I have had the printer for over two years and it has proved to be quite reliable. What I particularly like about this model compared to other Epson photo printers I have had are the following: 1) Large print cartridges; 2) Less need to clear print heads etc.; 3) Periods of limited use are handled better (e.g., less need to clear print heads); 4) Absolutely excellent quality, including black & white photos; 5) Excellent response from Epson's call center. My only problem is trying to use canvas paper. It is very difficult to the extent I still have not been able to get good results.

This printer is very user friendly and the finished products are wonderful
Excellent photos. The ...

Excellent photos. The only problem I have experienced is problems handling 8 1/2 X 11 Photo paper. It stops feeding about 2/3 of the way through and I have to help it. Otherwise I would give it 5 stars.

This R3000 replaced my long loved R1800. I am amazed at the fantastic print quality of the R3000! Setup was a snap; I was printing 13" x 19's in no time!! Thank you Epson, for making such a beautiful printer!!!
