A $1300 Paper Weight

Photodude, Amazon

  • Summary: I know a lot of people give this printer good reviews but it is usually from people who have only had it for a week, or two, and have only run couple dozen prints through. How many good reviews come from people who have successfully printed on one for more than 3 or 4 years? Epson has an attractive price for a 17x22 printer but the true cost of a printer lies in how many prints you will actually produce before you have to buy a new printer.

Great quality for the size.

  • Summary: I have owned large format printers for over 14 years. This smaller unit packs all the features of the larger printers. The print quality is now up to 2880 dpi. There are three ways to load paper - insuring that no paper type is too heavy. I am thrilled with this smaller version of the Epson Pro Series!

great prints but ecpensive to use

  • Summary: Creates high quality prints but it requires very expensive ink. Also, repairs are very expensive. I left mine idle for 5 or 6 months and the print heads dried out. This cost me $500 for repairs.

100X better than the Canon 9000 Mark II for so many reasons.

ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, Ebay

  • Summary: I've owned a 3800 that I purchased used for 550 about a year ago. It's a beautiful printer; as I've owned a Canon 9000 Mark II prior to this and it is like night and day. The Epson is a real professional printer. Reasons: I have to only change the ink once every few months; but with the canon I had to sometimes change the ink every day!! The Ink Republic Ink system added on to this printer makes it great.

I'm very happy with the results of this printer, amazing ink capacity.

  • Summary: I bought mine on Ebay used, it works amazingly well. I had a Canon 9000 Pro MarkII (well I still have it) and the speed of the Epson (especially in Black and White-Grayscale) is much faster. With the Epson 3800 my black and white photos look amazing and are produced in 1/10 the time of the Canon Pro9000. Awesome printer. I have the ink refill system as well from inkrepublic, that works great.

be careful when you have to ship this printer

scubadiver1275, Ebay

  • Summary: I wanted a printer that would give me professional quality photo prints. Don't ship this printer. I had over $300.00 in damage. If you ship it double up the box, really pack and secure it first then use a second box with peanuts in it or ship it on a light weight pallet. I bought this printer used on "ebay" if you buy one used take my advice on the shipping. the stand up couple that sold me the printer paid for all the damage.

A great printer for anyone who needs a wide format printer.

  • Summary: This is the second 38800 I have purchased. The first one was new. I moved the first one several times many miles with no issues. The print head finally quit. It printed many prints faithfully without a problem. I used it in my business so I figured it did not owe me anything. Wit a calibrated monitor it printed great color although slightly on the dark side which is a trait of Epson printers.

expensive printing and black switching

Scott Dahlgren, Amazon
9 March 2011
  • Summary: Owned this printer for ~2 years. Cost ~$450 to replace ink each time. this was ~$1800 for me and i don't print that much. Also, the blacks need to swap from photo to text and will dump black ink out at each switch into an expensive capture cartridge that you need to replace as well. the cost of the ink is high compared to other printers and the photos were good, but not spectacular.

epson 3800

olymen, Ebay
5 December 2010
  • Summary: I am using 4 Epson printers in my business and the last addition was the 3800. There is really no difference between the 3800 and the 3880 other than the new vivid magenta ink on the 3880 which cannot be used on the 3800. The printer is well build and sturdy for professional use with the exception the mickey mouse latch on the front tray. I replace mine with magnet and some super glue. The printer is made for border less printing on only the standard size papers.
