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

  • 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.

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.

Quality Prints

Duane Beggs "duaneb", Amazon
9 November 2009
  • 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. I understand there is a new model.

Excellent quality but flimsy construction

Bill, Amazon
25 September 2009
  • 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. I've printed hundreds of prints from 4x6 to 17x25 and have only had to clean the print heads (using the printer utility) a couple times. I've replaced the maintenance cartridge once. I print almost exclusively on glossy paper, though.

  • Summary: Happy. That's really all I have to say about this printer. It prints lovely. I am a photo grad student and love it's wide format ability, the quality of the images. i am also making digital negatives and pretty happy with the quality of those too. All i have to do now is learn to work them better in photoshop! This printer is great. I'd go epson if i was gonna buy a larger one in the future.
  • Pros: Durable construction, Easy Setup, Easy To Use
  • Cons: Too much ink used

No problems

Alan Wilson, Amazon
12 October 2008
  • Summary: First, this printer is big and heavy. It needs a lot of space to work. When pulling the printer out of the box, be sure to follow the directions and lift the printer from the sides rather than the front and back. Lifting it front and back seems like it could do some damage. Out of the box, the little piece of metal that holds the output tray closed came off and the output cover wouldn't stay closed.

Nice machine

Wolfgang, B&H Photo
28 September 2008
  • Summary: I print from 4 x 6 inch photo paper to 17 inch wide and 28 inch long Canvas. Canvas printing needs leading edge of photo paper taped on. All prints look beautiful. Had some issues after first power on, needed to remove one ink cartridge again so that door would lock. Since than no issue! The initial issue is the reason for 4 stars only.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Durable construction, Reliable
