Summary: Our moving plans caused me to shut down the unit while we sold the house and moved. I followed the directions exactly. After 3 months of downtime, I hooked it up an hour ago. I printed a photo and it came out PERFECTLY on the first try. NOT what I expected. I expected a couple weeks of grief and messing around with plugged ports. This printer has done a great job for me. I was amazed it worked after three months of shutdown.
Summary: Epson Stylus Photo R2880 Wide-Format Color Inkjet Printer is a excellent printer. My major is graphic design, so I need to do a lot of print works. This machine can totally reach my requirement.
Summary: This is a review of the Epson 2880 photo printer, not the 1900. I seriously considered the 1900 but I'm very glad I chose the 2880 instead. This is the sixth Epson photo printer I've owned. They've all been excellent, but this one is the best by a wide margin. I'm extremely fussy about print quality, and the 2880 exceeded my expectations "right out of the box". I had read about that, but I hadn't expected it to be true.
Summary: I was eager to see how the Epson Stylus Photo R2880 compared to my trusty old Epson Stylus Photo R800 Inkjet Printer which is still a great printer and was Epson's first true photo-quality printer. The first thing that I noticed was the R2880's size and design. When the doors are opened up for printing, the printer takes up considerable real estate, but when closed up it really doesn't seem that big.
Summary: First of all I hate it when people get bad delivery from a company and then mark the printer down. This is a printer review, not a delivery review or a company review just a review for the Epson 2880 that I own. I'm a photographer and the quality of the print is the only thing that matters to me. I get perfect prints every time. The machine runs perfectly.
Summary: Re: Epson Stylus Photo R2880 Printer. The Epson Stylus Photo R2880 printer is a sweet machine. From start up to printing the "quick start" guide was clear and concise with a step by step approach that did not leave this novice confused. Frankly, what has kept me from printing photos in the past has been a fear of technical language beyond my vocabulary. But the instructions given here left nothing to chance or misunderstanding.
Summary: This is the first time I have ever felt compelled to write a review and post it online. I just received my Epson R2880 and I cannot say enough good things about it. The set up was a breeze! I followed the directions in the quick start guide, installed the drivers from the CD enclosed with the printer and went to Epson's site to get the latest ICC profiles. Within thirty minutes I had my first print in hand. WOW! Simply outstanding!
Summary: I've used Epson printers for printing photos for several years and have been extremely pleased with the quality of color prints that come from the Epson machines. The main question I had in using the 2880 was whether the machine would be better than my Epson 2400 photo printer. I use the current versions of Lightroom or Photoshop for my printing, and I've found that if your monitor is of good quality and properly calibrated, the photos that the Epson printers produce are...
Summary: Received this printer from my employer as a "thank you gift." Unlike others reviewing the R2880, I have had no issues with the printer, and was making great prints immediately after unpacking and easy set-up. Ink usage at the highest quality setting seems normal (others have called it an ink hog, but I'm just not experiencing that). Looks like a few have had a bad experience, but not me. Maybe some quality control issues have been addressed?
Summary: I bought the Epson R2880 inkjet printer about three months ago and I've printed on several types of top quality Epson paper and on Epson canvas almost every day. The R2880 has performed magnificiently. I sell my photos at Art Fairs. The vibrance is superb in color; black and white is very impressive. You have to change the main black cartridge from photo black to matte black depending on the paper you are using.
