Epson Stylus Photo R3000 Review

 

Epson has had a long mainstay in the printer category and with more number of photographers and artists embracing digital photography, a professional photo printer definitely makes for a worthy investment, not only for budding enthusiasts, but also for...

The Epson Stylus Photo R3000 Inkjet Printer is priced at Rs.69,000 (M.O.P). It doesn’t target casual users requiring general everyday printing of say, documents, images or PDFs. The main USP of this device is photo printing and it does that...

Epson Stylus Photo R3000

 

It's now almost 10 years since Epson launched the Stylus Photo 2100. The SP2100 was an instant success due to its use of long lasting UltraChrome pigment inks which claimed a life of 200+ years. Many photographers were now ready to move out of the...

Superb print quality ; Print speed ; Large capacity ink cartridges ; Compact size ; Excellent LCD screen ; Build quality

Price ; Straight paper path is a clumsy operation

The R3000 has many features without too many bells and whistles. The quality of printing is first class, I calibrate my monitor before any printer review so I am confident that it is displaying accurate colours, however I still had to to lighten up the...

Epson Stylus Photo R3000

 

Epson's high-end photo printers—the ones that are aimed at professional photographers and graphic artists as well as serious amateurs—are universally acknowledged as among the best, so it's no surprise that the Epson Stylus Photo R3000 ($849.99 direct)...

Fast. Impressively high-quality photos and graphics. Prints on cut sheets up to 13 by 19 inches. Fine art papers available

Lack of a rated duty cycle makes it unclear how much you can print per month without shortening the printers' useful life

Gorgeous output at fast speed makes the Epson Stylus Photo R3000 of interest to both serious amateurs and professional photographers and graphic artists.

Epson Stylus Photo R3000 Sets the Standard

 

As soon as our Canon Pro-1 review was published, we heard from Epson. You really should take a look at our R3000, they said.

The R3000 handled everything we threw at it. And we threw everything at it.

Epson Stylus Photo R3000: An Affordable, High-Quality Inkjet Printer

 

There are those who make prints often, and there are those who make prints occasionally. The split, you might think, is between amateur and pro, but that's not always the case. Some “amateurs” print as much if not more than some pros, and some pros...

Product Review: Epson Stylus Photo R3000

 

Epson's 13-inch photo printer is best in class but is it the right fit for pros?

Excellent print quality for both color and black-and-white images; Ethernet and WiFi connectivity; automatically swaps Photo Black and Matte black inks; easy-to-use front-in and -out art paper path

Epson's 17-inch 3880 printer is not much more expensive and only a little larger in size; despite bigger ink tanks, R3000 burns through ink quickly; automatic black ink switch still takes a few minutes and wastes some ink

Epson Stylus Photo R3000

 

The Epson Stylus Photo R3000 is an upgrade -- but not a replacement -- for the Epson Stylus Photo R2880 (*Est. $550), which is one of experts' favorite high-end photo printers. The R3000 fixes the R2880's biggest flaw, reviews say: You no longer have...

Superb photo prints, faster printing than the Epson R2880, can print on roll paper, CDs and DVDs, bigger ink tanks are more economical, uSB, Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity, auto-switching between photo and matte black ink
