I have to upgrade my printer in the next 2 weeks. The 2880 has been a nice quality unit but it cannot keep up with my demands for ink. I print 75 5x7's each Saturday and then again Sunday, as well as 10 or so 11 x 14's. I am always running out of ink. As long as I am upgrading, is there any REAL benefit in going up to the 4880 instead of the 3880 in print quality ?? I know this capacity changes with ink so I can run those numbers. What I am looking for is input about some things I may not know. There is a $500 rebate now on the 4880, which drops the net price to around $1500. The 3880 is down to about a grand now. Space is no issue....I have plenty. Will I get anything that is a step change better in the 4880 than I get with the 3880 other than more ink and a bit larger prints ???
In your opinions.....is the extra money for the 4880 worth it for someone like me ??
