Reviews and Problems with Epson Stylus Photo R2880
Showing 1-10 of 48
Excellent, High Quality Printer
2 June 2009
Summary: As a previous owner of an Epson R1800, I expected nothing short of extraordinary with the R2880. The R1800 met every need I had and produced quality prints with absolutely no hassles. Does the R2880 live up to the same standard?
Summary: I have been a professional photographer for little over a year now. My first experience into the world of inkjet printing involved the Epson 2200. It was an overall good experience but it left me always wanting more out of the quality of my black and whites and the efficiency of my printing.
Summary: I've been something of a Canon devotee for the past six years or so, and haven't really considered an Epson printer since the Stylus 740. This printer has made me re-think my loyalties. Right off the bat, the print quality and speed are incredible.
Summary: We received the printer in good order. When it was time to print the trouble started. I bought Epson brand paper with the printer. I put the paper in the single paper feed slot and it wouldn't work. I called Technical Support not 15 minutes after I opened the box.
Summary: Needing a good but "lower" end printer I did some research and settled on this model mostly based on its black and white features. I am generally happy with the decision but after working with it for a few months I have found a few things that make the printer review less than it could be.
Summary: If you think your images look good on a nice screen, wait until you print them using a decent printer like this (and good paper). Printing can be frustrating at times. I bought the printing program Qimage and it seems to work very well with the 2880. Definitely worth it.
Summary: I have had this printer for almost two years, and have used it often - have replaced the ink cartridges at least ten times. This is not because the printer spills ink, but because I print photographs, often on Epson's Ultra Premium Presentation Mattte paper, at the highest resolution.
Summary: [[ASIN:B001A11KA2 Epson Stylus Photo R2880 Wide-Format Color Inkjet Printer (C11CA16201)] This is a great printer. I have used it to print 5X7 up to 11X16 prints that I sell commercially and they came out beautifully.
Summary: ink jets have always been a cash cow for printer companies they often seem specifically designed to waste high priced ink cartridges this kind of engineering we do not need, but is what we get here, big time early in the era, about twenty years ago, third party companies would refill ink cartridges...
