Summary: The Epson Stylus Pro 4880 is a Fantastic Printer. It make beautiful large relatively quick prints. One thing to keep in mind is that it's more expensive to operate. It takes 8 ink cartridges at an average low price of around $40/$45 dollars a cartridge.
Summary: I bought a used one on a well-known auction website, lol... but Newegg rocks anyways!
Pros: This is my first "high end" printer and it is really impressive. Photographs printed look beautiful. Has 8 separate ink cartridges with multiple shades of black and cyan, etc. Everything has looked great so far.
Cons: Better make this thing earn its keep because everything about it is expen$ive... 8 ink cartridges at about $80 a piece. Also it is ENORMOUS. 3 feet wide and nearly as deep, and weighs about 90 lbs. Better make some room for this baby. Good conversation piece lol.
Lousy printer ALWAYS prints dark no matter what settings.

Summary: I have had a nightmare with this printer since I purchased it. It ALWAYS prints too dark from Adobe Photoshop. I have read COUNTLESS articles about how I need to disable the printer's color management and use only Photoshop color management. Been there, done that.
Summary: I've had this printer almost a year. I read one review that said you have to print every couple days or the heads clog. I find this very true and I find I have to print almost everyday or one channel or more will have head clogging.
Summary: I've had this Printer for about three weeks now and I love it! However, It is a beast! Make sure you have a heavy solid stand to put it on. It does weigh 150 lbs! I have mine on a solid Oak coffee table. I am a Photographer, and So far I have framed a few 13" X "19 prints and they look stunning!
Summary: this printer is the ficklest printer that i have ever owned, it makes mis-prints, on hundreds of dollars worth of paper and wastes hen it works properly it makes a very nice print, but that's only 1 out of every 2 tries, the rest of the time, it prints on half of a sheet and then says something like...
Summary: This purchase was for the replacement of an Epson 4000 printer that was no longer supported using Mac OS 10.6. There were some minor difficulties setting up the network printing options, but support had seen the issue before and had me reset the network card via the control panel on the printer...
Summary: I really like the way this printer prints. The color and clarity are almost flawless. It is a very expensive printer to keep up. each ink cartridge is in the range of $55 to $60 and it takes 8.
Great Printer! Watch out for borders on Cut Sheets!

Summary: I have been using this printer for about 3 weeks and it has worked wonderfully. The color profiles I've gotten from Epson and Ilford are close enough that I will not bother with custom profiling until I find a lot of spare time. Ink usage is pretty moderate.
I like this printer. It does what it is suppose to do.

Summary: I am a professional photographer, I have a studio were i do most of my shoots. I have been using the R2000 for about 1 year now and i've had very little if not no problem at all with it. However, the R2000 can only do so much. Moreover the Ink cartridges runout too quickly.
