    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.

    Epson 2880 Color and B&W Printer

    By Chuck M

    from Columbus, Ohio

    Comments about Epson Stylus R2880 Photo Printer:

    This is a great printer. It produced very true-to-monitor color prints. You have to use GOOD paper, and know your color gamuts, and set the print preview option on in the printer dialog. On my system, if the print preview looked good - I got a good print. Oh, and it makes great B&W prints too - much better than my old 8-color printer.


    Ink Problem

    By axbell

    from Liverool, NY

    Comments about Epson Stylus R2880 Photo Printer:

    The Title (Ink problem) shows why I used this. My printer is use mainly for printing photos, and I print images of different sizes. 5x7, 8x10, and 11x14. The Epson r2880 seems to wastes a lot of Ink when I turn the printer on and off. At startup it waste alot. I'm buying a lot of ink, and it's not cheap.

    Comments about Epson Stylus R2880 Photo Printer:

    While it is true that the quality of the photos is very good, the fact that you have to change cartridges to print photos is highly annoying. The other even more irritating aspect of this printer is that it is painfully slow when printing a document. I previously had an R800 which was extremely fast printing documents but not quite as good printing photos. Still, I prefer the R800 overall. If you are more Zen than I am, perhaps you will like the R2880.


    Outstanding Photo Printer

    By Mike

    from Troy, Micigan

    Comments about Epson Stylus R2880 Photo Printer:

    I have enjoyed outstanding results from this printer which is my first Epson photo printer. This printer is by far so superior to the other brand of photo printer I had. if the need arises I would not hesitate to purchase the Epson 4990 printer.


    Excellent Printer!

    Big but not a problem. Banding in the beginning but okay now. Excellent black and white on matte paper.


    The best prints are from EPSON

    By horsethunder

    from Vigin, Utah

    Comments about Epson Stylus R2880 Photo Printer:

    The EPSON 2880 is the best printer that I have owned. I have used EPSON printers since 2001 and the products have been improved with the introduction of of every new printer. It is important to note however, that in order to achieve the best results form this printer, one must take the time to know the machine well and to inter phase it well with your computer. I highly recommend it and I am looking forward to the purchasing and using EPSON'S new products.

    2880 Printer

    By Rod

    from PA

    Comments about Epson Stylus R2880 Photo Printer:

    Visually the printer is of middle quality corresponding to its middle price -- not the level of Epson's profession printers. The roll paper is an advantage for the price and functions more or less ok. As per generally functionality, it is reasonable when new, but if you do not use it regularly, it can be a really drag trying to get it functioning again -- not an uncommon problem with color printers but I find one that can be particularly problematic with Epsons. I would not buy this again.

    The worst printer I've ever owned

    By niklas

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Epson Stylus R2880 Photo Printer:

    Most of the time it doesn't want to print and you have to spend hours figuring out why. Now it refuses to print 4x6s. It's neverending the problems with this one.

    Very pleased with the R3000 Printer

    By Rusty Stumps

    from Indianapolis, IN

    Comments about Epson Stylus R2880 Photo Printer:

    I was slow to purchase this printer because of negative reviews. I looked at other brands but came back to this one. Finally about a month ago I purchased the R3000 and I won't look back. This printer has run almost flawlessly right from the start. I am getting rave reviews on my prints of trips to Alaska and Yellowstone. I print mainly on InkPress Luster stock and InkPress Gloss Canvas. Canvas printing on this printer is my only complaint. Epson tries to force you to "do it their way" and use only their canvas. There are no selections for canvas in any of the menus. I tired using the thick media loading of the 13"x19" sheet stock, that doesn't work even with a backer. I finally settled on feeding it just like regular gloss paper through the top feeder with the same settings and the results have been super. Ink usage isn't anywhere as bad as has been reported. I still have 8 of the original cartridges in the printer and have printed at least 30-40 large prints of 11x14 and 13x19 size. Again, a fantastic printer and a definate if you want to show off your photography to it's best. I will be starting to sell my photo prints come this spring.

    Where's the manual?

    By Gadget Freak

    from Mexico City

    Comments about Epson Stylus R2880 Photo Printer:

    I think this is a great product, with wonderful features which unfortunately remain a mystery because of the lack of proper, comprehensive manual. Even a PDF version or QuickTime demo included in the installation CD would have been helpful.
