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

Verdict: 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 make their own prints only when they have time,...

Pros: CD/DVD direct print, Front panel Pictbridge socket, Easy cartridge replacement
Cons: No memory card readers, Slow on plain paper, Multiple setups can be fiddly
Verdict: If you take photography seriously, either as an enthusiastic amateur or in a semi-professional or professional sense, you need a printer which can reproduce colour and greyscale images with high quality.

Epson Stylus Photo R3000

Pros: Superb photo prints, Can print on roll paper, CDs and DVDs, Bigger ink cartridges are more economical, Auto switches between photo, matte black ink
Cons: Wasteful ink purge during auto switching
Verdict: Still, if you're like me and you print hundreds of prints every week, then I suppose the consumable parts of the printer will wear out long before the rest of it does, as was the case with my R2880.

Epson R3000

 
4.5
Pros: Excellent monochrome results; Vivid natural colours; Impressive detail levels; Quiet print engine
Cons: Larger capacity ink cartridges don't bring huge savings; Print speeds are a tad sluggish
Verdict: The R3000 is the follow-up to Epson's highly-rated R2800 large-format printer. It can handle big sheets of up to A3+ in size and uses a total of nine ink cartridges to deliver more professional quality prints. All this technology doesn't come cheap.

Epson Stylus Photo R3000 Sets the Standard

Verdict: A s soon as our Canon Pro-1 review was published, we heard from Epson. You really should take a look at our R3000, they said. Indeed, the R3000, which beat the Pro-1 to market by several months, has a lot going for it that the Pro-1 does not. Ethernet, for one. And a small pigment droplet size, too.

Epson R3000 review Review

 
4.5
Pros: Excellent monochrome results, Vivid natural colours, Impressive detail levels, Quiet print engine
Cons: Larger capacity ink cartridges don't bring huge savings, Print speeds are a tad sluggish
Verdict: It could be a tad faster and I wish the higher-capacity cartridges had brought more of a saving on ink costs. Neverthless, this larger format printer produces really excellent results, delivering photos with rich contrasts, stunning detail levels and beautifully vibrant colours.

Verdict: That said, what you get for $550 (or perhaps even cheaper if you shop around) is quite impressive. In fact, aside from the lack a few modern mobile connectivity options, the R3000 isn't that much different from the P600.

Pros: Superb print quality, Print speed, Large capacity ink cartridges, Compact size, Excellent LCD screen, Build quality
Cons: Price, Straight paper path is a clumsy operation
Verdict: 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 files with an adjustment layer before printing.

Verdict: Home printing is still very popular with the enthusiast photographer, especially those using more advanced art papers. For printing A3 at home, there are two brands that dominate the market, and Epson has traditionally provided a couple of these models to choose from.

4.0
Verdict: For many enthusiast photographers Epson's Stylus Photo R2880 is the printer they use, or aspire to using. Though it produces excellent prints, it suffers from two often cited problems, both of which the new R3000 addresses.

Epson Stylus Photo R3000 Printer Review

 
4.5
Pros: This printer is capable of stunning output and on the B&W output alone I would be tempted to buy it as a replacement for my existing machine when it finally fails, Printing is very quiet and if using the normal photo-papers very fast, Gloss prints are very good for a pigment printer, excellent on...
Cons: Head strikes and tramlines when using Traditional Photo Paper with borderless prints are unacceptable, Ink consumption during black cartridge swap seems very high (but I believe in line with earlier Epson A3+ printers, so would probably not be a concern for existing Epson users), I have some...
Verdict: We have the Epson Stylus Photo R3000 A3+ printer in for review, who better to review it than someone who sells prints?

Epson Stylus Photo R3000

Verdict: 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 ink cartridges.

Epson Stylus Photo R3000 Pigment Inkjet Printer Review

Verdict: I've owned an Epson 1290 A3 printer for some years now and have loved it like a brother! The 1290 weighs 8.4 kgs with overall dimensions of 609x414x766mm (WHD). Colour: basic beige. The R3000 is quite a different beast: heavy as lead at 15kg and measuring 616x228x369mm, it's styled in black.

4.0
Pros: Prints up to 13 inches wide, Excellent price, Superb image quality, Auto-switches black inks, Prints to roll paper, CDs/DVDs, Wi-Fi connectivity
Cons: Costlier ink than Stylus Pro 3880, Wastes ink when switching certain modes
Verdict: 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.

Epson Stylus Photo R3000

 
4.5
Pros: Fast. Impressively high-quality photos and graphics. Prints on cut sheets up to 13 by 19 inches. Fine art papers available
Cons: Lack of a rated duty cycle makes it unclear how much you can print per month without shortening the printers' useful life
Verdict: 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 is an impressive representative of the breed.

FIRST LOOK: Epson Stylus Photo R3000

Verdict: Photo Review has been given a 'first look' at a pre-production unit of the new Stylus Photo R3000, which was announced in the US on 17 January. This model will sit above the Stylus Photo R2880 at the top of the company's A3+ desktop line-up when it's released in early March.

Verdict: Don't buy this Epson printer before you look up "Epson R3000 black ink blobs." This happened to me after owning this printer just under 2 years--black ink blobs started showing up on all my prints.

Excellent print quality

 
4.0
Verdict: Epson R3000 have produced excellent print quality in my limited use since its delivery. The only negative point will be how long the cartlidges will last and after how many papers printed since the price tag of each cartlidge at the moment is quite pricy.

R3000 Epson - Excellent Product

Verdict: I bought this Printer in May 2014 I have used many printers over the years. This was very simple to setup and install. Software went in very easily. Didn't take long at all. The priming of the ink lines when install ink does take awhile. The print quality was fantastic. Very happy with the product.

Epson Stylus Photo R3000

 
5.0
Verdict: My friend recommended this printer to me and it clearly surpassed my expectations. His printer is an earlier version of mine. Epson really stepped up the options on this model by adding more ink colors/blacks, larger variety of paper/media to print on including - Canvas, CD/DVD, etc.

Print with ease

 
5.0
Verdict: " This product renders colours perfectly with so little work. Scanned professional slides are simply stunning on these great photo papers that Epson provides in so many genres. Was so happy at the very first printing of a complex photography that had been worked on through 6 different programs.

Excellent for discriminating advanced amateur and light professional work.

 
5.0
Verdict: Easy to set up and run. After recalibrating my monitor and the printer, this is the first non-professional printer to consistently produce the color fidelity that I require for images processed in Photoshop. I also like the benefits of not having to change ink cartridges frequently.

Best Results, Colour and Quality

 
5.0
Verdict: My first Epsom for many years, and the best printer, excellent image pint colour and quality. My advise to any user is to match the printer driver to the paper used (if it is not Epson paper). If you get a profile to suit paper and ink you will not be disappointed.

Verdict: It was hard for me to justify the leap to a 13x19" printer because ink and paper is more expensive. But I'm so glad I did it. It was a breeze to set up and and I was printing wirelessly twenty minutes after opening the box.
