Epson Stylus Photo R3000 Inkjet Printer
4 weeks ago
Summary: Have used Epson printers throughout the years at my job and purchased one for home use which is the R3000 Inkjet Printer. So far the printing has been excellent and the photos come out very nicely.
Summary: I use the Epson Stylus Photo R3000 for printing photographs downloaded to my computer from 3 different cameras. It makes excellent prints and is much faster than my 2200. However the on standard settings the R3000 prints are noticably darker than the 2200. I have to use special settings to get the R3000 prints to be as bright as I prefer. Warning! Use only Epson ink. I used other brands of ink with disasterous results.
Summary: Purchased this printer to replace my R1900, which had a disappointingly short lifespan! THAT is another story--the only Epson product that ever proved to be a bad experience (I have had several GOOD experiences over the years). The R3000, so far, is a JOY, especially with the $200 rebate. Its performance has been stellar so far. The only complaint I have (not trivial) is that when switching from Photo Black to Matte Black (or vice-versa) too much ink is used up.
Summary: WOW! I had to buy a new Epson as I stupidly killed mine. Anyway my old one was beyond perfect and after 5 years with the old one printing so perfectly every time I thought oh no a new one is never going to do as great. Well I was wrong. My new Stylus R3000 is perfect. I would say the detail when I enlarge an image is not quite as perfect as the first one but still good. Most small images don't enlarge well no matter what printer you use.
Summary: I run a small photography business (mostly a hobby that pays for itself!) out of my home. I offer a few prints to my clients with their photo packages, and I am always proud to deliver them. The color is vivid and spot on when compared to what I hoped would print, and sometimes it's better! I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to print their photos in house and avoid the uncertainty of color you get from the local pharmacy.
