    I purchased the R2880 to replace my SP2200. I like the 2880's compact style that allows it to fold up for better dust protection. I like the added single sheet feeder that fits behind the regular sheet feed. This allows loading fine art or other thicker media that on the 2200 had to be loaded from the rear. Now I don't have to turn my printer around to feed this media. I did have a problem feeding at first since you have to feed it just right to allow the printer to "grab" the paper. The page set up is totally different than the 2200 and takes some getting acquainted with. Compared to the 2200, the image quality is no comparison. My photos look better, especially the B&W. With the 2200, the metamerism was so bad I was having to resort to black ink only mode. The R2880 produces outstanding, true black and white prints that look good in the shadows and highlights. I can't detect any metamerism in the B&W images but true black, whites and grays. Complaints about the 2880 include the ink cartridges are smaller than the 2200 (that is a physical measurement and I couldn't find the exact ml description of the two brands to see what the ml size for the two are). You still can't load both photo and matte blacks together thus causing one to use more ink during the charging process when you trade them out. With the 2200, I was able to print approximately 100 images at 1440 before changing the photo black. I just purchased the R2880 and after only 5, 8 x 10 prints of color and black and white for tests at 1440x1440, I have used almost half of the photo black. I passed on the 2400 hoping after the 3800 was released, the next model to replace the 2400 would have features such as a slightly larger ink cartridges and the ability to load both photo and matte inks together. I felt let down that neither of these came to pass. I don't know what the difference between the R2800 and 2400 are (besides the new vivid magenta ink) since I have never used the 2400. But if there is not much of a change, one might think about it well before going to the 2800 and hoping that the next release will have these changes I hoped for with this model (If that is an issue with you). If you are a 2200 user, I would definetly make the switch because the image quality is of far better quality, and the black and whites will amaze you. From my brief experience with the R2880, it appears it is going to be a trade off of great, quality prints, for high ink use and expense. That is my initial impression from the few test prints. Time will tell.

    This printer does print some very nice photos but I am not at all impressed with all of the other maneuvers you have to go through to get it to print when you have to change from photo black to matte black ink. When you change from photo black ink to matte ink or vice-versa it doesn't always recognize the cartridge change half of the time. You have to keep restarting the printer or removing and reinstalling the cartridge. That causes the printer to recharge the ink more than one time and that is a total waste of MY TIME AND MY MONEY! Sometimes you have to use a totally brand-new cartridge to get it to recognize the ink cartridge that you have installed. There are times it shows that you have photo ink in the printer but will only give you the matte options (or vice-versa) to choose from to actually print. I also don't like that you have no way of choosing to print in just black and white if you have the photo ink cartridge in but you are printing on the plain paper setting; your only choice is Epson Std sRGB or Adobe RGB. I’ll take my old Epson Stylus Photo R300 over this printer any day, but unfortunately Epson has not come up with compatible drivers to support the R300 with Windows 7.

    Great printer. I use it for large photos and it is excellent. I was sent an email with a 10% discount but when I tried to order ink it would not apply the discount.

    I am greatly pleased with the reproduction of art images. It was easy to set up. It has great color and detail. I like that it turned itself off.

    Comments about Epson Stylus R2880 Photo Printer:

    we often use patterned paper for paper craft projects.....with our new R2000, we've expanded tenfold, the available materials for our crafts....no more trips to the craft store only to settle for a pattern that isn't quite what we had in mind.....with our new printer the patterns, and our ability, is with out bounds....

    Epson 3880

    By Samantha

    from Portland, Oregon

    Comments about Epson Stylus R2880 Photo Printer:

    I use the Epson 3880 for professional black and white printing. The Ultrachrome K3 and three-level black technology produces rich black and white prints with great tonal range and attention to highlights and shadows. With four different presets for black and white I am able to have more control and precision in the printing process. The printer also has the technology to produce prints with little grain. I would recommend for photography students and professionals.

    Service required

    By jasals

    from Connecticut, USA

    Comments about Epson Stylus R2880 Photo Printer:

    I'm a Photo hobbyist and have been printing with absolute success and quite happy with the quality prints....But then one day without warning I received "Service Required" and the ink cage went to the stable locked itself there and alternating blinking lights are all I have....the printer will not communicate and will not allow me to do ANYTHING!....My research reveals the problem is most likely the ink waste pad is fully saturated so why can I not clean it as I have and have this printer respond??? Epson...Not everyone can afford the cost to service this printer online comments say the service exceeds the cost of the printer...How does this make any sense! So here I am no printer and no options I know of to get this unit back on line and printing...What say YOU!...Great Printer when working.

    Impressive

    By CarolS

    from Sarasota, FL

    Comments about Epson Stylus R2880 Photo Printer:

    My Epson Stylus Photo R1800 finally died last week :( I was crushed and concerned about getting a new photo printer. The R1800 was my "special" printer, just for photos, it did a fabulous job. After much research I ordered the R2880 online and anxiously awaited its arrival! It finally came today and I was NOT disappointed! Setup was a breeze, it is very similar to the R1800 so I had no problem jumping right into printing photos immediately afterward. It may be too soon to tell but so far I am thrilled with my decision to go with this model. I only used Epson brand paper (and ink) with my last Epson printer and intend on doing the same with this one. I believe it absolutely makes a difference in the finished product to stick with the brand when printing on my Epson printer.

    Just learning

    By CANS

    from Scanton, Pa

    Comments about Epson Stylus R2880 Photo Printer:

    I don't think I can give a great review because I just got my printer. What I can say, it was easy to set up, and start printing out photos.... If I can set it up anyone can... I am learning about the different types of paper thanks to Epson Stylus 2880. I would say that I take a lot pictures, and do sell some when asked. What I don't like is changing out the black ink, when I change styles of paper.. I end up with black inn on my hands. I will keep surgery gloves when I change black ink....

    Comments about Epson Stylus R2880 Photo Printer:

    Setting up the Stylus Photo R2880 Inkjet Printer was simple and the printer was ready to go immediately. Since I have System 8 I had to go to the Epson website to get the most up-to-date driver. Once again, no problem. Routine printing of documents is a snap. I am rapidly learning to take advantage of the printer's capabilities for printing quality photograph. So far so good.
