    I bought this recently and am quite happy with it, especially given the amazing sale price I managed to get at the time. I can't tell the difference between its output and that from the 3880s at school. It might as well be the Epson Stylus Pro R3000, in fact I don't know why they don't just call it that. Maybe it's only because it's below the price point that they want to provide premium support for or something, but it seems like a 13" version of the 3880 to me. Anyway, check around for printer tests on the net. The thing gets very high ratings in many areas. The only real issue I've had is that my R3000 stopped in the middle of the first priming attempt with an "ink error" (that's all it said) during initial setup. This meant that it had to start over, wasting a massive amount of ink (the tanks were only 1/3rd full after this, making me think that perhaps they had sent me "starter" cartridges). Luckily Epson gave me absolutely no trouble about addressing this; they sent me a brand new FULL set of 9 ink cartridges for free without a second thought. Though there might be some sort of bug with the priming, Epson is willing to more than compensate for it without any complaint. My only theory as to why this might have happened is that it was almost freezing outside during shipping, and though I did wait a while to set it up maybe I didn't wait long enough for the ink cartridges to warm up. However I didn't see any warnings about this anywhere in the setup instructions, and the printer/ink were not obviously unusually cold. Cons: The only thing about this printer that really annoys me is the amount of ink that gets dumped when switching from matte to photo black and vice versa. If you switch from photo black to matte black, then switch back, the thing dumps 5ml ($5) worth of ink down the drain! The 3880 has the exact same issue and dumps the same amount of ink doing this, but I really don't get why any of these printers need to do this. Why can't they just run another ink line and have another set of matte black nozzles on the printhead? They already have 8 sets. Is doing 9 that much harder or more expensive than 8? Anyway, that's the only thing that's annoying me about it. (The priming problem was a one time thing and Epson more than compensated for that, so I really can't complain.) If you switch from photo to matte to print one thing on matte, and then switch back immediately afterwards, then you're literally using 6 totally covered Letter sized sheets worth of ink just to print one sheet.

    I like Epson printers. The Epson R3000 Printer is my fourth Epson Printer. I started out with a 1280 model, moved to a 1800 model (loved that glossy look) and then went to a 2880 because I wanted to do Black & White, which I thought the 2880 did superbly. But my 2880 rear paper feed never really worked with any consistency and when the pump and other noises began to make me think that the old 2880 was on its last legs I decided to spring for the R3000 rather than take the risk that a new 2880 would simply have the same rear paper feed problems. Plus, Epson advertised that the R3000 offered better color, so I went for it. Installation & set up of the 3000 went well. There have been a few changes but nothing big and if you have used Epson printers previously you should not have any problems. Printing with the Top Sheet feeder is basically the same as the other Epson products. There has been a redesign in the way that thick “Fine Art� paper is installed. Rather than feed these papers through the rear as in previous designs, the Fine Art Paper is now inserted through a paper tray in the front where the printer grabs it, feeds it through to the rear where the machine aligns it prior to feeding the paper back into the printer it to make the print. I found the directions for this process rather opaque in the owner’s manual and had to call Epson for explanation which Epson provided without any problem. Once you get the feel for the process things go fine, but the process requires you to follow explicit prompts on the screen in the front of the printer. This process takes time though, the machine is in control, it takes its time and you cannot hurry it. The good news is that there have no paper jams. I have not yet decided on the print quality. I have printed everything on Level 4 Quality. The first prints I made on Cold Press paper seemed to have a little more vividness but it is hard to tell. The monochrome prints I have made do not seem to have the great tonal values that I got with the 2880, but that may be a case of me getting used to the machine. The negative comment I have is Ink Consumption. The R3000 seems to suck up ink like the desert sands absorb water. Ink consumption is definitely much higher with the R3000 than the 2880. My preliminary estimate is that consumption is up by as much as 50%. I am going to have to reduce the number of casual prints I make with this machine simply because of this increase in ink consumption. The prints are nice though. Except for the consumption issue I am pleased with my printer but if you are considering a purchase think about how you will be using the machine.

    Worst $800 printer ever.

    Comments about Epson® Stylus® R3000 Wide-Format Photo Printer:

    Recommended by the Online technology guy in Halifax to print on card stock. Could not get colors anywhere close using Photoshop or the printer settings. Had to call Epson Tech support twice. Their short answer (including saying the manual was wrong) -- never use anything other than Epson paper. Not an option. Card stock must be 13" x 17" to use front feed. Not an option.

    Buy HP. I print using Epson Matte Canvas in the HP with no problem. No media eve used in my HOP has been a problem. I just wanted a desktop printer to help with smaller jobs.

    Epson R3000

    By pudelin

    from Bartlesville, OK

    Comments about Epson® Stylus® R3000 Wide-Format Photo Printer:

    Super easy to install and so quiet! I finished the installation with the test print and was cross because it wasn't printing, or so I preceived -- just SO MUCH quieter than any other printer I've owned that I didn't realize it was printing. Very fast also. Am sure I will enjoy this printer.

    Haven't used all the features, but more convenient than Epson Color 2200 it replaced. Network, wired and wireless, and ability print CD's and DVD's convinced me. Overall, very satisfied. Looks cool, too!

    Top of The Line

    By Badger

    from Texas

    Comments about Epson® Stylus® R3000 Wide-Format Photo Printer:

    This is a top of the line printer for those who want consistantly high quality prints every time. As far as I know, no other printer can match Epsons engineering. I was looking for a printer that would render black and white images as good as your best photo labs can produce. I have found it in the Epson R3000. The images are as good as you can make them. I have read complaints about how much ink this printer uses. In my experience, this machine uses no more ink than any other quality printer. The cost of the inks seem high but you are getting twice the amount of ink when compared to smaller printers. Also, you are buying pigmented inks. This printer and the inks are worth every penny. If you compare the cost of a photo lab to this printer, the Epson is by far much more cost effective. Plus, you are in complete control. If you don't like the first results, then just change your settings and print again. No waiting for an outside print lab to get it right. I use to print color and black and white in a wet darkroom. Not so much any more. This is the way to go. It leaves me more time for creativity. One more note. Before I purchased this printer, I pondered over the R3000 vs the R3880. I liked the idea of larger prints with the R3880 but I also like the idea of the wi-fi with the R3000. In the end I decided on the R3000. To me, the wi-fi was more important than larger prints. Besides, all the years I printed in a dark room, I probably only made 5 or 6 16x20 prints. I made 100s of 8x10s and 11x14s. So, it was a no brainer for me. Why buy something with a feature you may seldom use. I can go to a lab for that. Of course, this is just my preferences. Your needs may be different.
