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.
love the 2880 printer, but hate having to replace ink often
26 March 2013
Summary: I love the 2880, but have three issues: 1. it seems like the ink only prints a few photos and gets quite expensive 2. the black ink matte has to be removed to use the other black ink cartridge which makes it even more expensive if I have to remove. So why not have a black ink for each? 3.
Summary: The Epson Stylus Photo R2880 creates beautiful prints. The only problem I found was the requirement to constantly switch the black ink cartridge depending on whether you are printing text or photos. You don't have to but you must otherwise reconfigure the printer settings.
Summary: The Epson 2880 is a very good printer. I have never had any quibbles about its print quality. It will print images that are equal to Epson's 3880, which is the bottom of Epson's professional line. I own both printers so I know what each one is capable of doing. However, the 2880 has two flaws.
Summary: Granted this is the only photo printer I've used. However, I am OCD and did a ton of research as to which one to buy. I only give it four stars because the matte/gloss ink cartridges that have to be switched out.
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: 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.
Fantastic printer with minor paper alignment issues

Summary: Fantastic quality for my demanding needs as a graphic designer and artist. I could not be happier with the print quality. The only issue with the 2880 is the same that plagued the 2200 it replaced.
UBELIEVABLE quality, confusing, sucks ink like crazy, ICC profiles stink

Summary: Long story short, the quality of this printer is simply stunning. (Am giving it four stars because the quality is literally amazing.) However, I wanted to use Moab canvas, and found out later the ICC profiles were not available for the R1900.
Summary: Just made my first few prints with the Epson 2880 - the sharpness and color saturation is quite amazing. I have been printing with Epson printers for better than twelve years and this printer is the fastest, sharpest and richest color printer I have seen.
