Summary: Hey, I really want to like this printer. But how can I review anything except the fact it came DOA from Epson? After a fairly quick session with Tech Support, I got redirected to the RETURNS department. A new printer is supposed to be here in a couple of days.
Summary: I am not one to review products in general, however, my level of frustration with this printer is immense. This printer is extremely finicky, making loading and printing on heavier paper time consuming, often stopping in the middle of a job and requiring cancelation of the job, and slow print time.

Summary: 've been using (and using up) Epson color ink-jet printers for a very long time. My previous Epson all-in-one was a r1900 model, which I put through the ringer and it lasted five years and many thousands of pages.
Excerpt: Recommended by the Online technology guy in Halifax to print on card stock. Could not get colors anywhere close using Photoshop or the printer settings. Had to call Epson Tech support twice. Their short answer (including saying the manual was wrong) -- never use anything other than Epson paper.
If you get a good one you are lucky. If you get a bad one you may be out of luck!

Summary: I wanted to buy an R3000 to be able to print on professional quality paper. I had used an Epson 2200 for years and was very pleased, so I thought I could trust them. I ordered a refurbished R3000 for $525 in October when new ones were not available.
Summary: I hate this printer. Worst investment I have ever made. It does not sync well with an iMac at all. Always issues with it telling me the wrong ink is on deck or an ink is low when it is not. Throw yourself a roast in the crockpot when you want to print something.
Summary: My R3000 is dead in the water after 2 years of use. It's my 4th Epson, the most expensive and the quickest to die. Actually the ONLY one to die. The problem is the black ink. I have learned that switching from Photo Black to Matte Black inks will soon cause the lines and print heads to clog.
