Customer Reviews of Epson Stylus R280 Inkjet Photo Printer - Color Inkjet - 37 ppm Mono - 38 ppm Color - 11 Second Photo - 5760 x 1440 dpi - PC, Mac
The photo quality level produced incredible photos, and for basic text printing, the "draft" setting provided very fast, legible prints. The paper never jammed in this printer, it was extremely low-maintenance and worked as advertised. bright colors; professional quality; quick printing.
not bad, but not 'photo lab'1/22/2008
The main reason I bought this was because it was free with a rebate when I purchased a camera. I chose this epson model (it was an epson rebate) mainly because of the 'photo' features and CD/DVD printing. I didn't need a scanner because I already have an all-in-one. First off, this thing is HUGE, bigger than my AIO with a scanner bed. Print on CD/DVD is amazing. No complaints. The software is a little simple, it doesn't give you a ton of options, you can't even resize and image and keep it's aspect ratio constant, but the print job looks very professional. I've only tried Memorex DVDs so far, but very happy. Photos are good. The best injet I've used so far. Some prior photo printers I've used have been a Dell 922(terrible), HP run of the mill deskjet (good) and an older HP photojet. This printer, despite all it's "High Definition" claims has a real hard time with hair. We printed some passport photos, my wife has long hair, and the end result ends up pixelated,not sure why. Other fine details come out great. I think it's a software problem and the driver just doesn't handle hair well. I tried the same pics with the same software on the same paper and compared my Dell "photo" 922s with this one. the dell had better detail and resolution when it came to the hair, but otherwise the epson had better colors, depth, sharpness, and it does a pretty good job with skin tones as well. It's still no photo lab though, and ink is pricey. Still cheaper and better to take it to a store when you're printing a bunch at once. But for the occasional need for photos at home it works well.
