Epson Stylus Photo R3000 Pigment Inkjet Printer Review

Digital Photography School
26 September 2011
  • Excerpt: I’ve owned an Epson 1290 A3 printer for some years now and have loved it like a brother! The 1290 weighs 8.4 kgs with overall dimensions of 609x414x766mm (WHD). Colour: basic beige. The R3000 is quite a different beast: heavy as lead at 15kg and measuring 616x228x369mm, it’s styled in black. Not my favourite colour for office gear … the onboard controls are frequently hard to read.

  • Conclusion: The R3000 has many features without too many bells and whistles. The quality of printing is first class, I calibrate my monitor before any printer review so I am confident that it is displaying accurate colours, however I still had to to lighten up the files with an adjustment layer before printing. Once tweaked the files printed out beautifully, both colour and B/W. The printer construction is excellent and should withstand moderate to heavy use.
  • Pros: Superb print quality, Print speed, Large capacity ink cartridges, Compact size, Excellent LCD screen, Build quality
  • Cons: Price, Straight paper path is a clumsy operation

  • Conclusion: This printer is not cheap, pricing itself at just under £700, however if you have need for a professional quality, quick printer the Espon Stylus Photo R3000 is the best we have reviewed. If you make money selling photographic prints in any way, or just want to be able to print studio quality at home, we wholeheartedly recommend the R3000.
  • Pros: We really love this printer. The prints are some of the best we have seen from any digital printer. Colours are rich and accurate to the original photo, and the finish is second to none. Only when using a loupe can you tell the difference between the prints from the R3000 and a traditional dark room print. With professional printers, you usually have to sacrifice usability for features, but not so with the R3000. A 2.5 inch LCD screen informs you of all workings of yo...
  • Cons: There is very little to physically fault the R3000 with. However it is not perfect. The printer uses high capacity ink cartridges, which do allow for more cost effective printing, but don’t expect refilling this printer to be cheap. Single inks cost somewhere in the region of £25 and there are 9 of them! That said, if you are professional photographer selling prints to clients or via public showing, this cost can be recouped easily.

CNET
15 August 2011
  • Summary: The larger-capacity ink cartridges haven't reduced print costs by much and the print engine could be a tad faster, but the Epson R3000 produces excellent results on both colour and monochrome prints, delivering images with rich contrast and beautifully natural colours.
  • Cons: Larger capacity ink cartridges don't bring huge savings; Print speeds are a tad sluggish.

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: Gorgeous output at fast speed makes the Epson Stylus Photo R3000 of interest to both serious amateurs and professional photographers and graphic artists.
  • Pros: Fast. Impressively high-quality photos and graphics. Prints on cut sheets up to 13 by 19 inches. Fine art papers available.
  • Cons: Lack of a rated duty cycle makes it unclear how much you can print per month without shortening the printers' useful life.

Epson Stylus Photo R3000: An Affordable, High-Quality Inkjet Printer

Shutterbug
1 February 2007
  • Excerpt: There are those who make prints often, and there are those who make prints occasionally. The split, you might think, is between amateur and pro, but that’s not always the case. Some “amateurs” print as much if not more than some pros, and some pros make their own prints only when they have time, usually for their personal portfolio, but certainly not on every job. That’s why pigeonholing the Epson R3000 in terms of intended audience, amateur or pro, is not so easy.

Epson Stylus Photo R3000 Printer Review

ePHOTOzine
20 May 2011
  • Excerpt: The Epson Stylus Photo R3000 is a desktop A3+ printer aimed at anyone who wants to make professional quality prints. The R3000 has 9 inkjet cartridges with an increased 25.9ml capacity compared to the previous model, the
  • Pros: This printer is capable of stunning output and on the B&W output alone I would be tempted to buy it as a replacement for my existing machine when it finally fails., Printing is very quiet and if using the normal photo-papers very fast., Gloss prints are very good for a pigment printer, excellent on the Cold Press Bright and stunning on the Traditional Photo paper., The larger capacity ink cartridges should help reduce cost per print but see below. (they are cheaper th...
  • Cons: Head strikes and tramlines when using Traditional Photo Paper with borderless prints are unacceptable, Ink consumption during black cartridge swap seems very high (but I believe in line with earlier Epson A3+ printers, so would probably not be a concern for existing Epson users)., I have some concerns about the latch mechanism for the front-loading path (but have no evidence to support this concern, it just seems unnecessarily complex for such a critical process when ...
