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.

Don't buy this one--buy a newer Epson with the same print technology and an improved paper feed.

J. G. Heiser, Amazon
8 May 2009
  • 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.

Great images. Poor manufacturing quality.

Ben M., Amazon
7 May 2009
  • Summary: Spectacular images. Other than that, everything about it is irritating. We have had it repaired twice, at $150 a pop. Switching black ink cartridges (matte vs. photo) is a constant pain. The thing burns through ink like crazy. Paper feed doesn't work very well. Build quality is poor.

A Waste of Money

Henchard, Amazon
7 May 2009
  • Summary: I've returned to photography after a long hiatus and haven't been following developments in printer technology. Reading several good reviews about this model, I bought one. Simply put, the claims about print quality far exceed reality. The R2880 may be o.k.

Quality good reliability awful

metalcamera, Amazon
7 May 2009
  • Summary: Have had this since it came out. Delivers excellent prints on all types of paper, including heavy art papers. However, for me, I spend 95% of my time dealing with paper errors ink levels regardless of the paper. Uses a lot of ink. It is unreliable, and seems to be getting worse.

A Tale of Two Printers

benrush, Amazon
7 May 2009
  • Summary: This is one of the best and one of the worst printers I've ever owned. In terms of print quality, it's hard to find a better printer in this price range. Great color, accuracy, range. The dry time is speedy and the final product is durable and long-lasting.

Epson Quality Control Seems to be Nonexistent!

Phyllis A. Kedl, Amazon
7 May 2009
  • 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...

The most frustrating printer I've ever used

G. Jackson, Amazon
17 April 2012
  • 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).

EPSON R2880 printer

M. J. Cain, Amazon
12 March 2010
  • 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 .. ?
