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

 

Setup is relatively quick and very straight-forward. After unpacking the R3000 from the large box and removing all of the tape and packaging materials, which took around 10 minutes, you plug the printer in and follow the instructions to insert the 9...

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.

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

Disappointing color gamut; High ink costs

The Epson Stylus R3000 is a great printer for the modern artist who needs to be able to print on a wide variety of media and needs to maintain a high level of detail. While the R3000 handles detail in a superb fashion, it suffers from average color...

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

Epson Stylus Photo R3000

 

Photo fiends will all agree on the big picture: There's nothing quite like having your best photos printed large enough to hang on a wall. Most consumer inkjet printers can do a decent job of printing onto 8.5x11-inch photo paper, but to print at...

Prints up to 13 inches wide ; Excellent price ; Superb image quality ; Auto-switches black inks ; Prints to roll paper, CDs/DVDs ; Wi-Fi connectivity

Costlier ink than Stylus Pro 3880 ; Wastes ink when switching certain modes

For serious-hobbyist or semi-pro photographers on a budget, this wide-carriage printer offers superb image quality and value. If you do a lot of printing, though, note that the ink costs are a bit high.
