Summary: There aren't a lot of other A2 printers around at this kind of size which makes comparing it to rival units pretty tricky. Canon have the image PROGRAF iPF5100 at around £1649 but is a large format printer with it's own stand, not the desktop type.
Pros: Small footprint for a large format printer, Wonderful quality images, Economical inks, Good colour reproduction
Excerpt: Epson's new Stylus Pro 3880 is the much-longed-for replacement to the best-selling, competitively priced A2+ Stylus Pro 3800. That model garnered praise for the quality of colour and mono output, as well as the ability to print on a wide range of cut-sheet media from 3.5 x 5in to 22 x 17in, including artboard up to 1.5mm thick, while remaining compact enough to be called a desktop printer.
