is definitly the younger small brother.
Poor reliability, quality prints when working but at a high cost
8 August 2009
Summary: Poor reliability and cannot be relied upon to perform when necessary. Produces high quality prints at a high cost for printer and inks. First one I had failed due to paper feed problems within warranty. Second failure occurred on a new replacement within 6 months on the ink supply due to a sensor.
Summary: I've had one of these for about 6 months now and have tried all sorts of prints. If you are doing standard, sheet feed stuff it's great provided you use Epson's Easy Photo Print software otherwise the colours are so dark as to waste paper (there are a lot of comments like this on the web).
Summary: A lovely made machine which feels and handles great, the installation is really straight forward and the software is a breeze to install. The R2880 is really quiet in operation and the print speed is ok, how quick do you need it really .. ?
Summary: A goodish printer on the whole. A bit noisy and takes an age to set itself up from cold. Clanks and bangs for ages, whilst setting up to print. Biggest problem is with the inks. I changed from a Canon printer to this, as I was told that it was a far superior machine....rubbish.
Summary: Esta impresora es buena pero my exigente. Tienes que traarla como a una reina porque si la dejas unos dias sin hacerle caso...entras en un ciclo de limpiezas de inyectores (se atascan en cuanto no imprimes tres o cuatro dias) y gastas mas tinta que la rotativa de El Pais. Y a 12 € x 9 cartuchos..
Pros: Calidad de impresión, gran formato .
Cons: Cara, mantenimiento continuo o gasto de tinta insostenible .
