A $1300 Paper Weight

Photodude, Amazon
29 December 2013
  • 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.

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.

Nothing but dark prints

Thomas Russo "Tom", Amazon
5 August 2009
  • 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 trying other monitors (all at or below L=100) 2) Printing from other machines (one of my PCs is XP-64, the other is XP-32) 3) Letting apps manage colors and using ICC profiles 4)...

EPSON 3800 PRO BAD NEWS!!!!!!!!!!

Ronald F. Thompson, Amazon
29 December 2007
  • Summary: My wife purchased the Epson 3800 Pro Printer as a Christmas Present. I printed less than 10 photos and got an error message. The message said to contact the Service Repair Center which is only open from 6-6 M-F Pacific time. Not the level of Customer Service or Performance that I expected for the price of the printer. The quality of the few prints was excellent.

Un timo

mml69, Ciao
13 June 2007
  • Summary: Estaba yo contentísima con mi impresora cuando un buen día se me acabó el cartucho magenta... no os creais que os deja imprimir al menos en blanco y negro como sería lo normal... nada de nada, hasta que no tengais todos los cartuchos con tinta no le sale del mismísimo imprimir aunque querais sólo en blanco y negro. Vamos todo un timo de impresora, a mí, estos no me vuelven a pillar! Epson, menudo timo! Y encima los cartuchos no duran nada!!
  • Pros: ninguna porque las desventajas superan a las ventajas .
  • Cons: Los  cartuchos son un timo .  Epson alias el gran timo
