What the press is saying:
| || "An eight-cartridge ink system includes special magenta pigments for breathtaking tonal range in color prints. But where the R2880 really excels is in the grayscale reproduction of black-and-white prints. Three levels of black pigments and a special Black-and-White Photo Mode eliminate all of the unfortunate color casting that occurs in black-and-white prints from lesser photo printers... The R2880 is the artist's choice. We love it." Staff, Mac/Life (12.2009)|
| || "With the ability to print 13x19 inches and Epson’s professional UltraChrome K3 ink set, the Stylus Photo R2880 is a pro–level printer with a decidedly enthusiast–friendly price." Staff, Outdoor Photographer (12.1.2008)|

| || "For anyone interested in black and white printing, the R2880 is a stunner. On both matte and glossy media, the R2880’s output is drop–dead neutral, with the widest tonal range of any printer we’ve seen under $1,000.
