Summary: I have had this printer for about three years. I used to work in commercial labs and know very well how to make prints. If you do not use the printer often you will be changing inks often. I have not used it for a month and tried to make some prints. I got an error that said contact Epson Service.
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?
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.
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.
Summary: This printer is not as fast as the big $10,000 plotters, but the quality is just as good. For the serious hobby guy like me, I don't have any regrets. The only complaint is that the front door does not stay shut very well. Also, a dust cover should have been provided.
Summary: I've just been waiting for my Epson 2400 to give out on me so I could get the Pro 3800. I am not one bit disappointed in it's performance and now I can print on a much greater selection of professional paper and make larger sized prints.
Summary: I've had this since March 2008. I like the large capacity ink cartridges which last a long time. I print mainly on Red River Paper using the RR profiles and have no complaints about print quality at all.
Summary: What a great investment! I am a designer, and this printer gives me great control over how I print my materials, what I am printing on, including the quality, weight, and size of the paper. I am 100% happy with this purchase!
Summary: I'll start by saying that for many people, this has clearly been a great printer. Just not in my case, unfortunately. Prints come out a good shade darker than they should be. I've tried all the obvious fixes with Epson tech support: 1) Calibrating my monitor to make sure it's not too bright, and...
Summary: Working with Velvet Fine Art and using Colormunki printer calibration. I fine that the printer doesn't seem to do well working in moderate F stop changes to the darker side in the photo. An example is an antique car under a carport at a old gas station.
