What the press is saying:
Mac/Life "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)
Outdoor Photographer "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)
PC Photo "With the ability to print 13 x 19 inches and Epson’s professional UltraChrome K3 inkset, the Stylus Photo R2880 is a pro–level printer with a decidedly enthusiast–friendly price. The printer features pigment–based inks that produce exhibition–quality images that stand up to the rigors of time." Staff, PC Photo (12.1.2008)
PDN Online "The Epson Stylus Photo R2880 makes stunning prints. Colors are rich and accurate and thanks, in large part, to the vivid magenta ink, reds, blues and purples are more vibrant than prints made on the R2400" Theano Nikitas, (7.28.2008)
Printerville "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. In fact, its black–and–white prints can rival printers more than twice its price." Rick LePage, Printerville (9.14.2008)
Pro Photographer "While the Epson Stylus Photo R2880 is a very capable color printer, its greatest asset is its monochrome capability. The gray inks make for exceptionally smooth tonal transitions" Mark Levesque, Professional Photographer (12.1.2008)
Layers "The color prints are gorgeous and are only outdone by its incredible black–and–white–prints...you’ll get professional–looking, nice big prints that’ll have you hooked." Scott Kelby, Layers (12.1.2008)

Epson partnered with world-renowned color scientists at the Rochester Institute of Technology to develop Radiance technology, an advanced mathematical architecture that optimizes the use of each color more efficiently to maximize the total color gamut. Radiance also ensures smoother tonality in shadows and highlights, as well as reduced grain and vivid colors that stay consistent in virtually any light. The result is a truer photographic look outstanding image quality.


Advanced Black–and–White Photo Mode

I've been making due with an older Epson Photo EX...can't believe how much the technology has improved since then. The printer is easy to operate, and colors are nothing short of amazing...fine, detailed prints like nothing I've ever been able to produce.

Drawbacks are probably what others mention...the matte black/photo black swapping thing is just silly, the ink cartridges are too small, at highest quality settings the printer's a bit slow, no built-in network interface, and the printer's physically a little on the large size.

Still, for me it's all about the final image quality - and nothing I've seen tops the Epson in this regard.

UPDATE:

Okay, so I've been living with my R2880 for about sixteen months now, and I wanted to refute some of the claims other reviewers have made. Perhaps I'm just one of the lucky ones, but my experience with the R2880 has been nothing short of fantastic.

I've printed well over 2000 prints and gone through dozens of ink cartridges by now, and I'm happy to say that I haven't experienced EVEN A SINGLE JAM, MIS-FEED or other operational problem. I tend to use Epson's Ultra-Premium Luster for 8x10 size prints, Epson Velvet or Exhibition Fiber in 13x19 - and a few non-Epson brands including Museo, Ilford Silk and a few others. I've done a bit with canvas (both sheets and roll), though that's relatively rare for me. The short story is that everything I've tried has worked properly. Overall, I couldn't be happier with my printer.

I do use my printer fairly regularly - always at least once or twice a week, usually more. As of now, except for the cycle when I install a new ink cartridge or initially power it on, I've never seen it waste ink on a cleaning cycle, nor have I ever had to manually trigger cleaning.

I ordered my Epson R2880 about a month ago from Amazon, as a replacement for my trusty old Epson 2000P which was about seven years old. My new printer arrived very promptly a few days later. The Vista software installation went smoothly except for the fact that a couple of the amber "ink-empty" lights did not work properly, one never came on and one was flickering, like on and off. (These little lights are located in the ink well, they all (should) come "on" upon printer startup, then go "off", one by one, as each ink cartridge is inserted into the well.) The first couple of prints I made were not good, but I soon discovered that with this printer use only Epson paper and be sure to select the particular type of paper on the screen before commencing printing. I then printed several color and B/W sample prints, examined them under a loupe, and I must say they were great. I was impressed with the quality.

Everything seems to run smoothly for the first week or so, although I noticed that the printer had a tendency to perform prolonged nozzle cleaning sessions. One session lasted between 6 and 7 minutes. That's when I started to look at the ink levels charts. This printer is really using the ink I thought. I then noticed large random dots, about 3mm in diameter on some of my prints, sometimes only an hour after a new start-up nozzle cleaning session. My last printing endeavor on this printer - just following a nozzle cleaning session - were eight 4x4" images where these dots showed up on five prints, some were in the margins and some right on the image itself.

Calling Epson was quite an experience. The person told me to simply do a nozzle clean. I told him I had just done nozzle cleans, but he insisted and I did it.

I am an artist who creates giclee prints of my paintings, and used an Epson Stylus Photo 2200 for six years. It was a reliable printer which gave me high quality prints. The Epson Stylus Photo 2200 worked great from day one, and I never had to speak with an Epson tech.

I purchased the Epson Stylus Photo R2880 as a replacement printer. It would not print 13" x 19" paper. I kept getting paper jams and error messages stating I was using the wrong media for the paper tray. I spent hours on the phone with Epson techs, who finally told me the printer had a defective paper sensor.

I returned the first Epson Stylus Photo R2880 and purchased a second printer. The second Epson Stylus Photo R2880 not only had the same problems, but it also gave me communication errors. I spent another hour on the phone with an Epson tech who refused to call me back as my calling card ran out of minutes.

In my opinion Epson has inadequate service techs, poor customer service, and a poor quality product in the Epson Stylus Photo R2880. I believe this printer was never tested in a rush to get it to market. The only reason it even deserves one star is because it prints 8.5" x 11" sheets. Because my need is for a printer that prints 13" x 19" sheets, I cannot recommend this printer.

PS. Does anybody know where I can get a refurbished Epson Stylus Photo 2200?

I had an Epson 2200. I loved it. I upgraded to this. I hate it in every way.

You have to swap out the ink from matte to glossy if you change paper types. It insists you do. There is no way around it (There was on the 2200). This means that every time I print on a DVD, I have to switch the ink. To do so, the printer primes itself and literally takes 7-10% of the ink to do it. Then to switch it back there goes another 7%. I have gone through so much ink I can hardly stand to look at it.

Sorry Epson, but the jig is up. This swapping ink system is a scam.

Just for kicks, here is the final straw that triggered this review:

I had just printed a glossy b&W print. Then I needed to print a CD so I switched out the photo-black to the matte-black like a little monkey. As the printer primed the inks, it literally ran itself out the last 10% of both magenta and light cyan. Now I can't print. I have to go to the store and buy more colored ink. Of course this is NUTS since I was only doing black and white prints.

Yuck.
