Quality of output great, sheet feeder VERY poor

Sammy, Epson
17 December 2013
  • Summary: I have had a 3880 for about 2 years. It produces very good quality prints. However, for its price point, I would have expected much better paper handling. The main feed slot is relatively easy to use, but the rear feed is VERY poor: this is the only slot you can use for A4 and A2. It takes much tricky handling of paper to get it to be taken up.

Nice prints, but takes more skill than I like

Queen Mo, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been able to get some very very lovely prints out of this machine. I SWORE I would never own another Epson, but this size format is so hard to find. This is not what I would consider a "beginners" printer. Color correction takes patience and is vital to get all you can out of the printer and the high quality paper you should use. GREAT for printing high end photos and art, but just know there more of a learning curve than the average home digital printer.

Reliability Poor

JohnM, Epson
3 June 2013
  • Summary: I affirm all the raves about print quality given in other reviews, when it works. I've had years of experience with both the 2200 and the R2880 with little problem, and am pleased with the improved print quality from the 3880.

Good printer with unfixable flaws

D. Butterfield "butter", Amazon
13 September 2012
  • Summary: I got Stylus Pro 3880 #1 about 3 weeks ago. After reading 50+ glowing reviews about the phenomenal quality of 16x20 black and white prints on Epson Exhibition Fiber paper, I decided to upgrade from my trusty Stylus Photo 2200. 3880 #1 was the best but had a couple of uneven printouts and several with microscopic white dots. The white dot problem was the paper which has to be carefully cleaned of dust.

Great Printer, issues with Mac driver

  • Summary: This is an excellent printer when it prints. Unfortunately, even after reinstalling the latest printer driver on my Mac pro tower running PS 5.5 under Snow Leopard, it keeps hanging up.

Will have problems with IPhoto

Jall, B&H Photo
14 February 2011
  • Excerpt: So I guess it is too much to ask to just hook up an expensive printer and expect everything to work like a charm. After installing the supplied printer drivers and trying to print out of iPhoto, iPhoto will crash everytime and display an error message regarding a plug-in. I googled the problem and learned it has been an issue with Epson printers since 2009.

Overpriced for a "Throw-a-Way" printer

Jeff N, B&H Photo
27 October 2010
  • Excerpt: The printer does a great job in all respects. The issues I have is with Epson's on going support of this printer and all their printers. I had the 3800 Pro for 3.5 years when it died. After contacting Epson and a authorized repair center, I was told / warned the cost of repair would be $750 to $950 and I could replace the printer for about [$].
Sure I could, but the point is that this is NOT a $50-$100 throw away printer.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time
  • Cons: Repair costs
