Replacing my R2400 with the R3000

Frank Schorr, Amazon
14 November 2014
  • Summary: So let me start off by saying I'm really bitter about my decision to buy this machine. I wished I could keep using my Epson R2400, but it really wastes more ink now than ever mostly because the quality is no longer good. It still prints great when it wants to, but usually between ink swaps debris and gunk get caught from somewhere and dirties the prints. Not all the time. I've printed with this machine since it came into the market.

Three Year Problems

Adorama
11 November 2014
  • Excerpt: This machine worked well for three years. I probably make one print a week. Suddenly it began to drop blobs of PK ink on my prints. Fixing it will be more than half the cost of a new one! Checked the Yahoo/Epson users group and found that this is a problem with other users.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Too much ink used, Unreliable

Unexpected cleaning cycles = waste of time & ink

Anonymous, Epson
25 October 2014
  • Summary: Immediately between print jobs, my R3000 often decides to run an unrequested cleaning cycle. Not only does this drain costly ink, but it takes about 10 minutes of my valuable time, competely stalling productivity. Furhter, when you switch between photo and matte ink, it goes through another ink-pumping cycle to get purge ink in the tubes, wasting more ink.

janel, Epson
4 October 2014
  • Summary: Using it with a Mac Pro. Instructions are not great as it took a long time to figure out how to get the settings right. Still struggle with getting it to change the black ink right. My photo prints have random red ink droplets on them, usually 1 or 2 drops per photo. They are still wet on printout but leave a spot if you try to dab them off. Was always happy with printshop and windows and epson, not so pleased with new epson, printshop, and mac.

Ink Spitting

PalakaJoe, Epson

  • Summary: I'm an artist and love the inks. They do not fade. I bought two of these printers used on two different islands. Both of them occasionally spit ink ruining prints or canvas gicle'es.
