Compared to the R2400 the R3000 is a downgrade, imo. Working from Mac OS Mountain Lion its necessary to download printer drivers rather than insert a cd. Down load took over 2.5 hrs. - an unacceptably long time. Paper size selection, for sizes not...

Best Wireless Large Format Printer, Period!


The Epson R3000 hands down is the best wireless large format printer for home use hands down. I've owned this printer since it's release. My Photo Studio is upstairs and my office is located down stairs. Going wireless makes for easy work flow.

Professional prints


This is my first consumer/pro printer. I find the printer very strait forward and easy to use. There is a small learning curve with the color profiles with individual programs and other settings. The printing is absolutely incredible. The colors are...
