Summary: Great printer for high resolution color and B&W. Very rich colors and deep blacks. I print on Epson Ultra Premium Luster and Velvet Fine Art paper with excellent results. The normal rear feed tray works well with any size from 4X6 to 13X19; however with Velvet Fine Art you need to use the single sheet feeder in the rear and for thicker paper like Hahnemuhle fine art (museum etching) you must use the front feeder.
Summary: I gave an average rating based on the need to swap out black ink carts for glossy and matte printing. Had I known this prior to my purchase, I would have chosen a different model. Shame on me for not doing my research first.
Summary: This printer has been an excellent printer, when printing test strings or images that take up less than 2/3 of the paper they're printed on. The same problem arises no matter what size or what print quality options are selected when printing full page, though - the print head seems to begin rubbing back off the bottom portion of the print.
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. Color correct your monitor if you want to make sure you get images that look as you see them.
Summary: I have used this printer for a year now, so I know it quite well. It makes beautiful prints on a variety of medium. I also like being able to print on a roll of canvas or photo paper, and having the option of matte or glossy paper.
Summary: This is a good printer and seems to be working a long time without repairs, but I dislike the need to change from matte black to photo black each time I want to change paper type. It is a big pain and wastes a great deal of ink. I don't understand why, after the beauty of the R1900, Epson would go back to that kind of primitive ink design. And while I am at it: let me comment on a more general problem with Epson printers.
Summary: While it is true that the quality of the photos is very good, the fact that you have to change cartridges to print photos is highly annoying. The other even more irritating aspect of this printer is that it is painfully slow when printing a document. I previously had an R800 which was extremely fast printing documents but not quite as good printing photos. Still, I prefer the R800 overall. If you are more Zen than I am, perhaps you will like the R2880.
Summary: This printer makes beautiful prints - from Photoshop or Lightroom, when it feels like it. Sometimes it is fine, and sometimes it does not want to feed the paper through. It either pushes it all the way through without printing, or won't feed the paper at all. If I plug it and unplug it, press all the buttons, move the paper around, all of a sudden it will print.
