The Epson Stylus Photo R3000 is a color inkjet printer aimed at the photo enthusiast or professional. It produces better quality images than the average model, thanks to the 9-color Epson R3000 ink system, but printer ink is still quite affordable. It handles a wide variety of photo and art media, and can print on very long sizes as well, with support for widths up to 13 inches.
The design of the R3000 is a bit large to make room for its advanced components, but it will still fit comfortably in most small offices. It measures 9 inches by 24.2 inches by 14.5 inches, and weighs 35 pounds. In addition to its support for multiple media types, it can produce border-free prints on a wide variety of media sizes, all the way up to Super B 13x19 size. Along with the USB 2.0 port, wired and wireless networking is built right in as well.
Users can replace printer ink on-the-fly while printing is in progress, which is just another unique feature of the Epson R3000 ink cartridges. The combination of 9 Stylus Photo R3000 ink cartridges provides greater color depth, but Stylus Photo R3000 ink prices are still quite cost-effective, and the cost per page of Epson R3000 ink is affordable.
PC Magazine gave the Epson R3000 their Editor's Choice award, and a rating of 4.5 out of 5. They praised its high-quality photos and graphics, as well as its fast speeds. They disliked the lack of a duty cycle rating, but felt it is a good fit for professionals.
Overall, the Epson R3000 is an impressive photo printer for serious photographers and graphic artists. It can produce excellent prints of "exhibition quality", but still manages to be a good value in its initial price and the long-term running costs.
