A good photo printer

Summary: I have had no problem with the printer and it reproduces colors effectively. I do have two gripes - 1) cartridges are expensive and do not last long and 2) it is a pain to switch out the regular glossy black cartridge with the matte black cartridge.
Summary: I have had this printer for 2 years and has never missed a beat. As long as you put in the correct settings the prints should come out as seen on the screen. Keep a supply of inks on hand as they tend to run out quickly if you print frequently. Changing carts for the matt paper is a bit of a chore but this problem has been improved with a newer model. Great for printing on CD/DVD's.
Summary: I've had this printer for 5 years. It doesn't get heavy usage, but I've printer a lot of pictures up to 13x19. I'm very pleased with the results. I can't imagine getting better images from any other inkjet printer. I've only once changed the black cartridge to use the special black and white printing. When I understood the process, and how much ink is wasted changing it over, I decided the black and white I was getting the regular way was just fine.
Summary: I have tried it for a month now and after I got about even with learning curve, with the help of customer service, I have grown a respect for this printer. The colors are almost perfectly accurate, printing time is very short and color transmission is very smooth.
Summary: I have owned this printer for over four years and never had a single problem. I have had to make prints as large as 12x18 for exhibits of my photos and have made them to bring into the photography classes I take at ICP so I am making a fair number of prints. I consistently get positive feedback on both the B&W and color prints I make. Two complaints. It goes through ink pretty quickly so it best to keep a supply of extra cartridges on hand.
Summary: This is my second Epson Photo printer. My 2200 was the first and is still working after 10 years. The 2880 was easy to set up and printed beautifully right out of the box. I was a bit disappointed in the size of the ink cartridges, but have not printed enough to know how long they will last. They are even smaller than the 2200. I use this to print all my original photography, including scenics and portraits, as well as all my wedding photography.
Summary: The only thing I dislike about this printer is that you have to change the ink when you want to print different things, such as cards vs documents. This is a hassle, and don't like the fact that if you have a little bit of ink left it won't let you put that cartridge in, you have to use a new one.
