Epson R3000


from Walton, NY

Very pleased with R3000. Print quality is beautiful and the ink switching from gloss to matte is so much improved over 2880.




from NYC  -  Frequent User

Cost of Ink is Way To high !!!


epson 3000


from albany, ny

good quality photo prints and anything with a photo. text quality not as good. /very large footprint. Very slow printing. Takes a long time to switch to Matt Black and back again and uses a large amount of ink. This would not be my first choice again.


An Excellent Printer for the Enthusiast


from Los Angeles, CA

This is an excellent printer from the point of view of a fabulous looking output, which is most important. I was impressed with how easy the wireless networking was to set up. Paper handling is good too. I've used plain paper for testing and Epson photo paper, as well as a few printable DVDs - all worked well. It is also rather slow, especially when it's doing maintenance. Again, the printed results are fabulous.


Epson R3000


from Undisclosed

Great printer, best photo quality yet, but has problems printing envelopes. It prompts you to put the CD tray in which does not work.

Continued ink clogging


from Metuchen, NJ

I received the R3000 in January. After about 6 weeks it was hopelessly clogged and after 6 cleanings it still couldn't produce a decent nozzle check. I returned it to Epson & they sent me a refurbished unit. That clogged up after 2 weeks. Got another one. Have had it now for about 10 days. Same problem. Thirteen (yes, 13!) cleanings later it is still clogged up and I'm fed up too. I had a Pro 4000 and loved it. But this one...forget about it.




from Beaumont, Ca.

I received this printer yesterday. It came via UPS well boxed and protected. I set it up to use via my wireless network. Epson said I had two choices to set it up: 1) use of a temporary USB cord (which they recommended or..... 2) go another route and use the screen on the front of the printer. I tried #1 which did not work. When I tried the #2 method, it set up instantly with no problems. I ran a test sheet and then printed a photograph after installing the ink, etc. Everything went great. I love this printer; you will do. It does a terrific job and prints flawlessly.


Epson Stylus Photo R3000 Printer


from Akron, Ohio

I previously had an Epson 2200 Printer which gave me 12 years of service. I find the R3000 replacement to be quieter. The color photos are excellent. I do have to learn how to print on plain paper as a default setting.

Software for Mac


from Massachusetts

Have not been able to try new printer as I am unable to find the correct driver for the latest Mac OS 10.10.2 Yosemite. My new R3000 is not in the mac list either in Epson support or the latest Mac update. Very frustrated. Had to give it one star because of this!
