The R3000 goes beyond what I expected! I read alot of reviews before I purchased . My first print.. color is spectacular, easy to program, values of the prints are spot on to my design and speed is great. This printer is perfect for reprints of my digital photography. Exhibiton quality! This has been a terrific buy!

This is my first Epson printer, I used plenty in school well working on my photography certificate I had no desire to buy one. Well, after a few photo job and creative photo work there was a need to put control of the color back in my hands and out of others (print shops). I thought I'd start out small before jumping to the pro ranks (4880 or 4900 series). This printer is more than I expected so I ran it through its paces printing out 5x7 in, 8x10 in and a 13x19 in matte print all in one day I'm so impressed with this printer. I had to stop before I turned my house into print studio. I love this printer did mention how impressed I'm with it.
So easy for perfect prints

Having passed off my 2200 to my church I needed to replace it and there was no other consideration other than the 3000 or 3880. I am not a "heavy" user but certainly more than most. My past experiences with Epson products keeps me in the fold as they are virtually flawless when installed properly and calibrated. It took me all of 15 minutes to install the printer and software and begin printing accurate reproductions of the digital images. The colors are accurate, rich and precise. The one thing I did not even pay attention to was the thicker media printing such as on cd's and hardboard. This added feature from the 2200 has proved to present professional cd's and marketing materials that before I had to have done at outside sources; saving time and money!

Excellent quality print. My biggest suggestion: this printer is smart, have all your paper settings correct, or it won't go! :-) Called Epson tech support first try, and I had luster one place and matte the other. Learned my lesson.

I look at the 2880 and the 3880, but the r3000 had the everything I needed and the rebate made it affordable. Beside after looking hard at these printers and reading the reviews I really wanted the 4900. Anyways, I have been using this printer just a few days so I can not talk about the durability, but this printer rocks the prints are great! The colors are robust and the black and white are smoking. In addition to the super photos the time it take is fast compared to other models I have had. The cost of ink is a bit high per ml the long run it around 1.15/ml vs 0.75 for the large 17 inch models. I would buy this model again or upgrade to a larger model if money was not an issue.
