Showing 1-10 of 18
Cheaply made, expensive ink refills, short service life, expensive repairs. Wonderful prints though.

Summary: Short and Sweet: 1) Prints beautifully 2) Cheaply made plastic printer 3) Printer purposely wastes ink 4) Check the price on Epson ink cartridges first...you'll be shocked at the cost 5) Refillable ink cartridges are available, but with mixed results (Not recommended) 6) Must print fairly frequently...
Summary: I had my R3000 for around 3 years. All features worked very well. Excellent quality prints. Quiet. Perfect in every way. Why only 2 stars? Recently the printer started to drip black ink blobs that would smear across the paper - literally thick wet blobs of ink.
Summary: I read all the reviews and talked with some professional photographers and decided to buy this model. I have been very disappointed. No where did it mention that this printer is extremely slow to print.
Summary: This was a spectacular printer when it was working. But the black ink nozzles clogged frequently and eventually deposited black blobs of ink on the edges of the paper. Because I liked the quality of the prints, I took the printer to an authorized repair shop, where they replaced the print head, at...
Summary: I bought the R3000 22 months ago. The print quality is fantastic - but I've printed only 15 of the 20 sheets of 8 1/2 x 11" paper that came in a bundle with the printer and I'm out of one ink and low on most others.
Summary: You probably do not want a review from me until I can get a decent print out of this machine. Too bad it just doesn't print well right from the start. I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt because I'm hoping it is so vastly capable that I just haven't chosen the right options yet.
Summary: I've had this printer for 8 months. Mostly satisfied with the print quality as is often stated in other on line reviews. I don't print with it very much so the initial ink has last until now. I bought the ink ahead of time so that when I did run out I wouldn't have to wait and stop printing.
Summary: This is my sixth Epson ink jet printer. The quality of printing from photographs with this printer is by far the best I have had. However, there are serious problems with it. After using it for a little over a month the printer has failed to recognise three (different) colour inks, and my printer...
Summary: I bought this printer 2 months ago. It lasted 1 week before it broke. First they offered me a refurbished device but then gave me a brand new one as it was within 1 month of purchase. The new printer now broke again and I got a used and refurbished model instead.
Summary: Ich habe den Epson R3000 im Mai 2013 gekauft und hatte bereits 2 Mal Probleme. Einmal waren alle möglichen Tintenpatronen verstopft und mussten sehr oft gereinigt werden, was schon mal extrem viel Tinte erfordert und gerade heute erkennt er aus heiterem Himmel die Tintenpatrone nicht mehr.
