No problems

Alan in Houston, Amazon

  • 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.

Much to like but one setup challenge

Thomas E. Tauber, Amazon
17 September 2007
  • Summary: I just bought the printer but had problems setting it up. My first prints (on Epson Ultra Premium Luster Paper) came out smudged and had rows of little pin pricks on them. I had to call Technical Support (very good - especially that Epson has a special service for professional printers) to get...

Pro 3800 vs R1800

Donna W., Amazon
17 September 2007
  • Summary: I now own both the R1800 and the R3800 printers. I bought the R1800 a few years ago, shortly after it came out. This fall I attended a photo trade show in NYC. There were prints on display that were stunning and I got excited about upgrading my printer. There were two or three things I wanted.

Excellent Printer.

Photonman, Amazon
17 September 2007
  • Summary: Ive had this printer for over a year now, and its flawless. Wanted black and white prints that actually looked like black and white, with no color cast unless I put it there. It does that and more. 17x22's are beautiful.

Excellent quality but flimsy construction

Bill, Amazon
17 September 2007
  • 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.

Quality Prints

Duane Beggs, Amazon
17 September 2007
  • 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.

Prints great as long as you calibrate your monitor

N. Lamb, Amazon
17 September 2007
  • Summary: I've had my Epson 3800 for 7 years. I have had little trouble with it. Prints great as long as you calibrate your monitor, learn the right settings for your paper and download the right print profiles for your paper.

Photographers preference.

K. Wohlers, Amazon
17 September 2007
  • Summary: I have had an Stylus Pro 2400 for the past 2 years before this up-grade to a Stylus pro 3800. The fact that I can produce image sizes of 16x20 (largest with this printer is 17x22) I have found no manufacturer that offers 16x20 papers as yet.

great professional quality

Debra J. Richter, Amazon
17 September 2007
  • Summary: Very good professional printer, easy to use, adaptable for all my photographic printing needs. This is my first professional printer, so it took some getting used to as far as setting the settings for different paper size and so on, but overall it's relatively easy to figure out your preferences.

  • Excerpt: Before buying this printer I used a professional lab for all my work. I was never really happy with the quality of black & white digial prints on colour paper. The black & white prints from this printer are as good as I could get spending hours in the darkroom. The quality is amazing.
  • Pros: Professional A2 printing for under £1000 .
  • Cons: Large size, but not compared to other A2 printers
