Very, Very good product, I am well pleased with the overall quality of the prints. This printer as made me so confident in making the decision to purchase an other item produced by this company.

Epson 2880 printer
This is a good printer that prints colors accurately. It is relatively fast and prints up to 13 inches wide. It also can print on roll paper and rather thick media. I like that i can print labels for a CD.
My only complaint is that you have to change the black ink when you switch between glossy and matte printing. This is a nuisance when you have several prints to make in various surfaces and sizes. Especially if you decide you want to print the same print in both to compare.

The Epson R2880 Inkjet Printer is the best photo printer that I bought. My photos are great. People who have viewed my photos are really impressed. My next photo printer will be the Epson R3000.

Epson 2880 Photo Printer
I purchased two Epson 2880 Photo printers over a year ago, one I use and one my daughter uses. Both printers have worked extremely well, produced the finest photo prints we have ever printed, and had no miss feeds of the photo paper. Also, without any special treatment, the color prints accurately reproduce the pictures shown on our color monitors. We replaced two Epson 2200 printers which we have used for several years and have been very pleased with the improved quality of the color prints from the 2800 printers.

I doubt you could find a better desktop printer. It is absolutely sensational for printing photos, and the wide carriage is a big help for some of the work I do.
If you want negative comments ... It is pretty much like all inkjet printers. It's slow, and ink costs are high. I don't have a way to compare it to other printers in these two areas, but in my experience all the inkjet printers I have ever used are slow with high ink costs.

Very Good Printer
This printer replaces a decade old Epson wide format. I was hoping it would perform better but it passed expectations.
Colors are very close to screen output, bright and large gamut. I don't use Epson papers but the printer is popular enough that very solid ICC profiles are readily available from most custom paper houses.
I've shown some prints to friends and coworkers and had a two people buy photos from me. I'm a hobby photographer so no selling pressure was applied. I've given some prints to family and they have been very well received.
So far nozzle clogging hasn't been a problem, but I've made prints at least monthly with it.
The reason for 4 stars rather than 5 is my fault. It's results are good enough I think I should have bought a wider printer rather than the 13" model.

The final prints that I make with my Epson 2880 are great.
Its important to note that the digital darkroom printing process requires proof prints just like the old wet darkroom before a great final print is made.

Nice printer/some software problems
The printer arrived very quickly and in perfect condition. This was refurbished so it wasn't packed like a new item, but very acceptable. Set up was relatively simple but I had a problem with the printer not recognizing the black ink cartridge as a matte versus photo cartridge so I didn't get the right paper selection. Got help from Epson and this is corrected but still have a problem with the driver upgrade. Will have to call to straighten this out. I had an Epson 2400 before and loved it so this is a great replacement!

Have only had my printer for about 3 weeks, however it is replacing my r1900 which I thought did a great job... This one however would appear to beat it by quite a bit.. I use this to print Photographs that I sell in various locations as well as some portrait photography and have had no complaints to date.
