The Epson Stylus Pro 3880 is a color inkjet that combines an easy-to-use control panel and software with professional quality output. The result is a printer with solid print quality that can print an 8x10 photo in as little as 2 minutes. Its upfront price is high, due to its position as a professional machine, but printer ink costs are kept low by the affordable price of Epson 3880 ink.
The 3880 excels at photo printing, especially borderless prints, and can handle media sizes up to 17 by 22 inches. The minimum media size is 4 by 6 inches, which is suitable for borderless 4x6 photo prints. The top feeder can handle up to 120 sheets of plain paper, and up to 20 sheets of photo paper and other media, so printing large numbers of photos can be very quick and streamlined. The included software makes it easy to manage projects and access essential features, and the intuitive control panel is well-suited to both beginners and more advanced users.
The printer ink system is very advanced for an inkjet, incorporating technologies such as AccuPhoto HD2 Screening, which helps to optimize Stylus Pro 3880 ink cartridges and create smoother color transitions. The low cost of Epson 3880 ink cartridges keeps the cost per page manageable, and ensures users won't have to replace Epson 3880 ink often.
In their review of the Epson 3880, PC Magazine gave it a rating of 4 out of 5. They praised its high-quality output and its support for larger formats, as well as the multiple paper feeds. They disliked the lack of paper roll support.
