Summary: The R2880 is a great printer and does a very credible job with all types of media. My only complaint is the necessity to change out the photo black with matte black every time a plain paper document needs to be printed. It's time consuming, wastes ink, and it takes several attempts for the printer to recognize the change. Even with that, the printer does an admirable job at a reasonable price-point.
Summary: The 2880 produces beautiful vivid photos that anyone can be proud of. However too much expensive inks are used especially during replacement of matte for photo black,vice versa and in head cleaning
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.
