I have now had my Epson 3880 for about two months.
One word - Fantastic !!!
Easy to install....print quality on Epson papers is beyond my belief...
Truly a professional printer in a small package.
The prints don't "race" out of the machine..but, for the $$$ it's not supposed to be a high speed printer..
I'm stil struggling a bit with Colormonki and insuring the screen looks like what is coming off the printer...but, 90% of the time, I correct a bit here and there and the photos are great for friends and family.
Lots to learn..it's a whole new world..it's not something you just plug and play and expect to have perfect photos everytime..but, like everything..it comes with practice.
Thansk to all the posters who provided help and guidance...great forum info as always !!!
