Along with being the best in its class, new features on the 3880 including its AccuPhoto HD2 Image Technology which noticeably improved print quality, make this model among the finest printers Epson has ever produced. And that's saying something." Dan Havlik - PDN (Photo District News) (12.22.2009)
"The Epson Stylus Pro 3880 is the best 17-inch pigment printer out there right now if you don't mind printing strictly on cut sheet paper. (Roll feed power users might want to look at the 4880. But along with being the best in class, new features on the 3880 including its AccuPhoto HD2 Image Technology which noticeably improved print quality, make this model among the finest printers Epson has ever produced. And that's saying something" Staff, PDNGearGuide.com (10.9.2009)
"The Epson 3880 is a tool that provides the photographer with the same quality output when compared to printers costing thousands of dollars more.

AccuPhoto HD2 technology
Created from a collaboration between Epson and the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Munsell Color Science Laboratory, AccuPhoto HD2 combines a complex mathematical architecture and advanced screening technology to provide outstanding image quality. AccuPhoto HD2 is specifically engineered to ensure precision placement of each individual ink droplet, resulting in smooth, grain-free images. Choosing from an extraordinary number of possible ink combinations for each color, this technology optimizes ink usage to maximize the color gamut and provide smooth color transitions and gradations. Reduction of the metameric index makes it possible to achieve consistent color under different lighting conditions. And, it ensures truly photographic prints, even in high-speed or lower resolution print modes.
Advanced MicroPiezo print head with AMC
Our advanced MicroPiezo print head with AMC (Advanced Meniscus Control) is at the core of Epson’s advanced ink jet technology, enabling the Epson Stylus Pro 3880 to deliver incredible detail. This permanent, high-performance print head creates variable-sized droplets as small as 3.5 picoliters and places them with remarkable accuracy and precision. This professional print head also incorporates an ink-repelling coating which decreases maintenance and increases reliability. Working together with Epson PreciseColor technology, the print head delivers consistent print quality every time from every Epson Stylus Pro 3880.
Advanced Black-and-White Photo Mode
Part of an advanced workflow, this exclusive technology is your key to intuitive and consistent control, for stunning neutral or toned black-and-white prints. Choose from one of four present menus — neutral, warm, cool or sepia. Or, fine tune your image further with custom slider bars and the color tone wheel that gives you precise control.
