Epson's Stylus Photo R2880 is a serious, well-designed, and nicely constructed photo printer for photo enthusiasts and professionals who require medium-size, exhibition-quality black-and-white or color prints.

Superb image quality; versatile paper handling; fast; quiet; efficient; easy to set up; prints directly onto DVD/CD discs
