A Christmas present which I have had only limited opportunity to use. Based upon the limited use, I am VERY impressed with the quality of the prints. I have printed on both glossy and matte finishes, and the products were truly professional in appearance. Be aware that this printer has a relatively large footprint and is heavy, so keep those facts in mind as you plan a location for it. Based upon my measurements, it requires about 7" of clearance in the back for the trays and at least a similar amount in the front. Compared to other similar printers, overall I would say that this is worth the money; with the initial purchase, you get a full complement of ink, not starter or sampler cartridges.

I love this thing, I'm just really getting used to it because I've only had it 4 days now, but the draft mode is 100% better than the fine mode on my canon (which is now recycled to my dad's house), amazing color. The thing that really surprised me it how small the machine is. it fits perfectly on my shelf. I thought it would be much bigger. - don't get me wrong it is a larger machine, but its a small larger machine. If you can afford it, buy it.
I needed a second printer ...

I needed a second printer to work beside my R2880 so I bought the R3000. Just like my R2880 the R3000 is easy to setup and be printing in a matter of minutes without a snag. I can't imagine ever owning any other brand of printer than an Epson.

Just received my new Epson R3000 printer to replace my 2200. The new printer makes th old one a dinosaur in every way. From the first print the image quality is magical. I can't wait to put it to the b and w test.

Quick to install (USB) photo's came out great, perfect color match. I printed 12x12 with perfection, my other printer which I replaced with the Epson, did not print 12x12.(digital scrapbooking) My other printer did a real good jog on the 13x19's but I feel the Epson is a better match for color matching of original photo's. I would recomend this printer to any professional or amature photographer. My friends think I take my photo's to a professional for developing, some day I'll tell them the truth! The big foot I read about in other review's exagerated, it is not as big as some printer's that are compariable.
