Replacing my R2400 with the R3000

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.
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.
Summary: I have been unable to fix the problem of black ink dripping on my prints. There two (2) Epson service center in Dallas, TX. I would not trust either one. The only solution is to buy a new printer.
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.
Summary: I love the printer but am not happy in the least that Epson doesn't provide icc profiles for this printer and Ultra Premium Photo Paper Luster. When that's corrected I'll give 5 stars happily!
Summary: This is my 2nd R3000 in a little over 2 years. Output is very good. Clogged head is the problem. On my [just over 2 years old] R3000 the head clogged after swapping PK to MK inks for printing my Xmas cards. Swapped back to PK and it clogged. No amount of head cleaning would clear the print head.
Summary: Prints nice photos. I use it with LR4 and now 5. I like the Advanced BW setting. Sucks ink like there's no tomorrow and swapping from PK to MK, well that really sucks ink. But, those are know issues and how we keep printer makers in business.
Summary: As a long time Epson owner I purchased the Epson R3000 expecting professional-level quality and reliability. On both scores this printer leaves something to be desired. For example, within 3 months, the printer jammed and then would not print. I had to take it into get repaired.
Summary: This printer was easy to set up and does a great job of my daily printing. I had hoped to do a great deal of printing on fabric. So far the color output is inferior to my Epson 2200. The fabric printing was the main reason to purchase a printer with a multitude of ink colors.
