I have been looking at the R3880 & R3000. In trying to chose the right printer I noticed the listed printer resolution is higher on the R3000.

R3000 = Maximum Resolution 5760 x 1440dpi

R3880 = maximum resolution 2880 x 1440dpi

Could someone please explain this?


Edited to add some newbie questions,

I am leaning towards the 3880 for now, it is actually sitting in my cart at B&H. The only thing that bothers me a little is giving up the roll paper, it just seem so much more convenient. Anybody that has upgraded to the 3880 miss the roll feed? I also don't see an option to print 8x12 with the 3800 so in a case like this do we have to move up to the next size say 11x14 just to print an 8x12 or is there an way around this with in the printer software.

I also need some paper advice or suggestions on a variety of papers to pick up and the places you all prefer to shop for paper. I will probably want more in terms of the few sheets of each that is offered in the variety packs. So I don't think I would mind purchasing say packs of 25 or so. I will probably be printing mostly landscape type stuff, some neutral but contrast HDRI's, a little motor sports again on the contrasty side and then the occasional people pictures. I could also print in B&W in all of the above subjects. Oh, and I very rarely print glossy, not sure why really but I am open to the idea so what subjects are better suited for glossy?

I will through this out there as well. As far as I can tell the deal at B&H is pretty good. They have the standard version of the Epson Stylus Pro on sale right now for 1139.00 with a 300.00 mail in rebate. So 839.00 total. Anybody know where I might save a little more yet?

Thanks everyone,

Scott
