R2880 leaves a lot to be desired

Redsnapper, Epson
25 February 2014
  • Summary: Hey, when it works it works well, but if you buy this printer you'd better dedicate it to one type of black ink (matte or photo). As others have said, making the printer recognize that you've changed the type of black ink is very, very frustrating and wastes ink. For some reason, it will cease to acknowledge that there IS ink in black ink in the cartridge you've just swapped back into the ink caddy - resulting in massive waste of time and materials.

Disappointing

LadyLove, Epson

  • Summary: Infortunately, I have had lots of problems with this printer. Paper jams, double images, and, considering how many ink cartriges one needs, the inks are rather expensive and can only be ordered through Epson. When it does work well, the prints are giclee quality ... but one never knows when and if it will work properly.

"Don't buy it if you print unusual sizes/papers

Cyn, Epson
6 September 2013
  • Summary: I've had this thing for a year and a half now, and it is so frustrating that I have used every cuss word in my dictionary, and am starting to make up new ones! The interface with Photoshop is lousy. You'd think that if I made an 8x12 print (which isn't even one of their options, so I have to type it in the custom size box), that the second time I go to print the same photo it would give me that size. But no, I have to jump thru hoops and start all over.

Epson Stylus Photo R2880

Pete, Epson
1 August 2013
  • Summary: Very dissapointed with this printer. Difficult to use when you have to change ink cartridge to print on less than photo paper. Have to change empty ink cartridges one at a time and go through the charging process for each one separately. The out put is not as good as my old Stylus Photo 1400. I will replace this printer as soon as I can.

Awful to work with but can produce good results

agilecoyote, Epson
29 March 2013
  • Summary: I have suffered with this machine for far too long. It is incredibly finicky when used with inDesign, produces misleading error messages and takes ages to settle down after changing a cartridge. Generally I dread a print session with it.

2880 Printer

Rod, Epson
23 December 2012
  • Summary: Visually the printer is of middle quality corresponding to its middle price -- not the level of Epson's profession printers. The roll paper is an advantage for the price and functions more or less ok. As per generally functionality, it is reasonable when new, but if you do not use it regularly, it can be a really drag trying to get it functioning again -- not an uncommon problem with color printers but I find one that can be particularly problematic with Epsons.

early troubles right out of the box

stevenswild, Epson
12 February 2012
  • Summary: my first prints seem to be of higher quality, though, like most of the poor reviews posted here, i'm having the same issues regarding the printer/computer recognizing the switch from photo black and matte black. i've went through nearly half of each color cartrige trying to figure out this (which should be) a simple cartridge swap procedure. nonetheless, i'm not all that inspired at this point due to the costs that i future foresee in the ink costs.

Prints nice but I'm not impressed

DJTX22, Epson
14 October 2011
  • Summary: This printer does print some very nice photos but I am not at all impressed with all of the other maneuvers you have to go through to get it to print when you have to change from photo black to matte black ink. When you change from photo black ink to matte ink or vice-versa it doesn't always recognize the cartridge change half of the time. You have to keep restarting the printer or removing and reinstalling the cartridge.

"Beware, beware, beware."

joefromla, CNET

  • Pros: Beautiful output.
  • Cons: I have just spent most of a day on the phone with Epson. The printer I have will not print a full borderless 19x17. So far the suggestions have been: I estimate it has cost 6 hours and approximately $100 in ink. BEWARE this printer!
