Summary: This is a 5 Star Printer if you use it every week. The prints are great, both color and black and white. There isn't much more you could want. This is not for an unthinking amateur. It is going to work best if you use a good software program, use custom ICCs for paper and select from Epson papers.
Summary: Once you get the R2880 calibrated, the printer produces excellent color results. With the UltraChrome K3 pigments, you can get long-lasting prints that will impress for years to come. My problem with the R2880 is bang-for-buck. This printer GUZZLES ink like a large SUV.
Summary: Features: 1. Make prints up to 13 x 44 inches (via paper roll) 2. Resolution of 5760 x 1440 dpi 3. Droplets as small as 3 picoliters 4. Use various media from plain, photo, presentation and fiber paper to fine art papers and boards as thick as 1.3mm 5. Print directly to a supported CD/DVD 6.
Summary: In my opinion, a large format printer is mostly for the large-format printing photographer who doesn't contract out for printing services. With all the printing services available, its hard to justify the cost of this printer. However, it can produce stunning photos of large sizes.
Summary: I purchased my R2880 printer in September 2008 and should have known better than to purchase another Epson printer. Everybody should take note that after you have had the printer for more than 30 days, if a fault develops, they will only replace it with a reconditioned substitute.
Summary: I'm afraid this will be brief, but to the point. If you want incredible print quality for photos on gloss, satin, matt or HQ inkjet paper then look no further. Printing black and white is a dream. True b&w with the light black, light light black, and either the gloss black or matt black cartridge.
Summary: Good news: superb results; use Epson paper or Permajet with Permajet custom ICC profiles and you won't be disappointed. Bad news: the printer uses 9 ink cartridges and only has 8 slots so every time you swap between matt and gloss you have to manually change a cartridge, losing expensive ink in the...
Summary: Could not obtain a good print .was getting a mark on all prints .I think from one of the drive rollers.It cost me a full set of ink cartridges and 10 sheets of A3 paper to get Epson to exchange .Epson sent me one black cartridge for my troubles .Epson sent me a new printer .New printer working ok
Summary: I bought my Epson Stylus R2880 A3 photo printer 3 years ago to replace a much loved and well used 9 year old Epson Stylus 1290, which never went wrong and always produced beautiful, flawless, high quality images, thinking I would have the same or better results from a similar updated product.
