Product Reviews for Epson Stylus Office R3000 Inkjet Printer - Color - CD/DVD Print - Desktop
from Michigan on 2/14/2013
My friend recommended this printer to me and it clearly surpassed my expectations. His printer is an earlier version of mine. Epson really stepped up the options on this model by adding more ink colors/blacks, larger variety of paper/media to print on including - Canvas, CD/DVD, etc. The colors in photos really pop out. Also this model includes the newer options like a mode for Black and White photos and Roll Paper up to 44 inches! When I purchased this Printer I was able to get a $150 rebate too! You can't go wrong with this Model!

Makes many marks on the stock. Random or they are in one specific spot. Cleaned and Cleaned and Cleaned it and still get them. So far that is my only issue.
Best Wireless Large Format Printer, Period!
By Sunny Bleek
from Los Angeles,Ca. on 2/7/2013
The Epson R3000 hands down is the best wireless large format printer for home use hands down. I've owned this printer since it's release. My Photo Studio is upstairs and my office is located down stairs. Going wireless makes for easy work flow. The print quality is truly photo gallery ready. I've never seen better B&W photos with more blacker blacks from any other printer. Print speed is very good for large prints and excellent for B&W prints. My only gripe is sitting up print margins for photos larger than 8.5 x 11.5 could be much smoother. This printer is a must for any Pro Photographer and advance Photographer who cares about their work.

This is my first consumer/pro printer. I find the printer very strait forward and easy to use. There is a small learning curve with the color profiles with individual programs and other settings. The printing is absolutely incredible. The colors are rich and detailed. Very impressive. Great product!
Epson R3000 Casual User Review
from Sparks, MD on 1/29/2013
After nearly eight years of faithful service from my Epson R2400, I decided the time had come for an upgrade. Even though my R2400 still prints great, there were several key features of the R3000 that compelled me to purchase the new printer, including the ability to print CD/DVDs, the straight-path manual feed capability, increased ink capacity, and 802.11n Wi-Fi support. The out-of-box unpacking experience was extremely straight forward. The included Epson quick-start sheet was easy to follow, and there were no surprises with regard to removing the packing materials and setting up the new ink cartridges. The printer is almost identical in size to the older R2400, but you do need a little more room behind the R3000 to accomodate the straight paper-path when using the manual feed option. It is not recommended to put this printer directly against a wall if you will utilize art board or some of the more rigid fine art papers. While Wi-Fi setup on the R3000 was simple, you might wish to connect the printer via USB to your computer initially so that you can update the Firmware to the latest version. Epson has released several Firmware updates for the R3000 to address key functions, so an upgrade to the latest is strongly recommended. Firmware may possible via Wi-Fi, but the update application indicates a USB connection is required. Print quality so far has been exceptional on Epson Premium Glossy 4x6 borderless photo paper, Premium White Inkjet 8.5x11", Avery smooth-edge double sided inket business cards, and Intuit pre-printed check stock. I use the R3000 for general purpose every-day printing, in addition to occasional photo printing. The build quality appears to be very sturdy and well laid out. I cannot comment about long term reliability of the R3000 at this time, due to my short ownership. But, if the R3000 is anything like my trusty R2400, I look forward to a long and happy relationship with this new printer.
