p.2 #1 · p.2 #1 · Epson 3000 vs 3880


Someone recommended to use Qimage for printing. They said it will be better than printing from LR4. Anyone would like to comment on this.

I imagine you would do your editing in LR and then move to Qimage for print.

$619 for the 3000

When you factor in the 56ml more ink at about $250 more, for the 3880, it appears the bang for the buck goes to the 3880. As ink is what is costly.

Other + for the 3880 is, it can handle a larger paper if needed. Also read in another thread here, that folks owning the 3880 did not have clogged nozzles when not using printer for periods of time.

In a nut shell is the 3880 the better printer vs the 3000.

Only thing that is not totally clear....will

Where did you find a 3880 for $859??

I have used Qimage for several years. It takes a lot of the worry a fidgeting out of printing. I wouldn't want to be without it.

BTW: If you are going to try your hand at fine art printing, you might want to try out a paper called Inkpress Rag. I use Cool Tone. B&H and Adorama have good prices on it.

The 3880 is a great printer. 13 by 19 inch. print costs $2 for quality glossy paper and $4 for ink. When I got it from Amazon.com they threw in free ink. Unlike any other printer I have had the 3880 does not clog up when not used for months. Light enough that I can move the printer myself.

If you are using $4 worth of ink on a 13 x 19 inch sheet, then something is wrong. Ink costs are less than $1 per sq ft.
